steveinsocal "...4 knockout tracks in 7 minutes equals brilliant fun! The second half of the EP - musically at least - owes as much in common with the early-Eighties UK DIY post-punk scene as it does Twee - the songs are more guitar-focused and feature an up-beat refrain, but pithy and keenly observational lyrics remain at their centre..." Favorite track: Rental.

Track Name: Peter
Take me out to a game
I want to see the baseball players
Playing a game of baseball

Take me out to a bar
I want to see how much you can really drink
Is it as much as they say?

Would you be impressed
If I told you
I could play guitar?

Take me out to a club
I’ll stand against a wall
Please, I insist, don’t take my hand

Take me out to a yard
One that is full of junk
I’ll pick up some trash and call it art

Would you be impressed
If I told you
I could play guitar?

I play it poorly
I play it poorly
But it’s the words that matter
Or so I tell myself
Track Name: Log Cabin
I built my life around you
I based my life around that fact

And you, you, you can tell it’s pathetic
Oh you, you know that it’s true

And I can’t handle simple things
Like when I meet someone new

Call someone’s phone number
No one picks up
That’s the story of my life

Why do I try?
It’d be easier not to
Track Name: Rental
I hate my life and I hate my job
I hate my boss when I look at him
Julie calls in to lose a shift
I’m stuck here, oh what a bitch

Driving driving
The pain must end
Driving driving
In your car

I clock out and it’s ten to twelve
Go to a party with all my friends
Everyone I hate is standing there
Sit in a corner and drink to death
Track Name: Unreal Tournament
You tell me to stay across a room
But I know it’s a game

If I was wrong I think I would know
If I was wrong I think I would know

You tell me I struck a nerve
Who cares
I wish I could but I’m fucked

if it was a competition
I think I would know
I’d have you bleeding when I want

You tell me lies
To keep me sharp
You tell me lies
All the time
