we'll never fix me and my guitar but okay let's keep trying it seems to keep the brain occupied well at least at my end we'll never fix this old complication but my heart feels like and overcrowded train station whenever they mention your name and i'm just fine playing that game and while others climb the mountaintops i crawl the wall up and while others put up a tent at the summit i enjoy the view from the ceiling for a while and then plummet this runs on love and duct tape we'll never find the mystical fountain of youth and so this car will eventually break down but as long as there's still a chance of drivin it to your door i'll wrap some duct tape around we'll never fix any old thing but we can wrap some love around the part that stings and put it over there in the bookshelf until i am old thing myself and while others climb the mountaintops i crawl the wall up and while others put up a tent at the summit i enjoy the view from the ceiling for a while and then plummet this runs on love and duct tape

Peachy 03:11
oh a brand new morning has begun the sun was smiling at me, i was fake smiling at the sun everything seemed to be completely in tune expect for me and my bad mood - they told me theres no reason to complain but then i found the problem the problem was my brain the day was almost over, it went down fine, and pretty sober but i was in a steady decline they gave me a gin tonic and said your mopeyness is chronic - they asked me whats your reason to complain i wasnt sure but then i found the problem the problem was my brain cause its not easy to feel peachy

Pizza Pants 02:15
it's been a messy ride since i've been on this earth but i measure my age not by the distance from my birth but by the urgency and the frequency that i go out to the pharmacy there's no way im gonna win this so i put on my pizza pants, trading onions for opinions and in those straight edge days when i had the food poisoning blues my own mortality became an uncomfortable truth couldn't hold in any of the fries or the mayonnaise ready to hug the toilet bowl till the end of days there's no way im gonna win this so i keep on my pizza pants, trading onions for opinions

about

The Black Elephant Band Nuremberg, Germany

„[...] ungeschliffene, gestochen scharf auf den Punkt kommende, englischsprachige
Songminitaturen voll von schrägem Humor und bitterbösen Weltbetrachtungen, die schlecht
gestimmte Gitarre schnörkellos rudimentär, die Stimme ein wütendes Knurren, kaum ein Lied
länger als zweieinhalb Minuten. Wunderbar!“ (NN)

"Schräger Antifolk mit Bart, Klampfe und Mundharmonika. Zum Verlieben!" (A&F)
