about

A collection of bummer tunes found in a chest smothered by the stench of smoke.

credits

released August 5, 2016

Coo Coo Bad Brains at the time of the recording consisted of Colton (vocals, guitar, noise), Adam (vocals, guitar, bass, synth), James (bass), and Lazlo (drums). Donato now plays bass.

Rest in pepperoni James. Donato will never let your flame die out.

Track Name: Vanity Plate
wait in the car
i'll make a call

wait in the car
i won't take too long
you won't remember who we are

we don't talk much
it's not the same
we take too much
everything's the same
i forgot his name again

i was leaving
for a good reason

when it is over
it will start again
there is no difference
it never ends
Track Name: Chunk
tampering with my legs shaved
shelter in a pillow room
i'll gently rage
bedfellows in my dreams
tell me not to leave i beg you please
frantically changing thought
run to the basement door my sight is gone

i fell down
i fell down
it all went black
as i stood up

no medication for me please
i'd stay away from drugs I like to be
breathless in the other room
melt in the silence of our conversation
blanket pattern of stars
run to the basement door my sight is gone

i fell down
i fell down
it all went black
as i stood up
Track Name: Soap Scum
a broken down saturn approaches me
with the smell of cigarettes and weed
take a seat lets go
to your second home
away from here
cause we can't stay

i'll blend in today
no one noticed me
feeling hard to love
feeling weird above
i want to stay inside
i'll never figure it out

a cavernous personality
and you can't sit very comfortably
separate yourself from you so-called friends
cause they don't care for you today

i'll blend in today
no one noticed me
feeling hard to love
feeling weird above
i want to stay inside
i'll never figure it out
Track Name: Toyotathon
shut the blinds in the room
enough to walk, but not to run
cast the line, spark the flint
puff a smoke, don't say shit
i wanted her, but she said no more
ignore the bullshit, sorry i swore
can't maintain under pressure
find the comfort in the liquor
cowboy boots, and tarnished glasses
sing the chorus to the masses
i wonder if i'll ever feel right
though about it through the whole night
vicious cycle, untold pleasure
tantalizing beyond measure
faint breath, stale air
make it stop. i can't bare.
teeth clenched, spit out blood
find a noose in the mud
tell her things to make her feel bad
all i want is to stay mad
make her cry, tears of paint
this is why she cant relate
can't compare, don't compare
to the life you can't share
let me go, let her go, let it go
fine, fine, fine, fine, fine
time to die.
Track Name: Friends
in the morning i won't make coffee
i'm tired of talking when they don't know me
the time we crammed 6 in a hotel
you promised not to lose me in the crowd

i'm left out of plan's with my friends
everything is fine, i'm melodramatic
when i'm high, i'm not that social
happy i'm the only one i take care of
Track Name: Cooper
i'm an asshole
i fucked you over
come over red rover

i'm an asshole
i fucked you sober
red rover come over
