about

The rock and roll synthesis born from thousands of hours sitting next to a record player. The voices of rock's vanguard soaked into The Strips' very souls.

This is just the beginning.

From basements to attics, and now to you.

Track Name: Farmers Market Princess
I see her through my hazy eyes
her charm and beauty are no surprise
I think I've been sensationalized
but I'm going to walk away

wrestling with my own fate
it's hard for me to concentrate
I don't want to desecrate
wish this were another day

I see her through my hazy eyes
her charm and beauty are no surprise
I think I've been sensationalized
but I'm going to walk away

she's a farmers market princess
her world is stuck in distress
it's time for me to impress her

she's a farmer's market princess
love that little sundress
I really need to invest in her

grab her hand and walk with her
nothing else I would prefer
but talk right now my words will slur
so I'm going to walk away

something perfect would be stunning
if only I were twice as cunning
forever she will be runnin
through my thoughts one way

grab her hand and walk with her
nothing else I would prefer
but talk right now my words will slur
so I'm going to walk away

and I just want to walk you home
but sweet darling I need to be alone
I just want to take you home
why'd I get so fucking stoned

she's a farmers market princess
her world is stuck in distress
it's time for me to impress her

she's a farmer's market princess
love that little sundress
I really need to invest in her

she's a farmers market princess
her world is stuck in distress
it's time for me to impress her

she's a farmer's market princess
love that little sundress
I really need to invest in her

and I just want to walk you home
but god dammit I need to be alone
I just want to take you home
why'd I get so fucking stoned
Track Name: How Far is too Far
I've gone far enough
it's time to readjust

I'm waking up way too early
I'm staying up far to late
I been thinking just a bit too hard
about everyone that I hate
I was never here to converse
my words take a turn for the preverse
easy is something you have never been
all I did was prove another wrong again

I've gone far enough
it's time to readjust
I've made another scar
how far is too far

I take all that I'm perscribed
but I will never comprehend
I've used a million different objects
and they dont link up my loose ends
I thought I had so much potential
feeling good is essential
if everyone is given a reward
then greatness will only be ignored

I've gone far enough
it's time to readjust
I've made another scar
how far is too far
Track Name: Back Shack Black Crow
I think I might be out in the cold
I hear the screeches back shack, black crow
fill my mason jar without control
no longer burning brass flask glass soul

homegrown loser, full time boozer
homegrown loser, full time boozer

the cycle's starting, another day
I can't remember, blind, endless date
I'm never leaving or wish I could
no more future closed door for good

homegrown loser, full time boozer
homegrown loser, full time boozer
homegrown loser, full time boozer
homegrown loser, full time boozer
