Track Name: Apparitions (Sweet!!!)
apparitions (sweet!!!)
written by brian spekis

there’s a fire somewhere out there tonight
vampires took me to a great height
on the hill above town, we saw…

disappear whenever back is turned
never fear for life will be adjourned

on the hill above town, we saw apparitions
open the gates to the end of the world

can you fly, vampire?
Track Name: I Got A D.U.I., Babe
i got a d.u.i., babe
written by brian spekis

stepped out of the bar
got into my car

i got a d.u.i., babe
can’t drive you around today

spent the night downtown
next day they let me out

i got a d.u.i., babe
can’t drive you around today
can’t get you mocha latte

anything i ever said about love
was just the whiskey talkin’
my head’s got a secret back door
and the devil he’ll come a-knockin’

ain’t ever had a sleepless night
without that bottle by my side
i can’t say the same about you
Track Name: No, We Are Not Naming Our Kids After Ikea Products
no, we are not naming our kids after ikea products
written by brian spekis

must be a dream
sent from her last scream
sent across moonbeam
fleeting at the break of dawn

parlez-vous francais?
oh, babe

took care of her feet
a shoe for each retreat
drank her scotch neat
living every day to swan
Track Name: Running Red Lights
running red lights
written by brian spekis

turn the headlights on high
shaky shine in my eyes
i go running red lights
ease my mind through the night

ain’t got no rearview
some friends knocked it off
roll me down a window
listen to the road talk

let the air rollercoaster through your hair
get me there
destination anywhere


turn the headlights off
i dare myself sometimes
on those back-of-my-hand roads
i go running red lights
