Steve Chab If Weezer played a mix of prog and shoegaze, this would be it. Great album, but I'm disappointed by their live shows due to the singer's potty mouth. Favorite track: Cemetery Secretary.

Track Name: Dance Me Home
dance me home
written by brian spekis

she prefers jams from way up north
watching her bangs swing back and forth
i feel like i swallowed butterflies
a few more drinks and the timidness dies

come on, babe and dance me home
into the dark of night unknown
by the grace of arthur conley go i

stumble my way up and down her hall
piles of clothes, i trip and fall
she painted a canvas of butterflies
inspired by warhol’s in ‘55
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: Turn Me Around
turn me around
written by brian spekis

it ain’t easy to say
i’d like to be thirty someday
all the shots i’ve had are gone
who’s buying the next round?

i always wanted you back
i got the proof on my 4-track
what we once had has been lost
and i’m not turning around

what time are you coming over tonight?
two lonely hearts in the dark of night collide
i don’t want to be alone for the rest of my life

i always yawn when you yawn
the circumference turns me on
all the thoughts i’ve had on us
are starting to turn me around
Track Name: Cemetery Secretary
cemetery secretary
written by brian spekis

it’s been a while she said with a smile
since we walked where dead lay
watch as her eyes go from name to name
follow the path, babe

secretary in a cemetery
laughing mess in a shirtdress
turns on the radio and waits for her song

an apple is peeled, two kisses i steal
a cypress tree waves to me
a lack to perceive the respect to grieve
there’s underground wrath, babe

secretary in a cemetery
laughing mess in a shirtdress
turns up the radio and dances to her favorite song
Track Name: Run For Cover
run for cover
written by brian spekis

oh, you’re gonna run for cover
for the rest of your life
regretting all over
over and over again

yeah, you got my number
call and let me know you’re alive
i’ve seen too many summers
go by in the blink of an eye
a heart is only as strong
as the person it drives

oh, you learn a few things
when you’re on your own for a while
regretting all over
over and over again

you’re burned in the back of my mind
in the dark i can still see your eyes
regretting all over
over and over again
Track Name: Interesting, Yes You Are
interesting, yes you are
written by brian spekis

there ain’t no need for traveling
with all the photos i’ve been collecting

confusion from on high embodied
gal, it ain’t no lie

two nights staggering toward a bloody nose
the twilight ain’t kind to the pigeon-toed

interesting, yes you are
another night, another bar
yesterday is tomorrow’s way out

interesting to say the least
swig the wine and curse the priest
laughing in the shadow of a doubt

the bedsheets think i need a vacation
four wall isolation

four years and a degree later
just another bitter curator
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
