about

In December 2012, we went into Milkboy The Studio to begin work on the 14 songs that would wind up on Send Out The Creatures.

In between recording sessions, we also wrote these nine songs and decided that, though they wouldn't make the full-length record, we wanted to share them with everyone.

We recorded these at home and in reality make up enough music to qualify as a full-length record.

Please do enjoy Happen So Good.

Plug in
you hat throwers
You're not that old yet

Vampires of the trash heap
Supporters of all sinners
Collectors of the dream
but local and alone

This is all I can give you
This is all I can say
I've been torn through to pieces for you

Clock out
They said slow down
But the ether is speaking
so as long as we're breathing we're on

From my grandfather's bones to not settling down
We have ransacked your homes and we've slurred all our nouns
We're punch drunk and violent and puffed
Powered by Radon

This is all I can give you
This is all I can say
I've been torn through to pieces for you

This is all on the record
This was all for a name
I have loved every minutes of this

This is all I can give you
This is all I can say
I've been torn through to pieces for you
Track Name: Hydraulic Sunrise
I'm calling out to you, the one I'm seeking out
I've caught an uncomfortable heat
and I'm sold on selling all myself for you

Setting all my impulses aside
killed me slow but kept the idea alive
that this hydraulic sunrise was both yours and mine

Did I ever leave you alone?
No!

It was written on your face that I am a crusher
and this is the end of the open mouth period

"Can we take it slow?" Osmosis never works
and I'm drilling holes in your head
But, no, we can't sweat out my mistakes
So we had a month and maybe more
But ignorance is just so awfully warm
So now that I'm not out of it, I'm out of here

Did I ever leave you alone?
No!
No!
No!

It was written on your face that I am a crusher
and this is the end of the open mouth period

(My purchasing power is no match for your resolve)
Track Name: Sometimes Always Never
Was there a moment or a feeling
when your eyes aimed toward the ceiling
and the lies you'd been repeating
couldn't stand the test of time?

When the shot it hit and landed
well, it went right through my hand which
in precaution had been placed with
a lung dying just to fail

Then our dollar it depleted
our careers were superseded
some impossible arrangement
we'd arranged somewhere somehow

Exercising our frustrations
we all walked on graduation
to a tune we'd all be trained in
that should be extinct by now

'cause we're all full of shit
and the lives that we live
are impossible fragments of a being
But we won't be afraid
at the top of the stage
and we won't be ashamed of our outfits

Calling out to hope you come
Calling out to see you go
I am not gonna wait
I am not gonna wait

But I won't be afraid
at the top of the stage
and I won't be ashamed of my outfit
And I won't stick around
if you're the talk of the town
but I'll still be attending his services
Track Name: Singled Out
Singled out
Singled out
Singled out
I've waited
And wanted you to
To come around
Come around
Come around
And whisper
And bother me till

Your laugh surrounds
Invades the air
That's held me down
A small, unconscious sound
To believe

I don't see
As many friends
As many friends
As back then
Just a handful now and again
A tired truth
A tired truth
A tired truth
They bought us
They warned us

But we still have our time
The crowded rooms
The smallest signs
A stereo and a glance
To believe

A gentle move
A gentle move
Our clothes are strewn
In the daylight
With the shades pulled tight and I see
Your tangled hair
A knowing stare
A knowing stare
You see me
I believe.
Track Name: Happen So Good
Happen so good
Track Name: Pedro Arrupe
I was staring off into space
thinking abotu statues of your face and
wondering if I am the only one
who would think so much about someone I could not know
But that's OK
It never stopped Pedro Arrupe and
though that's OK
I'd rather watch from afar just to see how it plays
plays

I put my faith in the dream machine
for conversations that I don't mean

I was staring at your hands
wondering just who has been inside of them
and thinking that you are the only one
who I haven't seen for years but who can still make me hum
But that's all right
It never stopped Simeon Stylites and
that's just all right
'cause how things should be just make me shiver at night
night

I put my faith in the dream machine
for conversations that I don't mean

I know we're standing on the Earth
and that there's only one of you in the universe
It's a shame that we can never be
because maybe with you I could be a better me
Track Name: In The Past
Packing up is hard to do
In a place and then you're not
You drink and then you spill
You climb and then you stop

Taking on the world is tough
But there's no one 'cept for you
(thinking 'bout the other ones)
who I'd rather it have been than you

We will not come down
from our spot in the clouds
slowly waving hello
from the past
We will be together
with our hands still tethered
singing loud for you all
in the past

Leaving this will be so sad
The best friends I've ever had
Who has done much more for me?
The entity we've grown to be
Now I'll shoulder all this load
Set out on another road
I know I can count on you
I hope you can do that, too

We will not come down
from our spot in the clouds
slowly waving hello
from the past
We will be together
with our hands still tethered
singing loud for you all
in the past
