about

The first single off the new album, "Amusing Ourselves to Death"

lyrics

I'm a loveseat missing a cushion
And you're the tramp
That I happened to fall in love with again
Go to the thrift shop, pick up some pillows
To hide my springs
Popping out my seams

That blue bag of cash you tossed out your window
Might've killed a couple birds
But at least your car don't smell like trash
An auto mechanic can't fix that for you
Without ID and a thumbprint for social security

I'm a ballpoint pen
Leaking through the pocket
Of your new stupid collared shirt
Where does the fun end
And when does it begin to all make sense
I'm tripping on a cord that does not exist
Someone patch up this vision
Cause if I tell the truth, I'll lose my youth
And I'll be stuck in this television

I'm a loveseat missing a cushion
And you're the tramp
That I happened to fall in love with again
Go to the thrift shop, pick up some pillows
To hide my springs
Popping out my seams

I'm a ballpoint pen
Leaking through the pocket
Of your new stupid collared shirt
Where does the fun end
And when does it begin to all make sense
I'm tripping on a cord that does not exist
Someone patch up this vision
Cause if I tell the truth, I'll lose my youth
And I'll be stuck in this tele-
In this television

about

The Paint Splats Dayton, Ohio

An unhealthy blend of power pop melodies that grew up listening to garage rock and the man shouting obscenities from the comfort of a street corner.
