lyrics

I gutted my VCR just to see what was inside
All the wires and the buttons intertwined carefully
Melted into the carpet lining

I played my little guitar with my shoelaces on fire
It's getting harder to breathe
Are we sure oxygen is flowing up the wire?

Can't you see what I've done?
Lean in closer
You just wonder if I am gonna hurt someone

Shoved a needle up my nose just to see what you would say
It was the plunger's end all the insulin depleted it's non-existence again
Found my teeth halfway down my throat by that hallway up the road
Where we picked rotten berries and kissed on the mouth
After that rusty string-band show

Don't wanna see what you've done
My eyes deceive me
You just wonder if I am gonna hurt someone

"TV's dead," I forgot who had said
"It's time for another video killed the radio-type song again"

Poured my coffee in a mason jar and it shattered all over the floor
What possessed me, mom? I'm not sure why it's all part of my interior design
I'm just a little kid trapped in this misshapen body
Granted with a chance and a small megaphone
Who's next in line to deny me?

Can't you see this isn't fun? Erase the fever
You just wonder if I'm gonna hurt someone

"TV's dead" I forgot who had said
"It's time for another video killed the radio-type song again"
"TV's dead" I forgot who had said
"It's time for another video killed the radio-type song again"

I gutted my VCR just to see what was inside
All the wires and the buttons intertwined carefully
Melted into the carpet lining

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.
