the band regretfully would like to make a film. er, excitedly.

hi everyone.

i’ve decided to spend lots of energy (and maybe some money) on producing a video for an ieatpants song. but here is the dilemma, which song to choose? i mean, they’re all poorly recorded in my bedroom, so forget that standard.

i would like you to do me a favor… tell me which song to use. you see, it’s very difficult for me to stand back from the songs and decide which would make the best video. i just want to make sure i’ve made a wise choice before i make a big investment.

so, these are my final candidates:

  1. are you sleepy (i think i might be the only one who still likes this one)
    download the mp3
  2. that wasn’t cocaine after all
    download the mp3
  3. leave a little room in the glass for my lime (a very silly demo that i just recorded on sunday)
    download the mp3
  4. what’s the world gonna say when you’re gone?
    download the mp3
  5. you do what you like
    download the mp3
  6. the day we gave up
    download the mp3
  7. low cure (instrumental, but i like the building and the imagery of the layers of sound)
    download the mp3
  8. bahgdad summer (this one is a demo but has my favorite guitar solo that i’ve ever recorded in it)
    download the mp3

what’s your favorite song? did i miss one? is this whole thing fucking stupid? (no offense to stupid people)

once i decide on a song, the fun really begins. i may have a kickstarter link up here in a couple weeks, so there will probably be an even more awkward request forthcoming… (uncomfortably tugs on collar).

thanks!!

save a little room in my glass for a lime

lots of silliness here.
but also heartbreak.
whatever, it’s a fun song about limes.

Lyrics:

it’s whiskey and lime time
leave a little room
at the top of the glass
for my lime

i don’t want any lime
or whiskey or ice
spilling on the ground
this time

well it’s late at night
i’m having trouble closing my eyes
i’ll just remember that time
you saved a little space… for my lime

it’s whiskey and lime time
leave a little room
at the top of the glass
for my lime

when the sun is too bright
i have trouble looking into the sky
i’ll shield my face with two giant limes
and i’ll laugh and think of our good times

and on a long flight
and we’ve just said our goodbyes
i’ll pretend i can still see you
on the runway
in your hands
two limes
waving goodbye

a song about a dream about some friends

i woke up this morning and wrote this song about a dream i had.
my friends zack and paul were in it and i guess i miss those guys.

Lyrics:

zack and paul
paul and zack
what they don’t know
is that they’re never coming back
to NYC
to NYC

paid in print
dashed the facts
against the rocks
sometimes fact checkers are wrong
in NYC
in NYC
they tried
to pay their way
but i won’t
have it that way
oh, it’s gotta be my way

zack and paul
paul and zack
what they don’t know
is that they’re never coming back
to NYC
