about

"I made this EP to commemorate all the life and spirit lost working as a dishwasher in a restaurant. I wrote a bunch of songs that all had something to do with how great it was to quit my job and then I hired KC Green to do cover art because I thought if anybody could capture how terrible it is to work at a restaurant, it'd be him." -Cy Parker

Check out the full-length lyric video too. A cut up version of a horror movie so that it's short and you can still kinda follow the plot! But with lyrics to this album over it!

Track Name: Get Away
i couldn't wash even one more plate
not one more fork or spoon

i couldn't wait even one more second
i had to get away
and all my friends had flown the coop
cuz i was the last chicken
and i wasn't gonna stay another second
even if it burned a bridge
and i wish that i'd been more careful
i wish i'd stood up for me

that's the price you pay for cowardice
that's the price you pay for coward
i suppose i should have been a little braver

trapped there standing there
cracks in the ground
i can't stay here one more
and i would stand my ground
and i try to run it down

i am the water on the ground
i am the water everywhere
i am the water underground
that's the price you pay for coward
i suppose

get away
get away
take away
something from this experience
get away
get away
take away something home with you
get away
get away get away
get away
get away
get away and take something home with you so you can get away
get away
get away
get away
get away
take something home with you so you can get away
Track Name: Loves It Like I Love It
if i were still in love i'd tell you
how it means to be true
and if i had a heart i'd let you
hear its beating too
nobody really loves it like i love it
nobody really cares the way you do
you do

nobody wants to learn how to care truly
nobody
no one but you

nobody really loves it like i love it
nobody really cares the way you do
you do

nobody really loves it like i love it
nobody really cares the way you do
you do
you do, you do

and it doesn't matter how you sleep at night
as long as you still can feel alright in the daytime
but i'm still in love
that's why i tell you
but i still will care
i still will care

you do
you do

claim you love me if you want
it doesn't make it true
you love me you love me you do

nobody really loves it like i love it
nobody really cares the way you do
you do
you do
Track Name: Slay Me at Sunrise
hold me just a little bit closer to your chest
slay with me a python

i've got something else to ride on
straighten me out at sunset
i'll start by turning the iron on
and the fire's burning brighter
each and every single day
so slay me with a python
i've got something else to slay

and i don't wanna take away
the things that you need to
the things you need to do
the things you need to do

so let me replace your things
and i'll take those away
and we can keep on changing
we can do this every day

hold me just a little bit closer to your chest
you know i'm your enemy
so don't let me get far away

slay me with a python
i've got nothin' left to go on
and keep on stoking the fires
i've got pills and bills to pay
and i've got something better still
things left to do in the day

and when the daylight finally dawns
i've got something left to slay

hold me just a little bit
closer to your chest
you know i'm your enemy
so don't let me get far away

and i don't wanna take away
the things that you need to
the things you need to do
the things you need to do

so let me replace your things
and i'll take those away
and we can keep on changing
we can do this every day

hold me just a little bit
closer to your chest
you know i'm your enemy
so don't let me get far away
Track Name: More Sunscreen (Let Nature Take Control)
takin' it
takin' it's not what i do any more
and i've been here before
i remember the colors on the wall
i heard 'bout the fall
and i heard 'bout the spring
and that's about the time when i began to sing

now i walk away
cuz it feels so right
and now i swim away
because the water's nice

and i am the water and i am the ground
and i've said it all before
and i am the water and i am the sky
and i've said it all before
so come on now

we'll let nature take control
we'll let the sun shine in
we'll let nature nature take control
and this is ground control
we're calling in
we need more sunscreen
just let us begin
we'll spread it on our skin

let nature take control
let nature take control

takin' it
takin' it's not what i do any more
and i've been here before
i remember the colors on the wall
i heard 'bout the fall
and i heard 'bout the spring
and that's about the time when i began to sing

come on
we don't take control
we don't have to take it slow
we can begin if we want to
at the pace we want to
we can leave when we've got to
let nature take control
let nature take control
we need more sunscreen

we need more sunscreen
let nature take control
but we have sunscreen
sunscreen for you and me
Track Name: Machines Speak For Me
you break your back
so that you have the time
the time to figure out out

and i don't really have a word to help you
if you don't have that

but if you keep working
you can maybe make it good
and if you just keep working
you can maybe get out soon

baby it's a fool's game
a fool's game to stand upon
you are just a loser
just like everyone else

and i don't really have to say a word here
i've let machines do all my talking for me

and i am gonna trade all of my humanity away
maybe that'll make me special
and i'll touch some hearts today

but if you keep working
you can maybe make it good
and if you just keep working
you can maybe get out soon

baby it's a fool's game
a fool's game to stand upon
you are just a loser
just like everyone else

i am just a flanged voice
i am just machine
i will let them do my talking
all of it for me

i don't really have to say a word here
i let machines do all my talking for me
for me
for me
Track Name: And I Will Use My Hands
oh you should've seen me man
lord i was desperate
i took it the first way i could
i walked right in and i took that shit
and i took it oh so good
i wouldn't take it if i could take it back
but that's where i am now

and i broke down
i left my ground
cuz the ground was broken too
i oughta take my compensation
and shove it inside you
cuz you were broken too

and i will use my hands
and i will burn my hands
and my feet will rot
and my heart shall rot
but my back will grow so strong

and oh you should've seen me
when i wasn't desperate
i had my feet on the ground
and i got good at cleanin' the plates
and spinnin' and wipin' 'em down
and though the ground was broken
and i was a broken man too
i would always hate you

and i will use my hands
and i will burn my hands
and my feet will rot
and my heart shall rot
but my back will grow so strong

and i will use my hands
and i will burn my hands
and my feet will rot
and my heart shall rot
but my
back will grow so strong
Track Name: Ave Maria (Save This Baby Boy)
ave maria
ave maria

the last time that they heard his voice
was when the church cried out
they said burn the heretic and so they drowned him out
no one knows what he sang like or
how that baby smelled
much like other babies but
this one was drowned

save the child
save the child
save that baby boy
save the child
save the child
save our pride and joy

damn this town
and damn this city
and damn this whole world

save the child
save the child
save that baby boy

some may sing of tragedy
and others sing a melody
someday won't you think of he
the little babe who died
i will save this child
i will praise the lord
i can't do much else
but pray for his old soul

won't you save this child?
won't you save this baby boy?
won't you save this child?
won't you save this baby boy?

save the child
save the child
save the baby boy
save the child
save the child
save our pride and joy

damn this town
and damn this city
who has that much love?
who could bring him back?
who could save his soul?

save the child
save the child
save the baby boy
