about

We recorded tracks for a demo in 1997 but didn't pay to have them mixed. We found out pretty soon after that none of us knew how to mix the tracks we got and we didn't have the equipment for that anyway, so the tapes were put up and then completely forgotten for nearly two decades. In 2015 they were accidentally uncovered, finally mixed, and now here they are.

Track Name: Party
So I was at this party, it was going really lame
A bunch of dudes just eating pizza, wondering why we came
When suddenly I get a great idea from being bored
Ducked in a room that had a phone and quickly shut the door
I called my friend and said "Emergency,
Call every girl we know, get some whiskey,
Get James to bring his DJ shit, and take down this address
Then you get down here too and bring the rest"
About an hour later, there's a knock at the front door
Over the next ten minutes, bout another hundred more
The house was packed with people who had brought all of their friends
So when it really started's bout the time it reached the end
There's more booze here than anyone'd believe
But it's hard to drink when you can't even breathe
And more people kept coming til no one could move at all
Some party now, pinned up against the wall
I find it difficult to think about it
I only meant for ten or twenty more (twenty more)
Will anyone believe me now? I doubt it
I really ought to go but not before I get liquor
Some guy just kicked the door in cuz somebody hit his car
Now everybody's fighting like we're in some shitty bar
I find my friend and James, we grab some booze from the display
There goes another window, whose house was this anyway?
Somehow we made it to the car outside
Three girls jumped in the back and said "let's ride"
The cops showed up as we pulled off, and we all waved goodbye
To the party that turned riot when it died
I wonder if they'll ever figure why
Track Name: Moon
Met a girl who really turned me on
Started thinking she could be the one
Took her out and got to know her soon
Walked together underneath the moon
Sweet romantic night
Moon is shining bright
Silence fills the cold dark air
No one else is there
The moon exploded after we embraced
Our date was finished, like the human race
The lack of gravitational forces
Threw Earth into the Sun, who expects this?
Cataclysmic night
Moon is burning bright
All life exterminated
Everyone is dead
Everyone is dead
Track Name: Flatliner
You don't care, I don't care, no one gives a damn
Waste of time to be yourself, well who cares who I am?
Look up to me, laugh at me, man up or pass the buck
Abuse and use me, kiss my ass, regardless we all suck
Stop looking for a reason, everyone ends the same
All that you'll leave behind you's a worthless fucking name
Plastic-faced sets the pace but that's never for me
Try your best to impress them and they don't want to see
Everybody that you know's another selfish worm
You may see humanity, all I see's wasted sperm
Stop looking for a reason, everyone ends the same
All that you'll have to show for's a worthless fucking shame
Track Name: SPF
Why don't you cut me some slack, what did I do to you
Why don't you get off my back, go find somebody new
I see just where I went wrong, is this the best I could do?
You've fucked me over so long, enough that I'm over you
I just want to go get loaded and say fuck it all
I've taken taken taken everything you give and I'm bound to fall
Another pile of bullshit's coming my way every time you call
There's got to be a better way to live than by the balls, the balls
I wanna know
Why do you so
Completely suck
Just get the fuck
Commitment with someone like you is best reserved for the blind
Unless you find somebody who is out of their fucking mind
It's times like this I can see that solitude ain't so bad
I always had the idea that breaking up would be sad
I just want to go get loaded and say fuck it all
I've taken taken taken everything you give and I'm bound to fall
Another pile of bullshit's coming my way every time you call
There's got to be a better way to live than by the balls, the balls
I wanna know
Why do you so
Completely suck
Just get the fuck
I wanna know
Why do you so
Completely suck
Just get the fuck
Track Name: Peru
Wiracocha is his name, he likes to have some fun
He spreads his stuff around, gets it on everyone
And when he's around it just makes him feel so really good
He lets him do the things that the others only wish they could
Oh yeah, Atahualpa's dead
Eldorado tries to find him but he finds instead
He makes sure to praise that Wiracocha everyday
He worships him in his unique appropriate way
It seems his tank is always full, oh yeah, it never dries
Yeah he does his ritual but never before mortal eyes
And when the sun goes down, that's when the fun begins
It's fun to do the ceremony even if it's sins
Wiracocha's meditating once again it's true
He's really flashy and besides he is an Inca too
The others think he's really strange as he sits here at home
He'll probe his mind until he's found ways not to be alone
Oh yeah, here's where the fun begins
Eldorado tries to find it but it's deep within
