We are super behind on posting lyrics for our new album, so I am going to make up for it and post a new set now. This next song is called “Things Not Worth Fixing” and I think is a song a lot of people can relate to. Check it out here and pre-order our new LP from Count Your Lucky Stars Records orTopshelf Records.
"Things Not Worth Fixing"
After graduating from college,
I moved back home to my parents’ house in Fenton
(It would be the first of three more separate stints)
My brother helped get me a part-time job
peddling paint at Sherwin-Williams
The idea was to stay for a year and save up
and plan for our wedding
All of our friends had already moved away
or were still off at school
So it felt like a ghost town
I was not a model employee
I was frequently late and felt my education made me overqualified
and that the job was far beneath me
I reeked of youth! I thought the world was owed me!
Each morning, contractors would pour in like vultures on carrion
and pick the store clean
You Blew It! - Yesterday something awful happened. Our van... | Facebook
Yesterday something awful happened. Our van was robbed as it sat in a heavily trafficked parking lot in the middle of a hot, bright, San Antonio day. The…
We didn’t post about this earlier but now seems like an appropriate time. When we were in Chicago last Saturday, our van got broken into and Warren’s laptop and iPod got stolen. The thieves rooted through all of our stuff and threw it everywhere- luggage, our backpack with our guitar pedals we accidentally left in the car during the show, our bags of food, our GPS, etc. It was a mess, and we felt violated. But we got lucky because our guitars and other valuables were inside (it happened during our show in broad daylight), and they left mostly everything else. It was a big deal to us, but it wasn’t as bad as it could have been. They they took very little.
But our good friends in You Blew It! just had a break-in, and they weren’t so lucky. They lost everything- all their gear, guitars, and personal items. Having had a brush with it recently, let me tell you how much that can ruin a band. We all work so hard to be able to afford nice gear, and those little essential luxuries that help us out enourmously on the road, like laptops, iPods, etc. We were fine, we don’t need any help, but they do. Please, please, please find it in your heart to support them in their time of need. These are good people who deserve better than this.

He kills it, honestly. Steals the show completely! I still can’t believe that they both sang on our album. I don’t think I was ever not believe it. So cool, haha.
I just keep doing it, honestly. I was bad for a long, long time. I am only now not entirely awful.
