about

This track features backing vocals by Josh and Nick from Cables & Arms. I got to use a leslie for the first time on this recording which has been a life long dream. This is the last track recorded with Paul Furusho and Chris Heifner. It is the end of an era and the beginning of a new one.

lyrics

Long ago I lived in a house where that 60’s dream died
& we moved out
One side was glass but it turned to ash with the black light posters and lava lamps
I’ll be what you want me to be
And I recall that picture on the wall of the melting man running through his hands
The collagen has left my skin and now I’m turning into him
I’ll be what you want me to be I’ll see what you want me to see
The crazy lady in the hello kitty hat laughed
She sang with the human bag of cans and danced
And like most things it wouldn’t last
Long ago I lived in a house where that 60’s dream died & we moved out
One side was glass but it turned to ash with the black light posters and lava lamps
I’ll be what you want me to be I’ll see what you want me to see
The freaks of speed were making things
They had long since gone to seed
Their carts were full of things that they would never need
