Introducing the First Composition/Archetype of Four on the EP. This "feel" is the 12 Year Old Boy Responder, The Nasal Rocker, The First Reactive Layer and the inspiration to the EP title "When Smart Girls Do Stupid Things"
Chit'lins are, by the way, the fried intestines of pigs which are eaten world-wide in many cultures. Where I once came from, the deep south---with a southern slurred lazy-ass thick brain one might lean against their front porch and shrug, muttering "I'm eatin chit'lins". This phrase, to me, sort of categorically summed the feel of this gnarly song.


You Get Dressed Up
To Make A Buck
I'm Getting
Sloppier Than Ever Before
A Wasted Brain
Made A Habit Of Feelingless-ness
Traded All The Big Word That I Knew
For Your Kisses.

Your Vacuous
Unsentimental Statements
And Zombie Face
Interrupt My Concentration
Months Possessed
And Sleep Disabled
Haunted How I Trained You
To Respond As Unfaithful.

Now I Know I'll Get Away From You
In A Thousand Lifetimes We'll Be Having Some Fun
When The Feelings Are Gone
And The Past Is Done
And It Turns Golden
Now I Know I'll Get A Break From You
In A Thousand Lifetimes We'll Be Hanging Out Tuff
When The Feelings Are Gone
We'll Be Having Some Fun
When I Know It's Over.

You Take A Game
Like Milton Bradley
Had Me
Tweezin' And Grabbin'
The Plastic Burnt Toast
From My Heart Box
The Battery Charged Buzzer Sounds
And Look We Both Lost.

What's The Sum
Added Zero To One
How To Take Away Zero?
It's Hard Math For Our
Her Cape Gets Bunched
Up Her Ass
Like A G-String
It's Part Art-Of-Zen
Now She Gets Rid Of Nothing.

This Is How Your Higher Conscience Makes Sure That
You Never Get A Chance With Him Again
Cuz When You Accidentally F*** A Zombie
It's Like Huffing Gas
