about

HEY!

If you want to pay more than a dollar for this song, here are some suggestions!

$3 - Going Green!
The cost of the CD version without the packaging or plastic

$5 - The Fiver
Couldn't make it to a show? Throw us the cover charge you always wanted to!

$30 - Art Commissioner
The fantastic Dani Capalbo hooked up the awesome collage you see here for this low-low price because she is AMAZING. You can pay her for it vicariously by reimbursing that part of our production cost!

$30 - Studio Manager (PURCHASED)
This was the cost to rent the studio at Bethany Underground when we recorded 65 Corvette.

$40 - Executive Producer (PURCHASED)
The unparalleled Tommy Fucking Doomsday produced this track for us. This would cover the cost of his time and hard work.

$115 - The Whole Package!
This was how much the custom printed cardboard sleeves and blank CDs cost us for the physical copies we are hand-assembling @ Couch House. If you cover this, all of our sold CDs turn into profit at shows!


Thank you so much for all of your support. You are beautiful.

Track Name: 65 Corvette
Oh!

Driving through the canyon after dusk
With you by my side, the only one I trust
Blue hair blowin' in the hot sunset
With a six-gun by your side in a '65 corvette

A brown case full of not a damn thing but cash
Last thing we heard your father say was, "You'd better watch your ass!"
But the sherriff's posse ain't caught us yet
Out-of-state plates on a '65 corvette

Go!

The desert nights are dark and cold
But I got bourbon and my girl
There's not a place I wouldn't go
With you, across this goddamn world

And we set out for the river at the break of dawn
A rude awake from the sun unbearably strong
But your fingers caressing my aching head
Riding getaway shotgun in a '65 corvette

The desert days are terribly hot
When monsoon lightning rakes the sky
As if a warning from the gods,
"Get out now, or die!"

It's all for you
It's all I do
the car, the cash, the guns, the bourbon too
It's all for you
To see you through
The lightning, heat, and desert sky never needed a better reason why!

Oh, no...

Up ahead the road appears to split
One way dark tunnels, the other dangerous cliffs
Hear the sirens screaming in my head
Red lights flash in the bumper chrome of a '65 corvette

This is goodbye, but it's not death!
You held 'em off, and I-- I turned my back on the West
So roll me up one last cigarette
And see if these fuckers can keep up with me in my '65 corvette

And the forest nights are dark and cold
Spending every one alone
Desert sunlight haunts my dreams
Buried in cold December snow

City nights are terribly hot
Tossing, turning, drenched in sweat
Just one picture's all I got,
Of you and me and that '65 corvette
