about

At long last, the Red Bennies album that was never sold:

"Presented in it's entirety from the folders /last red bennies recording/9-29-09, /10-19-09, /11-09-09, and the folder RED BENNIES/overdubs. "Don't Stop", "In the Dark", and "To Get Your Attention" added at the last minute to not waste disk space; those recorded during rehearsal in years previous.Produced by David Payne, by the Groups grace, who made a concerted effort to convey the sound of what it's like to play with best friends at their most irritable and earnest, for years at a time, in the disguisting basement of the Westgate Business Center. For the most part, recorded and performed live as always. All additional instruments performed by the AF Jr. Caveman Players."

Track Name: Comfort at Home
Damn this traffic at the end of the room, 'smells like a garbage can in the non-smoking bar
The bitter cold lips, accidentally kissed- 'accidentally wrapped my legs around. It was nothing like this
Would you look at me with your mouth closed till we're alone?
Watching and learning while the dead float away. 'Don't remember why it's so good, do you? 'So selfish it shoots right through you.
And it hurts so bad but it won't bring the killer in. It's that exact second again. Don't you know just when it's time to go?
Would you lood at me with your mouth closed till we're alone?
Still it's so much better at your house. Comfort at home.
Let me move it with my breath- don't make a scene and make a soft sound- bounced back from people and places I know. Don't you know just when it's time to go?
Still it's so much better at your house. Pick me up I'm ready and willing.
Still it's so much better at your house. Pick me up- comfort at home.
Here it comes again. It's that exact second, I said. Don't you know just when it's time to go?
Still it's so much better at your house. Pick me up I'm ready and willing.
Still it's so much better at your house. Pick me up- comfort at home.
Comfort at home.
Track Name: Red Bennies
Before it gets too late, would you honor me with your presence again?
And what will you bring? What sweet thing? What hot thing to keep me up tonight?
8:00 would you woo me? Hold me close, my heart's beating. Please, please- you need it.
Step right back to the end of the line. 'Always been my pleasure, I don't mind.
I'll make a tight fist 'round what you touched and kissed on top of me, pissed, in the bed that night.
12:00 would you woo me? Hold me close, my heart's beating. Please, please- you need it.
Before it gets too late, would you honor me with your presence again?
I worked to make it right, while you were sleeping lightly; all of us in the bed that night.
3:00 would you woo me? hold me close, my heart's beating. Please, please- you need it.
Track Name: Hot Dudez
Did you find what you wanted? Did you mark it down? I know your hopes never vanish, but the real thing will never last.
Would you look at that sweet face? I'd give you anything that you want, and I have- no matter what the cost.
So sweet, so sad, and so alone- every hour and minute in between.
You are on quite the quest- 'gonna stroll down every street. 'Gonna be the first one to find it- 'the first one to walk on by it.
So remember;
When you need someone- when you need somebody- when you need a body, would you think of me? 'And how 'nothing was magic- you just laid back in it. And when the candies dropped, I picked it up and ate it. And when your heart fell to the floor I let it lie. And when the sad story played, you were the first and the last to cry.
Whether confident kill or a non-compete clause, you explain.
-So you can't explain, so you don't know just what you've done.
I know what you need- it's to bring it back on home. Can you tell me just where you live?
It makes so scared that I'll never know if you'll ever change. Will you ever change?
Track Name: Don't Stop
Don't stop rinning through the grass. Don't stop bleeding on the way. Don't stop rolling on your back. 'Watch the hours slip away.
Don't you know why I love you so? Don't you know what I needed you to do? You are the only one who can do it without feeling. Tie your own hands, you animal I'll hold you.
When the weekend comes around, feel it again as you get drunk. What was that sweet sound? What was that sweet luck?
You walked in, eyes shining, hands moving. Lay what you slayed in down- still dripping, heart's beating- 'beats too fast. Don't you stop.
Don't you stop holding to many hands. Don't you stop squeezing for a pulse. Don't you waste your tongue on your own lips. Don't you stop ripping another one down.
Don't you know I'm waiting on a wolf? Don't you know I'll gingerly kiss it on the nose?
Don't you stop.
Track Name: You Are the One
Make me show what I'm stealing in the night. Make me without a reason to make it right.
I was there- ooh what a handsome man! Hold and wait for you to run.
You were there, clear in the morning light, clean and warm as the sun. You are the one.
Break me, tame and whole hearted, and here to bite.
Make me, lathed and red hot on fire for you.
Would you swear never to turn your back on me till you're done?
Would you dare to light up the sky at night and hold it still in your palm only because?
Another stab and it flows to you. It's all I have- yeah, you know it's true. My heart belongs to you. What would you do with it?
Track Name: Glass Hands
My things broke, so I sold all me things.
'Still working up to be alone in the room.
Still so much more to snuff, I yearn to be the only one with wings in the house I'm selling soon.
Another time another place, you wouldn't take them off this face, and glass hands would set the pace.
I got hard hands for your soft waist. I got scarred plans for you in the hot waste.
Fires burn and sing off of saturn's rings- I'm so tall and handsome, with a copper taste.
Legs move thick under my skin- 'bones brittle and a little thin.
Step one, step two, with a purpose. Step on the flowers in the garden. Those are the flowers I cried on.
Another time, another place, you wouldn't take them off this face. And glass hands would set the pace.
In the warm night's embrace- tender kisses on your face, and glass hands would set the pace.
Track Name: In the Dark
Another day, another dollar. I wanna scream, oh man, I wanna holler.
You made it, you called it. I've got an empty hole in my wallet.
Don't take it down- the picture of me when I still knew you. What do you want my self respect for- 'don't have to take it, I'll give it to you.
In the dark, everyone is sleeping. Their dirty dreams are on the ground, creeping.
Keep driving through the ice- tell yourself that everything's nice.
You lie through your teeth while you're sucking in- I've seen it before and I'll say it again- it's a motherf$%king cold world and you're never gonna warm it up.
You won't make it one day without her.
alright, that's the way it goes- in her arms, start crying like a baby every time you come home.
And she'll shush you to be quiet, and that's the only way you'll ever make it out again.
Right! And you stab your way out, and there's nothing left to cut.
All alone you wrap up in a blanket and you grit your teeth. You know you're never gonna make it- you know what I mean?
I'm gonna hold on tight- yeah I'm gonna cling- and there isn't anything that you won't help me to bring home.
Another day- it was fated- the best days are the ones I hated, and the list goes on and on and on- all the people who thought they'd never make it.
Track Name: Do It
Late last night I heard the news- wait a minute before you choose.
In the corner ceiling, now in plain sight, the cobwebs are screaming:
Just show me your face another time. Give your embrace another time.
Lean on the chair- there's nobody there, naked and spilling out on the floor alone.
'Didn't think I'd do it- well shame on you. There's more to it than you ever knew.
I 'aint too proud to roll around in it. I read my note again, it said:
Just hold my hand another time. Squeeze me another time.sit in the chair- there's nobody there, at night scared to death in the house alone.
We'll never break up. We'll never make up.
We'll never roll in the dark with my wet face on your wet arm.
And should you ever know, and should you ever see, I don't know what time it is and I forgot the day.
Do it.
Track Name: To Get Your Attention
I tried so hard to get your attention, and things not mentioned I just showed.
Like the two eyes and the two scrapes burning red across my face.
I can see it in the way the Missing Link is gone from your face.
Like the bright stars in the black sky still cry for more, can you guess why?
So many things they regret, but not like the one thing they made on a bet.
So take it down the alley, take it out of the house.
You dirty thing- you rough thing. What 'you gonna do now?
I can see it in the day and in the night time too.
Track Name: The Sun's Coming Up
Let me help you out, the door's just hanging- swinging to and fro.
The sun's coming up- just about time to go.
I wan't you- 'aint that what I just said?
I can't remember- the sun bleached last night.
You aught to know, when your phone keeps ringing, who loves you the most babe. The sun's coming up.
Give me flashlights- I want to see what you've been doing all of those dark nights. Let me show you one inch in.
Spent last night climbing from the street up into the car.
All of those times wrapped up in one time.
I can hear you calling me from afar.
I'll make you clean it all up- the pictures used to fit in the drawer.
You aught to know, when your heart keeps screaming, who loves you the most babe. The sun's coming up.
Track Name: Cool Down
I want you to know before it comes true, about how it goes- with a rough edge.
A dream held up, at the sink bent over. Wrapped around your finger, and the window's open on the leaves ond the light shining through.
What's turned 'round is hard to see but when I've cooled down it's come to me.
Who would have known I'd do it all for you?
You just looked so good when you asked me to.
You don't see it coming- 'blacked out the sky- look to the left, to the right, 'back in your eye.
Shown in the light, you can see it's all true.
What's turned 'round is hard to see but when I've cooled down it's come to me.
I'm so guilty, you should kill me. I've got a cramp- I'm gonna hold on to everything.
I'm so lucky, you should touch me. I've got a cramp- I'm gonna hold on to everything.
