I'm tired of your social lost causes I'm tired of your pregnant pauses I'm tired... oh I'm so fucking tired You say I'm outta touch Cuz I'm an only child and I think too much You say that it's a rush Engaging me in battle, gotta keep it hush hush You say... I think you've said enough I've got gin dreams and secondhand nic fits I've got magic beans and side stick cymbal hits I've got... I've got little Hello Kitty tits I said four words in a certain order So they confiscated my tape recorder I've been called a bitch, I've been called a slut But you can't call me cuz you don't have my number

When I grow up I wanna be a steam shovel (hatchet dutiful!) When I grow up I wanna be a steam shovel I wanna be big and shiny When I grow up I wanna be a peach farmer (ridin' in a dune buggy!) When I grow up I wanna be a peach farmer I wanna job that makes me money [incoherent screaming] When I grow up I wanna be a drug dealer (pharmasousaphone!) When I grow up I wanna be a drug dealer I wanna make the people like me When I grow up I wanna be a phantom (workin in a tollbooth!) When I grow up I wanna be a phantom I wanna make sure people miss me [incoherent screaming] When I grow up I wanna be a freight train (pushin' through the acid rain!) When I grow up I wanna be a freight train I wanna job that keeps me going When I grow up I wanna be a landmine (waitin' for my time to shine!) When I grow up I wanna be a landmine I wanna job that makes me happy [incoherent screaming]

You fly too close to the sun You wage a war can't be won Should I hate what I've become? The end's already begun You call me crazy cuz I follow the moon I'll take my chances Once revolution till my flower's in bloom So count your blessings Perihelion... You want a bag full of cash You want to rise from the ashes You think I have a dark side? You don't know the half

Love your neighbor like a Christian Love yourself like an atheist Love your brother like a brother Love your lover like little fish I heard you got a secret Bet you wonder how I knew Well it's a really funny story And only half of it is true

I was born in the year of the roto tom under a Casio moon Reagan sounded like a real dick...

It's high time you passed me by It's a lie when you act surprised You've got cats' eyes between your thights You're my guy; don't ask me why No temo las carreteras No temo palabras largas No temo tener menos ni mas Yo temo to do lo demás Cacti galacti...

I'm stirring my instant coffee with a chopstick I'm thinking about the apocalypse more than usual today You're carefree and smiling cuz you don't know better (you're breaking all the rules) My patience is fading but still I am waiting for you to define the duel I am an open book with nothing on the pages I'm those suspicious gaps in history through the ages You are that little voice, that angel on my shoulder Your halo's shorting out; your gaze is growing colder I am a lot of fun when on my best behavior I am attracted to danger... but he's stopped calling me back You are that little voice, that devil on my shoulder Your horns are blinking red; your eyes... your eyes so blue

Wake up American You'd better wake up quick Pledge your allegiance You better wake up quick You better wake up quick You better wake up quick Can't break my heart It's not there anymore I'll stay in the dark I don't care anymore Genocide Monday You are in the thick Freedom war machine You are in the thick You are in the thick You are in the thick Can't break my heart It's not there anymore I'll stay in the dark I don't care anymore Complicit, complacent, the body's in your basement Complicit, complacent, the body's in your basement THE ARMY'S AT THE DOOR! Wake up American You'd better wake up quick Pledge your allegiance You better wake up quick You better wake up quick You better wake up quick

about

Sapling Massachusetts

"Most bands that fall into the noise punk category are either pure noise and aggression or electronic near dance music. Sapling exist in both worlds, being both punk and groovy dance music. Plus, their songs feel both silly and completely serious at the same time, which is never a bad thing."
