You've got shampoo in your hair And you show up to work with a smirk You don't care that you're besmirching your cause Worse than that yesterday's shirt I don't fault your actions It's your attitude I have issues with You're blazing a pattern It's not an isolated incident Maybe you'll find someone to be the butt of your jokes But you can't expect it from everyone You've got toothpaste on your shirt a sure sign you brushed behind the wheel when you made your escape, how much shame did you feel Last night's stand wasn't your first We used to have booze at all the office parties then you would always pretend to get drunk and lose your inhibitions I think you take pleasure in taking advantage in gaining an advantage in making advances

I saw you on that TV show And you looked into my eyes I saw you wore that red jacket The one you know I like And on the wall by the bus stop I found a message with my name Well I, I know you're out there And I'll wait And on your latest album All the words on track six Converted into numbers Form the number of the house where I live In the basement of the thrift shop I found a letter with my name Well I, I know you're out there And I'll wait And I, I was the only one Chosen to save you Did you see it written in the clouds? I need you too I saw you in that magazine Morse code kerning spelled out my name I understood what you meant there We are the same, we are the same And in the leaves in the gutter I found a golden dove with my name Well I, I know you're coming And I'll wait And I, I was the only one Chosen to save you Did you see it written in the clouds? I need you too I'll wait

Sun came up it was another day And the sun went down you were blown away Why'd you let go of your guitar Why'd you ever let it go that far Drunken Angel Could've held on to that long smooth neck Let your hand remember every fret Fingers touching each shiny string But you let go of everything Drunken Angel Drunken Angel You're on the other side Drunken Angel You're on the other side Followers would cling to you Hang around just to meet you Some threw roses at your feet And watch you pass out on the street Drunken Angel Feed you and pay off all your debts Kiss your brow, taste your sweat Write about your soul, your guts Criticize you and wish you luck Drunken Angel Drunken Angel You're on the other side Drunken Angel You're on the other side Sun came up it was another day And the sun went down you were blown away Why'd you let go of your guitar Why'd you ever let it go that far Drunken Angel Drunken Angel

All the little black circles Of mold on the bathroom door And all the straight black lines Of grime in the grout on the floor I don't mind anymore I don't care if my house is clean Pizza boxes by the front door It is what it is, so it seems Yeah Wish I were stranded on a desert island Eating coconuts by the score Or in a yurt on the wild tundra Like Bon Iver, only even more so Even more so Even more so It's better to be alone Yeah So that's what you get When you're a martyr to the Craigslist cause Take it easy, baby You're taking this all too serious Saints wouldn't care About the slime in the crisper drawer Joan of Arc was an athlete With feet that burned like fire Yeah Wish I were stranded on a desert island Eating coconuts by the score Or in a yurt on the wild tundra Like Bon Iver, only even more so Even more so Even more so It's better to be alone Yeah All the little black circles Of mold on the bathroom door And all the straight black lines Of grime in the grout on the floor

Summer night, sticky hot and molten Setting sun filling me with golden light Sets the trees on fire Shield your eyes The world's on fire Palm trees, the California coastline Freeways stretching on for miles and miles Headlights like fireflies Shield your eyes The world's on fire We pretended that we were movie stars With my headscarf and a pair of shades Took off my heels to run by the water's edge The cold Pacific washing all my doubts away Away Away Here we go, the story of nothing You decided I wasn't worth loving anymore But once, I was adored Venice Beach, the scene of a murder If not that, the scene of some other crime Like wasting my time Shield your eyes The world's on fire And if we'd been lovers on the movie screen I would have found the magic words to make you stay Held you while the rubble rained around our heads And kissed you while the world burned away Away Away In my bed, I lie still and think about Where you are, and if I just concentrate I can feel you in space Palm trees filter the moonlight I know that there's someone in your arms tonight The world's on fire The world's on fire The world's on fire

a call to my cellphone you need my help again there's shouting in the background whatever the situation is we'll sort it out Your other friends may roll their eyes But I'll pull the van around I'll pull the van around 3 AM and we're strapping a mattress down I had pointless hopes when we were in high school you left your parents house when I helped you move out i thought now here's my chance i fooled my self it's not your fault i deserved less than all that I got a gracious, patient friend six months later you were on the move again Your other friends may roll their eyes But I'll pull the van around I'll pull the van around 3 AM and we're strapping a mattress down what's wrong with your roommates you didn't answer the question i had the wrong premise to start with i went away and learned the cliche you were college break and six months almost to the day your landlord kicks you out she's a bit of a psycho you say i'll take your word for it Your other friends may roll their eyes But I'll pull the van around I'll pull the van around 3 AM and we're strapping a mattress down

LET'S GET DRUNK!

about

Gentle Brontosaurus went on tour to SXSW in March 2016 and managed to survive driving 2452 miles and playing 5 shows in 6 days without us murdering each other. We thought we'd commemorate this achievement by putting up some live tracks from our shows as a free download so you can check out newer stuff that's not on the album.

Check out the liner notes for each song, where we narrate the story of our road trip in such loving detail, it will be almost like being there in person and having someone narrate a long and boring story to you in great detail.

All tracks were recorded live with only the finest of high-fidelity modern recording technologies, i.e. an iPhone propped up on a keyboard, typically pointed directly at the drums. Sorry if they sound like shit.
