Rainstick Cowbell Portland, Oregon

“Rainstick Cowbell makes searing music that’s intensely personal…[from] intense, clear-eyed rants to unhinged exorcisms. It’s exhilarating to hear music this raw.”

Track Name: meth dealers on the light rail corridor
they come from Guatemala
terrified in debt
in slavery this close to freedom
you must be pissed
I'm amazed you showed up
horrified you stay
preying on the weakness, hook the tweakers
a parasite

choose
I love you still
for you I make believe

father was a freedom fighter
now paralyzed and deaf
mother died and left the babies quetzal-less
your sacrifice I admire
but you weaken us
because your selfish, parasitic and you disgust me
you revolt

you ride the rails from Gresham
utilize Tri-Met
always lurking in the shadows
like a rat
I'm amazed you showed up
horrified you stay
preying on the weakness, hook the tweakers
a parasite

choose
I love you still
for you
I make believe
Track Name: I really fucking hate you right now
for god's sake shut up
your mouth it wont fail
running on and on it doesn't stop
some view, some point, regurgitated tale
never left this town of ya-hoo's

never been
never been to Pakistan
never spoke
never spoke Hungarian

what do you know?
what they told you to know
help me sing this verse
that fanny pack's a purse
that fanny pack's a purse

but I don't want to have to say
I'd rather leave here
head for the door
what for?
where are my people?
keep all the soldiers cracked out
chained down with their own kind
keep all the deformed rejects
collected with keepers

'cause here you are
laughing it up
you fat fuck

you touch me like that again and I swear...
put the soda down and step aside
fetal alcohol syndrome on your face
got the baggy pants and do-rag

never want
never want to hurt a man
play it cool
play it cool in brother land

people can be so beautiful
but when left to their own
they de-evolve
neanderthals
neanderthals

get up!
who then takes responsibility?
shut your mouth!
this burden it rests on me?
tell me -
what's the payout?
where's the trade?

people can be so beautiful
I want you to be beautiful
