lyrics

it’s been a hard ride
my patience long
in the diner
that fucking song
I know that
you’ve had a hard life, Corin
you’ve got a lot of “sugar”
another 4-top is coming in
another bus tub is spilling over
and what they put you through
your nerves are shot
I smell the bacon and bleach water
eggs are broken and overcooked
I know that
you’ve got a hard life, Corin
you’ve had a lot of “sugar”
somebody’s mom is struggling
somebody’s mom is winking at me
and what they put you through
your nerves are shot
red eyes, steel knives, this coffee’s burnt
gratuitous smiley face drawn hastily on the check
“come and see us again” I would but I’m pressing
onward to 300 miles away
I want to but you’re not on the way to anything
but this crash

“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.”
