    VINYL LOVERS:
    "I spared no expense with the vinyl production. It ended up being more expensive, but I wanted to meet everyone in the chain of vinyl production and learn about vinyl production and artistry. After months of careful recording, editing, mixing, the mastering was done by Adrian Morgan at Timeless Mastering in Brooklyn, NY. Following that, the 'Lacquer Master' was cut by none other than Ray Janos at Sterling Sound in Manhattan. Janos cut many of our favorite records, including works by Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, The Ramones, The Clash, The Strokes, Yo La Tengo, and the Rolling Stones. Side A and B lacquer masters were sent to RAINBO RECORDS in CA (RIP after 80 years in 2019). Maarten Kleyne gate-fold art.

lyrics

Chills

D Db E F (snare roll)
F# A (B-E)
F# A D B
I can see by the size of the fire,
You’re not invested at all
You’re all about the green.

If I gave right into to you,
and prayed to God,
Fall down on my knees.

E B D A
E B D E
[screams]

F# A D B
You can drink my blood,
You could throw me right under the bus,
It’s not a big leap.
F# A D B
You can fill my head with smoke,
Steal some time to discuss,
Wipe me clean.

D Db B A (G# - Gm -F#) (snare roll)
[scream]
F# D (bass and drums) (rockout middle)
You could shroud my eyelids in vestments.
Rob my innocence by suggestion.
Avoid your prison time and urge the mob to deceive!

(Lead Guitar rockout line)
F# A (pounding bass scream guitar)
It burns my skin to touch,
sends chills down my spine.
What’cha given me to read.

Slows my guts to a crawl.
Mixing blood and wine.
Flesh and wheat.
F# A (drums back in)
I can see by the size of the fire,
You’re not invested at all
You’re all about the green.

If I gave right into to you,
and prayed to God,
Fall down to my knees.

F# D - B
F# D - B
D Db E F (snare roll)
[scream]
