Here's a collection of golden oldies and oldy goldies.

After taking a step back, I sorta realized the production of "New Bugs" is that scene from "Batman" (1989). You know the one--Jack Nicholson is dancing around the art museum, bumping Prince, and painting over Renaissance pieces. Everything was gaudy Joker pop art. Well, it seems, I got a little manic with those ruby lips.

"Country Sun" and "Golden Days" are both ambiguous country nostalgia. The former, a nicely proportioned snapshot or an unrealistic goal--you can't live in a catalog, though you may want to. The latter is more like a bumpkin's fond incoherence.

These were written between 2013 and 2014. They haven't seen the light because I had other shit to do.

Track Name: New Bugs
Well I'm feeling like I ain't good at dealing
With my old ways, my old ways
When I'm sleeping, see a black screen and thinking
My dreams are blank, dreams are blank

My old ways, lovely sleep
I'm alright, little lights never de-stress me

When I see a pretty girl up and leaving
I oh là là, oh là là
Track Name: Country Sun
Way out in the country where
We lost our northern blues
We live in the movies and
The sun sets on cue
I'm in love, it's not enough
The filter on your frame
The dancing days in our own place
I know you feel the same

I'm near a life that jangles through the night
I swing the doors out, welcoming the country sun

The barren lands where we hold hands
The silence when we think
I'm not hung up but if I hang
You know my favorite drink
I'm in love with nothing but
The silence when we think
Living life on the range
It's always almost gone
Track Name: Golden Days
Nothing comforts me but something in my tea
And I can't really sleep
Every time I drink
I rock myself to sleep

Golden days

It always comforts me
Watching my TV
