about

For The "Finishing My Short Film To Appease My Kickstarter Backers" E.P.

These songs were written and recorded by Daniel Timothy Desrosiers at Scratch Deli in Seattle, Washington from December 26th, 2014 - January 1st, 2015.

Daniel Timothy Desrosiers played all the instruments with the exception of that righteous guitar solo on Bucket(s) Of Guild. Jesse Mercury played the shit out of that guitar solo. He really gave us a tour of the fret board on that one. He also donated his buttery voice and mastering skills!

Matt Dalton was kind enough to smoke weed, drink coffee, hang out, and record some harmonies and backing vocals on Potential New Morning Routine.

Sarah Pasillas swung by and lent her tambourine when it was needed the most. Then hung around for a little bit while Daniel Timothy Desrosiers wrote some lyrics then sang the harmony in one take on A Love Song: To Me, For Me, Buy Me.

A big, giant thank you goes out to Ian Thackaberry, owner of Scratch Deli: You encourage, you inspire, you welcome, and you make the best sandwiches in town!

And lastly, the biggest thank you of all goes to my princess, baby angel, Coal. She is my muse and will forever by my album art model.

For Team Elastic Waistband or: Female to Female

-- Listening instructions --

Gather the following items:

1. Jazz Cigarette rolled with the flower of the sativa (preferably Sour Diesel) and Randy's brand rolling papers
2. Lighter
3. A single tea candle
4. Headphones
5. A bowl of fruit (a dealer's choice of whatever is local/in season)
6. This E.P. (cassette is ideal, but digital is acceptable)

In a darkened room, use the LIGHTER to light the TEA CANDLE. Once your eyes have adjusted use the TEA CANDLE to fire up that JAZZ CIGARETTE. Toke until you've achieved the desired effect. Cue up the E.P. and with the HEADPHONES to make sure the volume is as loud as you can comfortably withstand. Once you've made whatever volume adjustments are needed eat approximately half of the BOWL OF FRUIT. Make sure to take the time to savor and really appreciate and understand the effort it took for that FRUIT to get to you. With each bite, APPRECIATE and UNDERSTAND the series of events that had to take place in order for you to be consuming that FRUIT. Then, start the E.P. and stare into the flame of the TEA CANDLE and DO NOT BREAK EYE CONTACT FOR THE ENTIRETY OF THE E.P.! When the E.P. is finished, remove the HEADPHONES and blow out the TEA CANDLE. In the dark and silent room eat the rest of the FRUIT. Once you've finished consuming the FRUIT utter the following phrases out loud: I am the flower, I am the fire, I am the fruit. Repeat as necessary.

Track Name: Potential New Morning Routine (Featuring: Matt Dalton)
I'll tell you all of my secrets after this vile of truth,
Cause I respect you and lying would be uncouth.
I can't see, I can't see how you'd never ask why,
I don't get it, I don't get you don't look at the sky.
Behind walls, behind walls there are things that we hide,
Behind walls, behind walls there are things that we hide, ya did you hear it that time?

You don't notice or worse you don't care!

The night is young and kids aren't dancing,
I'm too old to start a fucking punk band,
Yeah, I know I am just part of the problem,
Yeah, Yeah, it's just a fucking symptom.

No joke.
Track Name: Bucket(s) Of Guilt (Featuring: Jesse Mercury)
Got these words in my pocket,
Can't determine the order in which way they will go.
My mind's been blank lately,
Like a sponge that's been wrung out too many times.

Standing on the corner,
Screaming at my neighbor who's got nothing to say.
On the phone with Mother.
Taking bruises and beatings and buckets of guilt.
Track Name: Joan, Where Have You Gone??? (Featuring: Jesse Mercury)
I never knew the woman behind Grandma,
That's on me, I didn't take the time.
It must have been so hard living on,
Without your beloved John.
You spend your whole life watching bad TV,
And treated life like a daytime soap.
Was there a point in being so damn mean,
Did it fill, did it fill a hole?

Do you recall?
Do you remember me?

(Broke my trust)
(Let me down)
(Broke my heart)
(Built the walls)
(Locked the gate)

There goes your memory,
You're a candle out of wax,
And only the smoke will linger.

You said I couldn't sing,
That always bothered me,
Just another stone in my shoe.

Humiliated me,
In front of Mom and Lee,
Our late night talks were private.

I know I won't be there,
When you're anger finally leaves,
It's just another stone in my shoe.

I'll lose my mind as well and die someday like you forget my life my love by my side will kiss and hold my hand but she'll die too along with fifty two canton.

In the absence of memory is where we'll meet again!
Track Name: A Love Song: To Me, For Me, Buy Me!!! (Featuring: Sarah Pasillas)
You won't eat tonight and you owe rent from last July and you don't own a phone but pay the bill but when you're feeling low and want too... Remember that I love you and I will be here when your day goes bad.
Track Name: A Debt That Can Only Be Paid With Regret
When I was a kid you stood over me, while I was asleep.
Your hands on my skin/your curse upon me, while I was asleep.
The red in Mom's eyes/the tears on her cheeks, the secrets I keep.
When I was a kid you took it from me, and I'm still asleep.

I bear the weight of the family shame.
It's funny how I'm the one you blame.
I bear the weight of the family shame.

The void in your eyes/the welts on my cheeks, the secrets I keep.

When I was a kid you snuffed what was lit, while I was asleep.
I eat like a pig just to swallow your shit, and I'm still asleep.

I bear the weight of the family shame.
After twenty years it still hurts the same.
I am the face of the family shame.
It's funny how I'm the one you blame.

While you were touching me I was having a dream of a family love that was pure and deep.
Track Name: Amazon Suicide Net
Oh, where to go tonight: Rhein Haus or somewhere "divey"?
Should we leave The Hill? Oh god, no way!
The Unicorn is alright, but lately it's been weekend douchey.
We could use our phones to get Postmates.
The Hill has changed so much by way of San Francisco.
But, should we leave The Hill? No way!!!

Cause it's hard to beat this convenience disease,
And now I'm all green of cats who live more lean than me,
I'm atrophied and fattened from my means,
It's the purrfect scene of urban complacency.

I am culpable, but so damn comfortable.

Select the event cause I'm so "interested".
At your next, upcoming show... I'm there!
...Unless it's too late, too much, or up in Fremont.
It's our charge to support the scene.
Been slamming beers all day and now I'm all day drunk sleepy.
I thought I'd leave The Hill, oh god, no way!

It's killing me, this tongue and cheek disease.
And now it's obscene to say words genuinely.
Truth is atrophied and weakened by bare sleeves.
It's the purrfect scene of modern complacency.

I am culpable, but so damn comfortable.

6pm on Wednesday.
Just got back from Trader Joe's.
Cheaper than the Co-op.
Something everybody knows.
She's got something cooking.
I'm fixing drinks and packing bowls
Though about going out.
Be we don't wanna change our sweats!

Gurrl, you know it's good to see you in those sweatpants!
Choppin' up the veggies and the tofu.
Bootin' up the Hulu and the Netflix.
You know we're gonna cuddle till we pass out!

After having din din.
She asks if I want something sweet.
She runs into the kitchen.
I put the dishes in the sink.
She's got something baking.
I fixing drinks and packing weed.
Better than going out.
Cause she just made my favorite cookie recipe.

Gurrl, you know it's good to see you in those sweatpants!
Choppin' up the veggies and the tofu
Bootin' up the Hulu and the Netflix.
You know we're gonna cuddle till we pass out!
