HUNTING DOWN METEORITES  EP [2021]

The second extended play of the summer of 2021 gives you an exciting amalgam of catchy indie rock (‘good riddance to the cosine’, ‘tail wind out, head wind home’), blues bursting into stadium rock (‘saving the arrow child’), a sad sentridoh-like homerecording (‘back to breaking young coed’s hearts’), a lo-fi hip-hop song about college rock (‘when college rock hit the radio waves’) and a sad songs:ohia like homerecording (‘yellow half-moon of august’).   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LYRICS

GOOD RIDDANCE TO THE COSINE

good riddance to the cosine

skippin’ math, just enjoy your time

Captain Cook charting coastlines

you’re history when the bell will chime

 

Charlie Watts in the back

he hits on a Brooklyn girl

Charlie, I’ll pass your notes

I promise you

 

good riddance to the cosine

erase the chalk and save your life

and he’s as dry as the leeward side

my geo grades are gonna nosedive

 

Charlie’s always in the back

he hits on a stupid girl

Charlie, I passed your notes

I promise you

 

just got home, boy, what a drag

I’ll meet you at the corner, let’s smoke a fag

ten years later you’ve found your chosen path

counting cards, yeah, you can do the math

 

good riddance to the cosine

just step outside and enjoy your life

 

SAVING THE ARROW CHILD

tried to reach you

prowlin’ the streets

you’ve always been around

and up and out of town

throwin’ rocks thru windows

straight through her house

 

know you’ve been

in a cold sweat, thinking your bird’s on the ground

just flapping her wings

you’ve always been around

and up and out of town

throwin’ rocks thru windows

wakin’ her up

 

I could save you

saving the arrow child

 

TAIL WIND OUT, HEAD WIND HOME

when she smiles

it’s so unfathomable

 

tail wind out, head wind home

 

the look in her eyes

it’s so impenetrable

 

tail wind out, head wind home

 

BACK TO BREAKING YOUNG COED’S HEARTS

when fate decides

to turn the page

he won’t be coming home today

 

and when he tries

to cause you pain

girl you gotta stay away

 

it’s time to make a brand new start

he’s back to breaking young coed’s hearts

 

when the lights go out

and you scream his name

set the voodoo doll aflame

 

and when you find

those picture frames

bad exposure saves the day

 

it’s time to make a brand new start

he’s back to breaking young coed’s hearts

 

true colors, fade away like a rainbow

when Judy hollered, she was swept away by a tornado

 

it’s time to make a brand new start

he’s back to breaking young coed’s hearts

 

WHEN COLLEGE ROCK HIT THE RADIO WAVES

the sun is in your face

another cold winter day

there are records in the room

the sleeves look pretty cool

late Mary Ann so pale

the smoke won’t be exhaled

what got into her head?

she fell asleep with a lit cigarette

when college rock hit the radio waves

 

it was a slap in my face

when you put it on, post-punk new wave

spaced out in your room

with silent Looney Tunes

we held each other’s hands

when we thought of late Mary Ann

what got into her head?

she fell asleep with a lit cigarette

when college rock hit the radio waves

 

Reverend Daniel told us Mary Ann would be OK

he praised the Lord, we praised KCMU

 

YELLOW HALF MOON OF AUGUST

at least I now know what it looks like

to be up there in the clouds

I hope I will ever know what it is like

to be at ease, with you lying safely in my arms

always expect him, yes always expect him to show up at your door

and will I lock myself in and hide under the couch?

 

you and I were friends

replaced this solitude

did you catch the plane

or will I see you soon?

 

she disappeared of the face of the Earth

and I’ve been looking for some kind of resolution ever since

you’re a dreamer but you are right

I’ve seen the yellow moon tonight
