about

The guitar loop was originally recorded in 2008, and a lot of the song is samples from the band's archive. It was great to finally be able to make a song of it!

lyrics

I summon violet skies with my evil eyes
Keeping them steady on the prize

Unrevised sympathy bastardized
By those rewarding lies
You are the one I sought to hypnotize

I couldn't help it if I tried

I harbor the little hate
The one you've taken as your date

Unresponsive and sans spine
I'll try hard to make you mine

I couldn't help it if I tried


Unreleased and unexplained
Tell me I'm the greatest pain
Unrevised and bastardized
By my own rewarding lies
Unrestricted and sans spine
I won't win can't make you mine
I couldn't help it if I tried
I couldn't help it if I tried
I couldn't help it if I tried

about

Babay Jicks and The Ghoul Fiends Austin, Texas

An ill-conceived avant-garde garage band whose members went without oxygen for twenty minutes and forgot how to play their instruments, leaving the typically demure lead singer to cry and moan while an imaginary audience jeers in derision.
