Taken from a session recorded by Geoff Streadwick at 40 oz Sound, Winter 1995 that resulted in five songs. These songs were planned for release on a second 7" but mostly went unreleased.


You think you're going to get somewhere tonight
With those clothes you picked out especially
Despite a bottle-rocket valentine
And the ghosts inside the festivities
This town is absolutely covered
Shot down in the middle of a very thick summer
I'm not going to go back there
To my old high school where I learned how to waste time
And if the word doesn't get around
And you count me out
That'll be just fine
You think you're going to get to Jupiter
And I'm crying in my dreams
Trying to be the boy who saves the world
Without a toothbrush or technology
This town is no place to grow up in
You can drive around
You can do nothing
I'm not going to prom this year
Because there's fireworks here
And that's way more important
I'm not going back there
Thank you, thank you.
