“Trying Hard and Failing” New Single Out Now!

This song has been floating around my house for a long time. It’s been re-written 3 or 4 times, once as a weird metal version, but I love this scrappy little number. I always planned on cleaning it up, fixing the mistakes that I made during recording. Listening to it the past few weeks, I decided against it because its flaws sound perfect here, like they belong. I love my ugly little baby.

P.S. The art for this single is a photo of me eating a tub of potato salad in my aunt’s bathtub very much against her wishes. It seems like the perfect visual representation of the song.

Lyrics:
An evil feeling so obscure
That leaves me lost in temperature
My eyes have cried out enough for you
They did just what you told them to

I’m trying hard and failing

I adapted all your works for screen
I still can’t tell you just what they mean
I wrote a letter for you but I just can’t wait
The sea it roars and the ground it shakes

I’m trying hard and failing

You blocking out the strangest bits
Like chorus girls that all did the splits
Love’s a cockroach in your house
You step and squish and hail the mouse

I’m trying hard and failing
