    *Hold it in your hands! Hand it to your friends! Look at the pretty pictures! Read the itty, bitty lyric sheet! Ooooh and ahhhhh at the beauty!

    *This CD was professionally replicated. Kara and Rich glued the artwork to the digipak for a wonderfully colorful d.i.y. package. They used rubber cement so they could rub any excess glue into little booger balls. They personally folded the little liner notes into a tri-fold and stuck them into the digipak pocket. The liner notes have a gorgeous pic of the ravishing duo and song lyrics on the other side. The original artwork is by the crazy-talented Jesse Smith.

    *Due to the d.i.y. packaging of this CD, there will be some variation based on our gluing and folding skills.

    *We ship through USPS and send it First-Class or First-Class International.

    *Also includes immediate download of 15-track album in your choice of 320k mp3, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire.

    *We are 100% indie. Thinkroot Records is our label. Any $ you spend here goes directly to the band... and we'll use it to do more music projects.

That foreboding feeling I know so well
Flooding my body, taking over myself
My mind pleads with this feeling
For no casualty
By body just knows when there’s been
A tragedy
I got no dream to warn me this time
Must of blocked out my subconscious
Must of blocked out my mind
It’s just too terrifying when
You’re mama dies…

I cried to the crisp New Year’s Eve night
I shook in my girlfriend’s arms
Had her hold me tight
I had to call my siblings
Cuz my papa couldn’t talk
He just kept repeating, repeating
She’s gone…

Some pains don’t leave even when time passes
Some pains don’t leave even when you think they should have
It’s been over a year still doesn’t seem real
I guess when some people die
It never really does seem real
Cuz she’s gone…

So I’ve cried for my mom
I’ve cried for my loss
Feels like we’ve been cheated
Cut off from our bond
I’ve cried for my papa
He lost his life’s partner
I’ve cried for my sister
I’ve cried for my brother
I’ve cried for my girlfriend
How she’ll never fully know her
I’ve cried nephew
And I’ve cried for my uncle
I’ve cried for her friends
Cuz she was so much damn fun
Now I’ve replaced these tears
With straight shots of rum
I’ll have a shot for each of us
And I’ll stop when I’m done
When I’m done
When I’m done
Cuz she’s gone…
