about

A double single of our first non-live recordings!!1!11!!!!11!1!!! These songs were written and assembled in the early months of 2014. We began recording them in the botched EP sessions of late April/early May, and finished them up in December. They're representative of a slightly earlier form of josie, with Sam Lasky on percussion. Many thanks to Dad Culture Records!!!!

Track Name: Fun Drinking & Driving Games
Do you remember when it rained all night?
We sat by the woodstove and traded our lives.
Now me I have secrets and yours you won't share,
our teeth in the ice and our feet in the air.

The mother you lost lies in textbooks somewhere,
but you have her eyes and your grandfather's hair.
And the lights in the hallway would burst when you'd say,
"I fucked up, I'm sorry. Tonight, please just stay."

And I told my brother I wanted to die.
Now sometimes it's hard to look him in the eye.
Cause if I were just half of what I'd hoped to be
I'd never have let myself turn into me.
Track Name: Amputeenager
Catch the spark, inhale the ghost.
We sit around, it blows out smoke.
Our fingers fumble in the dark.
You lay me down, I leave my mark.

You say to me, "Love, take off your clothes."
You use your mouth to tell me so.
We hide in tunnels in your room.
You dirty me, I dirty you.

Your father calls, I grab your phone.
"Sir, I found your daughter under snow.
I held her shaking hands in mine
and we
prayed for heat we'd only feign to find.
