Travis Button Got the same feeling when I heard this track by Dear Blanca that I had the first time I heard John McCauley of Deer Tick sing Baltimore Blues No. 1. Different yes, but reminiscent in the dirty vocals that bleed through the equally dirty instrumentation with words that feel like they mean something. Could also easily draw comparisons to The Districts which is definitely not a bad thing. Favorite track: Havana Tonight.

Track Name: Moving to Texas
Couldn't dress him up enough
to make the fool look serious
They say at least he's fuckin' up
in a better place

I remember how he talked so loud
and God, I hate to put him down
but every time he came around
he talked about himself

Honestly,
Honestly,
Honestly, could you ever see him going anywhere?

My skin won't take to this makeup
Close the lid, I've had enough
Well my opinions don't mean much
if no one thinks I'm here

For once my voice won't carry far
but once I find out where you are
I'll try my best to fill you in
on everything I'm doing..

Honestly,
Honestly,
Honestly, could you ever see this going anywhere?
Track Name: Griping
Keep the line open
I know you're young and we both like to talk
but here's to hoping
they still care and they will call

Quit going in my bedroom
and leaving the room with the T.V. on
I pick up behind you
but you're old enough to do that on your own

What did they say?
Run the tape again
I think that I just heard my name
What was that?
Run the tape back
I know that I just heard my name

I know where you've been
cuz you never turn off the lights when you go
and you're dad got pissed
when he couldn't find the remote control
Well you're just like him
You can't hand over the controls
You're one of five men
that constantly shake hands with themselves
Track Name: Musclehead
Can you take my dog?
I named him after me
and I'm moving off this street
I can trust you, man
I know you'll treat him well
and I'll see him when I can...

Oh, I won't make a move
I'll stay in my room
they're saying "where's the money at?"
Oh, there's nothing I can do
It is what it is
I just hope they don't shoot back

Hey, I know it's late..
You don't know me but it's straight
Help me get to the hospital!
God, I need a ride
Can we just talk inside?
Don't worry I won't kill you..

Oh, I won't make a move
I'll stay in my room
they're saying "where's the money at?"
Oh, there's nothing I can do
It is what it is
I just hope they don't shoot back

We set the car on fire
and she set Ben off again
It's always something here on Senate Street
I'll sit on my porch
while he calls his girl a whore
I'm frozen in his good graces

Oh, I won't make a move
I'll stay in my room
they're saying "where's the money at?"
Oh, there's nothing I can do
It is what it is
I just hope they don't shoot back
Track Name: Comrade
What is there to say? I'm feeling down
I'm staring at my face, I'm such a clown
I didn't see it coming, I guess I really couldn't
but man, I wish that you were still around

I woke up from a dream that you were in..
convinced that I had just seen my old friend
The last time that I saw you I sang a song of mine
about the search for shade in the summertime

Reality is slowly sinking in
The gravity of things has got me pinned
I'll never make sense of why you're gone
I've come to peace but I'm not moving on

Everyday I long to reminisce
My comrade and my friend you're truly missed
and I think of you often, the good times that we had
For the time I spent with you, I'm glad
Track Name: A-HA
They're talking
My hearing just keeps getting worse
I'm not him
but he has a way with words

Take it out on me, babe
You have my pride, that's all that I can give to you

Well the bag ripped
Now you're letters are sailing across town
and I'm leaving
Tell me who's like their mother now

Take it out on me, babe
You have my pride, that 's all that I can give to you
Track Name: No Protector
She's gone and I'm falling
for every stupid, sappy line I hear
My heart is breaking, tears are falling
Can someone change the station for me, please?

Soon there gonna send someone to tell me
that I just need to find a tree to climb
With someone else's words directed at my dad
when just like me he thought he lost his mind

Soon be home, babe
Soon be mine
Soon lose track of your precious time

Memory lane is in the worst part of town
and it worries me when you go by yourself
and you're right, I'm no protector
but tell me, what are you?
You're a stubborn girl too proud to ask for help

Soon be home, babe
Soon be mine
Soon lose track of you precious time
Track Name: King of Salters
You were so much more
then a roadside white cross
You shed your royal blood
to wear a crown of moss

I ride beside a friend
laid flat and pressed so thin
They found us when they found the car
Surrounded! Do they know who you are?

You wore your favorite shirt
on your last day with us
Buried on your throne
with flakes of gold and rust

If he asks you how I've been
what will you tell him?
Can we meet at his parents house?
Is that where you are now?

You wore your favorite shirt
on your last day with us
Buried on your throne
with flakes of gold and rust
Track Name: Havana Tonight
I can't stand seeing you like this
My heart is chipping away
I know that you're not really emotionless
and it's selfish to ask you to stay

I'll never forget the look on your face
while I hoped that I had made you proud
You sat there and smiled while we played
and that means so much to me now

And we'll dance to Besame Mucho
and I know that you will soon feel better
But know this before you go
I will love you forever

Rest your head and close your eyes
Know that I'm thinking of you
It kills me to know that you're living in pain
and there's nothing that I can do

And we'll dance to Besame Mucho
and I know that you will soon feel better
But know this before you go
I will love you forever
Track Name: Hunny (Don't Mind If I Tao)
Just breathe in and out and count to twelve
It seems like a joke but it can help
