Lovey Dovies - "Taunting The Cosmos" 11/14 Tour EP


This month, before our little 9-day jaunt up the east coast in the cool November sleet, Kevin and I decided to start demo'ing some of the arrangements we've been working with.

After we recorded my acoustic and vocals at the practice space, Kevin brought them home and recorded his keys, baritone and vocals, and mixed; the whole process taking about three days, in between work shifts. What came out is a pretty dead-on representation of what we've been working towards, and we hope you are as pleased with it as we are. Less creating so much more.

"Betrayed" is an old tune about admission, guilt and getting better. Parts of it are factual. "Waking by 6" deals with the punishment of labor for money, attempting to believe in the myth of hard work pays off, and the difficulty of self-improvement. "Half of Me" is about wishing you and your best friend could die together.

The hard copy of these were limited to a tour run of about 100, each cover is a different collage created by the tireless hands of Mr. Kevin Comarda, who most certainly also gets recording and production cred all over this little baby of his. This will likely be pressed to vinyl (just jinxed it), and we'll be recording a full album of this stuff throughout the next handful of months. Enjoy.

Track Name: Betrayed (exonerated/forgiven v.)
I betrayed all my friends.
I cheated on my woman.
I lied to my grandmas.
I even kicked the dog.

I went fishing didn't eat the catch,
My dad calls I never call him back.
I put a lot of shit into my arms,
I broke into a car when I was drunk
at 8 AM.
And I've dreamt of murdering.
I got jerked off in the park.
My family's torn apart.

Oh, If there's one thing
That you should hear,
Before you come with me,
I'm the kinda guy I'll always make you unhappy.

Oh, Baby, I'm a piece of scum,
The shit you clean under your thumb.
Baby, I'm the kind of guy that I,
I make you wanna die, get out while you still can.

And I left my only son,
And I'll quit right when she's about to come.
And I lied to my gram paw
I even had to put down our dog.

Oh, If there's one thing
That you should hear,
Before you come with me,
I'm the kinda guy I'll always make you unhappy.

Oh, Baby, I'm a piece of scum,
The shit you clean under your thumb.
Baby, I'm the kind of guy that I,
I make you wanna die, get out while you still can.
Track Name: Waking by 6
Waking by 6
Sleeping by 8
Look at my hands,
Look what they've made
And I don't have time,
To spend any.
I don't anything is that mean?

It got tired,
Taken by chance.
It got broke
Living romance.
Glad we got old.
Taking it light.
I dunno why everything I do is at night.

Coffee is new.
Uppers are old.
Liquors been banned,
So you've been told.
Track Name: Half of Me
I don't know if I can be afraid when
You tremble, when you fade, 'cause
I can see the same moon as you.

Oh and up and down the stairs I hear my name
I'm glad I feel no shame
I can see the same moon as you.

Everytime I look into your eyes
It makes me want to cry
Knowing that you'll die without me.

Half of me

Oh please treat me
Like you need me,
Don't leave it.

Watching the rain come down
You don't believe it when it hits the ground
But I know it won't be long. It won't be long. It won't be long. It won't be long.

I know, It won't
Be long, 'fore I,
I go, and leave
You here, alone.
And on and on.
