about

The Peabodys Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Punk rock should be fast, gritty, and straightforward, with hooks that stick like flypaper. Simple like all great ideas. The chords, the words, the melodies should feel like they've always been there, waiting for some average schlubs to snatch them out of the air.

The Peabodys model these virtues. Their blasts of buzz about busted love and teenage wasteland are masterworks of punk simplicity.

Track Name: I Sing About Girls
I sing about
I sing about girls
I think about
I think about girls

I don't know what it is about them
Maybe because they drive me so insane
Don't care about politics
Or stupid guitar licks
Forget that shit, man
It's all boring

I sing about girls
Track Name: It's So Easy (To Hate You)
It's so easy to hate you
It's so easy to hate you

You make me sick
When I see you, want to throw up on my shoes
You're such a twit
Made your picture into a dartboard

It's so easy to hate you
Your stupid face just makes me want to kill you

The things you've done
Make Hitler seem nice in comparison
You're such a turd
Want to flush you down the can

Whoa oh oh
Track Name: Waste
It's been five years I've seen you
Now I'm faced with an adult
You're content, and your smile kinda hurts my eyes

You ask me what I've been doing with my life
'Nothing really' is the only real reply
You've proven that I've wasted all my time

I just waste my life away

Maybe you knew what you wanted from the start
But I was not so lucky, and I find that I'm still lost

In this wasteland between child and adult
Responsible, but hating it so much
I've gathered that I suck at growing up

I just waste my life away

It's not like you to do the things you do
Am I the only one who seems to see the truth?

I just waste my life away
Track Name: Don't Call It A Breakup
Don't call it a breakup
Let's just say I'm downsizing this relationship
And I have to let you go
Early retirement
I've begun to realize that you're not pulling your weight
And I'd rather pull my own
Than spend another day with you

You will say I'm out of my mind
But I've made it up, and you're out the window

I want you out of my life
You're just a waste of my time
Your act was quite convincing, it's true
But I've seen through all your lies and bullshit
And now we're through

I've decided to scrap my elaborate escape plan
And just tell it like it is
Then turn and run like hell
Don't take it personally
I'm sure there's someone out there just for you
But it isn't me

Someone who enjoys long walks on the beach
And endless hours of boredom, lies, and unfulfillment

I want you out of my life
You're just a waste of my time
Your act was quite convincing, it's true
But I've seen through all your lies and bullshit
And now we're through

Now we're through
Track Name: Stop The Clock
Almost feel the seconds ticking away
As my life is dripping down the drain
And I wish that I could stop the clock
Or at least slow it down

But it just keeps going on and on
It keeps on going on and on
Don't waste another day

There were some good times in my life a few years ago
But that flame burned out too quick
Now I'm left here with the embers and the smoke

And blindly, I just keep going on and on
I just keep going on
Don't waste another day
Track Name: It Only Hurts When I Think
Maybe it's just a torture that I can't resist
Yesterday looked through our pictures
Perhaps I miss the pain that used to be so constant
Had to find something to remind me of it

I've looked down the barrel of a loaded gun
For so long I'm numb to it now

It only hurts when I think anymore
I'm not crying in my beer anymore
I don't kill myself to sleep anymore
It only hurts when I think

A year since I last had your lips pressed against mine
Yet I taste them when I close my eyes
A knife in my back that I have grown accustomed to
Just try hard not to think of you

I've walked on the edge of a bottomless cliff
For so long I'm used to it now

It only hurts when I think anymore
I'm not crying in my beer anymore
I don't kill myself to sleep anymore
It only hurts when I think
Track Name: Crib Notes
This is mine
And you can't take it away
This is all that's left of me
I don't know why I'm still here
Waiting for you to come back to start a new mistake
Anyways, I just wanted you to know
That I'm keeping an eye open
And I won't be fooled again
I'm scratching the rules in my arms
So I won't forget
Crib notes for the test I failed
If the fourth time's a charm I will pass
And I won't be coming back
The words I want to hear
Will hold no power over me
The life that's in my head
The life we almost led
Is gone and it's not coming back

You're calling me again
And your voice instills the same
Ache in my heart that I felt
The last time that you left
And the time before that
Still, I hope you're really back
And the world will work again
But I know that's not the truth
It's still falling apart in my hands
