about

Golly & the Geebirs Des Moines, Iowa

"This oozing is indicative of their sound, crashing like seafoam green waves cresting, falling, and sinking your feet into the sand. That exuberance alone pulls you in, and although it might thrash you around, rest assured it will set you back down safe and sound."
-Bruce James Bales

Track Name: Life Alert Saved My Children
Yeah we're rolling up our windows, after spitting on your bones, screaming momma take us home, we're picture perfect clones, with no problems of our own

I find it kind of hard to leave my home, but I find it kind of easy acting cheesy all alone, It's all fun and games when no one knows your name, oh I like to act young oh I like to act dumb.

Yeah we're mocking our elders, all the way back home, yeah we're mocking our elders, with no problems of our own

Help
I've fallen
I can't get up
Help
I've fallen
I can't get up
my kids won't help
Track Name: Filler Song #4
Oh say can you see, blood in the river while the chemicals bleed

don't know what to think, staring off at to many screens

oh say can you see, blood in the oil as americans bleed

don't know what to think staring off at to many screens
Track Name: In Chunks
a body is an ornament or so some say, I will rot away oh I'm quick to rot away, the fountain of youth is a child's attitude, I will rot away oh I'm quick to rot away, it seems like peoples souls are the first to decay. I will rot away oh I'm quick to rot away, Body's in the ground while my head is in those clouds, I will rot away oh I'm quick to rot away

It's easy to decay oh I'm quick to rot away
in this day and age ain't got shit to say
it's easy to decay oh I'm quick to rot away
in this day and age ain't got time to stay
Track Name: Waste In Haste
on days like these, when I forget my keys, I pound my head outside my door, wonder what I have in store, for the rest of my life oh I just want to die

I am always so melodramatic
I am always so fucking close to giving up

on days like that, when I forget to wear my hate, I wonder who I could be if I didn't look like me, for the rest of my life oh I just want to die

on days like this, when I forget to make my wish, my birthday candles are a waste, theres cat hair in my fucking cake, for the rest of my life, oh I just want to die
Track Name: Burnt
how would I ever know, I was never bound to grow up so old, I was never told, son you're growing so fucking cold

I don't want you to believe, I burned out at just fifteen, show you what I mean, if you'd only ever looked for me
Track Name: Mancy
man and the sea
salt in the breeze
oh I'm getting weak knees
fell in love with a beach

I want to drown in this place
just give up, let my head, fall beneath these waves oh
i want to drown in this place
Track Name: Ode To Giving Up
hold your head up high, act like you don't wonder why you'd want to stay alive

all my friends have moved away, I make excuses not to see the ones in my state, I forgot how to use my front door, don't think I'm a good friend anymore

smile left smile right, act like you don't wonder what it would be like to die

I'm inactive only out of fear, I want to blame someone I can't look in the mirror, I can't think of anything worse, than seeing I'm not a good guy anymore

heres to giving up
cheers I'm giving up
Oh I'm giving an
ode to giving up
Track Name: Susans' Movin'
susans' movin' ya better get on grovin'
Track Name: Hacklefly
I don't know why I'm invading your land, but they keep telling me to shut up and be a man

I don't give a damn, you can, take it all from me, I just want to be free

I can feel all this blood on my hands, if this is what it means to be a man

well i don't give a damn, you can, take it all from me, I just want to be free
Track Name: My Favorite Dad Band
no more do you have to see, my stupid face on big old screens, no more do you have to hear my silly voice ringing in your ears

I'm going deaf I'm going to die

start digging graves, we're dinosaurs, play same old songs you've heard before, we're going deaf we're gonna die

no more do you have to clap, after every song every fade to black, no more do you have to wish, we couldn't sing we wouldn't live

we're going deaf, we're gonna die

clear out the grave, we're dinosaurs, play same old songs you've heard before, we're going deaf we're gonna die
Track Name: Save Your Skin
I just want to know if I cut off my hands, would I be a man, would I understand, I just got to know when I bite my tongue, can I say it sucks, I'd love to say it sucks, I just need to know when I plug my ears, will I know you're here, will I know I'm here, I just got to know when I close my eyes, do you hope I die, do I hope I die

I don't want to grow up, I just want to give up, I don't want to know you, I don't want to know who I am

I'm fighting back tears, I'm fighting back sleep, in a couple of years oh I'm sure I'll be fine, I'm fighting back fears, I'm fighting back me, in a couple of years oh I'm sure I'll be fine, Im fighting back tears, I'm fighting back sleep, In a couple of years oh I hope I'll be fine, I'm fighting back fears, I'm fighting back me, In a couple of years oh I hope I'll be fine

I found a fatal flaw, save your own skin

I found a fatal flaw, I'm going down with the ship, save your own skin,I found a fatal flaw, in every relationship, I'm in

I'm not a good man, I lie and say I am, I will never change, I'm a shadow of a dark wave, pull back my skin, I said I'd let you in, throw me out to sea, when you realize there's nothing much to me

I don't think that I blame you but it's easier
I don't think that I blame you but it's easier than admitting
Track Name: Beach Fog
I wanna be, another beach boy and write you pretty songs, to easily i lose the beach and just drift off into the fog
Track Name: May Be Some Time
to all my old friends, I just meant to say it's such a shame, that I don't know you, quite like I used to, titans' tugging on my bones better tidy up this home get on my own, leave behind my pale blue dot I just want to be forgot

neptune hopefully sometime soon will come and rescue me I just need a way out I don't want to fade out into the kieper belt burnt out as I've ever felt now I'm forever lost never find my pale blue dot

we all burn out alone
Track Name: I Peaked In High School
I don't want to keep writing these shitty songs
I just want to sit out in the audience

I'm giving up
much to young
just like momma said

I think I peaked way back when in high school
just like my momma said, I would if I acted cool

I peaked oh
Im drowning oh
