from Want, For Nothing by Danger Grove

/
  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Thick, rich, and wide grooves that harbour bass that pounds and rhymes that do a sad, but weird though?

    Meghan's glorious artwork is big and huge and bold, like how it was meant to be seen. It almost glows in your hand, like rapidly cooling embers as the deepest darkness of the wood encroaches. The labels on the vinyl have their own special image that you can't even see on the internet yet.

    To the untrained eye, the vinyl itself may appear black. It is not only black; it is dark. It is so very, very dark.

    If you buy two copies you can juggle them. Some of these lines would be really mean to use in a DMC or ITF routine, so that's fun! We even made sure not to have it pressed on gross, lazy 180g vinyl which is a conspiracy by whoever sets shipping prices. We're onto you!

  • Cassette + Digital Album

    I don't think Lizard was even born when tapes were cool.

    I'm not sure any of us were born, at all.

    This casette is the colour of night, except the animals are the colours of animals. It has a bonus track that's not available on streaming sites or CD and it has that "cassette tape" sound you love.

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    I mean the cover is beautiful; the disc itself is printed with a gorgeous special picture of even more animals. The text is big enough to read easily unless you have useless bear eyes like Jesse, and you can play it in a car from ten years ago. It'll probably thump, too.

    Yeah actually I'm not sure why I was so dismissive at first. This disc is, if nothing else, pretty compact. You could probably carry twenty or thirty of them around with you and not even feel tired. Wanna try? Pony up.

about

this is the song that plays in jesse's head when it's time to remember to eat food, in spite of all opposition. it's not really a kids' song, but sometimes you gotta be a kid again to re-learn the basics of how to not just die.

lyrics

I gotta [C]eat, I gotta eat or I'm gonna die
I gotta [G]eat, I gotta eat or I'm gonna die
I gotta [C]eat, I gotta eat or I'm gonna die
If [F]I don't [G]eat, I'll [C]die
Because if [F]people don't [G]eat, they [C]die!

Fish gotta [C]swim, and if fish don't eat, they die
Birds gotta [G]fly, and if birds don't eat, they die
I got a [C]friend, and if they don't eat, they die
If [F]they don't [G]eat, they'll [C]die
Because if [F]things don't [G]eat, they [C]die!

What does the dog say? (WOOF) and if dogs don't eat, they die
What does the cat say? (WOOF) and if cats don't eat, they die
What does the mouse say? (WOOF) and if mouse don't eat they die
No matter how they cry
If friends don't eat, they'll die!

[Am]Up with the dawn, hit snooze on the rooster
Sugar in the gas tank, supercomputer
[F]Run to the job, punch a clock in the mouth
Hunger setting in but you're blocking it out
[Am]Not gonna doubt it, everybody's talking a
Bout it, shrinking is a loss to be proud of
[F]God has announced it's not enough to blast through
Pounds, now you gotta lose them last few ounces
[Dm]Can you count can you stop counting
Over the counter, under the mountain
[G7]Running on fumes is winning, feeling funny now the
Room is spinning - it's a new beginning!

I'm not [C]hungry, (not good not good enough / not good not good enough)
I don't [G]feel good (you would if you were good enough / not good not good enough)
Think I'm [C]ugly (you do not deserve to let the good inside)
[F]No, [G]that cannot be [C]right...
If [F]I don't [G]eat, I'll [C]DIIIIIIE!

'm not hungry (You're not hungry) but if I don't eat, I'll die
I don't feel good (You don't feel good) but if I don't eat, I'll die
Am I ugly? (You're so ugly) no that's not true, I'm fine
I've got to clear my mind because
If I don't eat, I'll die!

Because I'm big, they think I'm gonna die
Because I'm big, I've heard I oughta die
If I'm so big, I guess I shouldn't mind
But I am not my size, and
I don't deserve to die!

which I don't want to do.
which i DON'T want to do.

I gotta eat, I gotta eat or I'm gonna die
I gotta eat, I gotta eat or I'm gonna die
I gotta eat, I gotta eat or I'm gonna die
If I don't eat, I'll die
Because if people don't eat, they die!
