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

featuring Tara Holloway

lyrics

[jesse]
how do you go from I love you I need you to
you're not my people I don't want to see you
a camel could squeeze through the eye of a needle
before I could read you as violent or evil, but
where did my friends I would speak to all sneak to?
silence is not always peaceful. ease is deceitful.
no grease for the the squeaky wheel, if we
keep it real - I sleep around and eat my

meals alone, real alone, no matter what I
feel alone and fear unknowns. it's bad enough to
lose, but I've had it up to half as much as I can breathe in
without seeming combatitive and rude
Yeah I know that isn't news, but my attitude
is new: you will believe a mannequin can move
Stiff limbs, stiff upper lip, stiffen up a bit
Nasty fasciitis, such a Midas touch
I'm not quite as much a gilded cage match
Promoter, rather throw a fight than a punch
i'm the same inside as I was
and so's the so and so that I didn't trust!
Don't tell me I was right all along all at
once! All quiet on the front for months
I am disgusted as much as I am discussed
So I am a shut-in. Shut up.

[Tara]
I do not go out and seek my pleasure
I do not belong...
I do not go out and seek my pleasure
I do not belong wherever we've been
Seen together, but
I am never home (woo)
I hide inside, alone, (woo) but
I am never home

[Jesse]
Home is where the heart is, hard enough know that
No defended borders leaves the hearth unguarded
Holding up the bargain, common goods for barter
Not as good as neighbours, call me Jean-Paul Sartre
Hell is other artists, art is deadly weapons
Truth is an art, when you use it it looses a
Dart with a breath in my neck's direction; it
Wasn't protected against infection.
No place to rest when my best estimate is a
Guess. I'm Les Nessman: no walls, I'm forever a
Guest. I'm your ghost in the halls. I'm as close as a
Call on the phone you cut off. I'm no one at all.
No little talks, no back talk, should have made the
Whole plane of the same stuff as the black box
Indestructible, easily corrupted though
Magnetic zeros and ones scratched off

remember when a greyhound ticket was a reservation
no name no date just a destination
no hustle no haste no hesitation
I'm on it, I'm gone
