Obélix et Idéfix

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.

lyrics

Don't ask me why I I don't
Why I don't. Why I I don't
Drink... that devil alcohol.
Please
Don't ask me why I I don't
Why I don't. Why I I don't
Drink... it's nothing personal
You're not my shrink

[Jesse]
I can smell it on your tongue and behind your teeth
I been tryna sleep, young in a refinery
Get thee to a winery, I'm known as a whiner
Sport a shiner. Had it rammed down my throat in the minor league
Y'all don't read my liner notes or analyze the quotes
I scan the skies for ghost---riders at night in a panic, so
Hand over that can of Coke, I'll sign the manifold
Handsome folks that dance and smoke, I never been a fan of those
Hey you look sad and lonely - why, what's up?
oh... no, I'm fine but I arrived fucked up
I'm Obélix, sorry if I'm oblique or obsolete
I've always had a ominous feeling that's how it's gotta be
All I wanted was to stand up tall and make you proud
And I got half of that, at least it's the latter half
Matter fact, I'm glad I practice no faith or religion
I pray for wisdom, stay hidden and state I've made my decision, so

Don't ask me why I I don't
Why I don't. Why I I don't
Drink... that fucking alcohol.
Please
Don't ask me why I I don't
Why I don't. Why I I don't
Drink... it's something personal
the fuck you think.

[Nic]
Blind sober, dead ringer for an alcoholic,
L'enfant tomber au fond de la marmitte
The opposite of bad habit but still compulsive, and
Repulsive nonetheless; I'm a mess on account of motive.
And no, it's not religious. I told you: no opiates.
(Je suis) une mauviette épeurée, écoeurée, à l'air bète.
So tap that keg just don't beg me for help.
I'm doctors Jekyll and Banner; I'm scared of myself.

[Jesse]
woooo
steal fizzy lifting drinks. itchy trigger finger,
real busy kitchen sink. pretty picture of a
field with the missing link. sometimes I think it's like
the city isn't listening, but I'm simply indistinct.
Pity, isn't it? No, buddy, pity isn't it.
Nobody sins except in innocence
Pay attention when they say it's paying penitence
Patience, gentlemen. Take a second, take a sedative.
They pretend it's an amenity, like they could defend it with
obscenity, and then descend into infinity
Set adrift on anesthetic sea
Presented evidence but wasn't present at his sentencing
Let it ring, off to bigger and better things
To cigarettes and liquor in the midst of beheaded kings
Mixing up the medicine, bassment to the pavement
To the grave, men, I'm saving it for Satan. Ok then DON'T
