A late night party anthem inspired by the bars and music venues of Athens, Ohio.


Firecracker firecracker sis-boom-bah
One for the shitholes one for the bars
Volume at 11 sounds about right
For the drunken motherfuckers looking for a fight
Casa Cantina and The Union too
Jackie O’s pub where they make their own brew
Head down to The Skull for heavy metal night
Leather-clad bikers on PBR highs

The walls are shakin’ this forsaken hole is gonna burn down
We’ll light the fuse you can’t refuse the power of this town
A hand grenade serenade it’s like a firecracker

Alcoholic smokin’ chronic breakin’ the law
Move on through the night we’re gonna wait for the dawn
Lunar light is shinin’ gonna make my own way
Portion of distortion ‘cause rock n roll pays


Where do lies go once they are told
First our thoughts are bought and then sold
Drowning sorrows celebrate
Amplified in altered states



from Firecracker, released March 22, 2015
