Genetic Malfunction

You have it so easy
you laugh at those not given
your Genetic Malfunction
who do you think you're fooling?
it only works in the movies
or so I keep telling myself

-chorus-
Take your square jaw back to the gym
where you belong
thinking nonsense, and feeling nothing

Now that we've established
just how important you are
take a look at yourself
and tell me what I should fear
what is so much better
tell me if you please
c'mon, tell me

[chorus]

Don't mind me
I'll be the one ignoring you now

How long did you think it would take
for you to fall down?
I'm sorry I'm not there for you
get out of my way now
cuz now its my turn to be
beautiful
you genetic malfunction

[chorus]

Liner Notes

Thank you: My friends and family. Without you I could not keep going. In no particular order: Mom, Don, Rachel, Jim, Elliot, Penny, Sherry, Meredith, Smokey, Melisa, Carol, Jenna, Cat, Mon, Heather, Amy, Stephanie, and Denny, Chuk, Jack, and Mojo (Bodega).  May those I may have forgotten please forgive me.

This is my third self-produced project, and I appreciate the support of everyone who has taken the time to take a second look at something that may not be traditional entertainment.

Recorded at 2312 N. Blvd (My apartment) between September, 2001, and July, 2002. I use Rhode and Shure mics, De Armond electric, Yamaha, and Alvarez acoustic guitars, Ovation bass, Yamaha keyboard, Behringer mixing console, Line6 POD direct boxes for guitar and bass, Cry Baby wah pedal.

Photography by Melisa Dettloff. I wrote, produced, performed, recorded, edited, mixed, and mastered all of these songs, created the cover/package artwork, and additional photography.
