lyrics

Morro Bay

I went down to Morrow Bay to see how it goes
I’ve been talking to myself and I think that it shows
Got in my car but sat in the back
getting low, feet up to switch a towel for pants
When you feel like trash, there’s nothing to stand on
but the sand in your shoes and the colors of heaven
Coconut oil on the steering wheel
Almost slid out the window with no last meal
Get a good picture to remember me by
There’s a chance by magic I’ll turn to moonlight
Keeping it cold and my boundaries steady
Saying, Hi, to strangers
We gotta be friendly

Midwesterners in Cali, remembering the corn times
How deep did your basement go
I’ve been sleeping in a pickup and I think that it shows

Wet to the bone, drying off in the afterglow
Bragging I’ll name my boat Infinite Slo-mo
Laughing is easy
Our words are grim
Walking through fire while singing a hymn
You took off your shoes to connect with the Earth
I looked in your eyes because I liked how it hurt
You’re not my man but I’m gonna wanna beg
I’ve got plenty of that if you’re still into legs

Midwesterners in Cali, remembering the corn times
How deep did your basement go
I lost my cherry in a barn and I think it still shows

Holding on to my girl careful of her sunburn
Hot at the waist
Beer going in for the cure
Learn how to share and you won’t need to fight
Learn how to dance and kick out the string lights
I bring all my money when I go to town
There’s no need to save for a wedding gown
94’ Civic, real buttons and levers
dent on the side, wheels dusty forever
This fiver is my last and it lasts twenty miles
I’ll never give up on selling you smiles
Ripped a hole in my shirt
I wanted to win
I never let go if there’s a medal to pin

Midwesterners in Cali, remembering the corn times
Remembering the basement shows
I gave my soul to wizard now I got perfect flow

I went down to Morrow Bay to see how it goes
I’ve been talking to myself and I think that it shows
Why would you laugh at a thing like that
The world is mean enough, but so are those tight pants
A love that’s in pieces is the pieces of life
With a beautifully sharpened Japanese knife
you can cut it in half and then again twice
Remembering rain how it tastes so nice
I’ll take what I get I’ve never been so picky
God’s milk gets around and it makes everything sticky
I want you, and I love you, and I gotta get even
Tonight is my first as a runaway kitten

Midwesterners in Cali, remembering the corn times
Remembering the basement shows
I gave my cherry to a rich boy so my kisses make gold
I’ve got perfect love and I think you should know
I got kicked in the nose and I think it still shows
