It Just Came Out That Way (EP)

by Electric Needle Room

Sleeping 02:11
I'm not living my life I'm just pretending You're all over the world And I'm here sleeping
Don't Judge Me (free) 02:36
I wear white socks with black dress shoes I have libertarian political views I like Frappuccino and other frou frou drinks I won't give you any money if you're lazy I like the music of John Mayer And I don't like to comb my hair But don't judge me Don't judge me I talk to animals though they don't talk back I spend a lot of time staring at maps I don't drink alcohol, well at least not very much I try to get along with about everyone I don't mind watching chick flicks Sometimes my nose will be picked But don't judge me Don't judge me You're judging me right now
Well it's been years since I seen you We used to be pretty good friends It was about the time you moved out of state That we never called each other again Sure we are Facebook friends But really what kind of communication is that? How are the wife and kids? Oh you don't have any kids? I'm sorry about that. Who are you anyway? I used to know you so well. Remember when we went to see Mates of State? Remember ultimate frisbee every Tuesday night? Remember when we rocked out in our band in the basement? Remember that time at Charly's when you got in a fight? We were once close friends but now you just feel like a stranger to me. Now we meet for drinks to try to catch up but all we have to talk about are all the memories. Who are you anyway? I used to know you so well. But how ya' been? How ya' been?
Organic (free) 03:54
Walking through Whole Foods All the hipsters and the hippies staring at me I'm checking all the labels 'cause I'm trying really hard to be healthy I don't want to be 45 with a breathing machine And I don't want to die before I meet my grandchild I eat organic so I can live two years longer than you I eat organic. Believe it's not because I'm better than you Watch out for that high fructose corn syrup it's everywhere Trans fat and sodium are not my two best friends It doesn't really matter if you run twenty miles a day If you eat all that crap your heart will not be okay I eat organic so I can live two years longer than you I eat organic. Believe it's not because I'm better than you Let's go grab a whopper from the local Burger King That's enough calories to last us the entire week Or let's spend three times as much on a veggie burger It won't taste as good, but it won't clog or arteries. I drink organic so I can live two years longer than you I drink organic. Believe it's not because I'm better than you
Oprah Winfrey made the cover of her magazine Good 'cause I did not get enough of her on TV When she tells me what to buy and what to read I do what she says, she knows what I need She's my favorite billionaire I joined her book club twenty months ago I will only read it if she tells me so A few years back she started a daytime TV show and taught us things she thought we all should know I want to be like her, she is so smart I talk about her with my friends as I shop at the Wal-mart When she speaks I listen, I really take it to heart I've decided we should never ever be apart She goes through the same troubles I do everyday Well except for the money thing- she has plenty of that Like Dr. Phil, she reminds me that it'll all be ok As long as we take her advice and live our lives her way I want to be like her, she is so smart I talk about her with my friends, as I shop at the Wal-mart I wish she would run for President of the United States She might be the only one who could actually afford it
I'm Boring (free) 03:27
I don't go to parties anymore I don't have very many friends My wife and I like to sit on the couch Sometimes we watch a little TV We might go out for a drink But we must be home by 10 And dangit I must get my beauty sleep If we want to ever go out again I'm boring but I'm ok with it Hey maybe I'll just watch a movie For a little excitement But we're not going to a theatre There are too many people Plus I don't like driving You think you've figured me out Because there's not much to figure out You've probably predicted that this verse is nearly over And soon I'll be singing the chorus (chorus) I'm boring but I'm ok with it I'm living like there's tomorrow
We're underground But we are happy Will you join us? Let's kill the mainstream Kill the mainstream You won't find most of us on MTV or those stupid magazines that you always like to read And you won't find most of us on radio or that stupid TV show on the network ABC Your best bet's the internet to find the obscure and rarely heard But don't expect to do a Google search 'cause you'll find that your research will lead mostly to some turds Keep on digging You won't find most of us in Pitchfork or in Brooklyn, New York or rocking sold out shows I think a music geek who has a blog might have written about us once or twice a year ago We may be unpopular but that doesn't mean we're no good To think the only ones who are the best are the ones who win Grammys is completely absurd Keep on digging The best stuff you'll never hear is the best stuff without great PR Some random great band you heard on Myspace will never be big without luck or money
You and me, we should be together You were surrounded at a party By boys with ulterior motives Feeling a bit light-headed I snuck through the crowd I grabbed you by the hand Took you outside Sat you down Looked you in the eyes (and said) You and me should be together Let's take a walk in any direction I don't care about the destination As long as we're together As long as you're by my side It doesn't matter what we're doing With you I'll always have fun I'll adapt to all the changes That are inevitable (because) You and me should be together Forever and ever after
