about

Originally on the album, "Jesus Porky"

lyrics

I see a dead tree.
Just something for the doggies.
Keisha drives her Hyundai.
She hates it when it's foggy.

Gina, 18, buys food her kid.
Her boyfriend quit.
Everything's 99 cents.
And Zack attempts to fix a dent.
The garage and the lawn the same.
Dad sells cocaine, starts a chain.

They talk about a sad land.
The tractors plough and the pickers pick.
They don't speak much English.
A hopeful wish that their kids will be the President.

Some run stores.
Some get robbed.
Some move.
Some love.
Some stay forever.
Some get shot.
Some work.
Some not.

Rain falls on a flat roof.
The Seventies are still newer.
Go to the taco truck booth.
Burritos replace manure.
I don't know how it got this way.
The channels change.
Put on some DMX or some artist that talks about sex.
Maybe I exaggerate.
Life wasn't great but it's home.

They talk about a poor world
Where little girls grow up to be little or nothing,
The walkers in the mall.
The rise and fall of the town that was the Delta Queen.

about

Ghost Peeps San Francisco, California

Some say that it was the work of the devil. A duo that should never have seen the light of day. Some even deny the very existence of this band, or having ever seen them live. But, alas, it once was. They did exist and it was something.
