  • "Nothing Was Beautiful, And Everything Hurt" lapel pin (LIMITED EDITION of 100)

    Wear your dark sense of humor and/or nostalgia on your sleeve (or lapel, or any other place you feel appropriate) with this limited edition pin, and help fund the mixing/mastering of our new 4-song EP, "The Connotations Get Together, or Nothing Was Beautiful, And Everything Hurt". The design is a play on an illustration originally found in the Vonnegut classic, Slaugterhouse Five, but with a nihilistic twist in reference to the struggles of youth and hindsight. Each pin comes on a numbered backing card (edition of 100).

    Specs: 1.25" tall, antique nickel finish, double posts/black rubber clutches on back

    *NOTE: Due to the nature of the "antiquing" process, no two pins are 100% identical. Some may be more weathered than others, and this is completely normal for this finish option.

    Sold Out

lyrics

Take the money and run
I've gotta get myself out
Into the glorious sun,
I feel it (hey, hey)
There's romance in the air
And that's the reason I'm scared

Goin' out, goin' out, yeah
Goin' out, goin' out tonight
Yeah I'm goin' out tonight

Take the money and run
I've gotta blow it all out
Before I get on the run
I feel it (hey, hey)
She's an army of one
I turn the stereo on

Goin' out, goin' out, yeah
Goin' out, goin' out tonight
Yeah I'm goin' out tonight

Take the money and run
You make me feel like a whore
Am I the dirtier one?
I don't know (hey, hey)
All your intimacy
Is just a casual thing

Goin' out, goin' out, yeah
Goin' out, goin' out tonight
Yeah I'm goin' out tonight

'Cause I don't care
No I don't care
No I don't care what you think about this
But I won't tell
If you don't tell
And I won't tell my friends about this
No I won't tell
No I won't tell
No I won't tell myself I loved it

Oh yeah, are you ready?

'Cause life's been good to me
(Start and then you stop, then you do it all over again)
Yeah life's been good to me
Yeah life's been good to me
(Start and then you stop, then you do it all over again)
Yeah life's been good to me

Goin' out, goin' out, goin' out, goin' out, goin' out tonight
Yeah I'm goin' out tonight
'Cause tonight's the night
