lyrics

ME:
what kind of card do you get for a dear friend
who woke, realized something was different
that it hadn't been the same for months or years
you build a house on solid foundation
shifting plates, you don't even consider

MY FRIEND:
post-event everyone calls you:
"mixed blessings, you're better off anyway"
they're not the ones who just wasted that damn time
now that i have found some distance
can't help but wish i'd ran instead of walked

two weeks now i've wasted, all on the family cat
spending time and money when it don't wanta come back

FAMILY CAT:
perhaps i was tired from trying
it's my nature, or maybe just boredom
left my milk in the sitting room still warm
i'm not sorry for the time i spent here
but when i get an itch, i just can't help but scratch

about

housebroken Indiana

after years of jamming and waiting for the right flannel-clad diva to front them, geoff and alex finally formed housebroken, a minimalist rock duo with heavy interests in americana, funk, post-punk and annoying time signature changes.
