ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"By the EP’s end, I’ll grudgingly admit it — maybe Hirsch did originally play these songs on her own with just a guitar for gangs of hipster coffeehouse-dwellers. Make no mistake, though: this is how they were meant to be played, right here."

- Jeremy Hart, Space City Rock

Based in Houston, TX, Jealous Creatures is a rock band comprised of Sarah Hirsch on guitar and vocals, Lisa Gallo Roth on bass, Josh Barry on drums, Rob Smith on keyboard, and Ian Hlavacek on lead guitar. These songs were recorded at The Bubble in Austin, TX by Chris "Frenchie" Smith.

We would like to send our special thanks to all the family, friends, and fans who have made the release of this EP possible.

Lyrics

COFFEE STAINS
Boston is so far away
I think the entire thing is gay
Coffee stains and whipped cream mess
Do you think this is the best?

We know you want us to be real tough
Go kill for money, for, like, useful stuff
Forty nights and forty days
Do you think this is okay?

Plane trips are dangerous
And diseases ill
I guess dual psychosis
Has its thrills


FAITH IN MAN?
All the messianic promises that you're coming back
Seem to feed the fleeting faith that I sorely lack
But seeing as I've found neither cause nor call,
Is it better to trust blindly or simply to trust not at all

All you've given to believe in is the fact that you'll be leaving
But is it shameful to say I might not miss you anyway?

So I'll make atonement to you for all my sins
And I'll let you be the judge and try my blood and skin
Because I stand condemned of trying to bring you down
With my filthy hands on your heavenly wings and my leaden feet stuck on the ground

All you've given to believe in is the fact that you'll be leaveing
But is it shameful to say I might not miss you anyway?
Between the mercy you've shown others and the castigation that I've suffered
If this is what they call heaven, maybe I'm not in need of saving

I've made my penance, but still no forgiveness from you
So what in the hell do you want me to do?
It leads me to question how useful a savior could be
When you can't even redeem yourself to me


ANDATE
Spitting curses at the sky
The angels all look down and sigh
Trying to bind heaven to earth
And angry at all for all it's worth

And I take...

I count devils to fall asleep
To whom should I pray my soul to keep
The angels stay out of my sight
It's gonna be another only night

And I take...


WHEN I PUT YOU DOWN
Mr. Mr, where could you be?
You left me here all alone
All is uneventful, I want you so badly
I know you are not my own

I try to get out, I try to fight it,
But when I put you down, I stand you up

Won't get in a fight, won't even bother
I know I can't win this match
She's better for you, I'll go to another
I can't play you like that

I try to get out, I try to fight it,
But when I put you down, I stand you up...

Take me as I am, let me abuse you,
You are the device of my education
Song and rhyme, I need you all the time
Just can't work in moderation


EGGS ALONE
I've been living off sweet tea, nicotine and black coffee
Cigarettes and turpentine are a favorite high of mine
You and I and the sing along, getting all the lyrics wrong
Sitting still, watching the tide, rotting out from the inside

After all is said and done, I'm not sure I'm having fun
But the sad beauty of your face just might prove my saving grace
Drunken kisses on the floor, shiver, shaken, want some more
Too much champagne at one time, still I think I'm doing fine

Whoa oh, like I said
I don't need the aggravation
Whoa oh, like I said
So much for this big vacation
