Sven B. Schreiber Matt Lebofsky strikes again! This unique one-man music machine, enfant terrible of rock, master of the unexpected, and probably best known for his ingenious contributions to Wally Scharold's "miRthkon" project, confronts us with another highly unconventional recording full of surprises. It wasn't easy to pick a favorite track, because there are multiple candidates. In the end I chose the not-exactly-but-somewhat-close-to-title track because of its brutally thundering bass guitar. Boost the volume to max and listen - at your own risk! Favorite track: I Fail to Bury a Car in the Dry Creek Bed.

Track Name: Kitchener
I bet a millions dollars
Beneath your starchy collars
A little demon hollers, "Let's go north"

You think you have the answers
These smart ass necromancers
But watch your clumsy dances charging forth

I guess I'm an insider
Who drank the maple cider
I must be impolite and snuff your torch

Because I saw them
Because I heard them
Because I know them
Because I've been to... Kitchener

I'm watching how you lobby
For a new hockey hobby
And crave to eat a blobby donut hole

I get the anxious leaning
You long to find some meaning
As this bus is careening toward the pole

But make sure your perspecitve
Is not built on invective
This border still reflects the darkest soul

Because I saw them
Because I heard them
Because I know them
Because I've been to... Kitchener
Kitchener!
Track Name: I Fail to Bury a Car in the Dry Creek Bed
I am walking on a favorite path
Oaks or houses hiding everything
Counting paces and making up songs
Memories triggered by familiarity

It's what I like but it's not a hike
Not clearing my head but feeding it instead

I am stalking on a favorite path
I've been before - oh yes I have
But nobody knows about the treasure map
And I'll never reveal the mysterious x

It's what I like but it's not a hike
Not clearing my head but feeding it instead
Track Name: Includes Now
You might never be a hero
When all you have's that rusty knife
It could all amount to zero
At the end of your short life

There's a puddle in the valley
That once used to be a lake
You emerge from that dark alley
All the buildings seem so fake

Mountains rise...
Mountains rise...
Mountains rise...
Mountains rise...
Track Name: Projecting
Press me - pack down
Whisper or make no sound
Pressure building
Creatures arrive in town

Fester imposters
Preachers without a god
Minions jeering
We all live for one more fraud
Track Name: Grey Animals
This house could be improved
Like trim some trees, replace the roof
And maybe get it exorcised
Remove the ghosts behind my blurry eyes

I welcome critters in my yard
I eat the fruits that they discard
I watch the people on the tube
But why must they behave so goddamn rude?

Sometimes I turn the captions on
Relax with all the voices gone
Sometimes I keep the door ajar
When I leave and walk done to the bar

I hope this stupid world works out
But you can get why I have doubt
Track Name: Wait Up
Soon we'll be back home together
Returning to our funny ways
But until then I will remember
Because you've still two weeks to stay
About a thousand miles away
I don't have to mope around all day

Don't freak out or crash on the floor
Don't wait up for me

Soon we're on the road together
Driving west into the sun
It seems the twilight lasts forever
And I don't care you're having fun
Even though you're only one
Because when we're two a new day has begun

Don't freak out or crash on the floor
Don't wait up for me
Don't freak out or crash on the floor
Don't wait up for me
It's fine you'll see...
Don't wait up for me
