about

Our third Digital 7” installment, “Last Straw” might remind you of Porchsleeper from days gone by. This tune has been in the back of the Sleeper fridge long enough to grow hair and hit on the mayo. It’s rooted in the tried and true Vert formula of building a song from a turned phrase related to drinking and breaking up (surprise!). Brian unleashed some of his best-evar guitar noodling in the choruses, and Vert channels his inner Eric Patrick Kelly in the outro. There’s even a bit of lyrical sacrilege for good measure.

If you like upbeat misery, this one’s for you.

lyrics

I suppose an apology is in order
I don’t suppose I’m gonna get one too
But there’s some things that we said last night
That probably didn’t sit quite right,
Don’t think I’ll get one too

I suppose I could crawl inside of this bottle
Or I could crawl back home to you
With my tail tucked between my legs
And suck a half a dozen eggs
Don’t think I’ll get one too

I get the feeling that I’m drinkin’ through the last straw
But my feelings don’t mean a thing

Heaven knows I’ve said every prayer in the bible
It only shows Jesus hates us too
So go and fill up that collection plate
It isn’t gonna change our fate
Cuz He hates us too

And so it goes until tonight turns into tomorrow
And after close it’s back home to you
Where you’ll throw my failures in my face
Then head of to your sister’s place
Don’t think I’ll get one too

I get the feeling that I’m drinkin’ through the last straw
But my feelings don’t mean a thing
I get the feeling that I’m drinkin’ through the last straw
Yeah the last straw is breakin’ everything
