about

Self titled debut album from The Stewart Dolly (old lineup). Blue Album inspired riffs combine with Blue Album inspired melodies and somehow create something that is not like the Blue Album at all. Includes classic cuts like Slow Jamz, Hero Drink, Cellartime, and Cubicles.... So classic that the new lineup still plays these songs live.

Track Name: Slow Jamz
I’m out of state
Getting in late
Glad to be back
And get back on track
A while ago
My mind was made up
But now it is not
Still up in Vermont

suddenly I can’t decide
should I leave or stay inside
or hang at the beach under a palm tree
a decision ain’t worth it cause I’ll disagree

I had a dream
that I went somewhere
when I woke up
I was still here
With all you creeps
who know what I need
I need a map
That’s all I need

suddenly I can’t decide
should I leave or stay inside
or paint in the woods under a pine tree
a decision ain’t worth it cause I’ll disagree

suddenly I can’t decide
Should I leave or stay inside
or hang at the beach under a palm tree
a decision ain’t worth it cause I’ll disagree
I’m leaving this place and so you won’t see me
Could be a mistake but that won’t stop me
Track Name: Hero Drink
Go get some rest
Be ready to die tomorrow
Going out west
Was the start of all our sorrows

But you gotta admit
The promise has nothing to do with this

Romance unfleshed
Just a though repressed by my ego
There’s no time for that
Just be ready to die tomorrow

But you gotta admit
The promise has nothing to do with this
Track Name: Mary is an Intern; Her Husband is a Schmuck
Mary is an intern at a fortune 500
Spending Saturdays dancing to Elvis Presley
Her husband stays home and watches T.V.
She tells him to get up but he just plays the doubler

Mary is an intern and her husband is a schmuck
She gave him a chance, but he just gives it up
She stares him down as he puts on a frown
She gave him a chance but he’s all out of luck

Now Mary’s saying how far we’ve fallen
From that apartment way up in Vermont
She says why can’t you just be like the others
He says whatever Mary I’ve had enough of this

Mary is an intern and her husband is a schmuck
She gave him a chance, but he just gives it up
There’s no surprise that all she gets are lies
She gave him a chance but he’s all out of luck

So Mary says exactly what is left is for us to accept the fact
That this was doomed from the start
That is, unless you can do your part from now on

Mary is an intern and her husband is a schmuck
She gave him a chance, but he just gives it up
There’s no reply, he’s out the door, says goodbye
She gave him a chance but he’s all out of luck
Track Name: A MidSummer Vacation
A midsummer vacation beneath the sun
I lay down and think on the white beach
The roulette of life spinning round and round
What have I caught hold of, what have I lost

The world is turning, dreams are right here
The world will change into any given color
I’m going to have fun with today
I can’t go back to the moment

I only hear the sound of waves
I’ve over exerted myself, my body is worn
Though I know this, there are things I can’t do
Hanging out of reach

The world is turning, dreams are right here
The world will change into any given color
I’m going to have fun with today
I can’t go back to the moment
Track Name: Back Magnet
How do you solve an unsolvable case
I’ve got an answer there’s no time to waste

Back magnets on my mind
Back magnets all the time

The knowledge is gruesome it makes me proud
I’ll show you the way and lead you to cloud

Back magnets on my mind
Back magnets all the time
Track Name: Funhouse
Shell out you dough
I swear we’ll walk real slow
I promise this is worth your time
Watch your shoes
That’s what you gotta do
You just can’t trust your eyes

I can’t see anything in here
And I don’t care
The floor is moving, I am losing grip
On what’s out there

You're walking through
All these crazy rooms
Not sure of what you’ll find
But I already know
How this is gonna go
The gorilla gets me everytime

I can’t see anything in here
And I don’t care
The floor is moving, I am losing grip
On what’s out there

There’s not much out there x2
And I don’t care

I can’t see anything in here
And I don’t care
The floor is moving, I am losing grip
On what’s out there
Track Name: Cubicles
I sit here in this cubical and I wonder why
Am I stuck here, can’t I get out, I may just cry

It’s a cube with a desk and a chair
And I swear that they’re everywhere

I’m losing my mind and I’m only on number three
How many more can I do before I start to see me?

It’s a cube with a desk and a chair
And I swear that they’re everywhere

I’m gone and I’m out, I’ve finally lost it
It’s time to go home but oh wait now I’m a chip

It’s a cube with a desk and a chair
And I swear that they’re everywhere
Track Name: Cellartime
The door slams shut
Be glad we didn’t hunt
Tearing up ghosts in the road was enough
Waiting by the televisions light
For a good answer but we’re not polite
Down to the basement, behind Frida’s eyes
Interrogation before marshmallow pies

Shivering in the cellar through the night
It’s so warm outside
Shivering even though it’s summertime
And it’s so warm outside

Lock the door
Find comfort on the floor
Trying to sleep but I just can’t get warm
Try counting sheep inside a sandstorm
Trenches are deep, to late to leave anymore

Shivering in the cellar through the night
It’s so warm outside
Shivering even though it’s summertime
And it’s so warm outside

Lying here prone
Let me go home
Track Name: Simple and Cleen
It’s a new rack
That throws everything off
It seems so hard
When this couch is so soft

The return always makes the TV smoke
The first one’s classic, the sequels a joke

I know everything must go and disappear
Oh why do these things get old, can’t they just stay here

And I know
Things you never ever seen
I can tell you
Right now it’s not simple or clean

The coffee tables used to be more square
And every program’s about the grizzly bear

I know everything must go and disappear
Oh why do these things get old, can’t they just stay here
Track Name: Snakes
A twist I must have missed
This plot’s ridiculous
No ones who they say they are
So I’ll stay in VR

Slip and slide
Ive got no place to hide
I slither right on by
Im just a snake inside

Got lost in a sea of struts
Vampires are a bit too much
Crawling through the halls
Do you hear me knocking on the walls?

Slip and slide
Ive got no place to hide
I slither right on by
Im just a snake inside

Saved all my rations
But I still mail the fission
Track Name: Tunic
Swept off the bridge by razor blade winds
And plummeting towards the sea
A middle-eastern tunic caught on the edge
Now I gotta make the leap

A ticking clock the tunic tears
Breath catches in my throat
The waves beneath are concrete
I stare, and count the boats

Swept off the bridge by razor blade winds
And plummeting towards the sea
A middle-eastern tunic caught on the edge
Now I gotta make the leap

Seagulls laughed and they always will
But do they have to circle overhead
Fabric thin and panicking
I’m hanging by a thread

I’m hanging by a thread
Above the river bed
I’m hanging by a thread

Swept off the bridge by razor blade winds
And plummeting towards the sea
A middle-eastern tunic caught on the edge
Now I gotta make the leap
Track Name: Everyday Signs
I asked you to go with me
To see a show by the sea

Tomorrow is a calling card
And everything is on my cell phone
Fuzzy guitar you can’t get into
In a strange park

An unknown band had taken the stage
What happened to them we’ll never know

A miniscule chord change
In an unsleeping city
The daily special of fuzz guitar
Slowly goes to a minor

Every day, every night, right now
In the words that come to mind
I’ll find out what you meant just by
Using everyday signs
