lyrics

I won’t be unrealistic
But I wish I were more prolific
How are you so optimistic?
Maybe I’m just much too passive
I cannot be more aggressive
That just strikes me as offensive

Lost desire to seek your praise
Always misconstrued
I desire not to impress you
You call all my failures vice
Take credit for my pursuits
I desire not to impress you

I can’t sell my own success
Don’t see talk as virtue
I desire not to impress you
We know nonsense charms the masses
How does no one see through?
I desire not to impress you

Look. Look at me.
Look. Look at me.

Cheering your own victories
Presumptions become truth
Still desire not to impress, you
I will learn to shout out
All the good things that I do
Still desire not to impress, you

Look. Look at me.
Look. Look at me.

about

The Mauls Washington, D.C.

It began on a cold night in December. Mike got a speeding ticket. Parking was easy. Songs were tight and punkish. Pete cut a deal and we hit the studio. We relocated. New jams took shape. Kirk carved linoleum and everything fell into place.
