DEAR FRIENDS AND ROCKERS, PLEASE SUPPORT THE EXBATS AND THE TIRELESS PEOPLE OF BURGER BY ORDERING THIS BURGER RECORDS CASSETTE WHILE SUPPLIES LAST AT:

burgerrecords.11spot.com/the-exbats-a-guide-to-health-issues-affecting-rescue-hens.html

We recorded a bunch of our CLASSIC songs (and a few babies) at Midtown Island Studios in Tucson with the all around unimpeachable true believer rock & roller Matt Rendon of the super sonic Resonars. They came out pretty fresh so he alerted the guys at Burger to what we were doing out here in the gall dang middle of fkn nowhere. The stunning result: this cassette, which you will soon hold in your very hands!

...and of course you are encouraged to download the whole affair here, as per uzh, name yr $, starting at just $0!

are we, are we, are we friends yet
are we, are we, are we dead yet, dead yet, dead dead dead dead

i don't even know, don't tell me
i don't even know, don't tell me

did you, did you, did you find god yet
are you, are you, are you on top yet
are you, are you, are you alive yet, lie, lie, lie, lie

i don't even know, don't tell me
i don't even know, don't tell me
Track Name: Cracked Heart
why oh why can't love keep me together
right now it's keeping me apart

once upon a time i was above this
you put a fault right through my heart

there you go again you're like the devil
driving me past you, keeps me apart - cracked heart


i can pull my soul out of my body
putting it back again gets kinda hard

i was here for years just like an apple
red on a black tree, waiting to start

now here you come again, you're like the devil
driving me past you, keeps me apart - cracked heart


why oh why can't love keep me together
right now it's keeping me apart
Track Name: Hens and Roosters
one day i was just a yellow yolk
then i grew up bigger and i broke
all the walls around me yes i did
i was just to big i couldn't fit

after that the walls were all far gone
they said that my work had all been done
later realized that i was not
huge humungous big ass as i thought

now i wanna go back to my egg
now i wanna go back to my egg

this aint paranoia no its not
they are hens and roosters and i'm not
can't some body show me where's my egg
i am goddamn serious where's my egg

now i wanna go back to my egg
now i wanna go back to my egg
now i wanna go back to my egg
now i wanna go back to my egg
Track Name: Cuz I Love You
it's not a disaster
just the part after
a very bad day

so what if it burns out
sometimes with lights out
it's better that way

i'm not looking for the best way home
i don't even want to have a phone
i don't think i need to be alone
cuz i love you

its not that surprising
that i gave up trying
to hide it from you

now i am defenseless
a little bit senseless
you tell me it's cool

i used to be the one to come and go
look at now how all the corners glow
i don't think i need to be alone
cuz i love you


and if we ever, have a plan
i'm still a kid, hold my hand
or i'll be walking, across the sand
acting like i lost my name

i used to be the one to come and go
look at now how all the corners glow
i don't think i need to be alone
cuz i love you
i love you
i love you
i love you
i love you
Track Name: Mazimum of Happy
i hit my maximum of happy
now i want some more
where'm i gonna keep it
right there next to yours

i hit my maximum of happy
do you gotta call it love
just cuz you kiss me like the sunshine
and you wreck me like a flood

now i know what it means
not to know what i didn't know before
feels like i'd be somebody else
if i didn't get some more

we hit the maximum of happy
with a minimum of fear
it might last for a minute
it might last a bunch of years

you hold my hand along the sidewalk
i hold your hand cuz it feels fine
if you wanna go get something
i'll be there everytime

now i know what it means
not to know what i didn't know before
feels like i'd be somebody else
if i didn't get some more
Track Name: SAF
the doctor says you're free to leave
you'll find your way home eventually
don't forget to get your telephone
you must not ever feel alone

and i feel the same way to
i feel the same as fuck

i only came to get what i need
my friends are crawling on their hands and knees
you got the cure, we got disease
so hand it over if you please

and i feel the same way to
i feel the same as fuck

late at night you sense a doubt
it feels shitty when one figures out
we only get what were allowed
were just a face inside a crowd

i feel the same
the same as fuck
Track Name: Monster
i'm gonna drive everywhere
let the oceans rise
i really don't care
i gotta find love
whatever i do
i gotta be what happens to you

call me a monster
i know what i want
and i'm still feeling what you forgot
i gotta find love
whatever i do
i gotta be what happens to you

call me a monster
i know what i want
if you don't help me i'll take what you got
i gotta find love
whatever i do
i gotta be what happens to you
Track Name: Everybody Loves My Mom
She watches sports on TV
She's got more friends than me
Oh yeah, everybody loves my mom

She's got more drugs than me
She gives them out for free
Oh yeah, everybody loves my mom

Am I the only one that thinks its wrong
Am I the type that just can't get along
Everybody loves my mom

She's in the pub by three
She always drinks her tea
Oh yeah, everybody loves my mom

She sings kar-e-o-kee
With Todd and MIke and Keith
Oh yeah, everybody loves my mom

Am I the only one that thinks its wrong
Am I the type that just can't get along
Everybody loves my mom

I'm sailing out to sea
You've seen the last of me
Oh yeah, everybody loves my mom

When electricity
strikes my family tree
Oh yeah, everybody will be gone

Am I the only one that thinks its wrong
Am I the type that just can't get along
Everybody loves my mom
Track Name: Hey Dummy
Hey Dummy
Do I gotta spell it out for you
Are you going with me
Are you going with me

Hey Dummy
I think there's something wrong with you
I know what your gonna do
whatever i tell you to

I hear you talking, talking talking, all the time
You guys are boys, don't know your mind

And whatcha whatcha whatcha taking so long
You only get, till the end of this song

Hey Dummy
Do I gotta spell it out for you
Are you gonna kiss me
Are you gonna kiss me

Hey Dummy
I think there's something wrong with you
You say that you're into me
But you aint talking to me

I hear you talking, talking talking, all the time
You guys are boys, don't know your mind

And whatcha whatcha whatcha taking so long
You only get, till the end of this song
Track Name: Girls Like These
Across the hall, there's girls like these
they got a social disease, and the ones like me
we get weak in the knees

And we got time, we got nothin but time
Always standin in line, just gimme a sign
We'll go do some crime

Whatcha gonna do, you gotta do it to me
Who you gonna be, you gotta be it for me

The judges gavel falls, for the girls like me
we got a social disease, we can never be free
like we're sposed to be

Whatcha gonna do, you gotta do it to me
Who you gonna be, you gotta be it for me

Tops, cops, robbers and me
You see how it's meant to be

Whatcha gonna do, you gotta do it to me
Who you gonna be, you gotta be it for me
Whatcha gonna do, you gotta do it to me
Who you gonna be, you gotta be it for me
Track Name: Dyin of You
It's not weak, to be weak in the knees
It's not hard, to say she's got a disease
And I really don't know, what she possibly sees
Baby she's dyin of you
Baby she's dyin of you

She woke up, on the beach again
She thought that, you were more like a friend
And there's only one way, this can possibly end
Baby she's dyin of you
Baby she's dyin of you

And I, I will see you turn blue
And I, will be there when you do
Standing over you

You can have anything that you see
But what you take, you don't really need
I think it's time, you should be setting her free
Baby she's dyin of you
Baby she's dyin of you

And I, I will see you turn blue
And I, will be there when you do
Standing over you
Track Name: Xena!
Xena!

I don't got words to fill this song
So you don't get to sing along
I don't say much so I can't be wrong

Who cares who says what's better than
There aint much I understand
I just do it again, do it again, do it again and again and again

Xena!

Too bad you're gone, you'd like this song
It aint too short, it aint too long
Take blame, write wrong, move on!

You fight, you fought, I think you thought
They'd change, they've not, you win, you lost
And you will do it again, do it again, do it again and again and again

Xena!
