    Hey, hipsters, I'm talking to you! In case you somehow have heard of this band by not knowing the band themselves, you can buy a lil CD here that looks like a vinyl record inside a shitty white sleeve like a good ole vinyl record would come back in the day. Handwritten shit on the back like track listing, credits, etc. They're cheap here but cheaper if you know us cuz then we ain't gotta ship shit. Hope you like the album.

about

Hailing from the innards of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, Seymour Butts' debut album is a brand-spanking new collection of 10 punk'd out songs to rock your socks off, guaranteed. Jacob Keplinger brings hooks that are undeniably catchy ("From A Distance, She's Not That Bad", "Give It A Day"), while bassist Justin Siegel brings home the bacon with filthy bass lines that are destined to make your ears beg for mercy ("I Fell In Love", "God's Not Real, But My Student Loans Are"). It all comes together with dirty production and stupid lyrics ("Kathy", "Hungover") that bring the whole album in for a home run.

Track Name: From A Distance, She's Not That Bad
When you think about the ocean
Who do you think about
Is it the same person that we were just singing about

She’s kinda big and kinda ugly but we both know
If you back up far enough it goes to show

From a distance, she’s not that bad
If we could only get closer
Without her looking bolder
From a distance, she’s kinda rad
Too bad she is such a bitchface to me
I hope I don’t see her again

When I talk to all her friends she seems kinda cool
Till you realize that she overflowed her dad’s swimming pool
And I know it’s kinda rude to sing about, but I was bored
That’s why we’re here anyway
That fucking whore

From a distance, she’s not that bad
If we could only get closer
Without her looking bolder
From a distance, she’s kinda rad
Too bad she is such a bitchface to me
I hope I don’t see her again

When you think about the ocean
Who do you think about
Is it the same person that we were just singing about

From a distance, she’s not that bad
If we could only get closer
Without her looking bolder
From a distance, she’s kinda rad
Too bad she is such a bitchface to me
I hope I don’t see her again
Track Name: God's Not Real, But My Student Loans Are
God’s not real but my student loans are
I wish I could pay them off
I just want to be a rockstar
Instead of loans I'd just jack off
(Hey!)
(Hey!)

Hey, too bad I'm stuck in school anyway
Maybe I'll just decide to run away
Track Name: The Good Times Are Killing Me
Holy cow my life has changed
I'm on the brink of going insane
I'm 18 hours south of home
But I've still got the same old iPhone

The good times are killing me
But not as much as history
Is killing my GPA

So if you want a good time
Call me up at 9 tonight
I'll show you the worth of being alive

Every night's a new sensation
Every day I'm losing patience
Everybody's on their phone
And I'm over here all alone
No one cares and no one believes
No one's ever asking me
Everybody fails to see that
the good times are killing me

The past four years were blue and white
So I guess the next four should be alright
If these new dreams and fantasies
Turned into reality
The friends I've lost and the ones I've found
Could put me six feet in the ground but
I guess that's fine by me

So if you want a good time
Call me up at 9 tonight
I'll show you the worth of being alive

So here we are just making sense
Of what the hell has happened since
I came along and brought this name
These songs started to change the game
We weren’t looking for much right now
But somewhere, somebody somehow
Just thought we had enough
Track Name: Hey Kid, You're A Star
Hey kid, you’re a star
But not an all star
Just a shitty follow-up
Hey kid, you won’t get far
Cuz you’re no all star
You’re just a star

I know how it feels to get left behind
By everyone you love
It sucks

And I know what it takes to find
Everything you know
Kid, listen up

Hey kid, you’re a star
But not an all star
Just a shitty follow-up
Hey kid, you won’t get far
Cuz you’re no all star
You’re just a star

I was told that all my life
That I'd never be a good one
That maybe I was just the first one

I said fuck it
It’s my life
Imma do what I can
Stick it to the man

Hey kid, you’re a star
But not an all star
Just a shitty follow-up
Hey kid, you won’t get far
Cuz you’re no all star
You’re just a star
Track Name: I Don't Hate You, But You're Pretty Damn Close
You’re so dumb
It hurts me
I can’t even think about what you’ve said before
Cuz I feel like every time you speak I lose IQ points
Whatever

You’re just that
Everything I hate is in you
But I don’t hate you
It’s pretty damn close, remember that

You are always on
You always have the last thing to say
But buddy, listen up
You look pretty fucking stupid

Every time you’re riding around on your bike
Screaming heavy metal
It sucks
But hey, I don’t hate you
It’s pretty damn close remember that

Why are you still talking?
Why are you still breathing?
Don’t you make me hit you now
Hey pal
I hated rooming with you at orientation
Orientation

I don't hate you but it's pretty fucking close, remember that
Track Name: Kathy
Kathy
I see you sitting there at the desk all night
And Kathy
You’re checking people out but they never stay till light
And Kathy
I wish you knew that I am the one who wants to stay
And talk to you
And get to know you all day

Why do you try to kick me out at 2 am every day
Why do you try to let me go
I’m the one, I'm the one

Oh, Kathy

Kathy
I can see you running away
I don’t know why you stay
It makes me sick at night
Kathy
I wanna be there, too
I wanna live with you
In that café

Why do you try to kick me out at 2 am every day
Why do you try to let me go
I’m the one, I’m the one
Oh, Kathy
Track Name: Give It A Day
How many days did you spend with me?
Not enough for you to hate your life
And how many days since you’ve left me
Not enough for me to go and cry

Cuz you are all that you could get
You’re all you talk about to them
You are everything to you

How long till you’ve found someone new?
I say give it a day, give it a day
How long till you’re sleeping with someone new?
I say give it a day, give it a day

I wish you had a friend that you were close to
Cuz you and I know they are just for now
Then they’ll get sick of hearing about me too
And you will be alone another night

Cuz you are all that you could get
You’re all you talk about to them
You are everything to you

How long till you’ve found someone new?
I say give it a day, give it a day
How long till you’re sleeping with someone new?
I say give it a day, give it a day
Track Name: I Fell In Love
I fell in love with a lesbian girl
She had my heart but she took my world
And I know what she thinks of me
When she hears this song it won’t increase

That bitch is 5’4”
And she is some whore
For tryna take me away from my baby’s heart
And she’s a letdown
Cuz she is all around
A thing, summer fling, she can’t take us apart

I fell in love with a lesbian girl
She had my heart but she took my world
And I know what she thinks of me
When she hears this song it won’t increase

That bitch had short hair
And she was all there
But I couldn’t be her man cuz she wanted a girl
And if she wanted my dick
Then she would’ve asked it
But I woulda said no cuz I got somebody’s world

I fell in love with a lesbian girl
She had my heart but she took my world
And I know what she thinks of me
When she hears this song it won’t increase
Track Name: When I Get Paid
When I get paid
I’ll make it up to you my babe
When I walk your way
I’ll buy you oceans and estates
And I'll let you say
That you know everything’s okay
But I’ll stick to picking flowers until I get paid

I know it’s not much but I need you to know that I need you
And I can’t help singing this douchey song in front of you
But when I get home you’ll finally see just what I mean
When I get home you’ll see finally get paid

When I get paid
I’ll make it up to you my babe
When I walk your way
I’ll buy you oceans and estates
And I'll let you say
That you know everything’s okay
But I'll stick to picking flowers until I get paid

Sitting here with Mr. J making punk rock records in my dorm
And I know it’s weird I know it ain’t the social norm
But I can get used to dorm life anyway
Cuz fuck a studio I'll do it my way

When I get paid
I’ll make it up to you my babe
When I walk your way
I’ll buy you oceans and estates
And I'll let you say
That you know everything’s okay
But I'll stick to picking flowers until I get paid
Track Name: Hungover (But I Don't Drink)
Saturday night has come and passed
But this torture seems to always last
Watching tv on the couch
Keeping the bucket right next to you
If hell exists I think I've found it
Here on earth, but I'm bored so I pound it
Waiting for this day to be over
Cause I'm hungover

But I don’t drink
I just thought It’d be funny to write a song about being drunk
And I don’t think
But I thought it’d be funny to make fun of the ones
That get drunk
Every morning, every evening every chance while I am sober
Everybody else is hungover

Time seems to stop
Your body refuses
To eat anything and your on short fuses
Like a cannon, it's a gross projectile
Is this a punishment after a trial
You say you won't go out anymore
But you know next weekend you'll walk out the door
Have a good time with all of your friends
And then you'll be back doing this all over again

And I don’t drink
But I thought It’d be funny to write a song about being drunk
And I don’t think
But I thought it’d be funny to make fun of the one
That get drunk
Every morning, every evening every chance while I am sober
Everybody else is hungover
