  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    For you vinyl lovers out there - Saratoga on beautiful black 12" vinyl with a varied song sequence to better suit the "Side A" / "Side B" format.

    The album jacket, designed by FDR graphics guru Mike Virok, includes the David Appel photo of the band in the studio on the back and the Tris McCall photo of urban NJ on the cover. It's such a pleasure to see this design in a 12 x 12 format rather than the tiny compact disc - but the real allure here is the beautiful sound of this album on the vinyl. Also included in this order is the 11 x 11 insert / lyric sheet and the SF Beer Tour sticker (designed by freelance artist Jason Kochis).

lyrics

I can’t keep myself from the anger
My employment place full of rancor
We sit here like disgruntled bankers
Pulled down like we got weighted anchors
Attached to our legs
Stuck like pegs
In pegboard partitions

I just passed my car inspection
Me new auspicious direction
No flu no viral inspection
The day is new and it feels like perfection
New moonshine, rock steady
All wracked up but never ready

I rely on you,
I never lied to you,
I rely on you,
You can rely on me too

I can’t keep myself from the feeling
Or keep the room from its reeling
I hold on to you for my balance
I’m like the kid who spent his allowance
On baseball cards and gum
I’m just as dumb, as I was
When I was young

I just buried my gut reaction
I married my dissatisfaction
No service no reception
Just me and my new deception
No honeymoon, no travel
The door slams shut just like a gavel

I rely on you,
I never lied to you,
I rely on you,
You can rely on me too

I dropped just like a Catholic
The envelope into the basket
I rise up like a spirit
Am I the only one here who feels it
And I don’t know what’s wrong
It’s just a song that went on for too long
