    Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    **PLEASE READ**

    We released this split with the help and artistic contributions of Chris Clavin, who was outed in 2017 for abuse and sexual assault. Consequently, we have cut all ties with PIX. When it comes to this split, it hasn't been clear whether the more accountable choice would be (a) remove all trace of this split from the internet, or (b) keep it around for transparency's sake. Then this fall, we received a bunch of CDs of that split that were never sold, which we could've destroyed. Instead, we're going to sell them for $10 and donate all income to a variety of public and anonymous survivor funds, such as www.gofundme.com/anonymous-survivor-fund. We hope that this can be a concrete form of mutual aid. If you have a suggestion of funds to donate toward, please send us a message -- note that Ramshackle Glory is an anarchist project which has typically avoided funding for-profit and non-profit organizations.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Shelter via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

lyrics

Here's to the knives in your pockets, the gun in your trunk, the years it's been since we weren't drunk. The neighbor shirtless, face-down on the lawn. Here's to the BB gun holes in the wall, the burnt tin foil in the hall. The weeks I've spent in bed since you were gone. Here's to shitting my pants downtown when the dealer's late, stumbling home to the feds at the front gate, sleeping behind the school when the landlord comes. Here's to being young. I hope I die before I get old. Hell, I just hope I die before the spoon gets cold. Sing it with me now, while we've still got our lungs: Here's to being young. Buy whipped cream on EBT and huff it in the dark with me. There's a bill on the table, but I don't recognize the name. We just came for a good time. It's listerine, but it tastes fine, or at least it did last time you got the shakes. Here's to running out the grocery store with a thirty pack, punching the cashier that wants it back, booking it out of there before the police come. Here's to being young. I hope I die before I get old. Hell, I just hope I die. Blah, blah, blah. Sing it with me now, convince me this is fun: Here's to being young.
