  • LTD 12-Inch Vinyl (2nd Pressing)
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Second Pressing of the record. Comes with an insert. These were printed before Chris Clavin was outed for abuse and sexual assault; as such, they have all the old packaging featuring Plan-It-X. We're sorry about that. For more info: www.facebook.com/ramshackleglory/posts/1547150671995052

    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Hey all! This is the very end of the Live the Dream 2nd pressing. There will never be a third pressing. The records in these are all fine, the sleeves have bent corners or whatnot, so I'm listing them for cheap.

about

This song is about realizing that getting high all the time has become a serious problem. At the time, I didn't know what to do about it yet, but I was becoming willing to take action. This was the last song released for an old band, Wingnut Dishwashers Union. It was one of the last songs I wrote before I got sober. It was too key for the narrative of the album not to use it.

lyrics

i want freedom, not a boss that comes in a forty ounce bottle of anything or taped scotch paper. i eat meat and drive trucks and shoot guns and don’t trust in the federal government to solve our problems. you might think i’m joking, but i’m not a republican. call me when your president pulls out of afghanistan, because that’s the day i’ll get a cell phone number, and you can call and leave a message on voice mail that day. (SINCE WRITING THIS SONG I HAVE GOTTEN A CELL PHONE. SOMEHOW THE OCCUPATION OF AFGHANISTAN CONTINUES.) i fell asleep smoking so i’d wake up on fire, because that might get me out of bed for a while and back into battle with the things that i breathe, and the holes in my arms, and the way that i think. and if freedom is doing what i want, well that means i gotta know what is, not just what it isn’t. so i’ll dig up the dirt and i’ll throw down some seeds, because the world needs more spinach, not more motherfuckers like me. motherfuckers like me! (ohohohoh, etc.)
