Recorded at Pretty Good Studios. Mixed and mastered by Ananth Batni.

Special thanks to Andrew Wink for playing lead guitar on Goody Proctor and Rawk N' Rawl Dream, and for striking the spark that lights the pyre or the stake.

Track Name: I Saw Goody Proctor With The Devil
Saw her with the devil
A whispered word’s all it takes
A single wink can strike a spark
That lights the pyre or the stake

I’ve always known there’s something wrong with her
And now she can’t deny it
A sinner’s life
That’s why she never sleeps at night
Not like the pure of heart like you and I

Saw her with the devil
Just look at the soot on her dress
An innocent can walk through fire
Her scorched palms all but confessed

Now all of us are lily-white, as pure as snow
So throw all the stones you like
A sinner’s life
That’s why she never sleeps at night
Not like the pure of heart like you and I

I’ve always known there’s something wrong with her
And now she can’t deny it
A sinner’s life
That’s why they never sleep at night
Not like the pure of heart like you and I
Track Name: Our Rawk N' Rawl Dream
I’m staring at a can of sweetened condensed milk
thinking “where were you when I needed you most?”
Jackson Browne wrote a song about this.
But I’m quite not sure how it goes.
Nobody told me it’d be easy becoming a rock and roll star.
But I wouldn’t trade my rock and roll dream for all the rice pilaf in the world.
Nobody told me it’d be easy becoming a rock and roll star.
Nobody tells me a lot of things.
Someone told me that gargled prune juice is makeshift mouthwash.
Just kidding, they actually didn’t. That never happened.
Sometimes methinks myself a random word generator.
For the longest time, I put wheat germ in my yogurt.
Everybody tells me to follow my dream.
They say: “Pack your pantaloons and shoot for the stars.”
Jackson Pollock wrote a song about this.
But I’m not quite sure how it goes.
Track Name: Vampires (The Stalker Song)
I crawled in through your window to watch you while you sleep
I don't get why you don't like me and you think that I'm a creep
I spent time reading romance, and I think it's plain to see
If it's good enough for vampires, then it's good enough for me

I follow you around, I always know just where you are
I broke into your house and stole the engine from your car
It's just to keep you safe, but you just don't seem to agree
If it's good enough for vampires, then it's good enough for me

I said "We're going hiking," and dragged you to the woods
I ran away and left you, just like a boyfriend should
I even took my shirt off and jumped out of a tree
If it's good enough for vampires, then it's good enough for me

I crawled in through your window to watch you while you sleep
I'm being real romantic, but you think that I'm a creep
If there's nothing wrong with Edward, why's there something wrong with me
If it's good enough for vampires, then it's good enough for me
If it's good enough for vampires, then it's good enough for me
