about

Adrian Aardvark Plattsburgh, New York

Punks, poets, freaks and classically trained musicians make psychedelic grunge folk art together.

Years of struggling with distractions like drugs/alcohol, unrequited love, and overwhelming thoughts of life being so unbelievably complex (how is it even possible that life even happens at all?) there is joy once again while still staying true blue.

Track Name: Starting Too Fast, Again
whoa! we’re starting too fast, again
we’re starting too fast, again you guys
let's take our time and ease on in
make this worth while, say “hello” to mom

thank you for birthing me mother
i was so eager for this world i shot on out
baby don’t cry, I’ll sing you a lullaby
make this worth while, say “hello” to mom

Oh...
be ready, be prepared, be unawares and you’ll be under stairs
so...
be ready, be prepared, be sexual with clean sexy underwears
Track Name: We Shared Our Fat Parts Together
rock to the left, rock it to the right
rock every night

we shared our fat parts together
under the blue chlorine water
it was private and quite intimate
our wrinkled toes touching the pools cement
locked our eyes into our souls
explored our weakness and fat rolls,
I like her and she likes me
we’re gonna grow old and live by the sea

she loves me when i am sober, she loves me when I am drunk
i like her even when she smells like a skunk
we talk about movies and books we read
we go out dancing but baby she takes lead
i don’t smoke but she loves her cloves
I like it cuz it stays in my clothes
we rock to left and we rock to the right
rock so much we rock every night

so we moved to the caribbean
hover in the water like a space station
get a job as a tour diver to pay the bills
live on the beach with the crabs and seagulls
Track Name: I Can Hardly Believe That You Want Me
in the morning...

i am gonna take over mars, i am gonna be a better man
i am gonna show you the best of this world, while holding your hand
it might not mean something now, but it’ll mean something later
after dinner i’ll get the bill, and you can tip the waiter

can’t walk right up to you, and say you’re lovely (“you’re lovely”)
so i’ll wander this club, and hope you’ll walk up to me (“to me”)
get no sense of this dance floor, fall into your eyes (“or your lies”)
take me home tonight, and i’ll move down between your thighs

i can hardly believe that you want me in your bed
i can hardly believe that you want me to know you there
i can hardly believe that you want me in the morning
i can hardly believe that you want me here at all

my friends say you’re too good, for the likes of me
but few friends i got, and only a few friends i need
so i’ll take you out, to where you want to go
i’ll do the things you like, and put on a private show

we get drunk in public restrooms, and run through public parks
after dark we swim in water holes, and then try to find our clothes
lost our bikes and, our frisbee in the woods
so we walk on home, between raindrops on our tip toes

i can hardly believe that you want me in your bed
i can hardly believe that you want me to know you there
i can hardly believe that you want me in the morning
i can hardly believe that you want me here at all

it takes time getting use to it but i am getting use to it, alright
Track Name: Betsy Ross
out of seventeen brothers and sisters you are the one we all know
oh, elizabeth griscom you’re fourth-generation american born in the snow
you fell in love with john ross and eloped across the delaware
the both of you ran off and started your own upholstery business
war came and took the life of John when you were twenty four
later that year you met with the committee of three
the american symbol, our flag, you worked on like a busy bee
you died one hundred and forty nine years before i was born

BETSY ROSS YOU ARE MY HOT SAUCE!!! HA! HAAHAA!!

i have your art hanging above my bedroom door
one day i will burn it when it falls down and touches my floor
the craftsmanship is heavenly, and i want to touch your soft hands
you captured the energy and pride for these rebellious lands
who else would of made thirteen stripes for the original colonies?
and your creativity you’ll never know that it surprises me
i would travel back in time just to join your sewing circle
but i’ve got a few dates lined up and i am sure your dance card is full

BETSY ROSS YOU ARE MY HOT SAUCE!!! HA! HAAHAA!!
Track Name: Dancing in the Pumpkin Ball
so you’re already under ground and gone
i still got a whole life to get living on
but i am just d-d-d-dieing to meet you
and i am c-c-c-coughing with the flu

i guess i’ll meet you sooner then later...

will you be my chaperon at the pumpkin ball
i need a good chaperon because she’s got it all

my heart’s about to burst and liquor i do thirst cuz i am...

dancing at the pumpkin ball
dancing at the pumpkin ball with he

will you be my chaperon at the pumpkin ball
i need a good chaperon because she’s got it all

my heart’s about to burst and liquor i do thirst cuz i am...

dancing at the pumpkin ball
dancing at the pumpkin ball with her
Track Name: I Thought Everything Was Free
i thought everything was free, until i found myself in jail
Track Name: Softly Saying
softly saying “ i love you”
oh, say “dontcha care”

can you whisper it in my ear
can i call you baby or my dear
can i be happy with my tear
can i think of you when i finish my beer
Track Name: Walk Through Water
gettin’ a little too stressed out, stressed out
i am gettin’ a little over whelmed
so can’t we all just chill out
or dive off this end of the world?

ships are drowning and who of thought i’d be a sailor, like you?
divers are dived down under and who’d a thought i’d die, like you?

all fulled up of hearts and rainbows
paid my debts and loans so, this rounds on me, you guys
clap your hands and touch your toes
did you ever think that i was never right for anyone?

ships are drowning and who of thought i’d be a sailor, like you?
divers are dived down under and who’d a thought i’d die, like you?

fill my glass of water half full cuz i see clear skies ahead
fill my glass of water half empty cuz i think i am dead

but if i am already dead i guess that means i don’t need to be drinking my eight daily glasses of water no more...

he’s walking through water
and she’s talking like an otter
and there’s bears but they don’t care cuz
they’re busy eating at the county fair
Track Name: Sabertooth Tigers
feet under me running as fast as they can
suddenly my ears hear the hum moving closer
jump into this pirate ship and escape the bees
feel awful when you hear your best friend trip
fall down and gets stung and screams

sometimes I wish I had sabertooth tigers to come
rescue me, care for me, set me free
sometimes I wish I was a cub in the pack
and everyone knew my name

I want to glow-in-the-dark
or be a hologram
I want to be the shame
of cheap marketing scam

sometimes I wish I had sabertooth tigers to come
rescue me, care for me, set me free
sometimes I’d wish I was a cub in the pack
and everyone knew my name
Track Name: Alone
Hey there sailor, you got a package for me, for me, to see
Hey there mister, you got a seltzer for me, for me, for free

And you’ve learned a hard lesson
That there’s no reason
To cut yourself
Out of this world

But I am alone
I am a bag of bones
I am alone, alone
We know, we can hear you moan

So shut up, get dressed
Getting moving you’ve had your rest (rest rest)
Get out, be your anti-drug
Get out! Be you sexy thug

All this time I was alone
All this time and I am still a bag of bones
But I am learning to change my tone
And I feel a whole lot better with all this coke I’ve blown
Blow…..

Oh, why can’t it snow in the summer time that’d be just fine
I’d make a snow cone for you and a big one that’s mine
We’d ski to the beach and catch a tan with a snowman
But it’ll only get cold when I fan your sexy can

Well can do
Track Name: She'll Love It
i’ll wine and dine her
i’ll start her fire
and you know she’ll love it
(repeated 4 times)

she’ll love it! (woo!) she’ll love it! (woo!)
she’ll love it! (yeah yeah yeah yeah!)
(repeat 2 times)
Track Name: Grocery Graves
Busy digging graves or
Throwing groceries into bags
Still thinking about how soft your hands were
Well there’s either soil under your nails
Or sticky juices and milk on your finger tips
Weather gets cold and our skin dries out
Loosing communication with your friends can be tough
But the money’s flowing and the drinks are filling
But I’d rather be kissing your soft lips

Digging holes and making crypts
Planning outings and friendly trips
If you bag too many groceries that bag’ll surely rip
And that fella won’t give you another tip
That fella won’t give you another tip

I can’t wait for the summer time
We’ll all go on one big road trip
Exchanging pictures of our adventures
Sure looks like good times are everywhere
Yeah I might not be next to you but at least
I am not somewhere under ground
We’ll meet at an airport
Hug in unison with all those other reunions there

Digging holes and making crypts
Planning outings and friendly trips
If you bag too many groceries that bag’ll surely rip
And that fella won’t give you another tip, no
That fella won’t give you another tip
Track Name: Rescue Me
rescue me, before i die
save my soul, and put in a jar for a rainy day
i am white as a ghost, my years flash by and i am good as gone
i never thought, that i’d die this way

tell me it ain’t bad, the ambulance is almost here
i am just broken, something doctors can easily repair
we’ve had good times, but my time seems to be up
but go into the light, i do not dare

someday i’ll wish you were me, so i could be getting rich off the dead
someday i’ll rise up again, i’ll hunt you down and bite into your head

you will all be in my zombie army!
(i’ll eat your brains)
you will all be in my zombie army!
(i’ll change your names)
you will all be in my zombie army!
(i’ll lick your gut stains)
you will all be in my zombie army!
(i’m changing lanes)

but we’ll all rapidly decompose when it rains
so i guess i suppose, just burn my remains
