about

Debut 7'' from DeKalb's sloppy ass grunge punk heroes, The Stockyards. Limited to a run of 300.

"The Stockyards' music reminds me of blackened sludge slowly dripping down a drainpipe. The sound is thick, viscous and dirty." -The Northern Star

This is DP000

Track Name: Wasted in DeKalb
Well I'm wasted wasted wasted in DeKalb
Yeah I'm wasted wasted wasted in DeKalb

Well I'm all fucked up from 40s and such
I drank all the whiskey I can take
Now I'm on the street and the police are after me
But I cannot run away

Cuz I'm wasted wasted wasted in DeKalb
Yeah I'm wasted wasted wasted in DeKalb

Now I can't fucking walk cuz I'm spinning like a top
And I'm out of my fucking mind
I left the punk show for a cement pillow
And I'm kissing the streetlights good night

Cuz I'm wasted wasted wasted in DeKalb
Yeah I'm wasted wasted wasted in DeKalb

Well I'm all fucked up from 40s and such
I drank all the whiskey I can take
Now I'm on the street and the police are after me
But I cannot run away

Cuz I'm wasted
Track Name: Spray Paint Smiley Faces
Free speech afforded to the dumb
advice given to the deaf
they try to keep you mute
rob you of your life's breath

Everywhere I look
spray paint smiley faces

Keep you calm in your cubicle
pinning you as a minor threat
piss wages and no respect
every day your soul's in debt

Everywhere I look
spray paint smiley faces

Tear down the 9 to 5
tell the cunts where to go, to hell
random acts of anarchy
played with a joker's heart

Everywhere I look
spray paint smiley faces
Track Name: No Coast
You can't surf in the garage
we can't surf outright
your in the land of the sun
and we're all out of shape

This is no coast
this is nowhere

We can't get the time of day
from you pretty, you pretty folk
this is the land of cheap beer
and you're just a sober joke

This is no coast
this is nowhere

You can dance like a fuck
work on your perfect tan
but I prefer my women pale and real
while you follow the fratboy plan

This is no coast
this is nowhere
Track Name: Treading Water
Hold your breath, don't panic
Hold your breath, don't panic
We all suffer the same
Trapped in their little games
1,000 thoughts and TV stations
All their traps and complications

How long can I survive?
How long can I survive?

Hold your breath, go to work
Hold your breath, go to work
Never mind the rising tide
We'll flail till we die
We're trapped by dead standards
We live by dead standards

How long can I survive?
How long can I survive?

Treading water, don't panic
Track Name: Punx is Dead
Think you're punk cuz you spike your hair?
Think you're punk cuz of the uniform you wear?
Every stud is a medal, every patch is a badge
Join the rest of the pretentious douche bags

You're so punk but no one cares

Judge me according to what you do
Call me a poseur but you think I'm cool
Call me a faggot but claim to support gays
Your an elitist in a crowd of misfits

You're so punk but no one cares

Who cares about punk when it's just about doing your hair?
Who cares about punk when it's just sitting around drinking beer?
We could be so much better if we just stopped judging each other

Yeah I got chucks just like you
and I got creepers like you too
yeah I got Doc Marten's just like yours
Cuz I'm a punk rocker just like you

You're so punk but no one cares
Punx is dead
Track Name: Goons of DeKalb
Empty halls empty homes
will they ever find the bones
all the good has lost the fight
what the hell gives them the right
their the ones in control
who emptied you of your homes
their the ones with the gall
to board you up in your walls

where do they come from?
who benefits from all these empty homes?
who benefits from all these walled up bones?
