Half of the zingle (zine + single) Sucker Punch


there’s a prerecorded message when i call the hotline
a woman with a sexy voice says i’ll be fine
you know i can believe it

i take a train go underground i find the office
fill out all the paperwork pay for the license
this here guarantees it

tensing up for the sucker punch

gentleman says well hello miss strawberry
i assume that he is addressing me
i know it when i see it

strangers are all people ones who don’t mean nothing
strangers say i love you but they’re always bluffing
gotta see it to believe it

all tensed up for the sucker punch

lying lying up until the day you left
i’ve been scrounging for my two cents ever since

all tensed up into a fist for the sucker punch


released December 5, 2015
