about

The Hotel Double Tragedy is constantly burning. You will be too with these new hits from the family! Simply listen to the album at a decent volume and watch your life fall apart. We were thinking of releasing this album under the pretense that it was found under the bed of a dead priest who was the grandfather of a couple of members of the Vaselines, but we thought better of it. You deserve the TRUTH! You deserve magic in POP ATTITUDE! You deserve ONE ANCIENT JANGLE! In ten seconds FLAT! You deserve HOTEL DOUBLE TRAGEDY! Get one today for yourself or for someone you care about.

Track Name: at the hotel double tragedy (take one)
i was born in the hotel double tragedy
the dust is thick and it stains the lips
it's so bad for me

i can see with my own two eyes
what you do to me

at the hotel double tragedy
Track Name: 02. don't tread on the museums of your youth
you opened your eyes and you killed museum of fallen stars
you killed it for fun, you killed for fun with your eyes
you should've known that you had such sad eyes

and when you killed that museum
and laughed in the shadows with your friend the wolf
well you threw back some beers
you toasted the devil himself
he should've known that you can't see to well.

and when you threw back your hands
and you covered your face with a carousel
well it was too dark to tell
but i figured you looked like a fool
you should've known that you can't fool yourself

and when i saw you again
you were in a museum of pornography
you looked in my eyes
you told me your hands were so raw
i should've know you were above the law

you opened you mouth
and you killed a museum of innocence
there were bras on the floor
there were jock-straps behind every door
i think we all know what you're looking for

and when you killed that museum
and you swallowed your weight in regret
my suspicions where proved
by the hoof-prints found outside your door
i think we all know what he put them for

and when you threw back your head
and you swallowed a hogshead of tooth decay
well you couldn't be swayed
your resolve left us all so amazed
we all knew that it would never fade

and when i saw you again
you were in a museum of fallen leaves
well it was quite the museum
it was the finest museum i could find
you should've seen the way the crowd went wild

well i cried and i cried all night
till the little birds go oooooo they go ooooo

why'd you lie?
tell me why'd you have to lie to me like that?
don't you know it makes me cry baby
and i stay up all night
and i never get no sleep
till the little birds go ooooooo they go ooooo

well i sold my soul for a cigarette
and i want it back but i always forget
and i go oooooo and i always go ooooooo

and i sold my eyes for a peice of roast beef
i want em back but i can not see
i feel so dumb, i feel such a fool
i got nothin in my head but paper and glue
and i go oooooo and i go ooooooo
Track Name: 03. tiny children in our hearts
you're got buildings
i've got buildings
we've got burning buildings in our hearts

you've got children
10 bright childern
we've got tiny children in our hearts

when you covered me up completely
with a peice of dust
that you fold so neatly
underneath my skin

and you curled up completely
with your little head
tucked beneath me
and you told me what to say

i'm only lookin for some secrets
that's why i'm covered with dew
there's not much room behind this mirror
but i'll make some room for you

i only wanted to just see him
and now i know you do too
we're both just lookin to get our feet wet
it's some popular dew

you've got rivers
i've got rivers
we've got ice cold rivers in our hearts

when you covered me up completely
with a piece of dark that you held so neatly
in between your jaws
Track Name: 04. the snow will make fat men of us all
you were feeling up the glare
it was getting everywhere
stuck in teeth and eyebrow hair

you were headed to the zoo
shootin zebras two by two
wearin someone else's do

the snow will make fat men of us all
Track Name: 05. how i laughed my way to an early grave
doin drugs in the morning in the cemetery grass
they found us mangled and covered in dew
there was nothing left but our laughs

we crowded around some headphones
that we found beside a grave
we put them up to our ears
and we listened to dead people bath
Track Name: 06. junk pop
i got a ticket but i don't know what i'm doin with my life
gonna ride on a whale into the soda pop night
because my whole life's full of atomic gloom
chewin candy balls and cheeseburgers too

gimme gimme junk pop

gimme gimme junk pop

cause i wanna be free
gimme some cash
and i'll cover myself with wings

Track Name: 07. no more smoking pot in the bathroom
well my mom comes home bout a quarter past three
takes one look at me sees i'm stoned as can be
takes a whiff of the air, she falls off her high heels
and grabs hold of my hair and she says
no more smokin pot in the bathroom

well my dad comes home bout a quarter past twelve
he says to himself huh and well well well
i see my own grown son has been smokin on the herb
or that's one hell of a weird-ass smellin terd
and he says no more smokin pot in the bathroom

well my little brother comes home from dare
he says what's that wonderful smell that fills the air
well my brother bob i must declare there's this little secret
that i've been meanin to share and we were
smokin pot in the bathroom
Track Name: 08. fireflies make out of dust (take one)
i wanted to match your glow with an apple that i taught regret
but you smashed that fruit and you spat on my shoes
and you drew and airplane flying through my head
i might as well be dead
let those fireflies chew off my legs
cause i don't wanna ever dance no more

i wanted to make you swoon with a lightbulb that i taught to fly
but you took that bulb and you chewed it to a pulp
and you spat out fifty full grown fireflies
but it was all a lie
all those fireflies were made out of dust
and i don't wanna watch them glow no more

i wanted to make you cry with a cowboy that i taught restraint
but you snapped him in two and you buttered his boots
and you threw him out into the pouring rain
well it really ruined my day
i had to glue him back together again
and i don't think he'll ever dance no more
Track Name: 09. at the hotel double tragedy (take three)
let’s all go to a place i know
the hotel double tragedy

it’s a famous hotel where the ghosts all go
the hotel double tragedy

the lights are low let your pulse beat slow
the hotel double tragedy

if you get out alive then the stay is free
the hotel double tragedy

but you’ll lose track of time and the days will seems like weeks
the hotel double tragedy

you will meld with the light into a brand new tragedy
the hotel double tragedy
Track Name: 10. we used to be such good friends
well you live off a trumpet that you polish with blood
but you don't even like it and you only played it once
we used to be such good friends

you made fun of lovers and you made fun of dice
you made fun of me but you only did it twice
we used to be such good friends

you carry your poison like a samurai blade
you're in love with that poison you'll carry it to your grave
we used to be such good friends

you drink like a tiger in a suicide pact
if you wanna live forever you better clean up your act
we used to be such good friends
