Res Bay

from by Case Hop Tally



Humpy spawning in the sound today
Swims against the dawning current
Ends up on a dock with her head chopped off
Back of the line to be sold in a box
Humpy's getting out of Res Bay

Sink again in my bottomless boots
They call me Lucky For All My Hours
Pick em pack em sort em stack em
Hold your shit together
Can you count to 24?
Or learn how to manage?
I gotta get out of Res Bay

Case Hop Tally Ho! lost another pail,
Calculus clouds froze, might as well
Stay awake

The Northern Lights in fluorescent rows,
Punched in the Breeze where the shingles flow and
Anybody help.
Where did you go?

No, don't leave me to the tent!
Thinkin won't
Strap me up n box me down again, no.
Give a little prick and make a little pop
Run up Marathon and sleep on top
and out
I'm running out of Res Bay

[chorus 2x]
