UNQUESTIONABLY I-95



" Takes the music in a roaring, modern alternapop direction. Those who luxuriate in the music of bands like Material Issue, Cheap Trick, Flashcubes, Matthew Sweet et. al. will dig this one. And again, it’s the little things: the tune is solid enough even before an inspired middle eight takes it into the stratosphere. " -- Bill Kopp, Musoscribe, contributing editor at Goldmine: The Collectors Record and CD Marketplace, and Jazz & Prog Editor at BLURT magazine.

Lyrics

Hey when did you get back in town?
I thought my friends were joking
Was it the money that ran out again?
Or did your ego need some stroking?

I used to think that you were so cool
Someone who couldn’t lose
Until you turned into a tool
That anyone could use

Don't I know who you think you were?
Don't I know who you thought you were?
Don't I know—you?

It's so like you to come so far
Expecting me to wait
Leaning on your youthful charm that's
Past its expiration date

Everyone burning up my phone
Keeping me up to speed
Afraid you're on the other end
A call I didn't need

Don't I know who you think you were?
Don't I know who you thought you were?
Don't I know—you?

Three friends meet on a quiet street
One big secret two can’t keep

It’s quite impressive to me, your casual cruelty
I hope she means as much to you as she once meant to me

Sometimes I take the long way home
Walking down streets where we once met
Thinking someday I that might feel
Some sadness or regret

It hasn’t happened yet, and so
I guess it never will
Please just go home, leave me alone, and
Choke on that bitter pill

Don't I know who you think you were?
Don't I know who you thought you were?
Don't I know—you?
