about

You either love The Disabled's second album "Keep Their Day Jobs" or you hate what produced when the trio dived into their most experimental period. Self released under Mob Front Records, the band's grass roots record company, this thirteen song follow up to their debut album was engineered primarily by the band's drummer AS who had recently just begun to record. His equipment and recording abilities, at the time, were both novice forming the album's production which varies from the quaintly interesting to the exceedingly over worked. But regardless of recording quality, the album is in the tradition of all The Disabled's music focusing on heartfelt lyrics accompanied by powerful, energetic music though this practice may have been abandoned on the band's first satiric songs, Fletcher Puke has a Bass Coach and Sunshine Happy Rainbow. All in all "Keeping Their Day Jobs" is a interesting product from a band which always seemed pulled between several varying styles of music juxtaposing into a bridge between punk rock, indie and experimental.

Track Name: Haiku's For Jews
I always kinda liked you so I'm not going to laugh
But it's hard to listen to you make a myth
out of my past and I know it's hard to keep
Out of that easy lie about how much better
Things were for us once upon a time

But I remember sitting drinking
On a long, dead day
Thinking I don't give a damn
About what they say
Cause that is never gonna be
A place for me

And maybe I'm just bitter cause
I was never part of it but your scene
Looked kinda empty from the outside
In it was mostly punk rock coat racks
With 60 minute hair who were too
Fucking self involved to see the ending in the air
Track Name: Paris Hilton vs. A Bear
Somethings are best left unsaid
Most times I would rather not know
All these things we talked about
I will have no control

On your twenty-one
Twenty-one
Twenty-one
When it's all up to you

I wish I could steal a rocket ship
Go a million years into the future
Where they already have the antidote
And fly back home with your cure

On your twenty-one
Twenty-one
Twenty-one
When it's all up to you
Track Name: Fletcher Puke Has a Bass Coach
My girlfriend broke up with me (x)

We played this show in Green Bay,Wisconsin
I met this chick she was totally awesome
I took her out to Wendy's and then Taco Bell
Then we went back straight to the hotel

My girlfriend broke up with me (x)
Her name was Cindy

She use to date this total fucking douche bag
I guess he use to spend all of his money on her
And do whatever she wanted then she totally left him for me
Because I'm totally awesome. Yes I am. I'm totally awesome.
This band that opened up for us had this sweet-ass bass player
He had a bass coach. That bass coach taught him some sweet ass notes!
Track Name: Enola Straight
Standing in the corner waiting for
My marching orders sometimes I wonder
Why I bother getting up in the morning
But it's just another dirty job
A mile that needs traversing
Just another bridge I crossed that's
Calling out for burning singing

Where were you when I saved the world
Where were you when I got the girl and
Where were you when I figured out my life
Where were you when I took my turn
Where were you when I got burned
Where were you when I was running out time
And where were you

Now the working day is done
I get to wrestle with the devil
Bad decisions that I made keep
Coming back to bite in the ass
At the end of the day I just gotta laugh
Because I finally found the straw
That broke the demon's back singing
Track Name: Sunshine Happy Rainbow
Another Captain Crunch Morning
Gonna eat up that good stuff
Another Captain Crunch morning
And then the...anal sex

Met her at a bar thought she
Was a sure thing told her I loved her
And that she was super rad
Didn't really love her thought
She kinda looked fat didn't even like her
But I wanted to tap that ass

Don't live in the past
Let me put this up your ass
It'll only hurt the first time
It'll only hurt the first time
She said "I don't want it up there"
"Take that thing out of there"
"I Told you once, I won't tell you again!"
Track Name: There Is No I In Team But Several In Multi-Million Dollar Record Contract
She stood there and watch the building burn with a voice trapped in side
She was too scared to even try and be burned alive

You don't under stand and you don't care “what difference would it make”
You got the jacket and the spiky hair “what else can I say?”

There is something in those sullen eyes that reminds me we're in...
Paradise, Paradise,What difference would it make
Paradise, Paradise, What else can I say

You told me you would watch them drown with nothing they could do
Because if they had the chance they'd do the same to you

There something in those sullen eyes
Paradise, Paradise,What difference would it make
Paradise, Paradise, What else can I say
Track Name: Mexican't
It wasn't all that long ago
When I got drunk and you got stoned

We had had some swell times back in our prime
In 1999
When everything was brand new

But you were so hard on yourself
I swear you were set on self-destruct
And there was nothing I could do

This isn't what I wanted when I said i had to go
I wish you never had
Got so low

I wish you never got so low
I wish you never would have got so low

I hope you're not i to deep
I hope the ground still touching feet
If you find a better place to call home

I wish you never got so low
I wish you never would have got so low

I hope you find a better place to call
I wish you never would have got so low

I wish you weren't such a dirty hoe
I wish you never would have got so low.
Track Name: Electric Kitty
I can't believe those days
It seems like such a haze
Of cigarette smoke and alcohol
It was hard to leave it then
Now it's just idol wind
And you were there to catch my fall
I wasn't a dream or even what you need
But I promise to be it now

If you decide to stick around

I don't need to be So damn angry
To fend off, all these enemies
Now I finally Don't have to be the life of a the party
To know there is someone who cares for me
Oh how things have changed
And even you just has to be amazed

You decide to stick around

I don't care of the longevity of Kodak high fidelity
I don't need plastic memories bombarding all my walls
Let's through them all to the floor and tomorrow make one thousand more

If you decide to stick around
Track Name: Fuck This Country Shit I Need Some Techno
Do you remember when?
Do you remember when everything was so dark?
We were stealing then.
We were stealing then from anything with a spark

When the skies open up and the cloud roll away and I'm left with nothing to say
I will never return to my yesterdays

It gets so cold here.
So cold I fear I'll never be warm
It's different here
So different but who's to say what's right or wrong

When the skies open up and the cloud roll away and I'm left with so much to say
I will never forgive my yesterdays

We were free then
So free but still so angry
I had you and you had me
But it just wasn't what we need

When the skies open up and the cloud roll away and I'm not sure what to say
I will never regret to my yesterdays
Track Name: Pobodies Nerfect
Looking back now I guess I can't define
But we never thought we'd live see a better time
And looking back now I'll never know why
But I lived and left that world behind

Sometimes I feel like I left you to die
Like I let you down when I moved on with my life
And I remember better times
Back before you lost your mind
This is how it looks when our town dies

Looking through a bottle at another bloodshot day
Strange to think that drunk and unhappy
Would be the way you'd want me to stay
Guess you got your life
And it's fair to say that I got mine
That is how it looks when the past dies
