about

Staying true to their love of vinyl, Elaine Jr was recorded totally analog on 2" tape at Postal Recording in Indianapolis, under the guidance of co-producers Alex Kercheval and Tyler Watkins (Margot and the Nuclear So and So's). It’s as if, after receiving these gifts from the ether, it’s the band’s duty to respect and honor the music through care, attention and honesty.

Track Name: Guitarless Man
I think a lot of people have music in their heads
I hear them playing it in their big ‘ol beds
It’s hard to figure out an outlet for your head
It’s so much easier just being a fan

This one’s for you guitarless man

I think a lot of mothers want to help their kids
I think a lot of fathers think they already did

This one’s for you guitarless kid

I think a lot of people have music in their heads
I hear them playing it in their big ol beds
It’s hard to figure out an outlet for your head
It’s so much easier just being a fan

This one’s for you guitarless man
Track Name: I'm Your Man
I’m your man

There’s sunshine and daydreams and all of my troubles are gone
Yeah, there’s sunshine and daydreams and all of my worries are gone
A pretty little girl with a shiny white smile
Threw a diamond in her face to keep with the style
And she says to me, just over and over again
you are my man

And it feels good to know
that your love is for sure
And if you’re thinking of changing your plan
no baby I’m your man

There’s sunshine and daydreams and all of my troubles are gone
Yeah, there’s sunshine and daydreams and all of my worries are gone
A pretty little girl with a shiny white smile
threw a diamond in her face to keep with the style
And she says to me, just over and over again
you are my man

And it feels good to know
that your love is for sure
And if you’re thinking of changing your plan
no baby I’m your man
Track Name: Ticky Tocky
Ticky Tocky

The weight of the world coming down on me
I’ll just drink some coffee or sip your tea
I ain’t got a plan for the rest of my life
but I hope to end up at your place sometime
Where the ticky ticky tock of your clock
could rock my head
And the bricky bricky blocks of your walls
surround the bed
And in your kitchen girl I know I’d be well fed
And every little morning we’d wake them words would be said
Yeah its love

I’ll ring your finger
We’ll have us a kid
Raise him up right and do it again
We’ll clear the nest
We did our best
Let's sip some tea and kick back and rest

Because you know one day I’ll rot away
And in the ground with me you’ll lay
Our toes be singing songs with the bells that they play
They’ll have to look back at our lives and say that
the ticky ticky tock of the clock
Man it rocked our heads
And the bricky bricky blocks of the walls
surround our bed
And in that kitchen girl you know we were all well fed
And every little morning we woke them words were said
Yeah it’s love
Track Name: If You Don't Love Her
If You Don't Love Her

If you don’t love her, then you just don’t love her
But if you love her, you better get home

You’re drinkin beer so far away from here
that no one can find your restless soul
You’re screaming loud but you sure ain’t proud
You can’t even look at yourself

If you don’t love her, then you just don’t love her
But if you love her, you better get home

She’s one in a billion, but you’re just a killin
All the sweet in her tea
She’s just a ball, you could have it all
You’re not sure that you want her on your team

If you don’t love her, then you just don’t love her
But if you love her, you better get home
Track Name: Dead Grinnin'
Dead Grinnin'

If you’re feeling bad my friend
don’t look down at your chin
look up at the sky and give it a grin

And if the church comes looking for you
and you’re not sure you’ll fit in
just look at them and give them a grin

A silly boy out sad boy in
When you look at me I just look back and grin

Dead grinnin

When your friends come down on you
and you’re not quite sure what to do
please look at them and give them a grin

It’s true you’ll be gone one day
so make sure that you say
That in my casket I’d like for my lips to grin

Dead grinnin
Track Name: Little Bear
Little Bear

I wrote a little song for a little bitty bear
and he quit his job and grew out his hair
Now he’s hooked on pills

If you could bottle up time and sell it for a dime
you might be a hero you might be fine
Or you just might be exactly the same

Don’t be a fool, stay in school,
but mostly just remember the golden rule
And don’t you dare go jerking off too much

But we all fuck up in our own little ways
prostitutes and skater boys with broken legs
cigarettes and chew and too much mt. dew
and not giving a good god damn about anyone but you

I wrote a little song for a little bitty girl
and then she danced away, into the night she twirled
Seems like I lost that little girl to the world

Just find your dream and make it come true
And maybe help somebody find their dreams too
Then I’ll bet you’ll finally know what it’s like to be loved

You see you don’t have to be a hero to me
or for that matter anybody
You just got to go out there and be yourself

But we all fuck up in our own little ways
prostitutes and skater boys with broken legs
cigarettes and chew and too much Mt. dew
And not giving a fuck about anyone but you
Track Name: Insignificant
Insignificant

I’m feeling insignificant today
and I know exactly why
I went to work in a button up shirt
cheap shoes and a discount tie

I can’t even fake it
I wish the money was enough
I wish the money was enough
I can’t even fake it

I can’t even hide it
I come off as weird to everyone
Come off as weird to everyone
I can’t even hide it

So I built a world in my head
that only I can see
I keep hearing that drugs are bad
but they’ve sure been good to me

I can’t even fake it

Ever since I was a kid
I thought I was more important than anyone
But I’m not
Now I know I’m not

So I built a world in my head
that only I can see
I keep hearing that drugs are bad
but they’ve sure been good to me
Track Name: Tell the World
Tell the World

The world will wrap its arms around you
misguide you, make you think you’re free
fill your head with shit until you’re old enough to recite it
They’ll have you working 9 to 5 the whole time you’re alive
Then you think one day you’ll be free
But that day you’ll never see

We base our lives off ancient scrolls
that almost no one even know
Then think one day we’ll be saved
Forever happy after grave

This world it spins on its own
But we think we’re the ones that own
Everything that we see
Oh how silly you and me

No matter how big or small you are
All that matters is your heart
Don’t be a slave to the world
Little boys and little girls


I do dare tell the world to fuck off
