about

Despite lyrically heavy content -- and the fact that this album was written the very same week frontman Elliott Kozel experienced the deaths of two close friends -- Expensive is nonetheless full of blithely charming up-tempo songs. At nearly 45 minutes long, the band's second album provides a pleasantly tailored listen throughout. While songs like "Write On" are incredibly infectious, other tunes, like "You're A Party," crescendo with polished nonchalance and delicacy. Then "Things Look Good" has a Dylan-esque vibe to it with a friendly harmonica, nostalgic gritty vocals and catchy guitar chords. Alternately somber, poignant, lively or even a bit waltzy, Expensive Vomit in A Cheap Hotel will leave you neither nauseous nor drowsy.

Track Name: Write On
like a drunken kiss with someone you won't miss
gonna love you 'til my eyes are crossed
like a thirsty throat on a sinking boat
gonna wait until my neck goes numb
like a wooden heart that a spark won't start
gonna tie myself to the lightning rod
like a hanging noose when the knot is loose
gonna cup both my hands and trap this fly

chorus:
cuz i can't write you outta my dreams
so i'll write your name in the window steam
it'll disappear as you depart
i just wanna write you outta my heart

like an empty spot in a parking lot
i get jealous thoughts wherever you are
like the cracks i skip where my mother did trip
gonna hold me down like a cold war fog
like your mouth's full of bees when you whisper to me
you went under my shirt and stung me twice
like a plastic bag's a confederate flag
gonna drift into the water supply

chorus

lord send me back through
never should've left you
lord send me back through
never should've left you

like the garbage bags that your father did drag
yeah, people will scavenge as they stroll by
like a lifeless seed in a field full of weeds
you gotta kneel right down and hold it hard
hard

chorus
