Recorded to cassette tape on Yamah MT4X at Gremlintone Studios, Santa Rosa, CA. 2015. All lyrics, music and arrangement by J. Palmer.


Sometimes I dream about leaving, when I walk downtown/ All the half baked creepers, with their eminent frowns/ And if everyone is leaving, no one sticks it out/ who will be there? to throw some bright idea around/ I need the city to love me now/ late at night, not many sounds/ complicated little town/ Rosie Rosie, make proud// All the years that I lived here, how I watch the city change/ All the good people I knew, that juts walked away/ I myself was guilty, of the very crime/ If you don't love your hometown, it'll turn on you in time.


from Gremlintone Demos, track released January 7, 2016
