One of the many songs of this era, 1991, that began with Mike's drum track. The beat really led the direction of this tune and I just wrote something that would go along with it. Recorded at our freezing rented music house on Staten Island. The house we were in was great for rehearsing and writing until winter came and we started to get our first heating oil bills. Mostly we would keep it off and wear hats and gloves, giving the oil man $10 at a time to get us through a short stint of heat before we would tough it out again. I think Crackface was a theme for that period. Never really went back to it and it only appeared on the 1991 Ride The Soul cassette EP.


tie game, insane
its too tight, its not right
mind play go away
crackface leave this place
everyday run away
catch it if you can
got to got to
got to do it again
do it again
