about

VAPERS New York, New York

VAPERS is Spanish Maria, Early Gates, Hard Metal Chris and Uncle Bernard. Thoroughly contrived and painfully aware, they seek to find meaning in their sincere and often times campy compositions of 22nd century punk music. Life is hard, take what you can...This Is My Body, broken for you. ... more

Track Name: Lady Andy
Lady Andy

Lady Andy made a beeline for the door, the driver showed up late and made her miss her call. But she don't need nobody else, she put her make up on the shelf, and as far as she can tell. We can all just go to hell.

Lady Andy. Wall Street candy. Compact, lipstick, chicks with dip sticks. Businessmen with special interests.

Lady Andy’s got addictions to maintain, she'll have no wedding day but she's always getting laid and getting paid. But she don't need nobody else, she has a needle and a belt, and as far as she can tell. We can all just go to hell.

Track Name: Get It
Well I met this girl from the bottom of the world the loneliest star of Texas. It was the Fourth of July, I got too high and I wondered what would be next for us. But don't you know we took it slow, she had to go. oh oh, she had to GO

She was on the West Coast and I was on the East Coast and a couple of months went by. We saw each other again in the Dominican and we didn't get as high this time. But things went faster when I asked her to be mine, this time. Won't you be mine baby this time.

We took a walk downtown and she didn't make a sound when I told her about the darkness. She has some of her own and likes to be alone to work it out in silence.

And I get it. Yeah I get it. Yeah I get it. Now come get it. Yeah come get it. You won't regret it. Yeah come get it. God damnit there I said it, now come and get it. Get it.
Track Name: Negative Pest
Please don't call and please don't text. Please don't come around for sex. I don't want you in my nest, flyaway shit bird. Negative past.
Fly away fly far far away I don't want you coming round here to play. I need a vacation, I need a rest. Yo, y’heard baby you're negative past.

How did I find you I don't know, but I just need you to go. Oh oh. Negative Pest.

So what's good baby you were just bumming me out. I don't even know what you're talking about. I'm packing a bag and I'm headed west, I got to get away from the negative pest. I got a fly away, fly far-far-a-Flo-hi. Rearview baby I'm just waving goodbye. You think you're so slick and you think you're the best but you are a mess at best girl a negative pest.

How did I find you I don't know, but I just need you to go. What did I do in my past to deserve this pain in the ass, I don't know. Negative pest.

Don't call baby, don't text. Negative Pest.

Where did I find you I don't know but I just need you to go. Negative Pest.
Track Name: Human Cyborg
On a flight back from Spain now I'm stuck here on a plane. Implant sticking from the brain who is this guy it's so insane.

HUMAN CYBORG

Bounce around from line to line, Security getting so hard lined. They can't handle his receiver human cyborg want to meet you clashing colors like my heart he's there sitting in the dark what's his name and what's his deal want his number that's for real
Track Name: Demons Are Real
I didn't see you there. I didn't see you anywhere. Fix up and comb your hair. It's a feeling, I know. It hasn't happened yet. Congratulations on your news. I read about you in the obit section of the daily news.....and no one cared, and no one came.
The feelings are true. Demons are real. They're coming for you.
I didn't know her well. I didn't know what to say. I'm sure she wore it well, she was feeling no pain. And every day was her last, and every day was the same. Until her final breath came, and at her wake. No one cared, and no one came.
These feelings are true. Demons are real. They're coming for you. Demons are real. They're coming for you. Demons are real. They're coming for me. They're coming for you.
Track Name: Sleeping Alone
Meet me here at 8. But just a couple of blocks away. Well I can't have them se us baby. Who knows what they'd say. And what did you expect? Did you think that I'd respect you? No, no no.
You're better than sleeping alone. You're better than drinking alone. You're better than standing here just thinking on my own. You're better than sleeping alone.
Well meet me there again. A double whiskey and a friend. You don't know her name, but you might recognize her face.
And what else do you need? Did you really think I'd bleed for you? No, no no.
You're better than sleeping alone. You're better than drinking alone. You're better than standing here just thinking on my own. You're better than sleeping alone.
You ain't the marrying kind, but you're a good time baby now, oh oh oh.
You want to be my wife? Why don't you stay the night and then go, go go go.
You're better than sleeping alone. You're better than drinking alone. You're better than standing here just thinking on my own. You're better than sleeping alone.
Track Name: Pretty
She said;
Hello. What's shakin' jello? Pretty, pretty pretty high. When you coming down? I don't know.
I'm on a trip into the cold, and I'm never coming home. I'm getting fucked up to forget you, and now I wanna fuck you up. I don't know.
Getting deeper inside my head, I need an off switch. Turning blue while I'm seeing red, turn into kitsch. It's over, over again. I don't know.
Well look at you, you're so together. Why don't you take another hit, you piece of shit. I don't want to hear it. Because I'm always in trouble with you.
Getting deeper inside my head, I need an off switch. Turning blue while I'm seeing red, turn into kitsch. It's over, over again. I don't know.

And then he said;
You think you're sad girl? I've been in bed now for a week. But I ain't mad at u honey, ya know every shit bird's got a beak. I'll ghost yo' ass, throw Negative Pest down on repeat. Welcome to hell honey, how you luv this fuckin' heat. Welcome to hell baby, how you luhhh this fuckin' heat?

And while he was saying that, she said;
Getting deeper inside my head, I need an off switch. Turning blue while I'm seeing red, I turn into kitsch. You show your ugly side in bed, now I'm the bitch.

And then together they said;
It's over. Over again. I don't know.
Track Name: Kinda Homeless
I've been kinda homeless since you went to Tennessee. I'm half way off the grid, and more than half way out to sea. But my head's a little clearer, I erased the cocaine dealer from my phone. And I've been staying with some friends, you know the ones that pay their rent and own their homes.

I haven't been quite sober since you went away last spring. You know I needed a couple in me, just to take my ring off. But I swear I'm getting better, with each confession letter that I write. But baby it makes me sad to think, that we are better friends than "man and wife".

I taught myself to sing, while you were out doing your thing. But did you stop to think, while I was out for a drink?

That I've been kinda wishing that you never went away. The future is unwritten, lord, but I'm just saying....I don't know what I'm doing half the time. Face down, pillow talking to myself, just like I kinda lost my mind. Face down pillow talking, while baby you went a walking. I can't say that I blame you, but I'm really not that same pathetic guy.
