I think about cigarettes
And smoking pot
And I don’t know if I remember the password
for that website that covers my tuition

But cigarettes are expensive
And the last time I did pot is was laced with cocaine
I don 't know if I've recovered since

When did my car become your taxi cab
When did my bed become your hotel room
When did the idea of putting yourself before other only apply to you and never to me
I was drowning, everything was waged against me and you pretended not to see

Get off the internet, and look me in the eye
You don't have to tell me where you'd go if you left this place tonight
Cigarettes are expensive, but they're cheaper than a bus ticket to get you out of town
I could try and try and try but I could never keep you around.

I was your quick fix
I was a band-aid for your brain
I was the alcohol for a wound now watch me sink down the drain

There are paintings
There is art on the walls and I have no idea what any of it means
There are paintings, there are sculptures in bas relief
And as I look at you, and hold your hand, I'm relieved

A Judgmental Swarm Of Bees Albany, New York

Hi I'm Sam, the singer, songwriter, and guitarist for this band. My friend Meaghan plays the drums. When we play shows we love to get audience members on stage with us to play the washboard or tambourine. We screen print all of our own merch and record everything ourselves in my basement.

We like what we do, hopefully you will too.
