Liner Notes

This is a punk-inspired tune, I just wanted to see how 200bpm felt... so I dropped a basic drum loop down, set the warp drive at 200 bpm, and laid down guitar, then bass, then vox. As an afterthought I added backing vox only to the chorus, to fatten it up a bit. (Totally not punk, I realize)

My apologies for the vocals, I could barely talk when I recorded this one but for some reason singing didn't hurt... well, not me anyway... I make no such promises for the listener's safety.

By the way, for FAWMers not familiar with Madison jargon, Mad-Towne is a term of endearment for Madison, WI.

Lyrics

Stranded in MadTowne
Totally snow-bound
Spent the morning shoveling
F*cking plow just went down

It’s really kinda maddening
All this snow is saddening
Sometimes I just can’t catch a break

Prisoner in my own home
No calls on my phone
Spent the morning wishing I
…didn’t feel so alone

It’s really kinda tragic
I’m lonely and lovesick
Sometimes I just can’t catch a…

Stranded in Mad Towne
Won’t somebody set me free?
Stranded and snow bound prayin’
Please God just rescue me

Pace the floor in frustration
Already tried masturbation
Spent the morning wishing I could
…find inebriation

It’s really kinda depressing
Drinking salad dressing
Sometimes I just can’t catch a…

Stranded in MadTowne
Totally snow-bound
Spent the morning shoveling
F*cking plow just went down

It’s really kinda maddening
All this snow is saddening
Sometimes I just can’t catch a…

Stranded in Mad Towne
Won’t somebody set me free?
Stranded and snow bound prayin’
Please God just rescue me
