You and your Mardi Gras head...

If crazy was water, you'd be a Great Lake I hope I don't make the wrong mistake

"Come back," the letter said, "or you will surely fail again." It's more than that--I am bound to.

Somebody landed on the moon and raised the Red, White & Blue not in the name of Science but to show what Government can do

"Abandon ship," she said. "Abandon everything: That's what I think you did; I got mixed up in it."

Poor Mom 03:07
No man is an island except Man, the Isle off England and thats where I'll be if ever i can scrape enough money together

Screwballs comin' at me like a baseball bat please don't let me be understood nothing's harder than your head when you're made of solid wood

I guess I learned that trust--love and trust-- never meant a thing to you and maybe you can sleep after all your deceipt but your Saturday eyes gave away Friday night's lies and I know it's time for me to leave

Everybody I know is half-dead, that's okay, but it makes me think: should I work in the mall anymore?

Forget the days, it's hours forget the space in between it's only one red line on a map that keeps us apart

about

Here's a review of the original 2003 release by famous guy Matt Galloway in NOW Magazine (Jan 16, 2003):

THE GOLDEN SEALS No-Hitter (Guerilla) Rating:
Rating: NNN

After hitting a home run with the Golden Seals’ debut, Storybook Endings, Ottawa pop whiz Dave Merritt follows it up with No-Hitter, a collection of new songs, unreleased tunes and bedroom scratchings. The offbeat charm of Storybook Endings remains, as Merritt and his revolving cast of players wind their way through smarter-than-average soft pop, matching subtle hooks with clever turns of phrase. The different recording situations lead to an inevitable unevenness, but for a set of apparent outtakes No-Hitter holds together remarkably well.
