about

Everything in Pen San Francisco

Combining the pop sensibility of Big Star and narrative observations of Jonathan Richman and Aimee Mann, Everything in Pen’s songs cover many topics---war criminals, sexism, and Dave Eggers--through her unique lens as an obsessive reader. She sings the things you won’t say aloud, of the foolishness, the hopefulness and the almost unbearable humanness of us all. ... more

Track Name: The Neighbors
They ooh and aah with such enthusiasm
that I'm sure that they must be faking
Last night I had to go outside to take a call
Because of all the noise they were making
I always thought I'd be more openminded
But I have decided that sometimes enough is far too much

That's the neighbors having sex again
And I won't even sing this song
Because they'll hear it
And they'll know it's about them
You turn up the tv when the neighbors are having sex again

I wouldn't recognize you if I saw you on the street
But I would know you anywhere
If you were yelling Oh My God
And I agree that our entryway is functional
But I'm begging you please find some other place to get it on
Cause I always thought I'd be more openminded
but I have decided that sometimes enough is far too much

That's the neighbors having sex again
And I won't even sing this song
Because they'll hear it
And they'll know it's about them
You turn up the tv when the neighbors are having sex again

And when we finally meet you say hello, stick out your hand
I don't want to touch it
Cause I know exactly where it's been

That's the neighbors having sex again
And I won't even sing this song
Because they'll hear it
And they'll know it's about them
You turn up the tv when the neighbors are having sex again

Turn up the tv when the neighbors are having sex again
and again and again
Oh my God
My neighbors are having sex again
Track Name: Little Dogs
Friday night
And I'm out for a walk
So are all of them
They're under my feet
Try to give them more space
But they're criss-crossing me
Entangled in leash
I want to kick them
I want to kick them

Little dogs
Overtaking the city
They're necessities
They're accessories
Little dogs
How your owners defend that you're their best friend
And not a little lesser than
Still I want to kick you
I want to kick you

And I want to kick you
Cause I know you could fly
Up above all the nonsense to which you stay tied
So I won't stand close this time
Little dogs

I don't mind when you run through the park on a sunny day
I don't mind when you're chasing a stick out among the waves
But you walk by in pocketbooks
You ride by in baskets
You roll by in strollers designed for an infant
And you're wearing your sweaters
In case you get cold
And your hair and your nails are more groomed than my own

And I want to kick you
Cause I know you could fly
Up above all the nonsense to which you stay tied
So I won't stand close this time
Little dogs

And I want to kick you
Cause I know you'd fly
Above all the nonsense to which you stay tied
So I won't stand close this time
Little dogs
Track Name: Benzodiazepine
Benzodiazepine I notice your effect on me
Everything's still happening
It doesn't matter in the best sense of that word
Benzodiazepine I notice your effect on me
Everything's still happening
It doesn't matter in the best sense of that word

Everyone's a little brighter a little bit blurred
And everything's is so much clearer a little obscured
This has never been so easy
So easy

Benzodiazepine I see you've got control of things
I'll just sit back and let this be
It doesn't matter in the best sense of that word
Benzodiazepine I once was blind but now I see
I don't think that I brushed my teeth
It doesn't matter in the best sense of that word

Everyone is a little brighter a little bit blurred
And everything is so much clearer a little obscured
This has never been so easy
So easy

Benzodiazepine illusion of inspiring
When all my thoughts stay incomplete
It doesn't matter in the best sense of that word
Benzodiazepine I fear you'll make a wreck of me
I don't remember anything
It doesn't matter in the best sense of that word

Everyone is so much braver a little bit blurred
And everything is so much clearer a little obscured
But I don't think it should be so easy
So easy

Benzodiazepine I won't pretend this is not real
You'll paper over how I feel
It doesn't matter in the best sense of that word
Benzodiazepine I won't pretend
This is not real
You'll paper over how I feel
I won't matter
Track Name: Mr. Comstock
Mr Comstock says
I got offended again today
Have you seen what they sell on the streets of this city
Why is there a law
If they don't really mean it

Mr Comstock says
Just give me a job and a gun and your mail
And I'll wipe out all obscenity
Twelve tons burned
I know you'll thank me for it later

Cause I'm stopping porn
For the good of the nation
I'm stopping porn
For moral edification
I'm stopping porn
I'm stopping porn

Mr Comstock says
I got offended again today
But no one sides with smut dealers
But infidels
The liberals free lovers
The long haired men
The short haired women accompany them
Their lives are hollow and rotten to the core
I know you won't want this
For any son or daughter of yours

So I'm stopping porn
For the good of the nation
I'm stopping porn
For moral edification
I'm stopping porn
I'm stopping porn
