Stepdad – My Leather
May 20, 2013
Sounds similar to: Ghost Beach, Superhumanoids, MNDR
Maybe it’s because Phoenix Comicon is this upcoming weekend, but I have video games on the brain. Which is especially funny since the beginning of this song sounds to me like the 8-bit Nintendo version of what a silent film organ would be. So just imagine Charlie Chaplin doing it trademark “waddle-walk” while your ears get a load of a song about a Trampire. Here’s a “bite” of the lyrics:She’s got style
she rips it off my back and puts it on her coat hook
She won’t smile
you’d best avert your eyes and not give her a second look
Things she wants
not a companion but some pages in her journal
Things go wrong
we started equal but it got way too paternal She wants a coat made of my leather, and my fur, and my nails
She’s always cold despite the weather, she needs sun, she’s so pale
You think she’s had enough, it’s not enough, she always wants more
She always wants more of my leather, and my fur, and my nails.
Yup, that’s exactly what a Trampire does: lures a guy in and drains him of life, money and whatever else she wants until he’s nothing but a bag of bones, AND THEN she wants that too! Think women like that don’t exist? Think again. They’re out there so be careful.
In the meantime, have fun with this and hopefully I’ll see y’alls at Comicon!
