about

"Bog County Ballads strips Dani House to his goblin core in an homage to his extra-terrestrial ancestry. These ballads however are not at all alien in nature, they are of love, longing, reflection, and so much more. It's also one hell of a ride"
- "Wild" Bill Hickock

Track Name: See The Day (When Goblins Come From Outer Space)
I'll not live to see the day
When goblins come from outer space
To take me back to my home land
And until then
I must pretend
Despite my birth
On planet Earth
That I'm not them
Or be condemned
By cannibals
From wormholes
To eat us all
I need to call
To Trinity
'Cause I can't seem
To find the reason I must be
Amongst the Earth
I'll always search
But I'll not live to see the day
When goblins come from outer space
Track Name: I Don't Want You
I don't want you listening to me
I don't want you listening to me
Because I'm locked inside this room
With only myself to blame
You wanna talk it over, talk it over
Talk it over, talk it over again

I don't want you chasing after me
I don't want you chasing after me
Because I'm running out of running shoes
With only myself to blame
So should we talk it over, talk it over
Talk it over, talk it over again

I'm a contradiction, contradicting me
If you step into my orbit it'll be the death of me
Track Name: Dying to Die
I'm not going to play dumb cause I know that you're not blind to the way
I look at you
You know I feel like I'm floating
But not in the cliche love song way, more like I
Feel like I'm a ghost
I'm a dead man if I love you
And I'm dying to die for you.
They say it's 5 o'clock somewhere and though
I normally don't care I need to forget
That it's 5 am
It's not fun to be in love with a human when you're not one
It makes me almost wish I was
I'm a dead man if I love you
And I'm dying to die for you
Would you kill me if I asked you?
Track Name: Wrong Place, Wrong Time
there was a time I had a heart before it ever broke
but I can't remember back that far since all that's left is smoke
it amazes me how I can still fall so in love
yet after all this time I haven't learned a thing
I just pick up where I left off
I know sticks and stones can break my bones
that's quite easy to see
but all it's gonna take to break my heart's for you to look at me
I'm probably just being conspired against by someone up above
cause I'm always at the wrong place at the wrong time in love

I fell in love while I was in love, then I fell in love again
and then when wishing for love at the wishing well
instead of one, I wished for ten
I'm sure it's just as well they've promptly left me with a shove
cause I'm always at the wrong place at the wrong time in love

I fell in love with a homosexual girl
I can't shake the feeling she's the only one
I guess I'm not long for this world
there was a time I had a heart before it ever broke
but I can't remember back that far since all that's left is smoke
I know sticks and stones can break my bones
that's quite easy to see
but all it's gonna take to break my heart's for you to look at me
I'm probably just being conspired against by someone up above
cause I'm always at the wrong place at the wrong time in love
I know I'll never stop although I've had more than enough
cause I'm always at the wrong place at the wrong time in love
Track Name: Living Hell
I can't sleep
Haven't for weeks
Feels like there's hot sauce in my jeans
Drank too much beer
To see clear
But I still can't get my dreams to appear
But I think I'll be fine
It hurts too much
To eat my lunch
Fingers bleed on everything I touch
I'm sick of it
I don't know shit
My coffin lid is closing bit by bit
But I think I'll be fine
And I want to tell you what I can't tell
I know I've been a living hell
That's why I left your side
I stomp the floor
I close the door
Don't need these lights on anymore
I throw the beef
I kick the chief
Replaced the can openers with my teeth
But I think I'll be fine
I'm spilling brine
I've lost my mind
From killing so much of your time
My socks are full
Of imbeciles
Walking away til they tear open their souls
But I think I'll be fine
And I want to tell you what I can't tell
I know I've been a living hell
That's why I left your side
Track Name: Take Me on an Expiration Date
Take me on an expiration date
I've got a license to eat, and clean the fucking plate
Take me on an expiration date
I'll put an oatmeal bullet in your fucking face
Take me on an expiration date
There's hamburger hand jobs every day
Take me on an expiration date
I don't care what you give me, I'll eat it
Track Name: Hot Baloney
Talking backwards trying to tell you how I feel
Hot baloney in my mouth stops words from coming out
And I dare not lean in for a kiss with hot baloney breath like this
I'm only trying to show how much I love you
Where can I possibly start with hot baloney in my heart?
I can't tell how well you'd take to that part of me
So I try
Reaching for your hand with mine coated in sweat
and Tommy T in the tape deck, which makes me double check
And to stop a gasp I bite my lip, there's hot baloney in my grip
What else can I do?
I'm so in love with you
I'm still tongue-tied trying to tell you how I feel
I want to be if I can, your hot baloney man
And if I can ever swallow it, we can make out til we both get sick
That's what I'd like to do, to show you I love you
Track Name: Jiffy Pop Moon
Living in a microwave world
And I'll say it again
Living in a microwave world
With a Jiffy Pop Moon
Living in a microwave world
