From the album The New Years Tapes - EP

In cart Not available Out of stock

Invertebrate is the final song off of The New Years Tapes, and it started with a guitar riff that Lou had sitting around for a very long time. It never ended up being used for anything, but everyone loved it so we decided to use it for the intro. Invertebrate is our favorite song to play live, and it is also our most streamed song on Spotify!

Julian wrote the lyrics about a person who lives their entire life thinking that money can buy happiness. This person also thinks that all they need in life is a “hot wife,” a “big house,” and a “nice car” in order to have a good life. The lyrics then go on to describe how Julian doesn’t want his life to be anything like that, and how he knows that he could only live a life that revolves around doing music for a living.

Lyrics

No backbone
No home
No place to call your own
You got peace of mind, well that's fine but
Tell me what happiness you'll find

No backbone
No home
No place to call your own
You got peace of mind, well that's fine but
Tell me what happiness you'll find at a desk
Like all the rest
I won't help you out
No, fuck that mess
Pretentious fuck
Pretentious fuck

It looks like life stabbed you in the back
And tied a noose around your neck
That tie has a got a task
So let it do what it does best
You've got a noose, but it's too loose
Put it to use
Put it to use
Just close your eyes and jump
At least you'll leave behind a lump sum of cash
Take a stack
Shove it up your ass

Provider
Soul Sucker
Hot wife get home and fuck her
Big house
Nice car
But no love for yourself
What will you do when you break your back from the weight of all the pressure
Spend your life looking for answers
Hopelessly wander

It looks like life stabbed you in the back
And tied a noose around your neck
That tie has a got a task
So let it do what it does best
You've got a noose, but it's too loose
Put it to use
Put it to use
Just close your eyes and jump
At least you'll leave behind a lump sum of cash
Take a stack
Shove it up your ass

You better have a plan B in case you get lazy
That doesn't work for me
You better have a plan B in case you get lazy
That doesn't work for me
Fuck a real job
Fuck misery
You gave up on your dreams but don't put that on me
I don't need a fucking plan B

You gave up on your dreams but don't put that on me
You gave up on your dreams but don't put that on me

It looks like life stabbed you in the back
And tied a noose around your neck
That tie has a got a task
So let it do what it does best
You've got a noose, but it's too loose
Put it to use
Put it to use
Just close your eyes and jump
At least you'll leave behind a lump sum of cash
