    Fellow Black Camaricans,
    We feel that one of the greatest perks of using Bandcamp to facilitate digital albums is the ability to embed our lyrics into the song files. Make sure to tap the screen of your smartphone while listening to this album to view the lyrics to each song. Also, while on Bandcamp, don't forget to browse each song individually by clicking on the song's name. We went through great lengths to transcribe our memories of anecdotal trivia based on each one of these tunes. You will be missing vital BC info if you ignore this feature.

about

This release compiles songs from the BC catalogue that either failed to make it onto an album, or appear on an album in their daimonic form, lying somewhere between their divine and mortal states. Some of the songs have been prominent staples of the BC live show for years, while others were caught in the middle of an artistic battle between good songs and evil ones, vanquished on the battle field and never to be heard from until now. They are commemorated as those which were lost amongst the musical equivalent of the 7th Cavalry in a fight so treacherous that mere remnants were left scattered about, only to be reassembled by frivolous means, and delivered upon you as glimmering strands of digital hogwash. To celebrate our 10th anniversary, Black Camaro presents: B-Sides & C-Sides Vol. 2

Track Name: Afternoon Man
It is 11:57
On the last gasp of the morning time
I don't need coffee
inside my body
I smoke myself blind
with a sniff of sunshine
Don't wake me up at 5 to 9 anymore
get out my room
I'm waking up around noon

Afternoon Man
laughter's comin'
He loves the seven wonders of the world

Afternoon Man
1 and 2 man
Hey man
I'm an Afternoon Man

Let's cook steak and
we'll make some bacon
I've got an oven
and we can cook it naked
All night long!

It comes in waves my love
It does come in waves my love
It comes in waves


It comes in waves my love
It does come in waves

I take a shower
for half an hour
I'm lookin' so fine
no I'm not even tryin'
Don't wake me up at 5 to 9 anymore
get out my room
I'm waking up around noon

Afternoon, Afternoon, Afternoon Man
Afternoon, Afternoon, Afternoon Man
Afternoon, Afternoon, Afternoon Man
Afternoon, Afternoon, Afternoon Man

What?

It comes in waves
Afternoon Man
Track Name: Con·stel·lady·tion
We could set to fire
all the fields we passed
the lengths we laughed
the sassafras

Constaladysion
the faded sun's okay
the temp was cool
the breeze was soothing

it's true
I only want to make it with you
I want to make it only with you

Talkin' bout the walkin'
on our vacation
the sun's so fun
the radiation

it's true
I only want to make it with you
I want to make it only with you

There's a place in the park
where I go after dark
I'm the key
you're the lock
and it's open

It's the sound of your sweat
It's the smell of your breath
You can scream cause I'm deaf

and it's true
I only want to make it with you
I want to make it only with you
Track Name: Teenage Teenager
I was a teenage teenager
hanging in the ditches with the dogs
jumping over someone else's walls
I didn't know a thing at all

I was a terrible teenager
burning all the bushes in the fields
looking for the things that I could kill
killing all the feelings that I felt
and dealing with those killings was a drag

t-t-teenager
t-t-teenager
15 and a 17
14 and a 19
15 and a 16
well I was ditching when I was 13

I was a television teenager
flipping through the channels on the boob tube
never ever cleaning up my room
I didn't even try to use no vacuum

Summer time

Man, I'm American
I'm m-m-merican
I'm an American, man

Track Name: Hologram (demo)
Hologram
You really think that I could of changed?
But that's the way I am
Even when you're miles away

You put your fingers right to my face
And touch an empty space
Feel the light on your hand
Girl I'm laughing
I'm laughing, oooh

Track Name: Dontbelong With Max Supera
TOM: Um, we're...

MAX: I think they're doing vocal...

FUZZ: We just need a minute

MAX: Yeah

TOM: We're tweaking the knobs

MAX: Black Camaro's pinching nipples and tweaking knobs

FUZZ: We're eating cookies

SCOTT: Hey, I didn't get cookies

MAX: (in background) courtesy of Bryan Todd

FUZZ: (in background) What's our next song?

MAX: alright, Bryan Todd brought...some fucking awesome cookies. Should I be worried about these? Are these gonna change the rest of my night right now?

BG: Yes!

RICK: (in background) I saved you a cookie Scott x 2

TOM: Dude, that's got Oxycontin in it.

FUZZ: Sinister laugh

Track Name: Killamanjaro/G.You Ain't Real (live)
Fix it cricket
under the sink
Let's get rid of the stink
In our home
on top of the mountain

KILLAMANJARO X3

Mister kiss her
peck on the cheek
Let's skip up to the creek
I can't dance
And neither can you bitch

KILLAMANJARO X3
_______________________________

God you ain't real
If you are
Then just kill me right now

Man it's all a lie
Do you think you go to
Heaven when you die?

No you just stay here
and rot on this Earth
you're never mad
and the fire doesn't burn

You're so happy
and you don't even know it
You're all alone
but your eyes don't show it

God you ain't real
if you are
than just kill me right now
Track Name: Animal Eyes (live)
I knew you were cool
We hung out at the school
By the end of the year
We were out of our minds

It's the fool who is fit for the end of the world
So tenderly
And gently by the moon
And a fool who would fall at the feet of a girl
Eventually

I thought you were hot
But you thought you were not
I gave all that I could
And that's all that I had

It's the fool who is fit for the end of the world
So tenderly
And gently by the moon
And a fool who would fall at the feet of a girl
Eventually

I knew you were down
When you didn't let me down
We were both on the floor
When I told you the truth

It's the fool who is fit for the end of the world
So tenderly
And gently by the moon
And a fool who would fall at the feet of a girl
Eventually

Such a wonderful girl you could be
It's a wonderful world you and me
We are animal eyes in the night
Staring right through the flame of a fire
We are wings of a weather balloon
We are cats in a colored cartoon
By the light of the magical moon
We are smoke flowing out of the room

That's the sound of downtown going down
Town
Track Name: Spanish Galleons (live)
If all the Spanish Galleons
were burnt across
the horizon

And in the meadows
a lizard sang
I'm home again
but nothing's changed

And all they ever found
was a feather
by the water

It feels like tent
a voice of wind
the trail won't lead me
back through here again

Man
We kept our ears to the land
And
the door disappeared in the floor

Man
the head was stuffed in a can
And
It was buried
on the edge of the sand

If all the desperate carrion
ripped off the flesh
of child and man
and in the middle
of where and when
a life begins
but twelve will end

And all they ever found
was a feather
by the water

It feels like tent
a voice of wind
the trail won't lead us
back through here again

Man
We kept our ears to the land
And
the door disappeared in the floor

Man
the head was stuffed in a can
And
It was buried
on the edge of the sand
Track Name: New Mexico
New Mexico your motto is so right
There was a pack rat that died twice
From a mountain top a cloud was born
And a thousand blue beetles swarmed
And in dying turned black as night
When fireballs took flight
My hair all full of mice

New Mexico your motto is so right
I count split pines and lightning strikes
And make blisters of my hands
Three families of local folks
Chant "I hate rabbits" wards off smoke
La Canada del oso close
Yet so far away

well Is it for the things that pass before our eyes
That we hold on to such gray hairs
Or is it because we're afraid to die
That we hold on to the same gray hairs

I sense an opportunity to investigate the matter
Hey black bear are you scared of Lavin?
Hey mountain lion are you scared of Tom?
Hey wooded owl are you scared of Fuzz?
Neither am I, I punch my stomach just because

New Mexico your motto is so right
There was a pack rat that died twice
From a mountain top a cloud was born
And a thousand blue beetles swarmed
And a three legged dog spent the night
When fireballs took flight
My hair all full of mice
Track Name: In The Background
Are you the ghost of the dawn?
I wear the ring on my right hand
I hear you like to drink blood
The king has 17 suns

Looking at a pic
looking at a picture
looking at a picture of
looking at a picture of you
looking at a picture of you
there's a ghost of a man in a black hat standing

Track Name: Lemonade
I saw it in a dream
it smell like gasoline
it taste like lemonade
it taste like lemonade
It taste like lemonade

I found it in a hole
was put there long ago
it must have been so so old
it taste like lemonade
it taste like lemonade
it taste like lemonade


I had no money, man
I'd lost my final hand
I've got this one thing left
it taste like lemonade
it taste like lemonade
it taste like lemonade
Track Name: Mermaid
The color of the coast
electric brown and blue
The seaweed is a ghost
entangled with the moon

I fell in love a mermaid

The sweat is just as salty
as the ocean silver light
I'm on the surface darling
waiting for a bite

I fell in love a mermaid

I love you on the beach
I love you on the rocks too
I love you underwater, babe.
until my face t-turn blue.
Until my face t-turns blue
I give my time to you-u
the oxygen cannot get in
it feel like déjà vu.

I fell in love with a mermaid

I fell in love with a mermaid

I'm feelin on her fin
tryin to get it in
trying to get it on
Track Name: Cool On Cocaine
I do marijuana to hide the pain
and some people tell me
they're cool on cocaine
I drink alcohol because it gives me a kick
the only time I take a pill is when I am sick
and I'm sick
I'm tired
I use silver duct tape to fix many things
I use it to patch up all the holes in my jeans
and I'm dead and I'm dead and I'm dead
Track Name: Dawn
Dawn Dawn Dawn Dawn

I love to see the dawn
So early in the morning
right before it's gone

maybe when you wake up
or did you stay up
all night long again?

way beyond the mountain
the sun is shouting
here I come again

Dawn Dawn Dawn Dawn Dawn
I listen to the dawn
the second it is breathing
is the moment that it's gone
Track Name: Kill Somebody And Shit
I hide
in the dark
But the black and white
only goes so far
So I take cover
cause I love her
I’m a gunner
And I’ll take your fucking life!

Surprise
I’m right under
Hear the thunder
Of my blunderbuss
But I’m silent
And I’m violent
Leave you trying
to see me when I snap your neck

I’m an agent
of death
And I’m the reason that you’re taking
your last breath
I was trained
by the best
To shoot a bullet through your back
that explodes from your chest
Track Name: Hold On To Your Baby Now
Its so hard to hold onto some sort of connection
to the dirt on the ground and the dirt up in heaven
and you realize that this is the thing you're afraid of
the death of yourself and not somebody else

hold on to your baby, now
hold on tightly
and never let her go

hold on to your baby now
hold on tighter
if you're still not sure

The moment you looked up, your hair in your face,
like you happened to come across someone
who you could be close to instead of alone by the fire
with no place to go so you watch videos

hold on to your baby, now
hold on tightly
never let her go

hold on to your baby now
hold on tighter
if you're still not sure

hold on to your baby, now
hold on tightly
never let her go

hold on to your baby now
hold on tighter
if you're still not sure
Track Name: Black Limousine
Inside you, there's a heart,
keepin' tabs on all your investments
each and every love is brought into question
and every little kiss
and every single itch
becomes an obsession

Whatever I give its not enough
whatever I take its way too much

Inside you, there's a desire
to be lustful, untrusted and greedy
and I got this feeling you no longer need me
and all i have to do
is turn it back on you
'cuz this is how you treat me

Inside you, Inside of your head
there's a brain all covered in bone
it tries to make you laugh when you're feeling alone
and every single thought
takes everything you got
and then its gone.

Whatever I give its not enough
whatever I take its way too much


Oooh yeah!
Oooh yeah!
Oooh yeah!
Oooh yeah!
Oooh yeah!
Oooh yeah!
Track Name: Pakistan Man
The scientist said all of this
Stuff that’s around us
It is made of
Subatomic, elemental
On the tip on the tip of a pencil
On the tip of a pencil, on the tip of a pencil
On the tip of a pencil, soft and gentle

He said I’ve come here to perform a test
To prove what I’m sayin
Oh I gotta prove what I’m sayin
If I can’t then there is no equation
No relation
No solution
It’s just an illusion
We are stuck in confusion
We are lost and confused
And that’s the truth Ruth

A magic man from Pakistan
appeared in the shadows
he just appeared in the shadows
Like the ghost of the gallows
He said we are here to provide the earth
a reason to crumble
she needs a reason to move on
she’s been doin this too long
Track Name: Jammers Of The Jam
We are the jammers of the jam AHHH!
We play our music when we can

We are the livers of the life
We'll take your livers out with a knife

We can't explain it to you
It will mean nothing to you any who
Any time
Any place
Take your face
and face to space
look at the sky
what do you see?
Seven stella nova in a fountain of translucency.

oooh!
oooh!
LIFE!

(12 string solo 16 bars)
We are the Children Of The Light AHHH!
We are the masters of the night

We are the brightness of the sun
We are the bubble of the gum

We can't explain it to you
It will mean nothing to you any who
Any time
Any place
Take your face
and face to space
look at the sky
what do you see?
Seven stella nova in a fountain of translucency.

(ooh ah breadown)

We are the jammers of the jam
We play our music when we can

We are the breathers of the breath
We are dyers of the death

We are the singers of the song
We are the writers of the wrong.

We are the givers of the gift
We are the grifters of the grift.
