Kimberly said don't lose your head you wouldn't be better off dead loosen the reigns if she complains don't get yourself all wrapped up in chains well, she never really said it but she might as well have Kimberly knows anything goes she tries to keep me on my toes sometimes she waits or hesitates sometimes she just blows off our dates well, she does it all the time I know she doesn't mean to she's got her high beam headlamps and her day-glo eyes got me diving in a riverbed that never dries she's got a new wave heart and a disco mind I don't know a thing about her so she's just my kind
Turn Me On 02:45
you won’t find your pleasure wincing at the slightest sign of pain you won’t see your treasure peering through sunglasses in the rain you’re running from the sun and missing all the fun you won’t fix your wagon leaving it to dry rot in its place you won’t slay the dragon petrified to look it in its face you’re running from the sun and missing all the fun the road is long, the pavement’s rough but those who are of stronger stuff let no one know they’ve had enough they go to sleep but never rest knowing the journey is a test that fails all but the very best you won’t be a dancer wasting time by holding up the wall you won’t find the answer making like there’s no question at all you’re running from the sun and missing all the fun
Just a Tool 02:14

Popcorn began as a vehicle for legendary local front man Craig Downs and was my first project with drummer Eric Moore, but neither fellow was long for the band. Ultimately Popcorn mutated into a sort of refinement of the recently demised Lemonade with a new drummer (Dan Stuvland) and some swapping of roles (Danimal switched from bass to full time lead vocals while I abandoned guitar for bass). "Manik" Myk Thompson stayed on lead guitar, and we played a variety of originals - some new, some leftover from Lemonade and other projects, some to rear their heads yet again when Eric Moore, "Manik" Myk and I joined forces yet again in Rocket Park, which shared a similar aesthetic of hard, concise pop with occasional flights of fancy. We never did any professional recording, just enough ambitious four-track basement demos to fill out an album. Enjoy these now sounds for pop people!
