  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Attractive/handsome full-color CD of our album Pony Steps! Contains lyric sheet with band photo so you can recognize us in the street and sing along at our shows or do The Old Rochelle karaoke or get lyrics tattooed on your back (or front?). Comes in full-color slip jacket as seen. You can pretend it's a tiny record, or pretend that you're a giant listening to a normal-person-sized record as you wonder where such a giant as yourself fits in in this society! I personally would use my gigantic size for good, but, you do you. Artwork and design by Bucky Fereke.

Hidin’ out in the west coast
You found the people who would care most
Tied your picture with a rubber band...

Had a model life, then transposed
Read your story and took notes
They think it’s easy, they don’t understand...

What’s the reason for you traveling so far?
You’re always by yourself, my dear,
No matter where you are
And, oh, forgiveness, you know it comes so hard
But still you’re hiding out by the railways
Shooting scars...

Then one day you’d stop to need such help
Realized only you can love yourself
Even stars explode into a cloud...

“You got to build yourself a new life”
Said the stranger with the blue eyes
Then he disappeared into the crowd…


It’s not that far,
It’s not that far...
