man vs. time (12 rounds)

from by the Doorman



The finger-strummed acoustic guitar was already recorded on November 12th 2006 (exceptional archival feat; there have also been years I did not even write the chords down..) on 4-track! Added vocals and piano in 2017. Song is also included on the 'Tape-Recorded; for the lo-fi enthusiast' cassette. There it ends with commentary on a Max Baer vs Tony Galento boxing game.


run back towards the home plate
she has a see-through
I wish I knew her

a gunshot in the backyard
his eyes are piercing
he missed a soda can

no-one understands you
just try to memorize
the names of Family Ties
and then Mallory started shooting crystal meth

she saw I was looking really sad
man versus time
a patient’s central line
infected by a pornographic
check your water supply
and then you find a way
to leave your lover behind
she was all you needed
