Vacation To Helheim

by The Palatines

    Using a little South Texas chicano-ry we cut this bad boy onto 7' records and then had them shrunk down to the standard 7" you know its good (patent pending)

    A limited amount of these were forged in the fires of Hel, aka The Rio Grande Valley. They are yellow and red and cool AF

Track Name: Too Poor
too poor to go to school
I got no money so I can't dress cool
with faded shorts and these torn up shoes
baby baby you know I'm too poor for school

"don't come back till you get a clue
and if you do the kids will laugh at you"
no more free lunch now I've got no food
baby baby you know I'm too poor for...

the dress code was clear
and you're outside the rules
if you can't afford jeans then
you're through, it's true,
and all the kids are laughing at you

too poor to go to school
a simple fact that I can't control
they sent me home with a fucking note
hey lady you know he's too poor for...

I spend all day sleeping
with nothing to do
I think I'm going crazy
I'm missing homeroom

too poor to go to school

they're laughing at you
Track Name: Hikikomori
I'm just a shut in, I've been shut out
I'm gonna shut up
cuz I'm a shut out, I've been shut down
I'm gonna shut up

everybody says I've gotta get on out and live
every time I try I die
cuz I can't catch a win

Track Name: All I Need
I'm pleading now don't go away
I'll tell you why if you will stay
I've been a fool but I can be cool
if I could talk to you
I would make it up

but you're leaving
you won't say goodbye
yeah you're going
will it make you cry
to see me again
to preface the end
can we go back and fix what went wrong

this time I won't let anything get in the way
of telling you the things that I wanted to say
I'm missing you so bad I can't sleep
all your pictures I keep
on the 'stand so you're next to me

It's not the same as sharing the same room you are
your smile when you know that I'm going too far
I still can see your eyes there on me
parting the sea
reminding me why I bleed

all I needed was to see you again
all I needed was a friend
time's insistent
it'll beat you in the end
when all you're left are your regrets
Track Name: You'll Remember Me
I should have been kissed that night
I should have started a fight
did I throw everything I had away
when I spoke my mind

I shouldn't let it bother me
I sabotage everything I need
so I might as well let it all go
and wreck the scene

It's going down
'cause I never learned to walk away
and the one thing I should never say
comes out of me
I'm falling down
so look away from the mess you see
or the next time I will make sure you remember me

I should have been kissed that night
why didn't I start a fight
'cause I'll throw everything I had away
to prove I'm right
you really shouldn't bother me
I sabotage everyone I meet
so I might as well let it all go
and wreck this scene

Yeah the next time I will make sure you remember me
Track Name: To The Cleaners
falling down is a chronic game
you play the part to gain sympathy
you own the role, sell the pain
bear the fruit of the suffering

when nothing works to relieve it
an endless life of "just give in"
growing old, its all in vain
"burn me fast and blow the ash away" he said

I wanna flow through the fire
and the life that transpired
and it comes in waves that push me
across the deepest end
I'll never see the light again

nothing will change
you can't relate
and you make yourself believe it
who will blow the ash away
when there's nothing left to see here
Track Name: Vacation To Helheim
I'm chained and bound to the place I sleep
cold hands draw me to the muddy deep
Wretched, festered I am cursed
get me a doctor or a nurse

oh fuck my lungs are losing air
I'm facing death's alluring stare
I'm calling out to all the gods
I don't know how much time I've got

Going on Vacation to Helheim

The ground rumbles beneath my feet
Valkyries have my soul to keep
and to my doom I'm flown away
a hellish tomb is where I'll stay
