i had a bottle of asprin in my medicine cabinet one hundred tablets and now they’re all gone (sure i ate all your pills but it's no big deal)_ and now i feel cheated (i'll give you two dollars so you can buy another bottle) and now they're all gone (there’s no excuse for acting really petty) and now i feel cheated (you're so pathetic you're giving me a headache) you hate me (no i don't) you hate me (no i don't) you hate me (shut the fuck up!) you say: "what difference does it make who ate the bottle of asprin" (you know i never said that so take it back) but this is only the tip of the iceberg it's the straw that broke my spine (you're giving me a headache, yeah) cause it's mine mine mine mine mine mine mine!!! (you're giving me a headache, baby) i had a bottle of asprin that was totally eaten by someone i trusted and now they’re all gone chorus!

spilled on red creek cobblestone ('cause my knees 'cause my knees hurt knees hurt) 15 seconds alone ('cause my knees 'cause my knees hurt knees hurt) oh you said that i'm ok the most coolest thing that i ever heard someone say devon almost smiled at me today 'cause my knees 'cause my knees hurt knees hurt you saw me tear my favorite pants ('cause my knees 'cause my knees hurt knees hurt) you said i'm fine and i said thanks ('cause my knees 'cause my knees hurt knees hurt) oh i'm so olive green and you're the coolest thing that i've ever seen chorus! oh we're far beyond the "hi how are you"s we're almost one in biker shorts shoulder straps water bottles duffel bags because my knees hurt... chorus!

In the Know 02:07
as you drove through illinois i was super paranoid sneaking out of our garage head to toe in camouflage but no! i’m never gonna let you know while you we’re pumping gasoline i spent a day in quarantine writing run-on paragraphs in the bedroom aftermath but no! i’m never gonna let you know your toothpaste your mouthwash your hairbrush your dental floss your washcloth your lotion your saline solution all of your stuff is staring back at me it makes me feel guilty but i’m not gonna crack…

Astronomy 01:52
you sat on the blanket like you were stuck in a tarpit (you stick out more than you realize) the camera was a mess and i didn't know how to stop it (turn the safety latch counterclockwise) i looked through the lens and took a peek at your plum stockings (laid out like a net of fire flies) while you were reading steven hawking (astronomy) and i was soaked and you were freezing like we stepped out of a mausoleum the telescope was out of focus but we were drunk and so we didn't notice (astronomy) (i don't listen to me myself) i tried to take a photo but the instructions were all in spanish (pongo su urino en el bano) so we just romped in the sand until you told me that you were famished (I'm as hungry as a rhino) perhaps in the morning we can go out for breakfast (two eggs and a liter of espresso) then we can crawl along the beach to look for your necklace chorus!

i guess you call it homocide if so than i'm guilty as charged and i will live my life at large because i killed sting i have to admit i like outlandos d'amour only because of the drums and guitar work but what the fuck was up with those pretentious album titles sting can go suck my zenyatta mondatta call the police i killed sting he didn't feel a thing i stabbed him in the lung while he was doing yoga i asked him if it stung he just grunted like abe vigoda roxanne was an decent song even though his lyrics are so dumb he would throw words like mephistopheles into songs for no apparent reason 1, 2, 3 i killed sting it was as easy to learn as my A, B, C's he didn't fight back because everybody knows that rock stars can't act i killed sting like the kwisatz haderach call the police i killed sting he didn't feel a thing he sang that stupid song with rod stewart and bryan adams he deserved to die just like rod stewart and bryan adams i killed sting because i was jealous he is so much smarter than the rest of us you and me are just mere mortals and sting used to be a high school english teacher he's so well read (now he's dead!)

about

Bitesize Oakland, California

From 1997-2009, the San Francisco Bay Area’s Bitesize brought a little bit of sickness to indie-pop, filling their otherwise perfect two-minute long pop gems with awkward stops and starts, weird bursts of guitar noise, quirky vocals, and lots of jumping up and down. The band released two critically acclaimed CDs (The Best of Bitesize & Sophomore Slump) and received college radio airplay nationwide ... more
