about

Arms Aloft Eau Claire, Wisconsin

We are four young men from Wisconsin who hold down often-times dreary jobs. Our favorite haunt is a modified factory floor in the industrial sector of our hometown, where we practice, record songs, and make plans. We've put out a couple of records and toured at home and in Europe. We really want to play in your town. ... more

Track Name: A Psalm For Our Jobs & Apartments
O' Let the numbers
We type into the ATM
Become the names by which we're known
O' let the measure
of the width of our new TV sets
display to the neighbors
the depths to which we've grown
And of the plugged-ins
and records
Our rosewood and our strings
Of our brand loyalties, in your name, we sing

O' let us sell them
Ourselves, whole or in pieces
For the price they've kindly placed upon our heads
Lest we hesitate and see the day
When upon re-evaluation,
It's crossed out, halved and rewritten in red
And of our value
As an asset
To the company
Of our entry level positions we sing

O' Let the leeches
The rats and our brave captains
Deliver us from persecution and from flood
Grant them fortune
When they convene below the deck
To bet our medicines on hands of five card stud
Of the birdshot
The razors
The downers and the bleach
Of our polite if hasty exits we will sing

O' God save these things!
Track Name: The Best Ever Death Metal Band In Denton
the best ever death metal band out of denton
were a couple of guys, who'd been friends since grade school.
one was named cyrus, and the other was jeff.
and they practiced twice a week in jeff's bedroom.

the best ever death metal band out of denton
never settled on a name.
but the top three contenders, after weeks of debate,
were satan's fingers, [The Cesspool Lifeguards], and the hospital bombers.

jeff and cyrus believed in their hearts they were headed
for stage lights and leer jets, and fortune and fame.
so in script that made prominent use of a pentagram,
they stenciled their drumheads and guitars with their names.

this was how cyrus got sent to the school
where they told him he'd never be famous.
and this was why jeff,
in the letters he'd write to his friend,
helped develop a plan to get even.
when you punish a person for dreaming his dream,
don't expect him to thank or forgive you.
the best ever death metal band out of denton
will in time both outpace and outlive you.
hail satan!
hail satan tonight!
hail satan!
hail hail!
