Ok ok so this is "Thattaboy," which is the first single from "Stop Breathing Like That," which is a record that we wrote over the last two years. It comes out on January 23rd.

This is a song about how hard it is to agree on a movie, and also about disordered anxious thought patterns, and also damn sometimes you just straight up cannot be in the same room with a whole bunch of people you love dearly.



She said baby baby why you gotta act so tough
I said dammit baby why you gotta call my bluff
She said the things that you like don't like what I do
Plus there ain't no room in this house for two
I said well then I guess there ain't no moving you
She said thattaboy

And didn't I say I'd never be weary
And if I don't scream then no one will hear me

And now every time I get to the top of the stairs
I know I'm gonna catch you keeping track of my errors
Because nothing comes between a permutation of three
And a villain's an agreeable something to see
And I moved out the house so I guess that's me
They say thattaboy

And did I say I'd never be weary
And If I don't scream then no one will hear me

That's a good boy

He said son why don't you give another movie a shot
As if I'm not already giving all that I got
Because you can't give back what you took and you broke
But if you're forcing a laugh cause I'm making a joke
Then I guess I could be stuck with some pickier folk
I say thattaboy
