Description: Grunge Waltz

A PRIORI/A POSTERIORI is a moveable feast of sounds and ideas for the new roaring 20s. The Granite Countertops emerge from 18 months of sheltering in place with their sixth album of 16 all-new original songs about survival, knowledge, experience, time, life, sickness, health, and annoying insects.

J Neo Marvin and Davis Jones file status reports on remote life, feel the blood run through their own bodies, marvel in horror at the continuing madness around them, and serenade a hideaway with a dynamic range of surprising musical styles.

Former Puncture writers Patty Stirling (co-writer of several other indie classics) and Peter Jones contributed to both the writing of the lyrics and the song performance for Aftermath Limerick.

FILMMAKERS: Key, Time, Tempo, Description added to each song for audiophiles, movie directors or whoever wants to use the music for an original film. We can remove vocals from soundtracks per deposits made on instrumental use per individual contract agreements.


Hungry horny selfish scared

I am the lizard in the desert
I pop out of nowhere
Dry, wide-eyed, and sunbaked
With a small mind always on survival

Hungry horny selfish scared

I'm always darting
To and fro beneath the shadows
I'm in the corner
With a quick forked tongue reaction

Hungry horny selfish scared

I got no filters
I just spit and run in patterns
Still like a statue
Till it's time for a threat display

Hungry horny selfish scared

When I go out hunting
Yummy flies are in my vision
I always keep one eye turning backwards
Scanning any threat behind me

Hungry horny selfish scared

I may be old but I'm not so wise
I got no ethics in my eyes

Hungry horny selfish scared

Underneath your fur and feathers
You've got lizards in your brains
We show up when you lose your ground
Watch you snap your tails
Watch you break your chains

Hungry horny selfish scared

In your amygdalas lizards dwell
So know your lizard and train it well

'Cause he's hungry horny selfish scared...

Stay away...till I can get you.
