about

Eef Burlington, Vermont

In 1994, Eef rampaged, making indie/punk/folk music in Burlington, VT. After a couple albums and ramshackle, inebriated live shows with the likes of Sebadoh & Palace Brothers, they moved on to other things. Following a 20 year hiatus, the three original memebers have risen from a deep slumber with new anthems and a revitalized disquietude. ... more

Track Name: Ocean is Broken
My father told me there'd be girls like you
I guess my dad knew hard times, too
The ocean has broken a lot of boats
The ocean has broken a lot of boats
The ocean's been breaking boats for a long time
I've got a lean king heartstring
Memory of you talking all insane
I've got a Lite-Brite nightlife
Feeling I can't remember your name
I've got a big ship pink slip
Vision of me leaving on a train
And all the good times start to sound the same
As the bad ones
I've been sleeping like a new champ
And working like a tube amp
And aching in my fingers
Killing in the living room
And itching to be moving
Not telling what I'm doing
I'm digging like a stinger
And breaking up about way too
Glowing like an oil lamp
And sticking like an implant
I'm stumbling like an old tramp
And driving like an on ramp
The ocean's been breaking boats for a long time
Track Name: Guys
I was getting pretty good at the game
Just one of the girls
Probably thinking the same old storyline
Out of my mind
Tell her about how the boys never cry
I’m just thinking my baby goodbye
Still love her so but she doesn’t know
Still dreaming of somebody else
Lay it down but never let go of yourself
Nice guys never go for the kill
A superstar never made it sitting still
Getting ready for a night on the town
She’s so young and she won’t back down
Let’s rock it again while we still can
Oh oh I love her so much
I tremble every time that we touch
American style; a millionaire smile
Still dreaming of somebody else
Lay it down but never let go of yourself
Nice guys never go for the kill
A superstar never made it sitting still
Track Name: You Home
Cars and trains and rain and a song
I met you at the station I’ll take you home
We hate the band but love the song
They love the sun but hate the rain
They’re wrong they’re wrong the song the song the song
It’s hard when a train stops moving
Stories to tell no one listening
Morning waiting strange homecoming
You were twixt and between here and
And gone and gone too long and gone you home
They’re wrong and gone they’re wrong you home home home
At your apartment you were alone
I’ll take you home I’ll take you home
Track Name: Girls
When you feel like things are crashing down
And we’ve all been there before
There’s a train that makes a stop at your back door
When you’re too blind to even see
It’s the only way to be
And your only choice is coming back for more
And the dream it never stops
Even when you tell the cops
They just look at you like you were never there
And you were way too drunk to drive
But you made it home alive
Perhaps the girls all think you’re crazy
But you don’t even care
When you feel like things are crashing down
And we’ve all been there before
There’s a train that makes a stop at your back door
And the dream it never stops
Even when they call the cops
They just look at you like you were never there
And you were way too drunk to drive
But you made it home alive
Perhaps the girls all think you’re crazy
But you don’t even care
Track Name: Roil & Churn
I went out on the sea until the sky turned black
If I shaved my beard would it ever return?
A penny in a fountain and now you want it back
Tea water boils while the ocean roils and churns
And churns, churns, churn
If I drop an anchor could I ever get it back?
If I hoisted a sail would I ever return?
My cat loves my beard and my cat is black
He digs deep in my jaw and these memories return
Return, return, return, return
A penny in a fountain and now you want it back
A diamond has lost its rough
And in the new shine your eyes burn
I went out on the sea until the sky turned black
Went out on the sea could I ever return?
Return return return return return return return return return
Track Name: My New Mix Tape
Can't keep my mind from thinking of times
When that beautiful girl was mine
We used to walk hand-in-hand down the block
The other guys would just stand there and gawk
We'd make ‘em talk
She was my Nancy I was her Sid
We loved each other more than anybody else did
Her sister said that I was no good
But she was jealous and misunderstood
She broke my heart when she told me goodbye
And now she's going with some other guy
I’m glad she told me that we’d always be friends

‘Cause someday I’m gonna find a way
To get her back again
I used to drive her to the diner at dawn
We used to sunbathe on her parents front lawn
I’d make her mix tapes all the time on cassette
I've got a new one, it just might be my best one yet
The first song is Don't Let's Start
The final song is Love Will Tear Us Apart
She broke my heart when she bid me adieu
I bet he doesn't make her mix tapes too
I'm glad she told me that we’d always be friends
‘Cause someday I'm gonna find a way
To get her back again
I'm gonna get her back again
Someday I’ll get her back again
I'm gonna get her back again
Track Name: My Best Calamity
Bet I don’t know what you’ve seen
Bet you can’t explain it to me
I’ve been tired so I get bored
It’s been a while snow lightning door
Vague lax lines offend
Your sensibilities plead for coherence
But it’s been a long snake burning out
Just like the ones the candles tell about
My best calamity she’s my scout
My best calamity she’s mask out out
This is a powder keg atmosphere
There’s spit in my lungs and smoke in my beer
And it’s been a long snake burning out
Just like the ones the candles tell about
But she’s watching out where I shouldn’t go
She’s watching out where I shouldn’t go
I think I’m going out
I bet you don’t know what I mean
Bet I can’t explain it to seem right
My best calamity she’s my scout
My best calamity she’s mask out out
Track Name: Sugar High
I like milk when my cereal turns it brown
A sugar bowl on the top to wash it down
It tastes so sweet on my spoon of cereal
The sugar high never felt so ethereal
Let's not talk about the things that we don't like
It's too easy to get really negative
Instead let's talk about the things that turn us on
At least there's positive left there when we're gone
I like to sleep really really really really late
And all the urgent things will have to wait
Rub my back 'cause it makes me feel really good
Rub my feet 'cause it's better than Hollywood
Track Name: Time, The Enemy
Time, the enemy
And sleep, the accomplice
My dreams reveal my ignorance
But I've got a plan
Another example of madness
Forgotten works
Left by jerks like you and me
Time, the enemy
