about

Flip Rushmore Minneapolis, Minnesota

The route between Minneapolis and Nashville is daunting for drivers without an appreciation for so-called flyover country, but it brought together an indie quartet — Alex Smith, Dan Klauer, Nick Spielman and Adam Szczepaniak — that founded a band and recorded a full-length debut, Big, If True (released June 1, 2018). ... more

Track Name: DDT
Wife doesn't wanna be seen with me
When I'm packing
Lord help the man who crosses me
When I'm packing

Yes, I know my rights
Whatcha think, I'm dumb?
Whatcha think
I'm not onto your game?
As a man of faith
My compass leads me North
And I pray ...

I got my AR-15
My Diet Dr. Thunder
What more could I need?
I can't work no more
And the funny part is
It's just little old me
Stephen from Strawberry Creek
And they wanna hear my voice

Favorite store got robbed last week
Now I'm packing
God bless the thug that crosses me
When I'm packing

Yes, I've paid the price
I lost my job
Lost my leg last February
We can talk about pain

CHORUS

Used to read the Journal
'Til they filled it up with lies
Got old friends 'cross the county line
That I don't recognize
The sheriff told me,
"Leave the gun at home"

CHORUS
Track Name: Hold It Together
If I die before I wake
Take me back to wintertime
The moment I first saw your face
You put your hand in mine
It's been so many years, I forgot
Just how pretty you are

Keep my feet in pace with yours
I always hated exercise
But I would walk 900 miles
Before I'd lead a separate life, and
It's up to you to
Tell me when you want me to leave

I broke into your room
I wasn't looking for you

I'm holdin' it together, but
I can't keep it together, girl
Holdin' it together, but
I can't keep it together, girl
Holdin' it together, but
I can't keep it together, girl
Holdin' it together, but ...

If you lied right to my face
I would be a happy man
That would mean that you love me
Enough to think I'd understand
The weight of the world, according
To the hole in your brain

You say that I like to write
About everything except you
But that is not exactly true
I simply lacked the fortitude
And now you'll hear, the red's
Coming out of the blues

I wrote every single song
So I could sing it wrong

CHORUS

So glad you're not with him
It doesn't mean that he's not looking

If I die before I wake
Take me back to wintertime
The moment I first saw your face
You put your hand in mine
And I ...
Track Name: Aspen, CA
I can't get anyone to watch
The Ben Stiller Show with me
It's probably why the thing got cancelled
No romance, no dancefloor
Every time I turn on the TV
I see my reflection briefly
Before it flickers into a movie
Don't matter if I'm fake or real

Bought a one-way ticket to Aspen, California
I was born and formed with nostalgia
In the worst way
In the words that say, "Yeah!"
I'll do my time
Before my time does me in

Ripped a little Beatle
When I tried to fit the needle pretty
(Into a hallway)
Friends say I be needy
But it's Janice who be overfeeding
(That's what they all say)
Built in '92
Razed in '93
They took all the lovin' out
And when they put it back in
There's none left for me

CHORUS
