lyrics

Ducats for nothing, nothing
Ducats for nothing, nothing
Ducats, ducats, ducats, ducats
I am so lonesome, lonesome
I am so lonesome, lonesome
Give me something to shade this nothing
I want to spend like a drunken Saudi prince on the birthday of the chick he's courting, chick he's courting
I am so restless, restless
I am so restless, restless
Ducats, ducats, ducats

I'll be the first in line

Bundles of joy in the corner of a store, better snatch them
Before it runs out on us, runs out on us
I am so ready, ready
I am so ready, ready
Open your portals give me some of that synthetic
Tear gas in hand, gonna spray you where you stand
Get a head start on you
So I can gobble bargains
Oh man
All for nothing, nothing
All or nothing, nothing
Ducats, ducats, ducats

I'll be the first in line

It's a nice full fall

I'll be the first in line

"A mesmerizing and inspiring sonic force to be reckoned with" (Indie Round Table)

"A sound that is rich but unsettling; the negative space in the music becomes an instrument in itself." (Audio Reckoning)
