Spontaneous Decomposition walking around with nothing in mind no idea it's about your time a disease that is unknown and deadly and will leave you in a pile melting what it does to your body's a crime leaves both nature and science aloof rotting in an instant puddle on the floor bubbling flesh and bones left to fester no pain is felt, so fast skin and muscles congeal into a mess no thoughts go through your head before there was time, already dead the acid comes bursting from ever pore arms, legs and face melt below the door into the hallway your neighbor slips in the shit they say to each other what the fuck is it nothing left to be said everyone knows you're dead landlord cleaning up the mess no security deposit returned
Nothng To See Here i don't tend to talk about politics i'm not going to start now things are still just as fucked as they have ever been what works for you might just not work for me why don't you worry about you and leave the rest of us alone the time taken to worry about shit you can't even change just try to make your life the best that it can be if this town is going to blow then you will be the first to know because bodies will lie broken shrapnelled corpses in the street then there will be nothing more that you need to worry about everything decided for you i guess this is the end nothing left to see here please just move along everyone is dead now and this includes you
Mandatory Sentence committed of a so-called crime, caught in the act again that makes something punishable to the fullest extent of the law always have to walk the line between the thin and narrow but the laws of survival are different, that's something that will never change the handcuffs go on, the door slams shut never to be open again is this really a trial or just a mandatory sentence? a slow walk to the gallows where I'll surely hang no kind of future for me in my days to come they say that I've done it once and I will surely do it again can't say for sure, but I guess that we will never know not even given a chance to right the wrongs that I've made getting sent to the front line, the punishment is so severe

Sump Pump Records was founded in 1998 by Dan Hutchison, Brian Wiksell and Bill Heard. We released a vinyl 7" EP for Why Make Clocks in 1998 and a full-length CD for Chad O'Neall in 2000...then we got preoccupied w/our bands.

Now, it's a 5 way partnership between Dan, Brian, Will Tarbox, Chuck Hoffman & Tom Reelitz releasing records w/a DIY approach, by ourselves and other bands we love.
