Originally released as track 16 of 19 (the sixth song of nine on side B) on the "Dirt Cult Mix Tape Vol. II" cassette in 2009.

This song tells the first third of a story from one day just before I moved to DC in 2008. The second part is more fucked up. And since this took place the same day that Troublemake were recording, the third part of the story is that we wrote and recorded this song just a few hours later.


Woke up and found that my tongue had turned black
Looked up the cause, it's smoking cigarettes by the pack
And poor oral hygiene, drinking too much coffee,
And too many nights spent with drugs and an IV
But also by bismuth, which you can find
In shit like the peptol-bismol I chew up sometimes
So that's what I think I'm gonna blame it on
