about

Al Bundie's Army had big plans for 2014. The goal was to release 12 EPs in 12 months... But things don't often go as planned. Their practice space flooded in early spring.

Though falling short of their initial goal, the band still managed to crank out an album's worth of material spread across 4 EPs. But obvious time constraints led to each release being severely under-promoted.

We're just putting them all together in the same place for the first time.

Track Name: Slutty Cobra
SLUTTY COBRA
(words and music by Sam Evans)

I'm a monster
You're a bitch
With a diseased, rotting clit

You think you're great
You think you're grand
But you're just a fucking cunt
That I can't fucking stand

You think you're special
That's it
You think you're special
I think you're full of shit

You're so cool
You're so slick
You make me so fucking sick

You've got bullshit
Behind each eye
At your funeral
I'll laugh, not cry

You think you're special
That's it
You think you're special
I think you're full of shit
Track Name: Grey and Green
GREY AND GREEN
(words and music by Sam Evans)

Hanging off of one little thread
Dangling over hell
If you came here to save me, get the fuck out
This is me, killing myself

Maybe you see it, maybe you don't
But there's something deep inside of me
Much more than a monster, much more than a beast
It's something no one should see

And I cannot control
The rage in my own soul
And if you think you can be mean
Just remember that my soul is grey and green

Remember that my soul is grey and green

And I try too hard to be a friend
Push 'em all away 'cause I fuck up in the end
And I don't really care what happens to me
So obvious, so plain to see
So to people like me, they don't get to close
And people like me just turn into ghosts

And I cannot control
The rage in my own soul
And if you think you can be mean
Just remember that my soul is grey and green

Remember that my soul is grey and green
Track Name: Only Children Suffer
ONLY CHILDREN SUFFER
(words and music by Sam Evans)

Take a pill and you stare in the mirror
Think that you're seeing the whole world clearer
Sure, there's people dyin', but that don't concern you
Aside from that.. well, what the fuck could you do?

But the planes keep coming and the bombs keep dropping
You're content to just keep on shopping
Unaware of a grizzly truth that the next child dying might belong to you

And only children suffer
Only children suffer
For our mistakes
They're forced to hide, hide away
From a world that won't let them play
And only children suffer

But you don't see the truth, you don't see the light
In your ignorance, you think that you're right
Blind to the fact that you're a hipocrite
And because of your beliefs, there's another dead kid

And you go to church each and every Sunday
Know you're righteous... at least, that's what you say
Can't be bothered the death abroad
Is it because they're not christians or abandoned by god?

Only children suffer
Only children suffer
For our mistakes
They're forced to hide, hide away
From a world that won't let them play
And only children suffer
Track Name: Off Season
OFF SEASON
(words and music by Todd Parker

We're hunting humans in the wilderness of Maine
Two hunts in three nights have failed
But still we eat - tonight we will feast
On a bounty of human entrails

Suit up for battle and head out through the woods
We'll strike like a hammer in the dark
We fight with knives, while they fight with guns
But the forest is our ally in the hunt

They call us savages
They call us cannibals
We call them breakfast, lunch and dinner

They call us savages
They call us cannibals
Their fear will only make their flesh more tender

They call us savages
They call us cannibals
We call them ready to devour

They call us cannibals
They call us savages
They grow more ripe by the hour


They call us savages
They call us cannibals
We call them ready to devour

They call us cannibals
They call us savages
So... we'll...

String up our feast, by her feet, from a tree
Put a slit in her throat, let the mother fucker bleed
Rip out her heart and eat her vital organs raw
Put her carcass on a spit, cook the body till it's charred

Children watch with envy as they douse themselves in blood
Preparing for the day when they will take over the hunt
When suddenly, our prey makes an effort for escape
Pointing towards the children, and firing away
Track Name: Hans Gruber
HANS GRUBER
(words and music by Todd Parker)

From a high rise in downtown LA
Sinister terrorist threats are made
To cover the tracks of a criminal's plot
The crime of the century, if it's pulled off

From out of the dark, the savior of the day
Waiting in the wings in John McClane
Not asking for fortune or asking for fame
Just doing what he has to to make it through the day

Woah-oh
Hans Gruber
Track Name: Arm the Proletariat
ARM THE PROLETARIAT
(words by Todd Parker, music by Adam Gaines/Todd Parker)

Rising up
We'll take this war into the streets
We're second class
With sweaty brows and scraps to eat
We'll take what's ours
Take back the blood we had to bleed
We can rebuild
So let cities crumble to our feet

And on the cross
We'll hang the bloated bourgeois
Because all is lost
Today we'll bring them to their knees
We may be weak
But our numbers bring about our strength
And they can't ignore
The impending class war

Arm the proletariat
And fuck the world
Track Name: Drinking For Two
DRINKING FOR TWO
(words by Adam Gaines/Todd Parker, music by Adam Gaines)

Another day
I wake up out of habit
Put on my clothes
But I can barely stand it

This isn't how
I thought my life would be
But everyday
I wake up bored and lonely

And I wonder why
I feel so dead inside
There's only one thing that I know for certain

Passion's left my life
There's no one by my side
And I could shoot myself, but I refuse

I've got nothing better to do
Than sit around and drink for two
Happiness is only for fools
I'm one man drinking for two

Could have it all
It wouldn't make me happy
Stare at the wall
It drips with apathy, I

Stare at the screen
Lost in another daydream
The fantasy
Seems so real to me

But I sit and wonder why
I feel so dead inside
There's only one thing that I know for certain

There's no one by my side
And cobwebs in my mind
I just wish I could feel something new

I've got nothing better to do
Than sit around and drink for two
Happiness is only for fools
I'm one man drinking for two
Track Name: Deep Six
DEEP SIX
(words and music by Todd Parker)

Sitting by a creek at the side of the road
Reflections of my life on the water below
I'm trying to forget, but I just can't stop

Wondering where thing all when wrong
And why I had been dumb for so long
I guess all this time, I'd been blinded by love

And I'd probably drown myself if the water wasn't cold
More pain just isn't worth the time
Now that I know the truth, I only want to die
At noon today, I lost my mind

Running from the past seven months of my life
Cutting like the steel on the blade of a knife
I quit my job just to clear my head

I had to get away from the real world
Never felt depression so pure
Should be blaming a girl, but I'm blaming myself


And I'd probably drown myself if the water wasn't cold
More pain just isn't worth the time
Now that I know the truth, I only want to die
At noon today, I lost my mind

She'd been doin' blow behind my back
Sneaking off and sleeping with her ex
How could I ignore it for so long?

I feel so pathetic sitting by this creek
I want to be alone, but I shouldn't think
Thinking only breeds destructive thoughts

The will to live is gone
But the will to die is numb
Track Name: Manic Depression
MANIC DEPRESSION
(words and music by Todd Parker)

I'm getting more and more used to the thought
Of a world the exists without me
The thought of death can't phase me anymore

So why should I waste my time in this world
If there is nothing left to live for?
Or more importantly - why should I waste yours?

And as my body hits the floor
I hope I left you wanting more
I hope you know I hurt myself
As some pathetic cry for help

And if I wasn't such a coward
I could find a way to carry out the action
But maybe I'm just afraid of the consequence

The consequence that when I'm gone
Life will still go on so steadily without me
The truth is that I don't matter in the end

And as my body hits the floor
I hope I left you wanting more
I hope you know I hurt myself
As some pathetic cry for help
Track Name: Ghost Bride
GHOST BRIDE
(words and music by Todd Parker)

I see her night
She comes to me in my room
Though she may be dead
She seem so alive

I dug my own grave
By falling in love with her
But a grave suits me fine
If she's by my side

A spirit long dead
Has taught me to feel alive
And showed me a love
That will never die

If her heart could beat
I know it would beat for me
'Cause I see her soul
And emotions run deep

She whispers softly that dead is forever
Dead is forever
And I don't even know her name

Her veil is white
Her gown is a ghostly blue
They glows in the light
'Neath the light of the moon

I look in her eyes
I take her cold hands in mine
And promise that she
Will be my ghost bride
Track Name: The Drums of Gallifrey
THE DRUMS OF GALLIFREY
(words and music by Sam Evans)

Will the drumming ever stop?

It happened on one fateful day
To a little boy from Gallifrey
He gazed into the vortex
And both his hearts turned cold

He saw the whole of everything
But could not handle the futility
So he went and built
The paradox machine

Constant drumming in his head
Would is cease if he were dead?
He yearns to find companions
But he fears he's all alone

Will the drumming ever stop?
Track Name: Ten Years From Now
TEN YEARS FROM NOW
(words and music by Sam Evans)

Everybody
Likes to say
Hey there, buddy
Are you okay?

Whatcha doing?
How you been?
I ain't seen you
Since you know when

I remember you
I believe I remember you

I
I don't care
Cause I
Don't exist anywhere

And I
I hate this town
All these stupid people makes me want to drown

But oh, what a beautiful day
Oh, What a beautiful day

Empty seat next
To me at the bar
They sit down and tell me
They've all gone far

They're outta college
Some have kids
Some are married
And then they said

I remember you
Yes, I believe I remember you

It
It is so sad
So much potential you once had

And you,
You wasted time
Drown your fucking talent drunk and high

But oh, what a beautiful day
Oh, what a beautiful day

But I
I still don't care
It's not that I think life has been unfair

It's just that sometimes sadness
From the past comes welling up in me
And I become so blue
You'd never understand or want to see
Put it down to pick it up
And do it all over again
I can't keep going on like this
I can't win

But oh, what a beautiful day
Oh, what a beautiful day
Track Name: Dum Spiro Spero
DUM SPIRO SPERO
(words and music by Sam Evans)

If I have a chance
Would you let me know?
If we had just one dance
I'd never let you go

And I wonder if you can see
You make me happy to just be me
And I know no other way to say it

I wanna be with you

So come on baby, show me how
We could touch the sky and never look down
I want you, I need you, I'm lonely at night
I want you, I need you, I need the light

I wanna be with you

Then you came to me
You said we could try
But that was just a dream
And I admit that I cried

And I wonder what you think of me
But I don't have to wonder, 'cause you told me
And I know there's someone in the way, but

I wanna be with you

Come on, baby, show me how
We could touch the sky and never look down
I want you, I need you, I'm lonely at night
I want you, I need you, I need the light

I wanna be with you

And I could be your best bet
Or the Romero to your Juliet
And I wish that things were a little bit different
I really wish that we could be

So come on, baby, show me how
We could touch the sky and never look down
I want you, I need you, I'm lonely at night
I want you, I need you, I need the light

I wanna be with you
