    Join Ratboys in celebrating their 10th Anniversary with a brand new live performance and retrospective film airing on April 29th on Bandcamp.

    Filmed and recorded on the floor at Schuba’s Tavern in Chicago, Ratboys transformed the club into a cozy living room for the show, evoking memories of their earliest, most intimate D.I.Y. performances.

    Watch as the band performs songs from across their discography and as they reminisce on ridiculous tales from the road, meeting by chance, and time spent growing into their sound.

lyrics

Close my ears
Eyes go down the river
Lights are clear
They’re working to catch my view
Walking down the shore
I’m trying to meet New Hampshire
But, New England is mean
I really wish that it weren’t true

Left a six-pack of Heineken on her grave
The world can hardly wait

Take my meaning
And throw it in the river
If it drowns
I guess it’s not a witch
I love to dream
Of her breath of heaven
‘Cause life is not a maze
It’s just a straight line ending in a ditch

Left a six-pack of Heineken on her grave
The world can hardly wait

Can the preacher
Ever really reconcile me?
‘Cause my sins
They reach so far and wide
And maybe hell
Maybe it’s just a waiting room
Or maybe it’s a place
Where the cowards run and hide

‘Cause all I know is that I left a six-pack of Heineken on her grave
The world can hardly wait
