Shuffle Song Of The Day (1/14/19): “Sasquatch .22” By Bay Faction

“Sasquatch .22” is a song by the indie rock band Bay Faction that appears on their 2015 self titled Ep. This band originates from my home state of Massachusetts, and I heard about them through word of mouth from some of my friends who are involved in the local Boston music scene. They all went to Berkley College Of Music and I always find it cool to see local acts that I’ve known for years start to get more and more recognition. As for this song, it has all of the common indie themes you’d expect, most notably the tempo changes between slow and soft to fast and loud, no real pattern of rhythm in the lyrics, and discussing things like girls and drinking. I especially like the lyric, “It’s Tuesday, and I’m wasted like a Friday night. It’s a cycle, a vicious cycle”. As somebody who often finds myself in the same predicament, I couldn’t have related to that more the first time I heard it. If you’re into that indie/emo sound I suggest checking these guys out. They just released an album a few weeks ago called Florida Guilt that’s pretty good but a little bit different this song, which I must add I have no idea what it has to do with sasquatch. He says he might kill himself with a .22 rifle so I get that part of the title, but nothing about Bigfoot anywhere. But hey, that’s indie rock for ya.

LYRICS


I started catching feelings for the girl
That I’m currently having sex with so
It’s safe to say we don’t talk anymore
Unless of course were having sex then I’m
Watching her from the back seat put on makeup
And get her shirt on right
I’m pretty sure this isn’t what my dad had in mind the year before
When he made me go to college in the south shore
Doesn’t care that I go to college

It’s Tuesday
And I’m wasted like Friday night
When I’ll be wasted it’s all a cycle a vicious cycle and I
I’m just petrified

So I called the girl
That I’m currently having sex with and I said I loved her
But it was over facebook
She came over that night
We started having sex and it felt fine
Up until she fucking left and I realized
That I tell a damn good lie

It’s Tuesday
And I’m wasted like Friday night
When I’ll be wasted it’s all a cycle a vicious cycle and I
I’m just petrified

I’m petrified when I’m 30
I’ll buy a .22
Waste myself in the back of her Camry
Put it to the back of my mouth and scream out your name
Pull the trigger and realize that the seats aren’t easy to clean
‘Cause it’ll be a Tuesday

And I’m wasted like Friday night
When I’ll be wasted it’s all a cycle a vicious cycle and I
I’m just petrified
