An old, forgotten 4-track cassette demo


Simi Valley Sherri - We interrupt your private life to dig up buried bones
Cast shadows on your doorstep and catch you on the phone
You left a place of infamy and longed for the mundane
To ensure your anonymity you changed your name

Simi Valley Sherri - So you ran from the valley of death
And the acid casualties you shook
Were sent by the man with the plan
To take his people to the center of the earth
But he couldn't find the mystery hole
A petty criminal called The Soul
More Scientologist than Christ
Taught the art of the credit card heist
Sherri, did you help sew the vest the girls embroidered to show their love?
Like a Guatemalan patchwork quilt with fringes that looked so witchy

But even the deluded come awake
When it's a real killing that they make
So before you took that shape
You had to make your escape

Simi Valley Sherri - Could you still feel the pull
When The Soul was put in jail?
Could you feel vibrations even after Jesus Christ had failed?
Can you understand the reasons why this tale won't ever die?
Even bit part players get what they don't ask for so...see me
