about

Run For It Marty was a band made up of Ira Merrill on vocals/guitar, Steve Gale on drums, and Terry Mattson on bass. RFIM released this one solid, but very raw album (recorded by Terry Mattson, mixed by Jack Endino, and mastered by Martin Feveyear), but then Ira lost his job and it all went to hell ;)

We chose the band name because Back To The Future is Steve's favorite movie, and the album title, "Spasmodic Intermittent Hesitation" is a technical term Ira heard his Pop say when talking about the engine of a truck. That title also seemed to illustrate what a lot of the songs are about - a tense push/pull to and away from doing something with your life, and the starting/stopping of relationships.

Public Storage
-----------------

Save what I gave her under glass full of favor
In a world where we're braver and we give what we get
I'm out of gumption down the drain up the junction
Girl our love start to function like a pretty toilet

I'm right you're wrong
Goodnight to our sweet song
You're right I'm wrong
This spite for what we've done...GO!

You can live in a bubble you can rip through the rubble
Seems a whirlwind of trouble comes whichever you choose
Sweet Southern Comfort dig you down into the dirt
In a hurricane of hurt and no love left to lose

I'm right you're wrong
Goodnight to our sweet song
You're right I'm wrong
This spite for what we've done

None ever swayed a heart so broken
Not from Seattle to Hoboken
None ever caved a will so strong

Save what I gave her under glass full of favor
In a world where we're braverrrrrrr.....
...oh my god!!!

I'm right you're wrong
Goodnight to our sweet song
You're right I'm wrong
This spite for what we've...
Track Name: The Ballad of Alison Headley
The Ballad of Alison Headley
---------------------------------

Alison Headley she really writes deadley
She'll be coming round from a Texas town
So you better get readley

She's a memory collector a fine detail inspector
She's putting on her free and self discovery
To let the fearless infect her

She's sort of orange and kind of blue
Does lots of things you'd never do
She keeps a blog she got a dog named Maude
She's anchored to

She's a South-By fixture she's not given to strictures
But you better watch out or you'll end up online
In one of her pictures

Cuz Alison Headley travels on steadley
She's a truth informer in her little arm warmers
She's a rock and punk medley

She's sort of orange and kind of blue
Does lots of things you'd never do
She keeps a blog she got a dog...

So many are so bored play-it-safe their lord
But she is able
Reward come thrust your sword through waiting on
Embedded tables

She's sort of blue and kind of orange
But nothing frickin rhymes with orange
Not motorbilkes not bowling strikes
No way we know what she likes

She likes beads!

Yeah
Oh oh oh...
Track Name: She Will Trampoline You
She Will Trampoline You
----------------------------

Dumb boy in stupid sweater
Destroy and then make better please
Gershwin and scotch and soda
Piano he don't know the keys

And when there's nothing left to dream
She seems so ordinary
Some songs are deader left unsung

She will trampoline she will trampoline
She will trampoline you
She will trampoline she will trampoline
She will trampoline you

Get close smile for the camera
Stiff does of Mary-gone-round-the-bend
Dissed at the dinner table
Soft eyes and senseless simple friend

When they were sitting in his car
His heart came close to speaking
She talked about a guy named Troy...

She will trampoline she will trampoline
She will trampoline you
She will trampoline she will trampoline
She will trampoline you

Damnation's roses closing in her cryogenic hands
She'll never notice baby
Call in when the shuttle lands

She will trampoline she will trampoline
She will trampoline you
She will trampoline she will trampoline
She will trampoline you
She will trampoline she will trampoline
She will trampoline you
She will trampoline she will trampoline
She will trampoline youwooowoooooooo
Track Name: Accidental Meth & Dishevelment
Accidental Meth and Dishevelment
----------------------------------------

Veronica I hate it when I...
But you love me so
So what is love that you have
Any left to give me when you know
I'm falling through the cracks now
And every step I take I trip
Come to hell and kiss my lips so cold

Accidental meth and dishevelment
Never meaning to give in

The itch comes on like poison ivy
Or some otherworldly lust
The beast released it ain't like
Making love just raped and murdered trust
And everybody left me
But you seem just like June to John
The value you have placed upon my soul

Accidental meth and dishevelment
Never mean to give in
Never want to hurt you lover again
Incidental wrath and debauchery
Alice gave me the tart
But you don't wanna
Pray for the death of my heart

The slow waiting the abating fix
I keep caving for these stones and sticks

And everybody left me
But you stretch out your angel wings
The saving face of loving stings my soul

Accidental meth and dishevelment
Never mean to give in
Never want to hurt you lover again
Incidental wrath and debauchery
Alice gave me the tart
And I owe everything to you...

I know you hate it when I lie
I know you hate it when I lie
I know you hate it when I lie
I know you hate it when I lie
Track Name: Pink Hair
Pink Hair
-----------

Lay back stand up stay there will the world care oh
Fall hard discard your heart on the rocks
Pink hair she's twice your share of the nightmare oh
Beautiful paradox

He can't go on
Living has never been easy
Seattle son

Still brood kill food that dude in Lebowski oh
Boyfriends she sends into the abyss
Makes fools of jewels nobody knows how she oh
Two-times him a one-way kiss

He can't go on
Loving her never is easy
Seattle son
Nothing...
No one...
Someone...
Come on...
Anybody...

Mystery why he stays with she
There's no agree to disagree
Collects like ashtrays chokes like smoke
The acid dropped him (but he's still broke)

He can't go on
Leaving has never been easy
Seattle son
Loving her leaving him queasy
He can't go on
Living has never been easy
Seattle son
Nothing...
No one...
Someone...
Come on...
Anybody...
Track Name: Piss & Vinegar
Piss & Vinegar
-----------------

Still searching for fine still towing a line
Still fighting the gravity of just giving in
Nay fortune and fame each day so the same
Each everything sunk in sinisfaction again
No sugar for starting over
Maybe you can find a four leaf clover

So place your bet lose or get
You're not done yet you still got it in you
Years you ran to boy from man
You're still running and you still got it in you

Mud perfectly clear Vicodin and beer
What will you do when you're sober enough to see
Reality crash beard and a moustache
Ten pounds overweight and life anonymously
Time's joking you're in the punchline
Hits you take won't help you find the sunshine

So place your bet cast your net
On your dark get set you still got it in you
Years you ran to boy from man
Fill that coffee can you still got it in you

Nobody else can stay your soul on fire
You gotta give up control to take control
Yeah yeah

Place your bet lose regret
You're not done yet you still got it in you
Years you ran boy from man
You're running and you still...
Place your bet press reset
You're not done yet
Track Name: Daltonien
Daltonien
-----------

Kaleidoscope cancer and hope sunrise sunset
The poison cures for sure unsures liquid forget
Could be whatever you wanted whatever you wanted
If you only wanted to do anything

Yeah
Don't you wanna restore you
The demon has grown
Just exorcise it before you
Turn into stone

The colors fade the sad parade the glories dim
His life was taken but don't you give up your life for him
You know he wouldn't want it oh he wouldn't want it
No he wouldn't want it

Yeah
And your friends open-door you
Feel so alone
Just neutralize it before you
Become a clone

For all that you've been through
What's done what can undo
Your life's awaiting you

Yeah
Don't you wanna restore you
Leave it alone
Like all the soldiers before you
Flee the war zone
Come on let me implore you...

Don't lets be afraid to kiss all this adieu
Can't change the past but you can change you
Track Name: Mysterious He
Mysterious He
-----------------

Present is here for us
Futuresaurus died and left alone
Flowers past and wonders
Chance and blunders unknown

Leaning into ten more lashes
Trips over the cracks and crashes
Where is beauty for the ashes

Treading air as you bless this disaster
Guess you know you're my foe and my master
These days your ways dizzy me
Mysterious mysterious mysterious he

Cold contrition court adjourning
Give it gas the engine burning
Holding out for hope returning

Dead-end dreams always seem so inviting
It's wall-to-wall but I can't read the writing
One two...three fail...seven can see
Mysterious mysterious mysterious he
Yeah

Present is here for us
Futuresaurus died and left alone
Flowers past and wonders
Chance and blunders
Hearts of clay and stone
I love her and she loves me
And there's a joy that that can bring
But time is still a poison pill
And what's the point of anything

Yeah...
Yeah...

Haven't figured it all out yet
The more I learn the less I get
Track Name: Sons of Scorn
Sons of Scorn
-----------------

What time did the rail reluctantly machine the breeze
These were only words of promise merrily they tease
Sing it again and I'm on my knees

Nevermind the man behind the curtain Mr. Fogg
His outstanding apparatus killed the underdog
Show us your mind we're waiting
We know your kind and it's hating
Why were we born

Sons of scorn
Sons of scorn
Sons of scorn
Sons of scorn

We were created to be
Enemies of enemies and
High hopes and twisted ropes and
Pills and soaps and freezes frozen
Ankles and summer trousers
William reads for hours and hours and then...

He shouts black at the heart attack
And declares a season of youth

Look at me now I ain't scared of you
Swinging a rod with no follow through
What can we try for time wasted
Maybe we'll cry 'cause we've tasted
Poppies and porn

We're sons of scorn
Sons of scorn
Sons of scorn
Sons of scorn
Yeah
Track Name: Survival of the Weakest
Survival of the Weakest
---------------------------

Love madness in a miserable mess
B(l)inds us nevertheless
I know you wanna float out to sea
But you're the same as me
Lonely frightened
We loosen tighten
Like so...
So...
So...

Chance eyes meet and you melt in my arms
Trips off all your alarms
Sometimes you gotta drink your own piss
But what the hell is this
Fine feel
Fire so real
This soft kill
Wine spill
Yeah

Shall we do what the chemicals say
Chase rainbows in the grey
Love ourselves in spite of the fear
Stay close far or near
Curse thee
Poverty
The old me
And Tennessee

To one side and then the other
In one ear and out your mother
So punk rock both of us posing
Tries to talk not quite ambrosian
Boil or freeze coax all the walls down
Stay distressed without a sound
Sit my lap step on psider
Put her in my heart and hide her

Where your treasure is
Your heart will be too
