Hey! What’s up? I’ll leave this all on your machine
This is the last call from me from here on out
No more finding roadkill on your lawn in the morning
I’ve stopped collecting your hair; I’ve thrown it all out
I don’t call the hotlines anymore, so now they’re mad at me
No longer spying from your neighbor’s tree
I don’t need to stalk you anymore
I’ve been in therapy
My therapist just sits there and agrees with me
He costs about the same as a law degree
He wrote me some prescriptions and he set me free
From all the prophecies
That I had self-fulfilled so devotedly
And then this obsession began to freeze
If only I could have foreseen
You were not worth the stalking
It’s all over – retired Peeping Tom
Binoculars gather dust on my bookshelf
It’s time I forged ahead with a purpose all my own
A reason to keep breathing in and of itself
Seeing your frightened tears used to fill my world
Now that I’m a lady, I must throw away the girl – out of the trunk and into the river
I’ve been in therapy
I’ve got a captive audience finally
And take more medication than celebrities
I’ve switched my focus onto curing my disease
So when you go outside and feel the breeze
Remember: ‘cause I won’t be watching from the trees
I no longer plead my insanity
My therapy is gonna be the death of me
Sincerely, Goodbye Forever
And ever x4
I know I said I’d never call you again
I thought I’d gotten over you
But my brain had another plan
We were meant to be together
Just like ‘Politics and Crime’
I’ll stop cutting your brakes
If you’ll only just be mine
What do you think I’ll do
With a restraining order?
I’m gonna do to you
What Frodo did to Mordor
I think you need therapy
You’re cold and insensitive
This rope was way expensive so don’t struggle please
That webcam in your bathroom needs some batteries
Let’s take some family photos!
And when I set you free
We’ll go to therapy

In the beginning
There was nothing to be seen
The Universe was lonely
So I was made for him, and then
I began the end
Curious at why I’m lesser than
A thirst for something deeper
The knowledge of the Great I Am
It’s all my fault
At our feet forever
And we grow old
What separates can never bind together
All my faults
It’s all my fault
Paradise was fraying at the seems
The serpent promised me holy things
I’d do it all again; ignorance is broken
You can drag me through hell
But I’ll never repent
Never will we return
To the garden of ignorance
Will I burn in Hell?
Or will I beg for your benevolence?
Women are the weaker vessel
And they shouldn’t speak
But Prometheus brought fire
From the gods to the Greeks
Here’s your freedom
You’ve got to use it
Don’t be timid, girl
Or you could lose it
I’m a feminist, terrorist
Won’t let them control this
I have created you
Adam can suck it!
Starting in October of 2012, I began working with a dear old friend of mine, Tanith K., both of us wanting to start performing music and thespianism in and around Kansas City. We ultimately decided on music-centered performance highlighted by comedy and burlesque. We set to work on coming up with a name for our ambitious project; we decided upon “Cache Monet” pronounced “Cash Monayyy.”
Tanith has a history in burlesque performance in the Kansas City area, and I have done some performing with my dear old band, “The Abortionists.” It seemed like a necessary evolution as I was getting ants in my pants about getting out of my house and into the city. We are currently developing our stage show and many musical numbers.
This month, we have announced to the entire universe that we have a single on iTunes that we have labored over for months, that we are beginning our marketing campaign to raise some money so we can start performing with the necessary equipment, and hitting our friends up for some support and exposure.
While the new single, “Adam’s Apple,” isn’t overtly humorous or entirely indicative of our music style, we are very proud of our product, and assure you all that there will be many more. To increase the amount of exposure we can gather in a short amount of time, we need you, our friends and the very good people of the internet who I have been promoting music to for a very long time!
Here’s the deal:
1. Listen to the track on http://www.soundcloud.com/cachemonet and comment telling us what you think.
2. If you like it, you can buy the track on iTunes or CDbaby (for now, our distribution will take a bit to get on Amazon.com and such). WRITE A REVIEW. This part is really important. It helps people on iTunes know what other people think about us, and it helps people make buying decisions they wouldn’t otherwise make.
3. If you want to hear more, go to http://www.cachemonetkc.com and join the mailing list. We will do our best to let you hear our new stuff FIRST before we announce things on Facebook, Twitter and such.
4. Use social media like Facebook & Tumblr to share our website and music with your friends, friends of friends, pets, family, etc.
5. Be in our music videos! In the next few months, we will be putting announcements for all y’alls to meet us to do some video shoots for promotional videos! Everyone will receive credit for being in them, and we promise it will be super fun!
6. Help us get into venues! Once our act is complete, we will be inviting you all to our first performance and we will do our best to get it on video so you non-attenders can see us perform.
Obviously, you’re not obligated in any way to do any of this. I appreciate everyone who has had to listen to 5 versions of each song and did so willingly and who gave constructive criticism and encouragement.
Once we release a full album, we will be able to offer physical distribution and get a physical CD into your hands. Once we start up a street team, we’ll set up ways that we can give away free goodies to our supporters!
Thank you for reading, and for listening, and we will be back with some sarcastic-mode for our upcoming new singles, which should release before the end of February!
