The first song on the album was the last song to be finished, and that's fitting, the way it sums up (or foreshadows?) the whole thing. This came out of an improv jam that we used to do in rehearsal before playing "Right Outside". When we tracked the basics for this, I'm pretty sure Pete didn't even know we were recording an actual song - he learned it on the fly and did maybe two takes, total.


Good morning, or is it evening
We hope you like our humble offering
Seems like we started years and years ago
Now Lizzy, Pete, and me we're ready to step back
and let the album go

So here's our guarantee...
(Like Birdy draining threes or LJ in the paint)
Our guarantee...
(And Lizzy wondered so Pete showed her where the taint was)

We prob'ly should've finished long ago (we're so slow...)
But now's no time for excuses lists or other tales of woe (slow pokes, yeah)
We took our time that's true, but now there's songs to play for you
We hope they make your neighbors wonder what the hell you're list'ning to

So here's our guarantee...
(And Steve Albini might not dig the toms on track three)
Our guarantee...
(And there's no use for squirrel fur that will still shock me)

You may or may not see sublime in all
Nor will your moldy soles save you from Hellhounds ten feet tall
But whatever you find along your way
We're so grateful that you made today a Life Like Luster day


from Life Like Luster, released September 27, 2007
