about

This is an alternate mix of what appears on Christmas for Breakfast, and is also the track that inspired the events described in "The Incredibly Strange Case of the Mysterious Mystery" and "Son of..."

lyrics

Heloise, beautician’s assistant, what does her life hold in store?
[E-E7-A-A7-F#m]
She clips, and she curls, and she shampoos the girls, does she want for something more?[F#m-B-Bm-Dm-B-B7]
Heloise, beautician’s assistant, tries to escape into dreams
[E-E7-A-A7-F#m]
To begin to live because time’s closing in and life’s shorter than it seems [F#m-B-Bm-Dm-B-B7]

And oh! Heart be still…[F#m-B]
What did you feel when you took the pill [A-E]
Did it open your eyes [F#m-B]
Sweet Heloise did it alter your mind? [Dm-B-B7]
Heloise, beautician’s assistant, just waking up to the truth
[E-E7-A-A7-F#m]
That just cause it’s called a permanent, it won’t last forever [Sweet Heloise] [A-B-E-B-A7]
That just cause it’s called a permanent, it won’t last forever [Sweet Heloise] [A-B-E-B-A7]
And just cause it’s called a permanent, it won’t last forever Heloise…
[A-B-E-B-A-B-E]

They released 13 7" eps and two digital eps. They also produced a full-length album, a live album/dvd, and a compilation cd of their first 11 eps. They also wrote some of the music for the Chris Gethard Show.
