JAY: its 50 / 50 efren and me
JAY: well its probably more 60 / 40 him
BRITT: hehe.
BRITTl: what's been your favorite so far?
JAY: if something pisses me off, I write a song about it pretty much
JAY: fav song? well, efren has this one song he wrote called Shattered In My
Eyes. its really
JAY: pretty.
JAY: ever heard the song Pennyroyal Tea? Its a little like that.
BRITT: i usually just listen to a song, steal a few of their lyrics and put
something together that
BRITT: doesn't even go with the song..
BRITT: i don't think i've heard that one...who'd it by?
JAY: Nirvana
BRITT: how does it go? i'm usually familiar with lyrics and artists than
BRITT: ....(and now i got "the bitch song" stuck in my head)
JAY: The chorus is "Sit and drink pennyroyal tea / I'm anemic royalty / I'm so
tired I can't
JAY: sleep / I'm a liar and a theif"
BRITT: no clue....
JAY: It was never a single
BRITT: that's probably why...i don't think i own any nirvana c.ds...it's more
like ozzy
BRITT: you like ozzy?
JAY: yes ozzy good
BRITT: my dad always said that when i was little they'd start playing ozzy
and i'd be all happy,
