about

pumpkin mouth is Guy Capecelatro III and jocelyn mackenzie.

They created this new band to participate in the 2019 RPM challenge in which participants are prompted to write and record an album in the month of February.

Guy asked jocelyn, for about the 30th time in the ten years she'd known him, "Do you wanna do an RPM album together this year?" and jocelyn finally said "Sure, but I want you to make a bunch of really weird beats and I just want to sing to them."

"Deal," said Guy.

And so he did make weird beats and tracks, and he emailed them to jocelyn, who was in Florida at the time. She improvised melodies and lyrics in a process she fondly calls making "word salad," and emailed Guy back the raw improvisations she came up with. Guy listened to these odd song zygotes and typed up the words he THOUGHT he heard her singing. Then, he sent those lyrics back to Jocelyn who made no changes to his interpretations but did make some actual vocal parts out of the whole thing. None of the lyrics make any sense and most of them ended up about food and we like it like that.

Tooth Salad is pumpkin mouth's first album.

Peanut Butter is the name of the cat.

Track Name: Perfect Peach Pie
You got your life wrong baby
You’ve got the light on the darkness
It’s getting rough all so suddenly
You ate a piece of my perfect peach pie

You turned the light on slowly

You got a light on inside of me
Don’t pull the shades down quickly
You’ve got the light on inside of me
You’ve got the light on me ooooh

I’ve fallen in with a phantom now
It’s all I needed

Give me five dollars for the lighthouse
Let me take the mellow path through
Livin’ it up working it out taking my pulse
Selling the car watching the birds

You burned the house down baby
You’ve shaken me to the foundation
I’ll stretch my heart over your head
We’ll see the view from above now

You turned the light on slowly
You got a light on inside me
Track Name: Eyeballs
Come and get it

Every time I go down to your house
I turn into something I never knew I was
I don’t understand you
You don’t have any power over me
Except you do, you know you do
I don’t understand it and I don’t like it
But you’re doing it

Get down Get down
Shake things Move out
Cut off your hair

Cause you’ve got that look on your face
You’ve got that glint in your eyeballs
And you know what that means

Come and live it

Every time I go down to the grocery store
Even with these heathens all around me
I’m plagued by indecision and turmoil
Should I buy the garlic powder or garlic cloves?
Do I want the precooked bacon the Double stuffed Oreos?
How do you humans navigate these waters?
Track Name: The Way The World Moves Under Us
Heavy petting, come and get it, we’re connected
I believe in the healing powers of satin
Heavy petting, come and get it, we’re connected
There’s no living in this double fantasy

I can tell there’s strings running through everything,
Watch me as I float and fall and bounce back up
Tell yourself it only ever gets much better
Breathe the air inside this tiny balloon

I heard that you come around
Whenever the sun disappears
Shock me into yielding ever slowly
I like how your wet breath feels on me
I know we can’t talk about objectivity
All we are is all we’ll ever learn to be

Tell me there’s a secret passage
Feel the way...

Racing around like a pumpkin that’s caught fire
But you’re the only fireman within my sight
And if my hands fall off and shatter on the ground
I hope you don’t cut your baby feet

I believe the sun is going down
I believe the moon is made of marzipan

I believe that there are two of me
Living simultaneously in the same world
I believe that there are two of me
Living simultaneously in the same world
I believe the sun is going down
I believe the moon is made of marzipan

Tell me there's a secret passage
Feel the way the world moves under us
The world moves under us
Feel the way the world moves under us

I can tell there’s strings running through everything
Watch me as I float and fall and bounce back up
Tell yourself it only ever gets much better
Tell yourself whatever
Track Name: Skin in My Water
Hypocrite landing on a satellite
I’ve got a piece of skin in my water
I don’t understand it
There’s a lot of things I don’t understand
Like nuclear physics and quantum mechanics

I don’t wanna be anything that you can be
Because I am stereotypically
Extra terrestrial, unique

Don’t you wanna say baby gotta go down
Oh baby you got it going
Baby you’ve got it going

Oh my love spreads across the mountains
Ohio has always been my home

And you’re never going down

Get your gods down to the Colosseum
Ride them around in the little red wagons
Get high on your carousel
I don’t know what I’m doing here

Baby you’ve got a lot of damage now
Do you know what that means
Do you know what that means to me

Ooh child get your daggers out
Touch your cheek and I’ll kiss you goodnight
Kiss you goodnight
Track Name: Funeral Drinking
There’s a catapult over the mountain
There’s a caterpillar
There’s a catapult
Standing and shouting
Over the mountain
And it's coming for you slowly
And he looks a little thing
And for your family

You’ve got a lot of nerve
Coming round here talking to me like you're fancy
You’ve got a lot of nerve
Thinking your little things
Honestly I’m an amateur
Just like the rest of them

Got a lot of nerve
Coming onto me like this you see
And you won’t talk clearly
When you know there’s nothing I can do
To separate us from this fantasy

I’m itching at the neck now see
I think there’s something crawling on me
So don’t go, don’t go, please don't go away
Please don’t go away

Give a little get a little
Like a caterpillar dancing
In another universe
Watch me going over and under
And he’s going upstairs
And we’re going to a funeral drinking

And I’m so alone you’ve gotta hold me
Like a caterpillar dancing
And let go now
But I don’t wanna go

Everything I do is counterintuitive
I’m a wave of emotions
Untangle them and tangle them
How come I listen to myself
And tangle them up again

How could I, how come I listen to myself?
What was I thinking when I looked in the mirror again?
What was I thinking?
I should have seen myself, I should have loved myself
But of course I can’t see anything anyhow
You're a freaky little thing
In the haze of proximity
You're a freaky little thing
Track Name: Dollhouses
Airplanes don’t like subways
Gotta get started somewhere
Gotta get started somewhere

I don’t like sound of a backbone, stand back
Gotta lot of nerve baby but I don’t mind
Swing me around again
Gotta lot of nerve baby but I don’t mind

Get down when I’m sitting down on the ground
Get back hammering the finest ass
Get back, get back

Live these final moments carelessly
Don’t forget to take your special medicine
But don’t take it, it doesn’t help anything

Gotta plant a planet in something round here
Gotta find someone to balance these scales
There’s a rabbit in my pants and I can feel her breathing
Like she’s a dragon

And the hot stuff is melting my legs
I can’t find anything redeemable in what you’re saying
Honey you don’t believe in now
But you don’t get nothing if you don’t die soon

Hey girl, don’t you know you got three fingers in the wrong place baby?
How many dollhouses are too many dollhouses?
Freaky laughing and oohs
Freaky laughing and oohs
And I wonder
How many dollhouses are too many dollhouses?
Track Name: Peanut Butter
But I don’t know
What will go down
I’ve got a cat now
But I don’t know how it gets around

Had a Bandaid on my finger
Burned myself on the chicken pan
It hurts, I need some Neosporin
But I don’t have any so I’ve gotta go out

Don’t wanna leave my house
Don’t wanna leave my house now
I can’t go down to the store
Because I don’t have a car any more
There isn’t time I don’t have money in my pocket
Guess I need a job now

Do you have a job for me?
I could be your ukulele
I could be everything that you need
But that wouldn’t pay the bills would it now?

Do you have an understanding
Of what it means to be inside my head?

Nothing here is real!
Nothing here is real!

What the fuck is wrong with me?
This isn’t funny all but I’m cracking myself up
I can’t seem to stand the way the peanut butter falls down
Into the bath tub
Wallowing all alone by myself in the tub
I eat some chicken nuggets in the bath tub
While I’m alone and crying
It's been worse
I tell you, my life has been worse
Track Name: Snowday Baby
You’re a real sure shot baby
You’re a monster inside my heart
Everybody knows where you’ve been
But we want your shoe size

There’s a little monkey in heart
No one ever sees it jumping crazy

You’re on the right track baby
Don’t forget to go to the depot now
You’ve got your underwear inside out
Praying for a snowday baby

I could never lose you in the crowd
You’re the one who sings into my mouth

Whoa you’ve got it good now
Don’t you let it loose now
You got it good now

You’re such a car wreck baby
And we’re heading for the bridge now
Every time you go out I’m worried
For your safety cause I don’t know where you’ve been

Show me where the pages fell apart
You could never hold me like an ocean
Track Name: Hard Love (feat. The Shimberg Fiddler)
Hey crabs, why are we going in circles?
Eat these sacred sentences
They’re always breaking out

Hey birds, keep it to yourself
You're in a forest going down
Keep up all that flying

Why is it always the quiet ones?
It’s always the pious ones
Who have the giant lungs

Everybody knows hard love
Say your name for me
Get a shoe shine, baby
I’m going down

Gotta get a suit for your funeral,
I can’t explain what you’re doing
Track Name: The Green Grass That You Wanted
I miss you, I miss your face
When it’s going down
I miss you, I miss your face
And I’m going down

I miss you, I miss the way you move in me
I miss the way you wipe them tears
From my forehead, baby
I miss you

I miss you, I miss you,
I miss you
My hard heart is broken down
I can’t let it out I can’t let it out

I have no understanding of
Why you do the things you do
I’m not sure why nothing comet together
Nothing comes together

Nothing comes together

Get on way down in the garden
Get on way down in the garden
Plant it way down in the garden
It is the green grass that you wanted
It’s exactly what you wanted
