"The enormous work which has been done on the sound texture must be respected as such. Too many "garage" artists (and yes, the term means something...) only plug the guitar with the will to play as fast as possible. Paul Jacobs shows that there is much more to this. The very few artists of his caliber give the most beautiful colours to the genre. With Pictures, Movies & Apartments, it's precisely like if Paul Jacobs had taken all the fluorescent shades of the covers to melt them in a pot of cast iron. The result is unique, here is a big slap of 2016, experimental, melodic, intense and fun. All you need is there." -Still In Rock

Track Name: The Image
Show me a picture

And it doesn't matter

Construct a figure

You cannot handle

Seeing this image
Because it Isn't showing

Up on the paper
It isn’t showing up on the paper
And I cannot handle seeing this image
Track Name: Born In A Zoo
Oh yeah better watch out now
Going to let yourself down
And you know that I’m not joking
Wasn’t up to you
You were born in a zoo
And you’ve traveled far
You’ve been getting older lately
Back into the town
Prices won’t go down
You’ve been saving your cheques
Wasn’t up to you
You were born in a zoo
And you’re feeling oh so sorry
Wont you let me say I’m sorry
I’ve been feeling older lately
Track Name: Changing
Hey did you know
They’ve been calling your name
Just an hour ago
You were still the same
But now you’re changing for me
I should have never let this happen
I should have never let you go
But these things always happen
And we will never know
Yes I’ve noticed
I’ve been calling out your name
Track Name: Pics, Movs & Apts.
You looked out as you were driving in your car
Right down my road
You’re going places you’ve never been before
It must be nice
Waking up in the same god damn apartment
Looking at the same pictures on the wall
You’ll watch a movie
Or we could lay around all day
We ain’t got nowhere to go
Pictures movies and god damn apartments
Thats all I know
Track Name: Quarter To Eleven
Its quarter to eleven
And you’re talking in your sleep
Because you’ve got to make a living
All the promises you keep
With the walls all around me
Walls that are covering up in dust
And the things that surround me
Are the things I need so much
Track Name: Your Favourite Number
Calling out your favourite number
I don’t think I’ll last very much longer
Walking down my favourite street
She’s the kind of woman I’d like to meet
Here you come there you go
And I don’t think i can take it
Very much longer
22, 401, 16 Days
In the sun
She’s got everything I need
When Im laying in her arms
Beneath the city
I don’t want to take the morning ride
But I’ve been laying here for days
I might die
I went down looking for more
Track Name: Come Over
I Just got some records back
I was looking for something to do
I was thinking we could watch a movie
If you come over tonight
Because I can’t seam to get you off of my mind
I get no satisfaction In my head
And I don’t want to spend all night in bed
Reading about nothing
Track Name: Words Of Wisdom
Did they teach you daily
Salvation when you’re dead?
And are the words of wisdom
Trapped inside your head?
Did they show it to you
On a sunny day?
I’d love to show you
What were the words of wisdom
That they had to say?
Does your neighbours wife
Lie down in your bed?
Are the words of wisdom
Trapped inside her head?
Did you find out just the other day?
Track Name: The Basement
She sits down right beside you
Tells you theres something on her mind
She puts her arms around you
You stay together through the night
Were in the basement
Every weekend, alone
If I get out early
I’ll head to the basement
Track Name: All I Need / Want
We’re moving out
Out of the house
Because were getting older
I’ve got all I need for now
Track Name: See Through You
Come to me sweetheart
Come hear my words
You’re telling me
You’re lost within your world
I need some strength
I need some will
You’re telling me
You love another girl
You won’t believe me
I need to hear you
You see right through me
Well I spent some time away
You were taking your time
I needed some time away
I could see through you
Track Name: My Vacation
The light came shining through the covers
The neighbours looking through the sheets
They’re going to stick around forever
It makes good company for me
Last year you lived there with your mother
Last year you meant much more to me
The light outside can drive you crazy
The light outside is hard to see
On my vacation
