All Adds Up

about

Dabe is here with "All Adds Up," the first track from his forthcoming full length, "All the Best Songs I Can Remember" due out mid-2024. A rhyming mostly-skewer, part-homage to consumerism, "All Adds Up" has nostalgia all over it, from the plodding "Desolation Row"-esque delivery to lyrics borrowed from late night infomercials of the 90s to today. Wit is what shines through the fog. With each turn of phrase, including the repeated chorus, a double or triple-entendre is delivered with deadpan nihilism, stoking the flame of distrust in consumer culture and having us question why we continue to participate, all while enduring belly-churning chuckles.

lyrics

All my life I've been avoiding the noid
Protecting my pizza
Gets me paranoid
Impossible to intuit
And they tell me just do it
I tried so hard but I blew it
Every morning top
Snap, crackle and pop
Tell me that the fruit of the loom
Is the cream of the crop
And it's two for one
Ain't buying stuff so much fun
You could even get a gun

It all adds up
It's all ads up
It all adds up
It's all ads up
It all adds up
It's all ads up
All adds up
All ads up

Feel like I've fallen and I can't get up
They try to tell me that their coffee
Is the best part of waking up
Can't keep track of my arrangements
Just a few too many easy payments
Know who to call for my arraignment

It all adds up
It's all ads up
It all adds up
It's all ads up
It all adds up
It's all ads up
All adds up
All ads up

...take it Jeff

But wait
There's more
Just wait'll you see
What they have in store
I figured out the math
And it's too clever by half
Well I could cry or I could laugh

It all adds up
It's all ads up
It all adds up
It's all ads up
It all adds up
It's all ads up
All adds up
All ads up
