"Broken Household Appliance National Forest" as written by and J Lytle....
Sit on the toaster like a rock
No need to worry about a shock
All of the microwaves are dead
Just like the salamander said
The refrigerators house the frogs
The conduit is the hollow log

Broken household appliance national forest
Air conditioners in the woods
Broken household appliance national forest
Mud and metal mixing good

Meadows resemble showroom floors
Owls fly out of oven doors
Stream banks are lined with vacuum bags
Flowers reside with filthy rags
A family of deer were happy that
The clearing looked like a laundry mat

Broken household appliance national forest
Air conditioners in the woods
Broken household appliance national forest
Mud and metal mixing good

    General CommentLike a lot of Grandaddy it makes you think post-apocalytic things straight off. but I believe its about how plastic and metal servants to humans have outlasted their masters.. Anybody?

    General Commentdefinitely prophesizing (hyperbolically) the demise of race, leaving our devices and material wonders as the relics of our culture. awesome satire on humans' dependency on machines.

    General CommentYeah, I'm not really sure if it's supposed to be post-apocalyptic or it's just about a wooded area where people tend to leave old household appliances that they can't get hauled off to a dump. Regardless, the idea of run down machinery almost becoming *part* of an ecoystem is a pretty interesting one.

    General CommentThe post-apocalyptic explanation is the one that makes most sense, particularly when considering that The Sophtware Slump is basically a concept album, with the unifying theme of a bleak vision of the future.
