Donnie’s got an ego His high’s controlled respect Selfish is in style What the hell did you expect? Ambush and fucked Oh shit, it’s so fucked up Ambush and fucked This country was ambushed and fucked War pigs on the mountain Drones are everywhere Reason is in tatters Fog’s the new clear Ambush and fucked Oh shit, it’s so fucked up Ambush and fucked This country was ambushed and fucked If You’ve got an answer You can tweet it to the sky If you feel romantic You can kiss your ass goodbye Donnie’s got an ego Donnie’s got an ego Donnie’s got an ego Donnie’s got an ego

about

When Buck Gooter was arranging songs for “Finer Thorns” we briefly worked on a track Terry wrote called “Ambush (Donnie’s got an ego)”, which was a clever takedown of 45’s nonsense with a crude but very true chorus. We ended up shelving this jam for later use. A lot of life happened right after “Finer Thorns” was recorded including (but not limited to) the tragic passing of Terry Turtle into the beyond in November 2019. Needless to say, we never got to finish working on “Ambush…”. This song was nothing but a fond memory of mine until this practice demo was miraculously discovered recently. The recording is definitely of “practice demo” quality but Terry’s vocal and guitar performances are strong and the message is great so it seemed like a good idea to let this one live after all. May it chase away a little bit of the darkness.

Lyrics:

Donnie’s got an ego
His high’s controlled respect
Selfish is in style
What the hell did you expect?

Ambush and fucked
Oh shit, it’s so fucked up
Ambush and fucked
This country was ambushed and fucked

War pigs on the mountain
Drones are everywhere
Reason is in tatters
Fog’s the new clear

Ambush and fucked
Oh shit, it’s so fucked up
Ambush and fucked
This country was ambushed and fucked

If You’ve got an answer
You can tweet it to the sky
If you feel romantic
You can kiss your ass goodbye

Donnie’s got an ego
Donnie’s got an ego
Donnie’s got an ego
Donnie’s got an ego
