    A shiny screen-printed CD in a 6-panel card case with exclusive artwork and a prose poem sort of thing in the way of liner notes. Look at it and think of the cool waters and monolithic pines of scenic North Idaho.

lyrics

Let off on a technicality!
Praise God for technicalities!
Even the DA's got to fold 'em now and then.
Weep to see the winter sun,
the Wednesday morning just begun;
Post Falls never looked so beautiful,
and it never will again.

Zip's Drive-In, old red S-15;
the banks and strip malls in between;
drab walls raised in the seventies, way back when.
Hot coffee and an ice cream cone
and a vision meant for you alone.
Post Falls never looked so beautiful,
and it never will again.

Even the modular homes —
the low grey cell blocks of the high school —
you might learn something from it,
if you weren't such a fool.

Scrub your uniform by hand,
bury all the contraband.
Better a Christmas behind the counter than in the pen.
Vow to quit your lowdown ways
in a year or two, if not today.
Post Falls never looked so beautiful,
and it never will again.
