Severance Package from Chico, CA is out with the unfriending anthem of the year, “Scissors Gonna Cut Ya.” Video for the single premieres April 7, 2017, directed by animator Josh Funk, who printed and hand-cut thousands of individual frames to create the video’s distinctive look.


You put down all my friends - you think you're better than all of them. Not only is that not true, I'm ready to say "Goodbye to you."

You really ought to pay more attention to the way your actions are affecting those close to you, and when you lash out at a mutual friend, I gotta ask why.

See it on your posts on the internet, about how rude the people are but I'm willing to bet that the first shots fired came from your camp and not theirs.

So you can play the picked-on victim if you wanna, I won't pay no mind to bullshit that you're gonna try to use to distract me from what's going on.

So much insecurity, so I go about my business with you vibing me., Paranoia is the destroyer, don't ya know?

Try to shake down sympathy, while you reinvent the meaning of cruelty, 'cuz being mean isn't really mean if it's not treating you like a deity.

Take away the superficial things and what you're left with is you , standing on a pile of victims, drinking champagne.

Somebody cut you long ago. Somebody cut you way down deep. And now you take that pain and spread it around.

Enough of this, enough of that. If change is what you seek then self-reflect. Is there anything you can do to turn this sorry old tub around?

Why can't we all just get along? And I can write a much more pleasant song about all the friendly people being so nice.

But until then...

Scissors gonna cut ya, cut ya out of my life.
