about

what do we know for sure? nothing.

listen, i'm just a guy in my bedroom trying to escape. from what? i dunno, but i think i'm getting closer and closer to it.
so i guess the music sounds like dinosaur jr, xiu xiu, galaxie 500, woods, chad vangaalen, jonathan coulter, maybe some other stuff.

Track Name: i'm dead
i can't decide to live or to die
i'm dead
this decision will effect the rest of our lives
i'm dead
we won't eat and we won't close our eyes
we're all dead
oh oh
i'm dead

this ecosystem of my mind
mouth taped shut and buried alive
born to breed and body defiled
love held aloft its glory high
the sharp stink burns my eyes
betrayed not once but twice
mustrust mountains i tried to climb
and i've given my life
and i'm dead

i can't decide to live or to die
well i'm dead
this decision will effect the rest of our lives
i'm dead
we won't eat and we won't close our eyes
we're all dead
oh oh
i'm dead
Track Name: you do what you like
you do what you like
and when you die
you'll know you have died
doin what you like

you were wrong
but for all the right reasons
now you just have to want it
and it sounds so simple
and you know you can change
and why wouldnt you want to?

you do what you like
and when you die
you'll know you have died
doin what you like
Track Name: starlight
the starlight shines into my eyes
sometimes i feel i'm losing my mind
the warmth in our hearts surrounds us
the love in our lives abounds

do i deserve the way you treat me?
do i earn somehow these glances into your eyes?
i'm the starlight peering inside
there's nothing left for either of us to hide

to trap our song -- to catch ourselves
this is how you touch my heart
rain and wind bring night to my mind
but the starlight shines into our eyes

i've protected myself from failure for too long
i've been hiding from my own song
would i rather die clutching my fears
or set my life free into the night sky?
Track Name: what's the world gonna say when you're gone?
what's the world gonna say, when you're gone?
what is the world gonna remember you for
after you're dead and gone?

you don't have much time anyways.
we don't have much time anyways.

and so i goes
older in the ways we all know
it's a touch of hopelessness
and a comfort that comes
from the knowledge that life will end
and none of this will be remembered
no one will remember any of this shit

you don't have much time anyway.
we don't have much time anyways.

what's the world gonna say, when you're gone?
what is the world gonna remember you for
after you're dead and gone?

you don't have much time anyways.
we don't have much time anyways.
Track Name: curiosity
partially out of curiosity
and partially out of respect
for the fear that was instilled in me
it was for fear, that i climbed aboard

beauty chokes my curiosity
on my side there's nothing left
the snow climbed up to the second story
a gnawing hunger was on my breath

i will not fall into curiosity
two different thoughts at different times
instead i'll climb into second-guessing
smothering myself inside
Track Name: you'll never see me again, promise
i promise that you'll never see me again
and i suppose that that's just fine
but i feel that i should be different by now
you've changed so much and i don't know why

i don't think it'll take very long
for our friends to see the same change
now i find myself being selfish
burying deep this feeling that i've been betrayed

i'll probably never see you again
and i guess we both think that that's just fine
after i saw all these changes that you'd made
the part of you that was inside of me just died.

the you that was inside of me,
begged to come out to play.
what have you, what have i become?
are you feeling as betrayed as i?

i'll probably never see you again
and i guess we both think that that's just fine
after i saw all these changes that you'd made
the part of you that was inside of me just died.
Track Name: my energy, my direction
a million hours a week float by
with small square boxes
filling our stomachs

when we don't have to feed ourselves
what's left for us to do?
do i really care?
i'll just sleep anyways
until my stomach caves in
until my desires are flat and weak

oh, my energy
oh, my direction

what will i do at 8 in the morning?
lay down these tracks
sing in someone else's voice
until my fingers hurt
and confusion is my guide
i'm so confused
until my stomach hurts
find confusion in my pride
i'm so confused

oh, my energy
oh, my direction

a million hours a week float by
...plenty of time to fill our lives
Track Name: peace on earth
in this past that i've lost
we stopped living life long ago
in the days not too far away
our chance to live, to be again

something cooks our brain
there's freedom in these words

in a barrel-shaped house
that was burnt down long ago
it's really an eyepiece
and you can see the surface of the moon

we'll fight this war
there's nothing left to lose

in the end, there'll be
a struggle between
what's really real and me
and i don't think we can win

now the sky is caving in
this must really be the end
the moon comes crashing down
it too will have a chance to live again

there's no brain left to cook
there's freedom in this war

in the end, there'll be
a struggle between
what's really real and me
and i don't think we can win
Track Name: piano fuck up
none
Track Name: let's drink until our hearts stop
let's raise our glass
to everything we've lost
we probably didn't need
any of it anyway
let's drink our drinks
until our heart stops
we probably didn't need it
for anything anyway

it's probably the last time
i'll see this light
this was supposed
to be my last night
i'll drink myself blind
just this one more time
it's just as miserable to fall
as it is to climb
Track Name: that wasn't cocaine after all
that wasn't cocaine after all
that i was thinking of before
when i said a billion people had died
and there's bound to be a billion more

we've been so serious all night
our eyes are red, cracked dry

i'm moving slower not fast now
and it's surely the first sign
that things didn't go as planned in the past
and if that was the end of it that'd be fine

but that wasn't cocaine after all
that we used to make cookies and friends
when you invited your future boyfriend over for drinks
i could see we were coming to an end

we've been serious all night
our eyes are red, cracked dry
a scraping ray of sunlight
keeps suicide at bay for one more night

that wasn't cocaine after all
that i was thinking of before
when i said a billion people had died
and there's bound to be a billion more
Track Name: the opposite of optimism is not pessimism
i would like just once to sing about happy things
it's this life--i don't trust it, and what it brings
well i hate fun, that should be obvious by now
but i truly believe
that in the end we'll work our differences out

and i think that everyone is afraid of something
and that one thing seems so big and frightening
we can't live always second guessing our actions
so i have to believe
that in the end it'll all work out

i feel betrayed by past generations' failures
it always seemed to me that they never cared for us
but i wonder what the fuck i think i'm doing
that makes me think that i
am so useful and so profound

i would like to sing a few happy songs
but if i ignored our every pain and struggle
does it demean everything in life we've won?
and i truly believe
that in the end it'll all work out
Track Name: failure is what we're made of
i want to give up
but i know that i can't, love
and i know i will fuck up
cause failure's what we're made of

we'll we've been profound
and it hasn't been working out
if i could forget
all these lessons i've been taught
if i could put back
the most important things
i would not be afraid
i would not be afraid anymore

yes we have been scared
yeah it isn't working out
i envy those days
when i was not in control
some instinct was guiding me
a voice that never spoke
yet it always seemed so simple
it always seemed so plain to me
what i was supposed to do

those one million thoughts
have stopped me
one million times
but it isn't working out

i want to give up
but i know that i can't, love
and i know i will fuck up
cause failure's what we're made of
Track Name: are you sleepy?
are you sleepy?
are you tired?
are you past the point
where you wanna go to bed?
so you stay on the couch
and you fall asleep instead
in my arms.

where did we go?
don't you want me?
are you to the point
where you need something else?
and we both know that life
never gives us what we want
in our hearts.

all that i wanted.
you're all that i needed.
but what can you do
when the heart just stops loving
it's easy for you
cause i'm the one
with the broken heart.

are you sleepy?
are you tired?
are you past the point
where you wanna go to bed?
so you stay on the couch
and you fall asleep instead
in my arms.
Track Name: fill my brain with fancy cheeses
i’ve had a lot of potatoes
enough for the whole year.
oh these potatoes,
and fall is nowhere near.

yes, i do eat a lot of things,
over the course of a year.
and i eat a lot of courses.
over the course of every meal.

give me your meat,
your tallow, and more
and i will eat,
and swallow it, for sure.

fill my grave with giblets,
and my brain with fancy cheese.
i’ll be aged sweet as bourbon,
keep me frozen, with frozen peas.
