about

I decided to take a break from writing songs about my friends for a few days, re-record a few songs I really like, collect them all together and put them here.

Thanks for listening.

Track Name: look at me
sending texts to my roommates
saying i can't afford my rent
boiling rice that the rats must've got to
how long have i been living like this?

mom and dad
look at me i've gone and fucked up
well aren't you glad?
if you stuck around you'd know what's what

strangers screaming on the bus and
i wonder when i'll get my license
my degree gathers dust while
i sell TVs and try not to scream

mom and dad
look at me i've gone and fucked up
well aren't you glad?
if you stuck around you'd know what's what

my friends get stoned
and i sit sober
wondering where my dog went
walk outside and let hope wash over me
it's really nonsense

mom and dad
look at me i've gone and fucked up
well aren't you glad?
if you stuck around you'd know what's what
Track Name: a grave scenario
i've submitted my resume to all the local graveyards
admittedly, i'm afraid, it hasn't gotten me very far
don't they know that the dead - like me - we know best?
there's a lot of care and detail in looking after a corpse

if my legs still had muscles and my heart contained a will
i would march right down to the cemetery and proclaim out loud
do you give a shit about the buried and grieved?
do you even take your time to think about people like me?

okay i'll admit it, i get it i suppose
when i was young and still had a head without holes
i didn't think much about folks other than myself
now i know better that i'm six feet under ground
Track Name: evolved
man oh man color me impressed
i'm at my best when i know i'll see you next
higher kinda living, lower kinda being
you crawled outta the pond to see me still swimming

how could i catch you from down here?
reverse fishin', it seems like my new living
how could i catch you from down here?
my gills might rot but you're forgivin'

man oh man i got a lot of feelings
i'll write 'em out and try to make you see 'em
but these fins of mine can't hold pens
for romantic things to write to your friends

how could i catch you from down here?
reverse fishin', it seems like my new livin'
how could i catch you from down here?
my gills might rot but you're forgivin'
Track Name: dead dog hauntdown
bury me in your backyard
dig deep, dig far
where i will give life anew

visit my grave once a year
clasp your hands, pray hard
i am visible in your eyes

i will visit you in your dreams
pick your bones, make them clean
i am hopeful that you will be too

my body's gone but i still love you
what can i say, what can i do?
to prove it endlessly to you
Track Name: lag
drag my bones across the planet
i feel riddled with dust
do you even give a fuck if
haven't talked to you in what feels like a month?

it's only been a few days i think
i'm not sure of time
everything blends together
the thoughts that lag behind
Track Name: pygmalion
i will build you up in my mind
like pygmalion lost by time
you're just like his ivory
please just disappoint me
get it over with as soon as you can

i don't wanna fall in love
i think i might be too damn young

ended with a happy ending
i don't think that's right
i think it should have all crashed down
this is one stupid story
that i wouldn't mind
if it all ended up just working out

but i don't wanna fall in love
i think i might be too damn young

maybe one day like him
i'll come home, see you standing there before me
if i believed in such things i might think
you were a gift from venus

i don't wanna fall in love
i think i might be too damn young
Track Name: somniloquy
what are you doing tonight?
when will i see you again?
will things ever be alright,
or will they just drag along like this?

been talking in my sleep
i'm sure it's unimportant.
or maybe i say things
that only now escape my head

what are you doing tonight?
when will i see you again?
will things ever be alright,
or will they drag along like this?
Track Name: i am not
it's been a bad couple of days
feelin' awful in a couple of ways
it floats to the top
it starts 'til i rot
and i am not

it's been something worth talkin about
so all of my friends please gather around
i'm drifting sometimes
i'm losing pace
and i am not

talking to strangers on the internet
pouring my heart out to half of them
it's pointless
they agree that
i am not
Track Name: creepin and crawlin
i was crawling through time i guess
i know you were crawling through my head
i only ever saw your face every time i closed my eyes again

ooo
fallin, fallin, fallin for you

i was crawling through space i guess
trying to make some room for you
unrequited love's useless but you ended up feeling like i do

ooo
fallin, fallin, fallin for you

i was crawling through the dirt i guess
it was easy enough to hide what hurt
you were on to me real quick, you figured me out in a burst

ooo
fallin, fallin, fallin for you
