about

We recorded this at Rick's house with the intention of releasing a full length, and we were only able to track 4 songs before his neighbors called the police. We've since moved to a studio and are wrapping up 9 songs. In the meantime, here is what we were able to get done last winter.

Track Name: Marbles
me
wearing this face like a shield
to fend off this feminine voice, and falsehoods
i salivate to silver bells
and churches

hey
who do you think you are?
your disfigured protestant dream
left me stranded with empty pockets

this transition could take a while
floating through nothing
turning on lights
leaving my marbles behind

me shouting at florescent dead
unwrapping every word you said
sleep still in my eyes
it came as no surprise when it left

hey go ahead and beat your drum
go ahead and shine the sun

this transition could take a while
floating through nothing
turning on lights
leaving my marbles behind

it should go
without saying
but these monsters i've been portraying
candid, disenchanted, and sold out

there's no way to escape it
if i want it, i need to create it
Track Name: Stately Girl
got a letter from a stately girl
she used words like presumptuousness
telepathically, reincarnation, alabaster
how could i resist?
i wrote a treatise on her information
hoping to illustrate the limitations

i see what you see but i'm not sold

a different cause
a louder scene
another word
a cleaver screen
to colonize me

put your money where your language is
be the light that nothing will possess
cast your spells
speak in tongues
walk light and breath right with your guns

i see what you see but i'm not sold
love is an automatic weapon
for your so-called soul
Track Name: Shapeshifters
ubiquity is your super power
spin out in all directions
in the tenth dimension
we are all data now
and i feel so fragmented
something's got to give
we're going nowhere

come along
on a machine gun adventure
three cheers to me and euterpe
was told i might find her
in the empire state
she replaced my first name
with my middle name
once there was heaven
now there's just me
beware, the shapeshifters
they take on many forms

shaking out the old ghosts in my machine
making room for the new king and queen

here today tomorrow gone
i reach out and make connections
in the tenth dimension
they cut you down at the knees
but hey, you might be the one for me
you might be the one for me
i might be the one

come along
on a machine gun adventure
three cheers to me and euterpe
was told i might find her
in the empire state
she replaced my first name
with my middle name
once there was jesus
now there's just me
beware, the shapeshifters
they take on many forms
Track Name: Hello
we drank from a lion's head
we shot down the japanese
we were conductors then

you are not there
there isn't tomorrow
and time is not a thing
i can trust

i climbed out on the wing and dangled
hello

and in the end
there will be a beginning
give my regards
to the rest of that shit
me and me will still be here
travelling through the lingering nonsense

you are not there
there isn't tomorrow
and time is not a thing
i can use

i climbed out on the wing and dangled
hello
