Track Name: pop
i don’t know what i want
but i know what i need
do you know what i’m about

simple stupid surface
excremental nervous
will somebody call me out

but what’s the point now
it’s just the same now
the blind will lead the blind

it’s incremental
or accidental
there’s no objective right

send me information
make me more complacent
i remember how it feels

autofill my knowledge
history abolished
at least that was the deal

but what’s the point now
it’s just the same now
the blind will lead the blind

it’s incremental
or accidental
there’s no objective right
Track Name: remnant
you told me once
if you were twice the woman
you would repent

i understood
i thought i did
but now i really don’t think i did


have you made it
i saw the photos
that your mother has uploaded

don’t ask me why
after all this time
i left the phone off the line
so if you call
no tone at all
i guess it’s my turn
Track Name: sister
don’t let them shame you
i know you do
after they’ve tamed you
you’ll feel new

your face is burning
don’t let it cool
their hair is tangled

all is forgiven
your sympathy
becomes a weakness
you’re so easy

your skin is seething
don’t let it cool
we are all tangled, sister
Track Name: desire
what’s the point
do or don’t
will or wont
who knows

still stuck right here
never been clearer
not far not near
who knows

tell me what you wanted to hear
show me what you wanted to do
give me what you want to receive
there’s no catharsis or sense of relief

deal
what a steal
no not for me
who knows

tell me what you wanted to hear
show me what you wanted to do
give me what you want to receive
there’s no catharsis or sense of relief
Track Name: stain
you said you’d cut it out
you should really watch your mouth
pseudo sermon on the mound

trite and so sustained
left your clothes out in the rain
one more reason to complain


i never wanted to
but i never tried to choose

caught in a sticky thing
some constant remembering

simple to be contrived
a thorn always in your side

tell me the darkest things
let’s see what you’ve got to hide


alone you’re laughable
single shovel deeper hole
nothing else you’d ever know

but nothing is for sure
have you ever wanted more


i never wanted to
but now it’s your turn to choose

wrap me up in your sheets
so swollen and complete

just give me one more taste
the air’s never been so sweet

numb doesn’t mean a thing
content to live starving
Track Name: telesthete
they didn’t know you
quite like i do
weird global event
masticates you


caught in the sequence
terminate who
no activator
nothing to do

l.e.d. silence
monitor me
smooth operator
control + z

temperature falling
still and giddy
objective regret
feels real to me
Track Name: sand
the sand
my skin
one man
let in

no more

one fly
for years
you cry
no tears

no more
Track Name: ontological moment
you slept in the corner on the wall
i stayed up and looked at my phone
now i don’t see you anymore

i traded my things for a thought
still goes stale but it won’t rot
now i don’t have to be anymore

inchoate prepaid connection
prescribe what you consider fun
now i just don’t speak anymore

reinvent our own gold standard
connotate our own set of words
now i don’t see you anymore
Track Name: gain
on the wall
in the frames you made
the dirt clings to
each thing you do

better yet
don’t try to go to sleep
no need to rest

clinging to
objective assurance
the capital
more capital

please wake up
or go right back to sleep
you’re inbetween
