about

here it is. the ep. it has been hopelessly sprawled out in hallways and fleeting muscle movements and recesses of the psyche for years. it has been on the ground for a while trying to either crawl or tear itself apart. it has been needlessly flailing and straining itself in utero. it's ugly and pointless. it's a trick made from average tools and materials and ideas intended to convince you of transcendence or salvation or beauty or the nature of love or the importance of those who crafted it. it's a tedious assemblage of worn-through gimmicks. it will not save the world. it might not even save you. most people living or dead will never hear it. maybe that's a part of what might make it special to you. enjoy.

Track Name: Destroy Me
I want you to destroy me and rebuild me into something else.
Only go outside to smoke cigarettes or to go to another city.
Track Name: Tell Me
Tell me just where you want me, just where you need me to be. I'll be done doing labor for all of those creeps that don't mean a thing. Tell me just where you want me, just where you need me to be. I've got cavities welling up in my brain and I cannot think. Been spending miles under the surface. Been spending time just splitting hairs. Been spending miles under the surface, and you've been firing off flares. Tell me just where you want me, just where you need me to be. When the planes are flying overhead, you can breathe your sweet release.
Track Name: Pharaoh Step
A pharaoh step, all crushing on human nature. It's in this hour I wonder what it will take to be whole--how we could even stand to lose more broken pieces, broken pieces of your soul.

And you can mend broken pieces / And you give me broken pieces

A feral crutch, all lighting up matches daily. It's in this hour I wonder why we always need time--why you can't just seem to show your face to the light.

And you can mend broken pieces / And you give me broken pieces

A cynic stare, holistic interpretation. It's in this hour I wonder if you're really that archetype--if you really had it in you, or if we're losing touch.

And you can mend broken pieces / And you give me broken pieces
Track Name: Moments → Nothingness
Everyday, vivid dreams fall from my head. Used to wield words as weapons, but I must have dulled the edge. The years go by faster in this bucket that I've bled. Ancient heartbeats fade, my mind grows duller instead. I sip the salty slumber, etch runes into my knuckles--think in certain spans of characters and numbers. Grow circles 'round my eyelids, burn the rest: papyrus, and await the day again when there's fire in my iris.

I can't wait for these moments to grind me into nothingness.

I can't wait for these moments to grind me into nothingness.

I can't wait for these moments to grind me into nothingness.

I can't wait for these moments to grind me into nothingness.

I can't wait for these moments to grind me into nothingness.

I can't wait for these moments to grind me into nothingness.

I can't wait for these moments to grind me into nothingness.

I can't wait for these moments to grind me into nothingness.

I can't wait for these moments to grind me into nothingness.

I can't wait for these moments to grind me into nothingness.

I can't wait for these moments to grind me into nothingness.

I can't wait for these moments to grind me into nothingness.
