about

Please don't kill bugs/arachnids! Please take them outside or leave them be!

Thank you to everyone who helped me make this album possible and listened to all my awful demos. So many annoying fb messages were sent during the making of this album... Without my pals, i would've descended into a tinnitus frenzy. Shout out to unofficial CF Jamwiches ;) Lots of people gave me vital opinions and critiques of these songs, and this album would not exist without them :)

Also so much <3 and respect for the 585 scene, the Sanc + friends, Scarier Dome + friends, Utica + friends, and Buffalo + friends, and of course everyone in and around Geneseo who makes art and music. New York State <3

Track Name: Aurelian Daze
Aurelian daze, lookin for my pals who flew away
That's why I'm here: to study things about their wings
Float away thru the haze of another tainted summer day
Wait around for a treat, like a swallow-tail up in a treeee

Butterflies are on my mind
Just too bad they're hard to find

But moths they creep and cuddle next to me
They feel their way around and seep inside my dreams
They're just like me!

My antennae will break like some relics from a long forgotten place
"He's a bug!!!" they will say when I build my own cocoon today

I've got a nice tree branch beside me
And a nice chrysalis to hide me

But moths they creep and cuddle next to me
They feel their way around and seep inside my dreams
Their furry heads and feet help me fall asleep
I hope that they escape from death in the porch light heat
They're just like me!!
Track Name: Spackle Sentiment
i waste time wasting all my daylight just to be awake at night
that's okay, I'm fuckin with this lifestyle nothing really bums me out
my front porch used to have a bathtub now it only has some chairs
my driveway is paved with pretty gravel but my feet are bare

i waited four whole weeks for a package from amazon dot com
i never thought to just call them up and ask them what went wrong
they're just people who are living life and working at their jobs
it's not my place to get mad at them or even care at all

this black hole eats up all my matter just like everybody wants it to
but sometimes, if i'm to be honest, i want to be consumed too

*ahem*

Track Name: As Told By Ginger Chews
I bought a pound of tasty ginger chews today
They're nearly all gone and I'm a little bit ashamed.

I'm not good at keeping pace while I fill my face, garbage tossed around the place
If you are what you eat then I'm a chewy ginger treat
no other candy's got me beat

"MAN I LOVE THOSE GINGER CHEWS!!!!"
"ME TO!!!!"
"LET'S GO BUY SOME MORE!"

....the bag is empty. wrappers gather at my feet.
the nausea left me cause GINGER CHEWS ARE ALL I EAT!!!!

I'm not good at keeping pace while I fill my face, garbage tossed around the place
If you are what you eat then I'm a chewy ginger treat
no other candy's got me beat
Track Name: Popcorn Dog
u chew on whatever u want
~~this song is dedicated to my lovely pup, shadow~~

despite what i say u dont seem to stop
i know that you'll never calm down
your eyes tell me you're feeling alright

after all of these years we've never been closer
i'm buried upstate
on salty roads i think of u

please sit still while i photograph u
the flash and lights make your fur look blue
sometimes i try and think of fun ways
to write about u without using your name

and u sniff and u sigh and u look at the ceiling
when i hold you i'll always bee kneeling
thru all of these years we've never been closer
i'm buried upstate
on salty roads ill think of u
Track Name: Bluepropion
it's fair to say i won today
this marble floor is scaring me away from all my plants and all my friends are waiting there
i make it hard to figure out the ups downs and daily bouts of feeling like i wanna climb away from my own skin
Track Name: Splavender
soup bowls and veggie slicers clutter up the shelves but we'll clean it in the morn
contrasting color spectrums help us figure out the world but our rods and cones are bare

i was in a hole that night. i was nice there; i'd wanna go to sleep there.
and part of me had left the room but it would come back now and then

phone notes will be our guides and lead us down the trail but they won't have a good idea
hot smoke is even hotter when it's clogging up my throat but i will never choke

i was in a hole that night. it was nice there; i'd wanna go to sleep there.
part of me had left the room but it would come back now and then.

*meow LOL*!
Track Name: Mecha_neb
my father cracked a tile again
i wasn't sure if i could fix it this time
i didnt have my tool belt, just my skin
good thing i'm made of copper on the inside
i've got a bunch of wires in my head
they're all pretty tangled but on the plus side
i never seem to short out anymore and even if i did i wouldnt notice

i am conductive on my own
my voltage isn't keeping me at home
and when my circuits are soldered shut
capacitance has left the empty sockets
now i'm shocked and feeling great

~~toot toot i'm a trumpet~~
