about

A big thank you to all the demons in my house and darkness in my head and thank you to the sky for being blue and stuff. Also a special thanks to my family and friends who are so unbelievably supportive. And thanks to my cat for loving me no matter all the noise she had to put up with in the making of this EP and anyone who willingly listens. Stay rad.

Track Name: Comatose Nightmares
(If I walk away, I'm not coming back
I'm exhausted
Are you exhausted?)
I can't sleep
can hardly breathe the right way
I can't see
what was the point of that anyway
I know you need to go
and I need to stay and stay and stay
but in a way we both go
turning tables, turning doors
I said the truth is, "I don't listen to those sad, sad songs anymore"
But honestly I do
We're both tired of walking in and out revolving doors
I'm a dream
I'm in a state of surreality
comatosely laying here
not sure what my name means
And did this ever really exist or was it fiction
was I awake at all?
Or are you gone forever?
I tried to pad your fall
I tried it all
We tried to crawl
Before you go, just one thing
Lock the door
leave me be
Don't come back please
It only hurts now
(There was a full moon last night)
Track Name: Self Hypnosis
When I snap my fingers,
you will be open to new and bright ideas,
you will be caring to yourself and to your neighbors,
when I snap my fingers,
you will be free,
on the count of three,
you will be free
Track Name: Mind Chatter
Drown, drown in the river, drown in the water, drown in yourself.
It's not an illusion, just inhibitions, just a cage,
the nostalgic fumes keep you in the vicinity.
Track Name: Fevers
I remember running home in the dark
streetlights lighting where you aren't
and running from myself
no surprise they tore the tree
it meant nothing to me
and the park went too because I ran outta the seen in a rush
the nights ahead were strange
and foreign in a way
as I tried to numb it over
tried to end this fever like a war
I fed with self hate
fake smiles
lousy gestures
fake goodbyes
lost intentions
sedation
and lost ideal visions of reality
as a kid I walked in circles for fun
to clear my head and make me sick
I wrote on paper what I meant
get it all out of my head quick
I remember running home in the dark
streetlights lighting where you aren't
and running from myself
Track Name: btw
sometimes life disconnects
the whites of your eyes appear like empty space in a vacuum
like the universe in its vacuum that you swallow with all your secrets
but you don't have to tell them
and you don't have to feel them necessarily
but life will hang up on you too
locked it in a safe
locked it all away
so you could numb it over?
it was unsafe and you were insane
but you convinced yourself it was okay
cause for awhile you couldn't remember your name
and the walls were melting as a reminder
that the scariest parts of you were in your head
you couldn't get out of bed
you're a goddamn liar
Track Name: that song about horses or something
tell me when the wind blows north
and I'll come riding in on my horse
people always come and go
Track Name: Lucid Dreams
2 am running at the shore
beating the sand
running horizontally from your darkness
you missed the sun going nowhere
and lost your intentions while trying to find
something called yourself?
you know reality is annoying
but if you dislike its existence
like so many people do towards things they dislike
everyone will worry about you
and the waiting is melancholic
but love shouldn't feel like a prison
you shouldn't be locked indoors
when the feeling is all that you're missing
and you don't know what to think anymore
when the walls are just so hollow that they won't hold the windows in
just remember to breathe out
and out
and out
out
yeah that's all I got
Track Name: noise anxiety//plastic earring social
plastic earring social gathering
everyone is dancing or watching tv
you blink so slowly
tired and dizzy
you don't usually attend parties
you said, "have you ever noticed how people lack
the kind of self respect that they should have?
have you ever noticed the things they say?"
talking so much shit I'm surprised I haven't vomited yet
plastic earring social gathering
everyone is dancing or undressing
you blink slowly
tired and dizzy
you don't usually attend parties
you said, "have you ever noticed how people lack the kind of self respect that they should have?"
talking so much shit, I'm surprised I haven't vomited
