about

Songs about struggling with dropping out of college, dealing with failures, giving in to girls, funny thoughts, dark thoughts, saying goodbye to innocence and reaching for a way to deal with the new and cold, harsh grip on reality.

These rushed recordings were made on the same Fostex MR8 and mixed in Audacity in a bedroom in south Tulsa between 2007-2008. I wish I had taken the time to create better quality recordings, I had to stay somewhat quiet if I recorded when my parents were home.

Track List:
Insect in the Flower
Negative World
Rebellion
For Vanity's Sake
Legends
Quaggan Lament
Living, Not Alive

Track Name: Insect in the Flower
I will drop out of the blue and teary sky
and I'll fail just like you expect me to.
I know I won't be any good at what you're
going to ask me to do

so this time, I'm saying good bye to you.

Goodbye! I'm gone and I'm dead!
Goodbye! I'm gone and you should be too!

she achingly beautiful
how the hell will I get to know her?
I don't wanna look like a creep
so I guess I'll leave

How will she act toward me?
I hope she won't think I'm too scary
I'm not as handsome as the other guys
So I'll say goodbye

If we could have just one dance
I know I wouldn't need a second chance
It'll never happen so I should just say
goodbye.
Track Name: Rebellion
Seeking us out to regain your place
you won't live long enough to see the day
when you are reunited with your sickly race

Because we have the shard,
and we're gonna be doing our part

Chamberlain when will it end?
We will not war with you any longer! (Not you again)
Chamberlain not you again,
every time you come around we'll grow stronger! (Not you again)

You make that awful sound, you kinda scare me
You almost had the crown but you were too weak
Now you're telling me it is prophecy that we will win
Never ever trust a skeksi, I'm not your friend!

you know that we have the shard,
and we're gonna be doing our part
Track Name: For Vanity's Sake
An attraction I can't justify
when I look in your eyes
is this real to me or am I blind?

Won't you please bury me?
For the sake of my vanity.
Slipping away my sanity
Your beauty is taking away my sanity

I'd be willing to make some time for you
if you think that you would like me, too
I hope you don't long to decide
I want to be by your side

Just this one time my misanthropy
will make one exception for me
whatever it is about you that's drawing me in
Feeling of elation I get from you I need it again

Darling I hope you can see through my secularity
Sorry but religions just not for me
All I want in this life is someone to love
Track Name: Legends
Come down from the moon, come out of the open sea!
I see you every night, I see you in my dreams!
Life is someone's cruel joke and I think I can see
that everything in this world is not what it seems

You see eye to eye and you hit the bad guy
you take up to the sky
You know which right is right, and whats on your left
you don't stop to wonder why

You're my favorite and I don't know what I'd do
If I were living alone without you
There's just no way for me to explain it
I just know you are my favorite

Won't you join me?

I look at pictures of you all the live long day.
Sometimes I wonder what my own father would say
He left me just like your fathers left you
its sad sad story, but we get to hear it, too
Track Name: Quaggan Lament
All the Quagga are gone
they are gone and we should be
Track Name: Living, Not Alive
tonight I'm sleeping not dreaming
because I can hear you screaming
I'm chopping you up again inside my head
and I'm living not alive because I can't
stop watching you die over and over again

I came in through the front door
I caught you cheating you whore
Destroyed inside I went out to the shed
NO please don't go! I have something to show you
and my shovel kissed the back of his head

now your lovers gone, please tell me I was wrong
and I'll forgive you, I'm just kidding its your turn!
So i grabbed her by the hair and
dragged her up the stairs
bashing her face on the mirror in the hall

make our way to the bathroom,
she could taste her doom
because now I've lost my fucking mind!

She begged and screamed and cried
no matter how hard she tried
I threw her harlot ass into the tub
so much blood!
Murderous itch I couldn't scratch it
as I grabbed for my hatchet

oh look this excitement gave me an erection!
So I took off all her clothes
set her body up to pose
and reenacted our wedding photos


Now the deed is done
the endorphins are all gone
I find I can't sleep alone
