about

This was recorded as part of the 2015 RPM (Record Per Month) Challenge.

I’m not going to tell you that this needs to be listened to with headphones, really loud, in the correct order tracklisting, in its entirety, with a certain EQ, alone, nor with people.

It is what it is.

It more or less sounds the way I wanted it to. Maybe one day I will get it actually mixed and/or mastered.

Special thanks to my girlfriend who tolerated the deafening guitars even during a particularly rough migraine. She was such a good sport that not only did she let me use the part where she interrupted the recording, she even sang on the final mix of the song. Also thanks to my upstairs neighbour who put up with me recording at all hours of the day and didn’t call the police when it sounded like I was murdering someone in the basement/upsetting her dogs.

* I didn’t ask for permission for reading the excerpt from Rosen’s. Either way, if anyone can tell what I’m saying in that passage I’ll be extremely impressed.
** I don’t know the original source for the Bunny/Dog picture that is being used as the artwork. If this belongs to you and you don’t want it associated with this project, please let me know.

Track Name: Neck Breath
When you’re breathing down my neck
I can’t feel, I can’t feel
When my mail is on my desk
I can feel, I can feel
When you’re breathing down my neck
I can feel, I can feel (eeeeel)

the people we know
the places they go
the blankest of stares
cause they know they're alone

the words they define
the gifts are all lies
that live in the ground
and then lurks in the night
Track Name: Moar MOR Bass (There’s No One New Around You)
When we sneak around
we don’t talk like beggars anymore
we just stare

When we sleep around
we don’t act like lovers anymore
we just stare

If we get back, together
We gotta talk about it, we gotta talk about it

When we sit around
we don’t talk about it, we don’t talk about it

Can we sit down and piece it together
Should we hold it or pull it apart
Track Name: Synthy Too / St. Alban's
When you cum it leaves a stain on my bed
When you come leaving lipstick on my coffee cups
When you cum it leaves a stain on my bed
When you come it leaves a stain on all my coffee cups

i focus on making these words complicated,
so you’ll realize you underestimated,
i’m greater than you thought i’d ever be,
catching stars that’re heavenly,
there’s nowhere that i’d rather be,
got no recipe, for this reverie,
i’m in revelry, stocked with remedies
for your maladies, i got allen keys
for this furniture, in this future
i act more mature, got sparks
from this armature, got hearts
in the curvature, of my palm,
got a way for us to get along,
got the christmas lights that you rely upon
strung from ceilings, got these feelings,
like the way the red yellow green and blue
reflected off of you, and these church pews,
the warmth between us two, wasnt due
to the lack of air conditioning,
the sweat that was glistening,
the way that we were listening
to the songs of evening hymns,
it was within, thermal energy
emanating from you and me,
there’s no replicating this chemistry,
elementally, i like the way our
atoms align, cells intertwine,
molecules reflecting light that seems divine.
and i don’t often find myself intermingling
science and religion, but i also
don’t often find myself in this position,
and it’s riveting.

When you come I don’t get to sleep the way I want
When you come I feel so tired I can hardly walk
When you come…
When I cum it leaves a stain on my bed
Track Name: Talk Island Dans Le Nouveau France
In a change room with a pen and a party dress
Tell a lame joke, beat a horse that is badly dead
You wanna get it back get it over again
Life is gonna kill you better get it read
And I, will ever be alone
It’s alright, cause Pat is coming home.

It’s raining, but we can hear friends having sex
you’re a moon crime, holding still mirror images
And you, will ever be alone
It’s alright, cause Pat is coming home.
And you, will ever be alone
It’s alright, cause Pat is coming home.
Track Name: Balloons (Taylor Swift looked very handsome at the Grammys this year)
Maybe the question doesn’t matter
Baby the question doesn’t fly
Baby the question doesn’t matter
Maybe the question isn’t right

When we can’t even start to try
When we can’t even start to try

What if I can’t, … quite tell you
What if I can’t, … quite tell you

When I come into your bedroom
Writing like a ghost

When I come into your bedroom
Writing like a ghost

When I come into your bedroom
Maybe I can find a rec room
maybe we can play

When I come into your bedroom
Maybe I can beam an x-ray
Right into your brain
Track Name: Hayden
I hope you get married someday
He loves you in a way that seems crazy
Quit smoking, and maybe less lazy
You can have your first kid in the city

Why’d you stop taking those pictures
The site was my favourite of all
Kept me in touch, with our friends and
a city I’d realized I’d lost

You still find a way to amuse me
I’ll call you real soon for a talk
Track Name: Coming Home
When you say that you’re coming home
When you say that you’re coming home
Well you know
You don’t have a choice

When I say that I can’t call home
When I say that I can’t call home
I know you know
I don’t have a choice

When you say that I’m coming home
When you say that I’m coming home
Well I know
That it’s all a lie

When you say that you want me home
When you say that you want me home
Well I know
You don’t have a choice
Track Name: Migraine Song (Shannon Mix)
The bed is hard
My spine hurts
You made me sick
You make me sick

The tube is in
I can’t talk
The milk is in
in my blood (the noise)

And the noise and the noise and the noise and the noise

And the noise and the noise and the noise and the noise

The ventilator
a second gasp
You made me sick
You make me sick

The tube is in
I can’t talk
The milk is in
in my blood (the noise)

And the noise and the noise and the noise and the noise

And the noise…
Track Name: Hotel Deville (Please Make Me A Category 3 So I Can Die In Peace)
Wake
it’s so quiet
Breathe
Am I dying?

Coming home again.

Wait
I can hear you
Make me three
No ICU

Coming home
Don’t let me go in

Sleep
