about

This is the EP I always wanted to make. Something heavy, dark and straight to the point. Each track began with a long recording of a modular synthesizer and drum machine performance, and I layered other instruments on top of it. I experimented a lot with vocal effects and processing sounds when they were recorded, using anything I could get my hands on.

Track Name: Good Idea
A promise I made
Some pissed-on parade
The damage I caused
I can't even say
They said "Put up a fight that's worth a damn"
And I declared war
We salted the earth so nothing beautiful grew
Indulged every impulse just because it was new
Excused so much for being young and dumb
We had love in our eyes and hate on our tongues


It'd be a good idea, wouldn't it?
To disappear without a word
Who am I, why should you give a shit?
I am the lowest of the world


Just face the sadness, let it rip right through
Avoidance isn't working, but that's all I can do
Lying seems so worthless when there's no one left to fool
I just went cold, I guess you did, too
I wasted so much time, stunted experience
Lusting for revenge on a theater for idiots
Digging through Hell, there's a lesson beneath
Still in my mind, the question repeats


It'd be a good idea, wouldn't it?
To disappear without a word
Who am I, why should you give a shit?
I am the lowest of the world
And maybe I am overdoing it
I don't need to say a word
Who are you, why should I give a shit?
I'm the destroyer of this world


Who are you?
Why should I give a shit?
Who are you?

Who are you?
Why should I give a shit?
Who are you?
Why should I give a shit?

Who the fuck are you?
Who the fuck are you?
Who the fuck are you?

I don't give a shit
I don't give a shit
I don't give a shit
I don't give a shit
Track Name: Worth
It's a tool just like any other crutch
I broke my fall onto it without a fuss
Cut the tears, they just make you look weak
Whose blood is this on my cheek?



I can feel myself
Falling
Deeper into the hole
I dug it for myself, I recognize my own work


I can feel myself
Falling
Deeper into the hole
You don't need to tell me I'm more trouble than I'm worth



I've never been so relieved
To awake from a dream
I can get the message and I know what it means
I don't care what you think
I won't even blink
Nothing beats the clarity of one more drink



I can feel myself
Falling
Deeper into the hole
I dug it for myself, I recognize my own work


I can feel myself
Falling
Deeper into the hole
You don't need to tell me I'm more trouble than I'm worth
Track Name: Circuitry
It's all a blur now
I don't remember a thing
Tried to drown it all out
With all the hate I could bring
I'm on a warpath
It's way too late to get out now
We're going down in flames
It's all behind us
I don't care what you did
It just meant so little
I forgot to forgive
But the resentment
Well, it speaks for itself
Just stay the fuck out of my way


At the height of isolation
Not lonely in the least
I've been asleep for so long
I'm becoming a machine
Every word from my mouth
The sound of circuitry
Erroneous calculations
Worth even less than what they seem


I see faces in the trees
Hearing whispers in the breeze
I am losing my grip and I know
Everyone agrees
I hope I'm not naïve
This world is sick, not me
I don't have to try very hard to play dead
Can you say you feel safe
If you no longer remember what you're running from anyway?
There's no peace in death
I think we can all put that myth to rest



At the height of isolation
Not lonely in the least
I've been asleep for so long
I'm becoming a machine
Every word from my mouth
The sound of circuitry
Erroneous calculations
Worth even less than what they seem

Scrounging, scheming
Drowning, dreaming
At the tail-end of a low point
Wanting, needing
Frothing, bleeding
At the crossroads of a low point
