about

What happens when the larger part of the human population is submerged in a sentient, mind-altering sludge? This album aims to answer that very question. Join a chorus of cosmic onlookers as they watch the vestiges of humanity live out their final days. Download includes illustrated PDF.

Track Name: deities
Dont mind for a minute, please
Dont try anything to recognize me
There is no, no second wind incoming
Deities, deities
Far from home
Observe the un-becoming
Clemency, clemency
Down we ride, hard-liquored, down we ride
Once in a lifetime human-hivemind end of the world
Down we ride, hard-liquored, down we ride
Once in a lifetime human-hivemind end of the world
Track Name: the deluge
nothing ever changes
underneath the wave where your brain is
the people that i am are not the same as
anyone ive ever been, or ever will be again
who knows
the gentle ebb and flow
beginning of the end, that's where our minds go
I'm under your skin
to help you start again
until there is no you or I anymore
waste time, why would i waste time?
seep through the fault lines and see what you know
bluebirds and buildings
bodies and boundaries made of them
visions floating by of what you are
am I there?
can you feel me until there's nothing to feel anymore?
Track Name: humankind
when you go
a little piece of me goes with you
a little legacy i'd give you
if i were any good,
i'd mark an empty grave,
i'd try to paint your face
i'd wanna say your name
but who would say my name?
Track Name: roughshod
Stalking a cage to make a fire
Pacing around and flicking a lighter
gazing in the orange glow
I want to feel like light ray
Heating up on a stretch of the highway
Hastening my demise, and letting go
Running roughshod out there
Set me up and watch me explode
See the black earth burn bare
No one has to disagree, it’s my turn to take everything
Running roughshod out there
Set me up and watch me explode
See the black earth burn bare
No one has to disagree, it’s my turn to take everything
Track Name: crybaby jane
ive had a longing for an atmospheric kind of homely
an aching for a something or a someone who would know me
but im unsettled by the types of creatures who would hold me
that pack of cigarettes i promised me is getting lonely
and i dont see it getting better any soon
cut like sharp knife on ripe balloon
my doom is coming home to roost
and she holds sorrow in her hands,
says, "tread lightly while you can,
they'll eat your skin on my command"
but, more alarmingly, they call me
"crybaby jane
you lost your records and you went insane
crybaby jane
you're out there looking but it doesn't change"
no, I'm not looking for excuses to be near you
im doing all the things that hunger shame and fear do
I know inside im playing right into their hands
your every wish is my command
no, I don't think you understand
"crybaby jane
your heart is eating a hole through your brain
crybaby jane,
you've got a human way of feeling pain"
Track Name: stragglers get the saw
I'm having a hard time adjusting
the eyes in the walls are mistrusting me
and i do not navigate the new world well
and when I rest my head
she stands behind me
holding it close as if to remind me
that if I run, then surely she'll find me
and say what she always does,
"stragglers get the saw"
I gotta hand it to her, she knows how to get what she wants
I start to wonder if each one of us deserves what we got
and i know that its my fault
still, my feet hit the asphalt, and I run
but running would not satisfy the mob
closing in
doomed again
let it end on a high note, then
closing in
doomed again
let it end on a high note, then
Track Name: 3am supermarket
when she points, you freeze in place
shrink and cower while you go up in flames
you've done wrong
and I know it
and I saw
through your singed eyelashes, she was a god
Track Name: ageless faceless creatures of kentucky
something warm about you
i must be out of my mind
cause the ageless faceless creatures of kentucky
are pushing me into overdrive
what am i without you
you're setting people alight
and the ageless faceless creatures of kentucky
have left me lonely again tonight
Track Name: I miss my dog
I get so lost in you babe
if im wasting my time, its okay
I'm counting down for better days, bet you are too
I bet you've got it down to an art form
and it really gets you through
Won't you give me some of that too, some of that too?
Track Name: don't go home
Why go
vetting tall grass in the distance
stagnant water in the underpass
vines grow on the roads
don't go home
don't go home again
