about

These were all recorded within my phone's voice memo app and arranged into somewhat of an auditory short film. With side B i wanted to try and open the door wide to reveal every aspect of the raw emotion that begets an idea. i had no original plans for these recordings, other than the spark that told me they were important to keep for future construction. They're a whirlwind of feelings and friends and moments that i've compiled into a story that paints a portrait of my life.

the will to fight
a casted bone thrown from the ride

the rain at night
Track Name: thigh tat melody
...a tattoo of your hand of my thigh...
Track Name: back comb
runnin' around
with my pants half down
and my head in a back comb
i see you in the streets
while i'm shittin' on your sheets
just tryin' to make my presence unknown

but you're not far from this side
far from my side
just sittin' in your corner
waitin' for the waves to subside

i just wanna love you
but "that's not what love's about"
and i just wanna touch you
without everybody freakin' out
freaking out
freakin' out

takes away your appetite
you can't stop worrying
since worrying
takes away your appetite you..
you can't stop since worrying
takes away your appetite
you can't stop worrying
since worrying takes away your
appetite that is a vicious circle
you can't stop worrying
you can'tt
you can't stop worrying

you can't stop worrying
and therefore you get additionally worried
that you can't stop worrying
and therefore you get additionally
worried that you are worried
that is a vicious circle
the doctor tells you that you have
to have an operation
since worrying takes away your appetite
and your sleep
and the doctor tells you that you
have to have an operation
since worrying takes away
your appetite
that is a vicious circlex∞"

Track Name: your feet
i wanted to write a song about your feet
i really like your feet
and i like it when your feet
are in the shoes that you wear

oh, did i mention, it's really cool
that you got similar feet to me?
'cause i always thought that
i was weird
but now that i see
that your feet are like mine
i don't have to pine
and i don't have to wine 'cause..

you got feet like me
and i knew it would always be
with the yoohoo lady
that was for me
'cause you got feet
and i got feet

and, sometimes,
(i know this sounds
a bit personal)
but it's really cool
when you got some extra
nail polish on there
but it couldn't get off
in your sock
and there's a little bit of nail showin' through..
last time i was with you,
they were brown!

'cause you got feet like me
and it's true that i
love those feet
aww you got feet like me
and i knew that it would always be
with the one that was for me
Katie l.e.e.d.z
Track Name: i'll never be cold again
one of my favorite things
you do is when you
put your arm on my chest
i don't know why,
it seems to make me high
i just like it i guess

my favorite memory
is of you, and me,
in a teepee and we're kissing
just the way it seems to be

and i'll never forget that night
when i clutched myself real tight
in the cold moonlight
and a man who i had never met
told me that i'd never be cold again
i guess he was right
Track Name: knowledge
there's no fire in those eyes
it's more like
a soft ripple on a pond
or an apple tossed inside
a casket crafted by cancer

you threw
it's blue
i knew
i love your brain
Track Name: talkin' my language
man, my man,
man talkin' my language
man, my man,
my man talkin' my language

chicken sandwich!
Track Name: sorry state
why do we live in such a sorry state
when we know it'll all end someday?
Track Name: happy!
alright,
that last song was kinof depressing
so, i wanted to just write a song
to say how much to mean to me
well Katie, you see that i don't have much
but i got a guitar and i got my name
and you know what else i got?
i got you, and i got u.s.,
i got you and you make me happy
aw, aw, aw yes

oh you make me happy
and you make me happy
Katherine kiss me, Katherine kiss me,
and send me all your energies,
'cause you make me happy

i love it when you walk
and when you talk
and when you laugh
(that's my favorite one!)
but when you are down
i love that as well
and when you are middle
and i can stand with ya on that ground

'cause Katherine you make me happy
oh, Katherine happy, happy's what you make me
oh Katherine kiss me you make me so happy
K.a.t.i.e. you make me h.a.p.p.p.
oh right.. there's one more letter
i think that it's e?
Track Name: bassmouth
**bassline**
Track Name: i love you hehe
oh Katherine
oh Katherine
oh Katherine
oh Katherine, Katherine, Katherine, Katherine...

I love you.
Track Name: moment
one last song
for you tonight
to show you i am lonely
when i don't have
you by my side

you are the light
at the end of tunnel
you're the one that i
could be the butt of

the sun is not as bright
- when i have your eyes
but i will drown in wine
until i have your sight

'cause it's not worth it to me
to try and even see
the value in the moment when i
can't live in the moment when i'm
not livin' in the moment.
when you're not here,
when you're not here.
Track Name: interlude à la Pat
