about

I recorded and mixed this album from October 2015 - June 2016 in Logic X with two cheap microphones and a real piece 'o crap USB interface. It's about losing myself in the internet.

Track Name: (One Day) I Got A Helpless Urge
You said you felt unrest
or a helpless urge.
So you started walking.
You started walking.
You felt unrest or a helpless urge;
so you started walking away from something

You better run when you can
Run when you can
Run when you can
Run when you can
You are gonna be happier one day.
x2

And I regret I can’t give you what you deserve,
so I’ll start walking.
I’ll start walking.
Because I feel unrest or a helpless urge
since we started talking, becoming something.

I better run when I can,
run when I can.
Run when I can,
run when I can.
I am gonna be happier one day.
x2

We better
(Run when we can x4)
We are gonna be happier one day.
x2
Track Name: And Then I Met A Girl (OR SOMETHING)
Well, I’m finally happy, all on my own!
I’m prancin’ around on tippy toe!
I got some money and lots of friends;
oh boy! I hope this never ends...

And then I meet a girl, or something,
And I change my mind.
x2

Well I’m down in the dumps and don’t know how to begin.
Everything’s getting under my skin.
I feel so lonely I need to cry.
Give me an answer, God, give me a sign...

And then I meet a girl, or something,
And I change my mind.
x2

Everything is getting–getting under my skin.
x8

And then I met a girl, or something.
x4
Track Name: #Love
...If it isn’t love, if it isn’t love!
x2

It seems like you are trying to alienate me;
you’re dominating this conversation.
If you really wanna date me, you’ll do some changing;
You’ll swallow your pride.

...If it isn’t love, if it isn’t love!
x2

How could you think I’m manipulating?
Are you crazy? Or just stoned and paranoid?
We are not communicating. It’s complicating our future.

...If it isn’t love, if it isn’t love!
x2
Track Name: Yeah I'm Just A Stupid Boy
Well I keep my distance from intimacy,
but now I'm lonely and thinking lately
maybe I should go out dating
--but I gotta make more money!

We're looking good, we look fantastic;
fucking weird and geriatric
--do not move anything drastic!
I think I love her, yeah!

Oh
Yeah x6
I'm just a stupid boy!

Yep I'm mean and patronizing,
interruptive, so despising!
I don't wanna seem conspiring.
Try to forget about me.

She puts the spunk in my life.
Smart and real, so inspiring.
Really funny, super nice;
I wanna be her man.

Oh
Yeah x6
I'm just a stupid boy!

“Chicka-pew!”
“Try to fukit I’ont wanna”
“Whoo!”

No, this song isn't just hers;
it's for me and lots of others.
People be kind to your lovers,
mothers and brothers, dads.

Oh
Yeah x6
I'm just a stupid--
I'm just a stupid boy!

Track Name: DisEnchanted
I'm so disenchanted with myself today.
I'm so pedantic, romantic, selfish.
I'm lost in listless sway.

I thought I had everything that I wanted so I shut the door.
What a fool was I to forget that I always want more.
I'll never learn!
But I'm okay.

Don't ask me about it; please don't bother me.
Why am I complaining? I should be happy!

I thought I had everything that I wanted so I shut the door. What a fool was I to forget that I always want more
I'll never learn.
But I'm okay!

I'm okay x3
Track Name: Signal Song
We gotta funny kind of love, I feel it beating
Like a signal in the breeze.
x2

Play this song over again; make the music make amends.
Lower your crude self defense; into the water and wind.

Ooh.

We gotta funny kind of love, I feel it beating
Like a signal in the breeze.
x2

Ooh.

I just feel inclined to you.
x2.
Track Name: Lady Liberty
Lyrics:

When I was a boy playing make believe
in the city or in the maple leaves,
my arrestless heart was beating;
I couldn't stop myself from dreaming of sky.

Sky blue eyes.

It's like a memory;
it's like a fantasy,
it keeps me going.

Oh, what a feeling, Lady Liberty.
Oh, what a feeling, Lady Liberty.
Lady Liberty.

In Disneyland, she said to me
"Your destiny's awaiting."
So I tried to find it for seven days,
staying up at night, getting drunk and high.

Hi, blue eyes.

It's like a reverie;
it's like a melody,
and here it goes again:

Oh, what a feeling, Lady Liberty.
Oh, what a feeling, Lady Liberty.
Lady Liberty.

(Bridge instrumental)

Oh, what a feeling, Lady Liberty.
Oh, what a feeling, Lady Liberty.
Lady Liberty.
Track Name: Ping Pong
We’re getting tacky, feeling scrappy with money.
Don’t care to trust each other, don’t wanna share.
We play some table tennis with Dionysus.
We sing a drunken threnody like a dramatic fanfare.

You make me lose myself in teal green oceans;
I feel mutations in my bones and layers.
We play some table tennis with Dionysus.
We sing a drunken threnody like a dramatic fanfare.

Just he and I in the mirror.

Why do you kick and scream to fight?
(Sweet evil.)
You will never, you will never really settle right?
(Sweet evil.)
You act like you could never die.
(Sweet evil.)
What am I? What am I?
x2

(Sweet evil.)
You will never, you will never really settle right?
