about

Inspiration came at odd phrasings - insisting upon a list drawn out as an escape plan to madnesses by defusing them with humor, here is half of what I thought out as an answer to my anger at being judged for being half-mystic, half-rationalist. This was my February Album Writing Month attempt in 2011, and though sufficiently short in song length, it is only half completed in terms of the original list. As many creative ideas as possible had to go into working each track and this portion was completed in 28 days in 2011.

Track Name: the no food diet
the no food diet
is a way to live
the no food diet
is a way to give

you are working and working and working and working your weight out
you are starving for losing and feeling like sorting your weight out

but it's not your choice
and it's not even right
but you'll find your way
as soon as you're out

the no food diet
blissful states of being
the no food diet
an idea to sing

you keep thinking of eating and feeling like reeling from walking around
you keep reaching for ceilings catastrophe seeings delusions about

and you wish that you
could have some food
anything that you'd like
but this will not do
but there is no escape
we're trapped without taste
Track Name: she tried to escape, into his pants
why my love she is a manic depressive
her ups and downs upset my stable tenets
her delusional behaviors
ask for reality testing to be experienced
when she starts through the dins
of desperation
incite proclivities
her manic abilities
she writes and writes
deeper into her dreams
if she could one day
write her way out of her dreams
like some omniscient being
who conceived the world out of Herself
in the vision She perceived Herself
without the ups and downs the kindling reactivity!
it's then i could call her a heart that's worth the tame
it's then i could call her a heart that's worth the tame
Track Name: riddled with culture
hit me with culture mama
shake me up
bring me back to all the things i wished i'd never birthed
you give me culture mama
with your words
and make me wish that i had some of your worth

cook me nicer things
teach me what you sing
then we'll break to speak in tongues
my conception is
you don't need to bring
anything that preaches hurt

teach me how to write
show me famous sights
i am open to what you give
when i'm not around
write something down
mail it i'll decipher it

cook me nicer things
teach me what you sing
then we'll break to speak in tongues

when in life i'll think
what real use is this?
being riddled with culture.

but with knowledge brings
understanding
so i'll keep on playing the part

keeping rambling
tumbling rose it stings
pricked on fingers still it rings
Track Name: i shuffled into yr favor
i shuffled into yr favor
i shuffled into yr favor
from the start i didn't know what to do
found your heart and i sailed into
i just drift right through
without a clue
i shuffled into yr favor
i shuffled into yr favor
Track Name: i'm afraid of everyone
hit me with culture mama
shake me up
bring me back to all the things i wished i'd never birthed
you give me culture mama
with your words
and make me wish that i had some of your worth

cook me nicer things
teach me what you sing
then we'll break to speak in tongues
my conception is
you don't need to bring
anything that preaches hurt

teach me how to write
show me famous sights
i am open to what you give
when i'm not around
write something down
mail it i'll decipher it

cook me nicer things
teach me what you sing
then we'll break to speak in tongues

when in life i'll think
what real use is this?
being riddled with culture.

but with knowledge brings
understanding
so i'll keep on playing the part

keeping rambling
tumbling rose it stings
pricked on fingers still it rings

i'm afraid of your touch
i'm afraid of your aura

don't come near me
don't talk to me
i won't be listening to anything you say

don't come near me
don't talk to me
i won't be listening to anything you say

anthrophobia
the fear exposed today

the splenda i stole
will not be enough
to keep my heart at bay

i'm afraid of everyone
but i am just
yea my xenophobia
will bring me luck

i'm afraid of everyone
but i am just
yea my xenophobia
will bring me luck
Track Name: she eats like a pig
we sat down to eat
we talked about the meat
it was rubbery
was it even healthy?
then i looked at her
i saw her pigging out
i got a bit annoyed
and wanted to shout
"she eats like a pig
and she chews in a frenzy
she eats like a pig
and it drives me nuts
she eats like a pig
and she chews in a frenzy
she eats like a pig
and it drives me nuts"
Track Name: good morning jenny, have you taken your meds
i know you
don't want to
but you've got to pretend
to be my girlfriend
the thought just appeals me
a girlfriend for me
with pretense as a clause

our secret is big
the kisses you'll give
will land on my lips
as if by accident
and i'll feel bliss
unfurling from your lips
the sensation burning

our passion is
churning
with every false start
right from the heart
pretend i am handsome
or that i am awesome
the truth is not so far
you say you don't want to have to pretend to be my girlfriend, well, my truth escapes us all
Track Name: i don't want to have to pretend to be your girlfriend
i know you
don't want to
but you've got to pretend
to be my girlfriend
the thought just appeals me
a girlfriend for me
with pretense as a clause

our secret is big
the kisses you'll give
will land on my lips
as if by accident
and i'll feel bliss
unfurling from your lips
the sensation burning

our passion is
churning
with every false start
right from the heart
pretend i am handsome
or that i am awesome
the truth is not so far
you say you don't want to have to pretend to be my girlfriend, well, my truth escapes us all
Track Name: no /oh, it's in a different tuning
so you want the bake a cake song
i can tell you'll have to wait for this song
no/oh it's in a different tuning
no/oh it's in a different tuning

here it comes

how'd you get so fat with child
i'm married, i'm married, i'm married she said
when did you get married
in the summer with some guy
i can deal with that i've said
all the things go round my head
all the things that aren't right
i think i'll bake a cake tonight
Track Name: delightful handguns
delightful handguns
pull the trigger and we switch
delightful handguns
pull the trigger and we switch

is it worth the hell i face
if i shoot you in the face
is it worth the jail i face
if i shoot you in the face

well in hell i'll face cell d
well in hell i'll face cell d

will it break sadistic streaks
will it rehabilitate me
will they let me out in time
will they hang me out to dry
Track Name: i can't take this anymore, my brain is going to explode
here in this safe hell
i dwell in a cell in my mind
keeping me from polluting me with death knells that bind
meandering patterns of thoughts
they want to be well
but sane as i am i'm eluding to thoughts of unrest

i can't take this anymore / my brain is going to explode

for fear i am protected from myself
the fear i feel projected comes from a lack
basic human freedom being extracted
and self is left without reason
mangled by health scares

i can't take this anymore / my brain is going to explode
Track Name: something haunts you daily
Oh yea, you're lost for love yet again
From your birth, you've been damned
Forced to fight to understand
Whose derision has been planned?

Something haunts you daily
You cannot hide
You're prepared to tell me
You can confide
If you're lost you tell me
I'll try to guide
We can plan and you'll see
A whole new place in your heart


Yea, you've got your money spent, oh man
You've spread your seeds they'll grow, oh no
They've spread into your head, oh yea
They'll help with what you know

Something haunts you daily
You cannot hide
You're prepared to tell me
You can confide
If you're lost you tell me
I'll try to guide
We can plan and you'll see
A whole new place in your heart

confidence augments
with every step
you take towards reading people
you've learned your lessons
from interactions
that failed from misreading people
so brave right on
and find yourself
a whole new place in your heart
Track Name: why my love
why my love she is a schizophrenic.
her paranoia makes her so frenetic.
her gentle and ascetic demeanor
asks for no one to please her.
when she goes out and ends
the thoughts that redden -
discovering stringencies
her idiosyncrasies -
herself. a clause
lost in caustic sensibilities.
if she feels, one day,
she could create herself -
like some god possibly did -
in the image she conceived herself
without the paranoia, the frenzies, the insanity.
it's then that i can call her a heart that's worth the tame.
Track Name: it's 12 o'clock a**hole
It's 12 o'clock asshole
What's this ambiguous deceit
Are you lying when you say this is the insomniac's club? Holy fuck.
I wouldn't choose this over the numb, slow discreet movements my emotions feel when I am drawn out and out.
When I wake you'll be sorry.
It's 12 o'clock asshole, go the fuck to sleep.
