this album is about a lot of abrupt changes that have been occurring in my life lately. my only hope is that at least one person who listens to this connects with it in some way. one person is enough.


released September 3, 2015

i wrote all these songs with the exception of "true love will find you in the end", which belongs to daniel johnston.

Track Name: i dont like the shins much
well i cant put it to words i use the term art real loosely
count how may times that i have cried over this bullshit
i dont like to complain, but all i do is complain
sitting in my bedroom thinking bout how things have been
but boredom sits and lonely stirs i really wish i liked the shins
cos maybe then id have a garden state moment but that movie isnt very good
but only for a moment i would like to romanticize my problems
and feel a little better about the grief
if i could put it to art then maybe it would be a start for me to getting
some fucking relief
but i just feel so empty
Track Name: your drawings
well i finally took down those pictures you drew from my wall
well they stayed there and haunted me and it was my fault
now they live in a box inside of my room
and my walls are as bare as my insides
but im ok, ill be ok
ill be ok
no i wont
Track Name: insinuations
well im sorry i didnt mean
to insinuate the things that ive been insinuating
youve just hurt me and ive hurt you
im just petty yes im petty and i probably miss you
all my friends have all left home
and i cant go outside without seeing a memory ive made
but i cant look on with nostalgia
i dont take things like a human is supposed to
i just want to write something another person can connect with
and i want to live in them for a while and not feel dead
but i feel dead
Track Name: i want to believe
i am an alien
this planet is stupid
im a daniel johnston type of fucked
i dont like you
i like you too much
i love everything and everything is fucked
i am an alien
i have two penises
earth women just dont understand
and then that girl came along
she said hey are those two schlongs
i said yes and she said cool
give me your yeast infection
i love bread and i love you
Track Name: feeling like a person
i watched her cry all alone
she was shaking with her hand on her phone
her hair was short but her face was long
and i sat by the art class and wrote this song
the pain was shared but i didnt quite know what to do with it
a tall man with glasses came by and pet her head
with this sympathetic eye
i dont know what made her sad
i guess it doesnt really matter
deaths and breakups and failures are all the same
all part of the same collective pain
if we recognize that we’re not alone
we can help make this place more like a home
and not a prison cold and desolate
without a person to share it all with
that warm and fuzzy feeling that ive lived without for so long
is coming back now i like feeling like a person again
Track Name: true love will find you in the end (daniel johnston cover)
True love will find you in the end
You'll find out just who was your friend
Don’t be sad, I know you will,
But don’t give up until
True love finds you in the end.

This is a promise with a catch
Only if you're looking will it find you
‘Cause true love is searching too
But how can it recognize you
Unless you step out into the light?
But don’t give up until
True love finds you in the end.
