Open Hand 02:29
With open hand You'll understand how not to understand You can touch that moment but you can't grasp it Don't articulate the vibe or it will cease to be a vibe Just buzzin in the hive It's called being alive Time After Time is a song about a song Or multiple songs Or maybe every song Still primordial after all these years
Left Japan 03:21
Unceremoniously left Japan Just had to confirm how dumb I think I am Work the room Do all your best stuff You've got a titan of a tight ten But don't I know We both know I don't It's what I want to be It's what I can't have It's how I feel now I'm alone how? Can only cut in half My furrowed unibrow
Good Work 01:30
Abstract concepts Flex my biceps I'm scared sacred G.O.A.T Good Work Bad blood Turning water into mud I dream about these things Do you know what that brings? Ancient wristwatch buried in the sand Hours and minutes go by hand in hand
Wainscoting 04:05
I can feel my teeth uneven in my head My arms are weak I think they're connected The walls of my brain are lined with thin, cheap wainscoting Collecting dust, I don't know what it means But I know vaguely how it feels I know exactly how it feels I know this sucks Eclipse my thoughts, become unstuck By The Strokes of luck Is This It? My shirts untucked My frame has changed Don't even know the word "pain" I'm still the same What do they expect to change? What do you expect to change? What do I expect to change? They lied Eminent domain is the name of the game I would not complain if I still felt the same Read my mind Isn't it a shame that I'm changing my name? I would not complain if I still felt the same I don't like nature I like pictures of nature on a screen You know what I mean The most boring part of me
