about

Playing with Eli makes me feel fast and free. Like I can do whatever I want. Woo anyone. Bike forever. I’ve only ever felt complete musical union with a couple other people in my life; it’s rare, and it drives the senses of a synesthete like myself wild. I feel like we could bike forever and fall down in a cool park. Then we’d hang out with all of our friends at once. Ben would probably bring some wacky, delicious vegetarian thing that we’d pig out on, and then we’d build a human pyramid and travel some. I’m not sure where we’d go, but there’s a lot to see, and the world is big and profound. A ton of good food to be eaten.
Go do see be.

Track Name: Weren't You Gonna Shave Your Head?
Talking like you’re circuit-bent
Master of a circus tent
I can’t tell if you’re in control
Painted like a cubist piece
But I’m plainer than a nudist’s yeast
I know I’m weird, but my love is strong

The way it’s going it seems to me
There’s not much hope of me ever being
A normal human being
If there is such thing


Talking was like eating bread
Weren’t you gonna shave your head?
Can’t remember what you said
Weren’t you gonna shave your head?
I can’t tell if you’re in control

Painted like a Fauvist piece
Like a wild, wild beast
I just want us to get insane in peace
Wearing nothing but a fleece
I know I’m weird, but my love is strong

The way it’s going it seems to me
There’s not much hope of me ever being
A normal human being
If there is such thing

I know we’re both tired of feeling around
If I’ve been unclear, please write this down:
I love you, and I miss you
Track Name: Extreme Dream Rider (demo)
Freeze / breathe in the memory
Weed / weed out the pleasantries
My hands / sliding above your knee
Your hands / pulling you close to me

Weird / beat out remembering
Felt like / breaking and entering

How long have I stared
Making things appear
Smile comes and you go
Where everything is slow
I don't know what to know
When your hand runs through my hair
And I don't really care
Extreme dream rider's there

Your neck / scratched by two days of face
Again, again / again and again, again

(chorus)
Track Name: Amazing Willpower
I just keep on finding your hairs in bed
Always understood how best to shed
You can somehow think what you intend
Your amazing willpower can bend

Your mind
Leave me behind
Angled and refracted
Cut up into blue and red

I can see your hair in a crowded place
When you touch sand, do you feel my face?
Has your tongue dried up, can you still taste?
Can your amazing willpower erase

Your mind
Leave me behind
Angled and refracted
Cut up into blue and red

I can still see patterns from your skirts
But there’s a new confusion in the works
It’s a big old world, and I want to learn
My amazing willpower will turn

My mind
Leave me behind
Angled and refracted
Cut up into blue and red
