apollo Spidering does something strange that I don't fully understand, but whatever it is, it makes me feel like more of a person. Favorite track: Indoors.

about

written and recorded throughout most of 2013 in a den and at a few shows, rerecorded a few times at a few parts, unfinished due to a 3 week long cough preventing vocalizing, and then finished regardless with some coughs thrown in because hey that's pretty cool right

Track Name: Caesar Salad
We are like brothers and sisters
All of our lives a permanent mixture
Separate ways are the separate mixtures
All of our lives all of us is the fixture

We are like mothers and fathers
All of our lives a casual other
Separate ways are the oil and the vinegar
All of our lives all of us are the mixture
Track Name: Indoors
I can't wait for night to fall,
Make my windows feel like walls
There's no leaving the house,
There's no wanting to go at all

Soft lamp light
Make my world feel small
So i won't want to go at all
Track Name: Little Lizard
LIttle lizard,
I'm so sorry
The things they do at night also haunt me
Little lizard,
Bright eyed wizards
Never gave you delight
Never brought the daylight (right? right)

And I'm afraid of what they'll do to me too
Watch me lying to the side
Just like you

But don't you worry
Don't you worry
Don't you worry
Don't you worry

I am afraid of what they'll do to me too
Watch me lying on the right
Just like you

Just like you
Track Name: I Don't Have Horns
This is not my body
These are not my friends
This is not my homeland
They don't know me here
I can't bear their bile
Their naily voice that trills
Turned down for smiles
I don't know them here

I don't have those horns like
You and all your friends
Take me far away
To my own land
I can bear to stay
If it makes you glad
But that's far too risky
It might drive me mad
Track Name: Skycar
The sky is unmoving in my car
I am unmoving in my car
Nothing is real, and that's okay
Nothing is real in the best of ways
The ground's moving up, I'm moving out
I'm out! I'm out.
The sky's pale today, I'm moving out
I'm out! I'm out, okay!

You stand on the side of the road,
What are you thinking about?

Nothing is real, and that's okay,
Everything is alright today.
It's going to take some time to get back home,
But I just want to know if you were okay crossing the road.
Track Name: Melodrama!?
There's no point living anymore,
I shut myself in the door.
Now I can't get up to walk outside,
I can't get up to shut the blinds.
There's milk in the fridge I cannot drink
There are cats in the den that cannot think
About not living anymore,
And I've told them all about it.

It's gone now and everyone forgot about it,
You could ask even me what it was,
And I too won't remember anymore.
I'm sorry I'm such a bore.
Who wants to think about feelings,
Feelings long since forgotten?
Who wants to go to those places,
They are all so downtrodden.
Track Name: Noise Wave Bossa Nova
It's great, I'll take you there
The noise will fill you up and turn you out whole
It's fine, it's all fine
Just scream and let the scream fall back to you
It's okay, it's all okay
Don't take too long but don't sweat it just let it all in
And it'll be okay, or you'll be irate,
But either way you'll overflow just let it all in

(and in and in and in and in and)

I get so scared sometimes it's hard to speak,
And I'm afraid of what I should be,
And I don't know how much I don't know,
It's too loud my ears are too weak
Track Name: Feed Me
(Feed me feed me!)

Feed me food, and colors too,
I don't know just what to do,
My colors cried,
They ran and died,
It's too wet here.

New friends and old friends,
Give me new things to draw with,
And I will scream and feel okay

And I don't know if these are my bad times,
And I don't think that these are my bad times,
And I hope that you are at your best times,
I don't hope that I'm in mine

Thank you, thank you

I will depend on my friends and they will depend on me too
(Right? Right.)
In the deep end I will depend it will deepen,
We'll all get through
(Right? Right!)

I will depend on them I will depend on them

I will depend on my friends and they will depend on me
In the deep end I will depend it will deepen
We'll all be screwed

But I will depend on them I will depend on them
Track Name: Noise Wave Bossa Nova Reprise
I get so scared sometimes it's hard to think,
And I get afraid of what I should be, or shouldn't
And I don't know how much I don't know about everything
And I get so scared sometimes its hard to -
