Physical Therapy //

i think of all the get rich quick at the draw and slow pitch
lean out the car and scream it if you've a haughty fever
pick up a gun and shoot quick if it gets any nearer
cause we are in the night now and things won't get much clearer

cut scene then a fade exit music plays
now i don't want to wait so let it begin
and if you are tired of pretending you can call it like it is
call it like it is

into the dark a window is like a two way mirror
look at your own reflection nothing to fear but fear but
someone is standing outside here and they are looking into you
you better lose your illusions before your illusions lose for you

cut scene then a fade exit music plays
now i don't want to wait so let it begin
and if you are tired of pretending you can call it like it is
call it like it is

if i could tie myself to the sky like a cloud i would never come down
steal the sunlight let all these shadows come down
hovering over the ground if i could own the future
i would tie myself to the sky like a cloud and i would never come down
rainwater feels so quiet here in this warm december
as all these fangs of fire turn into useless embers
when i see smoke i see pleasure come on fuck it up forever
come on fuck it up together
come on fuck it up forever

cut scene then a fade exit music plays
now i don't want to wait so let it begin
and if you are tired of pretending you can call it like it is
call it like it is

Modern World //

+ Ian Chang - live drums

+ Spencer Zahn - moog bass

+ drums recorded by Vishal Nayak at Black Lodge Recording

don't want to sit around and talk about it
don't want to know just how we'll fall
us with our back against the wall
singing just to say
that breath filters the direty clouds away
all and all
if it's just all or nothing
still there's a space to see
the graced
disgraced
teeming
modern forms
filled with these modern feelings
running opposite ways
at once
at none
in this modern world

i want to love you because love is blinding
i want to board the arc of arms
twisted then straightened like a charm
i'm hanging from the wings
i'm blinking at you now
now will you ring?
all and all
if it's just all or nothing
still there's a space to see
the graced
disgraced
teeming
modern forms
filled with these modern feelings
running opposite ways
at once
at none
in this modern world

soft as soot
the breeze and the hook
pelicans on the dock
they dive then splash
now surface in trash
turn my attention to the glass
save it for someone

who thinks these kind of clothes are death defying
and yet still everybody knows
the mixtures from which dank mushrooms grow
i'm happy and I'm sad
i’m bleeding from my heart and still i’m glad

Gunk of Stars //

+ Ian Chang - live drums

+ Spencer Zahn - bass

+ Chiara Angelicola, Pepi Ginsberg, and Amy Carrigan - background vocals

drums recorded by Vishal Nayak at Black Lodge Recording

i sleep in my clothes
sleep with one eye on the rangefinder
i look through the door
pink fisheyed saturated sky mind shouts
watch you watch me watch you watching me
lead you to lead you to lead me
stop throw yourself like bombs against a one way onslaught
soon you'll penetrate it like a drop of dye mushrooms in grey water


oh lasso
don't read about it. read about it when you close your eyes
what do you see?
i see saturn and mars i see the gunk of stars
a camera flash in the dark
that bursts and leaves red marks


come dine tonight on a feast of forms
let sunlight run and moonlight saturate your bones
seethe like sea snakes in a rough wake
my mind it is so close to yours
my mind hovers round you like a light in fog
we'll forget these fossils
these dumb dinosaurs
in this great museum
they'll hear our footsteps roar


oh lasso
don't read about it read about it when you close your eyes
what do you see?
i see saturn and mars i see the gunk of stars
a camera flash in the dark
that bursts and leaves red marks

we will last forever long as the power's on
diesel generators will catch us when it falls

Gadesco //

+ Ian Chang - live drums

+ Spencer Zahn - synth

+ Nathan Stein - guitars

+ drums and bass recorded by Vishal Nayak at Black Lodge Recording


look on look on gadesco
another calls you to her bed
her teeth are sharp, her voice cuts through the dark
you see that charcoal silhouette

the walls of her room she painted
with colors she mixes from her plants
beneath her gate, stray animals will wait
to see her walking past

to catch a breath is easy
a million more to go
each one you took
you chose it, you chose

look on gadesco
each of us returns to a place
a soft embrace to warm us as we wait
we mean no harm

to catch a breath is easy
a million more to go
each one you took
you chose it, you chose

Heaven is a Dancer //

+ Ian Chang - live and sequenced drums

+ Spencer Zahn - bass and synth

+ drums recorded by Vishal Nayak at Black Lodge Recording

heaven is a dancer dancing alone
i believe in heaven heaven is my home
never seen a mirror
never heard myself speak
never had a thought of you thinking of me
so i start this spinning

heaven is a tunnel deep inside the earth
i believe in heaven heaven is my worth
sing inside the shadows to empty for words
find for you a melody so true it never turns
touch me with your warm hands

tender movies of you mind my mind they play
you’re all around me and you take my cares away

Lights Out //

+ Ian Chang - live drums

+ Spencer Zahn - bass

+ drums recorded by Vishal Nayak at Black Lodge Recording

lights out professional darlings
slip off the song that you sing
forget the books that you bring
to the beach in the summer
lose the ring from your ring finger please

lights out you must travel lightly
can only take one carry on
no room for the daemons or diamonds
or fake painted eyelids
or the callous brute scar
of strong arms

do you dream in color?
do you dream at all?
is this world a better place
in your thoughts?
do you ever wonder
what it's like to fall?

lights out lights out
oh

cause the moonlight is waiting
just to give you breath
cause there’s so much time left
beyond the deepest blues
beyond the sunset hues
beyond this love i have for you

lights out

Waterbed //

+ Ian Chang - live drums

+ Spencer Zahn - bass and synth

+ drums recorded by Vishal Nayak at Black Lodge Recording

your voice is near
it whispers in my ear
laying here in a waterbed on the water's edge
no hidden costs
i take my eyelids off
trying to catch the first red thought

longer nights are here
here to settle something from the past
and this much is clear
that we will have to

wade through the charms of these millions of people
and believing's as hard as believing is simple

hotel 6 shot shoots up my block
i got a call on the other line and i gotta pick up
real boys don't talk
they listen well
and it's all that i wanted i'm not dead i'm just haunted
with a hangman's spell

this hired gun
has entered wonderful
and water falls and it feels like full

longer nights are here
here to settle something from the past
and this much is clear
that we will have to

wade through the charms of these millions of people
and believing's as hard as believing is simple

hotel 6 shot shoots up my block
i got a call on the other line and i gotta pick up
real boys don't talk
they listen well
and it's all that i wanted i'm not dead i'm just haunted
with a hangman's spell
