about

“an alcohol-fuelled lo-fi acoustic album. with this one, i threw away all production-related concerns and just had fun. the whole album was recorded in about 4 and a half hours. 25 minutes of folky slackerdom. Enjoy.”

Track Name: I Cut My Own Hair
i cut my own hair, i don’t really care
why’d you have to take away my chair?

it’s made of golden leaves of the sun
wrapped around the heart of everyone

sometimes it’s better to speak your mind
sometimes it’s better to shut your mouth
but all in all in all it doesn’t matter that much
all in all in all it doesn’t matter that much
all in all in all it doesn’t matter that much

i cut my own hair, i don’t really care
how come we can’t all just smile and share?

put your fingers in the sun
you have to learn to magic while you’re young
put your fingers in the sun
you’re wrapped around a string all wound and spun

skip the machine drone come back to the fold
the secret ingredient is cold
drinking a dream, jump into the sky
sparkling with every emotion we fly

sometimes it’s better to speak your mind
sometimes it’s better to shut your mouth
but all in all in all it doesn’t matter that much
all in all in all it doesn’t matter that much
all in all in all it doesn’t matter that much
Track Name: I Spoke To The Spirit Of
i spoke to the spirit of the bear and he said clap clap, clap clap.
i spoke to the spirit of the deer and he said clap clap, clap clap.
i spoke to the spirit of the mare and he said clap clap, clap clap.
i spoke to the spirit of the mongoose and he said

what you have in your mind is a lie
nobody cares and nobody dies
the spirit of you and the spirit of i
all run together like clouds in the sky

i spoke to the spirit of the masochist and he said clap clap, clap clap.
i spoke to the spirit of the anarchist and he said clap clap, clap clap.
i spoke to the spirit of the cab driver and he said clap clap, clap clap.
i spoke to the spirit of your mother and he said

what you have in your mind is a lie
nobody cares and nobody dies
the spirit of you and the spirit of i
all run together like clouds in the sky
Track Name: If I Had The Balls
if i had the balls to tell you
i wish i had the balls to show you exactly how i feel
with you in my arms, i never let you go
cuz you’re my star born soul

if i had the balls to tell you
if i had the balls to give you everything i am
could you take my hand, turn mercury into gold
cuz you’re my star born soul

if i had the balls to tell you
if i had the balls to show you exactly what’s in my heart
watch me while i fake, trying to be okay
without my star born soul
Track Name: Rock Right Thru Me
i like the city where the noises fill my brain
makes me feel like i am aimed at somethin better
i walk the streets and they’re filled with everything
from the answers to the poison to the cradle of nothing

rock right through me
rock right through me babe
rock right through me
rock right through me babe

i like to know there are places you can go
where you can always drop the pain and simply let the whole world go
free on the street and the people you will meet
they will bugger up and down the sidewalks melting your ice cream

rock right through me
rock right through me babe
rock right through me
rock right through me babe

i am the strongest link between the past and future on a chain

i like the city where the noises fill my brain
makes me feel like i am aimed at somethin better
free on the street and the people you will meet
they will bugger up and down the sidewalks melting your ice cream

rock right through me
rock right through me babe
rock right through me
rock right through me babe
rock right through me
rock right through me babe
rock right through me
rock right through me babe
Track Name: Falling Out Of Me
talking honestly i’ve forgot my way
nothing left to say why it be that way

this rust is scraping off my genes
now i’m falling out of me

that is quite okay nothing in my way
don’t need to feel safe i can feel the day

this rust is scraping off my genes
now i’m falling out of me

i am quite okay, no matter what they say
no need to complain, cuz that won’t free my brain

this rust is scraping off my genes
now i’m falling out of me
Track Name: Slacker Rock Song
i don’t want to be a music critic
i don’t want to tell you what to love
i don’t want to take your favourite albums and tear them all to shit

with fancy language and cynicism
i am not a part of your decision
i want you to love what you love because it’s what you love

if i were to tell you your taste in music sucked
it would only be because of my own insecurities
the fear of losing out on what we love

cynicism is a dick we all put into our mouths
when we’re feeling insecure about ourselves
Track Name: I'm A Space Cadet
i’m a space cadet, i’m a space cadet babe

that’s why i need need my autonomy
and that’s why i’m obsessed with astronomy

i’m a space cadet, i’m a space cadet babe

i’ve travelled a million million miles
just to come here and hang with you awhile

you’re hotter, hotter than the sun
and i love you! i love you! i love you! i love you! YOU’RE THE ONE!

as a space cadet i’m not well understood

i’m a space cadet, i’m a space cadet babe
Track Name: Whiskey Till I Zombie
drinking whiskey till i zombie
drinking whiskey till i’m worthy

everybody’s talkin everybody’s happy
everybody’s friends it makes me seem like i’m so far away

drinking whiskey till i zombie
drinking whiskey till i’m maybe

everybody seems to make friends easily
always make me feel so unreal and so far away

i’m a pretty cool guy when you know me
but i guess you’d have to get to know me
and i seem to be so far away
you seem so far away

drinking whiskey till i zombie
drinking whiskey till i won’t be

i forgive you if you don’t know what i mean
i’m always feeling something i just can’t explain
Track Name: The Rainfall
the rainfall
washes my head
rinses the world
so sunlight can make new again
Track Name: Butterfly Punch
i just don’t care whether you understand me or not
i’ll just keep coming and going as i always thought i ought

there is nothing to worry about hey hey

don’t worry, it’s all just a ride

our heads explode into butterflies
nothing is real and we still can’t decide

we can drink our dreams down easy
rock this queasy hazy breezy
day and night has come for us to be free

will anything leave you satisfied?
the butterfly punches your mind

there is nothing to worry about hey hey

don’t worry, it’s all just a ride

if you’re full of shit you’ll drown in it eventually
your defences won’t guard you actually

we can drink our dreams down easy
rock this queasy hazy breezy
day and night has come for us to be free
Track Name: Waving
you were waving like a flag to me
i was naked as the green green fading of sea
talking yellow as a taco shell in the breeze
you were folding like a flag
and i was made of calico and thread
it doesn’t really seem so fair

you kissed me in a dream and i lost it

you were waving like a flag to me
i was naked as the green green fading of sea
talking yellow as a taco shell in the breeze
you were folding like a flag
and i was made of calico and thread
it doesn’t really seem so fair

you kissed me in a dream and i lost it
