about

Why do I have to write a blurb for this? Just listen to it. It's about a bunch of weird people who are depressed. Some of them are too stressed to be depressed. Like me!

Track Name: Faking
i know a man
i've got a plan
no disguise
no blue eyes
who is the absence of i
he won't foresee a disguise
how will my conscience go on
after the fire is gone
when will i settle my brand
faking my life just to be with a man
faking my life just to be with a man
still chasing my
bluer skies
bluer eyes
why should my conscience go on
after the garden is gone
why can't i show him my hand
faking my death just to be with a man
faking my death just to be with a man
Track Name: Depression Daddy
depression is a blessing in disguise
no future shock behind these tired eyes
you could say it's all insane
you could say i've got to get off the sour plane
you don't need to know a thing
excuse me but are the words supposed to pressure me
depression is the perfect feeling
no body scars to send us reeling
i don't need to wonder how
nothing to fix when nothing's broken in the first place now
i could listen to the pipes whistle all day like so
time to feed yourself
got to eat yourself
meet and greet yourself
but together everything is so clear
it's so simple so clear
i can look in the mirror
and all i know is i'm here
is there nothing else
we're all suckers for the game
nature puts us all to shame
say did we do something wrong
all these connections they were so strong and now they're gone
all of a sudden i'm the king
don't have to say a thing
but what is there to say
cause it really ain't so bad
this depression is the best time i've ever had
Track Name: Over You
i like how you cook but when you run out of food
that's when i'll be ultimately over you
i like how you talk but when you run out of words
that's when i'll be grammatically over you
i like the way you're connected but you can only have so many friends
i like that you're crazy but one day you'll find the right cocktail of meds
i like how you stand up straight but one day you'll get the blues
that's when i'll be chromatically over you
i like how you make love but you're gonna run out of moves
that's when i'll be intimately over you
i like how you tell me i'm being abusive with the things i say
but when you speak in that tone of voice it's super unattractive
i like that you have ideas and they're good ideas
but when you run out of ideas i'll be looking for
some new ideas and you won't be providing them
that's when i'll find out that you're just a burden
and that's when i'll be incommensurably
and emotionally and exceptionally
extraordinarily and overcompensatively over you
Track Name: Genius (I Disagree)
why do i have to explain
verses and refrain
what you don't know how to read
i'm always writing these short songs
with lots of words
that express simple concepts
nothing can come between me
and my ideas
not even interesting people
they called it genius
i disagree
i really really really really really
disagree
i call it really really really really really
they called it genius
i disagree
i call it really really really really really really really really
i was alone in the building
i heard a sickening sound
i got a sinking feeling
they called it genius
i disagree
i call it really really really really really
they called it genius
i disagree
i call it really really really really really really really really
Track Name: People Who Are Sure Of It All
only in the foggy memory of my skull
i hear you waxing on the ways of the world
giving me advice when you are clearly not following your own
in my dreams i throw away all of my hard work
then when i come back to them i feel like a jerk
everything is transient you say it's all a blur but i know
social situations always leave me confused
who is acting stranger is it me or the booze
all the question marks have been forgotten, i am using my own
only in the foggy memory of my skull
i remember people who are sure of it all
giving me advice on how to be real nice but i know
Track Name: Debbie Downer vs. the Finklesteins 1984
in 1984 there was a terrible war between the downers and the finklesteins
two families in a town just like the one you're in now with happy homes and american dreams
it started with the youngest daughter debbie downer when she showed up in a magazine
she had taken off her clothes and she had struck a little pose and then she smiled until she couldn't breathe
well mr finklestein he was a little mean but overall he was a nice old guy
and debbie he remembered as the sweet little girl who sold him thin mints and caramel delights
so mr finklestein opened the magazine and to his overwhelming surprise
was debbie looking cute in just a birthday suit and with a smile in her grown up eyes
well he was overwhelmed by all the feelings he felt so he called upon the downer pride
and asked to meet with debbie when she was good and ready cause he wanted her to be his bride
he left his wife and kids which he regrets he did cause when her father saw the magazine
he told the lovestruck finkle fuck to go to hell cause little debbie's only seventeen
Track Name: Zachariah's Bacchanal
up against the colors of the mind
up against the grind
words come easy to me now
i am in the bacchanal
if the snow was coke
we would be outside all of the time
if the air was smoke
i would take a deep breath and i wouldn't want to die
i take shots and i go out
someone's watching me, no doubt
cops could pull me over, i don't care
i've got on long underwear
if you don't look around
i will probably turn up somehow
if you don't look away
everything is easier to say
if love was touch
then i wouldn't talk so much
you'd just feel me now
i am in the bacchanal
Track Name: It's Made of Cheese
we're on another planetary expedition to the moon
we're gonna see if it's made of cheese
it's made of cheese
got to report this to the president of the dairy farmer's association
the price of cheese will go way down
step right down much unlike Buzz Aldrin
clearly it was faked way back then
just another secret of the government's
the moon's made of cheese
the moon's made of cheese
really it was clear from analyses
what does this mean for astronomy
now we know it's made of cheese
of cheese
the moon is made of cheese
Track Name: Then the Doll Said
i told the doll to get a job
some way to vindicate the fog
the doll said memories will fail
your friends will end up stuck in jail
your dreams will jump the rail
then the doll said i've been tripping hard
she's dancing naked in the yard
she says i can't eat this sandwich
it tastes like the abject
and time has collapsed so the sandwich is already excrement
what happened to my lunch
fielding minor concussion
and the rape of the indian land
i told the doll she'd had it coming
with all the holy names she's humming
then the doll said governments will fail
you can't keep your family safe no more
then the doll had ancient fantasies
flooding her like an orchestral pool
please free me from my prison
i'm wearing someone else's skin
then the doll began to chant mantras
looking up at heavens she won't see
then the doll sang such nice and simple
songs to bring the end times upon
me
Track Name: A Mysterious Patern in Desart
i come from a land where the sun doesn't care but i don't care cause i'm better than the sun
i come from a land where the sun isn't fair to the fairer of faces but i don't care what your race is
you may love me but i don't really love you
you may love me but i don't really love you
you could be an astronaut, and i would be forgot once you were a million miles away
out on the platform you feel your forehead, you're really hot, you gotta stay
hold on, i thought you were headed for the sunny side of the USA
you may love me but i don't really love you
you may love me but i don't really love you
you may love me but i don't really love you
Track Name: Goodbye Bobby
goodbye
goodbye
goodbye
goodbye
goodbye
goodbye
goodbye
Track Name: We Don't Wanna Be Alive Anymore
all of our problems are bad
all of our feelings are sad
here's an idea that we had
we don't wanna be alive anymore
alive anymore
we're not gonna be alive anymore
alive anymore
everything's changing so fast
but nothing is changing at all
everyone's moving so far away
why should we get out of bed today
we don't wanna be alive anymore
alive anymore
we're not gonna be alive anymore
alive anymore
there is no way to deny
everyone in the world wants to die
nous ne voulons plus être en vie
мы больше не хотим быть живыми
no queremos estar vivos nunca más
we don't wanna be alive anymore
alive anymore
we're not gonna be alive anymore
alive anymore
we don't wanna be alive anymore
alive anymore
