about

recorded over the summer. we put all of our efforts into this. we did this all ourselves, limited somewhat by our knowledge and experience. but that's what makes it ours. what makes it genuine, raw, unbridled emotion and musical spirit. we want to share this with you. and for you to share with all. thank you.

Track Name: mowgli
who knew
that after two years
i’d still be the same height?

i did

boy things,
awkwardly, in
tight man skins.

forgetting to stretch tendons

i shrugged my pelt in early spring
to coincide with walks
and forests and sticks and small things
that don’t fit into summer,
like a gentleman’s suit

like hunting deer (instead of love)
which is no easier.
i kiss them with my teeth and their antlers are brittle with fear.
i need their faces and fur to be a man again next year.
Track Name: aphorism
i grow in shadow.
Track Name: emulsify
i can laugh, cry, love.
but what can you offer me?
i don't feel suicidal
but, i could die tomorrow.

i'm a placebo;
hollow,
sugar coated.
quiet, be seated

please.

i want to fucking live.

dissolve my skin,
you'll have to swallow me whole
if you want to come in.
