about

This album was conceived in the shower when I realized I would be home alone for 5 days. I snapped some aesthetic photos, and immediately started work.
All writing and recording was done in a bare cement basement with pen and paper on a Fender 12 string guitar I found for $195 USD (case included)
All songs were written and recorded in ~1hr, with the exception of track 2 of HERE, due to unforeseen circumstances, and the crushing weight of self-doubt.
It's final iteration was recorded on the midnight before release.
We are all going home

Track Name: Subcontractor For The Lonely Power
Am Dm C E
I said hey, I said oh, said how do you do
I said hey, I said oh, they comin’ for you
I said hey, I said oh, I’m coming through
I said hey, I said oh, they’re coming for you

Said son they’re comin’ with their pistols and their guns
gonna strike you down lay you into the ground
when the sun comin’ up, they’ll be painting with blood
we’re gonna leave this world behind!

Well I’m sorry mama, never meant to be this way
But the man he is walking and I got all these bills to pay...

A E A F E A

I said hey, I said oh, said how do you do
I said hey, I said oh, I’m coming for you
I said hey, I said oh, said how do you do
I said hey, I said oh, I’m coming for you

I tell you life ain’t kind she’s just taking her time
If I’d watched my step, well, I might have been fine
but it’s too late now to be wishing for more
when I’ve left this world behind...

break

I said hey, I said oh, said how do you do
I said hey, I said oh, I’m coming for you
I said hey, I said oh, said how do you do
I said hey, I said oh, I’m coming for you
I said hey, I said oh, I’m coming, coming, coming
Track Name: Fading Memory (I’ll Be Gone And You’ll Be You)
EDCAB
Moon rises, the day it ends
Sun’s waiting to see you again

I’ve been walking, far too long
Hoping I’d find a place to call my home

Broken streetlights light my way
tryin’ to forget my “maybe, someday”s

Time is running, never enough,
voices tellin’ me I ain’t up to snuff!


I’ll be forgotten, in a year or two
I’ll be forgotten, in a year or two
I’ll be forgotten, at least by you
I’ll be forgotten, at least by you
Track Name: Spending The Future To Lament The Past (Regrets™)
Am E // G D

It’s getting late and still
I’m wishing for a spell
that you could have seen
the shit I could have been

It’s too late to regret
the people I could have met
and what I might have been
It’s better to forget...

Oh what I might have been
instead I was a cog
in my self-projected machine
forgot what made me, me

C G, C G D
Now all I’ve become
is what I thought you’d want
Oh

A whisper of what I was
Maybe I’ll be what you want
Maybe some day I’ll be loved
I know I ask too much

I know I ask too much...
Maybe some day I’ll be enough
Maybe some day I’ll be enough
Maybe some day I’ll be loved
Maybe some day I’ll be loved
And I know I ask too much
And I know I ask too much
I just want to be, I just wanted to be loved
Track Name: It’s Raining And I Hate Myself But At Least The Aesthetic Is Present
D (10 9 0 0 0 10) E (x 10 9 0 8 0)

It’s been a year since then
I still remember when
And sometimes, I can see you there
And sometimes, I still think you care

D(5th Fret C shape) Em
And sometimes, I still think you care
And sometimes, I still think you care

And sometimes, I still think you care
You showed me better...

In streetlight’s tired glow
beneath the falling snow
And sometimes, I can see you there
And sometimes, I still think you care

And sometimes, I still think you care
And sometimes, I still think you care

And sometimes, I still think you care
I should know better.
You showed me better...

If I could turn back time
Oh would I make you mine
And sometimes, I see you there
And sometimes, I wonder if you cared

And sometimes, I wonder if you cared
And sometimes, I wonder if you cared

And sometimes, I wonder if you cared
I should know better
You showed me better
But I just can’t help thinking,
can’t help dreaming- was there something that we shared?
Track Name: Emitter/Receiver

F G C G/ C G/ C G A// Am F C G x2 E>E7

When the night / Begins to rise
Say a prayer / And hold it true
If the world / Hears your desire
Time will come / It speaks to you

If the stars / Should fade away
And we all / Should turn to grey
When there’s no / Thing left to give
In the end / What’s loved will live.
Track Name: Carousel #2, Nothing To Declare
G D
I’m leaving this world behind
No there’s no turning back
I’m seeking brighter shores
Where I’ll be something more

It’s time to let me fall
It’s time to let me die
Oh I just want to go
where nobody knows my name


Oh how I’ve longed to kill
What I made myself
What I thought you’d want
Burn it to the ground
(Burn it to the ground)

I’ll remake myself
From the ashes of my past
Something better now
At least I tell myself
(At least I tell myself)


We’re lining up to go / Strangers all around
With my ticket in my fist / Falling from the ground
Moving faster still /
To what I hope I’ll find
To what I hope I’ll be
To what I think I’ll need

To what I think is me.
