about

this whole song is a huge "what if i did '________'?" experiment. i tried to put as many layers as i could onto this really gritty simple bass line. it ends up sounding really weird but i like how it turned out. i especially love the arp in the right channel.

my friend wrote the lyrics to this. i told him to just, and i quote, "let's say uhhh, something from the perspective of someone who was controlled his whole life to not see color or feel emotion and suddenly one day it's all revealed to him at once.... not that specific, sensory overload is a better prompt i guess" and so i guess that's what this song is about. it's kind of a spoken word thing and the vocals are way more an instrument than a vehicle for thoughts.

sorry man, i'll ACTUALLY sing the next one you write for me.

lyrics

my legs dangle off
precipice enveloping
developing heights and broken lights
and siren yelps
burning welts contact with belts
leather deletion of the skin
with what may pass above, within
melting exterior to lower layers
wrapped and swallowed
towering prayers

skin protruding, solidified
wrapped in bone lay crucified
shelled out grasp as if to break
into plastic falsetta
shotgun kickback forceful hand
witness fanatic
backhand vendetta

a time it struck upon bare skin
never once asked how much to tear
red rush back flush like volt on tin
the wires shook, foundation scared

brilliance plastered on white donned
a frightening staircase to flight beyond
knobs of thighs splintered sky high
hip connection, dismissed and wronged
eyes out the sockets
rocks crashing down
towns washed and smothered
mothers and sons unfound

shocked

blue rays, light weighs, lightweights, this way
walked onto stage and spread across the steppe
catwalk film of vein and skin, a living corpse is stretched
heartbeat shakes the ground and bright arrows quiver
directions change down shoot spit river
how does one feel for thee
