Close your eyes, curly head Safe, sleeping in your bed Dreams will keep you tonight Leave your worries behind I'll be here by your side Long as you need me to Rest as the gentle wind Bearing this simple hymn Carries my love to you Close your eyes, curly head Safe, sleeping in your bed Dreams will keep you tonight Leave your worries behind I'll be here by your side Long as I'm able to Rest as the gentle wind Bearing this simple hymn Carries my love to you

Windows down inside the Lancer Fuck this high school parking lot Summer drives without auxiliary seemed Like they meant a lot More than sorting through CDs You were next to me Now sing along This is our song (Hmmm, mm) Our friend Jimmy knew all the problems we had We knew every melody Wonder what you'd think now if I could recap What that meant to me More than anything I've done Two heads compared to one Now sing along This is our song Just sing along This is our song (Hmmm, mm)

I ate my brother Inside of our mother's own womb But I could just stomach a rib So she made (it/him) a sister And kept her for ten years Cause two proved to be too much And we needed her to be less like us. But it turns out she birthed a keeper I tousled his hair for (twenty) long years Then I left for college... And marriage... And divorce... While he grew less empathetic. So I needed him to be less like our dad When *I* should have been *more* like that But I couldn't walk that path So we both took our own...

The little goblin music reminds me of you We used to listen to it within adjacent rooms And on your birthday we would take a long drive Get caffeinated, watch the sunset, talk (on) the passage of time (instrumental)

I wanna be a Kiwi I wanna be in the Lord of the Rings Or any movie Forget reality, so to prepare myself I'm turnin' off the TV The fake-news corporate-media-machine And walkin' 'round in my bare feet Cause that's what they're doin' in New Zealand (hey, hey, don't move away) I wanna be a Mountie I wanna live in a thicket of trees Out with the grizlies Forget the smell of concrete, and for now I'm turnin' off the TV There ain't enough Colin "Mockery" (sic) Or Ryan Gosling Cause they're what's up in Canada (hey, hey, don't move away) I wanna be a poet, In Barcelona, or Venice, or Nice, Those are some cool cities They're in Europe I think, so to prepare myself I'm turnin' off the TV There ain't enough subtitles for me I'm learnin' to stay classy Cause that's how to be when you're European (hey, hey, don't move away) I wanna be a Kiwi I wanna be in the Lord of the Rings Or any movie (hey, hey, don't move away)

about

A collection of some really low effort demos. I mean *extremely* low effort. Just some songs I feel like you might want to hear, but that I don't have the time or emotional energy to work on anymore. Make the best of the time you have.
We're all in this together.
Wear a mask, support BLM, punch fascists, repeat.
