I’m not really a songwriter Like I used to be Playing keys in the Nutty Nut Nerds seems to be my peek At least I was present At least I felt there I remember choosing three notes Randomly Driving in my car, I woke up Half asleep Living in a fog-land Hard to lock eyes Talk about dissociative disorders On the couch Tally your mental health Rate the questions from 1 to 10 Do you ever feel you can’t Keep up with the conversation? Do you ever watch yourself walk around In a dream? I’m afraid of losing you I’m afraid of losing you I’m afraid of losing you

I wanted to stay here, ride around If I was getting colder But, I cannot blame it on the signs Without just seeming it’s older If there was a time, I would never be coddled Spending all this time, tell me would you want enough? But, I have never been watching out the window As it’s gets too dark, I want to take my clothes off Mmmmm… Stay here, ride around If I could get it colder Ah, please stay here, ride around If I could get it colder

You look so ugly now My, how your face changed I can’t understand What happened to my brother From your perch above it all, Deciding to smite us like the God you are Torturing our mother I know that she wasn’t always really there I see it every day I’m sorry that you had No one There is no way to tell how you must have felt Standing as a role model when you were a kid But, no one ever recognized That you needed help You poured yourself into Your obsessions First it was trains, then the civil war Basketball and sports, Practicing the guitar til your arms sore First it was our dad, then our grandfather Maybe it’s her fault, maybe it’s a curse Even though I know you can never be sure with the ones you love and trust, I never thought that you’d be like them I look so ugly now, My how I have changed I can hardly stand to look At my brother You look so ugly now My how your face changed I can’t understand What happened to my brother

about

This EP explores dissociation, loss, and the quest for self-love. Working with sound artist Ryan Albert, we used tape recordings as a way to manipulate voice and instrumentation. To highlight a sense of detachment from the day-to-day, the slow, slightly lower drawl of the voice represents what it feels like to be in a state of persistent, mild delirium.


The saturated, tape distorted quality of the recordings evokes a sense of nostalgia, while also separating listener from original sound, the same way someone experiencing dissociation and loss is separated from regularity. In this way, the main inspiration for this EP is to capture a realization of warped reality; fragmented, but still conscious, the lyrics examine difficult feelings.
