about

This one's for everyone that's ever thought the distance between alone and understood was a matter of geography and kilometers, this one's for someone I missed to that misunderstanding.

about

I'm Alone Houston, Texas

Experimental electronic music for bats, for the inconsolable, for the dead, for the addicted, for the too hopeless or too hopeful, for the people that see therapists, for the limerent; sounds for the anxious, the grieving, the lucid dreamers, the starving artists, the people that can't get it together, for anyone that's ever felt alone in a room full of people. ... more

Track Name: Une Autre Chanson Pour Miriam
Oh, the words I did not mean
Oh, the feelings left in me
Oh, the distance tears at me
Oh, the silence when you leave

We, with quiet, held the leaves
Slipped against the change in heat
Lines swept bare and tension weaved
Somnolence and silent me

Everything in bandages
Patchwork, needle, smack again
Crumbled backwards, sad intent
Swearing I'll be back in ten

Oh I swear I meant those words
Before radios went cold, but
Silence found the planes I missed
Interference, signals twisted

Felt the words swim through the air
Sent them back, but less prepared
Typhoon here to make me blind
Make me feel like I must hide

Oh, the words I did not mean
Oh, the feelings left in me
Oh, the distance tears at me
Oh, the silence when you leave
Track Name: Star Leaf Healing
Fuck every flag between
Happiness, souls meeting
Fuck all the borders that
Keep me
Out of your arms and
Landlocked away from the
Warm feeling that your
Voice sings

From single cell to tax codes
Mass spectrometry and gangs
And every means to communicate
I still can't hold your hands
From global politics and
The movement of tectonic plates
From the unlikely chance we met
To no borders holding us back

And with your thoughts in the air
This distance is unfair
I'll sing to death from here, my dear
Until your soul feels near

From single cell to tax codes
Mass spectrometry and gangs
And every means to communicate
I still can't hold your hands
Track Name: Changes With Seasons
Silent, open
Cold and endless

When will this glow
How does this flow
Who really knows
Who really knows
What's in the snow
Why be alone
When will you go
When will you go
Fuck if I know
Fuck if I know

Why don't you loathe moths in your clothes
Who don't you loathe when you're unclothed
Hej sötnos, hej sötnos

When will this glow
How does this flow
Who really knows
Who really knows
Track Name: Tree Branch Circulatory System
No human can promise us oxytocin and warmth
And soul mates are comforting, but always of glass

And through kaleidoscopes
And sleeping telephones
Or nothing new I guess
I'll find you at the light
Lose it to oversight
Or just give up and rest
No one can promise us
A home that is enough
Or freedom from the snow
And it's a lottery
Shouting across the sea
Pining and still alone

No hums fill this emptiness, you know who is there
And always a call away, but distance unfair

An airplane launched for every business trip
I'm sitting silent at the window sill
A vehicle for all the dots between
My spot and yours and everything we mean

And through kaleidoscopes
And sleeping telephones
Or nothing new I guess
I'll find you at the light
Lose it to oversight
Or just give up and rest
Track Name: Name An Airport
You'll need a crutch to walk again
You'll never love the way you did
Before your friends finally learned
You are the fallout and the burn
Rent out your heart to any soul
That makes you feel like you're at home
Chalk failure up to your mistakes
It's all your fault you live this way

Refract through endless crest and trough
Put yourself down for every cough
You missed by slowing down your heart
You missed out slowing down your heart
Find flux and fluid, moving life
New home for every fucking knife
You thought would finally stop your heart
You missed out slowing down your heart
