  • Streaming + Download

    Includes unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

    this album will also be available for purchase from itunes, google play, and to stream on spotify and most other major platforms. track listing is a bit different than those platforms, as bandcamp doesn't license cover songs, but i've added the 7th mystery track as a free bonus. pricing might vary as well.
    this album represents a few years of songwriting and home recording. this will, hopefully, be the last album that i release before i'm able to significantly up my recording quality, ie, this will be the last album that i record on a 2009 macbook with garageband '08. good times. good riddance. onwards and upwards.
    i hope you enjoy it.

Track Name: machiavellian
machiavellian
be feared or to be loved
you can't please them all
or please them enough
when i learned my name
i learned to spell it right
consonants and vowels
rearranged spelled day
or reordered spelled night
the alphabet was mine
just like my breath or sight

machiavellian
to love or be feared
please the vulgar crowd
and expect them to cheer
fill the worksheet out
copy letters i
identify and reflect
ego en masse defined
by us but if its true
it meant a bit of me
was part of what was you

machiavellian
criminal virtue
fear devours feeling if you gotta choose...between the two
stuck between the poles
equatorial heat
under pressure folds
to cynical defeat
just chill and isolate
ponder until its fixed
can't leave it up to fate
frozen in place transfixed
aurora borealis

we can work it out
don't have to shout
fill the worksheet out
Track Name: I C Fire
i thirst
for you
break down your barriers don't play it cool
be heard
be rude
sing everyone your favorite tunes
you're the first
and last
alpha, omega and the distant past
and i need
for you
to open up your secret heart
but i see fire in your eyes
there's a kind of reckless beauty in them that i must admire
living alone in your designs
(leave me alone with my desire)
in your mind i see a glorious that's tearing you apart
what connects us
you have to admit it's...

...your will
to live
glows through your selfies and your virtue shtick
and i
crave for your
whisper when we're far apart
so don't keep
it to
yourself 'cause our sharing is our golden rule
babe don't
be cruel
we gotta finish what we started

...hugs and kisses
pills and clicks and romantics
Track Name: no, you don't (version 2)
no you don't, no you won't

play the part of him
he taught it when you were too
far gone too begin
to unlearn what you thought was true
so you don't
and you won't

and you will not live
outside of the him you knew
lead your favorite hymns
their words don't mean much to you
so you don't
and you won't

so you lie sometimes
play cool you'll like you're only you
like you aren't inside
an outline he drew for you
how-now if you are him can i say i know you?
or me or anyone in truth?

if you don't
then you won't

play the part of it
the lines that you knew you knew
you would not forget
its safe but its easy too
say you don't
hear the phone
feel your fury rise
unbidden, untamed, and cruel
as a branding iron
that threatens to burst from you
try to chant
but you can't

so you lie sometimes
play cool like you're only you
like you aren't inside
an outline he drew for you
if we are he inside us who else are we, too?
you don't you won't but i can't hold it against you
