about

"Chaotic, hyperactive, multi-colored indie-pop held together through sheer force of will. It’s like some alternate-universe of the Flaming Lips where they didn’t get all paranoid but continued getting weird after Yoshimi."

Track Name: Messmaker
i want everyone to be afraid of the mess i've made
of the mess we've made
Track Name: Squalor Manor
please assure me you've got the taste
to make a beauty out of all my waste
i'm sorry but i've got a lot to do

and i can't always tell
whether you wanna live in squalor
or spring for the hotel

make a nice mess and make it on time
it doesn't really have to be a gold mine
cause that's the only way you're gonna get through

i can't always tell
whether you wanna live in squalor
or spring for the hotel

but it doesn't matter to me
no it doesn't matter to me

i can't always tell
whether you wanna live in squalor
or spring for the hotel
Track Name: Orange + Blue
shine some light on the floral arrangements
spreading hues with your fingers
neon beige in the basement

patience is a virtue
when you're dealing with the zodiac
don't want to leave orange for blue
and i am sure of that

we are rabid animals
being courted blue and orange
finding pleasant patterns
in the chaos of our tatters

smear the tears
draw a picture on your sobbing face
crank your jaw until you can't remember
why the sad in the first place

patience is a virtue
when you're dealing with the zodiac
don't want to leave orange for blue
and i am sure of that

we are rabid animals
being courted blue and orange
finding pleasant patterns
in the chaos of our tatters
Track Name: Perfect Genius
you should bow down to me cause i'm a perfect genius
as far as i can see's the only way to see it
i'm setting out to please like the water fills the ocean
i'll cure any disease cause my brain is the potion

i am a perfect genius
i am a perfect genius

you should kiss the ground i walk cause i'm a perfect person
i've got my heart unlocked cause my head is a burden
i'm waiting for my crown like a rooster for the morn
pavlovically bound to the cry of the hot horn

i am a perfect genius
i am a perfect genius

i am a perfect genius
i am a perfect genius
Track Name: Air I Know
painting ourselves on the same page
was almost fate
tossing shells to trash can
but i’ll be running late

we are adam and eve
we are adam and eve

i knew
i knew i couldn’t tell you why
i knew i couldn’t tell
even in pillow season
we musn’t hate ourselves

you’re way over there
you’re way over there
you may be close but this isn’t thin air

this isn’t the air i know
this isn’t the air i know
this isn’t the air i know
this isn’t the air i know
this isn’t the air i know
this isn’t the air i know
this isn’t the air i know
this isn’t the air i know
this isn’t the air
