about

i've been going back and forth on whether to release these demos for a few months. with bandcamp not taking a revenue share for a day, releasing these demos seemed like a good opportunity to get some money into the pockets of friends who are out of work right now.
everybody stay safe and wash your hands!

Track Name: Sweeten (morning voice demo)
i'm standing in your weird empathy
if sound is just changes in air pressure
your words sweeten the air you breathe
your words sweeten the air you breathe

and your words sweeten the air i breathe
your words sweeten the air i breathe

the things i think i hide
come out in my smell
and all the particulars that waft off you
why do i feel i know them so well
why do i feel i know them so well
why do i feel i know them so well

can i let myself get excited
can i let myself want

tell me again tell me again that you like
the way my nervous mouth dances
that one breath could last me the weekend

cause i need it most when the time is mine
cause i need it most when the time is mine

thought i left all that shit back in junior high
cause it's the same in my brain
same snags same misfires
but that first time feeling is here too
it's here when i hold you

and at least i can laugh this time
at least i can laugh this time
at least i can laugh this time
mercilessly please
mercilessly please
mercilessly please
mercilessly please
Track Name: Virus's Birthday (handwashing demo)
i'm a free agent i am a spy
my body and mind are one
and i want to stay alive
so i hide

most wouldn't call it a mind
they call it a mission
but even the free-est thinkers hide
they get it from me

i hide in your throat
i hide in your jokes
i hide in the names of people
who haven't spoke to you for a while

i'm a free agent i am a spy
my body and mind are one
and i want to stay alive
so i hide

most wouldn't call it a mind
they call it a mission
but even the hardest thinkers hide
they get it from me

i hide in your throat
i hide in your jokes
i hide in the names of friends
who haven't spoke to you for a while
Track Name: Parts & Labor (social distance demo)
i asked for a new life
i promised not to waste one second
and i got all i prayed for
but i got it one piece at a time

one piece at a time
one piece at a time

and piece by piece by piece by piece
i'm wearing my bones down
and piece by piece by piece by piece
i'm growing new bones in

i've got a picture in my head
of how it should look when it's done
oh but the assembly's made to change
and all the parts and labor
are getting in my vision's way

and piece by piece by piece by piece
i'm wearing my bones down
and piece by piece by piece by piece
i'm wearing my bones thin
and piece by piece by piece by piece
i'm wearing my bones down
and piece by piece by piece by piece
i'm growing new bones
growing new bones

what's real and how to behave
that's a right i'll take to my grave
and do you really believe i'm selfishly in pain
guess i'll just have to push you away
away - until you don't need me to explain
