A bunch of tracks recorded in the past two years that I wanted to get out there. The first three were inspired by Corey Ames in that the day he released his EP I wrote and recorded them in my car hours after. "Gardening" is a field recording of my garden. The next 4 tracks are synth/vapor experiments, the other two are metal tracks.

Track Name: Voyeur of Me
recorded in my car 8/3/17

I pull myself
Out of me
Because the rest I don’t need
All to see

I want to look
At myself
Behold my own body
Through mine eyes

I’m a voyeur of me
I sabotage my self
So I can see
All the harm I’m doing
Mainly to myself

i write down
So I can look back and think god what.a dumbass

I am too worried
I’m too scared
To ask my parents something
They’ll probably say no to

i’m a voyeur of me
I get off embarrassing myself
So I can see
All the harm I’m doing
to myself
Track Name: My Pal Satan
recorded in my car 8/3/17

satan is real
they are my friend

And they’re not so bad
Except till your end

If you’ve lived a life
Full of joy and mirth
they’ll make you wish
That you’d never experienced birth

If you’re like me
And are a pal
they won’t be so bad
To you, after all
Track Name: Sid Is My Parakeet
recorded in my car 8/3/17

Sid is my parakeet

Only one leg works
So she can’t stand tall

She’s very affectionate
And chirps in your ear
I’m sorry to say she’ll die within the year
