song 112 is a new infinity crush song called ‘games’. i gave myself an hour to write a love song and it turned out better than i thought it would and i think giving yourself time constraints and limitations can be a cool source of inspiration.
i won’t cheat this time when i close my eyes and count to ten
it’s you i’ll find so you can hurt me again that way i like
i walk to the store and see you in everything i pass
i want you more, i want you to hell and back
be my stars and guide me
hide and seek and find me
love me til i ache
i fell asleep standing, had a tiny dream that you were in
you said you were sorry
i said “you are the dirt beneath my skin.
i love you til i’m blind, in the shower, in the grass, in the night, in the sound of snow,
i love you all the time”
Say Hi to Your Mom | Let’s Talk About Spaceships
this is a song i’d prefer to never name and never to sing again. i wrote this song about a year ago after someone who meant the world to me took her own life. i never had the courage to ever sing this in front of anyone and its quietly been festering in the back of my head since then. with the anniversary soon, i’m convincing myself that sharing my pain will ease it. i recorded this today on the hill where we used to share cigarettes and laugh about people being too caught up in their own sad lives.
The Glow Pt. 2-The Microphones
i’m still flesh
i hold on to life with feelings
i’m not dead
there’s no end
my face is red
my blood flows harshly
my heart beats loudly
my chest still draws breath
i hold it
ooh oh oh
there’s no end
Do you think the landlord’s pissed? We left a car parked on the lawn again. He’s looking. The porch is still and empty. We wrote our friends names on the walls inside. They’re laughing. We know that this isn’t home for long. The posters in your bedroom speak softly. They tell stories. So while the weather’s getting worse we take shelter in these walls again and tell stories. So where did you live and what did you learn there? We watch the fallen leaves turn to frozen trees, it’s been another year. Where do the echoes from the echoes go? Where does the water flow when it leaves our homes. I’ve been searching for this, something that I can run away with. It’s a life changing decision. Should I leave or try to beat this? (I know it gets harder everyday. But the dawn will fade and our skin will flake away.) Where do the echoes from the echoes go? Where does the water flow once it leaves our homes. Live wires are like this. They hit the streets and form a beacon. It’s a danger we’ve been warned, but we still stretch and try to reach them. Watching our planet grow on screens I spoke into a window sill and still forgot everything and it spoke back. A thousand frozen trees but still there’s something burning. (I will stare while you are growing. Come with me to empty places.) They are filled with everything. Where do the pieces of our dreams recede? Into eyes shut that are opening. I never have ever decided what to think of all the years I spent in Connecticut. (Whenever, if ever I get my life together I’ll apologize for all the things I should have said.) So beat on the bass drum, make all the spiders run. We threw rocks at the house and it looked back. (and on another day lost to the setting sun I stare at the ceiling and it looks back.)
The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die - Ultimate Steve“Our senses wear out so strike us with lightning. Let it tear us apart and shake our being. ‘Cause everything I see and all that I touch isn’t worth believing. Eventually, the world’s gonna end. We should stop our grieving. Let it destroy me. Let it end all suffering. The world will destroy me. Our voices will flood rivers and valleys. The world will destroy me. I am the mountains crumbling.”This is my favorite song on our new record.
