about

A collection of odds and ends, things that either never developed into more than what they're presented as here, or became so drastically different that the documentation of their genesis struck me as worth sharing.

Various performers.
Everything recorded and mixed by Chris Lee.
He also took the crappy cover photo with his dumbphone.

Track Name: Concentric
She said I miss it.
I used to kiss it.
Now she burns it off,
And she won't listen.

Told her, "I love her".
She said, "recover".
Now our lives have split right off
From one another.

The money's gone,
But I'll move on.
It's pickin' tunes
and moonshine all night long

But I can't complain
'Cuz no heavy rain
Can drown what's left
Of this young reckless brain

And where are the answers?
I search and curse the Earth and find only cancer
And how did I go nowhere?
I circle first my hurt 'til I just don't care.

I circle first my hurt, and now I've come right back around to you.

Said this is it,
Cross it off the list,
Things from here on out are gonna be different.
But then night fell,
And I could just smell
Those sins slither up
From those dark wells

I play the fool,
Break my own rules,
Tomorrow's sorrows always come too soon.
What can I say?
There's just no way
To feed your needs and please your higher brain.

So I am back up on that ride,
Even if I did not decide.
I just can't wait to arrive,
Air so fair when you're up that high.

To look around upon the ground,
From up above is such a rush.
To not know how you'll make it down
Is somewhat ugly, but you must.

And where are the answers?
I search and curse the Earth and find only cancer.
And how did I go nowhere?
I circle first my hurt 'til I just don't care.

I circle first my hurt, and I've come right back around to you.
Track Name: Supertape - Someone's Laugh
Think I'm done crying now
Been on the floor for an hour now
Think I'll get me a smoke
And make me a joke
to make someone laugh

The bed's too big and I'm gettin' cold
There's no one to stop me when I roll
Down, onto the floor
I wake, wait and listen
For someone's laugh

Someone's laugh
Puts me at ease
Someone's laugh
A cool sweet breeze
A warm bath
Someone's laugh

Jam my thumb with a pickle jar
Using it to start my car
Would've worked if I had
A wire and match
And someone's laugh

Talk to myself as I'm walkin home
I turn to realize I wasn't alone
A stranger's strange face
In the perfect place
For someone's laugh

Someone's laugh
Puts me at ease
Someone's laugh
A cool sweet breeze
A warm bath
Someone's laugh

I think I'm done crying now
Been on the floor for an hour now
I still got me some hope
And lots of jokes
And someone's laugh

I still got me some hope
And lots of jokes
And someone's laugh
