  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    The artwork for this CD was drawn in pencil on a paper bag by Katie Ferreira. The idea was a little world of musical pollution provided by yours truly... or, if you ask some perverse college kids, a subliminal phallus.

    The plan was that they look like little paper-bag cases. In really real life they are sleekly manufactured by New England CD in glossy slimline cases.

This is one of two songs on Strong Bones + Teeth that has never been re-recorded. We think it along with "The Concept" came out well enough the first time around that they need no revisiting. It also gives this lil' EP some worth beyond its simply being old(er).


Sitting here
Wondering how
You came around
And I fell apart
It’s nothing unusual
My drive fell to neutral
And nothing feels natural
Just breathing seems forced
So I’m singing

The edge of the party
Seems much more inviting
Outside of the laughing
The comfort of hiding
Inside my own body
Inside of your body
Inside everybody
Sometimes I see nothing
So I’m singing

I’m sitting here waiting
For something to happen
Then you come along
And flip my perspective
I know it’s unhealthy
To wonder of dying
I’ve tried to be happy
I'm tired of trying

All of this figuring
And I figured wrong
Defeat and acceptance
I'm lost and it's gone
You’re not like the others
You’re not like the others
You’re not like the others, a lot like the others
A lot like the others, you’re not like the others

Sitting here
Wondering how
You came around
And I fell a part
