about

I have two EPs coming out in October: "Songs for Celebrities to Listen to" and "I Think I'm Funny But I Totally Am." This demo contains versions tracks that will appear on both.

Or that's lies. I dunno.

P.S. That's lies. This is just one EP. I just wanted to sound more ambitious.

Track Name: You Cannot Hide (Your Hide is Mine)
1 2 3 4

when the day breaks
when the clouds break
that's when i will know
i'll learn when light
bathes you in light
wait through the night
wait til you fight

an iron hand along the hills
raking fingers through the grass

you cannot hide
your hide is mine
you cannot hide
your hide is mine

choking along the countryside
clogging your engine
motor died
speak for the dead
speak for yourself
speak for the dead
speak for yourself

calculatedly
i see your icy stare
math in your eyes
waiting patiently
shadows of my heart
city please
you don't need to
you don't need to know
you don't even anymore

you cannot hide
your hide is mine
you cannot hide
your hide is mine anyway

you fired a gun
you're not the same
and now your soul
i do not know
and now your soul
i do not know
you're the first kill
you cannot hide anyway
Track Name: That's How I Maintain Power
the ice cubes melted and the rum was resting on top of the water
and i just looked down at the pool ignoring your body and charms

'cause that's how i can maintain power

when we looked at the fire
it wasn't to smell the smoke
it's not to wear our clothes
but in our minds we are alone

i wanna go on a journey without ever leaving my head
and you want the same thing but while you sleep in your bed

in my dreams i inherit the earth
i don't know what you want

that's how i maintain power

and you'd just like someone to say
you're so interesting
you're so interesting

in our minds we're alone

if i were rich and you were wish
we'd still make each other cry
it's not okay to use someone but
that's how i maintain power

that's how
that's how i maintain power
that's how i maintain power
that's how i maintain power
that's how i maintain power

when we look at the fire
when we look at the fire
when we look at the fire
that's how i maintain power
Track Name: Song for Mr. T
i am completely serious
he says as he talks to letterman
he won't reveal hulk's hogan's age
as he tries to be the better man

he's grateful for the luck and blessings
that he seems to have had
he's sick of all the hangers on
in chicago he didn't have any friends

he says he's not a star
and that the show could go on without him
it'd be just as good
i bet he doesn't pity the fool
i bet he really doesn't pity the fool

i don't wanna talk about a-team
he says to letterman
i'm gonna take out my anger
he says to break the pretension

he says that it's been hard work
and he's angry with everyone
all these tv interviews
seem to rub him the wrong way

he says he's not a star
says the show could go on without him
it'd be just as good
i bet he doesn't pity the fool
he prob'ly doesn't really pity the fool

he was lonely before he was famous
that's still where he is
he's in new york raging to letterman
and he envies the fool
Track Name: I Used to Know Everything
i used to be certain about everything i knew
and everything i couldn't do
i was actually stupid
but i would just call you stupid
if you said so to me
i used to know
i used to know everything

and if i wanted to write in someone else's style
well i was convinced i could do that perfectly
emily dickinson dashes
alliteration billy blake
for shakespeare i'd write a sonnet
and for john lennon a love song

and i was actually stupid
but i would just call you stupid
if you said so to me
i used to know
i used to know
i used to know everything

i used to know
i used to know everything

it's all so easy when you're 12 and privileged
it's all so easy you're a white male genius
it's all so stupidly easy
so why's the world so stupid
so why's the world so stupid
it's all so friggin' easy

i used to be so cocksure
that if i ran the world
that i would run it better
than it's being run right now
but just because i can see
that some things aren't right
that doesn't mean that i can fix anything
i used to know everything
Track Name: Song for Ayn Rand
i grew up without a good sense of how things should really be
so i read a lot of crazy things and took a lot of words to heart
i believed some very dumb things about ghosts and aliens

i liked to be encouraged to be a meanie though
i really liked ayn rand

i liked to be encouraged to be a meanie though
i really liked ayn rand

because of course i was the best
because of course i was the smartest
that's why i believed in ghosts and that shit
that's why no one liked me
they were just too dumb to see

i believed some really dumb things

i liked to be encouraged to be a meanie though
i really liked ayn rand

i'd like to make it clear though
i still think that her books are still well-written
they're just not good for basing your actions on
they're superhero sex thrillers

her words weren't true but i believed them
her words weren't true but i believed them
she was wrong and so was i
because i believed the words she'd write

i liked to be encouraged to be a meanie though
i really liked ayn rand
i liked to be encouraged to be a meanie though
i read a lot of ayn rand

i read a lot of ayn rand
Track Name: I Don't Want to Lose But Who Would Want to
i don't wanna lose but who would wanna lose
i would like to stay but no one wants me to
i don't want this show to last past its welcome
i would like to surpass all expectations

i don't want the bomb that falls to leave me in the dust
i don't wanna stand guard against the sands of time
i will let this temple fall and to the stars i'll climb
and i will ride this plane up until it stalls
and i won't have a parachute for when it finally falls

and if could just die now i could spread some wings
i could be an angel but that's just one way to fly

i wanna be the bomb that falls on my legacy
and if i tear down it all then let the split with me

i don't wanna lose but who would wanna lose
i would like to stay but no one wants me to
i don't wanna stand guard against the sands of time
i would let this temple fade and stare until i climb

and if i just die now i could spread some wings
i could be an angel but that's just one way to fly

i would be the bomb that falls on my legacy
and if i tear down it all then let the atom split with me
