about

All 9 songs are new, written for the album with the melodies spilling into one another.
The album is about the absence of God not being neutral but negative, and the devil of practical hum-drum curses who I have named Cthuwho?. Cthuwho? is the invisible force behind all lawsuits, stolen PIN codes, bedbug infestations, Comcast take-over bids, overdue rent complications and so much more. Cthuwho is part of the negative opposition that reminds me the universe isn't neutral.
The album is also about James Bond.
I really had a lot to say about James Bond.
There are all kinds of references to the various media that dominated my summer so feel free to dig around the lyrics and find whatever meanings you can.
I'd wanted to sell the album for 4 bucks, the price of the comic book, so that 1 purchase of my album = my 1 purchase of a comic book. But for legal reasons I don't think I can put the whole thing up for sale. However, if you're feeling generous feel free to buy one of the singles, any finances sent my way may or may not be spent on comic books.
I can't say how excited I am to share this with you, I'd love to hear any responses, questions etc you may have. Otherwise enjoy.

Track Name: Swimsuits
coming in fast
hold hands
if you need laughs
slow dance
if you need laughs
make a face
make music
pick a card
then use it
pick a card
the six of clubs
recall
standing in for
Thunderball
recall
it's much too cold
cut class
you all joke dads
you all joke

there are no clean clothes
wear swimsuits
Destro
and Cthulhu
Cthuwho?

Death was naked
before God
forbid
Death was
serious
oh hardly
coaches pitch
can't harm me
serious

coming in slow
what's next?
no own goals
protect
what's next

don't let the dark hurt
get darker
that's when it all goes on and on and on and on
Track Name: La Giudecca
what phish did you catch
in your internet?
hide your ip address
and learn to listen
but you eat your cherry crumble
and you feel sick watching Wicked City

always up for a tryst
with a certain succubus
forgot to call Idriss
but he'll forgive me
though you're tired you shall not slumber
you watch Goldeneye
that synth score is such a pity

dum ditty dum dum ditty dum ditty dum ditty
and you can keep that chorus going

if you call me

I am my own man
so I've got my own back for goodness sake
I am not my own man
I am God's
or the Law's

but can't we talk about it
the thread said the legal fees follow me
oh no
how could you have doubted
the earth hurts in bigger ways as you age
oh no

which Wood sister is your favourite?
guess which one's mine
this town cannot hold Veronica
and neither can I

you don't do drugs
you just follow those who do
and all of us are pinning our hopes on you
that you won't lose yourself

I promise that Andrews is wasting your time
you can have Lana
cause Natalie is mine

am I free at last?
I'm scared the last laugh
will belong to Comcast
with everything else
you can have my private number
if you end the line with something that rhymes with
dum ditty dum dum ditty dum ditty dum ditty
and you can keep that chorus going
Track Name: Slumber Incorporated
Catherine, Catherine
I went through your walkthrough again
hoping it would all make sense
when I wake up
a little sleep
a lot of time
Emily watched me lose my mind
your mechanics are well designed so I can't give up
you tell me love is over
over and over

Catherine

Catherine I just had lunch
with a birthday wish and a smiling bunch
but even they were not enough to keep me from you
I don't know what more to say
about your copious cutscene anime
but I can't look away
so I climb the cube
you tell me love is over
over and over

Catherine

there's a God and he knows
all of your bank details
your pin numbers
and he buys on sale
products online
made in China
and you lose yourself to him
Track Name: Fiona Volpe Cannot Be Caged
careful
I'll take you somewhere
I'll dance til I'm dead
there are no seatbelts
or warning bells
when you're caged in a bed

but the mustang muscle groaned
the clay pigeon picker honed
you were deadly to get alone

but a Vulcan bomber
would look great on ya

careful
I'll take you somewhere
I'll dance til I'm dead
there are no seatbelts
or warning bells
when you're caged in a bed

but the mustang muscle groaned
the clay pigeon picker honed
you were deadly to get alone

now I'm a driven man
Track Name: Tiffany Case
and hold her like the lover you say you are
ducking for cover behind the car
what started as sport went way too far
leaving nothing but heavy love

you make her more than a girl you laid
whispers of weddings and a promise made
you might have given the money back but you still got paid
and I cannot pick up this heavy love

you might have given us bread but we demand cake
your attempts at substance leaving us betrayed
always judge a man by his box office take
we all cried "cut" on this heavy love

we drive by you
we point and shoot
to be replaced
by Tiffany Case
COWARD
we drive by you
we point and shoot
to fill your space
with Tiffany Case
COWARD
Track Name: Slow Like Jedi
it's so sad
that I'm slow like jetlag
to accomodate anything
what throwback
to dreams done and had
got me waking up struggling

close the window

you know I'd head back
if not for my dad
you don't be double yoked to anything
and do you smoke grass?
am I under attack?
should I watch what I eat?

close the window

you know it's so sad
that I'm slow like jetlag
at least it's something
it's so sad
to be slow like jetlag
at least it's something
Track Name: Six Disasters
it's hard to see straight in the summertime
I mistook that snake for a swinging vine
it's the devil's deal to waste your time
I'm calling you

you try to pray to no avail
cause there are no gods in Riverdale
just carrot tops and ponytails
I'm calling you

I'll put my hope in the Son of Man
cause I never approved of the B plan
where he takes away his gilded hand
I'm calling you

I don't ever wanna hurt again
so I love with the length of the weekend
don't stir me cause I'm shaken
I'm calling you

oh the joy of those corrected
oh the fear and what it means
lo he strikes like six disasters
oh I speak with lips unclean

all God's people
say yea yea yea
we fear you yea
yea yea yea
