lyrics

I want to cut the bullshit out from everything
walk 10,000 miles with no hope
or self-praise to sing
and when I return, I’ll sit around a table with my parents and eat
charcoal burning
in our backyard on our patio on 10th street.

there’s a prison walking down the coast

She’s driving tonight with her little baby girl and her gun-slinging wife.

The kingfisher takes flight from it’s twin
she’s everyone now
brings the sweet bay leaves to the calluna
gives life to the ground.

She’ll be a girl.

I've always been searching. Drumming in punk bands. Singing into a cassette mic alone. Trans angst, alienation, going on the road. Synthesis, tape, poetry. Two failed tours, two failed degrees. Reclaiming my voice from the choir, reshaping my voice after punk rock. Years of isolation, hormone therapy, production studies, and hundreds of releases with various projects. ... more
