Part of a series, possibly to be released in a higher-quality form, which includes "The Violent Sequins", "Sofie (untitled)", "Crystal Kid", and "Rollerskate/Dance Movie". All songs were written using a MicroKorg rip-off synth I traded an old Casio for, Audacity, and FL Studio (particulary Majken's fantastic Chimera [www.majken.se] and an Oberheim DMX drum module).

My main inspirations for these pieces are musicians/groups Television, Joy Division, New Order, The Cure, Bowie, Iggy Pop, Kraftwerk, Talking Heads, Gang of Four, and Lou Reed/The Velvet Underground, and authors William S. Burroughs, Franz Kafka, Eugene Ionesco, Aldous Huxley, and Philip K. Dick. Many thanks to my friend Jesse (http://soundcloud.com/je ssekingsbury) for moral support. His piece "Love Me, Stranger (Pt. 2)" is the icon I've used.

So, now that we've got that out of the way, let me know what you think!

lyrics:

lights and basslines
shake your face out of this dead mind.
songs and lyrics
help this body to feel less sick.
still, i can't do
many of the things i used to...
tainted memory.

porcelain hugs;
i collapse into the bathtub
wretching, aching.
mind abuses body taking
over my life.
purple rings beneath my blue eyes.
people ask me why.

when i sleep, i dream about you,
regardless of if i want to.
i do all i can to stay awake.
for when i awake to find me
not where i dreamed that i would be,
it makes me so blue, i start to shake.

happy, happy.
i am smiling, i am moving
forward, somehow.
something i'd rather not think about;
don't want to scare it away,
i just want to stay here
smiling.

when i sleep, i dream about you,
regardless of if i want to.
i do all i can to stay awake.
for when i awake to find me
not where i dreamed that i would be,
it makes me so blue, i start to shake.

shed my skin, now...
