*made with ACID 5 and CoolEdit2

Well, supposed "care" practitioners tell me I'm bipolar. I "flipped out" one day and was lucky enough to be home to capture it. I was going to teach myself a lesson by recording my "episode" and play it back to sort of, embarrass myself. I cringed at the 8 minutes of... whatever it was... trust me... the clip is disturbing. Anyway, when I felt better, the outburst sounded like it wanted some company so, I made this.

the radio said it was minus three degrees

in jeans and a t-shirt, its hot to me

I want to go home but, its filled with heat

guilt fuels the fire, am I free to leave?

Time, my only option but, its a disease

if Time is all I've got then I cease to be

I need to get out of here If I don't I won't breathe.


I keep on walking but, I feel asleep

my Dreams, still talking as my feet hit street

the rhythm steals blame and feeds my need

consciousness falls and releases me

I can breathe.

I Dream.


Still my favorite among your tracks. I love the sound of pain. A little something you didn't know about me is I am a painter.
One day, I had a nose bleed and a drop fell upon my canvas.
With a little luck, it worked perfectly with the picture.
My blood became the picture.
I began crafting different ways to spray blood from my nose.
A friend commented that my tool kit (paint brushes, blood stencils, etc.) looked like that of an artist, a serial killer or both.
We need somewhere to place our pain. I chose to do so both visually and sonically.
I hear your pain. And not just in this track. This is just one of the more obvious ones.
I listened to this countless times as I wrote this review.

I knew I was right...

when I told my teacher that bipolar people are fucking cool.

Thank you very much! After I heard myself "going nuts", I thought I would share in hopes to help others in the same mimdstate identify with themselves and also entertain others. Thanks for all of your listens!
