about

-- Listening instructions --

Gather the following items:

1. Jazz Cigarette rolled with the flower of the sativa (preferably Sour Diesel) and Randy's brand rolling papers
2. Lighter
3. A single tea candle
4. Headphones
5. A bowl of fruit (a dealer's choice of whatever is local/in season)
6. This E.P. (cassette is ideal, but digital is acceptable)

In a darkened room, use the LIGHTER to light the TEA CANDLE. Once your eyes have adjusted use the TEA CANDLE to fire up that JAZZ CIGARETTE. Toke until you've achieved the desired effect. Cue up the E.P. and with the HEADPHONES to make sure the volume is as loud as you can comfortably withstand. Once you've made whatever volume adjustments are needed eat approximately half of the BOWL OF FRUIT. Make sure to take the time to savor and really appreciate and understand the effort it took for that FRUIT to get to you. With each bite, APPRECIATE and UNDERSTAND the series of events that had to take place in order for you to be consuming that FRUIT. Then, start the E.P. and stare into the flame of the TEA CANDLE and DO NOT BREAK EYE CONTACT FOR THE ENTIRETY OF THE E.P.! When the E.P. is finished, remove the HEADPHONES and blow out the TEA CANDLE. In the dark and silent room eat the rest of the FRUIT. Once you've finished consuming the FRUIT utter the following phrases out loud: I am the flower, I am the fire, I am the fruit. Repeat as necessary.

Track Name: A Debt That Can Only Be Paid With Regret
When I was a kid you stood over me, while I was asleep.
Your hands on my skin/your curse upon me, while I was asleep.
The red in Mom's eyes/the tears on her cheeks, the secrets I keep.
When I was a kid you took it from me, and I'm still asleep.

I bear the weight of the family shame.
It's funny how I'm the one you blame.
I bear the weight of the family shame.

The void in your eyes/the welts on my cheeks, the secrets I keep.

When I was a kid you snuffed what was lit, while I was asleep.
I eat like a pig just to swallow your shit, and I'm still asleep.

I bear the weight of the family shame.
After twenty years it still hurts the same.
I am the face of the family shame.
It's funny how I'm the one you blame.

While you were touching me I was having a dream of a family love that was pure and deep.
Track Name: Amazon Suicide Net
Oh, where to go tonight: Rhein Haus or somewhere "divey"?
Should we leave The Hill? Oh god, no way!
The Unicorn is alright, but lately it's been weekend douchey.
We could use our phones to get Postmates.
The Hill has changed so much by way of San Francisco.
But, should we leave The Hill? No way!!!

Cause it's hard to beat this convenience disease,
And now I'm all green of cats who live more lean than me,
I'm atrophied and fattened from my means,
It's the purrfect scene of urban complacency.

I am culpable, but so damn comfortable.

Select the event cause I'm so "interested".
At your next, upcoming show... I'm there!
...Unless it's too late, too much, or up in Fremont.
It's our charge to support the scene.
Been slamming beers all day and now I'm all day drunk sleepy.
I thought I'd leave The Hill, oh god, no way!

It's killing me, this tongue and cheek disease.
And now it's obscene to say words genuinely.
Truth is atrophied and weakened by bare sleeves.
It's the purrfect scene of modern complacency.

I am culpable, but so damn comfortable.

6pm on Wednesday.
Just got back from Trader Joe's.
Cheaper than the Co-op.
Something everybody knows.
She's got something cooking.
I'm fixing drinks and packing bowls
Though about going out.
Be we don't wanna change our sweats!

Gurrl, you know it's good to see you in those sweatpants!
Choppin' up the veggies and the tofu.
Bootin' up the Hulu and the Netflix.
You know we're gonna cuddle till we pass out!

After having din din.
She asks if I want something sweet.
She runs into the kitchen.
I put the dishes in the sink.
She's got something baking.
I fixing drinks and packing weed.
Better than going out.
Cause she just made my favorite cookie recipe.

Gurrl, you know it's good to see you in those sweatpants!
Choppin' up the veggies and the tofu
Bootin' up the Hulu and the Netflix.
You know we're gonna cuddle till we pass out!
