i said i found my phantom limb but i was lying i said i finally found my place in altar light but theres nothing in my way that wants me trying so ill drown myself and wait for afterlife i thought i found the perfect hymn that i was writing i thought i finally made my space in mortal life but the darkness in the hearts intensifying so ill stick around and wait for solar light to come theres a line that passes through the undercurrent theres a place on the horizon that i like think ill stay there for a minute and survive survive survive and eventually ill find that ill arise i said i found my missing piece despite the trying although i finally found my place in all the lights thought of something in the way was terrifying so i stopped and lied in wait for autumn life had a thought about my present state of being as i walked along the boardwalk late at night when i looked into the water all my fears were neutralized and eventually i knew that i was right i finally found my phantom limb i wasnt lying i knew i finally found the spark in normal life there was something in the way that kept me trying now im standing here and basking in the light now im standing here and basking in the light feeling love and life reacting in the light watch the dark disintegrating in the light when i die ill disappear into the light
Pressure 03:34
i can feel the pressure rising away from home i can see the neighbors calling out to you "dont you worry about a thing" "dont you tell me about a thing" the signs along the hill they flash a deeper red that darkness manifests itself alone in you its pointless to feel your own upswing cause that never solves anything the pressure will push you to the brink you wont have any time to think
descanso 04:09
fire spreads across the coastline as a grey-red tint is splayed across the sky the sun doesnt shine on the grids anymore or maybe i was right and they never did as i watched the endless night encroach i decided i would run away just narrowly outrunning the shadow on the eastbound 10 ambling up the hill overlooking the valley i took it all in for what felt like the longest time all uninterrupted space i was a kid the first time i saw the lights on the horizon the world turned nauseous on its axis but we were all sick of moving in real time i had another monica bellucci dream and i think i know what it meant this time when all the venture capitalists are gone and the opportunists are banished and the rich are eaten will nature reclaim the grid city i came back to that hill recently and it looked like they had built a golf course and some luxury housing and there was a whole foods on the way i was a kid the last time i saw the lights on the horizon
Silencio 08:25
all i want is all i felt come september there was nothing left theres no music theres no band i ran furthest from my helping hands all i want is all i had by late december i had concrete plans did you notice that i had built nothing like this and nothing else all i want is all i knew by the summer id begin anew i saw your versions splayed out on the floor i saw nothing that i could before as the days turned to longer nights darkness unearthed by a blinding light i felt the snarling from behind the door the sun is rising but for how much more? a nightmare descending who are you defending a bloated pus filled fascist mess your silence is indifference all the time is blending it feels the world is ending im drowning in the mess ive made i cannot tell how far ive strayed dont tell me i am done this isnt my swan song all this work and all this pain has killed my sense of right and wrong tell me i am strong please tell me i belong take me to the places that i knew when i was young sail me to the island that i knew when i was young show me all the colors that i knew when i was young (a nightmare descending who are you defending) as time passes i am nursed to health some years later i am someone else staring blankly at the summer sky i remembered how it felt to die all i want is all i was lo que quiero  es un gran silencio un gran silencio un gran silencio un gran silencio un gran silencio un gran silencio un gran silencio un gran silencio un gran silencio un gran silencio un gran silencio un gran silencio un gran silencio un gran silencio



Hyperreality is a collection of songs i worked on for five years, through loss, through deepest depression, through escape, through return. up until recently, there was a full album surrounding these songs. i'm not the same person i was when i started writing these - i realized that in order to close the book on that part of my life i needed to move on and get my babies out there in the world. i can't say that i'm not terrified to put these out, but i feel these are the four songs that can best explain where i've been for so long.

i really hope you enjoy these. i'll see you soon.
