about

My synopsis of the EP, when asked by NY Times reporter, Daniel Radcliffe:

"When I was a kid I used to go out and look for bugs. Now I'm a little older and I look for other stuff & it's confusing."

Track Name: Faith in Silence (feat. Miranda Inzunza)
your skin, gold unknown, bottle of silver might change that baby
can't touch, but you wanna hold my gaze like a vice-grip

It's sinful, I'm told: thinking about you more than occasionally,
wanting more than what the angels gave me, praising your lips

you're being tactical, who wouldn't want to be?
you make me feel so dull, with no apology (oh no no)

got faith in silence,
stones I'm calling diamonds
this worship is just making me feel worthless

they say real answers lie way up above
how easy to mix up a god and some cosmic fuzz
my word, how you can fly once you got me falling in love
how easy to mix up what you do with what he does

you're being tactical, caus you gotta be
you make me feel so dull, I know that's on me too

got faith in silence,
stones I'm calling diamonds
this worship is just making me feel worthless
just making me...

need faith in silence
stones I'm calling diamonds
this worship is just making me feel worthless
just making me feel
Track Name: Praying Mantis
find the right conversation, you'll vanish
slip out of reach like insects through fingertips
learn how to be like the praying mantis
ruler of undergrowth, living inside his bliss

ooh, be like the silent king mantis
be like the mantis!

whoa, whoa, know you wanna get me alone
keep on praying, keep on praying, keep praying, keep on praying
whoa whoa, know you want my claws on your bones
keep on praying, keep on praying, keep on praying, keep on praying

find the right satisfaction and snatch it
all those sweet dreams left crawling inside of you
keep watch for pesticides, friends, and famine
let that hive buzz, and fly from beneath the shoes

whoa, whoa, know you wanna get me alone
keep on praying, keep on praying, keep praying, keep on praying
whoa whoa, know you want my claws on your bones
keep on praying, keep on praying, keep on praying, keep on praying

when did I become uncool?
lost the right to make you smile
now my words forbidden to you
scrambled like encrypted files

whoa, whoa, know you wanna get me alone
keep on praying, keep on praying, keep praying, keep on praying
whoa whoa, know you want my claws on your bones
keep on praying, keep on praying, keep on praying, keep on praying
Track Name: The Sting
I've only loved once. that's terrifying:
hazy specter of heartbreak hovers over bedroom leisure
hey, mister. you got it real good

I was a big dunce, I missed a lion's
share of shots to make the stay, high school lust not lasting pleasure
I wouldn't go back, even if I could

you've never, never fallen out
oh God, oh God what a frightening thing
been told, been told by the downward route
how will, how will you react to the sting

the sting, whoa (x2)

mind the cold front, how to defy it?
such cruel words I hear these days, between those who once treasured
one another, I've never understood
Track Name: Anaphylaxis
only one way to find out
Track Name: Paper Promises (feat. Marlon Craft)
blistered feet, grab a seat like a good boy
memorize every line on the map of Troy
when you walk, sunny day, all dressed in black
won't you be so happy that you know that?

paper promises this one's a gem
if only that meant something to them
but all they say is:

go head, sign the dotted line
say goodbye to this little shrine
nice job with the guidelines
no one cares about guidelines

what's that? you wanna learn to shine?
shit, I don't know, just look online
can we maybe do this another time?
kid I'm sure you'll be just fine

[Marlon Craft verse]

paper promises this one's a gem
(did it teach me a thing? I don't know, hey)
if only that meant something to them
(didn't teach me to sing, I learned my own way)

paper promises this one's a gem
nice job with the guidelines no one cares about guidelines
if only that meant something to them
can we maybe do this another time? kid I'm sure you'll be just fine
Track Name: Adversary
oh what a nice guy, treading the sidewalk
I bet behind his bright eyes, he's a sly fox
but I don't mean like 'sexy,' just always ready
a sweet talkin brute whose dimples are deadly

he thinks he's so cool caus he can flip through
page after page of a thesaurus
they say he's too wordy to be worthy
fine motherfuckers, here's a five word chorus

I am my own adversary

threatening, then settling
developing, then leveling
bettering, then meddling
deafening, then mumbling
juggling, and fumbling
functioning, and crumbling
snuggling, plummeting,
adrenaline

skyrockets when I least need it
simmers when I need to be bold

won't let myself get higher, all I wanna do is get higher...
Track Name: Under the Rocks
venture out!
what will he find today?
these kids all dreaming about superheroes
like one morning they'll wake up that way

he brings a net
and pulls on dirty shoes
the smell of wet soil in a patch of shade
now he knows what he has to do

over to the pond with his sister to
uncover the wriggling lifeforms
under the rocks, under the rocks...

a little flash! a little bright flash of orange
under the rocks

it was easy, waiting by the water
the grail lies hidden like a serpent's secret now
these new kind of critters can sure be a bother (sure be a bother, bother)

over to the pond with his sister to
uncover the wriggling lifeforms
under the rocks, under the rocks...

a little flash! a little bright flash of orange
under the rocks
