  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    This is a copy of "Citrosis" on a 12" vinyl record! Holy smokes!

    The vinyl comes in a single jacket with a 3mm spine; lyrics and liner notes are printed on the innersleeve; the vinyl is transparent orange with red splatter. It should look quite a bit like the digital rendering in the photo, but color of the vinyl and (obviously) splatter pattern will be different.

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    This is a copy of "Citrosis" on compact disc! The CD comes in a 4 panel wallet case (more complex and cool than the one pictured). The CD looks like a damn orange.

lyrics

The last time
I was comfortable
I was stopped at this gas station in South Dakota
Breathing lightly
Breathing open air
One full day left but I didn’t really care
I was all alone
Had a steady goal
I’d found my passion
Just so happens it was waiting in the west
When I remember that
I get a wistful look
It’s half nostalgic
Half disgusted
Because it’s so textbook

Here’s this kid
He’s got big dreams
Nothing will take them away
He doesn’t mind fluorescent lights
Spending entire days inside
and I hate the way that feels
When you don’t realize that you’re naive
Till you rewind the tape and see
How that’s crushed you
That you were never quite as free as it seemed

I’m a pillar
I’ve got it all together
I punch walls sometimes
I’ve got scars on both my hands
I can’t explain that
and if people ask
I say I got them playing football in the 7th grade
Cause I don’t like the impression it gives
Nowadays when you let on that your brain is lived in

Face it, kid
You don’t have much ground to walk on
But that’ll come
Just give it time
Do you still want it?
You know you want it.
It’s what you came for
It’s what you quote-unquote live for
So put up your fists
Don’t let anyone in
They’ll trust you then
They’ll respect you then
Is it genuine?
Who cares?

By the time I finished high school
I was insufferable
By the end of freshman year
Unrecognizable

Caring too much
Oversharing to oblivion
Made sure that folks were cognisant of conditions I was living in
I still do that from time to time, but I catch it now
And justify ‘It had to be, and this is how’
It’s weird and if I dwell it really bums me out

So, in turn, I ignore it which usually winds up OK
A stain, sure, but I don’t let it fuck up my day
The deprecation knocks but it’s belated
The murmurs in my skull remind analysis is overrated

When I was a kid
Did I imagine I’d have this set of predicaments and sins?
Given the choice to begin again
I wouldn’t, here’s why
On the surface I’m a lucky guy
Got a job, I’ve got a home
Got a gym membership
But yet there’s still a couple hours
Out of every 24
I feel like
