  • 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

Yesterday I walked outside
Someone was parked at the light
In a Camaro convertible
So I walked right back inside
Opened my apartment door
Equally vexing as it was before
And I realized
This is my life

One day it’ll be over
I’ll have survived
One hundred years of ‘Tomorrow I’m gonna get it right’

Have you ever looked around
Looked yourself up and looked yourself down
And thought “Shit.”
As someone who passes himself off as effortless
You really are quite effortful and stressed
Skeptical of anything that counteracts
All assumptions that you’ve set like cataracts

Try to relax.

There’s people right here on the earth who care about you
And that makes everything harder because you will it to be so.
There’s millions of different worlds lightyears from this one
While you guard yourself from having fun
What do you think they’re doing there?
Do you even care?

Back when I lived in a midwestern state
Blizzards and blistering cold lent permission
Not to go
You can’t do much when it’s 8 below
The sun’s down early if it comes up at all
It’s understood you’re not alone

City bus lines are crowded and complicated
Laptops glow and everyone’s suntan’s faded
But in California what are you supposed to do
Besides use your own neuroticism as an excuse?
I could be cruising Route 1 or staring at the Golden Gate Bridge
But I’m bleaching all my countertops instead

There’s plenty of cities and towns here
All different and they’re beautiful
As the Redwood Forest, the Gulf Stream waters, and you
Now we commence the convincing
The staggeringly difficult part
That this all has just got to be true
True for me, too
