  • 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

Your mother
is glaring at me
From the sofa like she wants my blood
I didn’t hear a word you were saying
Cause I was thinking about what I want
Not what I chose
Or what I got
But what I want

I know it’s selfish and wholly unappealing
But it’s getting to be time I left
We tried so hard to be the cover of “Freewheelin’”
That we wound up “Love & Theft”
Got a thumb drive full of my deepest secrets
You can borrow it sometime 24 months into this
For now, however, consider me drifting

No misery and no agony
That’s not what’s eating away at me
It’s the messed up state that we’re in
Or maybe I’m a lost sad son of a bitch with a warped sense of self

Your father drinking a Michelob Lite
He’s got some indication what’s been keeping you up at night
Thinks I’m a loser, so I’ve assumed the role
To make it easier when I storm out, slam my car door, and I go
A muffled recollection of a saner time
Miasma floating through the by-and-the-by
Stay cool but I know I’ve got to get myself home
To stare into my own pupils and the screen of my telephone

If I made a good choice
Why can’t I get an amen?
From the choir of my socialite guardians
Facedown under flannel sheets
Freezing and oh so regrettably me

A lava lamp once bubbled on my nightstand
I bought it at a Goodwill in St. Paul, Minnesota
and you said that it was dumb and it was typical
Which it was
That’s the whole reason why I bought it
So I felt resentful
Intercepted at face value
I was vulnerable and shallow
So I unplugged it and I returned it to the same Goodwill in St. Paul, Minnesota

Alright, already
Point taken
I take myself too seriously to be taking on responsibilities
For another day
Or, for Christ’s sake, another human being
That’s admittedly the problem
I really like to be alone
But I’m destructive to myself and that’s the only thing I know
So come back and this time I’ll try hard not to be an asshole
