  • 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

Matching paint up to apartment walls
Same shade of beige the landlord recommended
It don’t behave the way, say, blue or green would
But it’s lukewarm. And we’re lukewarm.

Deloused and friendless here in mid-north Cali
Not San Francisco, not quite Silicon Valley
It’s by the airport if you know where that is
Say ‘Oh sure. Okay. I sure do, yeah.’

Mineral King
Stay inside, avoid the dream
This is my Mineral King
Tear it down, return to scene

Isolation to maladaptation
Is it honest, are we good to go?
Startled email. One week paid vacation.
Feeling high till I was feeling low

Mineral King
Stay aligned, forget the dream
This is my Mineral King
Lay me out, return to being

When up is down
You’ve just gotta start wasting your time
That’s the only way to find out
That you’re okay losing daylight
That being coiled up
Bursting at the seams feels fine

When I am working I am somewhere
A stable boy
No heart or mind to bear

When I am focused I can tune into
The weightless, drifting, conditioned, cycled air
When I am home I write to-do lists
Tape post-its to my door

I mounted my TV last night,
Then watched it plummet to the floor
I watched it plummet to the floor

Mineral King
Close it down, ignore the dream
This is my Mineral King
The weird realization there’s no one on your team
