  • 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

If you feel you’re wasted
and you’re wasting away
Well, you might want to consider yourself no one

Found you abandoned
But now I guess that was wrong
It’s such a privilege to misstep when you’re painfully young
I haven’t been in this kind of situation in quite a while
So bear that in mind and go a little easy on me

Slow down
Is what they said
Slow down
You’re letting this all go to your head

What’s your angle?
Better to leave it alone
It’s complicated
Just avoid looking at the screen of my phone and protect your own
I’m always hunting for new material to use against and to bruise my defense
When it can’t be found I create it from scratch
Can you really blame me for that?
Oh, you can?
I take it as an attack
How did we get here?
Is it worth the trip back?

Maybe I better
Slow down
Not everything is a jab
Slow down
And you don’t need to grab at

Everything that you see that may latch on to your need for
Curling like a fetus on your living room floor.
You’re in darkness at the moment
Eventually someone’ll come and drag you out
But for now you’re just a skeleton
I know the drill but feel myself starting to crack
I write fiction and then I read it as fact
Nerve-wracked and overfeeling
Heartbroken and still reeling
I haven’t slept well in a month or so
Maybe I…
Yeah, I should probably just go.

Well,
Calm down
Think you like losing your mind
Calm down
Would you just look at the time

It’s Six months on, and that’s been more than enough.
May have needed it at first, but fucking pick yourself up.
Can’t see much of the world from the vantage point of your window

Know you Worry about the way that the public perceives you,
but trust in the statistic that they don’t even see you,
like a chain smoker talking about needing to quit
You could’ve done most everything if you just took risks


I’m wasted now so I can’t be sure,
but I think I had a good day today
Anonymity, my old friend!
It’s been so long and it’s a pleasure to have your company again

I am no one. Do you read me?
I am no one. Can you comprehend?
For once, I’m barely thinking about anything
For once, I can let the hair grow down the front of my face
I can roam wherever I want to
I can eat, sleep, drink, I can shit however I want to
Cause I am no one
It used to be the most harrowing thought
To be no one; To be all that I have got

Please don’t break me out
This is how I would want to go
Please don’t heed my shout
I’m relaxing the undertow
