about

Pictures of raisins flash on the screen. How many? What color? Can I count them without looking at the screen? Can I convey my findings telepathically to my brother?

It's not abuse because it's cooler than anything your dad ever did with you.

Have we raised more questions than we've answered?

Listen to my new EP and find out.

Track Name: The Other Room
Picture of raisins
flash on the screen
when my brother and I
think the same random number
dad, can i go play now?

Transmitting images
images of swirls
to my brother's mind
and if he gets it then
I get a guitar
Dad, I'm going to go play now
Dad, I'm going to go play now

It's not abuse because it's cooler
than anything your dad did with you
and he never made me drive the car
for a driveby on the neighbor's dog
and I know that I'm different for this
but I wouldn't have been
born to anything else

No, I'm not giving hints,
he's in the other room
and what would give
this rainbow fractal away, anyway
Dad, I'm going to go play now
Dad, I'm going to go play now

It's not abuse because it's cooler
than anything your dad did with you
and he never made me drive the car
for a driveby on the neighbor's dog
and I know that I'm different for this
but I wouldn't have been
born to anything else

He's in the other room
the other room
Track Name: Dolphin Forest
Out on the edge of town
When they let the sun go down
Masquerade into your mind
Now and then they're so inclined
But once they sense they've got you
Hanging out in Maccu Piccu
There is a light come bubblin up from behind

Way inside the Dolphin Forrest
Simmer Down through waves of sawdust
Floating around through leaves unnoticed
Way inside the Dolphin Forest
Way inside the Dolphin Forest

Nearby the road on out
As they keep us all in doubt
Put it all out of your mind
You must leave it all behind
And once they sense they know you
Understand their little voodoo
There is a light come bubbling up from behind

Way inside the Dolphin Forrest
Simmer Down through waves of sawdust
Floating around through leaves unnoticed
Way inside the Dolphin Forest
Way inside the Dolphin Forest
