American Machinist: one day
American Machinist: when everyone's done of having fun
American Machinist: ready to actually face the world
American Machinist: y'know
American Machinist: they'll hold their breath for five seconds
American Machinist: and that's like the instant i'm sitting at the panel
American Machinist: do i turn the power on or off
American Machinist: all of the telecommunications
American Machinist: the entiret of our society's transcendant existence
American Machinist: and i'll be the one controlling all of that power
American Machinist: so millions of text messages
American Machinist: the thousands of people awake currently, roleplaying in world of warcraft
American Machinist: emails
American Machinist: junk
American Machinist: pornography
American Machinist: pictures with friends
American Machinist: zipping through my power lines
American Machinist: through transformers, converted to single phase ac, running a dc generator, converted back to three phases and zipped back out


released April 30, 2014

Track Name: zom
in the world's set
what did I do
even when I get bit
when you want to spoon
i'm all foul
and I did it all
and I'll brace myself
when I got a gun
he's soothing
with his own car
you're a rooster
and you don't stop
i can blow you
for durations
and I hold still
when your legs shift
** i cant even read here i lost the vocal track
same old thing that don't mean a thing
used to be smart but now I'm dumb
Track Name: Boat God
so now it all comes down to this
a situation of no consequence

so I slog through school
and I get my degree
and I become what the fuck I'm supposed to be
but I can't help but feel so empty
because all this shit is way too easy

they kept me there for twelve straight years
put gel in my hair and buds in my ears
the little spaz, the bastard son
shot up the class with his finger guns

now they walk up to me with this fucked up grin
as if it depends
the place you are in
pray for the government to scoop me up
swallow the pill and empty the cup
maybe i'm scrambling for someone to blame
so i sit in my chair and type out his name

it's tidied up
it's all checked out
no fuckin money in his bank account


guess I survived
guess I may after the next and after the grade
gave it up
took this instead
now i'm sitting in fetal position
and they
try to tell me that it's not the place
not the right time to make my name
and all i've made is a pile of wrappers
and i can't stay away

i'm flooding the boat up
spraying down with the horse
shop-vac my fucking life
and my guts and my bones from the floor

because I'm dead
honest, someday
now I'm fronds in the light of may
thought I could just roll over
and the place would be gone
i let the the fan
roll on under
the sweet breeze of... needs
and the strife's wet
until they crashed me

I ran it up and down
I am the sultan shroud
I took the good kin
I severed what was left
I clear the plates and I
cinched it up inside
but I know it's gone
and I know it's raw
I would stare
and wait for them
to sit up with the food on the plate and I would, uh
force it off like a fucking rat
rodent fuck
rodent fuck
rodent FUCK
