      name your price



It's free! Just enter $0 after you click 'Buy Now.' Some obviously insane people have mentioned they'd like to pay so I included the option. I make it a policy to placate insane people because as an artist of impeccable integrity they're the only thing I fear more than money. If you don't want to pay, trust me, you're completely normal. Probably.

I'm genuinely sorry that Bandcamp changes the text from 'Free Download' to 'Buy Now' even when the minimum price is $0, but I think you're smart enough to see through their transparent attempt to guilt trip you into giving them 15% of anything. Probably.

Recorded by Mystery Pills at the Panic Room in Rapid City, SD


All our golden youth -
oh, should've faded long before it faded
and when I woke up holding you
you could’ve waited…

the past is a burial ground, you’ll never feel it pull you down
no, you couldn’t change it, don't you know it's dangerous?
but if your ass stays static now
you’ll have to deal with some gnawing doubt
sooner or later

if you count your stars tonight
there's a chance they'll all collide
have you felt so numb so long
that you can’t tell wrong from wrong?

first of all I was just old enough to know
how to lose it all when I thought it was under control
I was concerned that comfort was so uncomfortable
'til the world dissolved into almost nothing at all

I deserve to know what you thought the armor was for
were you holding on for a post-devotional war?
you know the more you live for the worse it is for your soul
is it worth it just to be lonesome once and for all?

don't do that - I told you I laugh at danger

Benjamin Lemay played the violin you hear on this track. Full disclosure: I feel a little guilty for sampling some of his parts and chopping them up because he's very talented and did a great job playing everything. You should check out his most recent work to hear him in a more natural context:
