Aaron Longoria Very ethereal and dream-like, I feel as if I'm floating somewhere between planes of consciousness. Favorite track: Ishtar Gate (Cell Tower 1216682).

Track Name: Ishtar Gate (Cell Tower 1216682)
If you never make it to the call
I think ive lost all self control
When binding hands begin to fall
I think ive lost all self control
And im scared of what ill do
And im scared of what ill do
Existence is the only answer
Hannahannah looking in
Existence is the only answer
Seven stars where I begin
Track Name: Whoever Lived Here Before We Did
The gravel underneath
The pilgrim in the sun
Sleeping river indigestion if they dont know im one
Call it medicine medicine
I am sleeping far away and on the ground
Call it medicine medicine
Lost infirmary and civil war when found
Broken spade
Without an institution is waiting
In the shade
Resting piece of metal creating
Making icicles and chronicles and denticles
Somehow never spent oxygenating
Call me crystalline crystalline
I am sorry if I never had the heart for waiting
The wicker in the light
Reflecting on the glass
And I dont think your see through paper is ever going to last
And I think why did I talk over you with your knife hand
And I think why did I mention the mouse on the afghan
And I think why did I mention the whole in the roof
And I think why did I think that you knew that you were too
Track Name: My Brother's Bigfoot Sighting
Black bear
Or cardinal misdirection
Ive sworn to you your protection
You dont have to be scared
Oldest lie
Or Navajo with a business tie
Or sacred moon with a lazy eye
Call me a coward
And I
Jump to conclusions like I
Made out of money like I
Tearing the mask from my face
And I
Jump to conclusions like I
Needing the money like I
Watching the whole human race
Nothing I do can ever be part of it
Waters edge and darkened gold
Nothing I do can ever be part of it
Candle reflected I do what im told
Through the mesh cover I act like I started it
There on the screen door the mountain so bold
And there on the lake you act like Im watching it
Im watching you watch it the leather so old
And I
Jump to conclusions like I
Made out of money like I
Tearing the mask from my face
And I
Jump to conclusions like I
Needing the money like I
Watching the whole human race

Southern agassiz
Bending neck I should have stayed
Southern agassiz
Empty tent and I’m afraid
Southern agassiz
Should I have to turn and run
Southern agassiz
Only brother lonely one
Track Name: Children's Almanac
Melting into time
Boasting book of mine
Sunny palmdale north new jersey
Somewhere in my mind
Melting into time
Boasting book of mine
Sunny palmdale north new jersey
Somewhere in my mind
Track Name: Little Truck
And the birds were there
And the sea was there
And the sky was there
And the ground was there
And it smelled like gasoline
And it smelled like dirty water
And it smelled like gasoline
And it smelled just like my father
And it smelled like gasoline
And it smelled like dirty rope
And it smelled like gasoline
And it smelled like filthy hope
And it smelled like gasoline
And i smelled it on my hands
And it smelled like gasoline
And I felt too drunk to stand
[We all remember what its like]
[As a child we all abused and hurt small animals]
[And we all felt bad]
[I dont know if i felt bad]
[I dont remember if i felt bad]
[And i wanna feel bad now]
[But i cant go back and feel bad then]
[And if i cant go back and feel bad then what it doesnt really count]
[It doesnt really count at all]
(plastic) (cold air) i dont know if i ever will
(plastic) (cold air) I dont know if I ever can
(Plastic) (cold air) i dont know if i ever will
(Plastic) (cold air) i dont know if ill ever stand
(Plastic) (cold air) i dont know if i ever will
(Plastic) (cold air) i dont know if its not my fault
(Plastic) (cold air) i dont know if i should be held
Responsible for that (coldest night of my life)
(forever)
Track Name: Eurytion, Stuck Through the Side (Tater Tots)
Calydon, calydon, calydon
And how it made me feel
Touch upon, touch upon, touch upon,
The serpent on my heel
And I dont know if I can say that what I did was right
And I dont know if what I saw is truth or second sight
I saw you making popcorn
I saw you on the couch
I saw you with your tongue hanging out
I saw you at the table
I saw you on my phone
I saw you eating tater tots alone
Air conditioning
And stale renditioning
Apologizing sleeping in the stall
False equivalences
Rare impermanences
What if you dont think of me at all
Middle way, middle way, middle way,
And fuck if I don’t know
Not today, not today, not today
Eight pinecones in the snow
Javelin with sudden stupor caught captive on my head (part of me)
Redemption silent continental passage from my bed (part of me)
And what if Atlanta was right and the sequence was only my fault
And what if the answer so certain owned only by god
Come calling protection make of an antler try not to poke your own eyes out
Come calling protection sealed with a wink and a nod
Come calling protection drunken forgiveness heard near a month from my birthday
Come calling protection faith that you know what i did
Come calling protection taught without breaking somebody yells something youd say
Come calling protection instead i was gone and I hid
I saw you at the bus stop
I saw you at the store
I cant recognize your face anymore
I saw you at the table
I saw you on my phone
I saw you eating tater tots alone
Track Name: Diving Bell
Put me with you in the diving bell and we’ll die like the ocean died (And we go, and we go, floating we go)
Track Name: Red America
And a wall was built
Several nations tall
And the seas were filled
With isopropyl alcohol
And my eyes were warm
On the brightest sun
Short in service here
Or I felt like one
When the gavel fell
I was here in red america
Holding up my arms I swear to you
When the gavel fell
I felt criminal hypoxia
Pouring out my stomach onto you
And force some kind of drug in my mouth
So I can stop talking
And weld my legs to the chapterhouse
To keep me from walking
And dreading dreading dreading all
I was a packhorse for you
And breathing breathing breathing I
I stayed up all night to get through
When the gavel fell
I was here in red america
Holding up my arms I swear to you
When the gavel fell
I felt criminal hypoxia
Pouring out my stomach onto you

Still life in my chest
Tongue in my mouth
Able to move
Carry it out
Climbing the tree
The weight of my shoes
Kicked from my feet
Collected by you
Now covered in blood
How should i feel
I made my mark
I made my deal
Covered in paint
Covered in light
I was not bored here
Track Name: 2 Organs
Like I didn’t see the word of God
Like I didn’t know that I was doomed
And I saw only
Majesty
Sacrilege
I was not made up for this and im not
Majesty
Sacrilege
I was not destined for thought on my own
Destined for thought on my own
On my own
And still I mean nothing to you if im nothing to me and im still not a voice if im not
And Im still not a voice if you’re with me
And Im still not a voice if youre with me
And Im still not a voice if youre with me
(I will not go gently)
Track Name: If I Were Any Lonelier I Would Be The Earth (Or the Chain That Holds It In Place)
If I were any younger I’d be less paranoid
If I were any smarter I’d make more sense
If I were any better I’d be an astronaut
If I were any richer I’d pay the rent
If I were any lonelier
I’d say it in my sleep
If I were any lonelier
So to speak
If I were any lonelier
I’d be your only son
If I were any lonelier
I’d feel like one
I can’t go outside
(why would I go anywhere) (holy holy) (burn it up without anyone’s permission) (keep it to yourself i dont think that i could ever know) (did I require know it I don’t think about everything I can’t do)

Summer majestic with eyes open wide
(keep it to yourself everyone wants you to) (did I require or know it I don’t know) (empty empty) (tear it down with omission) (why would I ever pretend to care?)

I can’t feel my neck
(following footsteps in the aftershock) (holy holy) (ghost of an empty thought) (why should I try to run?) (every time something happens to me)

Distance recovered I am alive here I never meant any disrespect
(following have to walk) (empty empty) (ghost of an empty I can’t talk) (everytime something happens to me) (why should I try to run?)

And in the stars and in the stars
(and in the stars) (holy empty) (and in the stars and in the universe and empty chain) (universal internal truth to me) (holy holy holy)

And in the stars and in the sun
(in the orbit around my sun) (in the orbit to the stars and into star) (star and universe and empty chain) (empty empty)

And in the orbit around the universe
(of the universe) (our universe) (padlock, molten core) (holy holy) (cold space cold light) (holy holy empty)

And in the star I tried to run
(and in the star I tried to run) (cold light cold touching touching me) (holy holy empty) (padlock something more, something more) (empty empty empty) (orbit orbit orbit)

If I were any lonelier
I’d say it in my sleep
If I were any lonelier so to speak
If I were any lonelier
I’d be your only son
If I were any lonelier
I’d feel like one
If
Track Name: Head
Over and over my head
The same five words keep coming up
Keep coming up again
Like we’ll all die false pesticide
And youre not making any sense at all
Take off
Your shirt
Make me uncomfortable
And I know it hurts bandage on your arm
Take off
Your shoes
Make me feel anything
But i know it feels
Better to do no harm
Watch everybody go GO
Old santango (sideways sideways side)
Auld lang syne (ocean made of plastic and garbage)
Old st. Crispin (clouds are made of liquified killing)
Less of mine (and in the sky I saw a thousand a thousand of them are)
Old vibration (and in the sky and in the sky I never)
Old sick friend (whats that I didnt see the if air would turn to poison)
Incantation (I could not I didn’t see if I ever had to go)
In the end (I didn’t want to go)
And if your spirit says that I dont have whatever I should need to say
And If your parents tell me Im a coward i can fight them its okay
And if your rabbit bites me on the hand and makes me bleed then ill be fine
And if the sun consumes us in its flames and breathing fire we’re alive
Everything gets quiet
Everything makes sense
And if there is a soldier take me to him
God I am a mess
And it goes over and over my head
The same five words keep coming up keep coming up again
Dissatisfied unspecified
Youre not making any sense
At all
Take off
Your shirt
Make me uncomfortable
And I know you cant
Hear me on the ground
Take off
Your shoes
I couldnt feel anything but
I know
I feel better when youre around
Track Name: Big Turkey
(are we ready for it)
Track Name: Height of Land
Height of land
I can’t stand the thought of leaving
I am glad
That I had something worth seeing
Empty voice
Call my name three times
Call me captain of the day
Say Im crushed
Beneath my own words
Say I have to go away
I saw houses standing sideways
Winter jackets wearing thin
If I say I’ll keep your secret
Will you tell me where you hid
Making up a word for locking up myself and set myself on fire
Wrapping snakes around me and telling people they should learn to fear me
Sitting under blankets with the smoke making my eyes feel clear and tired
Finally finding out after a long time nobody wanted to be near me
Height of Land
I am there again
Height of Land I feel your sky
Height of Land
I want to feel afraid again
Height of Land before I die
Height of Land (Height of Land I see)
Are you there with me (through glass and wine unguarded)
Height of Land leave me alone (smoke relieved with)
Height of Land (legs that run from me)
Say a prayer for me (at any costs)
Height of land my only home (I let them go)
