I'll try to make this perfectly clear 
I'm so transparent I disapear 
these words I lyrically defecate 
upon songs I boldly claim to create 
clint steps in to establish the beat 
4/4 hip hop and you don't stop 
this unique approach to start an EP 
intended to shock, create a mystique 
a cheap strategy, a marketing scheme 
building awareness for the next LP 
they've got a good fan base 
they've got integrity 
they've got a DC sound 
Shudder to Think, Fugazi 
and Chapel Hill Around The Early 90's 
this is the latest from saddle creek 

some melodies are like disease 
they can inflame your misery 
they will infect your memory 
they haunt me 
some melodies are like disease 
they can inflame your misery 
they will infect your memory 
they haunt me 

I write these words with my motherly intuition 
I shape these sounds into harmonic aparitions 
but I can see can see through these haunting things 
my moldy dreams are debased by the same hands that shaped them 

I'll try to make this perfectly clear 
I'm so reflexive i am a mirror 
these words I'm driving into the ground 
the same words I scream out over the crowd 

I'm just an airwave rolling around 
I storm and crash without a sound 
There's all these islands out at sea 
I can't reach 

I'm just an airplane diving down 
I storm and crash without a sound 
engines exploding silently out at sea 
where waves caress unstable egos 
where melody is completely swallowed 
where songwriters chain their songs 
to their ankles and 
sink to the beat 
'til it stops and 
bursts under pressure 
let it 
burst and bloom 
hit song 
let it burst and bloom
