Passive Passive The passage The visage The old bridge The new bridge Descriptive Divisive Buy an ounce of time and a minute of substance The deadbeat dads and the dutiful husbands Kings of the ether and queens of despair X in the pocket and X in the air Massive Massive The fact is The practice The old live The young live Constricted Conflicted Buy an ounce of time and a minute of substance The deadbeat dads and the dutiful husbands Kings of the ether and queens of despair X in the pocket and X in the air Stability Patience Stability Patience, patience You're killing me With graciousness Compulsivity And I'm faceless Buy an ounce of time and a minute of substance The Melrose rads and the beautiful buzz bands Queens of the either and kings of the scare X in the socket and X in the heir

Are you so delicate That your subjects and predicates Are spoken with Such hesitance As to make them irrelevant? The discordance of a halo The architecture of a rainbow The handshake is not where it fell Assurance is not what we sell The gauzy unreality as your world burns Waiting on a question for the answer Hard to be it, hard to be it, hard to be it Oh, no-oh-oh, you found a bug in the code Hard to see it, hard to feel it, hard to dream it Hard to leave it in that dark room Are you so delicate That your instincts and habits Are cinched like a tourniquet And you barely can operate? The devotion to a mantra The insistence on a contradiction The air kiss is not where it fell Insurance is not what we sell The gauzy unreality as your world burns Waiting on a question for the answer Hard to be it, hard to be it, hard to be it Oh, no-oh-oh, you found a bug in the code Hard to see it, hard to feel it, hard to dream it Hard to leave it in that dark room The gauzy unreality as your world burns Waiting on a question for the answer Hard to be it, hard to be it, hard to be it Oh, no-oh-oh, you found a bug in the code Hard to see it, hard to feel it, hard to dream it Hard to leave it in that dark room

Where is the population? Where is the punctuation? Where is the example to be decent? Where is the subject-verb agreement? So many molecules So many particles So many confirmed kills So many imbeciles And some people just won't give up any thrills Redline that orange and vile crook Put it in your updated stylebook Where is societal enlightenment? Is it in space or is it a hyphenate? So many molecules So many particles So many confirmed kills So many imbeciles And good people's just trying to pay the bills Where are the calm and collected? Where is the comma connective? Where is disdain for atrocity? Where is that missing apostrophe? So many molecules So many particles So many confirmed kills So many imbeciles And some mamas just trying to save their kids

All roads lead to Rome, and Rome is burning It's the end of the empire, the sin and the backfire A dive in the quagmire, tangled in barbed wire Is it the future yet? Is it the future yet? Is it the future yet? All fingers point to me, and I am crumbling It's a forgery of life, a stormy end in sight A magnet to a knife, a dousing of the light Is it the future yet? Are there solutions yet? Is it the future yet?

We will fall on down rabbit holes What we’ll find was lost to us all We are here in this strange new world Old it is So fast And so cold And we never knew what we’re gonna be We never know what we’re gonna be And the weather sure is shaping up to be rather hot Will you talk to me now? Won’t you talk to me now? Would you talk to me now like a human?

Had to walk the dog Had to walk the dog several thousand miles I didn’t know why But I did it anyway And all along our way We found answers in disguise Both panting all the while Yeah, I had to walk the dog

So long, see you tomorrow This is a breaking away from ... (This is a breaking away from ...) Wide berth, wide berth For the passing of this ship Into oblivion What’s the worst thing that could happen? All the world a ghost town A language without a people If you don't want a wheel to spin, don't invent it You’re stardust, I’m sawdust You’re stardust, I’m sawdust What’s the worst thing that could happen? What’s the worst thing that could happen? I will come down from this low I will rise up from this high I will come down from this low I will rise up from this high Good morning; what's for breakfast?

about

Is it the future yet? Yes and no. It's always the present and always the future — maybe always the past, too, depending on what theory on the nature of time one subscribes to. All this is to say, it's weird being a human, and perhaps never weirder than in 2020-2021. That weirdness sometimes plays out as tragic, sometimes joyful, sometimes inscrutable or surreal. We're all just trying to go about our days and keep ourselves functional and something resembling happy. And but so now there's a synth-punk-pop-rock soundtrack for all of that, i.e., hope you enjoy this album.

This is the sixth Autohypnosis release.
