PARTICLE KID

 

FOREVER FRIEND

I will be young
Only for so long
And I will be afraid
Forever if I don’t jump now
Into your sea
Only in my dreams
Will I be free again
Forever is not the end
Forever is my best friend
Right now

Am I a soul
Or only skin and bones?
Where does the line begin
Between the spirit and the host?
Cause I feel I’m giving up the ghost
Right now

I don’t need nothing
I just need to feel at home again
I don’t need nothing from you
I don’t need nothing
I just need to be alone again
I don’t need no one
i’d just like to know
Where I stand in the scheme of things
O! How it all goes down behind the scenes
And to know
No that won’t make it feel any less real to me
No I think
It would only add to your authenticity

I don’t need no one
Shelter, bread, water and oxygen
I don’t need no one like you
I don’t need nothing
I just need to feel at home again
I don’t need no one
i’d just like to know
Where I stand in the scheme of things
O! How it all goes down behind the scenes
And to know
No that won’t make it feel any less real to me
No I think
It would only add to your intensity
Yea I think
It would only add to your beauty
And I think
And I think
And I think
And I sink
And I sink
And I sink
And I sink
And I sing
And I sing
And I sing

SLIPS AWAY

I always think of what I wanted to say
After it’s too late
In my own mind I rewrite the lines
But the moment slips away

Slips away
Away
Away
Away

I never know just what you’re thinking about
Without a doubt
I wanna dive right in and figure you out
But the moment slips away

Slips away
Away
Away
Away

I was trying hard to read your mind
Hard words to find
Feel like I’m jumping off a sinking ship
But the ocean slips away

Slips away
Away
Away

THE OCEAN

I’m in love
I’m in love
I’m in love with the ocean
I’m in love
I’m in love
I’m in love with the ocean
Does the ocean love me back?

I’m in love
I’m in love
I’m in love with the ocean
I’m in love
I’m in love
I’m in love with the ocean
Does the ocean understand?

She’s way out of my league I know
I don’t believe she could care at all
She’s so special and I’m weak and small
But I know in time I’ll make her mine

I’m in love
I’m in love
I’m in love with the ocean
Does the ocean know my name? 

How could she know me?
Could she feel the same?
We are so strange the ways we change
So wild, so free
She’s just like me
And I know in time I’ll make her see

I’m in love
I’m in love
I’m in love with the ocean
The ocean
The ocean’s all I need...

DREAMER

I don’t wanna be a dreamer
I wanna be the dream
I got a vulture on my shoulder
Someday I’ll know what that means
The only thing that I believe
Is what is happening to me

It takes a calm eye
Takes a long time to see
It takes a strong mind
Is there a wrong time to dream?

The way we’re headed
The end is getting hard to find
And have you noticed?
There are more of us this time
And if you focus you can really start to blur the lines

It takes a calm eye
Takes a bright sign to see
It takes a strong mind
Is there a wrong time to dream?
Well not for me! 

I been dreaming in the day
I been dreaming in the night
I been dreaming up ways
I been dreaming in the day
I been dreaming in the night
I been dreaming up ways
To stay alive
Stay alive
Stay alive
Stay alive
Stay alive
Stay alive
Stay alive

 

LEAVING

When the morning rise I’m still tumbling down
The misty mountain in my mind
I remember how you are leaving now
But you still can’t find the time
Ain’t it nice when you’re life looks like
A daydream you had yesterday
But your heart’s wind changed it’s course again
And it blew my dream away
If I could really let you go
That would be okay

We’re all just floating around in space
With nothing to stand on
There are no nights there are no days just floating change
And now you’re gone gone gone gone gone

There’s a tick tick tock but its all one day
There’s a waking life on a burning page
There’s a tick tick tock on a jagged line
But it might as well be Tuesday all the time

I just wanna be your dog
And you can be my cat
And I can take you for walks
And you can scratch my back
And we won’t think about places
We should be instead
We’ll be wherever we are
Except for in our heads

When the morning fall I’m still climbing up
The misty mountain in my mind
I remember how you are leaving now
But you still can’t find the time
If I could really let you go
If I could really let you go
If I could really let you go
That would be alright

We’re all just flying around in space
With nothing to land on
There are no nights there are no days just floating time
And now you’re gone gone gone gone gone

DRONE LOVE

You send it out
And I see it coming from miles and miles away
When you send it out
Its a thrilling escape
A paralyzing spectacle of taste
And it looks so different
When its far away and I’m safe inside with a place to hide my face
Then suddenly its here
And there’s no escape
And it kills
And it kills
And it kills me

You scope me out
But I left sometime in the night
And I can’t be found
When you scope me out
I hide
But I hide in plain sight
Cause I want you to find me
And you look so different
When you’re far away from the night-vision prison land inside your mind
Its like suddenly you transcend
And its you again
And it kills
And it kills
And it kills me

WHEELS

You get it right
You get it wrong
The years grow shorter but the days are long
So get it up
And get it on
And just keep your love runnin' till the wheels come off

I feel alright
It feels all wrong
Its all one day its one long song
I’m gonna laugh all night
And howl at the dawn
And i’m gonna keep my love runnin' till the wheels come off

It feels so good
To let you go
My mind moves faster now and my heart beats slow
I thought I might just let you know
That I’m gonna keep my love runnin’ till the wheels won’t roll

We’re down to go
Down to the wire
The noise gets louder and the seas get higher
The world gets cold
The scene gets dire
But we’re gonna keep our love runnin’ till the wheels catch fire

The world gets cold
The scene gets dire
But we’re gonna keep our love runnin’ till the wheels catch fire

GIVE IT ALL BACK

Well it might sound simple but its hard to say

Gonna give it all back if it comes my way
I don’t feel crazy but I am today
Gonna give it all back if it comes my way
Well I love you when you’re wearing your original face
That you had before your daddy put you in your place
And i couldn’t care less what he has to say
Gonna give it all back if he comes my way
Well just the word water can’t get you wet
Before I saw you coming, you already went
And I don’t think about it my heart just beats
GOOGACHUNKGA-GOOGACHUNKGA- GOOGACHUNKGA-
GOOGACHUNKGA!
Theres a place where all the hate is like legs on a snake
But crawling there is hard if you can’t relate
And I really wanna tell you it’ll be okay
Wanna give it all back if it comes my way
And fire is only hot in relation to skin
If you make your own games you can always win
And it takes no difference if you choose to play
Gonna give it all back if it comes my way
Well it might sound simple but its hard to say
Gonna give it all back if it comes my way
I don’t feel crazy but I am today
Gonna give it all back if it comes my way
Gonna give it all back if it comes my way

THE RIVER

Down the mountain we go
Round the big tree so slowly
Run rabbit run from the headlight
To the shadow
See the city outside inside out
See the city outside inside out
See the city outside inside out
See
The owls are not what they seem

O! how it feels like we’re dreaming
Sing cricket sing the river
To sleep
See the city outside inside out
See the city outside inside out
See the city outside inside out
See
Sing cricket sing
The river
To sleep

EVERYTHING IS BULLSHIT

 
particle_kid_-_everything_is_bullshit_cassette.png
 

EVERYTHING IS BULLSHIT

Everything everything everything everything is bullshit
It's bullshit
Everything everything everything everything is bullshit
It's bullshit
It came out of a bull
It landed on the ground
It grew a little mushroom
And then a hairy ape man
He put it in his mouth
He started having thoughts
All kinds of ideas
Grew himself a little ego
Invented a new language
But then he built a tower
Designed a system of power
You know I read it in the paper
He made a tiny computer
That fits inside your hand
Communicate across the planet
Look back into the cosmos
Post a picture for your facebook
Make a profile for your snapchat
Murder people from a distance
And laugh at videos of cats
Everything everything everything everything is bullshit
It's bullshit
Everything everything everything everything is bullshit
It's bullshit
Everything is bullshit
Whoa!

 


MYSSUS CROW

WE COULD SWIM TO THE SOUTH OF JAPAN
OR WAY DOWN TO MEXICO
BUILD A SHACK NEAR A BEACH OF BLACK SAND
OR DO IT IN THE ROAD
I DON'T CARE ANYMORE
I LOVE YOU MYSSUS CROW
IF THEY GAVE ME A DIME
FOR EVERY TIME I KILLED TIME
MAKING UP RHYMES
AND STRUMMING WILDLY
WE COULD BUY OUR OWN ISLAND
HIDING IN TALL TREES
BUILDING SAND CASTLES ON OUR KNEES
PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! 
WOULDN'T IT BE NICE? 
IF YOU LET ME ROLL YOUR DICE
I'LL GIVE IT ALL BACK IF IT COMES 'ROUND TO ME
IF YOU'LL GO DOWN WITH ME
SAIL THE DARKEST SEA
IN OUR TINY BOAT
WILL IT STAY AFLOAT???
I DON'T CARE ANYMORE
I LOVE YOU MYSSUS CROW
WE COULD FLY TO AN ARCTIC LAND
OR RIDE A TRAIN WHERE THE ASPENS GROW
HIDE AWAY DEEP INSIDE A COMPUTER
NO ONE WILL EVER KNOW
YOU CAN MELT MY SNOW
I LOVE YOU MYSSUS CROW
IF THEY GAVE ME A DIME
FOR EVERY TIME I KILLED TIME
MAKING UP RHYMES
AND SCREAMING WILDLY
WE COULD BUY OUR OWN PLANET
OR EVEN A GALAXY
BUILDING NEBULAS AS WE PLEASE
PLEASE! PLEASE! PLEASE! 
WOULDN'T IT BE NICE? 
IF YOU LET ME ROLL YOUR DICE
I'LL GIVE IT ALL BACK IF IT COMES 'ROUND TO ME
IF YOU'LL GO DOWN WITH ME
SAIL THE DARKEST SEA
IN OUR TINY BOAT
WILL IT STAY AFLOAT???
I DON'T CARE IF I DIE
I'LL FLY BY MYSSUS CROW

HOW IS SHE SO AWESOME?
HOW IS SHE SO COOL?

little Gremlins

When light escapes unfound
when wind tears with a crash
i am a fire that has gone out
my orange turned to ash
little gremlins dance about
laughing as they steal my sound

When light escapes unfound
when wind tears with a crash
i am a fire that has gone out
my orange turned to ash
little gremlins dance about
laughing as they steal my sound

myssus willow

Old Myssus willow
she’s in love with her tea kettle pillow
in the shape of a hen
used to let go of it now and then
way back when
she still had that pet armadillo
then some fine fellow
gave her this cushion
of Uncond-ushion-al zen
now she sleeps in
with it tucked ‘neath her chin
a friend is a friend is a friend
til the end is your friend
be a friend
you’re my friend

 

Gunshow loophole blues

tears in my oatmeal, tear in my soup
tears keep fallin’ in an infinite loop
sonuvagun i got the gunshow loophole blues
Tears on my napkin, tears on my chest
guess i better cry me a bulletproof vest
son of a gun i got the gunshow loophole blues
I got the gunshow loophole blues
i wish i had some better news
but its all
tears in the classroom tears in the street
tears in the dancehall tappn’ my feet
sonofagun i got the gunshow loophole blues
(YEEEP!)
tears in the background, tears up front 
anymore cryin’s gonna be a flood
sonuvagun i got the gunshow loophole blues
tears on the front porch, tears in the yard
Shoot your foot, it ain’t that hard
ohmygod I got the gunshow loophole blues
I got the gunshow loophole blues
i got my hands up please don’t shoot

I got tears in the cafe tears on the beach
he’s got a straight jacket let’s sell him a piece
son of a bitch he’s got the gunshow loophole blues
sonuva * Pew! * he’s got the gunshow loophole blues
some of my friends they got the gunshow loophole blues
how ‘bout you?

 
 

another clean world

come out of the shower and step into my room
wind from the window as cold as a tomb
on my skin …
sound of the dryer doesn’t come too soon
i open up the door and i’m back in the womb
again …
wrap around my body like a cozy cocoon
They wrap around my body like a cozy cocoon
i got so many clean clothes now!
so many clean clothes now
i got so many clean clothes now
so many clean clothes now
i got so many clean clothes now
so many clean clothes now!
i got so many clean clothes now
so many clean clothes now

They wrap around my body like a cozy cocoon
i got so many clean clothes now!

eardrums eyes

i believe in you
you may not think you’re someone but i do
isn’t that something?
you drown your voice out in a foggy lake of reverb
’cause hearing through a mirror never feels good
when it’s crystal clear and it cracks
and it cuts your mind apart
And lets the night in…
but i can see right through
I can hear the voice of someone
saying something true
your truth is something dark and bright and new to us
exploding through the speaker like a firing line
reminding me i’m livin’ just like mortals do
afraid of what i’ll think about myself in the morning
i know hearing through a mirror is too informing
sometimes it fills the commentators with your mind
projecting all your secrets on the mountain side
making every weakness televised
Through your eardrums eyes
your cosmis emptiness so cleverly disguised
behind you
but i can see right through
i wanna hear the voice of someone
the voice of someone
saying something true
someone like you
i hope that you keep doin’ whachya do
cause i
I believe in yoooouuuuuu
yeah I believe in yoooouuuuuu
ohhh, I believe in yoooouuuuuu
yeah you are wicked cooooooool
I think you’re pretty raaaaaaad

PARTICLE WAR

 
Particle_War_ALBUMCOVER.jpg

Hollyweird

Everyone around here tryn’ to get ahead
I’m over there pretendin’ I’m already dead
Seven years of glass luck
Crumblin’ domnioes
This will be the final scene before I go

Wait, don’t leave us
Wait, you need us
Why, you feed us
All our reasons

Naked on the freeway, chasing after lights
Little bugs in speed traps, sirens of the night.
Guaranteed to change you, for better or for worse
Ditch your heavy baggage
you’re slowing down my hearse

Wait, don’t leave us
Wait, you need us
Why, you feed us
All are reasons

All of my days fall apart my apartment is all of my nights sinkin’ into the carpet and all my old ways fall apart into somethin’ and everyone’s heart turns to thoughts in a locked box

 

Fifth Song

Don’t want to be the chosen one
Don’t want to be no hit and run
Findin’ your way
Makin’ it pay
This world is no ordinary place
la la la la livin’ for today

Gotta make a reason for tomorrow
Gotta find the diamond in your sorrow
’Cause someday you’re gonna fly into the sun
(And) there won’t be any love left to give you
And someday you’re gonna die all alone
And everyone you know will be with you
will be with you

Don’t gotta be the righteous ones
Just gotta be what we become
Wish I could stay but Im finding my way
Take a moment have another day
Find yourself and give it all away

And I will ride along my own trail
Guided by the highway in my hand
’Cause someday I’m gonna fly into the sun
I don’t care if anyone will be watching
’Cause someday I’m gonna die all alone
And everyone I know will be with me

Someday we’re gonna fly into the sun
I don’t know if we’ll out run the burning bridges
Someday we’re gonna die all alone
And everyone we know will be with us
Everyone we know will be with us

 

Give up

Give up to the world, she’s winning
Live up to the way she’s living
You know, we know nothing
And nothing is just, it’s just not for us
To know

Cried about a dream, that’s dying
Climbed upon the tree of life, now I know
I own nothing, and nothing is free
It’s not for me to own

Give up to the world, she’s winning
Live up to the way she’s spinning
You know, we know nothing
And nothing is just, it’s just not for us
To know

 

Happy

You done your time, you’re in your prime
And all the world is your oyster
You can’t believe what’s happening
It’s all a dream

Hey, Hey, are you happy?
Hey, hey, are you happy?

You found a love that lifts you up
Just the one is good enough
Your pockets green, your hands are clean
It’s all a dream

Hey, Hey, are you happy?
Hey, hey, are you happy?
Hey, Hey, are you happy?
Hey, hey, are you happy?

Carved your life with a burning knife
And all the wolves ate up every slice
You made the scene, you’re make believe
It’s not a dream

Hey, Hey, are you happy?
Hey, hey, are you happy?
Hey, Hey, are you happy?
Hey, hey, are you happy?

 

Ring of Smoke

I said, “Hey babe, how’s it goin’?”
She said, "Man, how should I know?”
”Why’s it even goin’ at all and what the hell is makin’ it go?”
”You figure that one out,” she said, “I don’t think I’d like to know”
She took a long toke, blew a ring of smoke
And the band kicked off the show

I couldn’t hear the band no more
My thoughts were way too loud
Every time I tried to change the station
Her face was the only sound
She floated there above me, like a dark foreboding cloud
She took a long toke, blew a ring of smoke
And the rain came falling down

She said, “I’m lookin’ at you from the storms eye view
And I can see just who you are”
When I take away all your sunny days
You burn like a dying star
And I don’t know where I’m goin’, but together we’ll go far
And she took a long toke, blew a ring of smoke
Out of the window of my car

Now she’s got some other life in another part of the world
Sometimes at night I can see her light
In the eyes of my favorite girl
When I think about the way I cried
I just have to stop and smile
I just take a long toke, blow a ring of smoke
And the band plays for a while
