So it begins again. Just like it always does, with Nietzsche face down arms bound in a padded room, drooling aphorisms in his sheets. In the garden I daily lament my fate to feel the awful burden of these footsteps but never see the likeness of your face. In my mother's arms once I could drift away, but now I'm kneeling lightless at your doorstep, a curse of Hallelujahs in your name. I need you here. I always need you here.

So I said "The worst is yet to come dear. Vultures are encircling this freeway and these sentences." Then I said " I want you till it's over. Go ahead and finish me. Go ahead and finish me." Chorus: It's alright. The words that convinced me. They never leave. They never leave. So I said "Death is in my fingers. Count the reasons over now. Count the reasons over now." Then I said " I want you at the ending. Go ahead and finish me. Go ahead and finish me."

I was born. Some other stuff happened, & now a universe of asymmetrical notions lives in my head.

By the riverbed meaningless & random, I saw you walking behind a geometric puzzle hidden under glass here. It lay between us when I lost my mind. You're here & all the doubt between us. If you're leaving me I don't believe in anything.

So listen up to a fathomless dark & street lamps that render a bleak imitation. I feel everything and nothing.

Entropy 03:29
Chorus I remember everything, the calmest winter and a grey light rising. & I remember everything the blackest summer and your warm voice leaving. I remember everything the calm of winter and a grey light rising. & I remember everything the blackest summer and your warm voice leaving. Verse: & I took the edges of the paper and measured out the distance to the margins with the end of my hand. I drew the only shape that lingers in my dwindling periphery now even when I know that you're gone, You know that I am never sleeping, but staring at the ceiling and regretting now each word that I said. I try forgetting it. I try forgetting it. I try forgetting it. I reach into the void with my hands. Chorus Remember everything the calmest winter and a grey light rising. I remember everything the blackest summer and your warm voice leaving. I try forgetting it. I try forgetting it. I try forgetting it. I reach into the void with my hands.

about

ithica Tulsa, Oklahoma

"Ithica presents a sprawling sonic dream scape of shimmering electro-pop that recalls M83, The Postal Service and TV on the Radio. It’s an ambitious blend of electronica and organic instrumentation that’s ethereal, emotional... It’s pop on a grand scale, but it still manages to retain the intimacy of a folk artist’s labor of love."
