Nathaniel Jones Whole thing is pretty rad and fun electro-dance punk or something. It's hard to define imo and that's a good thing. Vaguely reminiscent of MGMT. Thread is a certified BANGER. Favorite track: Thread.

about

i used to think life wasn't a blessing. i used to think life was just a happening. the more i talked to people the more i understood inevitable human suffering; how is that a blessing? we go thru life and our flawed world never stacks up to the ideal that we envision in our heads. but we forget. yes, we forget. stuck as the small beings we are we wander around in distraction. distraction from love. distraction from death. distraction from the transience of our own life. distraction from the beauty. yes! the world is beautiful! look at the sky! look at the trees! look at the earth! look at the beauty! look at what we'll one day become a part of when our flawed selves disintegrate! life is a blessing.

THANK YOU LUCKY STARS

Track Name: Sight Unseen
you're tired
alone cold while you sit and weep
desires
never seem to reach reality
they warned that
you'll dig your own grave with apathy
ignore them
without it wouldn't be a true story

A TRUE STORY
WHEN IT'S SAID AND DONE
YOU CAN LAUGH IT OFF

A TRUE STORY
YOU'LL LOOK BACK IN YEARS
WHEN IT'S NOT SO REAL

a purpose
you'll forget while you self-destruct
you're worthless?
that's nothing more than neurotic thoughts
and you won't
believe me when i can't feel your pain
but you don't
see the you that lives inside my brain

WHAT YOU ARE TO ME
IN MY MEMORY

WHAT YOU ARE TO ME
YOU'RE THE WARMTH OF HOME
BUT YOU'LL NEVER KNOW

YOU ARE
sweet as a doll ripping at the seams
a ball of light, love and empathy
YOU'RE SO
stressed out by the sight unseen
that you wanna die

sweet as a doll ripping at the seams
you are imperfect
doesn't mean you're dead to me!!
your life's not quite the life you dreamed but it's
STILL! YOUR! LIFE!!!

yeah i know you're tired of getting by

impulses
scream louder than the rational
and voices
tell you what to do when you don't know
the broken
will drag you down to where you're too good for
and poison
if only you could see you're so much more!!!!!

WHAT YOU'RE BOUND TO BE
BUT YOU'LL NEVER KNOW
YOU'LL BE SO MUCH MORE
WHEN IT'S SAID AND DONE
but you'll never know....
Track Name: Thread
HEY NOW
you're acting awful strange!!
you're channeling my words!!
but you don't hear my name!!!

YOU FROWN
to you i'm just a ghost!!
a bug that haunts your head!!
you'll never get to know!!

I'M NOT
a color or a shape!!
with organs, limbs, or flesh!!
a certain shade of beige!!

AND NO FEAR
of anything that's strange!!
cause i can see it all!!
and i can keep you safe!!

i'm not a god but a puppeteer
a kaleidoscope
come to shape your fear
you believe that it's you in charge
but you're just a thread
in the world at large

HEY NOW
what the hell's your deal?!
you're feeding me a sense!!
i'm not supposed to feel!!

IT'S FINE
trust what's in your head!!
but don't you dare repeat!!
what's better left unsaid!!

I'M NOT
a sense that you can name!!
i go by in a flash!!
your head where i invade!!

THEY'D CALL
you all sorts of names!!
if you tried to reveal!!
and you'd rather be sane!!

chorus

food for thought
it comes in a trough but
can you trust me?
delusion
a truth hid within
can be found
if i succeed

tell your friends
bet they won't understand yet you
know i'm something
so go ahead
call out if i'm there and
i'll say nothing

chorus
Track Name: Slugsong
i'm interested in
your attention, your affection
you treat me like there's
no connection, no intention
you seduce me
then reduce me
to a speck of dust
you treat me like i'm
just a bother
till i'm all dried up

I LUST AROUND YOU PRETTY
INDIFFERENCE TURNS ME GUILTY
YOUR SALTINESS WILL DRY ME OUT
AND KILL ME

WANNA BE YOUR SOFT AND SQUISHY
TILL YOU TELL ME I'M TOO WISPY
YOUR SALTINESS WILL DRY ME OUT
AND KILL ME

we are like silk and leather
i dream of something better
shriveled up and brown
sidewalk in the midst of town
in the parks
i see halos in the dark
i see demons
i see sparks
and i see the world come apart

I LUST AROUND YOU PRETTY
INDIFFERENCE TURNS ME GUILTY
YOUR SALTINESS WILL DRY ME OUT
AND KILL ME

WANNA BE YOUR SOFT AND SQUISHY
TILL YOU TELL ME I'M TOO WISPY
YOUR SALTINESS WILL DRY ME OUT
AND KILL ME
Track Name: 2 Cylinder Soul
i don't know where we'll go tonight
just promise you'll watch me from the sky
cause someday you'll grow wings and fly
but right now i'm all yours
let's ride

i don't care where we drive today
thru the desert, the snowstorm, the rain
if you could time travel
would you relive these days?
when i was your spaceship
when i was your lifeboat
when i was your place to stay?
Track Name: Bad As Myself
i had a dream last night
it was a scene from a movie
but you weren't by my side
when the music was soothing
and the couples hit the floor
but i couldn't find you
and anxious i ran alone
looking for my mind that night i said

hey
do you say?
does anyone else?
feel bad as myself?
today?

i'd pray
if i could pray
that nobody else
feel bad as myself today

i had a dream last night
we stood facing each other
when the lights were dark and low
and i was your lover
but it felt like i lie
as i leaned in for a kiss and looked up
you turned your back and i cried
i cried, i cried, i cried out i said

CHORUS

i had a thought in the morning
if anything my subconcious showed me
every bliss has an end
so what's the point if you end up lonely?
i sat and let it sink in
don't understand why it never works out
maybe i'm scared to commit
or trigger happy when i see first doubt
