brain’s just making up shit
somewhere I’ve been
PaPa’s house on summer days
but abandoned
inside it’s all fucked mayhem
no sound, I’m scared
everything is in decay
I’m just passing through
I did not see you
I was in the sea
I was underwater
but I still could breathe
strange room I confront him
he’s clad in chrome
when I go to step away
he lets me have it
I can see the knife slide
going deeper
yet I cannot feel the pain
it’s going slower
I’m just passing through
on to the porch
now it’s a ledge
200 feet high but I’m still in bed
floating high above the earth
surging power from the core
I see the buildings crumbled down below
and all the people
gone, where did they go?
they went away
this hall leads to nowhere
somewhere I’ve been
my high school in Tarpon Springs
but abandoned
I’m just passing through

“Rainstick Cowbell makes searing music that’s intensely personal…[from] intense, clear-eyed rants to unhinged exorcisms. It’s exhilarating to hear music this raw.”
