    my third collection of sounds and first physical release, made possible by caleb johannes (truman peyote) and jimmy hughes (turtle ambulance). breakfast of champs records will live on forever in our hearts. the pieces that are presented with this tape span certain moments in my life from '07 through '09... insomnia, falling in love with your best friend + keeping it a secret, being frustrated by the lack of community in urban areas, and how the apocalypse is going to be alright. 'the lighthouse itself is the rocket' is a reference to the second to last episode of the original 'prisoner' series which aired in '68.

Track Name: firing missiles at christmas and easter island
your face was the mountain
escalated from the sea
your body is an island
inhabited by trees
when shit goes to waste
we all want a taste
of the bbq fires that we blazed in a dry forest
without even considering its hosts.

and when a child dies
there is a singular weep.
but what if he or she grew up?
BUT WHAT IF HE OR SHE GREW UP!?
and i can't bear this weight anymore as being 20
still makes me child.
escaping means nothing
and you have yet to realize it.
and growing old means nothing
and i have yet to realize it.
and growing old means everything
but we have yet to realize it.

and having people to call your friends means everything
and fmly means everything
and our relationships at this precise moment mean everything
our actions are not destiny
and any one of us can change a space.
