lyrics

who’s to say
precisely what was shouted
the kid was hit in the face with a smiley shake

all the rats
that rummage through the garbage
do we look just the same from the ships in outer space

a bird in the hand
like a rose that had grown from the shit in the garden
oh it’s just as well

who’s to blame
there is water and glass on the living room carpet
salt water fish and Christmas lights lights lights lights

what a strange little party
a tray of cocaine inside the water closet

understand it
but only if you want to
scrawled across the floor

small talk beneath a paper lantern
debasing this place just feels right right right right

what a strange little party
though it’s late it’s just getting started
a unitarian party
a tray of cocaine inside the water closet

words by: M. Kong

about

8-bit crEEps Chicago, Illinois

Syd Barrett singing happy birthday to David Byrne.
Psych-Wave.

Inspired by a lone, nameless man. His dilated pupils are equal parts apathy and anxiety.
The square-wave soundtrack was a worm in his brain.

The dimly lit Chicago arcades he would frequent left strange impressions on young minds. This is where you'll find those impressions.

This music scene is giving us the crEEps.
