leaaves after playing this record for Brian Ferry, his exact words were "i am marginally insulted i wasn't invited for a guest feature on this particular record, which is called 'culture crush' by Alarm Drum." then, he got into his black Jaguar (the one from the "For Your Pleasure" album shoot), eased back into the Brixton traffic, and disappeared from view. Favorite track: dog dove.

Track Name: whisper
find peace in knowing nothing
fractured with your face
to the sky
find pride, ironic pleasure
running with the cracks
in the sty
just to ease your mind

pulled by the softest whisper
something leaking out
over time
slow down, a landed vessel
inching closer to
the divine
it's not too much
it's just a place to find
Track Name: medicine
synthetic cures for public housing
embryonic cries
the pavement bubbling
keep digging holes
to fill again
while still,
the world is melting
Track Name: no tomorrow
when you ask
me how i feel,
i don't want to know myself
in case i find i'm someone else
i don't want to know if all of us
were right all along
i don't want to know if the sun
is going to burn on

LED brightens
kiss on my thighs
bite my fingers
in you, suicide
i adore you and your
shatterproof glass
eat me all night
no tomorrow
Track Name: dog dove
i wonder
are we moving too fast?
i'm running
but do i really need to?
how can i remember what's passed?
we're blurring
the difference between me and you
Track Name: shadow
the night's end
still no sign of changing
i fight the feeling now
til day breaks
i move towards an ending
to my delirium
elastic time
i never find the sharp end
to cut the feeling out
our past lives
they always hide inside us
i fight the feeling

i need a chance to find
the feeling
that our time is over

when night falls
the sun kind to exit
i fight the feeling now
my body
cannot fight, roll thunder
lucidity endures
beside my crimes
it's hard to find the answer
to subtleties in pain
our past lives
they always hide inside us
i fight the feeling
