    hi. welcome to the untitled spirit waves mixtape. it actually does have a title, but that title is "untitled", because i have a very unoriginal sense of humor. anyway, you're basically encouraged to call this album whatever you want. call it "bob", i don't care. other funny title suggestions were the thinking emoji and "good ol johnnie tomokers". it's made up of the past few months worth of songs, mostly little sonic experiments and such that i still really enjoy listening to but don't think quite make the cut for what the next major spirit waves release should be.
    a lot of these songs were written impulsively after various mundane events in my life, and didn't really have time to be practiced and built upon and to mature over time like most of the stuff that ends up on my major LPs. i find a lot of beauty in their spontaneous nature, and i hope you will too. this spontaneousness has always been a key
    component of what spirit waves is, and i'm glad that i was able to find a good balance between improvisation and quickly written songs in the production of this rekkid.
    there are so many people i want to thank, but i'm gonna refrain from listing names and just say that if you're anyone who's been in my life in the past few months as i worked on these tracks (and many others!), i love and appreciate and thank you from the bottom
    of my heart. to everyone who's come out to shows or listened to my music or anything really: thank you so much. thanks to the one or two haters out there, even! you're only motivation! i'm so excited for you to hear the new album whenever it's finished, and i hope this will tide y'all over for now. :)
    no ETA on the new album, btw. there may end up being another mixtape or two on the road to it. i want to make sure it's something really special, worthy of sitting up there with she made me want to vanish, NO HOME, and impossible virtue. <3
    thanks once again for the support, and i'll absolutely see you again later this year. :V

Track Name: two lovers
this time we don't need
to mask our anxiety
we can remove them together
place them on the table
never felt as tense
as this newfound sobriety
if it makes you uncomfortable
we don't need no labels
so all of these nights
i panic and clutch to my chest
i'm merely wishing you the best
i only want the best for you
and all of these daytimes
where we sleep in till two

we're two lovers but just not
just two friends we're just two
two two two
two two two (two two two)
two two two
two

so i made it clear
by changing my actions
and yours never did
they still serve to confuse
so arms to the skies
i demand satisfaction
i worked so damn hard
i didn't come here to lose
and all of these nights
i wait and wait for your call
and all in all in all
i guess it was i who stepped off
and all of these daytimes where i can't focus
'cause i'm wishing for you

we're two lovers but not just
two friends we're just two
two two two
two two two (two two two)
two two two
two

don't write me off as nothing yet
you haven't seen what i can do

i put on my helmet
a brilliant cadet
'cause i know that you're worth
every drop of my sweat
i'll straighten right up
and i'll pay every debt
my tie's on backwards
are we doin this duet

oh you say you want to jet
yeah well i bet
you'll be back here again
in my arms
in my arms again
faster than you know
Track Name: evil tricks
my friends all say
i've been insufferable since i met you
and i mean it's all true
i'm so in love with you
and every little thing you do

every breath you take
you turn down the stereo
and we make a lil housequake
if you were to ghost on me
i don't know what i'd do

i thought i was cool
chillin with some freaky bitches
but i was really the bitch in the relationship
and now i love it
oh god i miss you

rolling things back
to how they were at the start
my surfer girl it should have been you
now i feel so lost
and i don't know what to do

but i guess in the end
it's all ashes anyway
spiraling out of control
the things our brains can do to hurt us
evil tricks

i keep on finding myself
getting closer to you
and i know you do too
but darling,
my throat won't say the words

turn that romantic sub into full text
before you end up
with a list full of regrets
it ain't over til its over
girl i love you
Track Name: fly fishing
and when the line is cast
that's the moment when
you'll come to in your bed

she cocks the trigger
there it goes explodes
what's the trajectory of a travelling piece of lead

so many dreams and things
that you wanted to do
they're still ringing in your head

born into a bastard world
a cruel cruel world
that has always wanted you dead

but don't give up
i still believe in you
no don't give up
you'll see the light someday darling baby
Track Name: the day the milk expired
the day the milk expired
that was the day i ran away
there's no point sticking around
if no one wants you to stay
we go through so many upsets
in futile attempts to find our way
knowing that our purpose is to die
beaten in a hanging cage
but still refusing to give up

i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i refuse to die i r
Track Name: girl story 2
i don't wanna break the good times
but i've found perfection in you
the way you laugh the way you taunt
you open wounds then you sew em up
i'm not afraid until you go and leave me
and then i stay in bed and i still feel you
and it comforts me and i go to sleep
and you still appear in my dreams
you know that's very, very, very, very rude.
Track Name: going north (for stabscotch)
i'm going north for the winter
where everything
gets harder
i last longer

breathing much
harder
falling
for you

feeling you up
in your pickup truck
such a familiar sight
my blue haired angel

she waits
for me
only
for me

"don't you tell a soul"
oh don't you worry
i'll keep it
locked up tight
but i can't help
that i blush so much

red and blue
swimming together
it reminds
me of you
everything
everywhere that i look
reminds me of you

something gives way
promise me
you won't be mad
okay?
promise me
you won't be mad
okay okay
promise me
everything's okay
okay okay

can't let it out
just wanna let it out
i see one. true. escape.
(lpc sample: uh, there IS something standing in my way)

i see
something standing
in the way

promise me
you won't be mad
kay
promise me you won't be mad
okay okay okay

breathing slows
the world crawls
i glance up and hope
my last sight will be you

but all i see
is drywall
and the same four walls
i always see
fuck, fuck!

promise me you won't be mad, kay?
promise me you won't be mad okay okay
kay okay
Track Name: sick as a dog
you make me sick as a dog
but i still adore you
runnin round i'm goin crazy
but yet i still ignore you
unstable let's keep steady
i can tell i can tell when you're ready
if there's any places that you wanted to go to
well now here's your chance

start by
removing me from your lips
whisper a word that breeds
silence
and i can't help but think
now i know you better
i don't know why i ever expected better
from anyone

you're comfort food to me
and you know i'm no good for you (so good for you)
and you you've never helped me to improve
and now he's got you trapped and you cant move
spin the globe and wait it out
watch the pieces come together and shout
but it's too late too late too late i'm gone gone gone gone gone gone gone gone gone
you won't miss me

so step one:
remove me from your list
use a word that breaches contract
silence
and i can't help but think
no i can't help but think i know you better
i don't know i don't know why
i ever expected better from anyone

jam it out now jam it out now jam it the fuck out

let it go let it go now let it go go go go go go go go go
woah woah woah let it go now
Track Name: bad day
(unintelligible)
