I never really wrote anything about the release of this EP when it came out because i wasn't sure how i wanted to phrase everything while not being superfluous. Here are the album notes, 3 months late:
Lack is about high school, girls, my mother being 0/3 when it comes to raising children right and the human race's penchant for creating artificial separation within itself.
Save You From is about being so confident in the fact that i'm always gonna fuck everything up that i end every relationship before it starts... and while I sit here lamenting my "inescapable" loneliness, being so fucking self-absorbed in thinking that what i'm doing is best for them, i completely disregard(ed) how they felt and moved on.
Shoelaces was originally called "Depression is Having Tied Together Shoelaces While Your Family, Friends, and Everyone You Know Runs Ahead of You Saying 'Hurry Up'" but while that title very neatly encapsulated the theme of the song, i felt like after Superman i needed a break from long titles. anyway it's about depression totally ruling over the way the mind operates, as well as people who, thank god, i've cut off contact with, doing nothing to really help.
Socks is about a girl and the idea of that girl being so perfect in my mind that in the moment of that idea's inception, i was ready to do anything to have that imaginary circumstance be true (including ending myself or dragging my dick thru a mile of glass etc.) but i decided the realization
of that fantasy being completely selfish wasn't a great subject for a song, so i decided to do something totally out of character and just make it a love song.
it is sincerely my dream for anyone anywhere to listen to these songs and take away anything. if you ever wanna let me know how you feel about these songs (or about anything) email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and we can talk about whatever~
