Congratulations You almost made it You asked for nothing You got me now Don't go It's too wet and cold Now it's getting late And it looks like snow I could play it straight I could be a man I could set it straight Yes I know I can Oh God, I have broken my staunch code of honor You're free to move on, so walk out if you wanna But if you stick with me, I swear I won't do this again Congratulations You almost made it You asked for nothing You got me now Don't go In this bitter storm Home may not be sweet But it's dry and warm You've long since forgotten what it was about me So pack and unpack but if you can't get out When your life is a shambles, you'll never be ready to go Congratulations You almost made it You asked for nothing You got me now Don't go Don't go It's too wet and cold Now it's getting late And it looks like snow I could be a man I could play it straight Not on a red-eye flight Gone without a trace No ribbon, no rose, no tuxedoed presenters When you win the contest that no one else enters So don't play the victim You're here 'cause you want me to break you Like my bullshit code of honor Congratulations You almost made it You asked for nothing You got me now Don't go.

Cool 06:03
She tells you of her foremost complaint Just sit and listen, you're her brand new saint How she can't have me, and why you are a friend The nightmare shadow in her head just won't mend A foil you cannot duplicate, a man you'll never be You stand before her, but all she sees is me. You're real and so you're boring You're real and so you're fat You're real and so you feel things You're real and who wants that? You're real and so you love her You're real that's where I sat You're real she won't remember You're real and who wants that? I am all she wanted, I am all she saw Mephisto and godzilla all naked on the floor I'm in the past, but I am all important I sipped her brandy blood and make you impotent I had a way of tossing back my hair You do it too but she will never care I'd tell her to forget me, but I am not around I am legend now, and you are on the ground. You're gone because you wanted You're gone 'cause you held back You're gone because you told her You're gone in favor of a ghost You're gone and I am sorry You're gone it's tit for tat You're gone 'cause I was too cool I apologize for that, yeah I am all she wanted, I am all she saw Mephisto and godzilla all naked on the floor

There's a great big hole in the sky above the North Pole Opened by a bullet that was fired from the Grassy Knoll Ripped out wide by the spray of the brain And the blood and the bone that was something Cobain And the hole in the sky is a hole into Hell D.B. Cooper jumped in and he fell and he fell Now he rots in the silt 23 fathoms down With a hundred unsinkable ships. Swing it back and forth Until we find magnetic north Hollow Earth lit up by a tiny sun The sun spins around at night - look up, I can prove it now - Those are not stars, those are Chinese lights There's a great big hole in the sky above the North Pole Opened by a bullet that was fired from the Grassy Knoll Like a mirror image of a crack in the equator Full of arsenic, Hawaiian Punch and sewer alligators And the hollow Earth is a ball of fire tonight And the future is bright in this nuclear light It shines like the Hope Diamond. And the hollow Earth overflows with lemon drops And we're jumping like bugs in a microwave Dancing and twitching and why? Because we're supposed to. Swing it back and forth Until we find magnetic north

about

2020 wasn’t good for much, but being homebound did allow me to sort through 30 years of old recordings, and unarchive tons of shelved and incomplete material.

And then finish that shit!

I am not really interested in doing “albums” anymore… holding music back until a dozen arbitrarily-linked songs are mixed and mastered and the stars and planets align. But at the same time, “singles” are kind of boring and “EPs” demand some degree of cohesion, and I don’t want to be boxed in like that. So here is what I offer you: THREE-PACKS

Remember those randomly-bagged multipacks of comic books they used to sell in toy and drug stores? You wouldn’t be able to see what was inside until you tore open the plastic, and the comics might be brand new or fifteen years old… it was just whatever happened to be laying around when they bundled it up. There was no thematic connection, no rhyme or reason to the collection, and one bag could even contain books from both Marvel AND DC. I was introduced to so many fun stories that way, and that is how I am going to introduce (or reintroduce) you to all of these songs.

This three-pack includes “Congratulations” (2011), “Cool” (1994) and Joy Basu's 2014 remix of “Magnetic North” - all recently completed using a combination of the original recordings and new material. You can read more about each track if you click through to its page.

I’m not promising these three-packs in any regularly-scheduled fashion… and I’m not going to tell you about them in advance. When I feel like one is ready, it will just appear. They may have Skyscape/Hanslick Rebellion/Collider songs on them. All of my records from the past that are not currently available digitally will be represented, as well as material you have never heard, including brand-new stuff. But as far as I’m concerned, all of this music is new to most of the universe - and these are fresh versions of everything anyway, so I hope that in a way it will also be new to you.

Let’s have some fun <3
