about

This number here Quandary entitled "Evaporating Maps". It's a recurring blend of themes of mine about the futility of control, the dominance of illusions and the ever-receding veneer of societal and individual identity.

lyrics

try to swallow the sun
as these dead words get burned and fall off my tongue
wrong and corrupt, it's gotta destruct
I just... want all of the love

much respect to the dead; y'all live in my head
like every memory I could never forget
things an infinite web with a ripple effect
deal with the net results if what I didn't intend
so alone but well connected
don't know the answer, would you help me guess it?
the results all seem self-directed
self-important but don't consult reflections
hope's a lover's staff walk with that
till your off the map then do not come back
All this crap is electric fodder that'll rot you black
prodding at the bowels of Baphomet
bought and stashed they thought of that
our hearts attached to houses cars stocks and cash
and when the walls collapse, the frauds unmasked
we all can laugh and continue on our paths

try to swallow the sun
as these dead words get burned and fall off my tongue
wrong and corrupt, it's gotta destruct
I just... want all of the love

is that so much to ask?
covet what others have - clutch and grab
all this stupid fucking stuff such is that
once you get you don't even want to have
so I'm done submitting to it and running back
stop atoms, spot patterns, thoughts chatter
your brain talks data, you chop at it
and pop tablets to calm madness
and a lot happens that does not matter
the burning question is
how often must we learn this lesson?
our urges pressing on our senses
obsession turns depression
fill the void with children's toys
a million choices but you're still annoyed
... long as I have to look ... I can never be found
and god dammit gravity has been getting me down
so let us sit on the ground and tell the sad story
of how our wings were clipped so we could have more shit

try to swallow the sun
as these dead words get burned and fall off my tongue
wrong and corrupt, it's gotta destruct
I just... want all of the love
