about

"Joseph Airport Records' inaugural film takes you on a journey through time and imagination. The band stars in an extended-play program that may very well include a concept for you to identify and manipulate."

Track Name: Dense Phonological Neighborhoods
In the suburbs of bizarro Minnesota
Lived a self-identifying nerve nerd
Who bakes the synonym buns
For whimsical bake sales

Welcome to the terminal moraine
Where your frigiderriere’s
Not conjured by a wizard in the sky
And winter is a worthy
Opponent to the sun

Leon Sphinx shot the hawk
Perched on the barbwire
Fence around my heart

In dense phonological neighborhoods
We’re fairly somnambulant
On deserted avenues
Where the phonemes that you use
Aren’t conjured by a wizard in the sky
Track Name: He's A Gem Of A Man
He’s a gem of a man
Ben Pens, ready to slam
He’s up for a jam
If your lady will countenance that

He’s got both feet on the earth
Mustache apparent since birth
Recording tunes in the basement
Identifying tracks for displacement

He’s a gem of a man
Rocking when he can
Blasting down barriers
Laughing hilarious
Track Name: Sky Burial (Dirty D Mix)
Give me a sky burial
When it's my time to die
Feed me to the sky
Where raptor's beak
Scrapes sinew from bone
In a sky burial

This holy ground
Too rocky for graves
These predatory birds
Transmigrate me home
In a sky burial

The psychopomps' rules
Soul filled with jewels
The holy man's chillum
Enlightens all fools
When it's my time to fly
Give me the tools
Track Name: The Stars, Their Ghosts, The Moon
The stars, their ghosts, the moon
Transfixed to the mountaintop
Pledged unlimited funding today
Most we’ll see in 7 years

The stars, their ghosts, the moon
The bodies wander the orbit
Clanging their chains in the weft
Of the woof on its transit

The stars, their ghosts and the moon
Let loose with the cup and the spoon
It’s like a dr(e)am
Our ghosts making out on the moon

The stars, their ghosts and the moon
Going viral and going real soon
It’s like a dr(e)am
Our ghosts redeemed on the moon

The stars, their ghosts, the moon
Transfixed to the mountaintop
Pledged unlimited funding today
Most we’ll see in 7 years
Track Name: Moonfish
Moonfish
Cool silver whitefish
Skimming in ripples
Bubbling tipples
Fish of the moon
O my love
Track Name: He Doesn't Want To Come Out (Starter C-Section)
Safe and warm
In the mound
Center of attention
Man of the hour

Southpaw sensation
Safe in the mound
He doesn’t want to come out

So the manager surgeons
Extract him
From the mound
He doesn’t want to come out
Track Name: Can We Form Alliances?
Instrumental
Track Name: Surreal Killer
Surreal killer on the moor
Shetland hound hires a dish
A Cubist cigar in the shape of a

Luminous anger
Psychedelic banger
A shade of lime green that tastes
Suspiciously of lies

Why can’t I understand the guy
Who lists the benefits of being high?

Elixirs and lotions
Immunity potions
Pursuing the wall to somehow get the rent
Penning the hogs that austerity sent

To your living room
To your mind
To your chamber
To your surreal killer

Why can’t I understand the guy
Who kills the residents of Panoply?
Track Name: When It Left His Hand
Smashmouth superstar
Chop block to the ankles
Eyes gone wide

You could see the arc was broken
When it left his hand

They canceled the motorcade
8-mile blowout at Hot Wheel City
Aviators and earpieces

We could see the route not taken
When it left his hand
Fingertips gripped the laces
When it left his hand

All routes cut to signifiers
Slide rules refused to
Light up the faces
When it left his hand
Track Name: Baldridge
I should make this happen
To avoid the exhaustion
Of kicking myself
In the ass repeatedly
Out of gas seemingly

It’s the idea of driving
To the hills alone
That’s so non-appealing
Got a feeling solitude
Take it with salt grain

Suss it with coffee cigarette

You are so candy coated
My sugar throated
Autumn girl
