about

When I first started anti-depressants, my dad would always tell me "remember where your true ability to cope comes from" and tap his finger to his chest. While what he was trying to tell me was generally unhelpful, I've adopted a productive misreading of it lately. My ability to cope comes from the darkness of my heart, my pain and the relationship I have with it. In a similar way, I've also been able to navigate my faith and relationship with Jesus Christ, which is riddled with doubt, confusion, contradiction, and despair. The more I encounter all these feelings, the more ordinary they become to me, and the less I give a fuck. I hope I feel better at some point. I also hope one day I understand why I believe in God even when I'd rather not. But at this point, I'll just roll with it and write sloppy songs about it and get by. By the way, let's bring back rock organ, it's fabulous.

John 20:29

Track Name: Prisoner
They bastardized your hymns there
when they sang in minor key
I stole a perfect anger
my savior God from thee
And twice before the cock crow he said now what you seem to say to me
I don't know this man given up to unbelief

What desolations
he hath made within this soul
This resignation like a black hole
A lust for death, the one you claimed you beat
desire it's thrust like a dog in heat

Each man's head an island
strangled and remote
This gut is seething caustic
but this grave opens at my throat
But now your blessing can locate my ability to cope
Silence bests a toxic brand of hope

I feel the strength of stones
simple and complete
dry bones with a quiet peace
And right behind my eyes
a seed of faith and love, a pustule full of syrup stuff

YEEEEAAAAH!!!

I AM A PRISONER OF WHO I AM!
AND I AM SOMEONE WHO LOVES YOU!
I AM A PRISONER OF WHO I AM!
AND I AM SOMEONE WHO LOVES YOU!
Track Name: Little Sunset Cloud
Little sunset cloud in the sky above
You were sent by God to show us of His love
When the golden sun has set, you go drifting by
Making pretty pictures in the western sky
