about

This is the first album in a Triptych describing various forms of tragedy. Which one this describes is rather self-explanatory. I wrote this album because of my interest in Nietzsche's critical work "The Birth of Tragedy." It is probably my most detached piece yet, hence the use of general truisms and very 'human' concepts throughout the album. It is meant to be excruciatingly Dionysian. Obviously, there are parts where the personal bleed through, like a man speaking his own story to which others 'ID.'

It was made mostly by using synths I edited and programmed on Garageband and then put together and produced using ProTools. Vocals were obviously recorded on ProTools.

Track Name: The Birth of Tragedy
'And that is how I was born'
Track Name: Enter Wine, Sex, Sin
A Darkness descends over us
Life drips out like a faucet
Our eyes look like dust
Track Name: Chorus
Look up in the sky
We’re all going to die
Unless we
Survive the Night

Hey
We’re human
We’re in Love
Down in this pit
We can get out of it

Look up in the sky
The birds will fly
And the lights
Have gone out

We’re all going to die
I don’t want to lie
I don’t want to fall
Without You

And the Sun rises
And the grass is Cold
And we kiss
For the very first time

Have you ever met God?
In person?
I have
Track Name: Siren
Do you see?
What?
Never said anything
Or cared about next to anything
Love
Bring money hate art
Singing
Excruciating
Fucking
Hating

Are we god?
Seen
Sex drugs lies
I’m a pretentious
I’ve been raped too

Where were you when
The dead girl
Killed
Looked you in the eye
Made the mistake
To wink

I would rather
Burn my house down
Look at her heart
What’s purity
Made fun of
I’m not like that anymore
I don’t like you
Is this okay?
Let’s go to sleep

Entirely
Not enough
Don’t do it
All for the thought of you

How’s the job
Who’s the girl
What’s a knife?
Am I still here?

Burn a snob
Around the world
Get a life
What the fuck?

We care about too much in life
So push it out and fulfill
Your wildest dreams
And fantasies
Are at your fingertips will
Track Name: Delial
'...to look at that little anemic and staving girl
One could just...'
Track Name: Forget Yourself
We fought for everyone
We Love, we don’t judge
Just look, our human selves
We’ve won, we’ve beaten hell

We love everybody
Everyone is equal to me
I’m as selfless as can be
I’ve forgotten how to see

We can’t do anything
We play around the garden and sing
We don’t have a lot to live for
I’d like to die, it would sure be nice to die
I’d like to die, it would sure be nice to die
