ondrew re/search/er (or as i know him, andy) is a genius and an all-around amazing guy. i hope he's doing well, wherever he is now. this ep singlehandedly got me into new jack swing. no other artist out there can evoke the atmosphere he does... just give this and the rest of his work a listen Favorite track: Temporary Ghost.

I thought I saw it / it looked just like me It's what I wanted / it's come to save me And it's not enough for you And it's not you I'm for I'm a temporary ghost on a deadkid platform And it's magical thinking I'm a crystal ball crime Waiting for the other to finish Hide behind furniture Under your banner / it doesn't matter, love It's a night letter / put on your armor, love I'm in the HVAC / 'cause you refuse to take me You and your lizard eyes / me on my drifting ice (We are always at home / never pick up the phone) When your eyes are folded in When your hands clap / when your mouth laughs It is not When the bone snaps in a collapse It is not
Rebreather 05:56
How are you always here when I'm around I look around and play dead You see me / leaving / everything The current / carrying / carrion / refuse (you used) to take me (in) You and your lizard eyes Reused and kept in ice I'm in the HVAC Living on stilts Drift ice You understand what I mean You understand the armor
Coda 02:01

hello internet cadet
as always you get more internet song for your internet buck
with your ol' bruh from another muh
stuffing as many alternate timelines in a tune as possible
like a duffel bag while the searchlights of badmen descend upon you
in your midnight escape to who knows where
carrying only what fits
which is a lot because I need so much

I'll never be heard and I'll never be who I want to be
but thanks for the internet support
all my luv, me
