lpspix This is the kind of album that is so messy that you don't get how it all actually works so damn well together. It's cacophony that works together as a singular piece of art. Jazz, trap, R&B, blues, field recordings, he threw all of it AND the kitchen sink to make a R&B record that is perfect for those into musical wanderlust.

Ryan (Feels So Reel Music) Trying to define why this is album is great misses the point of the release in my opinion. An incredible listening experience from beginning to end. Favorite track: The Interdependence of Everything.

Track Name: Your Life Story
hey you, what are you doin' today?
this is your life story
Track Name: Today, with Vigor
and i remember yesterday
when i had said "let's do it today"
let's get it goin'
do it for real
sometimes it's hard
but you know the deal
Track Name: Queen Chimera Pt.1
It's kinda funny how right now is nebulous
Can't pin it down
It's always a step ahead of--
You can't get to the other side to figure it out
It's kinda funny how we all wanna do it though
It's part of how we live
And with the way it's set up for us
We gon' party 'cause it's never gon' end

Say ooooooooh
And like a magnet
I try to grab it
But we repel instead
Say ooooooooh
See when I turn my back
It's like a jacket
Don't I look good in this

It's kinda funny how I'm putting on a show for me
Playin' all the parts
I don't know how I'm doin' it
How the hell did I create this illusion?
It's kinda funny how I gotta keep it going though
It's the only thing I got
I think I'm gonna live foreva-eva
I wouldn't be able to tell if not

Say ooooooooh
And like a magnet
I try to grab it
But we repel instead
Say ooooooooh
See when I turn my back
It's like a jacket
Don't I look good in this

Can't get down to it
But we still movin'
Track Name: You Got It
you don't have to be afraid
nah

you got it, baby
no need to be insecure 'cause
ain't nobody here girl, it's just you
and...you know what to do girl

you got it, baby
go ahead, get into yourself
ain't nobody here when it's your world
you know what to do girl

i know how it feels with them thoughts in your head
but listen to the words that i said ohhh

you don't have to be afraid
Track Name: _Stuck_
I know how it is
You been feelin' stuck
'Cause you said you would
Go and make a change
But that didn't happen
Instead you went back to your regular
I know how it is
You been feelin' stuck
'Cause you said you would
Go and make a change
But that didn't happen
Instead you went back to your regular

All I want
Nowadays, all i want is some peace of mind
I know I'm okay but it really don't feel that way to me
At least not right now
All I want
Most days I just wanna feel a flow goin'
I know I get in my own way
But I really feel like a slave to this
And I wanna be free right now
I know
The devil knows when I wanna get a move on
The second I say
I don't wanna do this no more
There it appears, I see it right now
I know

I know how it is
You been feelin' stuck
'Cause you said you would
Go and make a change
But that didn't happen
Instead you went back to your regular
I know how it is
You been feelin' stuck
'Cause you said you would
Go and make a change
But that didn't happen
Instead you went back to your regular
Track Name: Semantic Satiation
I know
And I know that your words are wise
But after a while...
They just sound [?????]
Track Name: My Machine (Digs a Hole)
aw nah here we go again
and i ain't really tryna bring the rain
but yea i'm afraid sometimes
that i dont have control over it

every time i have a problem
it seems i gotta think up the other ones
and even make up some
and pile 'em all onto me as i sink
and i'm steady goin' down down down
down down down it goes again
...down
down down down it goes again
Track Name: Queen Chimera Pt.2
???
Track Name: My House
i heard she said she wasn’t tryna play no games today
she said it made her feel like she was “one of them”
oh not this again
well you can take a different direction
but you still make a move sayin’ you dont wanna play no more
dont freak out honey
push some buttons baby
just don’t pull the trigger

wait
cuz that aint how you play at my house

i know she said she wasn’t tryna play no games today
unavoidable social competition
got her wishing this would end
but the ratio don’t change for no one
so good gon’ love some bad through and through
you know they’re friends
even when you wanna know who is who
and what’s what
you must compare

wait
is everything okay at my house?
Track Name: Zone Out
what you waitin’ for
all you need is to zone out

and ain’t no other perfect moment
better g’on in, hone in on
what you want
when you gon’ get a grip on it?
that of a grappler, own it
matter fact, might have to tackle opponents
that be deep in your soul as your soul gets
dragged down an even deeper hole by your own machine
you see what your life is about as you climb out
and you might’a found
something you love in the thick of it
i suggest, from what i’ve witnessed
take things one at a time so you can learn how to stick with it
and don’t be afraid to fail, that ain’t never gon’ get you shit
if you got the feelin' in you to do it now
go 'head and do it now
stop listening to my album
just go do it now
Track Name: Stories with Who? (Me)
there was this lady and she never had any problems and nothing ever happened to her
Track Name: You Be You
Don't you know you have my love?
Girl and we don't play no parts, well except for who we are
I just want you babe
I want the in's and out's
The up's and down's

Don't you rearrange yourself for no one else but you
'Cause baby I just want you to be you
No, you don't have to change for me
I just want you to be you
'Cause you know it makes me melt when you be youself

Oh girl, this ain't no exchange
And there ain't no dotted line where you can sign your name
I just want you babe
I want the in-between's and all around

Don't you rearrange yourself for no one else but you
'Cause baby I just want you to be you
No, you don't have to change for me
I just want you to be you
'Cause you know it makes me melt when you be yourself
Track Name: Dont Kill It!
dont kill it if you love it
no you dont have to turn this into something
it already is what you need
you know you might as well let it be
