about

'Cuckoo Sweetheart' is the third of an organ trilogy created over a span of 4 years. 'Cruddy Dummy Organ Buddy' and 'Ego World' divulged in obscure worlds of isolation, nostalgia and vulnerability. 'Cuckoo' restores balance to these worlds and gives them wings while maintaining its mystery.

Thank you for listening!!!!

Track Name: On Top!
On top! On top! (You’ll never know, you’ll never grow, you’ll never show it to me!)
On top! On top! (You’ll never be, you’ll never see, what it all means to me!)
Dancing on a frozen lake
Before those insect coppers came and took me away
To tell me about
The etiquette of having a moment
Laughing into eternity
Before those midnight men approached me
To wail on my face
And blindly demand
The money on the ground that was scattered around them
Feeling outcast at thanksgiving
Wondrin’ if I’m worth forgiving
For who I am
Inside of my head
When I know I’m beautiful but am made to feel red instead
In this world I feel surrounded
Authority figures keep me grounded but I
Break away! And give myself some time! And let
Everybody know how this idiot shines without
Cops or criminals or mental health
Breaking down this fortress that I’ve built for myself
But when they do break through
And I turn to stone
Then they all go home, then we all go home
And they’re all alone
You were an enemy
But I want you to breathe!
On top…
Track Name: Sweet Suite 2- Giving It Away
Giving it away, away, away, I know
Giving it away, away, away, I know it’s not that serious
Giving it away, away, away, I know
Giving it away, away, away, sounds like it’s more
Trouble than it’s worth
When I was a younger child I didn’t know how these things would
Affect me
Track Name: Cuckoo Sweetheart
You can see her by the river
Smoking cigarettes much quicker
When she doubles back to find
Her body that had died and was left behind

Her mother was waiting at home with cake
Gratitude filled up her plate
But when she returned to bed again
Obsessive paranoia settled in

Cuckoo sweetheart
Cannot find her way inside of it
Cuckoo sweetheart
When you find me, come inside of me

She’s an empathy machine
Enduring her darkest dreams
So when we’re in bed I hold her tight
And we tell each other sweet dreams every night

Her spirit and being never ceased to be
Extraordinary sensitivity
Led my hand through an unseen land
I didn’t want to know or understand

Worlds self-made and self-nourished
Are so ghostly and monstrous
And only fear of madness will
Drive us out of our shells when we’re ill

She gave me friends family and a home
I know it’s cliché but I’m less alone
And though it’s taken years to face
I feel as though I’ve finally found my place

Cuckoo sweetheart…
Track Name: Sleepy Teenager Romantic
(Silent Lyrics)
Going feral in an inoffensive way
Pop and locking in a loop
I want to roll in bed all day with a draft sliding by
Maybe a quick bike ride outside
Take a nap while warm songs play
Ebb and flow with you
Track Name: Hyper
(Silent Lyrics)
Hyper is happy
Hyper is alien
Track Name: Hot Haze
Looking round the world to find
You were there and you were mine
(Hot haze, hot haze, hot haze)
Washing up and down my face
I embarrassed you and myself
Turned what was private into a public hell
(Hot haze, hot haze, hot haze)
Washing up and down my face
I hear my name though no one’s calling my name
Am I in trouble or am I just insane?
(Hot haze, hot haze, hot haze)
Washing up and down my face
I couldn’t help, I could only gawk
Their eyes were watching god
(Hot haze, hot haze, hot haze)
Washing up and down my face
Track Name: This Weird Life (Gratitude)
You were always in my heart
When I was lost, when I was found
This dead dream, this weird life
Cover me in shadows, drown me in light
Fantasize about a love
Survive another day, take the pain away
You were always in my heart
When I was lost, when I was found
This dead dream, this weird life
Cover me in shadows, drown me in light
You were always in my heart
When I was lost, when I was found
Track Name: Vibrator On Ukelele [Hidden Track]
Samples 'Frances Ha' (2012)
