Walking down the road, it's easy to see That you don't need me I am so lost that I can't breathe Trying to leave, but I don't know where to go Now I'm going down And I'm losing ground And I'm outta sound And it can't be found I don't know how I got here And I don't know how I'm gonna get out There's another way for me to feel relief Gotta move on, gotta run on, Gotta keep myself together now

"I am The One", is what you say In your calm and casual way Together with each other Is the only state we're legal in I lay you down in misery We're in love, can't you see? Straight face hides who's listening Watch the rain come down in our room Watch as drops descend Gone for awhile Is what I'll be when I leave Gone for awhile There is nothing left of me Analyze 'til death does us part Analyze, don't get past start You left me, I let you go Juliet says goodbye to Romeo How 'bout a slap in the face You will become my disgrace It always goes down just like this Did you ever really know I'd bend and then I'd break? Gone for awhile Is what I'll be when I leave Gone for awhile There is nothing left of me

I don't know you As you look away Eye contact is so hard to make When you know you can break You look down at your feet I turn and I phase out I'm living in a fantasy Give up my intimacy I have done this before Why do I even try? I'm just gonna throw it all away And you, you'll only want to stay Save me from myself I can't do this all alone But where will I be, and when will I see That this whole thing is my reality?

Lazy in the park, not a care in my mind Sit down by a tree, time to get to know me Remove my only skin, and then we can begin To find out what's really inside Killing time until I figure it all out A second, a minute, an hour, a day These all mean nothing to me once I begin To find out what's really inside Sleeping for a while, wake for a spell Drifting side to side, is this heaven or hell? Take my time for it's not worth it to speed Patience is a virtue, but wisdom's what I need Lazy in the park, not a care in my head I'm staring, I'm dreaming, I've lost my way once again I could find epiphany, but I'll sleep instead To find out what's really inside I'm going to see her there Take off our clothes, no one will stare A whisper from me to you Of the one thing that I won't do Keep the picture, keep the ring Keep on playing, while she sings

Here I am again Same old situation Lives cross, intersect A lonesome complication I have no faith anymore For things to work out right Everybody needs someone But still I avoid the light Feeling warm and nestled Under a caring, loving arm But in the end I still will bend And to me I may do harm By and by, this time of mine Don't worry 'bout me, I'll be fine I choose what's chosen for me I lose what's lost for me (and I take what's given) I choose what's chosen for me I lose what's lost for me Bullets of rain Shatter the ground like pain Reverberation and intoxication Continue to make me insane Two months to go What to do 'til then The ties that bind why do I defend When in the end... We'll be no more Stabbing at the guilt that I have in store

I can't be touched I'm impervious I'm dangerous I might be a god I have the skill And I have the will I'm not run o' the mill Am I real or fraud? I break the mold I never grow old Of this I'm told That I can't lose I'm not a fake Don't know mistake Your heart, I'll take How can you refuse? And when you try to find my weakness, you'll find That I'm infallible all the time Make a contract And I'll surely act On a legal pact Won't break my word to you Be your anything Be your everything Be your nothing thing Be whatever I'm s'posed to And when you try to find my weakness, you'll find That I'm infallible all the time There is nothing that I can't do or be But this perfectionism don't come free I may have searched far and wide for you But to thine own self you gotta be true

Death by anxiety That'll be the end of me Clutching a handkerchief A common riff for all to see You take and you never give Meteorologist in the mist Partly cloudy Saving my notes again A stupid grin is on my face Cancel this worthless trip What a rip give me money back Anything you wanna say? That's what I thought, you're just a parasite You take and you never give This is no way to live

Good night, and goodbye There's no more to be said tonight Sallow, sallow is me Take my hand, and go to sleep There's no one who will hear you weep Take me down, take me out Take me down, I am astounded Sallow, sallow is me

about

Originally created for the 2010 RPM Challenge (rpmchallenge.com), Adversapolis is a unique collection of songs written and recorded in a month. These are really "songs", too, as they all (save for one) have lyrics, unlike most everything I do.

The words were largely written during a particularly self-reflective time in life, and it's hard to identify completely with the sentiments contained therein nowadays. Still, despite the hasty and crude recording of some of it, it's a time machine to a certain time in my life that I want to remember.

about

Nebyoolae San Diego, California

Hi, I'm Mike! I write music that hopefully makes you respond with "Cool!", an appreciable nod, and at least the occasional head bang, because that's the best genre of music there is.

I also make 90s-influenced pop rock as Fench (fench.bandcamp.com), and funky alt rock with Fly Like Venus (flylikevenus.bandcamp).
