    This is a new song which had nestled itself into a corner since last year, which came out to be finished recently. This may or may not be the final version...but enjoy. Any feedback I'd be grateful for.

    Instruments played: a notebook spiral, cardboard box, scissors, dan moi (vietnamese jaw harp), recorder, circular saw, sampled bolon, usual suspects such as drum kit, acoustic guitar/tonal resonation, and of course..the kitchen sink.


    Cardboard Girl

    You’re feeling flatter than ever, you keep seeing the same view
    there’s no need to forgive you for what you can’t see or don’t do
    it’s a simple thing, you get stained, you’re not as bright as you---
    ---would like to stand on your own legs without falling right over;
    scotch tape on your shoulders for when you can’t keep your head on

    It’s a simple fact you’re un-exact - you’re not as well constructed as you’d have.
    It’s a drastic pain if you believe those things, that you’re shorted one dimension and plain

    When you’re stuck between pages you think that no one will find you,
    there’s no reason to shame you for when you stay folded in two
    with just a turn of a page you blow away, you’re not at all impressed with how you weigh.

    If you could only see the galaxy - the universe under your tape and glue

    - feeding the seas with ink stained eyes - hole punched hearts and stapled down cries
    a sliver of you creased into dreams, unfold the dark of your wings -
    never a doll just made into chains, you’re free to sail to sulk it or scream -
    an army of glue guns and their kinks won’t stamp you down - you’ll fall
    you’ll fall, fall to peace - they’ll cut you to ribbons you’ll fall into pieces of sleep
