brandon warren Accidentally discovered this artist while at a NYE party in Denton. Immediately, I was drawn to the music and was delighted to see a virtuoso solo performance....vocals, samples and keyboards all the while emanating a stage presence of simultaneous confidence and vulnerability. I can't wait to hear more out of this project.

Duality 01:32
what no longer serves you you may choose to bury inside of each of us lives a certain duality urgency and apathy someday the two you may choose to marry together forever make no apology when it comes to you by bedside by the mist of lilith's moonlight to be the most beautiful girl you've ever seen a vision of glitter from the air shimmering be the love be it fully be the body be it completely be the light be the reality be the doll

Hosiery 02:46
my feet are black i just walked back from hell and he had eyes that were all on me wish i could peel them off boil them in a pot do you think that we could do it like that and i am on my knees crawling to a distant light in my mind hi call me something like a monster rip these hosiery off of me sometimes sometimes and i'm like hey man eamon don't you know you're just like satan screaming begging daddy please won't you punish me baby's got a new dress rip it off of me got some new nails to make you bleed male attention makes me sick now give me more of it and i've never felt this way before but it's something new and it's something pure never felt this way before hi and i am on my knees crawling to a distant light in my mind hi call me something like a monster rip these hosiery off of me sometimes

i remember when i broke the mirror shards of silver pricking my finger glittering in the darkness of my midnight closet and it smells like spoiled milk in here but i stay put so i'd associate the feeling with expiration and i look up i've sleepwalked to the side walk of the first home i ever knew and i never felt immediacy thrust over me and i never laid on a cold mattress waiting, waiting i need to leave and suddenly i'm in the back of my car and there are sirens, sirens flashing red and blue and i'm not exactly sure but i have a feeling that i was heading right back to you you you i remember when i broke the mirror shards of silver pricking my finger glittering in the darkness of my midnight closet

21 01:51
like the non-consensual grinding of a greasy drunk at the club i tell reality to fuck off but i can still feel his sweaty palms groping me his bumpy arms all around me his beer breath down my spine his hard whiskey dick throbbing telling me to shut up telling me to listen telling me i'm gorgeous but i'm stupid telling me my identity won't cross over in the real world telling me ego is false lashes and a curling iron telling me the worst has yet to come for me i've learned that lesson we've been here before but you're still forcing shit down my throat you're still forcing shit down my throat you're still forcing shit down my throat but you never had to worry about surgeries or fucking pills or legal inquiries to justify your identity to a society who could give a shit less about you that sense of belonging is long since forgotten my insides are hollow you've already scraped me out you with the fat man fingers with the threatened cis straight male gaze with the celebrity politics and the dizzying suburban haze the obvious and unassuming quickly settling money handling faith obscuring call me something like a monster when you see me on fox 4 news a transsexual raped or beaten or killed but it was probably her fault because you could see her dick through her skirt and blow me off when i'm rotting six feet under in a suit and tie maybe i'll pray i'll at least get a hashtag

feel free to sink your teeth draw me out suck me clean he asked me once hey did you ever believe well i picked up the book of psalms cuz i always liked the words and i'd sing along the songs and i'd string along some chords but no sir i never once did see eyes up in the sky staring down at me and i'm living in fear that the south might rise again and all the children sing how great how great is our god how great is our god how great is our god how great is our god how great is our god
