Cry for Judas

the-sugoi-gatsby:

"This here album track, anyway, is called “Cry for Judas,” it is about survival but that’s kind of an oversimplification, it’s also about building a vehicle from the defeated pieces of the thing you survived and piloting that vehicle through the cosmos, it’s kind of complicated but people who know what I’m talking about will kind of intuitively get the idea and the rest of you will I hope be able to get a sense of it through the song."

Transcendental Youth

[A lot of] Transcendental Youth is about mental illness, severe sort of severe depression when you don’t leave your house. And I think pretty often when you enter into that sort of mindset, you know when you really are so genuinely depressed that you sort of can’t see past your door, I think it’s pretty common to go: “God, I hate this place, I hate this place!” I don’t think a lot of people who are very depressed have a lot of love for their surroundings and, for me anyway, in my most depressed times I always just hate the town I’m in. I blame it. I mean when I lived in Portland for nine months, I was profoundly depressed and boy did I hate Portland. I just blamed Portland for everything. The weather, you know. So that’s what that’s about. That feeling of when you are struggling. How you tend to hate where you are.

Aesop Rock
Coffee (feat. John Darnielle)

I crawled down to the basement
When the weather got cold
Like a lost lamb returning to the fold
And when the outside world recedes from view
It’s just a year’s supply of make-up
And memories of you
1967 Colt 45holding back the vampires
Keeping me alive
There’s an envelope with some cash in it
Out by the front door
This is what they make you take the medication for

Answering the Phone

"Maybe I didn’t get enough milk when I was a baby/Maybe I never learned the value of a penny/Maybe I listened to that first Black Sabbath album, the one with the witch on the front, one time too many/But I think something wrong with me/I think something’s wrong with me/I think something’s glued down wrong permanently"
