about

Written and originally performed by Ceschi (New Haven, Connecticut) and Factor Chandelier (Saskatoon, Canada). Ceschi and I had many mutual friends over the years when I worked at the Milestone Club in Charlotte, NC, but somehow we kept missing each other. I believe Brock who was always on the road with Astronautalis got ahold of my album and passed it along to Ceschi at some point. When we finally met it was obvious that we were kindred spirits and would be lifelong friends. He took me on my first tour in Europe. Put out a collaborative record I did with my friend Justin Aswell on his Fake Four label. We've collaborated musically together, performed countless shows alongside each other, and he seems to take every opportunity he has to point people toward my work. He is one of my favorite artists and has been one of my greatest supporters and most cherished friends. I knew I wanted to include a song of his on this, but there were many that came to mind, and it was difficult to choose. I started working on 'Say Something' but then decided to try something that didn't seem such an obvious track for me to cover. This song kept getting stuck in my head so I gave it a try and was very happy with the results. I love the stark and bleak beauty of it.

lyrics

Make it feel better
Make it heal
Make it end please
You could make it feel so good
Make it cotton candy
Oxycontin candy

I want you to know right now
I want you to know right now
I want you, I want you
I want you more right now
I want you, I want you
Maybe more than ever

Taste heaven inside of you
By the time I’m empty and quiet
I realize what love can do
It can make even tame dogs violent
Stare you in the face and laugh
Take away your pain then bring it back
Kiss you on the lips so fast
Revert you to a kid then stab your back
Told me you were searching for a god
Sounded like you were giving up
We can watch our bodies fall apart
They can call it modern art
No more need for questions
All the answers packaged
In a pretty pink form
A pretty red form
In some form…

I want you to know right now
I want you to know right now
I want you, I want you
I want you more right now
I want you, I want you
Maybe more than ever

Papi hid you in the top drawer
With the cottons and the stick pins
Half dead man in the living room
We were all born victims
That don’t mean shit
Nothing’s prettier to any human being
Than this meaningless existence
Full of wish after wish after wish after wish after…
Guts all scattered on the floor
Picasso
Injured bird in your palm
We will all be fossils
But for now let’s feel less awful
Tread lightly and walk slow
That’s the gospel
That’s the gospel
That’s the god that…

I want you to know right now
I want you to know right now
I want you, I want you
I want you more right now
I want you, I want you
I want you more right now
