  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    I prefer alternate forms of CD packaging, but I had to make this version to be able to submit the album to radio stations, so if clear plastic is your thing, then you're in luck!! It's a pretty bare bones affair compared to the deluxe vinyl edition (it would have been pointless to attempt to shrink down the larger design, as you need a magnifying glass to see all the details even at 12 1/2 inches square), but in a pinch, it'll do ya.

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    An even MORE bare bones version of that soon-to-be-obsolete stalwart, the Compact Disc.

    Worth noting that when I burn, I burn ONLY with Taiyo-Yuden CD-R media, which sandwiches the sensitive, reflective silver layer of the disc between two protective layers of clear plastic. Perhaps you've never had the problem I began to notice all too frequently with my commercially bought CD's: if I happened to scrape off any of the label printed on the top of the disc, I could see that "hole" from the bottom! That would cause playback errors when the laser failed to reflect, and enough holes could prevent a disc from playing at all. This would happen because commercial CD's are produced via the cheapest method possible, with the reflective silver layer painted on top of the disc, protected only by whatever artwork was printed on top of that.

    So, just saying, with these, you won't ever have this problem (that you probably just learned existed). These CD's are built to last.

about

Gone gone gone, like the days when you could tell the cities by the colour of their smoke.

lyrics

Days of Yore


the cows are coming home for dinner
the cynic's circus slops their trough with memes
they'll never deign to touch the feed I pour for them again
they'll starve themselves awaiting greener dreams

the zeitgeist is in need of re-upholstering
we shabby dolls bereft of dopamine
a cop in every kitchen and a chef in every pot
all our streets paved o'er with baby bumps

we've made ourselves immune to revolution
Wittgenstein escaped in a balloon
our actions speak so loud that we can't hear the words no more
binary folklore
engraven on all fours
you've just enough blood left to paint the door

gone are the days of yore
gone are the days of yore
they won't be back no more
gone are the days of yore

the alphabet has fled for greener pastures
arithmetic performed with sticks and stones
design is unintelligent, the rapture wears no clothes
dirty laundry piles up around our bones

occupy the surface of the ocean
explain your declarations to the sea
as it is or as it was, so never shall it be
the bottle is the message, endlessly

the dictionary printed on a pinhead
the syllables are drawn by lottery
we fuel ourselves with fossils while we tunnel toward the core
there’s nothing left to burn
but that for which we yearn
a miracle in every metaphor

gone are the days of yore
gone are the days of yore
they won’t be back no more
gone are the days of yore

Na na na na na na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na

gone are the days of yore
you can curse till your throat is sore
and torture becomes a bore
but gone are the days of yore

you can pray till you soil the floor
till no lions are left to roar
but gone are the days of yore
they won't be back no more

gone are the days of yore
quoth the raven: nevermore
you’re crowing you know the score
but gone are the days of yore...
