Use Headphones.

Written, recorded and mixed consecutively between the months of March and April 2013 around midnight to 6 a.m in Valencia, Ca by Gerry Green.

Dedicated to the magnificent Dave Schwem aka CC Archer. I will see you again someday and we will get drunk and you can tell me how much this record sucked.

Wonderfully mastered by the great Jesse Mangum at The Glow Studios in Athens, Ga..

Art work made by the brilliant Lauren Barfield aka Lauren On The Internet. Please peep her awesomeness here...

Samples on "Blotted" made possible by Shane Greenberg and friends drunkenly singing yellow submarine and war pigs, recorded to tape on Louie Kovics tape recorder.

Children yelling the word madness on "Les Incompetent" made possible by my little sister gracie and her friends.

Noise on "Toe Marrow (Pearls Before Swine)" courtesy of Shane and I drunk talking and stumbling.

on the way back to los angeles from austin texas after sxsw 2013 i stopped at a gas station somewhere outside of el paso. the gas station itself was closed so i decided to piss behind this giant storage unit. it was very dark and i couldn’t make out too much, but noticed in front of me as i was peeing there was something scribbled on the storage unit. i snapped my lighter to see what it said and read the words King Baby. after instantly falling in love with how it was scribbled/the phrase itself i returned to los angeles a day later to begin recording the 12 songs that would become my new record, King Baby, consecutively over the next month. hope you enjoy.

Track Name: King Baby: A Sacrifice Of Sound For The Womb
sinned soul

Track Name: Turnt Nothing/Solo For CC
climbing high
clenched to hide
skeleton
collides


blue hued bites
dead as night
crushed inside
the light



fair skinned eyes
shocked and tried
ghosts arise
tonight
ghosts arise
tonight


colored heat!
look at me!
who's to beat?
who's to dive?



minced as meat
trite belief
lie to me
she sighs
lie to me
she sighs
make believe
I'm alright

I'm alive
I'm alive
I'm alive
Track Name: I Pity The Fool
get your hand out of my face
minds been trying to leave this place for sometime
arrives in warmth with a spook at my window
departing with a head in the sand

as long as you know which way to go
why would i follow?


meet atop the crumbling wake
meet where the sun shed its face for the first time
a landing spat out at the end of a tunnel
stand silently with me there

if you know not which way to go
what would i follow?


force fed a copy of withstanding fences
among them are two of us dancing in fashions
alone
and slow
alone
and slow

then whom among you are rightfully passing
a hat to the next for a pitying chance just to feel
at home
to feel
your own belligerent

hate!
hate!
hate!


get your hand out of my face
minds been trying to leave this place for sometime
Track Name: Cockroach Mosaic
feelings got my feet tied into knots
crossed eyes, tongues split, passed times i forgot
let go how could i move my bones further from yours
noose is so snug so warm in come the flies

and they buzz around my head
dark ghosts surround my bed
fingers point off instead
misleading all directions in


slow down my guts meet mud and i smile
took two to the head medicine turned me back to a child
clockwork spirals slowly into the wall
egos spit smug make men grow ten times tall


my brain it starts to shrink
and light bends as i begin to think
oh what a fucking world
oh what a fucking world


no ones got anything to hide
but i do
Track Name: Momentary Lull
(find me inside)
(fright singing)
Track Name: Fetus Flowers: Momentary Pettiness
flowers to the children
flowers to the children
feed us to the kindred
fetus to the kindred
flowers to the children
flowers to the children
feed us to the kindred
fetus to the kindred
flowers to the children
flowers to the children
flowers to the children
flowers to the children

i focus my anger
i focus my anger
spent time just to waste it
spent time just to waste it
theres a lot that i miss
theres a lot that i miss
theres a lot that i miss
theres a lot that i miss
I've seen no bright future
i just sleep those skies away
so goodnight
goodnight

What am I doing here?

What am I doing here?
Waiting on flesh to appear?

MADNESS

Track Name: 43-5
cloaked inside the storm
a worn head fine between rinds
like flesh and unlike bone
breaking skin with a teasing kind

layers of empty smiles
you mean nothing to me
i see the ghost it haunts you
and brings you to your knees

a fault line crossed
eruptions begin
bombs they go off
punishment met by sin

to feel happy

YOURE NOT FREE

loose and awfully close
given hands held swift & tight
spent fire bent on a crook
tempered might lies inside

i know its hard to see
when you're drunk off favored light
your fear in discovering
that alls lost inside your mind

forced entry
to a darkened binge
celebrations false
the party begins
like a feather bought
from birds lost in wind
a cycle starts
and it never ends

to keep happy

Track Name: Blotted
come to see the fair fed conquering
ravaged reeling rotten little queen
she balances her problems inaccurately
poisoning and dangerously she sees

lucrative movements: decapitation
squirrel like patience: drugged relaxation

I'm blotted I've known i am not much
dictated I've known by blistering muck
collaged and murdered me into a rut
eyes peeled back waiting on someone
looose I act as a nooose
looose i act as the nooose
Track Name: Rosy (To Throw You Off)
set apart as fire
from a drenched and ugly sheen
loose from quiet might
worn down cheap as a human being

cut sharp and dry
cut sharp and dry
my bones
the fears collide
no sinning tides
just bones

this velvet wax melts nice
your hair lays soft inside its steam
do me right this time
I am too wrecked to kindly leave

sailed home said i
sailed home said i
so long
its cold said i
my eyes on ice
so long

broken down and beat
man i said I've got no fight
desired as a king
lost through pity's silent sigh

alone said i
alone said i
move on
alone said i
alone said i
go home

for the turnings quick
with lack of life
inside a number
forged in strife
the human kind
as passer by's
who look at nothing


its been a long long night
i think ill call it quits right here
the beaten path on high
its holy moment dark and seared

so long goodbye
so long goodbye
its all gone now
so long goodbye
to look back and cry
theres no point now

so let it go.
