about

Now that the future has passed, let's examine the Error.
The Ethernet twilight, all transparent and terror,
Has rendered us ghosts, all us Twerps in the Zone.
We long for the Real Days when we walked on our own!
Back then, was my resolution to poor to be seen?
I wish you could hear me now, let me show you what I mean.
When we all went missing, you all never asked why –
The stakes are so low, but the standards are so high.

This album was written, programmed, recorded, and mixed over 3 years in both New Haven, CT and Albany, NY.
