jacob pereira The bad history side... So good. I haven't even listened to the other side yet. But it's was worth it just for that side. Favorite track: 3a.Staring At My Hands.

Ethan Miller The Bad History Month side is different from any other release I've heard from Jeff. The tongue-in-cheek humor and Slinty sprawling rock arrangements are gone, replaced with more emphasis on the songwriting. It hasn't done anything to shake my belief that Jeff Meff is the greatest living songwriter. The Dust side was dark and slow and plodding and cynical and it definitely encouraged me to check out their most recent full length. Favorite track: 3a.Staring At My Hands.

Track Name: Bad History Month - 3a.Staring At My Hands
Inevitably all my molecules dissolved and then my problems were all resolved.
I spent a lifetime deciding which way I should go and now that I'm gone I finally know:

I know that I have always been exactly what I'm supposed to be, nothing more or less than Grandpas answer to mortality.

Nervous outside of a bar, I focus on a single star until it disappears.
Reaching for the comfort of just how small things are.

Imagination thinks of itself as Reality, but it just imagines itself to be.
The greatest use I ever found for mine is traveling time by turning myself into the Sea. (of Infinity)

Staring at my hands and picturing them decomposing,
feeling my existence as a ripple on an endless ocean,
not even a drop,
I will take no substance with me when I'm gone.
Because my body is the same as the Sea,
and this consciousness I think of as "Me" is nothing more than
the imagined separation between things.

Dying while you're still alive,
suddenly you've opened your eyes,
it's only when you realize that you're going Nowhere that you finally arrive.

I have seen my own death and it made me breathe easy.
