We eat metal for breakfast We shit gasoline Every day since we were born all we've ever seen Is the trickle of our insides coming out All hail the end of the universe Don't know why anyone would want to stay For another day We touched the lightening Smoke came out our eyes We watched the oceans burn away The sky turned red, we birthed a crooked smile And there were volumes left to say All hail the end of the universe Don't know why anyone would want to stay For another day

When I crawl in to this corner unprotected When I speak in to the phone I’m disconnected I feel my skin all falling off And I hang on to just enough to bleed I reap the pain I sewed the seed I would sacrifice myself To find a place to call my home And I would sell my mortal soul To find the notes I’ll never know The paths I’ll never go The cards I’ll never show myself This serrated edge is sharp and seems suggestive But the bottle might be equally effective The circles underneath my eyes Grow deeper as I drive my friends away The things I’ve done The things I saw I would sacrifice myself To find a place to call my home And I would sell my mortal soul To find the notes I’ll never know The paths I’ll never go The cards I’ll never show myself

Nobody 02:48
Who would lock you out? Who would send you home? Who would stand you up? Who would tell you “no?” Nobody Who would break your heart? Who would say “goodbye?” Who would fuck you up? Who would make you cry? Nobody You’re not pretentious about it Do you acknowledge at all? The little people poised to catch your fall Who would knock you out? Who would leave you cold? Who would stab your back? Who would tell you “no?” Nobody You’re not pretentious about it Do you acknowledge at all? The little people poised to catch your fall You’re so pretty aren’t you? And all your doors are open Who will hold them for you? Who wouldn’t hold them all for you?

This is an end to words Falling from the page Their meanings forever lost Cause no one cared to save them We wrote the last ones down On loose leaf paper And freed them on the wind Cause no one cared to save them This is an end to words Falling from the page Their meanings forever lost Cause no one cared to save them No one cared at all

Spiders 04:54
The spiders in my head wish that I was dead They tell me every time I’m falling asleep The punch me in the head kick me in the shin Tell me what I did to deserve all this pain They say its too late But I will escape The voices in my brain tell me I’m insane But I don’t listen to a word that they say They tell me all the words that I should have said But they always wait until its too late They say its too late But I will escape I could never kill a spider with my hand Until what they did

Cheer Up 03:03
Hey We’ll find the time We’ll waste it all We’ll find a way Hey My feet are tired My head is too What about you? Hey My eyes are closed You’re in my arms You’re far away Hey I saw you smile We all fell down That’s where we stayed

about

I Finally Know What’s Good for Me was The Singular’s first recording. The band was originally conceived as a “lo-fi” band, and you can hear that concept played out a bit on this recording. While being a bit rough, this is front man James Pequignot’s most critically acclaimed piece of work to date. Evan Tachovsky, Pequignot’s former long time collaborator, played keys on this record even though he left the band before ever playing live. The name and artwork were inspired by an almost identical piece of art by Gretchen Grimm. She and James recreated the piece from scratch for the album artwork. James saw the piece at her art opening and believed the aesthetic matched that of the record he was making. The EP was recorded mostly live at Strangelove Recording where Pequignot worked at the time

about

The Singular Akron, Ohio

The Singular is a band that holds high the value of music as an experience and strives to make a good one for anyone who cares to listen. As a modest four piece rock band they produce a sound that can be described as cavernous and overwhelming. They triumph the art of storytelling through song, and always invite their audience along with them on a musical journey. ... more
