about

21st CENTURY AMERICAN ENTERTAINMENT by 185668232 is a product of 3 years producing and 7 years of composition. It forces uncomfortable topics into communicative consciousness through sociological-philosophy and poetry. Technilhlogical experimentation has been limited to this album due to a demonstration of self-discipline through integration and revaluation of the music industrialization era.

Track Name: sOLIDARITY
sOLIDARITY ISN'T WHAT YOU WILL LEARN IN THEIR SCHOOLS. iT'S A LIST OF WHAT YOU'VE DONE AND WHAT YOU'RE PLANNING TO DO. tHEY DON'T WANT TO LEARN ALL THREE OF YOUR MOODS. yOUR THOUGHTS SCARE THEM SO IT'S CENSORSHIP THAT THEY CHOOSE AND THEY LOSE YOU.

yOU CAN'T GET WHAT YOU WANT BY BEING YOUR SELF. yOU'RE TOO INTENSE WITH IT SO YOU NUMB DOWN. gIVING IN TO WHAT THEY WANT DOESN'T HELP SO IT'S CARELESSNESS FOR THEM WHEN YOU HAVE FIGURED IT OUT BUT YOU'RE TOO QUIET NOW SO I'M FILLING MY DOUBT AND I DON'T KNOW HOW TO TELL YOU OUT LOUD.

[but] wAIT.

cONVERSATION STARTED WITH YOUR FIRST WORDS. yOU KNEW WHAT YOU WANTED THEN BUT NOW CAN'T GET IT TO WORK. iT'S A LIFE AWAY CREATING SOMETHING TO SELL. yOU KNOW NOW IT IS A GAME AND IT'S A CEREAL. sO BE THANKFUL YOU ARE A TERRORIST, THEY'RE PEOPLE TOO - BRAINWASHED LIKE ME AND YOU.

wHAT YOU ARE SURE OF ONE DAY WILL BECOME DOUBT. iT'S A SWARM OF IDEAS TO BLOW ALL YOUR IDEAS AROUND. wATCH YOUR THOUGHTS COLLIDE THEN TUMBLE ON DOWN. yOU'RE BUILT BACK UP BUT NOT QUITE WHAT YOU'RE ABOUT. i AM HALF OF WHAT I THOUGH I THINK I'M ABOUT:

minimalism, anarchy, entertainment, absurdity, learning, love, noises, books, art, pain, loosing, trading, everything, nothing, sometimes i'm something.

i LOOK LIKE DOT DOT.
Track Name: UNDERSCORE
(put on headphones or listen to this in surround sound system for the words, y0h - [or] make them up)
Track Name: nOTHING (in Largo)
Use me, lay me down, don't fix me up, don't fix me up above a world so high like pins and needles some phantom guy. You can't take my doubt when your muse is my mind if nothing IS perfect.

Let demons pout in a quiet room all by them selves. Yeah, THAT must be Hell, being held against your Power To Will. They will pave the streets to become useless - the God damned theme - I should be wise not to think _ that nothing IS perfect.

It Is Incorporated.
Track Name: tOO mUCH dETAIL (RETEST)
too much detail blocked the light to our moon, covering a song, cannot keep the mood tuned. tingling, tingling my kundalini is pulsating. i hope that i am underground before i get to THAT age.

there's always peace in graveyards. intentions lie worthlessly between the science and art. but you play along to right all the wrongs while the classes play apart. i'm playing a part.

i know you never meant to care but sharing this nightmare only ever really seemed so fair. it is transition & becomes tradition that leads to fear.

praise the numb, the deaf, blind and dumb. they know not what they've done.
Track Name: Incipit Vita Nova (between end&begin)
"of light particles of light - THAT we ARE! make up matter take down space, brains hollograph minds encased. conscious metaction experience, energy of void. thinking unthinkable, enjoy nothingness, less is more. accepting loves relative exception. ions. photons. quirky quarks. iAM mocking social security. all my weight filling one shadow. static silhouetted soft stars soaked secret soul synesthesia sound scaping sleep objectively transient iconic hypochondria.

incipit vita nova."

Track Name: [ INCIPIT_VITA_NOVA_ ] (bonus track)
||: INCIPIT VITA NOVA - "Like bacteria we are. No matter what I think, I am a liar. If I were so honest and real I would be dead through knowledge of void. The incurable self made to suffer for nothingness. There is no should and should not have eyes for you. I am social security. Alyssa is more than one song I know it to be what you think instrumentationalized being is the marrow of my lungs stiffened to sweat-dust. Incipit Vita Nova = A New Beginning = (A New Ending)."
