about

"Having listened to Richard Ringer's last four albums and gained slivers of insight into where he was a mere seven years ago—a kid whom few likely understood due to force of his creativity and weird energy…and his inevitable flight from the repressive rural Midwest into the vibrant-but-cruel underground of New York’s music scene…the album is appropriately named."

Track Name: Creepster Freakster
How the hell did I get so old?
and how the hell did this happen?
my skin, my bones
full of creases and groans,
I always knew this would happen
look in the mountain stream...

and what do you find biological slime
and how it swarms and it multiplys
breathe it inside and then you die and now your something to find
O what do you find biological slime
and how it swarms and it multiplys
breathe in a sigh and then you die and now your something to find
Well an old lady, she told me maybe I would
grow up
and if I made it, that far jaded, I'd never
get love

If I looked in the West coast
in the east coast
in the midwest
if I looked in antartica or the north pole
or the south pole what would I vest?
cause I'm a creepster freakster I don't need you neither
I'm a creepster freakster I don't need you neither
I'm a creepster freakster I don't need you neither
I'm a creepster freakster
I don't need you
and you don't need me
I don't need you
and you dont want me
and I dont need you
and you don't want me anyway...
Track Name: Jacob's Revenge
When you don't know where to go but you know thats what you do
well you don't know where to go but you know thats what you do
and as Jacob rises straight- down from the ground he will find his revenge to be found
to be found
to be found
today
Track Name: Opera no. 13
And do you remember
oh there in Florida
when that strange feeling came over me?
and well you know, I felt nothing for ya
but oh my god is that envy?
O for the old lady,
lying in her bed,
and well maybe
she is definitly dead
and I don't wana stay,
I just wana come back
but I guess I've gotta stay put
just to earn my ticket

and o do you remember the space opera?
and o do you remember the space opera?
yeah cause I sure dont
yeah and I sure dont

They're gonna wrap me in a suit
and then I'll go
and take the underground route
before you know
and would you belive-
o what they told me to bring
and how they taught me to recieve
and o
would you belive
in the number 13
put me on the shelf
far away from 1 after 12
and oh my morine
you know I belive you cursed me
but man she could sing...
just like the number 13...

So many wings in the skies!
the skies!
Petrified
Passerbys
Paralyzed
Lost in you eyes!
I am not-
I am not-
Suprised!
Suprised!
I am not-
I am not-
Suprised!
Suprised!

I wish I had control
Track Name: Abusive Musive
Well your spinning and you're laughing
and you're laughing and you're spinning
the white widow is winning
and no you're not fat
you're furthest from it
so just finish all of that

oh and I like you
I like you
you can be my muse
cause I like you

And you wrote:
"if you love something then just give it away"
but I don't, really love ya
I just kind of like you enough to try and get you to stay

And then on the phone
is he calling you home?
well you'd better get runnin to him
well you disapear
and then show up here
with my brand new label as you're friend
is that something that you
had to do
so you dont feel so much like a prostitute?
well you you hate yourself
you've told me a million times
who the hell is this guy?
just someone who treats you like shit
and pays your rent

Well I hate you
yeah I hate you
you can be my muse
cause I hate you

well you're spinning
and you're laughing
somewhere in New Jersey
And I'm on some floor in Ohio
Your yelling at some guy
you've had to much to drink
and I'll drunkenly scream at some girl too

but hey what's new?
I wish she was you...
I miss you...
you can be my muse...
Track Name: Jesus Speak
Jesus
Jesus
is the answer
Jesus
Jesus
like a cancer
Track Name: Razor Blades
An embittered realist reeling
former pacifist healing
cause we're all just facists in our deep dark hearts!

You say o me o my
when the lover you love says just don't try
cause you know you wont get to far!

So you go out lookin for answers
and you embark on your little treck
from the gates of mars to heck to a mountain stream

but o what do you find?
the earth heats up and then rewinds
so you can see the ghost of water but they just call it steam

How can I explain-
the wonder in my name-
and o the secrets that hide in yours too!
So much beauty in the skies
when you look up don't wonder why
belive theirs more than black behind the blue!
and when you wake up,
I'll be waiting for you
Track Name: Lullaby For Someone I Don't Know Anymore
And o your mother how she kisses the brim
of a glass so big it's where fish could swim
and how you wonder if she cares anymore
or if she could love him like she did before
in the picture
on the mantle
illuminated
by a candle
phony smiles start to fade
as the wick it burns away

And o your father how his lifes so impossible
he went to fight for a dinosoar fossile
that you could put in your car
and make it go so far away from your mother
with the glass
and your brother how he kicked your ass
when you- tried to leave
cause no one get's out in one piece

And then one night before I cleaned out a bank
you called me on the phone and you told me you loved me
I once said "I love you" as a kid
to a girl with the same
hair and skin of me
but you look differen't
you look itallian
you look just like
the girl version
of my best friend
the one whose razor blades but still ace of spades in the end
in the end

and then
now you're my best friend
my best friend

and then
and then

so you write letters and you write songs
and you write poetry and you right wrongs
but you left out the part with our corpses in the road
and our bodies are the same just in a different place
and the corpses are the corpses of our souls
so you write letters and you right wrongs
and you write poetry and you write songs
but you left out the part with our corpses in the road
and our bodies are the same just in a different place
and the corpses are the corpses of our souls

Well I'm just thinkin then I'm just singin about
monkeys in spaceships!
Intelligent enough to push a button and brave enough to die!
O I'm just thinkin then I'm just singin about
monkeys in spaceships!
Intelligent enough to push a button and brave enough to die!

And then theirs me
me as I'll ever be.
Well take your pills and wash em' down with a drink.
I am more of a whore than you think.
Existence is weird and sex makes everything strange.
If you wana know more, turn the page.
Or go to sleep.
Just go to sleep-
and when you arise...
sink deep,
into your own
reality
you know in mine,
you're a queen.
Track Name: The Amazing Beautiful Girl
She's the amazing beautiful girl
too bad she's two thousand years behind
She's the amazing beautiful girl
too bad she's two thousand years behind

Should I listen to my heart or should I listen to the man?
Oh who'm I kidding I'm no lover I'm no poet.
She wants to rule the world I can see it in her eyes
All languantly hidden, behind her disguise

And all this illness just makes me sick
O how fame is loves cheap gimmick
first you mountain breeze and then you mountain freeze
and then you find out just what you need

too bad she's two thousand years behind
years behind
too bad she's two thousand years behind
years behind
too bad she's two thousand years behind
years behind
too bad she's two thousand years behind
years behind
too bad she's two thousand years behind
Track Name: Maybe I Was Made
And in times dark and stoic
I will try and be melodic
I will burn up all my insense
I will drink all my tea
who is this man sitting here?
cause he's not me.

And people that I don't want to think about
telling me my midwest sound
git instead of get
I don't understand
I can't comprehend

And maybe I was made to die alone
Well maybe I was made to die alone
I hope I was to live with nothing
I was made to live with nothing
o o o o
whoaooo
ao o o o ah ah aha hah aha
cause I've got nothing
I've got nothing
Track Name: Freego (Feat. Emily Frembgen)
My parents drink alot so I'll drink alot too.
I saw a monster movie it reminded me of you-
The way the little girl screamed reminded me of me
and the way the monster tore her to shreds reminded me of the way we used to be.

Stroke my fragile ego cause the world says that I'm not a notable-
individual in the annexs of history
Are you ever afraid that you might die and maybe that might not be the worst thing that could happen to your life?
O preacher man could you sing me a song-
about the freckles on my skin representing wrong
and is all my sin - my poverty, just a reflection
of the lords disaproval for me?
Even though he said, he didn't have a place to rest his head
and the mighty kingdom of Israel is dead.
well world war one you had your fun-
and world war well I'm in love with you-
and world war three yeah well your something to see yeah
you're something to see yeah
you're something to see yeah

Stroke my fragile ego cause the world says that I'm not a notable-
individual in the annexs of history
Are you ever afraid that you might die and maybe that might not be the worst thing that could happen to your life?
Track Name: Flying Ghost
I wish the last song, could be the best song
but I fear that it's not.
The people who hear it,
will hate it.
Cause it's not what they want.

Cause this is not about a girl-
it's about me!
Oh the irony...
That's just what I said-
when I was faking it.

So father why'd you leave me?
And mother why'd you stay?
Answers to questions like that
don't really matter to anyone else anyway.
Oh I wish that I could write a song that I didn't mean!
Or at least one without so much self fulfilling prophecy!
Well you dont know who you are and I don't know me-
so why did we ever feel safe using the word we?

And I knew I loved you,
when all I wanted to do
was starve inside a car beside you.
And I'm tired of this game and I don't want to win.
I'd trade every song I ever wrote for a Jack or a Finn.
Cause once we have the fame o we know ourselves,
we'll just hate everything and want to be somebody else.
We're only soul mates some of the time
and maybe thats what works the most.
It could have been a dream
or a feeling
or just a sick hope
but in the beauty of a body in the mirror
I swear I saw a flying ghost

FLY GHOST

EITHER WAY WE'LL ALL JUST BE DEFEATED
EITHER WAY OUR BODIES WILL JUST DISSAPEAR
