about

Rabbit Rabbit Portland, Oregon

I retired from my previous job as Intergalactic Mercenary because I could no longer afford fuel for my giant killer robot. Nowadays I just sit in the cockpit and write weird music.

Track Name: Play
Don't think I don't know where this is going
I invented the curve balls you think you're throwing
yet you have the nerve to smile back cutely
you didn't really think you'd fooled me?

I dare you to push me a little bit more
you're nothing I haven't defeated before
you can't play a player, hon
I've played all the games before
and I've won

Ping-pong words back-and-forth, our conversations were never more than you saying something and me nodding my head
I was too taken by whatever it was you had to disagree
but I'm smarter now
I even broke my rule for you, the one that says
"never again trust another member of the human race"
now you're caught in your act, yet you keep it up
I swear, there's nothing worse than you

I dare you to lie to me a little bit more
there's nothing I haven't seen before
you can't kid a kidder, hon
I've played all these games before

Sacrifice doesn't count if you just take it right back
I know you know
that's not how it works, that's not how it works
if it's convenient then it's not love
Track Name: We're Not Friends
we're not friends
there'll be no more talk of how things used to be
you won't get
another chance to stick a knife in me
and I swear to God that you're not on my mind at any given time
we're not friends
and you won't see me again

no, I never wish I had someone here by my side
and I never think about how I'm sleeping alone every night
my mind never lingers over scenes of what might have been
I'll never feel a thing, and I'll never let you win

we're not friends
there'll be no more talk of how things used to be
you won't get
another chance to stick a knife in me
and I swear to God that you're not on my mind at any given time
we're not friends
and you won't see me again

I never miss the warmth of your hand on my face
and I never go out hoping I'll run into you someplace
I will die alone rather than ever be burned again
you're no lover, and you certainly aren't a friend

strike first, strike fast
that's the way to victory
you're the last one who will ever make a fool of me

we're not friends
there'll be no more talk of how things used to be...
Track Name: Not Human Enough
Electric guitars can break
rubber bands can snap
but I won't, I won't,
I'm constant like that
I'm a fill-in-the-blank
for whatever you need
you just happen to need
an enemy
I'm a body with no soul
a shadow, a black hole
there's nothing in me but everything
is drawn to me

What you want I should do?
So I'm not human enough for you?
And it's you who decides this
so I have to run away and hide like this?
it's not me who gets to choose
born to arbitrary rules
locked up and ridiculed
why be human just for you?

Why can't you just get over me?
Why can't you just grow up?
I spent too much time on you
I wasted all my time
Why can't you just go fxxx off?
Just fxxx off and die??
No one fxxxing likes you!

(everything you say adds to the meter
everything about you makes me wanna break things
I hate you more than anyone
worse, hate isn't the opposite of love
like it should be)

Can't you get a normal hobby?
Can't you get a normal hobby?
This has gone on too far!
We're all tired of hearing it!

Why can't you just get over me?
Why can't you just grow up?
I spent too much time on you
I wasted all my time
Why can't you just go fxxx off?
Just fxxx off and die??
No one fxxxing likes you!

really. really. really. really. really. really. really. really. really. really. really. really. really. really. really.

Why make it such a puzzle?)

Track Name: Fanfare for a Million Martyrs
I don't feel sorry for them, I feel sorry for me
and we who must now do without them
they're alright, they've just gone home
after doing what they came to do

I don't feel sorry for them, I feel sorry for me...

we'll see them again, we'll see them again
it's okay to miss them, but we'll see them again
we'll see them again
it's okay to miss them in the meantime
but we'll see them again
Track Name: The World Belongs to Us Gamers
The world belongs to us gamers
To us schemers and players
The world belongs to us gamers
To us schemers and players
Track Name: Neon Ain't Starlight
I've been
searching
for something
starry
all the while knowing it'll stay
seven inches beyond my reach
humans will always disappoint me somehow
endless waves of judging faces and thoughtless talking

add to the noise add to the noise add to the noise you just add to the noise
add to the noise add to the noise add to the noise you just add to the noise

breathless
running
and furious
flying
to ascend beyond myself
I turn my back on this faulty planet
but I could be dead and frozen in place
for all the good it does me now


add to the noise add to the noise add to the noise you just add to the noise
add to the noise add to the noise add to the noise you just add to the noise

don't be seduced by the neon lights
they're pretty colors but they're all just gas
Track Name: I'm Through With Love
I'm through with love
I'll never fall again
said adieu to love
don't ever call again
for I must have you or no one
and so I'm through with love

I've locked my heart
I'll keep my feelings there
and I've stocked my heart
with icy, frigid air
and I mean to care for no one
because I'm through with love

why did you lead me to think you could care?
you didn't need me, 'cause you have your share
of slaves around you to hound you and swear
on their deep emotion and devotion to you

goodye to spring
and all it meant to me
it will never bring
back things that used to be
for I must have you or no one
and so I'm through with love
Track Name: November
you would hurt me
and then I'd hurt you more
I wouldn't bat an eye
then cry at the notion
I swear that friends
like us will be the ones
to bring the world to its knees one day

you'd forgive me every time
take me back with open arms
though I'd far not visibly deserve it
and then that night
you said it wouldn't happen again
but it did
and I'd never been so happy

this is what
I left behind
along
with every other shred of myself
this is what
I turned my heels on
this sweet weird dynamic
it was driving me nuts

and now, barely being
and now, barely doing
cocooning for the barely now perceptible shift
this November,
it's finally gonna happen
I'll finally forgive you
I refuse to feel this way again

I can approach this new beginning
far more coolly than ever before
'cause I just remembered that being an adult
means you never get excited for anything anymore
