my demons don’t have me i have them
thoughts that consume me I destroy them
thank god we’re alive and well
to all who oppose


i give them hell


i am my own master
i am the walking disaster
the feminine hurricane
the one who made you insane

i’ll give you hell
taught you well

hold your tongue when I’m around
hold your breath and hit the ground
hold my hand when safe and sound


I’ll give you hell
hoooo yeah
i’ll give you
hooooo yeah

all my
hoooo yeah

i’ll give you something to cry about

it’s still 420 on the west coast so why not here’s a song that was originally written for the new Julia Brown album “An abundance of strawberries” way, way back. i wrote it probably last april or may & this version of it was recorded around june around when i finally started work on the album forreal. i really like it but i don’t feel like it has any place on the record anymore and things have changed so much since we started. it was going to be the opening track. it never was named, originally being called “opening” and now being called “old opening”. i still really like this song. it just has no home. here are the lyrics

lying flat on my back next to you in the grass

we skipped class to hang out while your friends smoked crack, we got high in their house

i felt cold when i looked at the sun

& that was our first kiss

it almost broke my heart 

because we both knew what would tear us apart

also shout out to ap cause new art!

I’ve been opening every show like this lately. It’s a tribute to Sam Ray’s project Heroin Party.

Here in the dark I am strong
I beat my fists against your chest
and reshape your bones to fit my needs
and I’m not going to eat again
because food only brings me pain
I am going to be beautiful
My body will float above my bed held there with a rope
and like some summoning ritual
from your childhood
you will trace your fingers around each of my ribs
and you wont be able to look me in the eye for weeks

hey all it’s sam. i haven’t posted anything in like years on this blog because i’ve been busy working on a handful of projects (including at least one full length album thats been in the works for over a year) i dont wanna just post stuff here i dont deem worth keeping for a record, but i dont end up with a lot of demos either usually cause so much of my writing process is at this point tied up in recording too. i wanted to post a song though that i do have a true ‘demo’ of i guess since i dont know if it will be part of any album or what to do with the real recording. right now i just have this reel to reel demo with live guitar and vocals that warren helped me record while i’ve been staying at his place in bk. i dont really have a title for it yet and iv’e been calling it ‘urgency’ and it  parallels a song on the orchid tapes compilation he’s releasing soon. it’s an important song to me but i’ve been at a loss for a while what to do with it and while i try and figure it out i’d like to share this live version. 

you can feel its bloom

in a car at night in june

or on a roof 

feel wind blow through

dark spots appear where things once were clear

if the world doesn’t start being good to us soon

i swear i might disappear 

but why should the world be good to me?

have i ever been good to the world

i feel some urgency

pressing hard on me

to tell everyone 

sometimes love’s not enough

A work in progress. again. recorded on an ipad in the dark. during a waxing crescent moon.

Lyrics:

Your love leads me to Cliffs
I should be used to this
but I’m so fucking naive

Silence sends me to that edge
I should have stayed in bed
but I thought it was a dream

and this why we can’t have nice things
and this is why we destroy everything
and this is why we prolong the suffering

more and more

intimacy looks like hate
all the bruises fade
but the feelings stay the same

maybe one day you’ll fly free
but you’re ill like me
and someones clipped your wings

and this is why you’re always fallings
and this is why it wont stop hurting
and this how you prolong your suffering

more and more

we all want someone there
to show they care
but where the hell were you?

birds circle over my head
I wish I were dead
and I wish you were too

this is why we can’t have nice things
this is why I’ve destroyed my being
and this how you prolong the suffering

more and more

Hi this is Mathew Lee Cothran.

I’m posting a track from my good friend’s album “college rock”  his name is william starr busbee and he has been monumentally influential to me in my own work.

he is in my opinion one of the greatest living songwriters.

I am beyond excited to see this album released on my favorite label of all time orchid tapes.

Check it out, it’s fucking great.
