Luis Misiara There's only one Matt Lebofsky and we're all the more lucky for it! Favorite track: Boring Origin Story.

Sven B. Schreiber Matt Lebofsky's Rhodes piano is out of tune! Or maybe he's experimenting with alternative tunings... well, I guess, it's the latter, since the entire album is full of experiments and surprises, as usual. If you go for his music, and bought the entire catalog already, you might want to check out "Bodies Floating Ashore", "Mumble & Peg", "miRthkon", and a couple of other projects he is or was involved in. A lot of fun awaiting you there! Favorite track: French Canadian Press.

What the hell are you doing here? With your magnificent colors And your fancy songs Your existence insults me - it mocks me And takes me away to a place On the other side Of our cosmic arrangement You’re a dinosaur - You’re a turkey You’re a marvel of evolution But who cares? And our time is up and our time is up... And our time is up and our time is up... I’m a fighter - you’re a spider I’m a winner - you beginner I know each way from Z to A I reach higher - you bend wire And our time is up and our time is up... And our time is up and our time is up...

We feebles are the same Can’t resist the old game The earth quakes you And makes you question your competence I write it down Who writes things down anymore? Anymore? Anymore? Anymore? Time is fleeting - we all know this No competing - ignorance bliss Lay down my head - night is awake Speaking in words I forgot Or never heard - my education failed me Resting my back broken again Twisted in ways unyouthful Losing the herd My hope for healing fades away

There’s an empty space Right behind my face Where dreams used to be But now it’s only me Eyes.. eyes.. eyes.. eyes..

Suburban upbringing Upstate New York Basic comfort Neither poor nor stupid upper class Normal parents still married All my siblings got along How could it be art spews from me? Am I hiding bodies? Where to begin No religion no sin No big loss no win My origin Push in the pin All the places I've been And no longer in My origin No genius Just a lot of practice Honing the craft a long time Average grades Drama free social life I pushed the boundaries only when I had to Well regarded Uncompilicated Just leave me alone I'm trying to eat my lunch How could it be I have insight? Ask yourself - flee or fight? Where to begin No religion no sin No big loss no win My origin Push in the pin All the places I've been And no longer in My origin Talk to my kin It's a positive din I maxed out the min My origin This loony bin Is a kick in the shin So why must you spin My origin

Where did he go? Where am I? And who are they? Who are they? Who are they? Will I return? What is home? And what's goodbye? What's goodbye? What's goodbye? Will I stay? Or will I fly?

Press the point on my back Push it through I'm not afraid to show you what these buttons do Feel the jolt ripping down to that nook I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned... You can be very best much like me Tense and release as guts will rot internally Stand up straight Doing great Read the book I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned...
