our second self-released, self-assembled, self-burned CDR album.

00:00 - like a chrome plated skull knob
04:11 - (you are) the worst person i've ever met
07:16 - growlight in the hallway
14:05 - soothe out the milch bender
20:00 - really cease the hardship stencil
22:02 - comprehensible jenkins
25:16 - firelight compliant
30:36 - old habits die harder than bruce willis
35:19 - so autosuggestible, so asleep
