"Dead Is Better Than Pink" Is it just the way it goes? In a cave with basketballs Follow all my best friends home I am not the way they were Bathtub drawn too warm Drizzle lavender and cry out no more
2.
"kill myself out of courtesy (ft. bipolarfairy)" Fear is struck into all stupid men Pain, pain, pain, pain, pain Just keep on moving in So that the focus wanes I can't fucking think I am the punished Just for nothing Blood runs down the walls of pleasure Fear is struck into all stupid men It was all in my head Homegirl called the cops Placed in an institution where they fucked with my thoughts How did this start, I bet you're dying to know When I was first fucked Made to be a freak show He doped me up Fucked me up I woke up the next day Blood on my legs Masochistic little girl (Hurts her)self for kicks Kawaii scars on her wrists Hits herself with her fists Baby girl, now hard Can't sort out her thoughts She fucks to feel better Fills her sadness with cock Freeky words inside a light beam Chanted phrases of our god, she Made decisions on a nightly Cruise to where a planet twice seen Everlasting on a pike dream She be sparkled and divining Messages of Luna's teaching Spell bombs out to where we party
3.
"When I Hessage Her From Hy Hirror" Limited a warranty And found yourself in the parlor Tomba jace on with your grace on Save your face on a mask it Injured basket, honey wax-kit Didn't mind it, Whiiiskey You a bad bitch cause you spelled it Turned a frog into a Greek Do you see these crowded streets Full of beings who need to eat Living for that Socrates Or merriment to choose to be A world that only we can see Silent and buried deep Into a cloud like deathly sleep If only I could choose to leap Away from the polarity Daring me to try alchemy Sonic richment of souls to drink
4.
"What A Man Should B C D (ft. jaketyman & Glue Emcee)" (Suddenly she's accused of witchcraft, killing babies, uhm At the behest of Satan) Yesus, easus, thesis, thosis When I get to speaking, you will believe I got doses And if I get to sneaking, you will be sneezing and choking Easy how I breezy and this hindu potion, all day It is The Bay, where I lay most everyone of these days Yee cuddy Greenback legacy Toaster begins to rot and Drop the feeling out to space I know that you're only gay Cuz Jesus made you that way Purple jewels and dots on Cali streets we smokin' bowls At meet and greets Talkin' TV cuz that's neat Tidy tarot Dad kill and beat Sweet ride Derek! (Great ride Derek! Really nice! Very beautiful ride Derek! Seriously, um... Great ride. Derek, thank you. Thank you)
5.
"Ekans Express (ft. Yung Daplord) / People With Good Features Do Bad Things" Newspaper in my hand I'm a new person with new perspectives Gazing to my left And I can hurdle through The next objective Living like a man My woman sets me down The path of reason I tell her to turn right There's a pokestop With an Ekans chilling Me N my niqqaz, we run Me N my niqqaz (What's your name? John What's your real name John? ) Paraplegic Into my music Nar-cis-cis-sistic Focused on fixing Nothing existent Only my demons Crawling like feelings Up and down meanings Lying to me and I hope I believe it (coming to get me) They coming to get me

"Aggro-Emotional Beings Forced Into Men's Bodies - write spells, not songs" Worshiping the Goddess or nada Phillip is screwing up karma As individual Ramas are all watching and applauding For every DNA Kata The mark of every savanah A sphinx to catalogue knowledge Remembering all our fathers Some more alien papas Or maybe all are just fossils Disintegrating in lava Is there a way to applaud them Or should we be found in new skin? She holds her hand quietly Just a slap of reality With the telling of a kiss What is a man or a woman, but the feelings we give Or get I do Love it I do Love it We all have a lot We all have a lot we hide Worshiping the Goddess or nada Phillip is screwing up karma As individual Ramas are all watching and applauding For every DNA Kata The mark of every savanah A sphinx to catalogue knowledge Remembering all our fathers Some more alien papas Or maybe all are just fossils Disintegrating in lava Is there a way to applaud them Or should we be found in new skin?

"Big Alphabet Soup Of Dysfunction After" Exponential Colorado In the snow, never bottled Ending words, 'To live tomorrow' Hate your body Live in sorrow Take a pill to feel legato Entry to a fictionado Or the happy creepy motto: Beauty is my favorite hollow Spot inside my chest Though tattooed Mary had a... Little Baby I call him crazy He call him Jeezy Exponential Colorado In the snow you never bottled ending words To live tomorrow, hate your body, live in sorrow Take a pill to feel legato entry to a fictionado Or the happy Creeping motto beauty is my favorite hollow Spot inside my chest, though Tattooed (Some god enlighten me Am I a girl Am I a boy Am I just worthless) You ate the Renaissance A pretty injured piccolo Not a Dragon Ball Zero Just an instrumental he know A freckled desperado Like inspiration's motto Or where the end meets new hope A dance is soon to follow You know that I know that you know That I know that you know that I know that you know Am I a girl? I know that you Know that I know that you Know that I Know that you Know that I know that you know No, no

A DOUBLE THROWBACK SUB-RELEASE
jdgfdf + BAEN-olithic

jdgfdf has been regarded as a fav EP over the years and held up as a rep of our definitive sound. 808+VOX+DRM . Had to keep this safe with y'all.

As for BAEN-olithic... this refurbished throwback is the combination of BAEN, Bipolarfairy and Neolithic (except one song left behind on Neolithic with intent to re-record for a near-future studio album)


"The bane of Bae = Baen, the last trim off 4ourIVer as we prepare for it's release. But do not consider this a random assortment of B-sides. Baen's tracks all contain the very same signature struggle with ego, identity, and belonging. This leaves the victorious material to our fourth self-titled album; 4ourIVer drops in less than a week on 1/1/2017. "
-Vantana Row (about BAEN, December 29, 2016)

"We really didn't think Neolithic was going to be anything. We thought it was going to be super b-side whateverness, but it surprised us with how good it feels." -Volly (about Neolithic, March 6, 2017)
"This is the first album recorded with van-drums (two-piece kit recorded in the van). The van-drum sound hasn't refined much at this point, but Neolithic was the necessary platform for experimenting with it." -Jamey (about Neolithic, March 6, 2017)

"This album is based on real shit, people get sexually assaulted regularly and sometimes they don't recover. If you ever need a friend to talk to, you can hit us up on instagram. @vantanarow If you're hurting please don't hurt alone. Rest In Power Moose" -Volly (about Bipolarfairy, November 21, 2018)


BAEN-olithic is currently sent exclusively to Instagram music, TikTok, and y'alls subscriber-collection here on Bandcamp
BUT
Wouldn't it be random if in 2023 or something, we just refilmed new music videos for all these songs, manufactured an XCD (fictional new music medium made available in 2022) and toured on only BAEN-olithic songs (with some requested oldies). ? Like tf did u come up with that idea? Just sounded fun..... And honestly, I think anyone would agree: we have enough songs that, doing this would be as refreshing as it would be unexpected.



This album is dedicated to Moose aka bipolarfairy - we miss u
