972 - MP3

This is what I do when I’m sick and stuck inside for two and a half days: make weird music on my iPad.

The tracks aren’t in perfect time. They were recorded independently, each in one take.

generate / life again by grahm sexton

grahm sexton - contaminated pieces of meat - 04 - generate / life again - MP3

I’m not a pianist. Or a violinist. But in 1995 under the alias grahm sexton I pretended to be.

I wrote and recorded this musical piece on a 4-track tape recorder in Des Moines, Iowa in a walk-in closet.

The vocals are mixed way down because I’ve always hated the sound of my voice.

Are there any parts of me
that you would care to see?
Unravel blueprints for my surgery,
reconstruct my fucking personality.

Shove aside my point of view,
disregard who I have to be.
Sorry I cannot live to
your expectations of me.

There is no chances in our hell
that you will control my body.
I can’t stand my hesitant apologies.
I never ever hear that you’re sorry.

My mind is not up for
a battle of custody.
Your ideals are my calamity.
I cannot pull apart the insanity.

My body is not up for
a round of your shooting gallery.

The clock hanging on my wall
is ticking away my life again.

Got half a pack of cigarettes
to last the rest of my life again.

Another dysfunctional relationship
to take away my life again.

There’s a gaping hole in daddy’s arm
to swallow up my life again.

The next flight leaving out of town
will hide the rest of my life again.

Memories of a careless past
will haunt the rest of my life again.

Again. Again.

That clock again.
That goddamn clock again.

That clock again.
That goddamn ticking again.

am i imagining the title “Synchronated Pieces of Meat”?

tcr! tcr! · Jan 19, 2017 at 7:24 am

The title of the album was Contaminated Pieces of Meat so you were close 😊

t:
a lesson in growing old. i won’t say gracefully ‘cuz i’m not doing that. i have that album around here somewhere (on CD) and i would have swore it was “Synchronated”. was it momentarily or just a few rare copies or i’m completely outta my tree? i already know the answer. i remember “getting it”; knowing without really knowing what synchronated pieces meant for cyring out loud. i can’t imagine how many times i’ve thought about it, and always knew those pieces of meat were synchronated. i did not expect this answer. i’m going to be in seclusion until 9:30.

ok, im out early.

There’s a very, very good chance that the original, original version was titled Synchronated.

It’s ringing a bell but I can’t recall exactly. Growing old and all. πŸ€•πŸ˜‰

Back in the late-ish 90s I met this somewhat homeless girl outside my apartment. She asked me if I could give her a ride up to the store and since it was on my way, sure no problem. She talked the entire ten minute trip, showed me page after page of thoughts she had written down. It was almost overwhelming — the sheer amount of creative lunacy she’d come up with.

So the next day she was again outside my apartment when I came home and asked if she could come in while she waited for another ride. I was like, umm.. I don’t think so. Then she asked me if she could just wait in my car for her ride. That was fine I guess. When I left later that night she was gone.. whew.

So the day after that I came out and she was sitting in my car with her notebooks and I was like, “lady you got to go.”

Anyways, I wrote this song based on things she said over the course of those three days. I changed the words somewhat so they’d rhyme and added some to flesh it out…but you’ll get the gist.

Oh — and I’m not even kidding.

A 50s Vampire with 2 drummers.

This is what you do on a Saturday night when you’re me.

Some original audio for your Sunday morning listening pleasure.

It’s more of a Saturday night kind of song but I had to tinker until now. πŸŽΌπŸ€”πŸ˜Š
