about

Dedicated to those we’ve lost due to an opiate epidemic spearheaded by greedy, morally deplorable pharmaceutical corporations. These deaths are only some of the casualties of capitalism’s unabashed ruthlessness. Inspired by life experience & the book Dreamland by Sam Quinones. The reference to cottons & stick pins is a rip-off from the Mountain Goats song “Cotton”.

Ceschi New Haven, Connecticut

Track Name: The Gospel
Make it feel better • Make it heal • Make it end, please • Baby, make it feel so good • Make it cotton candy • Oxy contin candy • I want you to know right now • I want you more right now • I want you • Maybe more than ever • Taste heaven inside you • By the time that I’m empty and quiet I realize what love can do • It can make even tame dogs violent • It’ll stare you in the face and laugh • Take away your pain then bring it back • It’ll kiss you on the lips so fast • revert you to a kid then stab your back • Told me you were searching for a God • Sounded like you were giving up • We can watch our bodies fall apart • They can call it modern art • No more need for questions • All the answers packaged • In a pretty pink form • In a pretty red form • A pretty green • Pretty • Papi hid you in the top drawer with the cottons and the stick pins • Half dead man in a living room • We were all born victims • That don’t mean shit • Nothing’s prettier to any human being than this meaningless existence • Full of wish after wish after wish • Guts all scattered on the floor, Picasso • Injured bird in your palm • We will all be fossils • But for now, let’s feel less awful • Tread lightly • Walk slow • That’s the gospel • That’s the gospel • That’s the God • I want you to know right now.
