Katie Dotson hard at work making weird and wonderful music.

Life form got a message stuck in its head
Through the two ears on it
Its mother and its father never knew he had a friend like that
Not in a song

Track Name: Clemency
don't know what i'm waiting for
sanctity ain't real no more
get the matches, gasoline
is leaking over all my dreams
if i could i would escape
i made a mess of everything
getting older, growing up's
just getting tough and buttoned up
stars i wish on might align
if they do i'll be just fine
call my mother, call my friends:
tell them i'm alive again!

ah ah ah ah
ah ah ah ah
ah ah ah

baby, whisper in my ear
tell me what i'm doing here
all my days pass in a haze
yeah, they go by and i remain
whole world's going straight to hell
ain't doing so well myself
i don't wanna go outside
no everyone just wanna fight
i don't know what i don't know
if you think you do, that's bold
kinda fucked up, kinda mean--
that's how you make a mess of things
think i should be at my peak
but babe, i've never felt so weak
all this life some guessing game
it's gonna drive us all insane
