about

Animal Holograms Chicago, Illinois

Psych-rock sextet sometimes labeled a grungegaze "outfit?" making dream pop music for downtrodden scumbag droves sporting mothball, over-sized flannel & fashionably expressive shredded, sewer-stained, denim heirlooms called "My fucking jeans, you fascist!". We're admittedly naive to the grunge/90's alt rock revival subculture apparently all the rage suddenly...

Track Name: Swallowed Whole by the Strange Attractor (intro)
I have burned most all of my bridges
I don't expect to come to back
All of my best laid plans have already been made
I don't expect to follow through
You (?)
I have been shown through
Every door (?)
Track Name: Evil Dream Repeater
Evil dream recurring still
Damage is done, do what we will
Rolling hills inside my head

Dead in the dirt
Eaten up by worms
I can't believe
That I was on the Earth
And to think that all I
Cared about was some girl

I just want this evil
Dream out of my head so
I can finally get the
Sleep that I have needed

Father, won't you let me
Drown here in my bed?
Mother is in the other room
Cleaning up your mess
Track Name: Walking Through Mirrors
I saw myself walking through a window
Only one of us waved goodbye
I saw myself walking through a window
Only one of us waved goodbye
Hello, brother
I wonder where you've gone

I can't be helping you anymore
It's tearing me apart inside
I don't...
Track Name: Filles de Joie in the Sky
Audio sample during the outro:

"If it is correct, as I believe it is,that a fundamental element of human nature is the need for creative work, for creative inquiry, for free creation without the arbitrary limiting effects of coercive institutions, then of course it will follow that a decent society should maximize the possibilities for this fundamental human characteristic to be realized. That means trying to overcome the elements of repression and oppression and destruction and coercion that exist in any existing society--ours for example--as a historical residue."

- Noam Chomsky audio excerpt from a televised debate with Michel Foucault
Track Name: Arctic Relics
You are the disease I need,
something broken to break into me.
And if I am the tree,
then you are the seed.
And now our leaves are growing.
I want something to make me
stop taking the things I think
I need to be somebody that
I don't even think I want to be anymore.
I've had enough...

You are the disease I need,
something broken to break into me.
And if I am the tree,
then you are the seed.
And now our leaves are growing.
I want something to make me
stop taking the things I think
I need to be somebody that
I don't even think I want to be anymore.
I've had enough...

(Audio sample of E.S. talking about something impossible to describe relating to music, emotions, film, dependence, songwriting, communicating a dream to another person through a song or record in a way that can be understood)
Track Name: Liars on Fire
Fires will burn
And liars never learn
All things unable
Even you live in a fable
Track Name: Fevers and Fears
This fever's burning me up
Everything is a blur, cauterizing my cut
Shut down and fade away tonight
It's alright so long as you are near
I fear the worst has yet
To come collect on my unpaid debts
Regrets are few but I can't neglect
That this is not what I had expected
Track Name: Pylons
I have been burning at the stake
And if all I take is your breath away
What am I to do without your sin
Burning within, it keeps me alive
(inaudible)
Track Name: Death Dancing Romance
Wires are holding together
the fibers of my feathers.
Her mood decides the weather.
So I think that I had better
catch her before the storm
turns my bones into dust,
and crushes my memory of
when it was just the world and us.

We bleed the same as them,
but we don't need anybody else
but each other when
the whole world is already over and frozen.
Our hands, like winter braches tangled up
in a death dancing romance...
Track Name: Sea Foam Memory
Please don't ever forget
the words to that poem
That washed up along
with the sea foam
Nobody has to know
Secret and separate
Lives lived side by side
We are bees in a beehive
I'm just trying to keep warm
Track Name: Walking through Mirrors (alternate version | rough demo)
I saw myself walking through
a window
Only one of us
waved good, good bye
i solina
We came out
Out from underneath
rocks that fell down from
the sky

Brother, I wonder
Where you've gone

I can't be helping you
anymore
it's tearing me
a part inside
Alright?

And you can't be helping me
anymore
it's taking it's toll
on you, don't cry
I'll be fine

Into the Sun that
we came out
out from
Eschaton
attracts the past and laughs
while swallowing
memories of sea foam poetry
written by nobody
Everybody's all alone, well hello

Brother, I wonder
Where you've gone

I can't be helping you
anymore
it's tearing me
a part inside
Alright?

And you can't be helping me
anymore
it's taking it's toll
on you, don't cry
I'll be fine

Brother, I wonder
Where you've gone

Sometimes living here makes me want to live
Somewhere I've never been
Some place I can't imagine
Someone loving you makes me want to
Play the fool
And act out how ever I need to

Nobody's inside
Everybody is inside
Everybody's outside
Nobody is outside

Sometimes living here makes me want to live
Somewhere I've never been
Some place I can't imagine
Someone loving you makes me want to
Play the fool
And act out how ever I need to

Nobody's inside
Everybody is inside
Everybody's outside
Nobody is outside
