It'll all be fine Just follow me and we'll dodge the mines In open walls confined Oh it's a self inflicted crime Fetid treachery in falsified festoon Ah the misplaced optimism of the doomed You know it's not so bad We'll let indulgence drown the sads Reality nomads Incinerated at the launch pad Raw disorder incubating while entombed In the misplaced optimism of the doomed

The Commuter 03:34
We can feel the effort but the goals unclear We conceal the weapons but still only project fear Look past the drive cuz Free minds breed bad thoughts Protect the hive For comfort and money we never stop running so really we never get home We display the ethic but emote disgrace And recognize the rhetoric which holds us in our place Stare through the signs cuz Free souls can't be bought Believe the lie When everything's enemy, love is all memory feels like we're never at home It may seem so foreign it can't be important but honey we're never not home

The consequences of overvaluing struggle Saturate this society Deifying the downtrodden creates competition in the shittiest of arenas So when we seek comfort in conversation We find instead This destructive one-upsmanship Your hell or mine We're all fried It's innocent but for the fact We're all trying And we see them We see them crave persecution I watch them raise the same oppressive institution The same half thought solution Locked in the same lane In a battle of significance Based on perceived oppression Ha! Your hell or mine We're all fried It's innocent but for the fact We're all trying And there is no lesson learned In this obsession with the negative Embedded in our heads And the love gets rubbed out with sedative When they dare attempt to speak through chipped teeth And breathe some relief But we've greased the fucking rungs with some competitive grief Yeah we've greased the fucking rungs with this competitive grief Your hell or mine We're all fried It's relative but for the fact We're all dying

Who? Who? Who? The Commuter! Who? Who? Who? Who? Find new ways to make time pass find new ways to maintain minutes to hours, hours to days This routine is insane. If you like wasting time, well I could be your tutor What I do is commute, they call me the commuter. If you like wasting time, well I could be your tutor What I do is commute, they call me the commuter. Who? Who? Who? The Commuter! Who? Who? Who? Who? Question why you do this routine? Question who is to blame? carbon footprint, wasted time The whole thing's quite inane If you like wasting time, well I could be your tutor What I do is commute, they call me the commuter. If you like wasting time, well I could be your tutor What I do is commute, they call me the commuter. Who? Who? Who? The Commuter! Who? Who? Who? Who?

Always acknowledged, not always seen The pain of loss can turn so grotesque and obscene. turn aside your face, It's not a race or a competition. There's no award for discord Not sad, just bored. You're just bringing the bummer Oooooh, ooooh! Competitive grief Oooooh, ooooh! Competitive grief We cry so must faster now. Mostly acknowledged, not always known the tragedy of loss will cut right to the bone. Stop unloading your tales, side-eye through veils We're all sad, we get it. you're grieving wrong, it's the same old song. Don't be a grief vulture Oooooh, ooooh! Competitive grief Oooooh, ooooh! Competitive grief We cry so must faster now.

I shine bright just like a jewel I burn the past for fuel I keep my heart right out in the open I lay my soul bare for all to see I pack light on my way to the airport I’d like to think you cannot get to me. I hold my darkness in like a chainsaw Dark Passenger as the main MC I clutch that light in my hands like a pickaxe I guarantee you cannot get to me You cannot get to me. The misplaced optimism of the doomed I shine bright just like a jewel I burn the past for fuel I keep my sights dead set on the future Look for the light, everywhere I see Not much point in cursing the darkness I’d like to think you cannot get to me. Eyes to the sky, searching for a sign Encouragement or opportunity Although the outlook may look quite grim I guarantee you cannot get to me You cannot get to me. The misplaced optimism of the doomed I guarantee you cannot get to me You cannot get to me. I shine bright just like a jewel with the misplaced optimism of the doomed.

about

Conan Neutron & the Secret Friends and The Erratic Retaliator Strategy present: Dangerous Nomenclature (a Learning Curve Records joint)
“What's in a name? Would 'Kiss by a Rose' by any other name sound so sweet?”
Easy concept, kids. Two bands that are idiosyncratic and unique and are frequently related to the cultural dead end of "project" team up for a wild concept.

THE MISSION: pick 3 song titles
Each band writes a song to the song title, without hearing or knowing anything about the other band's work.

The title inspires the music, the lyrics, the entire approach. Certainly things have a chance of getting interesting, yes?

Anyway, what transpires is the results of this collaboration/challenge. Feast your ears upon it... if you dare!
DANGEROUS NOMENCLATURE.

VINYL PRE-ORDER COMING SOON, when we have a more realistic idea of the timeline when it might actually arrive. Thank all the Adele and Taylor Swift collector's records for that.
