about

A collection of tracks produced via a process of Immersion Composition, as part of the Burning Lodge.
This album includes some staples of the immersion composition process - three 'meta' songs, where the lyrics are about the song-writing process, and three 'random card songs', where the musical structure has been determined by a process of randomly selecting cards with chords written on them.

Track Name: Gonna Have to be Friday
Today's the day I gotta get to it
But it seems that I can't get through it
Got a problem with my head
Don't know if I'm alive or dead
Right now I can't get the motivation
I need to reach a state of elevation
But it seems the lift is broken
It's comedy time and I'm not joking

Seems like there's only one thing for it
And I can no longer ignore it

It's gonna have to be Friday
It's gonna have to be Friday
I can't do it on Monday
So it's gotta be Friday
Track Name: Cleaning Shit from my Windscreen
We start from a clean late but it soon gets soiled
You can't run things smoothly without being well oiled
We reach the same sticking point and we can't get unstuck
And every time I try to fix it, it seems I'm out of luck

So I go for a drive in my car
But I don't get far, because

Talking to you is just like cleaning shit from my windscreen
Trying to cut right through the crap
Just when I think I'm done, there's another load on my windscreen
Seems like a never-ending trap
