hypnotized by patterns in the pumpkin vine, i focused on the waxy foliage hoping the sun would shine. i stumbled as i’d come to find the logs to build my lumber shrine, sequentially placed, systemically shaping numbered lines. gotta face the fact i can no longer simply run from time. gotta work my bones until they’re ash inside a funneled stein. study context with highlights & underlines, but my undefined biography’s impossible to summarize. and my love, i'm next to you. candy on the canvas, i paint blue skies & happy clouds, i am both the tiger’s roar & cat’s meow. loose change & two strains of headies in the dresser drawer, noticing where feathers tore & new stains on my sweater formed. leopards swarm the final destination of the shepherd’s course infinite amount of steps before you on the checkers board. so better warn your friends, the Raven’s singing nevermore & smokejumping through the Rockies into zephyr scorched. and my love, i'm next to you. & i believe; & i believe in you; & i believe in me; & i believe in us; we gotta trust. i'm next to you.

Lyrics: The moment. Inhale. Exhale. Right now. In a snake pit. Only way to break in is in a spaceship. Was in my element, dranking this fifth. Sometimes I say I wish that I could shapeshift. Move freely. People pulling tricks; Houdini. Through the whip a willsmith, blue genie If you know you know I cleaned up, used squeegee Even I thought I was down for the count; you seen me. Gonna rise again. And my eyes are red. In my town you don't amount if you try your best. You have to be qualified for the required test. You gotta beat the other guys flying out the nest. This is that moment. Frozen. Time to bust it open while everything is closing. (Covid) It is so lit way he goes in. Dreams always broken while sleeping, dozing. The moment. Inhale. Exhale. Right now.

about

Sidestep Complex’s latest offering, The Diamond Eyes of Saturn, is an ethereal journey through the sonic netherworld that is every bit as thought-provoking as it is head nod-inducing. Dan and Liz return once again with an album full of meticulously arranged, haunting bangers filled with intricately layered melodies over expertly crafted beats that never feel predictable or canned, and always leave fingers and toes tapping.
