about

Our (almost exactly) 10 year difference in age inspired the name of the project. Deck A seeks to distill a generational divide into its constituent human experiences -- love, ennui, life, death, loss, drugs, etc.

Track Name: It'll Come
It’ll come if I take my time
All my dreams are black and white
I get so tense tryna make things flow
Move too quick better take things slow
It’ll come if I take my time

I hit the pause button, let’s slow this rushing
Sober up and then I hold her closer ‘till I feel our souls are touching like
Like, “Baby, I don’t wanna fight you over nothing but I always told you I march to the beat of my own percussion”
No discussion
An assumption, I’d allow for that
Now it’s just another lump of sand up in an hourglass
I plant a seed in it
Hope it grows a flower patch
And then I roll it up and burn it down into a powdered ash
I call up all my good friends and tell ‘em this time there ain’t no Hollywood endings
We could mend it or just pretend it
But now it’s too late
I need a new sentence, let’s just end this.
Tremendous highs and lower lows than man should ever know
Know you had to get it out, but doing it in a letter though?
Tears stained the page almost made it illegible
Guess I gotta learn to let it go go go go

It’ll come if I take my time
All my dreams are black and white
I get so tense tryna make things flow
Move too quick better take things slow
It’ll come if I take my time
Track Name: Symmetry
You could see the moon was going down
Where did the evening go? I’m still awake
You could see the future in the clouds
I need to know how long it’s gonna take

Symmetry, how long will it be?
Mouth on thoughts infinity
Moth king synergy
Crown on, rock rimmed differently
Clock tick quick so the difference is a millipede
‘Cause running pavement is an understatement
The bubble in the face made him wonder what the days meant
The waves spin so the soundclip’s nicotine
Found this songshift bong hit sympathy

I’m lost up in a dream, pondering the cost of a loss of all of my authenticity
Complex simile
If caught coughin’ in a coffin then my thoughts bring infamy
Father figure the beat, figuratively
I’m sonning/sunning the track like it’s one of my little seeds
Humbled by the jungle and the beast that lives in me that I’m at peace with
I’ll sit here sipping tea and whisper mysteries

Soft simplicity
Mister misdemeanor missed the meaning of eclipse so the soular/solar smother was a swing and miss
Soft pitch little league
Off pitch singer but it lingers and it haunts him in a dream
Long live infancy, childhood died
Now the stillborn still grows five foot high
The number on the tape made me wonder where the days went
Made friends, made ends meat, but it butchered me

Made sense, changed them seats ‘till they look at me
Rookie team
Rocket pack shoe where the foot should be
Crooked lean
Walking with a swagger like I took an E
Talking and I staggered and I stumbled
It’s too quick for me
Shook it off like when the dog’s wet
The process is the object
I’m god’s head, a glass body, and chalk legs
Drawing thoughts up on the floor before I’m caught up and get cobwebbed

You could see the moon was going down
Where did the evening go? I’m still awake
You could see the future in the clouds
I need to know how long it’s gonna take
Track Name: It'll Go
Well I don’t believe in love ‘cause it never was enough for me
So tell me that you want me, tell me that you need me
Even if it’s make believe
I wonder what we’d be, but I can see beneath your eyes
It’s never gonna last so don’t get too attached
It’ll go as fast as it arrived

Me…
I’m not really too good at goodbyes
So I learned to never really ever say hello
That love bug, it’ll get you high high high
So I always learned to just stay below
And them days’ll change
This is a game that I’ve played before
I know we got a little ways to go until we close the door
And I hate to go but
But I told you
When I met you
That I know you
Think it’s special
But I’ve grown to
Be forgetful
From regrets that I built in a castle with a queen and before you leaned and I asked you not to ask me about the tattoo on my heart ‘cause I hid a dream in a capsule and I swallowed it with a drink in a glassful
Felt a sting like a stab wound
But I had to
Now the sting is a scar of a scene that you might see in me but I keep on wishing I could go back to

Well I don’t believe in love ‘cause it never was enough for me
So tell me that you want me, tell me that you need me
Even if it’s make believe
I wonder what we’d be, but I can see beneath your eyes
It’s never gonna last so don’t get too attached
It’ll go as fast as it arrived (x2)

If there’s anything to say
It’s been said a million times
So I don’t need to tell you what I see beneath your eyes
The definition of transience is never holding your hand again
But it’s better to keep a distance than to closely watch it die
If there’s anything I’ve learned
It’s that anything can fall
And if you watch in fast motion it’s a bloom and dissolve
The definition of transience is leaving in what you landed in
But it’s better to love and lose than to never love at all
If there’s anything I know
It’s that I never really left you
‘Cause if we met again and you kissed me I would let you
The definition of emptiness is never finishing sentences
But it’s better to trail off than to forget to
