about

I write a lot of songs and these are my favorites from the past year or so. I recorded them to cassette and then added backup vocals with my laptop.

I hope these songs make people happier. I want to thank all of my friends for putting up with me asking for their opinions on these songs and whatnot. Also thank you to everyone who lent me your voice for the final track! You're all the true heroes~

Jacob Norman Chainsaw-Arm is a part of the eclectic music collective thingy called BINKY:

Track Name: Heart Colored Sheets
I don't like sex. I just don't see the appeal.
But I see beauty in human beings and I'm beginning to learn the ways which I feel.
I do love love. I'm fairly sure of that.
I wanna lie together hand in hand, breathing in air on our backs.

Ooh...

Touching skin is fairly akin.
To moss on stones or chicken bones, either way I really enjoy it, let's call it a win-win!
I know you might know me,
A little bit, but let's not kiss just yet I cannot wait to see

That in three years when our hearts are near
Our faces will be apart and I'll eat your ear
We will know each other we will know ourselves well
We will know that a no means no and that's swell
Keep it slow, for me dear if you could
I am oh so tired of being made out of wood
And now I am home, I think that's where I'm meant to be.
We are home and I am sore but I think we're happy.
Track Name: Heaven Sent
Is there a part of me left inside of you today?
When you were sitting on the stairs, I hope that you might have just thought I cared.
Has there ever been a possibility of it ever having went any other way?
I don't remember when you called, but it feels like it's been oh so long

Now the ice cream is exploding and I know it's just emoting, but I feel like my life has already been spent.
So please just hold your tongue, I'm tired of acting so young and I know that we both have wished we were heaven sent
But your friends may just be locked inside my head.

I'm a human trapped inside my body and I'm clawing my way to you.
Your smile's growing thick and wide, I wish that it were mine.
And when I reach you there, inside I swear I dare together we'll be two.
One body and two souls, let's finish before the cold.

Now the ice cream is exploding and I know it's just emoting, but I feel like my life has already been spent.
So please just hold your tongue, I'm tired of acting so young and I know that we both have wished we were heaven sent
But your life may be better off trapped inside my head.

Wouldn't it be nice, if you could warrant my advice?
You wouldn't have to feel so cold at last nor would you have to ask about my past
And between crosses we will stand, our courage, keeping us trapped hand in hand
Our feet drifting off the land maybe one day you'll understand.

And now the popsicles melting and the reaper is expelling all those crazy and angry thoughts once trapped inside my head.
So please just hold me down, I'm pulsating on the ground and I hope I don't go back to where I have been
The truth was better off when rapped in sin
Track Name: Monarch Minnow Abacas Jar
I am going back to Maryland next week
And when I go my legs will be speaking to me
They will say, "It has been so long since I've been on this trail
And hell well, do you even care?"

I am packing all my bags tomorrow
Soon I will try to fit them in my car
I know that it's too much and I'm not driving very far
But well I am the 'Monarch Minnow Abacas Jar'

I am going back to Maryland tomorrow
And when I'm driving my arms will ask,
"Do you remember this particular river?
Do you ever think about your past?
And do you know how long this can this last."
I said "It's all just moving a little too fast."
Track Name: 100
I don't wanna break it to you.

But I never really wanted to be here anyway
And I never really knew what I wanted to this day.

I don't wanna break it to you.

And I know that I look watertight sometimes, but that just isn't right.
So many songs make me wanna cry. I'm awake most every night.
And while I love this body sometimes I feel like it just isn't mine.
I am living to a 100, I will survive this fight, I will make it out alive.
I am living to a 100, I will survive this fight, I will make it out alive.
Track Name: Needs Saying
I don't know if this needs saying but I'm loneliest when I'm alone.
So eat your meals next to me. I want to be free from these emotions that I call home.

I want you to be my canker sore. I wanna taste your pain on my lips.
We'll drink orange juice and it'll hurt like a loose so just promise we won't double dip.

I've heard that you can fly and I've seen your hair draped over mine
But please touch the ground, it's simple and sound and I'm anxious that you won't be found.

I don't know if this needs saying but I'm happiest when I'm with you.
So hold me tight if that's alright because love is something sacred and true.
Track Name: Pretentious Song 69
The day after I learned that the meaning of life is love I became petrified around all of my friends.
You see I figured that if I wasn't a ray of fucking sunshine then I'd somehow done wrong to them.
So maybe I was asking all the wrong questions from the start and it's the meaning of love that's important. Perhaps that's true but I think that question's far too hard.
Maybe love has no meaning and maybe that's alright. The hedonistic pleasure we grant ourselves are fleeting but that doesn't merely reduce their might.
Romantic or platonic, familial neurotics, we try to sift the real from the fake. Remember everything is holy, nothing isn't sacred, and you can just love love for love's sake.
Track Name: Hot Tub
Oh ho, alright. Let's go and lie awake all night
Oh ho, alright. Let's go and lie awake all night~

I remember sitting in that cupboard waiting for you to come home.
You were thinking that I was skinny dippin when I was just still alone.
Oh ho, alright. Let's hang out at the hot tub all night.
Oh ho, alright. Let's go skinny dippin all night~

With fingers draped down your backside I wouldn't ever go
I was crawling out from the walls and how was I supposed to know?
That I wasn't clear. I'm sorry if you didn't hear.
I said my goodbyes. I'm sorry if I made you cry~
Track Name: Lapis Lazuli
Back at school you crystallized
Monster or not, I don't mind.
I got your back. You got mine.
Your heart belongs to a different time.

And if you love yourself
Half as much as I love you
Maybe you could sprout some wings
And bid this whole freaking landscape adieu.

You've got mirrors in your eyes.
I think you can break the sky.
I got your back and you got mine.
But if you go I won't go so goodbye.

And if you love yourself
Half as much as I love you
Maybe you could sprout some wings
And bid this whole freaking landscape adieu.
Track Name: Habbits & Aging
I'm becoming the kind of person who flosses daily and I'm still finding blood in my shit.
I'm beginning to see my pale scalp inside of the mirror. My hair is thinning and I'm growing kinda scared of it

My athletes foot is gone but now I have a hole in my toe
And a lump in my eyebrow but I was told it's fine until it grows.

I'm still biting my nails every chance I get and now my fingers are stubby and cold.
I always just imagined that that was something which I would magically grow out of as I got old.
I remember when I couldn't open my mouth one morning in physics class
And then jaw clicked for the next 5 years. I didn't even notice when it stopped. So I guess maybe actually, maybe it actually wasn't even that bad

My dentist told me not to worry about until it hurts.
And my parents told me they were actually a little bit concerned.
Track Name: I FEEL LOVED I FEEL WARM I FEEL GLAD
Have you ever taken a walk in the woods with all of your best friends?
Have you ever been down to the beach and wanted to hug everyone until the end
of time? I love your kind. I love to drink drinks with lime and I think I might know how I can let myself cry sometimes.

I FEEL LOVED! I FEEL WARM! I FEEL GLAD~!

Have you ever thought about how you'd feel at the end of times?
I don't care if you love someone, I just care if you're not behind
On your schoolwork. I am looking out for you.
And the best of times are in front of us and the worst of times are through! Woo hoo hoo! I hope that's true.

I FEEL LOVED! I FEEL WARM! I FEEL GLAD~!

I want to believe that love surpasses life and I hope that you might
One day agree with me. It know it can be can be hard to see, when you're looking into the light
But I have no more right than you to not feel blue

I feel loved, I feel warm, I feel glad~
I FEEL LOVED! I FEEL WARM! I FEEL GLAD~!
