True Rest Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Four young boys had crossed paths one day while lazily swimming the amazing river. They agreed that the sludge of their desolate city must spread. Thus came True Rest, a remedy of filth drowning out the twinkly nonsense all around.

Track Name: La Chika
beginning and end

both melded gates

her fetus saw her corpse

and melted all of her face

the waves of rain

they flattened into strings

she painted waste

onto all the shame

her specks of blood

on my own carpet

foreboded the shattered space

the way that you disintegrate

my eyes

behind my eyes

everything that you and I

have experienced

is gone by the wayside

in just one instant

fuck tradition

mute mutilation

tamed desolation

in every nation
Track Name: Wasted Youth
color isn't everything

you are not a living being

lovers aren't anything

why are you alive?

don't be pretentious

toward me

why do

you need to breathe?

fuck your art

(a worthless farce)

fuck your heart

you're not insane

pulling on your


until all of you

is stretched thin

you twist your faith

into something it

never was

it doesn't matter

none of it exists
Track Name: The Amazing River Sharks
I couldn't believe I was

able to block out those

toxic thoughts having

static crumpling my

ear drums leaf through

the solid waste without

a shovel scrape out

the virus inside liquidate

the language you create

and are familiar with

whenever you are alone

keep out the universal

motion, constantly humans

selling emotions holding

mother down she thinks

she will live after the

fact she will see through HIV...

she will bleed out HIV...

The fear is spreading speedily

contaminating the presence

of her unseen alternate being
Track Name: A Nuclear Japan
isn't the end absurd?

it's the end of the world

all over the flooded streets

it feels worse than when

the astro-turf filled your lungs

when they pummeled you

but it was the end of the world

then too wasn't it?

that's how slow the asphyxiation fills

it creeps through your entire life

you succumb to death

from the radioactive drift

you're gonna die

in this society
