about

When you die, you become a ghost, and you get to haunt people, and make parts of the room too cold for no reason.

This EP explores death from the atheist, Catholic, and Buddhist perspective and shifts in mood from light to scary and back again.

Track Name: How I Lost My Body
GHOST:
When you die you become a ghost
And you get to haunt people
And make parts of the room too cold for no reason

Someone else renovates your house
Cuts down the tree you planted
And puts their children's garish plastic playhouse in the yard near the stump

C'est la vie your grandson snickers
Spending his inheritance on game consoles and action figures
Craigslisted the clarinet you bought him

Go ahead and try to haunt him
Show up as an artifact of lens flare on his Flickr forum
But it won't work because you're dead

When you die those you love the most
Dress up to view your body
Then go out to the Waffle House to eat pancakes

The priest aims to form a schism
Checking his notes for your name and dwelling on your atheism
Stand up sit down and look at the carpet

He looked so good in his coffin
Can I have his iMac? Let's go to this Waffle House more often
More coffee waitress I'm so cold!

SCAM ARTIST:
Electronics help me to find
Ectoplasmic residue
Left upon your bowling trophies

For a fee of 9.99
I will come back each day to
Exorcise your toaster oven

Scorpio your stars have aligned
Once your check clears you will in-
itiate into the mysteries

Close your eyes and focus your mind
Deep within this talisman
Is the secret of clairvoyance


GHOST:
When you die you become a ghost
And you get to haunt people
And make parts of the room too cold for no reason

Go ahead and try to haunt him
Show up as an artifact of lens flare on his Flickr forum
But it won't work because you're dead

SCAM ARTIST:
With this meter I have divined
Why your haunted microwave
Causes grapes to give off plasma

Your dead grandma is trapped in time
Won't you help her find her peace
by enrolling in my classes

Ram this lingam into your shrine
immolate your amulet
please present your painted pebbles

Sancte deus! That's the wrong spell!
You've opened the door to the
Spirit realm and ghostly places

Demons come through portals from hell
They're here to eviscerate
People who have not repented
Track Name: Recordare
Recordare, Jesu pie,
quod sum causa tuae viae;
ne me perdas illa die.
Quaerens me, sedisti lassus,
redemisti crucem passus;
tantus labor non sit cassus.

Juste judex ultionis,
donum fac remissionis
ante diem rationis.

Ingemisco, tamquam reus:
culpa rubet vultus meus;
supplicanti parce, Deus.

Qui Mariam absolvisti,
et latronem exaudisti,
mihi quoque spem dedisti.

Preces meae non sunt dignae,
sed tu, bonus, fac benigne,
ne perenni cremer igne.

Inter oves locum praesta,
Et ab haedis me sequestra,
Statuens in parte dextra.
