lyrics

Thin, severed
Gloam-weathered
No thing ever
Lasts forever
Revisioned
But no better
Scales, feathers
Skin, whatever

Take the dog for a walk
It’s not far
Obligatory spin round the block
There’s something satisfying knowing where a lesser being pees
It’s never the tree, always the pole, never the ...
The marking of place is
Denotation of time and space
It’s so mammalian
A permanence that’s written in sand
Not hard for the birds, a breeze for the plants to command
Something seems off I...
Something of the sky isn’t right
It’s all pink and purple, swirling
Menace in the clouds unfurling

Thin, severed
Gloam-weathered
No thing ever
Lasts forever
Revisioned
But no better
Scales, feathers
Skin, whatever

Make it feel real
Something you can feel
Something you can hold and say
I’m glad I knew this
Make it feel soft
A wilderness untouched
A type of computation we’re
Surprised to notice

I feel a sense of pride in my creation
Though it says nothing of myself
Of course the vanity of nations
Is how they extrapolate the self
And though a billion milling simulacrums
Are just nails in jars on shelves
I can’t bear the thought of one more sunrise
Lighting fabric realms
So I’ll set fire to the simulation (x8)

Make it feel real
Something you can feel
Something you can hold and say
I’m glad I knew this
Make it feel soft
A wilderness untouched
A type of computation we’re
Surprised to notice

Thin, severed
Gloam-weathered
No thing ever
Lasts forever
Revisioned
But no better
Scales, feathers
Skin, whatever
It’s time they knew this

about

Aversions Vancouver, British Columbia

A quixotic mix of American post-punk and '80s post-hardcore, Aversions are eastvan work-a-days trying to live the axiom of art interlacing life. Muscular riffing, left-turn basslines and sledgehammer drumming provide the substrate for vocalist Sam Coll's acidic takes on topics big and small. ... more
