about

Between assisting sessions at Supernatural Sound, Hakeem reached out to Teddy after a few years apart to track Teddy's songs and master the studio's legendary API console.

Naturally, the project took the same shape as the two's collaborations nearly a decade ago; Teddy sings and plays angular guitar lines, and Hakeem drums and produces aggressively. Adding to the palette is Serena Worthington's soft falsetto.

Dripping wet. The Animal Sound.

Track Name: Past Lines
We'll love the sun
Until we're unable
To breach the plans
But never had any
I'm not a man
I am a vessel
To the world
Who is the world?

And do it so
Do it so happily

Negate the sound
The sound that swallowing
Simple thoughts
The water is silent
I'm not alone
I am a vessel
To the world
Who is the world?

Step into the room, come on
Upset the sound

Just as sunspots come
Came into the room
Building holes in a
Exit through the ground
Track Name: For Today
Heroine, the master of the sun
She never had enough to say
We are just a message in the dust
Once received forever gone away

Don't lose your voice
Don't lose

Living, basking in the rust
Pulling strings, pulling legs
Memory is waiting with the dusk
Anxiously waiting for today
Track Name: Two Days from Now
Zombies with money
Dead chicks buy shit up
Like it's brains
You're all the same

Daydreams on the TV
Wish that could be me
You're all the same
All the same

Walking in blue shoes
The shoes are walking you today
What a day

[Sing it with me! Come on, Ted!
Come on. Ted. I'm getting pissed off.]

Ooh, it's hell
Ooh, it's hell
Why are we here now?
Why think to be here?

You won't be thankful
Two days from now
You won't be thankful
Going back to
Two days from now

Ooh, it's hell
Ooh, it's hell
Why are we here now?
Why think to be here?

Ooh, it's hell
Ooh, it's hell
Why think to be here?
Why think to be here?
Track Name: Sunshine
The rain
The rain, it soaked our feet
The rain, it soaked up everything

We needed
We needed a big bright kiss from the sun

Ambiance in the air
Vested by the moon

And the sunshine's waiting for you

A big, bright kiss from the sun
Track Name: Homeostasis
To be someone that you know
To learn where to be at home
Not to say there's an answer
To think or to know

Take time to take care of it
Time will not take care of you

To see somewhere that you know
And be someone at all
I don't mind going in circles
I don't mind, I don't mind

Take time to take care of it
Time will not take care of you
Track Name: Words
Truth
It is not real
Like you
Not real like you
Nothing to say
Nothing to fool

To say
Nothing to fool
Nothing to say
To fool

Who are you?
Who are you?
Track Name: Strange House
Whatever, it's fine.

Strange house
Track Name: Dreams Lite
Hit it!

She's after all
The one it turns out I could most believe in
In the midst of it all
This town is on fire, oh yeah I set it on fire

She's never gonna leave you now

Out of the the hands
Makes you feel better off
And who is in charge?
You feel the mind opens up

She's [I'm] never gonna leave you now

Stare straight at the sun
Look straight into the face
Don't try to be so careful!

She's [I'm] never gonna leave you now

Out of the hands
Makes us feel better off
And who is in charge?
You feel the mind is gone

Hit it!
Track Name: Older
Taken straight
Diluted with my blood
Make a homage to brain, away

Lucid and fiscus

Doesn't matter
Leave it dying on the floor
Doesn't matter
Let them bleed, them bleed
Let them bleed

And bloom, bloom, bloom

Devil won't lie to me
Whispers from my shoulder
Time's worth more to me
Because now we're older
Whispers from my shoulder
Because now we're older

Living in pictures
Can't hang on a crown
Head outside on my own, away

Lucid and fiscus

Doesn't matter
Leave it dying on the floor
Doesn't matter
Let it bleed, bleed, bleed

And bloom, bloom, bloom

Devil won't lie to me
Whispers from my shoulder
Time's worth more to me
Because now we're older
Whispers from my shoulder
Because now we're older
Track Name: Half-Life
We don't need, we don't need
Need a foreground
Washing, wash out
Washing to wash out conscious lines

That sound is comfort
That sound is comforting to see
Waves break in time
Waves break in time, go back to sleep
To sleep

You will float for half your life
You will float for half your life
For half your life

Two more little, two more pills
Let's be ours
That sound is so
That sound's so comforting to hear

Washing, wash out
Brain states have never been so clean
The void has no
It has no clear use for you here

You will float for half your life
You will float for half your life
For half your life
