"nobody tells this to people who are beginners. i wish someone had told me. all of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste, but there is this gap. for the first couple years you make stuff, it's just not that good. it's trying to be good, it has potential, but it's not. but your taste, the thing that got you into the game is still killer. and your taste is why your work disappoints you. a lot of people never get past this phase; they quit. most people i know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. we know our work doesn't have this special thing that we want it to have. we all go through this. and if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know that it's normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. put yourself on a deadline so that every week you finish one piece. it's only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. and i took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone i've ever met. it's gonna take a while. it's normal to take a while. you just gotta fight your way through."

Track Name: skull wind
drilled through my head
my skull. a wind blows through.
my eyes have condensation dripping off the backside

skull wind, oh
bring me back some tea leaves
skull wind, oh
carry them in the sweetness

drilled through the skull wind
oh my head has placed a new offer
oh how my neck chafes

skull wind, oh
bring me back home
skull wind, oh
carry me in the sweetness
