about

The new album "Syncretism" may document time and space post brain tumor operation #2 and it may approach story telling in typical mustoek acumen but it is different than last years "Everyday is Like Living on a Fishing Boat" and "Losing Another Part of Me". If those albums were explorations into form and structure as vehicles of emotive explanations then "syncretism" is more of a collection of subconscious momentary directional forays documented in song form. Inspiration, immediacy and celebration direct the listener to new outcomes in this album. However, don't be fooled it is still steeped in mustoek noise soundscapes, layered visuals and meandering melodies.

Enjoy!

Wash Out To Sea

Oh, I'm terrified
People fade
I heard it said
Raven knows on a telephone line
Your eyes black as coal in my hands

Let me wash out
Let me wash out
Swim in the sea
Swim in the sea

Oh, rain keeps me sane
People fade I've heard it said
You look worse
Touch of death
People fade
I heard you say
Oh, look at you
Oh, now...

Watch it fade
Nothing left today...
Let me fade
Wash out to sea
Walk with me
Wash out to sea
Wash out and fade
Watch it fade
Wash out to sea

hey, I was thinking of you the other day

was it because you knew the truth

i know nothing's left
i wonder how you've been
i wonder the things you've seen
i know, It's cuz you know the truth

biodomes
and broken homes
crushed cones

Showerhead Mouth

my smile
is coming off
my head
it can't talk
my mouth is like a showerhead
words drip out until nothing's left
my head is in a thick fog
my face it won't walk
my heart has been tied to the masthead
you smile at it all

where are you now?
where are you now?
stupid cow.

Showerhead...
Showerhead...
Showerhead...

my head is where my heart is
weighing my heart
in wait
like an old, like a hawk
like a Showerhead
my mouth drips
like an old Showerhead
drip, drip, drip, drip,
where are you now?
drip, drip, drip, drip, drip,
stupid cow
drip, drip, drip, drip, drip,
where are you now?
drip, drip, drip, drip, drip, drip, drip, drip, drip,drip,

the Showerhead head drips on and on...
my mouth goes on and on
and the Showerhead drips on and on
and the lives we live are horribly wrong
the Showerhead is always on
and the lies we tell are horribly wrong
it goes around and around
the Showerhead drips on and on
long and on, long and on, long and on,
my mouth drips on and on...
drips on and on...

I may be useless
I may be thoughtless
I may be gutless
I may be toothless
I may be hopeless, I may be loveless
I may be directionless
I may be hopeless
I may be listless

all I know is brings me down
how can things ever be the same
this brings me down
now that world is run by the insane
it brings me down

I may be useless
I may be thoughtless
I may be gutless
I may be toothless
I may be hopeless
I may be loveless
I may be directionless
I may be hopeless
I may be listless

all I know is brings me down
how can things ever be the same
this brings me down
now that world is run by the insane
it brings me down

why you gotta bring me down?
why you gotta bring me down?
why you gotta bum me out?
what's it all about?
ah man dont bring me down
don't make me stay up at night
thinking of things never knowing what's right
why you gotta bring me down?
why you gotta crush my hope in humanity?
why you gotta go and do that?
why you go and do that?
why you gotta go and do that again?

where were you last year
where were you five years ago
carving out piecemeal what you could legally steal
where were you then

I don't know what is real anymore
I don't know what is real anyway

where were you ten years ago today
where were you twenty years to the day
what in the world was moving
where were you a thousand times again

I don't know what is real
I don't know what is real
I don't know what is real
Anyways...

I don't know anymore
I don't know anymore
I don't know anymore
I don't know anymore...
