About the song BHS:

I made the music for “Buried Horror Show” in one sitting (this is a nice idea for any art piece to be made in one swift move but this never happens to me, and I almost don’t recommend it). I was thinking of the “Are You Afraid Of The Dark?” theme song, (remember that show on Nick?). The lyrics were me waking up one day on the wrong side of the bed, and watching myself make a habitual choice to just repress that state of mind and accommodate whomever.

And when I caught it, I got hostile towards myself. And this song is me singing to myself in hostility for neglecting myself for so long. I talk more about it here at 1:45:

About the song Requiem in B Minor:

This song was made a year after Horror Show, same chord progression, but I wanted to have a short menacing instrumental to open the live show with. I’m not sure if I was listening to Darth Vader’s theme song(which came from Chopin’s funeral march) or what, but this came out.

If you notice, on the Spotify version, there is this lady saying stuff like "I care about myself." That's Louise Hay, who is an awesome healing master. I thought it'd be ironic to include a figure who specializes in self-care and add it to the transition song before Horror Show.

about the song Captain Hunchback:

This song was probably the biggest pain to finish out of any song because it got revised so many times. I wanted to make a song that depicted being in social setting, and being in an internal nightmare, unable to break free. I think I had The Used “Bird and a Worm” “he crawls like a worm” screaming chant in my head. A couple weeks before I flew to Nashville to get the Secret Schizoid mixed, I wrote new lyrics and recorded the vocals in a TeePee that I was living in, literally. The lyrics came from an experience of getting a reality check about where I was at in my music career, and how much I had been dreaming versus being realistic… and it got me really afraid to think of the prospect of losing my dream, which is my life’s blood, it’s the only thing that saved me from suicide I think.
