I am drained I am bloodless I am pure I am hollow I am melting I am pure I am bloodless I am drained I am pure I am pure (other lyrics unknown)
every face is a mask always on, always judging starve until I disappear and I become godlike I can’t figure out my fractured body I’m envious of (you) seeing me from the outside I’m so blind I just see the worst of what the mirror has to offer I know that reflections always lie I just have nothing else to go by Friends are liars They’re just being nice I know I’m an abomination
I have become a body stretched out to the horizon where do I end? god unbounded his nerves puncture through the harvest is coming infinite bliss I hate you god leave me the fuck alone I’m sorry I hate my mind I hate my body fix it for me bits and pieces please rebuild me please forgive me please forgive me I give up
not a woman but an image of one the mirror shrieks and cracks bloodied hands pick out glistening shards of girlhood I pluck out the stained-glass and lick the wounds on my infinite body as it pours out into the flesh of the world I am everything I am everyone I am everything


These four songs were done under quarantine and are about bodies, body dysmorphia and the schizophrenic dissolution of the boundary between self and other, such as the grandiose delusions of Daniel Paul Schreber. Spinoza asked" what can a body can do". Here it is asked, "where does a body end?"

In the end, are not all our bodies interpenetrated by the nerves of a malevolent god?
