about

Paul, The Epithet Reno, Nevada

Hi, My name is Paul. I write music on a guitar, and scream alone in a bedroom about love, life, Casablanca, squids, occasionally punkrockanarchy, and a number of other things. Sometimes I use other instruments too, to varying degrees of quality. This is some music. ... more

Track Name: The End of Context (Creepy Doctor Seuss)
I killed a man on the edge of the sea
and he looked from his grave and spoke to me
"I don't blame you, I know what you mean"
So I lay with him there and became we

I flew with a sinner to the worlds end
and there I found that spirit will only bend
I took the talons of the falcon that it used to rend
and I slit the wrists of those who would defend

I dug with a whore to the center of heaven
There we sung and danced and did the Seven
Deep inside the holy realm we unmade Eleven
and and our small changes used as leaven

The end of the us all came in flame
I sat in my motel and languished in fame
Everyone I killed was more than fair game
And they're with the one who gave us a name

So I sit on my throne of skin and smirk
Ending everything wasn't that much work
So enjoy your eternity with that holy fucking jerk
Live with me and hide and lurk

From my point of view things went rather well
The race of pigs was like an oak to fell
Easier than you think to bring about the death knell
and I've got a good view of chaos from my life in Hell.
Track Name: A Bombast of Devils
A bombast of devils
A chimney of djinn
All are here
When thou takest a sin
A party of incubi
An opulence of succubi
Good times after
Afterwards, a sigh
A pantheon of gods
A cavalry of Valkyrie
We are dead
Not one is free
Track Name: Mixed Signals
"I totally understood that what filled us with energy could be toxic for someone else, especially Eve."

One dark day in the middle of the night,
The time was here, the moment was right.
I took a step forward and a leap back,
And threw away protection in defense of the attack.

Ruination and failure and smiles a-fly,
I’d crashed and burned right into the sky.
Nothing ever goes quite as planned,
And failure is wrought when you take a stand.

Ashes to fire and sand to erosion,
Your hearts been heated until it’s frozen.
Calamity strikes and the best emerges,
But savants are smart enough to stifle those urges.

I was shot down over an open field,
And death but awaits me, held in her heel.
Broken hearts can be mended with a circular saw,
And the fight against defiance is one’s only flaw.

Indeed what is stolen can be put to good use,
You stole my heart, and I faked the truce.
Come hither, come hither and then go away,
No one must die to live this way.

The volume of life is measured in pain,
And by how much one’s willing to be hurt again.
Overall the pain has left but a dent,
When she says one thing and the meaning is different.

Now if you’ll excuse me I have to pay my rent,
And my jailor gets mad if the money’s content.

Good-day and bright nights to all of your druthers,
And may irritation and pain fall to all of the others.
Please use truth to fend off the liars.
And as a favor to me,
Use flame on the fires.
Track Name: Louisiana Land (OK Go Cover)
Miss Antoinette she went out with a song
Selling booze and silver shoes and singing right along.
Shotgun and a limousine while the baby dolls march on
Miss Antoinette she went out with a song.

And it's a long way down
Yeah it's a long way down.

Down at the Maple Leaf they pack 'em in
We all get sauced, turn down the house, so we start all over again.
And tonight we'll all get reborn to a couple fifths of gin.
(here we go)

The rich boys get their money back when the banks go belly up
But if you're downtown when the levees break well you're shit out of luck.
(shit out of luck)

And over at the place they train the guards
With Stanton on the drums you don't need no one on guitar
And sometimes all it takes is going way too far

And it's the long way down
Yeah it's the long way down
Aw it's the long way down
A long way down

The rich boys get their money back when the banks go belly up
But if you're downtown when the levees break well you're shit out of luck.
The penthouse paupers need your help so everybody lend a hand
And maybe they'll get you a real sweet price on Louisiana land

Now Christ down on the street with his trombone
And even though the 12-year olds have got in their bones
Above these 20 blocks no one's alone

The rich boys get their money back when the banks go belly up
But if you're downtown when the levees break then you're shit out of luck.
The penthouse paupers need your help so everybody lend a hand
And maybe they'll get you a real sweet price on Louisiana land
Track Name: We Are Not Alone
I can only hope that when the end comes around,
I’ll get to spend the final moments of the universal lie staving off the last with you
The problem with Diaspora is the mean Miasma in my lungs without you
Without you
Except you’re here
Even though you’re not
I am not
We are not alone
Track Name: Happiness in a Red Wine Glass (Moving to Nebraska)
Lyrics by Heidi Benefiel

One final dance
Among the glances
of everyone I've ever despised
One middle finger to their
Envious eyes,
FUCKING LIARS

Happiness in a red wine glass
I drink to all their sadness
I drink to you
Track Name: Hella Squid
Squids
I desire some squids
Squids
I really would like some squids
Tall ones, fat ones, brown ones, green ones, Giant ones, small ones, orange ones
Squids

When you're a crustacean that's bad
When you're a squid that's rad
When there's something really cool my kid
All you've got to say
THATS HELLA SQUID

Squids
Things that are cool are squids
Squids
Things that aren’t cool are crabs
Squids

When you're a crustacean that's bad
When you're a squid that's rad
When there's something really cool my kid
All you've got to say
THATS HELLA SQUID

They've got natural suction cups!
Long arms, thick shells, bulbous eyes,
They’ve got natural suction cups!
natural
Natural
Au naturale
natural
Natural
Au naturale
Suction cups
And a beak
Giants are off the grid and I say…
Hella squid
Hella squid
Hella Squid
Hella Squid
(etc)

When you're a crustacean that's bad
When you're a squid that's rad
When you've got something really cool my kid
All you've got to say
That's HELLA SQUID
Track Name: Somewhere in the Between (Streetlight Manifesto cover)
You were gone when we found you
You were practically surrounded, you were trapped
But the opposition stalled, their blood ran cold
When they saw the look of love in your eyes

Maybe the times we had, they weren't that bad
And everything else was part of the plan
We sang: "I don't know where we go from here"
This is the alpha, omega, beginning and the end
And we all just idolize the dead

So you were born, and that was a good day
Someday you'll die, and that is a shame
But somewhere in the between was a life of which we all dream
And nothing and no one will ever take that away

You had a love and that love had you
And nothing mattered, you were fine
And some will complain, they're just bitter, what a shame
They know that loving and losing is better than nothing at all

Maybe the times we had, they weren't that bad
And everything else was part of our path
We sang: "I don't know where we go from here"
This is the anthem, the slogan, the summary of events
And we all just idealize the past

Maybe the times we had, they weren't that bad
And everything else was part of the plan
We sang: "I don't know where we go from here"
This is the alpha, omega, beginning and the end
And we all just idolize the dead

So you were born, and that was a good day
Someday you'll die, and that is a shame
But somewhere in the between was a life of which we all dream
And nothing and no one will ever take that away


And someday soon my friends, this ride will come to an end
But we can't just get in line again
Track Name: Forever Both Ways in the Cosmos
Dancing singing ripping up stars
Blue sky above and periwinkle cars
Laughing, cursing, kissing in the dark
You alone live in my heart

Forever both ways in cosmos too
And this as well we’ll make it through
And parks and lights and recreation
Points for Points and desecration
And in the world is a part of us two
And It’s I who loves you

Fire all the canons of my soul
You and me we’ll make heads roll
Let’s eat out! We’ll eat French Fries!
And swallow the sun til the daytime dies!

Forever both ways in cosmos too
And this as well we’ll make it through
And parks and lights and recreation
Points for Points and desecration
And in the world is a part of us two
And It’s I who loves you

You and Me and You and Me
and Me and You and Me and You
And You and Me and You and Me
We're We.
