You’re simple and honest and that’s why I love you And I know you feel the same way for me don’t you The sum of our parts is the sum of our angles Our symmetry makes separation so painful Your lines are so fine you look just like a painting I sit on the floor near the wall where you’re hanging I study your shapes and your various poses I stare at you until the museum closes And when you wear my clothes when the loving is done And walk around the house with nothing else on They look much better on you, don’t they my love? And no one else knows what it’s like Yeah only we know what it’s like You make me feel strange and you make me feel jealous I need every bit of your love ‘cause I’m selfish And when we’re together we mirror each other The same on both sides when we touch one another We’re drawn on the blackboard inside of the classroom To prove to the class with our math what can happen When two perfect sides come together on top of A base representing the place where we make love And when you say to me that you’ll leave me unless I take you to the bedroom and help you undress I really have no choice but to take your request And no one else knows what it’s like Yeah only we know what it’s like You’re simple and honest and that’s why I love you And I know you feel the same way for me don’t you I look at you next to me when you are sleeping And notice you’re so geometrically pleasing And none of you know what it’s like Well, some of you know what it’s like

Lazybones get off the couch Your house is burning down And you’re smoking cigarettes Please tell me the secret why You’re laid up on the couch Do you know or did you forget? Lazybones get out of bed It’s raining cats and dogs Your clothes are soaking wet Are you OK today or not? I think that you mean no Whenever you say yes And when you think that I have had my fill Of your secret thoughts tell me another still And when you think that I’m sick of you being ill Tell me another and another still Tell me another and another still You don’t have to spare me anything at all And you never will Tell me another and another still If you don’t want me telling anyone Then I never will Once I knew a girl and she Was good at Rubik’s cube And loved Monopoly Now that girl is only good At sitting on the couch And voicing complaints to me Tell me why you never feel Like going out with me The way we used to do I’m not mad and we can do Whatever you feel like Depending on your mood And when you think that I have had my fill Of your secret thoughts tell me another still And when you think that I’m sick of you being ill Tell me another and another still Tell me another and another still You don’t have to spare me anything at all And you never will Tell me another and another still If you don’t want me telling anyone Then I never will

Places places everybody Battle stations everybody Some of you are not prepared To have a good time tonight Everybody stand in place And wait with folded arms Places places battle stations Ready or not… Why won’t someone spike the punch? All I had was gum for lunch And all I want to do is let The booze infect my mind Take me to that place Where I can live my fantasies Places places battle stations More punch if you please When the power goes out We’ll all have to shout Because our ears are plugged into the grid When the speakers stop workin’ Everybody stops twerkin’ And we’ll sew buttons like our grandparents did Places places everybody Battle stations everybody Get yourself together And together we can get Just as clinically insane As everybody wants Move your feat to imagined beats They kill you then they haunt

Hello you don’t know me But I want to get married I know we’ll meet someday We’ll give our kids weird names I know it sounds cliché To say I’ve never felt this way Well maybe once I did When I was still just a kid I’ll give all my love to you And wait for yours to come I’ve got a lot of love to give I hope that you’ve got some What is this love doing to me? I heard a rumor somewhere That you didn’t like my kind Now how can I compete? Apples to oranges Lemme tell you what this is like Slipping on banana peels Knotted up laces Ass over tea kettle If you don’t want my love at all Just give it back to me I gave you all the love I had And now I need it back What is this love doing to me?

You're driving your car down a desolate midnight road. Is there a body in the trunk? Nobody knows.

ASMR girl Whisper my name Say something to me I won’t understand ASMR girl Role play with me Shampoo my hair yeah And then talk me to sleep ASMR girl Tap fingernails On a glass makeup bottle My hair stands on end Shiver me tingles Massage my brain All I want from you Is to know your real name ASMR girl Where did you go? Why haven’t you posted Any new videos? ASMR girl Inaudible sound Crinkle some paper But try not to be loud

I love Love how How girls Girls have Purses Versus Handfuls of stuff I love Love how How girls Girls have Purses Versus Nothing at all Rattle Rattle Searching Rifling around Private Secret Making Delicate sounds Loose change Lip stick Tampons Hair clips Spare keys Tissues Take-out menus Coupons Q-tips Cell phone Breath mints Pictures Glasses Nail file Matches

My nightlight soft as snow Drive my car with my eyes closed I knew once but I forgot And now I can’t but thanks a bunch Sad in bed lullaby Blue canary softly nightlight Start a fire in my room You can see the flames from space You want to know But I can’t say And I wouldn’t tell Ever anyway Now there was a thing That I think I knew But now I forget So what can you do? Nightlight glowing up on stage Hey magician guess my age Make the snow light disappear Softly softly do it once more Where’d I put my whatchacallit? That magician stole my wallet Start a fire with some matches Carry it with you ‘til winter Snow is falling only on me Blue canary softly softly Paper hearts from stationary Scented and incendiary

I get no kick from Champaign And some, they go for cocaine But you won’t hear me complain I just turn on other ways This isn’t Lucy in the sky And it’s no day in the life There’ll be no veiled reference here I’ll make it perfectly clear Just one handful of pink pills And then a new world’s revealed Entire body goes numb My hands become boxing gloves I won’t remember anything At all when I wake up How long was I asleep? I think I slept a week My mouth’s too dry to speak Describing this is hard Hey it’s beautiful and frightening I’m seeing things I shouldn’t see My soul is melting Hey I’ll thank you to not bother me I’m high on diphenhydramine My brain is swelling I’ll call you one the telephone Tomorrow and I’ll say I love you but your sex appeal Just fails to make me feel As wonderfully surreal As when I do this stuff

I want to feel like a rock I want to feel like a tree Nothing’s bothering me Nothing’s anything me Don’t want to be a ghost Or a helpless baby Please stop bothering me Please stop everything me You wanna go someplace You can forget your cares? I will make you aware That you're already there Now stop your sobbin’ yeah And you can follow me I know a place we can be Where we can feel like a tree Pack a bag and get into the cab It’s an emotion vacation Emotion vacation Nothing hurts no more crying at work It’s an emotion vacation Emotion vacation No tears today because now you’re OK It’s an emotion vacation Emotion vacation Where we’ll go you don’t care you don’t know It’s an emotion vacation Emotion vacation Dry your eyes ‘cause I’ve got a surprise! It’s an emotion vacation Emotion vacation Lift your head and get out of your bed It’s an emotion vacation Emotion vacation No more pouting it’s time for and outing An emotion vacation Emotion vacation We can do anything me and you On our emotion vacation Emotion vacation

about

Stations/Isosceles is United Shapes' sixth album. It's about love and friendship, depression, partying all night, ASMR, over-the-counter drug abuse, celebrity crushes, womens' handbag trinkets and certain triangles.

And it's technically a secret, so don't let Andrew hear it. This is the second half of a double album consisting of essentially two solo albums by Andrew and myself. My half is finished, but not his. We are keeping our halves secret from each other until all of it is finished so that we can both be surprised by our own band's album and enjoy it like people who aren't us. His song titles are the same as mine, but the songs are about different things. This album tastes like a palindrome because it is a palindrome.
