this song is about the redemptive powers of dancing. inviting the world to throw everything it’s got at you cause you know you will be born again on the dancefloor when the moon come out and the bass flow freely. it’s cheesy i know but i really love dancing. #bringiton #can’ttouchthis

——————————

let it come down
i been a shadowed damsel
daggerless and birtht again and again
and again friendless

let it come down
i seen twenty three felled me’s
buried nameless in my lower back plainses

let it come down
in any sway, grain, grade of weight
send me the swallowing hallowing rain 
edible i ain’t
indelible my scapulas silver and wait
for burst clouds lack restraint

i statue it through to do like the mirrored spheres do

twirl it off
my heart sharpens
twirl it off
when the dancefloor darkens
twirl it off
my new shoes untied and scuffed
twirl it off
twirl it off

and so i work my twirl in the collapsed pearls
that i once called health or justice or home
my ventricles unfurl and web the woke world
i’m on some fresh sweat and reciting a wordless tome

i statue it through to do like the mirrored spheres do

twirl it off
my heart sharpens
twirl it off
when the dancefloor darkens
twirl it off
my new shoes untied and scuffed
twirl it off
twirl it off

this song is about me n oscars friendship. after we had had our first fight ever oscar came home with this beat singing the chorus over the top of it as a way of honoring our honesty and perseverance in the face of our first disagreement. roughly two years later we opened it back up and i put a verse down on it reflecting about the times we had together when i first moved into our old warehouse. it’s a very special song to me.

(Key Sung)

open up again

we don’t hide from each other

flourescent sleeves

i want to know how you feel

open up again

we don’t lie to eachother

you’re my friend

i want you to know how i feel

(Flowers)

i was new to the neighbourhood

i was new to accepting that i was still young

that i was still good

you showed me around sunset on this side of town

which way the fire rise which way the fire go down

summer of morning glow

summer of drippy rainbow

summer of no way, you too?

i ain’t never met anyone who also felt that way too!

it’s so rare to find someone who dream like you

like you

from our warehouse roof i see the curve of the earth

i think we both mighta found the kind of friend that we always deserved

(Key Sung)

open up again

we don’t hide from each other

flourescent sleeves

i want to know how you feel

open up again

we don’t lie to eachother

you’re my friend

i want you to know how i feel

(Flowers)

love ain’t always saying how you was right

love is learning how to always do right

always do true

always do right

(Key Sung & Flowers)

true true true

this song is about the struggle to still feel real & worthy as a sick persyn in an ableist society. remember just cause you don’t produce profit for some fool out in a speno car with some billion dollar sneakers or whatever don’t mean that you are not amazing and valuable and beautiful and real. 

- - - - - - - -

I’m Still Real

hands up if society has no use for you

hands up if they treat you like there is no use for you

it always starts with education

cause when they aim to train ya, they do it real patient

they teach us to see each other like trinkets

& if not that than a means to more trinkets

each of us an avatar, another floating gif.

another hologram, enemy or payslip

they pull your teeth & they tell you it’s knowledge

they massage your gums through high school & college 

so if you made it they guts with any fangs left

let me feel you join hands, let me see you draw breath

let me hear you say
 

maybe you don’t see me

but i’m still here

maybe you don’t need me 

but i’m still real


it’s re-enforced with every paycheck

got you addicted to opportunity ain’t worried bout community

cause these coins buy immunity, a place outside yourself

where you can stand to harm each other, blood fertilizes wealth

old wealth, new wealth, secret wealth, false wealth

they want your time, your strength, your mind, your health

but look at you now your skin is loosening

come a time when a boy has to do something

cuz the stars get loster into their own light

& the moon sinks slower and more permanent tonight


maybe you don’t see me

but i’m still here

maybe you don’t need me 

but i’m still real

drop out learn something love yourself love yourself

live on hand me downs like love your wealth love your wealth

make friends not ends but temper with the reason

cuz there ain’t never been a time when it weren’t broke persyns hunting season

if you harmonize with my meaning

I did another interview - this one is handwritten and i was a bit mean about the stereotypical question “does yr illness make you want to create more?” YOLOL

SMT presents: 10 Questions with HTML Flowers

SUPERMEGATREND presents: 10 Questions with HTML Flowers

Regular perusers of SUPERMEGATREND may recognise the name HTML Flowers. He was first brought to my attention as the emcee in the duo Brothers Hand Mirror.  But the truth is there are many strings to Grant Gronewold’s (HTML Flowers) bow.  This Melbournite’s passion for creating has been nurtured since moving to Australia’s cultural hub from the US as a child, seeking better treatment for his Cystic Fibrosis (a topic covered in depth on his tumblr). Now 25, Grant’s gift for writing, art, tattooing and music has begun to come to fruition.Bow down bitches.

SUPERMEGATREND’s ‘10 Questions with’ series aims to capture artists in their own penmanship, rather than editing or hiding their perspective behind a standard font or format. How else are you going to get interviews featuring decorative phalluses? Enough from me, take it away Grant…
