released November 15, 2016

"The lyricism is often as fractured as the cultural psyche, sliced up even more by the sharp-edged noise created by the four-piece’s instruments. It’s perhaps disturbingly and unpredictably timely, but the questions of identity raised in the music’s heavy atmosphere are oddly cathartic, like laughing at your own failures"
Ben Kaye // CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND

Recorded Summer 2016 by Ganser at Redshift Studio.

All songs written & performed by Ganser.

Track Name: Pyrrhic Victory
You always moved
as if people were watching you
Always at your best
Oh to be used
Oh to be kept

Failures disguised as success
Failures disguised as success
Success

A chance meeting
A chance of regret
Regret
A show of weakness
A chance to forget
Let me forget

You like only
what I dislike in me
This mess you’re in
to be seen
and heard

In case you trust
Track Name: (what are you doing here?)

Track Name: Machine Men
500 miles of saline
Sterile, washed clean
Body tread pull in
Memory she
tastes like water
All iron and sugar

Can we help it, make it feel almost real
Short sights, closed minds
Sun bleached
burnt in
Tough hands and
Thin skinned

(Pain in my heart )
Mourn a life we never got
I'm here but I'm not staying
Too good for this world
It's all radio airplanes
Machine men
Machine brains

Can we help it, make it feel almost real
Short sights closed minds
Sweet speak
Lay in
Soft hands and
Thick skinned

Sick like Fever
Warm as ever
Shiver

Oh no, oh no
I know, I know
Oh
No

Can we help it, make it feel almost real
Track Name: Candor
What a difference a day makes
I’m stupid to be scared,
It’s stupid to be scared,
So good to be scared

Show your hand, sure you can
Paid off in a show of hands

It’s time you stopped living
and start worrying,
start worrying,
start worrying

A surplus of money and deficit of taste
Oh it’s just the worst,
just the worst,
just the fucking worst

Did you forget?
Oh, forget it
You don’t get it
Forget me now

don’t forget anything ever
don’t forget anything ever
don’t forget anything ever
don’t forget anything ever
Track Name: Strategies for Living
There seems to be a way I can’t shake it I’m distracted at best and–
I’m doing the best I can.

There is no why.

Sunday night panic,
Thursday’s a lost cause.
It soothes you, the weight of it all.
We said that we’d return.
Well, clearly, we lied.
Now we’re here lying, wondering why.


A desire to feel no desire,
a reason not found.
Over or under;
the same, after all.
Give me some good news.
Give me it all.
Just a little bit longer,
there is no why.

It soothes you, consumes you.
The crush of it all.
