about

Sometimes material vices can seem beneficial. Productivity at the cost of partial autonomy doesn't seem that bad, right? Dependence on unnecessary consumption for self confidence can be cool can't it? Isolated instances are one thing, but as you remain reliant on objects or substances for longer periods of time it becomes much more difficult to function without them, sometimes to the point where you don't even have the clarity to see your addiction unless you're looking at it from your position of temporary satiation. Relearning and rewiring your own mind to overcome this is fucking difficult in itself. I'm making small strives here and there, and as I make those strives I learn more about myself and become more motivated to keep moving forward. I have faith that I can do this, I also have faith that you can do this. We're not alone in our struggles and we can all work toward the mutually beneficial end of general betterment. Supporting others' self progress for the sake of fostering our own extended positive community.

lyrics

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
Regardless that I know it's detrimental

I feel this fluid flowing through my veins
And it may be exactly what it takes
For me to get past this lapse, this peripheral gap
At the cost of my independence

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
Fighting with this synergy
Acting like I'm independent
Redirecting benefit
Towards this moral rift
(spirit pouring through based off of what I consume)

Realigning energy
Realizing my addiction
Conscious of jaded efforts
I attempt change
Yet I still drink

Is there any way
For me to ascend
Anywhere above
My current location

The answer always comes
Deep from my subconscious
A transfer made so neutrally
From the cause itself

I will win, I will find myself
When I win, what will winning help
Questioning, but not giving in
I'll ascend, I'll refute the urge to further

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate

about

Watabou Ann Arbor, Michigan

Watabou is the amalgamation of extensive electronic programming, punishing physical externalization, subconscious realization, and constructive manipulation of myself and my art. It is the peak of my artistic externalization and I hope you understand and enjoy it for what it is. ... more
