Jackie Gillott So nice. Sometimes when I’m sad I’ll drive through the ag fields & blast this with the windows down. Fits any situation. Every element makes me smile. I listen when I’m in the shower, making a sandwich, or golfing. What would make this even better is seeing Nayra perform live! It’s possible if in Tacoma !!! Jack’s score-10/10 YES

Track Name: big car
the big car vibrates under my foot
I hear it when the music stops
being a child in a big car is like waiting three months to see your best friend
time is moving slow
longing the feeling of something more
until the big car stops and finally arrives
to the place that it's been going the entire time

you can wait for the day that it comes to a stop

the big car, it's an illusion to me
I didn't hear anything
being a child in a big world means learning to move with the flow of the cycle
give up your control
just let it go

you can wait for the day that it comes to a stop
Track Name: summer of 17
wake up early just to talk to you
it's a simple little thing that I can't seem to do
coexist in the same room
it's a simple little thing that we don't want to do

the mistake of wearing shorts on a summer night
that's when the bugs like to come out and bit
the mistake of putting trust in another life
that's when you learn that things don't turn out right

and the cancer grows under my tongue
and I feel it grow with every puff

just give it time to stabilize
the serotonin in your brain will make you go insane
just give it time to stabilize
the serotonin in your brain will make you feel the same
Track Name: fetal
her whole life she performed for nobody
an imaginary audience
it only makes sense to her
she's a star in her world

everyone else is her toy
that she'll play with until they have no use anymore

she'll perform for you
even if you never asked her to
