about

“Enharmonic Intervals”, released under the alias “I Stand Alone”, is a catalog of past auditory transgressions – some cuts date back as far as 1996. Not mastered, poorly mixed and potent as hell. The folly of youth and the awkward transition towards (im)maturity.

This is a split EP, containing the 2006 release "Vicious as Coitus" and a collection of older, unreleased tracks compiled from a decade's worth of sounds.


*
*

Experimental, industrial, electronic, organic noise with a slight melodic core that tries to raise up its head every so often only to be slapped around relentlessly.

Track Name: Vicious as Coitus
vicious as coitus
Track Name: le procès
Sick of it all – mostly myself

With everything gone – with everything gone – with everything gone

How do I know when I’ve lost?



This is what always keeps me awake – the noise of the nothing – the noise of the fake

The noise of disease - the noise of mistakes

In dreams, in dreams – MY DREAMS HAVE DIED – in time, in time – SO HAVE I
Aimed at everything too far away so I stay so ashamed
Everyday it’s the same there’s just too much pain

So hard to believe with all that you’ve seen, when there’s nothing that’s clean

And there’s nothing inside, so there’s nowhere to hide,

So there’s no need for pride, so my ego has died…



Everything is empty, all of us are dead…am I all broken, is it just in my head?



Torn between what I need and what I want…what makes me happy and what gets me off

Letting go and giving in, all the things you could have fucking been

Too hard to believe in just one damn thing, the whole world’s a disease; a whore on its knees

(put your disease in me, make me betray everything)

A better future some might say, a better future, but not today

You would undress with slender, sacred gestures and it would be like a holocaust…
Track Name: Almost, Always and Again
Afraid to commit cause I’m not sure what I want

Afraid to be honest because I’m a fraud

Afraid of myself so I fill up with drugs

Won’t figure it out, I’ll just push it away

Never tell the truth because I’m too afraid


Almost, always and again

Almost, always and again

Almost, always and again

I can live - through you

I will love - through you

I am forced - on you
(What I don’t know proves what I was all along

My religion of lies, my rhythm of self-control)



Almost, always, and again

A DEMON NATION RIOTS IN OUR BRAINS

Almost, always, and again

YOU THINK YOU’RE SMARTER

THAN ALL THE PAIN

Almost, always, and again

THERE IS A HOLE IN THIS APE
Track Name: Divine Comedy
After all the failure I should have learned,
Laugh it off, then move on

But where are you and who am I?

I sit back and think about my great mistake

But I won’t give in and I can’t repent

There is no god with love for this



Long dark night without tears

We make it hell so it feels real



GET AHOLD OF ME, MAKE ME FEEL AGAIN

HELP ME BE SOMEONE I CAN LOVE AGAIN

But you can’t do that, 'cause this is all there is to life

And no one will miss it 'cause no one cares

Invisible monsters, fatal errors



I threw away my fears today, I let my ego die

I broke up all your altars, I smashed up all your lies

Christ walks by, hands out lives

Designer dressing compromise

Death is religion selling us hell

Material gods just buy what you sell

I threw away my fears today, I let my ego die

I threw away my fears today, I let my ego die

I threw away my fears today, I let my ego die
Track Name: Not All of Paradise is Lost
My little lie that’s not complete

This isn’t me, this random poetry

It all looks and acts like a falling world

It all looks and acts just like it should

I trick myself to believe -

- in some form of purity

There’s no such thing, there’s no such thing

This is what I am, this is what is killing me

but with you in my heart I could forget the world

but with you in my heart I could forget the world

Now I’ve got this clever new disguise

It’s a mask of all the lies

I tell myself, I keep inside

Its just enough to get me by



Suffocate in your eyes collapse on your lips

That same old port that’s launched a thousand ships

And the only thing that I want this bad

is the one fucking thing that I’ve never had

So how can I pretend I’m free?

How can I not feel a thing?



Throwing up the memories

Leaving you in tears again



And not all of paradise is lost…

Not all of paradise is lost…

Not all of paradise is lost, etc…
Track Name: I Prefer to be Left in the Background
In a dream I pulled all the white strings

from your trashy heart -

It was cohesive, yet in places, it fell apart



I’ve got this blood; I’ve got this human disease

Push everyone away then wish they’d stayed

Nothing’s right but nothing’s wrong

I live through, I carry on…

You’ll never be someone who understands

Wrap insecurities around your head



Ill-bred disgusting fucking rotten disease

I’ll never let a piece of you back inside of me



Fucking bullshit – fucking world

Fucking people – fucking cold

Fucking broke my fucking soul

I don’t want you anymore
Track Name: closedown
Stitching up all my loose ends

Time to close it down and pack it in

Hiding behind what I’ve left of this heart

Eager for the death of my art

It does not hurt anymore

You mean nothing

You mean nothing, you mean nothing



Shattered like a ghost

Living life on broken glass

This filthy liar’s final collapse

It does not connect anymore

I feel nothing

I feel nothing, I feel nothing



Remember how it ends,

Now begin again

The old hell, the real hell

Hell opened by the hands of man

It does not matter anyway

I mean nothing

I mean nothing, I mean nothing
Track Name: Superficial Supermen, Artificial Souls Worn Thin
To come out the other side, you have to go through

Nowhere, somewhere, anywhere but here

Please won’t it all just fall, make it come apart

How much did you think I’d take, before I gave up, before I’d break.

Always the same, nothing's gonna change

Everything will come around again

The laughable charade of purity

Can’t something make this go away?

Something… had… to end
Track Name: Angelus Errare [grey hat]
Oh, I’m gonna take you; do whatever the fuck I want

Gonna break you down to the nothing that you are

Gonna give you your deepest fucking scar

Gonna make you pray you never were

Gonna fuck you like the whore that you are

Gonna make you denounce your god


I’ve lived through all of this, watched my dreams turn to shit

Ego-centric, empty lies

I wear the hat of compromise

Validate this life for me

I’ve been broken down so leisurely

I never got what you told me I’d get

Why’d you say what you said why’d you do what you did?



Still searching for everything in every wrong place

You aren’t a part of me but you’re a disgrace

An angel of sores with broken dreams for a face



When you suck his cock do you taste my cum?

When he eats your pussy do you feel my tongue?

Try and tell him he's the one you love.

You made a choice, you were wrong, I never knew indifference could last this long.

Push me further
Push me further... down

Oh I’m gonna take you, do whatever the fuck I want
Gonna break you down to the nothing you’ve become
Track Name: Well Oiled Farce
Nice cool sheets

Your leg on the sink while you’re brushing your teeth

Everything I want to say has already been said

Your little speaker my only friend

You were always there to push me aside

All I want is to leave all of that behind



Break me up a little more, there’s still a piece that’s almost whole

You don’t know me, you never did

It’s still that night in my head

It’s a mystery, locked up inside of me

It’s a part you’ll never see

I made you who you are, fuck you, I’m still alive



Fuck you I don’t want you

Fuck you I don’t need you

I fuck you, I don’t love you

Fuck you I won’t be there

Fuck you I don’t want you

Fuck you I don’t need you

Fuck you I don’t love you

Fuck you I won’t be there

Fuck you I don’t want you

Fuck you I don’t need you

Fuck you I don’t love you

Fuck you I won’t be there

You fuck I can’t believe you

Fuck you I don’t want you

Fuck you I don’t need you

Fuck you I don’t love you

Fuck you I won’t be there

Fuck you I don’t want you

Fuck you I don’t need you

Fuck you I won’t be there

Fuck you I don’t love you

Fuck you I don’t want you

Fuck you I don’t need you

Fuck you I won’t be there

Fuck you I don’t want you

Fuck you I’ll forget you

Fuck you I’ll forget you

Fuck you I’ll forget you

Fuck you I’ll forget you

Fuck you I’ll leave you

Fuck you I don’t love you

Fuck you I don’t need you

Fuck you I won’t be there

Fuck you I’ll forget you

Fuck you

I’ll forget you
Track Name: Mindset
How does it feel, to have it all inside you?

You have to tell, to help reveal, how to put it all behind you

Nothing but cigarettes, and dried up cum

Tiny scrapes and clotted blood

Black stocking burn holes, mascara cried clean

Mercy for the weak is not what it seems

Everything is broken, even when it’s new

Everything means something, everything but you.



I’m barely squeezing the lies out fast enough

I don’t want to die, I just want the pain to stop

I’m barely squeezing the lies out fast enough

I don’t want to die, I just want the pain to stop



Blurred out of focus, distorted dream

Things are exactly as they seem

Simulated surroundings, simulated life

Just enough skin to hold the knife

I’m not sorry, no regrets, this... is what…

you... should get
Track Name: Fuck the Process
Tempt me with your pussy

A way to sell your soul



Don’t you want to buy it?

Don’t you want to cum inside it?



Fuck the process
Track Name: The Point Is...
I think it’s beginning, no it’s done

When can I give up?

When will it be gone?

If the worlds a stage, our bodies are props, inside out and all used up

Who am I when you’re all gone?

Been promised futures so we slave on

And the music will stop… but it will start again

Suffocating each and every day

I’m not inspired by anything anymore anyway
Track Name: KTCFKM [failed so many times]
Draw me a picture of a fall-out shelter as the world goes to pieces

Break on down and give right in

Raised for nothing, born to end

Everyone’s out for their pound of flesh, call it ambition, call it a sickness



Draw me a picture of a fall-out shelter

Watch the world collapse

So sick of this place

Can’t stand this life

What’s to believe in when nobody is right?

The insides betray, the outsides lie

I’ve failed so many times I’m afraid to try

The insides betray, the outsides lie

I’ve failed so many times.


Oh, you might be crazy - but I'm not impressed.
Hammers and saws, you're just like the rest.
Track Name: Angelus Errare [pleonexia]
Oh, I’m gonna take you; do whatever the fuck I want

Gonna break you down to the nothing that you are

Gonna give you your deepest fucking scar

Gonna make you pray you never were

Gonna fuck you like the whore that you are

Gonna make you denounce your god


I’ve lived through all of this, watched my dreams turn to shit

Ego-centric, empty lies

I wear the hat of compromise

Validate this life for me

I’ve been broken down so leisurely

I never got what you told me I’d get

Why’d you say what you said why’d you do what you did?



Still searching for everything in every wrong place

You aren’t a part of me but you’re a disgrace

An angel of sores with broken dreams for a face



When you suck his cock do you taste my cum?

When he eats your pussy do you feel my tongue?

Try and tell him he's the one you love.

You made a choice, you were wrong, I never knew indifference could last this long.

Push me further
Push me further... down

Oh I’m gonna take you, do whatever the fuck I want
Gonna break you down to the nothing you’ve become
Track Name: A Simple Tribute to Abuse
Afraid to commit cause I’m not sure what I want

Afraid to be honest because I’m a fraud

Afraid of myself so I fill up with drugs

Won’t figure it out, I’ll just push it away

Never tell the truth because I’m too afraid


Almost, always and again

Almost, always and again

Almost, always and again

I can live - through you

I will love - through you

I am forced - on you
(What I don’t know proves what I was all along

My religion of lies, my rhythm of self-control)



Almost, always, and again

A DEMON NATION RIOTS IN OUR BRAINS

Almost, always, and again

YOU THINK YOU’RE SMARTER

THAN ALL THE PAIN

Almost, always, and again

THERE IS A HOLE IN THIS APE
