I literally dont understand this album at all??
The tales he tells are so specific but I am so affected by them and I relate to quite a few of them.
Why is it almost named after a suicideboyz album?? why is there a cat on the cover like that like walking and shit?? why are the songs so so long?? Why does it work??????? Why does this guy rambling for like 15 minutes at a time work so well??? why do I like this so much????
Its an enigma and I love it
