  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    IMPORTANT! THIS IS A PRE-ORDER. Because big labels are gobbling up all the vinyl out there, we won't get these records in hand until FEBRUARY 2023. Yes, you read right: 2 0 2 3 ! We apologize for the delay but also can't control the vinyl market and the demand for this kind of product. We are just an independent band, so we have to take what we can get. And that's February 2023.

    About the pictures:
    Since we don't have the vinyls in hand I posted pics of the cover art, the 4 panel design layout, and the vinyl print (the part in the middle of the record). The record itself is "color" in crystal clear (I guess that's some kind of symbolism, I'll leave the interpretation to you).


    Product Details:
    33 rpm 12" 180 gram virgin vinyl in CRYSTAL CLEAR (you can see through the record - it's cool) with full color label printing. Full color, 4 panel gate fold jacket with white inner sleeve. Record inside polybags and shipped in sturdy vinyl mailers. Vinyl manufactured in the Czech Republic with everything else done by the legendary Pirate's Press. This is the company that did the last record and their attention to detail is top notch.

    Signed on request.

    Also, we ship via United States Postal Service, and believe it or not this is absolutely the most cost effective way to ship - we are NOT making money off of shipping. Actually, it's not atypical for us to lose a dollar or two when shipping internationally. Shipped in sturdy corrugated vinyl mailers. We have only ever had one record be damaged in all of our shipping history, and that person of course received a full refund. Remember, you are dealing directly with the artist and not some scumbag label. So if there is a problem, JP deals with it directly!

Heavy 04:11
It’s getting heavy It’s getting heavy It’s getting heavy It’s getting heavy They want it all Turn you out Skin you raw You’re done A shadow of your former self A husk For what? Dragging the world By a chain Up a hill Get through the pain Hoping I find Through the grind A way To sustain It’s getting heavy It’s getting heavy It’s getting heavy It’s getting heavy They want nothing But everything Every day You wanna resist Push away But you don’t wanna pay Step by step A living wreck Can’t connect No more Hoping I find Myself Alive After this war It’s getting heavy It’s getting heavy It’s getting heavy It’s getting heavy Pressure Weight pressing down On my chest But I can’t rest It’s getting heavy It’s getting heavy It’s getting heavy It’s getting heavy Pressure

Ich sage fick dich Ich sage fick dich I Wanna settle a bet Let you back in my head Let you do it all over again Setzt dich, sei doch still. Nicht wissen, was man will. Ich fühle mich ganz verrückt, liebeskrank, völlig kaputt.
 I Wanna settle the score Can’t give any more pick myself up off the floor You don’t know when to stop (No!) You don’t know when to stop (No!) I’m here to settle the score Fuck you! Take your time, think it over But there won’t be no counteroffer Face to face, getting closer Feel the minutes getting shorter Ich sage fick dich This is my proposal for you Ich sage fick dich A stone cold fuck you Was ist los mit dir? 
Du spinnst, für immer. 
 Dein Kern ist illegal.
 Es ist mir scheiß egal
 I Wanna straighten the books Call out all you took Gonna make you look at everything you’ve done You don’t know when to stop (No!) You don’t know when to stop (No!) I’m here to settle the score Fuck you! Take your time, think it over But there won’t be no counteroffer Face to face, getting closer Feel the minutes getting shorter Ich sage fick dich This is my proposal for you Ich sage fick dich A stone cold fuck you Wir sind ziemlich allein. Vor Angst überwältig sein. In Gedanken verloren.
Zärtlichkeit ist gestorben. You don’t know when to stop (No!) You don’t know when to stop (No!) I’m here to settle the score Fuck you! Take your time, think it over But there won’t be no counteroffer Face to face, getting closer Feel the minutes getting shorter This is my proposal for you This is my proposal for you Ich sage fick dich This is my proposal for you Ich sage fick dich A stone cold fuck you Ich sage fick dich This is my proposal for you Ich sage fick dich A stone cold fuck you

Nostromo 04:04
Sleepwalking the Nostromo Walking in a loop down endless corridors Awaken to a shadow cast across the floor If I try and run, will I reach the door? Cannot escape A cursed vessel, echoes with the memories, machine bleeding energy On every level, ghosts frozen in time, I’m living like I’m… Sleepwalking the Nostromo Walking in a loop down endless corridors Awaken to a shadow cast across the floor If I try and run, will I reach the door? It’s not intentional, I’m just another prisoner, we can feel but cannot see each other It’s diabolical, and at the same time sublime, I’m living like I’m… Sleepwalking the Nostromo Walking in a loop down endless corridors Awaken to a shadow cast across the floor If I try and run, will I reach the door? It’s subliminal, a message buried in whispers, apocalypse for beginners It’s a ritual, generational rhyme, I’m living like I’m… Sleepwalking the Nostromo Walking in a loop down endless corridors Awaken to a shadow cast across the floor If I try and run, will I reach the door? Cannot escape

Love is Hell 04:45
They talk about it like its instinct Find your refuge in the other’s embrace Hand in hand like our souls are linked One heart, one mind, that can’t break, yeah…right Lose my self Wretched ego world, every thought burns Still, I retain the being Born of a gift but fragile Always two of our selves are seeing One blinded by denial Are we going far away? I’ll fall forever to you Are you going to fall away? I’ll fall forever to you Maybe I’m perfectionist Gotta get everything right on the first try (first try) Or maybe I’m simply just a masochist Looking for adversity were none exists Awaken to the cold dark horror I gazed into the abyss A pale light in the distance Are we going far away? I’ll fall forever to you Are you going to fall away? I’ll fall forever to you This is one that hurts A patient reminder that there’s more Then the cold sting and burn Of the price we pay for all we’ve learned Love and death, my first and last breath Love is hell! Are we going far away? I’ll fall forever to you Are you going to fall away? I’ll fall forever to you

The Grind 03:46
Grow with it, own it I should have written it down Or just don’t roll with it I guess it’s fucked up now Don’t miss it, don’t live it But I drag it around a splinter in my mind I Keep on living the grind Manic Monday, wanna make it go away Tuesday, fascist, I wanna disobey Wednesday like a never-ending stairway Thursday, Friday, everyday a hell day Weekend, pretend, like I’m twenty Relive golden age of plenty Weeks fly by, I’m bleeding time No way out, I live the grind Hustle Forget your needs Hands up Down on your knees Glorified You think you want it Justified I’ll sell you on it We won’t back down And let you bury us Underground, we will break free Who can stop this? Nobody Hustle Forget your needs Hands up Down on your knees Glorified You think you want it Justified I’ll sell you on it When the chaos does recede And a fresh calm falls on the scene I think about all the empty vessels I occupied today Manic Monday, feels like a rerun Tuesday, too much, never gonna get it done Wednesday, maybe shouldn’t have woken up Thursday, Friday, startin’ to not give a fuck

Bodies 04:38
Bodies ride the wave Somebody gonna have to pay Bodies Living on the shore in their sandcastles Bodies Sea is getting rough and the walls rattle Bodies Come with the tide No where left to hide Bodies Bodies A thousand thoughts ride the waves Can’t save nobody, I’m too late Bodies No one cares about the coming last battle Bodies Waves crashing down and the ocean swallows Bodies Bodies Bodies On the shore living in sandcastles No one cares about the coming last battle Sea is getting rough and the walls rattle Waves crashing down and the ocean swallows Bodies Waves crashing down and the ocean swallows Bodies
7.
If we start at the beginning We’ll only get lost We’ve told ourselves so many stories And failed to calculate the cost These lies belongs to us We raised them from the earth Hidden by a masterful performance So no one could observe Written in our blood, this contract We had to survive On the scraps left to us It wasn’t ours to decide What life meant to us So let’s start at the end Sober from the fountain of youth The wounds may never mend Still, I wanna drink the truth We had to survive On the scraps left to us It wasn’t ours to decide What life meant to us All the stained glass losing its color Praetorian Aureole Two people stare through a crystal barrier Agnus Dei Wasting Away A self-delusion in decay
8.
I’m in driving in our car The rear view is black Cuz I’m not going back We’ve come to far I’m chasing something that’s ahead A shadowland Inside my head And it’s getting near I had a vision Driving east Across the wastelands I met the beast I’m fleeing the scene But taking myself with me Stuck in-between Life and a dream Faith Meet you at the Mending Wall Reach for me before I fall Rabbit out of hiding Rabbit out of hiding Fight or flight or maybe freeze Decision fatigue Drowning all my needs I can’t hear me I have a mission Far away It’s a decision To live another day Faith Meet you at the Mending Wall Reach for me before I fall Rabbit out of hiding Rabbit out of hiding Stones will fall Barren ground Rains beats down Meet you at the Mending Wall Will fall Barren ground Rains beats down Meet you at the Mending Wall Meet you at the mending wall

We all see it coming It’s an apocalypse for beginners We all see it coming It’s an apocalypse for beginners Photo-real dreams Unseeing what we’ve seen Disassemble our belief just another timeline in the grand scheme We’re all in the running To be the first to jump off the cliff Inching closer, don’t look down Etch a smile across that frown Think it’s quiet when you know it’s loud can’t see the storm with our head in the clouds Are we just gonna let it happen Give in to the old pattern So obvious, a child could discern Like an apocalypse for beginners We know what we’ve been summoning There is a mirror in every room Reject the reflection Ignore the growing tension Refuse any lesson Attack any mention

about

3 of these tracks were previously released, but these tracks have been updated since they were put out as singles to sound better and so that the whole album sounds more consistent.

It's hard to describe how hard we worked on this album and the sort of sacrifices we have made to put it out. This is our hearts and souls laid bare. We couldn't do this without YOU. Every track and piece of merch you buy keeps us going and making music. We have so much gratitude for your support. I know it's cliche to say this these days, but we are nothing without YOU. Rabbit Junkie love is the best love!
