19 excursions into the mind at rest by mr_mark_dollin.

This album is the second in the Dream Diagrams Series. Most of the music was written quickly using dream intuition, often in a very sleepy state. I would try the best I could to stream-of-conscious the music into the computer, mostly using early versions of Renoise at roughly 1020m above sea level. The time was unsettled and stressed, being the final years of my university degree and my college residence. There was much unexplored anxiety over not knowing how to face the approaching terror of a high school teaching career I didn’t want to do. Study burnout was a problem too, as well as mounting insanities from living in a boxed inwardly-focused social environment. All these tensions worked their way into the music you hear now.

released August 1, 2004

Everything on this album was created by myself, except Track 5 (If Not When) and the first movement of Track 6 (Altitude Aria), both by myself and Ryan Sanders. All words and images by me. Work began late 2002 (The West Room, Armidale), mostly in 2003 (The Lighthouse, Armidale), and a little in 2004 (Taree), ending on the 20th of August. Album remastered by me at the CreamPuff, August 2011, Armidale.

During the entire process there was a significant amount of engineering advice from Simon Floth, as well as musical advice and feedback from Jarrad Cousin and Clinton Moore. And, the vocal for “Sleep is God” could not have been possible without the tuition from Naomi Leago.

Track Name: Control
She destroys you / He destroys you / You destroy you / Let go / Let go.
Track Name: I Love You And I Love Your Needles
I love you / And I love your needles / I love your needles / The laughing ugly void / Transpiration like a droid / I'll destroy myself for this / And get drunk off the political kiss / This system you know is drunk / But ignorance no one would have thunk / The people will be lost in the hiss / Any sense of clarity they will miss / Apparent patterns drugged into beats / Leaving the conscious to perform their feats / All so consumed by our deficiencies / We marvel at the lack of our proficiencies / And grind until we are nothing / Idiotic silence is all that we will sing / For I can't function as an organ / In a society atrophied in boredom.
Track Name: Song For The Modern World
All your structure / All your greed / All your filth / All your rationalism / All your systematic behaviour / All your destruction / All your corporations / All your bureaucracy / All your conformity / All your normalisation / All your money / All your deforestation / All your pollution / All your politics / All your ideology / All your technocrats / All your pornography / All your corruption / All your decay / All your decay / All your decay...
Track Name: Techy or Reality Skewed Into Tiny Fragments
Annihilation comes in the strangest ways because often you are walking in the moment where you are watching yourself follow that direction because you need to go south but that does not matter because your legs do not move fast enough and the river water is warm and there is always indication in the sway of the trees that it is afternoon in the dim light of a staircase that goes nowhere / I see me / As well as you and I think I will follow you because it feels good like diving in warm water and playing every note perfect like Scott saying something he's speaking and I can't hear his voice so I rub my eyes oh no not again get back on the highway or we'll never get to Sydney.
Track Name: Mount Bogong
I can't really hear myself / I'll just have to sit here and kind of and get it for you / See what I come up with / I don't know if it's pristine but it's here / And every way you look it's there / And in my dreams / I skirt around the edge / And always place things that aren't really there / And you go up and down / And walk it through / Try and imagine what it's like / But I'd rather be there than anywhere else / Away from your control / And most importantly away from my control / And learn to recognise the moment / And let go / And let go / You drive and drive for hours / You can't help but notice it / The trees are beautiful / And I wish I didn't feel sick
Track Name: Mount Hotham
Falling... / Falling... / Fall...
Track Name: Depressed
I will find a way / Out of today.

Why didn't he see it this way? / Kiss the early morning hello / From moment to moment / The top of the mountain is just over there- / Hey.
Track Name: My Heart Beats Only For You
Oh yeah / Oh...
Track Name: Electronic Rural Sunshower
This is a topographical map / It shows an area we wish to annihilate / Via the development of powerful technology / Acquisition of the rights to increase fees and upfront payments / And finally the neglect of irrational human behaviours such as love and compassion / Yuck! / Like sure you would be such an anti-modernist / We have a strong desire to take over natural geo... natural geographic... natural geography / In order to make is more efficient and profitable / People with have credit cards and other assorted things / Free agent / Womb / Ducks waiting on a pond surface / Cleaning shoes plus good manners / This is your machine / You use it periodically to cleanse your thoughts of irrational / Thinking / Such as feelings and opinions / These people from the other country have called it the De-DeluderTM / And make sure you give us all your money / And I'm not telling anybody about my secret plan / To steal all the rational thoughts for myself / Cause I forgot what's on the teve / And it's my shout for drinks / They develop until they are really good / And then everyone had one / And this is until thems who introduce fee paying student scenes and drinks / Empty for answers / The duration of simple features / If we put words on the page then the people will be happy / Because baby that's why we're elected: We keep the people happy / Horace and Timmy knew they we're pretty bad at being Indians / So they took up the art of being sales-representatives and assorted interpretations of nude tuppaware and parliamentary cake feeds / My mum on happy happy / This is a piano that tells you naughty words / Homework / A very nasty dictator who owns 85% of your brain / And by the way is that the bit you never use? / Like everybody else? / Ha! / Guilty complex yet again / Evil syntax / There's no justification in agency or terminology / And don't worry / As we fill it up and tell mum it's alright - we're going home / We're going home / Interstate migration - we're on the move / Now children I hope you have a very happy birthday / And you've got to fill your desire within to make your narrative seem complete / So grab that girl next to you and fuck fuck fuck until she has luurved you all alone / And you go away / And you're out of your life / And you're allowed to laugh now / Nrr how stupid is email? / And family reunion / We don't think / We just buy / And there are always words on the page / Words on the page / There are always words on the page / There are always / Words on the page.
Track Name: Sleep Is God
You think you know death / You're so big and strong / So many close times / Where you've stood true / You know when the time comes / You'll face it head on / Heroism will get you through / No matter what the cost / But you don't know death / You're only strong against the pain / You don't know like I do / Dying every day / Every arvo around 2pm / My consciousness is gone / In complete desperate fear / I truly know death because / In feeble submission / I become nothing / As I stare into the hole / Of gaping annihilation / I die like clockwork / I'm chipping away slow / At my sad remaining self / Replacing it with nothingness / There's no need to fist / My body into submission / Brawn counts for nothing / When you're fast asleep / The great equalizer / Is my eternal king / As I wither into bed / I bow down to god. / SLEEP IS GOD... / Sleep... is god... / So sleepy...
Track Name: Absolutely Doomed
I can't really hear myself / I'll just have to sit here and kind of and get it for you / See what I come up with / I don't know if it's pristine but it's here / And every way you look it's there / And in my dreams / I skirt around the edge / And always place things that aren't really there / And you go up and down / And walk it through / Try and imagine what it's like / But I'd rather be there than anywhere else / Away from your control / And most importantly away from my control / And learn to recognise the moment / And let go / And let go / You drive and drive for hours / You can't help but notice it / The trees are beautiful / And I wish I didn't feel sick
