Zero’s got the blues. He’s been “on the other side” for an undetermined amount of time. He is losing his grip. Things that were once strange and repelling have become normal and commonplace.


It’s been so long
I can’t remember
How long has it been?
Serendipity is taking
My heart for a spin
Don’t remember anything
Or who I used to be
Been gone so long
That goddamn knows
It feels like forever to me

Disappearing memories fade
Into a great abyss
Garbage in, garbage out
Give us an insect kiss
Reminiscing of a time
That I don’t recollect
Mystery is calling
So I place my calls collect

Been so long
I can’t remember
How I used to look
Short and fat or tall and thin
Straight-laced or off the hook
Memory is fickle
Mind plays tricks on me
Garbage in, garbage out
This one plays for free

Disappearing memories fade
Into a great abyss
Garbage in, garbage out
Give us an insect kiss

Zero here reporting from dimensions off the map
Found my voice then lost it in the trees that drip the sap
It’s cold as hell I might as well curl up with a witch’s tit
Got this GPS but goddammit that don’t work for shit

My heart is feeling heavy as a sack of sod and bricks
My mind is working overtime, hallucinating tricks
But this shit’s real and all I feel is numb from head to shoes
Garbage in garbage out, got the head-and-thorax blues
