“Informal Paranormal” began as an obscure poem that went through various rewrites before being stripped down to its essential words via the laws of chance (we numbered the verses, then chose random numbers to select the words for the final version).

Zero tells his story, in his own special way: “Insect wings teach me things.”

Trivia: the working title for this track was "Zero Chants in Hell."



Back when this life
Was so sweet and easy
Was it all a dream?
Why am I so queasy?

Losing touch
Has left bitter traces
It’s fully funereal
In another time

Insect wings
Teach me things

With the paranormal
We need to reach back
