about

This has been a work in progress for about 2 years starting in 2015. Where I decided that I was going to make album that appealed more to a general public, including those who are less diverse in their musical journey, while still trying to maintain songs that I myself find musically satisfying. The following is a result of that ambition.

Since 2 years have passed, I have continuously reworked or scrapped entirely songs that I had written.

I hope you all enjoy these songs, I worked hard to bring you guys a really nicely produced and well balanced breakfast of musical munchies.

Post Elvis was started in 2015 by myself, The name comes from an obvious reference to Elvis Presley, but there isn't really an homage to Mr. Presley anywhere, and you wont find one either. The name is an homage to the era and the type of society where I am currently growing up in. An era of endless references, a dead pop cultural graveyard left for us to inspect.

Post Elvis is just that, the art zombie that comes alive in the 21st century.

my aim in life has always been to be as original and unique as possible, and I think that with Post Elvis, It's something that I hope the world hasn't seen before, and by doing so opening the possibilities and encouraging other artists.

nothing more, and nothing less.

I hope you all enjoy my project.

Thank you So much

Track Name: Some Say That They Think He's Still Alive
I have heard that friends are feilds
and I've heard that it's hard to be real

My senses overflow with grief
and I'm dead

I'm simply not the one, any more

and to those that try

I will say

that some say that they think he's still alive

Oh yeah

Some think he's alive

but it's not the truth

It's a lie

Oh yeah, It's a lie

so I say to you

and I say to you

To please, please

let him be.
Track Name: Brain Powers
Neglect the ideologies and then profit from the panic
people Shout against themselves in a total shouting manic

the left is but a shadow of it’s honest former self
the carcass left out bleeding and left foaming at the mouth

constant hate and constant hate keeps building from below so when
oppression starts when you start thinking thoughts just like you know.

Ah ah ah that's how you say that I’m smart and opinionated
leave out things like logic and then leave them isolated

They’ll never guess, they’ll never guess that you’re the actual fascists
while you program intros anarchy like total fucking sadists

Leave the power in application
whine that you’re not half the nation

There are brain powers
stuck on local dial while
choosing yellow flowers
deactivate the commune
and replay the Cyber terrorist
stash your hopes inside a dune
and help the backwards rhetoric


There are brain powers
stuck on local dial while
choosing yellow flowers
deactivate the commune
and replay the Cyber terrorism
stash your hopes inside a dune
and help the backwards errorism

There are brain powers

Forging from the napalm blasts
and left out of the simpsons gag
drone your cities like sun O
under place your local code

figure out the final fate
of those who underestimate

the fleeting glimpse of
freedom’s gate
is only temporary haste

find your chariot of fire
dipped in wax and slime perspire
photo synthesize the moog
re place without changing mood

find the peace among the monks
who lay down psychedellic funk
The man of steel was a lie
and took us for a single ride

crown the sarge who was in charge
that dropped the bomb away with kong
and if I had a way with words
please let them know what you heard
Track Name: All The Old Data
oh what a time to die
the man on the moon had cried
I see the neon signs
I wipe my tears with the grime

And even though I see you in my dreams
the walls are caving in and means that I don't think
where does all the old data roam?

I
I know they're there
the CPU shows in dust in despair
I wish I was there to care

even though I see you in my dreams
the walls are caving, and it don't think

where does all the old data roam
Track Name: Roboto
Please go lay down the funk
never find that and you’re feeling stuck
start riding and I feel the sun
start dying and I need to run
fix yourself a cup of coffee
Nevermind that you had to serve me
slice your neuron chords in half
these things were never meant to last


please tell me that you are a robot oh!

Stop the sun and
bleed the planets
Cosmos entity
and ban it’s
energy from flowing rad hits
stop yourself from being sad it’s
Nine to five on monday night
it’s 5 to nine with sunday flights
I forgot my place in time
please leave while my head is mine
Track Name: JAPAN
If I knew the Place
I would not be here right now

and if I had the chance
I would disappear right

because I
Don't feel in japan

and I don't feel in japan

city spaces and bright lights flash
I close my eyes for them
I escape from them
I know
Track Name: Breakfast In Uganda (Incognito man)
Seven Shackle city with a sword
and I feel the lord
binding up my time like some honorary grime
Seagulls starts start to fall like the flies in the heaven
and the spies in the city turn to fire in the Seven

Enigmatic prophets when they turn a blind eye
to the proper vessels screaming in the tower sky high
forget the all intentions of the super static coda
and form a tiny circle made of monetary quota

So I’d like to be
and I’d like to be an

Incognito Man, I’d like to be an Incognito man
I’d like to be an Incognito man
Living in the city to not feel the land

Breakfast in Uganda
I’m feeling like nothing’s on ya!
Please just let me know
please just let me know, I don’t care.


The angels in the city start an ever growing riot
while the anger in the heart is contemplating quiet
the shut in’s that were present have become the all forgiving,
while the operators forgot things that were the past or living

The feeling in the city that were always lone and vacant
proper focus on their eyes stopping brains, starting breaking
the news inside the box heralds happiness and freedom
the world as they know it left behind full a eden
Track Name: Feeling Bad Feelings
A voice came out of the door
he said to me, get up off the floor
I sicking in, and i take my pills out of my bag
I'm checking in, checking out, and checking sure that you're doing just alright

because
I'm just feeling bad
I'm just feeling bad thoughts
I'm just feeling bad feelings

and you know, that it's true
that people,see you as you
and it might frighten you at first
and it might scare to bones
but be still and it will pass
these feelings were never meant to last
Track Name: Kirby's Nightmare in Chiptune
There is a change
a change just like the future

there is a change
one too big for anybody else and I know why

I know why

so please take me away from here

take my brain and put in a plastic bag
and take my heart and put it in a surgeons box
and take the box and please take it away from me
and take the bag and put it somewhere safe for me at all

I know why

so please take me away from here
Track Name: Lone
The heat of morning is now getting to me
my bed is now sitting on fire and gloomy
time to crawl out and so sue me
holes of my life and the world has consumed me

and it’s not enough, it’s not never not enough

The fourth dimension crawls in and I’m seeing my reflection
the thoughts of life run through my veins and all of it’s perplextions
there’s no hope for me because I’m seeing myself

I am now seeing the world for myself and it scares me
I am now seeing myself for the first time and I just hate myself
and I hope you understand

and I know, and I know I wish I wasn’t a coward
and I know, and I know you love me too
and I know, that things aren’t quite alright now
and I know. And I know I wish I wasn’t a coward
Track Name: Someday In the Rain (Go Slow)
I'm living in a post apocalypse
not much lived and experience
but times comes
for me to say good bye
so when I go
please don't follow me from behind

SO GO SLOW

I'll be right here where I always am

Because eventually we will all have to go

there's no questioning the interior motives of life
The Words are coming back to me
Back to me
Back to me oh yeah

And nothing will compare to the life that I once knew
If there's a spot in heaven, I'd give it all to you
There's nothing left to say, I just haven't had a clue
that's what it means to me, I hope that's what it means to you
to go slow
to be dreaming, like a king
to be a robot in withdrawal

and the window that I stood at wasn't seeing anything
The room that I was standing at just happened to be free
a white noise made a wimper
and the sun had just gone down
I think I might've understood, if I wasn't so down
to go slow
