about

For more reasons I am willing to speak of, this record should have never come to be. Fate intervened.

credits

released July 9, 2019

Recorded at Capture Sound Studios, Brooklyn, New York between June 2018 and June 2019. Aside from producing and engineering, Charlie Nieland's musical contributions were paramount to the completion of this record. We worked tirelessly to transform this material from its MIDI origins and reverse-engineer dated MP3s.

Mastered by Fred Kevorkian in June of 2019.

Special thanks to Ronan Conroy for lending the ear which led to this project's rebirth.

about

mtf8 New York, New York

mtf8 was started back around 96' and was put to rest in 2006. A series of unexpected events led to the project's rebirth despite losing several years worth of work due to unrecoverable disk drives. mtf8 is not about trying to "make it" or becoming famous. The material is personal and the plan at this time is to release 3 EPs covering the body of work. ... more

Track Name: Rebirth / Regress
I've learned to breathe again
Climbed from that grave I was in
Wind whispers through so clean
Like fairy tales I've dreamed

Moon full, watch over me
Like mother
Like father

Wind whispers through so clean
Like fairy tales I've dreamed
Wind whispers through so clean
Like fairy tales I've never seen

Say a prayer for me
My time has come
My time is done

So I'm waiting on and on
Waiting on and on, and on...

When will finally the day come when all the day becomes fine?
When will finally the day come when all the day becomes mine?
Track Name: Imperfection
Take time
Take lies
Take all that you despise
I can't just wash it all away
Same thing as yesterday

Take time, won't you
Take lies
Take all you criticize
I can't just wash it all away
Same thing as yesterday

And it seems as though everything has shattered apart to nothing
I bleed with remorse
My eyes now see each imperfection
Smothered in this deep, like a last breath I crawl
And out of my mouth comes the sickness of it all

(The way we were, when things were fine)

I can't just wash it all away
It's the same thing
The same thing
The sickness of it all
Track Name: Grotesque
Too much fire inside
Too much pain to feel
Over and over and over again
Ever-spinning wheel
Not another kiss I'm begging of you
Feverish touch, you are an angel far from home

Take my blood
My hands are pinned to walls within
Your eyes, too beautiful to see
Each night shall be a dance in the sun I'll never feel again
A kiss in the rain forever falling
Forever fall

We'll never have time
You'll never understand
All we'll be is fading whispers
Memories of never
Like I've always known
Like I've always said

I know you'll find a way to make me feel again
Taken away into the same dream
I'm taken away into the same dream!

All the time we shared were dreams
Maybe I'll find that sleep again
Maybe I'll find that peace
Maybe I'll find those worlds again
Maybe I'll find that sleep all the time
Track Name: The Things I've Never Seen
I still remember the things you said:

"Come here and take my hand. I'll show you the things you've never seen."

I still remember the things I said:

"Come here and take my hand and show me the things I've never seen."
Track Name: Scars
How long must we stand in the rain?
How long must the shadow of something so unclean remain?

(Not all things can be forgiven)
Much of what we are is defined by what we know; is defined by what we see; is defined by rules
Some broken, others maintained; become tradition
A way to remember where we've been; our private journey
Not all things can be forgotten
Not all things can be forgiven

And in that moment
We live forever
We die forever
Not all things
We die forever
Over and over
Until it's over!
Not all things
Not those things!
Track Name: Grotesque (Drowning Deeper)
"The dream was still vivid; drowning deeper every minute through the darkening water."
