    Second, you can now pre-order the BILL album! We're offering it on vinyl, CD, and as a digital download, of course. There are even a handful of extra special bundles available, in which you can get a handmade skinny necktie made by Buick herself (she has a line of ties called B. Arson Neckwear) and a copy of the album on CD or vinyl. 

    ALBUM: BANDCAMP // ITUNES // AMAZON

    On "HORRIFY":
    We destroy that which we love; it sometimes feels safer than the alternative. But tearing down another person or a relationship also tears down part of the self. It’s a temporary fix for a bigger problem. We’d be wise to look inward instead of at the faults of others, but where’s the fun in that? In short: friendship is hard.

    Thanks for your support!

    HORRIFY

    I’ll show you orphans sleeping on pavement
    I’ll show you hopeless human arrangements
    I’ll show you lands with no leaders - but laws against reform
    still, I’m a monster, or so you have stated

    are you horrified?
    tell me again
    are you horrified?
    tell me all about the different lie you’re living with this time

    one epidemic gave birth unto another
    the child who struggled to thrive became a mother
    then all the factors collide to rob the childhood from the child
    still, you insist that I’m the enemy, the other

    give me a rag to wash the makeup off my face
    take off my costume, let me stand here in my place
    I’m just a person in need of basic decency and grace
    still, you reject me!
    you say I’m not the same

    are you horrified?
    tell me again
    are you horrified?
    tell me all about the different life you’re living in this time
    and this: are you are horrified?

    if I were dying, you could love me
    but I’m living, so you can’t
    if I were dying, you could love me
    but I’m living, so you can’t
    if I were dying, you could love me
    but I’m living, so you can’t
    if I were dying, you could love me
    but you can’t

    are you horrified?
    tell me again
    are you horrified?
    tell me all about the different ways you’re winning at this life
    and this: are you horrified?
    tell me again
    are you horrified?
