Bersain With the release of 2015's Ekzodia, it was evident Pink Pots was full of potential that was just waiting to fully manifest itself and The Life and Times Forthcoming sees that promise come to life. One of my favorite albums of 2016

about

Everything by me. Credits provided in the tracks.

Special thanks to my family, the Weddington High 2015-2016 year, various music peoples, and the Charlotte music scene for kind of getting me in it and for letting me play and get into venues right before they were being torn down. Thanks to others in the state for hosting shows and being cool people. Thanks to all of the people that decided to show up to our shows and put up with our bullshit. Thanks to three friends for playing what I write with me. Thanks to the forum and those I got to be friends with from it.

This summer was crazy. I hope it's only the beginning, though.

Shipping and returns

Track Name: Hearse
Eroded rock falls and falls
Incertitude comes and goes
I can't go back and change mistakes
I can't go back when we're moving forward

I acknowledge patterns with human beings
Social circles fracture and expire
After individuals end up in hearses
Funerals in churches
Not a mortal will remember in a century or so
Track Name: Goodbye Childhood
There's no more pretending, goodbye childhood
And now I have to kiss myself asleep, goodbye childhood
Goodbye childhood
The transition was never clear, but goodbye childhood
There was never a good time to start, goodbye childhood
Goodbye childhood

If all the world's a stage, then where's my creative control?
When I was younger, I thought it was supposed to be fun to forwards to
It never turned out to be (x4)

It's time to get a job, goodbye childhood
We're coming out to get you and your creativity, goodbye childhood
Goodbye childhood
Track Name: Industrialization
I wanna sleep
I wanna breathe open air in an open community
I wanna stay away from everything
But you keep these people coming

I'm gonna sleep
And you're gonna build all of these things
And I'm gonna go away
I'm too young for change
I've only lived here for four years
And already you're ruining it

I wanna sleep
I wanna slumber (x4)
Track Name: Life Reap
Nothing is working
Everything is falling apart
You never took your chances
You've neglected a brand new, fresh start
Nothing is happening
Everything is falling apart
You never took your chances
You've neglected a brand new, fresh start

You never took your chances
You never took anything granted
That's because everything you do is caused from

Change in opporotunity
Advancements in fortune
Studying new ideas
Memorizing pictures
Mailing out the resumes
Probing out the good things
You don't even understand
Everything will come back to you

When you forget chances
You're gonna remember where everything starts
That's because everything you do is
Falling apart and you don't care
You gotta arrest yourself
Put yourself into your place
You skipped your first trimester
And look where you are now
Track Name: Condomhead
The towel smells like cigarettes
And I'm a hunch for self-imposed house arrest
I like to have conversations with myself in the shower to remind me of who I still am
There's hair that's falling off my scalp
And I'm drowning in legions of hair
Forget the times, forget the family
Move into a suburb of New York City
Don't waste your time wandering and trying to get people to subscribe to your zine

Like my body is a condom
That is blocking the things I put inside my head
To do for creative purposes
And in the event that I actually do something
It'll screw with my life
Just like a bastard child who isn't a bastard child
Who's really just a bastard

The sirens are going off, my dog is howling because she is scared
But I forget that she is dead and it's just another case of exploding head
Ubiquitous ubiquity found in the hallway of a stereotypical high school
And it's the same when I remember that I the stereotypes are stuff I didn't blend in with
And I type words and phrases and learn that what I type isn't what that I meant to say
The monotony of tribulations go day by day
My narcolepsy is like another symptom of the fact that I don't care
But looking at the vagabonds who shout that the world's gonna end makes me happy

And my body is a condom
And my mind is a sperm
And the head is an artist
Who's just waiting to squirm
Into the ocean, down in depths and you're drunk
Mr. Condomhead, is this who you were?
And is this who you are?

I'm gonna paint a picture
And sing in Esperanto
And then do a backflip
And steal the show
But then I wake up
And it's just my time
And my head is still a condom
And I am still microscopic
And the world is just a body
Track Name: The Same As
There's a new church being built behind my house
Yet there's already 4 churches that are within a five mile radius
So what's really even the point of doing that
Who knows?
There's a new shopping center being built 2 miles down the road
It's huge and it's got apartments that rise higher than the stores
I'm never gonna get to see though, cause by then I'll
Be gone.

When I look out into the window
I see a beauty that really never fails to compliment myself
But I'm only miles away from the construction
I just hope that in 10 years this'll be the same as it's always been
When I take my car out of the neighborhood
I'm surrounded by water towers and large fields that I still wanna run through
But I'm only miles away from the construction
I just hope that in 20 years it'll stay the same as it always was

Dead people are staring back at me
They're wondering what's happened to their oh so vibrant community
And I tell them that the area was cleared away
For stores
They tell me "why must everything change?"
I asked them the same thing but the thing is that the place that
I've gotten so used was built as a replacement
For theirs

When I look out into the window
I see a beauty that really never fails to compliment myself
But I'm only miles away from the construction
I just hope that in 10 years this'll be the same as it's always been
When I take my car out of the neighborhood
I'm surrounded by water towers and large fields that I still wanna run through
But I'm only miles away from the construction
I just hope that in 20 years it'll stay the same as it always was
Track Name: Self
You're a hopeless romantic, you were acting too frantic
It's never too late now, it is never too late now
But everyone's doing and I am not wooing
Whatever ambition I'd want later

Everyone has decided and I've still subsided
Whatever quest that I'd wanted, if it still seemed worthy
Everyone's found their pleasure, and yet my treasure
Will not wait for me.

You have been blind this entire time now
You don't have to choose yet
It's just a pattern of existing
You should feel alive, not dead

I just gotta reap myself (x4)
Track Name: Lapse
We'll wake up tomorrow, and do the same things we did yesterday
An all time low, my brain emits waves for adventures
And when everyone dies we'll repeat these different ways
And when in a hundred years, they'll be new people to repeat our abusive nomenclatures.
Coincided with unwanted hate, there's the people who want to destroy everything
And you only meaning in life to survive, so the Sherman's path they make you must avoid.
I am only a homosapien, you must respect that too
But the grey matter you think you have is starting to turn into goo
Perception is a very important part in our lives
And when we have a negative voice directing us we tend to not stay alive
And then we will never learn to suffice
And we then will we all lapse and die
Cause we're living.
Track Name: Scared
It's the summer again and we seem to be near the end.
Clouds of industrial miasma cover the world as relationships rend.
We have little burning holes in our pockets that let us stay away.
But in tension, they bring us close together in offensive anonymity and risque.
And they say there's a message in all acoustic songs
And they say we have nothing to fear before long
And they say that the weather will be a new clear day
But everyone seems to mishear what they always say
Get into the bunker, prepare for obsolescence
Of the human race and every earthly quintessence
I just wanna keep to myself but the law disagrees
And I'm slowly becoming a number for nonsensical fees

It's summer and I'm starting to hate all of my friends
Anger is covering the messages that we all send
And the fun of going outside and playing is starting to fade
Because I'm starting to lose my childhood innocence
1 PM should be midday, but for me it's the morning
And I'm pissing everyone off because I can't do jack shit
This decade's coming to a close and I can somewhat sense it
Because the days of social media are starting to flit
For every type of younger Millennial that's out there
Who faces isolation and stress from the future
I don't know what I'm gonna do, but I still know
That I'm gonna suffocate in the weight of my student loans
But that's the future, and I'm in the present living semi-happily
