1. Lizards in the Sky
Why is the clown screaming?
Perhaps the clown couldn’t handle clown school. The psychic stress of making people laugh could have slowly eaten away at him. Maybe he took too much of a liking to his prop magic dust. He really could have been transported across time and space to an incomprehensible hellscape of non-Euclidean geometry to be eaten alive by a monster.
Or perhaps there is more to this clown than we all had initially thought. Maybe he’s not a victim of fear or anxiety at all. Perhaps this clown is a brave explorer, scaling the depths of his own mind. Self-discovery is no easy task. It takes nerves of steel and a clever mind to come to terms with the dark things a man is capable of doing. Who better to come to terms with the insanity of his own human experience than a grimacing, twisted clown? Maybe he’s not screaming at all. Maybe the clown is laughing.
Psycho Delicacy has been recorded with strict attention to maximizing quality, detail, and sonic fidelity. Sound waves were captured directly out of the air by a wizard and magically converted to a pristine, lossless digital format. It is important that the wizard did not do this willingly, as his sadness and tears were a vital component to the spell’s success. To ensure the most faithful and fruitful Psycho Delicacy experience, please wire the sound output directly into our cerebral cortex. It is highly encouraged for the listener to briefly pause the album at the end of track nine and pretend to change to a second disc; bonus points are awarded for making CD player or turntable noises out loud.
Psycho Delicacy has been tested to work with a multitude of mind-altering substances, including cannabis, psilocybin, kitten videos and horse tranquilizers.
