about

“This is a song I wrote in response to a recent period in my life filled with some heavy losses. I was trying to find a light hearted way to come to terms with death being an unavoidable part of the human experience. The idea of attempting to break up with death is funny to me because it's impossible. No matter what we can't avoid our life long connection to it. Accecptance is our only choice.”

-Ecid

lyrics

I have a habit of pretending I can multi task
Ending up with so many open tabs
the whole world goes flat….my bad
guess we're digging to China to find a flat screen to crack
imagination has a way of reshaping the destinations on our path
Somedays I wake up and wanna make out with the past
but most days I’m like fuck that
take a bath make a track and make it last
I’m so hungry I could eat glue
but I’ll eat you instead you little horses head
todays endorphin says your more alive than dead
so why hide in bed you’ve got that fortune to get


I’m breaking up with you
I’m breaking up with us
I’m selling all your shit
I’m burning all your stuff
I’m in a long distance….
relationship with death
its complicated
we need space to keep it fresh


I know you keep sleeping around with people I love
like I wouldn't find out and it wouldn't beat me up
as if it wasn’t evil enough to stab me in the heart with my own blood
you take away my friends without a goodbye good luck
I’ve been trying to break your heart but you’re invincible
In a world where Empathy is not admissible
I guess I missed the mark but I hit the bull
when I stopped trying to save you from being so miserable
Automate our emotions till our feelings are nothin
I can’t trust you, I can’t trust your cousin
I try to smoke & drink with someone before I judge them
but I blame both of you for the basket case I’m becoming


I’m breaking up with you
I’m breaking up with us
I’m selling all your shit
I’m burning all your stuff
I’m in a long distance….
relationship with death
its complicated
we need space to keep it fresh


Let’s pretend we never met
We’ll meet again when we get reincarnated as house plants
maybe then we can be friends and drown a branch
in bong water til we mutate into a new strain but I highly doubt that.
When life is apple pies and pickets fences personified
I suspect your locked up for a petty crime
but soon enough you’ll be back & I won’t be doing fine
Just a call away from losing my mind
I graduated to wearing black all year
who knows when I’ll be gone who knows when I’ll be here
but I’m ready for the fall at all times my dear
chasing Jameson down a hill with a trail of my tears


I’m breaking up with you
I’m breaking up with us
I’m selling all your shit
I’m burning all your stuff
I’m in a long distance….
relationship with death
its complicated
we need space to keep it fresh

about

ECID Minneapolis, Minnesota

At first glance most would think a skinny, blue-eyed hipster looking dude in a flannel with obnoxious Nike’s to match, would be in a post-electro indie-band. But this is the 90’s for the third time and one of rap’s most exciting new voices, ECID, is not your average newsstand heartthrob. ... more
