about

This album has been recorded over the past 2 years. Many of the songs are unpolished, and quite a few have been done with improvised parts. My music contains imperfections because i believe they give insight into who I am as an artist, and an imperfect person.

about

Wyatt Sikora Boonton, New Jersey

Wyatt Sikora is a mutt in every sense. His style, his looks, and most notably, the music he creates. Having dabbled on genres most would consider too strange or difficult to merge, he brings blues melodies to the electronic world with finger picked chords and drones to create a landscape that is easy to lose yourself within. His style is ever evolving and he consumes all he sees as inspiration. ... more

Track Name: Fall Colors
as the year is hit with its first cold breeze
the leaves seem to fall faster than ever before
the colors couldn't seem to stick this year

as a cry is heard in the earths old ears
a tear from her eye, collapsing while sucked to the floor
the reasons for this couldn't be more unclear
Track Name: Flower Petals
I am planted in the rain
head back facing upwards
I am washing out my brain
drowing memories of others

I am planted in the rain
head back facing upwards on and ever upwards
i'm evolving in the game
time and nature's mother

sweet sickness
wooden kisses
root killer
Track Name: Thread
does a thread
hold any strength
when its by it's self
sitting on the shelf

when you pull its ends
just a single line
and it's struggling
to be strong this time

pull me back and forth
make me stronger
through myself again
pull it together, forever i mend

pull me back and forth
make me stronger
through myself again
pull it together, forever i mend
Track Name: Under Water
been thinkin about
been thinkin about
been thinkin about how we used to know each other
and how it's such a shame that we dont see each other anymore
and i need to come out from under water
submerged so long, i cant go on
you need to hear this song, you need to hear this song

been thinkin about how we used to know each other
and how it's such a shame that we dont see each other anymore
and i need to come out from under water
submerged so long, i cant go on
you need to hear this song, you need to hear this song
Track Name: Elemental Demography
no more light
sleep continues
in the afterlife

warm distortions
of our pain and life
calculations
of decisions we've made
that rewrote the particles
we bound to our souls
that comprised of our whole
and the elements we made
the gold for our days

im blocking the sun from making shadows now
i've turned it off to makin cloudy days
i've moved from the numbness of rain in fall
im shaping the cosmos in tiny ways
i'm eroding the stones that imprison my brain
to build you have to expand or a diamond make
Track Name: Jesus Butter
he's got connections
in the afterlife
they say he's the butter
dripping from your knife

eat his words
drink his pain
drunk with power
half insane

and even when he's gone this long
his loyal fans recant his song

oh i believe in nothing
except for what i see
i see a lot of liars
all staring back at me

i'm no devils advocate
but i see a different sign
its one bent on reason
and becoming divine

see what hurts
causes pain
if its evil
give it shame

cause when we follow
droning songs
that tells us all
our right and wrongs
Track Name: Dada
its like the beating of your heart
oh that rhythm keeps me going on
as long as you dont stop, i go on
forever, singing this song

its on your every breath that i draw my own
its in your absence that i breath with you
you'll never be alone, no you'll never be alone
breath with me, so we're not alone

its in your eyes
i see reflections of the sky
and in your arms i know the farthest that we'll ever be apart
and in your smile, i see what puts the happiness in me
and thats how i feel alive, so breath with me this time
Track Name: Hide and Geek
what a fragile thing
i'll never know how to begin
until i learn how to run to you
break this wall, and let you through
but that wont do...
i wish that i could lower it for you
Track Name: Treacherous Toys
The parents usually say
when your done put your toys away
and you played with my heart
yea you took me apart

im a tiger without any claws
you took a hacksaw to my paws
you left me alone on the floor
you took all I had and more

the children usually say
i've put all my things away
away from the questions of everyone else
they still lie about to comfort themselves

im a monster escaped from his cage
now the music has stopped, and i'm enraged
I waited so long for you to display me
now instead of playtime, you've played me
Track Name: MIA
when i was young,
i used to play here
i used to go outside

but since you've been gone,
i cant escape here
i just sit inside
Track Name: Purring
the way we talk is something different
our tongues that click together our mouths that meet forever
a shocking moment to the system, reset to feel its pulse

i think i like that face of yours
the way you cast your gazes
it makes my heart amazed
Track Name: Missing Those Days
i miss the days
when i used to draw
pictures of things
that i thought i saw

i used to have wonder
i used to have gall
i used to be happy
i used to have balls

I miss the days when i used to try
not because i wanted to
cause i thought that i would die

oh i miss the days
when money wasn't everything
money wasn't anything
to me
to me, or you
all i miss, is being with you

but i'll make the day
and i'll save us all
its gonna take a while i think
we might have to crawl

oh i miss the day
when nothing wasn't everything
and nothing didn't mean a thing
and everything i cared about

had always been a part of me
i didn't have to go compete
i didn't have to kill myself
to be alive and feeling things

but i never thought i'd live to see
the day that it would change on me
thats why i'm still missing those days
Track Name: Expensive Mistake
i see i see, i fly so far
everywhere you want to be is where you are
i see i see i see everything
and everyone you ever wanted to be
is free, is free

i see i see i see i see i, i

i see i see i see i see i, i
Track Name: Fuck the Power
Fuck the bankers
fuck the jails
fuck the ones who put us there
fuck the politician lying
comfortably on his golden chair

fuck the liars
fuck the frauds
fuck the ones who call us dogs

bite the hand that steals the food
kill the beast before its full

I dont need a gun to fight you
I have balls and a fiery mind
scream the obvious penalty
those who fuck the masses die
Track Name: What Are You Doing?
25 years ago
i was born today
happy birthday to me

constantly in decay
never do it twice the same way
i am different for these feeling

wish it could be that easy
dont you wish it could be that easy
when you fall
when you fall

and you sing out of key
stop looking at me
when i make these mistakes
i am trying to make something original

something you never heard before x 2
in your sad, pathetic little world
but i'm the one, i think i'm the one who is sad
and i think i can not get out of this mess
and i'll try x 3 (x3)
and i'll keep on trying til it turns

i keep on hitting different strings
i dont give a fuck what they are
as long as they sound right to me
and if you dont like what i've got to say
i'm getting really close to the microphone to tell ya
fuck yourself you're not for me
cause i am not for you, you should stop listening
right now, right here, what are you doing? what are you doing? what are you doing?

listening to a boy
you've never met before, in your life
i got nothin for you
unless you like these tunes
then you can stay

doo doo doodee doodee doo
Track Name: Save Me
well i dont have the money today
and its tought but i really cant pay
every bit of the dream that i'd saved for tomorrow
has lifted and floated away

oh i cant save enough for a kid
and i cant keep enough to get old
while my grandmothers grandmother lives in attic
the children sleep out in the cold

and forget trying just to hold on
unless you are clinging to bread
when you open your hand to devour your fill
just some crumbs and a burnt flour scent
Track Name: Mouth Monsters
i get my kicks from pixy sticks
funky art and sad musics
i love the cats
and love the sloths
they make me sappier than sog
and riding bikes with frisbee
video games with you an me
the colors green, black, and white
staying up way into night

i write the things that no ones said
maybe because no one cares
but i dont care, if no one cares
this musics meant for me
and originality is dead
i snuffed it while sleeping in bed
and i believe, yes i believe
that new is better than recycling

i am an instrument
though i may be missing a few keys, oh please

chopins karate chopping chan
robots dancing in the sand
kittens raining from the sky
8 bit heros swagging by
guitars and keyboards grow on trees
classical music with hip hop beats
slowly swaying through the street
with old people tossing perogies

i am an instrument
i can play any song i can make
Track Name: Olden Soul
i think i was born into the wrong time
is that why i feel so alone
i cant adapt to why
we do such pointless things without rhyme

am i about to die
it could happen any minute
so should i just sit here afraid

the newspaper lied
i'm still right here breathin
i wont be the medias slave

fuck be yourself
thats a campaign
it took a huge shit
right into your brain

the fact that you think that
whenever you feel down
means they've already trapped you
and made you a clown

i'm tired of people
not thinking why
they do pointless things
until they die

they look right past happy
and money decides
the exterior smile
with empty insides

the children we see
are raised by tvs
their cell phone
has knowledge
the parents cant speak

they learn about things
that you cant explain
its sit there like acid
boiling their brains

we focus on problems
when we dont have the time
we're spending their future
on their childrens dimes

the ones that they're having
cause were way too afraid
to talk of the things
that we watch every day

i think i was born into the wrong time
is that why i feel so alone
i cant adapt to why
we do such pointless things without rhyme
Track Name: Yogi Flow
peace and loving
fully understanding each other with no conditions
living fully happiness and healthiness
acceptance of the fact we are one

fighting killing massive genocide of innocence at bidding
of the ancient words kept in books, keeping us with dirty looks keepin us bent over in front of dirty crooks
we are held in prejudice with out the consciousness of our degenerate behavior
what are the thoughts we should live by

i can live by my interpretation of what reality seems to be
peace and loving, simple ways to speak words
they level the eyes all to meet

peace and loving
fully understanding each other with no conditions
living fully happiness and healthiness
acceptance of the fact we are one
