on a page torn from this book
i drew a waveform with your blood
and so i follow it and so remorse
courses through my body of course

in a little while
i'll go
unless you might wanna hang a while
then i won't
you're the only one i found so far
so outside i could be around
so come down
come over!

on a cutting board
the lights were shutting down
an avocado cut through your thumb
coursing out, already undone

in a little while
i'll go
unless you might wanna hang a while
then i won't
you're the only one i found so far
so outside i could be around
so come down

over through the fire escape
it's so late but i know you aren't tired yet
i'll bet you've got a couple things you think i should know
but unless you wanna say em now
i'll go

    General CommentFrom Gold Flake Paint in 2016, Evan talked about what Waveform was about:

    “Waveform is a song about what it means to turn suffering, or friction, or just emotional content, into an object of art,” he continues. “’I drew a waveform with your blood’ is the clearest way I’ve tried to express the red imagery on the album; the blood being the content of what I’m making this musical sculpture out of. It’s expressing the line between the physicality of art as an object and the ephemerality of the music.”
