about

melanchole is a collection of ambitious lo-fi pop songs recorded by daniel johann in the winter of 2012. these are songs that deal with the awkwardness of growing up, the pains of being apart, and the anxieties of being alive and real.

~~~

in conjunction with the first ever vinyl pressing of this album (three years after release) i have decided to share a slightly mastered, revised version of the album with you all. i hope you can grow used to it.

diary pt. 1 is a song i wrote slightly after i released melanchole

voice vi is a song from the salvia palth "album" voices

te aroha is a reinterpretation of a maori folk song that i recorded last year

~~~

Track Name: i don't know anyone, i am
and somebody knows
but nobody cares
and somebody's there

i don't know anyone i am
in relation to anyone i guess
Track Name: stones pull out heart
and i don't know you i'm all like that
i get excited when you sit near

and what do you want?
i could have been anyone i wanted to be

when you talk i feel it pulls me in
so i tell myself not to get back in
to that drawback stones pull out heart

what do you want?
i could have been anything i wanted to be
and nobody would have seen
nobody would have seen
what do you want?
i could have been anyone i wanted to be
Track Name: i don't want to ask your father or anything
this foggy line
this misty morning
this railroad sign
keeps me falling
i sleep outside
even if it's raining
it's a sign
i'm leaving in the morning

i don't wanna talk, you lost me yet again
somebody left all mighty, my god friend
reptile mind, the good thrilled parted game
i don't wanna ask your father or anything

(repeat)

that cancer mind
that old bats carpet
to realise
what i am marking
and some old eyes
that i am watching

i don't wanna talk, you lost me yet again
somebody left all mighty, my god friend
reptile mind, the good thrilled parted game
i don't wanna ask your father or anything

(instrumental)

i don't wanna talk, you lost me yet again
somebody left all mighty, my god friend
reptile mind, the good thrilled parted game
i don't wanna ask your father or anything
Track Name: i was all over her
don't know what i wanted
i have a memory
back at that party
i was all over her
we didn't make out
or do anything
i just remember
i was lonely

i guess i am always
it's not a problem
it's just something
i got used to it
every stranger
makes me feel safer
and every person
seems more beautiful
Track Name: like you know i get old
oh
now i miss you
and every little bird
sounds like i never heard
i always loved your words
oh that feeling
i always lose my mind like
always all the time like
you know i get old

like you know i get old

(repeats)
Track Name: post-traumatic all-night-long
it's nobody's party, don't know why
we're having a party
i don't see you all the time
all the time

post-traumatic all-night-long
til we can't sleep
nodded off long snow
and i don't know
nobody knows
i'm this cold

it's nobody's party, don't know why
we're having a party
i don't see you all the time
all the time

post-traumatic all-night-long
til we can't sleep
nodded off long snow
and i don't know
nobody knows
i'm this cold

it's nobody's party, don't know why
we're having a party
i don't see you all the time
all the time
Track Name: reprise
love
i am love
i am all
i am small
i can feel
this is real
this is all i know
this all
i am old
and i am well off
and i don't know myself
this is all
i can sing
but i can't read you
yeah i don't want to (know you)
not at all
leave me be
yeah let me see you
for what you really are
not a ghost
of some beauty
that i can't deal with
not for a little while
or at all
Track Name: needs no progress, i will lie
one day i'll die
and somebody will take my insides
i'll walk around
just a corpse i'll make no sound
someone catch me, i will lie (no one, no one)

someone catch me, i will lie (no one, no one)
needs no progress, i will lie

and some silhouette
of somebody's pet that rose again
doesn't matter to me yet
doesn't make me upset

someone catch me, i will lie (no one, no one)
needs no progress, i will lie (no one, no one)
oooooooooooooooooooooo (no one, no one)
needs no progress, i will lie (no one, no one)
someone catch me, i will lie (no one, no one)
needs no progress, i will lie (no one, no one)
someone catch me, i will lie (no one, no one)
needs no progress, i will lie (no one, no one)
Track Name: girl
one day i will
get drunk and txt you
and i’ll say
and i’ll say
that i want you
lets get coffee
when you’re down
when you’re down
yeah you scare me
the nicest person
i will wait
i will wait
dali said that
you want me also
will you say
will you say

i thought no one would think about me
but it’s not surprising that
you thought about me
i thought
you’d feel like an ocean all reactive
and lucid in emotion why’d you think
about me
Track Name: te aroha
te aroha
te whakapono
te rangimarie
tatou tatou e

love
faith
and peace
be amongst us all
