Folks from my hometown said i should get a gun when i moved to my town what's the big deal? I don't trust the folks with the money. should i troll them online. i don't know what's the big deal? I feel like a fake, don't trust myself. how do i fix this? i don't know what's the big deal? i don't like my body or my sex drive. i am embarassed. i don't know what's the big deal? good job everyone something went wrong i don't know what i'm talking about but i feel strongly my body has wronged me awake and i don't mean to be full of existential dread but that don't phase me breathe like a motorcyle talk like a meme feels hug all your lovers and ask what's the big deal? there's something wrong with the government, no one trusts it or feels good these days what's the big deal? folks i know have died and damn i'm still alive oh god i dont know what's the big deal? what if i was young and could drop out of high school and hop trains what's the big deal? i clicked retweet on my insecurities from my teens what's the big deal? good job everyone something went wrong i don't know what i'm talking about but i feel strongly my body has wronged me awake and i don't mean to be full of existential dread but that don't phase me breathe like a motorcyle talk like a meme feels hug all your lovers and ask what's the big deal? sometimes i wonder if i had a car would i drive away prolly not i dunno what's the big deal? i love people but wow i feel anxious. i'll wait for you to call. i don't know what's the big deal? good job everyone something went wrong i don't know what i'm talking about but i feel strongly my body has wronged me awake and i don't mean to be full of existential dread but that don't phase me breathe like a motorcyle talk like a meme feels hug all your lovers and ask what's the big deal?

i wanna plant a building i wanna build a garden i wanna guard my feelings i wanna feed the feeling that's been building deep inside of me i look around the building i try to find the exit i think about the future then i forget what i was thinking about and i don't wanna feel like i want anything at all. it's raining in the city, it's sleeting in the suburbs the weather always knows exactly just what it's talking about. i rented a bulldozer and then i lost the keys i guess i won't being doing too much. not too much today. and i don't wanna feel like i want anything at all. i'm calling you on gmail. i'm texting you on snapchat. i tried to lose your number... but it's still burned into the streets they never paved. oh well. okay.

Bag Of Rice 03:58
here we go. i've been thinking... i think i thought too much but i've been feeling just like a bag of rice but i've been thinking... i think i thought too much but i've been feeling just like a bag of rice but things move slow. years, they go. here we go. i've been feeling like a big old bag of rice. i guess it's not so bad. i just don't move much. feeling kinda sad, but kinda comfortable... i just don't move much sitting on a chair sitting on the floor sitting anywhere i just don't move much. please don't go. just so you know. here we go. here we go.

The Ego Song 01:46
i think i feel my ego feeling like a feeling feel no meaning meeting feelings i don't mean to give to anyone with one word feeling stuck up on my upper lip i'm stuttering my brain is stuck up on the feeling that it's not doing it's job. there's my brain and ego. they are arguing. i must apologize. i wasn't listening. i feel like a jerk, feel like i dont care at all. but i'm feeling bad so i must care a little bit. and when i go home, i don't sleep good. i've been having these dreams that kinda freak me out. i think that i was thinking 'bout the things that i forgot and there's anything like anything like anything that i have said that seems like understanding please be understanding that i don't know about anything i said that doesn't confuse me. my poor ego's bleeding and i'm thinking about where we go. there's my brain and ego. they are arguing. i must apologize. i wasn't listening. i feel like a jerk, feel like i dont care at all. but i'm feeling bad so i must care a little bit. and when i go home, i don't sleep good. i've been having these dreams that kinda freak me out. i think that i was thinking 'bout the things that i forgot

nachos, again. big time worrywart, thinking about the world. but what about the feeling that i've got deep in my tummy staying up late and dreaming bout the bad stuff. nachos, again. nightly celebration of another day survived. clicking on the websites that set the clock hands spinning 1 am 2 am 3 i am tired. nachos, again. nachos, again. forgot about my money forgot about my feelings detaching from my body swiftly crunching on the ennui looking at the ceiling to see art in all the stainings nachos, again. keep it like a secret, i know the world is ending twitter bots with hot takes melting all the ice caps just to watch them crash down, crunching now crunch down, melted cheese. nachos, again.

about

"billy came in with a bag of a rice and closed the front door too hard causing the picture frame to fall, upending the blue side table. not noticing that, upon entering the room, he trips over it and the bag of rice goes flying in polka's direction. polka is on the floor checking her email and billy attempts to catch the rice but trips over the coffee table and he knocks himself out. the bag of rice bonks polka on the head, knocking her out" - or "Bag Of Rice" - the new album from Billy Mack Collector is another collection of happy songs about being uncomfortable.
It covers exciting topics like depression, Allentown Pennsylvania (the City Without Limits), self-doubt, sexual hang ups, food, and trying to be nice to your friends. it's also probably about settling down and being in your thirties.
It features a bunch of cool people and was recorded in 2017 while renovating a house.
It's the first full length Billy Mack Collector album since 2014's It's Okay To Carrot.
