I wrote two songs for my cat Einstein, starting about a month before he died and finally finishing them up five months after. This is the cheesiest imaginable thing but I take my songwriting inspiration where I can get it.

This album is also available in full and for free on my website:
I put it up here for anyone who wants to give me money for it and/or get lossless or higher-quality versions of the songs.

Track Name: The Eternally Incomprehensible Thing
Track Name: God Does Not Play Dice
Inevitability didn’t make it any easier;
I couldn’t prepare myself at all.
There was a hundred meter tidal wave headed for me,
and I was building a brick wall.

Who was I kidding
to think that time could heal a wound I hadn’t even been given?
Now I’m tying on a bandage that was torn into ribbons.
It doesn’t work and it hurts like the dickens.

You only wanted three things in life.
It was a kind of joke but I’ve been really dreading the punchline.
The food and affection I could provide you with daily,
but the sleeping is up to you, except for this one time.

You used to seem to vibrate in sixteen different dimensions so how come all of my memories are quiet and empty?
I can’t think back to all the good times without hacking through the bad ones so my only salvation is random acts of distraction.
And every piece of fur I find in my clothing might be the last one.
