A LETTER TO THE LISTENER:

THRU THE NOISE explores the role of noise in our everyday lives, in this case I define noise as anything that impedes or distracts us from achieving our human potential. Noise is everywhere: at the workplace, at school, at our home, in our heads, online, in our relationships - the list can be endless. This LP is intended to at the very least get you thinking about what noise is in your life, what it means to you, and how you might address it.

Kind Regards,
Matt Script

Lyrics to "Out of the Walls" adopted from a poem by Tess Nowadly called "all the gone are dead"

all the gone are dead.

tables and chairs
tables and chairs
tables and chairs
tables and chairs
tables and chairs
tables and chairs
tables and chairs
tables and chairs

LOOK. AT. all of them.
all of them.
like paper skeletons.
Skin is red-light,
open-cheap;
got eyes for everyone,

They rise out the walls,
out the walls.
weren’t ever dead at all
talk distinct, don’t-forget-me-words,
ask favors.

something is
ending.

no.
“I am well.”

“I am well.”
“I am well.”

But.
your faces!
your:
used-cars, glove compartments; bathing suits, laundry baskets,
people we all knew, their last names, pushed up against strange mind-walls with the seven-digit numbers;
and those big, too-big cities we once had,
had us.

Maybe have nothing,
have nothing.
how lucky, how free! To be so young-pretty, well read-aware
knock your little heads together
too thin-too-thin! and all the rest of it
a whole generation gone that way
even the artists.
“just-don’t-care-anymore”
all got the same memories.
Those televisions
bedrooms, blue carpets,
tables and chairs
computer screens.

When they leave,
you think:

There are.
so many ways.
not to be alive.
