about

WORLD ANTI-GOD FREEDOM X is the début album from Daniel Johann's new project, Adore, 1996. Intended as a soundtrack to the fast/slow dynamic halfworld we live in, the Artist has created a series of aural images - acquiescent thundering waterfall masterpieces and thumping dance beats muffled and heard second-hand from a neighbour's party.

Put plainly, presented is a collection of hip-hop symphonies that shamelessly embody the post-millennial generation; self-indulgent, cold, whimsical - and most importantly, completely obsessed with the past.

Track Name: Went Home About It (Version)
||SECTION 1||

I am no one, hold my arms down
The only thing I can think about
You softly frown, and I draw my arms round
Try to absorb your whole body
To keep you by my side, I sighed

Stop being lonely
When you're not on your own
Lie in bed
Call your mother
Watch your TV
'til you fall asleep
Don't laugh, you're just one more car
On your way to work
So watch out, call me

||SECTION 2||

If you's a real hustler you know
808's bitch (drop the bass)
DJ slash producer
Huh? Yo! Come again!
That's all we got
I'm known for that
Yo, KT rocks the mic as a true MC
Freestyle, rap for you
New mixtape, the perfect beat
Run the trap, bitch (hoo!)
Yo southside!
Check it out! La-la-la-la-ladies! (Lady, hey lady!)
Hey brother (yo, one time)
Hey sister (huh?)
La-la-la-la-ladies! Lady! Hey lady! (You know how we do)

||SCENE 3||
Came to say I love you always
Caught you keeping your old straight face
Track Name: Metro-2
||SCENE 1||
MAN: Snake, did you like my sunglasses?

||SCENE 2||
Always
You know I need you
Metro-2

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Pick me up and crush me into pieces

What do you want?
I fall away

||SCENE 3||
KYLE: Well I'm not feeling myself and I don't know who to fucking turn to... with these feelings inside, everything fucking sucks. This morning Brian Scoleery called me, asked me if I wanted to wake and bake. I said no. And last night Ben and Justin Kirwin asked me if I wanted to play, uh, Up the River, Down the River with them... and fucking Lauren Reeve, the whole Langwood house. I didn't want to. That's not like me, because usually I'm always down to drink, always down to smoke. Always down to kick it with my boys, with some good as music and shit. But lately I'm just not in the mood. I don't even want to get out of bed and shit, because of the overwhelming feeling of dread and sadness that clouds my entire being and keeps me from being who I should be and shit. I wrote this plea for help because... (unintelligible)
Track Name: Milks
||Milk One||

Don’t think it out
Don’t think about it now
You know you know
I know you know it

He thinks he caught you drinking milk from the bottle
He thinks he caught you wearing your shoes past the front door
And leaving your coat and hat on
Talking to someone you shouldn’t of
No more try
No more try

He thinks he caught you drinking milk from the bottle
He thinks he caught you wearing your shoes past the front door
Thinking bout things you shouldn’t of
Slowly but surely rolled off
No more try
No more try

Don’t think it out
No don’t think about it now
You know you know
I know you know it

||Milk Two||

VERSE 1
Cold and safe, walking slow
Crossing streets, fast way home
No one caught you when you
Caught yourself, the mighty fall

CHORUS
See how they fall down

VERSE 2
Leaving quickly from dark
Untidy rooms in your friend's house
Walking slowly from bars
In your home town with no one round

CHORUS
See how they fall down

EXIT
Never caught a long wave
Never took a long ride
Fallen all asleep
Fallen honestly

Never caught a long wave
Never took a long ride
Fallen all asleep
Fallen honestly
Track Name: Beautiful Brand New Mountains With Brand New Snow
MAN: My name? Oh, let me tell you my name... uhh... I'm confused. Because uh... you know... we're supposed to believe in the ministry, right? So is the Church and state supposed to be separate? I'm confused because I never went to school, right? Does a confused person get a resolution? I don't understand. You see, when you go like that, right, you have a cross. Two sticks, right? And that's how I felt when I was in Waterloo, because when I walked in Waterloo and smiled at people, they treated me like vampire. They used the cross and they went like this by not smiling at me. In Toronto - hey hi guys, you know me, Steve Spiros, easy going? Those who know me, I'm a nobody! You understand. And you can't kill a person with no body. So, why am I afraid? I'm not afraid. I'm afraid of the boogeyman, who's the boogeyman? You figure it out! I'm getting out of here! I'm going back to Waterloo where the vampires hang out, and I'm going to wear my sunglasses at night, you know why? Because woman show their tits, have short skirts, and then they feel violated when I look at them. Why? Because I have sunglasses on and I'm weird. Uh... I'm from Humberside. I'm sorry if I made a fool of Humberside but all those people who called me a sleepwalker... I woke up! Now I'm going back to sleep because I'm going to be committed in an isolation room and allow them to proceed me as I am, a fuck up! Good bye!
Track Name: From Mouth to Mouth
Feel my

Watch i
No I know

Know what you want
I don’t need you
Know what you want
How you get used
Know what you want
Know what you want
Know what you want

I don’t know how to feel it right
I don’t know how to feel it

Ooo
Ooo
Ooo

Track Name: Slacker
Watching you turn your back
I leave without a track
Walking from street to stair
I could still see you there
I never see you there
I never see you there
Thinking about your stare
Watching you feelings bare
Watching you I still care
I love you everywhere
I want you feelings bare
Only about you I care
I love you everywhere
I love you everywhere
Only about you I care
Only about you I care

I want you everywhere
Only about you I care

When you’re dead never wake up
Never sleep never wake up
Never walk never slow run
Never talk never see sun
Track Name: A Living Machine (In Your Body Waiting)
||SECTION ONE||

Were you warm all night?
Did you catch your own cold?
Did you laugh when you woke up?
Were you laughing like I was?
Did you laugh when you woke up?
Were you laughing with me too?
Did you laugh when you woke up?
Like I do when I'm with you

||SECTION TWO||

You've got
A living machine
In your body
Body waiting

No more I know
See you as one
To call your bluff
And watch you grow
We feel your form
Build all sky high
We call you down
To see you fall
Track Name: Infinite Medatory Peace
||SECTION 1||

He doesn't want you gone
He tells you open wide
He never told you what
Children never die
He never told you what
Or even mentioned how
Or told you how he wanted to
Live another life
Walking always upwards
Living all your life (Living all your life)
Living all your life (Living all your life)
Speeding slowly down an open road (Speeding slowly down)
At the wheel of the car (The wheel of the car)
Every person is more than capable (Everyone here)
Of looking out for themselves (Take care of yourself)
No don't feel sad (No don't be sad)
It's expected to exit from life (Exit from this life)
No don't be mad (No be mad)
Every soul leaves before it pays it's dues (Every soul leaves)
No don't feel sad (No don't feel sad)

WOMAN: How about the time you fell down at my old house in Wichita, down the stairs? I watched you slide down a whole staircase.
MAN: (interrupting) That whole party was a good memory, of that night and the party.
WOMAN: (laughing) You slipped and fell backwards -
MAN: Yeah...
WOMAN: (continuing without being interrupted) - into the screen and there was a bunch of us on (unintellible speech), we were just like... ooohh...
MAN: I fell down... I like fell down, like, a couple of flights of stairs in Witchita (WOMAN laughs loudly)... when I was an alcoholic... I went through, like, a three year phase, I feel like maybe it was like a... it was like a 19-20... like right before feel... turn 21 I feel like you drink way more. You know. Than when you're actually... like as soon as you turn 21 you start to care. I need to get my life together, I'm 21. But yeah that's a memory.

PAM: I don't think it would be the worst thing if they let me go... because then... they might... I just don't think it's many little girl's dream to be a receptionist. I like to do illustrations. Mostly watercolour. A few oil pencil. Jim thinks they're good.

||SECTION 2||
I woke up distorted
Moving from room to room
Leaving my home
My heart races faster
I can hear them singing out
A memorable tune
Happy birthday to you
Happy birthday to you
Hip-hip hooray
Doing their crossword puzzles
Working the night shift like my Dad
Used to
