Recorded

"Don't Hear Me" is a song written by Austin Scholl and recorded under his alias ThornBrain. It was released on his second album, Nobody Cares Unless You're Pretty or Dying. The dub section was included on the Spider compilation as "Don't Dub Me".

About

The song sympathises with people Thorn has met on the internet who act one way over text, but act differently and become less likeable when they speak directly. It is musically inspired by Punk Rock bands who recorded their own Reggae songs, particularly The Clash and The Ruts.

Lyrics

Tell me why it keeps going wrong
Have I been cursed with a poison tongue
I can't speak to you like I want to
Because every time I show I'm a fool to you

There's something odd about a silent conversation
It can be read so many ways
I could convince you all that I
Could not uphold said to your

Don't hear me
Just read my words
I'm not who
I hoped you heard
Don't hear me
Just read my words
I'm not who

At times I feel like some random punctuations
Made to hide that I was swearing
So instead I look like I just
Had a mother of an aneurism

I can't connect while I'm still talking
Is it best if I stick to text
Or should we skip to the ultimatum
And have the both of us see what's next

Don't hear me
Just read my words
I'm not who
I hoped you heard
Don't hear me
Just read my words
I'm not who

Dub interlude with currently untranslated sample

Tell me why it keeps going wrong
Are my hands a mouth or my mouth a gun
Do your eyes see the friend I want to be
And your ears balk at that who is really me
