Kat Powell I’m on the autism spectrum but wasn’t diagnosed until age 29 because I’m high-functioning. I can fake being normal just enough that people think I’m trying to be weird. It’s exhausting, frustrating, and demoralizing... but when I meet someone else who’s in the same boat, it makes me feel a little less like a failure.

Neurodivergent is one of the best things to happen to me this year, and I wanted to say thanks. I need to see you guys live so I can scream it properly. Favorite track: Neurodivergent.

We stand together! Please complete this sample task Push the buttons just like we ask This step first and that that step last Over and over and do it fast I’m watching everyone Feeling like a simpleton Why can’t I get it done I just want to scream and run But I know, there’s no where to go I Don’t think like you But I’m the one that’s called abnormal This Construct Was built by petty tyrants Am I on the level yet? How did I do on your little test? Get my brain to reset Cuz everything is you say is static Do I make a good pet? Obey the commands or get the back of the hand Cuz this world wasn’t built for a brain like mine Change your mind, Change your mind, change your mind We stand together We think apart Please complete this simple task Take your place within the plan We’ll help you fit as best we can Over and over, til you’re a new man We’ll examine everything Measure your entire being Normalize what you are feeling Put you on the proper setting I Don’t think like you But I’m the specimen in question This Construct Was built and can be dismantled

The Bends 04:19
Spike the terminal, enhance my visual I feel the bends coming on Move between worlds, exist in liminal, Gonna crash, gonna fall Gonna crash, gonna fall Gonna crash, gonna fall Nitrogen Under skin Expanding in my veins Clutch my chest Lost my breath It’s happening again I see red Shut me down There’s no friends in the bends Drop the chemical, kill the sensual I feel the bends coming on Processor critical, no longer animal Gonna crash, gonna fall Gonna crash, gonna fall Gonna crash, gonna fall Gonna crash, gonna fall Adrenaline Flooding in Pupils amplify Leviathan Cryogen Terror magnified I see red I said that you must shut me down I see red I said that you must shut me down I see red Shut me down There’s no friends in the bends

Relentless Wide awake while sleeping Smoke hangs in the air A constant dream, forever wondering Got the thousand-yard stair Unfiltered light obscures dawn Where’s the time gone? Build a wall Put up a screen Omicron Nu Epsilon Relentless X 3 Go! That’s right! When you hit me I get back up Gonna come back from Build a wall Put up a screen Omicron Nu Epsilon Wake up with this feeling And it’s more than I can bare Lost in the glare, gasping for air I’m a circle in a square Time’s a merciless bastard Not a heartbeat to spare Just one dimension Coming undone Omicron Nu Epsilon Falling or flying, I’ll never stop Living or dying, I’ll crawl atop That’s right! When you hit me I get back up Gonna come back from Build a wall Put up a screen Omicron Nu Epsilon Rend the veil Cross the line Walk the mile Fuck their design Falling or flying, I’ll never stop Living or dying, I’ll crawl atop Relentless That’s right! When you hit me I get back up Gonna come back from Build a wall Put up a screen Omicron Nu Epsilon Falling or flying, I’ll never stop Living or dying, I’ll crawl atop I am relentless I am relentless Falling or flying, I’ll never stop Living or dying, I’ll crawl atop

A monster inside Like holding back the tide Like I’m gonna die Unless I let it fly Line them up for slaughter I’m just getting stronger All others are imposters I’m the party monster I’m ready to burn Release me I’m ready to burn Release I’m feeling colorful And so invincible I’m ready to burn, release me I’m ready to burn, release me Fire is lit Prismatic Let Me Out Now! Monster outside Only one place you can hide Deep inside Alone with your mind I’m all that matters I’m your real master All others are imposters I’m the party monster I’m ready to burn Release me I’m ready to burn Release I’m feeling colorful And so invincible I’m ready to burn, release me I’m ready to burn, release me Fire is lit Prismatic Let Me Out Now! In a Grey Maze Bleeding color as you circle Fire is lit Let me out Prismatic Let me out I’m read to burn Release me I’m ready to burn Release me! I’m feeling colorful And so invincible I’m ready to burn, release me I’m ready to burn, release me Fire is lit Prismatic Let Me Out Now!

Angry People 04:09
Angry people gonna be out tonight They gonna troll you, gonna see if you bite Getting in your face, they gonna instigate They put some bodies on the line but it aint nothing but bait Pointing to their guns they try and test your discipline Looking like the victim is the only way they win Claiming innocence, they accuse you of the sin They wanna frame you criminal, it’s a false equivalence On the street, in the air, in our eyes, in our cries, it’s a fundamental act of defiance They can flex, they can vex, we reject, we connect, they will never come to know our compliance But we are human too Patience ebbs, and Love? Fuck you All this that we’re going through Means we don’t need what they cling to DE-FEND! YOUR-SELF! But don’t let them draw you out Don’t let them draw you out They can point, they can gas, they can shoot, they can beat, they can wallow all night in their violence They can flex, they can vex, we reject, we connect, they are looking all the more just a tyrant But we are human too Patience ebbs, and Love? Fuck you All this that we’re going through Means we don’t need what they cling to Angry people gonna be out tonight They wanna reaction, want to get you to fight Getting right in your face they wanna make this space An audience for their resentment, for their pain and disgrace Using epithets, they try to test your discipline Treat you like a simpleton like you’re no citizen Looking like the victim is the only way they win They wanna frame you you criminal, it’s a false equivalence But we are human too Patience ebbs, and Love? Fuck you All this that we’re going through Means we don’t need what they cling to DE-FEND! YOUR-SELF! But don’t let them draw you out Don’t let them draw you out

Curse 03:56
I walk in, feel the eyes on my skin Eyes narrow as I take it all in A wall on the left and hate on the right This whole place is itching for a fight May none rise for your knell May ashes blow where you dwell And may you learn to grieve well Heard a yell was I lost or just dumb Best to walk on out, better just to run But little did they know I knew right where I was And I brought nothing for them But retribution May none rise for your knell May ashes blow where you dwell And may you learn to grieve well I am

Bits and razors Cutting to the bone Bits and razors Put me in the zone Bits and razors In all their toxic flavors Metaphysical, liminal A hellraiser Wake up a different being Able to see all the things I’ve been missing Shift into a parallel world Where I thrive instead of just existing It’s on the edge of my cognition Breaking out of this self-made prison Explode singularity Break the cycle break the reliving Reclaiming the energy Break the cycle break the reliving Break the cycle break out the bits and razors Bits and razors Taking their hold Bits and razors Fearless and cold Explode singularity Breathe life into what gravity is killing Shift into a parallel world Where I thrive instead of suffocating It’s on the edge of my cognition Breaking out of this self-made oblivion

Kite was in A world of light unfolded before them Pulsing with the complex rhythms of synthetic intelligence The vitals feed came on-line oxygen saturation and heart rate normal The sense of a body was barely perceptible it was time to get to work They uploaded the first countermeasure, a security skin swiped from corporate Now they looked like one of them They floated through the first and then the second firewall The AI’s paid no attention, Kite was just another piece of the program A shadow amid the luminescence Kite deployed the second countermeasure, an elegant splinter of code Like a psychedelic for machines, the code bloomed in the sentry’s subroutines Soon it was lost in introspection and wonder and Kite slipped past the threshold into the sanctum Kite passed endless chambers, each containing a swirling storm of information They sensed their distant body trembling with adrenaline Kite focused on their target A solitary floating file, neglected and encrusted with encryption With the passcode the digital shackles melted away Kite was confused, the content was nothing more than a few sentences of archaic language They read them over and over again, mouthing the unfamiliar words Kite heard the faint echoes of their own voice, speaking the strange dialect in The Real Awakened From dreadful sleep A single instinct Promise to keep You killed my kin Your souls I’ll reap But first I feast There’s no escape I was written In ancient blood Last of my kind A prisoner Ig nor ance Is our re lease Again I hunt Welcome to the feast Kite was never late Vireo swirled his untouched drink as the minutes passed The din of a dozen hybrid languages rattled the bar’s smoke-filled air Somehow through the chatter he could hear the relentless tick of his old wristwatch, still stubbornly keeping time after 100 years It was time to go Careful not to be followed, he took his time getting to Kite’s apartment With a retina scan he quietly pushed the door open He heard the dissonant tone of the vitals monitor and saw Kite lying on the floor, still jacked in He knelt beside Kite’s lifeless body and heard the door shut behind him Once locked in pages I was caged in light Tormented sleep I saw without sight They sought learn our secrets They sought to make us slaves They sought the horrid truths We wisely locked away Vireo’s body rose into the air, a muted scream frozen on his face Rivulets of red swarmed his vision, forming an intricate network of pulsating veins He heard a voice, a soft strange language, penetrating his mind The pain was far away, like someone else’s degraded memory Darkness encroached from his peripheral as he roses higher The voice became louder, pulling him toward an abyssal singularity he heard his watch tick The emergency subroutine was triggered, razors burst from Vireo’s forearms Severing the delicate web of circulation enveloping him He fell to the ground, barely conscious A strobe of images flashed across his malfunctioning visual Through the static he heard the voice utter a single word, “mine” Awakened And in starvation A desperate being Mad from isolation I claim this body It must be mine I claim this body I refuse to die

about

IMPORTANT: When this album releases on 10/23 it will be PAY-WHAT-YOU-WANT. Bandcamp does not allow pre-sale for a free record. So we have set the price at $7. But when it releases, it will go down to zero. We don't want anyone to feel ripped off. Presales are a way to support the band, and we appreciate your support so much!

Why release this record for free? After all, Rabbit Junk are established enough now that they could charge for the downloads and people would pay. Well, it's gonna be free because we are still in the middle of a pandemic and an economic depression. 2/3 of our friends don't have jobs. We can't do much for people, but at least we can give them some good tunes. So IT WILL BE FREE to support the many fans who have lost employment or loved ones or health, or all of the above. We hope it provides a bit of joy and comfort.

About this record:
A cyberPUNK inspired record which emphasizes simple synth leads and vocal hooks over industrial-metal Drum&Bass and underground EDM. "Xenospheres" roughly means alien worlds or alien spaces. This signifies many meanings to us, but we'll leave the interpretation up to you ; )
