Sin Triangle 04:28
Got to work on my brain then, Crawling back to my grave and, I'm certain that I'm gonna die this time No doubt is left inside my mind tonight so im just gonna wait for nausea to set in, I’m peacing out at eleven, The friendly girls are trying to comfort me As if I’m a depressed chick at a frat party Two faced bitches never lie and therefore I never lie Diagram this sin triangle for me tonight because I don't know what to say A sickness by another name Wouldn't be sweet either but With luck, it would at least look much more tame I’ve got to work on my face now, I’m wearing shades when it's dark out but don’t you worry I'm just being cool, Like everybody else around this school, And maybe I wanna see him, but then again I'm an isolationist And on an accident, I'm like Japan Before they went and traded stuff to other lands Two faced bitches never lie Therefore I never lie Diagram this sin triangle: but the biblical kind and not sine, I don't know what to say A sickness by another name Wouldn't be sweet either but With luck, it would at least, like, not suck with luck it would at like not suck some bitches never lie therefore i never lie Diagram this sin triangle: but the biblical kind and not sine, I don't know what to say A sickness by another name Wouldn't be sweet either but With luck, it would at least look much more tame wouldn’t be sweet either but with luck it would at least look much more tame

flying around a corner scrutinizing all the screens that you’re on, well naturally i want to know your secret you figured out a something that you are now expressing through manipulation of a master degree just with sleight of hand you U make MAKE the whole room vanish yeah i study good magicians twentieth paragraph i’m trying to entertain a deeper understanding of whatever it is you’re on an absolute basket case in unassuming basket casing i think this late in life i want to learn to do the same if i tried to do the same tricks, i would end up with trix cereal’s mascot suffocated in a hat and half a torso cut in half from messing the box routine up bad. that, the rabbit - and a non-comedic lawsuit on top of that just with sleight of hand you U make MAKE the whole room vanish yeah i study good magicians take my greatest fear make it disappear yeah i study good magicians

what a sophisticated space what a well educated population what socialite would go donate what it takes to own this place for 60 days in a sophisticated congregation there’s a collection of a space that puts on banquets that i have vice-reported on from the balcony and the wall the worst permission slip you can imagine wouldn’t gain entrance to anything other than who would dole out all the tickets to imagine that don’t go to anything at all good luck ever knowing yourself you’re sitting in a room and speaking well reporting on the temperature fake-deep, non-eloquently, every hour? lost deep inside the MFA ten mental breakdowns we are navigating i think in all regards i’ve found a welcome home amongst the people made of stone now if you wait in between what did you say man and what did you mean? whatever it’s just good etiquette to sink the model ships a model pirate and a model wave two varieties, oceanic and friendly if the news is really great now if you really think the time is running out to say all the great things you thought of today you’re more than right, you are englightened, knowing that your place is never to fill anything at all let alone space good luck summationed in a place like this taking ok care of myself scan the spiral stairs teleport back to the middle of the room i can’t give my mind back but i can try to take it back to me take it back to scanning the spiral stairs and teleporting back into the middle of the room i can’t give my my mind back but i can try to take it back and i can try to make it work too take it back to me

at least i can advance through peacetime in a trance bad days too i’ve no restrictions on the mood just the degree of effort - usage of the brain, process phantom pain eye strain too, the strength of which should be profuse and add to the collective hurt so what practical matters must i settle first, what practical matters must be put down, which ones to shoot with tranquilizers, leave them falling on the ground and made into a bearskin rug but get this, the bearskin is a list and i’m too distracted to go explaining this so i’ll just canon stamp it i want to see you at night another day, another time, i can’t stand in this lit hallway anymore i want to be liked and despite a past of bad ideas and advice, i sit still and wonder why I ever tried to think that you were any different
6.
i wanna write a book and put it in your mailbox and when you go to pick it up you would send it back to amazon i wanna write a list i wanna pepper it with everything unvalidated just to see if you’ll agree with me cause that’s all fine with me toeing on the line of reality and the mud in your mind where the sidewalk ends is the only place we can be good friends i wanna circle you like a rabbit courting both my shoes for fun we just assume characters and never get confused i wanna play a song nobody in the world interprets wrong but that’s hilarious at this point everyone is caked in mud and that’s all fine with me toeing on the line of reality and the mud in your mind where the sidewalk ends is the only place we can be good friends cause that’s all fine with me toeing on the line of reality and the mud in your mind where the sidewalk ends is the only place we can be good friends we can be good friends https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-oogCXNVKHU

Mouth Log 02:55
on my phone, i’ve got a list of food i ate and people i kissed because of this i'm losing weight and batting my eyes like siren bait just like a hate-watched series i catalog life dearly dreary how-tos on half-assed self abuse probably when i'm 22 then i'll be doing something new, because i lose attention fast, and i get bored right off the bat, but i hate class, and i hate work and doing nothing's even worse but i still curse and complain every day if i thrive best in hate machines and shallow tabloid magazines and groups for memes, where everyone fights and tries to make straight white boys cry then will i die still swallowing all sides of conflict, possibly i’m 3 percent non-hikikomori 97 speaks and now i'm there, fuzzy socks and shampooed hair, cyst acne bare, i’m eating healthy, watching Ina cook for Jeffery i'm kinda pissed if this is the real me at least i know who i kissed and what i eat la la la

"What stands out to me ... is her songwriting ability, particularly the way she imbues her innately infectious melodies with an actor’s ear for emotional inflection." - Chris DeVille, Stereogum

"Her optimistic melodies, the Avalanches-y vocal samples on "Sin Triangle" and The Blow-style drums on "Sophisticated Space" … what a complete record!" - Duncan Cooper, The Fader

"Despite her habit of describing herself as unsure or erratic on No Dogs Allowed, Gish is remarkably consistent in capturing what it’s like to enter your twenties without a clear sense of whether you’re living life correctly, or what living life correctly even means." - Nina Corcoran, Pitchfork

"In No Dogs Allowed, Gish showcases everything great about her previous releases—her trademark witty lyricism, criminally catchy choruses, and the layers and layers of melodies tailored to perfection—while introducing an even fuller and fine-tuned sonic energy." - Olivia Gehrke, Boston Hassle
