Freakshow 02:26
I have darkness and I have light I am whole so I can’t deny any side of myself Everybody loves a freakshow They don’t like the freak though Come on baby Why do this to me? I’m alright Love me right
2.
Life held open the door and then it tripped me on my way in I will never walk through another held open door ever I know I am strong but strength don’t get me high I get so bored and I want to feel alive You are the last thread of my youth inside of my head and as I lose you I mourn my own death These seven stages they’re lasting ages I know I am strong but strength don’t get me high I get so bored and I want to feel alive I know I am strong but strength don’t get me high I’ve heard a cackling voice inside my head my whole life
3.
Dancer 01:39
As a dancer you say you dance for yourself but you dance for the judges just like everyone else You stand there You stand there on the stage Yeah, you stand in the spotlight and absorb their gaze They say, It looks like you’re heart was in heart was in it to win it but you’ve got to work on your posture your posture your posturing We’ll assign you a partner in the next round So smile with your teeth Turn that frown upside down Make it look like you love her Make it look like you’re lovers

Paint fumes and cold rooms Who I was Young love and drug use Who I am Isn’t it such a good thing that I’m not sad like I used to be? Isn’t it such a good thing? Why do my eyelids sometimes feel like warm coffins for my eyes? If nothing else happens then will I still be surprised? Isn’t it such a good thing that I’m not sad like I used to be? Isn’t it such a good thing?

Gun 03:47
I can’t drive without thinking about all the bad things that have happened to me I get to thinking evil is all around I get to thinking that then it’s all I see even in me You watch my body writhing but you don’t leave me You don’t leave me My dog starts shaking and I just can’t believe me Just can’t believe me I’m gonna get a tattoo on my leg of me pointing a gun at my own head at my own head There’s another gun in the other one pointing outwards telling you not to fuck with me Do not fuck with me You watch my body writhing but you don’t leave me You don’t leave me My dog starts shaking and I just can’t believe me

about

Floating Room is the musical project of Portland based multidisciplinary Uchinanchu American artist and DIY veteran Maya Stoner. Their latest EP, Tired and True, was written by Stoner and recorded in the summer of 2019 against a backdrop of intense personal transition.

Lead single “Held Open Door” is a meditation on dimming innocence set to jagged guitar pyrotechnics à la Deerhunter and Television. “Freakshow” is a self-professed “pop hit” concerning Stoner’s perceived pariahdom within Portland’s blindingly white, furtively racist punk scene.

Tired and True is being released independently by Stoner digitally and on vinyl. It features contributions from Jon Scheid (Duck. Little Brother, Duck!, Dreamdecay), Aaron Liu (Two Moons), Jared Ridabock (Anne, Wild Guess), and Mo Troper.
