My brother told me I should change my name to something else
'cause if you're making music, anonymity can help.
The one thing you should never do is ever be yourself.
My brother told me I should change my name to something else

He told me to pick something stupid and ridiculous,
A gimmick and a novelty makes people curious.

What do you see in your mind when you hear me say Twistfuck?

(Give me a sine)

I guess I took all his advice a little bit to heart
But I don't want to slap a bullshit name on all my art.
When everything is meaningless and less is meaningful,
Fuck SEO, I use my given name on principle.

Twistfuck isn't appropriate.
Twistfuck doesn't express who I am.
I'm a serious man.
