about

The Dorm is a constantly updated album, consisting of Indie-Folk songs, composed and recorded in the University of Tampa dorms. While his schedule is overwhelmed with procrastinating, singer-songwriter Dmitrii, aka Ronkonkoma, uses simple recording techniques and puts priority on capturing poor bursts of inspiration, rather than mastering ideas. Though The Dorm may initially look like a bunch of love songs it is also about appreciating simple pleasures like hanging out with friends, pulling all-nighters, suffering from occasional melancholy, learning about self irony, being hung over and late for work.

Track Name: Relationship
I'm sending you flowers
I'm trying to save our
Relationship

It's not in my power
Within next few hours
To be by your side

And every time I try hard
Every time it just don't work out
Every time you'r making me sad
I forgive and forget

I know that you are tired
Of waiting for my
Coming back home

Just please don't surrender
In five days I'll get there
And I will love you more

And every time I try hard
Every time it doesn't work out
Every time you'r making me sad
I forgive and forget, and that's what I get

She said, hey, the decision is made, there is no time to wait
Gotta go, gotta run, gotta find something new
It's just me, it's not you

She said, I feel like we don't belong, it just takes you so long
I know I can be wrong, but I'm not playing along

It felt like a treason
Your hysteric reasons
For us falling apart

But I was buying clothes that I thought you would like
And I was listening to the music that I know you like
And I was reading all your tweets to better understand your mind

Well you may say it's nothing, you may say it's not love
But let me ask you baby, if you know anyone
Who would've done all those things and stood for what he's got
I guess I'm keeping the presents that I got for you

And every time I try hard
Every time it just falls apart
Every time you'r making me sad
I forgive and forget, and that's what I get

She said, hey, the decision is made, there is no time to wait
Gotta go, gotta run, gotta find something new
It's just me, it's not you

She said, I feel like we don't belong, it just takes you so long
I know I can be wrong, but I'm not playing along
Track Name: Friends With Benefits
Well I'm feeling so bad
Cause I always make you sad
Well I'm feeling so down
But I'm never in around
Well you say it's alright
But last night I made you cry
Well you say it's alright

I will leave after I am done
I am here just cause I want some fun
I haven't called you for a week
My blood is cold and I don't even think of you

And every time you see me you know
I'm not here to stay, I've got to go
Friends with benefits we are
But looks like it's just too much for your heart

Well I'm feeling so bad
But I always make you sad
Well I'm feeling so down
But I'm never in around
Well you say it's alright
But I always make you cry
Well you say it's alright

Everybody knows what you got inside
Everyone can see what you are trying to hide

Teardrops falling on the floor
You've been crying all night all alone

And every time you see me you know
I'm not here to stay, I've got to go
Friends with benefits we are
But looks like it's just too much for your heart

It's hard

World is full of guys like me
They fuck you and then they would disappear
Some girls won't even mind
But I know I know I made you cry
Cause I got no soul, got no integrity
And I do not care what you think of me
Track Name: Travel
Sometimes, I see
Me and you, you and me
Get on the plane
And fly away

The plane has touched down
We step on foreign ground
This new air we breath
Makes us feel so free

Emotions overwhelm
When we explore new land
The sense of discovery
Makes us want to keep

On living further
Go places we've heard of
And take more pictures
To save the moment

They can not take from you and me
What we have learned, or what we've seen
There is always some other place
To see and to experience

Every time I close my eyes
Itchy feeling right in my mind
There are mountains to conquer
There are oceans to wonder

When I grow up
I'll get a credit card
I'll spend all the money
To travel just you and me

I want to know more
Don't have time to be bored
I have my bags packed
I have my mind set

On living further
Go places I've heard of
And take more pictures
To save the moment

They can not take from you and me
What we have learned, or what we've seen
There is always some other place
To see and to experience

Every time I close my eyes
Itchy feeling right in my mind
There are mountains to conquer
There are oceans to wonder
Track Name: Give Me Back
I buy you things you don't deserve
You stole my dreams, my heart is hurt
I'm looking forward to the day
When I'll be able to say hey hey
I don't need you anymore

You are the cutest girl in town
My friends keep saying that I have found what everybody is looking for
But they would never understand
That I'm so lost, that I'm in pain hey hey
Like I have never been before

Hey let me live with my own way
I don't want to play your game
I don't want to love you anymore
And stop, stop controlling my brain
I don't want to stay the same
Give me back my heart, give me back my soul

And every time I got something on my mind
That "something" is probably you
And every time people ask if I'm alright
I would probably say "no"

I buy you things you don't deserve
You stole my dreams, my heart is hurt
I'm looking forward to the day
When I'll be able to say hey hey

When you need me, I'm there for you
When you need cash, I'm there for you, bitch
You do not need me to survive
But I need you to stay to alive, I I
Look like I'm gonna die

Hey let me live with my own way
I don't want to play your game
I don't want to love you anymore
And stop, stop controlling my brain
I don't want to stay the same
Give me back my heart, give me back my soul

And every time I got something on my mind
That "something" is probably you
And every time people ask if I'm alright
I would probably say "no"
Track Name: Hillsborough River
Woke up today, I woke up late
Got nowhere to go so I would rather stay at home
Woke up today, I woke up alone
My cat has died six years ago, I know

Well I know I know I know I know what you said
I will take it easy I won't be upset
Every every every every everywhere I go
There are so many people and I'm so alone

That's me at the bar and I've been there all day
That's me at the bar and I like my drinks straight
I'm getting to tired and too upset
I'm missing people that I haven't yet met

Well I know I know I know I know I know I know
I will take it easy I will take it slow
Every every every every everywhere I go
There are so many people and I'm so alone

Hillsborough river reflects the light
Of idle Tampa every night
My heart is bitter, Hillsborough river
Caught my reflection right in the middle

I'm miles away from the ones I love
Time's flying by it sets us apart
Some friends will stay till the end of my life
I take them for granted and I don't know why

Well I know I know I know I know I know I know
I will take it easy I will take it slow
Every every every every everywhere I go
There are so many people and I'm so alone

Hillsborough river reflects the light
Of idle Tampa every night
My heart is bitter, Hillsborough river
Caught my reflection right in the middle
