DiscoStu A gritty little set of songs taking the listener from grungy lows to ethereal highs. I could easily close my eyes and be in a smoke filled pub in the 90's..my favourite place to be. Favorite track: I Hope You Die.

barenboos The first track until the last track is a journey into a world with fine lyrics a remarkable voice and music that fits as a melted dripping candle around an empty wine bottle. It is still unfortunate that I couldn't arrange a gig last time you were in The Netherlands. So when you come back again I would really love to hear all of this beautiful music in real life.
Keep on going making great stuff like this and come back to Europe soon :-) Favorite track: I Hope You Die.

Track Name: Baby Bird
She's my baby bird, he hates me calling out to her
Reminds him of his love for me when I was 17
I can't believe it's true, he looked into my eyes and said
The world has broke in two, and you are on your own
Just like I've always been, but now knowing what it's like
Without you

We are all animals and part of this land and he said oh, impatiently
I thought I could trust you now, to understand. And he said no, no, no

She's my baby bird, clawing at me from inside
I knew that it was time to let her out so she could fly
I wanted her to be mine. Her beak was pecking and her wings
Were stretching and my heart was beating her blood as we broke apart

She's my baby bird, he hates me calling out to her
Reminds him of his love
I can't believe it's true, he looked into my eyes and said
The world has broke in two, and you are on your own
Track Name: I Hope You Die
I became a mother, a decision maker
Depended on for survival
I became a machine in detecting empathy
You are a threat to me and everyone I love

Chorus
I sincerely hope you die
To feel you underneath my feet
I sincerely hope you die
I’d breathe a sigh of relief

I could make it happen to you
If I had one goal to achieve
If the fortune angels had mercy on me
This wouldn’t be another kick in the shins
I don’t want you going on to begin again

Chorus
I sincerely hope you die
To feel you underneath my feet
I sincerely hope you die
I’d breathe a sigh of relief

You’re going down
I hope you die
Track Name: Cannibal
I found a peaceful spot and he wants to be my friend
but I'm a cannibal, he wants to be my friend

Relaxing here in the dark, my sticky lizard tongue
pull it back in my mouth, I don't eat my friends

Expanding lungs on my rock, the venom heating up
he pulls me out of the dark to cool it down and slow
now I know that I don't eat my friends
Track Name: Fountain
Stand under
Fountain
Cool skin
Washed clean
Wash him from me
Along comes the wind
A big bone shaker
Blows off my clothes
Completely naked, what to do?
When everything's
Left you


It is he
Vision to me
Bearing leaves
Petals green
Covers me
In all my shame
Hand in hand
He's my big man, stays with me
Some forty days, no words
Then goes away
I cry again
On my hill I wait for wind
And on my hill I wait for wind
And on my hill I wait for wind
And on my hill I wait for wind
And on my hill I wait for wind
And on my hill I wait for wind
Track Name: The Roses
The roses like it when you cut them fast, you take your time slicing through them with your fingernails making them bleed.

You got your filthy pain from me.

The roses like it when you speak softly, you raised your voice. I'm trying not to hear that you cut them off and you pray grow again please.

You got your filthy pain from me.

And the white light's over your head and the pill about to drop and we all say how could, how could you do this to you. But I had my scissors in my pocket for you.
The roses like it when you persuade them over and over again, the roses like it when you leave them alone.

The white light's over your head and the beep about to stop, and we all stay wanting wanting more from you, but only what you were before darling. The roses like it when you hold the cat down on its back, the roses like it when you leave them alone.
Track Name: Funeral Song
Smile and wake
lean back you're in my way
I lost control, I told the boy he's getting old
all over your body, stuck in the mud and waiting for me
to paralyse myself in sleep

And my friends came around and addressed it one by one
leave her alone, no no. The time was on her lips, in her lungs

Now I am justified in spending those days with you inside
feeling around this construction site wanting to find you there

I can sense it in you like she could sense the crushed pills in her meat
others will, but I refuse to eat

And her friends knew it all by assessing how I walked. Leave her alone, no no. The time was on her lips, in their lungs
Track Name: Kind Beast
I'm a kind beast hiding from the city and the streets
I mean well and I want to be in the middle of it
But every time I move my paw I knock your perfumes off the mirror shelf and onto the floor

And I miss you, everyone
with innocence, playing, singing
even though I crush ant bodies just by turning over in my bed

There's a low light where I write my postcards under
Sometimes I pause from writing and look very hard
I see little wings dancing underneath the yellow glow

and I bless them, every one. With innocence, playing, singing
just keep wishing that my light doesn't burn the tiny heads

And I miss you, everyone
with innocence, playing, singing
even though I crush ant bodies just by turning over in my bed
