about

Lone Star Lovers and Adam are inspired by instances of homophobic violence.

Alternative Truths was inspired by a very candid interview with Tracy Emin where she spoke frankly about her rape and her abortions.

Afternoon Slump is just some crap. None of these songs have been made to romanticise, glorify or cash-in on the suffering they depict. I just want remind people that horrible things happen for pathetic reasons.

Track Name: Lone Star Lovers
Oh Daddy dearest,
Do you think I look pretty?
I want you to say,
I'm the prettiest girl in the world.
Oh Daddy dearest,
Will you love me forever?
Hold me in your arms and never let me go.

I'm not a little girl anymore,
I've got to make my own way in life,
I've got to make my own decisions,
And there's something I've been meaning to tell you,

Oh Daddy dearest,
I never wanted to upset you,
I can still remember,
Your drunken, violent temper,
Oh Daddy dearest,
I just want you to be happy,
Can't you say the same for me?
Track Name: Alternative Truths
Sanity hangs on a linear perspective,
A bruised vulva; the destruction of womanhood,
Martyred children, the scars of love defective,
Hollowed out for the love of all that's good,

Alternative truths, you're always splitting hairs,
Between experience and control,
Reality, submission, a murky transition,
Experience fills a gaping hole,

Abandoment hangs a primal hysterectomy,
Blistered. Fractured. Promiscuous. Coronation.
Create / slut, create / slut,
Fucking a death and sarcastic correlations
Track Name: Afternoon Slump
You sing it best when you're being sincere,
I can tell with an untrained ear,
When you're being fake and when you channel your fears,
When you've known something for years and years,

I like it best when you're being false,
When your singing falls a little short,
When you try to fit a limerick to a waltz,
When you're cooing venom and barking schmaltz,

I love when you crash with a thump,
Straight into the bowels of an afternoon slump,
I love it when you sing and I get a kick,
I love it when you sing, it makes me sick.
Track Name: Adam
Hey you fucking faggot,
Where the hell are you going?
Why are you in such a hurry?
Come here and have a chat,
Are going 'round to your boyfriend?
Are you going to suck his dick?
Are you going to fuck his arse or,
Take it like a bitch?

Come here and take your medicine,
You know that you are sick,
You're a sick and twisted fuck,
You know it's going to hurt but,
It's just a little prick,
It'll help in the long run,

What's the matter babe?
You're awfully quiet tonight,
Don't say that it's nothing,
I know when something's not right,
I wish that you were more open,
I want to help you out,

Come here and take your medicine,
You know that you are sick,
You're a sick and twisted fuck,
You know it's going to hurt but,
It's just a little prick,
It'll help in the long run,
You know that you can trust me,
I only want what's best,
I've never done you wrong,
I want to keep you safe and,
I want to keep you hidden,
Keep you away from harm,
