Bikini BDRK 02:00
Daughter of a rebel mother Mary revolutionary Mistress of a thousand nights The burden hand was hers to carry Sister of the nemesis Resistance isn’t just a test Virgin birth of Icarus Goddess bitch of incest Bikini Body Bikini Diet Bikini Ready Bikini Kill… KILL Whiter than a prom queen Redder than a rose Keep on asking Alice But we both know how it goes Fondly haunting debutantes With books above their nose Shoes and ships and sealing wax Unraveling her bows

Don’t look at me that way I might hypnotize you, mind control I’ll kill your brain with kaleidoscope If you scope me out A thousand moons in Aquarius Can you turn the tides, cast your spells? Metallic spectral analysis of the looking glass You want to watch me pass the time You think you’re helping, get in line Just leave me to my own devices So I can unite the divided Got you down on your knees, tell you it’s a sin While you’re begging at the bosom of capitalism Will you know me from Adam when the steam moves in? Cuz when the city floods… xxxy xxxy xxxy xxx, xxxy xxxy xxxy xxx xxxx xxxx xxxx xxx, xxxx xxxx xxxx xxx xyxy xyxy xyxy xyx, xyxy xyxy xyxy xyx Who do you really think I am? Some heady heart to hold your hand This brave new world is not so brave This future shock is all the rage Got you down on your knees, tell you it’s a sin While you’re begging at the bosom of capitalism Will you know me from Adam when the steam moves in? Cuz when the city floods… xxxy xxxy xxxy xxx, xxxy xxxy xxxy xxx xxxx xxxx xxxx xxx, xxxx xxxx xxxx xxx xyxy xyxy xyxy xyx, xyxy xyxy xyxy xyx TO THE HEART MACHINE!

Bitchshifter 02:56
I don’t think I was meant to be happy as a human I got this cough that I can’t shake off and I can’t afford the co-pay The mystique is gone Golden age has passed No new renaissance Iacta alea est Why now? Why anything? You put your money where your mouth is then I hope you choke I hope you choke I can't connect to anyone cuz I pulled out all the wires Modern life is a funny joke, ha ha ha ha ha haaaaa Nuance disappears Harden all our hearts Spirits in the cloud Iacta alea est Why now? Why anything? You put your money where your mouth is then I hope you choke I hope you choke

Yuge!) Everything was bigger Let's go back to Channel number 12 when everything was better (Everything was better) Everything was better (There's something on the wing...) Everything was better? Let’s go back to Home Alone II when everything was better (Tim Curry was a butler) He was a concierge (But he looked like a butler) He wasn’t a butler!

I'm pissing out of boredom Why do we all make the same mistakes? My face hurts I can't sleep While watching Rick and Morty, I realized that you and I hadn't spoken for some time How much longer will this take? You have to pick a side as soon as you come Ambiguity, the unbearable burden And then they say the lesson is to be yourself Yeah, at the end of the credits they didn't think you'd stay for Don't they know there are different birds everywhere? What a time to be alive (Call their bluff. Do it!) Cease Desist Resist Arrest I must Insist That you Confess You’re on My list Close to The vest I get The gist I’m not Impressed Everything is NOT coming up Milhouse Everything is not just a click away I'm not a snowflake. I'm a Chinese throwing star

Nice Man 02:14
He seemed like such a nice man I can’t believe he did it He read me like a right hand And he was on Time He always had a good word High society ties And when the shit went down I heard that it was all lies Are we losing our minds? Here’s some gas, got a light? Do we know who to blame? I think we’re losing this... He seemed like such a cool dude This came as such a shock One minute things were so chill Next thing he’s whipping out his cock Where do we go from hear... say? What do we do now? You saw what she was wearing That justifies it somehow Are we losing our minds? Here’s some gas, got a light? Do we know who to blame? I think we’re losing this...

Coptic Rock 03:33
You can’t even look me in the eye I wonder why You said you didn’t come here to fight And I said I did I look around, we’re deep underground Where are these lights coming from? If the devil is in the details, Then summon the devil. Your mouth, your mouth, your mouth (Shut it!) Cleopatra had nine lives We’re on number five The queen was wrong: words are not weightless Words are not free Our names engraved, fill with smoke On the monolith obelisk The sun, the stones, and the river Styx I awake, I alight, I arrive Your mouth, your mouth, your mouth (Shut it!) Marie Laveau.

Stephen Malkmus, Andrew Falkous Coincidence? Yes. I'm sorry you feel that way We're breaking lots of shit, like our hearts and our guitars I'm sorry you feel that way What did you let her do? And what did it mean to you? The irony is palpable, you condescending bitch What did you let her do? What? Nothing. What? Nothing. What? Nothing. I said What! I said nothing! I've burned your name in candle flame Halved apples by the core The writing's above the door I've banished you in Theban script from all the places I have lived I'm sorry you feel that way

about

Sapling Massachusetts

"Most bands that fall into the noise punk category are either pure noise and aggression or electronic near dance music. Sapling exist in both worlds, being both punk and groovy dance music. Plus, their songs feel both silly and completely serious at the same time, which is never a bad thing."
