Nikki Trying to find something on Bandcamp to keep me from listening to the Mu EP again, ended up at this instead. Oh well! Her voice is so compellingly eerie to my ear. Favorite track: Senses.

Track Name: Hush Hush
I think that there may be
a misunderstanding
concerning when you held me
chewed me all those bad things
I loved it when you grasped me and when you squeezed me
but it don't mean that I require or need thee
like you assumed then as we lay there panting
finally feeling satisfied physically

Hush hush

I won't wrap around you when we're sleeping
I won't touch your tender lips with mine so gently
I won't greet you first I'll keep my lips zipped tight
I won't quench your thirst I'll leave your self to satisfy
I won't grab your hands in the sight of other eyes
I won't wear the truth I'll keep us in disguise

Hush hush

And I won't make a fuss in fact I'll do it with a smile
I cannot fight lust and I don't intend to try
if you wish to be hush hush if I do or don't know why
I'll just keep the door closed shut so that no one can get by

Hush hush
Track Name: She Is
She's deceiving she's misleading
the way she moves is always leaving
leading men one at a time
and charming them with her enticing eyes

She's retrieving she's retrieving
their beating hearts warm fresh and bleeding
grieving when they become blind
and seeing then she can't make up her mind

But when the penny drops and all thats left
are all the thoughts inside her head
she'll want to talk but her jaw is clenched
you can't take a lot when there's nothing left

She's retreating she's retreating
this spinning earth no longer needing
her simple steps followed close behind
her widening breadth through peoples minds

Now that the penny's dropped all that is left
is a walking pile of flesh
its movements are quite limited
you can't take a lot now theres nothing left
Track Name: Senses
I am thick yet I am thin
if you look you'll see through my skin
I am sick yet I am young
if you care to check my yellow tongue

Hear me tick put your ear against
my thudding chest in awkward embrace
hear me crick where my limbs connect
my weakened bones from what you've fetched

Feel my strength all that is left
my once powerful arms and legs
feel my length all that you've met
my might may quiver with content

See my youth and see my growth
my innocence and hardened soles
see my inquisitive interest
my curious eclectic intent

Senses

Taste my melancholy sweat
my sadness that seeps from my head
taste my teeth without regret
my mind will never forget

Smell my blood as if a shark
my ichor leads you though the dark
smell my desperate desire
my mischief may make you a liar

I have my doubts that though shall see
feel hear, taste and smell these parts of me
until then I must wait patiently
not like I did when I wasn't looking

Senses
Track Name: Tizzy
You can come round me
on me my face my hands
you can hit me hold me
whichever way you can
you can dye me try me
at sea or on land
you can kiss me or cut me
as long as its just me
but you don't just want me you want
one two twenty three
anything you fancy

Its saddening I'm sinking
and thinking its making
me look bad to the man
that would hold me softly
and kiss cheeks be in awe
listening, to the words id sing
to he but baby
where art thou existing

im in a tizzy

you cannot hear me clearly
my case my demands
you cannot fix me coldly
slightly broken by you man
you cannot buy me find me
with your eyes ears and hands
you cannot miss me or pluck me
but you won't its just me

thats in a tizzy
Track Name: Gentlemen
Stay away from me
your kindness is quite sharp
unlike neglect
which feels like nothing at all
but makes your heart sprint
when its over

Stay away from me
so I can remain
curled in the dark here
with naught but my minds prattling energy
to keep my fingers moving
and the rest restless

Stay away from me
I am a kiddie pool
you’ll only get wet to your ankles
even though you wish to cool entirely
and swim a hundred laps
at sea

Stay away from me
my arms are long
I can effortlessly reach you
and snatch what I need
and then push you away
with that very same limb
on that very same day

Stay
Away
Stay
Away
