about

The Ronettes meet Courtney Love at a drum circle and decide to jam in Peter Murphy's basement while Siouxsie Sioux makes flapjacks.

lyrics

You wouldn't know it to look at me
But I lay in loathing for hours
late at night when you're probably asleep
in a fetal position next to a stranger who you think completes you.
I, alone with my mentation, writhe in agony
at a loss for words for feelings far from fathoming.

Last night in bed, and I hated myself then too,
my entire body jerked before I fell asleep

Agitated, no desire to go anywhere, I lay there seething in self pity
I know if you knew you wouldn't care. I lay there knowing you wouldn't care.

I must have gotten it all wrong so I said sorry and you said, "good." The detachment was prevalent.
This existence of ours is tension splitting at the seams;
insomniacs tore at the stitches at night to get it right.
They were there all night. Just trying to get it right.

I know stewing like this makes me sick
Incapacitation inhibits my ability to get past the want for blame; it was you. It was you. It was you, it was you.

In my false comfort I lay
Negating the reality
The facade will one day disintegrate
For now I cater to the clorox nightmare.

about

Babay Jicks and The Ghoul Fiends Austin, Texas

An ill-conceived avant-garde garage band whose members went without oxygen for twenty minutes and forgot how to play their instruments, leaving the typically demure lead singer to cry and moan while an imaginary audience jeers in derision.
