about

The Bedroom Witch Los Angeles, California

Cast as the misunderstood maker of the veil, the Bedroom Witch lyrically chants spells alluding to an inevitable apocalypse while embodying the creative exhaustion of isolation. Her aesthetics build on dark pop ballads, giallo-style progressions through mysterious allure and a danceable haunting that produces the nostalgic agony of Hell/Limbo theories ... more

Track Name: Nothing Is Right About Me
was the water warm? tell me by the shore
with your arms wrapped around me
there's a calming storm where my sisters burned
you'll never hear them crying

my flaw is that I forgive you
I will miss you
all's lost,
without a purpose I feel restless
and I will wait to be there again
I can't undo the tension
misery me, i'm still incomplete
so I will keep you on the surface
I will never leave my closed doors open

cause it must be that nothing is right
nothing is right about me

no i cannot tell if you're the one that I like
(be humble my child, you're in the presence of time)

so it must be that nothing is right about me

there's a sudden urge to feel the worst
i'm all about disaster
it's alarming to risk losing you
i never thought you'd matter

my flaw is that i'm obsessive
i'm a death wish
all's lost
without a purpose I feel restless
and I will wait to be there again
I can't undo the tension
misery me, i'm still incomplete
so I will keep you on the surface
I will never leave my closed doors open

cause it must be that nothing is right about me

now i'm tearing at the seams
picture it clean
I know I tore you somewhere in between
Track Name: Bleak Future
facing the coffin's dreams
we celebrate with grief
smother the bells with rust
and bask in ancient lust

I feel the years consuming (I feel the years)
I see the sun diluting (I see the sun)

I know my demon's resurrecting
to draw its presence when I call you by name
I wonder what I would say

how do I explain before it happens to you or me?
and you can forget me waking the morning
tomorrow is certain
the future is bleak

conjured by the hands of greed
the ceremony's weaved
lovers in the fountain burn the contours of the earth

suffer through the centuries passed
you would never stand a chance

I know my demon's resurrecting
I know my demons

my palms are crumbling up (crumbled up)
the lines have shown us enough (shown us enough)
horizons inching away
in ruins we have no place
we have no place
Track Name: Ceremonial Serenades
this is the daunting charm of love after dark
a familiar pace abandoned by the heart
and when the curtains drawn
do we still fear the way it longs?

lead the cadence of our graves
in ceremonial serenades

promises lost in the apocalypse
my flowers are blooming
all that remains of this paradise
is blessed on our lips

this is the daunting charm of love after dark
a familiar pace abandoned by the heart
and when the curtains drawn
do we still fear the way it longs?

carry the plate of fantasies
oh, serve it to the plague of destiny

promises lost in the apocalypse
(all my secrets will reveal the end)
my flowers are blooming
all that remains of this paradise
(all my trust is tainted)
is blessed on our lips
my flowers spread darkness

misfortune, the ace of spades
ceremonial serenades

promises lost in the apocalypse
my flowers are blooming
all that remains of this paradise
is blessed on our lips

promises lost in the apocalypse
the choir rejoices
Track Name: Absence of Light
phased by the moon as it phases through migraines
watch it wrap the ocean's body in waves
she says innocence will fade as you age
but nobody told me how tragedy craves
in the absence of light
I've forgotten my baby's name

some nights I just wish it away
with violet in my eyes and a softened face
with a hunger for life (it's just a matter of time)
before I call it mine

phased by the moon as it phases through migraines
watch it wrap the ocean's body in waves
she says innocence will fade as you age
but nobody told me how tragedy craves
in the absence of light
I remember everything

some part of me clings to a part of me lost
but we both know that it's never enough

she says innocence will fade as you age
but nobody told me that tragedy stays
in the absence of light
i've forgotten my baby's name

she says innocence will fade as you age
now the body awaits (somebody you love was birthed in your pain)
she holds hands with the devil and paints
a portrait named after all your mistakes

nobody told me that tragedy stays
nobody told me
Track Name: Drawing Conclusions
playing a part in your own distractions
with conversations that never happened
i'm only looking to soothe
the rug burns
from when I had first met you

oh the gravity of hurt has turned in deep
it never happens to you like it does to me
you'll notice when we meet
that I drew your conclusion so long ago
and I know it never had to look like this

we look for answers in the sky
look the mirror in the eyes

like it does to me the seasons seem to miss
that I drew your conclusion so long ago
and I know it never had to come to this

the flaws that we've denied sink like marbles through the seams
how could you be so blind?
(here where the planets speak through me)
when they come knocking your dreams
Track Name: We Will Feed Ourselves
the grapes, since nightfall, have dried up like skin
exhaustion and famine this harvest will give
my soul aligns to your voice though I have heard it wrong before

we're talking at the same time
let's call it a night
we like it better when we wait
we like it better when it taints
some find it hard to demonstrate

one day there will be strife when we bear the shame of love
one day I will resign but my heart will ponder on
until you give it a break

since nightfall, we've dried up like skin
you're just as disgusting as I've always been
your soul is ice and it's thawing out the taste of your words

we will feed ourselves
i wish i could die
Track Name: In Sadness I Sin
(i've reached a point of no return
in sadness i sin for you
in sadness i sin for two)

there's not a moment in my life when I can't sense
the way it affects me
moments in my life where I reflect on how i'm unlearning love
i use to push it away
and it can take some time for us to see the stains
it's you and I alone, the night we kiss goodbye
tell me a lie

(there's a blemish in my heart, being with you)

I have gone too far in a field of fire
I'm tempted by a passion's loss
find it in doubt
when i'm holding onto you I saturate

I so selfishly left a mess for you to keep from me

there's not a moment in my life when I can't sense
the way it affects me
moments in my life where I can rest in somebody else's bed
and it can take some time for trust to resonate

there's not a moment in my life when I can't sense
the way it affects me
moments in my life where I reflect
there's not a moment in my life when I can't sense
the way it affects me
moments in my life where I can rest

and it goes on and on and on..
Track Name: Crowned Fool
I know you still see me the way I use to
I'm crowned the fool of reason with every move

I don't care if it lost a meaning
it never had one for sure
the other side is all deceiving
and we're all vessels to burn

I know you don't see me the way I do
I'm crowned the fool of reason when I'm with you

what's behind the disguise?
I'm still looking for mine
for once I want it just to be
(even though I keep denying and denying)
Track Name: Nowhere
we've been cast adrift along the tide
shallow breaths and memories alive
voices fading, further away
tonight will be the night, I will be erased
I'll go nowhere with you
it's too dark to be true

I've been waiting for you to show me an ending
I've already seen how our lives have reached a new disorder
the complications are getting older
this kind of place is too familiar to me
it lost the power to keep my troubles at ease
I wanna know if here is where all the ends meet
every night I recite a spell to bring you back to life

you know it's too late
i need a cure for my existence
it's times like this I'd second guess it
but i'll go nowhere with you

I need to know if this is where we're meant to be forever
it's nowhere with you
(do you believe in omens?)

I've been waiting for you to tell me we're nothing
is this how it should be?
you call to ask why I still bother
the conversation is getting older
this kind of look is too familiar to be
it lost the power to keep my troubles at ease
I wanna know if you've been thinking of me
every night I recite a spell to bring you back to life

you know it's too late
i need a cure to feel the distance
it's times like this I'd second guess it
but i'll go nowhere with you

I've been ready to leave this all behind
I don't know how to deal with my emotions yet
but they're nowhere with you

(do you believe in omens?)
Track Name: Deep End
I get closer to the deep end wondering
could you ever tell a void from a body?
a body that is unbecoming
and I can lose it when I know
I want it, I want it so bad I can't speak
I want you, I want you so bad to drown me

I get closer to the deep..
try not to follow me
it's a force that wants to take me under
to a conscious surrender
I want it, I want it so bad to be clear
I want you, I want you so bad to drown here

here i'm just hanging in the deep end

I get closer to the deep end wondering
what's become of me?
a body that is unbecoming
and I can lose it when I know
