\\ excerpt //

BEDROOM WITCH
What a vile sickness spreads in this bedroom. The torture of the unknown. It has yet to know of my existence and I have yet to know of its own as well. Do either of our realms exist? Maybe neither. Theirs can't possibly be as monotonous as mine. This tragedy I've been cursed in! My cat's absence must be the cause of these intrusive thoughts...

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: Rearrange The Room
I will show no sympathy
because I can't stand the monotony
throw my clothes around just to calm me down
you should know by now to stay away from me

let no light shine in here again
you don't seem to understand
now we wait here for the dead
I'm lying next to them
so if you feel lost rearrange the room
listen to what I'm saying to you

I don't need you to waste my time
I will leave you dissatisfied
tell me something new before I'm through with you
the rest should all come as no surprise

(cover the blank space, can't stay in one place
repeat the next day, cause we need a change)

let no light shine in here again
you don't seem to understand
now we wait here for the dead
I'm lying next to them
so if you feel lost rearrange the room
listen to what I'm saying to you
Track Name: Hidden Shrine
a figureless form behind the abyss idolized in light
eternal devotion cast the eclipse, worshipped in disguise
(meaning forged in pantomime, sacred to the blind)
now it's been exposed, the secret of my hidden shrine
dedicated to you…

into the past of a tragic collapse
the door traps glory in the eyes of the mask carved into the past
of a tragic collapse, the door traps glory

a figureless form behind the abyss
idolized in light
eternal devotion cast the eclipse
destroyed my hidden shrine
Track Name: Moth Whispers
moth whispers coming from the lights
telling me what they saw outside
moth whispers trailing through the dark
don't forget not to stray too far
I feel I'm hollow inside

haven't you wondered what's to come of our fate?
time starts rewinding when they tell me to wait
I'm losing patience so I think you should know
they asked for you to go
they know about you and I trust what they've heard
I'll keep my distance cause I'm drawn to their word

moth whispers coming from the lights
telling me what they saw outside
moth whispers trailing through the dark
now I know not to stray too far
brittle wings they're idling
catching dust in empty rooms

this coat of arms I wore is fading away
I'm feeling warmer though I'm caught in your shade
I never thought that I would fear it again
now they're after you
they talk about you and I know what I've heard
I'll keep my distance cause I'm drawn to their word

there's a hole in the sky, let's talk about it tonight
before you're gone

moth whispers coming from the lights
telling me what they saw outside
moth whispers trailing through the dark
now I know not to stray too far
Track Name: Past Life
see through everything that passes me by
though it's foggy tonight
I have the answers for the lonely hours
that keep me inside

don't tell me I was not myself
when I say that I don't remember
I have a strange side to consider
though it's not what it seems..
do you know what it means?

don't act like you know me better than I do
as if you knew me in a past life
Track Name: Still Awake
I'm still awake
I don't wanna lay all these thoughts to rest
I'm still awake
now it's time to get dressed in red
and repeat myself once again
time has stopped behind their eyelids
I'll go on to mock the silence

I want to be alone
making faces at the shadows
I know of the unknown
watching cars pass through my window

I'm still awake
cause this is when I feel the best
I'm still awake
now it's time to get out of bed
and talk to myself again
save your breath you can't convince me
shut the door cause I'm not listening

I want to be alone
making faces at the shadows
I know of the unknown
watching cars pass through my window

I'M STILL AWAKE
Track Name: Cadaver Doktor
thoughts:
drink the vile I hold before you
live forever if you want to
shattered crucible, now I'm miserable
will this be my last test?

voice:
I've got the perfect plan to make cadavers want to dance
follow me into my lab to see the dead talk with their hands

thoughts:
sew the limbs all together
when it's complete, we'll be lovers
and hide away in my tower
the darkest of days to uncover

I decide what lives or dies
if it breathes and if it cries
inconceivable, something terrible
it's not all in my head

voice:
i won't go forgotten for what i've created
i won't go forgotten, what have i created?

DON'T CALL ME DERANGED
JUST LET ME EXPLAIN
Track Name: Panic Mode
in the silos, I move
through the silence now, leave room
there's a certain role you can't fill
though you wanna stay, I walk away from you

all the same, you're all the same
boy you know that it's too late
all the same, you're all the same
call me vain to isolate
this is not the way I came from
crowded by the thought

we are in panic mode
and there's nowhere to go
we are in panic mode
now I'm losing control

don't you know that it's my body, that it's my body
it's my body, though it still haunts me
that it's my body, do you still want me?
it's my body, do you still want me?

see it's swallowed me whole, it's inside me now
spilling from the future's eyes

all the same, you're all the same
boy you know I hate to wait
all the same, you're all the same
call me vain to isolate
this is not the way I came from
crowded by the thought

we are in panic mode
and there's nowhere to go
we are in panic mode
and we're afraid that it shows
Track Name: Fast Forward Or Push Rewind
fast forward or push rewind

you can leave it alone in a long lost time
what's left in the fire gives way for new desires
oh, solemnly still (go on)
and take what you must when you
fast forward or push rewind

we see our own paths greet a hostile embrace
our legs stuck in motion's densities
I sacrificed a glance to reach a present gaze
of veiled uncertainties

the reel is turning faster, are we still going backwards?

it's a fallacy, self serving prophecy
so imprecise..
it's done (so long)
so long
fast forward or push rewind

who did we leave behind?
who did we leave belongings for?
we have arrived..

our shadows move further as they sink in our face
with memories of senseless offerings
we're never quite so sure what was spoken in the tape
the words are still a blur

it's a fallacy, self serving prophecy
so imprecise..
it's done (so long)
so long
solemnly still (go on)
and take what you must when you
fast forward or push rewind
Track Name: Mummy Masks
carnal blood dripping through a black hole
in the hourglass we wash our hands
staring at the candles burning in a glass bowl
feeling so good in our mummy masks

riddles scribed in my sarcophagus
that I know I will never understand
cobwebs form in my esophagus
looking so good in our mummy masks

looking so good, feeling so good
looking so good in our mummy masks

the sound of footsteps above our heads
reminds me of a heart beat's command
but it doesn't matter if we're not dead
we still look good in our mummy masks

looking so good, feeling so good
looking so good in our mummy masks

OH SHIT
i just cracked my mummy mask
Track Name: Final Disappearing Act
our final disappearing act will lead us to the womb
and no one will be able to decipher what we knew
until recreation

if I had a heart to substitute the aching one in you..
these days have taken their toll
while my nights were taken from me
still my eyes are closed in the ashes of those
who faked it better before
and they can't tell the difference

our final disappearing act will lead us to the womb
and no one will be able to decipher what we knew
until recreation

purge the beast, no it's not likely
under the sheets, would you come with me?
if they can't find me, no they won't find me

they wanted all control
when out of sight we tore the strings
in the maze we swore not to talk anymore
of our long lost emptiness
but it's never a promise..

our final disappearing act will lead us to the womb
and no one will be able to decipher what we knew
before we were eaten
