Paris When It Sizzles! Solar Warrior Solar Warrior (demo1)
79 plays

mixxan:

a new song sketch for today:

The fainting into skies
From a high diving board
The express train overnight
To Detroit’s damp bars
I want a song to play
A miserable line or two
Some chords and some mistakes
To harmonize with you
My classroom days are flutters
Propagating in the dark
Where I think about the others
And how I let them rot

Following my passions through
Be it in heaven or in hell
Wherever mystery will fume
And the melody shall swell
I can’t be pretentious
If I am giving it my all
Why mark the self so serious?
Failure’s the best part of the fall

Our life on these streets seems silent in comparison to leaves
And I can make a bit of noise but it’s nothing under nature’s echoing
So let my fingers tumble in convulsions
Let my spinning head drape
I am petrified in motion
To find the stillness in my grace
When the summer’s resonance is playing
All those rich, deep meditations
And I’m freed for night, slick like jazz improvised
I am the solar warrior
Cosmic spirit, co-explorer

Don’t you worry about your lineage
You will be forgiven
Don’t you dare put up a fight
That’s not nonviolently driven

December 01st 2013

the new Paris When It Sizzles! album is done! it will be online & downloadable on December 3rd! (physical CDs will also be available for purchase!) Here is the lead single off the record…High Mirrors.

Downtown streets bounced the echo
Of all place and all time 
Revolt’s static glow:
Television multiplied
Dressing up to drink highballs
Man glosses mind
‘There’s nothing wrong with this catcall,
Pretty ladies just like the vibe’
Oh what a suburban lifestyle!
Bursting with floral dresses
Lawyers and doctors reconcile
The system that represses

She was over thirty
Put her hair up in a bun
Knew her way around the office
Controlled the warmth of a gun

With hair trimmed above their ears
Matched in style and in grace
Men will conform and fall into fear
The fun gets locked in the chase
There’s no selling emotions
When they are tangled up in legs
Death and life mirror devotion
To some higher realm of praise

Death and life mirror devotion
To some higher realm of praise!

Paris When It Sizzles! wut I will possess the fouls you claim
32 plays

mixxan:

new punk lol demo i made tonight:

I’ve got limited cash
Tips or wage it’s all a flash
Reading Sylvia Plath
Man, do I got it bad
I don’t want what they prescribe
I just wanna sleep at night
Let music get me high
Stuffing words inside my mind
Timid verbs creep on me
Everybody must be lonely
Selling lies to skim the scene
Fashion is just make believe
Wearing leather late at night
My jacket’s rad, my jeans are tight
I can loosen up my shades
Knife’s all right, I want the blade

Ain’t no man that’s gonna put one past me
Pussy!

I’m an atom time decayed
Just so criminally gay
Push me around, call me dyke
Don’t give a shit, I like what I like
I will possess the fouls you claim
Wear them like a badge of shame
Then I will spit on your politics
Because, really, I don’t give a shit
Blood is blood and it stains red
Money is the power that wants you dead
I’ve barely got the pocket change
To feel the pull of the deranged
Yet I’m still acting strange

To be the best you gotta feel the worst
Believe me boys I’ve been cursed
A plague to your society
I ain’t gonna let it be
So whitey-white and straight lines
Fuck that shit, it’s so designed
To repress and possess and diminish
I’m not finished
