Dropped Down 03:31
dropped down, got dropped down you dropped yourself down stripped off, peeled pieces peeling off features falling to the ground crossed arms, to protect not serve arms stronger holding on giver what donations you make you’re getting bigger and bigger by the prices you pay to you, look how much sweeter you taste take more take all take those donations you make go be who you need to be now turn around I’m not there, I do not stand bare naked in the freezing cold my coat, it’s hanging over that chair, will you pass it over here giver, what donations you make you’re getting bigger and bigger by the prices you pay to you look how much sweeter you taste take more take all take those donations you make I’m just going to stand here and watch you fall I see that your potential isn't helping at all potentially doesn’t make the cut you’re fired, go set yourself on fire burn down to ashes then let’s go for a walk then I will reteach you how to talk you are like cookies and like cake and wine now you repeat, look you are doing just fine say you’re a queen and no one holds a light now you repeat, look you are doing just fine now you repeat, look you are speaking in time

dragging my snowshoes across the prairies I feel the weight of wet clothes on my snowshoes there’s dead rabbits hanging on my snowshoes and lots of wet clothes got the ski suit on and it’s neon it’s a one piece with a pom pom on the top ski goggles gleaming like your teeth that are beaming I can see them through the storm you’re a pelican with a doormat in your mouth you’re a kitten with a dartboard on your back you are creasing until you leave you’re a devil in a waterbed, your eyeliner is frostbite it’s a tow truck pull, nail scratches plow the road leaving gashes for the wolves to hide their wool they are heaving until they bleed skin that’s red turning a shade of purple the pitch black breathes while packing the parcel down steeping until it leaks you’re a devil in a waterbed, your eyeliner is frostbite

I am a rodeo my gloves are peeling I got them trampling I got them teething we hang from dull rope we hang from rope that breaks counting our pieces, they’re on the rec room floor we choose the roads we hoe, we are the vehicles I drive a stretcher medicine, counting medicine, cough up medicine, out for medicine, how come I don’t need a case they hide the bird feed, they hide the bird that breaks we keep our windows closed, we leave the vacuum on wired my jaw shut just couldn’t help it daggered the metal pin sharpened through the skeleton we choose the roads we hoe, we are the vehicles I drive a stretcher medicine, counting medicine, cough up medicine, out for medicine, how come I don’t need a case a case in case you weren’t counting no i don’t need, a case in case

drop your mask off on the second floor leave your designer at the door we want to know how you take your coffee pull the roof off your convertible car slithering by like some sealed up statues one by one like dominoes he falls over then she follows and I want tickets to the front row they’re so sharp they’re so lighting they’re so sharp feel them dying they’re so sharp feel them tightening they’re so sharp true dancing in the chorus line move those eyes around until they fall like dimes silver glances shifting looks hail down feel the pulse of those five fingers tapping hard on the chalkboard learn your lesson, keep it in what do you think we’re working for they’re so sharp they’re so lighting they’re so sharp feel them dying you’re the drive, you’re the tiger, get in line true, dancing in the chorus line move those eyes around until they fall like dimes silver glances shifting looks hail down

about

eagle and talon Los Angeles, California

LA-based experimental rock duo Eagle and Talon have been confusing people since their formation. Splicing angular guitars and intricate rhythms with casio and scraps of musical theater, Kim and Alice Talon forge a sound that makes you wonder whether you’re being pet by a kitten or mauled by a lynx. ... more
