False Starts 05:12
I licked your lips when you were cold You drank my tears when I would hide How could I deserve a beautiful one When she gave me nothing to lean on My fists were stiff, white knuckled high Being torn between bed post and life I’m gonna give you this like it’s the first time And the last How, oh how I have to stop to ask myself now Why can I not change Make me marathon to the theater in your bones Turn your cheek so effortlessly cold Cut me free with few words Fight with hearts undone Turn your face to this everlasting love A simple day remains a lasting one And if I ever forget it I’ll open up my chest and say Look what you’ve given me And now we’re here Deciding dear With this love be our knife Make me marathon to the theater in your bones Turn you cheek so effortlessly cold Cut me free with few words Fight with hearts undone Turn your face to this sweet Everlasting flare gun I’m coming to your rescue baby Harvest me my love Make me move the moon Gather pedals and weeds Take them all and swoon Give me one more time to coo you To breathe in the air that surrounds you All I want is a chain reaction To spill my brain from all the chaos of attraction To you Make me marathon to the theater in your bones Turn your face to this sweet Everlasting flare gun I’m coming to your rescue baby

about

This record took several years to make, but it's finally here in some form. It's a record about growth and having a better understanding of who I am and how to cope with what life hands us.

I'll be releasing the second half of this record, titled Crystal Lattice Lullabies, at the end of next month.

about

Cardioid Portland, Oregon

The main creative project of Lizzy Ellison (previously of Portland’s Radiation City), Cardioid flits between genres and tones with the sly, dexterous abandon of an artist in full control. Ellison terms it “fantasy metal,” silvery and elusive, resoundingly strong yet invitingly fluid. pre-order Fantasy Metal vinyl!!
