about

‘The Recover EP’ was finished in October 2008 and worked on intermittently from February of that year. It's made up of covers and remixes of songs I have unreserved love of and so decided to ruin. I veer far away for the source material to create something that I believe is pretty interesting.

Track Name: Alala
Ah la la, Ah la la
Gimme three wishes
I wanna be that
dirtyfinger and his six bitches

Ah la la, Ah la la
Gimme more too
I wanna be in that crazy band or meuku

Ah la la, Ah la la
Would you be kind
Gimme one little more
And I’ll be superfine

Ah la la, Ah la la
You're so cool
Can I be your friend?
I'll drive till the end

Cuz you know but you don't wanna
Cuz you want but you can't have it
Cuz you know but you don't wanna
Cuz you want but you can't have it

Ah la la, Ah la la
I'm so worried
I bought that posh clothing
But it still looks ugly

Ah la la, Ah la la
Am I stupid?
I'm doing the talking
But I don't get nothing

Ah la la, Ah la la
Give me a visa
Quando é bom parar
Defazer a íntima

Ah la la, Ah la la
You're so cool
Can I be your friend?
I'll drive you till the end

Cuz you know but you don't wanna
Ah la la, Ah la la
Cuz you want but you can't have it
Ah la la, Ah la la
Cuz you know but you don't wanna
Ah la la, Ah la la
Cuz you want but you can't have it

I'm doing the talking
But I don't get nothing
Ah la la, Ah la la
Track Name: There's Always Something There to Remind Me
Always something there to remind me
Always something there to remind me

I walk along those city streets you used to walk along with me
And every step I take recalls how much in love we used to be

Oh how can I forget you
When there is always something there to remind me?
Always something there to remind me
Always something there to remind me
Always something there

I was born to love you
And I will never be free
You'll always be a part of me
Whoa

If you should find you miss the sweet and tender love we used to share
Just go back to the places where we used to go
And I'll be there

How can I
How can I
How can I forget you
Whoa-oh-ooo-ohhh

When there is always something there to remind me
Always something there to remind me
I was born to love you
And I will never be free
You'll always be a part of me
Track Name: Crucify (Starring Katie Hayes)
I have a cat named Easter, he says will you ever learn
You’re just an empty cage girl if you kill the bird
I got a kick for a dog, who’s begging for love
I gotta have my suffering, have my cross

I’ve been looking for a savior in these dirty streets
Looking for a savior beneath these dirty sheets
I’ve been raising up my hands, drive another nail in
Just what God needs, one more victim

Why do we
Why do we crucify
Why do we crucify ourselves
My heart is sick of being in chains

Every finger in the room is pointing at me
I wanna spit in their faces then I get afraid of what that could bring
I got a bowling ball in my stomach, I got a desert in my mouth
Figures that my courage would choose to sell out now

I’ve been looking for a savior in these dirty streets
Looking for a savior beneath these dirty sheets
I’ve been raising up my hands, drive another nail in
Just what God needs, one more victim

Why do we crucify ourselves
Everyday I crucify myself
Nothing I do is good enough for you
Crucify myself
Everyday I crucify myself
My heart is sick of being
I said my heart is sick of being in chains

Please be
Save me
I cry

Looking for a savior in these dirty streets
Looking for a savior beneath these dirty sheets
I’ve been raising up my hands, drive another nail in
Just what God needs
Where are those angels when you need them
