about

Batty Blue Provo, Utah

A New Wave, Fuck-Folk band stationed in Provo Utah.
The clean guitar plucking and accordion trills are lovely
melodic backings to lyrics that discuss mythopoetry,
metatrash and the divorce of your parents.

Track Name: Cygnus
I want to binge and purge, chain smoke the human world
I want to dance alone, watch you drop the microphone
this is for me, because I am a selfish being
so put your hands up high like throwing diamonds to the sky
I want your gilded shell to be cracked by the crush of a wave
I want your spirit dancing around me like a haze

I want a safe upheaval like dancing up to Cygnus
don’t want to hear you talk about your sickness

This is not for you, for your attention affection or praise
this is for me, because I’ve singing about you for days
so give me your heart I think it belongs to me
I want you to see things the way that I see

I want a safe upheaval like dancing up to Cygnus
don’t want to hear you talk about your sickness
