a curse on my back and sting in my cells. From a whipping dream i rose like cream. black tentacles pulling at my sleeve. parasitic screaming fighting back up stream. hey you, it's me. i'm back on the scene again. hey you, it's me. i'm the king of the cage again. am i electric dead? a dull pulsing. switch me alive. i'm the sage of lies. hey you, it's me. i'm back on the scene again. hey you, it's me. i'm the king of the cage again. down the last fox hole with a holy ghost. time to pull the pin and take it on the chin. a witness to the wave of ghosts again. a witness to the waves crashing. parasitic screaming fighting back up stream. hey you, it's me. i'm back on the scene again. hey you, it's me. i'm the king of the cage again.

let's pave all the sky and let's drain the sea. one taste is such a waste in a world expiring. disorder. disorder will set us free. till time hits the vein. let's break all the ice and let's strip the trees. one life is such a waste if we don't do as we please. disorder. disorder will set us free. till time hits the vein.

absolutely pitch black. midnight always in my head. no secrets. no proof. no nothing up in here for you. cuz i'm absolute. ain't that the truth? i'm absolute. i'm an angel for you. absolutely pitch black. pure and perfect front to back. no deception from the devil. it's true. i'm absolute. ain't that the truth? i'm absolute. i'm an angel for you.

i don't need an occasion and i don't need appreciation. gonna set loose the bats in my attic. gonna smash up all my stairs. unleash the truth. a beast for you. that's what i do. unleash the truth. a beast for you. it ain't some frustration or misled motivation. i've been feasting on the dead and i'm holding by a thread. no distant demarcation. no end to celebration. just whispers in the trees that i've been freed. out of my cage. on the edge. that's what i do. unleash the truth. a beast for you. i'm on the loose again. unleash the truth. a beast for you.

yeah i'm under the spell and knowing it is hell. i could look to the light but i'm already chained to her endless night. yeah, i've already lost the fight. but i'll be alright. yeah, i'll be just fine. i'll be alright. frozen in midnight. is it smoke or steam wrapping around me? cuz i feel the heat and i'm already down here on my knees. yeah, i'm already begging you please. but i'll be alright. yeah, i'll be just fine. i'll be alright. frozen in midnight.

let's run. dark skies. see the rivers rise. earthquake till the demons wake. are we soaking in the moon or a dying sun? is heaven coming down or is hell coming up? here we're under siege. here where we have needs. let's just cut and run. yeah, we can do as we please. dark skies. see the rivers rise. earthquake till the demons wake. through the killing field. we won't yield. holy rollers got some wicked words to wield. get on yer knees. gotta cast it out. you're a little sinner and your full of doubt. hell, you ain't no sinner till the devil comes. let's run.

we're back on worlds where heaven's laced. you don't need to pay to open gates. you don't need to know and you don't embrace what seems untrue from oracles high up on the stage. let's make our love in forbidden places and see just what happens next. let's set the world on spin and see who can out curse the wind. you don't pray enough. you don't pray enough. you don't pay enough. you don't pray to the lord high up on the stage. all the living dead kneel and pray to walk again. do you believe it now? do you see through clouds? is your world the same since you've crossed the plane? you don't pray enough. you don't pay enough. you don't pray.

it comes soaring on the wind to you. rains down in hails of blue. beyond the golden laws to down below the boards. dark. cold. unkind. a soul with sharks in mind. rage and spite. hate inside them all. name this frozen life. bring this form into the light. come the whispering death. name this frozen life. bring this form into the light. come the whispering death.

I must now explain where you can tap the vein. a golden pain. a weathered name. bled from stone and iron reign. hysterical. i need a name. incredible. i need a name. unstoppable. i need a name. straight through the empty stare. two sips. i'm almost there. a killer in from the cold. a waste of easy pray. a waste really all the same. a king in kill position. bled from stone and iron reign. hysterical. i need a name. incredible. i need a name. unstoppable. i need a name. dedication gonna save my soul. dedication gonna save my soul.

black as a body bag. same as my flag. boots to my very being. gone with the whirlwind. pearls for the casting. a void for screaming. dancin'. dancin'. dancing with the dead. soul stealing. dancin'. dancin'. dancing with the dead. yeah, i give my reflection to the mirrors that you smash. and i will not recall the sting of your lash. i got spurs on my brain to keep me racing on for days. i got cities with my name we can set ablaze. oh no. i keep dancing with the dead. oh no. no. no. i keep dancing with the dead. oh no. i'm getting paid to loose my head. dancin'. dancin'. dancing with the dead.

about

Taking the beating heart of 60’s garage rock, the fuzzy dancing limbs of psychedelic Brit pop, and the sardonic lyrical strike of post-punk David Kane and John Toohill's NIGHT SLAVES have given life to another evolution in their experimental electronic world. Now featuring Lucy Bell, Ryan McMullen, and Kelly Mordaunt, this current five piece version finds a splash of color in the darkness using venomous hooks and eerily familiar vibes.
