about

Miosis, the constriction of the pupil struck by the light.
It's that moment "when light does not cause us to smile". When you're suddenly confronted with the principle of reality. What will you lose?What will you gain?What is your character?

This EP is a cinematographic piece where seductive bass lines meet with edgy trip-hop/rock beats along with a sensual lyrical rocky voice.Each track bears its fair amount of darkness and light.

John Davis, mastering engineer for Led Zeppelin, FKA twigs, Lana del rey and Tricky, to name a few, said about the title track that it's so good it makes him want to "eat his own hand »…:)

Track Name: Miosis
MIOSIS
What happens when the plane has to land
and this damn voice awakens us
when the aircraft fills up with tension and precipitation
when we hear "all passengers down"
Can we make it right
can we make it right
What happens when miosis breaks the spell
When light does not cause us to smile
moves and words induce several possible interpretations
will this feel like you know me not
Can we make it right
Can we keep it high
just simple and bright
I'm beggin'
Can this be
Can this be
Can this be…it
Cause i'm exhausted
You led me to this peaceful place again
where we just give the past a rest
fresh air to corner the doubts and anticipations
bold or blind i trusted your hand
can we make it right
Can we keep it high
just simple and bright
Can this be
Can this be
Can this be…it
Cause i'm exhausted
I'm beggin i'm beggin…..
Track Name: Where The Story Started
WHERE THE STORY STARTED
Lying here feeling like
paradise vanished during my sleep
Hell is when i open my eyes
in this empty bed pain waits safe and still
Butterflies sold theirs wings
he burnt them now they're all gone with the wind
steel and fire just feel the same
i hold my womb feels like they disappeared

i don't wanna see my soul fly away
like sweet memories did
and what you stole you killed
cause i can't get back
to where the story started
Even in my dreams...

My faith like a frail bird
you beheaded then slowly dismembered
i wish i never learned that word
would prevent the blade
from digging deeper
i don't wanna see my soul fly away
like sweet memories did
and what you stole you killed
cause i can't get back
to where the story started

Sometimes i'd feel like crying to this song
smiling to this picture
but sweet memories are one of the million things
you wouldn't offer
that's what you did to me
that's how bad you hurt me
that's how hard you raped me

i don't wanna be an empty space
wherever that's what i'll be
cause when you stole you killed
and i can't get back to where the story started
even in my dreams
Track Name: Mind Censor
MIND CENSOR
I feel a rush soon rejected
i feel a blush but soon it's tainted
I feel a pride but soon i'm ashamed
I grow a smile
he aims at the face
I see the light
Shadows break in
I cease the fight
they start wrestling
And on my back
Build up a chain
On which they climb
To jump in my brain

My little censor mind censor
a thousand sharp tools in his hands
target's locked and he's such a good shot
little censor mind objector
would you shut up and let me live

How can i fly
with ball and chains
I'd rather die
than live in jail
unzip my mouth
uncut my hands
i've done my time
and now i'm walking away

My little censor mind censor
a thousand sharp tools in his hands
target's locked and he's such a good shot
little censor mind objector
would you shut up and let me live

oh oh no no they don't know
What's inside my head
They don't know what's inside my head
How can i fly with all these chains
Mind censor
Track Name: To Feel Alive
TO FEEL ALIVE

It started with a small
lie to yourself
A lie without which
You couldn't survive
You burried your soul
Deep down in a cave
And walked in the sun
All perky and brave
For you and around you
like dead souls they fell
but i knew the truth
and i misbehaved

Who wouldn't you break
And what wouldn't you fake
Who wouldn't you kill
To feel alive

A lie in the mirror
Each day that's what it takes
To feel alive
To feel alive
Tell yourself you're virtuous
That you mean no harm
Then why did you go
And feed on my faith

Who wouldn't you break
And what wouldn't you fake
Who wouldn't you kill
To feel alive
But you're just a lie

Those victories did they taste that good
Did it quench your thirst like you thought it would
Denial's not that much of a peaceful place
How can you still stand your own face

Who wouldn't you break
And what wouldn't you fake
Who wouldn't you kill
To feel alive
Track Name: Burn Me
BURN ME

Pinch me Pinch me
Stab me stab hard
It don't matter
I don't feel anything at all
Push me push me
right into the pit
Yes i'll keep smiling
if i slip and fall
Burn and pin my cotton stuffings
Dislocated arms

Burn me Burn me

Doubt me dump me
Sue me smash me
Right under your wheel
is where i wish to be
Blame me, curse me
Feel free to disown me
I certainly won't disagree

Burn me Burn me

Feels like i never felt so sad and helpless ever before
I feel my heart, my soul, my whole body craving for more
And my brain is such a mess
It's getting harder to express
My needs, my thoughts and
Everyday i wake up with less
I walk like a zombie through this thing you call life
Feeling frustrated cause it's not how i'm supposed to feel inside
And this pain is so real
But i need to make it stronger
Like a wake up call
Cause time is running
And i know i need a reminder


I've lost interest in life
And i need a reminder
I've lost my appetite
And i need a reminder
An evil reminder
In my holy quest

Whip me behead me
Inoculate me
Punch me
Grab your sword and cut me open
Sew me up again
Thirteen stitches
Black cat, ladders
I'm not superstitious
Burn me Burn me ...
