about

This album is an interlude between deepblackhole and my next album, Ootheca, of some songs I put together that don't really have a concept behind them other than their pop-music-with-sad-lyrics thing that's going on

credits

released October 23, 2014

"The Headless EP" was written, produced, recorded and mixed by Nadia Pacey © 2014.

Thank you to my friends Peter and James, who helped me out with deciding the art and giving various critiques and support. Thanks to Elan for being down to do girly shit with me, and also thank you Pierce, for sitting through the last couple of months of writing and production, and for being the definition of a dope boyfriend.

Track Name: The Best Thing I Ever Had
it smells so bad
it's me, I knew it
it's the sweat that
I let off, you threw me for a loop,
and now I've changed
when I'm walking I feel strange

what did you say
please repeat it
it's the cotton
soaking the filth when I eat it
but it's fine, and now I've changed
even though my body is a cage

and it's better when you're gone, I'll admit it
I never move, muscles can't permit it
I must've been out when you maimed me
it's so like you to spit it out and shame me
oh, it doesn't matter
you're the best thing that I ever had

my intestines're
getting sabotaged
and rippling in
a tight barrage
right now, and now I've changed
losing hair I feel the mange

and it's better when you're here, you should stay
what good do you do if you're sad when you're away
be mine in secret if you can't bare to show
that I'm yours in the deepest part of my soul
oh, it doesn't matter
you're the best thing that I ever had
Track Name: Gaslight!
"you and me
were pretty as can be
but I've seen the light
and now I've gotta be free"
that's what he said to me
like he wasn't my whole life

call me on the phone
in the dark of the morn
where he he had a thought
and ask to come back to me
are the gaslights real
or are they not

hello sweet boy I'm so glad you've come
who am I without you you know
sweet boy no one

now when you find a man
and the two of you understand
each other real well
there's something to be said
for keeping your head
even when you don't agree

but if there's a truth
then it's this one alone
you can't always be right,
but you can't always be wrong
walking on eggshells so long,
you don't know what carpet feels like

hello sweet boy
I'm so glad you've come
who am I without you
you know sweet boy no one

and if (s)he gaslights
you got to run
and if (s)he gaslights
you got to run
yeah if (s)he gaslights
and if (s)he gaslights
you got to run
and if (s)he gaslights
you got to run
yeah if (s)he gaslights
and if (s)he gaslights
you got to run
and if (s)he gaslights
you got to run
yeah if (s)he gaslights
maybe you do too
maybe you can work it out
and say
hello sweet boy
I'm so glad you've come
who am I without you
you know sweet boy no one
Track Name: Heaven
oh-oh oh-oh
oo-oo oo-oo
oh-oh oh-oh
oo-oo oo-oo

I love to watch you through the window
glass glass glass
Looking at the pictures of your body
cast cast cast
your heart is a bird
your heart is a bird
your heart is a bird
and it shows its cage oh

lower than what I've seen
I've never been taught,
I just know what I know
so if you can see me
there's too much of what I got,
wish I had none to show
heaven is frailty

your self-control makes me feel unsound
sound, sound, sound
and if your hair falls out, where do you put it
down down down
my skeleton's an inmate,
my skeleton's an inmate,
my skeleton's an inmate,
trying to get out
your heart is a bird
your heart is a bird
your heart is a bird
and it shows its cage oh

don't matter what they tell me
I've never been bought, I just know what I know
from one hundred to ninety
I know I'd feel caught between a rock and a glass dome
heaven is frailty

oh-oh oh-oh
oo-oo oo-oo
oh-oh oh-oh
oo-oo oo-oo
Track Name: Blur
feeling all right
it'll go straight to my head
feeling all right
it'll go straight to my head
straight to my head
straight to my head
feeling all right

i get
so serious
you try
your very best
to get through
the bulk of me
I'm just
a pile of weeds

I'm out of shape
look at me now
I'm out of shape
look at me now
I'm out of shape
look at me now
look at me now

i can't
ignore the past
it's not
your fault it lasts
it's been imprinted on me
it's on the walls of my eyelids when I sleep

I'm out of shape
look at me now
I'm out of shape
look at me now
I'm out of shape
look at me now
look at me now

for sure
I'm insecure
but you make
that all a blur
you do something real pure
I wake up and I feel the cure

feeling all right
it'll go straight to my head
feeling all right
it'll go straight to my head
straight to my head
straight to my head
straight to my
straight to my
straight to my
straight to my
head, head, head
Track Name: Headless
When I put my feet down
And I get to crawling
I can't feel my head or my pulse
I guess I'm falling
I guess I'm headless
I guess I'm all alone
There is no blood inside
I'm empty to the bone

When I put my hands up
And I get to flying
I can't feel my head or my pulse
I guess I'm dying
I guess I'm headless
I guess I'm all washed out
There is no blood inside
It all escaped my mouth

When you're close to me you can see that I'm a supermassive black hole
When you're close to me you can see that I'm a dried-out hollow white skull

(repeat all)
