You have no point of view,
but your lack of confidence
as you turn on the news
"You're going to lose your job", they said...
You'd want to scream out loud
"...or so it seems!" - the T.V. host misread
Monkey on channel four
jumps, laughs and lies for love of the state

Take off your clothes
I want you to feel naked
just like me

...and what about this dam right here?
You can hold off the troubles,
but they won't just disappear
That's the way we are amused...
we say time is not enough to wonder
while we all know it's a lame excuse

Feel like you're the only one whose sane,
but it tastes just the same when you feel strange
"It's a world of illusions" - I heard
What's been foretold has been done
even if it's not what you were looking for at all

Take off your clothes
I want you to feel alone
just like me

This place burns,
but someday the river
will get around it
as the dam will break.

I Dead Bouquet sono un trio rock che esprime atmosfere mistiche e notturne attraverso lande di eclettica psichedelia suggellata dalla distorsione di una 12 corde acustica e caratterizzate da sonorità folk, celtiche e di confine.
Il disco d’esordio, “As Far As I Know”, è stato registrato e prodotto da Paul Kimble, bassista dei Grant Lee Buffalo, il quale vi ha partecipato anche come session man.
