about

Half Waif Brooklyn, New York

"Half Waif brims over with sounds: underwater echoes of Celtic melodies; mossy, blinking electronic soundscapes; the ultra- sad chord changes of 19th-century art music; and eternal, unending bhajans. A finely crafted glass menagerie of song..."
-Ben Seretan

Track Name: Desperado
Nobody knows whatever happened.
Was it a ghost?
Was it an accident?

Nobody knows where he was going.
To a faraway coast
Where it's already snowing?
Track Name: Nest
Gathering the papers:
Gonna make you a nest.
For you, my love,
Only the very best.

Quiet the machines:
I'm gonna give you a rest.
For you, my love,
Only the very best.

On the boat, you are rocking,
I am watching far away.
Close my eyes; when they open,
You have fallen in the waves.
Grab your wrist, feel the life drain
Right out of your veins.
Never mind, I'll keep pulling
'Til I know that you're safe.

Gathering the ashes,
Gonna take whatever's left.
I only know how to love you the best.

On the day that you weaken,
All your energy will fade.
Close your eyes; when they open,
I will offer you a stage.
Don't you cry, I'll keep watching
'Til I know that you're safe.
Track Name: Turn Me Around
Turn me around again...

We separate.
I'm tired of my own breath.
I'm tired of the sound that I make when
I respirate.

Wrestlin with the tigers within me
And don't know which one I will feed when
We separate.

And then you turn me around again.
You turn me around again.

Come down, turn me around.
I don't even know what I'm here for.

Listenin - I'm tired of my own breath.
I'm tired of the sound that I make when
We separate.

And then you turn me around again.
You turn me around again.
Track Name: Probable Depths
Exquisite probable depths.
Here I reside on the lip of the outer edge,
Hugging myself to my chest,
Every breath meaning less than the last.

A toe in the folds of a wheel.
I'll make a design to appeal to your wounded mind.
Heaven knows how it'll feel
When the wheel unwinds.

It's time to dive.

Don't believe the golden light
That appears in your eyes.
(These canyons, these chasms have their lies.)
Don't believe the golden light that appears.
(I believed.)
I wish I hadn't.
Track Name: Overthrown
So the self I've known is overthrown.
You should know not to place
Too much blame - our fade is slow.

I kiss your face and I know
just what that shows.
But the lie is my bread
and I bet nobody knows.

I tore the lily from its branches.
You've given me too many chances.
Quiet now, I'm so quiet...
Quiet now, I'll be quiet...

But the lamp stutters off:
When it comes back, then I'll be caught.
But the lie is my bread
And I bet I'll never have enough.

I tore the lily from its branches.
You've given me too many chances.
Quiet now, I'm so quiet...
Quiet now, I'll be quiet...
Track Name: Stutter Stop
Stutter stutter stop
I trip over my legs
I feel a sudden shock.
Stutter stutter stop
I trip over my legs
I feel it in my heart.
Neon surging through me,
It riddles me with holes.

Stutter stutter stop
I trip over my legs
I cannot keep up.
Stutter stutter stop,
The falling of the land
I feel a sudden shock.
Neon surging through me,
It riddles me with holes.

Stutter stutter stop
The running of the herd
They're running me down.
Stutter stutter stop
I trip over my legs
I fear I'll never learn.
Neon surging through me,
It shatters all my nerves.

Bound to the marrow of how it feels--
Anatomy of doubt.
Born in the shadow of who I'll be.
Can you get me out (of body)?
Track Name: Know Your Body
All around me:
I know your body.
Sink with me
'Cause I know your body.
Forgive me
'Cause I know your body.
Track Name: Tactilian
What's on my mind in the evening?
Tangerines in their skins,
Taking their time to be eaten.
So cold, so cold.
Smoke in my lantern.
What's on my mind when the light's out?
I don't think you wanna know.

Think I'm a bit sick of holding on.

A terrible time to be thinking.
Think I'd rather undress,
Feel the flesh in my fingers.
Let it go, let it go, let it pass.
Smoke in my lantern.
What's on my mind when the light's out?
I don't think you wanna know.

Think I'm a bit sick of holding on.

Then I open the door
And I know
I'm not gonna be back for a while.
