lyrics

Hide your kingdom in the closet,
It will be our secret.
And when you’re sleeping, I will visit,
To see that you are living in it.

Whatever you’re hiding, I will find it.
And then we'll find ourselves alone
In the dust, on an island...

Kevin: your ribbon within me,
The gift you’ve been giving lies.
Tell me: the shape of your vision,
Is it something you can clarify?

I trust not every intuition,
My mind shifts like a prism.
I fall asleep before the television,
The city that we live in is a prison.

Whatever you’re hiding, I will find it.
And then we'll find ourselves alone
In the dust, on an island...

Kevin: your ribbon within me,
The gift you’ve been giving lies.
Tell me: the shape of your vision,
Is it something you can clarify?

I’ve gone down, I’ve gone down,
I’ve gone down an idle road.

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
