about

"Like the oil painting that graces its cover, Das Gesicht [...] is layered and eerie and packs a remarkable amount of feeling into a small space." // Will "The Cricket": losgrilloscollective.com/rikky-das-gesicht

"It's weird but wonderful and should be a must-listen for fans of Syd Barrett, Comus, Current 93 and those similar quiet dark magical sounds." // Daniel Vincent: eepurl.com/bwbt-P

Track Name: I Love You (A Ballad About Romance In the 21st Century)
I love you
I love you so much
So much
That I don't know
How much I love you
I love you
I love you so much
So much
That I don't know
How much I love you

I love your looks
I love them so much
So much
That I don't know
If I want to be you
Or fuck you
I love
How you make me wait
And then show up
Whenever you feel like it

I love you
I love you so much
So much
That I don't know
How much I love you
I love you
I love you so much
So much
That I don't know
How much I love you
Track Name: One Chord Song
This is a one chord song
For the unfulfilled people
For the lonely eyes

Have you looked at the sky lately
It's blue yes it's blue
When you look at it

And through the window that you look
It's not broken why would you ever break it
There's no point

And on the street we see people walking
If you want to you can go out and talk to these people
Meet some new people

Sometimes
We make jokes in our heads
Sometimes
About stabbing people dead
Yeah yeah

But that would be rude
We don't wanna be rude
No no let's step back
And go back
And lie on the floor all day
Lying on the floor all day
Lying on the floor all day
Track Name: The Face
Your eyes
Purple
All around
Like hollow moon in nightmare

Black eyes
Hollow glare
I wish I had
Less cowerdly tendencies
Then I would help you
So I wish

I want to paint you
I'm a selfish cannibal
I see blood from the back of your hair

I'm sorry for following you
I'm sorry for my silence
My glare
For you I'm just like the others
It's my weakness that makes you think so
I apologize and will soon leave you

Your face
It will follow me now
In my dreams and nightmares
I know any lucid thought
Will be nowhere near
What has happened to you
I apologize and leave you now
Track Name: Going Away Again
I'm going away again
I'm going away again
I know it's terrible
When I'm going away again

I know it
In how the food tastes
And how I'm tired
All the time

And I've been
Outside and inside
So many times
But it's still all the same

And I know
In the way that you help me
And in the way that I hate you
I'm going away again

And your little voice
It trembles me now
But I do not trust
Anyone else

And I'm so sorry
But I know
I shouldn't apologize
All the time
But it's that I do when I'm
Going away again

And perhaps
I'm taking myself
Too seriously
This time I'm gonna try
Not to take myself
So seriously

I'm going away again
I can't believe
I'm actually
Going away again
