gentlemanklang Having seen them on the flyer for HRH Goth next year, decided to check them out. My word was I utterly captivated! Great musicianship and Carlas vocals are hypnotic and terrifying (in the best way) all at once. Just shows that despite all the dross we are being fed, there are great Artists out there producing music as good as this. Keep up the great work guys and I can’t wait to see you live! Favorite track: Twisted Issues.

CREEPY LITTLE DOLLS hahaha hahaha come out and play' hehehe come on, come out and play' Plastic faces and beady eyes staring down on me as I lay in bed there on the shelf just as I manage to fall to sleep I am awoken by the sound like patterning feet on the stairs so I decide to get up and follow the strange sound I'm hearing every night that i'm disturbed I see a shadow of a small child what is this? creepy dolls creepy dolls creepy little dolls coming to life possession inside carrying a knife creepy little dolls coming at night possession unfolds in front of your eyes creepy little dolls voodoo magic stabbing pins and needles in your thighs legs and arms hoping that you feel all of this pain flickering eyelids moving lashes up and down I remember the sound when I was just a small little child one two three ready or not here I come hide and seek it's our time to come to life you hide you scream you're afraid of the dark you hide you scream you're afraid of the dark
for all these friendships in this world are they real or are they fake? It seems like people think inside their minds all they do is take I'm not a toy I'm not a toy that you can just throw away I will not fall' I will not fall' stop trying to trip me up and take I will not stand for your demand It will not be my fate Twisted your way out you twisted all your lies so they believe you're right Twisted your way out you twisted all your lies so they believe you're right Twisted twisted I'm no longer locked inside my shell that's how you made me feel for all those people there ignoring me open your goddamn eyes
BLACK SPIDERS your eyes look like black spiders black as the dark night they steer you in slowly drawing you inside they’re crawling all around you locking you in tight rolling you up and feeding whenever they decide aaah black spiders aaah black spiders you're my next victim show no one show show no one I can fly in the sky hide me well hide hide me well It's our time to shine I'll tell you an old story that goes back in time a poor girl loved an evil soul and he gave her everything he turned her into what he was she became his queen and covered her in diamonds and fifty golden rings you're my next victim aaah black spiders aaah black spiders
you're my next victim
I see a hole inside of your soul 
that's how he likes it 
take what you want with your legs 
open wide that's how we see it 
the stench of your mouth before you 
even speak makes us believe it 
with that dirty whore mouth 
dirty whore mouth 
I can't take much more of this 
your dirty whore mouth
 I decide I’m not putting up with this 
your dirty whore mouth 
 Nothing changes I can't stand the sight of you 
 Stop your pretending playing the victim it’s you! 
don't you touch me with that dirty whore mouth 

 there's no sacrifice to save what you have you just forget it
 You're down on your knees your taking disease - why do you do it? 
with that dirty whore mouth repeat pre-chorus & chorus
Time is of the essence you ride by my side forever understanding what’s deep down inside we ride along the distance with open hearts mind we fly behind the anchors with shields at our sides protecting are existence we stand here with pride Shield of protection your arrows won't touch my skin protection and I won't let you in protection your arrows won't touch my skin Ive fallen over in to the sea can you swim over and please save me it feels like i'm drowning I can hardly breath I see you faintly in front of me couldn’t be better with you by my side this time feels like i'm in a dream you keep pulling me pulling me towards the crowd
Work Sucks 03:00
Ive got stones inside of my shoes they're digging in ive got a bruise running down the street there's a fool got people to meet its not cool get out my way no time to play I just can't say i'm sorry work work I don't wanna I've got a bone to pick with you You act like you don't have a clue your down on your knees begging me please don't shout at me it hurts my ears get out my way no time to play I just can't say i'm sorry aaaaaah I don't want to go back to work cuz it sucks you sometimes drive me round the bend the constant moaning never ends just leave alone to be on my own why are you still here? causing me fear get out my way no time to play I just can't say i'm sorry Its no wonder everybody leaves in the end Its no wonder I have to pretend that I like it here that I like it here I don't want to go back to work cuz it sucks
Underworld 03:54
Let me taste you let me feel you coming from the dark side of my soul to you Let me know you let me show you come down after mindnight where i'll dance for you where the nightmares begin where the angels don't sing in the underworld repeat 1st verse & chorus The whole room shakes as you’re leaving the afterworld is not leaving Don't talk to me as you’re feeding I'm in control of the evil inside-side of the evil inside-side... chorus
Zombie Girl 03:49
I can't breathe my lungs are too tight I can't leave I'm breathless, can't fight I'm ripping open the seals to get air I'm climbing up though the mud as I stare you’re a real undead zombie girl craving the living as you grow hungrier craving the flesh craving the blood I can't feel my heart beat anymore I can't feel the heat though the floor I'm in a daydream of the world I once knew all I keep thinking is to bite you repeat chorus
Screaming over the radio someone please put on my show My ears are bleeding I have to go I'm still listening but there you go Feeding maggots on your skin they wear you out 
and make you thin The bigger the better The harder we play The louder your screaming The more i will stay! The bigger the better 
I'm on my own I got no place to go everyone's screaming through the radio I'm not schizophrenic but there's voices in my head they sometimes tell me that I wish I was dead I feel peculiar my heart beats slow I'm coming down before I start the show repeat chorus
