about

"Overflow" is Harlequin Jones' most recent recording, released October 31st 2012. Recorded in a rush of 4 nonstop days, "Overflow" captures a moment of time for Harlequin Jones. The EP cycles through fast paced piano punk like "Pass The Time," onto an eerie ballad such as "Overflow."

Track Name: Lost Cause
LOST CAUSE
Give up on that girl
With her knees where her eyes should be
Surely that bathroom floor’s not that inviting
That mouse girl mess with her legs to her chest
leaving big black stains on the lace of her dress
leaving big black stains down the side of her face
She’s a waste of sperm and eggs

She’s a lost cause
She’s a lost cause
She’s a lost cause
She’s a lost cause…

She’s submissive, dominate her
She’s a tool, take your hate out on her
It’s all she deserves
There’s no love songs here
Just sex and empty bottles

Livin off:
Caffeine and nicotine
Ephedrine, adrenaline
taurine, amphetamines
trying to make your heart beat
Xanax and laxatives
Hot wax and Vicodin
Cocaine and razor blades
endorphins seeping through your veins
Menthol and alcohol
Ginger ale and Aderaal
cheap thrills and Chestfield
tryin to kill off how it feels
Pins pills, exacto knives
Dramamine and Lucky Strikes
blackouts, strange beds, dime bags
Underfed

She’s lost her head
Underfed
She’s lost her head
She’s a lost cause
She’s a lost cause
She’s a lost cause
It’s a lost cause to care
Track Name: Pass The Time
PASS THE TIME

I drink just to pass the time
I smoke just to pass the time
Time i showed up for life
But im never satisfied

CHORUS
woah.....

VERSE
Take a hit to pass the time
Talk some shit to pass the time
Is it that bad deep inside
Just laugh and pass the pipe

CHORUS
woah....

BRIDGE

VERSE
I drink just to pass the time
I smoke just to pass the time
Time i showed up for life
But im never satisfied
Track Name: Home To Call Home
HOME TO CALL HOME

It’s time for a change
before we waste away
You’re my standby
I’m your safe place
So we walk together
to somewhere where its better
Holding on, now more than ever


Devote all that i know
To grow and move on
Devote all that i know
All we need is a home to call home


Can i keep you
Conceal you
I could never leave you
You're that refuge
I return to
So we walk together
to somewhere where its better
holding on, now more than ever

Devote all that i know
To grow and move on
Devote all that i know
All we need is a home to call home


It takes respect to get respect
and I take whatever I can get
The man said you need some confidence


Devote all that i know
To grow and move on
Devote all that i know
All we need is a home to call home
All we needs a home to call home
All we needs a home
To call home
Track Name: Gotta Stop
GOTTA STOP

Im a trash can casket
a toxic waste basket
Pile debris into me
Never seem to be too late
to give a lush liver a break
I heard that some succeed

This will be the last time
except until the next
Just like it was last night
Can’t pretend it’s not a mess



It cuts into the core
and twists the blade in more
Thought that I’d like it hot
It’s gotta stop, gotta stop
I struggle white knuckle
while my glass world crumbles
Though that I’d like it hot
I’ts gotta stop, gotta stop



If only we could stay sedated -- obliterated
Eyes closed, swept out to sea
The light in you has faded
You can tame it, you can change it
I know cuz you're just like me

This will be the last time
just like the time before
Brains circle the drain
Sucked down till they get more



It cuts into the core
and twists the blade in more
Thought that I’d like it hot
It’s gotta stop, gotta stop
I struggle white knuckle
while my glass world crumbles
Though that I’d like it hot
I’ts gotta stop, gotta stop



If only we could stay sedated -- obliterated
Eyes closed, swept out to sea
The light in you has faded
You can tame it, you can change it
I know cuz you're just like me
The hardest part is the start
You’ve unveiled a fractured heart
I’m tearing down that wall
to find the source of it all



I struggle white knuckle
as my glass world crumbles
Thought that I’d like it hot
It’s gotta stop, gotta stop
I struggle white knuckle
as my glass world crumbles
Thought that I’d like it hot
It’s gotta stop, gotta stop
It cuts into the core
and twists the blade in more
Thought that I’d like it hot
It’s gotta stop, gotta stop
I struggle white knuckle
as my glass world crumbles
Thought that I’d like it hot
It’s gotta stop, gotta stop



If only we could stay sedated…
If only we could stay sedated...
Track Name: Overflow
OVERFLOW

Try to conceive
what it was like to be
Staring back at my body
from the cracks in the ceiling
Revealing my history to a man
who made me turn away
As he measured the weight
of the problem in place
He wore a look i couldn't face
I’d never be the same



Does it show
so much everyone knows?
so much it overflows?
Too much to hold or carry home



I was kept caged
Humiliated on public display
They'd take me out just to announce
That I would never escape
Clawing at straws
Up and down off the walls
Then you fall
and it’s all a black out
Defeat’s a phase, conquer your pain
Crawl six feet straight back out



Does it show
so much everyone knows?
so much it overflows?
Too much to hold or carry home
Does it show
so much everyone knows?
so much it overflows?
Too much to hold or carry home



What if this happens again
What will we do then?
Defeat’s a phase
Conquer your pain
I’d like to see the same
I’d like to see the same



Does it show
so much everyone knows?
so much it overflows?
Too much to hold or carry home
Does it show
so much everyone knows?
so much it overflows?
Too much to hold or carry home
