lyrics

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...

about

Harlequin Jones Los Angeles, California

Harlequin Jones rebel against any easy categorization, calling the songs roughly "piano punk and blues." They mix catchy dark pop hooks with low, lush, female vocals alongside elegant yet aggressive piano & drums.
