about

Seed Bud Bloom is about the bitter-sweet life cycle of a Moth. It features beats made from coat hangers, burning leaves, thumb piano, a music box, bass, live drums, vocals, clapping, a shruti box, hand chimes, and a wooden fish.

This track is the accompanying B-side of the single 'Kismet', and is taken from the new EP, Seed Bud Bloom, which will be coming out in May '15.

lyrics

I see cycles
of seed bud bloom,
shrivel shrinking
back into
life, sinking
up to meet
epicentres of heat.

I am the moth,
rising on the treadmill,
no button off,
I must drink my fill.
I made my vow,
to live by the flame,
and beside him
i must die the same.

To the light bulb,
and his nectar sweet,
my dristi
in this moshpit.
Don't hold me back,
I can't even hold myself.

He had it good,
oh he had it real bad,
the desire
with no plan.
We gave him gold,
in clothes old,
but he wasn't sold,
couldn't be told, no

To the lightbulb,
and his nectar sweet,
my dristi
in this moshpit.
Don't hold me back,
I can't even hold myself.

I see cycles
of seed bud bloom,
shrivel shrinking
back into
life, sinking
up to meet
epicentres of heat.

The lightbulb,
the lightbulb,
I will see you
at the lightbulb.

Hear his waxy wing
sizzle sing, and if
I could do it all again,
I wouldn't change a thing.
