lyrics

Greater than you think,
the divide between
what you want and what you need.
Force the two to meet
and see what they breed.
A ruinous union

You may believe it's good enough
without being reminded of the love you may have lost
But holding out for brighter sheen
the list of possibilities recedes and shrinks to one

Call me in your sleep
Swallow the secrets you keep
Know the end is a breath away
Pull me from the brink,
from the edge of the dream
where I've lingered too late

You may believe it's good enough
without being reminded of the cost of breaking oaths
But I cannot deny the plea
my body makes imploring me to stop and give it up

Seeping into the bone
maiden, mother, and crone
Better leave it alone
Let her live in the song

You may believe it's good enough
without being reminded of the blood we've given up
Take my life. I'm breaking down, the soul decays
All reason is obliterated, pray the Furies come.

Not Blood Paint Brooklyn, New York

Not Blood Paint is a theatrically vivid—and sonically intense—four-piece from Bushwick, formed in 2008 by guitarists George Frye and Joe Stratton, bassist Mark Jaynes and drummer Seth Miller.

Musically, it’s a group impossible to pigeonhole, far removed from traditional verse-chorus-verse structures. The songs manifest as detailed stories that worm into the minds of always-shifting narrators.
