Lava Lounge 02:25
Sleep fails me and I couldn't tell you why Why I can't find my peace to quiet down my mind My head rests beside an empty satin pillow case It was never meant for you It was never meant for you... You have let me down And I have let you go You have let me down And I have let you...I have to let you go Clouds settle over the Pacific Northwest shore Inhaling breathes the salt into my restless soul Tears fall as the door closes for one last goodbye You could never wait for me You could never wait for me... You have let me down And I have let you go You have let me down And I have let you...I have to let you go

Oh Todd What did you do? Oh Todd Tell me what did you do? Did you steal that car in Amsterdam? Did you lose your flared jeans again? Did you watch the sunset in her eyes while your girl sits at homes? Oh Todd What did you do? Oh Todd Tell me what did you do? Did you miss the soundcheck in Stuttgart? Is your sketchbook missing on the road? How you found a way to calm the wolf, the wolf inside your soul? Oh Todd What did you do? Oh Todd Tell me what did you do? Did you get arrested on the way To cut your Farah Fawcett hair? Will you ever find the pack, the pack where you belong at last? Oh Todd What did you do? Oh Todd Tell me what did you do? Everyone has a laugh At the way you cut your paints Four decades and a searching soul, still you just don't know Oh Todd What did you do? Oh Todd Tell me what did you do?

Dirty Water 02:24
Don't drink the water I hear it's dirty From all the sins that You make it wash clean I take to the forest Feathers in my hair To feel her cry to me Like wind upon my skin Let me be Let me be Let me be I'm running to them The moon he watches And the wolf he howls Your taste between my teeth Take three steps away I won't let you fade But I can't let you win For your own metal cage Won't fit in my prison So... Let me be Let me be Let me be I'm running to them

Because I've been searching for the man That I found five months ago Can you tell me tell me where he's gone As I'm sure he's gone away He might be hiding underneath A glass of warm whiskey But I hope he finds the surface sometime soon Or else he'll drown Blank spaces Where once there were pages Can you tell me Where did you words go His scent is starting to fade away From the Tshirt that I stole That time I followed him to his home Of San Francisco It's not like me to prolong the search Once the footsteps have all gone But there's one last one last light of hope Still burning in my mind Blank spaces Where once there were pages Can you tell me Where did you words go The cold it makes me shiver so And blurs my sense of sight I don't know don't know where to stand So that you find my hand Your breath is what I want to hear As sleep washes over me Will you come back come back home to me And make the wind seem quiet Blank spaces Where once there were pages Can you tell me Where did you words go

I am made of caffeine and nicotine And the way that you touch me One more moonlight and you're mine I can wait I can wait Smell of smoke on your skin Glint of sunlight in your eyes One more hour and you'll go I can wait I can wait...i can wait Because it's your kiss that I feel It's your kiss that I taste I want your teeth to gnaw at my soul I want to be your thorn No holy cross can harm you Much too young for the old Three decades walking this earth But how old is your soul In the darkness you take me (you take me) In the glow I hear not a word (not a sound) So I yearn for your curse (and only yours) I will stay Because it's your kiss that I feel It's your kiss that I taste I want your teeth to gnaw at my soul I want to be your thorn

about

A new incarnation of punkrockdoll and lauren.napier. Sometimes I put down the pencil and pick up the acoustic guitar. With this EP I hope that you feel as though you are sitting next to me, surrounded by candles and the pull of the moon. Recorded with my guitar Görli, productive tears, new addresses, and a few sips of whiskey.

"‘Void of Course’ has a powerful tranquility that’s not short on emotional rawness and vulnerability that creates Napier’s unique, but nonetheless punk, sound. " - AFROPUNK June 2016
