lyrics

pristine covers on my eyes
block out all the lights
fresh air humbles me
with all its purity
acid raindrops, sugar coating
and shattered glass
I can hear your voice
in this crystal symphony

I'm alone
in terms of my short sight
I'm happy to be blind
I imagine you're alright
still, don't go
because I'm so obtuse
I'm happy to be used
if I'm used by you

your fingertips are haunting me
and burning my skin
my bleeding wounds cut with a knife
invited you in
so now you've got me all tied up
inside your hair
but I try to convince myself
that I'm still aware

I'm alone
in terms of my short sight
I'm happy to be blind
I imagine you're alright
still, don't go
because I'm so obtuse
I'm happy to be used
if I'm used by you

pristine covers on my eyes
block out all the lights
fresh air humbles me
with all its purity
acid raindrops, sugar coating
and shattered glass
I can hear your voice
in this crystal symphony

I'm alone
in terms of my short sight
I'm happy to be blind
I imagine you're alright
still, don't go
because I'm so obtuse
I'm happy to be used
if I'm used by you

I'm alone
in terms of my short sight
I'm happy to be blind
I imagine you're alright
still, don't go
because I'm so obtuse
I'm happy to be used
if I'm used by you

about

Hey Karen Eindhoven, Netherlands

Hey Karen is an alias for Bartek Urban, who creates electronica, synthpop, and industrial - the stuff that both melts your heart and your brain.
Home recordings and lo-fi aesthetic aren't necessarily a bad thing, since he believes the feeling is more important. A full scope of that feeling can be seen in his audiovisual live shows, which he regularly performs since 2011.
