lyrics

i find myself in situations
that make me blush like shit
i know i'm not so stupid
but some things i don't get
what men are saying on the tv
what girls say on the street
what all my friends are taking
and who they want to meet

people denying people
people avoiding people
people forgetting people
people that are no people
i'm people who know people
but now i know no one
my faith in this collision
is now coming undone

this is what we've all become
this is what's on the news
i must have lost track of time
now i feel so confused

the filth of present moment
is filling up my lungs
the pressure keeps on rising
i'm done i'm fucked i'm strung
why do they smile on tv?
why do they dance like this
they should be sharpening knives
they should prepare their fists

people who look like mirrors
people who dress up well
people who nicely pretend
people who'll go to hell
i'm people who knew people
and now I'm all alone
should I be running now
should I pretend I'm strong

this is now
this is the present time
this is what's real
i feel so inadequate
like i've been long asleep
this is what we've all become
this is what's on the news
i must have lost track of time
now i feel so confused

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.
