lyrics

nighttime questions
swirl in circles, uncertain. 
tomorrow…
break the spell, or
just continue the performance? 


halfway conscious,
choose comfort
over conscience
myopic, 
simpler to get by on optics,
unobstructed. 


(we all bend to authority.)
until we don’t, we won’t have nice things.
 

leave it to the experts 
who have your best
interests in their minds 
and never look behind the curtain,
and don’t you dare breach
your obedience. 

casual monsters, 
cool as they throw you
under the bus, 
then sleep like babies, 
and treat for dinner,
‘cause it’s just business
nothing personal.

we all bend to authority. 
until we don’t, we won’t have nice things.  

halfway conscious,
choose comfort
over conscience
myopic, 
simpler to get by on optics,
unmolested.  


casual monsters, 
cool as they throw you
under the bus, 
then sleep like babies, 
and treat for dinner,
‘cause it’s just business
nothing personal.

we all bend to authority. 
until we don’t, we won’t have nice things.

nighttime questions
swirl in circles, uncertain. 
tomorrow…
break the spell, or
just continue the performance?

formed by Timo Ellis in 2010, NETHERLANDS magic lies in the contrasts it sets up: falsetto vocals, odd time signatures, and haunting hooks transform their monstrous power into weirdly delicious and dynamic songs. The overall effect is not unlike that of Swans and Dio playing simultaneously, atop an actual mountain of MDMA. ... more
