about

Medusa UK

The slimey lungs of a 15 year old punk girl, vitriolic and damaged, transplanted into the depressed wife of a lonewolf private detective who hides her only secret at the local laundrette.

Track Name: Sid and Nancy
Give me time, give me time to ease this doubt
It just ain’t right, it just ain’t right how much we shout

Send me a letter, send me something that smells of you
To drag me down then I’d end up just like you

Falling down the rabbit hole
Quit hassling me, quit hassling me
We’re like Sid and Nancy, yeah I know
Quit hassling me, oh just shut up and let me go

Uh-oh ayy-oh
Let me go

Can’t deny, can’t deny that you’re messed up
You live to whine, I get the strangest chill when I’m…

Falling down the rabbit hole
Quit hassling me, quit hassling me
We’re like Sid and Nancy, yeah I know
Quit hassling me, oh just shut up and let me go

Uh-oh ayy-oh
Let me go
Track Name: Lip Service
Maybe see you around
I’d say for sure but I’m still waiting
For the claws to come out ah/aah

I’m still waiting

Now the chips are down
And what you say I don’t believe you
You’re still not around ah/aah

I’m still waiting

So I’ll see you around
You said you’d howl but I’m still waiting
Oh, just to be found ah/aah
Track Name: Absinthe Minded
As I hit the road
To split this place
I pass the strip now, ah/
Where we used to play

I see your empty seat
Though I’ll never look back
It’s outta my hands now, ah/
The past’s the past

Maybe you serve another

If you were just sure
If you’d give me a sign
I would turn back now, ah/
Because you’re mine

You’re absinthe minded, so absinthe minded
Track Name: Luxury Crisis
Well, you’ve had too much to think
And you’ve thought enough to drink
All my friends are telling me
I don’t need it, I don’t need it

Though you say you feel the same
All you ever really want is games
When you see how much I’ve changed
I won’t need it, I won’t need it

Whoa...

It’s such a luxury
Such a luxury crisis

My instinct’s telling me something’s wrong
I’ve been under you for too long, yeah!
Track Name: Lydia
Now honey, one pill makes you better
The other makes you ill
Neither one will make you happy

And when I think you finally get it
You go back three spaces
So now I’m gonna close my eyes

Really think that’d make you happy?
[Really think?]
Really think that’d make you happy?
[Really think?]

Keep tryin’
You really think I’m slime
Track Name: Call of the Abyss
I‘ve been lost, I couldn’t eat
I’ve been so fucked up, you won’t believe, no, no

I’ve been down, it’s been bleak
I’ve been damaged goods for all to see

Now all is lost with you, what do I do?

You think you’re nice
You think you’re so kind
How could you let me in then change your mind? No, no

Your spell wore off
Now I see
You’re a toxic bitch who lied to me

Now all is lost with you, what do I do?

You made me crazy
Track Name: The Sweetest Elixir
I nurse a secret, I’ve got something to tell you
I want something of substance like you wanted me to, oh-oh

Play with me, soothe me, wait until I’m strong
Tease me, choose me, tell me I’m not wrong

They say ‘love is the sweetest elixir’, with the worst aftertaste
I know if you don’t use this life then you’ll lose it, there’s no time to waste

Don’t talk to me, I am not your toy
Trust me, I won’t bring you joy

I nurse a secret, I’ve got something to tell you
I want something of substance but just not with you, oh-oh

They say ‘love is the sweetest elixir’, with the worst aftertaste
I know if you don’t use this life then you’ll lose it, there’s no time to waste

To waste
Time to waste
Track Name: Black Snow
Once you get a taste
It’s alive
You’d better enjoy it
Before the black snow seeps inside

The ecstasy is agony, leave it
That feeling
It’ll pull you under to survive

That don’t mean I want you

Just like the real thing
It dies
Best to accept it
Before it’s safe to be outside

Absolutely no-one left, it’s bliss
It lives
Strung out on teddy bear pills
Track Name: Think It Over
Get it right, gotta get it right this time

I’d rather this and be your friend
We‘ve come so close again and again

Time rolls on and you don’t choose, honey
The sun, it sets, I’m so confused

Think it over

That’s just a thought in my mind
And I’ll choose what’s real time after time

Think it over

Is it all or nothing?
Track Name: Cherry Red
Cherry Red, you know that I’m bleeding for you
Cherry Red, you know that I read the signs
Bury it and I will be waiting for you, for you
Cherry Red, you know this ain’t goodbye

Cherry Red, you know that I’m bleeding for you
Even though I knew you’d leave sometime
I was sure I was losing my mind before you
Cherry Red, I need you by my side

My baby’s coming back for me
For me

You wonder why, oh, why
The answers died
You ask me why, oh, why
There is no guide
