After The Explosion

from Conquest by Black Hay



Now the best is over
And we've turned out the light
All that's left to say dear is goodnight
All the walls we've crumbled
In the name of liberty
Just to find there's nothing there to see

Gave my gift to the Trojans
Still you let me right in
Now the air feels cold upon your skin
After the explosion
Tired of the lie
Tired of the word 'goodbye'

I'm not faking it
I'm not staying to pay for it

Black Hay London, UK

Black Hay is the project of London-born Gideon K and a motley crew of collaborators.

Previously described as "Worse than Leonard Cohen", Black Hay's music has gone from noirish garage rock, to grungey alt-country low-rock, via DIY house-bound balladry, to a current incarnation of cold-hearted post-punk indie synth-tronica.

The new single 'Always Be Mine' is out now.
