from Conquest by Black Hay



I'm sorry if I'm staring
But you look like someone I once fucked
You can turn away if you want to
But it's everywhere I look

Sex is a monster, clawing at you until all of your skin falls off
On the carpet of some poor stranger's bedroom

It's like I'm driving around with a raygun on
That turns everything to poison
Like I'm a walking bomb set to explode

Sex is a monster driving you on until all of the wheels fall off
It takes you half way around the world until you're in control again
Sex is a monster and you're doing things not even all this rain can wash off
And it's never enough, never enough, never enough

At 22 you're a young buck
At 23 you're an old fuck
I'm just trying to let the goods times roll
Before all of the girls run screaming

That's a nice prick you've got there, son - I hope you know how to use it
That's a nice prick you've got there, son - but be careful just how you use it

I'll build new pyramids one brick at a time
I'll build a tower right up to the skyline
They don't get that everything we do is for them

Some nights I turn all of the house lights on
But the shadows won't leave me alone
I'm plucking grey hairs out - 2, 3, maybe 4 at a time

At 22 you're a young buck
At 29 you're an old fuck
And it's money and empire that turn me on
More than all of the fair young maidens

At 22 you're a young buck
at 33 you're an old fuck
And you'll have to find some other weapon
to make somebody love you

Nice prick you got there, son - I hope you know how to use it
That's a nice prick you got there, son - I'd be careful not to abuse 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.
