about

Kids and Chemicals Springfield, Missouri

Drawing from a kaleidoscope of musical styles, Kids and Chemicals’ beat-driven tracks reference hip-hop, soul, IDM and jazz, but the result is unexpected: Patrick Carney’s production is dark and turbulent, and singer Elizabeth Carney possesses the voice to match. The pair executes a distinctly memorable, high-energy stage presence that often features improvised editing and live visual effects. ... more

Track Name: Bottle Fly
Five days, six days,seven days, soon
Nodding through your Sunday
Scratching at your open wound
I'll let you slip away

I wish you would die tonight
And nobody would know
I wish you would die tonight
Because you're already dead

I watch you sleep your fitful sleep
as your chest heaves slowly
I'll pick up your cigarette
when it falls out of your mouth and hits the floor

I wish you would die tonight
and nobody would know
I wish you would die tonight
because you're already dead
Track Name: Out of My Mind
The black still consumes
the color of your eyes
My face so bright
in those shiny black holes

Out
Out
Out of my mind

My arms are wrapped around my ribs
holding the last few pieces of me
inside out
out
Out of my mind
Track Name: Devil Girl
She's pulled out all her sutures
Got a fever of hate
Her head is twisted backwards
Pulled up to the gate
Licking fire and brimstone
Laughing at your grace
She's going to pull your loving arms
Into a black embrace

That girl's the devil

With her hypnogogic smile
She'll wrap you around her thighs
Move you to a place of darkness
Where only she resides
Don't be fooled by her
Intoxicating smell
Because your world will smell like sulfur
When she drags you to hell

That girl's the devil
Track Name: Empty Eyes
You clutch your ribs and look to me for
something I can't supply
You pull your shirt like it's hurting you
still searching my empty eyes
My stare is looking through you
I have nothing to give
My empty eyes can't give you anything

Your face is nothing to me
if I don't ever see you again
it will be nothing to me
Track Name: Toxin
If living is poison
I've got to drink it
And for love who crawls on all fours
What I deserve looks small
when my baby's not around
And how poor must I look
crawling on the ground

It's breaking my ribs
keeping me awake while I'm trying to sleep
It's ruining my mind
keeping me sober while I'm trying to drink
Track Name: Paralyzed

I watch you sleep your fitful sleep
as your chest heaves slowly
I'll pick up your cigarette
when it falls out of your mouth and hits the floor

I wish you would die tonight
and nobody would know
I wish you would die tonight

keeping me awake while I'm trying to sleep

keeping me sober while I'm trying to drink

It's toxin
in my blood
It's what the wicked call love

Paralyzed

Loving you
makes me do things I don't want to do
But I'll do anything you ask me to
I'll be your dirty little prostitute

Stay with me
and I'll be anything that you want me to be
I'll be your friend and your worst enemy
I'll find you after you've abandoned me

Lay with me and close your eyes
Lay with me until you're paralyzed

Be my friend
I'll buy you ecstasy and heroin
I'll make it easy for us to pretend
that we won't ever be alone again

Close your eyes
and lay with me until you're paralyzed
Listen to me while I tell you lies
of never ending happiness in paradise

Lay with me and close your eyes
Lay with me until you're paralyzed
Track Name: Cocaine
I hope you know that I didn't want to be around you
I hope you know that I inched away from your touch

I hope you know that I'm only around you
I hope you know that I'd do many things

for a taste of your cocaine
for smooth, cold bliss on the dance floor
Track Name: Gone
Kiss each cell
and flood me with your touch
the touch of warmth and nothingness
Without you
how do I talk, sing, tell time
where did you go when I needed you the most

When you're gone
the world is cold and severe
When you're gone
I feel I'll fade away
Track Name: Clarity
Somebody come drop nuclear bombs
Like an operation
Wipe this city from the map
It's growing like a cancer
I'll hide under the ground
Until the dust has settled
And then I will come out
And look around
Track Name: Moon
I used to walk alone in the night
I used to laugh alone in the night
I worshipped the moon that night
but you stepped in front of the moon
