Ribcrow are an electronic/post-punk duo based in the UK.
They meet in the ruins of the grey city, crafting dark psychedelic waves.

Track Name: Removal
Don't know what they came for
But they know they want more
Let's unmake the jigsaw
Listen for the encore

Eyes don't see
Lungs don't breathe
Brain don't dream
Heart don't beat

Ain't nothing to look for
So they stare at brick walls
Running when you can't run
Winning when you ain't won

I don't see
I don't breathe
I can't dream
I can't sleep

Let's see what you're bringing with ya
Offer it, sit, wait
Ready is a bed made
Ready is your head made

Slow the cuts
In lights so dim
A star so bright
A wind so white

Now you know what you came for
Digital ain't shit to this
Each incision frees you
All the walls broken into

New eyes I see
New lungs I breathe
A brain that glows
A heart enclosed

And veins incandescent
And iris flourescent
I breathe under water
The gift is pure
Track Name: Brittle
All your shields down
You've no armour now
All the layers peeled
Supreme nothing here

Click accept
Click you here
Clicks you fuck
Clicks you count
Can't fight it
Let it in
The thought you knew
But couldn't say
Plastic disgrace
Don't give in
No one cares
About your sins
But you must
Lest you fall
Before you know
No control

Now in close
Not morose now
All the layers peeled
Supreme nothing here
All your shields down
You've no armour now
All the layers peeled
Supreme nothing here

The veil snapped
Who can't look back
A deep regret
Admit you lacked
But now too late
You face it strong
You feel its heat
Tell it it's wrong
Tell it it's weak
It clambers, falls
And tries to reach
You spit at it
Its horns so brittle
Cries the heat
It's just too much
Too much for it
Track Name: Knots
Give in to screaming
Give in to screaming

Away from me a way from you, knots get tighter and turn to blue
Away from me a way from you, knots get tighter and turn to blue
Heart arrest and panic, panic, panic.

I bleed fire
Once I tire (to dreams)
We'll no longer breathe

I can't hate this
I won't take this
Away from in dreams

Give in to screaming
Turn to dust and turn to green
Give in to screaming
Give in to screaming
Turn to dust and turn to green

Away from me a way from you, knots get tighter and turn to blue
Heart arrest and panic, panic, panic
Away from you a way for me, let me dream please let me breathe
Knots get tighter and turn to blue

Turn to dust and turn to green

Pride or nothing
Break my feelings
Time will one day cease

Sun comes closer
Mountains shudder
When will you believe?

I bleed fire
Give me up, oh please
Falter away to dreams
Patience salvage me
Under and over me
(away from me a way from you, knots get tighter and turn to blue)
We'll no longer see
(away from me a way from you, knots get tighter and turn to blue)
You'll no longer scream
Carry me to sleep
Under and over me
Track Name: Tied
Starry eyes don't deny me baby
Tears of blood for you I bleed my baby

You know how my hips move
You know how my lips groove
Beneath our poison
It tastes so peak

Hold all the feelings
Between the bursting
Flames surround us
It tastes so sweet
As the lightning strikes
As the lightning strikes

Don't make it easy
Melt all around me
As the lightning strikes
As the lightning strikes

In all the anguish
In all the promises
Bleed on me
And the lightning strikes
And the lightning strikes

You know how my hips move
You know how my lips groove
Beneath our poison
It tastes so peak

Shield me, Shield me
Shield me, Shield me
Shield me, Shield me
As the lightning strikes

Hold me close
And the lightning strikes
Let me feel your heat
As the lightning strikes
Feel how my hips move
Taste how our lips groove
Baby it's sweet
Oh the lightning strikes
Oh the lightning strikes

Starry eyes don't deny me baby
Tears of blood for you I bleed my baby

You know how my hips move
You know how my lips groove
Beneath our poison
It tastes so peak
It tastes so peak

And the lightning strikes
Track Name: No Comfort
Nothing will comfort me
But not scared
This nightmare's mine
You try and comfort me but
I'm scared
I'll cut you up
I see you raise your arms but
You can't reach
I can't teach you
My comfort burns the wakeful
Outside my swamp is mine
You try and comfort me but
I'm afraid
I'm charred and burnt
I know you won't agree so
I hide, I hide from you

So now it comforts me but
I can't eat
I cannot sleep
I fast away my illness
It hurts
But feels so good
You try and comfort me but
It burns I barely live
I know you'll comfort me but
I'm scared
I'll cut you up
My comfort burns the wakeful
Outside my swamp is mine
You try and comfort me but
I'm afraid
I'm charred and burnt

I'll burn you down and watch you bleed

It's all cyanide
It's all suicide

Track Name: Nuclear
It's killing me
Is this not fun?
It's killing me
Is this not fun?
It's killing me
Is this not fun?
It's killing me
Is this not fun?

Bleeding from their eyes
You can tell them why
Nuclear disgrace
Someone tell them why
Watching at them bleed
But you don't want to see
Nuclear your lies
But nuclear I breathe

Nuclear bliss
Nuclear bliss
Nuclear bliss
Nuclear

It's killing me
Is this not fun?
It's killing me
Is this not fun?
It's killing me
Is this not fun?
It's killing me
Is this not fun?

X-ray do I stare
Stop I cannot care
I bleed my poison pour
You think I fucking care
I am every black
I consume your hate
Genies lay destroyed
All I do is wait

Nuclear bliss
Nuclear bliss
Nuclear bliss

Poison drown I poison pour
Every word that you ignore
Makes me stronger
Masks the doubt
Fuck within, fuck without
All above, no below
All is one and we are nothing
All your symbols hide them bitch
Baby mannequin feel the itch
Black flames they rain on you
You the victim of confusion
Want at kids by pyramid
The pyramid crumbles while you 'What? What?'
And the world will not turn
Watch it watching at you burn
I won't judge, you won't too
It's too late, too late for you
