LeylaDaze Seeing Cat Child live, I felt i was watching a lost cousin of Panda Bear from the deep south~~ Stone is a dark and beautiful track which winds slowly through folk landscapes but never loses its animalistic weirdness. A unique combo, standing out FRESH in a world of homogeny.

dragonflies land on my fingers
in the thick southern air
eyes in soft focus
an uncertain stare
i am still as stone
and I stand alone
i think of goddesses
and dollar bills
and suddenly I'm filled
with the emptiness of waiting once again
and strangers guess my gender
they will never know
the vastness of the ocean that I hold

it plays like a film
softly on the wall
i don't know
you at all

am i a ghost?
i seem so good at haunting
feels so right to float
it feels like fade
like folded wings
like tormented singers
in a long delay of essence
and the questions have escaped
it's always the same
my silence leaves them guessing
it's always the same

it plays like a film
softly on the wall
i don't know
you at all

(then suddenly, the peaceful nothingness.
a choir of angels shot directly
into the mind. Finally, stillness.)
