Here we are again Evaporating Eyes fed eyes fed skin Tell me what is not given Eyes that know the end See the flora is winning Eyes that know the end Know it’s just the beginning Its just the beginning Its just the beginning Its just the beginning And we’re going with it In the scene of our stark skeletons We still rise through the slack and the hustling Doesn’t mean that we’ve done anything Doesn’t mean that we’ve really changed anything In the way that each day has its themes In the way that each age has its memes Something new will take over our dreams Just as soon as our heads turn crystalline Its just the beginning Its just the beginning Its just the beginning And we’re going with it

Sometimes I strive to hear my name with fresh ears Sometimes I feel I can get a clean perspective Sometimes I try to see my face with fresh eyes I try to at least agree with my own reflection I prefer to Ask these questions Though it’s exhausting I realize I can’t escape This introspection I must shake things up Windex my eyes I abhor my the daily tasks In my life, routines don’t last Everyday, I find it hard To give out the same business card Sometimes I strive to hear my name with fresh ears Sometimes I feel I can get a clean perspective Sometimes I try to see my face with fresh eyes I try to at least agree with my own reflection

How we exist Thrown into this Without a warning Who would have thought We’ve never fought Or thought of leaving A hologram A silver ray A nest a glowing The only kind to spike the heart The inner knowing ~ I’m offering A humble gift I will not hurt you This Athame These spoken words A spell of virtue Will you accept Me in the storm To warm this altar The prism of Uncanny love That does not falter ~ If you want to We could work together If we don’t, well then we’ll never know With good weather We could stay together Ride this bitch as far as she will go When I met you it seemed that you Had never been touched When you met me you though that I Had seem too much You had a way about you Pure indoors and wicked outside I showed you to the garden Now its your turn to be the guide // All the effort that you’ve ever made times 10 Returned to you All the kindness that you’ve ever showed to anyone Will pull you through Standing in the rain You sanctify your body element Never looking back you gather everything That’s relevant

There there she goes She’s spinning again Hey what do you know She’s got all these new friends As they come as they go No one can deny Theres a riddle we covet In the blue of her eyes There there she goes Shes at it again Lighting up breaking down Going on about the end As it comes as it goes She laughs and cries And I stay with the sadness In the blue of her eyes Breathe in your body Although you constantly fight it It constantly wins Its time to surrender Remember the girl that you were And for this fight You must put down your weapons Beneath all your cleverness Remember and inhabit yourself And don’t you dare think about giving up now Before you have asked for help This is the price For leaving your trust on the shelf Seems like I know you Better than you know yourself Your paradise Does not exist in this place The day that you’ll find it Is the day that you’ll conjure A deeper grace Those blue eyes that pale face Pretending to hear me I wrote it down just in case You might decide to see Because I love your Magic More than I loath your mentality But some day it may be too much And I’ll need to do what’s right for me

An Samhradh, an Fhomhair, An Geimhreadh, an tEarrach Cuimhnigh i gconai Damhsa Cailleach Last time I was here Wearing plastic bag as a shield Sheltered by an ancient stone Much larger than the cross in the field An Samhradh, an Fhomhair, An Geimhreadh, an tEarrach Cuimhnigh i gconai Damhsa Cailleach A million years of ashes spring to life We have reached the moment of the turning of the tides Hidden in a world underground An orphan now is daughter to a mother she has found Inside a vision Untouched by bitterness A torch in the darkness The only thing I trust A switch, I was jolted Electrified the earth The current crept in sideways And let me know my worth A rock in the ocean A wet and soggy mire Preserved in a capsule And purified by fire To stop to rewind Slow motion kind of day Not new not changing And Nothing went away The rock the ocean Unreal state of grace Perceived the motion Of something lost in space

Written on my palms A hidden riddle It’s all a riddle really I’m a girl who’ll never know it all With my hands I built A little city An endless project is the only thing That makes me feel natural ~ These habits formed before I knew my name I spoke my first words These habits tell me when To heed the call These hungers are the last ones at my parties They never leave me, no These hungers are the reason for this all ~ Wonder if I’ll ever make it simple Be glad to loose control Wonder if I’ll ever loose control If one day I woke up with no filters If I just said what’s in my head I wonder if you still would think I’m cool ~chorus~ Everybody says don’t sweat the small stuff That it will kill me quick So I sweat all the biggest things I know Is it such a crime, to want the big fish If I can live with less Without this hunger I would never grow ~chorus~ These habits….

The end is near Closer than you think Life as we know Teeters on the brink Dare to read the news Better run for higher ground Or run for president Cuz its RIP underground Stars fallen from a blackened sky Let the light pierce through your eyes Borrowed from a time we cared Wolves that fear a mother mare The end is near Closer than you think Life as we know Teeters on the brink Stars fallen from a blackened sky Let the light pierce through your eyes Borrowed from a time we cared Wolves that fear a mother mare

On Isle Iona lives a girl She quenched the thirst of the prince of the world Holy Water Holy Water Thick in the mist of green Dun I Pearls ascend from well to sky Holy Water Her Holy Water She flew into the in the veil As the ships set sail with their inquisition And now, just as they’ve feared, she is not leaving Behind the veil, the girl is still breathing in… Holy Water Her Holy Water On Isle Iona Her body rests Un-weathered by times long conquest Severed from sight in the remains Of the holy well of the witches reign

about

Metal Mother Los Angeles, California

Hailing from the edge of familiarity, Metal Mother is the pseudonym of LA-based performance artist, vocalist, pianist, and composer Tara Timberman. At the intersection of art pop and experimental electronic, Metal Mother weaves synth-heavy tapestries of intricate rhythms, melancholic melody, classical arrangements, and etheric and often spastic vocals into cathartic pieces of sonic ASMR. ... more
