about

'Death Is Screaming' is the lead single of our Glitz EP and it's about
the escapism in pop music as well as personal painful aspects of
uncontrollable mania. It's also about trying to have a sense of humour
about the whole thing.

I felt compelled to write this song because as a young person trying
to survive in the world, especially the world of music, I needed to
put my frustration in a coherent and positive format as opposed to the
usual self destructive behaviour that mania compels us towards.

Iva M

lyrics

I feel megalomaniacal
like a priest with a cheque
signed by all the apostles of freedom, love and sex
I'm crushing on poetry
cos it makes death look cool
and kisses are sliced into pieces in a sacrificial pool.
My twin says he hates me
his wound is moving and thick
and I'm reading on books
that should cure my sick
Dog says your manic depression
is no judgement from God
It's just sucking the dick
of the mirror you bought.
Look out of the window
remember a crime
dance to my discoteque
I'm feeling fine
Locked into the blind eye of a cigarette,
shit,
people are dying,
you can't get out of bed.

Give me your guts
give me your heart
I got desire to tear you apart
Give me your guts
Give me your heart
I got desire to tear you apart
Give me your ecstasy
inject it hard
I got desire to tear you apart
Give me your guts
give me your heart
I got desire to tear you apart

And Death is screaming
screaming screaming
Death is screaming
You're beautiful and precious and gorgeous and stunning and everything about you is brilliant

I've wrestled with an alligator
hussled with a whale
handcuffed lightning
throw thunder in jail
I've wrestled with an alligator
hussled with a whale
handcuffed lightning
throw thunder in jail
I'm bad

When I walk down the street and the street walks down on me
and everybody thinks that everybody is crazy
and Death is screaming
screaming screaming
Death is screaming
screaming screaming
You're beautiful and precious and gorgeous and stunning and everything about you is brilliant.
You're beautiful and precious and gorgeous and stunning,
bitch, everything about you is brilliant.
Fade out
Fade out!
