Storm 04:33
The rain comes, and I’m pushing it down. The skies lift. I can see what’s around. The walls close. My heart starts to pound. I push through with a thundering sound. Hear that thundering sound. The wind swirls my feet off the ground. The clouds spin. They pull me up from way down. With that thundering sound. What flows through me escapes endlessly. Hear that thundering sound. Forces calm. My strength now is found. I lift my eyes up looking for some safe ground. With that thundering sound. What goes through me escapes undemandingly. Hear that thundering sound. The snow comes, and I’m dancing it down. As my mind lifts, I see everything. I’m found.

I Can See 02:36
Oh, how can I explain this strange unexpected change. I guess I’ll learn to fight, try to figure out what’s right. Cover up in red. Without fear, oh I’m not dead oh I’m not dead. I can see. I battle in the night. My friends don’t know my plight. Mask around my head. I sense your near oh without fear oh I’m not dead oh I’m not dead. I can see. I can feel you now. I can see somehow. Somehow. Somehow. I can see. To walk I use my cane, hide this unexpected fame. I can see.

Alias 03:42
I watch from the stairs, Searching for anyone, don’t care. I drink down my fight, That’s what it takes to sleep through the night. But two leaps away and I’d die for you. My heart falls to doom, my lie. And all of my shame, Looking for anyone, to blame. A light in my sight, Can’t get close enough to make it right. But two leaps away and I’d die for you. My heart falls to doom, my lie. But two leaps away and I’d break him through. I won’t fall to doom, I’d fight. I don’t know where to go, who to be, what’s inside of me. And all of this time, Running from anyone one, in my mind. My strength not my might, I can’t leave. I can’t accept the flight. But two leaps away and I’d die for you. My heart falls to doom, my lie. But two leaps away and I’d break him through. I won’t fall to doom, I’d fight, for you, I’d fight.

The Phoenix 04:10
One by one other’s thoughts invade my mind. I try to run. I try my best to hide. But these thoughts they creep inside. I can’t stop thinking of you. There’s nothing I can do. You’re crying. I can’t stop thinking of you. There’s nothing else, just darkened cells and lightening, lightening. Keys and locks all these doors redefine. I lift and spin push each and every line. In my heart some dark resides. I can’t stop thinking of you. There’s nothing I can do. You’re dying. I can’t stop thinking of you. There’s nothing else, just darkened cells, fantastic lightening. Please just push it down, please just push it down. Please just push it down, please just push it down. Sparks reacting, it will grow, it will blow. Let me go, oh let me go. All these thoughts they come from what’s inside. As half myself I’ve caused a deep divide. Now I choke this pain’s in stride. I can’t stop thinking of you. There’s nothing I can do. You’re dying. I can’t stop thinking of you. There’s nothing else, just darkened cells, fantastic lightening.

Sugar 04:44
My memories go again, as I pack my bags and leave. Knowing there just isn’t a place in this world for me to be. How can I stay this way, watching you decay away. From one touch of my skin. Seeing you death descend from just one innocent kiss. I keep thinking of all the things in my life that I will truly miss. Why do I need this game, holding you, without the blame. From one touch of my skin. Each one they stay with me. Walking away from him, I catch sight of the mark on me. Wonder if there will be a day, when my life could be for me. The next step I might take, may be my one last escape. From the touch of my skin. Each one they stay with me, oh strength and fear don’t disappear. Past, today, just one touch and you’ll forever stay. With one touch of my skin, one touch of my skin.

Of all these things this brilliance fades. You see my mind. And all this time my diamonds, chains. You're mesmerized. Then what you found my curse unbound. Your hands untied. Then in this line I push your pain - fantasize, fantasize. Then see and show. I bend scenes it makes me whole. Then freeze and go. You see me as I say so. And all this time this masquerade. You will not find. Your easy prey my thoughts just change. Victim now tied. Watch as my villain is freed. Then see and show. I bend scenes it makes me whole. Then freeze and go. You see me as I say so. You see my foe. You see me as I say so. I have always been. I will always be. Watch as my villain is freed. Of all these things this beauty fades. You see in side. .I hold you down and stop your sound - you’re mesmerized. What as my villain is freed.

Claws 04:05
So I awaken - I can’t tell if it’s real the pain is true. So true to me - what’s that I see? My mind is vacant - I don’t know what this is so deep, so blue. Wait is that you? Everytime, everytime - I feel like I’m losing my mind. The shock of what streams - My pulse stabs like it hates me through and through. And now I’m new - what did you do? Everytime, everytime - I feel like I’m losing my mind. Everytime you bleed. All of what I see, I don’t see you but I don’t see me. I must escape this - takes everything I have to make one move. Wait is that you? What did you do? Everytime, everytime - I feel like I’m losing my mind. Everytime you bleed. All of what I see, I don’t see you but I don’t see me. Cutting all the way through - culling all of you. No piece of me, I’m just a sliver of what you see. You bleed.

Conjuror 05:03
Just smoke and then you see One flash and you can’t define me or find me One twist and I climb through These walls they just now confine you, I’m behind you I’m a conjuror, I will have my fame No one deserves this more than me The best illusion is never free You can’t see me. You can’t see me Like I’ve said my brother, I just have no shame Everything thinks the worst you see But you believe in me faithfully You can’t see me. You can’t see me Just smoke and then you see One flash and you can’t define me or find me One twist and I climb through These walls they just now confine you, I’m behind you I’m a conjuror, I cannot be tamed All the mischief and abilities I will claim what is mine fearlessly Or not and that is fine with me. Like I’ve said my brother, I won’t take this blame Everyone thinks you are the key But you believe so blindingly That you are free. You can’t see me. I’m the king of frozen things I’m a conjuror, I will have my fame No one deserves this more than me The best illusion is the death of me And that you’re free. And that you’re free.

Here we go walking Can you see a change? All my thoughts are with you. Can you feel the pain? Can you feel the pain? Can you feel the pain? And all what come through You won’t be the same again. A test of what’s true Load this up for me to take away. Let me walk away. Let me walk away. Then I whisper to you Don’t you want to stay with me here today? Let’s walk and step to this ledge Your destiny, my fame. Let me walk away. Let me walk away. Walk with me. Run with me Fight for me. Walk with me. Run with me. Fight for me. Bleed for me. You will never be free. I hold all of your strings. I hold all of your strings. So watch what you do. Can you sense the game with me begins. One step, just one move And she will never speak your name again. She will never speak your name again. Never again. Walk with me. Run with me Fight for me. Walk with me. Run with me. Fight for me. Bleed for me. You will never be free. I hold all of your strings. I pull all of your strings. I hold everything. Can you feel the pain. Can you feel the pain. Puppet on a string.

about

Koshari Falls Church, Virginia

Built around the sparkling voice of Barb Western and the signature guitar playing of Bryan Baxter, Koshari blends the spacey, effects-drenched swirl of bands like My Bloody Valentine or Beach House with a bit of aggression and heaviness. The result is a creative voice at once familiar yet without close analog. ... more
