No Good 04:15
No Good Look out the cat came out of the bag Surprise surprise, I’m a drag Waving all my red flags Every day, I’m bad news Another page you’re reading through I’m sinking down to the bottom of blue The doctor says there’s nothing he can do And it’s not like I’m the only one for you Baby I’m no good I’m just gonna let you down I know you’d save me if you could But if you try we’re both gonna drown It’s so dark here under water, to me it feels like home Baby I’m no good And I don’t wanna drag you down All the pills they take a toll I feel old, I feel cold I’m much too damaged for damage control And I get moody and insecure Better or worse, I’m never sure I’m in a daze, these days are a blur Baby I’m no good I’m just gonna let you down I know you’d save me if you could But if you try we’re both gonna drown It’s so dark here under water, to me it feels like home Baby I’m no good And I don’t wanna drag you down Down down down down down

Looks like I lost my magic, I’ve been draining for a long long time I took a vow of silence, when you mistook me for sorrows young bride I shall rise, calm, clear eyed A nightmare, a prayer and a dream A promise that was tried and true But it was just a lie And all this time.. you knew Guided by the light of the long night moon Now I don’t need you I was too proud to break But I could bend into whatever you liked I had to leave my body, the pain you caused me nearly split my side I shall rise, calm, clear eyed A nightmare, a prayer and a dream A promise that was tried and true But it was just a lie And all this time.. you knew Guided by the light of the long night moon Now I don’t need you

Honey Trap 04:19
You don’t remember, but I have no doubt You started up this game of cat and mouse On the wrong side, a score for sudden death Hiding in the shadows, from the heat of your breath Honey trap, wish I could take it back Who knew it could taste so bad Your silver tongue was your weapon of choice My body shivers at the timbre of your voice Running for the exit in nothing but your coat Choking on the secrets in the back of my throat Honey trap, wish I could take it back Who knew it could taste so bad To love you was too easy None of it was true but I believed it Honey trap, wish I could take it back Who knew it could taste so bad

I don’t know why I’m always wrong Maybe I’ve been this way all along I buried my heart in your back yard Nothing will grow, no it’s still cold and hard Show me your hands, show me again Show me where you’ve been and why you ran I hate the fear of never having you again Just let me go I hope you never make amends Why, why, why? Do I hold on to your every word Starting to think I like when it hurts Why, why, why? Do I hold on to your every word I’m starting to think I like when love hurts You dig it up every day But you forget the words you came to say Held in your hands you throw it in the dirt Buried again in hope and hurt Why, why, why? Do I hold on to your every word Starting to think I like when it hurts Why, why, why? Do I hold on to your every word I’m starting to think I like when love hurts

Misty morning dark sky, running for the train Take me back to your arms so I may sleep again Another time change and a suitcase in the way Thought that I might cave rolling out the door No one’s ever wanted me to stay before Escaped to a mountain and a castle by the sea I looked all around us but you only looked at me I was frightened but you held on patiently I want to heal, want to give you more No one’s ever wanted me this way before Oooo...Never had a wish come true Felt like just a body since the age of 17 Learned to keep my mouth shut never saying what I mean Now I see there’s more than one thing that a boy could want from me Never did I dream I could be adored No ones ever tried to stick around before Can’t help but ask how you’re so sure No one’s ever wanted to keep me before Oooo...Never had a wish come true

Drinking warm red wine It’s all you left behind I savour every sip, like poison to my lips Just to black out and help me forget A cold heart to miss With a dangerous kiss I didn’t see the signs, I died a thousand times Release me from the shackles of my mind Who knew loving you’s a crime I’m wanted, doing time My hands were bound, I watched you lock and load I wish you’d left me cold I keep my powder dry Can’t say the same for my eyes A flash in the pan, that was not the plan Who are you and where is my man? An evil deed ya done To take my secrets and run I’m candy to your eyes, but you were compromised How foolish I never realized Who knew loving you’s a crime I’m wanted, doing time My hands were bound, I watched you lock and load I wish you’d left me cold

Sweet Boy 05:08
It’s too late to say sorry for missing your final day You broke down before me and I looked the other way Everyone told me I’m making it harder for you to go I packed up my tears so you wouldn’t hear and I slipped out the door Sweet boy where are you now I can’t stop calling for you.. don’t know how Sweet boy where are you now I can’t stop calling for you.. don’t know how Don’t have many good memories but you are in every one Now I don’t have a remedy for the shadow I’ve become Everyone told me I’m making it harder for you to go I packed up my tears so you wouldn’t hear and I slipped out the door Sweet boy where are you now I can’t stop calling for you.. don’t know how Sweet boy where are you now I can’t stop calling for you.. don’t know how

Cathedral 04:12
Looking for an answer in a tired old cathedral I’m waiting in a line with a hundred broken people Sell me a story, ease my worried mind I need a reason why we’re running out of time I’m on my knees, I’m crying to the sky Calling out for anyone who might sympathize All this talk of sacrifice doesn’t work, I wish it would I would take your place in a moment if I could Take my ears, take my eyes Oooo I tried and tried Please stop, I’m overthinking too much I’m thinking I should give up I’m thinking have a I done enough? It feels like a big mistake Just to sit around and wait But I don’t know, I don’t know how long it takes You are not aware yet, you’ve only just begun to hurt And I’m supposed to smile and say you’re fine when you get worse I can’t even warn you, you’d never understand I want to believe my own lies, in your eyes til the end Take my ears, take my eyes Oooo I tried and tried Please stop, I’m overthinking too much I’m thinking I should give up I’m thinking have a I done enough? It feels like a big mistake Just to sit around and wait But I don’t know, I don’t know how long it takes I want to save you so badly Oh please death won’t you take me instead I offer myself to you

Boss 02:39
Hey boss, what do you want me to do I’ve done everything you wanted me to I’m lost, I slaved away the way you taught My hands are clean, but my knees are not I’m being used, but I like it I never knew, you’d try to hide it I’m being used, but I like it So what’s the use in trying to fight it Hey boss you brought out all the bad in me We hid out, lived out a fantasy Big talk, did you just notice that I’m young And decide that I’m nothing more than fun I’m being used, but I like it I never knew, you’d try to hide it I’m being used, but I like it So what’s the use in trying to fight The one time I saw you afraid Was in my arms when I called out your name Hey boss what more can I do I’ve done everything you wanted me to

Vampire 02:11
I drained you like a vampire I left you white as a ghost I should burn in the hell fire Cause you’re the one I love most I never locked the door I didn’t throw away the key You did’t have to take anymore Of that shit from me You and I are day and night You light up my life and I drag you down To meet my demons and secrets I’m keeping I don’t hear you screaming, you’re stick around I may be deadly but I won’t let you down You can drain like a vampire Leave me white as a ghost I’ll burn with you through any fire I won’t ever let you

about

Kandle says: “I wanted to give a sassy upbeat delivery as a stark contrast to a song which is otherwise a gloomy autobiographical portrayal of feeling like an unlovable mess. On March 10th of 2020, the day before our social liberties were taken, before going into studio quarantine with only my Producer & Engineers, I had the foresight to grab my fellow musical mystical sisters “The Wiccs” (Louise Burns, Kendel Carson, Debra-Jean Creelman) to sing around one mic as homage to our favorite 60’s girl groups a la the Supremes, the Shangrilas & The Ronettes. This is forever marked as the anthem to the last day of freedom, where we could eat the mic, share a whiskey sour and warm embrace without fear.”

Kandle Vancouver, British Columbia
