The Voyeur 03:58
sit back and relax sensual homage do not make a sound bodies crashing down living in their skin feeling what they feel get into their groove gaze their ballet moves it’s the name of the game trapped to your secret place drowned to your endless lust crave for the gift of touch sit back curtains open wide their way to invite lights fade too soon but they always do morbid urge to gaze cannot look away in a drunken haze you have to obey sit back

I don't care I won't stare if you go cause if you stay there's no way that this will work everyday in every way I make the same old mistakes changing shapes and i will pay hate, faith there's no blood left for you in my heart time to go where flowers grow in the volt everyday in every way I make the same old mistakes changing shapes day by day hate, faith trails of tears brand new fears losing faith everything falls apart or so they say hate, faith
3.
you cannot say that I have never tried you cannot say that I don't feel alive if I don't feel alive then why do I want to die so here I am committing verbal suicide with you you cannot say I haven't given my all you cannot say that I have lost my soul if I have lost my soul then why do I feel forlorn so here I am committing verbal suicide with you happy birthday to you but I can say that you were numb yes I can say I no longer understand my heart breaks no more it can takes so here I am committing verbal suicide with you happy birthday to you shut up

mommy blue catch the moon feeling poor   what to do rising gloom broke in two passers by death arrives flip the coin enter the void now vivid night held you tight wrong or right it's your time now you're gone all alone midday sun goodbye mom flip the coin enter the void now

Dreams 03:45
I wish I could travel back in time so I can change what I did tonight let the blood go down the drain all I hear is the sound of pain afraid to go on afraid to go back all I need is to dress in black chilling thoughts racing through my mind how could I've done what I did tonight murder forgive me I loved her left alone in a basement flat tormented by you tormented by us hate is love hate is life cut your flesh until you died listen to the trumpet's beat now I have to treat my grief clinging on to survive how could I've done what I did tonight murder forgive me I loved her

It comes to this you’re tied to a screen your lipstick fades we quietly embrace it got so deep got so deep I want to bring you down porcelain face I want to make you cry porcelain face I want to cut you up porcelain face I want to destroy your porcelain face I do not want to waste another day I look at you I want to run away it got so deep got so deep I want to bring you down porcelain face I want to make you cry porcelain face I want to cut you up porcelain face I want to destroy your porcelain face

Icarus 02:44
I am trapped in a cage and Ι cannot escape I just can't compete I don't feel complete I can't afford vacation neither medication I don't feel european you want me to disappear everything they said is true I've been a fool for you everything sounds clear feels like the end is near I need to stay awake finish every day I can't stand the heat I want to hear the beat I can't afford vacation neither medication I don't feel european you want me to disappear everything they said is true I've been a fool for you everything sounds clear feels like the end is near

worlds collide ghosts arise signs of life water crime piercing eyes speak your mind plastic smiles darkness light trying to save some time staying up all night working overtime Ι will not fall in line

about

Strawberry Pills release their debut album “Murder To A Beat”.

The album title is inspired by the queen of crime, Agatha Christie. The idea is that right before a live performance Strawberry Pills were poisoned, but by whom? Who of all of their songs protagonists did it…?

“Murder To A Beat” combines elements of fiction, horror, death and romance. Everything is pervaded by darkness, mystery, cynicism and enigma. Massively inspired by various forms of art. From film noir and crime fiction to the art movement of symbolism (Gustave Moreau) and photography. For example “Voyeur”, the opening track of the album, is an ode to Guy Bourdin’s voyeuristic photography while “Porcelain Face” is about an alluring femme fatale.

Sonically, with this album Strawberry Pills aim for a fresh dark sound while paying homage to the ’80’s.

Out on LP and Digital album via Inner Ear.
