lyrics

Sister lend me your alms
I'm a pauper with a prince's charms
I'm the fingers of Our Father's arms
In the long night
The rhythmic morphology
A clinical oncology
I'll metastasize they'll cut at the knee
You'll be alright
You'll survive
Be survived

Rosewater-scented cloth
Your rosary your mother's cross
Your cleanliness is close to a godliness
Wash your hands the Abbess demands you fresh

This village is an acrid cloud
Issuing acid 'pon the painted shroud
It burns the lacquer off of what is allowed
It's a sad sight
So send for the cut flowers
That buff the room in their final hours
We'll fill the urns with their burnt embers
Bone-dry and pulverized

Rosewater-scented cloth
Your rosary your mother's cross
Your cleanliness is close to a godliness
Don't wash your hands I want you to spread my mess

I make you all that you are
You're a vagrant in my home
And I'm the hearthstone
All rise and sing the lines
Tell your neighbour that you love the very sight of him

I make you all that you are
You're a vagrant in my home
And I'm the hearthstone
All rise and sing the lines
Tell your neighbour that you love the very sight of him

Tell your neighbour that you love him
Tell your neighbour that you love him
Tell your neighbour that there's nothing behind your eyes

Tell your neighbour that you love him
Tell your neighbour that you love him
Tell your neighbour that there's nothing to compromise

I make you all that you are
You're a vagrant in my home
And I'm the hearthstone
All rise and sing the lines
Tell your neighbour that there's nothing to compromise

about

Aversions Vancouver, British Columbia

A quixotic mix of American post-punk and '80s post-hardcore, Aversions are eastvan work-a-days trying to live the axiom of art interlacing life. Muscular riffing, left-turn basslines and sledgehammer drumming provide the substrate for vocalist Sam Coll's acidic takes on topics big and small. ... more
