about

The Devil is merely the name we give to all the things that we contain, but wish we didn't.

LYRICS:

Ooh and after dark
Ooh the inquisition stars
(I dreamed a fire pit and a funeral last I slept)

The devil the devil is in my kitchen again
and I never know never know what to say to him
I put the kettle on and yawn and yawn and wait

He always makes his nightly rounds
and I know I know to expect him now /
He comes around at half past one
every night since I was young
I put the kettle on, it's on, it's on, I wait

And my mother always wondering why I'm up so late...

So if the kitchen light's on late tonight,
Don't mind me, I've got company again

Skip the song and dance, I know the drill
My thoughts go where they always will
I visit the crossroads every night
And I hold on tight, and I hold on tight

Because the calendar stutters and oh the weather portends
'Cause there's a crack in the wall between all our means and our ends
Because the kitchen light hums and the kettle says
Amen, amen, amen

(Amen, amen, amen)

Oh if the kitchen light's on late tonight,
Don't bother, don't bother
I got company again, but I'll eventually turn in...
Oh if the kitchen light's on late tonight
Don't mind me

Ooh and when the lights go out

I came up lucky to lucky without scars so I made some
Took a blade to a blade to all the parts that I hate some
Gave it up long ago, but at night
Still I hold on tight, still I hold on tight

'Cause the stuff I cut off shares a table with me
From a quarter to one until a quarter past three
Like to settle some score, but we've done this before
And I don't barter anymore


​You cannot intimidate me
Fear is my old friend
​We dated for awhile
And she still calls me now and then
​I've gone all the way with Fear and back,
You don't know what I've seen
And without her on your side,
You cannot turn me against me again

Oh if the kitchen light's on late tonight,
Don't bother, don't bother
I got company all right, but I know,
I'll hold on tight, I'll hold on tight
I / I / I don't barter, I don't barter
I'll heat the kettle one more time and I'll be fine.

about

Marian Call Alaska

Marian Call loves making music for you. She sounds a little like Joni Mitchell meets They Might Be Giants & Regina Spektor for bourbon & laughs. She hails from Alaska but can often be found touring North America and Europe, and she lives on Twitter. Her songs are quirky, geeky, eclectic acoustic confections that taste like vanilla-cinnamon-chipotle something. ... more
