David Bowie

from OK by Hey Karen



i am afflicted by what you have been saying to me
i feel so dumb i didn’t see it coming through
are you sure you’ve never meant any harm to me
when you are slowly killing me right now

all those flashes from your lashes, they are burning my tongue
you can hear all the cracks in thin ice
just to think that all i need is a touch of your warmth
i’m really asking for no more, no less

cuts that mark my fingers used to guide you straight to my heart
but now this map is no use at all
then what more can i say for you to understand
that i desperately need your help

help me get back what i had
help me be someone again
i know it’s up to you

help me crawl out of that cave
scream out loud my own name
help me find the right way

all i see is ruin where once i used to be
yeah i see nothing that would make me stay
i know it’s kinda hard to be the one that’s left out
so i’ve been told by the voice in my head

i can smell the memories pouring out of your open mouth
but something ugly is standing in my way
half the time i am the man you want me to be
the rest is what i try to save of myself

Hey Karen Rotterdam, Netherlands

Hey Karen is an alias for Bartek Urban, who creates electronica, synthpop, and industrial - the stuff that both melts your heart and your brain.
Home recordings and lo-fi aesthetic aren't necessarily a bad thing, since he believes the feeling is more important. A full scope of that feeling can be seen in his audiovisual live shows, which he regularly performs since 2011.
