about

Candy Warpop Las Vegas, Nevada

Candy Warpop is a nihilistic storm of art punk and dark psychedelia. Incubated under the debauched neon of Las Vegas, this audacious trio is unrestrained by conventional musical standards.

Track Name: Gravestones
The perfume of burning flowers
Gravestones in the sky
The decay of lost dreams
A crucifix of flies

Destroyer of worlds
Harbinger of the unknown
Prey to the neon gods
Let all mind and body go

Dismiss all earthly passions
To the fire in the sky
Let war replace the hymns
Of mother’s lullabies

There’s nowhere to run
And there’s nowhere to hide
Surrender your identity
And don’t question why

I wander through the ruins
Of our crumbling world
And I want to believe
That there is something more

Future is but fantasy
In our decaying world
A holocaust to cleanse the earth
Of every boy and girl

A cancerous womb for every child
A crib of cement walls
Plastic dreams of treeless nights
Repose for one and all

Ignore all of the shadows
Consuming all we know
Surrender love for hatred
And cast every stone

March to the beat
Of the broken machine
Relinquish your soul
To the bright glowing screen

The only shred of hope
Lies in a dying dream
That there is something more
For you and for me

Where we can all be free
From this broken machine
A dying dream of liberty
Track Name: Gears & Bolts
"I realize that someday I'm going to die, but for right now I'm still alive."

I am gonna show the world
Exactly what I am
I’m a product of my environment
And a crumbling society

I’m alive and I’m angry
And I want to be heard
I want to take back what was stolen
‘cause I’m a product of your broken world
Of your broken world

I refuse to be like everybody else
Heartless and soulless
Just gears and bolts
The people around here will devour your soul
And if you don’t fight back
They will take control

Society is a masquerade
And everyone wants to play the game
So you grab your mask that hangs by the front door
And you put it on like all of the days before

Well I don’t wanna wear a mask
I just want to be free
There’s nothing you can do
To stop me now
I refuse to obey
To blindly follow
Naïve and afraid

I refuse to be like everybody else
Heartless and soulless
Just gears and bolts
The people around here will devour your soul
And if you don’t fight back
They will take control

I look into your eyes
And see that you are dead inside
You’ve become a slave to the screen
A slave to the screen
I’ve got to get out of
This phony land of make believe

This vile place isn’t meant for me
Can’t go nowhere without a fight
Can’t even walk down the street
Without shadows lurking over me

I’m alive and I’m disgusted
By the brain-washed neon lies
Pray to the wasteland
And close your eyes
Track Name: Cheap Salami
Where’s the self-empowerment
In being a piece of meat?
The price tag in the window
Says you’re really cheap

They’re hungry and they’re drooling
And everybody wants a slice
They’ll eat you up ‘till nothings left
Then disappear into the night

You say you’re liberated
But I see through your disguise
You’re exposed and alone
In front of all the staring eyes

Sometimes you feel exploited
And you relapse to a child
And when no one is around
You just feel used up and defiled

When will you realize
You’re doing it to yourself
You only want the hurt
You won’t accept the help

Your pain is self-inflicted
You love the agony
It’s all you’ve ever known
To be a slab of cheap salami

Where’s the self-empowerment
In being worth a dime?
These hungry wolves don’t care about
The contents of your mind

They’ll never see you for the beauties
Of the pains that you’ve endured
Or the poems you used to write
But you don’t write them anymore
Track Name: Maleficium
In a forgotten cemetery
Below an unmarked grave
Lies the soul of Mary
Who was burned at the stake

Her and her child met the flames of demise
The land was in plague
There was no compromise
Someone had to pay

Judaist lepers
Black magic wielders
Moon-howling wolves
And accursed wax figures

Maleficium

She pried open nailed eyes
Awake on the other side
That storm-raising priestess
Is back for our hides

You were unjustly accused
Tortured and abused
Deemed a heretic

Goddess of the underworld
Queen of the night
She’s waiting at the cross-roads
To show us her might

Night-flying female
The Sabbath is coming
She’s back from the grave
And the insects are swarming

With tears in her eyes
She accepts her demise
Scapegoat to the lies

Have mercy, ‘o wrathful witch
For you were once innocent
But now revenge has consumed your soul

She claimed to hear voices
Of sprits and saints
But darkness and shadow
Are all that remain

She wanders the Earth
In the shadow of God
Traded her soul
For eternal unresolve

Traded her soul

She sought retribution
For her souls pollution
Overtaken by madness
And false persecution

Justice will come
To the wicked and wrong
But faith must prevail

Justice will come
To the wicked and wrong
But faith must prevail
Track Name: Hate
He hurt me so I hurt you
They hurt me so I hurt them

I don’t care about this world
World never cared for me
Gimme gimme it’s not fair
I want more
Me me me

She gets more attention than me
There’s none left for me

I’m all alone
I am ugly
I hate everything
No one loves me
I don’t care about this world
World never cared for me

He’s got more money than me
He’s got more power than me

Gimme gimme it’s not fair
I want more
Me me me
I don’t care about this world
World never cared for me
Track Name: autopilot.wav
Power grids and satellites
Holograms in my eyes
Circuit board anatomy
Autopilot sensory

Digital world is not for me
Illusion of reality
Can’t you see we’re losing our souls?

Computer chip is in my brain
Life is just a video game
Radio-active molecules
In cyber space I make all the rules

We’re losing our humanity
To cold steel and technology
Have we gone too far?

Chemical dreams of a dying world
Watch the nuclear chaos unfurl
From the safety of your telephone
Hypnotized by the cosmic glow

Fading creativity
To convenience and accessibility
I can’t breathe in this cancerous world
Track Name: Fairydust & Razor Blades
Fairydust and razorblades
No one cares anyway
Words they have no meaning here
They want to expose your every fear

They want you up against a wall
They want to watch you crawl

Firing squads and guillotines
We’re all gears in the war machine
We’ll punish the very thieves we deprive
We’ll corrupt the young and innocent minds

We’ll send all of the boys off to war
We’ll turn the girls into whores

Macdonald’s and Disneyland
I’m so happy to be an American
Atomic weapons and GMOs
Plastic world where nothing grows

It’s the land of the free and the home of the brave

I am a slave
Track Name: Imaginary Lines
You’re on the other side
Of the walls that divide
And everybody feels the same
Always looking for someone to blame

Imaginary lines
You’re on the other side
Imaginary lines that divide

Outlander, you are much different than me
Your culture and religion are as strange as can be
You are on the other side

You are an outsider looking in
I can tell by the color of your skin
That I am a barbarian
Your way of life is alien to me

Imaginary lines
You’re on the other side
Imaginary lines that divide

I must reject what I can’t understand
Your people speak in tongues and you are of a foreign land
You are on the other side
Track Name: Hard City
Live to serve and sever your worth
It’s a hard city to love

Live to serve and sever your worth
It’s a hard city to love

Pray to the neon cross
Pray to the LED order

Prey on the weak
Prey on the lost
It’s a hard city trying to keep what’s yours

Prey on the weak
Prey on the lost
It’s a hard city trying to keep what’s yours

Dollars and days
Spent in a haze
There’s no escape

Dollars and days
Spent in a haze
There’s no escape
It’s a hard city to love

Pray to the neon cross
Pray to the LED order

Prey on the weak
Prey on the lost
It’s a hard city trying to keep what’s yours

Prey on the weak
Prey on the lost
It’s a hard city trying to keep what’s yours

Below plutonium clouds
19 hundred 19 feet above the sea
Chattering TV screens
Blinding society

Trade your old tired soul
For that 24 karat glow
Let the capital ‘T’ envelope you

Let the screen take hold
Let the screen take hold

And fear the rain
The acid rain
Taste of the grave
The neon grave
Fear the rain
The acid rain
Look away
Look away

Shadows outlined
Glowing inside
Bright from the heart
No distance apart

Beat of the devil
Black from the start

Cling to the aura
Escaping your soul
Overlord whore
Emblazoned in gold

Atop neon skyscrapers
Burned down into stone

Screw their land
Shut up and learn something
In this surveillance state
Blood isn’t immortal

Everything has a record
Every wince, nod, and grin

The screen can read your mind
One flash, and it’s in
Look up to the screen
Smile in the sun

Omnipotent one
United screens as one

Neon order has begun
Neon order has begun
Neon order has begun
Neon order has begun

Dream soul will wander
Harness your dreams
Keep the light close
By closing your mind

Preserve your worth
Discard mother Earth

Unplug yourself from the circuitry

Awaken yourself from this lucid dream
Remove your chains and open your mind

Or our Earth will surely die
If we can’t question the lies

The neon web of lies
The neon web of lies
The neon web of lies
The neon web of lies
Track Name: Material Confusion
I try to separate
From the material world
It doesn’t matter anyway

Forget about
Your troubles for now

I try to meditate
Ignore the guns and sirens
That cry all through the night

But I can’t quiet
My noisy brain

I know only my senses
See, hear, smell, taste, touch
Tangible stimuli
Who am I?

Simulated dreams
Of questions that have answers
A simpler point of view

A path laid out
Before me

Time is not linear
There’s no beginning or end
Nothing ever dies
If it once existed

My world is flesh and concrete
It’s all I know
Whatever lies on the other side
I’ll be there soon

I hope to see you in a distant life
I hope to see you in the afterlife
