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 quartet (Amy Pate on Vocals/Guitar :: Anisa Marie on Drums :: Joshua Chévere Cohen on Guitar :: Angelica Santis on Bass) is unrestrained by conventional musical standards. ... more

Track Name: Smilefucker
Wake up! It’s almost show-time! What’s up with that new routine?
Stand up and make a straight line! Drink up! You've made the scene!

Congratulations on your career
The Situation is crystal clear
You’re sitting pretty for all to see
But you fooled us all with your tales so tall and your fake ID got down on your knees so smile…fucker!

Cover up! I see your Private Parts! Heads up! You’ve drawn a crowd!
Shape up! You need some work done. Turn up! Your personality’s loud!

Congratulations, here comes the swarm
The Situation is on your arm
You’re sitting pretty for paparazzi
But you fooled us all with your tales so tall and your fake ID got down on your knees so smile…fucker!

A sometime dancer who married well
Left the king for a kiss and tell
Went from prime time to dealing dope
She hung herself with that velvet rope

Congratulations on your legacy
The Situation’s up to a jury
You’re sitting pretty in your autopsy
And you fooled us all with your tales so tall and that fake ID got down on your knees powder up for the mugshot and show some teeth entertain us please is it D.U.I. or insanity just smile...fucker!
Track Name: Candy Warpop
Candy gives out blow-pops
Strutting west on Tropicana
Licorice whip-smart
She’s a jawbreaker, a sweet-tart
Candy’s got a secret:
She will walk you on the wild side
Pre-op lollipop, alright. – Let’s go!

Candy hearts you for an hour or two
For candy money and candy cigarettes
So if you want to score, she’s gonna need just a little bit more
And the colored girls go… doo doo doo.

Picked up by a major in the air force
He’s a real candy cane freak
Gave her some Mary Janes and a candy necklace
He said “I’m gonna make you a star in the top brass”

Now Candy’s in the air force
She’s a hero, she’s a killer
They don’t ask her, she won’t tell them
Atomic fireballs from her predator drone
Dropping warheads on the kids of Pakistan

Candy hearts you for an hour or two
For candy money and candy cigarettes
So if you want to score, she’s gonna need just a little bit more
And the colored girls go… doo doo doo.
Track Name: Plastic Earth (EP Version)
I’m blinded by these lights, I’ve lost my way
Knee-deep in this landfill, what day is today?
My diet prescriptions, stare at my phone
My soul is synthetic, my body’s silicone

Lost it all in a Ponzi, can’t buy organic
Now it’s hydrogenated--this weather’s so manic

It’s sunset, I’m standing up on the beach
The oil is splashing my hands and feet
My vision of life, is it out of reach?
I’m surfing the channels for reality

Get it on credit, greed then forget it,
Waste not, want not, haves and haves not

Build or destroy build or destroy
Build or destroy build or destroy

Off-balance on this ground, can’t see or say
Is this flight or simulated, real life or play?
Who are you? Your status? Your sex and age?
News leaking, Toms peeping, is this war or game?

It’s nightfall, I’m standing out in the black
Feeling defended or poised to attack
I’m looking at you while I’m turning my back
Leap out in this world or turn into a hack

Get it on credit, greed then forget it,
Waste not, want not, haves and haves not

Build or destroy build or destroy
Build or destroy build or destroy

What have we done?
What have we done?
What have we done?
What have we done?

I’m blinded by these lights, I’ve lost my way
Knee-deep in this landfill, what day is today?
My diet prescriptions, stare at my phone
My soul is synthetic, my body’s silicone
Track Name: Velluto Blu
Is that thing inside of you
The same thing inside of me?
Why does love and hate
Feel like the same thing?

I’m kissing butterflies
With the kiss of death
My choice of lover
Takes away my last breath

Everybody has neon dreams
Everybody's too blind to see
No one is innocent
Everybody's guilty

The trial date is set
February 15th
Our love is six feet under
Buried in concrete

The door is always open
For me to leave
To find a shady tree
Out in the desert heat

Everybody has neon dreams
Everybody's too blind to see
No one is innocent
Everybody's guilty
Track Name: Harrowing of Hell
And though I feel my time is over now,
I still want more than I’m allowed:
To feel the strangeness of belief,
The emptiness of sinking though I’m fast asleep.
Is there a paddle left to row?
Though my request withdrawn, I would like to know
Do demons show upon my face?
Are there lines emblazoned that I can’t erase?
And though I falter every night I still try.

Have my actions left me blind?
I always want more because I want what’s mine.
And though the fires are rushing in,
I feel so cold I cannot begin
To tell you all the things I know
About the angels laughing and the world below
It doesn’t mean that much to me anyway.

I wish that there was some other way
To help all those that I could not save…

Don’t you see the angels know my name?
They circle ‘round my house in the pouring rain.
Oh please, don't let them in!
The fire cannot claim the soul within.
And though she lies upon the floor,
Her hand trying desperately to reach the door,
I cannot help but laugh because I’ve won.
