hilltop Isn't it hard to find a band that can put a full album together? Candy warpop does just that with this release. Make sure you listen to all of each song because some rewards are there as they finish a track.. Favorite track: Plastic Earth.

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: Exterminating Angel
You promised me you were my friend 
While you wrapped me in your spider web
So whisper your cheap words and ruse in my ear
Just take me in your bed and make the world disappear

Won't you take me there?

So humor me, tell me I have you completely
Just kiss me gently while you cut into me deeply
So prey on me just like a lion to a lamb
Your love is the sweetest drug I've ever had

Won't you take me there?

I slip down into your shit
I lose myself in this lie I permit
I slip down into your shit
I lose myself in this lie I permit

It's always this and it's that and it's black and it's gray
I've been scraping my knees for the smile on your face
No, it's never enough, you're just here for the ride
Just waiting for a stranger to help you decide

I slip down into your shit
I lose myself in this lie I permit
I slip down into your shit
I slip down into your shit

I don't care what the people say
No, I don't care what your neighbors say
I don't care what your mother says
I don't care what your preacher says
Cause our love is a heart attack
Our love is a car crash
Our love is like heroin so tie me off with your tournikiss


I kiss your apocalypse
Dark angel you leave me high
Burnt by the sun on scorched wings
Savior-destroyer, the end is nigh.
Track Name: Locusts & Birds
I woke up on the tile floor
Insect carcasses and mildew spores
And it doesn’t matter much to me
My paroxysms are here to stay

|CHORUS|:
I'll be singing with the wolves and charlatans
Disregard the plague tormenting me within
I'll be questioning this world while you sleep
Because the truth is just a lie and words are cheap

I think of you and wish that I was pure
I'd meet you with the locusts and the birds 
Oh, I'll drain my tainted blood into the sea
Watch it stir in with the oil and debris

|CHORUS|

Old cassettes and fuzzy dissonance 
Forgotten memories and pocket lint
Your name it resonates right through my core
And I just wish that I could join you at the door

|CHORUS|

Your words are cheap
Track Name: Godart
You make her feel so dirty like she’s the one that’s a whore
While you are the one pimping god out around the world
Her curiosity’s a sin so you’re teaching her how to kneel
The devil’s riding shotgun while god’s asleep at the wheel

|CHORUS|:
I’ll be laughing with the sinners
While you’re crying with the saints
The afterlife is in dreams
And all we live for is today


You call yourself holy then you wash your hands with blood
Inquisition sadism burning all the heretics
You’re playing high and mighty while you’re hanging on a plastic cross
The woman at the well was forgiven by your jesus

|CHORUS|

Burn Burn Burn It Down
Burn Burn Burn It Down
Burn Burn Burn It Down
Burn Burn Burn It Down

|CHORUS|
Track Name: Transcendence (Inhale/Exhale)
Let's watch the sunset upside-down
Lead the way, just far enough from town
Drink the tea, go ahead, hog the juice
Let go, own this moment, untie your noose

Climbing up this trail will admonish your fears
Footing, foundations, denials disappear
Reconcile with inhibitions, failure and lies
Dead in real life, alive in the meantime

Follow me to watch the sunset upside down
Blue light in your eyes builds our sound
Inhale, exhale, our silence is loud
Banish the ego and revel in the ground

Overtaken, immersed, breath for the both of us
My skin becomes one with copper dust
Thoughts fleeting, filling the canyon below
Secrets cellophane sage and curious crows will only know

Trust in transcendence, have faith in the trees
Listen to the air, then listen to me
When I choose to sleep, head facing the sea
Please kiss me in my last dream

Climbing up this trail will admonish your fears
Footing, foundations, denials disappear
Reconcile with inhibitions, failure and lies
Dead in real life, alive in the meantime
Dead in real life, alive in the meantime
Track Name: Residue of Change
I’ve been seeking for fulfillment
By some external source
A diversional past time
An interruption of some sort

Something fleeting and passionate
That I can hold onto
A lapse in time
Just enough to unwind

Won’t you dance with me?
To the disharmony
The chaos and the clamor of our lives
Won’t you dance with me?
To the cacophony

Unified, rejoice in our demise

Drink my blood my roguish one
Appease dark tendencies
The world’s a stage in which we
Satisfy strange fantasies
Crestfallen, the bitter taste, the reside of change
Bereft I’m left to phosphorescence in this age

Won’t you dance with me?
To the disharmony
The chaos and the clamor of our lives
Won’t you dance with me?
To the cacophony

Unified, rejoice in our demise
Track Name: Darjeeling Darling
Darling,
Your lips are fire
Citrus and sour
Fulfill my desires
 
Baby,
You heal my cancer
Sugar and chaos
Dare-devil dancer

Let’s stay up all night
Dandelion honey
Let’s lose track of time
My Darjeeling darling

Lovely,
Sinful and charming
Sapphire acid
We’re drifting, moon trippin’

Dreamer,
You strike my fancy
Lipstick and cherries
You fill up my empty
 
Let’s stay up all night
Dandelion honey
Let’s lose track of time
My Darjeeling darling 
Track Name: Plastic Earth
PLASTIC EARTH

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 
Get it on credit greed then forget it waste not want not haves and haves not 
Build destroy build or destroy build destroy build or destroy

Off-balance on this ground can’t see or say
Is this life 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 
Get it on credit greed then forget it waste not want not haves and haves not 
Build destroy build or destroy build destroy build or destroy 
What have we done?
Track Name: Trigger
Let's get one thing straight for a moment
Let's corral the possibilities 
See that hole spinning in the chamber? 
Hope to god it's not for me  

They give us some then they take it away 
They're in control and we got no say 
A gateway drug to something harder 
You'll be my baby and I'll be your triggerhugger. 

I've got some--whatcha got for me? 

It's New Years Eve and aren't you scared?
Sweet little bullets that we can share 
So whisper words to me soft and sweet 
There's nothing left and there ain’t no retreat 

Shoot it in and I'll turn it out 
We're gonna burn and there ain't no doubt
No salvation flames 'round the border
Pull my trigger and I'll be your triggerfucker. 

I've got some--whatcha got for me?

Let's get one thing straight for a moment 
Let's corral the possibilities 
See that hole spinning in the chamber?
Hope to god it's not for me

You see it's not my fault I was only playing
It's just our luck now our time is ending
We could be wrong but who are we kidding?
If you shoot first makes no difference to me.
Track Name: Severe Weather Warning
The creatures have all sought refuge
As the storm clouds consume the sky
I can feel a sting on the currents
I can feel it from the hillside

This is our atomic winter
Our days of reckoning have finally come
This is the result of our labors
Our beautiful world destroyed and blackened

Toxic rain cuts through the crimson haze
Like a veil over our modern wasteland
I wander through this carnage seeking salvation
But everything I touch disintegrates in my hands

This is our atomic winter
Our days of reckoning have finally come
This is the result of our labors
Our beautiful world demolished to ashes
