Cardboard kings and quasi queens
Take out the trash and and buy new screens
Just as it seems
Living on answers, living so fine
Dousing the dancers in red wine
We're doing fine
Lost in the rhythm of perilous time
Facing the doubt of the words which we climb
Every time
Insolent cause, dubious rhyme
Bleeding us out one day at a time
Every time

Lust for your life, lust for your death
Leaving our hopes whispered under your breath
Whispered in death
Strange people live up on the hill
Feeding the wishing well beyond its fill
Future lies still
Deep in the desert runs a clear stream
Flowing into every vagrant's dream
As it may seem
Flying away with a prayer in the wings
Leaving us for the valley of kings
Waiting in the wings


from Supermax, released January 6, 2016

Charlatan Seattle, Washington

Noise and atmosphere smashed into pop. A fission of electronic beats, buzzing synthesizers, and blaring guitars drenched in reverb.
