Kaleidoscope Stone-cold and hog-tied, my mind’s ablaze My gears are grinding, I’ve been gone for days Sun burns deeper across the sky Everywhere I look, you know, it blinds my eyes But then another season comes along I feel the winter breathing tight and strong At any moment I will come undone Another dawn into the setting sun Cold kaleidoscope- And I’ll burn like a match when I hit home Skin- a falling star Make a wish-I’m spinning all alone The sun burns fiercer every day We bought the ticket, now there’s hell to pay I’m on the inside looking out I can see we’re screwed without a shadow of a doubt But then another season comes along I feel the winter breathing tight and strong At any moment I will come undone Another dawn into the setting sun Cold kaleidoscope- And I’ll burn like a match when I hit home Skin- a falling star Make a wish-I’m spinning all alone

The Vanishing Spitting desire In a birdcage of bones Fiddle the lock and Fly away home Swallow the great confusion Leading to my big break No secret long goodbyes This is my great escape Blasted to atoms With a mouthful of gold Gagging religion Spit out your soul Swallow the great confusion Leading to my big break No secret long goodbyes This is my great escape And I can see the light glow Coming through the trees Another transformation The journey to my knees I release the shadows Sleeping in my bed And every hero must go ‘Cause monsters must get fed

Pavlov’s Palace I used to play it all so lightly I could take it on the chin With my head held high You want to play? Now let’s begin I pick my cape up by the corner Hypnotize you with my eyes Wrap you ‘round my finger Try to trap you with my thighs I laid my bets, don’t you know And the winnings, they come and they go Leg up, Tally-ho! First a girl goes on a journey Then a stranger comes to town Now I’m standing in your doorway While you look me up and down And the scene feels so familiar Like the ringing of a bell And we leave the curtains open to the night Now the light burns just like Hell I laid my bets, don’t you know And the winnings, they come and they go Leg up, Tally-ho! Now I’m staring at your pillow (I’ve been here before) Is that where you keep your dreams? (I’ve come back for some more) And we leave the windows open to the night So they hear us when we scream And the scene feels so familiar Like the ringing of a bell And we leave the curtains open to the night Now the light burns just like Hell

Blue into Black I tried to quit you So many times But I can’t find the exit signs Can I squeeze through And make my escape? Now it could be Be my lucky break Blue into black Hold my tongue till I crack I can’t take anymore Lying down I’ve been with you Since I was a child Flying through the nights We were running absolutely wild Now you’re so fancy All the work you done on your face I can’t find who you are You’re too expensive for my taste Blue into black Hold my tongue till I crack I can’t take anymore Lying down I’m on the bridge On the edge, just a twitch Of a hair-trigger drop To the ground I watch the water rise I can’t close my eyes All I see is the Bay I can’t look away Snowblind and whiskey-bled With all of my demons looking to get fed It’s a long hard winter to be hanging around I’m gonna burn a lot of bridges ‘fore I blow this town Here’s what I know I’m gonna let you go One thing I know I’m gonna let you go I’m gonna let you go!!!

Rubicon I’ll make you cry Breakthrough high Flying by Oooooh- fly on by Oooooh- you so high Oooooh- I see your eyes Oooooh- fly on by When the tide comes in, you gotta go When the water breaks, you go with the flow When the fever comes, you gotta blow If you have to ask, you’ll never know I’ll make you cry Breakthrough high Flying by Spinning fishtail, whip it around First the brakes go out, I’m gone to ground And I’m hiding now, lost in the sound First the Rubicon, now I’m bound Oooooh- fly on by Oooooh- you so high Oooooh- I see your eyes Oooooh- fly on by I’ll make you cry Breakthrough high Flying by You’ll never leave a trace Just an empty space Across the Rubicon Gone forever

The Glamour of Evil The glamour of evil It shines so bright It pokes out my eyes With a butcher knife The lure of destruction It burns so hot I long to be Something I’m not After the accident I went outdoors My camisole was laying On the lobby floor Deathbed convergence Won’t convert the dead And a lifetime of confusion Ain’t confusing anymore A lifetime of confusion Ain’t confusing anymore

Sidewinder I caught a glimpse of you, between the cracks I caught a glimpse of you between the white and the black The thing I see between the cracks Is a glowing psychedelic sonic attack Illuminated from your core Sweetly screaming far from shore Take me there- take me to the light Before we disappear into the night Pop it like a firecracker Crack it like a bullwhip Snap it like a sidewinder Don’t give me none of your bullshit Snake it on the blindside Take me for a wild ride Smack it up, smack it up Sssssssidewinder I caught a glimpse of you, whip-thin and white Obsession raging all through every night Sweating hot when there’s no one else around Searching for the sound that can’t be found Illuminated from your core Sweetly screaming far from shore Take me there- take me to the light Before we disappear into the night Pop it like a firecracker Crack it like a bullwhip Snap it like a sidewinder Don’t give me none of your bullshit Snake it on the blindside Take me for a wild ride Smack it up, smack it up! Oooooh I love you- you’re so tough Yeah, you’re so tough So very tough I cannot get enough

Wake up and Burn I lay there soaking in your treason And you drowned me without a word Every sin will have its season And every season has its turn It’s coming winter with the dawning And I have mourned the harvest moon I can hear the rooster crowing Calling “Wake up- wake up and burn!” I hope I never see your eyes again Without two quarters on the lids You will never see me cry again And I will never let you win It’s coming lighter with the dawning And I know where you slept last night I’ve got a match and kerosene calling And I know how to put things right I see the dawn over the mountain And all the embers burning down Everyone they saw the flames They heard your shouts all over town And see how no one came to help you Cause everyone knew what you done They heard you laughin’ drinkin’ whiskey Braggin’ that you had your fun I hope you know that I ain’t sorry I lived to put you in your grave I sent you right where you belong And now the devil knows your name I know I’ll never see your eyes again Without two quarters on the lids You will never see me cry again And I will never let you win The devil knows your name

about

Kaleidoscope is a cold look at the human condition and what it feels like to be utterly entangled in it's tentacles.

about

Dizzy Twin San Francisco, California

Dizzy Twin is a project created in San Francisco by UK transplant Paul Simmans (Gone to Ground) and freak-about-town Mia d’Bruzzi (Frightwig, Mudwimin, Gone to Ground, Mama Mia d’Bruzzi). The music splashes through saucy guitar cabaret fiascos, circus tales, and murder revenge ballads. Listen for mature themes with a fearless grin and a knowing wink. A naughty pleasure, but not a guilty one- ... more
