about

Everything Shook’s new single Stand Ajar is from their upcoming EP. The song uses electronic synth lines, haunting layered vocals and a driving bass line. The lyrics have undertones of desire and violence and are inspired by the poetry of Sylvia Plath and Emily Dickinson.

lyrics

‘Won’t you pull on me
Won’t you tear off me
Rip my tongue fill me up, fill me up ’til I’m done

Beware, beware out of the ash I’ll rise with my red hair and I’ll eat you like air. Eat you like air.

Beware, beware out of the ash I’ll rise with my brown hair and I’ll eat you like air. Eat you like air.

And I’ll eat you like, and I’ll eat you like.

Won’t you pull on me
Won’t you tear off me
Rip my tongue fill me up, fill me up ’til I’m done

’Til I’m done. ’Til I’m done . . .
I’ll eat you like air.
Done, done, done, done.

Beware, beware out of the ash I’ll rise with my brown hair and I’ll eat you like air.
Eat you like air.

The soul should always stand ajar. Should always stand ajar.
The soul should always stand ajar. Should always stand ajar.’
