the lovers’ suicide

2013's "The Lovers' Suicide!" was released in limited editions on 7" by BEKO (France) and CD by Zoom Lens (US). It would later appear on the group's debut full-length, "Heaven", and its frantic guitar work and tortured lyrics signaled a stylistic shift for the band. This was the bbs' first release with drummer Ryan Wansley. 

Recorded in San Francisco, California
Graphic Design by Dana Akashi and Meishi Smile


The Lovers' Suicide based on the short story
“A street singer” by Lafcadio Hearn
Love so estranged originally performed by Rocketship

O the tumult of the lovers’ suicide.
O the Pity of their lives thrown away.

01. The Lovers' Suicide
listen    
 
 

With graying clouds watching over me  
Oh, I cannot, I cannot breathe  
Your pale face behind bars, my heart sinks  
Sold to this house for the use of men  
Oh, your young heart, I wish I could mend  
But instead, I'll pretend, I'll pretend  

So close your eyes, close your eyes  
'Cause in our dreams, in our dreams  
In our dreams  
Lovers' suicide  

With lastsen in pocket I turn to you  
A painted rain dragon, the scent of bamboo  
Sake drips from your lips when you say,  
When you say our love is true  
So where do we go? Where do we go?  
Like a flower, I can't bloom in the snow  
We can't hide, we can't grow  

So close your eyes, close your eyes  
'Cause in our dreams, in our dreams  
In our dreams

02. Love So Estranged 
listen    
 

Let's go for a walk where we can talk about it all and everything 
Even though we've said it all my head is filled with what tomorrow brings 
For you and me 
Just you and me 

And maybe if we make a plan to take some time apart there'll be a change 
So maybe in two years or ten we'll clear the air and not love so estranged 
Just you and me 
Just you and me
