about

The original instrumental track was created for The Stranger's SPLIFF film festival trailer.

lyrics

These days it's a long way home
I think to myself "is this it?"
Haven't seen your face for days
Haven't felt your touch in ways that
Brought joy once before
Now it's all just gone hardcore
No subtlety anymore
Just people fucking being a bore

Take time
Slow Down
Gonna make yourself crazy
Running around
Chaos, liberty
A heartbreak that can set you free

Too many needs
Too many destinations
Just too many goddamn temptations
I think to myself
Riches can't dissolve me
Judgement can't control me
But here I am
Going nowhere, eating dirt
On a freeway with everybody else
Til I make it home to see you
Til I make it home to feel your touch

Take time
Slow Down
Gonna make yourself crazy
Running around
Chaos, liberty
A heartbreak that can set you free

So let us turn out the lights
And lay our bodies down
And erase the myths we've come to know
And dream again to go slow
Although it feels like the end of the world
It's just starting over again
Why try to find yourself baby
When you can choose to be somebody else

Strangers in a web of cult shock venom
Unwavering youth distressed in their denim
Come lay your head down next to me
Before we're eaten alive by the night crowd
Who drink blood to live forever
Sink bright white teeth deep into leather
2000 years of pain for just
7 seconds of cheap hot pleasure

Take time
Slow Down
Gonna make yourself crazy
Running around
Chaos, liberty
A heartbreak that can set you free

So let us turn out the lights
And lay our bodies down
And erase the myths we've come to know
And dream again to go slow
Although it feels like the end of the world
It's just starting over again
Why try to find yourself baby
When you can choose to be somebody else

So let's turn out the lights
And lay our bodies down
And erase the myths we've come to know
And dream again to go slow
And dream again to go slow

about

Erik Blood Los Angeles, California

Erik Blood creates music that lives in the magic hour. His production is a nuanced secret told only to his co-conspirators (Shabazz Palaces, Moondoggies, THEESatisfaction most notably). After two albums and a film score, Blood is delving further inward, into the dream, and returning with tales and melodies that evoke the warmth between two bodies and the dizziness of love, sex, or other substances ... more
