Carbon Black 03:04
VERSE 1: Wouldn’t it be perfect If we froze time? Our quantum death Moment refine You’re my genesis to revelation Calculate Our apocalypse We’ll decimate Our souls remixed Eternally reacting ’til we cease to exist VERSE 2: Out from the blackness Reverse big bang You were heartless Without a name Star born lovers From dust we came Out of phase Divine descent We can just erase Our worlds augment Subatomic remains We’ll fade without a trace CHORUS: Collapse Implode Relapse Corrode Carbon black we will burn From nothing we return (sample) Why should I live in history huh? I don’t want to know anything anymore. This is a world where nothing is solved. Someone once told me ‘time is a flat circle, everything we’ve ever done or will do, we’re gonna do over and over and over again.
VERSE 1: I want to relate Try to excavate You red and you raw Through metal and bone To see what’s inside My Jekyll and Hyde To find me a heart I’ll keep it alive CHORUS: Crush our Embers Bleed into me Bound forever Make my concrete heart VERSE 2: So come on with me Through violence supreme Through fire and the smoke Creation provoke Mix blood with my ash Your skin laced with sand Through sickness and health Organically dealt You’ll drown in the coal Forever we’re whole Our fossilised love It’s taking control Our ceaseless embrace Affection encased 'Til ruin and silence Falling in grace BRIDGE: This vow solidify Our limitless Our never-ending bond These charcoal chains inside Will never be apart
VERSE 1: Messed up generally Insane definitely Higher chemically Broken medically Backward socially Shallow mentally Debauched openly Reckless totally Turn it up CHORUS: Out of line By design Not going back We’re on the attack Devour famously Corrupt openly Modern tragedy We ain’t nobody Not a basic bitch BRIDGE: Oh hey let’s play You think you’re ready for war We’ll keep it real for sure Just fight keep tight We’re on the hunt for sound Light up get down CHORUS: Out of line By design Not going back We’re on the attack OUTRO: Turn up get down So let’s get loud We’re on the attack
Verse 1 Don’t wanna wake up alone Going to the club Breaking my own unease Come home with me You’re my temporary plan B Don’t want autonomy Only feel alive With you beside my side That’s right I’m T H I R S T Y Verse 2 Let’s tangle ’til we forget That we’re strangers planning on regret Our lives reset Taking 'til I pass out Cast desire into me Can’t tie my down Infinitely free Won’t compromise So T H I R S T Y Middle 8 I don’t wanna go home You can’t make me go Don’t wanna go home I don’t wanna go I don’t wanna go home You can’t make me go Don’t wanna go home I don’t wanna go home ‘coz I’m thirsty


Amelia Arsenic is a visual artist and fashion designer originally from Sydney but now based in London. Having toured extensively throughout Europe and the USA since 2007 as a musician and DJ, Amelia now presents her solo project; a singular vision of broken and beautiful sounds and personal yet playful lyrics.

The sounds of Amelia Arsenic are an infectious injection of high-energy beats infused with feminine allure. Her debut EP "Carbon Black" is a genesis of fresh electronic sounds drawing from hip hop, electro and industrial music. Switching between melodic and spoken vocals, the lyrical themes go from party-mode to provocative pathos effortlessly, painting a self-portrait within an underground zeitgeist.

A cataclysmic big bang of music and style, Amelia Arsenic comes out from the blackness with harsh beats for dark times.
