I stand corrected my faith in you is strong again and all the people on this floating piece of wood with nothing all drunk all hungry soon there'll be nobody left or almost nobody the sea water is rising and some of them are sleepless the foam sometimes is pink with blood and after five or six weeks after five or six weeks after five or six weeks we drew sticks and mine fell short you don't understand they'll have me they'll have me whole from skin to bone unless you help me unless you decide to feed us all or at least nobody

Suffering you're floating in the void among thought-waves long destroyed our starry heads are yours dazed and locked again in your horny embrace I find everything there everything that exists I find myself whole again jumping to reach your fists Suffering your eyes are so aware they only flinch sometimes out of care and then you can be seen free of space debris your dark and silent love I find everything there everything that exists I find myself whole again jumping to reach you

I'm looking for a massive hole to stick in my opinions some proof that I will never die some fire and your helpful shame a new experience of pain some face just for me to despise so be there Gingerhead I'll hate you Gingerhead I'll show you the amoeba swimming in my brain we've sung for you eternally in synchronized agony we've worked so hard for your demise your nothing Gingerhead you're nothing Gingerhead you're just an amoeba swimming in my brain

and so i ran off a cliff and landed on my chin and nothing eventful happened for the next few million hours and little drops of blood fertilized the ground and all around me spawned plants and intertwining roots at first it all felt good it all fell into place but then I realized how sick the dirt would make me feel and one day out of boredom I stood upon my feet I went towards my city to tell I was alive but that was so naive the city reeked of sewage I hurt someone it seemed they punched me, held me hostage the mayor and his lawyers the housewives and their sons gathered all around the town square to kill their thirst for fun it's not like they were evil they had god by their side everyday postponing their fateful suicide and they fed off of me with big fat chunks of worry spreading my disease its devastating glory and soon they all fell ill and perished one by one and deathbeds filled the city for many years to come

Hale shines by mistake she doesn't know but she keeps us awake dressed in black Phenobarbital sway plastic bags videotapes down at Heaven's Gate they asphyxiate speeding cars changing lanes a chance to crash and dissolve against the concrete she has given birth to a recycled dearth a liquid crystal alert a chance to crash and dissolve against the concrete

the fish are swimming down understandably I'll bleed for thee I will stain the tarmac with my shame and guilt I'll bring my parents' fault the traffic to a halt magnesia to drown the fish are swimming down there is high pressure on my eyes it seems the goggles were too cheap it seems I'm swimming in the sea the fish are feeding off of me the way the crazy people sing like swarms across my TV screen the way they're keeping me awake the way they mistake love for hate

the best thing that I've ever done with my time was to somehow release it and leave it on you to feel all the stings of a mind that defies everything that surrounds it everything that feels new be it here or Athens or New York will you grab my arms or push me away be it here or any other place where they feed shit to us will you grab my arms or push me away will you stay ten more days around this limbo around this nothingness will you grow some guts to be around these streets will you grow some guts and be my friend again

fields across and mountaintops filled with things to say I see beside my lazy-eyed eternal misery parts within me speak the truth and parts will fall asleep on rocky mattresses and beds covered in shit oh lord thanks for tucking me in bed oh lord thanks for taking my brothers instead and thus in unison we sing in hope we'll find a song to fit our twisted expectations at least this time of year and all the problems will just go no paranoia anymore just fishing from our collective pond oh lord thanks for tucking me in bed oh lord thanks for taking my brothers instead

particles we're particles in the air we're nothing more than scaremongers fading in despair particles modern, urban monks we pretend we're lonely we pretend there's nothing wrong we're miracles mere miracles that's all we're soulless littles schedules little schedules nothing more we will all go down without a sound we all will go down we're animals we're god's little mistakes we will take you down with us no matter what it takes we'll bite the arms that keep reaching for our throats I see that my reflection is so uptight and distressed I can't really tell how we'll get through this bloody mess we're particles particles inside their lungs we will always go down without a sound

the emperor Napoleon sitting in his study one hand around his sweating mouth the other round his tummy while Josephine awaits for him in a bedful of loathing the ground beneath his weary feet looks like a sea of flowers hungry meat-eating beasts ready to devour anything that steps on them, any sign of danger and so he ran out to the garden outside Longwood manor with guards and servants all alarmed by his twisted behaviour and then he knelt down on the grass and reached for the guard's cutlass to fight away the screaming hordes of shadow-looking monsters and then they all surrounded him his porcelain-looking enemies a fight broke out eternally and someone said 'oh shit I think Napoleon is dead' what poison ran through his veins what made the man insane they all pointed at each other while Josephine laughed and cried with tears around her ghostly eyes and arms wide open begging for her husband's touch hungry like the sea

as water drips on my face and wakes me from bad sleep the heat and moisture hurt my bones but I'm awake I am aware aware until there is no awareness left for me to speak of its absence my almighty pillow its strength my numbing guiding light and as my feet all soaked and weary tread upon this scary wreck I find myself a brave explorer searching for what's left to eat I pride myself in being patient in seeing this as an opportunity to free myself from what I've caused my lack of skill and then return in proud applause to tell my story to share its thrills

about

Jef Maarawi’s solo project has now expanded into a five-piece band and the debut «Once Part Of A Whole Ship» will be a pleasant surprise for those who are discovering for the first time the music world behind the weird name Egg Hell.

«Once Part Of A Whole Ship» is an album as varied musically as it is thematically. Romantic folk-rock influences and lyricism encounter elements of psychedelic pop and electronic music. Egg Hell plays with its subject matter symbolically, literally, and most of all humorously, in the darkest and most human of ways. 11 tracks-messages traveling in a bottle on the waves in order to convey the smallness of human existence against the forces of nature and the agony of being stranded on a raft as expressed through the conditional nature of hope.

«Once Part Of A Whole Ship» is released on vinyl, cd and digital album from Inner Ear.
