LBB’s music, courtesy of the brilliant Christian Gibbs (aka C. Gibbs), really made this feature a hard one. Too many tracks felt “feature worthy” but a choice had to be made. So… first course: You Got It Blue (from their debut album- ‘Capo My Heart’ And Other Bear Songs’). Main course: Buried In The Ivy. Desert: Percival. Ready for some super talented bears?

You Got It Blue

Music Video

Lyrics

This ghost in my head is asking to be silent

Don’t step on those cracks even ghosts got bones inside them

And one of these tears will one day keep you silent

Through all of these years laughing with the sun behind us

 

You got it blue

You got it blue and there’s no turning you

 

With crippled cries sour drips the faucet

Disguise the noise flushing eyes with empty sockets

Your water lies keep them from discovering

The cigarette speaks, delivering the salty seas on him

 

You got it blue

You got it blue and there’s no turning you

And if I could

 

I’d watch the sun come out and stick in the shade

I’d draw a funny smile to watch you parade

Draw you stick figures

Walk on hot coals to keep you

 

You got it blue

You got it blue and there’s no turning you

And if I could

I’d take the blue right out of you

You got it blue

You got it blue

You got it blue

Lyrics

Cut free, I will never be, her fangs inside of me

Pull me back into her eventides

She feeds through her caked on maybelline

Black roll the tears

Seems another one has caught the knife

Relief, through the chemicals

Let’s cauterize your veins now your sleeve won’t hold another dose

 

So here we are

The minus one

Buried in the Ivy

The good we sought has turned on us

Buried in the Ivy

 

Defeat, too late for caveats

Lets prop the polished zeal and remember now

Who’s side you’re on

 

Yeah, here we are

The minus one

Buried in the Ivy

The good we sought has turned on us

Blame it on a bad seed

Yeah here we are

 

When colliding with the cavalier

It’s the vengeance of the cold found here

 

So here we are

The minus one

Buried in The Ivy

The Good we sought

Delivered Not

Blame it on a bad seed

Her Tears made sharp

A fate unjust

Her daggers falling on me

Here we are

The Minus One

Buried In the Ivy

 

Buried In the Ivy

Buried In The Ivy

Lyrics

The dancing bears stand on their heads

With beige bonnets and colors red

Their pirhouettes a show for all

Their happiness short-lived fought for

 

The mating calls of seasoned trolls

They come from upper middle-class homes

Pretend to be such struggling foes

Bohemia bought and paid for

 

I’m on the cusp of all is well

Broken bones in dried up wells

Thrown in a world of make believe

I never wanted more to be

On the ol’ ship 44

In the hands of Percival

Gonna sink my teeth into the saccharine

 

The gut and glow, the warmth we know

The burning throat when down it goes

The cold remorse of imbeciles

Don’t change their crude and cruel methods

 

Out on the gold sheathed balconies

Ceilings drip with tiffany

Coming to life in front of me

I much prefer the make believe

 

It’s the curse of 44

Oh these moments we live for

Gonna sink my teeth into the saccharine

Where ovations are no more

As their cloaked in curtain calls

Gonna sink my teeth into the saccharine..

And the aftertaste stings

Gonna sink my teeth into the saccharine
