I debated which Codeine song to use, the competition was strong. Codeine are often described as Slowcore. Slow songs in Stephen Immerwahr’s (a fitting name- his surname is German for “Always True”) clear voice with vivid images about the small despairs of everyday life and relationships. A long evening alone in the Winter. I imagine a lot of people will hate this and find it dreary, but as far as I’m concerned, it’s anything but.
Lyrics: First a kiss, then a fall Some pale shade takes it all Tangled up in a knot One foot free, one foot caught
Light the stove with a match I just wait, I just think I’m so sad, I can’t stand I can’t stand, I can’t stand
