about

Apis Malifera Seattle, Washington

Created within the honey comb of a small California mountain town, Apis Malifera emerged from the hive and almost immediately migrated to another. And another.
Visiting many flowers and taking memories around with her like pollen; she returned to her original habitat and began to make "honey sweet" tunes out of all her pollen-thoughts.
Now residing in Seattle; she builds her hive song by song.

Track Name: Dandelion
If I was a dandelion
You'd blow me away
If I was a dandelion
You'd blow me away

As it is I am human
You still have me astray
As it is I am human
You still have me astray

What did you expect?
When I fell for you,
I broke in too
many pieces too collect.

If I was a dandelion
You'd blow me away
If I was a dandelion
You'd blow me away

What did you expect?
What did you expect....
Track Name: Underwater
Don't you
Remember
What life was like
Before we went under
When it was all air
Instead of bubbles
In the murky water
Keeping our lungs down.

Don't you recall
Last winter
You were still stuck on fall
And all it's colours
Then the roads became
Black ice snakes
And we re-found the local lake
Down down
Down down

I see your face
Outside my window
I see your hair
Like a chestnut halo
And all I see
Around us is water

Don't you remember?
Going under
Don't you remember?
Forever under

Will they ever find
Her car seat
She will be missed
But not by us
Underwater
Don't you remember
Underwater
Don't you remember?

Underwater.
Track Name: Marigolds
Here we are
In the marigolds
A sickly reminder
Of the old
all under the ground and sleeping
Isn't it time we get down to the dirt?
With our faces made of plastic
and our hearts pieces of junk.

Here we are within the folds
Of a bed spread that's caked with the mold
That grows between conversation
With our mouths
and with our souls

Here we are in the marigolds
A sickly reminder
Of the times
When you'd hold me tight
And lie and say
it'll be alright
Here we are
With the feelings still between us like walls
Here we are
In the marigolds.
Track Name: Roses are Red
Roses are Red
And violets are still blue
Sugar may be sweet,
But it rots your teeth
And I shouldn't date
Jerks like you
Jerks like you

Will you be my blanket?
And keep me warm
Will you be my lightning rod?
And save me from the storms
Will you be my wall?
Will you be my rock?
To keep me from screwing up

You can't be my blanket
Cause you're the cold
And you're the lightning that burns my soul
You can't be my rock
But you could be my wall
So I have something to jump off of

Roses are Red
and Violets are still blue
Sugar may be sweet
But it rots your teeth
And I shouldn't date
Shouldn't Date
Jerks like you.
Track Name: Cave
There's a cave in my pillow
Where your head used to lie
Now you're off chasing ghosts
That'll never say why they died

You're throwing excuses
Like waste paper
The basket being my ear

In your seizures
Yes in your fits
I'd look into your eyes
And see nothing behind them

Now that we're strangers
It's perpetually true
That when I look upon you
I see right through
you
Right through you

There's a cave in my pillow
Where your head used to lie
Now it's the grand canyon
Of goodbye
Of goodbye.
Track Name: Will you still love me when you're dead?
Put your heart in the right compartment
If you don't you will surely stop it
And your blood will lay stagnant
Much as the lake
They will drain
To find your remains

And will you still love me when you're dead?
Will you still love me when you're dead?
Will you still love me when you're dead?
Will you love me when?

And will you stay a bullshit artist
Or will you slay all your demons in this conquest?
If you take me down your hill of Jack and Jill
I will crush you will the force of all my will

And will you still love me when you're dead?
Will you still love me when you're dead?
Will you still love me
Love me when?

You've got more holes than a siv
It's a wonder you've not broken
And will you still love me when you're dead?
Cause you've been shaking for so long
You've been shaking for so long
You've been shaking for so long...
Will you still love me when you're gone?
Track Name: Turn Gray
Cover my mouth
Before my soul comes out
I don't think I can hold my breath no more
Walk away,
with nothing left to say
And I don't think I can hold my breath
Hold my breath no more
No I don't think I can
Hold my breath
No more

If fouls were fancies
I'd be the fanciest girl
In the whole town
County line
county line

You're moving out
But there's no way
Cause there's bits of you in my heart
That'll always stay
You say we'll never part
As you walk away
And those bits that are in my heart
Turn to blades
Turn to blades

Cover my mouth
before my soul comes out
I don't think I can hold my breath no more
Walk away
with nothing left to say
And I don't think I can hold my breath
Hold my breath no more
No I don't think I can
Hold my breath no more

Turn gray
Hit the floor
No I don't think I can
hold my breath no more

Turn gray.
