about

Darkswoon Portland, Oregon

"Fans of austere electronic acts like The Knife, Austra and Eurythmics will find the mechanical precision of their synth leads and drum grooves addicting while followers of blissed-out guitar pop are sure to be delighted with the ambience Cushman invokes with her ethereal vocals and blurry guitar lines.” - Pete Cottell (Willamette Week) ... more

Track Name: Ruin
I'm waiting
for the one that I love
to arrive and gouge out my eyes appropriately

I'm waiting
for the one that I love
to suck the blood from my heart
the marrow from my bones

I'm waiting
for the one that I love
to kill me and I'll die happy and miserably

I'm waiting
for the one that I love
to murder me and send my remains
to my family

Ruin
Ruin

I'm waiting
I'm waiting
Track Name: Bloodstone Eyes
I look down
feel your stare bleed into my skin
I look down because the eyes reveal
what's within and I might freeze again
draw my eyes like a dark curtain

nothing feels like this
shattered Narcissus
as if any part of me
could touch history
each moment forever follows the last
I'm an echo of the past
within in your bloodstone eyes

they tell me how you feel
mine tell what brought me here
bravery or fear
curtain eyes are sheer
Track Name: Phantom Limb
you are my phantom limb

I still feel you
you're still a part of me

when I realize you're not
I feel like an amputee
Track Name: Year One
it keeps raining, isolated in forest park
40 days of dark
sitting on old carpeting
this apartment has no furnishing
step outside the giant spiders
rule the balcony
I listen to the ghosts of this town
examine their misery through song

cutting x's into my skin
I wrestle knives out of your thin hands
throw them off the balcony
to the trees, the land, the coyotes
you held me when I found that she had died
we lay in the darkness
I found a flower on the pavement
I made into forgiveness

Nyquil and alcohol
I put my head through a wall
you smashed yours against the table
broke my phone over my own skull
Track Name: Ten of Swords
silence is the undoing
the seed that sprouts
overgrown in my mind
the foundation for invention
that's metastasized with time

silence is the undoing
delicate and chaotic
I'd rather sleep than do this waiting
the stillness makes me sick

don't leave me hanging on
and wrangling worry
don't leave me sorry
as a fortune telling ruin
as a fortune telling ruin
as a fortune telling ruin

don't leave me with hard lessons
I'm sick of that kind of learning
don't leave me fragmented
on a broken journey
don't leave me hanging on
and wrangling worry
don't leave me sorry
as a fortune telling ruin
as a fortune telling ruin
as a fortune telling ruin
Track Name: Ambiguity
we slept in between
the future and a smoking gun
the bullet keeps traveling
it cannot be outrun

with three doors that stood leading
each to the devil's greeting
the desire I'm fighting or reading
will ignite me or kill me

ambiguity

the walls turned into water
the water turned into blood
there's something happening here
that's cause for a flood

ambiguity
