In the City 04:54
In the city The tribal city Last chance to take your slice if you ever thought you could Depleted karma Bullshit drama Dead-end rides and life has never felt so good In the city Beguiling pity Spent attempts to testify, a name engraved in wood The ancient herding Betrays the girding Of thoughts and dreams and schemes in tomes misunderstood In the city The tribal city Last chance to take your slice if you ever thought you would Depleted karma The bullshit drama Blind-alley rides and life has never felt so good Acting out on a corollary Nothing out of the ordinary... In the city The tribal city Token themes may seem implausible.

Fire Away 03:34
Fire away Don't hesitate There is nothing to think over Got a real chance of coming up roses Got a real chance of coming up roses Now that I call the shots Here's a shot in the dark Look out! We're taking over Still, I'm caught up in the clover Am I merely striking the poses? Is there no real chance of coming up roses?

Skeletal martyr Bejeweled harbinger Result of a life that grew ever harder Your denied wealth is delivered in death You're inconveniently proletariat Unbind your faith from humanity Tie your hopes to eternity Stone walls will hold you Tattered robes will enfold you See outside through your diamond eyes Sky so blue and clouds so white Throngs of truth-seekers and flickering screens Hypnotized and paralyzed by your flashing rings A sword of light pierces the dark The stone rolls aside Reborn Restart

Heaven sent then torn apart Hell-bent to play the part They'll always fall for the written word It takes a genius To outwit convenience Who'll never fall for the written word I'd never change my path To score an autograph Why, I'd never fall for the written word It does not make much sense To offer recompense To those who'll fall for the written word

It seems like a while that I've been beating on these dials The glass has turned to spiderwebs of ice My little finger is broken and the seals have started smoking The bolts are rattling all night I think the needle is coming down There's mud on the glass and blood on the grass The sun is bursting in the sky The arm is shattered with everything that mattered There's no need to say it twice I think the needle is coming down

Shooting pain, shooting star Shot down on on the boulevard Unrepentant descendant Intermittent defendant All that still remains of a showbiz name Falling short going too far An ectomorph in a muscle car Intermittent defendant Unrepentant descendant All that still remains of a showbiz name

For Loren there is no doubt About the ways and the means of the screams and shouts In the end it's just more sound That is not worthwhile to let out loud I've got the curse within But it's not yet close enough to the end I've got the curse within But it's much too soon to let the fun begin

HC's Eyes 04:19
It comes as no surprise after all this time It's still so easy picking out the lies and the fools There's a time to laugh and a time to cry Just don't call it South Central Georgia's blues Clouds are gathering over Walker Street A restless crowd springs to it's feet It's so clear in everyone's mind In hushed whispers they speak of the time When Hard Candy came down from the mountain And tossed the tablets in the court house fountain Without a thought or care And then shrugged off the stares Could you fill the shoes forever after you Had to see the flies crawl on HC's eyes Could you write the book if you had to look At all their heinous crimes and their alibis Clouds are gathering over Walker Street A restless crowd springs to it's feet It's so clear in everyone's mind In hushed whispers they speak of the time When Hard Candy came down from the mountain And tossed the tablets in the court house fountain Without a thought or care And then shrugged off the stares

In single file watch them falling in line As we bandy together In single file watch them fall in behind As we bandy together In single file watch them stepping in time As we bandy together Mile after mile in unified stride In single file watch them falling in line As we bandy together In single file watch them stepping in time With measured steps they walk in line

Sea to shining sea If you can't swim, then go ahead and sink Deep Too deep asleep to dream If you can swim, Is this anything to me?

about

The Glass of Fashion / The Mold of Form

“There’s a tension running through..., a dark embrace of anxiety and moodiness that feels keenly of the moment.” - Guillermo Castro, Immersive Atlanta (immersiveatlanta.com/video-hard-candy-is-this-anything/)

“Challenges the listener at times with its smart harmonies that can sound almost like dissonance….the overall vibe is mesmerizing and nothing short of stunning.” - Elke Nominikat, glamglare (glamglare.com/music/2016/11/26/song-pick-hard-candy-in-the-city/)

"It’s like detached apathy encrypted in the smooth, easy-listening disguise of pure, dragging, lo-fi garage-rock; equipped with hazy vocals, rolling riffs and subtle syncopation." - Mariana Dias, Too Much Love (toomuchlovemag.com/2017/02/hard-candy-true-descenders/)
