Ted Quinn Her Given Mortal Mission is divine. The Unspeakable is Spoken Here! "Daddy greets the peaceful protest with a f****g baseball bat...the cops murder children while they serve and protect..." Leyla Daze gives me hope in this nightmarish age because she hears what's going on in our Dystopian reality and reports it back with humor, wild sounds and an electronic heartbeat. Music of our time because we deserve music now, as much as we ever did. Support people who make music that says something. Favorite track: Once Upon a Time.

Track Name: The Unspeakable World
Let's all talk about
the unspeakable world

The wet ones the wild ones
the strange ones
the defiled ones

the unfreakable girls

Let's all hold in our vision
the unspeakable world

The ether the creatures
the unstringable pearls

The twisted broke spout
of the world that they left
Which is ravaged and savaged
It's take what you get

When the man comes a'knocking
will you sharpen your sabre?
Or bend down on cement ground
And tie your lifeline to his paper

I'm moaning and writhing
For all of us witches
Who are cat called and lowballed
And spit on called bitches

I'm slippin on the border
Of love and despair
I'm hiding in my hovel
It's a nightmare out there

If you still think Daddy
Is structured to save you
You give him permission
To break you enslave you

Daddy's bout money
That's his law and his fact
Daddy meets the peaceful protest
With a fucking baseball bat.

Living my mission
Is causing me pain
"You chose not to work
for material gain"

Nah I didn't choose nothing
I'm fighting to breathe
I'm standing down Nazis
And the shit they believe

The cops murder children
While they serve and protect
And I'm here in this body
Got no choice to defect.

(on the road now.)
Track Name: Becky Poem
There is a place that I can go
Beyond the seven skies
A perfect grade from pale to peach
Where mist drips plunge for miles
Where hummingbirds and spirits, both
Slip between the isles

There is a place that I can go
Beyond the seven skies
And drink in deep how the air tastes then
Before the humans rise

And drink in deep how the air tastes then
Before the humans rise

Soft, horizon, straight as ruled
But bendy, edges, too.
Stark, horizon, giving proof that concepts do not move.
Sphere, horizon, wraps us up with all the others who.

Soft, horizon, giving proof
But bendy, edges, too.


There is a land that I can love
Beyond the seven skies
Where no deep rumbles wake me up
And no steel towers rise

They don't rise.


There is a place that I can go
Beyond the seven skies
And drink in deep how the air tastes then
Before the humans rise

Still, the morning, pen in hand
With coffee in my honey
I know the land that I can go
Was taken then, with money.

With money.
With money.
Track Name: Tean Creem
I'm twirlin to dog slug spit hug slippy clean fantasies
Slime teen wet dream candy scream galaxies
Juicy milk haven don't you wanna stay fresh
Pick apart your neurons is there anything left

Isolate my head and crawl inside my safety zone
Laid like Brian Wilson I don't wanna be alone
Lookin for a man to tell me where to go tomorrow

Gimme gimme gimme all the candies for my sorrow!
Gimme gimme gimme all the candies for my sorrow!
Gimme gimme gimme all the candies for my sorrow!

Oh I don't wanna go there.
I don't wanna go anywhere with you
Yes I do.


I wanted to be me...


Look up from look up from
(My friend the fun fone)
Get out of get out of
A lifestyle all alone

Be one with be one with
Aliveness around me
Get out of get out of
This clean white city

And get on the road
and get on the road
and get on the get on the get on the road now.
Track Name: Once Upon a Time
We were crawling through a thick dank forest
In a dream
And I flowed into the alleyway
Through the screen

We were falling through a wet wet wasteland
In the dark
And we came upon the door to the entrance
A pink mark

In the cave there's a puzzle on the door to the entrance
And we need to unlock
In the cave there's a bracelet its the door to the entrance
And we need to unlock

The riddle fence.


Once upon a time
In a dream

Once upon a time
I went into the castle
In a dream

Once upon a time
I went into the castle
In a dream
And I saw

A crystal bear...


When we’re winding down the melted marble pathway
It’s so far
When we try to touch the limits of the universe
There’s a jar

If we’re turning an electric dream screen
Into rhyme
If we’re sliding through a shifted silver draftway
Into time

In the cave there's a puzzle on the door to the entrance
And we need to unlock
In the cave there’s a bracelet its the door to the entrance
And we need to unlock…

The riddle-fence!


Old gold bracelet
Dancin in the universe
Old gold bracelet
Prancin in the universe

I'm talkin to a wig shop flat top
And his old gold rent
I'm talkin to a big shot scene stop
And his old gold
And his rent


Hey are you ready
For the downfall!
Hey sisters can you hear me
For the downfall!
of everything we know and love.


Beyond the night sky is a day sky
and beyond the day sky is a light
And beyond the light sky is a grey sky
And beyond the grey sky we're alright.


She's the only way
Into the castle.

She's the only way
Into the castle.

She's the only way
Into the castle...

Me alone.
