Intervention 04:21
Have you seen them burning books out in the yard strategizing secretly the changing of the guard and most have come to gather just to see the spark of revolution there's no rules where we're going there's no rules where we were but that don't mean the dogs won't eat your body when you fall so let me make one thing quite clear in case you missed it we cannot fall in this land when we fall we fall together run run run Do you need a hero or do you need do you need a hero or do you need do you need a hero or do you need an intervention? I will not entertain this we will not entertain this If you need a hero, baby I'm not her If you need a villain, I'm glad to bring the war I'm done with understanding my standing days are done get down on the floor with me the battles' lost and won run run run do you need a hero do you need do you need a hero or do you need do you need a hero or do you need an intervention beware beware these fires in the dark beware beware this spark do you need a hero do you need do you need a hero or do you need do you need a hero or do you need an intervention

Cleanliness 05:00
Do you know the neighbors down the road? Do you know what they are doing? Do you know the neighbors down the road? Do you know what they are? They have friends in high places They have friends So who do you think you are? Who do you think you are? They know what they are doing They know what they are doing Clean distribution of pain Cleanliness Cleanliness Playing games with other people's faces Godliness Godliness Do you know the neighbors down the road? Do you know what they are doing? Do you know the neighbors down the road? Do you know what they are? Maximizing efficiency Optimizing their distribution Synergizing Synergizing Cleanliness

Red & Black 06:40
Can you feel the waters rising Compelling us downstream We are caught upon the current I can feel it when I close my eyes That pull between us That pull I have raged against the ties that bind us But now I know The lines between us are stitched into our tendons And I can see them clearly now As they grow red red red And its it's all flowing into me That red And it's all flowing out of me That red Inside me is a vacancy that is limitless I am limitless In this darkness, a strength There were those who thought otherwise Their bones do not bother me Their pride doesn't bother me Their sense of victory doesn't bother me In this darkness, a strength I am limitless I have learned the source of kindness I have learned the source of kindness In this darkness, where does one body end and another begin? Can you feel the waters rising? Can you feel, can you feel In this darkness, a strength In this darkness, a strength And it’s all flowing into me And it’s all flowing out And I can see those lines growing red I am limitless I am limitless I am limitless I am I am I am

Ballast 03:27
These stones we dig from the garden Weighted the bellies of ships When they crossed over When those sailors left port Unknowing When land vanished Did they feel like this? I had a memory of a burial And putting my weight into the earth Of chilled, wet stone soldiering through the dark Of an ink black sky and a churning sea You cannot ride out the storm Without swallowing these stones Without Sailing into the wind Without lashing yourself to the helm From ballast to barricade That sinking weight Holding in the hillside Which are you?

Inheritance 08:11
When scripture was written by men Who claimed the memories of god Whose tongues were holy Whose bodies were less so And they spoke with one voice that said The meek will inherit the earth When titans breastfed on oil And manifest destiny Ran spikes of iron through the hearts Of their fellow man And built a world from the engine Of their pulsing valor That sought to mechanize nature Did they ask themselves Is it a promise or a warning? The meek will inherit the earth God pity the meek God pity the meek Turning the other cheek I see ashes I see ashes I see ashes The meek will inherit the earth A promise or a warning A promise or a warning God pity the meek God pity the meek

Shatter 07:23
Floating Suspended There is a place Of balance If you are careful And measure how much to exhale And how much to keep in You can stop sinking You can stop rising As a child I’d practice in the deep end Breathing out and holding in Halfway to the bottom In that space, you are weightless I’d let my arms and legs extend Let my muscles finally go slack But soon my lungs would boil And force me to surface. I am older I breath into your mouth Let my arms and legs extend And wait for my lungs to shatter

about

Luna Honey Washington, D.C.

Luna Honey combines murky bass grooves, unhinged distortion, and haunted vocals for a sound that builds from darkly hypnotic to feverishly unmoored.

Their songs examine what it means to grow older, to let go of guilt, to embrace fear, and to find the balance between safety and a meaningful existence.
