Honey 05:18
These things I do for money Don’t know what I might have done If all the bees with all their honey Weren’t busy smoking in their hive Lead me to the auto-da-fé I am eager for the burn I found you, I found out. I found out I found out. For all the bees that make that honey Perfume their wings with burning pine I need a window to let all the air in, air in, air in Air fill my lungs til I’ve got something to say. Love is a bind And a kindness And your hands Burn steady. And I’m at peace. Can’t lose your grip With your fears rising to the light. I believe I believe I believe I believe

Exorcism 04:59
Let me lock the door. Tie each other to the chair Anoint ourselves with holy oil. Breath the heavy, incensed air Somewhere there beneath the skin Our new selves stirring, fresh and raw Waiting for our flesh to fall And a new world to begin. My love is sharpening its teeth and nails My love is training for the fight My love is hungry to devour The senseless beauty of this night. Waiting Waiting Waiting There’s no room for mermaids here No maiden fair, no rescues made We tie each other to the chair Our new selves stirring, unafraid. In this room a world is born. An old world dies. We do not mourn The night is long and full of sighs that groan from heavy burdens borne No longer. Let me lock the door. Tie each other to the chair Anoint ourselves with holy oil. Breath the heavy, incensed air Waiting Waiting Waiting

Weverton 05:08
We camped that night under a dead tree Whose limbs had been lost in some other storm We knew about wind, and falling trees But we would not know about this. We camped that night under a dead tree Near the edges of a cliff and the grave Of a dead dog once beloved now asleep beneath the dirt Here we lie clinging to this earth Here we lie unshaken from it Here we lie clinging to this earth Here we lie unshaken We knew about wind and falling trees But we would not know about this Winds snuffed the daylight like a candle And night fell suddenly There was no rain. There was no storm as I had known them. All was black and the wind turned wild. Fist of earth choke the air with a fine grit I press my face into the warmth of your neck Cover my face with your shirt And breath through you Here we lie, clinging to this earth. Here we lie, unshaken from it We try our phones but have no bars We must have in our slumber Laid down upon the train tracks I can hear the engines charging down the valley I can hear Diana’s hounds calling out for blood I have brought you here and I must be punished I could die of guilt And I am ready to die because you are here beside me. I lie on my back and cling to you and the earth We are a lone point of warmth in the cold, cold night The night is a beast racing round The black is a void full of sounds that define fury We are one beating heart and one baited breath I lie on my back and cling to you and the earth. And I wait for the punishment that surely must come After the gods have revealed themselves? Here we are Here we are Here we are here we are Here we are here we are here we are Unshaken. Unshaken.

You see a struggle Like so many others And peace will come when you work long enough And peace will let you down Cause you’ve earned more than they have And you deserve it all Your heart is a battle Each day that unravels Says peace will come if you try hard enough But peace cannot be found I hope it’s through I hope someday Faith in a motive The rewards prophets wrote of Peace will come when you are hard enough And peace will grind you down. I hope it’s true I hope and pray Cause I don’t see the method And madness all around I hope it’s true I hope and pray

Intention 04:45
Come with me to the river Lower yourself on the ledge Cast away your intentions See what they find in the dredge. I’ve been a siren out calling Lovers on out to their deaths Now I hear the music that’s pulling Life from the babies’ first breaths. They are growing in the distance with a thousand hungry eyes They are frantic in their playtime, they are eager for the prize Hide and seeking in the schoolyards, playing house inside each home The babes are flooding reckless down the spillways in a rush of blood and foam Take yourself to the river See what there is to be seen I was a siren out calling Now I’m dragged by a simple machine. Hope for the perilous future Hope for the stars to align I feel the parallels shifting Under the weight of the crime And the tyrant in his parasitic opulence is sure That the rustling in the bushes is a false provocateur All the pundits nod their faces, taking solace in the truth That the strong will always triumph and that steady wisdom always conquers youth I had the best of intention I had the purest of goals Pray for me down by the river Scatter my bones on the coals Come with me to the river Lower yourself on the ledge Cast away your intentions See what they find in the dredge

Evolution 04:58
For weeks we have run with our soles worn thin And we've burned all the wood we had saved Now we drink from the ground like we're animals And it's over And it's over And it's over I once wore a suit to a cubicle Now I scratch at leaves underfoot Revealing the elegant circuitry That’s rusting it's memory to earth And it's over And it's over And it's over And it's over And it's over Did we wish for this sudden apocalypse Where the trees grip their memory and quake While I’m losing my sense of the time before This evolution. This turn of the wheel. And it's over And it's over And it's over And it's over

Relinquish 07:33
To the house that we were told of Up the mountain to the ridge On the road a river flowing From the rains that flood the town All is wet and night is looming And our resting place uncertain And our resting place eluding Every step our legs are burning And the mud is ankle deep Every breath is taut with worry And our minds are fixed on sleep Are we stuck out in this jungle? Will we be caught out in the darkness Can we outpace this darkness? Relinquish. All is danger. Let it wash over. All is love. Through the leaves the light turns sideways Before it slides into the west And my headlamps green with acid Where the power cells have burst You hand me yours and all is light Taking turns in the light We take turns in the dark Days later on mototaxis We fly down the mountain Our drivers driving Here we are flying Trusting the hand on the gas Relinquish. All is danger. Let it wash over. All is love.

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.
