about

The debut release from Algiers

lyrics

We are all walking in the dark with the scissors in our hand
We are there when you fall apart when there’s no one in your bed
We are all walking in the dark with the scissors in our hand
We are there when you fall apart when there’s no one in your bed

She said, “Please keep your smile away so we can still be friends”
I’m standing single file
While sex melts in my hand
Desiring other things
That other eyes in other rooms desire
They pay her with their diamond rings
Then she has me wait outside
Then they come crawling out

So, how dare you smile so sweet?
[We are there when you’re in the dark when there’s no one in your bed]
And how dare you speak so soft?
[We are there when you fall apart with no one to hold your head]
No, don’t try to undress me
No, nobody else at all
Nobody else at all
Nobody else at all.

about

Algiers

Algiers is a band of musicians born in Atlanta, Georgia, the rotten hub of the Ol’ American South, where W.E.B. Dubois once saw a riot goin’ on, and where the hell and highwater swirls ‘round to the knees.
