supersonic-symbiotic Kitten Forever is an amazing band, and with each album they somehow sound even better. It's hard to pick a favorite song on this album as they are all so good, but I'll pick Air Dry because it's so fun to sing along with. Favorite track: Air Dry.

Wesley Meier I had the pleasure of seeing Kitten Forever perform the autumn before "7 Hearts" was released. Immediately I was taken by the distinctive originality of their sound. With "Semi-Permanent" the band is at a fever pitch. The lyrics are all intelligent, clever and delivered with a brilliant force and brattiness. Fun Fact, Chores, Sour Cherries, Big, Hell Hole, Pinky Swear...the WHOLE ALBUM are all standout tracks! Favorite track: Sour Cherries.

Track Name: Fun Fact
we spark together like we’re made of flint
i thought you could take a hint
i tell lies and feel stuck inside
born to die or born to try x 2
-
quit asking me to explain
i wanna be a mystery + feel my pain
-
you are the beautiful baby
you are the false positive
you cry until i care again
you pry until i give in
-
here’s another fun fact about me
i’m the worst i’m the first i’m an enemy
here’s another fun fact about me
go insane can’t complain 1 2 3
-
you are the beautiful baby
you are the false positive
you cry until i care again
you pry until i give in
-
there’s a list
inside of me
that reads like
its from another century
-
quit asking me to explain
i wanna be a mystery + feel my pain
here’s another
here’s another
here’s another
fun fact
Track Name: Chores
shake off your velvet
get dressed in the dark
you can stuff it with flowers
bring the baby to the bar
you can eat up my whole life
but I’ll get caught in your throat
and i will enter a raffle
for winning your idols
-
ooh it’s the eternal intake
you do the chores on weeknights
cuz I've been met with silence
compact and temperless
while you’ve been moving around this whole damn mess
cuz if you know how to starve it then you know how to kill
and if you know how to boss it then you know how to really go
-
shake off your velvet
get dressed in the dark
you can stuff it with flowers
bring the baby to the bar
you can move through my body the loudest
this story is sequined and tacky
a medallion for boring me
-
ooh it’s the eternal intake
you do the chores on weeknights
cuz I've been met with silence
been compact and temperless
while you were moving around this whole damn mess
cuz if you know how to starve it then you know how to kill
and if you know how to boss it then you know how to really go go go go go go go go go
it ain’t so bad when you’re gossiping the bad one!
-
is it a nasty trip or self-protection?
slow to heal or just confusion?
who'll play me in your wall projections?
super cool or no perfection
-
shake out your violets
undress for your art
you can stuff it with velvet
well when can you start?
might be in the same house but they'll stamp your card
just to exist in the backyard
Track Name: The Hawk
you do it cuz you're used to it, don't you?
just cuz you're hesitant doesn't mean you're used to it
collecting all the charms for it doesn't mean it's gonna fit on you
-
your shirts untucked, your mouth is open
in the partial spiral you're so totally grounded
root holy truth from relic skin
and that's deep dirt you're digging in
i can't talk much but I can run
like a mouse in the field with the hawk overhead
-
you do it cuz you're hesitant, don't you?
you break it you're buying it
but you're not gonna sell a frail present, are you?
-
put it, put it, put it, back!
ooh, the hawk
leave me in your daydream
love me like a lightshow
leave it like you're gonna put it, put it, back
-
underground or on a pedestal
the personal is critical
turn around and around
like a mouse in the field with the hawk overhead
-
like the hawk
a perfect dive when I'm on the shallow end
that's deep dirt you're digging in, baby!
Track Name: Sour Cherries
hello hello - they tasted sad
hello hello - i cried in bed
hello hello - “eat the pit!”
hello hello - i stayed home sick
-
used to have so many loves
haven't thought about em in so long
ate them up + washed them out
wasn't worth a single one
-
cut the cake + wake up late
who am i to disintegrate?
call your mom and call your dad
dialtone sings inside my head
-
disconnect to reconnect
disconnect to reconnect
sour cherries never forget
hello hello
-
can't take me anywhere
can't take me anywhere - no one, no more
-
hello hello
-
used to have so many loves
haven't thought about em in so long
ate them up + washed them out
wasn't worth a single one
Track Name: Afterlife 2
low life you’re always putting on a show
i hear you talking on the radio
it hurts until it stops
you crawl until you walk
it is what it is what it is what it is
-
low life / afterlife
disappearing / reappearing
it’s a true connection crossover
true connection crossover
but you don’t even know your own fucking name
-
one of these things is not like the other
sink or swim or don’t even bother
get out of my house get out of my head
get out of my house get out of my bed
it is what it is what it is what it is
-
low life / afterlife
disappearing / reappearing
it’s a true connection crossover
true connection crossover
but you don’t know your own fucking name
-
and you don’t even know your own fucking game
so put your best foot forward best foot forward
if you're tired of loving with nobody to love
-
one of these things is not like the other
true connection crossover
Track Name: Air Dry
eat the bouquet
drunk at the fair
pull me from the charged cemetery ground
cut me from your hair
-
pulling up the trap is like pressing through the cracks
will we ever be the cave to each other's fang?
it's not complicated
-
love to dissolve
to film our friends
cropping out the edge of this particular gift shop transcendence
-
walking down that path is like writing on the cast
will we ever be the cave to each other's fang?
it's not complicated
-
press the seed get flower face
you put it on and you walk away walk away
you wanna be there towards the shine on horizon
but you don’t wanna think of it when you can be here
you can be here
you can be here
you can be here
-
pulling up the trap is like pressing through the cracks
will we ever be the cave to each other's fang?
it's not complicated
-
walking in the trap is like pressing through the cracks
will we ever be the cave to each other's fang?
it's not complicated
Track Name: Hell Hole
poke me with a broken heart

bad time baby, i understand
oh come on, he’s just a man
-
bleed into me, i wanna wanna be your whimper queen
bleed into me
i wanna wanna be your whimper queen
na na na na na
-
things are dark until they’re not
the only way through is out
it gets dark but it won’t last
this is all just in the past
-
bleed into me, i wanna wanna be your whimper queen
bleed into me, i wanna wanna be your whimper queen
na na na na na
-

repeat mantra - “be here now”
seep it in and push it out
-
bleed into me
bleed into me

-
things are dark until they’re not
the only way through is ouuuuuuuut
-

Track Name: No Man's Land
brought you into this world and i can take you out of it
send a smoke signal to your friends on the other side
dark blue sky inside my mind
you’re doing it and you’re doing time
-
one man’s trash is another man’s treasure
what does it mean if it’s not forever
one man’s trash is another man’s treasure
what does it mean if it’s not forever
brick by brick you built it up
brick by brick you built it up
one more person to give a fuck
you built it up
-
move me where i should be
treat me like a mystery
i wish no one was me
i’m so fucked i can’t see
-
build it up, build it up
-
pink or blue tell me what to do
don’t question me, let’s question you
disappeared into a feeling
i cut loose it felt freeing
-
one man’s trash is another man’s treasure
what does it mean if it’s not forever
one man’s trash is another man’s treasure
what does it mean if it’s not forever
brick by brick you built it up
brick by brick you built it up
one more person to give a fuck
you built it up
-
you can’t have a good time with me
am i old or am i shitty
i make up my own mind
you can’t tell me that i’m fine
-
build it up, build it up
-
one man’s trash is another man’s treasure
what does it mean if it’s not forever
one man’s trash is another man’s treasure
what does it mean if it’s not forever
Track Name: Toothache
i can't hear you when you're talking through your teeth
i can't hear you
-
hold me up into the light
i'm not your girl i'm not what's right
a blue eyed baby a dream you had
you want me waiting til the taste goes bad
a popular lover its one or the other
weak knees lazy don't say you love me
passive aggressive but i get the message
you do what you gotta do to be right
-
i can't hear you when you're talking through your teeth
-
its peaceful but it's painful
its two white doves or an angel
you lift your true skin helium human
two twin ghosts in brand new clothes
coming through the wire calling you home
coming through the wire calling you home
did you rock the boat just to put on your coat
and do what you gotta do to survive
-
i can't hear you when you're talking through your teeth
-
i wish that i could but i can't cos i won't
cos i'm your problem now
look at me before you leave
its a bad idea that you pull like weeds
bury the lead pretend to be happy
-
i can't hear you when you're talkin’ you’re talkin’
Track Name: Big
rub my face into the dirt
make sure that it really hurts
never gonna be the 1 1 1 1
always there for fun fun fun fun
never gonna be the 1 1 1 1 1
-
i know i’m a vacant stare
i know you can’t compare
i know i’m a vacant stare
i know that i’m very rare
-
big body
nobody
big mood
big attitude x 2
-
rub my face into the dirt
make sure that it really hurts
never gonna be the 1 1 1 1
always there for fun fun fun fun
never gonna be the 1 1 1 1 1
-
i’ve got all this skin, nothing to do
a big bag that feels like glue
Track Name: Pinky Swear
we look tough we don’t give up
we look for love we like it rough
we bite down big time more than we knew what’s wild in me is what’s wild in you
We’re born again kids with broken drums it’s a race it’s a chase for number one
-
i give you gold
but you’re semi permanent
two steps back you ask
was it worth it
rearrange it all stays the same with the petals pressed against the frame
with the house on fire the house in flames
-
palm to palm thumb to thumb
you pinky swear so don’t play dumb
is it true that i dream of you and you dream about me but if i dream about you
and how to prove how to prove how to prove how to prove how to prove
that it all belongs to you
-
i give you gold
but you’re semi permanent
two steps back you ask
was it worth it
rearrange it all stays the same with the petals pressed against the frame
with the house on fire the house in flames
-
you’re alive
cross your heart and hope to die
its alive its alive its alive its alive
