about

Suzy Callahan Maryland

"With a punk-flavored art-rock children’s rhyme ... It’s deliberately arbitrary and deeply embellished .... Suzy Callahan is indie rock’s own molecular gastronomist" chillfiltr.com/blog/2018/10/7/suzy-callahan-georgia-okeeffe

"She has painstakingly presupposed the outcome of every electronic overdub, every tonal shift.Like a farrier, she bends sounds to suit her needs" dcmusicdownload.com

Track Name: Holding Pattern
Goin upward
Silvered up bird
Through the trees
Want to weave

Then I fly
Then I fly
In a holding pattern

Going downtown
Speed of sound
Wanna breathe
For you and me

Then I fly
No reply
Then I fly

In a pattern
There’s no reply
In a holding

No reply
Just one more time
Track Name: Let the Moments Come
Where are we going?
Fate won’t decide
Until it’s too late
And we can’t change our minds

How do we make it?
How do we survive?
When we can’t always fake it
Or cover our eyes

Let the moments come and go away

The wheel that I’m holding
Can turn on a dime
And mother nature’s yearning
Competes with father time

Let the moments come and go away
Track Name: Money in My Hand
When I wake up in the morning
I don’t want to get up out of my bed
I don’t wanna wake up
I don’t wanna get up
I just wanna sleep all day instead

But I need money
Yes I need money
Y’all I need money
(I need a lifeboat)
In my hand

When the sun shines
I feel happy
I feel good now
Don’t feel bad
Cuz I don’t like the rain
I don’t like the clouds (sun)
Everybody asks me why you so sad

Cuz I need money
Yes I need money
Y’all I need money
In my hand

I just wanna wake up
See money in my hands
I just want wake up
Money in my hand

I just wanna wake up
See money in my hand
I just wanna wake up
Sweet money in my hands
Track Name: Don't Ask Me
I don’t tell any lies
I keep to myself
So there’s no big surprise
Nothing I need to tell

So don’t who what why where when it
Cuz you might just regret it

Don’t ask me if you don’t wanna know

I could reach into my soul
But there’s not a thing
I can control
With more feeling

So don’t who what why where when it
Cuz you might just regret it

Don’t ask me if you don’t wanna know

It’s gone, it’s gone, it’s over
Now you're somebody else
And nothing can be recovered
By looking underneath rocks
Picking locks
Or opening Pandora’s box

So don’t who what why where when it
Cuz you might just regret it

Don’t ask me unless you wanna know
Don’t ask me unless you wanna know
Don’t ask me I just might lose control
Track Name: Georgia O'Keeffe
Georgia O'Keeffe swallowed a leaf
Hazy as a dream
After an hour, unfolded a flower
Crazy as it seems

It's time that you spit out the pit
and you say what you mean
It's time that you picked out the grit
and vented your spleen

What a relief, Georgia O'Keeffe
didn't make a scene
And when you speak, I can't repeat
It's crazy as it seems

It's time that you spit out the pit
and you say what you mean
It's time that you picked out the grit
and vented your spleen

The Calla lily is roudabout
Say what you mean

It's time that picked out the grit
and vented your spleen

Georgia O'Keeffe
Track Name: Bramble Eating Goats
Bramble eating goats
They just eat the leaves
So I come from behind
And pull out the weeds
From the roots

Apples on the ground
Never taste too good
Bitter and sweet
They're just
Something to eat

Take me back
To the farm
Where I'm safe
In my mother's arms.

I don't need a therapist
I just need a friend
Someone who will listen
From the beginning
To the end

Take me back
To the farm
Where I'm safe
In my mother's arms

Back on the farm
