about

This Gogolesque, satiric, paranoid fantasy starts with a tranquil domestic scene: I am quietly reading the newspaper in the garden though, it seems, my cat is up to something demented. I ignore it, continue reading the paper. My head reeling and frightened by the bloodthirsty headlines, I look up to see that my cat is now driving an army tank, chewing on a fat cigar with a parrot on her shoulder and heading straight for me. I knew this day would come.

lyrics

Killing for Power
Insecurities on The Rise
I strung a bell on the cat
I heard her growing Fat
She's in Love with Parrots and Tanks and Grenades
and I'm spoiling for a fight

We're sinking the mother ship
Brawling in Paradise
Give us your hairs
your horns
your hooves
Your Bones
your home

Give me your hairs your Bones
Give me your Home

I live where you live
So you can go
You can go wherever you want
You can go wherever you want

Give us yours Hairs
your horns
your bones
Give us your homes
Now I live where you live
so you can go
You can go
Wherever you want

Kings and successors
Living Gods
Elephants in disguise

The Jungle opened up
Like a Book they couldn't read
We swam from second to second to second
Swallowing the sea

Oh I believed everything
Crawling to Paradise
Give your hairs
your horns
your hooves
your bones
your home

Oooh... Face x 4

I live where you live
So you can go
You can go wherever you want
You can go wherever you want

Give us yours Hairs
your horns
your bones
Give us your home
Now I live where you live
so you can go
You can go
you can go

Give us yours Hairs
your horns
your bones
Give us your homes
Now I live where you live
so you can go
You can go

Where
ever you want

OUTRO
Give us hairs
your horns
your hooves

Give us hairs
your horns
your hooves
Your Face
Your Bones
your brains
your spooks
I'm Spoiling for a fight
In Paradise

In Paradise

There is no rush
There is no rush
I'll take you with me

We're sinking the Mother ship
Brawling in Paradise x 4

about

Elyas Khan Berlin, Germany

Brawl In Paradise is Elyas's first solo record following three releases from his NYC based band Nervous Cabaret. Rejecting cultural and artistic nostalgia, Elyas rips apart his music, creating new soundtracks of post-glam, pre-revolutionary, art-rock: styled, not fashioned. Khan fits with musicians who are defined within their own context: artists such as Peter Gabriel, Amanda Palmer or Radiohead. ... more
