katie and the lichen Vancouver, British Columbia

KATIE AND THE LICHEN
A 5 piece pop-verisimilitudes/sister/pop-verite band.
Playing ukes, and melodicas, guitars and drums, and more, they
focus on the anti-pop-anti-folk aspects of the lo-fi music universe,
this includes crunching class divisions and endorsing and eating feminism.
They are unladylike. They are encouragable, endearing and effing adorable.

Track Name: Piles
all the piles and piles we carry
on our backs that make us strong
are some how piles and piles to carry
when you feel theres something wrong

and i knew that you were
gonna be hard from the start
but i knew that i had to
toughen up this heart

didn't you feel like it was just
JUST
coming from the heart
HEART
coming from the heart

you can try to fix such things
or pull tricks on things
OH
but its all changing
and it will change me
OH

its all the piles and piles and piles and piles and piles
all the piles and piles and piles and piles and piles
its all the piles and piles and piles and piles and piles
all the piles and piles and piles and piles and piles
its all the piles and piles and piles and piles and piles
all the piles and piles and piles and piles and piles
its all the piles and piles and piles and piles and piles
all the piles and piles and piles and piles and piles
Track Name: Quarrels
the quarrels that you won yeah
they have a way of keeping things the same
and it bugs you for a good reason
all that charm just makes you shy away

whats the deal
i didn't pull that number
i didn't wait to get bumped to the back of that line
whats the deal
this system is not working
I'm patiently waiting for you to fight or flight

you say that life's a beach
well i can see right through you
its neither here nor there
i wanted to be anywhere near you

you say that life's a beach
i can see right through you
it's neither here nor there
don't wanna be anywhere near you

give me a reason, a reason
i need a reason why you can be so mean sometimes
i want a reason, a reason
i want a reason why you can be so mean sometimes
i need a reason, a reason
i need a reason why you can be so mean sometimes
i need a reason, a reason
i need a reason why you can be so mean sometimes
Track Name: Misbehaving
you say I'm misbehaving
so what
have a round, a round with me
it will only be here so long
as long as we please
i sent a letter to my x lover
i sent a letter, a letter to my friends
i found my ticket in this world of many monsters
to find my heart was beating again

so if you are just learning how to seal now
and everybody seems to have a plan
make sure you can fake a smile when its needed
pick up your feet and start again
you say I'm misbehaving
so what
whats wrong with you
its not wrong to me
i bought my ticket in this world with many monsters
to find that i am an imaginary thing

well get there faster if we take it on the highway
i promise you we won't miss a thing
we may not make it to the show for many reasons
but we always find a way to sing
and yes I'm misbehaving
so what
and yes we found a place to sleep
i can't wait to see you in the morning
and i can't wait to tell you everything

i can't wait to see you in the morning
and i can't wait to tell you everything
Track Name: Kiss and Run
making mess to make mess
i won't feel the blues
i can kiss and run just a little faster than you
I'm pretty sure its out there if i make a move
i kiss and run just a little faster that you

you were tired of me
i was tired of you
the jungle will have its way
and there was nothing we could do
there was nothing we could do
there was nothing we could do
making mess to make mess
and there was nothing we could do

making mess to make mess
i won't feel the blues
i can kiss and run just a little faster than you
I'm pretty sure its out there if i make a move
i kiss and run just a little faster that you

there was nothing we could do
there was nothing we could do
there was nothing we could do
there was nothing we could do
there was nothing we could do
there was nothing we could do
Track Name: Something so Important
going red in the face
too late
caught right now and I'm going down
all the minuets that we waste
they leave a trace
of something so important somehow
i like to have a night on the town
cause i like to go fucking around
i like to have a night on the town
cause i know it better than i know myself

i know it better than i know myself
Track Name: Raise your Fur
where the garbage turned to gold
lick the syrup from your nose
raise your fur
you were sweet at just a taste
but i indulged when i should have savoured up the day

yeah well

the garbage get piled higher
and you left too fast to see the trail you left behind you
that leads you right back to me
one part deadbeat sucker
maybe a burden as a whole
everything i loved inside you is too far for me to go
dress it up to be inviting
go towards where the wild winds blow
and maybe there you'll find me
and maybe there
we'll both be free to go


ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
we'll both be free to go
ahhhhhhhhhh
we'll both be free to go
ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
we'll both be free to go
ahhhhhhhhhhhh
Track Name: Monster
so far your mind
its so close to mine
let me see you diagnose this
she hates you, she loves you
you'll never know
and ill back her up on it

wash away your sins with the tears from your eyes
keep saying it out loud, till you believe that it is right
wether I'm in danger today or danger tonight
i promise to that

theres a monster inside of my head
sneaking around and coming out
of closets i have never see before

So far your eyes
there so close to mine
if you stay away from me long enough
you'll be free in time
she loves me, she loves me
ill never know
i pulled through on my side
two sides, nothing to show

wash away your sins with the tears from your eyes
keep saying it out loud, till you believe that it is right
wether I'm in danger today or danger tonight
i promise to that

theres a monster inside of my head
sneaking around and coming out
of closets i have never see before

so far your mind
its so close to mine
there so far your eyes
there so close to mine
Track Name: Heal Up
you not only crossed the borders
but you shrugged your shoulders
and said it had to be done
i didn't know that cruelty was your nature
you should have just told her that you hate her
but you are not the one
disguised among the loving faces are
signs and traces of things we won't ever discuss
don't blame her on the misfortunes
of your broken tortured
heart you can't heal up

this ship is gonna sink
we could float until we die
be smothered by the water
drowning us inside
I've danced with you before
ill dance with you all night
we'll dance across the water
we'll heal up just fine
we'll heal up just fine

I've been looking for a reason
what you believe i don't believe in
and i am guilty of not knowing it at all
I'm acting like a child
held captive by the wild
anything that keeps me alive
you say its not your nature
but i am one in favour
that we have no nature to the wrong
remind me when its over
that all of the exposure
was something i didn't need to know

this ship is gonna sink
we could float until we die
be smothered by the water
drowning us inside
I've danced with you before
ill dance with you all night
we'll dance across the water
we'll heal up just fine
we'll heal up just fine
Track Name: Sight to See
take it to the river and wash it away

i guess it must have been me
what a sight to see
