about

Soft Hell, Pill’s second full-length album, is a raucous, splintering dispatch from New York City, animated by the madcap ingenuity of a foursome finding a palpable sense of joy and play in expressions of caustic, black humor. Like the contradiction of the album title, which references our acceptance of everyday miseries, it’s a slew of dichotomies, a frenzied cutup. It’s bleeding saxophone and lustrous feedback sounding somehow pastoral, and winking hooks subtly infused with venom.

Track Name: Dark Glass
I’ve got a headache,
there’s glass in the bed.
A permanent bunk mate.
My cellular’s Dead.

I’m gonna be sick.
The night pierced spear.
It’s my My party trick,
the bow string and tear.

The terrible truth,
the sharpest tooth,
the fire is new,
the visible few,
Invisible funeral - Invisible funeral...

Looking through, looking through,
looking through a dark glass.

I’ve got a headache,
a skull full of dread.
My vision opaque,
There’s still glass in my bed.

Crimes on the way out,
spit out the sand.
Waiting for payout,
one hand in the ash can. 

The sharpest tooth,
The terrible truth,
the fire is new,
the visible few,
Invisible funeral - Invisible funeral...

Looking through, looking through
looking through a dark glass.

Track Name: Fruit
Do what you want;
hide in a home.
Slow like a town,
slow like a town -
it’s slow like a town

Hide in a home,
so far away,
but theres dirt in the walls,
dirt in the walls -
there’s dirt in the walls.

Making it up,
standing alone. 

Walking with fire;
what year is it?
And its all coming down,
its all coming down -
its all coming down!

Sell paper youth,
disposable fruit.
They’re all selling salt,
they're all selling salt -
they’re all selling salt!

If one can tip over, they can all fall.
Fall down, Domino - NO!

Waiting to fall … Waiting to fall

T-T-T-T- TIP to start over
T-T-T-T- TIP to start over

They’re all falling down.
Fall down, Domino - NO!
Track Name: HAHA
I’ve been running' up and down
trying to shake it off of me.
It seems to come when i am thinking,
it seems to love my misery.

Another night another vision,
its no secret that she’s there.
It’s not right and its not easy;
I’m in love with jealousy.

Time after time I listen for the ocean,
but I only found the sea.
I was bitten by a feral ghost
that was living in the lungs inside of me

Ha Ha haunted in heaven;
Ha Ha haunted in hell.

Every time I turn to leave she’s following;
every time I think to stay she’s stares.
Every time I turn to leave she’s following;
every time I think to stay she’s there.

Time after time I listen for the ocean,
but I only found the sea.
I was bitten by a feral ghost
that was living in the lungs inside of me

Ha Ha haunted in heaven;
Ha Ha haunted in hell.
Track Name: Sin Compromiso
Verito, he aquí las coerciones, espero no cometa errores. Besos

¿Te gusta, te gusta?
¿Algo nuevo y sin compromiso?

¿Te gusta, te gusta?
¿Excavar mis sueños y deseos?

En estos momentos de soledad
hemos decidido el final.
En estos momentos de silencio
Se ilumina la verdad

La ilusión que nos perdonamos.
La ilusión que nos perdonamos.
¿El amor es? -(this sounds poetic but not sure. How are you saying it in English?)

¿Te gusta, te gusta?
¿Ya que no hay nada que ganar?

La ilusión que nos perdonamos.
La ilusión que nos perdonamos.
¿El amor es?

Te vi en mis suenos -
un fantasma de alegría y dolor.
Seguimos tratando,
rogando y esperando
ya que no hay nada que ganar.

¿Te gusta, te gusta?
¿Algo nuevo y sin compromiso?

¿Te gusta, te gusta?
Pero me falta el ánimo.
Track Name: Softer Side
Tell me what you wanna hear;
I’ll only give you lover’s words.
I don’t see you - there, there, there.

Some say you like it rough!
Some say you like it rough,
but I’ve seen your softer side -
long-term lover, my go-to lover.

Repetition go-go!
Repetition go-go!

It’s hard to see your eyes,
but I can tell you’re going to lie,
'cos i know your game -
long-term lover, my go to lover.

Repetition go-go!
No definition, oh-no!
Repetition go-go!
No definition, oh-no!

Whose going to walk away...?

Let’s do this dance one more time.

Repetition go-go!
No definition oh-no!
Repetition go-go!
No definition oh-no!

Track Name: Double Think
Lights are on, mask is off,
the nights vibrations wearing on.

Stay inside - get a head -
Feign production, feign production.
Stay inside - get a head -
Feign production, feign production.

Are you staying? Should I go?
Another night to sleep alone.
Walls are thin, they’re listening -
To hear something, to hear something.

Oh, together alone.
Yea, we’re alone together.

What’s your name? What’s your sign?
It’s all strangers all of the time.
Stay inside - get a head -
Picture everyone you’ve met.

Scribble drawn, scribble heart.
Living to perform the part.
Walls are thin, they’re listening -
To hear something, to hear something.

Forget to play it cool.
Track Name: Midtown
Call -
Call off the search.
Wanna get away,
Wanna get away.

No -
No escape from New York.
Welcome to Hell,
Hell is the Subway

Million -
Million Dollar Peep Show
Pay For View,
Sunshine Boy

Babes in Arms,
Pleading the Filth.
Babe New World,
Babe New World. 

And The Loser Is…
And The Loser Is…
Dying for Fame

Hard Copy
Public Eye

(I could kill me now)

Cop Out -
The cops are playing favorites.
Insult to injury.

Limp defense.
Lies damn lies.
Line goes dead,
And the line goes dead.

Babe New World,
Pleading the filth.
Babes in Arms,
Get Away.

And The Loser Is…
And The Loser Is…
Dying for Fame

Hard Copy
Public Eye

(I could kill me now)
Track Name: Plastic
I want what you’ve got.
I wan’t it, I want it!

What a class-A specimen,
Is that a wallet in your pocket?

-Wrapped in plastic- 

I don’t wanna die, no I don’t wanna die alone.

-Wrapped in plastic-
Track Name: Power Abuser
Power Abuser!
Power Abuser!
Power Abuser!

Sex sells.
Money talks.

(In the crusade over who owns the right to my body):

What I am allowed to create or destroy?

Dictating wether my sexual behavior
is a blessing or curse, blasphemy or divine.

What If I want it?
What if I don’t?

Not considering my agency
unless it takes the desired course
within a history full of misogyny.

Ill conceived versions of sanctity
and cleanliness at its core.

I too am raised in terms of trade.

I JUST WANT A FAIR TRADE
WITHOUT EXPLOITATION.
Track Name: OK
To save yourself, you push away.
To know yourself; push away.
They're take the sweetness out of you.

Interaction, a social debt
one that threatens our innocence.
They're taking the sweetness out of you.

Are you okay, are you okay?
or is it all the same, the same, the same?

Why take time?
Time just takes.
Love or lie.

To know yourself, we can’t forget.
Celebration seems so long ago
as we hold our lovers close.

Hesitation is neglect -
a passive symbol of respect.
It’s not gained through my indifference.

Are you okay, are you okay?
or is it all the same, the same, the same?
