Next Weekend 04:08
every single day feels like penetration I don't know my fucking role this is my only home I can't even try this is just a point of when I don't need anything but feels like everything earth begins to role dancing through the night I make myself go out to find where is that thing of mine why does evening pass I don't want to think of the night coming to an end pass on the funny friend don't fall down this makes you frown I'll show you my golden brown

Shine 07:38
its the end of the race and it shines of my face I'm the one that came crumbling down ohh my head hits the floor it has been there before the pain aces with every fall when I play to myself still she crawls to my bed but I know it is not for real this is it this is no she begins to control doesn't feel like anything else she's coming back with the same amount of trees yeah you know blistering black and I came trough the led yeah you know when you're stuck in the race you slow down loose the pace 'cos you know it's like beating the ground there is no end there is no line she just screams know you're mine then you know there is no turning back when the pain goes away turns to blistering flames and the blood starts to run through your veins like a fist in your face you wake up from the race but you know she'll be soon turning back its beginning to rain and it goes on the wall it's all right I know she's here to stay until I come it's all good

Come Here 05:41
find your right step on the stairs show your face and don't be scared take my hand and share your heart you'll never be alone come here with me I'll show you where to be when the sun has left the scene come here with me please tell me what i've got to do and if we will ever make it through it's much to late to hesitate and make our mends again

Running 03:28
can you help me break the ceiling can you help me loose control this is only the beginning I'll make the fist turn into stone you shouldn't crash the only feeling that makes you feel so gross take the things that make you shiver turn them into rock and roll I'll make you light my candle ohh do you feel controlled this is my last time talking, telling, yelling to you like whispering from the distance you'll have to read my lips why can't I cancel anger, feelings, knowledge, compassion

Numb Face 06:44
could you be saving the words with your hands full of gifts for my grub you could be the only one I'll know until the end of this one where do I get all these stitches am I replacing facing the fire why can't you see I´m feeling badly when do you kick in slide in desire stop at a light but it's the green one and my sense is going no higher life is a path I am facing it's like I'm drowning in my own bottle I can't resist tomorrow I'm dazed and done, my face so young I can't resist tomorrow his face was numb, his face was numb cutting the air with my passion keep seeing memories closing retire faking the pain making circlets the colors fading sailing the distance sliding the past into a drawer the feelings floating loading inspire this is the end this is the closure time going lower slower outrunning I gave you option to cut on my pain but you left me behind with my guilt and my shame the flowers are breathing the air through my vaines and I'm floating in the past on a memory flame

miscalculated I'm so frustrated this is confusion there is no conclusion you where always the jealous one I didn't know how to be right you could always do anything I've got a running alibi it was always like everything had to be done right by the book I hate you I love you so under rated we didn't make it go make yourself glow I just don't want to know wipe the page slap my silly face am I just wanting something blank is it dead is it all so bad we have to spend our lives apart could have been something beautiful but I did it all so wrong I hate you I love you I love you you bring me down how can i rephrase it i need you you let me down how can i replace you I want you it's all gone wrong how can we repair it I loved you it's over now why did we allow it

I want my baby, I want my baby know Johnny wait a minute maybe later slow slow slow slow down I've got to go work waiting money doesn't fall from the sky I need my baby, I need my baby know Johnny this is the night you wanted I'm ready pick me up lets go out lets go out dancing dance till the sun comes I've got my baby, I've got my baby know
10.
I stand out in the cold and I don't feel you everybody knows it's a fucking free lunch I'm fighting coldsnap with my pocket full of fist and my head rings the bell when it's getting real thick like every crook I'm in a cohabitation seeking down your throat in my colorless guilt when I stand up I stand inside you and I scream like you did when I lied about the truth your welcome to the rising yeah they say okay to the system it is a riot on the street take my sword from the sleeve in a conscious way I like the feeling in a disrespecting way so I'll see you again with my eyes full of sins can you believe it my world is going going down the tall is going low the low is going tall when does this stop when does the new begin it is a place in the dark that we bring out when we win

about

Benny Crespo's Gang is a progressive rock band that evokes the quirky fuzz of Sonic Youth and the dirty sludge of Queens of the Stone Age The band is co-fronted by both Helgi and Lovisa and together they sound majestically refreshing.

There's nothing modest about Benny Crespo's Gang. Consisting of four very different individuals, the band's dynamic mixture of over the top hard rock and eerie synth powered lullabies is truly unique and haunting. They have often been described as one of the most interesting bands in Iceland, and with good reason.

Benny Crespo’s Gang’s self-titled 2007 début was gobbled up by local rock-enthusiasts and received top marks from all who reviewed it. Their legendary live shows have consistently made new fans out of anyone who happens to be in the vicinity, and their much-hyped performances at the Iceland Airwaves and Aldrei fór ég suður festivals have earned them fans from all over the world and positive reviews in publications such as NME and Clash Magazine. The band is currently plotting further steps towards world domination and plan to tour the world extensively.

Benny Crespo's Gang are:

Helgi - vocals & guitar
Lovisa - vocals, guitar & keys
Bassi - drums & sampler
Magnus - bass, keys & vocals
