about

Fronz Arp New York, New York

The strange machine which is Fronz Arp grinds like a tattered, angry little hurdy gurdy. With dramatic jaunt and seesawing melodies that have been compared to weird-pop wonders, such as David Bowie and Tom Waits

Track Name: Things Have to End to Begin
If a love could affect Frankenstein
Just a puzzle of flesh so entwined
By the threads of his fathers conceit
Like a noodle that’s too hot to eat


He said one day
I will find a Way
To settle in this love
But things have to end to begin

She scrubbed her raven skin white
To match the greed in her lovers moon eyes
Like a spider on indolent web
To catch the love that her heart won’t forget

She said one day
I will find a way
To settle in this love
But things have to end to begin

Its never too late, no
She said lover its never to late, no
Lover its never too late
But things have to end to begin

Her arms hold the ghost of a man
Though she grieves he will not be again

But things have to end to begin til they stop
Things have to end to begin
Track Name: Anomalous Anatomy
You used to look good in a dress boy
Hiding your anomolous anatomy
The question of your pedigree
But it's true what they say about men
As a method of emotional economy
Rejecting your autonomy
When life is so cruel for the faithful
Living with a heart that's such a prostitute
Just look at what it's done to you

You used to look good just frightened
Hiding your anomolous anatomy
The effect was much more flattering
But envy is an angry dwarf
And he's squealing like a piglet on a knife
A pushing needle in your eye
But I bet it was a private school boy
That used to beat you senseless as a mute
And fuck the self belief back out of you

You think you're falling in love
It used to be that you'd fall much farther
It used to be that you'd trust them in time
You hang your life on a string
It used to be it would swing much farther
It used to be that you'd trust them in time

You used to look good in a dress boy
Crying in a mirror built to shatter
The anomalous anatomy
Track Name: Tessa Hates Her Body
Tessa hates her body so she traps in a bold disuise
From behind it she can’t look me in the eyes

And if it breaks when it falls
Are the pieces left enough
Why don’t you stay
Why don’t you stay

Tessa hates her body she attacks it with a cold despair
And the lines she carves in her arms never disappear

You were lying on the floor
So I sewed your wrists close
Why don’t you stay
Why don’t you stay

There’s a pressure on my chest
There’s a pressure on my chest
Why don’t you stay
Why don’t you stay

Look what I’ve become
I’m just a strangers face in the mirror
And I’m calling out
I’m calling out
I’m calling out behind you
But you’re running like you can’t escape

Why don’t you stay
Track Name: Our Own Private Communism
Could we live in our own private communism
Under the darkened skies of our modernism
Hands reaching out through the bars of our lonely prison
Ripping and tearing the knees of our unforgiven

Though there may be times in which you
Seem a habit to me

But could you want me
Could you surely long to
Be forever
Happily married to me

Could we live in our own private communism
Eight arms and legs of a spidery orgnism
Joined at the chest sewn with yarn thick with indecission
Into patterns and glued to the walls of our contraception

Though there may be times in which you seem
A habit to me

But could you want me
Could you surely long to
Be forever
Happily married to me

There's a monster at the door
He's so red and jealous
(don't be hasty)
There's a hunter lying low
He's so cold malicious
(don't be hasty)
And I'm every moment caught out unaware

Though there may be times in which you
Seem a habit to me

But could you want me
Could you surely long to
Be forever
Happily married to me you
want me could you surely long to
Be forever
Happily married to me
Track Name: Tiny Furry Happy Animals
We're all just tiny furry happy animals
Hiding from the hungry cannibals
The wolves are scratching at my door
Please chase them away
Though urges pull like sore stitches
Who'll save me from these horny bitches
And the creatures flying around me
That have sent me screaming

Out into the traffic which is speeding past
But as fast as I'm running well the headlights are still coming
As the driver eyes her prospect with an itchy hand
And a grin across his jaw
She's got her foot down to the floor

She's just a tiny furry happy animal
Dressed up like an individual
Her eyes are bright and shining with an innocent gaze
But just incase my pallid destitute
Flesh dissolves in casutic solitude
My fingers close around her arm
With the strangest feeling

Like I don't believe there's a way out
Because as fast as I'm running there's another one coming
So I run faster I run faster
I keep running running running
But my legs are getting tired
And my expectations crumbling

She said come on come on
You lost it hesitating
You lost it hesitating
She said come on come on
You lost it hesitating
You lost it hesitating
She said come on come on
You dropped it dropped it dropped it
Like a burden

We're all just tiny furry happy animals
Hiding from the hungry cannibals
The wolves are scratching at my door
Please chase them away
I've searched my blood for any symptom
That's left by wine still in my system
As I reach the open window so that
I can sneak on out
Track Name: Car Crash
Car crash on the freeway
I'm rolling around in a hurricane
But before you walk away
Before you walk away

If you care for me
If you care for me
If you care for me
Get me out?

Car crash on the interstate
Words with the sound of heart ache
But before you can escape
Before you can escape

If you care for me
Get me out?

Just a minute though
Another love has grown bitter cold
And silent like inertia we'll fall into place
He stared into a mirror
And found a life that was frozen still
Blinded by the lights of oncoming disdain
Just get me out
Just get me out


If you care for me
Would you wait for me
Would you cry for me
Would you lie for me
Would you die for me
Because I've got know where else to be
Track Name: Love is a Cruel Machine
Love is a cruel machine
So get it out of my hands

Winches sneeze
my heart is pumping like a piston’s scream
keeps me spinning round and round
like wheels that are turning ‘til we’re Upside-down
carbon, breathing lead and sound
steel is bending under shifting walls
tears are dry before they fall
but it doesn’t matter much to me

My blood is pumping like a train that is thumping
Like a rhythm is jumping hear it… 1… 2… 1… 2…
My eye is twitching like a whore who is twisting on the floor
I can hear them
Love is a cruel machine
Track Name: A Shy Bird
A shy bird sat in an oaken tree
And drawn like a man to the violent sea
My heartbeat stilled as she sang to me

I caught her with my hand outreached
And held her, so she’s mine to keep
And now her song will never cease

Oh what a joy
What a friend
Lend me your love
As though I intent
Oh what a toy
What a man
I’ve become
To hold for too long

The moonlight fell on an empty scene
A silence where she used to be
A ghost left by the unreleased
And like a lover lost will never be the same
And as the sunlight from the sky must surely fade
So does the singing of a shy bird in a cage
