about

Honeybabe Detroit, Michigan

Psychrockjazzpunk. Founded 2013.

"Despite their youth, the ensemble's shown a strong sense for psychedelicized funk-pop journeys and a measuredly strange-ified, distortion-stormed indie-rock." - Jeff Milo (deepcutzmusic)

"Honeybabe has a distinct sound quality to their music and it parallels the diversity of the city that they hail from." - Konstantina Buhalis (Ouch that Hertz)

Track Name: Ponzo Illusion
If you dream of stars watch out
Cause they're falling in your mouth
I'm gonna hide in the atmosphere
And dream of ways to disappear

Everything is not what it seems
Thoughts meander in my broken dreams
I'm feel i'm falling under your spell
I close my eyes and drink from the well

Take me away from this place
Free my mind from the concept of time

You seem so close yet your so far away
The pOnZo IlluSiOn has got my head rearranged
Don't be scared cause we don't understand
It's all part of some unknown plan

Everything is not what it seems
Thoughts meander in my broken dreams
I'm feel i'm falling under your spell
I close my eyes and drink from the well

Take me away from this place
Free my mind from the concept of time

She's floating in my dreams
I'm only all I need
Track Name: Resist the Temptation
Maybe when I'm older I'll be able to resist your temptation
But for now I'll just come over without any hesitation my dear
I could have been your nine to five, maybe than we could have survived
Why do you love to destroy what I love to create

I don't want to know what the future holds for me
For now I'll close my eyes and dream of you drifting off to sleep
If time was a drink I'd have a double, with you
Yeah and you'd sit next to me and we'd fall asleep

Walking in circles inside my head, I'm not dead for now
Comfortably I'm comfortable with myself and you
Sometimes I just feel a little lonely, that's okay unfortunately
Winter comes fast but let's get out of here and go far away my dear

I don't want to know what the future holds for me
For now I'll close my eyes and dream of you drifting off to sleep
If time was a drink I'd have a double, with you
Yeah and you'd sit next to me and we'd fall asleep
Track Name: Lemon-Coated Candy Girl
Take time, relax your mind
She just spends her time getting' high
Trying to work out her feelings inside
But when she does she breaks down and cries

Wait, I'm feelin' fine
It's alright, as long as I got you in my corner
Tonight I'll lose myself in you
But right now you're a pretty great view

Now she sits and wonders what went wrong
Thinking of the past makes her remember their song
When that happens, there's no turnin' back
She takes everything in sight and fades to black

Wait, I'm feelin' fine
It's alright, as long as I got you in my corner
Tonight I'll lose myself in you
But right now you're a pretty great view

Well I'm doin' fine, yes I'm alright...
Track Name: She's a Freak
Well she's a freak yeah I've lost control
I feel she's taking away my soul
Close my eyes and fall into the black hole

I wonder if she knows I'm afraid of all the bad thoughts draining my brain
The ones that keep me awake when I'm all alone

I sit across and I stare
She doesn't know that I'm there
And if she saw my disguise
Than I'd be a prisoner of lies

The vision of me she thinks that she knows
A phony person I'm soon to outgrow
A false image of what we once loved

And if I end up losing my touch
It's cause I didn't show her enough
Enough of what I hid for so many years

How long will you last if you keep telling these lies?
How long will you last if you keep telling these telling she’s telling

Because it’s all she knows &
It will make her grow but
You’re not what you own &
Is that the way it goes?

You’re not what you own
You’re not what you see
You’re not what you know
You’re just what you’ll be

She sees the future grow (and start to settle)
Into the vast unknown and
You’re not what you own (and start to settle)
Into the vast unknown…..

Into the vast unknown (x3)
That is where she’ll go
Into the vast unknown…..
Track Name: Almost
Wait for my mind to stop
Taking me to dark spot
Where I know you're not the only
The only one who's been lonely just like me
Track Name: I'll Take My Chances
I'll take my chances on knowing that you are not the one
Who'll save me from my despair and leave me to live without a care

Tell them it's fine
To live in my mind
Take care of me

I try not to think of the pain but than it only makes me insane
Hiding from all of my fears, never solves anything I just disappear

Tell them it's fine
To live in my mind
Take care of me
