“Half of what I say is meaningless; but I say it so that the other half may reach you.”

― Khalil Gibran, Sand and Foam


Down near the water
You splashed me with your lies
Laid down beside me
Like a thorn in my side
The thorn protects the roses
Like the rose of your cheeks
The cheek that you show me
When you talk down on me

Talk those precious words
Words that shine like diamonds
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend
Friend you’ll never be
What do you want to be when you grow up?
Grow up and get a life
Life is most fragile
Fragile like your thoughts and words

Take my thoughts and twist them
Take my words and destroy them
For through everything we are
We are perverted by language

Have you lost contact with your eyes?
Do they reveal your inner lies?
Reflect on these pathetic lives?
Words that reveal the inner secret
Words that conceal the obvious detail
Yearning for time already lost


from Boxers, released January 4, 2014

Perverted By Language Brussel, Belgium

We're just 5 ordinary guys (except one's a girl) from Brussels (except the Belgian) who like making music.

We've opened for For Against, Chameleons Vox, Red Zebra, The Breath of Life.

Critics have suggested a resemblance to Joy Division, Pere Ubu & Kitchens of Distinction.

We never set out to sound like anything or anyone. Just to reach out and touch your emotions.
