Utopia 03:10
I among the sleeping crown Taking hand You draw it out There's a hunger in my being Flooded by an emerald high You are unearthed I discover Washing over Holy other Oh it's surreal it's surreal it's surreal yeah Oh it's surreal it's surreal it's surreal yeah Eye among the sleeping crown Taking hand you draw it out There's a hunger in my being Flooded by an emerald high You are unearthed I discover Washing over Holy other And is this my reality? And is this really happening? And is this my reality? And is this really happening?

Deny 03:54 video
I know the spirit Etiquette I'd wash your feet with My dirty hair Jesus I love you With all my heart But I feel like an angel I'm lacking the star I'm lacking the spirit I'm losing the heart I'm lacking the spirit I pray my mother Won't you ever find a cure? Throw back odd pill Find euphoria I once knew Am I so dulled down? Am I a whitewashed wall? So dirty on The inside? I know the spirit Etiquette I'd wash your feet with My dirty hair And you know I love you With all my heart But I feel like an angel I'm lacking the star I pray my mother Won't you ever find a cure? Throw back odd pill Find euphoria I once knew Am I so dulled down? Am I a whitewashed wall? So dirty on The inside? I pray my mother won't you ever find a cure? Throw back odd pill find euphoria I once Am I so dulled down? Am I a whitewashed wall? So dirty on The inside?

Shame 03:39
I'm your garden of Eden I'm your promise land You deny me the freedom Still I'm innocent You can't even Look at me Hide the shame In your eyes You can't even Look at me Hide the shame I see tonight Hide the shame I see tonight You can't even look at me Hide the shame that's in your eyes You can't even look at me Hide the shame that's in your eyes I can't bear to look at you Only love I ever knew You can't even look at me Oh I know your shame is true You don't understand the things that you do Get up in the morning It's a constant dread Once you've had your fix Once your bible is read Oh living fear I think I'd rather Be Dead Look at me Look at me Don't hide the shame that's in your eyes Hide the shame that's in your eyes Father do you forgive the one Who beats his son? Knows not what he's done? Father do you forgive the one who beats? Look at me Look at me Look at me Look at me Don't hide the shame that's in your eyes Hide the shame that's in your eyes Look at me Don't hide the shame that's in your eyes Hide the shame that's in your eyes

Hierophant 07:59
You're always on my mind I want you all the time The pain of tenderness is A wound of love I can't control it What I'm trying to say I wanna be the one you want I've gotta be your lover I've gotta be the only one you crave I'm gonna be the one devastated by lust I'm gotta be your lover I’ve gotta be the only one you crave My heart is heavy We're never ready If you're the sacred script I am the Hierophant You're never ready What I’m trying to say I wanna be the one you want I've gotta be your lover I've gotta be the only one you crave I'm gonna be the one Devastated by lust I've gotta be your lover I’ve gotta be the only one you crave x2 If you’re a sacred script I am the Hierophant If you're a holy church I wanna worship Wanted to be the one wanted to be wanted to be the one wanted to If you’re a sacred script I am the hierophant If you're a holy church I wanna worship I’ve gotta be the one I’ve gotta be I’ve gotta be the one I’ve gotta x7 If you’re the sacred script I am the hierophant If you're a holy church I wanna worship Wanted to be the one wanted to be wanted to be the one wanted x2 If you’re a sacred script I am the hierophant If you're a holy church I wanna worship I’ve gotta be the one I’ve gotta be I’ve gotta be the one I’ve gotta If you’re the sacred script I am the hierophant If you're a holy church I wanna worship I’ve gotta be the one I’ve gotta be won't let me be the one won’t let me x2

Worn 04:37
All I ever wanted to be You strip a sense of self from me And it all remains a blur sordid Ever hounding I wish somebody would have told me Cause the past you can't get back Feels like somebody wore me There's a deliverance I lack And it's in my body I wish somebody would have told me Cuz the past you can't get back Feels like somebody wore me There's a deliverance I lack I can't remember everything You break the bread You drink the wine You were a bad man You break the bread you drink the wine When we scream inside You break the bread you drink the wine You fucking joker You break the bread you drink the wine Wish somebody would hold me Cause the past I can't get back Feels like somebody wore me Yeah there's an innocence I lack I see you with your narrow eyes Plotting in your heart I knew you were a miserable Pitiful harm I see you with your narrow eyes Plotting in your heart I knew you were a miserable Pitiful harm You break the bread and you drink the wine You break the bread and you drink the wine You break the bread and you drink the wine You break the bread and you drink the wine You break the bread and you drink the wine You break the bread and you drink the wine You break the bread You break the bread And you drink the wine I can't remember anything You break the bread you drink the wine You were a bad man You break the bread you drink the wine When we scream inside You break the bread you drink the wine You fucking joker You break the bread you drink the All I ever wanted to be

Manna 06:16
Am I created in the image of my "Father God"? Am I created in an image? What I had I lost Am I created in an image what I want to see? I am created in the image of suffering I'm suffering Calling all your heavy laden Graceless All suffering Calling all you heavy laden Faceless Manna machine I'm suffering Suffering We're all suffering Suffering Yeah I really really want it to end Calling all your heavy laden graceless All suffering Calling all your heavy laden Faceless Manna machine Who do you think you are? You and all your suffering? You call it Like the manna machine You call it Like the manna machine But I am Suffering Created in the image of suffering Created in the image of suffering Suffering Created in the image of suffering Suffering Created in the image of suffering

Hem 08:05
I am trudging through My confident host I feel sedated Subdued Seduced by the numbness So I look to both my mother and father so entranced by religion and the thought of the world ending Oh I look to you my love I thought you knew better You keep taking the drug Yeah I'm reaching for a hem in the sky Asked so many question No reply Won't you help me out? Won't you help me out? You've gotta help me out Lost in a crowd Lost in a crowd Won't you help me out? You've gotta help me out You've gotta help me out Lost in a crowd Lost in a crowd I'm reaching for a hem Reaching for a hem Reaching for a hem Reaching for a hem Reaching for a hem Reaching for a hem Reaching for Reaching for a hem Reaching for a hem Reaching for Reaching for a hem Reaching for x3 Won’t you help me out? Won’t you help me out? You've gotta help me out Lost in a crowd Lost in a crowd x3 I’m reaching for a hem Reaching for a hem Reaching for a hem Reaching for a hem Reaching for a hem Reaching for a hem Reaching for Reaching for a hem Reaching for a hem Reaching for Reaching for a hem Reaching for x4 Am I a fountain of loss? Just a well of empty thought? Feel like a cloud bearing no rain And is my time here in vain? I'm reaching for a hem

about

San Francisco's KING WOMAN unveil their debut full-length Created In The Image of Suffering, a profoundly crafted opus of brooding, ethereal doom-rock. Led by the hypnotic and breathy vocal dramatics of Kristina Esfandiari, KING WOMAN harness the elastic textures and temporality of drone and metallic shoegaze alongside the transcendental, melancholic power of doom. Recorded with engineer Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Wreck & Reference, Oathbreaker) at the Atomic Garden, Created In The Image of Suffering's seven compositions evoke rich, gloomy imagery with crumbling washes of blurred, billowing distortion densely layered atop hazy, psychedelic atmospheres that call to mind a surrealistic Black Sabbath fronted by Mazzy Star. Complete with deeply personal, introspective lyrics that serve as catharsis for years of religious and mental torment, KING WOMAN truly suffer to create their art.
