about

This is precise rage. Armed with lyrical urgency, Body Betrayal cut right through the realm of fear and reflect upon dark trajectories. Think of a political dream that hasn’t been dreamt yet in most Gender Studies classes. Co-released by Our Voltage & Body Betrayal.

Track Name: Sliver
the heavens aren't humane
and most life has left me
i am not a good survivor
my body's bitter bed unmakes itself

some scars last forever
some wounds don't get better
the older i get
the less i make the best of it
my appetite comes and goes
my stomach is a big black hole
i am not a good survivor
Track Name: Desert
the heavens aren't humane
and most life has left me
i am not a good survivor
my body's bitter bed unmakes itself

some scars last forever
some wounds don't get better
the older i get
the less i make the best of it
my appetite comes and goes
my stomach is a big black hole
i am not a good survivor
Track Name: Time Spiral
time spirals and i'm here again
my head hurts, body aches
in the fog there is a thread
in the dark sound carves shapes

purity is a funeral pyre
rain turns ash essence to stone
build a shield
make a weapon
find an exit
break bread again
break bread
Track Name: Empty Binary/Built Capacity
our bodies are cages for birds in flight
songs are possibilities buried alive
sift untruths through my hands like sand
to find stars, the moon, the spell of myself
collapse a cave in your chest
to hold complexity
or just a place to hold
all of yourself
Track Name: My Gender is Queer
i am a dream that hasn't been dreamt yet
everyone's got a stake in my identity
but there are no words
to match my lived complexity
Track Name: Soft Cage
who still believes in choice
dreamers, dreaming
come out to meet me

there is no in or outside
abstractions burn bright white

break the soft cage
our angers a violence
i believe in
break the soft cage
our loves a fury i depend on
