Hello Moth Calgary, Alberta

Hello Moth combines pop sensibilities with unearthly sounds in songs that surprise and charm listeners. Warm, passionate vocals contrast with the cold, digital tones of a synthesizer to create a sound that is both soulful and soulless. The result is powerful and unexpected, a haunting orchestra of one. ... more

Track Name: One Worthless Wish
I was mourning the loss of something wonderful when I saw her first
And I was old and I was cold and I was in need of a bright light to guide me and I saw it in her face
And I was afraid

I was raised by heroes but I wound up dying anyway
It wasn’t a loss unless you think about it that way
‘Cause lives are only fun to watch in the action replay

One worthless wish
Infinitely repeated

It was dark
And I sold my soul down the river
He’s a taker, then he’s a giver
The Devil knows the value of everything he trades

And I was wandering ’round through the sky like a scared little bird
And then I heard
The sunset was roaring my way like a freight train coming
The wisher keeps wishing when the drummer stops drumming

One worthless wish
Infinitely repeated…
Track Name: Away
Little child in the corner
Waiting for the ice to show
Little child in the corner
Waiting for the wind to blow

Away
The sadness that he saw in his mother’s eyes
Away
The sadness that he feels when he hears her cry
Away

Little child in the corner
Waiting for the world to freeze
Little child in the corner
Waiting for a winter breeze to blow

Away
The strangeness that he saw in his father’s gaze
Away
The strange things that he dreamed in his childhood days
Away
Track Name: River
Time flows past us, we’re all standing still
We’re pebbles in a river of years
With the illusion of motion towards a salt-water ocean
But erosion should be one of our fears as we lie here

Tick tock tick tock tick tock tick tock
Don’t you wanna go back home?

Hope remains the tiniest particle reminding us
Never to obey the facts
You seal your mind against it and when you think you’ve fenced it
It comes creeping through the cracks

Tick tock tick tock tick tock tick tock
Don’t you wanna go back home?

Time flows past us we're all standing still we're pebbles in a river of years
Track Name: Rain and Snow
(Well I married me a wife
She gave me trouble all my life
She ran me out in the cold rain and snow

Well I've done all I can do
Oh I've done all I can do

Rain and snow...
She ran me out in that cold rain and snow)

Well I married me a wife
She gave me trouble all my life
Run me out in that cold rain and snow
Rain and snow Lord
She ran me out in that cold rain and snow

Well she come on down the stairs
Combing back her yellow hair
And her lips were as red as a rose
So like a rose Lord
And her teeth were as white as a rose

"Well I've done all I can do
Trying to get along with you
And I ain’t gonna be treated this-a-way
Not this-a-way Lord
No I ain’t gonna be treated this-a-way"

Well she come into the room
There she met her fatal doom
And I ain’t gonna be treated this-a-way
Track Name: Like No Moth
Don’t be scared
I’ve got your back
And I will be prepared
To protect you
I will never leave
I’ll make them sorry
That they ever breathed
Upon your glory. It’s okay

I’ll shelter you
And keep you covered
As my hands subdue
The way you hovered
As crepuscule loomed
And something lingered
In the gloaming air
That sounded like an evening prayer

Now like no moth
That’s ever lived
I’m drawn to darkness now
It’s all you give to me
And yet somehow
Your dusty memory
Like focused rays
Outshines the sunlit lights of days
Track Name: A Song About Devotion
Change me now
Don’t be afraid
I’ll show you how
I’m not like I was made
So break me down
I am not real
Undamaged bones
Those never heal

So cut me now, oh
I’ll reconnect to you
Kill me now, oh
I’ll resurrect for you

Sculpt the man
Rocks turn to dust
Dispersing and
Mix with the rain
To form the clay
I will adapt
To see the day
I’ll be the shape you need

So cut me now, oh
I’ll reconnect to you
Kill me now, oh
I’ll resurrect for you
Take me now, oh
I wanna go with you
Change me now, oh
I’ll disappear for you
Track Name: No One / Old Pain
No one to saw the faith away
Dismantling those bones
No one becoming like the day
The desert sand of home

--------------------------------

Absence leaves a hole
A strange, cold, terrible domain
Although it haunts the soul
Old pain protects against new pain

Wild was my intent
The greatest war you could ignore
Old pain is heaven-sent
To land upon this earthly shore

My poor heart is terrified
That’s the gift old pain provides
Every cautious word is inscribed
In cuts along the walls inside
Track Name: A Song About Honesty
Watch out for the way I’ll be with you
And watch out for the things I’ll do to you
Watch out for the words I’ll say to you
You know I’m gonna play with you

You know that I will be your friend
You know that I will make you bend
I hope that it will be okay for you
There’s nothing I won’t put you through

You know that I would let you drown
You know I’d even pull you down
If you put your faith in me
You know that I will set you free
Track Name: Clouds in Cloudless Skies
He likes to put his food in the microwave for hours at a time
And when it comes out it glows with a kind of iridescent shine
And he claims that when he eats it he gains wisdom of a kind
As if the radiation it’s been infused with does something strange to his mind

And I think it’s the microwaved food that did things to the dude that science just can’t prove
Like, removed his soul and left some kind of hole where something should have been but nothing --
There was nothingness present there in his eyes
The existence of a vacancy, like clouds in cloudless skies

Clouds in cloudless skies…

And when I asked him for his story he told me of a glorious day
When as much in doubt of getting out he prayed to fade away and he said to himself
"The molten sun is where my ending should begin"
And a superheated chrysalis engulfed him from within

His voiceless voice rang out across an empty placeless place
And his faceless face was obfuscated by a see-through outer space
And he said, “Don’t take that hot ambrosia out until you hear the chime
’cause if you leave one second on that clock my dear, you’ll just be wasting time.”

Clouds in cloudless skies…
