Tied to My Chair
(Lyrics by Amber Bird, Music by Varnish)

I am the gun on the dance floor
Muzzle in ribs, pushed out the door
Don’t really care where I've seen you before
Tied to my chair, pressing for more

I don’t need you
I've already got them
I don’t need you
Come on in

I am the bug in your system
Buttons to press, data condemned
Don’t really care what you think about them
Tied to my chair, kissing my hem

I don’t need you
I've already got them
I don’t need you
Come on in

I am the polygraph question
Liar and thief, hide this mess then
Don’t really care that you’re a projection
Tied to my chair, insurrection

I don’t need you
I've already got them
I don’t need you
Come on in

I am the nails on your backbone
Staking my claim, setting the tone
Don’t really care about dying alone
Tied to my chair, dragging the moan

I don’t need you
I've already got them
I don’t need you
Come on in

I am the needle, the promise, the end
Coming upstairs, finding your friend
Don’t really care when i make your thumbs bend
Tied to my chair, screaming pretend

I don’t need you
I've already got them
I don’t need you
Come in come in come in
My gran would be so proud
My boys want you around
My guard is finally down
Come in come in come in
I don’t need you
Let’s crash networks
I don’t need you
Deal with my quirks
I don’t need you
Tied to my chair
Tied to my chair

about

Varnish Seattle, Washington

Varnish is steeped in the influence of dark, jangled pop via post-punk UK music that was dressed to kill and to do it fabulously, as well as "pre-punk" NYC bands that set the stage for the modern and alternative rock scenes that came next. Music where confusion becomes clarity and the extremes of human emotion are separated by a precariously thin tightrope, all backlit by a beautiful dissonance. ... more
