about

Sukajan's vivid imagery and quivering soundscape weave suburban idleness and violent war phantasies into a soulful lament somewhere between despair and devotion.

lyrics

idle youth, no complaints
an empty tomb filled with nintendo games
wallow in the waves
seeing time just passing by

suntan in the afternoon
smoke a couple of grams and order new boots
and sukajans of parachute
pay with daddy’s golden tooth

maroon lagoon, a rocket flares
b52 pops up into view
soon to drop a bomb or two
sukajans and dragonfruits

sweettooth slips on a mango peel
machine gun shells sink into a deep
pool of blood and napalm sun
choppers humming requiems

lipstick stains on a parachute
proof you could resist to chew on the silk
and pretty much everything else
a caterpillar swings the knell

two bite marks on my left wrist
eighty-eight teeth sank deep
and i lost my proper lisp
