This Might Hurt a Little

from by Joseph Charles



With vocals that could fit in the era of post-rcok and emerging indie scene of the late nineties and 2000s, stripped to this lone musical attribute and the work is iconic. No singer’s voice lives in a vaccuum, Joseph Charles has chosen to hone the lo-fi ambience into it’s own driving aspect of the movie. As though a painter had a brush that led to the most amazing smudges.
The driving drone counterbalances the retro vocals and leads the listener quickly through this brief EP.


Let me see them sharp fangs
I'll get the pliers for some help
We'll make sure they're all gone
I'll pull them all out one by one
Please don't fidget your head
I'll get rid of the teeth you need
I know it hurts real bad
But sometimes we just have to bleed

Let me see them
Let me see them fangs
Let me see them
Let me see those pretty sharp fangs

I think you look much better
Without those deadly little things
To let them bite on my skin
Ready to make a mark in me
I tried to change you so much
But you just keep growing them back
I'll just wire your jaw shut
So that I can feel safe at last

Let me change you
Let me change you dear
Let me change you
Let me change you my darling dear
