The Crux 03:18
Let go What are you doing here? Jet lag What is there left to fear? Water Drips into the tub Blood Hangs from a bag up there And the oculus That we found that day And we’ll never speak When our mouths are stitched What a slime that day We just had to seek And the occupants Reached the text

When you head to the store Pick me up some yellow Why coming home to it? The ghost is slit Come home to me The scene is free x2 It’s always in your hands x2 Send your antidote to me x2 Come home to it The ghost is slit Come home to me The scene is free x2 But the act will cost you so You’re always in my head x2 I’m looking at my mark

And I won’t Eat chalk And I won’t Leave pock And I won’t Stand guard And he won’t Seat death Animals When I play At night And the sauce Meets space When I play At night And the sound Is right Animals

Feed 03:15
I don’t see why you have to go We can’t stay in this type of time anymore When the lever hits I can’t cry anymore Why does the earth sit and wait on the plane? Is the quick painted red in your dreams? Why is this lottery on everyone’s scent? We are one and a half in the sun We are 3 in the pottery run When I get the urge to walk in reverse And the lopsided fountain comes to the purse Step inside and take a slip This house is imperfect It sits on a sink I saw my future son In the green, green jungle Wearing a bandana I don’t feed you I don’t feed you well

Holy Ollie 02:49
When the days go dripping by I cede my vanity And the eyes go slipping through I seed my garden bed When the sprockets in your eyes Glean to me I bend And the pockets in our minds Will to find the jump I don’t know who you are Why can’t I shake the thought? I don’t know who you are Why don’t we take a look

End Trails 04:06
When the alphabet was lean And the trail led to the weir On the edge of 17 On the ledge, you set me free When the amplitude fought back You were sitting in the sand Take a look inside of me Take a look inside of me When the lights dont show their fear And the stains of all the tears On the edge of 33 Dont throw away another day When the altitude fought back You were humming in the black Take a look inside of me Take a look inside of me When the amplitude fought back You were sitting in the sand When the altitude lost track You were daring at, staring at me Take a look inside of me Take a look inside of me

Shaking Ship 03:05
Wanna come home Shake down Send help Wanna send out Shake-waves Send help Wanna wake up Inside Slick line When you lay down next to it Don’t forget the shaking ship Wanna stick out My thumb Lend help Wanna punch through That line Slick line Don’t wanna stand through This song Send help Don’t wanna sit through This song Send help When you lay down next to it Don’t forget the shaking ship I can hear it in my face Look away and stand in place Never gonna get back into the deep fryer now

Tied 03:00
I can’t hold the patients at the door I can’t see the world sit in the sink I wanna see the vessel in the sand I want a map of humankind in my hand I’m not responsible for the war We're all responsible for the war Nothing tastes as good as being thin Nothing feels as loving as the wind section Time It’s a hell of a drug Ghosts Their a hell of a drug The valley It’s a hell of a drug

Sewer Bells 03:15
When you sleep And you drool Dont come home To find it there Burn the rugs Burn the stand Burn it all And pick it up Pick it up Pick it upppp The difference is dark, like a black hole Enveloping and consuming Retching because you are there Fingers warm and cold breath lie Send my love Across the screen Make it ooze Make it sneeze Burn the rugs Burn the stand And don't come back To find it there Pick at it Pick it up Pick at it And pick it up The difference is dark, like a black hole Enveloping and consuming Retching because you are there Fingers warm and cold breath lie

I watched a spark just the other day I saw it jump in 4K I felt the ember next to me The carpet went up In flames Alarm set off The power Off won’t work, won’t work I called the firefighters No one’s here This place is burning down The screen won’t quit I saw a spark just the other day I watched it all in 4K I saw an ember fly Fly into my mouth It went down My throat, my throat It rested In the deepest depths of my bowels I called the doctor No ones here This place is burning down The screen won’t quit

Soft Evils 04:24
Can’t See Can’t see The gas Faint Hint Faint hint Of sandlewood Would You Would you Stand back please Winding down Zipping up Send a line To the host Send us all To our rooms Line me up Break us all Into bits Bite my tongue Tongues are for Working class Fodder Won’t You Won’t you Hold this Hold Me Hold me Down tight Shake Strap Supine Rising up Slip Into The line Of sight Send us all To our rooms Line me up Break us all Into bits Bite my tongue Tongues are for Working class Metaphors Note to the Editor Last word

Unsettled 03:12
The gaudy horror of the amp light With the coming tide of dawn You’re alright Hello? Who’s there? When does it get better? What do you want now? I need you to not be here right now for this With the shallow urgency of meaning And the typological demeaning And the body horror of the evening When do you want from me? “Shake it off with a stick,” he said Sinking at the arena x2 The body horror of the evening And the common horror of the creeping With the coming tide of dawn You’re not right Ramp it up from here

about

MALLSEX is a Vancouver, Canada-based post-punk band. Formed in 2018 out of a mutual love of noise and synthesizers, MALLSEX combines elements of punk, art-punk, shoegaze, darkwave and noise.

Live in Reverse, the follow-up LP to Discreet Services, crystallizes the potent song-craft of the debut, homing in on a precise, pummelling post-punk attack of guitar blasts and growling synthesizers. Live in Reverse is what happens when you toss the Pixies in a blender with an equal measure of Preoccupations, blast it on high, and then light it on fire.
