about

Abigail & Bliss Montréal, Québec

The setting is in Montreal, winter of 2010 where, following long nights locked in a smoky basement, Abigail de Burgh Galwey (singer), Rudolph Chevalcha (pianist) and former Bliss member Nick Hynes (guitarist, Bran Van 3000) find their creative light. The chemistry emanating from these three souls in search of a vehicle for expression becomes evident when, jam after jam, ideas weld and take form. ... more

Track Name: NIGHT BUS ft. Clarity
Sun is shining, lighting the moving
You laugh, I’ll talk
You want me to cry but I’ll walk
I’m missing the point guess these screens get me numb
This night bus alone
Is free falling with slow warning’s
Help me to move, there’s so much we can do
Earthlings are scared
We came so unprepared

Rolling on the night bus
Living off its lights buzz
Knowing as it comes just blows me away
Learning as my mind sways
Why can’t people just stay?
Leaving life behind must blow you astray

I’m getting out from this devilish place
Where the sidewalks talk cuz it’s getting pretty late
This woman to my right is falling to her side
She’s trapped up from outside
She can’t get in cuz she’s fallen behind
Oh cuz now I’m

Rolling on the night bus
Living off its lights buzz
Knowing as it comes just blows me away
Learning as my mind sways
Why can’t people just stay?
Leaving life behind must blow you astray


I’m taking a ride with the lies on my side
They want a shot with the fire in my eyes
(Clarity rap)
So rip my eyes open
I’m smoking just to live inside this hypnotized totem
We’re intertwined as fickle as time
We’re thinking of dying slowly
We’re only what we live in our minds
My cynical eye is closing on the city of my opponents
As a boy I was a lonely one
Roaming along, my only love was humming a song
The story of my sorrow while I mosey on emotions
I’m rolling off endorphin's
I’m holding something whole inside this mind that I have broken
I’m approaching and I’m rolling on this night bus
Living off its lights buzz knowing as it comes just blows
Me away

Rolling on the night bus
Living off its lights buzz
Knowing as it comes just blows me away
Learning as my mind sways
Why can’t people just stay?
Leaving life behind must blow you astray
Track Name: BE ALONE
Sealed off by glass
watch as the people go passed
All the time
He tells me when to turn off the lights
He tells me when it’s time to rise

Remember the basement the chaos and our secrets when…
Excitement as we climbed those stairs, our lives meant something then

I paved my bed with letters
You borrowed my heart and said: “See you later,
I’m going through some stormy weather.”
Notes speak even better
You’re feeling poured onto the hardened leather
You never knew how to say goodbye

Riding the white page inspired by

your rejection makes no difference now

You want me to be alone, say that the love is gone
Say that we’re like a song that played too much and now has started skipping
You want me to be alone, say that it’s all gone wrong
Say that we’re like that song that played too much and now is always skipping

A box that looks like it has fluorescent stars
With shiny spots that look like polka dots with bright angry eyes
That look through the window pane
And see the big bright world with you

There’s no explanation needed now, I realize
Shit just happens like all the rest we’re no exception now

You want me to be alone, say that the love is gone
Say that we’re like a song that played too much and now has started skipping
You want me to be alone, say that it’s all gone wrong
Say that we’re like that track that played too much and yet just keeps on playing
You want me to be alone, say that the love is gone
Say that we’re like that song that said too much and now is slowly fading
You want me to be alone, say that it’s all gone wrong
Say that we’re like that track that sounds too much like history repeating
Track Name: WHY (KEEP ME GUESSING)
Let’s talk it out, come on; spit it out girl
Your silence is deadly and you always got me wondering
What’s going on?
You know you can’t hold it against me
I got my own things and you know you’re always with me
Why, d’you have to make me feel so guilty?

Why, why d’you always keep me guessin’?
Why, why d’you always keep me hangin’?
Why, why d’you always keep me guessin’?
Why, Why d’you always leave me missin’ you?

Why, d’you make me feel so guilty?
Oh, tell me why do you scare me sometimes?

Your eyes petrify me where I stand
Yeah, I dread each word like the thunder in the rain, oh
Hear it now and hear it well
Hear it now cuz i won’t say it again
I’m, yeah I’m tryin’ to talk to you
But you’re acting all crazy, girl
See beyond your tears
Oh, just lend me your ears
You know I love you so baby just bear with me
I am who I am and you know I ain’t gonna change

Why, why d’you always keep me guessin’?
Why, why d’you always leave me missin’ you?

Why d’you make me feel so guilty?
(Yeah you know you always leave me missin' you)
Oh, tell me why do you scare me sometimes?
Track Name: FOOL MOON
Are we on?
Yeah?
It’s such a delightful evening
Aw yeah,
I’m feeling tingles and shivers more shivers everywhere
I like the feeling, oh
It’s kind of rushing kind of makes me nervous
I’m slightly uneasy
Slightly jumpy but I like it

It’s a fool moon you’ve been waiting for
Where the cool cats hang after dark
Hope you made no plans for later
Once you’re in you can’t get out

It makes me do
It makes me do crazy things
Is it a fool moon or what?
There’s a fuzzy busy buzzin’ in my ear
A fury’s spreadin’ in the premise and it’s dizzyin’
Hey cutie there,
You mean no harm but stop talking shit
We’re playing here, you know?


It’s a fool moon you’ve been waiting for
Where the cool cats hang after dark
Hope you made no plans for later
Once you’re in you can’t get out

In the court with the real
Where the real players deal
My hand, a set of red queens
Those devils, sneaky snakes
With surprising side effects
It’s a dream land for the wicked
Drop in, to say “Hi”
Where the real riders ride
Your mind into a black hole
Tongue- tide with Mister Hyde
With no Jackal left in sight, if they ask,
I’m not around

It’s a fool moon you’ve been waiting for
Where the cool cats hang after dark
Hope you made no plans for later
Once you’re in you can’t get out
Track Name: BOTTLED BLOOD
Lately when I get high
I see 10 million dollar losers
drinking blood from bottles
that got no love for us normal people

Drinking our blood from bottles,
they come in from the west

With their big jets, in their big tanks, with their big guns
just to scare the whole god damned planet

They’re like: “Look at me! Look at me; I got ten times your weaponry.”
“Don’t even think about it,
we’ve got our button if you push it then you’ll all go with it.”

Gone with the smoke
“Puff, puff” there goes our civilization

Fear no evil, no desert, no stones
straight out of the bottle;
the west will bury us alive

No I won’t cry
when they bite my hand off for more time

Drinking
you’ve been drinking
Bottled Blood
Track Name: PEZ DISPENSER
I’m bending the ways
Oh the writting days
I’m not gonna beg to make you stay
No, I’m not ok
Just wish there was an end to this day
Look at the frail body of tales
You make me fear far worse than hell

Use me up like a pez dispenser
Siphon all I know
Use me up like my own employer
You know that I could be so good

Take me away on a train but don’t bring me too far
It won’t be home but at least I’ll be saving our lives
I’d rather be lost than suffer in your disguise
It’s no longer life nor love when you live on despise

Take me away on a train but don’t bring me too far
It won’t be home but at least I’ll be saving my life
I’d rather be lost than suffer in disguise
It’s no longer life nor love when you live on despise

Use me up like a pez dispenser
Siphon all I know
Use me up like my own employer
You know that I could be so good

I can be your soldier
Yeah, you know that I could
I’ll slit throats at the snap of your finger’s

Use me up
Over and over

Tare me apart
Page by page rip me to shreds
Ease the pain away
Leave no trace of me
Track Name: CUT RIGHT
Let me tell you a story ‘bout this cheeky guy
Who likes to waste ladies time
He’s at the head of the race but then drops the chase
When girl’s fall for his lies

And if you knew,
All the things it took me just to convince you to be here tonight
I had to beg;

now if you need me you know I won’t be there by your side

Come on
You know we cut right into the light
We got tomorrow night
You know we cut right

Yet he don’t call when he says he somehow still succeeds
To smack a kiss on each cheek
Some ladies fall for the rush of 15 minutes of fame
But know he’ll never be tamed

And if you knew
All the things it took me just to convince you to be here tonight
Yeah, I’m afraid
Of what the future might bring
But in the end I don’t have much time
If I may, you’re not alone in this world and there are bigger things at hand
I got you guys and that’s all I need

For the night
You know we could ride into the night
We got the whole night
Come on

Yeah, I thought you knew
But there are still some things you ought to learn
Boy, that’s the truth
Hey I’m distracted sometimes
But I know my mind’s alive
And if honey you ask me why
I’ll tell you the story it’s quite funny
It starts when the sun cedes to the stars

Come on
You know we cut right into the light
We got tomorrow night, come on
You know we could ride into the light
We’ve got the whole night
You know we cut right
Track Name: MEMORIES ON THE WALL
High as a kite
Fading out of the light
Followed me to the door
Echoed through the night
High as a kite
Fading out of the light
Kneeling to the floor
Cuz I couldn’t say goodbye

Memories on the wall
Past lives pictures I’ve studied them all
My life flashes before my eyes
I can’t keep a grasp on something I call mine
Memories on the wall

You were so warm I couldn’t get out
Your eyes begged me not to go
As I tripped and said goodbye
Class me as classified
Your eyes followed me to the door
And then they flash before me

Memories on the wall
Past lives pictures I’ve studied them all
My life flashes before my eyes
I can’t keep a grasp on something I call mine

A delusion of the mind
An illusion so unkind
We all need to hold on to
Something as futile as time
What do we see?

Memories on the wall
Past lives pictures I’ve studied them all
My life flashes before my eyes
I can’t keep a grasp on something I call mine
Something I call mine
