about

DOLLS London, UK

With more than a hint of apocalyptic glamour, DOLLS is a darker, dirtier pop for an evolved listener, bubblegum bisected by industrial synths under recurrant themes of money, sex and violence.

Drawing her influence from Joy Division and Depeche Mode, DOLLS juxtaposes pop vocals with gritty lyricism, creating a uniquely dark synthpop signature.

DOLLS in the bedroom will max out your headroom.

Track Name: Always Waiting
I'm always waiting
So impatient when you're taking up my time;
Try to be an angel -
But I'm dangerously close to catching fire

Oh, please - I want your attention, see
Give it all to me
So be everything I want
And I will be the bestest fun

Honest - promise
That I will be on it later, later
On my best behaviour
Gimmie gimmie
Just like I'm always winning
Wearing that blue ribbon

I'm always waiting
So impatient when you're taking up my time;
Try to be an angel -
But I'm dangerously close to catching fire

Let's play - don't leave me alone today
There'll be hell to pay
This dream - yes it's my routine
And your reaction is the key

My stare right here
Might inspire nightmares
But they're just where you know you need enlightère
Don't go - don't leave
I don't know if you'll find me when you're back and pining

I'm always waiting
So impatient when you're taking up my time;
Try to be an angel -
But I'm dangerously close to catching fire

Can we bring it back to yesterday
Fill the silver screen, my matinée
Kiss me on the mouth with nicotine
I know that you're always wanting me
Peering through the glass of public eye
Love me like a New Wave parasite
Fade the memory of past lies
Take me in your car one last time

Honest - promise
That I will be on it later, later
On my best behaviour
Don't go - don't leave
I don't know if you'll find me when you're back and pining

I'm always waiting
So impatient when you're taking up my time;
Try to be an angel -
But I'm dangerously close to catching fire
Track Name: In Control
I wanna love you - and there won't be no escape

I feel you yearning
Not enough to say I'm just your favourite person;
This bit of fluff is nothing much
Until you're willing to do my bidding
I can't reveal that I've been feeling any feeling

I wanna love you - but gotta slap you into shape
Got to pay for your mistakes
I wanna love you - gonna keep you here for days
And you won't want to escape

Got to be in control
You've got a line to toe
Thought I would let you know
If you want a second take you'd better be down to break

Stressing
Can't let you off the hook until you've learned your lesson
That attitude is kinda rude
Until you're begging for my attention
I'm gonna keep you simmering at my discretion

I wanna love you - but gotta slap you into shape
Got to pay for your mistakes
I wanna love you - gonna keep you here for days
And you won't want to escape

Got to be in control
You've got a line to toe
Thought I would let you know
If you want a second take you'd better be down to break

Don't don't be precious
And getting restless
I can't stress this enough
So be impressive
Eat you for breakfast
Unless you're epic enough

I wanna love you - but gotta slap you into shape
Got to pay for your mistakes
I wanna love you - gonna keep you here for days
And you won't want to escape

Got to be in control
You've got a line to toe
Thought I would let you know
If you want a second take you'd better be down to break
Track Name: Friend or Faux
You have long been down this road
So you know which way to go
All this misdirection
Dubious intentions
Wear the wolf inside your clothes
It's so telling when it shows, now that you mention

I want to introduce another avenue
We can go down
I want to work it out till we hurt ourselves
We should slow down - but we can't, not now

Cannot put a finger on
But we know the pulse is strong
So it really can't be wrong - unless we're only guessing
Whether it's a friend in me
Or another enemy
Better if it's endlessly - I'll never learn my lesson

Is it something meant to last
Is it only coming fast
Is it first impressions making an obsession
Are you summoning an act out from underneath that mask
Well hello, Heaven

I want to introduce another avenue
We can go down
I want to work it out till we hurt ourselves
We should slow down - but we can't, not now

Cannot put a finger on
But we know the pulse is strong
So it really can't be wrong - unless we're only guessing
Whether it's a friend in me
Or another enemy
Better if it's endlessly - I'll never learn my lesson

Is it man or is it animal
Is it everything I'd ever want
Can you tell me 'cause I think you know
Am I looking at a friend or faux

Cannot put a finger on
But we know the pulse is strong
So it really can't be wrong - unless we're only guessing
Whether it's a friend in me
Or another enemy
Better if it's endlessly - I'll never learn my lesson
Track Name: Doing it Correct
Go on - tempt me
Reasons - I've got plenty
But they're empty
Without your convincing

If you make the effort
I'll make sure it's worth the while, and
Get your matches handy -
Always bringing dynamite

I can't promise you we'll be together
But I know that it'll be alright
Know i love you but there's no forever
But it'll be the best, it'll be the best, it'll be the best
If we're doing it correct

I know you know
It's not fair to do, oh
But we share awareness -
It's not about the fairness

I don't need to argue
I'ma just get on with it;
You are more than welcome
To perform your favourite trick

I can't promise you we'll be together
But I know that it'll be alright
Know i love you but there's no forever
But it'll be the best, it'll be the best, it'll be the best
If we're doing it correct

The only way we stay connects
S'if everybody comes correct
Track Name: Eat it Up
You know you love that love
Go on and eat it up
You only need it 'cause
You've got to feed it - oh!

Fucking fabulous just to be here - it's got so much potential
You know you love that love
Go on and eat it up
You only need it 'cause
You've got to feed it - oh!
It's so glamorous and insincere - like a dream of a rental
You know you love that love
Go on and eat it up
You only need it 'cause
You've got to feed it - oh!

So you find yourself alone
No direction, no control
It's a bitter city, but it keeps you pretty
And you're clinging to the hope
That someone will take you home
It's not Ever After - it's just Satisfacture

Fucking fabulous just to be here - it's got so much potential
You know you love that love
Go on and eat it up
You only need it 'cause
You've got to feed it - oh!
It's so glamorous and insincere - like a dream of a rental
You know you love that love
Go on and eat it up
You only need it 'cause
You've got to feed it - oh!

An amnesiac for days
But you don't get no complaints
Parasite, you boast
"I'm just the perfect host"
And it's always all the same
Bored until they learn your name
They're so into you - I read the interviews

You know you love that love
Go on and eat it up
You only need it 'cause
You've got to feed it - oh!

Fucking Fab
Fucking Fab
Fucking Fab
Fucking Fab
Fucking Fab
Fucking Fab
Fucking Fab

Fucking fabulous just to be here - it's got so much potential
You know you love that love
Go on and eat it up
You only need it 'cause
You've got to feed it - oh!
It's so glamorous and insincere - like a dream of a rental
You know you love that love
Go on and eat it up
You only need it 'cause
You've got to feed it - oh!
Track Name: See Through
Stop -
No more explanations baby you've been caught
And there's nothing left for you to even say
By the way, I'ma say
You gon' have to turn around and walk away
Oops -
Guess you really lost your chance to even choose
It's so silly 'cause it isn't even news
You abused what you thought you had
Tell me now you're sad, tell me now you're sad

Now I see you
Wasn't always see through
Clouded plastic
Hide your dirty habits
Now I see it
Through the mystery it's
So dark and deadly
All of the lies you fed me

Oh -
No collecting your 200 gotta go
'Cause the game that you've been playing is a no
It's so old, it's so cold - it's a perfect little picture of your soul
Lost -
Now you don't get twenty seconds of my thoughts
Guess you really didn't think about the cost
And you're not worth the gloss on my lips
So I'm not about to trip to kiss you off

Now I see you
Wasn't always see through
Clouded plastic
Hide your dirty habits
Now I see it
Through the mystery it's
So dark and deadly
All of the lies you fed me

Think I don't see you
'cause you're wearing camouflage
The fact you're doing it
just shows me who you are
I'm not so hungry; I've had my fill
You want to dine & dash and leave me with the bill
But even still - I'll gladly sign the cheque
If you promise that it means that you're never coming back
So one-dimensional, pathetic at it's best
That something so transparent leaves a multicolour mess
Track Name: Breakfast Club
What does it look like from over there
I'm in the corner kinda pulling on my hair
Is it a freak show - we're on the air
Is it a signal coming at you loud and clear

I'm pretty sure that the neighbours just think we're amazing
Just saying

You don't wanna know
Where we go when the lights go out
If you're frightened now then you really shouldn't guess
What comes next
You don't wanna know
All the secrets that fog my mind when we're out all night
Tell you when it's over
No not yet

No information, no radio
We got no contact but it's just the way it goes
Can you see me, am I scheming
Am I screaming is it just a dream

I'm pretty sure that the neighbours all think we're amazing
Just saying, Just saying

You don't wanna know
Where we go when the lights go out
If you're frightened now then you really shouldn't guess
What comes next
You don't wanna know
All the secrets that fog my mind when we're out all night
Tell you when it's over
No not yet

Am I painting you a picture
Or enticing you to draw
Your very own conclusions
Love letters from my heart
Is it kind of overwhelming
All this kissing and no telling
All this magic I've been spelling

Out
Out
Out
Out
Out
Out
Out
Out
Out
Out
Out
Out
Out
Out
Out

You don't wanna know
Where we go when the lights go out
If you're frightened now then you really shouldn't guess
What comes next
You don't wanna know
All the secrets that fog my mind when we're out all night
Tell you when it's over
No not yet
Track Name: Swim
Take your time, try and tease it
Make it last for the weekend
But it's my kind of sweet when
Redefined in the deep end

Swim
See the little ripples underneath the skin
It could be so simple if you want to win
Soaking in the reflects
Of a watercolour remix

And if the water's fine
Why are you staying dry
Why don't you come on in
'Cause this is paradise
And if the water's fine
Why are you wasting time
Come on and jump on in
And let's swim

On the edge with your toe in
But there's no way of knowing
If the temperature's ugly
'Till you're in it, my lovely

If we synchronise the movement
It'll seem like nothing's to it
Know it's not the way you do -
But don't you like new

Swim
See the little ripples underneath the skin
It could be so simple if you want to win
Soaking in the reflects
Of a watercolour remix

And if the water's fine
Why are you staying dry
Why don't you come on in
'Cause this is paradise

If we really dive into it
'Stead of just alluding loosely
All afraid of feeling foolish
Don't you like to

Swim
See the little ripples underneath the skin
It could be so simple if you want to win
Soaking in the reflects
Of a watercolour remix

And if the water's fine
Why are you staying dry
Why don't you come on in
'Cause this is paradise
And if the water's fine
Why are you wasting time
Come on and jump on in
And let's swim
Track Name: Limited LTD (Swipe Right Remix)
Our business is booming just like a drum
And if you ask 'em they will say our deal is done

You know the way I feel
Can't change; your mind is made up
Won't say that it's not real
But can't fall on the way up

I can feel my heart beat faster - but it's making me run
And anything you try to capture is killing the fun
And we never know because we never show
Can't give up control - we're Limited, Ltd

L-T-D

We've got the same agenda but not the time
Alternate days we say we're 'so-so' inclined

You know the way I feel
Can't change; your mind is made up
Won't say that it's not real
But can't fall on the way up

I can feel my heart beat faster - but it's making me run
And anything you try to capture is killing the fun
And we never know because we never show
Can't give up control - we're Limited, Ltd

L-T-D
