Remember when we used to laugh at the girls
That thought that they run the world
How they deserved our scold

I guess that now we are no better
Than all attention whores
And filthy people of sorts
This is how our brains work

I am connected to this network
Of those meaningless words
Where I'll have to be heard
Or else I'll become a blur

Nothing's ever
Good enough
But I'll have to say I'm ok
Or else I'll ruin your day

(In this mess that I've created
Craving to be validated
I will send you my dick pic
Just to keep you agitated

There's something deep inside of me
That I cannot let go set free
I cannot waste any more space
I cannot let you have a taste)

It's funny how I feel I tasted your spit
Yet in the physical world
You are no more than a click

Empiricism's just a word
And it means nothing to me
Yet I need to feel your touch
To make me complete

I keep on
You keep on
Just giving
And receving
We are locked
In blind transmitting

When I will see your face
Will it feel the same way
Will it satisfy me
Enough to put my gun away

Hey Karen Rotterdam, Netherlands

Hey Karen is an alias for Bartek Urban, who creates electronica, synthpop, and industrial - the stuff that both melts your heart and your brain.
Home recordings and lo-fi aesthetic aren't necessarily a bad thing, since he believes the feeling is more important. A full scope of that feeling can be seen in his audiovisual live shows, which he regularly performs since 2011.
