Biography

Grieves is an indie/alternative hip hop artist that has been very busy. Two records, three solid years of touring (with over 300 dates in the past two years alone), two stints on the CMJ hip hop charts, multiple festival dates and three music videos.

Grieves has a new blend of hip hop with an engaging live show that keeps fans asking for more. Well thought out and original lyrics coupled with organic beats built from the ground up (without samples as of 88 Keys and Counting) by Grieves and Budo together create the unique sound that is becoming more and more well known as the hip hop scene discovers why Grieves has been standing out.

There's a mixture here of singing and rapping, sad music with high energy, and a depressing tone with an upbeat delivery. It works in a unique way and is a one of a kind sound.

Lyrics

Scar Gardens

Written By: Grieves

Lay another one to rest in the valley of my shadows opened up

Bury all my expectations for a semi-normal love

And with it burning in my palms

And massaging into my blood

I try to fight away my urges

"It's only gonna rope you up Girl!"

Hear me, I know my capabilities

Of breaking in the the only thing that saves you from your feelings of trust

Believe the angel on your shoulder when she comes

Cause your devil's so familiar...

And mine will leave you flustered like..........

You count your tears like experience

And me just another sunken dream trying to deal with it calmly

Reacting every situation since you called me.

Head dug into my palms thinking she don't honestly want this

And its obvious

The sorrow sets it off

Hypnotizing both of us into agreeing with the odds

But in the dark

I got a chance to fight it off

Instead I sleep with the chaos that'll wander down the same damn path I chose to walk on.

She said it took her all her life she's steady looking at me like she caught a glimpse of something "I am not your paradise girl" and with it in me its better to save your wishes for the moment after sailing away "you should have never even asked"she said it took her all her life she's steady looking at me like she caught a glimpse of something "i am not your paradise girl" and with it in me its better to save your wishes for the moment after sailing away "I should have never even shown you"

What it's like inside the world I keep a lock on

Purple hearted scar garden harvesting my thought's song

And.. with the chalk gone

The problem still exists

At least the outline of its death prevents another fatal kiss

But thats impossible

Neither one of opted to be positive

We stared each other in the face and screamed until we lost it.

And the fire magnetically pulled both of us right on top of it

Till one of us surrendered to rejection of the opposite.

And this is not a love song.

I'm writing down my problems

The love songs what caused em. now I'm stuck and trying to solve em

And its all forever tarnished

From beginning to the end

You use my smile as an ashtray and inhale its ending sent

Let it go.. please let it go this will kill you

Reinventing us is not a miracle we still do... and..

Just as certain as i speak it to you now...

I know I'll wake up on the left side on the other side of town

listen!..
