Biography

MataHari is a brand-spanking-new fusion of the best America and Europe has to offer these days. Rocking riffs saturated with 21st century innovative electro edge, thought provoking lyrics and passionate vocals that get under your skin. Shaun - the cornerstone of this band - was on a mission to find a singer/songwriter whose musical tastes and goals were on the same page as his and he found it completely with a little help from fate in Ivona (the best European "import" since sliced bread). Immediately after they met in March 2003 they went to work and by summer had material for a full length record, ready to take the scene by storm. In the meantime they found Chris (drums) and Frank (bass) , so the birth of MataHari was finally complete. Each of all four members is an irreplaceable part of this new, up and coming group and their stage presence, passion, creativity and talent are so intoxicating that all you want to do is to keep on listening, eyes glued to the stage.

Lyrics

spare me

Written By: shaun michaud/ivona coufalova

Tell me one more time
I'd be crazy if I bought your story
I'm trying to be kind
I'm starting to lose the will to bite my tongue
'cause I've been sitting here for hours
And I can't take another moment of your
Stupid lines that spill out of your mind and snare me
Spare me from this fairy tale this
Lack of logic that you call your life
Every single word you say just
Fills the air with negativity
Call me late at night
Just to wake me for your twisted drama
Why don't you get a life
'cause I'm tired of letting you leach off of mine
'cause I've been listening for hours
And I can't take another moment of your
Stupid lines that spill out of your mind and snare me
And I stopped listening to almost everything
Ignoring everything, seems to be the only way to hide
Spare me....

join the parade

Written By: michaud/coufalova

Sell everything you've got
Come on and join the parade
Start proving you're not talk
By falling on the grenade
Don't run away and prove them right
Everyone's a star in their own mind
So grow a spine, stop wasting time
Don't be a tree that falls without a sound
It's lonely at the top
Or is that just what they say
If you decide to stop
There's hundreds to take your place
Don't run away and prove them right
Everyone's a star in their own mind
So grow a spine, stop wasting time
Don't be a tree that falls without a sound
So scream out loud
This is me
When I fall
There'll be someone there to see
Scream out loud
Here I am
Take a chance
On someone you may not have seen

mental drive by

Written By: shaun michaud/Ivona coufalova

I let my mouth fly again damage is done
My evil twin’s setting a trend I can’t out run
Cleaning the egg off my face I should just wire my jaw
I can’t believe what I said lying there right next to ya

To late to rewind
I’m stuck on pause in real time

Bend it(my mind)
Break it(my mind)
Can’t stop this mental drive by
Craving
Comma
To cancel out my self doubt

I need to tame and restrain my darker side
Time to evict these twisted thoughts from where they reside

Daggers of self pity
That I torture my self with

Induce the guilt that I bare for a single lapse of judgment

Prechorus
Chorus

Rewinding time after time what I’ve done
I hope you don’t mind me being so blunt
Abused by regret for too long now’s the time to move on
