Biography


Work Horse isn't just a moniker, it should be a job title. Combine a massacre of Punk rock, Glitch-hop, and more underground rap than you could fathom, then garnish it with a box of nails, and you'll find Skobie Won. A producer, a rapper, and an artist all on the same pallet. DIY from the roots of Connecticut came his angsty and edgy debut album, Autodidact. His current magnum opus, "Bedlam and Squalor", is sure to be a refined continuation of an ever-evolving artist. Skobie Won provokes thought, makes you question your morals, and question authority. On stage you can witness the mastery in action...just don't blink or you could catch an elbow from a raged fan.

Skobie Won is influenced by Tom Waits, The Glitch Mob, El-P, Aesop Rock and Sage Francis

Lyrics

Burn...

Written By: Skobie Won

Burn..

Burn. burn to the ground, when no one is around/ dust and settlement, fill my lungs just let it all burn/ burn to the ground, when no one is around/ Dreams and memories, let me just see it all burn/

Pick apart the pieces, try an put em back together/ building cities out of sticks, try an stick em to each other/ put the ashes in the mix, just to start another fire/ throw my caution to the wind, just to meet another fighter/
And it's all gone, building something out of nothing/ and it's all wrong, in a summer of depression/ yes it's all right, disregard my intentions/ no it's not right, subliminal message in the sketches/
And it never seems to cease, effecting my judgement/ seal it with a kiss, not a topic of discussion/ keep your tongue tied, if your up in side the optics/ the fire burns, and there's no way you can stop it/ it's easier to fix something, that already exists/ then to try to build new, with a hammer and a fist/ keep my hat full, with the rabbit and the tricks/ passion striking matches rags and gas sparks a light/

And it's all gone,.. Burn/
And it's all wrong,.. Burn/
Yes it's all right,.. Burn/
No it's not right,... Burn/

Burn. burn to the ground, when no one is around/ dust and settlement, fill my lungs just let it all burn/ burn to the ground, when no one is around/ Dreams and memories, let me just see it all burn/
