Biography

Born in urban Xi'an in China, this Terracotta Warrior doesn't bring death and destruction as much as artistic sensibility and catchy melodies.

Max Chen grew up listening to late 80s, early 90s synth-pop over a tiny Magnavox radio given to him when he was 5. Never having grown out of his childhood tendency to be completely hypnotized by tunes, he takes the styles and sounds he has heard over the years, deconstructs them more thoroughly than a sociologist on coke, and builds together new, refreshing electro-pop like a Lego playset.

Among some of his favorite artists are New Order, Daft Punk, and Ladytron.

Lyrics

Nowhere To Run

Written By: Max Chen


You’re gonna die
I’m gonna kill you
You’re gonna die
I’m gonna kill you

Feeling all blue
I’ve got no more time
They all hate me
Because of my crime

Their threats come at me
Their voices are loud
All to condemn me
My face is still proud

You were my good friend
I saved you before
I thought you turned good now
But you asked for some more

You had to provoke me
So I beat you
Watched your skull bleed
So now I feel blue

Out of ideas
Nowhere to run
Looking right down
Barrel of a gun

And so I dream
Voices in my head
Delusions mock me
My best friend is dead

I feel no guilt
But I shed a tear
I see your dead body
With the blood all smeared

A bird sings a song
It’s all for you
Outside it’s so warm
And the skies are all blue

You’re gonna die
I’m gonna kill you
You’re gonna die
I’m gonna kill you

Green

Written By: Max Chen


Green loved the color so
Just like you
Green seems so long ago
A lovely hue
Green like this pretty tree
In the spring
Green like those summer leaves
A timeless dream

Green was the grass outside
Where we met
Green in the candlelight
I cant forget
Green stems and red red rose
Smelled so good
Green flowed into my nose
Where we stood

Green now I think of you
You turned away
Green was my face’s hue
That fateful day
Green tell me what was wrong
Didn’t have to go
Blue now I sing this song
I’m so alone

Green was the dress you wore
When we did kiss
Green that I love no more
You slit your wrists
Red was the blood that flowed
Right at my feet
Red was my face that showed
I tried to speak

Green loved the color then
And so did you
Green like your pale dead skin
It turns to blue
Green now you’re buried here
My heart does sting
Green grass above your grave
A ghostly ring

Green loved the color so
Just like you
Green seems so long ago
A lovely hue
Green like this pretty tree
In the spring
Green like those summer leaves
A timeless dream

Undeniable

Written By: Max Chen

Seems like our love
Shrouded in mystery
Why do we live
In such misery

Holding my hate in
Letting the love out
It does get cold
Let me kiss your mouth

Sitting by the marble
Of love’s coffin
So easy to startle
I believe it often

Weathered by the fates
Handed down the years
Open the gates
Let out the tears

Love to recall
What we had
Why did we fall
It makes me sad

And most of all
So beautiful
Undeniable
Unintentional

Undeniably hopeless
Undeniably fated
Undeniably loved
Undeniably hated

Undeniably wrong
Undeniably you
Undeniably sad
Undeniably true
