Biography

Over the course of the past few years, the Philadelphia-based band ZELAZOWA has been a study in what can be accomplished when armed solely with sheer willpower and determination, taking on the challenges of operating as a national band into its own hands with a steadfast do-it-yourself ethic. Without a fancy record deal, without the help of management or any other kind of machinery pushing it forward, ZELAZOWA has scratched and clawed its way into the international arena, booking its own tours throughout 48 states and 16 European countries, achieving radio play on more than 200 stations across the U.S., and being selected as the featured artist in Sports Illustrated's 2011 Swimsuit Issue and video teaser for their song "You Say Love".

Lyrics

Baby Blue (Listening to the Earth Shift)

Written By: ZELAZOWA

Shall I not return
I will send letters of earnest heart
To hollow you
And console your doubt
Outside and in
Till you...

Start again
Start again
Lilacs and daffodils wither with time
And you'll be the baby blue
You'll be the baby blue

Shall you not recall
What I swore you from the very start
Take comfort I
Will find you in the next life
Heaven descends when you...

Start again
Start again
Lilacs and daffodils wither with time
And you'll be the baby blue
You'll be the baby blue

Start again
Start again
Lilacs and daffodils wither with time
And you'll be the baby blue
You'll be the baby

Blue
Blue

Lilacs and daffodils wither with time
And you'll be the baby blue
You'll be the baby blue
You'll be the baby blue

Spin that Trick

Written By: ZELAZOWA

Spin that trick on me
Like when we were boys and girls
Seamlessly in dreams, so free
That nothing mattered in this world
Still I knew what mattered most was you

Is there no way back to innocence?
Is there no forgiveness?

Spin that trick, let’s see
Where it takes us this time ‘round
Confessions or deceit, it’s easy
And someday soon we’re astral bound
And even now the one I want is you

Is there no way back to innocence?
Is there no forgiveness?

Ever must we part
I will wait at heaven’s gate
I will wait for you
Ever you lose heart
Beg I you remember this
Beg I you recall the promise born of blood and fools

Just one glance…

Is there no way back to innocence?
Is there no forgiveness?

Long way back
Forgiveness
Long way back
(to) forgiveness

Swimming Pool Song

Written By: ZELAZOWA

I got a secret of my own, friend
You ain’t no friend to me at all
Just an object for the using
Another prop to break my fall

But I would bleed for you
If you’d believe I’m true
Baby will breathe anew upon high

With this confession, a dismissal
You’re alive but at what cost?
There ain’t no virtue in this discourse
Only momentum in time lost

But I would bleed for you
If you’d believe I’m true
Baby will breathe anew upon high

No more goodbyes

Bleed for me
If you believe in me
Bleed for me
And I’ll believe in you
I’ll believe in you

I got a secret of my own...

But I would bleed for you
If you’d believe I’m true
(Our) baby will breathe anew upon high

And she will shine again
And you’ll be mine again
Heartbeat and soul hauntings upon high

No more goodbyes

Infinity On

Written By: ZELAZOWA

With the hollowing
With the vapid eyes
The undeserving suck you lifeless

Shake shake them days away
A boy bemused, a whore for sale
They’re thick as thieves
And prey on every prayer
With plastic gypsy babies
But bruised/burdened
I too can be

With the hollowing
With the vapid eyes
The undeserving suck you lifeless
Infinitely
Bequeathing lies
Like rivals unseen

Unfaithful and ashamed
He to her and she to greed
They’re three as thieves
I play host to these parasites
Like socialites with the gypsy rabies
I can’t shake shake shake
Them days away

With the hollowing
With the vapid eyes
The undeserving suck you lifeless
Infinitely
Bequeathing lies
Like rivals unseen

A dollar green and you can change my name to gypsy shit
And who’s to blame?
Not me, not me
But I’ll gracefully take your change

With the hollowing
With the vapid eyes
The undeserving suck you lifeless
Infinitely
Bequeathing lies
Like rivals unseen, rivals unseen
