about

Fear In The Rain (Violet Door) is the lead single from Precious Child’s new full length album “heart.gif”, out in 2020. The new album could be considered a “soft metal” or a “hard pop” album. Embracing songwriting standards, it is not experimental. Unlike prior albums, it is less explicitly existential and is personal and anecdote based, containing stories from my exceptionally strange life. In the album and this song I share how I’m a real person.

The song is a true story about the dizzying conjoined fear and love of my first relationship. Because of mania, control, depression and codependency it was ultimately alienating. I needed love but only possessed fear. The title of the song is a tribute to the recently deceased Rutger Hauer’s incredible monologue “Tears in Rain” from the 1979 movie Blade Runner.

The video was shot in White Sands, NM with progressive director Jordan Rennert (She Makes Comics, Cosplay Universe etc). Against the panorama of disturbing psychedelia in my prior music videos, It’s the weirdest Precious Child music video yet; it’s actually SFW.

lyrics

In my old garage
below tulip trees
wake or sleepy time
it's all the same to me

I want you to reach out
haven't been in touch
it's been two days
it's been too much

No don't rush it
i really want to talk
why'd you dye your hair
you said I say too much

Don't you understand
what a lie means?
You said you fucked forty
by fourteen

I am what I am
You are what you are
I'm not what you're not
You aren't who you are

I didn't want
I didn't need
I shouldn't have
I don't deserve to bleed

I know how you taste
salty as the sea
You're a real person

I am just
Fear in the Rain

Let's make some
rules for us
what we can't do
is us

We must call
we must write
we must love
we mustn't fight

I never said
what I did
kicked Daisy down the stairs
it was excellent

Candy in my skin
fills me up again
tears the pink away

cotton candy
melts in the rain
red fears wash away

wash away again
wash away in the rain
and so do you
