about

Precious Child Los Angeles, California

Arresting and surreal, Precious Child’s prolific body of work exists at the convergence of body horror, conceptual art and experimental pop. Working with the medium of music and video, the Los Angeles-based artist culls sonic inspiration from glossy mainstream pop, cacophonous industrial and metal to create work that confronts transformations in identity, perception and the nature of existence. ... more

Track Name: The Past
A path to close your eyes
Your whole life you closed your eyes
It all comes back
Time to feel it again

The child is back
Time to feel it again
The child is back
Time to be me again

My whole life
I thought I was whole
What I thought was wrong
Now my world is gone

All these years
I’ve wasted my time
With all these feelings
Remaining inside

Buried young one
Child inside
Rotting child
Corrupted inside

The idiot’s face
Is on your face
Distorts and squeezes
The horror of ruin

The idiot’s face
Is on your face
Contorts and bleeds
The horror of ruin

May all this pain
Come back to you
May all this pain
Return to you

The hate from the past
The child from the past
The child from the past
Made my reality at last
Track Name: I Fall
Any way at all
I will find a way to fall
find the thing I need
I destroy
then I feed

Respite I needed tonight
love and stars I needed tonight
find the thing I need
I destroy
then I feed
Track Name: Always Leave
I am living in this world
on my own
I just have my life
it's all my own

This world it didn't
give me very much
I don't have a lot
I don't have enough

If I had to stay here
one more day
well I won't
I'm gonna go away

I have not needed you
for very long
you're not worth much
to be around

to be around
to be around
not worth that much
to be around

chorus:
Me
oh I know
I want
to go

If I was to go
would you know?
would you care?
would you think I'd dare?

I am living in my world
on my own
I just have me
I'm alone

Oh this life
It is not worth much
not much that much
I'm not worth much

If i had to stay here
one more day
well i won't
I'm gonna go away

I have not needed you
for very long
you're not worth much
to be around

to be around
to be around
not worth that much
to be around

chorus

I have lived in my own world
long enough
I'm done with me
I don't want this stuff

Oh my life
I'm living i don't know
I cannot even love me
why would you
Track Name: Fiery Road
The burning sails
of my ship
the winds blown from
your soul

The burning sails
of our ship
the winds blown from
our souls

Come and gaze
with me at
our fiery road
home

I told you
how much
blood I had
to give

and how much
time you had
to
forgive


Now it’s about
you and i
weaving, our eyes
alive

Pleading for
the sharpest life
hands held tight
our mouths wide

Now it's about
you and I

See your face
dissolve into
the warmness
of my sea

Rivers
they make the sea
If I wait long enough
I'll be a rock in your sea

Patiently
watching
water
on your bones

I hoped that
your water
would purify me
And take me home

Come and gaze
with me at
our fiery road
home

Come and walk
with me
down the fiery road
home
Track Name: My Little Problem
Down from my eyes
World alive inside me
Bright now capsized
World I sent away

On my little waters
Darker than the sea
Master of all my feelings
Please protect me

I will arise
With or without what's me
Life won't tread on me
Life won't keep me still

Chorus---
I have a way there is a way,
you'll be the master,
you'll be the slave
You’ll be the one that takes it away,
I'll be the one that gives you today

My little problem
with feeling pain
Every time I try
it’s not there again

I've bled too much
For the weakest answer
I have my strength
I have my mind

In my life I'm living
I don't even want hope
I want the sea to hold me
I'll just swim away

If I can't have
Escape from all that harms me
I know the answer
I will free the slave

-chorus

Life of waters
One I never answered
One I always needed
One I put below me

Why would I choose
To discard my only answer
I couldn't take it
I still can't at all

If I had a loophole
If I had the easy way
I wouldn't do this
I would drown it all
Track Name: There Alone
know
who the real one is
dancing in the mirror
with a greased blade
in his
hand

slipping me the middle finger
armed me with complacency
bribed me with the disposition
of an apathetic man

chorus:
i know
who’s the real one
i know
you’re not the real one
i know
who’s the real one
i know
i’m not the real one

image of the opposed
superior reconstruction
idiom of
the
idiot champ

image of
repressed
majestic form of destruction
what a pathetic
stupid
man

the agent of my destruction
the superior bred spawn of mine
a mistake in the formation
a victory over size

i know who the failed one is
glorious in glass tableau
with a
deceptive act
in hand

i saw who the real one is
he was dancing in the mirror
triumphant were his eyes
how piteous, this man
