CocoRosie - R.I.P. Burn Face Lyrics




In her mourning
In her grave
Don't you miss the way
That she brushed her heavy hair
Oh la la la la la

ACID BURNED FACE CLOWNY TEAR SMILE
She's the one who made you wild
She made you question all your answers
Made you beg for her forgiveness

BABY GIRL don't cry
Momma's gonna buy you a glass eye
And it will glimmer like starlight

She's got no reservations
Ain't got no place to be
The graveyard's in the backyard
Where the meadows used to be

Lord knows my destination
Lord hears my inner prayer
Mom'll find me by the river
Sunken with her party balloons

Flowers for the ones you loved
Flowers for the lost at sea
Flowers for the ones you loved
Flowers for the lost at sea

Flowers for the ones you loved
Flowers for the lost at sea
Flowers for the ones you loved
Flowers for the lost at sea

Flowers for the ones you loved
Flowers for the lost at sea
Flowers for the ones you loved
Flowers for the lost at sea

    In her mourning
    In her grave
    Don't you miss the way
    That she brushed her heavy hair
    Oh la la la la la
    Acid burned face clowny tear smile
    She's the one who made you wild
    She made you question all your answers
    Made you beg for her forgiveness
    Baby girl, don't cry
    Momma's gonna buy you a glass eye
    And it will glimmer like starlight
    She's got no reservations
    Ain't got no place to be
    He graveyard's in the backyard

  20. Romello Williams

    iconic.

  21. Daniela Pv

    Does someone know what kind of flute is this one? It sounds so beautiful.

    jesstowns10

    That's a tin whistle, AKA the penny whistle, which is common in Irish and other Celtic music. It was bitch to learn to play the tin whistle after having played the recorder, it took me a very long time to unlearn the habits I had from the recorder.

  22. Ay Hole

    box of frogs. Love them dearly

  23. the deeliciousplum

    Oh? This is exceptional. The moment that I press play on CocoRosie compositions, time and many things just disappear for a moment or two or three. Thank you KEXP for making these performances accessible.

  24. gno nimo

    Amazing to have 4 such uniquely and individual talented individuals work together in such magical harmony.

  25. Kristian David Torres Bautista

    KEXP delivering the best of the best as usual

  41. Doug Clement

    The woman singing should break off and do her own thing.....Her talent is wasted here

    Swoost

    why are you watching the video then

    Doug Clement

    @Swoost It was mentioned in a reading.

    J v

    You must have a sad life kid.
    Go back to your Justin beber music.

    Ay Hole

    Yeah but she got paid. So who's laughing.

    Doug Clement

    @Ay Hole What's your point and what are you trying to add to the conversation?

  42. Anthony Piercy

  46. Emily Adams

    I've watched all of these videos so many times. I wish I could have a hard copy - Their live versions are so good. <3

  47. munky64193

    Fire the beat boxer and get a drummer, Jesus.

  48. Jessica Sakas

    why are their live versions so much better than the albums??

    David Lewis

    that's always been my issue Jessica, I would buy a KEXP-CocoRosie album in seconds.

    Jack Marc

    yes pretty much all their albums are mixed like shit. they need a better/different engineer.

    Daniel Jurczyk

    omg so true.

    Darkus Noir

    I do strongly agree, but with Lemonade there's an exception.

    Sal Tucci

    Ive always wondered that myself for years. Why am i so moved by all their live material but couldn't care less for their studio albums ?

  49. s f

    I love how the drum stick brushes are used with the percussion instruments...cool!

  50. Kaique Jorge

  55. Victoria N

    emma sent me :P

  56. eusmilus bidentatus

    beautiful voice, great human beat box nice sweet pop rap-like song

  57. skyler specht

    The flute in the beginning made me fucking cry

    Cobrah Queen

    skyler specht once I was so stoned listening to smokey taboo and yeah I cried like a bitch to her voice.

  58. Gullie Sully

    lost for words I grow up listning to rap. now I discoverd this kexp and see how talented music is all over I don't even want to liston to rap anymore. they have so much to say and have so much energy it's beautiful

    bongoluke

    +Gullie Sully but why would u stop listening 2 rap man. theres so much similar stuff 2 this in rap that makes u wanna cry or jump in joy. whatever i kinda understand you anyways^^

    Phantom Slim

    Gullie Sully the exponential growth of the mind exists and it's almost like an entire journey to find it. I grew up with 80s and 90s rock, then discovered edm, and it took a tall redheaded girlfriend from art school to introduce me to this and thanks to cocorosie and other bands I found on KEXP my taste is so broad it's ridiculous, in the best way

    Todd Hamlit

    Yup raps pretty basic

  59. Gullie Sully

    lost for words I grow up listning to rap. now I discoverd this kexp and see how talented music is all over I don't even want to liston to rap anymore. they have so much to say and have so much energy it's beautiful

  60. Hafsa Ain Shahid

    everything is so goooood EXCEPT when she joined on the last line. hate to find fault here but that loud baby voice ruined the magic that was happening :/

  61. Emma Roman

    this is better than the recorded version !

  62. Charade moo

    best duet ever :*

  63. FreeFlamingInfinite

    Great performance.

  64. Alejandro Galindo Núñez

    I first heard about them back in 2011, I can't remember who told me about them but since then I've always felt intrigued about their music, their voices sound good to me.

  65. Maria Jose Sanhueza

    Anyone know what kind of flute is that?

    Charlene Dickz

    I dont no but I search too

    bakersw/outborders

    @Maria Jose Sanhueza a tin whistle, i think

    sy keen

    @Maria Jose Sanhueza it's a penny Whistle

    Maria Jose Sanhueza

    Thanks so much :3

  66. Adnalva Batista-Plodek

    I love CocoRosie ;-)

  67. Zara Taylor

    I AM IN A DIFFERENT WORLD LISTENING TO THIS

  68. OhNo Antonio

    ...need...more...

  69. Fernando Vilela Filho

    beautiful girlz

  70. Dr. AwkwarD

    thats the biggest drum kit i ever saw

    Nathaniel Teeple

    What drum kit?

    Dr. AwkwarD

    exactly

    Nick Alonso

    I think he was being sarcastic

  71. Raya Enelmar

    this is just so inspiring. like angels, love..

  72. theryaner

    Their studio album sounds so crappy compared to this. Would love it if they recorded this version sometime in the future.

  73. said ait

    Tain c'est bon .  Des génies ces gonz !

  74. rachel

    Wowe omg

  75. Miguel Posada

    Love them but that Elmo is straight from hell!

    Travis Allen

    +Cristian Posada 
    I just had a really refreshing 2-3 minute laugh after reading this. Hysterical!

    Kiarisol Rivera

    Hahahahahahahahahahaha

    voilaviolamh

    Jessica Yaniv style

  76. Marcia Brady

    what the hell is a toothbrush doing on the guy's lap?

  77. Florence Rose

    bless these feminist pagan celestial beings

    Birgitta p.m.

    Love your description! So true. <3

    Danbearpig

    You just listed two reasons not to celebrate them and a third thing that is debatable, unlikely because of the first two things. Their music is spectacularly good in spite of their insipid politics though, like many artists, so I'll listen to the music and avoid any political statement they want to make at all costs. Which, unfortunately, means avoiding some of their more politically saturated songs.

    [edited slightly for clarity]

    RunCircusRun

    Yeah, didn't anyone tell them the Men are taking care of things? Silly female artists.

    Mondo A

    They are like The Breeder's with beatboxing. So true.

    Christopher Ridge

    @Danbearpig Genuinely curious and not trying to pick a fight, how did you get into them? If you find femenism and paganism distasteful, I'd think their exterior trappings alone would have acted as a deterrent. Did you hear their stuff before knowing whose it was?

  78. JanjayTrollface

    These guys are absolutely Tits!

    L Tischmann

    Amazing, eh? @[email protected]



     lol jk

  79. Adnalva Batista-Plodek

    very, very crazy nice :-)

  80. Aegis of perdition

    I love them.

  81. Jane Doe

    Wow... I am seriously amazed by these girls.. Their eccentricity, originality, and style has really captivated me..

  82. Kelsi Kirby

    i would go lesbian for them. lolz
    be more open minded folks.
    it'll do wonders for your soul.

    zak Worley

    ill go lezzie for them too

  83. Simone

    I'm so in love with this song....

  84. marcus molineaux

    Why doesn't the chick with the shaved head shave her mustache?

    BedtimeStory87

    then u havent seen her armpits :)

    Willow Darnell

    One of CocoRosie's main missions is to destroy gender boundaries. They often wear mustaches or "abnormal" clothing to prove that gender isn't a factor.

    Trash Queen

    Because she's not there to please the eyes of other people.

    Rocío Cerbón Ynclán

    you're such a loser, that's why you never get laid, don't you?
    you'll never get it, it shouldn't make any difference if she has mustache or not

    SquidInA FruitBowl

    I agree that gender shouldn't be a big deal but I don't belive that gender isn't real...

  85. Alexeïeva Hummingbird-Ewok

    One word : MAGICAL !

  86. Ramona Flowers

    @ff5500 k go back to listening to your Lil wayne or whatever talentless artist with recycled lyrics you listen to.

  87. ff5500

    yukz fucking awful, fucking hipster music. y'all freaks

    VIØŁΛ

    I'm assuming you're vain and homophobic as well?

    paulmcd71

    too pack fan alert

  88. Katherine Anne

    after watching their live performances, totally changed my perspective on them

  89. LegalDope63Tv

    only idiots argue on youtube

    PEPPERS

    golden comment, the definition of irony

    Andrew Noyes

    PEPPERS i see the original
    comment was 5 years and yours is less than a month. i was just thinking, "damn, if only they knew what youtube ended up turning into." i miss the innocent days of even just 5 years ago.

  90. katrinalol

    Creepy Elmo is the best

  91. zaswadosaze

    she doesn't have to ID as anything...she giving visual stimulation to her performance..if you think my statement is an oversimplification..cool...that was just 1 image that struck me...the great thing is she's making people with brains think...

  92. whychooseausername

    Sure she can express male energy if she wants to. But for the moment, she hasn't publicly IDd as male, or chosen male pronouns.
    And saying that a female/male coupling is more "complete" than a girl on girl pairing is just bullshit. And saying that male/female is representative of this duo is an oversimplification (if I had to pick one image, I'd chose mature/childish or big sis/lil sis or maybe, peaceful/troubled, major chord/minor chord (sorry, that ain't one image in the end)).

  93. zaswadosaze

    and your point is ???...or are you just clueless...she can express male energy...doesn't matter what body she's in

  94. Jessica Sherry

    yeah cept she's a girl.

  95. nojstradamus

    toothbrush?

  96. luis fernando zarate aragon

    muy buena banda alterna !!!! excelente diria !!!!

  97. LegalDope63Tv

    seen em in person...blew my mind

  98. Elaine Lo

    this is too rad

  99. Anlise

    I wish I had this version instead ... the studio version is good too though. It's a great song to curl up in a dark corner and just cry and let all these visions invade your soul.
