about

TyLean Valencia, Spain

TyLean goes beyond a vocalist with a power set of pipes; she's an envelope-pushing avant garde artist with a penchant for disturbing sights and sounds. With frequent use of dissonance, conflicting time signatures, a-tonal key signatures, nonscoreable instrumentation and lyrics that reflect a harsh perception of reality, TyLean's music has been described as Audial Terrorism. ... more

Track Name: Love Always Dies (Formaldehyde Mix)
Hatred can fuel a war
for hundreds of years,
but love
it always dies.

Love Always Dies,
love always ends.
Why can't we live in a world
where no one pretends
that there's a happily ever after
and years of laughter?
'Cause love always ends,
Love Always Dies.

Til death do us part,
sabotaged from the start.
Even when we make it through,
love:
it will
still die.

Love Always Dies,
love always ends.
Why can't we live in a world
where no one pretends
that there's a happily ever after
and years of laughter?
'Cause love always ends,
Love Always Dies.

Love Always Dies,
so what's the point?
We only set ourselves up
for disappointment.
Lots of fights,
sleepless nights.
Inevitable lies,
tearful goodbyes,
Love Always Dies.

Love Always Dies,
love always ends.
There's no happily ever after
and no years of laughter.
'Cause love always ends.
Love always ends.
Love always ends,
Love Always Dies.
Track Name: The Dark and the Blue and the Grey
My heart is tired of beating,
beating for you.
My skin has turned blue.

You got me thinkin' bout,
you got me thinkin' bout
what I'm gonna do.
What I'm gonna do
with this life of mine.
With my life without you,
life without you.

I must be honest;
I see no future.
All I see is the Dark and the Blue and the Grey.
When all I saw before
was black and white,
but knowing you
has forever changed my sight.
Track Name: Big Hearts
Big Hearts
get torn in two.
They figure
you got enough
to spare,
and it's your fault
for caring.

The wicked:
they get ahead,
and the fat get fatter.
They count
on the helpless,
the needy
and those with

Big Hearts
get torn in two.
They figure
you got enough,
you got enough
to spare,
and it's your fault
for sharing.

You got your givers.
You got your takers,
but sooner of later
the well
will run dry,
and what will you do then?
What will you do then?
Go to war?
Settle the score?

Big Hearts
get torn in two.
They figure
you got enough,
you got enough
to spare,
and it's your fault
for caring.

It's your fault.
Track Name: Amputation of a Heart
Kill the rind,
because the fruit,
the fruit is rotten.
Fuck December,
a memory supposedly forgotten.

Amputation of a Heart.

Gangrenous,
the wound it smells
baking in the fires of
hell.

Amputation of a Heart.
Track Name: Love Always Dies
Hatred can fuel a war
for hundreds of years,
but love
it always dies.

Love Always Dies,
love always ends.
Why can't we live in a world

that there's a happily ever after
and years of laughter?
'Cause love always ends,
Love Always Dies.

Til death do us part,
sabotaged from the start.
Even when we make it through,
love
it will
still die.

Love Always Dies,
love always ends.
Why can't we live in a world
