about

Working closely with Atlanta producer Anthony Nolan, Jessica Marks' eagerly anticipated Debut EP, 'Forget Me', was created in a highly immersive recording environment in the span of one week. The experiment yielded an intimate, deeply personal record that transports you to the romantic mysticism of Marks' inner world.

Track Name: Forget Me
I never held you dear enough
Did I
I locked you out again and again
Didn't I
And though I tried my best to set you gently
Evidently I've no touch of the tender kind
So I put you from my mind
I put you from my mind and I'll go blind
But I've still got your taste in my mouth
Your taste in my mouth
And I, I can't seem to spit
Spit you out, Spit you out
But i'll be going soon
So I thought I'd write these words
On your bathroom mirror
Forget Me
Forget Me
Track Name: Fuck the Clock
Tick tock tick tock
Talking all the time about
The nothingness
and the meaningless
It goes tick tock tick tock
See how he bows to the great clock
Oh he'll break his little back
Yes he will

And I'll be something of a miracle
Yes I'll be something of a miracle

And he go fall back fall back
Don't lean too far 'cuz I will not catch you
You see I ain't got no hands no more
I cut them cut them
Cut them clean off
'Cuz they were the devil's playground
The devil's playground
Yes they were

And you'll be something of a miracle
Yes you'll be something of a miracle

I fault the angels
Yes I lay blame on the angels
With their sticky feathers
Their tricky fingers
Their secret treasures
They lied to you
Oh they lied to you
Yes they lied to you

And we'll be something of a miracle
Yes we'll be something of a miracle
Track Name: Maya
Red haired woman on the corner
She's got a run in her stockings
And she is missing a finger on her left hand
And my god she's fucking beautiful

I know a man who hides god in his beard
He's been driving his cab for 25 years
And he knows all the secret lives of this city
And god he's fucking beautiful

And I was there and you was there
And we created this
Grand illusion
Be quiet don't ruin this for me
This is what I always wanted

I don't know if I told you
But i'm better now healthier now
I stopped eating meat and I'm down
To just three cigarettes a day

I don't do too many drugs any more
And I've traded my whiskey for wine
And I don't hurt myself just to feel
And I won't hurt you just because I can

And I was there and you was there
And we created this
Grand illusion
Be quiet don't ruin this for me
This is what I always wanted

Maya, Maya
Oh it's painful
Oh it hurts
Maya, Maya
It was beautiful
Nothing hurt
Track Name: Old As They
I shut my door in a hurry
I see the storm dancing dizzy
Off in the distance
Thunder has had too much wine
And he makes his wife cry
And he wakes the kid

There are flashes in the blackness
There are flashes in the blackness
And there is magic in the madness
There is magic in the madness

The wise fool wakes up
And saunters down to the cafe
He sees all the faces in primary colors
He don't hear a word that I say
But I say "I really can't stay"
And he says "Why don't you stay"

And I will be your lost
Your straying
Your little lamb
And things will grow
And things will die

I ain't paid no mind to the stars lately
And it makes me feel as old as they
I ain't paid no mind to the sky lately
and it makes me makes me blue
As blue as it's gray

And I will be your lost
your straying
your little lamb
And things will die
And things will grow
