about

Black Queen Speaks Houston, Texas

Formed in Houston, TX but hailing from across the country, Black Queen Speaks came together for a common love of the almighty groove. Their sound is an amalgamation of blues, hard rock, grunge, 70’s funk, dance, and soul peppered with flourishes of 90’s hip hop. In short, Black Queen Speaks can best be described as if Jane’s Addiction and Soundgarden got their asses kicked by James Brown. ... more

Track Name: Dead Like You
Is this the place where the big bang banged?
Or just the place where the hangman hangs?
I get my grace from ripping off my face and I am not
going to simmer down.
You have a choice Miss America,
I am your cancerous eggs,
All the soul that you cannot control and the reason you can’t feel your legs.

(Chorus)
Do you want all of me?
Not just the sad refrain,
All of me,
I cannot take this pain,
All of me,
Is so so so set go,
ready let go,
where’d your net go,
I’m not dead like you...sucka, dead like you.

And now you see that I see things strange,
You had me pegged like I’m all in range,
I hate to burst your bubble, it hurts,
but I am not going to sit in that cage.

Because you bleed when they want you to bleed,
and you eat up all the lies cuz they’re easy on the eyes,
To my surprise the days of your life have gone by
while your life was robotically staged.

(Chorus) Do you want all of me?
Not just the sad refrain,
All of me,
I cannot take this pain,
All of me,
Is so so so set go,
ready let go,
where’d your net go,
I’m not dead like you...sucka, dead like you.

Fight through the pain, fight through the pain,
say it again, I’m not dead like you.
Break all your chains, break all your chains,
say it again, I’m not dead like you.
I give it up to the kids in the back cuz the kids in the
back are pushing so hard,
and the kids in the front with everybody wearing their
scars,
and the kids in the back with everybody screaming at
you,
SCREAM ON BACK, I’m not dead like you!

Hold your nose, here comes the cold water.
Let the river flow, grab your sons and your daughters,
Let the livin stay alive, let the livin stay alive, let the
living stay alive, let your livin, livin, livin, livin stay
ali-ive.
Track Name: Bad Habits
Me and my dark side were walking along,
me and my dark side were skipping along,
me and my dark side were thinking of you,
me and my dark side were catching a clue,
I was never the one to play games on you and
I was never the one to change change change,
I was never the one to see things on through and
I was always the one acting so strange.

But I’m crazy anyway from messing around with you
babe,
I went crazy anyway from fucking around with you,
I put all of my belief in my heart,

I went up to the mountain, down to the river, my soul
jumps in and I was a believer of yours.

Freedom you don’t even know yourself,
freedom you don’t seem to understand,
freedom you don’t even know yourself,
freedom you don’t care to take a stand,
I was never the one to play games on you and
I was never the one to change change change,
I was never the one to see things on through and
I was always the one acting so strange.

But I’m crazy anyway from messing around with you
babe,
I went crazy anyway from fucking around with you,
I put all of my belief in my heart,

I went up to the mountain, down to the river, my soul
jumps in and I was a believer of yours.

Through bad habits of me,
my bad habits baby,
those bad habis of me,
look just like you.

Barely had time to introduce myself,
see the real me ebb and flow,
I put all of my belief in my heart,
I went up to the mountain, down to the river, my soul
jumps in and I was a believer of yours believer of yours
believer of yours!
Track Name: Space Racer
Said I’m falling apart and nobody seems to care.
What will I do with myself?
Have a cigarette before your eyes start to bleed.
And the j-bird said it’s time to go to bed, it’s time to go to bed.
But the idiot box say you don’t need to sleep.
He’s a liar don’t you believe him.

Get up now, stroll around now.
Lay down, down, down, roll around now.
Get up now, stroll around now.
Lay down, down, down, roll around now.

Who gonna lose sleep, you gonna lose sleep
I said let it go
I said hey look away look away look away said hey
look away look away look away space racer.

And I missed you, say say one day.
went my self to the blinding light and he said,
hey look away look away look away
look away as I pull this sliver out your heart,
you don’t have to cry for your troubles no more.

Get up now, stroll around now.
Lay down, down, down, roll around now.
Get up now, stroll around now.
Lay down, down, down, roll around now.

Who gonna lose sleep, you gonna lose sleep
I said let it go
I said hey look away look away look away said hey
look away look away look away space racer.

Your left right, left right, ready set to let it go.
Your left right, left right, hold me down a little more.
Your left right, left right, ready set to let it go.
Your left right, left right, hold me down a little more.

I was the one to let it go.
You were the one to let me know.
I was the one to let it go.
You were the one to let me know.

Hey look away look away look away
Hey look away look away look away
Hey look away look away look away look away

Get up now, stroll around now.
Lay down, down, down, roll around now.
Get up now, stroll around now.
Lay down, down, down, go to bed.
Track Name: She
Slinky snakey, lurking toward me, I adore you, please
oh please adore me, here that sound like water falling
through you, that’s my heartbeat sweetly calling to
you…

I can see right through you.

And it walls me in, a river with no flow. A heartache
ate my soul. And my youth has paid the toll…and I
know.

See me now, I’ve grown so much calmer, that’s cuz I’ve
disarmed my heavy armor, I no longer have a stammer,
got bold with the world and said, “let’s hammer this
out,” now old scores and debts have been building up, and
the weight of the record…

it hurts me now, worse than when the hurts went down.

And she says to you, don’t let it get you down,
don’t let it go, don’t let it go.
But she don’t know what you think about,
and she don’t know what you talk about,
and she don’t know how it hurts you now,
when it comes to love, when it comes to love!

The world came winning, the hurricane spinning
around and around, how could I know that I’d be the one
to learn to love, I’d place my hand in yours, now I see …

I see.

And she says to you, don’t let it get you down,
don’t let it go, don’t let it go.
And she says to you, boy, don’t let it get you down,
don’t let it go, don’t let it go
But she don’t know what you think about,
and she don’t know what you talk about,
and she don’t know how it hurts me now,
when it comes to love, when it comes to love!
she don’t know what you think about,
and she don’t know how the tears came down
when my heart fell out,
and it’s cuz she barely dreams anymore.

can she wait, can she wait, can she wait for me,
has it been oh too too long, is her loving holding on,
or is it now too too late.
Track Name: Domino
I am the domino and I stand in row.
With other dominoes, please don’t touch their toes.
I went to take a step and they all screamed, “no,
because if you move at all then we all gonna fall down.

Send me on my way cuz I’m tired of these people.
Send me on my way cuz I’m lost without any control.
Send me on my way cuz I’m hoping for some clarity.
Send me on my way to spite the black wave’s fall.

See when I take my step a yes they fell in rows.
To think, that I would change and ruin everything.
But I don’t understand the problem with your pressure,
I move, you move, we all together.

Send me on my way cuz I’m tired of these people.
Send me on my way cuz I’m lost without any control.
Send me on my way cuz I’m hoping for some clarity.
Send me on my way despite the black wave’s fall.

I move you move we all move together but our soul survive
it stand together.

I move you move we all move together and we never say
never say never say never.

I move you move we all move together but our soul survive
it stand together.

I move you move we all move together and our love does
not depend on the whether.

See I move and then you move.
See I move and then you go move.
Like birds of a feather.
Through any kind of weather, yeah.

I move, you move, we move.
I move, you move, we move.
I move, you move, we move.
I move, you move, we move.
I move, you move, we move.
I move, you move, we move.

Tarry not here like the danger’s gone.
Bury your fears, the wave has come.
Air out your words like an open book.

Put down your pain, take a second look.
Bury them now they know not what they do.
Bury them now they know not what they do.
Bury them now. Bury them now. Bury them now.

Send me on my way cuz I’m tired of these people.
Send me on my way cuz I’m lost without any control.
Send me on my way cuz I’m hoping for some clarity.
Send me on my way despite the black wave’s fall.
Track Name: Sludge
Ooh Lordy, the pain don’t bother set your rain oh father on me,
Ooh Lordy, the pain don’t bother set your rain oh father on me,

Feel it in your bones,
yes from head to toe,
it’s the Mother load,
yes the Mother load,

and when those sparks hit me,
I’m like a wicker man standing,
too close to an ending,
with a beginning to win.

Now I’m ripping down the highway got my feelers in the air.
I know that I’m on fire cuz it’s getting warm in here.
I know that I’m on fire because I was built that way, I was
built that way.

If you can see, to fly with me, then hey everybody with a mind
on heaven should.

(Chorus sing 4x)
Ooh Lordy, the pain don’t bother set your rain oh Father on me,

I go lunk, drunk, sick like an animal. I’m a feeling man among
cannibals.

I go lunk, drunk, sick like an animal. I’m a feeling man among
cannibals.

And I was born in a microphone storm,
said you hate me before I even get you warm,
I lost myself when I decided just to coast,
cuz this here hill had me ending up in hell.

And it was hardly up to me,
just do what they said so,
it was hardly up to me,
just do what they say,
it was hardly up to me,
just do what they said so,
it was always up to me, it was always up to me, yeah, yeah,
yeah!

Ripping up, my time, has come.
I did it again. I did it again.
You can read my mind,
cuz I’d never hide it from you, babe.
you can see the signs, the moment is now, the moment is now…

I swear, I’ll never tell no one who care that you opened your
heart, opened your heart and said,

Lordy, let it come down I said let it come down mama ooooooh

Lordy, let it come down I said let it come down down down.

Let it come down, I said let it come down down down. Let it come down I said let it come down down down.
Track Name: Soulseeker
And he said he ain’t comin back,
what you think about that?
what you think about that?
And he said it so matter of fact,
what you think about that?
what you think about that?
Well now he’s headed down to the shore,
with a baggy and a board,
looking hard-core.
And he ain’t going sailing or whaling,
the look in his eye,
killer and the sky.

“I’m going to find the middle now...but I don’t know if I
can row my boat that far.”

Do you wanna know who you are?
Do you wanna know who you are?

well, He’s paddling, paddling, battling the wind,
the only thing that keeps him on’s a bold remembering,
of a time before, time before the war,
times before wars must be nice.

I’m going to touch the bottom now,
but I don’t know if I can hold my breath that far.
Do you wanna know who you are?

And he was never heard from again he sailed off over the sun and he married the wind.
But look at all the good time that I spent,
because now I can dream underwater, father.
