The Heart Of It

from Kick & Rise by ALEX ST JOAN

/
  • SPECIAL EDITION - EP with book "Kick & Rise"

    ALEX ST JOAN was born next to a flooded valley in drought-prone Australia and raised on Greek myths and disco. Her debut EP "Kick & Rise" (Zellephan Records) features 4 distinctive songs that discard the posturing of youth and lay down what it is to be an adult; vulnerable and fully accountable.

    To celebrate this first release, ALEX ST JOAN has created a special edition book containing her own stories and artwork to accompany each song. Drawing from the likes of the Brothers Grimm but with a modern twist, each story and illustration mirrors the themes central to the songs and provides a window into ALEX ST JOAN's creative world. The book is signed by the author and comes with a CD (as well as an automatic download of the EP).

lyrics

Get to the bit where it hurts
Get to the dregs and the dirt - the best of the worst
Just get to the part where it bursts
Skip to the heart of the curse - get to the bit where…

Get to the heart of it

I offer up my glitches, colourful and bold
You offer words of comfort when comfort is cold
I believe you, oh I believe you
The fire is building, the building’s burning down
I would leave here, oh I would leave
But I’m built for the battle

So get to the bit where it hurts
Get to the dregs and the dirt - the best of the worst
Just get to the part where it bursts
Skip to the heart of the curse - get to the bit where…

Get to the heart of it

I string my phrases like a necklace made of gold
You pole-vault over form with nothing to withhold
I believe you, oh I believe you
The fire is burning, your words are going down
I would leave here, oh I would leave
But I’m up for the outcome

So get to the bit where it hurts
Get to the dregs and the dirt - the best of the worst
Just get to the part where it bursts
Skip to the heart of the curse - get to the bit where…

I believe you, oh I believe you
The fire is burning, your words are going down
I would leave here, oh I would leave
But I’m in for the long run

Oh get to the bit where it hurts
Get to the dregs and the dirt - the best of the worst
Just get to the part where it bursts
Skip to the heart of the curse - get to the bit where…

Get to the heart of it
