about

Rudy Simone New York, New York

Simone is the strange progeny of mixed musical marriages, from early jazz, through classic rock, metal, dark wave, trip hop and just about everything else that appealed to her soul. Half British, half American her haunting songs evoke the Yorkshire Moors as much as the narrow streets of Nola and the dark forests of upstate NY. Her voice is equally dualistic... ... more

Track Name: Dying Star
Some turn it in to silence others turn it out to violence
No matter how we get our kicks We’re all looking for a fix
You got to hang on to yourself
You’ll never be anybody else
At times its hard no one can blame you
For wishing someone would come and save you

You shine a light like a dying star
I feel your desperate glow from afar
I wish you could see the beauty I see
can you see me can you see

But for grace there I’d go
And where I’d wind up no heaven knows
I could have shot my whole world down and died
Instead I’ll raise my voice and cry

You shine a light like a dying star
I feel your desperate glow from afar
I wish you could see the beauty I see
can you see
I shine a light like a dying star
Can you feel my desperate glow from afar
I know you can see the beauty in me
can you see can you see me
Track Name: Burn the Witch
‘Burn the witch’ somebody said
‘We don’t trust a woman who lives inside her head
She can be classy be sassy but she better know her place
She better do her hair and put makeup on her face’
And the director said ‘we’re gonna Put that witch to bed’

‘Burn the witch’ the broker said
I say Go back to wall street in your Mercedes Benz
I’ll plant my trees and plants my seeds inside your heads
You just keep on ripping off the world until it ends
‘Why’s she whining I’m just taking care of me and mine‘

‘Burn the witch’ the newsman said
‘He’s just a loner never leaves his tool shed’
We’re not stockpiling armaments and building bombs
We are gathering wisdom and we think your world is dumb
‘You can work here too babe but you better have nice legs‘

‘Burn the witch’ the jihadist said
‘She cannot go to school with thoughts fillin’ up her head’
I don’t need religion there’s just one golden rule
do unto others as you’d have them do to you
and the preacher said ‘burn that witch she made her bed’
Track Name: Thief of Dreams
Thief of dreams even the smallest can change history
Barrel rider everything rides on you
Story writer will the songs ever come true

Thief he screams lost in the bowels of the earth it seems
You clever little bragger everything rides on you
Shiny little dagger will help you see it through

Floating on a river taking you away from everything you’ve known
Talk of wealth and battle only make you shiver and long for home

Thief of friends even the wisest cannot see the end
So much desolation all has turned to dust
Steel determination bound by lust

Things are set in motion that nobody can stop until the songs are sung
Off to slay a dragon but there’s so much more that you have begun

Thief of dreams even the smallest can change everything
Track Name: Killin' Scene
I can’t find love it’s all I want I can’t lay blame
I been around the world Oh I seen some things
An innocent heart is a beautiful thing
But mine done dwelt too long on a killin scene

All that I want is for your heart to give to me
Well mine ain’t black but it’s too blue so this can’t be
An innocent soul is a beautiful thing
But mine has dwelt too long on a killin scene
Oh men why don’t you leave An innocent woman be

I been around the world more ways than one
Somewhere down the line I lost my only love
An innocent mind’s a beautiful thing
But mine done dwelt too long on a killin scene

Oh men why don’t you leave
An innocent woman be
It’s a killin a killin a killin scene
Track Name: Drac's Castle
When the ground beneath your feet
doesn’t seem to hold you safely anymore
you’ve lost control

Wheels on the street
never find a soul to meet
you’ve lost control

Just how far you’ll go
amazing just how far you’ll fall
just how far you’ll go

Cold stony feet shuffle
whisper through the trees
to find a soul to find a soul
Track Name: Life Too Long
Lord you made the days too long The phone don’t ring nothin’s going on
Lord you made the days too long
Lord you made my nights too long My bed is cold, I’m a bag of bones
Lord you made my nights too long
I don’t want to be remiss but something sure has gone amiss
Lord you made my life too long My house is empty, all my money’s gone
Lord you made my life too long oh
Too long too long….
Track Name: Rest Now Weary One
Lying alone on the bathroom floor
No one can hear you or come through the door
And you hate surprises they're never very nice
Looked in the mirror saw you were old
Living is harder than we were told
and we hate surprises they're never very nice

One pill made you too large another too bold
Lying on tile at the end of it all is so very cold

You claw your way back from the opening void
Too late now your mind’s destroyed
And you hate surprises they're never very nice
Sister what’s done this to you?
I came from the same place you do
and we hate surprises they're never very nice
What went thru your mind Where was your head?
No second chance To make amends

It’s hard for things to turn out as they should
When we were told we weren’t any good
And we hate surprises cuz they're never very nice
There’s no coming back from this one
No turning round the hands of time what’s done is done
Rest now weary one
Track Name: Dance of the Dead
We have been here before
I have crossed oceans of time
doing the dance of the dead with you
with you all for you all for you
Ancient grudges bear the strangest fruit
doing the dance of the dead with you all for you all for you
You fly too far now to say goodbye to say goodbye
I feel like I belong I feel like I belong
It’s so hard to say goodbye
