about

Sometimes the 'invisible monster' is within ourselves, sometimes it's outside, trying to break in... and there are times when it's both internal and external. "These Words" from Allison Crowe's "Sylvan Hour" explores such chambers. Visually carrying us into the psychic underworld is cinema's original "Phantom of the Opera" - Lon Chaney so darkly brilliant in the 1925 film version of Gaston Leroux’s gothic novel.

“Sylvan Hour is truly a masterpiece” says pioneering culture blog Muruch. (www.muruch.com/2015/05/allisoncrowe-sylvanhour.html)

These Words

Words & Music by Allison Crowe

Hold my fears, take them
I don't want to see them ever again

You may not see, but I'm disfigured
distorted in my own head

hold my eyes, I don't wanna see
the pain that I have caused myself

but I could have run away, I could have hidden myself
but I run faster when I confront

these words
these chains that break me
these ropes that bind me when I try to be set free
these words repeated heartlessly

these words kill me, they kill me

like my conscience, just not a part of me
little demons released implanted inside my mind
they call out to me, they bring me down
they drag me across the stones and into the fire

these words
these chains that break me
these ropes that bind me when i try to be set free
these words repeated heartlessly

these words kill me, they kill me

and I never opened up, you know
and I'm not sure I would have even if you let me
I told you everything
but you'll never get to see the best of me

these words
these chains that break me
these ropes that bind me when I try to be set free
these words repeated heartlessly

these words kill me, they kill me
