Tracks that Puppeteer references:


Hello my darling dear
I’ve always been right here
Waiting for you, waiting for you
What’s that, my darling dear?
Suddenly I can’t hear you
Cat got your tongue?

Puppeteer, puppeteer
There’s no need to fear
Puppeteer, puppeteer
You're my love, the one I hold so dear

I’m known to be the one (you're slipping away)
Who’s always good with love (i can't hold on)
I make purrfect matches both red and pale (to you)
There's no room for mistake (we’re falling apart)
I never miscalculate (why won’t you hold)
I could never fail (to me)


So what is this sinister feeling?
Why do you insist on disappearing?
Why do I black out on a whim,
Then wake some place I’ve never been?
Where are you, my darling dear?
Suddenly I can’t hear at all
Cat got your tongue?

Puppeteer, puppeteer
What of you should I fear
Puppeteer, puppeteer
Suddenly nothing is so clear

Lapses in memory as
Your darkness takes hold of me
The screams of damned fall on deaf ears
A bittersweet melody only I can hear
Is this pity or is this love?
Or is my decision one I’m not a part of?
Logic begs for me to get away
But how do I live without you beside me?

Puppeteer, Puppeteer
Now you’re here, I see you crystal clear.

jumbled mess :))

Puppeteer, Puppeteer
I’m paralyzed with fear
Puppeteer, Puppeteer
You’re my love, the one I hold

You’re slipping away, I can’t hold on to you
We’re falling apart, why won’t you hold to me
You’re slipping away, hold on.

Artist commentary:


This song has gone through three lyrical overhauls (the third was becuase the song I created got too personal), two instrumental overhauls, and a shift from "real" instruments to virtual instruments. It's a mess. I wanted to focus on something of the dynamic between Kurloz and Meulin, especially all the gross mind-control stuff. I wanted to give lots of double meanings to the text, too, because puppeteer, nothing means what you think it means, la-di-da. So. Puppeteer. The end.

Vanessa Auqué:

For the track art I wanted to focus more on Meulin being controlled, so I chose to show her as a cross between a puppet and doll, as a nod to all the mind controlling and chucklevoodoo stuff going on with Kurloz. She gets her mind broken into and toyed with like it's no big deal, by none other than her closest friend, for who knows how long, and then lights some catnip with him afterwards. It's a mixture of creepy and cute, just like them. For the background I chose to use bright purples to give it more of a glow-y, neon, big-brother-is-looking-into-your-soul vibe, as well as make reference to Kurloz.

Give up your mind and jump into the void.
