Eve 6 – “black nova” – grim value

One of my favorite punk/emo band (with the best name – go “X Files) has a new EP out after what seems like years.  Again, Eve 6 has filled their new song, “black nova”, with tongue twisters and flights of fancy.  Eve 6 is the band whose lyrics were always what English majors would write, actually making literature to describe the heartache of being human and, maybe, even in love. Max Collins (lead vocals/bass) and Jon Siebels (guitar, backing vocals) formed the band with Tony Fagenson (drums) in 1995.  Fagenson retired in 2018 and was replaced by Ben Hilzinger.  The fact that the guys are still rocking is amazing.  I love this band.  Collins is such an unusual vocalist, singing as if he is Jeremiah proclaiming the coming of the Lord.  I say, preach on guys.  I need you.  Please see the lyrics below:

hey black nova hey black nova make it slam make it slam wayward jehova ask for a Corona in the ambulance it’s turbulent it’s getting turbulent when you take flight it gets turbulent a flight like this is permanent and ya know it only takes one time to get you and you know when death comes to fetch you from the lawn of the mansion of the damned with a yawn and kink in his back you gotta kick that smack siphon Johnny siphon Johnny redirect that line it’s the main one honey the main one gonna get you dead this time turbulent it’s getting turbulent when you take flight it gets turbulent a flight like this is permanent
