about

Evasive Flowers Wichita, Kansas

Annie Adam's solo project, Evasive Flowers, emerged out of the tight knit early '10s Noise Scene in Wichita, KS. The music envelops the listener in minimal yet beautifully disorienting and haunting choral washes while brandishing a pop sensibility that makes the songs deeply hypnotic, with a beat that keeps one (albeit tapping) foot on the ground. ... more

Track Name: Medicine Man
Old medicine man, won't you please come in?
Old medicine man, won't you please come in?
Old medicine man, won't you please come in?
and help me get rid of these ghosts?

Got plenty a sage, got plenty a salt
They won't go away, tell me is it my fault?
Old medicine man, tell me what's to do

Who's talkin' to you, who ya talkin' to?
Is there sombody standin' there next to you?
Guess I already knew, but now you tell me it's true
I'm surrounded by these ghosts

Old medicine man, tell me what's the trick?
No matter what I try, they still seem to stick
Now I wonder if they've always been there
Just gotten meaner over time

Takin' over my house, takin' over my dreams
I fear what might be next - what does all of it mean?
Man, can somethin' be done, or am I doomed
To live here with these ghosts?
Track Name: Fall Guy
I don't think I understand myself anymore
Didn't think I could hurt anyone, but now I'm not so sure
See there's some evil been hidin' in my heart tryina' scratch it's way out for years
Maybe I'm just to sick to stop it
Maybe I just run outta fear
But I don't see the point in bein' good no more
No, I don't see the point in bein' good no more
No, I don't see the point in___________________

I picked you up for my own devices and let you think how you're inclined
Your desire to remain in control, is what kept you blind
There is nothing in my heart that ties me to you
We are symbiotic and that is all
I'll be done with you when Spring arrives, but you were simply perfect for the Fall
Oh, you were simply perfect for the Fall
And that is all.
Track Name: Ice Queen
So this is how you find your way
Keep pushing forward, don't look back
So each time I went asking you to stay
I stuck a knife right in your back
I see now why you had to get away
Leaving me was the only track
I was a pale gloss on a frozen lake
Reflecting everything you lack

So if you find that your heart's gone cold (gone cold)
Don't cry
Don't try to light a fire
Just remember all the pain you found
That first time that you came around
Remember all that killed off your desire

Your whiskey won't make me less sober
There's reason for things icing over
Fire water cannot break this ice
Your whiskey won't make me less sober
There's reasons for things freezing over
Fire water cannot break this ice

So if you find that your heart's gone cold (gone cold)
Don't cry
Don't try to light a fire
Just remember all the pain you found
That first time that you came around
Remember all that chilled off your desire.
Track Name: What I Saw
Let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go, let it go
You don't wanna know
I saw her there, fingers pressed to her lips
Flesh missing from hips
She said "Please don't tell anyone that you saw me here
I don't want him to find me.
Please, God, don't let him find me."

I wish I could explain to you just what I saw on the other side
I wish I could explain to you just what I saw on the other side

I've been to Hell and back
Well, not quite back
Maybe in time I'll be able to see the light

I wish I could explain to you just what I saw on the other side
I wish I could explain to you just what I saw on the other side
I wish I could explain to you just what I saw on the other side.
Track Name: Gone
I stopped wanting you to call me baby when you stopped wantin' to hear it from me
I don't know why you're so surprised when this is the way anybody would be
I swear I never wanted anything more than for you just to be my friend
but truth is you walked up in at the beginnin' actin' like it was the end

I just want you gone, gone, gone, gone, gone
I just want you gone, gone, gone, gone, gone
Miss Direction & me, me, me, me, me
Just want you gone, gone, gone, gone
I just want you gone

I swear I never wanted anything like this to happen at all
but you're no good for me, I know it, B,
Cuz all I want is to see you fall
I don't wanna see your face or hear your name or even have to look at your stuff
Look, if you haven't got the message, baby, listen to me,
I've had enough

I just want you gone, gone, gone, gone, gone
I just want you gone, gone, gone, gone, gone
I just want you gone.
Track Name: Change
You can change your mind anytime
And you do
I never know what you'll say
One night to the next day, but baby, it's ok
Cuz when you hold me, the world stops spinnin'
And when you make your way to kiss me
I get so, so, so dizzy

I can't stand it when you say that you're leavin'
I never know from one minute to the next if I'm
Celebratin' or grievin'
but I'll take whatever you're willin' to give
Cuz when you've only got one shot, that's the only way to live

Oh baby, please, please, please, please don't go
Cuz out of all this strife, you're the only good thing I know
And you can change your mind anytime
And you do.
