about

The band masterfully blends visual, artistic influences with unique sonic landscapes once again on the heart¬ wrenchingly beautiful, "Heal Him Now." "I was staring at a drawing of a skeleton that hangs in my studio and thought of the man that he once was," says Nice. "It was Halloween, the music came, then the words. The bones of 'Heal Him Now' were born later to be beautifully arranged and produced by Richard (a.k.a., The Mighty One).

"Humans want to help those in need, those that hurt," she continues, "but sometimes, for immediacy sake, or for lack of knowledge, we treat only wounds we can 'see' not the ones that lie deep inside. Those wounds are sometimes unreachable. Although sad, there is honor in caring, in the attempt to heal those you love.”

lyrics

Heal Him Now

Under the water
a river of pain
we bandage him but
injury remains

We will try
and try yet again
until the task
becomes to us mundane

Heal him now heal him now
Tears on his pillow
but makes no sound

Quietly listen, for his bones are aching,
Perhaps the scratch is bleeding again
sweet friend of mine, it’s one road away
if we go…we can try to ease his pain

Heal him now heal him now
Tears on his pillow
but makes no sound

Heal him now heal him now
Look for the wounds
they can’t be found

Heal him now heal him now
Tears on his pillow
but makes no sound

Heal him now heal him now
Look for the wounds
they can’t be found

The story is inspired by the skeletal system front, back and profile illustration
I have framed and hanging in my studio.
I thought about human physical pain we have but
how the deepest wounds are never physical.
