about

Holy Broken was recorded in the winter of 2009 in Marshall, NC , in a cabin at the end of a dirt road. The songs are unerringly Sin Ropas: scratchy, catchy melodies, sick and glorious guitar, rickety pianos, fallen down drums, and otherworldly, junkyard sounds. But where Sin Ropas usually remains dark, this time there’s light crackling through the seams, illuminating all that’s beautiful and terrifying.

Track Name: The Fever You Fake
The Fever You Fake

Thundering in like it’s something you need
Balancing whispers with rumbles all around
Start to dissolve
Facing facing the sea

All of these fevers are floating around
like ghosts that are dancing much better than you
Spin by you spin by you all revolving and bold

You never really close your eyes
You don’t realize
You’re slipping away
You’re wavering on the wire
You’re slipping away

Remember the trails that we would mess to
Again with the wings when they wouldn’t turn around
Objection evasion fiction and lust
At the wheel

You never really close your eyes
You don’t realize
You’re slipping away
You’re wavering on the wire
You’re slipping away

Come tonight for the miracle in town
When you’re calm and a wreck
And you need some eyes to look through
You know you’re there
You know you’ll drag it in
With a fever you fake
Track Name: Folded Uniforms
Folded uniforms

In a room at Canal Street
Sharing fear and some time to keep
There were so many doors to keep shut
With an ending like a riverbed

Spills for chatter
And a run to the gate
Took the dog to look for what he needs
Search the drawer he’s already been through
Filled up with folded uniforms

And you’re shoving goodbyes away
And I’m leaning on a photograph
Did you know you were giving it back
On a walk with a friend and a gun

Sleeping in a train at the station
Her hair glows through a wind shattered window
The train rocks as it’s nudged by giant
She wakes him as the train pulls away

Then you’re shoving goodbyes away
And I’m leaning on a photograph
Did you know you were giving it back
On a walk with a friend and a gun

And you try to dam the live
And you see right through
Un-required
And you see right through
Many doors
And you see right through
Track Name: Unchanged the Lock
Unchanged the Lock

Hanging out the window are you coming out
Denied is good enough to kill tonight
Crawl through rips in lives
The lines are suddenly in my mouth

So loud the world is knotted in her mind
Falling through one narrow look at the meaning of
There’s no sound coming out
This light shines through your narrow smiling lips

Waking up under the sun again
Holding firm
Firm and unchanged
The lock’s still around
Screaming eyes welded on

Crawling through and ignoring it
The pace you’re meant for
Soft and low visions spew
You screw your thumbs like a modern
An hour it’s a common addiction
And longer like a wasp in the blender
Aware that there’s a code in the roof of your mouth

I was delay
I was an emergency stop
Prehensile stare
Turns into the fist you clinch
You don’t laugh don’t laugh don’t laugh

Piled up in a rustic myth
Corner bag again
No no no
Don’t sing me that again
Track Name: Stolen Stars and Lights
Stolen Stars and Lights

One night my eyes were filled with stolen
Stars in streams ripples in my vision
Wet and reeling galaxies of water
Star curtain ruptured by clocks and curses

Smothering smiles
Pills and cakes were raining
Right on time back the car into the gully
So tired of the time that they were keeping
Stumbling in extending invitations

Leave
Here is where you leave it
Leave
Here is where you leave it

Stealing light
What good is stealing light
From another star

One night my eyes were filled with stolen
Stars in streams ripples in my vision
Wet and reeling galaxies of water
Start curtain ruptured by clocks and curses

Leave
Here is where you leave it
Leave
Here is where you leave it

Stealing light
What good is stealing light
From another star
Track Name: X Is For Christmas
X Is For Christmas

In bed with fever laid
Face in fire hands were hate
White rope hangs down from above

Hair still trailing in the womb
Crimson pony what they're for
Lonely lonely threesome fair

Xis for Christmas
In silent dreams
A borrowed sleigh
X is for Christmas
By moonlit pharaoh silk is made

In granite eyes
Smiles fail and
Cornered we were
Ahab's whale

Shouting all new golden thought
Kneeling on some tender neck
Stooped in fury hurry home

In a car and all alone
Lift it up and turn it on
Diamond arrow pierce your need

X is for Christmas
In silent dreams a
Borrowed sleigh
X is for Christmas
By moonlit pharaoh silk is made
Track Name: Nailed In Air
Nailed in air

I could be you
All along I fled your trail
You let me in
Told me I was wrong
I move into town

Midnight roofing by your tongue
Wounded I was wearing lead
Collar firm the autumn moon
Hanging over you

Once you told me how to fall
Once you showed me how to fall

In the sink the dots appear
I feel dizzy warming
To the advance

Careful strain
Silent water half invisible
Consecrate
Come in crisis empty hands

She’s a comma
Nearly silent
Drag me to our
Thousand flaws to separate

Once you showed me how to fall
Once you showed me how to fall

In the sink
The dots appear
I feel dizzy
Warming to the advance
Track Name: Plastic Furs
Plastic furs

Little mess of time
In a box you keep
On your tongue the slow breath and dying
Sun would disappear

Everything is mouse gray
Shiver black and urgent fingers
In the cake like sorrows
In your hair
Plastic furs and rouge
Scuffle in the hall

Let me down let me down
Let me count the antidote you’re stealing
Let me break the mirror show the stain
The plastic fur
Let me count the antidote you’re stealing
Let me down
Let me break the mirror showed the stain
The plastic fur

Little box of time
In a cage you keep
On your tongue the slow breath and dying
Sun would disappear

Let me down let me down
Let me count the antidote you’re stealing
Let me break the mirror show the stain
The plastic fur
Let me count the antidote you’re stealing
Let me down
Let me break the mirror showed the stain
The plastic fur
Track Name: Holy Broken
Holy broken

Tell me how this fits
With the fits you’ve been in
Push me out of bed
Push me to the door

Recognize me
Rip the package open
Holy broken
Holy broken

Still looking in
Sucked and beckoning
I will not move
From eyes to close

Tell me how you knew
We were friends then
Crawling through a cave
Wet from your decline

Still looking in
Sucked and beckoning
I will not move
From eyes too close to call

Tell me how this fits
With the fits you’ve been in
Holy broken
Holy broken
