about

The Vagina Lips returns with ‘’Οutsider Forever’’, his most indie album to date, an audio combo of his previous albums “Αthanasia’’ and ‘’Generation Y’’.

The album begins with the brightest track, ‘’I Don’t Want This Day to End’’, an ode to the grandeur and sincerity of love, with musical influences from Sarah Records. This is followed by ''Typical Standards'', an 80s rock song with unusual structure, as the chorus enters the middle of the song only once and the guitars, melodic as usual, do the 'dirty' job. Third in line the badass, “Let it Kill”. Dull cough, hoarseness, Talking Heads synths and influences from Viagra Boys’ style and groove. Accepting and embracing a personal reality not so pop, but grey and emotionally unstable. Last track on the first side is the homonymous "Outsider Forever". Shoegaze riffs, the tambourine sets the rhythm, over-optimism, the outsider wants nothing, expects nothing, just does his part. First song on the second side of the vinyl is ''Watered by Our Own Tears '' featuring vocals by Annajo. The second love song of the album, aesthetically derived directly from his album ''Athanasia''. This is followed by "Scared of Life, Afraid of Death'', which, like the next two closing tracks of the album ("Dark Circles Under Blue Eyes","Today I'm Brave"), moves to more post punk and dark wave sounds.

"Outsider Forever" echoes the message that even in the most difficult times, even in the darkest days, there are always things to celebrate, a place to be brave and a place to love yourself. Disaster followed by despair but I celebrate the death of a misogynist/there’s still fire inside my eyes. there’s still life and there’s still time, today I’m brave, I’m lost but thrilled/it all feels like an endless ecstasy.

Track Name: I Don't Want This Day To End
Sitting here by the sea
I'm in heaven
you lie next to me
I'm in heaven

Hand by hand
crazy for you, I can't help it
i know I sound cheesy but I can't help it

I know even true love
ends someday
I'm just glad that this day
is not today

And I swear to the moon
that I love you
the day is coming to an end
I love you

I don't want this day to end
Track Name: Typical Standards
My friends keep saying
I should grow up
I don’t know man
I can’t deal with that
It’s never enough
This feeling of bad luck
It’s never enough
I’m happily sad
It ain’t easy and you know it ain’t that hard
It is just a need and I don’t need that
It’s never enough
This feeling of bad luck
It’s never enough
Forever mad
Not a poet not a prophet not a god
Not a man of your typical standards
It’s never enough
This feeling of bad luck
It’s never enough
I’m happily sad
Track Name: Let It Kill
I’m not playing, I’m not playin’ any roles anymore
I’m not trying, I’m not trying to take control
I’m damaged to the bone and it feels like home
I woke up today and I woke up old
Like a normal boy, don’t feel like a normal boy

Let it out let it kill let it make you proud
Let it out let it kill this is a melt down
Let it out let it kill let it make you proud
Let it out let it kill, a nervous breakdown

Wasn’t made to wait, we were all made to fail
Life’s a time jail, enjoy it every day
I’m damaged to the bone and it feels like home
Wasn’t made to wait, we were all made to fail
Life’s a time jail, enjoy it every day
Like a normal boy, don’t feel like a normal boy

Let it out let it kill let it make you proud
Let it out let it kill this is a melt down
Let it out let it kill let it make you proud
Let it out let it kill, a nervous breakdown

Let it, let it, let it out
Track Name: Outsider Forever
Stronger than ever now
Ηaving more enemies than friends is who I am
Just a step away from being tamed
Barefoot in a field of love
Chasing my dreams away
I'm an outsider forever
And a day
It's who I am and I
Can't change,
don't want to change
And I want nothing
I want nothing
From you
Give me nothing
Give me nothing
Nothing's true
Track Name: Watered By Our Own Tears feat. Annajo
Summer breeze kissing your skin
Bodies melting like ice cream
When you dream you’re feeling real
We are flowers watered by our own tears
Love is love and I’m a home
Come inside I can fit you all
A relief that never comes
A relief, this is true love
Melting away
Track Name: Scared Of Life, Afraid Of Death
All this mess inside my head
I don't want it to end
It helps me knowing my place in the world
Like the earth's tinniest bird
Who just wants to sing
No one's gonna sing for me
Scared of life, afraid of death
I'm broken but I’m real

Repeat after me ‘’a loss is a loss''

Disaster followed by despair
But I celebrate
The death of a misogynist
Sometimes my soul feels so clear
Sometimes so nuclear
Sometimes I fear to feel

A sunset empty of skies
A revolution with no prize
Meet me at the finish line

Repeat after me ‘’a loss is a loss''
Track Name: Dark Circles Under Blue Eyes
A razor instead of a heart
A loaded gun instead of a god
Don’t hate me for being cracked
Dark circles under blue eyes
There’s still fire inside my eyes
There’s still life and there’s still time
Keep on pushing me to fight
And live for the second time
Second time
Memories of a distant home
Autumn leaves that survived the fall
I’ve been heartbroken for so long
Knowing right from wrong
There’s still fire inside my eyes
There’s still life and there’s still time
Keep on pushing me to fight
And live for the second time
Second time
I’ve been heartbroken for so long
