It seems impossible to have peace between eachother in our small divided communities. It even seems impossible to find peace within ourselves. It's hard to feel at peace with the band "Black Dresses", something that was very loved and which was our life's work every day until it no longer could be. We believe that one human cannot survive alone, and we like the sound of the word "peace", but should we really look to find "peace"?

This song was composed and recorded in November 2019, a time of great turmoil for everyone involved. ESPer99, having been coerced out of their LA sublet by repeat SWATings, joined us for a month in our new Hamilton apartment. While ESPer99 & Rook finished the album rook&nomie – me&you, this triune collaboration took shape as well.

Black Dresses "WASTEISOLATION" came into the world on Easter weekend 2018, which is when Christ was Crucified and burned in Hell for three days. Black Dresses was Born Into "Death".

Now under The Great Conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter on the Winter Solstice of 2020, where the two planets allign in our view and appear as one, creating a rare event called "The Christmas Star" or "The Star of Bethlhem" in reference to the astrological event that guided wise men to the newborn Son Of G*d.

Black Dresses has completed the cycle and travelled from "Death" and into "Birth".

Thank you for joining us. Forgive us for our transgressions in this extremely turbulent time. Please at least find forgiveness for yourselves. Please enjoy this singing dancing colorful light and darkness.

Sincerely,
Black Dresses

lyrics

(devi)
World peace

(rook + devi)
World peace world peace world peace

(devi)
What do we do?
When it's this hard to go on
Grinded down to the bone
Grinding further than bone
All the way to the soul
Never had that much soul
These wounds that won't heal
When I'm all out of hope

(all)
What do we do?
(devi)
When it's this hard to go on
Grinded down to the bone
Grinded further than bone
All the way to the soul
Never had that much soul
All these wounds that won't heal
When I'm all out of hope
(rook)
Hope

(devi)
Childish dreams feel so painful
Falling tears
Sparkling
(rook)
rainbow
(all)
Desperate prayers
Porcelain angels
Aching hearts feel so shameful

(ESPer99)
I'm center stage
Dead Jesus age
Just turn the page
I'm gone
This doleful clown
Is breaking down
So serious
It hurts
This regimen
We're taking in
Of vapor trails
And tv meals
It's all the same
We're not to blame
I want peace world peace motherfucker

(rook)
Okay

(rook)
20 20 20 20
I dream
Of something more than what's here
Of something bigger than this
Of something bigger than fear
There's nothing bigger than fear
The purgatorial conditions
Of the steps we take to live (To live)
What gives? (What gives?)
What's wrong? [Stop it] (What's wrong?)
What's real? [Stop it] (What's real?)
Too much [Stop it] (Too much)
Too fast [Stop it] (Too fast)
[Stop it] To deal with it (Deal with it)
Deal with it (It's cool,)
Deal with it (I don't really mean it)
Deal with it
World peace (World peace)
World peace motherfucker

(devi)
What do we do
When it's this hard to go on?
(devi + rook)
Grinded down to the bone
Grinding further than bone
(devi)
All the way to the soul
(devi + rook)
Never had that much soul
(devi)
These wounds that won't heal
(devi + rook)
When I'm all out of hope

World peace
World world world world world world world peace
(devi)
World peace
World
World peace
(rook)
Sorry,

(all)
Childish dreams feel so painful
Falling tears
Sparkling
(rook)
rainbow
(all)
Desperate prayers
Porcelain angels
Aching hearts feel so shameful

(devi)
World
World peace
(rook)
World peace
...worldpeace
