about

King Kong and the Bleeding Hearts New Jersey

King Kong and the Bleeding Hearts is the lo-fi psych-pop musical project of Craig Koniges. Occasionally performed with a full band or alone with a loop pedal, it mixes elements of classic rock, folk, noise, beatboxing, and a healthy lack of professionalism. This bandcamp is also home to Craig's older releases under his own name. ... more

Verse 1
D C G G

Well nothing seems the same
it's all mixed up in my brain
as I watch the colors
bounce off one another

Bridge 1
G F F/G/F E (4x)

Verse 1 chords
and a smile floats across your face
as the world leaves no more trace
and the colors flow out of my fingertips
floating through the air like ships

Bridge 1 chords

oh I will die
sometime tonight
oh I will die
sometime tonight

Verse 2
A G C D

well my eyes are playing tricks on me
nobody else knows what's happening
my pulse quickens, my heart skips a beat
a thousand mirrors smash and my mind begins to scream

repeat verse 2 for solo

and we all go, (laughs)

Bridge 2

Bridge 1 chords

oh I will die
sometime tonight
but don't you pass out in fright
cause you'll be alright

Verse 2 chords

All these faces now seem so strange
the laughter crawls on their lips and just hangs
piercing my soul, which escapes me
there are so many things I wish I could un-see

Bridge 2
end on A
Track Name: Don't Know How to be Happy
What am I feeling
when you're around when you're when you're around
what is its meaning
when you're when you're around when you're around
why aren't I crying
when you're around when you're around when you're around
why aren't I dying
when you're around when you're around when you're around

well I just don't know how to be
happy
well I just don't know how to be
happy

Opening Riff
G G/C Bb Bb/C

Verse Riff
G G Bb Bb
Hey guys come check out this new show
It's at a place you don't know
the blogs are sucking their dick tonight
won't you just take a bite

C C
just don't have fun at all

G (repeat single stricken note)

(chords are repeated as same in 2nd half, with breakdown in between)

The band's saying something you don't get
wrapped up in a 15 minute set
They want to make a real statement
inside a college student's basement

whatever you do, don't have fun at all!
Track Name: Othering Part 1
In meiner Stadt find Ich es gut genug aber immer fühle Ich, Ich soll aus dem Zug fahren einmal weg nach ein anderem Land wie Hesse oder Goethe haben oft getan.

Es ist hier so kalt in mein Kopf in mein Herz also fahren mir weg nach ein anderen Welt. Es ist mir egal ob es existiert, Ich brauch' nur Erleuchtung ohne Inhalt zittiert.
Track Name: Othering Part 2
riff (notes)
E fffffe AAAABBBBGGGG

Ooh, lemme take your picture, back home we ain't got nothin' like yah!
Mmh, tell me where you come from, I ain't got culture could you maybe spare some?
Ooh, can't you feel that breeze? Warm air flowing through exotic trees
Mmh, I'm sure I could live here, if only I wasn't such a boring square

chorus (chords)
E E B G A/B E

Take me away from this boring old place
I'm sure you all have so much grace
and that I'm not just fetishizing
the other or something

riff
Ooh, what do you believe, I think that only you truly see
Mmh, could I blend in here? If I started copying your hair?
Ooh, that's a nice tradition, I'll use it in my poetic fiction
Mmh, now I am enlightened, everybody give me some recognition

chorus
Take me away from this boring old place
I'm sure you all have so much grace
and that I'm not just fetishizing
the other or something
Track Name: Silver Eyes

You are, the one, with the silver eyes
and I was just kinda hoping those eyes would stare into mine

maybe just for a little bit of time

verse
and I was just kinda feeling a little lonely
and I was just kinda thinking you could maybe spend some time with me
we could go get some breakfast and a cup of coffee

hang on E-E7 during buildup, switch from fingerpicking to strumming

E-E7 E-E7 A-A7 E-E7
I see something bright
A-A7 A-A7 E-E7 E-E7
when your eyes look into mine
B7 A-A7 E-E7 E-E7
maybe it'll work out this time
