Eliza and the Organix New York

Eliza and the Organix is the brainchild of songwriter and guitarist Eliza Waldman and features Kristen Tivey on the alto saxophone and John Gergely on drums. We're a little bit crazy, a little bit off-beat, and always intense. If you like jazz, madness, and irony mixed with your rock, you've come to the right place.

Track Name: Dervish
What would you have me do?
Lie down and die?
With sand in my hair
And thorns in my side

Boy, you're going topsy turvy
Whirling round the round-about
There goes the dervish whirling
Down

Boy, you're going topsy turvy
Whirling round the round-about
There goes the dervish whirling
Down

I am empty
As the sea
Get away
Just get away from me

If I am the sea
Then you are a stone
And together we stand
Together alone

Our faces are hard
They are bleak and they are bare
Still I love
The silver in your hair

Boy, I'm going topsy turvy
Whirling round the round-about
And there goes the dervish whirling
Down

Boy, you've got me topsy turvy
Whirling round the round-about
There goes the dervish whirling
Down
Track Name: Cold Comfort
A late night
In early May
In the mud
I found my way

And it's a cold comfort
A cold comfort
A cold comfort
Indeed

Took a shower
Got clean
Lit my pipe up
With benzene

And it's a cold comfort
etc...

All the screamers
On the coast
Will tell you lies
I raise a toast

It's a...

Got a heart-ache
Got saved
I lost my papers
Start again

It's a...
Track Name: Love Song (Face Down In The Dirt)
I want
What I can't have
And I want
You

You, you
All of you
I want
You

This is my love song, love song
To the ground, so fair and round
Bringing me down
Bringing me down

This sound
That you hear
Is the sound of my
Desire

Seeds of ire
Of my desire
Sown in a bed
Of fire

This is my love song, love song
To the moon, so out of tune
Watching me now
Watching me frown

I want
What I can't have
And I want
You

You, you
All of you
I want
You
Track Name: Legend of the Beast
In a frozen lake
Deep beneath the castle
Some forbidden creature
Stirs

Why do you hunt the beast?
Why do you hunt the beast?

From within the abyss
Come ungodly cries
Why do you disturb my slumber?
Why, the beast cries

The beast has no need for your gold or your kings
The beast has no hoard for your plunder
The beast has no reason to rattle its cage
The beast is content in its slumber

In a silky field
Out beyond the castle
The leaves are turning brown
The world is curling down

Why not dream of sheep
Why not dream of roses
Why not let it sleep

Why do you hunt the beast?
Why do you hunt the beast
Now
Track Name: Let Me Have This
Clear out my eyes
'cause I need, need to see
You sit by the edge of the water
And look at me

Let me have this
Let me have this
Let me have this
One, one precious

Let me have this
Let me have this
Let me have this
One, one precious thing

Walk through the walls
Of my mind, space and time
In through the waves, going out
I can feel something shine

In the blue dawn
I am rolling on the floor
Tell me some lies
I can't take anymore

Let me have this
Let me have this
Let me have this
One, one precious

Let me have this...
Track Name: The Autumn Has Arrived
The autumn has arrived
All cold and hollow-eyed
And I tilt my hat to the sky
Pray for rain

So these truths can be said

He's just a boy, the prodigal son
Jack of all trades, master of none
Turn and look the evil you've done
Turn and see the evil you've done

I float, I float like water
I sink, I sink like stone
The pieces of my puzzles
Are mine, and mine alone

You laid me down to rest
My head against your chest
With cold arms and cold hands
Cold desire in poor demand

So these truths can be said

I float, I float like water
I sink, I sink like stone
The pieces of my puzzles
Are mine, and mine alone

The autumn is now here
And we are filled with fear
Lie to shiver in our linens
The red letter creeping into

Our skins...
Our skins...
Our skins...

The autumn is now here
And we are filled with fear
Lie to shiver in our linens
Lie to shiver
Track Name: The Bazaar
The market! The market!
The bazaar
Come out and see it
Wherever you are

The sights, the sounds,
The noise, the smells
Fiends and devils from
The pits of hell

Against a backdrop of
Fiddle, bass, and strings
Stands the monkey man
And his tambourine

Dance, monkey,
Dance
Learn to stick a dollar
Down your pants

Sing, monkey,
Sing
You know how I love it
When that little bell rings

Dance, monkey...

With bare feet! The sand!
Is in our hair!
With bare feet! The desert!
Will strip us bare

His club foot lurches,
His timid eyes shine
He lifts his head to sing
praises to the skies

Against a backdrop of
Fiddle, bass, and strings
Stands the monkey man
and his tambourine

The market! The market!
The bazaar
Come out and see it
Wherever you are

The sights, the sounds,
The noise, the smells
Fiends and devils from
The pits of hell

Dance, monkey,
Dance
Learn to stick a dollar
Down your pants

Sing, monkey,
Sing
You know how I love it
When that little bell rings

Dance, monkey...
Track Name: Wanderer
I am not a wanderer
I am not a prince
I am not a wanderer
I have killed men

And I don't
Know the way
I don't
Know

I am not a wanderer
I am not a prince
I am not a wanderer
I have killed men

And I don't, I don't
Know the way
I don't, I don't
Know

And I don't, I don't...
Track Name: I Just Wanna Dance
Just let me go, the man cried
It's true you took me for a long ride
But I just wanna dance
I just wanna dance

Some people say that
The only way to
Achieve what you dream is to
Say what you mean

And I just wanna dance
I just wanna dance
I just wanna dance
I just wanna dance

Lost in your fixtures
Your numbers, your pictures
Your angels, your demons
Your prizes and your semen

And I just wanna dance
I just wanna dance
I just wanna dance
I just wanna dance

If you don't know where to
Go when you're lost, then just
Sit by the side of the road
Don't get caught, you will

Know by the feel of the
Rain on your face that you're
In the right time, you're just in
The wrong place

And I just wanna dance
I just wanna dance
I just wanna dance
I just wanna dance
Track Name: Fanciful You
You
You ride
Your horse
All around the town

You
You bring
your baby
To term

Why didn't you pick me?
Why didn't you pick me?
Why didn't you pick me
I've been waiting here

You
In your big hat
You
With your fine gloves

You
You eat
Your snickers bar
With a knife and fork

Why didn't you pick me?
Why didn't you pick me?
Why didn't you pick me
I've been waiting here
Track Name: Lullaby For Fools
The party's over
And the guests have had their fun
It's close to dawn now
And our tired eyes search for the sun

We shared a bottle
And linked arms beneath a sea of stars
You smiled so gently
And you held me tightly in your arms

Hold me, hold me
Like a rag doll in your arms
Smile so brokenly
Remind me of your bitter charms

Hold me, hold me
Like a rag doll in your arms
Bind me, remind me
That time cannot heal our scars

You told me of your plans
You wished me no ill
You had no secrets
For cynicism cannot kill

And I told you stories
But I held the truth at bay
Love is beautiful
but we all have a part to play

And I, I need so badly to believe
I, I need so badly to believe
I, I need so badly to believe
I, I need so badly to believe

We drank the dregs
And when the bottle was all dry
We drank the bitterness
And left like dogs to lie

Your touch was infinite
Our bodies had no end
Until the morning came
Bitter and sick

Hold me, hold me
Like a rag doll in your arms
Smile so brokenly
Remind me of your bitter charms

Hold me, hold me
Like a rag doll in your arms
Bind me, remind me
That time cannot heal our scars

And I, I need so badly to believe...
