about

Everson Poe Chicago, Illinois

Maxwell has been making music as Everson Poe since 2006, in many different genres and for many different reasons. The newest Everson Poe album is a departure from the previous venture into more pop-infused territory, and brings the music to a new plane of darkness and beauty. ... more

Track Name: Step Right Up
Ladies and gentlemen, we proudly present the true history of the tragic life and triumphant death of Julia Pastrana, the ugliest woman in the world.
Track Name: No One Can Imagine
We got Siamese twins and sheep with two heads
And a boy with the face of a fish.
And ghost trains and geeks
And the wild child of Borneo.
And armless wonders and legless wonders and limbless wonders
And parasitic twins.
Will wonders never cease?

We got mind-readers and Zulu dancers
And a man with elastic skin
And black girls joined at the hip.
Born into slavery
When Millie smokes, Christine coughs,
When Christine drinks
It’s Millie gets tight
And no-one can imagine how they make it through the night.

There’s a dog-faced boy from Bohemia
And a girl with the face of a cat
And I’ll guess your age
And I’ll guess your weight
Your middle name, your star sign
And the size of your hat!

We got Siamese twins and sheep with two heads
And a boy with the face of a fish.
And ghost trains and geeks
And the wild child of Borneo.
And armless wonders and legless wonders and limbless wonders
And parasitic twins.
Will wonders never cease?

We got mind-readers and Zulu dancers
And a man with elastic skin
And black girls joined at the hip.
Born into slavery
When Millie smokes, Christine coughs,
When Christine drinks
It’s Millie gets tight
And no-one can imagine how they make it through the night.
Track Name: La Llorona
No sé que tienen las flores Llorona,
Las flores del camposanto,
Que cuando las mueve el viento, Llorona,
Parece que están llorando.

No sé que tienen las flores Llorona,
Las flores del camposanto,
Tápame con tu rebozo, Llorona,
Porque tengo frío.
Track Name: By Moonlight Alone
Meet me by moonlight alone
And then, I will tell you a tale
Must be told by the moonlight alone
In the grove at the end of the vale
You must propose to come for I said
I would shew the nightflowers their Queen
Nay turn not away thy sweet head
’Tis the lovli est ever was seen

Meet me by moonlight alone,
Meet me by moonlight alone.

Daylight may do for the gay,
The thoughtless, the heartless, the free
But there’s something about the moon’s sky,
That is sweeter to you and to me,
Oh! remember be sure to be there
For tho’ dearly a moonlight I prize
I care not for all in the air
If I want the sweet light of your eyes

So meet me by moonlight alone,
Meet me by moonlight alone.
Track Name: Cinderella
Achenputtel war immer mit Schmutz bedeckt
Sie wünschte sich trotzdem zum Ball
Bevor sie den Prinzen heiraten durfte,
musste sie den Linsen aus der Asche abholen,
immer glücklich zu leben danach.

Cinderella was always dirty
but she wanted to go to the ball.
She had to pick all the lentils
Out of the ashes, before she could
Meet the prince and marry happily
Ever after.
Track Name: The Ugliest Woman In The World
Wanna know what it’s like to fuck a monster?
Wanna know what it’s like to own her heart and soul
from the tip of her toes to the top of her hideous head?
Wanna know what it’s like to fuck the ugliest woman in the world?
Wanna know what it’s like to fuck the dead?
Track Name: To The Garden Of Happiness
Al jardín de la alegría
Quiere mi madre que vaya
Por ver si me sale un novio
El más bonito de España
