about

“Wake up because they rise in the night of the living half dead, made of miracles.”


The Half Dead Ep is CATAPHANT's first EP under a new moniker and evolved song writing process. Originally a folk song writer, CATAPHANT collaborated with gifted producer and long time collaborator Ohmega Watts to produce a more eclectic, electronic sound that is closer to the diverse set of influences that shape her musical creativity. The project was recorded in Chicago, Seattle and Los Angeles. 


Thematically, Half Dead explores the idea that life can ultimately come from death when it’s walked out in faith that a higher power holds both in the balance.

“The Half Dead EP was written during one of the darkest years of my life. I was grieving the breakdown of several key relationships within my family and community, resurfacing & un-dealt-with past trauma, and overwhelming disillusionment with where life had brought me. I felt the death of certain hopes, dreams, and ideals cloud my once bright vision. At the onset of this season, I knew that if I let myself be overcome with despair I would be crippled by it for years to come. I used song writing as a means to process pain as well as declare, out of faith, that the emotional death I was experiencing at the time would ultimately lead to life. Using Jesus as my example and anchor, I musically documented what I learned about being healed, redeemed, and resurrected. “

Track Name: Wake Up
Can you hear me
When the son calls
Can you see me
when the night falls.
Track Name: Because
[V1]
Because the days go on,
and so should I
‘cause there’s nowhere to go but up from here
because I haven’t seen
what I believe
but I know, I know it’s coming

[V2]
Though it’s not for me
though I bleed
Though you slay me,
because it’s making me
whole again
and brand new
Each day that I die,
I trust in you
Each day that I die,
I trust in you.

[V3]
But for all those who seek
for family
though it’s not for free
it all recedes
I’m whole again
and brand new
each day that I die,
I trust in you
each day that I die,
i trust in you

[Pt. 2]
(Days go on, you were there)
All along,
I belong to you
All along
You were good to me
Track Name: They Rise
[V1]
As I wander through the desert
the storm is at my back
everything I’ve ever feared
everything I’ve ever lacked
freedoms call burns red
turn and face the sun
truth is a still tower
don’t fall don’t run

[chorus]
In still water in clear skies
with the sand, with the sand in my eyes
in still water in clear skies
I will stand, I will stand til I die
Like I’ll rise, Like I’ll rise when I die

[V2]
He is the bridge between
what I know and what I see
what I feel and what I believe
In the calm and urgency
He is my guarantee
When I have nothing
I have everything
When I have nothing
I have everything

[Chorus]
[Bridge]
As the world goes mad
I face the firing line
salvation floods my mind
like a crown on my head
like a banner blowing in the wind
I know the place I’m standing in,
standing in.

[Chorus]
[v2]
Track Name: In the Night of the Living
Can you hear me,
when the son calls?
Can you see me,
when the night falls?
Track Name: Half Dead Ft. JGivens
[v1]
Half Dead on the way up
Ammo’s all been cleared out
Man, you’re really killing me
But I love a chance to turn the tide
So come at me swinging, looking for a fight
Burry my weapons in the ground,
You can’t take what I lay down

[Chorus]
Nobody takes my life (x4)
I lay it down for you (x4)

[v2]
I beat you to the punch
With a heart that softens the blow
And you can’t stop my gentleness
And I’m going to love you to death

[Chorus]

[J Givens]
Death is the start of the next
part
See a star go from Hova
To solar
To land on the land like a rover
To supernova
to roll stone over
shake the spigot
Celebrate mine on the day of the dead
But tell her, "Take wine to the table of bread"
Now, what's homicide if I lay it instead?
She said, "Suicide."
So I says to Mabel, I says
Have you ever seen a dead body
Dig calmly from the root of a palm tree to the tip top
And did not stop
Drop
roll the rock
Woah
Like a black rob zombie
Necro-hip hop
Friendships sail farther
If you start em with martyrdom
Guard em with all that you g-got
Trade noose for a slip knot
And slip not
tied you to the author of time rock
Tick tock
What matters to the wings of a scavenger starving
Like artist
Between a cadaver and carcasses scattered
Is one brings synthetic means to and end
Life springs from the latter
