about

The Black Mariah Theater Kansas City, Missouri

The Black Mariah Theater is made up of twin sisters Sophia on vocals and guitar, and Analiese on drums. A Kansas city-based duo, The Black Mariah Theater's sound has been described as "eclectic." Mixing jazzy guitar tones with funky drum beats and angsty lyrics, old jazz comes into the modern world. Anyone with a broken heart and a bit of an attitude can relate to our songs. ... more

Track Name: Honey Stop
Honey, stop your evil staring
You think you’re piercing through my very soul
Stop the accusations
I’ll never tell you what you think you know
Honey, where have I been? Only where I said I’d go
Just stop your evil staring

Honey, stop your glaring
With me won’t get you very far
You think you’ll find out with that third degree?
Just gonna cross your arms and sigh
I know that I can be frustrating
I don’t know why you even try
Just stop your glaring honey

Oh, stop your staring
You use those questions like a loaded gun
You always think that I’m lying
I’ll tell you now you’ll never know for sure
You think you’ll settle this one with me?
I’ve been down this road before

Oh stop your crying
And don’t tell me not to slam the door
Stop the accusations
Ain’t gonna find what you’re looking for
Think you’ll settle this one, Honey no
Track Name: You're No Good
I know we used to have fun together
But I try not to think about that
I’ve heard that if you focus on the good ol' days
I’d never get you out of my head

I used to think that fate brought us together
I can be romantic like that, you know
But honey if I thought you’d do me any good
You’d be seeing me

I don’t want your arm around me
Don’t wanna hear your voice
I don’t waste time on second chances
There’s a reason we don’t talk anymore

I don’t mind seeing you hand in hand with her
Oh you know it’s nothing to me
It’s no coincidence that we don’t see each other
It’s not an accident we don’t speak

You knew be before I was broken hearted
Couldn’t know how it would change me
But honey if I thought you’d do me any good
You’d be seeing me
Track Name: Black Hearts
When we first met I looked you in the eye
And all thoughts seemed to vanish from my mind
Oh, black hearts for each of us
Honey there is no love lost

And I would sigh as violins would swell
But then I realized life with you is hell, oh
Black hearts for each of us
Honey there is no love lost

Oh, we’re always dancing
Between love and hate
I don’t know why you put me in such a state
We’re together, we’re apart
Hold my hand, break my heart
My black heart

I used to dream about the day we met
Those things you said I swore to never forget
Once in love, now we’re cynics
Out of love, and just left with our black hearts
Track Name: Emerald Cut
Boy if I leave ya
Good being with ya
But I just watch out for my heart

Got sick of waiting
Anticipating
and I just think we two should part

If I told you once, I told you a thousand times
Seems you're not with me when you're near
My heart can only wait for so long
So I put on a smile and that old emerald cut and forget about you, dear

There's nothing left of your old magic
Oh, how your words have lost their charms
There was a time they used to haunt me
but forever and always is, oh, such a long time when I don't want you here


You good for nothing
you're wanting something
but I can read between those words
Love made me sightless
but now I'm heartless
just basing things off what I heard

If I told you once, I told you a thousand times
Seems you're not with me when you're near
My heart can only wait for so long
So I put on a smile and that old emerald cut and forget about you, here

You good for nothing
still wanting something
I said I'd watch out for my heart

You didn't mean it
I should've seen it
Just leave me that old emerald cut
