Eric Hild I used to passively be a fan of ERR, but after hearing "Protection" played live it clicked. It was such a fantastic performance have loved her music since. Favorite track: Protection.

Ice_Pick You lurk in a dark cloud and wait for the storm to break. Thunder shakes you and lightning blinds you, but the tension blankets you. You embrace this temporary hiding place, even though you’ll fall as a raindrop and disappear. That’s the feeling “Marked For Death” gives you. Favorite track: Hand of God.

Dean Martinez I saw Emma perform solo in Chicago 3/4/20 with Intronaut and cult of Luna. It was an amazing bare bones set. I really enjoy all her releases but Marked for Death holds a special place for me and now I’ve got the vinyl. Grab a ticket for this tour if you can to see her perform intimate solo versions of her songs.

MARKED FOR DEATH it was right that we did meet each other in each other’s eyes it was right that we did see each other in our shadow sides it was wrong then too that crazy love, loves crazy as it does and each of us and both of us so crazy; as it was who else is going to love someone like you that’s marked for death who else is going to be with you when you breathe your last who else is going to take my place and hold and keep you safe/sane who else is going to stay you were right on time to break your head and make the death bed you were right on time to crash those galaxies and flat-line you were right on time to make the light inside of me a life you were right on time to meet me, crazy love, and watch us die who else is going to love someone like me, that’s marked for death? who else is going to be with me when i breathe at all? who else would ever take your place and hold and keep me safe? who else would ever stay?

PROTECTION oh heaven sends him down to me and he’s got everything I'll ever need just for 16 days, i let him tie down the frailest part of my body i am small but in your arms you are colder in your heart i am worthless in your arms but you offer this protection no one else has given me you just keep talking down to me taking all of my hair pulled back i gave him 16 days i let him choke out the frailest part of my body hush now, here there is no trouble quiet down, you know that i have got you but I'm spinning out into a bottle where’s my connection to you it’s my protection

MEDUSA Medusa, nobody knows me like you failing forgiveness for all of the things you see you say: “nobody ever will touch you again” you say: “nobody ever will love you” for your eyes need us to be made so white all my life: I'm nothing Medusa, you come looking like Mother Teresa you come looking for daughters to please you you come blind Medusa, you want all of the world just to need you you want everyone here just to see you you make us blind you say: “nobody ever,ever will touch you again” you say: “nobody ever, ever will love you” you shot me down like you shot me down

HAND OF GOD I am a desperate love, always am needing it I wish the Hand of God would come and relieve me of this way I can’t touch anyone to touch without feeling somehow is always wronged to those who receive me in this way come, bring your sons and let them see come and lay them down in front of me I can’t do anyone right, I used to be somehow better some are just born to night some wear the scarlet letter I wish the Hand of God would cover the faces and cover the traces of lovers lost I wear the colors of Babylon into a world, dressed as the girl I know is gone I was true, I sang violins, touched and the like so slowly, the soft singing will leave you in time look through me now, see violence replaces the light I wish the Hand of God would cover the faces and cover the traces of lovers lost I wear the colors of Babylon into a world, dressed as the girl I know is gone

HEAVEN forever want to lay with you wanting dust to dust, to fade out you’re gone the only church I’ll ever see are paper hands calling me “come home, you’re done” I never was too pretty, just a spirit in this city now with no one at all but I’ve never come so far alone into something beautiful of my own design Heaven, I’m done if one and one and one are three: something in this life I’ll never see baby is gone the only church I’ll ever know is in the Earth, the ground below me says: “come home now, you’re done” I never was a pretty thing, always fight and sometimes scream for nothing at all and I've never come so far alone into something beautiful of my own design Heaven, I’m done Oh John, I can see Fire I can see your Work, the Flames grow higher I can See - i can See - i can See I can See in Heaven

SO, COME we forever were changed in this room where I have been living and in these years it’s been dangerous but I cannot help from receiving all the Spirits here they all say: “for now you must suffer so that we may live” all the Saints come down I wish they would now thought in time it has changed us all the room itself, it is breathing we forever are chained in what we have done, we have won we have given to the spirits here, who still call upon me, say “suffer so that we may live” So, come take back the old way take what’s not right take back the unborn child take it back

FURIOUS ANGEL you are pretty because your shotgun fills me up you are pretty because your knife twist lets my blood you, the one that I love you always were because - if I send you my army only you can disarm me if you won’t have me or bring me your love, furious angels reign death from above onto me you’re the one that I love, you always were because I was made of a storm, only you could bring me home hold out for what? I know I’m dreaming on and on hold out for why? we’ve said our last goodbye if you won’t have me or carry in rings everything broken is fixed when you sing to me “Oh Love, In Love”

REAL BIG SKY when They broke your body They broke your mind but with broken spirits you have always tried I watch you sleep,I watch you fade I will always keep the light on even though you can’t stay and you sing to me, you say I don’t want to be awake when It takes me but I can’t wait to see you smile on the Other Side I can’t wait to kiss the face of The Big Sky won’t you stay here for a while with me, my Child and you’re losing your vision, and you’re going blind what starts out in the night time follows you in the morning light I watch you sleep,I watch you fade I will keep the light on as you change even though you can’t stay and you sing to me, you say I don’t want to be awake when It takes me I won’t ever change my mind I can’t wait to kiss the face of The Big Sky I don’t want to say goodbye to you My Child
