about

Bashful Hips Nashville, Tennessee

Bashful Hips is an Avant Garde project from the mind of Ian Fellerman. Bringing his sometimes searing, sometimes hilarious but always poignant observations to bear over an entire stable of Noise Rock/Hip Hop informed Electronica, Ian's music is never stable, always changing and searching for the sound to express his feelings.

Track Name: 01.I'm Sure It's Complicated
Mood swings and restless feelings,

Exercise to burn my whole being,

Ask questions, be friendly, and try to place my chaotic energy

Be on the upswing of things, it’s easy when you were pushed so low

A punishment you gave me, I’ll live with it forever



How does that make you feel?

I’m sure it’s complicated; to me it doesn’t even feel real

To me it doesn’t even feel



I want to return to my earliest form,

But I get the chance to walk through a different door,

I’m always so damn unsure,

I wear my heart underneath long, long sleeves

Underneath wool sweaters,

I have a layer of cotton as armor
Track Name: 02.Connect
I can’t connect



And life is like sifting mold out of orange juice

You’re hoping for something sweet and hoping it doesn’t poison you



I want to be distracted, let’s be completely unattractive

I want to be distracted, would you distract me with your black hair and crooked smile?

Would you distract me for just a little awhile?
Track Name: 03.Hurt
I’m afraid I’ll never love again,

My friends say it changes when you’re older,

It’s not exciting like when you were seventeen,

And if everyone has a match, then I’m sad

That we haven’t started a fire



And it hurts that we can’t talk about it

And it hurts that it hurts



And I know there is no drug that could make me disappear

So I drink a lot of coffee, increase my inner fears

And I’ve thinned out to match the way I feel

But it doesn’t matter,

Because this last bit of weight represents that I’m still here
Track Name: 04.Shallow Lake
Mood swings and restless feelings,

Exercise to burn my whole being,

Ask questions, be friendly, and try to place my chaotic energy

Be on the upswing of things, it’s easy when you were pushed so low

A punishment you gave me, I’ll live with it forever



How does that make you feel?

I’m sure it’s complicated; to me it doesn’t even feel real

To me it doesn’t even feel



I want to return to my earliest form,

But I get the chance to walk through a different door,

I’m always so damn unsure,

I wear my heart underneath long, long sleeves

Underneath wool sweaters,

I have a layer of cotton as armor
Track Name: 05.Crab Waltz #1
I should of kissed you, but the moment didn’t feel right

We drank coffee on the second night, in a tiny diner

We talked and we built comfort, but I was only there for a couple days

A vacation away

It was a relationship that could go nowhere

Romance on a holiday, it’s so damn unfair

But it was the adult move, not the one I choose,

Not to move into you



Hey, just so you know, you’re the type of person I could fall for

Move to the beach and have a screen front door



We met in a bar I’d never been in before,

Awkward moment when you were alone

And you didn’t have a lighter

I gave you my seat

As I searched through my pockets that were filled with keys

As you sat down and lit your cigarette next to me

A sweet excuse for you to sit next me
Track Name: 06.Crab Waltz #2
And I enjoyed talking to you for hours about nothing at all

Your black and green eyes pierced my mind

And now I feel pierced all the time

And you were a reprieve from the past six months of my life

Just a small reprieve but now I’m back here



And I’m lucky for the special people who come into my life

Just get sad that they don’t spend that much time



Again at the airport, I’m half the man I was six months ago,

Your sweet southern accent still rings in my ears

Like the way your thin fingers comb through your bleach blonde hair

And you’re so damn beautiful with your feet hanging in the air
Track Name: 07.What To Do?
Why does waking up requiring falling down?

Awake to rain, lights grey

I have to work, glad I have to work because it’s Saturday



I wouldn’t know what to do with myself



Tired of writing pain, tired of looking like a coffee stain

Too many waves to much motion

Most of the time devoid of any kind of emotion



Read me like an open book,

Wishing someone had me like a salmon’s mouth on a fishing hook

Pull your Chinese pins out of me,

People like places get rusty
Track Name: 08.The Crime
Visualize a brand new life,

I’ve been waiting for some time to snap

Something happy, joyful, something to live for



I’ve lost faith in my fellow person

I’ve lost faith in what you call humanity

I’ve lost faith in my friends and family

I’ve lost faith in you and I don’t even know you



The holidays they trap me in a cell

Getting used to the feeling of never being understood

And I relate less now, the crime of wanting a better life

I’m going to start to visualize the life I wanted to lead

Every night before I go to sleep,

I’m going to visualize the life I want to lead
Track Name: 09.Constant Movement
I want to die most of the time,

I guess that’s not very attractive

So I called a suicide hot line, but the call got lost



I guess I want to die most of the time

Well constant movement can make things all right

Please don’t look me in the eye



Was it the booze and Ambien that made you go mad?

Was it my anti-depressant pills that kept me sad?

I wish what we had was more perfect



And I spill my guts on top of microphones

Whatever hits the floor I dance on them

But like I was dancing barefoot on stones
