CHRIS PELLNAT - Secret No​.​8

from Before Braille Covers by VARIOUS ARTISTS



“Secret No.8” appears on the Before Braille sophomore LP “Kill the Messenger, Keep the Message,” released posthumously in 2009. Written by David Jensen with Rajiv Patel and Kelly Reed.

A newly mixed and mastered version is available now (released 8/8/22) under it’s originally intended, Korean title 비밀 8.



Persistent and flaunting, I’m fully aware
The calling is haunting, but always fair
Now heading upstairs, don’t blow your cover, heading upstairs alone
Be careful, the bullet didn’t miss by much at all
Specific and bashful, or nonchalant with despair
More flippant than agile
A secret we’ll share
The finger was pointed at you
The gun became the guest
The finger gripped your life
The gun did the rest
You’re torn between affliction and the cure
You’re torn between the price and the relevance
You’d sworn that you’d be proper, but it all depends
Before the storm you have to head to shore
(We had a lot in common, neither ‘one’ would stop ‘one’)
Before the storm you’ll be forewarned (you will conform) or learn why storms are formed
Should’ve felt the body in another way
Should’ve been familiar with the same mistake
What’s your forte
Sorry, but it’s gone in vain
Couldn’t feel my body in that mental state
A lot less to do but I have much more to say
(Had to feel her breathing to prove I was awake)
(Should’ve guessed I’d cave in under heavy weight)
Blood stained caution tape
Sudden, but it couldn’t wait
A mark of passion is risky when missed
Don’t judge the accuracy by the hits
Speak in secret or in foreign tongues
Most chances taken are not worth their rush
(Marks of passion)Been cursed to have them.
