Artist: Catman Cohen

Final Confessions I + Zero ~ Catman Cohen

Catman Cohen is the mysterious, controversial Canadian creator of the music trilogy, “The Catman Chronicles,” a collection of songs that have themes related to life, death, and dreams. Described as Post-Decadence Rock, Cohen’s songs spring from a foundation of social activism, primarily in calling for a resurrection of neglected heroes (e.g., nurses, paramedics, teachers, firemen, universal peace-keepers, environmentalists, human rights activists, animal rights activists, etc.); a plea for assistance to those without adequate food or health care; and a cry for urgent remedial efforts to preclude an imminent fresh water crisis.

In October, 2011, Catman Cohen will be releasing his 4th CD entitled, “Confessions of a Shadow,” featuring his new opening track, “The Final Confessions I + Zero.”

Very little is known about Catman Cohen. To date, his only publicity consists of shadow photos and his official bio excludes data such as birthdate, birthplace, and other personal details. He believes artists MUST step into the background in order that society can shift its spotlight onto various key vocations (especially nursing) that are in crisis. He turns down interviews, instead requesting that a list of social activist friends be considered in his place, stating that they have more urgent things to say about the world than anything he might offer.

Cohen’s extremely deep, bullfrog singing voice has drawn comparisons to various artists, particularly Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, and Barry White. It is that strange unusual singing voice that forms the fulcrum within his CD’s, featuring guest performances by she-males, Goths, and other atypical entertainers.

FINAL CONFESSIONS I

(Music and Lyrics by Catman Cohen)

These are my confessions
Secrets of my mind
Everything that mattered
Truth I can not hide

Nothing but a shadow
Distant memory
What I was, What I am
What I’m supposed to be

Forgive me, God, forgive me
For being so unkind
Impatient…ungrateful
Cynical and blind

To those who thought they knew me
And those who never did
To those who hear my songs
In the places where they live

I offer my confessions
Honest to the core
Offer my confessions
There won’t be anymore

No more…

ZERO

(music and lyrics by Catman Cohen)

I was born pale and invisible
In a world
Sees everything
Everything, everything….but me

Invisible to your touch
And doubt you’ll like me very much
Am I alive?
Was I ever me?

I’m a non-existent cipher
A pointless empty zero
Never added up to anything
A non-existent cipher
Pointless empty zero
Tell me….what does it all mean?

And now I think I want you
Ethereal body
Oblivious mask
And now I think I love you
Intelligent lips
Painted in black

But no need to look my way
Or give me the time of day

Can’t be with you
In this world
Invisible man
Never gets the girl

Oh, no…

I’ll find where you are
And watch from afar
You will be felt by me

I’ll find where you are
And watch from afar
You will be loved by me

Your
Zero
Tonight
Your
Zero
For life
Your zero
The day I die

Your zero
