Lyrics
The Nix

this is my song about a nix, yes a nix, yes a nix
he's a young and a beautiful man, look at him, look at him
I wonder who he's waiting for? It's probably another girl, one of thus pretty girls
that's kind of what you do when you're a nix
you lure, and you lure, and you lure

the young hearts into your life
to eat them with a fork and a knife

this is a poem about a nix, serious; no tricks
he lives downstairs from me you see
and he plays the violin
that's why he gets all thus girls
he lures them with a beautiful melody
that's why he get all the girls
because he knows how to write a good melody

there she comes, there she comes, there she comes, and steps out of the car
she's fooled, she's fooled, she's fooled

the young hearts into your life
to eat them with a fork and a knife

The Neck or the Nix refer to shapeshifting water spirits who usually appear in human form.
The spirit has appeared in the myths and legends of all Germanic peoples of Europe.
Their sex, bynames and various animal-like transformations vary geographically.
The German Nix and his Scandinavian counterparts are males, whereas the Geman Nixe or Nixie is a female river mermaid.
the young hearts into your life
to eat them with a fork and a knife

Prolific
Hello Mikki,
I am very impressed not only with this VERY interesting and strange song, but also by how prolific you are.
This one has really got me thinking, I love it.
Cheers

Strange
but in a good way - I'm liking this very much indeed but at the same time I'm not quite sure what to make of it - I think it'll need a few listens.

Thanks for sharing.

I knew ...
... I was going to like this before it even started Mikki. Some very odd things happening as in most of your songs, but odd in a good way. I'd be interested to follow the path of your influences, because you write stuff that is way outside my experience. Is this reflecting something from your Scandinavian background (not the story, but the music)?
Very interesting!

Again....
....this is exactly why I'm glad you're here at Macjams. This is so interesting musically and lyrically. The subject and lyrics just seem to come from some netherworld that only you seem to have access to. They are perfect for the driving, brooding sound. Another great one, Mikki.

she blinded me with science
..must be the picture. This is one of your tops!

I like all the various pieces that are in juxtaposition to each other to unite it all together.
Excellent!

Gripping
As has already been said, strange, but in a good (interesting) way. Completely gripping from start to finish, and I especially like the way it just cuts out at the end. You clearly did some research on this, which in itself is pretty interesting!

Did you write this about me?
Ha ha! But seriously... a phenomenal original track, brilliantly put together, arranged and produced. And great melodies, you're not a nix as well are you...?

Cool
I think that the vocals can be a tad stronger. But I guess it depends on the feel you are trying to display. Its very different than any pop song I have ever hear, but I like the guitar and bass parts and how they counter each other.

Great song
I like how the music is understated even when it kicks in, great complexity and sounds. I felt like I didn't know what was coming next.
