State of Mind is a singer-songwriter-electro-drone-noisepop act based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Its mastermind is the Danish art rock veteran, singer, synthesizer player and multi-instrumentalist Kim Bülow Bonfils.

State of Mind's songwriting draws its inspiration from talented outsiders like Daniel Johnston and Serge Gainsbourg. The sound mixes repetitive synthesizer trakcs with krautrock elements and layers of noise and feedback drones.

The lyrics explore the complex workings of the human psyche. From the eye-opening epiphanies to the destructive thought patterns that turn us into helpless bystanders to our own lives.

    It Doesn't Matter

    It Doesn't Matter

    Not a clue
    And still I only wish I knew
    Was this all that I could do

    Turn away
    When I have nothing left to say
    Here comes another day

    And in the end
    It doesn't matter
    In in the end
    It doesn't matter

    Do I dare?
    It's almost like I didn't care
    As if I wasn't there

    And there you go
    What happened centuries ago
    We have no way to know

    And in the end
    It doesn't matter
    In in the end
    It doesn't matter

    Inconvenience

    Inconvenience

    I don't know much
    But I know this to be true.
    I let myself down more than you

    And when you look at me
    I see you wonder why
    I let opportunities slip by

    So I apologize
    ,For the inconvenience
    Oh, I apologize

    Somehow I've broken
    All that I could break
    Too much for anyone to take

    And when I tried to help
    I only made it worse
    Don't hang around - I am a curse

    So I apologize
    ,For the inconvenience
    Oh, I apologize

    Imagine The Pain

    Imagine The Pain

    Imagine one day
    Just losing your way
    You cry out in vain
    Imagine the pain

    Talk to a friend
    Forget it's the end
    Rewire your brain
    Imagine the pain

    Imagine the pain
    All that is hidden down below
    The secret remains
    That you will never really know

    When everyone's gone
    Go back to square one
    Go slowly insane
    Imagine the pain

    You never know why
    You still have to try
    For capital gain
    Imagine the pain

    Imagine the pain
    All that is hidden down below
    The secret remains
    That you will never really know

    The Last Dance

    The Last Dance

    It's the end of the world as we know it
    But you never knew it all that well
    If you can't have just what you wish for
    You choose a lifetime in hell

    So I said
    Hey now, can I have the last dance?
    Hey now, can I have the last dance?
    There's music in the air
    And we've all got blood on our hands.

    When you walked the path to justice
    Looks like you took a wrong turn
    When against your great convictions
    Human life is no concern

    So I said
    Hey now, can I have the last dance?
    Hey now, can I have the last dance?
    There's music in the air
    And we've all got blood on our hands

    Did You Ever Notice

    Did You Ever Notice

    You never told your secrets
    So no one ever heard
    But even from your silence
    I knew every word
    I knew every single word

    The past is kind of funny
    The future makes you scared
    But now you'd like to tell me
    That you never cared
    That you never really cared

    Did you ever notice
    That you still feel alone
    Did you ever wonder
    When will you be coming home?

    We live between the moments
    Uncertain what they'll bring
    I ask you what's the matter
    You tell me "Everything"
    You tell me "Simply everything"

    Did you ever notice
    That you still feel alone?
    Did you ever wonder
    When will you be coming home?

    Darkness

    Darkness

    We all need directions
    To walk upon this earth
    And when we count our blessings
    Who can tell what they are worth?

    I tried my best to tell you
    But the words are not my own
    We can come together
    But each of us remains alone

    And we can't be sure what we're doing
    So we all just have to pretend
    And we all feel lost in the darkness
    Knowing that's where we go in the end

    I'll be in the garden
    Looking at the sky
    I hear you ask what happens
    But my question is always why

    And we can't be sure what we're doing
    So we all just have to pretend
    And we all feel lost in the darkness
    Knowing that's where we go in the end
