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.

    You Will Survive Me

    You Will Survive Me

    Years ago
    I felt so strong
    And I knew
    How to play this game
    It's been a while
    Now the time has come
    For you
    To feel the same

    'Cause you
    You will survive me
    One day you will take
    Everything I had
    Yes, you
    You will survive me
    And you should know I'm fine with that

    I lost my voice
    And you who will be here
    After me
    Will sing a different song
    Should I complain
    Or even try to disagree
    You'll live to prove me wrong

    'Cause you
    You will survive me
    One day you will take
    Everything I had
    Yes, you
    You will survive me
    And you should know I'm fine with that

    Not The Kind Of Person I Am

    Not The Kind Of Person I Am

    You point the finger, you place the blame
    But your mistake's forever the same
    You throw accusations on me
    But I'm not the one that you take me to be
    I promise you now and you must understand:
    That's not the kind of person I am
    That's not the kind of person I am

    I never did the things that I should
    Most of the time i was up to no good
    All that I did and all that I said
    Doesn't matter at all - you should just forget
    I'll say it again just as loud as I can
    That's not the kind of person I am
    That's not the kind of person I am

    There is a secret that you'll never know
    Hidden away where no one will go
    All the bad just happens to hide
    All the good I'm holding inside
    A shadow of the invisible man
    That's the kind of person I am

    The Lonely Are Invisible

    The Lonely Are Invisible

    Such a lovely party
    With all the laughter and the cheer
    We seem to have forgotten
    Those who can't be here

    The lonely are invisible
    In ways we'll never know
    We never see them coming round
    Never notice when they go

    Walking past a closed door
    You wonder what's inside
    Whatever could have happened
    That just made them want to hide

    The lonely are invisible
    In ways we'll never know
    We never see them coming round
    Never notice when they go

    Anyone Can Do It

    Anyone Can Do It

    He stepped into the spotlight
    I could hear the crowd go wild
    Then he looked down at me
    And told me with a smile

    I came from nothing
    I didn't have a clue
    I was such a mess
    But I knew just what to do

    I rose above it
    I rose above myself
    I rose above
    Every law of nature
    Anyone can do it
    Anyone can do it
    So why can't you?

    Who needs talent
    When you have opportunities?
    If you fake it well
    You can make it just like me

    I rose above it
    I rose above myself
    I rose above
    Every law of nature
    Anyone can do it
    Anyone can do it
    So why can't you?

    A Million Broken Hearts

    A Million Broken Hearts

    This is all it takes
    To make a grown man cry
    You only had to say goodbye
    This is all it takes
    To make a fool of me
    Like I was always meant to be

    There's a million broken hearts out there
    And we are only two
    It makes no sense that anyone should care
    But you know I do

    This is all it takes
    To knock me off my feet
    While you never missed a beat
    This is all it takes
    To make me feel alone
    Pretend you're happy on your own
