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.

    Before I Give Up

    Before I Give Up

    Before I give up
    The question you've got
    Why should I give up?
    Well, why should I not?

    Before I give up
    I'd like you to know
    You may want me to stay
    But please let me go

    Before I give up
    I look at myself
    What could you have done?
    No way you could help

    Before I give up
    For better or worse
    It looks like a choice
    It feels like a curse

    Before I give up
    I'd just like to say
    It's okay
    It's okay
    It's okay

    Feel Sorry For The Psychopath

    Feel Sorry For The Psychopath

    You cry for the underdog
    The injustice that you see
    You despise the criminal
    Who's not like you and me

    We follow all the rules
    If not, we take the blame
    But where does that leave anyone
    Who doesn't feel the same

    Feel sorry for the psychopath
    Feel sorry for the one who lost control
    Feel sorry for the psycopath
    Feel sorry for a broken souløö

    You remember those who suffered
    Remember those who died
    Consider the destruction
    But did you ever try

    To feel sorry for the psychopath
    Feel sorry for the one who lost control
    Feel sorry for the psycopath
    Feel sorry for a broken soul

    Only Saw the Sights

    Only Saw the Sights

    You bought the leading tourist guide
    To take along with you
    And that's how you decided
    Everything you'd see and do

    But hidden in the side streets
    Out the corner of your eye
    You could just make out the locals
    Living real lives.

    You followed the path
    You did everything right
    But in the end you missed it all
    And only saw the sights

    The career that you've chosen
    Is what made you a star
    You got the house, you got the wife
    You got the biggest car

    But as the night grows darker
    And your eyesight starts to fade
    You begin to question
    The choices that you made

    You followed the path
    You did everything right
    But in the end you missed it all
    And only saw the sights

    You never lost your way
    You never lost your way

    I Write a Fucking Song

    I Write a Fucking Song

    When I find myself in trouble
    And no help is on the way
    When I find I have to struggle
    To get through another day
    When the odds are stacked against me
    and all hope is gone
    When I realize there's nothing to be done

    I write a fucking song
    Write a fucking song
    Wrote it for myself
    Now I'm singing it for you
    I write a fucking song

    I've turned my back on anyone
    Who really needs my help
    I hope you realize
    I couldn't even help myself
    Nothing lasts forever
    Everything will break
    Please don't expect me
    To fix my own mistakes

    I write a fucking song
    Write a fucking song
    Wrote it for myself
    Now I'm singing it for you
    I write a fucking song

    Is anyone listening
    Is anyone listening
    At all?
    I write a fucking song
