about

An organic 17 track journey of eclectic alt/punk DIY weirdness.

Fashioned using 2 microphones, an old school Tascam 8 track and a 10-year-old laptop running Cool Edit Pro.

It goes reasonably well with a glass of tawny port and a bowl of buttermilk ice cream.

Track Name: Vengeance
when it’s vengeance that’s fuelling my mind • it can leave all the logic behind • do you believe what the others have said? • or are they just trying to comfort the dead? • they keep us separated all from the whole • just let the higher-power now assume all control • i see them all signing up for the drill • psyching up for an enemy to kill • whether it’s honour or vengeance • it bears a sad resemblance • to worldwide indoctrination • your allegiance to god is to a nation • when it’s vengeance that’s firing the gun • you better run for the life of your son • because there’s others who choose to believe • that peace by death is something they can achieve • the Ultimate truth is what they claim to possess • whether they kill for the east or the west• but if we fight to the tooth and the nail • then I guess resistance has already failed • whether it’s pride or vengeance• it bears a sad resemblance • to worldwide indoctrination • Your allegiance to god is to a nation • so they decree an eye for an eye • then they trade the youth for the youth • because nationalistic pride • it never cared too much for the truth • and now the hate it is so high from the tide • to find peace you have to withdraw inside • ritualistic hate-fuelled providence • versus capitalistic new-world dominance • whether it’s glory or vengeance • it bears a sad resemblance • to worldwide indoctrination • your allegiance to god is to a nation •
Track Name: Threaten Anything
so plant your feet on the ground • beauty and evil abound • they’re in the sound of the pound to astound the profound • so place your mind in a vision • we can live the decision of precision and derision now the system is risen • do you feel like there’s something missing? • Like we should all just connect and stop insisting? • i know i do sometimes in the lines and the signs • the double binds • and the habits that close my mind • i’m trying to find a new way of being • i’m building high up above the unseeing • it gets tough and it becomes my trial • i’m prosecuted while the style in the file is so vile • they run a mile from this abnormality • it cuts so deep across accepted rationality • they’re taking aim and they’re pointing their choices at me • call me ‘insane’ • use your threatening voices for me • i get so high that i can’t conceal it • the evil forces rally just to get me to feel it • they know that it’s mine but they’re trying to steal it • threaten anything but i won’t reveal it • i get so high that i can’t conceal it • threaten anything but i won’t reveal it • you think i’d give up my secret so easy? • you say the truth alone, is that what frees me? • maybe it is, but it isn’t if your hate’s involved • so problem solved, we’ve evolved and you have no hold • you’re slipping loose and you struggle to regain your grip • you’re like a trip when you slip and you skip to the whip • you’re cracking fast and the past will ensure that you’re last • so set a cast in a vast wide landscape • now let me translate for all us consumers • don’t need a mandate to hate or pay rumours • it’s just a point of view but it’s powerful so it becomes law • you say what for? • what floor? • which door? • but you’ll never say why? •i’ll bet you’ll never say who? • cos you got something to do and you got something to prove • to a world full of hungry competitors • get it or become the broken or predator •
Track Name: Splashing in the Blue Water
splashing in the blue water because it feels good • Even if it strikes me blind i know that i could • find another way to stay or to play away • for something beautiful lurks there beyond the day • and anyway, i never really cared about all the shit that they’re talking about • free your mouth • free your mind • free your soul • free your being • splashing in the blue water • Thrashing in the blue water because they paid me • Money is the dirty suit they made me wear • medium rare • up on the barbeque • and it’s true that if i hadn’t had something to do • i could’ve been there with you • if the blue water did allow • and we found our very own way to the sound • maybe one day • maybe somehow • maybe no day • maybe now • splashing in the blue water •
Track Name: Sleeping Rough
i could be homeless just like you, had i been wearing those shoes • in the house where you grew up, where nobody gave a fuck • about anything except themselves, it was a life but it was not living well • and there was no one you could trust or you could tell, so you adapted to survive in hell • and i thank my lucky star everyday • that i stand upon the earth with you today • cos the sun will burn it all down • and the ocean will bring you back around • then circumstances and decisions came, and you hung the consequences on your name • did what you had to do to try and dull the pain, but the ebb and flow of rage could not be tamed • so you turned that blade against yourself, to repay the suffering that you had dealt • and you dreamed of a deeper sense of home, but your inaction made you more and more alone • and i thank my lucky star everyday • that despite all of that shit, you’re basically o.k • and the sun will burn it all down • and the ocean will bring you back around • if you regretted every quick impulsive move, you’d be so buried in the past you could not choose and i thank my lucky star everyday • that i stand upon the earth with you today • cos the sun will burn it all down • and the ocean will bring you back around • you sink below then you get your head above, and you reflect upon the deeper truth of love • it doesn’t mean that it’s the easy path to take, but it its something real within a world that can be so fake • those closest to you could collapse inside this pain, but still they look to you and love you just the same and that will remain •and i thank my lucky star everyday • that i stand upon the earth with you today • cos the sun will burn it all down • and the ocean will bring you back around •
Track Name: I Just Can't Deal With This Right Now
i just can’t deal with this right now • and if i could i wouldn’t feel like it anyhow • cos when the river runs red the seeds will grow • and gratitude will drop dead like tomorrow knows • you see i’ve given my all and then i’ve given some more • i’m trying to move on but i’m not so fucking sure • i just can’t deal with this right now • and if i could i wouldn’t feel like it anyhow • cos when the wind blows cold the leaves will turn • and attitudes will turn round like the trees will burn • sometimes the moments they freeze under undue pressure • like you could work everyday for some mythical treasure • i wanna run to the hills and live under the trees • i’m living a routine when there’s a moment to seize •
Track Name: ...Pudding is Served
the years have passed now the timing is right • the echo of the dusk it causes many a fright • the demons of desire are running into the night • the screeching and the gnashing of the teeth as they bite • hungry for the sweetness and the heat of the bowl • it’s for pudding that they strike but then they take your soul • when pudding is served • take a seat if you’re evil • have some sticky date • with some ice cream and treacle • or you could indulge in some trifle with sherry • and custard and cream • and gelatinous berries • they are your overlords in the land of the plenty • you are the peasants and they are the gentry • you’re toiling through the night preparing thick, sticky courses • propelled by appetites of pure demonic forces • your master gorges himself while you’re doing his dishes • you’re cleaning up the kitchen while he entertains his bitches • work your way through chocolate profiterole mountains • or gorge yourself spent under hot chocolate fountains • there’s self-saucing butterscotch of you are so inclined • now pudding is served to the taste that is well refined •
Track Name: Fortitude Valley
it was in Fortitude Valley • in that goddamn back alley • i did not know where i had been • so can you tell me something? • or is it something never seen • between the silence and the scream? • i’d like to buy you a drink • then even more so you cannot think • and i’ll sink to the worst i’ve ever been • having a good time • without reflection • i guess my judgement changed direction • i left you behind • pushed those who love me aside • and now i don’t have time for introspection • it was in Fortitude Valley • in that cold and dark back alley • goddamn they made a mess of me • and i want to fuck that dude up • but in a way you don’t give a fuck • you simply dampen your own scream • well i’d like to stroll through the mall • standing fucking ten feet-tall • as you erase my memory • i was dreaming of a different life • i guess i got carried away • painted myself • with a target • i had no fight • i had no say • catching up with an old friend • it was so good to see her • i guess i lost my track of time • one minute • it was me and her • the next it was just me and my new friend •
Track Name: Facebook Friends
they’re watching from afar • judging who you are • when there’s nothing to express • withdrawal just might be best • we’re all facebook friends • we’re just trying to pretend • that this is somehow a worthwhile substitute of time • your minions they beckon • they order you online • they bless you with likes • we’re all armchair psychs • now the voyeuristic horde • is restless, pissed and bored • we’re all facebook friends • we’re just trying to pretend •
Track Name: H.A.G
he wants a hot asian girlfriend • someone who’ll make him a man • he wants a hot asian girlfriend • someone who will understand • that he doesn’t have time just to give away • cos for the first forty years it was work not play • so today he’s gonna pay, put his money down • he’s gonna get to the party and he’ll jump around • to the big, big sound of the middle ages • his life is moving but it’s going through stages • now this stage is set like a wet verandah • he meets a eurasian girl call Amanda • he wants a hot asian girlfriend • what Amanda doesn’t know is that this guy’s a dick • on the surface he seems cool and acts kinda slick • and luckily for him, money isn’t an issue • he splashes it around like a coconut issue • with Amanda on his arm this guy feels like a player • the blokes from the office will be sure to want to lay her • with the jealousy set they will soon forget • that this guy is like a Balzac covered in sweat • he wants a hot asian girlfriend • so he takes this girl to the next work function • he’s trying to impress her but his plan is crumbling • the poor girl is bored and she cannot afford • to spend her time with a loser who can’t cut the cord • though he begs her to stay • he begs her to play • she just stands up and then she walks away • now what will this do to his reputation? • he had a hot girlfriend and she was asian •
Track Name: Send in The Regulators
on the day you crushed my soul • i swear my life was whole • i was so in control • til i repeat the unattainable goal • where is reason and where is fact? • where is treason is and where is tact? • the exact emotions are never played out • we add the potions to know what we’re about • it seems all hope is gone so send in the regulators • and they will break it up • disperse or demonstrate • it seems logic has failed so send in the regulators • and they will cut you up • repair or degenerate • it seems instinct is tricked so send in the regulators • and they will heal your brain • divulge or delegate • it seems that time’s too still so send in the regulators • and they will push you out • determine or deliberate • on the day that broke my name • yes, i agreed to carry the blame • i blazed a fire that melted chain • each second new with no bullshit refrain • where is purpose and where is the pact? • what have we gained that we once lacked? • the exact potential may never play out • we add the freedom to see what we’re about •
Track Name: Zombie Apocalypse
you’re going down • zombie apocalypse • don’t stop now • it’s the zombie apocalypse • grab a fucking axe • for the zombie apocalypse • better make tracks • it’s the zombie apocalypse • the frontal lobes have now left the building • their still-active cerebellum says kill things • settle for flesh but your brain’s extra tasty • the epidemic of the undead and crazy • the smell of decay • it permeates the zombie swarm • they know you’re close • they can smell that your blood’s still warm • you swing your axe like a crazy motherfucker at a zombie skull • if you had an assault-rifle this would be such a simple cull • an axe between the eyes means there’s no need for a double-tap • you could subdue a few • not this extermination crap • you break down to cry • zombie scratches your neck and bites your ear off • you scream out as your blood runs wet • cos your arm has just been torn off •
Track Name: Influential Leaders of the 21st Century
’m scratching at my skin • like i did before • and you could let me in • but you hit the floor • i turn the computer on • and i grab my phone • technology is up the ass • so throw me a bone • pixelated memories of stability • slip into a rubber suit of nobility • the influential leaders of the 21st century • driving this baby on some very dirty energy • we lubricate our minds and focus on the enemy • then act so surprised to find it’s an emergency • everyone is so concerned • that you act your age • put your pants back on • go and earn a wage • slip into your cubicle • tap into the keys • pump in some more caffeine • get down on your knees • the inspiration doesn’t come • you’re not an arsonist • you’re taking pictures of yourself • cos you’re a narcissist • like everybody-fucking-else born in the 90’s • we create the empty space • and its blinding • the influential leaders of the 21st century • driving this baby on some very dirty energy • we lubricate our minds and focus on the enemy • then act so surprised to find it’s an emergency • you find it’s an emergency • it wasn’t meant to be •
Track Name: People Need People
people need people • look at who you found • there’s so many people • the whisper’s getting loud • there’s evil in people • just look around • people need people • so look at who you found • people caught up in their lives • people spinning so much • spinning so much bullshit all the time • the humble don’t grumble • when the ego lands • they tumble and stumble • see how quick they stand • the humble don’t grumble • they simply shield their eyes • the thunder will plunder • when they project to the skies • people caught up in their lies • people spinning so much • spinning so much bullshit all the time • defeaten and beaten • they gather ranks by the fire • bleeding and seething • with no revenge to inspire • they leave and receive it • build their weapons with words • when they grieve they retrieve it • feel the energy surge • people caught up in their minds • people spinning so much • spinning so much bullshit all the time •
Track Name: Fucking With My Head
you’re fucking with my head • you switch the rules around • and leave me on unstable ground • what are you chasing, what’s the price? • seems either way it’s sacrifice • so what is sacred? • what is real? • i use your words to make me feel • and now the walls are crumbling • and the voices are mumbling • we’re drunk and we’re stumbling • we got the keys but we’re fumbling • you’re fucking with my head • seems like you rearrange the truth • i’m back to Even In His Youth • nonchalant, detached and cold • this must be looking fucking old • but in my heart i know it’s fine • the greatest trick of all is time • you’re fucking with my head •
Track Name: I Hear the Crow
it could be another blood-red horizon • but then again, could be a phoenix rising • i don’t know, but it seems to be prophesising • when we connect, this whole thing seems surprising • i hear the crow • i do not know if it’s the end • but still I know • you helped me grow • you made amends • i think i see emerald-green in the forest clearing • is it just for me? • how does it fit with what i’m hearing? • i will not judge or try to categorise it • i will just be • and i will realise it • i hear the crow • i do not know if it’s the end • but this i know • i helped you grow • all things will end • it could be that the deep-blue ocean is crying • what i would give, to take the pain from dying • i love you most, why do you send me flying? • towards the sun, towards my own uprising • i hear the crow • i do not know if it’s the end • but this i know • you don’t have to go • the branch will bend •
Track Name: Can't Sleep
your voice is in my ears • i’m full of fear • and i can’t sleep tonight • countdown to morning time • or cross the line • so i can’t sleep tonight • why do i toss and turn? • my conscience burns but i can’t sleep tonight • i am unravelling • i’m travelling • but it’s in my mind tonight • this trip is beckoning • but i’m reckoning • that time is on my side • i try to weigh it up • i play it up and over in my mind • they call it’s reason but it’s treason • and it’s blowing up what’s kind • it’s got to be in here • but i’m so near • to the details i am blind • the beginning’s not the end • but the end is not my friend • and the message that i‘d send • i could never defend • so we take out our knives again • and say that the change itself knows when • and no more sleep til
then •
Track Name: Stayed So Long
my heart it bounces off your walls and it slaps to the ground • i could plan the perfect day but i’d still hear that sickening sound • you can reframe it your own way just to give yourself control • you can plan the perfect comeback but your words could never console • why did i stay so long? • i had to say so long to you again • i thought i was so strong • how could i ever belong to you again? • that’s why i stayed so long • i had to say so long to you again • how could i be so wrong? • i guess i’ll say so long • my brain is riddled with angry worms and i think they plan to attack • the worms are armed with spears and knives and the leader’s name is jack • he has a penchant for murderous means and he heard that shit you said • his little voice is asking me why i stayed with you • he says again and again • why did i stay so long? •
