about

Elections. Narcissism, Fear and Loathing and the power of promises. Sounds like angst fodder to us! Onward! Forth into the bowels of the pale beast that is our political elite!

All the while, looking over our shoulder and behind the curtain of our bias.

This release is all new material except 'Replaceable', which was reworked for this purpose.

Please enjoy with a fine beverage and tasty morsels!

Track Name: The Body
By daylight - they've dragged the body
They've dragged the body - away
By dawn's light, all human traces
And all defilements - washed away

All is quiet, all is quiet - all thoughts quiet
He is silenced

In the darkness we kept a promise
We kept a promise - to pay
In darkness, we felt the sharpness
Emptied the vessel
And prayed

All is quiet, all is quiet - all thoughts quiet
He is silenced
Track Name: My Knuckledragging
SO FOR MY THOUGHT'S (REST) MY HEART, MY KNUCKLEDRAGGING.
Track Name: To Serve Man
Cling to your cages, cling to your cages,
Here there be dragons, here there be dragons,
Dear little piggies, Sweet little piggies,
Cling to your cages, soon you'll be bacon,

Fine line cuts, deep fried nuts

Drizzled with reduced balsamic glaze,
Dissected and slathered with mayonnaise,

Soon we dine! ( ... so, we all die. )
Track Name: Replaceable
She sits across the desk from me
Sipping cappuccino with the morning newspaper
Time
Time to get the lecture
Time for middle management to pay its dues

And every word she says
Is reasoned and finely tooled
It's the production line
Of her manufactured point of view

Small
Almost imperceptible
A movement out of order that
Unbalanced the equation
Fall
A philosophic stumble
A half forgotten mumble that has
Now been resurrected

“You’ve got to go”, she said
“A strange malignant point of view”
“We cut the cancer out, and in this case the cancer’s you.”

Everyone’s replaceable
Every picture traceable in a machine’s view
Plans are two dimensional and infinitely flexible to a machine’s rule
Move them in and cut them out
Till you get the product right
Get the product right, keep the prize in sight
And you will get promoted

Everyone’s replaceable everyone’s replaceable
And so are you
If everyone’s replaceable, everyone’s replaceable
Then so are you
Track Name: Magic Figure 8
Bouncing around here, voices on the phone
I've run some races, some I haven't

Stopped -
To look at this - I'm just a magic
Figure 8
Apologist
It's just my autocratic norm

Coming up aces, all the cards I play
I see their faces, beaming out I

Stopped -
To look at this - I'm just a magic
Figure 8
Apologist
It's just my autocratic norm

Talking forever, dancing on a pin
Asking familiars, where have they all

Stopped -
To look at this - I'm just a magic
Figure 8
Apologist
It's just my autocratic norm
Track Name: Royal Pain
If I can take a moment of your time
To flabbergast and make you mine
Would it all be hunky dory?

In all I do, I will define
The glittering will make you blind
And all the rest will just be boring

Call to me I am your king
Come to me and
Kneel

In my success I am your role
So push me upwards to my goal
And make your countenance adoring!

Call to me I am your king
Come to me and
Kneel

(Chorus of Worshippers):
All our pains and all our worries fade in your glory!
Track Name: Something More
SCREAM – A WAKING BED, ISN'T ALL HOT ATTACK - IN A BLISS DRIVEN MOMENT
DREAM – INTO A RED A FACT
CAUSES ALL TO COMMIT, TO A TERRIBLE NIGHTMARE
WE - FALL UPON OUR RELATIONSHIP
GRANTING ASYLUM TO THE WORTHY OPPONENT
SEE - HOW THE FANTASY CRUMBLES
AN HONEST WORD
I WANT IT TO MEAN SOMETHING – MORE

SPEAK - AND THEY WILL FLY AWAY, ALL THE FINE ARTIFACTS OF OUR
BEAUTIFUL FRIENDSHIP
CALL - ME, I AM YOURS TO SWAY
ALL THE ALMS A RESPECT, THAT I LAY AT YOUR ALTAR
FEEL – FALL APART AND BE FRACTURED
THE SYSTEM ALIGNS TO REFLECT A NEW ORDER
WE - STRIKE AND JUSTICE IS BLINDED
AN HONEST WORD FAILS FOR THE SIBILANT TYRANT
CALL - ALL THE GENTLEMEN SCHOLARS
THE MONEY WILL FLOW AND CREATE A CONSENSUS
SEE - HOW THE FANTASY CRUMBLES
AN HONEST WORD, FAILS

(All these lies are told, it’s a suffering,
In our hands, in our heads,
In our hearts there’s an aching for,
Honesty sweet,
And the fall of a thousand flowers in the summer breeze,
It’s the sweetest delusion, the sweetest delusion,
Save me friend – save me friend
Save me from save me from save me from save me from)

I WANT IT TO MEAN SOMETHING MORE
I WANT IT TO MEAN SOMETHING MORE
(AVE THE MARIA GIVEN TO ME THIS VALLEY OF FABLES)
(AVE THE MARIA GIVEN TO ME THIS VALLEY OF FABLES)
(AVE THE MARIA GIVE UNTO ME THIS VALLEY OF FABLES)
I WANT IT TO MEAN SOMETHING MORE
