about

We are a non-profit making music collective. You
can help change that by buying our songs
-
We aim to appeal to people who avoid TV 'talent'
shows at all costs, who are bored senseless by
the wailing diva and who have had a belly full
of the endless procession of re-masters, cover
versions and 'best of' compilations
-
We don't crave publicity. We would rather do
something than be someone. If you have any
interest in us at all we want it to be because of
the music we produce not because we scrub up
well after a session in Photoshop
-
We do not endorse the wearing of sunglasses
indoors unless under medical advisement, during
a period of bereavement or as a strategy to
reduce observable tells when playing poker
-
We would rather have a modest income and
work with a relatively low profile and deal only
with people that we love and trust than make an
enormous amount of money and have to deal
with scumbags everyday (Thanks for that one Steve)
-
We enjoy a slice of cake or a chocolate biscuit

Track Name: Bullshit
So many people believe they can wash their sins away
Redeem themselves no matter what they do
I don't believe that I don't believe a singe word they say
Just like water from a bottle you got to let it all wash over you

Did your daddy ever tell you son I'm going to see a brighter day?
Relax and put my feet up when my working days are done
Well I was standing on the right side the day the black angel cried out your song
So can anybody tell me why do the good die so young?

So we all join the congregration
And we all fall down on our knees
Then we all beg for our salvation
But it all smells like bullshit to me
Yes it all smells like bullshit to me

I've been thinking about the universe
Couldn't figure out what kind of part we play
There's some dickhead on my TV telling me it's written in the stars
And when Jupiter collides sending debris miles and miles across the Milky Way
Everybody here on earth is going to disappear up their own arse

So we all join the congregration
And we all fall down on our knees
Then we all beg for our salvation
But it all smells like bullshit to me
Yes it all smells like bullshit to me

Bullshit
Smells like bullshit to me
Track Name: Cellophane Sea
Well I feel like an island
No one but me
Lost in this world
Filled with hatred and greed

Like a ship on the ocean
No compass no chart
Taking in water
I'm going down fast

Yeah I feel like I'm sinking in a cellophane sea
Yeah I feel like I'm sinking in a cellophane sea

Wish I was on the same boat
As everybody else
Oblivious to just what's going down

Ride on the crest of this wave
With no one but myself
Somebody throw me a lifeline
I'm going down

I'm sinking down slowly
Spinning around
Caught in this whirlpool
And I'm going down

Treading on water
Clinging to faith
Breathing in deeper
With each breath I take

Yeah I feel like I'm sinking in a cellophane sea
Yeah I feel like I'm sinking in a cellophane sea

Ride on the crest of this wave
With everybody else
Ride on the crest of this craze
All by myself
I'm going down slowly now

I'm going down
Track Name: Shipbuilding
Now they say it`s only natural
Like a winter turns to spring
When you're living in a ghost town
Some things have got to change

When hunger comes a calling
Knocking at your door
And the children keep on crying
Crying out for more

Shipbuilding

Well my father was a shipbuilder
He built the ship from steel
Then he`d sail it down the river
With a captain at the wheel

In '63 he lost his job
So he poached the farmers fields
With a shotgun in his raincoat
And a bulldog at his heel

The repo man stopped calling
It`s been passed on to the law
Brown enevlopes lie scattered
Unopened on the floor

And all his life's posessions
Have been carried through that door
Boards nailed across the windows
And the key don't fit no more

Shipbuilding

So he left it all behind him
Couldn't take it any more
Left the people and the place
That had held him like a claw
Like so many he went looking
Searching for those streets of gold

Take this message to the families
On the Wear and the Tyne
Belfast and in Glasgow
Got to hold your head up high
Tie your children with their heartstrings
Give them all your love and more
Never let them slip away
Like so many have before

Shipbuilding

Well we're talking about the ships

Shipbuilding

And the men of steel
Track Name: John Said
It's been a long long time
Since you sang about a revolution
And we`re lost here in the dark
So blind that we can't see
Well I'm inclined to agree
With your philosophy
They`re the thoughts
I hold close to my heart

Day after day
There`s a new wave of destruction
Time after time
The eye that turned was blind
Such a strange symmetry
Though we choose to agree
As we all turn through space
And through time

They didn't listen to a word that John said
They didn't listen to Luther King
And the tears of Timothy Leary
Fell like the rain in early spring
Just like the rain in early spring
Now the birds refuse to sing

They say the times they are a changing
The writing's on the wall
Kings, dreams and empires
Like autumn leaves will fall
Why do we choose to ignore
All that has gone before?
Suffering that`s the price that you pay

They didn't listen to a word that John said
They didn't listen to Luther King
And the tears of Timothy Leary
Fell like the rain in early spring
Just like the rain in early spring
Now the birds refuse to sing
Track Name: Monkey Stomp
People round here
They just don't got no future
They sit around year after year
Time on their hands
But their hands have never got the time and
And so they look around
Then cry into their beer

They`re doing the monkey stomp monkey stomp monkey stomp
They`re doing the monkey stomp here
They`re doing the monkey stomp monkey stomp monkey stomp
And they`ll be monkeys for a million years

They twist and whine
And bite the hand that feeds them
Sign on the line then disappear
It`s groundhog day
And there's no point in rising
The posties late again
The rent man's left in tears

They`re doing the monkey stomp monkey stomp monkey stomp
They`re doing the monkey stomp here
They`re doing the monkey stomp monkey stomp monkey stomp
And they`ll be monkeys for a million years

I never thought that I would see the day
It`s like I'm slipping back in time
Hats of to lunatics and maniacs
Did Charlie Darwin hit the rewind

Stomp! Stomp! Do the monkey stomp
Stomp! Stomp! Do the monkey stomp

They`re doing the monkey stomp monkey stomp monkey stomp
They`re doing the monkey stomp here
They`re doing the monkey stomp monkey stomp monkey stomp
And they`ll be stomping for a million years

The sun goes down upon this promised land
Did I hear Charlton Heston say?
You dopey sods you've gone and blown it now
Cornelius moved next door and now he`s here to stay

They`re doing the monkey stomp monkey stomp monkey stomp
They`re doing the monkey stomp here
They`re doing the monkey stomp monkey stomp monkey stomp
And they`ll be stomping for a million years
Track Name: Mila
Some days are so dull and grey
Some days I just feel that way
But I always feel safe and warm
Here in the arms of Mila
In the arms of Mila

Took a lifetime to find my way
Lonely nights empty days
Now I know why I want to stay
Here in the arms of Mila
In the arms of Mila

In the arms
In the arms
Here in the arms of Mila

No wise choice just kismet
Lucky roll of the dice
Lady luck well she smiled my way
She don't normally look at me twice

Caught hook, line and sinker
Lie in the bed that I made
Now I know why I want to stay
Here in the arms of Mila

Mila Mila here in the arms of Mila
Mila Mila here in the arms of Mila

We'll be so happy together
Flying like birds of a feather
Head on through this stormy weather
Here in the arms of Mila

Mila Mila here in the arms of Mila
Mila Mila here in the arms of Mila
Track Name: Pass The Buck
Come on brother
Can't you see?
It`s always been that way
For you and me

No good fighting
You just can't win
Fighting the system
That we`re living in

Well there's so many problems
So many doubts
They stick it to you
Then lay you out

'cos the buck gets passed around
Seen by every big noise
But you never hear a sound
The buck gets passed on down
How does it reach the bottom
When the world is upside down?

Politician
Lying in the sun
Scratch his arse
And thats his day's work done

Legislation
Just going to have to wait
'cos he needs a little time
So he can delegate

'cos the buck gets passed around
Seen by every big noise
But you never hear a sound
The buck gets passed on down
How does it reach the bottom
When the world is upside down?

So come on brother
That's nothing new
It's the same for me
As it is for you

No good fighting
When you know that you can't win
'cos it chews you up then spits you out
And starts all over again

'cos the buck gets passed around
Seen by every big noise
But you never hear a sound
The buck gets passed on down
How does it reach the bottom
When the world is upside down?

Pass it around around around

Pass it on down on down on down
Track Name: Just For The Moment
I've given up trying to find my salvation
Life just gets stranger that's a fact
So many times I've found my limitation
I'm happy when my life's intact

I may not find what I've been looking for
I may just roll on like a stone
So I live this lie
Just for the moment

This ball I stand on just keeps spinning nowhere
Maybe there's nowhere left to turn
I wont deny I love this expectation
So I'll just let this candle burn

I may not find what I've been looking for
I may just stumble in the dark
Yes stumble in the dark
So I live this lie
Just for the moment

I may not find what I've been looking for
I may just roll on like a stone
So I live this lie
Just for the moment

Just for the moment
Just for the moment

So I let this candle burn
'cos there`s nowhere left to turn

Let this candle burn
'cos there`s nowhere left to turn
Stumble in the dark
Just for the moment
Track Name: Shine On
Light that beacon in your soul
Hang it high up in your doorway
Let that incandescense show
Everyone that it`s just your way

Why do you have to be so cold?
When you shine you shine like gold
Why do you have to push that way
You're just pushing us away

Well it only goes to show
Your blood runs through my nerves and sinew
I know everything you know
In fact I think I could have been you

How the hell do you get so cold?
There's a force that you control
Radiating like the sun
Let it burn bright in your doorway
Hold it high

So let your light shine on
Let your light shine on
Let your light shine
Let your light shine on

She`s an angel cast in stone
Starved and robbed of all fulfilment
When she barks she bites the bone
Then she begs for your forgiveness

There's a beacon in your soul
When it shines it shines like gold
Find a spark and watch it burn
Hang it high up in your doorway
Hold it high

So let your light shine on
Let your light shine on
Let your light shine
Let your light shine on
Track Name: Vivian
Black velvet silk and gold
Coiled serpentine round chrome
She`s going to shake that thing tonight

In a banker's paradise
Sweaty palms and fishnet tights
Vivian she`s back in town tonight

She rocks it then she rolls
Spinning faster spinning low
Stiletto heels long blonde hair
Lay it down she`ll take you there

Take you there
She'll take you there
Vivian

He called his wife at ten to two
There's long delays at Waterloo
Apparently there's leaves upon the line

Now Henry's weekend has begun
Jumped the tube he`s on the run
Booked a table bought a round
Takes his seat as the lights go down

Tension mounts as the curtains part
Strobe lights flicker in the dark
Greasy shadows shine then melt away

City slickers seedy tarts
Pockets full empty hearts
Happy in their Friday masquerade

Round and round and round she goes
Vivian
Round and round and round she goes

She dances round that chrome
Black velvet silk and gold
A rendezvous in Camden Town
She's never let old Henry down

Round and round and round she goes
Vivian
Round and round and round she goes
Vivian
Round and round and round she goes
Track Name: The Road
I hear thunder
Seen lighting again
And this solitude surrounds me
Like and old familiar friend

I remember
Those summers back when
We`d lay down in the cornfield
And the wine would flow like rain

But now I'm walking down this winding road
It`s a road that never ends

Oh Lord
What have we done?
You gave us everything
Now it's all gone

There was a spaceman
Seen him walk upon the moon
And they told him not to worry
They all said he`d be back soon
Well he's still looking for that safety valve
And the fuse that must have blew

Oh Lord
Look at your son
Lost here in outer space
The only one

Was it madness?
So much to lose
Why did we leave it
In the hands of corporate fools?

We had heaven paradise
They made the money
We paid the price

Everything is lost and broken
From the west down to the coast
Now I find myself here walking
Back along this road

Oh Lord
Look at your son
Nailed to a crucifix
Look what they've done

There was a story
In a book that I have read
They crucified the carpenter
Then gave away his bread
Now he's hung up in a burning church
Thorns around his head

Oh Lord
Look what they done
They`ve broken everything
Under the sun
