about

A bunch of reasonably diverse songs mostly guitar based and coloured in with synth and FX. Lyrical ruminations ranging from philosophic to comic.
Pretty much all done in this strange and foreboding year of 2016.

Track Name: Took My Eyes off The Ball
When I took my eyes off the ball
It went bouncing down the hall
Shoulda made that telephone call
Shoulda met her in the shopping mall
I can’t ima-gine
What goes on in your brand new lab
Or put to ransom
A girl in a hansom cab
Just a chance that we can spiral in
Find the skylight and just drop in
And follow that bouncing ball
Follow that bouncing ball

I made a record on a piece of wax
It went down through the cracks
And now it’s done
We can never look back
And I’m a sailor
Cast adrift on a toxic sea
And all my crew mates
They’re pirates on a spending spree
Just a chance that we can spiral in
Find the jetty and just dive in
And follow that bouncing ball
Follow that bouncing ball
..down the hall
down the hall

It’s cata-to-ni- a
The sound of a thousand cuts
And in Patagonia
I felt the pain deep inside my guts
Just a chance that we can spiral in
Find the jetty and just dive in
Yeah you follow that bouncing ball
follow that bouncing ball
out the door and into the street
off the jetty and into the sea
far from you and me
from you
from me
Track Name: Nothing To Prove
I Woke up in the morning at a different address
Woke up in the morning and my face was a mess
Woke up in the morning at a different address

It’s been a long time since I played the Blues
Been a long time since I rocked with you
Been a long time since I played the Blues

And it occurred to me today we got nothing to lose
It occurred to me today to buy some dancing shoes
It occurred to me today we got nothing to prove

I woke up in the morning with my head in a vice
Woke up in the morning with my head in a vice
Gotta stop listenin’ to bullshit advice

Took a walk in the park my hangover ’n me
The things a guy ‘ll do just to be free
Took a walk in the park my hangover ’n me

And it occurred to me today we got nothing to prove
It occurred to me today we got nothing to lose
It occurred to me today to rock my soul with you

(bridge)

It’s been a long time since I rocked with you
It’s been a long time now I got the Blues
It’s been a long time now I gotta choose

You don’t forget how to ride a bike
But sometimes you don’t seem to step to the mic
(been a long time… been a long time… )

It occurred to me today we got nothing to prove
It occurred to me today we got nothing to lose
It occurred to me ……. today
It occurred to me today we got nothing to prove
It occurred to me today we got nothing to prove
Track Name: Midnight Facts
Midnight facts
are very rarely wrong
but they seem to come out at that part of the song
that rattles your chains
gets into your veins
and them all facts are muddy in the morning light

A midnight twist
that got you all in a twist
a mental flip-flop
that didn't exist
I don't recall, no not much at all
Total amnesia in the September rain

Last time I saw you
we were in Paris
was it the disco in Buckingham Palace?
don't let the facts get in the way
no way
A double decker bus , a tourist in a muddle
looking for the embassy in diplomatic trouble
she's gone... it's identity fraud
goodbye, goodbye girl

midnight snacks tend to make you fat
they promote indigestion right off the bat
stick in your gizzard
feel like a lizard
take the whole day off and float away
well, now that she's gone I better look after myself
clear out the rubbish that's
left on the shelf
the more that things change
the more they remain
my favourite T-shirt's got a nasty stain

Last time I saw you
was in the Serengeti
a speeding toboggan
fleeing from the Yeti
don't let the facts get in the way
no way
midnight at the disco
they tell me she's in 'Frisco
you know I wish her well but
I cannot break her spell
She's gone to a midnight world
(Midnight, Midnight Girl)
Goodbye
(Midnight, Midnight Girl)
Goodbye girl
(Midnight, Midnight Girl)
Track Name: Weird Stones
Any old miracle will do for a start
anything you like that won't break your heart
WEIRD STONES are rolling down the hill
making strange sounds and never sitting still
There's a man training the sights of his gun
looking for a face in the stadium
the band breaks into some mid-tempo rock
the game's about to start and they're looking at the clock
WEIRD STONES are jumping out the box

On any other planet you'd be out of your mind
some kinda strange pantomine
once again folks we are outta time
La-ah-ah-ah

Sitting on the stairs by the bicycle shed
strange ruminations are floating in my head
WEIRD STONES go clickety-clack
looking for a map
to find their way back
There's a heap of data that's impossible to parse
there's a right wing junta took over the class
the political scientist with appendicitis
a little hiatus to which he wasn't invited
WEIRD STONES are busting up our homes

On any other planet you'd be out of your mind
some kinda strange pantomine
once again folks we are outta time, Oh yes
La-ah-ah-ah
We're out of time
