yet another cerebral collection of songs from richard murrey. groove pockets and riffs to remember... all sauteed with lyrics to make one stand up and exclaim "i'm just a carbon-based, bipedal mammalian life-form bent on reproducing myself all while stuffing my belly with the flesh of lesser creatures who can't make a fist!" ...er, sorry, off on a philosophical rant there... it won't happen again. just very cool tunes worthy of airplay and platinum level video productions. let's have a run-down, shall we?
"meerkats of mars"... maybe they're up there, watching? maybe they've slipped into the staging area where it's all being faked? maybe they have an important message, regardless of the reality... a dead planet is of no use to anyone!?
"what's mine is yours"... sharing, caring and everybody fairing... it's not socialistic, it's just being a good person.
"angel of death"... got to be one of worst jobs in the universe huh? so you're made by god to go and punish the wicked... hmmm... well, the bennies might be o.k.
"petroleum"... all about the stuff that seems to drive the world economy engines.
"everything to nothing"... you got it all, you worked so hard for it, maybe you did some stuff you aren't really proud of? it can all come crashing down so fast. emphasis on what you need.
"witness protection blues"... the truth of what really happens when you rat out the guys and leave the old life behind.
"already committed"... gives a new perspective to the online dating game.
"testify"... bringing to light all the little secrets one has hidden away so the table is cleared with a new love.
"over the hill blues"... a new take on the birthday song... for the "boomers"!
"silicone pillow"... ever bought a superb rack for a chick and then she ups and leaves you before you can cash in with them?
"low ridin' the galaxy"... a futuristic look at space exploration from an astronaut's view... it could happen.
