ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
recorded at Chamber Studios, Granton, Edinburgh, UK - summer of 2011.

TRACK 1: Pivot

Now is the pivot, the point of your death
The dead-weight is balanced on your final breath.
Your relatives stare in, with beards and with ruffs
As you clutch up the covers and gasp on the cusp.

Death is the pivot, your life on on one side
Is a feather compared to the fat counterweight
A few decades kicks hoisted up in the air by
An infinite promise of pleasure or pain

The real's in the air and it's kicking its legs
The fake's on the ground and it won't let you rest so
You clutch at the covers and gasp on the cusp
Of the pivot of death – but it still throws you off.

TRACK 2: Wholefood Strip Club

I'm carrying the fruit that
Suddenly ripens
I'm looking for a place
I can get a square meal.

I'm sick of downloading
Dreams on broadband
I'm looking for a place
I can get a tight seal.

Whole food strip club - legs to the ceiling
Whole food strip club - grain on the floor
Whole food strip club – what a virtuous feeling
Whole food strip club – to have paid that little bit
More.

I'm looking for something
To quicken my pulses
And I'm looking to spend
the rest of my dole

So long as I'm having a
whole-grain burger watching
free-range perfomers
going round a pole

I'm looking for something to quicken my pulse with
I'm looking for some where to stock up on pulses

Whole food strip club - legs to the ceiling
Whole food strip club - grain on the floor
Whole food strip club – what a virtuous feeling
Whole food strip club – to have paid that little bit
More!

TRACK 3: Hey Adam!

We've paid our fare
To form a crowd
cheer in the sun
straw hats and open air

This isn't France
Don't talk to us
We came to watch
But not to join the dance

hey adam! How the beasts behaving?
How's the loneliness of rule?
Heard things have been deteriorating
Ever since your satya yuga

You can push a pomegranate at her
In the warm mid-morning light
You can save the whale to eat it later
Under libra's holy light

TRACK 4: Monkey

In the palace of night
King's asleep in his bedroom
And the stuff of his dreams
Falls like dust on his pillow

But his window is open
And the pollen is flying
And the king breathes it in now
Where it seeds all his dreaming

And the king is your mind
And your mind is the king now
And you have no control
Of the thoughts in your dreams now

On the gate of the palace
There's a soldier on guard now
Trying to keep his eyes open
Cos he's heard there's a thief now

But the evening is balmy
And his eyelids are heavy
So he's falling asleep now
With his mind on the monkey

And the guard is your mind
And your mind is the guard now
And you have no control
Of the thoughts that creep past now

And the king is your mind
And the thief is your mind
And the guard is your mind
And the guard is your mind
