REVIEWS

“An early album highlight is ‘Elisa Lam’… [it] has that paranormal vibe; think the themes to Arthur C. Clarke’s Mysterious World or The X-Files, mixed with Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds. … ‘You Do Not Do’ provides another collection of ’80s influenced accessible synth-driven pop songs.” – Hamilton Underground Press

LYRICS

METRONOMIKA

the model is an emergency
the crumble is a catastrophe
there’s nothing new in economy
metronomika, new wave

the saddest part of our history
is inability-ogamy
coming up with phrenology
repetition is no way

to categorise a masterpiece
same as the drone of a press release
the subtlety is a blasphemy
metronomika, new wave

do you need anything else i ask?
repetition is always

the answer to what you need to do
the answer to what they ask you
you should not take no for an answer
you should never do what they want you to

the ending is a blessed relief
from the eternity of repeat
hearing this ending over and over and
metronomika, new wave

will never as so popular
as edm-infused opera
or star wars cinematographer
why fade when you can star wipe?

the answer to what you need to do
the answer to what they ask you
you should not take no for an answer
you should never do what they want you to

the ending is a blessed relief
from the eternity of repeat
hearing this over and over and over and
metronomika, new wave

will never as so popular
as edm-infused opera
or star wars cinematographer
why fade when you can star wipe?

ELISA LAM

elisa lam was sooner or later
soluble in nature, paranomenclature
she’s never coming back, no elevator
now

i’ve been at loss before
there’s nothing i’ve never been able to comment upon
with lies

she’s never coming back, he’s made it sure of that
flagg is a monster, at least he’s walking
out

i’ve been at loss before
there’s nothing i’ve never been able to comment upon
with lies

i punch the numbers in, i read the LCD
how can i be so sure, that she’s not fucking with me
fingers are meant to bend towards the human
heart
i’ve been at loss before
there’s nothing i’ve never been able to comment upon
with lies
hit me a line of spin, another sub within
a colour black as mud, a manna from above
tuberculosis of hotel cecil, of course
it’s not a vaccine

ANTIFAXXERS

the needle is here, diseases are there
it is time to make your mind up
do you want to live, and do you want to give
your kids the chance to be grown-up
put trust in statisticians, and ditch your superstition
it’s rotting away your mind and future
and asperger’s not the end of the world
and it’s better than being a martyr

to your parents’ cause, only idiots pause and wait
we cannot be fooled, by a kamikaze tool, no way
it is just no use, it is lies and heresy, abuse
take the kids away, nothing matters when you’re crazy
it’s just not the same

the pinholes you get should never upset
anyone who wants to be your friend
the scratches you want are placebos that haunt
the scared and dumb, in the deep end
it’s like asking an astrologer a question for astronomers
it won’t be the truth, it never will be
and asperger’s not the end of the world
and it’s better than being a martyr

to your parents’ cause, only idiots pause and wait
we cannot be fooled, by a kamikaze tool, no way
it is just no use, it is lies and heresy, abuse
take the kids away, nothing matters when you’re crazy
it’s just not the same

you’re killing the children
you’re fucking the future
you belong in jail
you’re cain to the abel

you’re killing the children
you’re fucking the future
you belong in jail
you’re cain to the abel

you’re killing the children

WE KAMIKAZE

we kamikaze, they call us paparazzi
but we just want to see you up close
a better picture, we wouldn’t want to miss you
stay still, i’ve got you right in my sights

i don’t care about the consequences

what about the babies, the children and the maybes?
the ladies and the scopophobic
what about the right to not have a plane fall onto
the top of my head when i’m in my yard

we kamikaze don’t care
we paparazzi are where
the public want us to be for them
we kamikaze don’t care
in fact we like it when we’re
the subject of your just hate

and it is what it is

we kamikaze don’t care
we paparazzi are where
the public want us to be for them, like you

la de da de da daaa

get with the programme
the push into the mainland
the grip on upon the mainstream discourse
what about the right to not have a plane fall onto
the top of my head when i’m in my yard

we kamikaze don’t care
we paparazzi are where
the public want us to be for them
we kamikaze don’t care
in fact we like it when we’re
the subject of your just hate

and it is what it is

we kamikaze don’t care
we paparazzi are where
the public want us to be for them, like you

DOLLAR DOLLAR (GET THE MESSAGE)

stop making that noise i can’t hear anything
stop rocking that beat i haven’t got the swing
stop taking the piss, i haven’t changed a bit
just look at me now, i am the total shit

there’s just one thing you know
i turned right-wing many years ago
in fact, i own this sound
get a job hippie, money makes the world go round

dollar dollar, money, hallelujah praise be
get the message
dollar dollar, praise be, come and get the money
get the message

how is that minimum wage working out for you?
i cut it a dollar to buy cordon bleu
and then i glazed it with gold for kicks
everything tastes better with carcinogens

but it’s okay you see
my money buys better healthcare for me
i put a patent on sound
get a job hippie, money makes the world go round

dollar dollar, money, hallelujah praise be
get the message
dollar dollar, praise be, come and get the money
get the message

take a look at what i did to my wife
something similar i did to my life
plasticated is an ugly word
but what is seen can never be unheard
i want this to be a lesson to you
think of me as yoda, you can be luke

dollar dollar, money, hallelujah praise be
get the message
dollar dollar, praise be, come and get the money
get the message

dollar dollar, money, hallelujah praise be
get the message
dollar dollar, praise be, come and get the money
get the message

MAGIC FOR SALE

everybody’s looking for magic at the corner store
chasing down the same old dream
don’t run away
don’t you turn away from me

everybody’s hoping for nothing but an open door
listening to static, i
don’t run away
don’t you turn away from me

everybody knows it can never be true
magic isn’t made, it is just a point of view

everybody’s looking for miracles and nothing more
looking for the shortcut, I
chose the long way
made it hard for myself, why?

everybody knows it can never be true
magic isn’t made, it is just a point of view

TELEMERES

so if you want it, why don’t you just get it?
that is the magic
it’s simple, automatic
a neverending mask of healthy living
a simple agent
i don’t know why you want it

and if it’s uphill, reinvent the wheel
give it a motor and reangle the rudder
redo the map and reroll the d20
botox or detox
i don’t know why you want it

all i want is to be that young again
all i want is to be that young again
all i want is to be that young again
all my life i’ve longed to be that young again

HEADLINE

the front page news, it’s all about kirsty
nothing else is wrong, we’re just bloodthirsty

calling all stations
we’ve got a good one here
calling all nations
we’ve got the problems solved

we don’t need your help

click click along, it’s what you all asked for
why does it take a song, to heat up this cold war?

calling all stations
we’ve got a good one here
calling all nations
we’ve got the problems solved

we don’t need your help

and if I’ve killed one man, I’ve killed two
you do not do any more, black shoe
and If I’ve killed one man, I’ve killed two
you can not do any more

we don’t need your help

PARALYSYSTEMIC

why do they continue to be the
nut i never crack open it’s like i have
perforated barricades and holes
in my palisade i want
to be the one who knocks

rushing at the balustrade with our
cutlery and magic swords
we might as well
carry out the last resort, plan r
what do you expect to do

we’re lost within the past and we can not start again
we need systemic insurrection
so screw the past
it’s not the one we’re fighting for

they live a life of undeserved luxury
a tax upon your shit history
so screw the past
they’re not the ones we’re fighting for

do you want to own a house?
and a job you really, really want?
perhaps a fence to avoid a bad neighbour?
well, ah
i might have some news for you

we’re lost within the past and we cannot start again
we need systemic insurrection
so screw the past
it’s not the one we’re fighting for

they live a life of undeserved luxury
a tax upon your shared history
so fuck the past
they’re not the ones we’re fighting for

I SINGLED OUT YOUR HEART

there’s nothing that she cannot do
there’s nothing that she cannot say
she’s got me optimistic
i singled out your heart

i cannot be the one you depend upon
to fight for all our lives
my alibis are useless now

analyse what you want
single out my heart

IGNORAMUS

whatever you have to say
whenever you have to say it
no matter the merit of the shit
you have the right to spray it
all over the common space
all over the human race
no matter the efforts to erase
the blight upon our faces

we only moderate the worst

and if you have a life to live
i’d recomemmend you disable the scroll
enable your soul

and if you have a life to live
i’d recomemmend you disable the scroll
enable your soul

nothing good can come
from a flick of the finger

whatever you have to say
whenever you have to say it
it doesn’t matter how racist or stupid it is
you made it
all over the twittersphere
on facebook, you look, it’s there
they’re coming, it’s comedy
except for those they want to erase

we only moderate the worst

and if you have a life to live
i’d recomemmend you disable the scroll
enable your soul

and if you have a life to live
i’d recomemmend you disable the scroll
enable your soul

nothing good can come
from a flick of the finger

RED AS THE SUNRISE, BLACK AS THE MOON DIES

bought some empathy at a sale
but it came with a bad cocktail
mixed with it was a foreign pain
i don’t want to feel it again

took it back and said, what the hell
i don’t want to be this unwell
he took a look and said what you’ve got
is a serious case of the have-nots

red as the sunrise
black as the moon dies
not slave to all of your lies

red as the sunrise
black as the moon dies
we’ve got the truth on our side

had to go to the doc today
over the hills and far away
the train was late and my firstborn died
but i guess that’s what i get for being born on the wrong side
