Steam Packet (Big Business song)

Sunday, July 30th, 2017

New material in Progress for album called Election

 

Who is indebted to who

When they provide vital links

They don’t like the deal

They just go bust

 

When they employ so many

who owns who

in the name freedom

What can you do

 

big business is kind

big business is tolerant

When they make lots of money

for offshore bank accounts

 

Western democracy told you that you were free

while the birds and bees keep you busy

revelation at the bottom of your glass

that you were sold what you already owned

Gotta Kill A Chicken By Tuesday

Saturday, May 28th, 2016

Gotta Kill A Chicken By Tuesday

Gotta Kill A Chicken

Gotta Kill A Chicken By Tuesday

Gotta Kill A Chicken

 

If your Chicken you Better run

Or else you will soon be a dead one

Gotta Kill a Chicken By Tuesday

Gotta Kill a Chicken

 

There must be chicken for every one

Gotta kill a chicken

To eat with knifes and spoons

Gotta kill a chicken

 

I am not John Cleese or Billy Bunter

I am solely the chicken hunter

 

If I was a monster with an ugly face

I would not be welcome in any place

I would be a terror to the chicken race

Gotta kill chickens

 

I would punch their beaks and smash their face

Gotta Kill a Chicken By Tuesday

Gotta Kill a Chicken

 

Weather the sky be brown or grey

I Gotta kill A chicken

 

I kill a chicken with a gun

and eat it in a Bun

Gotta Kill a Chicken By Tuesday

Gotta Kill a Chicken

 

Gotta Kill a Chicken By Tuesday

Gotta Kill a Chicken

 

I kill a chicken

and then do some of my finger licking

 

Gotta Kill a Chicken By Tuesday

Gotta Kill a Chicken

 

No chicken will escape

Gotta Kill a Chicken By Tuesday

Gotta Kill a Chicken and it will be well done.

Down to the Sea

Tuesday, March 8th, 2016

Unreleased Bootleg from 1994

Down to the Sea

This is never what I intended

Can’t you see I wanted it to be free

To flow through mind undefined

To take a trip through time

 

But I have to try

If I have to think

I might well just wink

Because you know the game that is in the play

 

Take me down to the sea

I want to be free

Roll along with the sea

 

oh

Take me down to the sea

I want to be free

Roll along with the sea

 

I can watch the moving pieces

That shoot in front of my eyes

Weaknesses that let you fly

You think you know why

 

but you can come

along for a the ride

In to the heart into the things

That make you wonder why

 

I want to go to the sea

 

 

Take me down to the sea

I want to be free

Roll along with the sea

The Whole Story

Monday, January 25th, 2016

This from a bootleg (unreleased) but stands well by itself. ‘The whole Story’ as a law professor said to me if you can not see the down side. then you can not see it all.

The Whole Story

The whole story that was that

The moon is round and so be it

 

Life comes In many seizes

Be small or big

life is for the living

the circle of it all

 

The whole story that was that

The moon is round and so be it

 

I look between your eyes

what is right there

do we meet on the sea

Waters of emotion

I am always swimming

 

The whole story that was that

The moon is round were not done

 

tattoo you with marks of us

After all this are we busted

I thought maybe we could

We are burnt no wonder at all

 

The whole story that was that

The moon is round we can love

Get on up / Step into the Light (Lyrics)

Wednesday, January 20th, 2016

Get on up / step into the light

Written by Cousin Lee released on ‘Social Contract Me’ 2015 featuring Pinky B

 

Modern politics is such a bore

Give me someone who says what they feel

World economics disempowers me

Got to vote for some one who is 500 hundred miles from me

 

Get on up

Get up

Get on up

Get up

I am so dazed confused

The rain falls mainly on the poor

 

Social Democracy

I wanted it contracted

wake up and feel my rights

not to complicated

 

Show me where my taxes go

Work for indifference

Protection from whom

Something worth protecting

 

Get on up

Get up

Get on up

Get up

Heading for the light

The rain falls mainly on the plain

 

Bureaucratic in office

Says were not any economic centre

What should be taught to my child

reason for things to love

disempowerment I was taught

The need for social security

Personal relationships

Of uninspired lives

 

Get on up

Get up

Get on up

Get up

Heading to the light

The sun shines on every one

 

Heading to the light

The sun shines on every one

 

Heading to the light

The sun shines on every one

 

Heading to the light

The sun shines on every one

This song was recorded in Augusts in September 2013 in Gypo's Buggane studio.  The song idea dates back about 15 years ago when I was playing in grunge band in the Netherlands we used it as an intro to a song called fake.  I think the idea behind that song is exploring ideas and becoming engaged in events that surround you. Of course it is perspective. However when one is younger it is possible to feel very uninspired and that change for the better is a hopeless goal. This is not so.

Pre recording we did a number of sessions with Gypo where ideas were thrown against a wall to see what would stick. I had an acoustic demo but substantial rewrote the song and recorded the drum that you hear on the finished version. Gypo took that demo and really reworked it using Pro tools, not only adding trumpets unbeknown to me that he could play himself but also really applying years of knowledge and understanding. He was stickle for the rhythm where I have tendency to let things be very loose he made it tight which is what any dance track needs and took the track to whole new level. While the track is political motivated it was also the point to make something that was danceable uplifting and seductive. We start off at a dark place and move to the light. One can hear that each chorus is progressing somewhere. Pinky B provided the Vocals for this track. In her first studio performance and after much persuasion she put a vocal that required little or no effects and was pretty much spot on.
