about

This album was recorded in five separate studios with five different combinations of players and engineers over a period of twelve months. The arrangements go from a standard four-piece band to what was referred to as a tiny orchestra at the time (piano accordion, violin, tenor ukulele). There are also solo recordings and some production mastery from J Walker and Lloyd Barrett. All of it adheres to an unsettling stripped back, open aired palette.

Track Name: I'm Away
I’m Away

In the fullness of time
I washed my hands and I
Cleaned myself up and I
Changed my plans

I’m away, I’m away

All the illness, the rack
And the ruin me now
Well it’s here to stay and I’m
Leaving town

I’m away, I’m away

All the indolence down at the dome
I took a five figure number
I called it a home
You don’t know how lucky you are
Till you’re the tattooed king
And queen at the bar

Invisible man
Got broke and banned
Invisible man
You’ve been dieting
Track Name: Into The Trees
Into the Trees

Let’s go walking into the trees
Come a lolling into the trees
Have your old fashioned way with me
There’s a little whisper and it’s on the breeze
Come a lolling into the trees

You never know dear
What becomes of us there
Don’t you be afraid
In the trees

In the forrest where the forrest falls
Everything is the same as before
Should you dare or should you not
Take a little old short cut
Come a lolling into the trees

Oh it’s you dear
I want to take you there
Only you dear
There ain’t nothing I can do but say to you

Come on down
Come on down
Come on down

You can sleep wherever you fall
You can sleep while you’re still young
In that frozen familiar repose
There’s a little whisper and it’s all yours
Come a lolling

Into the trees
Into the trees
Into the trees
Track Name: Gentle As She Goes
Gentle as she Goes

You snuck up on me and
We took off our wings and
We made something
That was built for two
I know that you meant it
I sure didn't mind and
At the time
We were both talking true

Now I don't know that I loved you
As well as I could
I was loving you for good

It was never an easy road
We had our share of trouble
But we had something special
That's what people knew
We always seemed to work it out
We were fierce then humble
Then one day babe you told me
You were shooting through

I will wait right here
with my best intention
I will set my jaw
I will keep my good face on

And my faith in you

So darlin' you can have your wings
Let them take you where you go
Where you go
You can take a piece of me too
See what the days bring
See what the time holds
And what the days before
Grow to meant to you

I will wait right here
With my best intention
I will set my jaw
I will keep my good face on

And my faith in you
Gentle as she goes
Track Name: Somewhere By Now
Somewhere by Now

Honey I'm tired of being in fashion
Sick of going out
Talking and not listening
Standing in the crowd

These people make me lonely
These drugs make me a prick
I'm so tall and loud and funny
that I can't hear the music

Ain't you gotta be somewhere by now
Ain't you gotta be somewhere by now
Ain't you gotta be somewhere else

I'm worried about my parents
Aching for my kids
Longing for a conversation
that's gonna mean something

Tomorrow when our heads are full
of all that molten broken rock
Tomorrow when the daylight breaks
and just don't let up

Ain't you gotta be somewhere by now
Ain't you gotta be somewhere by now
Ain't you gotta be somewhere else

I'm sick of all the hurry
It's here that I step off
No-one's gonna notice
in the uber groovy mob

I'm gonna find a place somewhere
and shut the hell up
I'm taking all my bacon
and I'm climbing from the trough

Ain't you gotta be somewhere by now
Ain't you gotta be somewhere by now
Ain't you gotta be somewhere else
Track Name: The Change
The Change

It was the greatest show on earth
It was the main event
So many people there was
No one left to watch it

All the oblivious sons
The heirs to oblivion
They are the fortunate ones
And they wait for the change to come

In the middle of the show
There was a word to tell
To show that we’d been told
But then nobody said it

Because Oh
The change, the change had come
Oh the change, the change had come

All the oblivious sons
The heirs to oblivion
They are the fortunate ones
And they wait for the change to come

Because Oh
The change, the change had come
Oh the change, the change had come
Track Name: Any Day
Any Day

Know the pretty thing hold it close to you
All the magic, wonderous and the true

All the lonely roads
Right there for you
All the suffering
Is yours to choose

There are youthful dreams in the eyes of the old
So keep your precious hold on everything
You're never gonna know

All the lonely roads
Will be lonely anyway
The soothed soul could be yours
Any day
