Track Name: Detective Perspective
Detective Perspective

A rubber duck family afloat at the sea
In a vast reef of rubble and an insolent plea,
They’re swimming in circles and searching for sense
And wait for another aeon to commence.

A cracked submarine, four warheads amiss,
Deep down you can hear the chanting of fish:
‘Rust and remembrance, interdependence,
Blubber and flubber and amiss...’

Redwood and cedar entwined in a waltz:
Each year a step and every other a halt.
A ballet in amber, just a riddle at dawn,
A million in timber unravelled the saw.

Detective Perspective,
Looks like you’ve got yourself a case.
Detective Perspective,
I don’t think you can turn that one away.
Detective Perspective,
Please would you shed some light:
We talk about ebb, we talk about flow,
Do we talk about the tide?

Colon and liver are playing a game of chess,
And the scrotum’s quite good, but the brain is the best.
But in different matters, alternate affairs,
The head is quite useless, but the heart is right there.
And ‘Yes,’ nods the nodder, ‘I’ll do as I will!’
‘Yes,’ plots the plotter, ‘I’ll do as I feel!’
And plotting his course, clutching the wheel,
He drives to buy shit in two tons of steel.

A buzz in the grass, a humble bee, in the morrow she flies.
A cough, pretty rough, a ladybug lays down to die.
All creatures afloat, all creatures so high in a myriad of fields
All tainted with poison for maximum yields.

Detective Perspective,
Looks like you got yourself a case.
Detective Perspective,
I don’t think you can turn that one away.
Detective Perspective,
Please would you shed some light:
We talk about ebb, we talk about flow,
Do we talk about the tide?
Track Name: Embers
Embers

Once upon a time the pearly sun fell on my face
And childhood sounded free with chimes and bells.
Little did I know that I was meant to be a slave
And subjected just like everybody else.
Until that dismal day that dreary stranger came to me
And meant it was required to grow up,
He said ‘Boy, you see, we run this very odd machinery,
In which I need you to become a cog.’

Turning, turning,
Spin the world higher and higher.
Burning, burning,
Burn like embers drawn from the fire.

Hush! And you can hear the woodworks creaking
Under the heavy load of lousy plush decor.
Hush! And you can hear the puppets squeaking
In neon harmonies and songs of evermore.
But work! And you shall hear the coins a-dripping,
A soothing tinkle, sonic balm on your wounds.
Work! And you shall plent’ly be a-sipping
From brimless crystal, flowering with boons.

Turning, turning,
Spin the world higher and higher.
Burning, burning,
Burn like embers drawn from the fire.

Is it not cruel to send the unsuspect adolescent
On a ravaging crusade against himself?
Is it not misery? A constant state of bigotry?
Gradually becoming someone – someone else?

Turning, turning,
Spin the world higher and higher and higher and higher.
Burning, burning,
Burn like embers drawn from the fire.
Track Name: Troll
Troll

On a misty mountain morning, mirthlessly and mad,
Don Juan the mountain troll fell right out of bed.
His nose a dripping icicle, his hair a wiry mess,
When with a whump! he waxed the floor with excess body fat.
When with a whump! he waxed the floor with excess body fat.
Confessing:

I love my mountain life, but sometimes I don’t.
Usually I abide my nightmares, but sometimes I just won’t.
Boy, I love my cave a-dwelling, but now I’m not so sure,
What it is I do and what the hell I’m a doing it for.

Don Juan what you’ve been dreaming?
Pick your head up from the floor!
Things are not as they are a-seeming,
What’s behind that cellar door?
All the things you’ve been amassing
Drag you to the mountains core,
All the things you’ve been caressing
Make you so afraid for more.

Esmeralda mountain princess woke to her husband’s spleen
Sounding from beneath the bed, both absurd and serene.
Don Juan, my mountain love, she said, I know your trouble’s deep,
But tell the sprites that haunt your soul at nighttime I must sleep.
Tell the sprites that haunt your soul at nighttime I must sleep.
Confessing:

I love your mountain life, but sometimes I don’t.
Usually I abide your nightmares, but sometimes I just won’t.
Boy, I love your cave a-dwelling, but now I’m not so sure,
What it is I do and what the hell I’m doing it for.
