about

This is the best of the last 18 months arranged into some sort of cohesive fashion. All of this work has been inspired by my wonderful soundcloud journey and the friends I have made on the way. Hope you enjoy.
Love Peace Chris

Track Name: 1965
I was born mid Beatles
After I was a fetus
I entered this world
Amid fanfare and herald

I was a child when the hippies
re-invented the cities
Re-made the country
Re-made the Culture
I was born mid Beatles
After I was a fetus
I entered this world
Amid fanfare and herald
Track Name: Endgame
When we left the airport we were into the vibe
We were easily mistaken for a nomadic tribe
I never thought I’d ever see the communists fall
We made it all the way to the Chinese wall
I couldn't see the end ‘cos I was unaware
I couldn't see the light ‘cos I was unaware
I didn't feel the fight ‘cos I was unaware
Never felt the same ‘cos I was unaware

Crossing through the border into Kazakhstan
We took a load of stuff, I was a happy man
Taking in the scenery it was sublime
But I got the notion I’m a philistine
Coming through the sphere of an android dream
Randomly selecting things to make me feel clean
Gotta find a radio to make communication
When I get home I want some good remuneration
I couldn't see the end ‘cos I was unaware
I couldn't see the light ‘cos I was unaware
I didn't feel the fight ‘cos I was unaware
Never felt the same ‘cos I was unaware. Oh no.

Walking through the fields you know we didn’t care
Going through the mountains we were in despair
Finally a station so we climb aboard a train
Looking for the airport ‘cos we want to get a plane
I couldn't see the end ‘cos I was unaware
I couldn't see the light ‘cos I was unaware
I didn't feel the fight ‘cos I was unaware
Never felt the same ‘cos I was unaware
Track Name: This Expanding Universe
I'm a travelling man
Moving through space and time
Good things happen
Sometimes they're sublime

I'm riding on
Another dimension
That is far too weird
In between the lines of convention. - All relative yeah

Some people fight
Some just run
Some people have a bad time
Some others have fun

Accuse me for what I believe
But what have I done?
We're all just moving along
While we go round the sun
Track Name: Scientology
Tom Cruise is coming to get you
Tom Cruise is coming to get you
They're not gonna forget you
They're gonna come and hound you
Tom Cruise is coming to get you
So is John Travolta
I think that it's revolting
Lock up your doors and be bolting
Tom Cruise is coming to get you
I think that he's quite scary
Even though he's not hairy

I stand on the end platform of the tram and am completely unsure of my footing in this world, in this town, in my family. Not even casually could I indicate any claims that I might rightly advance in any direction. I have not even any defense to offer for standing on this platform, holding on to this strap, letting myself be carried along by this tram, nor for the people who give way to the tram or walk quietly along or stand gazing into shopwindows. Nobody asks me to put up a defense, indeed, but that is irrelevant.
(Reading from Franz Kafka - On the Tram)

Tom Cruise is coming to get you
Tom Cruise is coming to get you
They're not gonna forget you
They're gonna come and hound you
Tom Cruise is coming to get you
So is John Travolta
I think that it's revolting
Lock up your doors and be bolting
Tom Cruise is coming to get you
Tom Cruise is coming to get you
I think that he's quite scary
Even though he's not hairy... Oh

Scientology scares me
Scientology scares me
Scientology scares me
Scientology scares me..............................................
Track Name: Ghost
I want to see your ghost
The one that loves me most
You look so pale and white
You run into the night
Track Name: The GREED feat. Tante Meli
We saw the people in chains - We saw the people lose brains
We did our best to set them free - but it was all in vain
The ideology was - designed to take our freedom
Then we built our knowledge, but - The old refused to give

They were the ones with the power
And they ruled to used it
Now we're all paying the price for their greed - for their greed

We couldn't see the future - we only saw the past
It was a special journey - we knew it wouldn't last
They said it was the horsemen - that rode across the land
But I never did believe them - it was done by their own hand

They were the ones with the power
And they ruled to used it
Now we're all paying the price for their greed - for their greed

So now you've got your money - and now you've got your land
What can you now inherit - the line's drawn in the sand
There's nothing left to go for - you've taken all you can
God bless your final journey - I hope you meet your man

You were the ones with the power
And you ruled to used it
Now we're all paying the price for your greed - x4

- for your greed
Track Name: Just To Feel Good Doing Something
Walking through the park
We’re gonna find a place to sit down
Sun is in the sky
An autumn yellow making us frown
Tummy’s finished tickling
And it’s going to my head now
Autumn leaves are falling
They are settling on the ground now

Apple streets are paved
In cinnamon and green sultanas
Through the fields of wheat
The shining yellow grass it wavers
Coming out the shadows
I am seeing my nirvana
It’s a kinda scary now
I’m wearing my pyjamas

Trees are waving wildly
They are looking like a Van Gough
Floating on my feet
It’s like I haven’t got a body
When’s it gonna end
I tell you I’m a kinda happy
I am now suspended
In a kind of animation

Fields of vivid green
The sky is shining pretty bright now
Forming into shapes
Of geometric simplicity
Running through the fields
We just cannot control our laughter
Over the horizon and
Into the ever after
