Your Bubble - OLDER

YOUR BUBBLE

Auckland house prices are going nuts while families living in cars increase at the same alarming rate. The world is self imploding, we're on the brink of WW3. But as long as the All Blacks are winning and you've made a killing on your property, you are safe and warm inside your bubble. Bless you New Zealand. Lay low and stay oblivious. Stick to your gossip magazines and reality shows. Ignore world events. Yup, that's the attitude. Not.

Released 28th November 2015

LYRICS

Front page outrage
Maddy's fallen off the stage
Kate's a little naughty with her no shows (oh dear)

WAGs are fighting on the beaches
All the boys observe their features
Just a little titalation for the paparazi lens

It's ok there is no trouble
Safe and warm inside your bubble

But how much is your house worth and did you see the game?
The world is always changing but you just stay the same

Greenpeace, climbing trees
Stamping feet, minorities
Just a little something to see you through the weekend?

Fighting for your birth right
Drinking on a boys night
It's all about priorities, crossing I's and dotting T's

It's ok there is no trouble
Safe and warm inside your bubble

But how much is your house worth and did you see the game?
The world is always changing but you just stay the same

Putin's playing war games
Corban's got his PR pains
Merkel's looking rattled by a kickback in the Bundestag

Dozen dangerous hot spots
Joining all the crazy dots
Did you see the bombers leave and did you count them back again?

It's okay there is no trouble
Safe and warm inside your bubble

But how much is your house worth and did you see the game?
The world is always changing but you just stay the same
You just stay the same
You just stay the same

Mr Breezy - OLDER

MR BREEZY

"Storm clouds gathering in far away lands. Take the moments while we have them in our hands." The world is getting unsafer by the day. Little did we imagine, having lived through the heights of the Cold War and the end of nuclear proliferation, that it would come to this. For years no one mentioned nuclear weapons, they were a part of a frightening history. Now nations threaten to use them as children throw firecrackers. Maybe here in NZ we will miss the initial worst of it, but it's not all about us, there are millions who won't if it happens. Besides it will affect everyone on the planet, and so we remember the unpublished 'Protect and Survive' UK Government booklet from the 1980s. 32 pages to strike fear into anyone's heart. Those times were real, and they are again. This is our take on it - we used to say 'kiss your arse goodbye' if it ever happens, now we say go to the beach and enjoy the last few moments.

LYRICS

We've awakened from a dreary haze
A drunken slumber that's stretched for days and days and days
Both barrels burnt. no caffeine in sight
Yesterday is dusted, the sun is shining bright

No time for sleep, no missing treats
No holding horses
Count to three, kick back the sheets
Make mine over easy, Mr Breezy
Your grab the key, I'll find the Keates

Not forever, can feel it in my bones
I'll pick the flowers, you pick the skimming stones
Tame the tide for hours and talk of Rubenstein
Laugh until the tears fall, and be glad we are alive

No time for sleep, no missing treats
No holding horses
Count to three, kick back the sheets
Make mine over easy, Mr Breezy
Your grab the key, I'll find the Keates

Freedom is a beautiful thing - you have to take it, demand it, make it yours. Sometimes you get to do it together, then it tastes so much better.

LYRICS

Wind up your window I've seen where the time goes
Dirty little secrets and the way that your mind blows
Read the fine print on the back of the tin
You don't scare me with that innocent grin

Go where we dare to venture
Be like peas in a pod you said
When we crash back down to earth
We'll fix it with glue you said

Take an inch, take a bite, take a piece of me
Swallow me alive and spit out the best of me
Take a breath, repeat after me you said

Stake a claim, sink a shaft, mine the source of me
Freefalling down, keep a hold of me
Tandem lovers who never hit the ground

Can't untaste you, why would you want me to?
Drag me under like the way you're supposed to do
Peel back the layers 'til there's only skin
Then tunnel deep under 'til you break your way in

Go where we dare to venture
Be like peas in a pod you said
When we crash back down to earth
We'll fix it with glue you said

Take an inch, take a bite, take a piece of me
Swallow me alive and spit out the best of me
Take a breath, repeat after me you said

Stake a claim, sink a shaft, mine the source of me
Freefalling down, keep a hold of me
Tandem lovers who never hit the ground

You take my weakness
I'll drain your strength
We'll give it all
Let's call it even
Come on let's let it go and fall

Take an inch, take a bite, take a piece of me
Swallow me alive and spit out the best of me
Take a breath, repeat after me you said

Stake a claim, sink a shaft, mine the source of me
Freefalling down, keep a hold of me
Tandem lovers who never hit the ground

Apathy

Apathy - OLDER

APATHY

Things are happening in monumental proportions around the globe and it seems many look out their window and observe. They twitch their curtains and, like the dumbed down reality of television broadcast to billions, while on their very doorstep they choose not to see it. You see "things happen to other people, in other neighbourhoods, in other countries". 

Out of pure frustration APATHY highlights the mellow many, those that have become numb to their own emotions and who fail to have an opinion. Meanwhile a 'revolution' takes place. 

It's a raw song - we don't believe in endless production.

LYRICS

There is no next time, maybe
No cheap cigar tricks baby
You lay like rigamortus
Has already set in

Where is your voice of change
Your call to rearrange
Your lack of roar is booming
Your end of life is looming

Your silence drowns the thunder
The storm will take you under
Resist the urge to cower
You have the key to power

Rise up and make those choices
Inhale your inner voices
Awake the sleeping dogs
Unleash the demagogues

Apathy breeds apathy, apathy

Your pulse is barely beating
A soul that's past retreating
No maybe, if and when
This is your carpe-deim

The air is charged with changes
The static rearranges
Your mind is past dialating
Too late for contemplating

The rage has split the street
Close curtains be descrete
Head down and blinkered eyes
Your choice, you're paralysed

Uprising, warnings posted
All indolence is noted
Your conscience, absolution
Now comes revolution

Apathy breeds apathy, apathy
C'est la vie is not for me
