GARY HERSELMAN (alias Piet Pers, Bokkie Buys, Methylated Purple, Archie Pelago etc.) is a South African singer and songwriter.

DIE LEMME is Gary and a bunch of artists including: Arno Carstens, Die Gereformeerde Blues Band, Francois van Coke , Andre Geldenhuys ,GuyTillum,the Kalahari Surfers, Valiant Swart, The Radio Rats, Paul Riekert, Willim Welsyn, Toast Coetzer, Albert Frost, Chris Letcher, Frank Opperman, Rian Malan and Nechama Brodie, Victor S. Wolf and Tonia Selley, The Trees, Nux Schwartz, Ampie Omo, Kathy Raven, Sannie Fox and Robin Auld.

Together they have made the album, “Rigtinbefok” comprising 16 Herselman originals and versions of the Johannes Kerkorrel and Gereformeerde Blues Band's "Liefde" and the Radio Rats' "ZX Dan."

Gary first came to prominence in the late 1980’s at a time when a real protest-music culture emerged from the Afrikaner community in South Africa. The sentiments articulated by these artists resonated with a lot of young South Africans and the popularity of the music grew exponentially. This “movement” had a name: Voëlvry, and it was born at Shifty Records’ home-studio, south of Johannesburg.

Gary had a trio around this time, The Kerels, that used to perform at Jameson’s in downtown Johannesburg alongside James Phillips and the Cherry Faced Lurchers. The Kerels released their debut, “Ek Se” in 1988, on Shifty Records and a year or so later the landmark Voëlvry compilation album was released and a tour to promote the album was undertaken. Gary was by then the bass player for Johannes Kerkorrel’s Gereformeerde Blues Band and was renowned for wearing tiny rugby shorts onstage, irrespective of the weather.

Sometime after the Voëlvry tour, Gary invented a “whisky sodden ou” who he called Archie Pelago and in 1991 the Archie Pelago album, “City Country” was released on Underground Records. Gary referred to it as having been “made with mostly bubble gum and elastoplast.” As he put it in his as yet unpublished memoir: - “As far as songs in the traditional sense of the word go, I think some of my best ones appear on that cassette. Of course it’s all heartbreak and snot and stuff but hey, it’s a country record.” Jannie ‘Hanepoot’ van Tonder and Willem Moller, both fellow Voëlvry survivors and ex-GBB appeared on the album.

In 2003 he collaborated with ex-Kerels drummer Neil Fishwick (with whom he grew up and attended the same primary and high schools in Germiston) on the critically-acclaimed Blomkrag project and released the album “Boerecountry”. The album featured Willem Moller, a guitar-slinger of note who has appeared with Rodriguez, Big Sky and Nataniel, to name a few and with whom Gary appeared on Koos Kombuis’ “Niemandsland” album.

Gary worked for twelve years at Hillbrow Record Centre after which he was employed for two years at a compact disc wholesaler. Herselman also founded South Africa’s first truly independent music distributor, Tic Tic Bang, in the 1990s. Tic Tic Bang was very successful in representing South African artists such as Henry Ate/Karma, Koos Kombuis, Johannes Kerkorrel, James Phillips, Mzwhake Mbuli and Jennifer Ferguson amongst others.

Track Name: HEAT OF SEPTEMBER
HEAT OF SEPTEMBER

NI-NI-NI-NI-A-NI-NI……

I’M NOT SURE IF THOSE PLACES ARE COLD, BUT HERE IT’S HOT, THAT’S WHAT WE’VE GOT, YOU KNOW, IT RAINS, BEES, POLLEN, SPRING IS QUICK - YOU WERE RIGHT AGAIN AND IT’S NOT A TRICK, I JUST DON’T KNOW IF THOSE PLACES ARE THERE OR NOT – OR COLD OR HOT. YOU REMEMBER SEPTEMBER I’M SURE, OR PERHAPS YOU’RE STILL HERE, IN THE AIR, LIKE LAST NIGHT WHEN THAT ELECTRIC-LONE-WOLF SAT AND CRIED AGAIN, AS THEY BUST INTO SOMEONE LIVING INSIDE AGAIN. NO-ONE CAME, I NEVER WENT, I WONDERED WHAT YOU WOULD DO…. UNDER FIRECRACKERS YOU NEVER SHOWED FEAR BUT THESE DOGS GET SO, HEY, WELL, YOU KNOW HOW….. OH, NO, WAIT, YOU NEVER MET – BUT THEY DON’T GO, YOU KNOW, TO THE FIRESHOCKSHOW WHERE CRACKERS CACKLE AND YACKLE THE SKY, THOUGH THEY BARK THE DANGER RIGHT ON BY (ARF ARF ARF)…. CHRISTMAS MORNING THE CHURCH BELL PRAYED IN THE AIR, SOME CAME AND SOME OTHERS ARE STILL THERE – WHERE YOU GREW OLDER, RE-TOLD THE BOOK OF BRILLIANT THINGS. THEN WHEN WARM GREW COLDER, YOU SAID – HEY, MAYBE ALL OF THAT STUFF ISN’T EVEN THERE….. (IN THE HEAT)
I SAID………………….. WHAT?! (OF SEPTEMBER)
FROM FALLING OVER, UP YOU GOT. YOU STOOD UP, EVEN WHEN YOU COULD NOT. UP YOU GOT, HEY, UP YOU GOT.

TODAY IT SEEMED MY EYES WERE WET, DID YOU ALREADY KNOW WHY I COULDN’T SING, THOUGH I TRIED AND BEFORE I FORGET, THIS IS WHY IT’S HARDER THIS TIME – WHEN THE LOVE’S GOT SO GOOD – TO SAY TO THE LOVED ONE………………… GOODBYE. BUT YOU DON’T WANT TO HEAR THAT! AND I’D RATHER SHARE A SMILE, SOMETHING PASSING BY, BUT THIS SONG STARTED COMING ON STRONG – IS THIS TAKING TOO LONG? ARE YOU IN SEPTEMBER, MAYBE OCTOBER, NOVEMBER – YOU WILL BE PASSING, PICK ME UP LAUGHING, SEE I WASN’T CHAFFING, THAT STUFF IS STILL THERE, ANYWHILE YOU MAY BE NEARBY, APRIL, NOVEMEMBER, SEPTEMBER…. (IN THE HEAT) JANUARY, FEBRUARY………..(OF SEPTEMBER) - IN THE HEAT OF SEPTEMBER….

YOU KNOW I PICKED UP THE PHONE, I FORGOT YOU WEREN’T THERE. THE HEAT OF SEPTEMBER COMES CRACKING DOWN ON THE EGGS AS THEY HATCH, HERE COMES A NEW BATCH – IN THE HEAT OF SEPTEMBER. IN THE HEAT, THE HEAT OF SEPTEMBER.
I’M FINDING I’M DYING TO SEE YOU SOMEWHERE – I’M TRYING RELYING ON A SOUND FROM SOMEWHERE. THERE’S NO POINT DENYING THAT THIS IS STUPEFYING, ‘CAUSE I STILL FEEL YOU EVERYWHERE! THAT’S WHY I PICKED UP THE PHONE, I FORGOT THAT YOU WEREN’T HOME….

IN THE HEAT – OF SEPTEMBER. IN THE HEAT, OF SEPTEMBER…..
I’M FINDING I’M DYING TO SEE YOU SOMEWHERE – I’M TRYING RELYING ON A SOUND FROM SOMEWHERE. THERE’S NO POINT DENYING THAT THIS IS STUPEFYING, ‘CAUSE I STILL FEEL YOU EVERYWHERE!
Track Name: IT DOESN'T MAKE A SOUND
IT DOESN’T MAKE A SOUND

LAST NIGHT I WATCHED THE TAIL-LIGHTS
OF THE LAST BUS OUT OF TOWN
WET WOODEN SEATS, THOSE EMPTY STREETS,
THE CHAIN-LOCKED SHOP, THAT SHOP CLOSED DOWN

CHORUS:
AND WHEN YOU FALL - DOWN
WHEN YOU FALL - IT DOESN’T MAKE A SOUND

THE MORNING COMES, THE SAD-SUN SAYS STAY IN BED,
‘CAUSE LATER THERE’LL BE RAIN
THE PILLOW IS THE SPACE TO PLACE YOUR HEAD,
TODAY WILL JUST BE ONE MORE STAIN………….
(REPEAT CHORUS)
WHEN YOU FALL IT DOESN’T MATTER WHO’S AROUND
WHEN YOU FALL, YOU FALL DOWN
WHEN YOU FALL, YOU NEVER HIT THE GROUND
WHEN YOU FALL, IT DOESN’T MAKE A SOUND

THE BROKEN FRAME – THE COLOURWATER TRIES TO HIDE THE JAGGED FLOOR
THE HOLES, THE SPACE, THE PLACE TO TRACE THE WAY IS NOW THE WHY, BEFORE

REPEAT CHORUS X2
Track Name: SKY BLUE SKY
SKY, BLUE SKY.

WELL I HAVEN’T SEEN YOU WHEN THIS IS GONE
AND WILL IT HURT NOW THAT ONE AND ONE MAKE ONE
WORDS SPEAK LIKE A SPLASHING BROOK, TINKLING BELLS
AND I CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF YOUR KISSES, TOUCH MY CHEEK I THINK I’M CRYING

THIS FLASH OF BEAUTY IN THIS NEST OF SIN
WIND CHIMES, SOFTLY FALLING SKY, THOSE SILVER SOUNDS
YOU’VE GOT A TOUCH, SO SOFT – AND I CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF YOUR KISSES,
TOUCH MY CHEEK, I THINK I’M CRYING.

AND LOVE IS WATER – AND LOVE IS LOVE

FORM CHANGING FORM OVER TIME
SKY, BLUE SKY – WE’VE GOT STEAM AND WATER AND ICE
THOUGH I HAVEN’T SEEN YOU WHEN THIS IS GONE
IS THIS SCARE TO CARE, TO BE CARED FOR?
ALWAYS MOVING ASIDE, CLOSING THE DOOR
I’M NEVER SURE WHAT TO TAKE AND WHAT TO LEAVE
FORM CHANGING FORM, OVER TIME……..

AND LOVE IS WATER – AND LOVE IS LOVE X2.
Track Name: CORRUGATED IRON
CORRUGATED IRON.


JUST BECAUSE YOU THINK I’M MADE OF IRON, DON’T THINK YOU CAN BEND ME
JUST BECAUSE YOU THINK I’M BROKEN OPEN, DON’T THINK YOU CAN MEND ME
MAYBE YOU’RE STAINLESS STEEL, BUT YOU’RE TOO EXPENSIVE
AND YOU MAKE TOO MANY RULES AND YOU TREAT ME LIKE SHIT
LIKE I’M CORRUGATED IRON, THAT’S IT

I’M A CAR AFTER A CAR SMASH, I’M A ROOF, WAITING FOR THE EGGS TO HATCH
I’M A WALL, I CAN FALL - I CAN BE MOVED
SOMETIMES IN A STACK AND SOMETIMES I AM THIN - I’M CORRUGATED IRON IN THE DUSTBIN
MAYBE YOU’RE STAINLESS STEEL, BUT I DON’T REALLY KNOW
I AM CORRUGATED IRON……………… SO?

JUST BECAUSE YOU THINK I’M TOO FAR GONE. DON’T THINK YOU CAN SEND ME
WHEN YOU REQUIRE MORE DESIRE, DON’T THINK YOU CAN EXTEND ME
MAYBE YOU’RE STAINLESS STEEL, BUT YOU’RE TOO EXPENSIVE
AND YOU MAKE TOO MANY RULES AND YOU TREAT ME LIKE SHIT, I AM CORRUGATED IRON
THAT’S IT!


INSTRUMENTAL.



I’M A SQUATTER CAMP, PEOPLE LIVE IN ME
I’M A FLYING PIECE OF TIN, I CUT ONE INTO THREE
I’M BENT, I’VE BEEN IN THE FIRE AND THE ICE
WHEN I’M AGAINST THE WALL, I AM WAITING ‘TIL YOU SEE
WHERE, OR WHEN, YOU CAN USE ME.
MAYBE YOU’RE STAINLESS STEEL, BUT I DON’T REALLY KNOW
I AM CORRUGATED IRON…..SO…….SO…….. SO……. S-S-S-SO-SO-OOOH,
SO, WHAT!?
Track Name: STANDING ON AIR
STANDING ON AIR.

TELEVISION SHOWS ME WHERE TO GO - STILL, YOU KNOW, YOU NEVER REALLY KNOW
INFORMATION FROM A FRIEND - THOUGHT HE WAS DEAD, BUT HE’S MANAGING TO MEND

CHORUS:
SO WE KEEP ON LOOKING, LOOKING HERE AND THERE - ARE WE ALWAYS GOING TO BE - STANDING ON AIR?

WE LEFT OUR PLACE OF BIRTH, FOR WHAT IT’S WORTH - WHEN THE GANGS AND THE WAR BLEW IN THROUGH OUR DOORS - FUNDAMENTALISTS! TAKE AND RAPE AND MURDER, IS THE CURRENCY OF SADISTS - I LOST MY HEAD WHEN I LOST MY WIFE - THEY BURNED HIS CHILD, ONE MATCH MATCHES ONE LIFE - TRY TALKING TO A PIRATE WHEN THERE’S NOTHING YOU CAN SAY - THERE’S NO WAY WE COULD STAY, IT’S BEEN FIFTEEN YEARS TODAY.

REPEAT CHORUS

NEITHER HERE, NOR THERE, STANDING ON THE AIR. YOU KNOW THEY CAN’T COME HERE – HE SAYS THERE’S NO POINT GOING THERE. WHEREVER HE MAY BE, IS WHERE IT’S SAFER NOT TO SAY. WE DISAPPEAR INTO NOWHERE, IT’S JUST BETTER THAT WAY………. STANDING ON THE AIR WE CAN NEVER GO HOME – AND THEY NEVER WANT US WHERE - WE DESPAIR, WINDBLOWN! NOW FEET KEEP MOVING, LOOKING HERE AND THERE, SEEMS WE’RE ALWAYS GOING TO BE – STANDING ON AIR…………… AH, UH, AH……………

INSTRUMENTAL: - R A D I O

RADIO SHOW TALK LIKE THEY KNOW- WHY THE BARBED WIRE BORDER IS NOT THE WAY TO GO - I WISH I COULD LAUGH, BUT THAT MIGHT MEAN I CARE - AND ANYWAY I’VE GOT TO USE THE DARK TO FIND SOME FOOD SOMEWHERE- SOMEDAY, MAYBE, WE’LL – LAND SOMEWHERE. OR WITH MORE AND MORE OF US DAILY, WE’LL JUST RUN OUT OF AIR……..
STANDING ON, STANDING ON, TRY LANDING ON THE AIR. THOUGH WE PLEAD, THEY’VE GOT THEIR OWN ALIEN WEED. STRANGERS ARE DANGERS, EVEN DOWN ON KNEES, PRAYING – PLEASE DON’T SEND US BACK INTO THE SEAS!

REPEAT CHORUS

FEET KEEP MOVING, LOOKING HERE AND THERE- ARE WE ALWAYS GOING TO BE…………………
STANDING ON - AIR!
Track Name: ANYWAY
ANYWAY.

JA, JA, ANYWAY………….

THINGS WILL HAPPEN IN THEIR OWN SWEET TIME
YOU PAY YOUR MONEY AND YOU STAND IN LINE
THINGS WILL BE WHAT THEY ARE GOING TO BE –
FROM THE DEAD SEA, TO THE SEA OF TRANQUILITY
THINGS WILL HAPPEN IN THEIR OWN SWEET WAY –
YOU MAY MAKE CHOICES, BUT YOU’VE REALLY GOT NO SAY.
THINGS WILL BE WHAT THEY ARE GOING TO BE –
THE STRESS OF STRIFE IS AN OCEAN OF FUTILITY –
ANYWAY…..

ANYWAY, YOU LOSE YOUR LIFE –
IT’S NOT YOUR TIME, IT’S NOT MY TIME-
IT’S JUST SOME TIME TO SPEND SOME TIME –
AND WHEN YOU’RE GONE – TIME CARRIES ON,
YOU’RE JUST A PHOTOGRAPH, PERHAPS A SONG,
REMINDING SOMEONE THAT YOU’RE GONE
(THAT’S IF THERE STILL IS SOMEONE)
OR DID YOU FIND THAT LIFE’S A CRIME,
TIME’S A THIEF THAT STOLE YOUR DESIGN – HAH… ANYWAY,
LOVE WAS A WORD YOU FOUND,
SCRATCHED IN THE GROUND,
SOMEWHERE ALONG THE LINE,
WHILE YOU WERE SCRATCHING FOR FOOD THAT DAY, ANYWAY!
THINGS WILL HAPPEN LIKE THE EARTH AND THE MOON –
SOME EVEN PRAY THAT IT WILL ALL BE DONE SOON –
EITHER WAY, IT DEFINITELY WON’T CONSULT YOU - TICK, TICK, TICK, TICK, TICK, TICK… WHERE ARE YOU ALWAYS RUNNING TO?
ANYWAY, YOU LOSE YOUR LIFE, IT’S NOT YOUR TIME, IT’S NOT MY TIME - IT’S JUST SOME TIME TO SPEND SOME TIME.
WHY WOULD I WANT YOU TO TELL ME WHAT TO DO WITH MINE?
YOU - AND YOU AND YOU BIG SHOT, YOU TALK A LOT FOR ONE WHO’S GOT NOTHING TO SAY- AN IN AND OUT TRAY, FILES AND STAPLES, OLD CHEQUE BOOK, RAPE, TIES AND LIES AND SUITS AND STEALING, PSYCHOLOGICAL DISORDERS – TOOTHBRUSH (ELECTRIC ONE) TWO-IN-ONE CONDITIONER, TORTURE, STIGMA, SQUASH, AMPUTATION, RACKET, STARVATION AND BEER…………. OH – AND SPORT!

WELL, I SUPPOSE IT’S STILL SORT OF SPORT – ANYWAY

DOES ANYTHING SOUND FAMILIAR? GA! WHO GIVES A RAT’S ARSE ANYWAY?

JUST ‘CAUSE YOU’RE FLAPPING YOUR ARMS DOESN’T MEAN YOU’RE FLYING
A COUPLE OF TEARS, A FEW SCARES, DOESN’T MEAN YOU’RE HIDING AND CRYING –
BUT SOME THINGS THERE’S JUST – NO DENYING!
……. AND THE WINNER OF THE BUSIEST MAN IN THE WORLD CONTEST CERTIFICATE….. ANYWAY,

THINGS WILL HAPPEN BUT WE ALL WILL BE FINE-
YOUR HEALTH WILL LEAVE YOU FOR SOMEONE WHO’S HAVING A MUCH BETTER TIME –
WE WILL BE WHAT WE ARE GOING TO BE –
A TINY SPECK OF DUST THAT NOBODY CAN EVEN SEE……

A PICTURE OF YOU ON THE FIRST DAY THAT YOU VOTED - HAVE YOU NOTED THAT YOUR TIME IS UP? – TICK, TICK, TICK, TICK, TICK, TICK, TICK…. HEY! WHERE DID YOU THINK YOU WERE GOING, ANYWAY?
ANYWAY!
ANYWAY X3, OR 1, OR 5, OR SO………..
Track Name: LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL
LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL

PERHAPS YOU’LL SLIP THAT DRESS OFF THE HANGER IN YOUR ROOM
GENTLY DOWN ACROSS YOUR SKIN, THE WAY I WATCH YOU, WATCHING YOU
GOING TO THE MIRROR, TO PRETTY UP YOUR FACE
YOUR CURLS CARESS A TREMOR AS YOU NESTLE INTO LACE

PERHAPS THE DRESS WE CHOSE, IS LIKE THE SONG WE’RE IN
TIME SIGNATURES THAT CHANGE, TRANSPOSE, THE KEY THE KEEPER KEEPS
THE LIPSTICK, LIPSTICK, ON YOUR LIPS – A TRICK THE EYE MAY PLAY
THE SHADOW OF YOUR EYESHADOW LOOKS FOR A PLACE TO STAY

CHORUS:
LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL, JUST LIKE THE MOVIE SAYS
EVEN WHEN IT’S SADLY SO
LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL, EVEN WHEN IT’S SADLY SO
THE LOVE REMAINS SURROUNDING, EVEN WHEN THE LOVED ONE GOES

PERHAPS YOU’LL SLIP THAT DRESS, OFF YOUR SHOULDERS TO THE FLOOR
TO LIE WITH NAKEDNESS BESIDE, TO GIVE TO TAKE, TO TAKE TO GIVE,
THE JOINING OF WHICH WILL BE, FOR WHICHEVER’S SAKE
PERHAPS THE RADIO WILL PLAY THE SONG FOR HIM NOT ME

REPEAT CHORUS

IS THIS YOUR FAVOURITE MOVIE, IS THIS YOUR FAVOURITE MOVIE SONG?
YOU PLAY IT OVER MANY TIMES, IT PLAYS AGAIN ANOTHER TIME
IS THIS YOUR FAVOURITE SCENE, THE PART THEY PLAY THAT MOVIE SONG?
YOU PLAY IT OVER MANY TIMES, IT PLAYS ANOTHER HUNDRED TIMES

REPEAT CHORUS
INSTRUMENTAL
REPEAT CHORUS
THE LOVE REMAINS SURROUNDING, EVEN WHEN THE LOVED ONE GOES
Track Name: SUNDAY THE MORNING
SUNDAY, THE MORNING.

…..AND ON THE BROW OF THE HILL AS THE NIGHT SLIDES THE SLOPE
THE SUN RISES HANGING ON THE END OF A ROPE
IN THE BACK OF A CAR, THERE’S A DOLL WITH ONE ARM
A MAN MANGLES CHICKEN, FRESH-DEAD FROM THE FARM
TWO SWOLLEN AND RED-FACED MEN IN THE STREET
WATCH WHILE A WOMAN’S BREAST BEATS TO HER FEET,
TAKING LARGE BITES - INTO THEIR MEAT

SUNDAY, THE MORNING, IS HEROIN PALE,
HOLLOWING SOCKETS LIE FRAIL WHERE THEY FLY
WHILE ONLY A NEEDLE WATCHES WITH EYE
SILVER AND RIGID, A WISH FOR MORPHINE,
TO SPIKE UP THIS TOWN, TO SUPPRESS THE SCREAM
TO EASE UP THE PAIN OF THIS DESOLATE DREAM

ON THE RUN IN THE MILL, ONLY SINGLES ELOPE
A CAR LOOKS FOR PARKING AND NEWSPAPERS SHOUT SCOPE
SOME TILLS IN THE MILL STILL OPEN UP THEIR MOUTHS
THEY SWALLOW GREEN LUSCIOUS, THEN EMPTY THEIR BOWELS
ON THE PAVEMENT, LIKE BOTTLES, BUST UNDER FEET
THE STREET MEETS A CIRCLE, TURNS BACK DOWN THE STREET
COMPLETE IN THE WAY THAT IT IS INCOMPLETE
I N C O M P L E T E ……
SUNDAY, THE MORNING, LOOKS OUT WITH BLACK EYES
BLODDSTAINS ON POCKETS ARE CRIMSON LIKE LIES
FLY-SPECKLED CHILDREN LIE DEAD IN THEIR ROOMS
WHILE SWEEPERS TRY TO MENSTRUATE THE BROW, OF THE HILL, WITH THEIR BROOMS.
WITH THEIR BROOMS.


YOU WANT TO:
SPIKE UP THIS TOWN, SUPPRESS THE SCREAM,
EASE UP THE PAIN OF THIS DESOLATE DREAM…..

ETC…. AD NAUSEUM AND SHIT… UNTIL OUTRO RIFFS!


(THE BIT ABOUT THE WRONG MAN, WRONG CAR ……….. DON’T KNOW IF WE NEED IT…. MUSIC MIGHT SUFFICE!! – IT ALWAYS DID BEORE)…… or we can jot a few lines down about s’thing…..?

En wat het dan van die boerevrou geword

Die tannie met die bondrok
Blink skoene met ‘n blom
Oo sy was nou
‘n boerevrou
Maar die meisies van vandag
Elastic sport klere is hulle drag

Gee vir my ‘n outeydse vrou
Gee vir my ‘n ware boerevrou
Want ek is steeds ‘n ware boereman

WHO COULD I BE?

WE CAME IN TO DO,
WHAT WE NEVER KNEW.
WERE QUITE SURE,
WE SAW NO LACE,
HIDING OUR FACE

.... AND ME,
WHO COULD I BE,
BUT YOU WITHOUT ME.

WITHOUT YOU,
LETTING ME DO,
WHAT I NEVER KNEW...

WAS SUBLIME,
TIMES WILL LEARN,
HOW OUT OF TIME'S WAY.
IS ON TIME EVERY DAY...
QUITE LIKE,
THE MISTS ON OUR FACE,
MAY NEVER FIND.

ONE PIECE OF THAT LACE,
WE HID BEHIND...

AT TIMES,
THYME SMELLS LIKE THE YEARN,
TO SPIRIT AWAY.

SOME SUBLIME EVERYDAY...
RIGHT UP UNTIL
WHEN YOUR VALENTINE FRIENDS
DREAM US AGAIN.


(REPEAT LAST LINE TWICE, REPLACE US WITH 'YOU' AND 2ND TIME WITH 'ME' )
Track Name: NOT WHAT YOU EXPECTED
NOT WHAT YOU EXPECTED.

I SAW A BENT MAN WALKING, TWO CHILDREN, ONE EACH SIDE - ONE WAS CRYING FOR HIS MOTHER, BUT HIS SISTER HAD MORE PRIDE - THOUGH SHE DID TURN TO PEEP AT AN IMAGE SHE COULD KEEP, TO REMEMBER ON THE NIGHTS WHEN SHE COULDN’T GO TO SLEEP - WHEN YOU DON’T GET WHAT YOU EXPECTED OUT OF LOVE, THEN LOVE’S NOT WHAT YOU EXPECTED. MAYBE ONE LOVE SONG WASN’T GOING TO LAST THAT LONG (ONE OF THOSE LOVE SONGS) – MAYBE, MAY BE - ONE OF THOSE LOVE SONGS WASN’T GOING TO LAST THAT LONG…..
HEY, JUST WAIT A MINUTE!

BOUND TO BE PURISTICALLY CONTROVERSIAL MID-EIGHT REPEAT CHORUS:
THAT SONG’S NOT EVEN ABOUT LOVE, IT’S ABOUT THIGHS AND HEAT AND ROSES FALLING FROM ABOVE, OKAY, OKAY, OKAY, DON’T BUST ME IN MY RHYMES, LOCK ME UP AND THROW AWAY THE KEY. SOME ARE INCLINED TO SAY THE WAY OF THE DESIGN IS SUCH THAT – LOVE, IF YOU WANT IT, JUST GIVE IT AND RECEIVE – BUT IN TRUST, HONESTY AND BILLY JOEL I DO BELIEVE. LOVE IS KIND, LOVE IS PATIENT - IT’S TOLERANT AND UNDERSTANDING. BUT HEY, HEY, I PARAPHRASE – LIKE ONE OF THOSE SHINEY SILVER CARDS. I AM A DANDELION!
WHEN YOU DON’T GET WHAT YOU EXPECTED OUT OF LOVE - THEN LOVE’S NOT WHAT YOU EXPECTED. WHEN YOU DON’T GET WHAT YOU EXPECTED OUT OF LOVE – THEN LOVE’S NOT WHAT YOU EXPECTED. MAYBE, MAY BE – ONE LOVE SONG WASN’T GOING TO LAST THAT – L-L-L-L-L-L-L-TH-THE-THA-
REPEAT CHORUS MID EIGHT THANG:

WHEN YOU DON’T GET WHAT YOU EXPECTED OUT OF LOVE, THEN LOVE’S NOT WHAT YOU EXPECTED. MAYBE ONE LOVE SONG WASN’T GOING TO LAST THAT LONG. MAYBE ONE OF THOSE LOVE SONGS WASN’T GOING TO LAST THAT LONG. (ONE OF THOSE LOVE SONGS). MAYBE ONE LOVE SONG WASN’T GOING TO LAST THAT L-L-L-L-L-L-L (ONE OF THOSE LOVE SONGS) MAYBE ONE OF THOSE LOVE SONGS, WASN’T GOING TO LAST THAT LONG…. J-J-J-JUST
REPEAT FIRST VERSE:

WHEN YOU DON’T WHAT YOU EXPECTED OUT OF LOVE, THEN LOVE’S NOT WHAT YOU EXPECTED X2
UGH-UH………………. (SOUNDS OF BEING PUNCHED BY LURV!) RELATIVE MINOR OUTRO……………….. (WITH SOME BACKWARDS SHIT – OPTIONAL EXTRA). ‘SPECTED OUTTA LUV, ‘SPECTED OUT OF LUV.
Track Name: ZX DAN
ZX DAN


My name is ZX Dan, I am a spaceman.
My galaxy is doomed, so I've moved to your moon.
So turn up your radio, and play me that rock and roll,
Stop feeling so blue- I'm coming down to you.

I've watched you on my screen, you're sweet, sweet sixteen
I've monitored your mind, You're just the loving kind...
So turn up your radio, and play me that rock and roll,
Stop feeling so blue- I'm coming down to you.

Meet me tonight at your window;
Dress warmly for absolute zero
And I'll come down as quiet as the snow
And we'll go for a glide in my U.F.O.

The whole of outer space, is tuned into the human race
From pole to frozen pole, your world transmits rock & roll
So turn up your radio, and play me that rock and roll,
Stop feeling so blue- I'm coming down to you.
