Rule Great to see ES&tMZ on BC. Cool grooves but also working to create better conditions for muso's. It's a win win.
On the first listen this is a sonically mature album, in terms of classy, varied, interesting and lyrically sincere and, dare I say, deep.
If that doesn't float your boat, it's dang foot tappable Favorite track: Uncomfortable.

about

Free Trade Music Certified - www.fairtrademusic.info

“Fair Trade Music” is an initiative designed to transform music in much the same way “fair trade” has transformed the value chain for agricultural products such as coffee.

Music creators receive almost none of the increasing revenues generated by the enjoyment of their music through digital music providers such as streaming services. By clearly designating music services and businesses that are willing to work with music creators to correct this unsustainable situation, consumers will be given “fair” choices – ones that ensure that the songwriters, artists and musicians whose music they enjoy, fairly participate in revenues.

Track Name: Hot Coals
Hot coals laying on my motorcade / Jewelry gone, eyes still blue / Thin memories in love with you, my hoary fire / In love with you.

Get the fuck out my sight.

Cold eats the flesh of broken hearts / tender the strike of tinder gods.
Hot coals.
Embers across a rayless sky / still warm my soul, I often cry.
Hot coals.

Slag reveries in love with you / my hoary fire, in love with you.

Stay the fuck in my heart.

Hot coals tonight, Cimmerian.
Hot coals to die, Cimmerian.

Heavy the tongue of tinder ray / shot by the road, a slow decay.
Hot coals.
Heady, the musk of cinder love / ashes beneath her tender rug.
Hot coals.

Slag reveries in love with you / my hoary fire, drip from the skies.

Stay the fuck in my heart.

Hot coals to die, Cimmerian.
Hot coals alive, Cimmerian.

Freedom of / the dying man is God.
Freedom of / the dying man is God.
Track Name: Uncomfortable
What chall call freedom I cant call no,
What chall call freedom just a word yea,
What chall call freedom looked like guns to me,
Your guns look like fear to me.

Uncomfortable you got to get uncomfortable

What chall call justice I cant call no,
If I cant breathe I cant call no.
What chall call terror I do call but…
Too many people know I must call us…

Uncomfortable you got to get uncomfortable

What chall call Christians I can’t call no,
Christ knows I can’t call no,
What chall call ______ look like slaves to me,
too much truth on my mind yeah

Uncomfortable you got to get uncomfortable

What chall call beauty I can’t call no
What chall call beauty just a show yeah
What chall call ugly I call real yeah
What chall call ugly I call real yeah
And real I can trust, trust I call beauty yeah,
Rust I call beauty yeah…

Uncomfortable you got to get uncomfortable
Track Name: Somewhere
Everyday a hole in my pocket, every night I’m alright,
When it’s kisses I’m on a rocket, I believe I’m going somewhere,
She got a belly full of baby, ya she say it gonna be fine
I believe her, but I’m crazy,
I believe we’re going somewhere…

Somewhere along I saw her wondering,
Lonely and wondering, so lonely and wondering,
Now we’ve come together and we’re wondering home

I believe, I believe we’re going somewhere

Everyday a hole in my pocket, every night I’m alright,
When it’s kisses I’m on a rocket,
I believe we’re going somewhere
Got no money in my t-shirt, see me flying on the freeway,
Me and you and baby Ebert
I believe we’re going somewhere…

Somewhere along I found you wondering
Lonely and wondering, so lovely and wondering
Now we’ve come together and we’re wondering home

I believe we’re going somewhere
Somewhere…

You love your man
Crawling on the land
With the mercy of a god
To help you make a man
You make a man…

Speedways on I’m gone
I’ve got me.
Track Name: No Love Like Yours
Don’t know my attitude, don’t know a thing or two,
Ain’t sure about my name, don’t know my style,
Don’t know the dictionaire, don’t know what clothes to wear
I’m just in love with you, I don’t know Love

No Love,
No Love
No Love like yours woman
Show me love, show me love

Teach me love, hear me love,

I don’t really know the day, cant trust the light,
Don’t really eat, don’t read or write,
I don’t trust your looks, honey you’re too good lookin’
I’m not sure it counts - you’re too kind

No Love,
No Love
No Love like yours woman
Show me love, show me love, Mmm…

No Love, My Love!
Teach me love -
No Love, My Love!
Hear me Love –
No love, My Love!

Don’t know America, don’t know the bootstrap shimmy,
I can’t dance on bullshit time
And I’m in trouble ‘cause I know money’s theft,
I’m gonna rob a bank on your dime,
But in the morning light, spinning like a 45
I’m in love with you.
I don’t know love,

No Love,
No Love
No Love like yours woman
Show me love, show me love

Teach me love
Hear me love.
Track Name: Wake Up The Sun
I’m tired of God, tired of church
I’m tired of Jesus, I’m trying to serve…
No Religion
My Religion is Love.

I’m tired of Koran
I’m sick of Mohammed

No Religion –
Love!

All that you wanted
Is all that you found in your heart.
All that you wanted is all that they took from you…

I’m tired of Buddha
So bored of Abraham
I’m tired of Krishna –
Feels good to say I am!

No Religion –
My Religion is Love.

(God approves this message):

LOVE

All that you wanted
Is all that you found in your heart
All that you wanted
Is all that you found in your heart
LaLaLaLaLaLALaLaLaLaLaLaLa
Track Name: Free Stuff
Hey, Hey,
Everybody stealing my Ha!
Everybody taking my Hey!
Everybody stealing my Ho!
Ho, ho!
Everybody taking my Hey!
Everybody stealing my Ya!
Everybody taking my Ho!

Shut the front door and leave something
Never was mine
What it means not to free something
'Tween you and I.

Hey, Hey,
Everybody stealing my Heart!
Everybody taking my Hey!
Everybody stealing my Ho!
Ho, ho!
Everybody taking my Hey!
Everybody sitting in my Yeah!
Everybody taking my Ho!

Shut the front door it means nothing
'Tween you and I
What I means not to free something
Never was mine.

Hey, Hey,
Everybody stealing my Ya!
Everybody taking my Heart!
Everybody stealing my Ho!
Ho, ho!
Everybody taking my Ya!
Everybody sitting in my Hey!
Everybody stealing my Ho!

What wasn't yours you had to give away
Or the mad'll come round to enslave em all
What wasn't yours you had to give away
But you know its in your mind its in your mind.
Track Name: Let It Down
The Dawn fixed behind a curtain,
Two fingers of satin spun in the moonlight,
Playing the air - no home,
Spinning in the sunlight, remember us laughing
On Acid
Remember the forest – home.

Let it down
Let it be
Let it heal
From memory

Member you, member me, member love
Memories.

Sex, more like incest,
The violence of cartoons
On eggshells of platinum,
Burned in the fire – friends.
So then you’re gone
To trade gold for pennies,
When our love was free
Remember you always – friend.

Let it down
Let it be
Let it heal
From memory

Let is down, let it rip, let it dust, let it fly
Member love,
Memories Memories Memories, Mmmm.
Track Name: Perfect Time
What is a cold-blooded mad man to do,
With a smile across his teeth and a chest full of goo,
And it cuts through my junk,
And it smash up my eyes,
And it sings like a song ‘fore you die

Sunny day shootings,
Breakfast beheadings,
Lunchtime Wartime,
Armageddon,
God! tell me what to do…
It’s a perfect time for love.

Never a punk smiled so wide,
Never have teeth seen so much sky,
And it smash up my junk,
And it screws up my eyes,
And it sings like a song before you die

Mountain top chokings,
Afternoon rapists,
Primetime Wartime,
I can’t take it
God! tell me what to do…
Is it time for love?

Whatever colors you wear,
Oh! They gonna bleed some day
Some rainbow day..
We’ll have the perfect time….

Skipping, hugging, laughing, singing,
Dancing, romancing, spinning, singing
God! tell me what to do…
It’s a perfect time for love…
With you…
Track Name: Lullaby
Earfy Birfy,
Bossy, angry,
Isn’t this a perfect love?
If I could stop the world from turning,
Round and round and round and round!
The world turn around and all I see is … ,
Eartha, homey, soft and boney,
Isn’t it a simple love,
Sweet as honey, strangely funny,
How could I, the mad man dressed in chain,
Conjure such an angel in my name,
Aren’t you the freshness of a dream,
If only I could protect you from me,
If only - but I fear it will be my fault,
If ever my dear you act adult…

And round and round and round and round!
The world turn round and all I see is…
Round and round and round and round
The world turn round and all I see…

If only you can learn not of Manrude
If only you could go on in the nude
If only - but I fear it will be my fault
If ever dear you act adult
And sadder though it is, but when I’m gone
And you have a child all of your own…

And round and round and round and round!
The world turn round and all I see…
Track Name: The Ballad of Yaya
Block out the sun Yaya
Parachute princess,
The movie is over,
Lay that dirt on me

Jump the dead, Yaya
Howl at the sun, Yaya
I see you changing,
Know you’re not the only one
Howl at the moon, Yaya,
Let it be done, Yaya
Ya, you’re not the only one
Running for the sun, Yaya
Running down the sun, Yaya.
Oh, you’re looking tall…
Quite a big fall.

Don’t let the ground scare you
Just a cinema mindfuck
For martyrdom dumdums
Wake up the sun, Yaya,
Suffering meanie,
The movie is over,
Lay that dirt on me

Jump the dead, Yaya
Howl at the sun, Yaya
I see you changing,
Know you’re not the only one
Howl at the moon, Yaya,
Let it be done, Yaya
I see you changing,
Know you’re not the only one
Howl at the moon, Yaya,
Howl at the sun, Yaya,
Ya, you’re not the only one,
Running for the sun, Yaya.

All we’re living hard
All our lives are dreams
Cool to Kumbaya
When you scream
Ah, but ground is good,
When it splits the body round and grounds you good
And its understood, its gonna be Love

Resurrection of,
Lala proves her love

Don’t let the ground scare ya,
Suffering papa
The movie is over…
