about

This album is recorded and released one track a month to allow each song to be honed to imperfection.

"A lovely mass of chiming chords, deadpan wordplay and a wispy psychedelic otherness." - Now Then Magazine

"Impressive debut" - The Big Issue

"Het is echter niet eens zozeer de tekst als wel de muziek die ons ervan overtuigd heeft dat ook Nederland in de ban van Granfalloon moet geraken." - Indebanvan (NL)

"Lomax is one of those artists that will persistently and consistently produce music of excellent quality without compromising for the benefit of mass appeal. This is art (without wanting to sound pretentious) and art sounds good in 2017." - Listen With Monger

Track Name: Glamour
Tell me what your belief is worth
I'll give you something worth believing
Don't bother black magic, it won't bother you
Spend no time on the demons appearing in every mirror you see

Still you won't see through the glamour
No you won't see past the glamour

Every thought you've ever thunk
Was put in that head by me
The signing of your death sentence
The writing of your obituary

Still you won't see through the glamour
No you won't see past the glamour
Track Name: Windmills
Sitting ducks all in a row
You never realised your potential
You were purely mediocre til the end
Realise your potential
Or you'll be purely mediocre til the end

If they found a way of bottling superpowers
You would still drink dark rum instead
You would still take the rum instead

Don Quixote told me
As he rode with haste
That we've all got windmills to chase
Keep your mind on the mission Sonny Jim
Order me another large gin while you're at it
Don't forget to charge it to Cervantes

Even Icarus got off the ground
Well you just fell off your barstool
And sat there arguing whose round it was
Even Icarus got off the ground

Don Quixote told me
As he rode with haste
That we've all got windmills to chase
Keep your mind on the mission Sonny Jim
Order me another large gin while you're at it
Don't forget to charge it to Cervantes

I wanted dreams
But they're only windmills
Track Name: Wag
Another link in the chain
Looks me in the eye and tells me
I'm going to have to turn my back
On you

Another pane in the glass
Looks right through my eyes
I swear I'll always see your face
Cos you've got two

I always used to say
At the end of the day
We're all somebody's dog

You made this waste
You carved this face
But this tail don't Wag for you no more
This tail don't Wag for you no more
My tail don't Wag for you no more

Another pain in the arse
Wants to stab me in the back
By crawling up and down my spine
Up my spine

If every link the chain
Would only turn around
And retreat to the link behind
It would all be fine

I always used to say
At the end of the day
We're all somebody's dog

You made this waste
You carved this face
But this tail don't Wag for you no more
This tail don't Wag for you no more
My tail don't Wag for you no more

You always used to say
At the end of the day
We're all somebody's dog

You made this waste
You carved this face
But this tail don't Wag for you no more
This tail don't Wag for you no more
My tail don't Wag for you no more
Track Name: Look Who's Sorry Now
I was young and I thought I was in love
Now those big boys in the suits are your friends down the pub
Brothers grow apart as they grow up
Seems the dreams that we once shared don't seem to be enough

Every tale we ever told
Every friend we ever sold
For thirty pieces on the head
It felt much more like golden chances, dances, opportunities
You know how we hate apologies
That's how much this means to me
Cos look who's sorry now

I've been a bad boy gone astray and been misled
Turns out the times I thought we'd spent, spent us instead

Every tale we ever told
Every friend we ever sold
For thirty pieces on the head
It felt much more like golden chances, dances, opportunities
You know how we hate apologies
That's how much this means to me
Cos look who's sorry now
Track Name: Hotel X
You talk so often
Of going to the dogs
Well the dogs are here
You're scared that you might stand this fear
In Hotel X
The ups and downs
They go and come
Below the ground
A candle burns
Just one short prayer
And you are back on your feet again

CHORUS
All the wine and the piss and the dreams and the rain
All run down the same drains
All the gambles and chances and stories and flutters
Run down those same gutters
Let them all run to the sea
So the sun will soak them all up and shower them down again
The sun will soak them all up and shower them down
Again and again and again

You walk for miles and miles
From London to St. Ides
You sleep in spikes
Drink and think
But never touch the sides
From Wapping to Whitechapel Town
We are past redemption now
The Winters here would let you freeze
O take me to Alsatia
O please

CHORUS
All the wine and the piss and the dreams and the rain
All run down the same drains
All the gambles and chances and stories and flutters
Run down those same gutters
Let them all run to the sea
So the sun will soak them all up and shower them down again
The sun will soak them all up and shower them down
Again and again and again

Belisha beacons
Unafraid of all they've seen today
Do you believe in the way that you feel?
You're so insincere
I still love you babe
Though it's not a thing you want to hear
Won't keep you warm when you are cold
Won't keep you safe from harm

In Hotel X
Nothing ever changes but your luck
Track Name: Wellness
Dose
Dose me up
Like a rabbit in a stew
There's an unknown recommended daily allowance
For now I'll just take five
You could slice me open
If that's what you decide
The only damn wish
I ever did have
Was to spell your name
With my insides

If this is the last thing I'll ever hear
Nail my palms to the table and wait for the night
If this is the last song that I'll ever write
I'll slip down to Hell with a smile

As tissue and muscle
Jostle and tussle
With headaches for space
My body shakes
Medication
Medication's what you need
I've got a cough
Like a snare drum
And everybody wants one

If this is the last thing I'll ever hear
Nail my palms to the table and wait for the night
If this is the last song that I'll ever write
I'll slip down to Hell with a smile
