Glamour 03:39
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

Windmills 04:39
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

Wag 03:50
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

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

Bleary 04:53
Elizabeth enters the room See Phillip drowning his sorrows They embrace, she takes one look at his face And she knows he's feeling hollow Bleary eyed dreams Of leading revolutions Will all fall flat come the morning This we know yet we still go on Drinking and dreaming Let's stay bleary eyed forever Charlie lies with a princess in bed Takes a shot to the arm it shoots to his head Charlie's slipping away as Princess she turns to say: "To me Charlie, you won't ever be dead." Bleary eyed dreams Of leading revolutions Will all fall flat come the morning This we know yet we still go on Drinking and dreaming Let's stay bleary eyed forever Elizabeth enters the room See Phillip drowning his sorrows

Hotel X 06:20
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

Wellness 04:37
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

about

Each song 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
