Feel the strings pinned to every word Pulling thoughts through Choose your news source carefully As carefully as it chooses you Shrink the language Shrink the conversation Confirmation bias is a bias of confirmation that Shrink the language Shrink the conversation Confirmation bias is a bias of confirmation that The end is coming The end is coming The end is coming for you Give us this fear with our daily bread Pull those thoughts through Facts distract from the narrative The narrative that’s distracting you (harmony on AGt3) Shrink the language Shrink the conversation Confirmation bias is a bias of confirmation Keep us from following the money To those party donors who own The papers that we read The end is coming The end is coming The end is coming for you

You can see the place it used to stand There goes a broken man There goes a broken man But when there's nothing left to lose Every ego bruised Keeps the world amused I know that's a hefty weight to share with you An unappealing mess of feeling But oh You could have the fix I need You can see the place it used to land Falls like a broken branch Upon your broken ground Forgive and forget Not every pound of flesh comes To regret I know that's a hefty weight to share with you An unappealing mess of feeling But oh You could have the fix I need I ask too much of you But branches break and people too I hope in time With string and glue And glue and string We'll mend these broken things I know that's a hefty weight to share with you An unappealing mess of feeling But oh You could have the fix I need

Lysistrata 04:14
LYRICS ====== I accede I will sheath my sword O break my shield upon the floor Swear your oath you will end this war That we may lie Nevermore These burdens are not small This timber it must fall Desire is not my sole domain We are Partners or nothing We work together or we idle alone We live together or we die alone Air your truth, shall I not speak? This conversation must not cease Face to face or Side by side We find our strength when unified This fire rages tall In your exalted hall Desire is not my sole domain We are Partners or nothing We work together or we idle alone We live together or we die alone

Lover of mine You bring me gifts Cut from the boudoir of Princess Eugenie Clipped from the tomb of Queen Nephertiti So thoughtful that lover of mine O darling of mine You send me presents Flowers from the dirt of Washington's grave A token of loyalty; honest and brave That sweet thoughtful husband of mine They light fires in my mind For the stories they pay me to write Objects of love form the basis For the money that we need to survive O lover of mine I sent you trinkets Pieces of flannel from the market in Stretford Scraps of silk from barmaids of Salford O gullible lover of mine O darling of mine Would you believe that These flowers aren't really from Washington's grave I picked them down by the canal in the rain Sweet gullible darling of mine But it light fires in your mind Which in turn earns our means to survive These objects of love form the basis For those wonderful stories you write It Light fires in the mind All these whatnots and trifles and baubles and lies Objects of love form the basis For the things we both need to survive

How maddening it is, How oddening this evening is becomening? How sweet it is to feel From brain to belly to balls How sweet it is to feel? And even in my darkest jokes Beauty can be found At the Gallows the humour turns into truth Beauty can be found Keep laughing - keep laughing out loud Shake old penny copper rust down From your houses of glum Turn it into falling joy Offense is for the birds They can sit on it if they please Offense/a fence is for the birds And even in my darkest jokes Beauty can be found At the Gallows the humour turns into truth Beauty can be found Keep laughing - keep laughing out loud Don't diminish This precious intensity With your words Rattle the bones of misery And keep laughing Keep laughing out loud

The Elephant 02:55
You can't eat the elephant whole You have to carve it up or else you will choke You can't drink the lake in one go You have to sip it down or else you will drown You can't eat the elephant whole You have to carve it up or else you will choke You can't shift the pyramid whole You shift it brick by brick lest you make yourself sick I'm choking - pat me on the back I'm choking - pat me on the back And carve the elephant up You can't eat the elephant whole You have to carve it up or else you will choke You can't drink the lake in one go You have to sip it down or else you will drown Man kann sich nicht jeden Schuh anziehen Wer über was Wasser geht, der muss Barfuß gehn You can't shift the pyramid whole You shift it brick by brick lest you make yourself... sick You can't eat the elephant whole You have to carve it up or else you will choke You can't drink the lake in one go You have to sip it down or else you will drown

EGO 04:21
Like a dog like a dog Like a dog on the corner Barking barking barking Barking at its own echo Barking at the echo of an echo of an echo in some endless feedback loop A million screaming voices of failure Ego makes you stupid Ego makes you mad Ego makes you foolish Ego Get out of your own way Giants giants giants Sleep beneath the stars in the night sky Fighting fighting fighting Fighting with the stars in the night sky They only name stars after you when you're in the ground Ego makes you stupid Ego makes you mad Ego makes you foolish Ego Get out of your own way

I got swallowed whole by a hurricane It picked up my house Right off the ground And tossed it around All over town I got swallowed whole I fell into the cracks the day the earth shook A monumental quake Caused my ground to ache Caused my ground to shake Caused my ground to break And I fell right in I've been laid low by a force of nature Brought down by a force of nature Been swallowed whole by a force of nature Hell I fell in love with a force of nature Hell I fell right in As I sank below from ice to fire The thrill of terror cried Something stirred inside Threw it open wide Somehow I survived As I sank below I've been laid low by a force of nature Brought down by a force of nature Been swallowed whole by a force of nature Hell I fell in love with a force of nature Hell I fell right in

Pink on the board Sacrifice What the ritual is for It’s good for the spirit O this dirt is good for the soul Touch your head and touch your toes If you don’t want to go in one of those One of those Purr like a cat And it’s hard to know Yes it’s hard to know that If you’re happy Or if you’re healing your bones Touch your head and touch your toes If you don’t want to go in one of those One of those A little bit of dirt is good for the spirit A little bit of dirt is good for the soul Touch your head and touch your toes If you don’t want to go in one of those One of those

Hold the gun to my head And tell me I'm happy Tell me that this is the thing that I've longed for for so long - so long Blood is rising in my temples A heart that is pounding is a heart that wants and desires - so long For a card that is marked from the moment it's dealt From the moment it lit you knew it would burn to the end Give me happiness, give me death I’ll take whatever you have left Give me a happy death - I’ll take a happy death Heal all my scars and pardon my crimes All deeds undone, the hours of fun forgotten - so long For a card that is marked from the moment it's dealt From the moment it lit you knew it would burn to the end Give me happiness, give me death I’ll take whatever you have left Give me a happy death - I’ll take a happy death Give me a happy death I'll take a happy a death Make mine a happy death

about

The second album proper from Granfalloon.

Granfalloon, is the musical project of Manchester based artist and producer Richard Lomax. Lomax makes a hybrid of lo-fi folk, experimental music, and electronica - weaving oddball elements, such as Omnichords, acoustic guitars, and vintage drum loops, into dreamy songs and cinematic soundscapes. Granfalloon's second album entitled RGB (or Red Green Blue) is out this September on Spotify, Apple Music, and 12" vinyl. The album was recorded in Manchester between John Ellis' Limefield Studio, WR Audio, and their own studio The Dogan. They worked with producer Andrew Glassford (One Little Atlas), and Australian electronic artist/producer Jack Prest (Jonti/Sampa The Great), as well as Lomax producing a lot of the album himself.
