about

The second album proper from Granfalloon.

Granfalloon, is the is the musical project of Manchester based artist and producer Richard Lomax. Lomax, who is now proudly backed by a group of musicians from the EU, makes a hybrid of lo-fi folk, experimental music, and electronica - weaving oddball elements, such as Omnichords and vintage drum machines, into dreamy 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.

Track Name: Year of the Rooster
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
Track Name: Broken Things
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
Track Name: Lysistrata
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
Track Name: Objects of Love
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
Track Name: Laughing Out Loud
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
Track Name: The Elephant
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
Track Name: EGO
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
Track Name: Force of Nature
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
Track Name: Ambulance (Bert mix)
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
Track Name: A Happy Death
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
