about

The Adventures of the Silver Spaceman Brooklyn, New York

"Sprung from Lou Barlow-like crinkly pop, the marauding melodies, two-or-more guitar dualing and shadowy stories move it into dark urban alley territory."

Track Name: Electric Earth
Bothered in thought
but the knot holds taught
the light flickers off
Into a pile of soot
Crooked wars
Crooked battles
Crooked horse
Crooked saddles

The Trick of the trip
is to jump than look
To feed the pursuit
get stuck then shook
crooked wars
crooked battles
crooked horse
crooked saddles

the bottle debunked
the babbling crook
the ship that sunk
sunk with the cook
crooked wars
crooked battles
crooked snakes
crooked ladders

The pig was a boar ‘till the bee went and stung it
the monkey was bored ‘till he shat and then flung it
Am I giving you more than the towel you wrung did?
Am I giving you more than the time that I sung it?
Is it worth to explore the wild child you hung with
Won’t matter no more what you walk to the store in
You’re a good kid. You’re a sharp tac
Gonna make it down down to the bottom and back

Try to solder the wire from the microphone cord
God save the lord let him lay on his back
The war was born before the battle begun
and when they shot the cannons sounded like love
the kerosene gleams the titans are coming so listen to the humming birds hum
earth breathes deep god awful funny so trade in all your money for love
Track Name: Expulsions
You take the wheel and I’ll drive faster
Until we lose control
It’s such a beautiful disaster
when we just let it go
I don’t know what comes after
and I don’t want to know

You laugh a lot you talk real scattered
you bore one shaky soul
I’d ask you all about what don’t matter
you kept me well and full
You’d raise your hand just like your father
but than you’d keep it cool

I can feel the traffic whizzing by me
than barely hit me sends things shifting
and I know my mom would miss me if I died
I believe in mothers kicking cancer for their children
and their husbands and their sisters brothers mothers and their dads
tell the necromancer we don’t need him ‘cause she beat it
in this topsy turvy world won’t be defeated not that girl
I can feel your big ole heart and I’m so lucky your alive
we’ve got each other and the spangled stars they let you keep your blood
Track Name: Weather King Part II
I don’t gotta but I do wanna lift my heavy heart up far away from here
The dreams I’ve had were dreams about dreaming
Now it’s time I dream of something real

And when I feel like I could be better I’ll sing like I’m the king of the weather

Hey Eddie Vedder, Mr. Van Halen it seems like rock n’ roll and really welcome here
Hey Marilyn Manson are ya Monroe Charles or is it just a big joke to fuck with us?

And If I did die and if you did die but we were brought right back to life
we’d realize that we’re alive and kicking
And when I feel like I could be better I’ll sing like I’m the king of the weather
Track Name: Silver & Alone
Home looking at all ten pictures of you
Alone wishing that I was alone with you
Please don’t make me wait any longer
I don’t know how much more I could do
I sure with that I could be stronger
and I could just let go of you
but the truth is I wouldn’t ever want to
‘cause I’m still in love with always will be still in love with you

Home singing these same ole lonesome blues
Home you’re probably humming a similar tune
please don’t make me wait any longer
don’t know how much more I could do
I sure wish that I could be stronger
and I could just let go of you
but the truth is I wouldn’t ever want to
‘cause I’m still in love with
always will be
still in love with you
Track Name: Breath of Fire
I just want to devour the world I wanna eat it all up
I just want to devour the world I wanna eat it all up
The dry dead sand from the dessert ground
I wanna eat it all up
Ceramic tiles from the bathroom floor
I wanna eat it all up
The three little piggies and the wolves that howl
The hard consonants and the soft vowels
The babies face and the beggars scowl
The filthy rags and the clean white towels
I wanna eat it all up
I wanna eat it all up
I wanna eat it all up
and then I’ll belch…
a breath of fire

I just want to devour the world I wanna eat it all up
I just want to devour the world I wanna eat it all up
The pale white moon in the dark black sky
The shaky voice of the man who died
the hearts that burn and the hearts that boil
the hearts that run on motor oil
the hearts that feel and the hearts that foil
the hearts that win every time they roll
I wanna eat em all up
I wanna eat em all up
and then I’ll belch…
a breath of fire
