Stone 03:09
I dreamt I dropped a stone into a valley from a high place It fell like stone, it shrank like melting butter on a flame And as it fell it missed the sides of rock inevitably As if the sides were moving out as it grew smaller When I looked up tonight and saw the sky I felt the same sensation Did I feel small? - of course, but more than small Or less – as if my self was separated out and left behind My eyes moved up and light moved down And I left me like a stone falling upwards and away forever If you look out tonight and see the sky You’ll feel the same sensation Stone You’ll dream you dropped a stone into a valley from a high place It’ll fall like stone, it’ll shrink, melting butter And as it falls it’ll miss the sides of rock As if the sides are moving out away as it grows smaller And I’ll look out tonight and see the sky And feel the same sensation Stone

Blink and Go 01:39
The screen’s a scream of light Two-handed hunchback poised above the keys You peck and shake your naked need - Raw - and knowing in your gut you'll get no rest until the power-down Blink and go The glare makes eyeballs throb as if a punch had landed Bruised, your blood-rimmed pupils stare The screen's a scream of white An endless fascination curls a finger on the keys Dazed spasm clenching to a dot You'll get no rest until the power-down Go, blink, go Eyeballs throb as if a punch A scream of light The screen stares Blink

Fallen 03:49
My needle’s on empty, empty I’ve got nothing left inside, nothing inside Cruel oil in my heart sinks, heart sinks, heart sinks Wandering out looking for somewhere to hide Fallen again Again again again (again again again again) How the hell am I fooling anyone real I can’t even tie myself, tie myself down, down, tie myself I managed to drown in so many oceans, so many oceans, so many oceans So many oceans my body can’t be (found) Fallen again Again again again (again again again again again) So many oceans To swim drown and done, swim drown and done, swim, drown, and done Pulling me down Sliding along to empty How the hell can I be Fallen again Fallen

I don’t work one gig, it’s four or five Zero hours keep the show alive No time for thinking, no time to play Long-term relationships get in the way Dodos inside me are starting to weep It’s been days since I got some sleep Drinking Red Bull in a Starbucks cup If I fall down I won’t get up I won’t get up I don’t eat solids, I gave that up I get my fuel from my Starbucks cup Dodos inside me, I’m ready to weep I keep repeating cos I get no sleep People are talking, they sound like birds I feel their noise but I hear no words I sit in car parks inside a van And people tell me I’m a, a lucky man O lucky man And people tell me lucky man I don’t work one gig, it’s four or five Zero hours keep the show alive No time for thinking, no time to play Long-term relationships get in the way People are talking, they sound like birds I feel their noises but I hear no words I sit in car parks inside a van And people tell me lucky man lucky man

Wind him up again so he goes round One more in the fairground Lobbing fake bombs make a big sound, go bang Round one goes to the head clown Round two back comes Sir Letdown Forensic use of a put-down, applaud Pirouette and pirouette and pirouette don’t stop The dancer moves in his circle Hesitant steps back to central Won’t go too far left in case he falls down To damp down fervour use burdock Performance permission from Murdoch Hold the elite in a lovelock, call Blair They’ll wind him up again so he goes round One more fake in the fairground Lobbing dead words to a dead sound - you’re not there You're not there You're not Pirouette and pirouette and pirouette don’t stop Don't stop! (round and round and round) Can you tell which direction you’re facing? - lobbing dead words

Zombies 03:00
Don’t get infected - keep scratches clean Watch out for walkers - above all don’t be seen Close all the windows - lock every door Don’t make a sound - it’s what the neighbours listen for Don’t take a chance - when zombies dance You find a car - I’ll find the key Hope the former driver don’t come chasing after me Head for the supermarket, get supplied Check every aisle first in case somebody died Don’t take a chance - when zombies dance If you get cornered - don’t hang around Every other human is a ticket underground If one seems infected - you mustn’t stay Make a polite excuse then run run run run run away No don’t take a chance - when zombies dance No second glance Don’t take that chance When zombies dance

Love 03:09
Family background family tie Education privatised Heirloom fully realised Investment set to grow Public schoolboy private deal Oxbridge college damn fine meal This is how the right sort feel about the status quo I got love inside my heart But I don't love you We believe in freedom We believe in strength We believe in money and buying out the bank Country’s good is good for me It’s like the 19th century This is your democracy Bless you all and thanks Love inside my heart But I don't love you The way things are is just sublime This and this and this are mine I’ve got money I’ve got time to take a little room We don’t like to see you drown Wealth will someday trickle down When you’re dead and underground And piss into your tomb Love Yeah I got love inside my heart But I don't love you

about

The second release from Endless Idiot has improved production values but keeps the eclectic vision and the 100% DIY approach. There's a waltz, a pop song, a banger, some oddities, some anger, LOVE that isn't, one instrumental, and bastard versions of two songs originally written for a rhythm and blues band.
