Comedians 03:49
Them comediums they don't know their shit better than me but there's one thing they can do Them comedians they don't make you laugh harder than me but there's one thing they can do They take it outside To the crowd Out of the ballrooms Into the light Them cumediums they don't make you cum harder than me Them comedians They don't think you're hot. /voices mashed up together/ You're used to remember You used to remember how To take it outside To the crowd Out of the ballrooms Into the light ^It's how you move how you move when you move me round I guess^

^/birds-fly sound at the end of intro/^ ^^It's so hard to be Live and then set free They take away your wings And say fly above. I'm not sure what I can't take So my heart won't break^^ Spilling blood on thee And my gentlemen in lingerie^^ ^/birds-fly sound before the second verse/^ ^^You, do you really think you can taste All these nuclear takes just test one more smile And then take some more. It's a cool scene for an antichrist as he can never turn his eyes from the lovely toothpaste girl And the boy next door^^ ^/birds-fly sound before the chorus/^ ^^Your eyes, they will bury me Looks like now I'm the enemy So here I stand Stuttering Breaking out Malfunctioning.^^ ^/birds-fly sound in the outro/^

a) Knights b) Rebellion Trap c) Angels ^Knights are dead on the way to the grail^ An ominous preface to a pointless tale No blues in the shadows No swing in the gallows Not through the words still Swear as fear sets in With every shiver of a shin ^^/entering basso lamento four step chromatic descent/^^ Heart was a black box recovered from a crush It took them three years to decipher what went on inside they said I was struggling I was struggling I was struggling so hard Made them wonder how I kept my mind How did he know it was gonna be alright Caught up in this rebellion trap for so long But it can wait Trying to get to your happy camp for so long But it can take In the woods in the gutter there it lay Not to be found again until God sent his angels to roam the lands But the angels were struggling They were struggling so hard He made them look for something so fard to find Don't they know it's gonna be alright Don't they know, don't they know ^^^that you only learn how to save love when you lose it alltogether You learn how to spell love Don't you lose it Keep it together^^^

Hold out your heart It's not broken inside hold your hand It's not spoken for She came into my life so slow She held out my hand Like it was something to hold on before all comes to nothing She came into my life so slow Now I can't let go I must give in I can't let go ^Sooner or later Love's gonna get you Sooner or later Sooner or later Love is gone Somehow I knew It was gone^ Who do you think you are?

The Shunt 04:04
Depression sneaks up on you like a resurrection to the damned ^When you least expect it you're elected^ Your star's a black hole Depression You will live again. I have found a way to make my ends meet Followed myself back into that shunt. Come back baby Come back baby I wanna kiss the cross I wanna ^^kiss his open sores^^ I wanna praise the Lord I wanna praise him on the source I wanna praise the Lord my only saviour Jesus Christ. ^^^/entering instrumental outro/^^^

^All the leaves are brown and the sky is gray California dreaming on such a winter's day^ All the way and back Just to see my baby dressed in black. ^All the leaves are brown and the sky is blue California dreaming such a way from you^ All the way and back Just to see my baby dressed in black. ^^They say I was born it was a fantastic accident I fell on the floor My mother right next to me The doctor was alarmed It was the middle of the night When he came up I was already.^^ All the leaves are brown and the sky is gray California dreaming on such a winter's day^ All the way. ^^^It won't do any good Won't any good Won't do any good to my one chrome song.^^^

Endless 05:15
^/drumbeat loop/^ ^^/jewsharp drone/^^ ^^^/guitar lead/^^^ It’s not the clothes you’re wearing Not the posts you’re sharing Not the words you’re shouting Not the songs you’re writing Nothing in the way you Listen to or play it Not about the fighting It’s all about the love that you are giving You’ve been given You are given You’re forgiven. Endless days Sleepless nights Feeling Shame Feeling Right. ^^^^second time around first verse sang in hopeful, forgiving, harmonious manner^^^^ —————————————— ^The beat is reproduced to resemble the one played by Mladi Vlado on Tom Violence’s ‘Zero Hour’ (MyRoomRecords, 1996) or Milan Bukejlović on Petrol’s 'Sve jedno je’ (Odličan hrčak, 2007) ^^Open Source BBC Sound Effects (http://bbcsfx.acropolis.org.uk/) ^^^Guitar part similar to Tom Violence’s ‘Zero Hour’ (MyRoomRecords, 1996) ^^^^With respect to the ‘Finale’ of the Ninth Simphony by Ludwig Van Beethoven and the switch from the dread of baroque chromatic ostinato to ‘Ode to Joy’ /credits + notes/ Some old song parts here. But everything else anew. Half-of-us-here-love-Jesus-kinda-thing. Noise guitars by Neven and LMB. Drums played and looped by Brane. Nara on bass, Brane on percussion.

The sole intention of this music album was to fathom out the origins of what we consider and have always perceived to be - 'our music'.

Process of inventing and arranging a musical piece is one of avoiding obvious and profane repetition of common places in music history. Author is seldom content when confronted with exploitation of chewed&spat-out patterns and therefore, in this time, this ancient practice of referencing and reflecting in order to explore and revel in the revelations falls short to avoidance and reduction as the sole goal of not having to cope with one’s insecurity and scrutiny that deludes to lure ‘poor inapt fools’ into death of failure on the way to the grail of ‘originality’.

Conversely, what was attempted here is to stop at nothing, being that the obvious reference, an overused hint or common fact, and emphasize it, reflect it against our own and set out to discover cached implications, hopefully attributing new explanations until the lame old voyage becomes peregrination, thus reinventing the process in its own wake and, as previously stated, ‘revel in the revelations’. Without further post-pseudo-sade-ado, examples note down as follows...
