about

Frogbelly and Symphony Brooklyn, New York

the EYE - a theatrical asteroid flying by the watchers and listeners.
A bombastic flying piece of rock projecting on a screen near you.
Lyrical excryations adjure the unafraid and the unadorned.
Tailoring surrealist tightropes,
Extensive forms merge with roots in traditional instrument playing.
Watch the end of the hibernation and resolve.

Track Name: Amour Fou
near the end you saw a rose
and near the end you saw a thorn
together rose and thorn, together
evening and morning light commingling

now you sit in the garden
not doing a thing
just sit in the garden
smiling
you feel the confusion
the ache of hangover
yet you take the wine again
that's handed to you

you've broken shapes against the wall
you've broken many shapes and watched them, fall
you stir their colours together
you stir their colours into the mud

let the lover be disgraceful
let the lover be crazy
let the lover be absentminded
someone sober will worry about things going badly
let the lover be
Track Name: Paying the Price
where have you been
the blood-eyed mokey's made me quiver
and prayers will come out
the mind is beading while doors are moving through the wall
oh no!
the wide-set bulb eyes
they swell and swell
why are they beading every time
why are they bleeding on the man lying down
touch my skin

step out the cross vault
dance with the spiders
see how the crows fly northward
and within the moment of a winking of your eyelid
you are emerging
dance with the spiders
walk to the bellfry on the hill
chime with the wind and stroke your memento within

I saw a fly with a machine in its brain
-buzzing the circles of a spiraling maze
I ditched the compound cause I didn't fit in
-you tilt the flagstaff with a shivering hand

step out the cross vault
dance with the spiders
see how the crows fly northward
and within the moment of a winking of your eyelid
you are emerging
dance with the spiders
look how the crows fly northward
chime with the wind and walk upon a hill
and hit the bell
ding
ding

mother,
where have you been
Track Name: Lonely Seabird
our interpretation of the lyrics may not be exact. we studied the original recording and transcribed the lyrics to the best of our ability.
Track Name: Sugar Castles
the committee has met
the complaint was made of behaviour rules
the indirect object refers to the person addressed by you
an unexpected pinch bit bloated bliss of shady memories
of green and red and blue

now cascading images are casting slurs on our heads

the propositions cause convictions handy dabbing off the specks
the role of substitution is riding on its rail in either way
possessing self-indulgence cheating on the mind
then you recall
suburban ceiling covers hungry tube
compelling you to fall

now cascading images are casting slurs on our heads
and while we blunder
we're setting stone for our

sugar castles

immaculate elaborations shooting off the word
now cascading images are casting slurs on our heads
and still we tumble
we're passing off into our

sugar castles
Track Name: Kookaburra
and as you're calling out the mole
oh dear
give in to the lizards creeping out their lairs
you wiped our treasures off the board
your imaginary fraud will keep you drudging
until you spin

the hints get lost there in between
then bounce back bury in this heart
darkness blossoms in the spleen
where did it start
I can't look into your eyes
the robot tick has seized the call
you take you crush you criticize
where did it fall

the more days you are waiting
the less last breathings you will hear
so put your face on that is made of steel
you punch your fingers through the wall
you suppress your thoughts no more
you feel the mad comes out
you feel yourself

I can't feel you over there
I crawled out of another home
you have shaken with that stare
how did you know
crack open wide and pull me down
come panther will you take the feed
it won't get hotter lying round
we can be free

...

I can't feel you over there
i crawled out of another home
you have shaken with that stare
how did you know
crack open wide and pull me down
come panther will you take the feed
it won't get hotter lying round
we can be free

i can't look into your eyes
the robot tick has seized the call
you take you crush you criticize
where did it fall
