TIGERS WITH BEAUTIFUL VOICES As I was walking down the main street On a Wednesday Watching people cook a watermelon stew The thought of food was a distraction A reminder, that there was something I forgot to do And as I crossed the bridge back home, I found a note pinned to my shack It had the pawprint of a tiger And the words “We’re coming back” They are not evil, it’s just something they have to do Tigers with beautiful voices are coming for you Singing songs, which have words you won’t remember Righting wrongs, now those days are gone for ever Come the day, yes you’ve tried to circumvent it All the way, but you know you can’t prevent it Maybe you think that you don’t serve a master What we do is to save all from disaster Soon you’ll learn, though you thought we’d all been slaughtered We’ll return – to restore the natural order As I was walking by the river, on a Friday Watching idly as the wind blew through the trees I turned my mind back to the Tigers, and as I stood there I’m sure I heard a voice upon the breeze And I as crossed the bridge back home, lit up by lanterns glowing bright I turned my mind back to the Tigers and that final, fatal night Did you think, that we kill things for no reason? It’s the brink of disaster’s final season Hear our cry, what you’ve done is no solution You can try – but you can’t stop evolution Tigers with beautiful voices are coming for you Next generation your children will be tigers too

Milkman 05:38
MILKMAN I was feeling sleepy, I had to go to bed I lay down on my pillow to rest my weary head I woke up in the morning, I dunno where I am But I open up my eyes and I see – The Milkman It’s The Milkman Red top, green top, gold top He’s coming for you I was in a panic, I had to get away I dunno what he wanted But it wasn’t safe to stay I walked around the dairy To find a place to hide But it didn’t really matter ‘cause he knew I was inside I leaned on a milk crate It fell down with a crash The Milkman was distracted So I had to make a dash He very nearly caught me But I had to keep on running You better hide away ‘Cause The Milkman’s coming It’s The Milkman Red top, green top, gold top He’s coming for you

RED QUEEN RISING I’m the Lady, or perhaps I’m a man It makes no difference When you’re in charge of a clan You wouldn’t like me When I’m feeling annoyed But you’ll obey me. ...or I’ll have you destroyed I’m the mistress of darkness The princess of pain I’d rip out your eyes And then your soul and your brain I’m the priestess of darkness The patron of screams The end of your sorrows Your hopes and your dreams I’m the Messiah – I hear the gods in my head I send my armies to leave the Heretics dead There’s nothing finer than to watch their heads roll If you defy me, then I’ll devour your soul And in my Garden of Delights (The heads are skewered onto poles) Such wondrous sounds (A few more rebels lost their souls) and wondrous sights I like to lie beneath the trees (Dead bodies swing from every bough) And feel my hair blow in the breeze (I think I’ll execute you NOW) If you betray me, then all my people shall see, As you’re beheaded, the fate of traitors to me And it won’t stop there – for your final release Your soul is eaten by my secret police

DREAMKEEPERS Another world has a reflection of you To keep you safe from danger You won't believe me but I tell you it's true The truth gets even stranger For there are beings in a sinister place Who plan a new invasion And just a handful of the Dreamkeeper race Can balance that equation And when the Nightmare comes they'll be the only ones With a way to shut the door And now the evil's come and they are on the run And they are hiding from the law Dreamkeepers are real Dreamkeepers have a magical power To aid them in their mission But it's forbidden by the law of the tower To use without permission The legends tell about a terrible day When nightmares came to plunder Now things are moving in an ominous way To tear the world asunder What do you get when your enemy is there for all to see But no-one will believe you? What do you get when the highest highs have all been compromised Don't let the world deceive you A lonely orphan in a difficult place The daughters of the ruler Unlikely heroes for the Dreamkeeper race The truth gets even cooler Lord Void is rising and Nabonidus too Is weak but growing stronger And if our heroes can't decide what to do Their world won't last much longer And when the Nightmare comes they'll be the only ones With a way to shut the door And now the Evil's come and they are on the run And they are hiding from the law Dreamkeepers are real

Overlord 06:54
OVERLORD This is the bit I like best, the bit where I slay all my foes It gives me a thrill from my head to the tip of my toes This is the bit I like best, the bit where they bow at my feet It just goes to show my dominion is nearly complete I’m evil, I’m evil, that’s all there is to say I’m evil, I’m evil, I very nearly always get my way I’m your Evil Overlord and you’ll do as I say Otherwise you’ll never live to see another day I’m your Evil Overlord and what I tell you goes Or I might cut off your head, or maybe just your nose This is the bit I like best, the bit where I give them the rope It shows all my people rebellion has not got a hope This is the bit I like least, the bit where I wake up at night The bit where I wonder if what I have done isn’t right... This is the bit I like best, the bit where I count all my gold It makes me feel warm when outside it is snowy and cold This is the bit I like best, the bit where I add a new tax And if you can’t pay you get jailed or even the axe This is the bit I like best, the bit where I pass a new law To give to the rich and to help me in robbing the poor

JAKE, GOD OF LIES (AND STUFF) Cabbages and oranges Give power to my ever-faithful minions, my faithful minions Confusion and illusion Aren’t strong enough to change my foes’ opinions Their fixed opinions Feathers, leaves and faith are all you need To make forbidden magic work – as Gods go, I’m a jerk If you dare, then take a care Since worshipping me brings you persecution, such persecution If you’re caught, the trial’s short And tends to end with public execution, grim execution They might kill My followers but some they’ll never recognise... I AM THE GOD OF LIES Long ago (as some will know) I tried to take control of all Creation Yeah, all Creation Now exiled I am reviled, my worshippers Risk death and condemnation Yeah, condemnation If you kill My followers, you’ll find Your nights are filled with screams I AM THE GOD OF DREAMS What you’ve done strikes me as fun So I’ll reward you in my usual manner, my charming manner I’ll change your ears, astound your peers A curse that’s not a curse it’s more a banner, a noble banner With your pranks you risk your life to worship me, I guess It’s kind of odd I AM THE TRICKSTER GOD

about

Here is my twelfth effort - Evil Songs for Evil People.

The studio underwent significant upgrades to add a 2" 24-track machine as the centrepiece. In addition, the Cheetah MS6 failed and so far has not been able to be resuscitated, the Korg Triton was replaced by a combination of a Hammond SK-1 and Alesis DM10 on drum duty. In addition, a Waldorf string machine was added to the mix, and as such the sound has changed somewhat..
On the downside, I ran out of leave at work and the mixing ended up somewhat more rushed than was perhaps sensible. Even so, I hope you like it.



Recorded using the Old Ways at The Lab, Cwmbran 2014-2015
