about

This is my 11th effort, recorded in 2013-2014. The closing track just grew and grew so the album ended up with just five tracks so that it might stand a chance at fitting on a 12" vinyl pressing if I eventually do that.

Recorded using the Old Ways at The Lab, Cwmbran 2013-2014
Mixed 21-24 Oct. 2014
Mastering by Alex Balzama at Swift Solutions, London, Feb 2015.

Greetings go out to Keaton, Ren, Wuff and Chaosmage, Merlin and co.
Thanks go out to the Rosegarden team, to all at RMGI, ATR, MRL and HomeRecording for keeping the analogue dream alive.

Cover by Keetah at Spacecat Studios: spacecat-studios.com

Logo by Luke Turner. Recorded on SM911 and ATR Mastering tape
Mixed to ATR Mastering tape.

Track Name: The Man Who Should Be King
The Man Who Should Be King

Heads bow in line, peaceful sunshine,
Heads bow in tune, they'll be mine soon

The kingdom of Exemplar is a terrible place
Its customs are archaic and its laws a disgrace
The one thing he can't handle if it's said to his face
Is that the King is quickly running out of time and space

And I'm the man who should be king
Think of the golden age I'll bring
And I shall turn things upside-down
When I have seized the kingdom's crown

Heads fall in time, high treason crime
Heads fall in tune, he'll be mine soon

And I'm the man who should be King, another golden age I'll bring
And I shall make this kingdom sound, when I have claimed the golden round

When I am king, I'm going to add protections to the law
So no-one can be killed without a trial any more
'cause that's not right.

And I'm the man who should be king
And hear the bells of judgement ring
And I shall make this kingdom sound
When I have claimed the golden round

Skulls fall in time, high treason crime
Skulls fall in tune, the throne...
The throne will be mine soon
I'm the man who should be king
Think of the golden age I'll bring
And I shall make this kingdom sound
When I have claimed the golden round

The kingdom of Exemplar was a terrible place
Its customs were archaic and its laws a disgrace
The thing he couldn't handle when I showed him my face
Was that I'd come to kill the King and now I've taken his place
Track Name: Panther Factory
PANTHER FACTORY

The future balanced on a knife
We take sheet steel and give it life
Atomic heart and quantum mind
A robot of the feline kind
In the panther factory

Unit 3A comes online
The robot army will be mine
Robots of my own design
Why have one life instead nine?

The future balanced on a knife
We take sheet steel and give it life
Atomic heart and quantum mind
A robot of the feline kind
Track Name: I'm Daryil
I'm Daryil

Come child, you've turned twenty-three
Now you're a part of my dynasty
Come young one, you've grown all your wings
Now we must talk of many things

I'm Daryil, and I have the power
I'll be there for you in your darkest hour
I am so much, much more than a man,
The great, immortal head of my clan
Don't be afraid, I'm not some evil madman

My law is just and ought to make sense
You only kill in self-defence
And if you ever eat someone's soul
I'll stuff your corpse down a 6ft hole

I'm Daryil, and I have the power
I'll bring you comfort in your darkest hour
I am so much, much more than you know
My giant form is now just for show
But don't be scared, I'm not some evil psycho

Don't you see? Don't you see?
You're the youngest face in my family

And I know everything you've done, and I know everywhere you've been
And I know everyone you've met, and I know everything you've seen
And I know everything you love, and I know everything you hate
And I know when you've played it false
And I know when you've played it straight, I've seen your soul

I'm Daryil, and I have the power
I'll bring you comfort in your darkest hour
I am so much, much more than a man
The great, immortal head of my clan
Don't be afraid, I'm not some evil madman

Come child, hearken to me
I want what's best for my family
Our clan has status, power and such
I do not ask for very much

I'm Daryil, and I have the power
My own ascension was my finest hour
I guess a tri-wing is kind of odd
Fifty foot tall and almost a god
But don't be scared, I'm not some reckless hotrod

Don't you see? Don't you see?
You're the youngest face in my family
Track Name: A Hundred Years
A Hundred Years (or, the SAIA song)

First Impression - Born with wings

The world outside is vicious, the world outside is cold
You'd better listen, or you'll die before you're old
There's much to teach you, there's much to learn
You need the basics or you'll end up ashes in a funeral urn

Give us a hundred years or so, we'll teach you all you need to know
Give us a hundred years or more, it's safer when you know the score

Your parents never told you, they kept you in the dark
They felt that you'd be safer if you lacked that vital spark
Well, what you know can hurt you, if you are told too young
A child's careless words can get the whole lot of you taken out and hung

Second Impression - Running for your life

Third impression - The Academy

Our school is here to help you, we'll teach you what we know
We'll keep you well-protected 'till it's safe for you to go
The course is pretty weighty, it's going to take a while
And we'll be here to help you when you go through the traditional denial

Fourth impression - The Tour

Roll up, roll up, kid, it's time to have fun,
Now you're enrolled here the lesson's begun
There's plenty to do here, there's plenty to see, all this and more in our academy

We'll teach you to pose as a regular man, it's safest to do this whenever you can
There's people are there who would cut off your head
“The only good demon is one that is dead!”

Step right up! This way to the library . Step right up! This way to the pool
Step right up! This way to the fencing room.
Step right up! We'll have a friendly duel

We'll teach you to hide and we'll teach you fight
You won't need to sleep, you can party all night
There's plenty to do here, there's plenty to see
All this and more in our academy

We'll teach you to heal and we'll teach you kill
To make people better, or make them feel ill
We'll teach you to do good, and how to do bad
To make people happy or make people sad

Step right up! This way to the torture room. Step right up! This way to the gym
Step right up! This way to the science lab
Step right up! Indulge your every whim

Now we can be deadly, regardless of age, we easily fly into a violent rage
We'll teach you to keep your emotions in check
To save you from getting an axe in the neck

And now we've completed our whistle-stop tour
Just ask the headmistress and she'll tell you more
And if you've glazed over, and don't understand,
There's Bela Santiago's Exploding Head Band!

Fifth impression - Bela Santiago's Exploding Head Band

Sixth impression - Give Us A Hundred Years Or So

The world outside is vicious, the world outside is cruel
But we can teach you how to live and how to keep your cool
We hope you'll join us, we'll teach you what you are
With some encouragement, we're certain that you'll end up going far

Give us a hundred years or so, we'll teach you all you need to know
Give us a hundred years or more, it's safer when you know the score
