about

King Everything wrote the songs, sang, and played a little guitar. This was done back in May 2015. The songs sat on the cloud, forgotten until January 2016. At that time, Tea Sky Blue took those rough tracks and, in about a week, breathed life into them.

credits

released January 21, 2016

King Everything wrote all songs, sang all lead vocals and most back-up vocals as well as playing most of the acoustic guitar.

Tea Sky Blue played all other guitars, bass, harmonica, synth, backing vocals and utilised various pots, pans and found objects in the absence of an available drum kit. All additional instruments were recorded using cables and microphones scavenged from old video games.

The lyrics for "Just an Ordinary Man" are from a Donald Barthelme story called "How I Write My Songs"

The artwork is an alternate version of the illustration 'Oni Gent' from the 'Sad Truths' series by illustrator Carrion House.

Track Name: Composure
Ordinarily I wouldn’t want to lose my mind
I would definitely try to stay in line
I would fight back the tears
for a couple of years
I would certainly do all I could to shine
hold my head up high and stand up straight and tall
fight the urge to laugh or even smile at all
in an emergency
I’d always do th’ right thing
and calmly help frazzled when they fall
Ordinarily I wouldn’t want to scream and shout
Ordinarily I wouldn’t want to freak right out
but I’ve been quiet so long
would it really be wrong
to jump up out of my seat and dance about
Ordinarily I wouldn’t want to lose my mind
I would definitely try to stay in line
Track Name: To Have Back The Love We Knew
we know that your coming home
represents a sort of loss for you
so while you’re sad
understand we’re glad
to have back the love we knew
Everyday when the marginal band plays
The tedious horns blow, you’ll be you
I’ll be me and they’ll be them and
we’ll all know that you’ll be you
we know that your coming home
represents a sort of loss for you
so while you’re sad
understand we’re glad
to have back the love we knew
Everyday when the marginal band plays
we’ll all know that you’ll be you
Track Name: Just an Ordinary Man
Make it burn
and I’ll fake fine
Wake his bird
he’ll be forty-nine
I’m just an ordinary man
Just an ordinary man man man
Ain’t nothin’ but a man man man
I’m a grizzly man man man man
i’ll be you if you want me to
be you i’ll be what you want me
to be if you want me to be
you i’ll be what you want me to
be… just an ordinary man
Just an ordinary man man man
I’m a hello-goodbye man
I’m a ramblin’-gamblin’ man man man man
Make it last
How about tonight?
Make it first
an oversight
I’m just an ordinary man
Just an ordinary man man man
I’m a man’s man man man man man
I’m a woman’s man man man man
I’m an upstairs-downstairs man
I’m a today-and-tomorrow man
I’m a Freeway man man man man
Just an ordinary man man man
Track Name: Bopster’s Irremovable Locobot
Gather round now, friends
We should plot our revenge
Try to pick a spot
to off the locobot
Bopster’s got the goods
hidden in the woods
just around the hill
The locobot stands still
Track Name: Dream
Dream
During the night
During the day
In every way
Things
Begin with dreams
Begin with thoughts
Whatever may
Ignore all the logical, laid-out goals and plans
Ignore the common-sense, realistic man
Dream
When you are young
When you are old
And in between
Things
Begin with dreams
Begin with thoughts
Yeah, everything
Ignore all the logical, laid-out goals and plans
Ignore the common-sense, realistic man
Dream
While you’re asleep
And don’t wake up
No, don’t wake up
Keep
Your thoughts and dreams
Just out of reach
And run amok
Ignore all the logical, laid-out goals and plans
Ignore the common-sense, realistic man
Ignore all the logical, laid-out goals and plans
Ignore the common-sense, realistic man
Track Name: Unskilled Students
I’ve been thinkin’ ‘bout the mysteries of life again
How I can hold you in my hand, my hands so small
Revolution can come when you least expect it
But when you most expect it, it still can come
Built by unskilled
students without a plan
Unskilled by any measure known to man
Dinosaurs died before any cannonballs would fly
And yet they still managed to die
Crazier things have come before and more are still to come
Someday our artifacts will lie (when they wonder why)
Built by unskilled
students without a plan
Unskilled by any measure known to man...
Built by unskilled
students without a plan
Unskilled by any measure known to man
Track Name: Coffee Mug Wine
You better not be kidding
I’m not a hard man to fool
I take the words I hear as true
Regardless of what words I’m given
On the landscape
of hopeless heartbreak
The coffee mug wine is mine
it’s barely open
i’m very swollen
i’m fairly certain it’s mine
You better not be kidding
I made a bet, I bet it all
I’m not prepared to fall
I’m not prepared either for winning
I’m pouring, the coffee mug wine
do you want your own, or just share some of mine
I’m pouring, the coffee mug wine
for what feels like the very last time
yeah it feels like the very last time
Track Name: Furtherer of Chucknology
Hanging dead magnets around your neck.
Sending beeps and blips through walls of cement.
It’s not. It’s not what you want.
I know it’s not what you meant.
Hanging dead magnets around your neck.
It’s not. It’s not what you meant.
Furtherer of myths
Fourths and fifths and sixths
Furtherer of hits
Swing and swing and...
Having technology around your head.
To have a firehorse and then to beat him dead.
It’s not. It’s not the best.
Check check. Tech techie tech.
The furtherer you could around your head
Furtherer of myths
Fourths and fifths and sixths
Furtherer of hits
Swing and swing and...
Track Name: Stuck Inside
breakin trees and emergencies
freeze back the search
short the bail the plutonomy fails
I’m leaving church, can’t leave the church
I’m stuck inside
I’m stuck inside
I can’t imagine I’d manage to hide
I’m stuck inside
who are you stuck like super glue
crossing lines with no concern they’ll find. you.
please please fall down to your
knees please please please fall down to your
knees, please please please please please please please please
licking walls the ice cold walls
can’t we behave
turn to drones or counting stones
i’ll leave the cave, can’t leave the cave
I’m stuck inside
I’m stuck inside
I can’t imagine I’d manage to hide
I’m stuck inside
(solo)
I’m stuck inside
I’m stuck inside
I can’t imagine I’d manage to hide
I’m stuck inside
Track Name: You Better Not Be Dead
You better not be dead...
You better not be dead
When I come back home
I better find you sound asleep in bed.
You better be alone
You better find me a home. Ooh ooh ooh.
We all need a home, and so do you.
Invented by your gill
Your pumping half-full heart
Keep it keeping time, keep your vessels filled.
You never did your part.
You better not be dead. You better not be dead.
You better not be dead. You better not be dead.
You better not be home
Or else you’ll find me dead
You better not be sleeping all alone.
All alone in bed.
We all fall softly. Ooh ooh ooh.
We all fall softly, and so should you.
You better not be dead. You better not be dead.
You better not be dead. You better not be dead.
Track Name: The Zestpond Monkeywrench Hexteria Enhancer
(instrumental - Shepard Scale)
Track Name: Twos
on the night when we
were seeing things that no one sees
like love and dust, the breeze
ooh, ooh
creatures great and small
were all in tune with father’s call
paired up like for a ball
ooh, ooh
so few made it through
now there would be nothing new
for us or them or you
ooh, ohh
