John Kerridge This is one of them albums that pushes the boundaries by fusing a traditional art form and overlaying it with an often considered opposing art form. Folk v drones is a challenging concept. The fusion works well. Very clever and highly enjoyable. Great album and the song writing is superb too. johnkerridge.com Favorite track: Wire Haunts.

I don't understand what you like about it I don't understand what you like about it I am turning into scum I am tangled up in someone else's profitable dream but I am what I seem I don't understand what you like about it I don't understand what you like about it I am hunting in the grass I am walking toward the trash compactor turning on its man the mutiny we ran I don’t understand what you like about it I don’t understand what you like about it I tripped and my tooth caught on the latch I’m weaponizing catch-as-catch-can, frying all day long I’m violent in song I don’t understand what you like about it I don’t understand what you like about it I am driving on a pin encountering an intelligence way beyond its means a marketplace of screens I don’t understand what you like about it I don’t understand what you like about it I am referenced by shit Celebrating Whitman with a pair of kid-made jeans come on man, that’s mean I don't understand what you like about it I don't understand what you like about it I am turning into scum I am tangled up in someone else's profitable dream Am I what I seem? I don’t understand what you like about it I don’t understand what you like about it I am thinking in their song I don't understand what you like about it, am I wrong? Come on, am I wrong?

I command the sparrows and the skunks and the rats and weeds I listen to pierced arrows there ain't nothing you can pin on me I mask up when I leave and I don't know anyone you ain't never seen me and I don't know who you're trying to be I can hunt in the daylight but I can never get outta my stone I can move the cursor but I can't remove the curse all alone I go out in the world when the night comes tumbling you ain't never seen me and I don't know who you're trying to be I don't command nothing but I imagine myself with the weeds a witch in the lowlands but I'm dreaming my way through poisoning leads you ain't never seen me and I don't know what you are I deny everything and I do it before the daylight can shine through the screen and when the night comes burning down through the breeze I don't command nothing but I imagine myself with the rats and the weeds a one way alliance go stepping through the lots in the night with me I'm a wolf with a mask and I can't hear anything over my rubber hide and a penchant for bumping high amplitude low frequencies out in the twilight there's a spine in the heart of the weeds a coward between worlds making salve from names of the stories getting cleaved you ain't never seen me and I don't know what you are Do you know how the names got rigged? tell me baby won't you whisper like a man for me? underneath the midnight moon got the names rigged up in the seams a crack beneath the midnight moon run a line thru the light for demands you can mean I can see what you mean when you mourn for the nameless charging up all your stones with the moon taking sides with invisible war machines when the night comes burning down thru the breeze when the night comes burning down thru the breeze when the night comes burning down thru the breeze

(traditional) come in come in you old true love and chat a while with me for it's been three quarters of a long year or more since I've spoke one word to thee I shan't come in, I shan't set down I ain't got a moment's time and since you are engaged with another true love then yr heart is no longer mine when you were mine, my old true love and your head lay on my breast you could make me believe by the falling of your arm that the sun rose up in the west there is many the star shall jingle in the west there is many the leaf below there is many the damn that shall light upon a man for treating a poor girl so I wish to god I'd never been born or (had) died when I was young then I never would've mourned for my old true love nor (have) courted no other one

a wire haunts my floor a paper folded more a wing removed from its eye the corner in the dye a wire hunts my door a collar on the river get the water to work induce the flood to talk a napkin framed, enshrined you can see this world is kind a sign for all that's good induce forms from the wood a cord plays in my blood a switch would turn it on a sensor makes it heard but hold the body down

well there ain't nothin wrong with my kind of song I'm sure you heard I kicked hard and got kicked out well I coulda kicked harder I shoulda kicked a hole well I could circle back I could come back as a mole I wish I was a mole in the ground I wish I was a lizard in the spring I wish I had a five dollar dress I'd melt into a slick oily blessing I'm going to the store I'm coming back from the store And you don't need no one to tell you who your friends a re I'm lit up on the moon in the sweating mouth of god I'm a partisan and now I know which side I'm on I'm thirsty for the war I'm hangin out pretendin I'm watchin the door I've got a secret star on my nose I'm scratchin from the other side of the wall

a rotten bust a holy sore sneakin' the killers through the side door a naive act wrongfully attacked writin' the killers into the solemn pact I done well, I done good, I done what I could I done well, I done good, I done what I could I done well, I done good, I done what I could "It's hard on me This livin' free how's an honest man make ends meet?" age of war different than before sell your supper, who you singin' for? I done well, I done good, I done what I could I done well, I done good, I done what I could I done well, I done good, I done what I could I done well, I done good, I done what I could (refrain) Longin' to die what do two words mean? sneakin' the puritans into the punk scene tor in the wild anti-security sympathizers been hackin' away - at the root of that tree all things that come come with the memory since you been gone I do whatever I please nothing compares nothing compares It's a fucker's game all tongue cheek throwin' the hardline out in the lieu of sleep don't get me wrong it's a complicated song beneath the paving stones the beach - and then the sea I done well, I done good, I done what I could I done well, I done good, I done what I could I done well, I done good, I done what I could I done well, I done good, I done what I could

With my respect your authenticity would make a junkie out of me I like to crack a joke, I like to read smoke, mint of the seasons, there's a hair in my throat get me high & mighty on my own good times well I deflect the door harkening from heaven back to 1997 romance enough to destroy, but then my life's a toy mint of the seasons, there's a satan in my dick crank it up to eleven and let me enjoy my night I like to look and get looked, I like to ride and get rid of every doubt come on and work it on out with my respect I breathe your mystery today, but you won't be worm-crap to me tomorrow I like to dig in the dirt, I like to get hurt mint of the seasons, magic mint blossoming midnight rolls around and I am also rolling around I heard you once that you could sure avoid heaven livin' other people's legends but would the smoke disappear if you poured enough beer mint of the seasons, there's a psychic streak down the middle of every drunk but I don't wanna be slow prey for the spiders of my illnesses I like to look and get looked, I like to ride and get rid of every doubt come on and work it on out pretty cute with your precious little town and your odyssey of sound but I like a sharp turn of phrase, I like to get phased mint of the seasons, money of the plant world, pay me now and I will never ask for another advance I like to look and get looked, I like to ride and get rid of every doubt come on and work it on out

usurper you only pretend to be a man but you are obviously sleepin in the trough and makin off - with all the riches sleepin with the witches - of the land usurper you don't know - exactly where you stand but you are grabbin for the land catchin on the curses - staggered jagged in the sand the right to pleasure, the right to own a car, the right to walk down the street pretendin you're a man you talk a cow and you don't know but you are just standin in a field waitin to get milked or get killed usurper what you do is real and them furies can peel the flesh off of a redvine or the grapes off of a tree you're skinnin' down all your blockbusters and stretchin' and tannin their hides for me Redemption myth You are in the wild Emaciated and free Redemption song You are sucking blood Prodded and misunderstood Oh sucking blood Sucking blood
