Gavin Hellyer Pretty no-nonsence and in your face assault from the garage. Great tunes and heaps of energy. It's infectious and I love it. Favorite track: Conspiracy, O' Conspiracy.

1.
So hi on nationalistic pride she cried. Faded, hated, hearts, bitter, declined. Better find clarity, better find that damn line. The choice to live best, made by force rather than design. Dumb, dumb, dumb. Internationalism, failure, one world divide. Constant by proxy only leads to clouded ideals. Best try your luck, best test your wires. Bits, bytes, hearts, clouds, wires. Heaven help the ones that try, only if they have the hearts to. Faded, hated, hearts, bitter, declined. Better find clarity, better find that damn line. The choice to live best, made by force rather than design.
2.
Deception rides the wire. Filtered through your digits. Delivered by beasts on hi. Subverting bits and bytes and mires. High-hopes, low-times. High-stakes, dumpster fires. Doubted by deduction. Destroyed by minds on hi. Anger won't help. Action vs time. Deliver parallel designs.
3.
Oh, King + Queen. Gonna itch, gotta place to be. Monstrous ways, horrid till the ends. Gotta itch on me.
4.
Sister, sister. Tingling, twisting up my spine. Brother, brother. Clouded vision, got a clear, clear mind. Friend, my friend. Call to me and drag the line. Head, my head. Got that line of mine. Bitter shake, shake, shake, shake... Shake my medulla. Sister, sister. Belting out your love of time. Brother, brother. Linear life is a trick of light. Friend, my friend. Goddamn sky, so far and wide. Head, my head. Tricking, testing, fooling, mine. Bitter shake, shake, shake, shake... Shake my medulla.
5.
Sandy's gonna try, greens and blues and boys online. Gilded and projected, bitter, enclosed. Oh, better scream to them, Oh, better grow. Days like these aren’t gonna make you whole. Sandy's gonna try, stronger than their mind. Vanity falls in line, calls to them, calls to bytes. Oh, climb the sea, Oh, be my scene. Hell knows you wouldn't be without me. Bitter bytes, daily lies, damaged minds. Sandy’s gonna try, Sandy’s right on time.
6.
Speedin’ off to nowhere fast, calling down the wire. Believe me baby, nothin's gonna glide. Contempt collides, dangerous and defined. Believe me baby, I gotta break my vice. Break my vice.
7.
I’m crowned by my betrayal. Holy pressure, vacant days. Openness is delayed. Crowned by catastrophe, crowned by malaise. I’m crowned by the grey. Bearing down, fading days. Fuzz and wire and hope and hell. Crowned by catastrophe, crowned by malaise. I’m crowned by my ways. Data built in from the start. Information helps, darker than the hills. Crowned by catastrophe, crowned by malaise.
8.
The birch canoe slid on the smooth planks. Glue the sheet to the dark blue background. It's easy to tell the depth of a well. These days a chicken leg is a rare dish. Rice is often served in round bowls. The juice of lemons makes fine punch. The box was thrown beside the parked truck. The hogs were fed chopped corn and garbage. Four hours of steady work faced us. Large size in stockings is hard to sell. What joy there is in living. The boy was there when the sun rose. A rod is used to catch pink salmon. The source of the huge river is the clear spring. Kick the ball straight and follow through. Help the woman get back to her feet. A pot of tea helps to pass the evening. Smoky fires lack flame and heat. The soft cushion broke the man's fall. What joy there is in living. Vocal samples: Open Speech Repository
9.
Beam on beam, storm on hi. Pull me in, ego bled dry. Stagnation, our hopes bled down. Only quiet nights, narcissist defined. Data close-by, written up in bytes. Fuck me my friend, why so blind. Gonna help you climb from the mire. The beam pulls you in, fire, bloody fire.
