Alex Roe I found this group by accident and was a real damn treat to listen to. Very slick music with an authentic voice. Favorite track: The Youth Militia.

Track Name: Reckoner
Reckoner
You can't take it with you
Reckoner
Dancing for your pleasure
Reckoner
You are not to blame for
Those bitter sweet
Bitter sweet
Bitter sweet, distractors

We seperate like ripples on a blank shore
We seperate like ripples on a blank shore
Like ripples on a blank shore
Like ripples on a blank shore
Dedicated to all
Dedicated to all
Like ripples
Ripples
Ripples
Ripples
Oh, to all you
All you
To all you

Mr Reckoner
Reckoner, reckoner, reckoner, reckoner
As it ripples we all seperate
As it ripples we all seperate
Reckoner, Reckoner
Dedicated to all you
Track Name: Changes
Drab
Dull
There's a void in my soul
Who needs these old and mouldy thoughts
I want you
Something beautiful
Colourful and magical
An acid dream
Bursting at the seems
With vitality, vivacity
Shine and sparkle
Flame and fire

Fire
Give me fire
Fire, fire, fire, fire, fire
Oh that fire

I need change

Said
Spoke
Five words then it broke
Why have these crippled parts of me?
Without you
Nothings beautiful
Colourful or magical
A lifeless dream
Split at the seems
With apathy, manotony
The tedium of my desires

The tedium of my desires

I need change
I need change
I need change
Its all the same
Everythings the same
So give me fire, fire, fire, fire, fire
I had fire, fire, fire, fire, fire, fire, fire, fire
I had fire

Give me fire oh
Still find no fire
Nothing's changed
Where's my fire oh
Always the same
You gave me fire
Track Name: The Youth Militia
White lady
The wolves are out and the moon
Is howling
Mother mojo
Hour after hour after hour, after hour
We dance on
We dance on
We dance on

Dusty star
Tickle and itch like a bitch
On heat
Candy floss
Around and around and around
Till legs cave in
Around and around and around
Around and around and around
Till legs
Cave in

Oh yes,
Now rip right through
And breath in and breath out
Oh yes,
Now stretch that sound
And breath in and breath out

Strawberry sunshine
Fun to be found
On the merry go round
Crank it up
Louder and louder and louder
With that snow white appetite
Crank it up
Crank it up
Louder and louder and louder
Louder and louder and louder
Louder and louder and louder
With that snow white appetite

Oh yes,
Now rip right through
And breath in and breath out
Oh yes,
Now stretch that sound
And breath in and breath out

Oh yes
Oh yes
Now rip
Now rip
Right on through
Oh yes
Oh YES
Track Name: Undeserved
Dawn is near
A figure blowing smoke rings in the bedroom corner
Contemplates
How the miss-used mind
Feeds the broken soul

In our dreams
The door is ajar and we creep closer
But the sunlight burns
And we must return to the darkness

Is this what we deserve
Is this what we deserve

Greedy hearts with open hands
Fickle fingers tingle with anticipation
As gold
Is gently placed inside them

Now say your prayers
Oh lord, We know we've been bad
Oh lord
We know we've been bad

Matchstick girl
In light of flame you chase the shadow of your love
Face pressed to window pain
How you ache
In desperate tone
Voices wrapped in rhythms of lost lullaby's
Yeah you're spellbound
Drawn towards the sound of the darkness

Is this what we deserve
Is this what we deserve
Is this what we deserve
Is this what we deserve
Is this what we deserve
Is this what we deserve

Lord
We know we've been bad
Lord, lord, oh lord
Who knows
The sun might come out
