about

These songs were recorded for KJHK in Lawrence, KS. They aired on April 2nd, 2015.
Here are some funny things about it:
They did video too and the cameras were right up in my grill, rendering playing more interesting. That video can be found here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQc-pzn5ZC8
It was the earliest "show" we've ever played and it shows. We didn't get our fuel in!
It was a lot of fun (not funny, but whatever)
It was sometimes out of key and sloppy, but so are we and so are you

Track Name: Kowloon (Walled City)
We were here before but undocumented
They came, they went; but we never moved

I chose a while back to never write our history down
Instead, you see, we sing it on and on

Around campfires, our stories go: we keep time together
Our hearts do flow: we keep time together

Sing that song to me: sing it in C
Tell me that story: the story of our history

They'll have come, and they'll have gone and never have found a trace
Our stories, they are told, from face-to-face
Track Name: Lidice
We heard the footsteps early on
Mistaken for the severely drunk
Unusual for a Wednesday
Especially in our occupied town
We thought nothing of it
Until the footsteps finally stopped

The sun never came up for us
We the ones in our PJs
They with unsubstantiated hate
We were a line in his opus

Here we are today
Standing on a hill in bronze
Overlooking our hometown
A vast memory of what was
Though it might seem like nothing
We all died for a cause

There came and went those bangs
And there were flashes of light
We kind of knew what to expect
When we were told to stand outside

My father’s mattress up against the wall
Five by five by ten by ten
Though they feared, they stood tall
And then and there our brothers did fall
No sense in asking why the did it
They were all lemmings with guns

Our ghosts will dance on empty graves
In dance halls that are long-since razed
The cause they fought left our lives gone
They came to find that the village was wrong
