about

This album lies somewhere between folk and electronic, probably more towards the folk end. There are a couple of songs written by my friends Tom Woodward and Sam Johnstone. There's several I wrote including a song about Renfield from Bram Stoker's Dracula and a song about a Siamese twin girlfriend. Then there are instrumentals I made to use in the soundtracks of short films of mine including a couple of collaborations with my friend Emma Kelly. I like this record a lot, I hope you do too. Cheers - Konrad Lenz.

Track Name: After the War
After the War

After the war
You went away
I never left your side
I just lost my way

I'm feeling weak
My head is light
The Creole band
Plays through the night

We try to learn
We never change
You and me
We're still the same

You're always there
Through all my thoughts
The night is dark
Our time is short

I can't explain
Why I stayed so long
You're all I know
All I ever want

We try to learn
We never change
You and me
We're still the same

The colour drains
Rain falls from the sky
My leather coat
Keeps me dry

You start to speak
And then you pause
I have my price
And you have yours

We try to learn
We never change
You and me
We're still the same

I can't escape
From my past
The last is first
And the first is last

Under the waves
No sound at all
The world is big
We are so small

We try to learn
We never change
You and me
We're still the same

Track Name: What is Left
What is Left

Went to the city
Going Uptown
Gonna lay me my
burden down

Done some things
I still regret
This world may be folding
But it ain't ended yet

Feeling so lonesome
Can't even cry
Had it coming like an
Eye for an eye

Hand me my Martin
I'm stepping right back
Feeling funny my mind
The sky's turned to black

Leaving this city
Leaving this town
I got me a woman
Who's jailhouse bound

All that I've been through
Pleasures I've known
Nobody's business
But my own

I'll cry for you
You done me wrong
This life that we lead
It's all ended wrong

Hard to see clearly
So hard to connect
What exactly has gone
And what is still left

River Jordan
Cold and wide
When this night it has ended
You'll be there by my side

River Jordan
Chilly and cold
Freezes the body
Cuts deep through the soul

I've been a rake
And a rambling boy
Many a city
Did I enjoy

I've done some things
I still regret
This world may be folding
But it ain't ended yet

Hard to see clearly
So hard to connect
What exactly has gone
And what is still left

Track Name: Siamese Twin #2
Siamese Twin

Two in one
She's my girl
Siamese twin
On the Tilt-A-Whirl

She's got two bodies
She's got two minds
She's joined in the middle
She's one of a kind

She's double the trouble
She gives double the lip
But in our twin bed
We are joined at the hip

Two in one
She's my girl
Siamese twin
On the Tilt-A-Whirl

Two in one
She's my girl
Siamese twin
On the Tilt-A-Whirl

When she leaves me
It breaks me in two
But she always returns
And I'm as good as new

One side's happy
One side's sad
One side is good
The other is completely mad

Siamese twin
She's my girl
Siamese twin
On the Tilt-A-Whirl

Siamese twin
She's my girl
Siamese twin
On the Tilt-A-Whirl

Siamese twin
On the Tilt-A-Whirl

Track Name: Night Moves
Night Moves

There's no window in these walls
Your new man looks just like me
I don't recognize myself
I left you too easily

You wait behind a killer's smile
I never thought I'd be coming back
Your child is bundled in your arms
And you are everything I lack

I guess that people never change
I was scared it would come to this
You play the banjo in the rain
And it fills this emptiness

Track Name: Renfield Follows the Swarm of Bees
Renfield Follows the Swarm of Bees

Shadows cross the barren fields
Renfield follows the swarm of bees
His deadpan face stares up at the sky
The angry mob has got him on his knees

He is held in the hospital
He eats the insects and the birds
He writes in blood upon the walls
But only he can read his words

If I could just start from scratch
If only I could start again
I could have been someone
Instead of what I became
Instead of what I became

Seward watches through the observation trap
He notes the smile on Renfield's face
He records his thoughts on a phonograph
His patient is not a text book case

The Demeter moves across the waves
In the night plague takes all her crew
A big black dog leaps to the shore
Renfield knows his days of confinement are through

If I could just start from scratch
If only I could start again
I could have been someone
Instead of what I became
Instead of what I became
