about

An unabashed collection of to the point garage rock tunes! "ignoble" is an out and out embrace of the joy and guttural effects of loud, simple and aggressive sounds. Lyrically the songs on "ignoble" are direct, literal and momentary snapshots of impulse. The only exceptions being "mouthbreather" and "scissor girl" which were created lyrically first. They are didactic recollections of dreams morphed into awkward lateral musical prose.

Take this album as a guilty pleasure. We all need a little angst, frustration and pissiness in our lives at times! Enjoy.

Hey, What's It to You? (The Garage)

woke up this mornin'
got me feet moving
stuck my head in a couple of coffees
oh how I try...

it not like you even care
why do you bother stare
I could go on
but nothing's wrong

Hey, what's it to you
It's not like you ever you knew...
Hey, what's it to you
It's not like you ever you knew...

my day ends like it starts
short steps never too far
lost in my thoughts I log all I've forgot
i hold on to what I know
i wade so slow
i hold on to what I know
i walk so slow

Chorus

it just the time
to turn around
to turn around
turn around
turn around
turn it around
turn yourself around

A Commuter's Story

wake up
shake it up
dry my face
and give it up
I push my
breakfast down
push myself around

I'm in my car now
turn up the radio

I can't do this anymore

I pull my tie up
turn around and do it up

I fill my veins now
caffeine,
nicotine
and anything else in between
that makes me forget

that makes me forget
that makes me forget

what happened to me
when did I give up the dream

It ain't punk rock
but it's all I got
It ain't punk rock
but it's all I got

fill my face with shit
fill my heart with dirt
fill heart with hurt
bury me...

Found a box full of lies

woke up this morning
blood was pouring
from my heart

maybe I'm mourning
the end of a start
went to the well
and I found the shell
of the man I was once was
but I couldn't find myself

woke up this morning
blood was pouring
from my heart
yeah it was without warning
maybe I'm mourning
the end of a start
went to the well
and I found a broken shell
of the man I was once was
but I didn't see myself

just whistles and bells with nothing left to sell

Track Name: Crutch
Crutch

I walk with a crutch
I think like a crutch
I live like a crutch
I've got no luck as such

...they don't want me anymore
...they don't call me anymore

gonna break my crutch
gonna smash my crutch
gonna throw my crutch
gonna try my luck

...they don't want me anymore
...they don't call me anymore

I live like a crutch
I break like a crutch
I move like a crutch
I've got no lunch as such

...they don't want me anymore
...they don't call me anymore

I'm spinning, I'm treading
my sweet feet are glued to the floor
...they don't call me anymore
I've been told this before
I know me no more
I know me no more
my sweet feet
are glued to the truth
my sweet feet are
glued to the truth

Track Name: The Mouthbreather Attack
The Mouthbreather Attack

I'm on the road to nowhere
my passenger is a Mouthbreather
wrapped in Ego,
futility
and stupidity
...that's her.
I pull in to a pharmacy
just me and the Mouthbreather

I don't want to be a Mouthbreather
I concede to retrieve just what you need
but I don't want to be a Mouthbreather

she thinks people see her,
want to be her,
envy her
but we know she is nothing more than a deceiver
I stop at the counter and to my disbelief
I see my lean,
my dream,
my line
I turn to see what cannot be
but behind me is the vindictive giver
packing shelfs
one
by
one
tearing down dreams

she eyes the Mouthbreather
she wants what she's got
she eyes the Mouthbreather
she hates what she's not
she eyes the Mouthbreather
she covers me in all
she eyes the Mouthbreather
she's got it on

she cover me in syrup with her silver tongue
-Sticky-
she gives me what she buys
the motives have begun
my feet are glued the counter
and breathing down my back
Is the Mouthbreather attack
attack...

Track Name: Scissor Girl and Sidekick Sally
Scissor girl and sidekick Sally

scissor girl and sidekick sally
stabbed my friend in a back alley
oh how she yells when she doth stab
the soldier of the yellow cabs
the revolution was bought and sold
the revolution is privileged and old

and Scissor girl
...scissor girl
wouldn't you know it
scissor girl smiles tells me I'm next
I have to run no time to rest
schizoid and devoid of meaning
I see no way
no real reason

so Outside the shoppers drug mart
I hide behind a grocers cart
an old man plays a game of chess
betting on himself,
more or less
Sidekick Sally,
oh she smiles like Orc
and behind me Scissor girl
pokes me with a fork

she says...
oh he's done
he's done
he's done...

I can't stop her little reptilian hands
and her thyroid oiled eyes they don't understand
she says The rock revival is just cliche
nothing left, with nothing new to say
she laughs,
...yesterday's movement is today's translucent...
no communication
just abject motivations

I look in
and the scissors go in
oh she makes me grin
she's says to me
I'm a paradox
the scissors go In
I'm a parody
It's the way it has to be
she says to me
It's the way it has to be

me, I'm just yesterday's parody...
