about

"Seamus Erskine's weirdo pop music is a welcome anomaly to the Halifax music scene. With his eccentric lyrics, quasi-psychedelic riffs and intriguing sense of melody, Seamus harkens something lost from the past, but channels something that has yet to arrive from the future."
-Halifax Is Burning

Track Name: Friday Nite
Another night has gone down the tubes
And my lonely life will continue to go this way

Until I meet the girl who's in my dreams
The one that the candy coloured clown shows me
Every night

Will you be the one who loves me tender every Friday Nite?

The weekly routine is mundane and awful
But your love could make it worthwhile every night

Will you be the one who loves me tender every Friday Nite?
Track Name: Apple Pie
Endless summer, seems so long ago
When everyone knew our love was true
And sweeter than apple pie
Moon mist sunsets, vanilla clouds in the sky
The love in the air, that we did share
Came from a dwindling supply
La La La La
How could you not care?
You were always there before
Now I am forced to chew my dreams away
Every single night, tonight
I've been waiting, been counting down the days
'Til summer's return, oh how I yearn
For someone to take your place
La La La La
How could you not care?
You were always there before
Now I am forced to chew my dreams away
Every single night, tonight
The candy coloured clown
Rarely comes around, anymore
Now I am forced to chew my dreams away
Every single night, tonight
Track Name: Booze For Breakfast
Waking up is when the nightmare starts...

Booze for breakfast again (I don't want it)
Face all puffy and red (but I need it)
Eggs sunny side up, sheep dip in my cup

Detached and feeling numb is only way to live for some
And I need to
Golden, crispy hash browns
Wash them down, down, down....

I need to stimulate my mind
And have myself a time
Just like in the old days, before they went away
Now I battle bouts of ennui, I feel like a zombie
Everyday

Waking up is when the nightmare starts.....
Track Name: Hefeweizen Highway
Hefeweizen Highway awaits, over the rainbow
So close but, so far away
I want to ride again
On Hefeweizen Highway shining
On the horizon
So close but, so far away
I want to ride again, on the golden road

Wait for the clock to strike five
Then I'm free to forget how lonely I've become
Track Name: Candied Colours
Give me just a little taste
Oh no, I won't let it go to waste
After all, what's it all for anyway
And I think you would agree

Drifting off to sleep alone tonight
Candied colours swirl around so bright
Maybe you'll appear inside a dream
And stay with me until it fades away

Moon mist sunset, apple pie
My oh my, oh what a lucky guy
All good things seem to melt away
Give me just a little taste

Drifting off to sleep alone tonight
Candied colours swirl around so bright
Maybe you'll appear inside a dream
And stay with me until it fades away
Track Name: Killer Bob
I am the one who creeps into your room
In through the window, every night
Staring at you from the edge of your bed
All you can see is my eyes
Ohhh
I'm Killer Bob.
Make my return to the place whence I came,
Under the sycamore trees
And if you smell burning then you will know
Oh you will know where I've been
Ohh
Give me all my Garmonbozia
Track Name: Shooting Stars
We drive around at night
No destination in our sight
Aided by the Prime Times, from the store
We only seek some truth
And with every loop, it may be revealed....

We're just passing through
See the man in the moon
Shooting stars are falling....

Questioning the ways
We live out our days
Could we just be dreaming this whole time?
The Prime Time smoke is thick
It's enough to make me sick
But the smoke is central.....

To this cosmic drive
We philosophize
Until the sun is shining.....

Some things can be so troubling
The world can be so puzzling sometimes

We're just passing through
See the man in the moon
Shooting stars are falling.....
Track Name: Freaks
Maybe we aren't good enough
Maybe we aren't good enough, for you
We don't mind. We're doing fine.

Maybe we aren't so pretty
But we don't need your pity
We make people laugh, and we make people cry

Gooble Gobble, hey now
Gooble Gobble, whoa now

Maybe he's just a torso, baby
Maybe she's got a moustache
We don't care, no, it's only hair

Maybe we aren't good enough
Maybe we aren't good enough, for you
We don't mind. We're doing fine.

Gooble Gobble, hey now
Gooble Gobble, whoa now
Track Name: Olfactory Nitemare
It's an olfactory nitemare, on the bus, every time
But I don't mind so much, with you sitting by my side
Yes it's an olfactory nitemare, on the bus, every night
But I don't mind so much, with you sitting by my side

Every breath that I take in
Is a flaming, cardinal sin
Now you're gone and I can't get off
Feels like I missed my stop
