Friday Nite (free) 02:54
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?

Apple Pie 05:07
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

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.....

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

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

Killer Bob 05:25
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

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.....

Freaks 02:55
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

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

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
