about

Some journeys are meant to be walked alone - this is not one of those. Four musical souls with generous doses of whimsy and madness rooted in experimental funk found each other in music college. Some moons and a generous cat loving Finn later, the album "Tidy Funk" makes its appearance. A little Latin sway, jazzy harmonies, smooth R&B notes tied together with a love of experimental funk... from us to you. Presenting: "Tidy Funk".

Track Name: Sandman
Mr.Sandman bring me a dream
Make her complexion like peaches and cream
Give her two lips like roses and clover
And tell me that my lonesome nights are over

Mr.Sandman bring me a dream
I've been keeping it clean
I've been walking the straight line
Trying not to scream

I dream of light at night
Running through the sands of time
to you

Mr.Sandman bring a dream
Past the troubled and jumbled sleep
Into a place of colour and lovers
And tell me that my lonesome nights are over

All I want is to get away
From these undeserving streets
All I want is a little break From this repetitive streak

I dream of light and life
Running through the sands of time
to you

Mr.Sandman hear me speak
I've been balancing a treacherous peak
Waiting for dusk to gather
To bring me some release

All around me darkness gathers
Fading is the sun that shone
We must speak of other matters
You can have me when I'm gone

Mr.Sandman
Bring me a dream
[Repeats}
Track Name: Whatever Happened...
Whatever happened to those days
Where people would fight for something they craved
Whatever happened to those times
Where words meant something apart from just a rhyme
Whatever happened…
to the unceasing
wave of our minds

The fallen stay in confines
Of their increasing hopeless ignorant minds
You will never own me
You will never keep me from fighting you can't
It's only the beginning

Whatever happened to that song
That kept us from doing no wrong
Whatever happened to those cries
We scream to keep us from all those treacherous lies
Whatever happened…
to the unceasing
wave of our minds

The fallen stay in confines
Of their increasing hopeless ignorant minds
You will never own me
You will never keep me from fighting you can't
It's only the beginning

We ain't got the time
For all these problems like global warming
Because it doesn't concern me or how I look this morning
Put my high heels in, my hair, my shoes , my clothes, my makeup
Go to burn with friends party till the sun comes up
Wait by the bar for you to come and find me
Take me out wine and dine me

We ain't got the time
Me myself and I
[Repeats]

You will never own me
You will never keep me from fighting you can't
[Repeats]
Track Name: What Have We Become?
What have we become?
What have we become?
We're losing soul
losing self control
What have we become?

We ignore the signs
The rift widens
we haven't got the time
Consequences of sound
momentarily found

What have we become?
What have we become?
This hunger burns
in life's twisted turn
What have we become?

There's no pause to the cries
Ignorance is what we live by
Reach the end of the line
we surrender blind

Lose yourself to that beautiful sound
Dream your way into hallowed ground
Live your life in this constant refrain
Nor sad nor proud these questions seem in vain

What have we become?
What have we become?
Whatever mourns
when many leave these shores
What have we become?

We ignore the signs
The rift widens we
haven't got the time
Consequences of sound
momentarily found.

Happy are these who lose imagination:
They have enough to carry with ammunition.
Their spirit drags no pack.
Their old wounds, save with cold, can not more ache.
Having seen all things red,
Their eyes are rid
Of the hurt of the colour of blood for ever.
And terror’s first constriction over,
Their hearts remain small-drawn.
Their senses in some scorching cautery of battle
Now long since ironed,
Can laugh among the dying, unconcerned.

But cursed are dullards whom no cannon stuns,
That they should be as stones.
Wretched are they, and mean
With paucity that never was simplicity.
By choice they made themselves immune
To pity and whatever moans in man
Before the last sea and the hapless stars;
Whatever mourns when many leave these shores;
Whatever shares
The eternal reciprocity of tears

What have we become?
What have we become?
Track Name: Moonlight
Moonlight suffers in the dark tonight
Take it slow lover dim the lights
She's waiting for your answers
Run along run fast tonight
Pay attention lest you lose the fight
You follow her follow her over

This fleeting life
You feel it's flight
It dims the lights
Watches you stall, you crawl, you fall

Moonlight suffers in the dark tonight
You trip, you stumble, through the spite
It covers covers you in lies.
She'll be waiting at the door tonight
Dressed to please, her hair set right
These hours, bleed into days

This fleeting life
You feel it's flight
It dims the lights
Watches you stall, you crawl, you fall

Whisper
Dark magic in her ears now
Bring her to life with sounds now
Take her to these magic worlds now
For she's been waiting far too long to call you call you whisper sweet words
the truth
Broken, bruised despised she tries to stumble through a life
Her eyes they've dried these tears they fallen
No longer leaving scars across her fragile walls
Of deceit and lies finding sweet mercy in the nights

Running running running running low
She's running running running from hope
Fall apart into fragments

Moonlight drowns in the dark tonight
Her memories will win the fight
She hoping for some answers
The doors close in as she clings to light
These moments turn into waking life
Life now, turns black and white.

This fleeting life
You feel it's flight
It dims the lights
Watches you stall, you crawl, you fall

You stall, you crawl, you fall
[Repeats]
Track Name: The World in Truth
Lost in the forest I lay dying
Listening to the sounds of the rain crying
I heard her through the deafening noise, the muffled
whispers her torn voice

Her drifting fragrance touched my mind
Her laughter rang through the trees, her touch kind
The doors opened cracking with rust
The walls crumbled to dust

By azure water and the flow
Of the river these streams they grow
Into night a dark hue the world in truth

This expanse of blue fades into light
Empty space seems full to my timid eye
Lying flat on tar the smell of grass
A window opens to my stone heart

A place so true it blinds the sun
Her touch burns you turn to run
The light this colour seeping through my sepia veins
Her warm hands lay claim

By azure water and the flow
Of the river these streams they grow
Into night a dark hue the world in truth
Track Name: Explosion
A hush has settled over the town
The silence overrides the sound
I'm hanging on the edge
of what might seem to be an explosion

The sun is setting into the night
A storm is brewing in sight
There's a change in the wind
it seems to me to be an explosion

You can't fight it all of the time
Wondering how you'll find
Peace of mind

There are people looking from their homes
Restlessly humming their songs
They're waiting they're waiting they're waiting
For a crack in the armour an explosion

You can't fight it all of the time
Wondering how you'll find
Peace of mind

[Repeats]
Track Name: Sway
Oh sway
Let your heart beat in time with mine today
Runaway
To the farthest of places we find
I crave

Moving to time
Let our bodies entangle entwine
Call me baby one day you'll be mine
Hold me closer our hips slowly rise

To say
It's this passion we cannot ignore, we'll pray
That someday
We'll be asking for all and more
Of this game we play

Moving to time
Let our bodies entangle entwine
Call me baby one day you'll be mine
Hold me closer our hips slowly rise

To sway
This music will keep us in place
We’ll stay

The stars are not wanted put out every one
Pack up the full moon and dismantle the sun
The light, this light burns within our veins.

Moving to time
Let our bodies entangle entwine
Call me baby one day you'll be mine
Hold me closer our hips slowly rise

Hold me like you never let me go
[Repeats]

[Scat]

Sweet words at dawns first light
We fall into the brights
Runaway from borrowed time
We stand through the strife

[Scat]

[Vocal Solo]

[Scat]

Sweet words at dawns first light
We fall into the brights
Runaway from borrowed time
We stand through the strife
