about

Earwig Columbus

The un-published novel “My Own Secret Service” details the origins of the underground band Earwig and their fantastic adventures as they battle to save the Multiverse from a secret society of invading demons who occupy a parallel dimension. The self-proclaimed “true” rock-and-roll memoir forms the basis of Earwig’s new album “Pause For The Jets” (available from Anyway/LFM Records). ... more

Track Name: Trees
These trees turn black in winter and a sap runs through my veins/ All these decisions that I haven’t decided are just mistakes that I haven’t made/ You’ve come to read my mind, yes you’re in search of a subtle sign/ Did we go to bed yet? Has it even happened?/ You keep me in arrest/ You’re kissing kisses to attest/ Then you’re just a dream again/ And nothing ever happens/ I guess you’re the ending that I never saw coming on
Track Name: Star Cross'd
Oh man, you said a lot/ What a mouthful you said/ I’m gonna play my cards right this time/ I’m sorry, I suppose/ But no one needs to know/ If I play my cards right this time/ On the day the earth stood still/ There was a shot heard around the world/ It was supposed to send a message to me/ I saw spaceships on T.V./ I swear to God they were singing your name/ In a voice I recognized/ Now I hear voices in my head/ And the giant robot said that we were written in the stars/ But you don’t believe it/ You say you just can’t hang around while my head is in the clouds/ But I swear the sky fell down on the day that you left/ And on the day the earth stood still/ There was a silent shooting star/ It was supposed to send a message to wherever you are/ I saw spaceships on T.V./ I swear to God they were singing your name/ In a voice I recognized/ Please take me away, take me anywhere/ ‘Cause I don’t want to be here without you/ Please take me away/ I want to be with you/ Oh man you said a lot/ What a mouthful you said/ And if you know I’m sorry now...well as long as you know that/ I saw fairies in the headlights all along the ride home/ Yeah there were fairies in the headlights/ On the day the earth stood still/ There was a shot heard around the world/ It was supposed to send a message to me/ I saw spaceships on T.V./ I swear to God they were singing your name/ In a voice I recognized/ On the day the earth stood still/ I saw mermaids in the water but how was I supposed to tell you all the things that they told me/ They said that the prophets did declare and it’s written down somewhere/ That our stars were cross’d up there before the day that you were born/ I want to be with you
Track Name: Not About You
I’m not sad no not about, I’m not mad no it’s not about, no I’m not sad not about you / I’m not sad no not about, I’m not mad no it’s not about, no I’m not scared not about you / Cause I always get just what I want and I don’t care much about what I want/ Sometimes I don’t know what I want / Breakdown alone inside again and I’m not scared of trouble now / Breakdown and I will show you how to set it up...and knock it down/ I’m not sad no not about, I’m not mad no it’s not about, no I’m not scared not about you / It’s a pussy cat and a power-puff/ I get what I want but it’s not enough/ No it’s not enough but it’s not about you/ Cause I always get just what I want/ I couldn’t give a shit about what I want/ You know it’s the sad truth about what I want/ Breakdown alone inside again and I’m not scared of trouble now / Breakdown and I will show you how to set it up...and knock it down/ Breakdown and you can call me Daddy, begging please Daddy, please let me have it/ I’m not sad no not about, I’m not mad no it’s not about, no I’m not scared not about you/ Cause I always get just what I want/ I couldn’t give a shit about what I want/ You know it’s the sad truth about what I want/
Track Name: Her Heart
Sinking in, how it all came and went again/ How could I forget?/ How could I care less?/ Deciding that we never meant the secrets that we never kept/ On and On, from Cheat Mountain, gone and left behind Bradywine/ So set aside your Bradywine eyes, you know I’ll never be satisfied/ I know you and you’ll say that It’s just not the same since we went away/ It’s all left behind now/ But her heart says anything that she wants it to/ And when she says “I’ve been torn in two a thousand times more than you‘d know.”/ Well, you should know/ Deciding that we never meant the secrets that we never kept/ I know you, I know just where you think that this is going to/ It’s all left behind now/ I know you and you’ll say that it’s just not the same since we moved away/ But her heart says anything she wants it to.
Track Name: Lovesong Cockroach
Now there’s something that I’d like to tell you, then maybe you’ll go away/ I’m a sucker for dead meat and pheromones and anything you throw away/ Yeah, nothing here goes to waste/ I don’t want you tell me you love me, I just want you leave me alone/ I don’t need you to tell me that you want me, I really just want to fuck and go home/ Now there’s something that I’ve got to tell you, then maybe you’ll go away/ Eventually something feeds on the body, the longer that you let it lay/ Yeah, nothing here goes to waste/ Breed. Hiss. Decay/ I don’t want you tell me you love me, I just want you leave me alone/ I don’t need you to tell me that you want me, I really just want to fuck and go home/
Track Name: Sleepyhead
You’ve been gone for so long, I can’t seem to sleep tonight/, don’t go and leave me alone again here/ You lay in the bed so sleepyhead, let’s put a real man in your shoes and see what happens to you/ You don’t, don’t, don’t/ I may be young and you may be cool but I’m aware of what goes down in my town/ And yes, I know that this is your home but I’m going down and we both know that you’ll save your time and slip away again/ Don’t lie to me, you don’t lie to me/ Don’t, don’t lie to me/ If you never want to say goodbye, don’t lie to me
Track Name: Next Christmas
I’m not waiting for you this time and you’re not saying what’s on your mind/ But I tasted every word in your mouth/ And now there’s no use waiting around for you to spit it out/ By next Christmas baby, you will forget about me/ I got the letter that made your intentions clear/ Yeah, it was signed with Love... and Better Luck next year/ But I’m not waiting, no I won’t hesitate/ Cause now I’m not crying, I’m spitting up blood/ and I’m not just trying to make this tough on you/ Please, what did you mean when you said to me/ By next Christmas baby, you will forget about me/ You will forget about Christmas/ By this time next year, my darling dear, I’ll be a memory/ Now every Christmas song I hear is signed with Love...and Better Luck next year/ Cause now I’m not crying, I’m spitting up blood/ and I’m not just trying to make this tough on you/ On you please, what did you mean when you promised me/ You will forget about Christmas/ You will forget about me/ Please make no mistake with all the drugs you take and all the songs you sing/ By next Christmas Ill be shooting up with the angels among the stars/ Yeah, I'll own the stars
Track Name: Glorious & Gloom
Look at my eyes, I can’t stay awake/ You see these things but they are not real/ Hold me closer now, it’s where I want to be/ All my senses are going fast/ Is this the sign of a wasted life?/ Well, it might be time to say goodnight/ These days are kissing and bitchin’ spent and now there’s a sense that it’s closing in/ Yeah it’s closing in/ I’m giving up, I’m not ready yet/ If there’s a sweetness inside I might never find what might be mine/ You think that everyone is poison/ On the lips and under, just to get to you/ I can’t see a way around this Glorious & Gloom/ Maybe this is what makes you so beautiful/ These days are kissing and bitchin’ spent/ Now there’s a sense that it’s closing in/ Yeah it’s closing in/ Yours is a hold that cannot be shook/ And given time, I might be ready to never find I’m not ready now/ You think that everyone is poison/ On the lips and under, just to get to you/ You make me want to sing, waking up screaming/ Sad and so alone/ Now these days are kissing and bitchin’ , Glorious & Gloom
Track Name: Wicked
I was bitten by a spider, she was a black and lovely thing/ She dragged me straight away to Heaven and now when I get weak/ She picks me up and takes me by the hand and bleeds me ‘til I’m dry/ With sugar sweet and wicked kisses that make me sick inside/ She sings all the songs that I used to know, but I don’t sing them any more/ I fell in love with a spider when she came along to me/ So sad and lonely and dangerous and that’s the way she’ll always be/ I know that soon she will be gone from here, but always on my mind/ And she will leave me to wallow in her poison with black, un-sorry angel eyes/ And when it starts to burn, I bury my regrets/ She fills me with comfort and rest/ She cries all the time now, the morning and the night/ Yeah I’m in love and I’m sick inside/ I fell in love with a spider, but she won’t belong to me/ So sad and lonely and dangerous and that’s the way she’ll always be/ And when it starts to burn, I bury my regrets/ She fills me with comfort and rest/ She sings all the songs that I used to know, but I don’t sing them any more/ I fell in love with a spider
Track Name: Shiny Morning
You’re never on my side, if winter comes and I can’t keep you warm/ Your moment has begun, your shiny morning in the sun/ And all across the universe, forgetting stars, if I could let you run/ We’d run ‘til we got caught and sing the songs that we forgot/ Let’s sing the songs that we forgot again/ And I wave as the cars pass by on this shiny morning/ When your moment has begun, it’s been a long time coming on.../ I forgot I knew this place/ I faded out to black without a sound/ Morning run around, we wake up when we come down/ And all across the universe, if I could let you run/ We’d run ‘til we got caught and sing the songs that we forgot/ Let’s sing the songs that we forgot again/ And I wave as the cars pass by on this shiny morning/ When your moment has begun, it’s been a long time coming on.../Let’s run ‘til we get caught and sing the songs that we forgot/ Let’s sing the songs that we forgot again/ And I wave as the cars pass by on this shiny morning/ When your moment has begun, it’s been a long time coming on...
Track Name: Rumplestiltskin
I have waited such a long time for the promise that you made/ you are mine to cradle, you are mine/ I have waited such a long time and the Devil is my friend/ You are mine to cradle, you are mine/ You are mine and the Devil is my friend/ You are mine to cradle, you are mine/ I have waited such a long time and the Devil knows my name/ You are my one time thing, you are mine/ I have waited such a long time and the Devil told you that!/ You are mine to cradle, you are mine/ You are mine and the Devil knows my name/ You are my one time thing/ You are mine / Ohhh..../ My name’s got a potion on it/ If you can guess, I’ll tear myself in two/ Yeah, my name’s got a potion on it/ Goddamn my name
