about

Raw version of a song which will feature on the upcoming Crayola Lectern album, Disasternoon.
Considering making a limited 8" vinyl version with an exclusive B-side if the interest is there from you lot.

lyrics

I’m gonna do myself a favour
Extreme and long overdue
Gonna undergo a procedure
To rid my whole wide world of you
And nothing is all there is left to say
Cos you never listened much anyway
The colour of life with you all turned grey
And now I’ve got the gaslighters blues.

Well I’ve seen you down there from the window
Your Costa up there on the dash
Disinterest is part of the downfall old friend
And life passes you by in the trash
And nothing is all there is left to say
Cos you never listened much anyway
The colours of life with you all turned grey
And now I’ve got the gaslighters blues.

Oh, the surgeon smiles as the circus files
In a procession unto the grave
You succumb to the lies that they use to divide us
And spit them out like a good slave
We back in the playground in a new dark age
And there’s no turning back from the petulant pages
Of dirt you consume in your dull old cage
Boy, I’ve got the gaslighters blues.

about

Crayola Lectern Worthing, UK

Kicking around in the psychedelic foothills, whilst clawing for survival in the modern world.
Always working in opposites, melancholy is offset by irreverence and beauty by strangeness.
