Business And Work
Yellow Pages!© Pat Fish 1996
I've been here for ages, deep in the words of the Ancient Sages,
Avoiding the gaze of the pissed teenagers, trying to get through to the man with the pager.
Deep undercover on a mission to the people: ever catch yourself wishing for the Facts,
the facts that'll put you on the track of the messages they get from the satellite dish?
It's like the Pyramids of Ancient Egypt - you can see it, but you'll never believe it.
Dig a little deeper you will find Fortune favours the well-prepared mind
Lost in a world of vibration, Church of the Aquatic Sound Foundation
Bringing research as they dig in the dirt, continually monitored... by experts.
- And as the light begins to fail, and as you start to feel the cold,
You see the future and it's not what you've been told
Oh, get out and walk! Look at the state of you!
It's coming apart, et je m'en fous.Je m'en fous: literally I fuck myself of it.
Actually used all the time in quite polite French to mean It means nothing to me.
Bad cells in the nation's bloodstream, moving through the system, clinging onto one dream
Shared as it all falls apart. Only the ignorant will want a fresh start.
Another word from the Ancient Sages: you don't keep a tiger in a ten-foot cage,
It's wrong. Now it's time to get along, little dogies, get along, sing your song:
- JUSTICE AND SEMTEX, BUSINESS AND WORK (Got to try a little harder)
REPTILES AND INSECTS, BUSINESS AND WORK (Get along, get along)
A NICE DISTINCTION: BUSINESS AND WORK (Got to push a little harder)
CHAOS, EXTINCTION, BUSINESS AND WORK (Get it on!)
Buy These Records
This inaugural disk is decidedly un-Butcheresque, with a keyboard-heavy attack of quasi-techno rhythms. Pat was known to dabble in reverb and noise, but the results were moody, melancholy textures, quite unlike the flash of This is Sumo.
