about

Mind Canary Perth, Australia

At the dawn of time a large bearded man placed an egg in the blackness. Upon hatching, the giant yellow bird did summon forth a guitar, and did play into existence the great symphony of life. After composing all that is and ever will be the canary did lay to rest in the belly of the earth. Now! Arisen and incarnated the canary begins the next stage in the quest for metaphysical self-actualization. ... more

Track Name: Wreckage
In the wreckage of my mind
Everything's so hard to find
I know I left an empty space
But you've got to know your place

Love I only make you happy
Don't you know I'm always with you
Love you know I'm always with you

If you want to see her face
If you want to know her name
I loved you but I make a mess
And you've got to know your friends

Love I only make you happy
Don't you know I'm always with you
Love you know I'm always happy
Don't you know I'm always with you
Track Name: Junk Girl
Restaurants new slob attire
Veins in your arms are like tendrils and wires
I saw you down by the arcade
Searching the blue light in hopes of a vein

Some Jezebel stole all your clothes
So you hitchhiked your bare arse back to your home
But your daddy's grown brutish devoid
Burned all your records now you don't sing no more

Oh, where do you go?
When I leave to chase the wolves time
Oh, where do you go?
When I chase away the wolves time

Adjuncting door to door sales
A pleaching of your mind's embrangled junk vines
You sold me soap I asked your name
You said with a kiss that it's old and the same

I asked where's a good place to drown?
You opened your arms and released your cold hound
If I could erase all the sin
I need a cool bar I can dig jazz and smoke in

Oh, where do you go?
When I leave to chase the wolves time
Oh, where do you go?
When I chase away the wolves time

Holes in your arms again, holes that you made
Candles and tambourines back to your place
Track Name: Aubergine Road
Yesterday's over you know
The one that got away
When they told her what more could you say?
You were in love with this girl
The one they led away
To enclose her
Oh impotent rage

Oh, hard words in your mouth
I flew over your rose petal couch
To bring you pictures of things
You hold diamond rings

Yesterday's over you know
The one that got away
When they told her what more could you say?
You were in love with this girl
The one they led away
To the closure of infinite pain

Oh, hard words in your mouth
I flew over your rose petal gun metal couch
To bring you pictures of things
You hold diamond rings

And you were the loneliest soldier
The light on your shoulder went out
You don't know what they told her
The lies that they sold her about it all
You came home from the war
All the way to her door to be told to go
Turned you out in the cold
On the old fashioned aubergine road

Yesterday's over you know
The one that got away
When they told her what more could you say?
Track Name: Gypsy Boy
Thought I was a gypsy boy
I was just a sickness breeding
You were but a poor tormented clown

I walked into the cancer ward
I was all the sickness breathing
Call me when the acid kicks in
You were in the territory cleaning

I met you in a ghostly town
You were my dishevelled starlet
I am but a poor lamented freak

Don't you know that starlets drown?
I was all germinating
Call me when the acid kicks in
You were in the bathtub screaming

Don't you go
I haven't got anybody else to show
Please don't stay
I haven't got anything positive to say
Don't you know?
I never want to be alone

Murphy was the magnet child
I was just a southern accent
You are now a poor dishevelled freak

I laughed when the passionfruit died
I pull myself up to the magnet
Don't you know that starlet's high?
I was in the gypsy convent

Don't you go
I haven't got anybody else to show
Please don't stay
I haven't got anything positive to say
Don't you know?
I never want to be alone
Track Name: Jukebox by the Bay
Wrench your finger to the seam
Pack an inward fastening
Almost every word you say
Will feed my jukebox night and day

Paint your windowsill between
Misery and happiness
Tell me how long will you stay
In your jukebox by the bay?

As I tell you so between
Mystery and happening
Almost every word you say
Will feed my jukebox night and day

Paint your windowsill between
Misery and happiness
Tell me how long will you stay
In your jukebox by the bay?
Track Name: Greyskull
I am Ava's seizure
Buried by the drone
Errant lost your temper
Gangster Al Capone

I am bows and arrows
I am older than
You don't need a camera
You've got famous friends

Lights in both sides at hazard hall
Whites of my eyes this hella of a day

This hallway's filled with liars
You went into the greyskull tower in my mind

Lights in both sides at hazard hall
Whites of my eyes this hella of a day

Don't matter at all
Don't matter and the lies don't matter
And the lies don't matter anyway

My Holly weather
My Holly we're the same
You went into the greyskull tower in my brain

My Vander weather
My Vander we're of ilk
You came into the wild west shotgun on a hill

Lights in both sides at hazard hall
Whites of my eyes this hella of a day
