about

We recorded this as a 3 track teaser single for the forthcoming album. We also knew we wanted to record Parting Words professionally so that we could make a music video to complement it (still working on that.)

Album art by the very talented Anna!

about

The Red Pills Leeds, UK

The Red Pills took their name from the 1999 movie 'The Matrix.' In one scene, Keanu Reeves' character 'Neo' is presented with a choice of pills to ingest; a red pill or a blue pill. Each is a metaphor - taking the blue pill will allow Neo to continue to live a cosy, comfortable lie. Taking the red pill will allow him to wake up to the truth. ... more

Track Name: Parting Words
Smell the blood upon the wind, Grade and Powell made a kill
Stalked their prey and brought it down, in Coronation Street they found
A predator to pick the bones, they ridiculed and then disowned
Executive decisions trap, it’s TV wasteland, long way back

If we fight like animals we die like animals x2

There are worlds out there, where the sky is burning
And the sea’s asleep and the rivers dream
People made of smoke, cities made of song
Somewhere there’s danger, or injustice
Somewhere else, the tea’s getting cold

When we re-watch the end today, just like the youth club things have changed
We still enjoy but miss the glee, in childhood’s safe warm memories
The animals that killed our show, ripped from us our great hero
Despite old wounds from eager claws, we lost the battle, won the war

If we fight like animals we die like animals x2

There are worlds out there, where the sky is burning
And the sea’s asleep and the rivers dream
People made of smoke, cities made of song
Somewhere there’s danger, or injustice
Somewhere else, the tea’s getting cold

Come on Ace we’ve got work to do x4
Come on Ace we’ve got work to do-oo-oo-oo-ooooo
Track Name: Blue Space
Crush the spirit with officious gimmicks
Pray to your leaders for blessing and merit
Contact broken is dull placation
A fuzzy meaningless nothing workstation

There is safety in anonymity
Neuter all bonding capacity
Banned in favour of efficiency
Evolution sacrifices intimacy

Blue Space - fills our vision
Blue Space - total inhibition
Blue Space - kills interaction
Blue Space - social putrefaction

Vocal castration brings atmosphere death
Dissent subdued, a purge on outlets
Digression’s refuge, internalised fight
Distance and obstacles sanitised

Spark disconnected at your behest
Divide and conquer your proud epithet
Caging all lions, resigned to the circus
Friendship does not sell, hence it is surplus

CHOURS x2

Control. Control. Control. Control.
A prisoner speaks out of line – no parole
Control. Control. Control. Control.
Remote ignorance to stifle our souls, yeah.

These blue boards, a metaphor
Absence of life, dying inside
Track Name: Harriet's Got Herpes
I know a girl called Harriet
She’s loose with morals and regret
Watch out lads, when she gets leathered
Opens up her sleeve of wizard
Heard her cocktail of infections
Graced many unwary erections
Trails of betrayal never end
Humiliation is public revenge

Harriet’s got herpes, she’s looking to tease
Give her half a chance and she’ll give you t’disease
Harriet’s got herpes, she won’t be appeased
She’ll fuck another sucker, “here’s your S.T.D.” Hey!

Harriet conceals her guilt
With darkness and an unwashed quilt
Pulling chumps in seedy bars
Has served her pretty well thus far
So men of ill repute surround her
Most itch after their encounter
Down at the doc’s a quick diagnosis
“You’ve got herpes, crabs and syphilis”

Harriet’s got herpes, she’s looking to tease
Give her half a chance and she’ll give you t’disease
Harriet’s got herpes, she won’t be appeased
She’ll fuck another sucker, “here’s your S.T.D.” Hey!

Dish it out girl, dish it out
We know your dirty secret
Hang about girl, hang about
You can fucking keep it

Harriet’s got herpes, she’s looking to tease
Give her half a chance and she’ll give you t’disease
Harriet’s got herpes, she won’t be appeased
She’ll fuck another sucker, “here’s your S.T.D.” Hey!

Repeat chorus
