about

Bit of a sad sack, this one, left on the killing floor during the "Desolation" sessions. We had to pick two of the three early on and this is the one we discarded. The keepers; "Through My Eyes" and "Master Of The Zoo" appear on both "Lizard" and Desolation Sound Volume III. This song didn't end up on "Until Now" either. No wonder you'll find it here .. in the Curios section. A wonderful time, a wonderful band .. everybody happy and healthy .. If you own the "Until Now" mixbook you'll know exactly what I mean .. xoRJ

lyrics

Another little urchin in the chain of life
Sold your story to me
A rage of red turned to blinding white
It only gets stranger in dreams -

You’re a brat on a hot tin roof - baby
You’ll get what’s coming to you - yeah
Go find some sanctuary underground
Or you’ll pay for a heart battered black and blue

Miss runaway
You’ve been a bad little girl from the start
Miss runaway
You’d better cover your tracks if you’re smart -
Oh yeah ..

You looked so sweet while you were telling me lies
You gave me the works -
Ran the name on the tip of my tongue .. honey
All we could come up with was dirt

You’re a brat on a hot tin roof - baby
You’ll get what’s coming to you - yeah
So find some sanctuary underground
Or you’ll pay for a heart battered black and blue
You’ll get what’s coming to you ..

Miss runaway
You’ve been a bad little girl from the start
Miss runaway
You’d better cover your tracks if you’re smart -

Miss runaway
You’ve been a bad little girl from the start
Miss runaway
You’d better .. oh .. baby ..

SPOKEN:
So the story goes on down the line
Electric blue fire on the wire
Steal my heart - baby .. tug at my sleeve
You never did cool my desire
You looked so sweet while you were telling me lies
You gave me the works
Ran your name on the tip of my tongue
Here’s what I heard ..

You’re a brat on a hot tin roof - baby
You’ll get what’s coming to you - yeah
So find some sanctuary underground
Or you’ll pay for a heart battered black and blue
You’ll get what’s coming to you ..

Miss runaway
You’ve been a bad little girl from the start
Miss runaway
You’d better cover your tracks if you’re smart -

Miss runaway
You’ve been a bad little girl from the start
Miss runaway
You’d better - you’d better ..
You better run away .. oh ..

about

Robert James Wetaskiwin, Alberta

Currently calling Wetaskiwin, Canada home, Robert has just released his 4th CD, "Satyr's Day Parade". Saturn's a bit of a taskmaster and the upcoming release "Kizza Me Now" is moving along at breakneck speed. The rough mixes are changing as he prepares the songs for a live setting. Although the upcoming release is a ten song affair, all the songs will get a make-over. Make-over .. mix-over. xoRJ ... more
