about

Kill City: Switchblade is a cohesive collection of visceral rock songs underpinned by lyrical themes dealing with a variety of characters in the dystopian 'Kill City'. This common thread is maintained throughout, and further explored in the sister EP 'Kill City: Renegades', due in 2016.

Track Name: Switchblade Renegades
Black lungs, poisoned blood, packing alleys and doing it tough
Lost souls struggle for life, emancipated, walking the night
death row, black and cold, trading all they've got for cold
downtown, a murder for art, and the discipline to pull it apart

What you see when you really take a look around, is a city going to fall and destroying it all

Rays break an ominous sku, "today would be a good day to die"
destined to carry on, "it seems all hope is gone"
cracked walls, a city will fall, "the begining of the end of it all"
Act though, lacking the know, "rack it and attack it, and go!"

What you see when you really take a look around, is a city going to fall and destroying it all

Execute a revolution from the underground
another crooked corporation we could do without
wave your hands to fan the flames, then put the fire out
rise above, spread the word, sow the seeds of doubt

Dread and menace on the faces of those looking down
another batch of good advice that they could do without
wave your hands to fan the flames, then put the fire out
they'll take the crown, and spill the blood over the battle ground

Heavy hands raise their weapons to the ready as a child pulls a pin from a hand grenade
backup kids, with their rifles holding steady, detonated the bombs, "you get as good as you gave"
they fought and they won, just as the morning sun pierced through the blackened fog,
and then they congregated as one, broke the arms of their enemies and sent them on their way
Track Name: I'm Lost, but Well Travelled
This town’s a massive black hole
A gaping chasm that’ll steal your soul
Wish it was good to be back
It might be straight but it’s a narrow track

I'm old, i'm shattered,
I'm lost, but well traveled

Every city's the same
You’ll move right in and then you’ll complain
It's either too hot in the sun
or cold and lonely like the only ones

Where is the line that you're coming from
You told me so many times
What was the line that you told me
Something ‘bout borrowed time?

'Cause I'm old, i'm shattered
I'm lost, but well traveled

'Cause I'm old, i'm shattered
I am lost, but well traveled
I'm cold, i'm rattled
I am lost, but well traveled
Track Name: Known Better (Ep Edition)
I got pulled over leaving Lefty's, man I was done
The god's of alcohol were smiling on a hopeless son
I got rear ended by red neck drunkard in his truck
They apprehended him, that sucka, he was out of luck

Thought I knew it, but I didn’t know, I should have know better
Give myself another year to go and get myself together,
Yeah!

I was a Jonesin’ and a shakin’, every muscle aches
My nerves erupted and another sleeping giant waked
bbbbbrrrrrrr (not sure how to write this) juk
You know I’ve felt this every day & night since she's gone

Thought I knew it, but I didn’t know, I should have know better
I think I'll give myself another year to get myself together,


Get me outta the hole
I Jammed my money in the pokies and the rest was alcohol
Get it under control boy
I climbed a mountain of white
And then I nearly lost my soul
Going out with a bang
I really need to leave, but then, I kinda like it here
Oh I’m feeling the pang
And if it doesn’t leave me soon, well then, I’ll have to disappear

Wooh!
Thought I knew it but I didn’t know I should have known better
Give myself a couple of years to go and get myself together
Thought I blew it, but I didn’t, though I should have known better
Give myself a couple of years to go and get myself together
Get me together, get me together, get me together
Track Name: Raygun
Wanted fun, she got a gun, she got a raygun
She’s eagle eyed that girl can shoot, shoot
Broken smile, bloodied teeth over the floor tiles
She’ll stitch you up and then she’ll put in the boot

On file, got her standing side profile
Shoot, shoot, she’s still smiling
Let her go, 'cause all you’ve got to show is
A lack of evidence to go prosecute


Another typical insult, that’s been doing you so much harm
Another full frontal assault, it’s the killing that keeps her warm

Understand, she met a man, he was a bad man
She threw his body down the chute, chute
Ridding waste, dumping bodies in haste
Eradicate you while she’s looking so cute


Another typical insult, that’s been doing you so much harm
Another full frontal assault, it’s the killing that keeps her warm
Another typical insult, that be doing you so much harm
Another full frontal assault, another letter, let, let her


The pariah, eyes blazing with a cold fire
She’s breaking out, so don’t you even try to hold her
Gun for hire, easing tensions like a live wire
She’s on a mission, it’s all resolute


Her body is a weapon
(she) Had to kill so many, for a lesson
(she) Won’t leave until it feels like home
'Till the parasites are dead and gone
Hope in the total absence of god
Walking streets with the blood that’ll never wash
(she'll) Keep marching, with her head and her gun
She wont sleep, till she’s dead
Track Name: Galactic
Why don't you let me into your mind?
Your thoughts are playing hard to find
Your soul is stormy weather
Gonna tie yourself down honey get yourself together now
Why won't you let me into your heart?
I came here to make a new start
My life would be much better
I've stated my case but we’ll never be together now

Well if you're lying then I hope that you mean it
'Cause the truth has hurt too many times
You might be blind, but I hope that you'll see it
One day in time


I’ve been watching from afar
Deep cuts, healing into scars
Love that’s interstellar
I’m Gonna fix my ship gonna get myself together
I hope you're coming with me soon
Way past the dark side of the moon
All my ties are severed , yeah I burnt my bridges when I pulled the fucking lever down

Well if you're lying then I hope that you mean it
'Cause the truth has hurt too many times
You might be blind, but I hope that you'll see it
One day in time

Well if you're lying then I hope that you mean it
'Cause the truth has hurt too many times
You might be blind, but I hope that you'll see it
One day in time
