about

My name is Phil Redmon. This summer, I wrote and recorded 35 songs as fast and as freely as I could. The end game wasn't important, I had no target audience in mind. I needed to conquer the problem of self-editing & beat off creative lock-up.

What came out is two heaping handfuls of singalong hooks, songs you can yell along with on the 2nd listen. Some turds shine brighter than others, but in the spirit of the project, they are all included, sequenced in the order they were written, each a reaction to the one prior.

Thanks for listening, I hope you enjoy it.
-Phil

under a pile of detritus

and was about somethin' else (a what, a what)
ok it wasn't this at all

this scene right here, it looks familiar

that guy i know he don't survive (oh yes he does)
oh right the treasure chest's a fake (now what you talkin')

Track Name: Wildest Creatures
wild creatures live in the wild
tame creatures sleep indoors
horned rattlesnakes

and let the cat out
or let the cat in

what kind of creature reads a book (wild creature)
which kind of creature is you (we all wild creatures)
what kind of creature digs a hole (wildest creature)
what kind of creature is you

exotic beasts will walk away (they walk away)
a pretty pet will stay the same
a larger problem presented by the autumn
and even giant monsters gotta hibernate

what kind of creature reads a book (wildest creature)
what kind of creature is you (we all wild creatures)
whichkind of creature digs a hole (wildest creature)
what kind of creature is you
Track Name: Label Lover
faster than fashion, your name brand ration
a fascist for fashion, your brand name irrational

cookin' up the books for the name upon your label
sweat day and night for the food on the table

slimming stripes and polka riots
gingham dogtooth pleats & rayon
fibers thread count button up stitch up
thread count threat count choc-u-later
corset force it hems and buckles
macreme and beads and bangles
spangle strangle threat count
fashionista

label lover
Track Name: You Won't Be Lost
when you got a compass you won't be lost
you'll be alive

shippin' at sea, just boatin' around to wherever
ridin' the waves to the horizon, maybe look at an island
float around all day, but when it's time for heading home
i check my east, my south and my west
for directions bringing me to the zone

i won't be lost, i'll be alive
when i got a compass with me

you won't be lost, you'll be alive
when you got a compass with you

you won't be lost
Track Name: Cookie Solution
got a grin for a thin mint, split for a choco chip
run over your samoa, goon for a macaroon
snappin' for the ginger, sandin' for pecans yeah
peelin' for an oatmeal, in the gutter with the butter

it's not a cookie problem, it's a cookie solution

lookit them m&m, take the head off a gingerman
bite the knuckles off a ladyfinger, snicker for a doodle
scream for a custard cream, settle for a fortune
do no wrong with a tagalong, oreo, biscotti, chips ahoy, whatever baby

it's not a cookie problem, it's a cookie solution
Track Name: Ichabod, No
my phantom allergies are actin' up
my equine sensitivities are risin' off the charts

in the distance the hooves are pounding
those weeping willows, that gourd of vengeance
ichabod, no, your friends won't listen
but i believe you, oh how i believe

is it just the man, or is the horse undead
how does that story go, how does it start and end

head of a flaming jack-o-lantern
Track Name: Medical Mouse
gotta put your faith in medical mouse

it only works if you believe
it only heals if you devote yourself completely
all of your symptoms will fade into the recesses of memory
if only you accept his healing love into your heart

and it will perform all health related miracles
please only use as directed
for serious side effects have been known to
devastate one's physiology

gotta put your faith in medical mouse
Track Name: That Noise Again
the fridge is making that noise again

Track Name: Get X Out
get X out

they told their friends, they're making signs
you know they're rolling up in caravans (so excited)
ready to scream, ready to yell
already callin' their allowance in (to vote about it)
using the power of eviction hour
shouting up and over the host
it ain't about who's the brain or entertain
it's them that rub 'em wrong the most

get X out

they told their friends and the tfriends of their friends
it's a friday night tradition (so excited)
making their way out to elstree
on a paranoia missile mission (to shout about it)
using the power of eviction hour
shouting up and over the host
it ain't about who's the brain or entertain
it's them that rub 'em wrong the most

get X out
Track Name: Animal Crimes
flipping through leads, rooting' through clues
always something new to do
badger up a witness, interrogate a raccoon
puzzling the pieces too

they're not gonna solve themselves
they're not gonna stop themselves

paw print the forest, ask every owl
maybe go undercover
posing as a loris, stickin' to my story
careful not to tamper with the evidence

they're not gonna solve themselves
they're not gonna stop themselves

beat by beat, line by line
solving all the animal, animal crimes
Track Name: Oh, Angela
angela, this is really happening
this is not a dream, this is not your nightmare

oh angela, this world is dangerous
it's a world of levers, a world of hallways to nowhere
look at the face of your friend
this is your home but not really your home
open your mouth to scream but your scream is silent
you're also falling

angela, this is really happening
this is not a dream, this is not your nightmare

angela, it wasn't really happening
it was just a dream, it was just your nightmare
and you're waking up
Track Name: Laughing In The Face
arms reach or further if you can make it
time's time, and the measure is illusory
foregone as conclusions ever operate
file for extension, but delay you won't certainly

laughing in the face of it

your friends and enemies and employers
strangers and animals, all lined up for oblivion
it's kind of lame so we try not to think of it
lsmile and a wink at it, laugh in the face of it

laughing in the face of it
Track Name: Keep It Tuffin'
look at that road, gotta let it rise to meet you honey

Track Name: Wallpuncher

'cause i'm a wallpuncher
not a head or a face or a lady or a fella
no i'm a wallpuncher

i'm not an animal
don't wanna fight to solve my problem
don't even really wanna solve my problem
but i gotta let it out

there's no benefit
when i flex my fists like an idiot
put 'em in the gypsum a little bit
and in a minute
i'll regret it

settle down, settle down, you know i gotta settle down
i'm a wallpuncher
i get mad, i get mad, i get madder than mad
'cause i'm a wallpuncher
keep cool, gotta keep cool gotta keep cool
'cause i'm a wallpuncher
not a head or a face or a lady or a fella
no i'm a wallpuncher

Track Name: See 'Em Live
see 'em live
you gotta see them live

cleaning up, parking the car
waiting in line, order a drink
looking around and waiting for somethin' live to happen
suffer a fool, jockey for sightlines
holding your ground if it gets too real
fix on the stage, when it all goes dark and loud it's golden

see 'em live
you gotta see them live
Track Name: Bat Man Mask

in my body
in my blood
in my veins
in my mouth
in my face
Track Name: Cola Runners
cola runners, runnin' over the border

we need that sweet and syrupy brown, we get it delivered
via subterfuge to our town
smuggled and labelled as machine cleaner
we can't dismiss our thirst just 'cause they claim it's illegal
the man says "no brown pop" we don't stop
we drink it secretly in basements and in shadows
paper bags on the street, our team of renegades
will cross the border loaded down
with a load of brown

cola runners, over the border
cola runners

how 'bout you gimme the lake (oh no)

Track Name: Fuel For The Fire
fuel for the fire

fuel for the fire

wood over a major scale

fuel for the fire
