about

7 years in the making, could there finally be a new album in the pipeline?

For now here are 2 new 'demos' recorded by Joe in isolation over Easter. Maybe they'll be re-recorded, maybe they won't. Maybe they'll be on the album, maybe they won't. So fresh you can still smell the warm valves on the AC30.

Track Name: I Hate Your Job
Yes sir, no sir, here's the go
I've filled 3 bags of crap I know
Year in, year out, walking on coals
The only thing sold is my old soul
For 15 hours my shirt's not clean
The sweat won't dry and I'm too tired to dream

I know I can escape but there's nowhere to hide
Just punch me out, give me back my life

How did it get from right to wrong
Grinding it down to the bone so long
Blister from the ball and chain won't bleed
The eyes hurt so bad they can't see
That even the midnight oil runs dry
Just running in the dark right back to the start

I know I can escape but there's nowhere to hide
I hate your job, give me back my life

The losers are shaking
And I see I'm faking it
The world keeps turning
And I'm still yearning
For some way out

I hate your job

Track Name: Escape
It's 7am on the factory floor
It's starts over again and am already sore
From the days and the nights and the weeks I can't be with you.

I don't know what I should believe anymore
I can't seem to leave when I walk out the door
Cut me loose, it could be heaven or this could be hell

Tell me how to get through
Give me hope, screw it all, there's gotta be a way

I just need inspiration and a spade
To dig my way out and escape
To some place where we can start over again

I flick out my smoke 'cos there's no time to dream
Of the sand and the sea
I wake up and I'm still at the wheel

How can I be numb
To all of the pain
You're picking the lock and I'm fading away

Tell me how to get through
Give me hope, screw it all, there's gotta be a way

I just need inspiration and a spade
To dig my way out and escape
To some place where we can start over again

Are you scared of tomorrow cos' I'm not
Willing to carry this junk we've got
Just find my hand there must be a way

Give me hope, screw it all, I will find away
Give me hope, they can screw it all, I will find away
