Ook and the Elephant Bolton, UK

Ook, ook, ook
Say it fast, say it whispery and menacing
Say it as slow as you can.
Your weary ear needs a rest. Everybody clangs so hard.

Go make potions in the back yard. Put some silence in your tunes. Slow them down. Let them breathe. They’ll thank you, and then fly away from you, smiling

Track Name: Bootleg Crawl
Bootleg Crawl

His false teeth flew when the wild child hit him

The black dog barked as the sun was setting

Streetlamp told of another time

Where people seethed and people cried

Silvery moon

What can you do

Shed light for the fools

Licking whisky off the ground

You hear that shattered sound

Concrete jungle, what a mess

You cut your tongue on shattered glass

Crazy old bootleg crawl

Silvery moon

What can you do

Shed light for the fools

Who plays those changes?

Who plays those changes

Jackie was six and Jackie was safe

Jackie was six and Jackie was safe

Jackie was six and Jackie was safe

Jackie was six and Jackie was safe

Silvery moon

What can you do

Shed light for the fools
Track Name: Gaps
There’s a house by the road

Standing by itself

There’s a tree there and a man there

And he looks a lot like you

See your friends in this place

Turning back the time

Face stick and your face

Is hard to leave behind

So it goes

Everybody’s voices

Rise and flow

Singing out for you

Tell the night

Tell the night

So we sing a thousand songs

You knew that’s what we’d do

But what of those whose

Words get stuck and

Tangled up in you

Tell the night

That you are not able to fight

And we’ll all raise a glass to the gaps in class

And we’ll drink to what’s not right

So it goes

Everybody’s voices

Rise and flow

Singing out for you

Tell the night

Tell the night

You know you’ve got to stand tall

You know you’ve got to stand strong

And there’s no one to say it as there’s no one around

You were telling us then

What you are telling us now

You were telling us all (x4)
Track Name: Part Dame
Takes to the streets

Part-Dame

Heels on his feet, hair on his chest

Lipstick on his teeth, hat on his head

Part-Dame

Relishing the freedom, the feeling, the freedom, the feeling, the freedom

Walking in the dark as it feels like freedom

Walking in the dark as it feels like freedom

Walking in the dark as it feels like freedom

Through painted eyes, the world unfurls and takes you by surprise

You smile and let it take you

You smile and let it take you

You smile and let it take you

Watch them watch you

Through painted eyes, the world unfurls and takes you by surprise

You smile and let it take you

You smile and let it take you

You smile and let it take you

Watch them watch you
Track Name: Young Bone
Four feet on the wall

Four feet on the wall

One rolls a cigarette and lights

Sharing a bottle of, whatever you like

Four feet on the ground

Four feet on the ground

You scream for the comfort of sound

You scream for the comfort of sound

Lay down

Lay down

Lay

Young bone on stone

Young bone on stone

Some fall fast and some fall free oh

Some fall fast and some fall free

Lay down

Lay down,

Lay
