about

The vast majority of this was recorded in the first week on November 2008. The rest of it over the next two years.

Chemistry is one of those songs that exceeded our expectations.

New Opportunist features again the wonderful Clare Francis on backing vocals

New Opportunist lyrics were written, by Red Star Radio guitarist Guy Lawson.

21st CSM is a reworking of the old Hair Thieves tune, 21st Century Schzoid Man. No, Rollasoc was unaware of the King Crimson song when he wrote it.

Reverie Part 2. Yes there is a part 1. We might even finish it at some point.

Track Name: Chemistry
The Chemistry
Music I Packman, Lyrics Chris Rollason, I Packman

Waiting for a queue that never comes
(Standing) in the line of least resistance
Hard counter to the window on my soul, it says
position closed
it marks the pass of every moment

The Chemistry of dying
Colours Changing over time
My future shrinks,
my past is growing
it's leaving me behind

The fabric fades, old colours melt away
Captures all our days, escape forgotton
The world is rushing at you, faster than the
naked eye can see
We close our eyes or look away

The Chemistry of dying
Colours Changing over time
My future shrinks,
my past is growing
it's leaving me behind
If nothing last forever
what's the point in going on
at least I have found the wisdom
of where I was wrong

Aching void, ommisions from my soul
watching people make the same mistakes
So I write a list of all the things
the things I should have done
I wasted time on being young
Track Name: New Opportunist
New Opportunist
Music C Rollason, I Packman. Lyrics Guy Lawton

I thought I'd never learn
till my dying day
The art of getting my own sweet way
'Cos around these parts, arts a dirty word
And words make all the difference
all the difference in the world

He couldn't take a hint
So I'm talking with my fists
I'm making a point to the New Opportunist

I don't suffer fools
Especially tonight
I'm alcohol fueled and about to ignite
He floated into town, like wind blown litter
Now he's floating face down at a bend in the river

I can predict, he won't be missed
'Cos no one saw the New Opportunist

So what if tomorrow
Brings unusual weather
I've done all I can to hold us together
There's all you can drink at the wedding reception
And the cops help themselves to another deception

If you wanna leave let me tell you this
You'd better give my love to the New Opportunist
Track Name: 21st CSM
21st CSM
Music and Lyrics C Rollason.

Always Argued my limitations
Never argued against my fears
Always questioned my way of thinking
Never looked ahead, ahead with hope

Always restless and impatient
Never rode the waves of delight
Always worry too much about nothing
Never relaxed, nor had some fun

And I'm turning into the thing I hate the most
High ideals, but I'm not even close
I seem complete, but I'm thinking that I'm broken
Turning into the 21st Century Schizoid man

Always bottled up my emotions
Never held back all the rage
Always leaving too much unspoken
Never edgy, too highly strung

And I never had fun as a child
Nervous wreck, behind my smile
Happy go lucky or so they say
Feel inside like I'm the living dead
Hiding secrets, hiding lies
Tortured soul, crimson disguise
Torn between my wants and needs
I bare this soul for you to need
