Gemstone Heist – Sex Tape lyrics

Bring your wheelchair to the party
Fuck you to the girls who say you’re not a hotty,
Made your own life from the metal,
Step back a-while, tell ‘em to settle.

Let’s make a sex tape,
Let’s just forget,
Let’s put a face to all those words called regret,
Run like a stalker,
Fight like a bitch,
Stand your fucking ground cos you’re daddy ain’t rich.

Don’t try to buy with a dollar,
A five percent rise,
Suits were loud on the holler,
The same old shit we’ve heard before,
Taking Zoflot just to get out the door.

Let’s make a sex tape,
Let’s just forget,
Let’s put a face to all those words called regret,
Run like a stalker,
Fight like a bitch,
Stand your fucking ground cos you’re daddy ain’t rich.

Making laws to control this love,
Step back, call the Feds,
Running through Castro like Craig,
Your wife sits waiting by the phone,
One more drink says you’re not coming home.

 

Gemstone Heist – Fatally Wounded lyrics

Fatally wounded – that’s how you left me
Before you started – sprung a spring
And hit the target – you pulled the pin now
Get me started..
Get me started..

How many chances do you give?
While you’ve got the
Face on down the pub
The one that says
You’ll try your luck

Fatally wounded – that’s how you left me
Before you started – sprung a spring
And hit the target – you pulled the pin now
Get me started..
Get me started..

I try to learn to hate your eyes
The place that draws
Them to your lies
Your green lured bait
It sealed my fate

Fatally wounded – that’s how you left me
Before you started – sprung a spring
And hit the target – you pulled the pin now
Get me started..
Get me started..

Small clues now all fit together
Of the countdown
To your departure
Booked in first class
Thoughts fading fast

Fatally wounded – that’s how you left me
Before you started – sprung a spring
And hit the target – you pulled the pin now
Get me started..
Get me started..

 

Four thousand miles and four songs

As two song writers who live over 4,000 miles apart (Ashley in Kentucky and myself in Liverpool) – it can sometimes be difficult to write songs together. Despite the advantages of email, Skype and the intahwebs and general, there is no substitute  to practising and recording together.

So I was most grateful to Ashley for making the journey, enduring customs, an overly zealous drunk plane passenger and the sleepless no-man’s land that is international travel. We managed to record four news songs which we plan to release and upload soon. I need to produce and master the tracks now, but am glad to be working on some new material.

Ride on Mersey Ferry
Actually on the Mersey Ferry. Although you prob wouldn’t know it – you’ll have to imagine the Liver Buildings (they are there somewhere!)

We did take a break to do some touristy things in Liverpool, (living here all the time, you forget how many amazing things there are here to do.) So we had a ride on the Mersey Ferry, enjoyed the parks and enjoyed many copious dinners out. Ashley felt particularly at home at Buffalo Jacks.

We will upload the new songs soon, the first one being ‘Fatally Wounded.’
