about

There is a rather fantastic artist around Dunedin (who not coincidentally has done the album art for this album) and one particular piece of his art I have always taken a liking to is generally called "Notes". This piece prominently features the phrase "Oh God I Am Ready" which I adore, so, with permission, I borrowed that phrase to write this song.

lyrics

You're so woven in the folds of my brain
And I can't say "get out" again.
Oh God I am ready
To call it a day.

My impulses are magnetised
To be caught behind your eyes.
Oh God I am ready
To call it a day.

You are the reason I've been looking for,
You are the reason I keep wanting more,
I have no answers you do not hold,
Oh my God I'm not ready at all.

You're so woven in the folds of my brain
And I can't say "get out" again.
Oh God I am ready
To call it a day.

You are the reason I keep looking for,
You are the reason I keep wanting more,
I have no answers you do not hold,
Oh my God I'm not ready at all.

I've got to be here for you
I know it's true.
Don't fall through.

You are the reason I keep looking for,
You are the reason I keep wanting more,
I have no answers you do not hold,
Oh my God I'm not ready at all.

about

Barabajagal Dunedin, New Zealand

Barabajagal are a band who make music.

It's pretty ok stuff really.

It's rooted in psychedelia but incorporates so many genres that it doesn't really seem too definable. But it's ok with that.

Despite being a kiwi band the songwriter is actually rather English, so whenever he sings you'd be hard pressed to go "wow, those kiwis huh". Still, New Zealand-ish.

Pronounced Bah-Rabba-Jaggle.
