about

Bit of a wordy song, I toyed a lot with different lyrical styles this year and this is the differentest of the lot I think.

lyrics

I'm passive and passionate
I'm hesitantly pleasant,
A pheasant eating peasant,
A Rembrandt remembering remnant of the past.

I rate the great dictators
By the furrows of their brow
For the day someone makes me
Tell them what to think they really ought to think.

Bow to me
Wow to me
I'm a literal God.
Bind me
Grind me
I'm lower than the sod.
Put me under the pedestal
I'm still standing on.

"I'm a loquacious entity"
I'm sure I heard you say,
It's an express exposure
To a life I'm not too sure you lead.

With pizzazz it's a piece of piss,
Being materialist,
Put your power in people,
Or animals, or anyone but me.

Bow to me
Wow to me
I'm a literal God.
Bind me
Grind me
I'm lower than the sod.
Put me under the pedestal
I'm still standing on.

You say that I'm something better than this
And I say that you are taking the piss
I have never been a part of the scene
At the least it's not from what I have seen.

I'm passive and passionate
I'm hesitantly pleasant,
A pheasant eating peasant,
A Remembrandts remembering remnant of the past.

"I'm a loquacious entity"
I'm sure I heard you say,
It's an express exposure
To a life I'm not too sure you lead.

Bow to me
Wow to me
I'm a literal God.
Bind me
Grind me
I'm lower than the sod.
Put me under the pedestal
I'm still standing on.

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.
