THE LAD THAT TIME FORGOT Smiling green in the twilight Leather wings hide a heavy heart The lad that time forgot The lad that time forgot And Heaven's rainbowed tears surround him Heaven's rainbowed tears The lad that time forgot The lad that time forgot Precious blood on pale parchment Compass points to solar plexus And Heaven's rainbowed tears surround him Heaven's rainbowed tears The lad that time forgot The lad that time forgot Standing still in the gloaming As the merciless heroes pass Speaking truth unto no one Sighing softly to the sky And Heaven's rainbowed tears surround him Heaven's rainbowed tears The lad that time forgot The lad that time forgot The lad that time forgot Watching the merciless heroes pass Heaven's rainbowed tears surround him Heaven's rainbowed tears surround him Heaven's rainbowed tears surround him Heaven's rainbowed tears

INCANDESCENT ARTILLERY You must excuse me I'm not used to being taken seriously And ideas bore me And my feet are getting itchy Come soar with me So the whorl is beneath we And we are wild and free Incandescent artillery Eyes still open but empty And just a spark of empathy But I cant take it seriously And my feet are getting itchy Come soar with us As like bees we do buzz' Cos we are wild and free Incandescent artillery The garage just called me Said my vehicle is ready Ready today so we must away Because my feet are getting itchy Come soar with we' Cos we are wild and free And this world is beneath me Incandescent artillery This world is beneath me Incandescent artillery This world is beneath we Incandescent artillery

Get Bramah 04:20
GET BRAMAH They say he's hiding out with a farmer Find me the deserter It's all about stolen valour Just throw him in the back of the Land Rover Throw him in the slammer Get Bramah! He's working for the BBC He no longer cares for me His remaining time is mine He is the crime Get Bramah Break his fingers - smash his guitar Get Bramah! I've suffered him long enough We all know who wrote this stuff It's your responsibility He's no divinity Get Bramah Throw him in the slammer - hit him with a hammer Get Bramah! He's hiding out on the moors In a stone shield with no doors He gets all his warmth from sheep He knows his life is cheap Get Bramah Before he escapes to the Bahamas Get Bramah! His days of glory are gone He really thought he was someone I just need a definite confirmation Of his spirits final cessation Get Bramah Hit him with a hammer - in the back of the Land Rover Get me Bramah! Everything he claims is mine I disavow and decline I must retrieve and refine No more questions about the charmer Take him swimming with piranhas Just get Bramah!

Deep State 03:05
DEEP STATE 'Some rise by sin and some by virtue fall' Tiny said 'the Earth is flat' Hit his teacher with a cricket bat Now he hides in the woods and eats his meat raw While teacher sucks her soup through a drinking straw She's in a deep vegetative state - deep state Now I am a man I don't give a damn About the tragedy and the trash About the triumph and the cash I'm in a deep state Words are treasure - words are trash Words are treasure - words are trash Words are treasure - words are trash Measure for measure - the dye is cast A sniper with a mic Signals a kid on a bike See my aura is too bright Must I stand and fight A woman on the intercom All chained up like a unicorn Still she is a powerful pawn Of the deep state Now I am a man I don't give a damn About the truthers and the beat they bash About the fakers and the big backlash Deep state Words are treasure - words are trash Words are treasure - words are trash Words are treasure - words are trash Measure for measure - the dye is cast Words are treasure - words are trash Words are treasure - words are trash Words are treasure - words are trash In a deep state

Beached 05:22
BEACHED I'm beached washed up and beat But the beetle in my shirt don't seem disturbed Yeah beached washed up and beat But the stone inside my shoe still speaks the truth Yeah beached washed up and beat I'm beat washed up and beached A big wave washed over me Now I'm all washed up and beat can't you see? Yeah, beached washed up and beat But the soul inside my suit is resolute Yeah beached washed up and beat Beached Oh beached Beat washed up and beat But the cocktail in my hand just tastes like sand Oh beached washed up and beat But the stone inside my suit is resolute Beached washed up and beat Beat washed up and beached Beached washed up and beached A big wave washed over me And the cocktail in my hand just tastes like sand I'm beached washed up and beat But the beetle in my shirt don't seem disturbed Beached Yeah beached washed up and beat A big wave washed over me And the cocktail in my hand just tastes like sand Beached washed up and beached And the soul inside my suit is resolute I'm beached washed up and beat Yeah beat washed up and beached A big wave washed over me Now I'm all washed up and beat it's plain to see A big wave washed over me Now the cocktail in my hand just tastes like sand Beached washed up and beat I'm beached washed up and beat Oh beached washed up and beat And the song inside my shoe still speaks the truth I'm beached washed up and beached

LANCELOT'S LAST WORD A new day is dawning A new way of thinking The old mind's drifting away A new dog is barking A new sod is rising The old clay's washing away Find the cup Fill it up Lance could not Alas! Alas! A new sun is shining A new knight is riding The old guard's passing away Find the cup Fill it up Drink it down Wear the crown Lance could not Alas, du Lac! A new way of rockin' A new way of rockin' A new way of rockin' A new way of rockin' New way A new way Find the cup Fill it up Drink it down Wear the crown Lance could not Alas! Alas! Lance could not Alas, du Lac!

IF THEY EVER LAY A FINGER ON US Seen as we are So tired and frail Forced into living our lives as cattle Told what to do, well... If they ever lay a finger on us If they ever lay a finger on us If they ever lay a finger Angels will hit them with lightening bolts Raised all the same Weak and in pain Called to the office and given a number Followed around, well... If they ever lay a finger on us If they ever lay a finger on us If they ever lay a finger Fire will fly from the fractal heart Taught to sit still Told who we are Servants to demons who charge us for shelter I'm building my own And if they ever lay a finger on us If they ever lay a finger on us If they ever lay a finger Peace will unfold and return to Earth I heard a voice Saying we are divine Sent from the stars with a power immortal Together we shine, well... If they ever lay a finger on us If they ever lay a finger on us If they ever lay a finger Angels will open their hearts to us Peace will unfold and return to Earth Fire will fly from the fractal heart Angels will hit them with lightening bolts

about

Blue Orchids Manchester, UK

Continuing the mystical thread and acid explorations which were a hallmark of The Fall's initial line-up, Martin Bramah has quietly crafted a trove of psychedelic visions unparalleled among musicians of his generation.

Despite never quite cracking mainstream public consciousness, Blue Orchids endure as a living treasures of head music for post-punks, with a series of deeply-magical recordings.
