about

we are tackling mental health. all proceeds go to mental health.

here are some reviews from eminent academics on the inner workings of le servo de spock's "making it in the yay":

"the symbolic codification, though quite oblique in essence, intimates a hidden profundity of dysthymic transcendence buried in the bones."
Louis Althusser, 'making it in the yay: a semiotic critique'

"What le servo de spock have achieved with tracks such as 'opalescent' and 'envelope' represent a complete death not only of the author as god but of the singer as story-teller. We are witnessing the rebirth of truth in song"
Roland Barthes, 'making it in the yay: a fresh start'

"I heard a bird. It tasted like cherry. I saw the stigmata of Christ and it burned on my eyes. The album begets a myriad of kaleidoscopic sensations, and for this I am indebted to her creators."
Jacques Derrida

Track Name: envelope
take a look at the big blue sky
walking out by the hedge
take a look at the happy guy
such a sunshine on legs

i wanna put it in the envelope (repeated)

take a look at the japanese
and their sushi and sake
take a look at their older folk
how they honour the envelope

[chorus]

i don't care about envelopes
i have a schizotypal personality
it makes me anxious in social situations
i wanna hide in an envelope

i wanna hide in an envelope
i wanna hide in the envelope
etc...
Track Name: opalescent
it's a little bit opalescent
i don't know man

i've been thinking about suicide a lot recently
i just don't see how i can continue this life
all i see in front of me is a vast expanse of pain
i have little to look forward to
this life is very difficult

it's a little bit opalescent
i don't know man

wouldn't it be nice if there was a heaven
a place to go when you die
you climb the stairs and you find a happy face
to welcome you home
wouldn't it be nice
if there was a heaven
a place to go when you die
you climb the stairs and you're home
Track Name: kirsty young will heal this world
fragile little men, leave your skull shells
meet me on the beach, in your birthday suits
your women have already gone in confidence
they stripped you of your trunks
and burnt your armbands

oh fragile men

empty little shells lost in silence
torches on the sand send them messages
lulling them into a state of solitude
teaching them to stay inside their little minds

their little minds

bitter taste of iron stains my little tongue
to allay my pain i dream of kirsty young
she can solve my problems like a mathlete mind
i will fly with kirsty 'til i leave this world behind

kirsty young lets be gone now
this plain of existence it's too painful for us
with your knowledge of the complex art world
we can find a sculpture we can live on
somewhere close
somewhere intimate
kirsty young
kirsty young
Track Name: hey girl (happy people)
hey girl
you're looking very nice
so nice
you make me blind
hey girl
you've got nice woman eyes
so nice
you make me wanna smile
take a look at the happy people
rolling on the night
i wanna be one of the happy people
rolling on the night
hey baby
do you wanna go and see a movie?
we can go and watch "sunshine on leith"
it hasn't been very well reviewed
but we can make our own minds up about it
so won't you go with me and see...
take a look at the happy people
rolling on the night
i wanna be one of the happy people
rolling on the night
Track Name: the apple man
one night a man came to town
he had a taste for hard liquor
and women
he drank his beer from a can
he was the apple man
he was a very bad apple
he did all he could
to satiate his appetite
and not end up in prison
he was the apple man
he was the apple man
he was the apple man
he was the apple man he was the apple man
he was the apple man
he was a very bad apple
Track Name: good god
good god good god good god
bad god
good god

good god left on a business trip to a sunnier solar system
oh why don't you take me away? i could sit on your shoulder
use your beard as a seatbelt
be your midget organic radio
i wanna be happy
i wanna be with you god
i don't want a god i can buy at the butchers
or a god i can pray to
or a god i can die for
i want a god i can sit on

oh don't leave me here with bad god
he's an arsehole
always trying to make me hurt myself
oh don't leave me here with bad god
he's a boring fuck
making me write my songs about myself

good god good god good god bad god
bad god
bad god's under the bed and whisper hello in the darkness
oh why don't you leave me alone it is two in the morning
i have work in the morning
and your heavy breathings quite off putting
i wanna make connections
i wanna have soul poking eyes
i don't want to worry about looking attentive
or acting normal
or enjoying myself in public places
i want to hover slightly

oh let me go with good god
he's a tricycle
three wheels of otherworldly fun
oh let me go with good god
he's a high flyer
we can pop like bubbles in the sun
