    THIS IS THE FIRST PART OF OUR TWO PART DÉBUT EP SET.
    Not nearly enough is known of Comtesse Martha Von Bartha to state whether she was either a sociopath or a psychopath, and in fact to do so would surely be splitting hairs. Over the course of a decade we know she gave birth to at least four children by four different fathers and that she abandoned each within minutes or hours. But back in the ‘70s and ‘80s Martha could never have envisaged the burgeoning accuracy of forensic genealogy, nor the hand of fate that would guide the unknowing half-siblings together...

Track Name: Bod
Grumbling on, grumbling on, why can't you find something else to do except grumble on
You don't listen to me, you don't hear a word I say, why can't you be more like the men on the radio plays.

Back and forth we go
All talk, to the wall

Don't turn your back on me, don't turn the other way, I'm trying to speak, I'm trying to speak to you
I don't want to talk right now, I have got some things to do, like push my eyes back in my head and continue to ignore you

Back and forth we go
All talk, to the wall

Kicking off because we're tired of routine, kicking off because we can, let's make things worse

Feeling like hurting you, wrap my fingers around your neck, till you're out of breath
Just do it, just do it, come on I dare you, do it

What is that face for?
Wipe that smile up off your face
Wipe that frown up off your face
Back and Forth
Track Name: Tank
Feel like fighting for no reason at all, it's time to get dressed and get covered in destruction

They all come out a'crawling round, they all come out into the town

I don't know you, but your ears I will bend, I think I love you, at least until this elation ends

They all come out a'crawling round, they all come out into the town

Don't know where to look
Can't keep my eyes in my head anyway

They all come out into the town

Ohhhhh there's sick in my hair, and I want to go home but I don't know where I live
Ooooohh this puzzling state of mind, that dirties up these streets of mine, it'll all be gone by morning time.
Track Name: Flotsam & Jetsam
Had a bad dream, believed what I saw

and now I want you to, I want you to go

You looked at me with hollow eyes and now I only see your dream disguise

I want you to, I want you to go

I know that none of that was real but I don;t know why I feel like this

I want you to, I want you to go

You're looking at me in that funny way, I don't know what to say to make it go away
I don't know

It's really daft I know, but I'll still want you to come back

I'll try to go to sleep tonight and think of all the things you do for me.
Track Name: Cover Your Mouth
Peeling fields with cold water, can't feel our hands, look up to the sky, a flash invites the eyes
We can't look back to where we came from, it will all be different now

Can't comprehend it, this end to our world

All of the things that have gone before, will all be dust

Can't comprehend it, this end to our world
Cover your mouth, the dust of everything will go in there

You'll miss your cars, You'll miss your toy soldiers

Can't comprehend it, this end to our world
Cover your mouth, the dust of everything will go in there
Track Name: Sit Lola Sit!
Two people walking down the street, they look the same
Now they are slowing right down to meet the eye
No, No, don;t stop, keep walking on, oh, it's too late

He sees her, she sees him, keep walking on
She sees him, he sees her, keep walking on

Hearts jump into their throats

Little did they know, they met a long time ago, it was somewhere warm, now they are here, in the streets all pie eyed, WHAT ARE THE CHANCES OF THAT?

In the beginning and the end, it all seemed well for a while, this narcissistic bliss

Little did they know, they met a long time ago, it was somewhere warm, now they are here, in the streets all pie eyed, WHAT ARE THE CHANCES OF THAT?

Six degrees of separation, without the six

But with a sample of their blood, it was all about to change, but with a sample of their blood, things would never be the same. No.

They could no longer bask in the ignorance of what they believed to be true, everybody's eyes now decide, what it is they should do
Does it change? Is it sick? Whatever it is, it's not going to be the same.
