The Slouch

What’s the fascination with procrastination?

What’s the fascination with procrastination?

What’s the fascination with procrastination?

Slouched like a grouch on the couch in the basement

What’s the fascination with procrastination?

Ammo casing filled with angry accusations



Mate, you need to get yourself out of the house

And get dowsed in some sunshine I shout

I’m met with a trout pout scabby dowt hanging out

Under each bloodshot eye hangs a black pouch

Look inside see a big man crouch

So much capability but even more doubt

Smoking soap immune system’s out for the count

Mount Everest Edmund Hilary’s capillaries

Rabid inhabitants of dilapidated labyrinths

Lavish in inaccurate facts from fractured cabinets

The being demonstrating making greatest hits

We may not have long on this earth so best savour it

Like an old lover’s fragrance it makes sense

Carpe diem may make my life mayhem

Stems for the trees seized in my play pen

Pour my heart out say when now amen





What’s the fascination with procrastination?

Slouched like a grouch on the couch in the basement

What’s the fascination with procrastination?

My life feels like a stop motion animation

What’s the fascination with procrastination?

Slouched like a grouch on the couch in the basement

What’s the fascination with procrastination?

Ammo casing filled with angry accusations





I’m largely in agreement with my inner demons

Overdoing it Friday evening can deprive you of entire weekends

See it seeping through the Monday of a tired remit

Bewildered Wednesday from hedonism on the 7th day

Rest assured I’ve toured my resume

And let negativity really resonate

This guessing game compresses rage into my weathered face

Phone calls from mates stuck selling eighths

Chipping away as sanity slowly desiccates

Crumbled conscience unresponsive to the renegades

Never played out the way the song sheet showed

Shame I was renovating regulations centre stage

Raise the steaks and temperature in centigrade

Until those ice maidens melt away

I felt the feint onset of guilt and then it gained

Momentum until my left side went numb



What’s the fascination with procrastination?

Slouched like a grouch on the couch in the basement

What’s the fascination with procrastination?

My life feels like a stop motion animation

What’s the fascination with procrastination?

Slouched like a grouch on the couch in the basement

What’s the fascination with procrastination?

Ammo casing filled with angry accusations

A vaguely outrageous, psychedelic 3 piece Hip Hop folk funk outfit, hand crafting screwball anthems deep in the Highlands of Scotland. Amalgamating a wealth of experience in vocal performance and musicianship, whilst fusing the hip hop languages of scratching, beat-boxing and lucid lyricism with the foibles of apathy and the implied abuse of aquatic life. ... more
