ThinMan Songs Of LoRock LoFi Americana

(with the fantabulous Lloyd Croft sitting in on Drums)

but it all began in Susanville California - a loooooong long time ago:
Robeerto stopped there on a trans-american road trip looking for Highway 99 and stumbled into a music bar where he first heard the songs of The Thinman. Then Captain Cutts arrived by some strange motion of the planets. The Thinman (who thought english accents were "too cool for the room") liked Captain Cutts' Bass playing so much that that Robeerto and The Captain ended up being his backing for a few short months. They even ended up taking his mysterious packages south to the outskirts of Reno from time to time. Later that year, as the sun fell lower in the desert sky, The Thinman advised that he was going away and they should return to "England and Sherwood Forest and hole up for a while" (The Thinman's knowledge of England was limited !). He did also say that we could carry on with his songs cuz "he wouldn't be needing them no more" and "time would be wrapping him in darkness for a while" and he might be going for some "high desert correction"............................well, we didn't know exactly what he meant but we got the picture...................
So.......we ended up in Newcastle and in another music bar we met Derek The Hat. Derek liked The Thinman's songs too so we re-convened the band....................let's see where this chapter goes ? Who knows ? (Fucking nowhere would be my guess; but better to go down firing.......)

Track Name: Fall
© ANeckenderMusic 2006
I put my head out of an aeroplane window
I saw the face of god in his Heaven
Nowhere to be and nowhere to go
A single dice can’t roll a 7

All I could do was fall fall fall fall
We’ll be hitting the drop zone soon
And I don’t want to take you down too
The moment has passed and time turned sour
Life could be over in half an hour

All I can do is fall fall fall fall

So now I only travel in dreams at night
I navigate by city lights
It’s a little tricky with an ocean to cross
But I follow boats like an albatross

All I can do is fall fall fall fall

How did I ever get so high ?
How did I learn to fly ?
I float like an electric ghost
The stars are getting close

Small talk in the small hours of small time in a small town in a small world.......small mind
The drink makes you sad – eventually
And I wish I knew more about good and less about bad

All the angels talk in whispers
And God never lets them kiss yer
But I’m ok in the stratosphere
I kinda like it up here

But all I can do is fall fall fall fall

Fly away – hopeless dreamer
Don’t let them drag you down
Life is shit when you’re not around
This what God made you for
Fly away – hopeless dreamer
But please fly home one day
Fly away – hopeless dreamer
I need to see you a million times more
Track Name: Time Bomb
© ThinmanMusic 2006

This is the crazy song
All your love is gone
This is a world gone wrong
This is the world where I belong
This is the world where I belong

Still stuck in the Starlight City
I want to fight but nobody will hit me
My ex-girlfriend just told me
This life can be so lonely
This life can be so lonely

Time can’t change me
But I can change time…………………………….

I’m runnin’ like a Baskerville hound
My tail is draggin’ on the ground
I’m as fast as ultrasound
Keepin’ up with the world spinning round
Keepin’ up with the world spinning round

Time can’t change me
But I can change time…………………………….

This turkey is so cold
Life is bought and sold
Hearts so heavy and made out of gold
Drag you down and crush your soul
Drag you down and crush your soul

Time can’t change me
But I can change time…………………………….

Cold twilight along this street
Shadows begin underneath my feet
But I still got all my speed
So I got all I need
My fog my pearls and my amphetamine

Time can’t change me
But I can change time………………………………………..

Beating sparks out of these stones
Pray for a sound from my mobile phone
Mary I don’t deserve to be so alone
Cos I never ever did get old
Cos I never ever did get old

Time can’t change me
But I can change time
Time can’t change me
But I can change time………………………………………………

The Time Bomb Time is Tickin tickin tickin like a time bomb
Gets Everyone Listen listen listen I’m not wrong
Not long No time now for a good song
And you’re gone Better not make it too long
I’m never wrong TIME BOMB TIME BOMB TIME BOMB
In a song SPEED TIME SPEED TIME WE NEED TIME NEED TIME MORE TIME
It’s a Time Bomb - It’s a Time Bomb
Track Name: The Floating Ghost
© ThinmanMusic 2006


I’m looking from a window and I can’t see a tree
I’m in a desert city in the land of luxury
A woman in a fur coat is walkin’ up the street
She got the light in her eyes but she can’t see me

I am the floating ghost
That no-one ever knows
And I go places no-one ever goes

I arrive from the skies and I float away untouched
To the heart of the stars where all light is crushed
All the night time sounds - I conduct
I’m the genius that was always overlooked

Float over Mexico
Float over Idaho
I float anywhere I want to go

I look down on this earth – from way up high
I don’t understand – how I can fly
I got eyes so wide – there ain’t no place to hide
You can lock your doors but I just float inside

I am the floating ghost
That no-one ever knows
And I go places no-one ever goes

Float in the summer heat
Float over Downing Street
I float in the places old ghosts meet

And I trail the Taliban
And I view the Vatican
And I piss in the Palace of Buckingham
Track Name: Whores And Dwarves In Bruges
© ThinManMusic2006

She taught me how to party
With whores and dwarves in Bruges
One kiss was all it took to start me
I still got something for her that’s huge

And I think I’m still in love
But I can’t be sure
Sometimes all that is - confusing stuff
But nothing seems like it did before

My Daddy never told me
Goodbye’s the cruellest sound
A woman like that can be deadly
Take your heart and nail it to the ground

Now the sky is upside down
And my life is back to front
My head is spinning round
But there’s nothing else I want

My Daddy never told me
Goodbye’s the cruellest sound
A woman like that can be deadly
Take your heart and nail it to the ground

Take your soul and crush it
Take your brain and wash it
Take your outh and kiss on it
Take your heart and piss on it

It’s like my worst fear
Someone like her can - disappear
And this time I think it’s true
But I suppose I always knew

My Daddy never told me
Goodbye’s the cruellest sound
A woman like that can be deadly
Take your soul and burn it
Take your brain and wash it
Take your life and crush it
Take your heart and nail it – to the ground
Track Name: This Ring Is A Bullet
© ThinmanMusic 2006
All the jewellery you bought me
Well I don’t want it
I don’t even want the money :
If I ever pawn it

This ring is a bullet

This bracelet is a snake
A snake round my arm
Venom in my veins
You did me nothing but harm

This ring is a bullet
It put a hole in my heart
Don’t you argue don’t you start
If I had a trigger – I would pull it
This ring is a bullet

Gold is heavy metal
It only drags you down
Like a summer flower’s petals
Lying on the ground

This ring is a bullet
It put a hole in my heart
Don’t you argue don’t you start
If I had a trigger – I would pull it
This ring is a bullet
Track Name: $1400 (Live)
© ThinmanMusic 2011


I got 14 hundred and 14 dollars and 14 cents
It’s my life saving but I don’t know where it went
I got weapons – and I got an evil intent
I need revenge – I’m a dissident

I just gotta keep running – I got lawmen on my mind

I like the cemetery - on halloween
I like chemistry - I got a mind full of dreams
I got a Kawasaki - that runs on K-1 Kerosene
No one can catch me - it’s my getaway machine

I just gotta keep running – I won’t ever do their time

You can hear my songs on 50,000 Watts Radio Stations
You can find my tunes in the religious incantations
But I don’t like covers – it’s contamination
You gotta beware of the cheap shit imitations

I just gotta keep running – Lawmen on my trail and on my mind

I look after myself - I don’t need to carry a pistol
Just a phaser gun on stun – and a referee’s whistle
To use on people who talk and never listen
I take their money – I’m on a mission
And nobody knows my name cos I was never christened

I just gotta keep running – I won’t ever do no time
I just gotta keep runnin – I keep one bullet behind
I keep one bullet behind
I keep one bullet behind

Track Name: This Ring Is A Bullet (Live)

This ring is a bullet
It put a hole in my heart
Don’t you argue don’t you start
If I had a trigger – I would pull it
This ring is a bullet

All the jewellery you bought me
Well I don’t want it
I don’t even want the money
If I ever pawn it

This bracelet is a snake
A snake round my arm
Venom in my veins
You did me nothing but harm

This necklace is a chain
A chain round my throat
Making me choke
I won’t ever wear it again

And this brooch is a shield
Like a sherrifs badge
It hides the way I feel
Security I never had

Your stud is burning
Left a mark on me
Some lessons take too much learning
It reminds me I’m lonely

All the jewellery you bought me
Well I don’t want it
Golden bullets
With diamond tips

This ring is a bullet
It put a hole in my heart
You’re a dark work of art
If I had a trigger – I would pull it
This ring is a bullet

Gold is heavy metal
It only drags you down
Like a summer flower’s petals
Lying on the ground

Gold is heavy metal
They make it into chains
The grave won’t be so lonely
I’ll have my secrets with me
Track Name: The King Of Sweden (Live)
© ThinmanMusic 2006

The Holy Roman Empire
Are coming for us
The burning church and crooked spires
Want to be our saviours
Their foraging armies
Take all our provisions
Don’t wait for me
Where is The King Of Sweden ?
Where is The King Of Sweden ?

Why can’t life be like it was
We don’t need a new God
We didn’t need salvation
We don’t need to be a nation

They come up The Spanish Road
You hear them marching so slow
They’re followed by the murder crows
Death is coming and we all know
Nothing on earth can stop them
This was our garden of Eden
There is so many of them
Where is The King Of Sweden ?
Where is The King Of Sweden ?

Why can’t life be like it was
We don’t need a new God
We didn’t need salvation
We don’t need to be a nation

Well the Scottish Mercenaries
Won’t show no mercy
And nobody ever told me
I would die this early
The dawn chorus of babies
Squealin for their feedin
And I ain’t heard laughter lately
I ain’t heard laughter lately
O Where is The King Of Sweden ?

Why can’t life be like it was
We don’t need a new God
We didn’t need salvation
We don’t need to be a nation

I was born to die in Magdeburg
For Martin Luther and Calvin
But the sweetest sound I ever heard
Was your sweet voice a singin’
It’s a memory I cling to
As we all lie bleedin
It’s the only God I sing to
Where is The King Of Sweden ?
Where is The King Of Sweden ?

Why can’t life be like it was
We don’t need a new God
We didn’t need salvation
We don’t need to be a nation



They throw babies onto bonfires
Rape women in their husbands arms
This holy evil empire
Thinks it won’t do us any harm
Well the King of Sweden will wait for them
Wait for them in the depths of hell
Just like we were waiting for him
The demon ranks will swell
There is The King Of Sweden
There is The King Of Sweden
Track Name: Everyone Leaves In October
Everyone Leaves
© ANeckenderMusic 2013


This is the philosophy
Recipe of Mr Lee
He makes you welcome here
In the heart of Korea
He is the top man
In all of Busan

Not everyone knows
How to be heroes
But Mr Lee knows
He’ll tell you how life goes

Everyone leaves - says Mr Lee
All plans will change - you will see
The future never happens - but it will be
Everyone leaves
Everyone leaves
Everyone leaves
Everyone leaves
Says Mr Lee

King Kong on a hilltop
Looking out to sea
He’s never gonna stop
Looking for me
But I’m out of reach
Sitting on Gwangalli Beach

Don’t ever look at photographs
They never make you laugh
They just prove nothing lasts
They can never take you back
They steal your soul
And put it in the past

Everyone leaves - says Mr Lee
All plans will change - you will see
The future’s never here - but it will be
Everyone leaves
Everyone leaves
Everyone leaves
Everyone leaves
Says Mr Lee

Like the dark nights of October
Summer dreams are never over
And I’m still hanging from this cable car
How did it get this high this far ?
Nothing ever lasts
Nothing ever lasts
Nothing ever lasts
It’s all in the past
All in the past................................
