about

Fuzzy guitars, fuzzier keys, big drums and bigger synthbass - it's the new album from Radio Over Moscow. This time with added politics, snark and lyrics inspired by those times you go down the Wikipedia rabbit hole.

Track Name: Paradise in Birth
bottom of the cliff
it's where you put the ambulance
when you cannot afford the fence

safety net or bassinet
or whatever you call the best
impediment to everyday duress

you grew up in state housing
i see you love state browsing
i wonder if carousing
and spying on the drowning
will change your mind one bit

we cannot feed the kids
they might grow up to need the kind
of motivation Geldof did

long white clouds and thin blue lines
have all been blurred beyond belief
and comfort is your middle name, i know

and we know how just lucky
we are to be the fucking
recipients of money
our soul-sucking is making

paradox on earth

you grew up in state housing
i see you love state browsing
i wonder if carousing
and spying on the drowning
is paradise in birth

or paradox on earth

goodbye
and i will see you at the bottom of the
Track Name: Fountain
aloe vera
carnivora
karma coma
caravan of love and empty
summers in the mud

one caldera
musidora
barcelona
anagram of gibberish and
monkeys on the job

release the beast within
and pepper it all with lies
unlock the loony bin
and leper it all with pies
and keep the exit open

and we could all do with
a little crazy

semi-sane and
capoeira
camo-wearing
underwear is
disappearing out of
my vision

purple rain of
theda bera
salmonella
thunder bear is
manifesting
under my supervision

release the beast within
and pepper it all with lies
unlock the loony bin
and leper it all with pies
and keep the slammer open

and we could all do with
a little crazy
Track Name: Church
have you had enough of my zealotry?
there's room enough for you in my legacy
hand over whatever you earn to me it all

it's never enough for you
it's never enough for the church
i need
the millions it costs to be me
i live through you
i need your money

hope you brought another delectable
slice of pie, your mother's inedible
though it didn't stop me from eating your children

it's never enough for you
it's never enough for the church
i need
the millions it costs to be me
i live through you
i need your money
Track Name: Antediluvia
under the sea are rotting corpses
they're of the ones you worship
kings of philosophy
melancholy bastards
rings around the rosie

sink or swim

what do you know of plate tectonics
commanding killer armies
researching the rising levels of our oceans
we live in atlantis

sink or swim

you know we live in a biosphere
the actions of a few can affect many billions
expanding into trillions
as the seas balloon into interstellar space
and drown out all the martians
the people of the outer moons of magrathea

they sink or swim
Track Name: Erased
she's run of the mill
don't do anything
just met her and i
have no memory

camera's a mother
to proof i know her

but i'm sure i don't

i live by the sword
and autocorrect
i search for the word
her name, incorrect

stories in the gutter
are proof i know her

but i'm sure i don't

she's got a face
i never looked at
she's got a name
no doubt about that

but i cannot seem to
recall the first thing

i'm run of the bulls
don't go anywhere
sarcastic as hell
and i underwhelm

camera's a mother
to proof i know her

but i'm sure i don't

i'm told we had
a moment in time
but then she flew
flew back to the rhine

but i cannot seem to
recall the first thing
Track Name: Death by a Single Cut
reject the idea that you're gonna be dead
from what your doc said
it's a placebo pill
a single cut will

i recommend life as a means to an end
a way to pretend
and a case of deja vu
will never kill you

no way, not again
i've destroyed everything

i meant just tonight not deeper emotionally
oh no

an enemy seen is an enemy dead
a massive injection of cash is what i said
will help us get ahead

just two and half billion
in the bank will
eliminate all of the
hundred dollar bills
a single cut will kill you

no way, not again
i've destroyed everything

i meant just tonight not deeper emotionally
oh no
Track Name: Black Knight Satellite
undercover, the arctic ice
suprapolar, and not by choice
don't want to be left
in orbit around a dead world

undercover, a man-at-arms
guarding a bridge, from king arthur
don't want to be left
all cut up, and not quite dead yet

black knight satellite
Track Name: Polybius
don't you want to play me?
give a quarter or three
don't forget to inform your mum
when the man in black comes
she will want to know why
the FBI says your time has come

don't forget you're living in a fantasy
your time has come
don't forget to shout out
your time has come
don't forget to breathe out

play a level or five
or a hundred or more
i forgot where i used to live
but the game is so good
never want to go home
to the place where the off switch lives

don't forget you're living in a fantasy

don't forget you're living in a fantasy
your time has come
don't forget to shout out
your time has come
don't forget to breathe out
Track Name: The Arzt of War
what are you waiting for
this is the arzt of war
we better get off the beach
the caves are out of reach

live together die alone
move in with the ancient bones
live together die alone
till the hatch is overthrown

we need some dynamite
to give the others a fright
you got some arzt on you
that high school drone is through

live together die alone
move in with the ancient bones
live together die alone
till the hatch is overthrown
blown open
Track Name: Zero Stroke
i must buy everything i need before work
i can't be wasting time here with you
how many zeroes are there now? there can't be!
no one has that kind of money, are you crazy?

i don't have that kind of money, zero stroke
Track Name: Kid Fud
have another
glass of blue top milk

your uncle hone

piece of marmite toast

so feed the kids
and they will love you

until they're old enough to vote for you

and they will love you

until they're old enough to vote for you
