about

" Dome Dwellers deal in herbal-scented pop music that sounds not unlike Kings of Leon covering the flaming lips in a kettle, surrounded by a plethora of mind-expanding drugs

Swerving wildly between the twin beaks of psychedelic pop and out-and-out stoner aggression, [Lie Down] it’s one of those tracks that can’t help to bring to mind the freak-show spazz outs of Sonic Youth at their peak. --- ‘Say it ain’t so’ should be piped in to prisons across the world in order to reduce inmate violence with its charming guitars sounding like a psychedelic representation of Fugazi unplugged, if you can imagine such a thing. With Cullen Dean’s bass playing an important role underpinning Michael J Slack’s flights of art-rock fancy and David Gore apparently imagining he’s in a jazz band, the music takes all manner of unexpected deviations and it’s a simple pleasure to try to anticipate what the band will do next.

They’re the sort of band you’ll want to play to your friends and the sort of band that will (and deserve to) inspire a loyal following that will undoubtedly cross oceans to see them play live. --- ‘Maybe I should have some pride’ is a great record that’ll leave you with a huge smile on your face – gloriously, wonderfully unique, it has no immediate peers and it’s simply a joyous experience from its atypical start to its distortion-laden conclusion."

Track Name: Lie Down
I was cursed with intellect, a seeker’s heart full of regret
and I just wanna Lie Down

The only time that I feel good is when I’ve done the things I should
Before I Lie Down

Cause I’m tired of disappointment
I’m tired of disappointment
I’m tired of Disappointment
I’m tired of Disappointment

Why is my life?
Why is my light?

Waste away my days walking through a haze
A self-inflicted pain that just won’t go away
Away

So you wanna level with me, it’s all the same as far as I can see
So sit down

I’m tired of being second best when I can feel it in my chest
Maybe I should lie down

Cause I’m tired of disappointment
I’m tired of disappointment
I’m tired of Disappointment
I’m tired of Disappointment

Why, is my life?
Why, is my light?

Waste away my days walking through a haze
A self-inflicted pain that just won’t go away,
Away

Wearing black, you can blend into the night
And never be seen or let light escape
Wearing black, you can blend into the night
And never be seen or let light escape
Escape
Track Name: Bellied Up
I’m Bellied Up
I’m Bellied Up
I’m Bellied Up
I’m Bellied Up

Well I’m Bellied Up
In a sealed up cup
Just dying from the lack of air
The kids are looking in
At my fishy grin
I’m just smiling
From the lack of air
Oh, The lack of air

The kids are looking in at me
The kids are looking in at me
The kids are looking in at me
I smile for all to see

I’m Bellied Up
I’m Bellied Up
I’m Bellied Up
I’m Bellied Up

Well I’m fed up
With yellow tape and red cups
Is this freedom, or the lack thereof?
Crossing county lines
Leaving far behind
Our chances of getting it right
Oh, of getting it right
Oh, of getting it right

We leave behind our chances now
We leave behind our chances now
We leave behind our chances now
Of ever getting it right
Track Name: Say it Ain't so
Carving a path with or without me
It’s not hard to do the math
Dependence does not suit me

Say it Ain’t So
Say it Ain’t So

I’ve never seen such a thing as this, as this
Cause I’ve never travelled to these parts, these parts
I’ve never seen such a thing as this, as this
Cause I’ve never travelled to these parts

These Parts
These Parts
These Parts
These Parts
Track Name: Polymath
I’m never doing what I’m supposed to be
I’m writing songs when others need me
Oh I, am trying
So why?
Would I be lying

Live like you mean it, like you’ve seen it in a dream
Carry the answers in your pocket, in the scenery
I left in the night
And that’s when I reclaimed by birthright

With so much going on
Everything just goes wrong
With so much going on
Everything just goes wrong, so wrong

So wrong, so wrong
So wrong, so wrong
So wrong, so wrong
So wrong

The jack-of-all-trades wants to be a renaissance man
The philosopher and the polymath all do what they can
It’s time, to realize
That I, should compromise

Don’t try to contain it or name it with words
Find it in a child, so wild
Like a caged bird
I was blind
And that’s when I made up my worried mind

With so much going on
Everything just goes wrong
With so much going on
Everything just goes wrong, so wrong

So wrong, so wrong
So wrong, so wrong
So wrong, so wrong
So wrong
Track Name: Song of Self Assurance
Wound, around
The pegs, are my
Guitar, strings
Listen, to them
Sing

You ask me why? It’s to make me feel alive.
What’s the purpose of living if you never arrive?
Why do I waste the time? 'cause I never learn.
Both ends of my candle are left to burn.

Ride the impulses through every crook and bend.
Feel them crawl like insects on your paper skin.

My mind is made up, this is for me.
I’m willing to stay up just to see,
where this will take me and the things I’ll see.
What lies underneath the surface of you and me.

Wound, around
The pegs, are my
Guitar, strings
Listen, to them
Sing
Track Name: Crazy Talk
I don’t know
I don’t know
I don’t know if it shows

So I’ve been battling some demons
For how long, I do not know
I don’t wanna bother anyone with my problems
I keep them in and never let go

But it’s time to let go
Of the chains around my throat
Speak clearly and true
Now I’ll know the truth

I don’t know
I don’t know
I don’t know if it shows

False hope in pipe dreams
I go farther now within
Nothing’s really ever as bad as it seems
Without any pride to defend

Now I’m ready to let you in
If you promise me this
You’ll run far at first signs
That I might be losing my mind
Track Name: Carnivores
Carnivores don’t feel bad for killing
Carnivores don’t feel bad for lying
Carnivores don’t feel bad for stealing

Don’t you push me, don’t you shush me, don’t tell me that I should quit
Don’t you scorn me, don’t you mourn for me, don’t be a hypocrite

Carnivores don’t feel bad for killing
Carnivores don’t feel bad for cheating
Carnivores don’t feel bad for Betraying

Won’t you listen to their warnings
they’ve got a story to tell
The lights are dimming, the sewers swimming
The truth will find it’s way out
Track Name: My Halo
My Halo don’t fit me no more
My Halo don’t fit me no more
Cause I’m not the good boy that I once was before

Well maybe I should have some pride
Well maybe I should have some pride
Standing tall with my eyes open wide

I think it’s time for me go
I think it’s time for me go
Cause I’ve been staring at your legs
Which tells you many things you didn’t need to know

I have this whole place to myself
I have this whole place to myself
Isolation is fine but is it good for my mental health

My Halo don’t fit me no more
Cause it’s worn with age
I still don’t know what it’s for
Cause I’ve already turned the page
