about

"Hello, babies, welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies -: God damn it, you've got to be kind."
Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

The Holy Snakes Trio are;
Dan Faichney, Sean McGouldrick & Matthew Long
Lyrics by Dan Faichney.
Music by Holy Snakes Trio.

Recorded and mixed by Jason Rees at DM Studios, Dundee in 2018.

Track Name: God Bless You, Mr Rosewater
Meet me at the Bluebird Hotel
I’ll explain everything
Or better still, won’t say nothing at all
I’m not crazy
Can explain everything
I’ve got enough love for everyone

Here I am, lying in the gutter
Staring at the gutter
Cause no one deserves to be forgotten
Now they’re bringing me their babies
Like I was a baptist
I’ve got some choice words of advice

There’s one rule I know of, in this world
Babies, you’ve got to be kind
Track Name: Welcome To The Neighbourhood
Welcome to the neighbourhood
Take what you need to help you feel at home
We’ll look after you
You could say we look out for our own

Bet you’ve got questions to ask
Be patient, we will try to answer them
For now, just relax
You may never have it this easy again

From the moment you wake
You’re never truly alone
But as soon as you close your eyes
You’re on your own.
Track Name: Applause Sign
I can’t stand it!
I mean I can’t understand it
You must know what I’m talking about
Took ‘til now but I’m calling you out
There in the VIPs they’re hanging on your every line
I’m in the cheap seats, waiting for the applause sign

How’d you do it?
I mean, how did you do it?
I don’t think you even know yourself,
Too much of this shit is bad for yr health
They’re in the VIPs hanging on your every line
I’m in the cheap seats, waiting for the applause sign

Now I can’t get what I need
Never could get nothin’.
Track Name: Trains Song
Mailing myself home, a piece at a time
Choosing trouble ahead instead of trouble behind
So that when I got in with stories to tell
Found that somehow I still had nothing to say for myself

I’ll follow old roads home at the back of my mind
Counting roadkill out loud to measure the miles
The river burst the banks, so send it to jail
Don’t worry, baby, we’re too big, too high, to fail

And if you ever wanna know how I worry
Just count the empties that are stacking up around me I
’ve been searching for whatever promises to last forever
Too bad, so sad, sun is sinking on the river
Track Name: Feels Fine
We started at the end, when we were both broken-hearted
And we tried to fix each other, but we never made it out of bed

What now? What light from yonder window breaks?
And wherefore yonder anyway?
This girl’s got me singing, quoting words I never thought I’d say

Before, I might hear your name and it’d drive me wild
But now, I can see your face and it feels fine
Before, you might call my name and it’d drive me out of my mind
But now, I can see your face and it feels fine
