about

This is the first proper album by The March Violets.
The difficult first album.
It took 3 years to finish. It was made possible by lots of pledges by fans and friends, who have had access to it first. As they should. They seem to like it. We are now making it available to anyone else who wants to support us by buying it.

It was written as a double LP for Vinyl, 16 tracks, 4 to a side, and hopefully takes you on an interesting slightly dark and twisted journey. We've never been fans of formulas, or repeating ourselves, so we just did what we want. We figure that we will sound like the March Violets because we ARE the March Violets.

Hope you like it.

Track Name: Made Glorious
Made Glorious

Well look at you
With your angel face
And your angel wings
Oh the mirror sings
Well look at you
Powdered gold and peacock blue
Belladonna in your eyes
Finish with a line of silver

Made glorious
With a line of silver
You're magnificent
You're radiant
You're magnificent
Exceptional
And a bow to the mirror

Track Name: A Room With No View
A Room With No View

Reflections
Of another place
The face to the glass
The glass to the face
Take a poison bubble bath
Read about it all
Dip your pen into the truth
Write it on the wall

Do you want to be alone? (who wrote this?)
In a room with no view
(oh god... Who wrote this?)
Do you really want to be alone?
In a room with no view
(who wrote this script for you?)

You want love and fear ~ in a single room
In a single pill ~ in a single bed
At a single stroke

The things unsaid
Hold it to your head
It was never yours
I want doesn't get!

Do you want to be alone?
(who wrote this?)
In a room with no view
(oh god... Who wrote this?)
Do you really want to be alone?
In a room with no view
(no no no no)

Decisions
Undefined

Don't read it, don't feel it
Don't make it true
Don't dream it
who wrote this for you?
How did you end up here?
History is turning queer
How did you end up here?
This mystery is clear

Do you want to be alone?
(who wrote this?)
In a room with no view
(oh god... Who wrote this?)
Do you really want to be alone?
In a room with no view
(who wrote this script for you?)
Track Name: Of Roses
Of Roses
Psychokiller psychokiller
You get me hot
Then you leave me cold
This game's getting old
And here's another grave in a basement

And here's another
Case to be closed
One more red night
Of roses

One more mob under torchlight
Looking - everywhere
But under - their noses

And the psychokiller who lives next door
Washes the car, mows the lawn
Takes the dog out for a walk
It's nothing personal
The psychokiller who lives next door
Washes the car, mows the lawn
Takes the dog out for a walk
Sees you're all alone
And it's one more red night of roses

Was it someone you knew
Who
Stops to chat buys a map
Feeds the birds by the lake
Smiles and waves at the officers
In the park so ordinary
The psychokiller who lives next door
Washes the car, mows the lawn
Takes the dog out for a walk
Sees you're all alone
And it's one more red night of roses

One more red night of roses
Track Name: Tokyo Flow
Tokyo Flow

Ha
Kawa no hotori no hanabi
Neko no inai machi
Neon sainn ni hikaru ame
Hai

In a box in Tokyo, looking out at glowing rain
Back leg rhythm and low bone
Bring on the maids and a bullet train
It's a brief encounter
In room 753
The ceremony made so much sense
But her eyes were too big for me

Tokyo flow

The fireworks
Through walls of tears
And we have become
The sum our fears
And some of our fears
Lit the fuse
And some of my fears
Point to you

Made us believe
There's nothing to lose

And by the river
The tide has turned
Just a thin film between us
Red light flashing
And the Bank of Venus
Is crashing

Neon
Glowing rain
Everyone's afraid
Bring on the maids
Bring on the maids

Tokyo
Flow
Track Name: Ramming Speed
Ramming Speed

When I was the size of a bottle of rum
I was sold to the devil by my evil ol' mum
Sold for the price of a barrel of gin
A handful of baccy and a silver pin

Captain Kidd for it was he
Raised me up and we're off to sea
Drummer on a galley of 64 blades
I was bound for the Spanish main

Took to the life most studiously
With the evil deeds of robbery
But my delight was to raise the beat
And get us up to ramming speed

Ramming speed ramming speed
Haul away boys it's ramming speed
Ramming speed ramming speed
Haul away boys to ramming speed
Ramming speed ramming speed
Take it up boys to ramming speed
Ramming speed ramming speed
Take it up boys to ramming speed

Promoted myself by way of the knife
Dog eat dog is a pirate's life
Spent my money and spilled my seed
I hauled away and rattled the sheets

Ramming speed ramming speed
Haul away boys to ramming speed
Ramming speed ramming speed
Take it up boys to ramming speed
Ramming speed ramming speed
Take it up boys to ramming speed

Well truth be told this life grew old
Excitement died and my heart grew cold
As it does
Then on a beach in Madagasky
An island girl happened to me
She was pretty and warm and real
I went overboard head and heels
I was saved by an island girl
Pretty and pure as a deep sea pearl
We made sweet sweet love
She even said that she'd be true
True to you, I'll wait for you

I was away for half a year
Raiding the coast and causing fear
And I returned full of pride
To find my girl full of child
Laughing with another buccaneer
In my anger my course was clear
I rose up full of pride and power
I took my pistol put a fiery flower
Behind her ear ~ oh! My dear!
Put my cutlass through her lover
And so she died beside her brother
And so it ends rather tragically
Well what d'you expect?
Track Name: Little Punk Thing
Little Punk Thing

A little voice in the back of my head
Makes me question what you said
Money and power don't make it true
Well maybe I don't believe in you

It's a little punk thing in the back of my brain
A little punk thing keeping me sane

It's just a little punk thing
Hey you whatcha gonna do? Lie like a banker?
It's a little punk thing
Hey you whatcha gonna do? Lie like a banker?

Well everything you do is wrong, there's no escape from Babylon
It's only the children of the bankers that can afford to be good looking

A little lie here and there
Give them doubt and sell them fear
Make them do your job for free
Call it the Big Society

It's a little punk thing in the back of my brain
Hey you whatcha gonna do? Lie like a banker?
A little punk thing keeping me sane
Hey you whatcha gonna do? Lie like a banker?
It's just a little punk, a little punk thing

I'm a rebel without applause
Don't worry you'll get yours

Don't need it, I don't need it
Don't b'lieve it, don't bleed it

With your unmanned drone planes
Sea full of oil
Put the price up make my blood boil

You refer to the book of rules
It's the one you wrote and put in schools
Then you come round here in designer gear
Made by kids in India
It's a little punk thing in the back of my brain
A little punk thing keeping me sane

It's just a little punk thing
Hey you whatcha gonna do? Lie like a banker?
It's a little punk thing
Hey you whatcha gonna do? Lie like a banker?
Track Name: Dandelion King
Dandelion King

So here we are
You and me
And here we are
The twenty second century
And you can be the queen of America
And I will be the dandelion king
And you can cut the head off
Everyone you hate
And watch them blow away in the wind
The twenty second century
Here we are
Twenty second century
Here we are
And I will be the queen of America
And you can be the dandelion king
Here we are

We're ahead of our time

From the caveman to the spaceman
Everybody's dna is coming out to play
And the dandelion king
Says everything's ok
Everything's ok

From the caveman to the spaceman
We repeat the same old thing
And all the ghosts are standing next to me
With the dandelion king
And here we are, here we are, once again

We're ahead of our time
We're ahead of your time
Track Name: 2024
2024

In the year 2024
The tallyman at your door
Tax the poor to build a wall
Around the rich save them all

In the city the overlords
Throw the future overboard
Everything they've ever bought
Is locked and loaded
Waiting in the zeppelins
Moored above the house of sin
Leather guards won't let you in
(locked and loaded)

Deep within the underground
The violent heart of a violet sound
Dreaming of stolen higher ground

Trading as the waters rise
Relentless sacrifice
To the golden idols
And freemarket gods
(as the waves come in)
In the year 2024
The tallyman at your door
Tax the poor to build a wall
Around the rich and save them all

From drowning

As the waters rise
Your future comes as no surprise
Track Name: London's Drowning
London's Drowning

Mind the gap

There's a wall of water coming up the strand
There's a wave of anger fowing through this land
Behind the barricades there's a violet sound
Pumping out of the underground
The night that london drowned

London's drowning ~ and the waves come in
And the waves come in ~ and the waves come in
Everyone fall down
London's drowning ~ and the waves come in
And the waves come in ~ and the waves come in
Everyone fall down

Well they took all your money ~ took it and spent it all
Called it capital investment ~ building a fucking wall

London's drowning ~ and the waves come in
And the waves come in ~ and the waves come in
Everyone falling down
London's drowning ~ and the waves come in
And the waves come in ~ and the waves come in
Everyone fall down now

And the rats are leaving ~ the fattest rats remain
King Canute in a business suit ~ circling the drain
And the money makers ~ and the movers and shakers
Wait for the very last minute ~ look out

London's drowning ~ everyone falls down
London's drowning ~ everyone falls down
London's drowning ~ watch the wall fall down
London's drowning ~ watch the rain pour down

London's drowning ~ in a sea of sin
London's drowning ~ and the karma kicks in
London's drowning ~ as the walls cave in
London's drowning ~ and so it begins

London's drowning ~ in a sea of sin
London's drowning ~ and so it begins

And the waves come in ~ and the waves come in
And the waves come in

London's drowning
Track Name: We Are All Gods III
We Are All Gods III

We are all gods

Ride the sun across the sky
This world will live or die
By our will
Ride the sun across the sky
This world will live or die
By our will, by our will

Does anybody here feel the same as me
Does anybody here think the same as me
Does anyone need the things I need
Does anyone out there feel like me
Does anybody here feel the same as me

We are all gods

It's all connected

You want to follow me
Down into the labyrinth
See the things that I see
Share the madness that I feel
You want to wake up
Smell the burning air
You may be alive but you're no longer living
You know that state of grace
And the nail is not forgiving

We are all gods

Some of us are circling, some of us are blind,
Some of us are angry and some of us are kind
Some of us are confused, some of us are dying,
Some of us don't care, we are all gods

We are all gods
Track Name: Road Of Bones
Road Of Bones

There'll be tears ~ we love to cry
Salt the earth so nothing grows inside ~ inside

There's a desert waiting for rain
Nothing grows ~ except the pain
Love lies bleeding ~ on the road of bones

In the distance the hills promise snow
Flowers heaped don't stop you'll never start
Every step breaks your heart

Another perfect day to die

There'll be tears ~ we love to cry
Another perfect day to die
Inside ~ inside

There's a maze of alleyways
But this can only go one way
We walk the line ~ on the road of bones

In the dust the girls write their names
With the boys ~ it remains ~ eternally
Forever ~ until it rains

No sleep, ~ a heart shaped wreath
Nothing worse than a bed of roses

Love will kill you
Every day is the day of the dead
Track Name: Discoboy Must Die
Ladies and gentlemen ~ and ladies.
Introducing to you
A night of delectable and spectacular entertainment
Will you cast your eyes upon the dancefloor
Will you give us your rapt and undivided attention?
Presenting to you ~ for one night only

Discoboy must die ~ on a Saturday night

In his crisp white suit
Discoboy's every inch the Shakespearian hero
Provoking jealousy and tragedy
With his funky groove ~ Rosie

As the red satin curtain falls
Discoboy hits the floor
A thousand deaths in the mirrorball
The crowd cry out they want more
Discoboy Must Die

Discoboy must die ~ on a Saturday night

And high in the gods of the ancient theatre
Now a discoteque ~ the demonic human lamprey
Focused a diabolic machine disguised as a spotlight
The deathray
His hatred for discoboy was all consuming
He lit him up
He's on fire!

As the glitterball spins
The light in his eyes goes dim
The wallflowers turn away and cry
Boo hoo ~ boo hoo

Discoboy must die ~ on a Saturday night
Track Name: Dress 4 U
Dress 4 U

I wore this dress 4 U
I knew you'd come
Same time every night
I'm standing here alone
I wore this dress 4 U
All 4 U
Just 4 U
I remember every time you called
I treasure every conversation
I'm waiting for your call
How could you make me wait so long
I wore this dress 4 U
All 4 U
Just 4 U
The gifts you sent don't satisfy
The parts of me that make you cry
You need the real thing so do I
And that is why
I wore this dress 4 U
You like it when i fight
Struggle bite get out the knife
You love the pure white dress you said
And now it's red
Now it's red
Track Name: Bottle Of Poison
Bottle Of Poison

You really shouldn't talk to me

Fear and loathing in Salt Lake City
Murder in Utah
I'm a bottle with a label on it
The label says poison
Poison
Committing suicide with a typewriter
Only a mescal worm could lie like her
Take it from me
Oh yeah
There's no antidote
There's no cure
Unless it's you
Take it from me
Poison
Oh
Yeah
I'm a bottle with a label on it
The label says poison

You really shouldn't talk to me
Neither should I
Track Name: My Demons
My Demons

From the corner of my eye ~ from the corner of my eye
From the corner of my eye ~ from the corner of my eye

These are my demons ones that I've grown
These are my demons from seeds that I've sewn
These are my demons leave them alone
These are my demons go get your own
Get your own get your own

From the corner of my eye ~ from the corner of my eye

Black cats and spiders ~ whippings and apologies
Things with wings and tentacles lining up to follow me
Look who's coming through the floor
A mile wide and an inch deep
We've seen you before ~ another promise that I failed to keep

These are my demons ones that I've grown
These are my demons from seeds that I've sewn
These are my demons leave them alone
These are my demons go get your own get your own
Get your own get your own get your own get your own

Sharks in the shadows ~ friends in the light
Wriggling fish in angel delight
The steeple beasts are climbing down
Lock up your thoughts we're comin' to town

Demons ~ demons ~ demons ~ demons

Bitter pills and sweet sweet poison
Powders and plants and asteroids
All the wrong books all the wrong choices
Lack of allegiance from my toys

From the corner of my eye ~ from the corner of my eye

Demons ~ demons ~ demons ~ demons

(extra verse ~
Alcohol chocolate and nicotine
Caffeine monsters and a sex machine
Bankrupt clowns and tribute bands
Facebook fakes and final demands)
