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?)

Of Roses 04:17
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

Tokyo Flow 05:38
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

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?

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?

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

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

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

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

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

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

My Demons 04:35
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)

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.
