about

The Retinal Circus Birmingham, UK

Bored with all of these run o' the mill la-de-bloomin-da songs about girls and relationships?
Then you've come to the right place!.. Here we only deal with shapes, platonic relationships with time keeping devices, spaniards with fantastic taches', seahorses suspended in the vacuum of space, nebulae, Gregorian calendars and an analysis of the human race with the conclusion we are all APES.. ETC ... more

Track Name: Retinal Circus INC - Quiver (Live At Re-Con Malvern March 2013)
I'm unsure
That this pain in my life can reassure this new soul
From distant shores
Catch this orb let it flicker, let it crackle in your palm

From seas they scurry forth those bipeds of the hour
Surface area bacterium, bacteria
And so we carry on and endeavor to uncover
One more area, one more area, left to explore
I'm unsure

That this memory of life can so often re-assure
And sure for the rough to thrive then the smooth must be endured

Still un-
sure!
Like two birds, instinctively flirting on due course
Then free fall
ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba bah
Caught on thermals of intrigue, it takes a hand and we soar

From seas they scurry forth the bipeds of the hour
Surface area bacterium, bacteria
And so we carry on upon a quiver of endeavor
One more area, one more area, left to explore
I'm unsure

Nothing but a bunch of greedy
Pentadactyl. Pentadactyls
Nothing but a bunch of greedy
Pentadactyl, Pentadactyl
Nothing but a bunch of greasy

Apes (LOTS)
Lying and scheming and thieving ah' dreaming
They're apes apes apes apes
Rolling around and throwing our feces
We're apes, apes, apes, APES!
Track Name: Schiphol Paranoia (Live At Boozestock Dec 2009)
Back to square one again
By the clearing that we've made
With these bare hands
Feel blessed in the evening
Or rest upon the stony ground

With free outlook means
Cometh'
Several spirited leaps

Old but ebbing light
Illuminates ice cold horizons
Initiate the waking dream

I'm a the restless soul
I'm a restless soul
I've served all I've taught
Or so I'm sincerely told

Upon the passages of time
Hazard a navigated guess
From the horizontal leap
To the vertical abyss

Old but ebbing light
Illuminates harsh cold horizons
Initiate the waking dream

I'm a the restless soul
I'm a restless soul
I've served all I've taught
Or so I'm sincerely told

Old but ebbing light
Illuminates harsh cold horizons
Initiate the waking dream
Track Name: Dregs (Live @ Katie's Fest Katie Fitzgeralds 2010)
He is: the dregs of society
A once flowing decanter
Of philosophy
The glass was half full but now it's just residue
Staring at the rosy pools of port
He's options are few
--
What has value to you means nothing to me
Not that I would choose to tread or step upon your saviors feet
--
Slipped on another grain at the rumor mill
It's authenticity I have questioned well
Watch the meticulous macabre display
Points slowly ground away
Oh what else can you do
With these bones of contention?
--
You can siphon out the sum of all your parts
But it's best to embrace all your light
And all your dark
--
Ooo
Track Name: This Machine Kills Zombies (Live @ The Bridge Inn 2014)
And they say disease will wash it all away
Well with baited breath I hope and pray
For the coming dawn of Zee day
Zombies RISE around the world
Zombies BORN around the world

Watch them rise on the eastern tides
They'll be crawling up
Slowly waking up
Zombies SPAWN around the world
Zombies CRAWL around the world

And they head to Lush to huff bath salts & your naked now and that's all your fault
Zombies STREAK around the world
Zombies STRIKE around the world

And the autopsy or so I'm told
Says they found four holes shot in this poor soul
Zombies SHOT around the world
Zombies WATCH it all unfold

They'll be hungry now for a little snack
On the goggle box lodged behind your back
Zombies CHOMPIN round the world
Zombies FEAST around the world

Even in these times in the foreign climes
Some folk are prone to wine and dine
On the flesh and blood of mankind
Zombies CHOMP around the world
Zombies FEAST around the world

I'm sure you can agree there's irony
In a nation waiting patiently
For another reported fatality
It strikes a fresh nerve of sensationalism
Shopping mall consumerism
WHILST DRUG CULTURE IS DEHUMANIZED
IN THE BLOOD SHOT TWISTED RIGHT WING EYES

Of the zombies all around the world
Zombies crawling round the world
Zombies shop around the world
WHILE THE ZOMBIES SEEM TO RUN THE WORLD
Track Name: Nebulae (BRIDGE F.M Winter 2010 FEAT. JJ MURRAY)
I will build a cloister to house clustered lonesome stars
A ultimatum at first
This constellation's moving slowly
Growing to absorb imperfections from the source
This constantly gnaws upon, collective consciousness

In altered states, with every wake of breath
A star dies in twilight, illumination
The density of space, sighs upon our lives
These scenes could be evening gifts of significant repeat

Nebula
Eskimo nebula
This constellations moving slowly
Eskimo nebula

With half mass rejoice
Confront the wall-less noise
A silent applause
Just obligatory remorse

Light eats the barrier of dark
A twisting cluster of twilight is birthed into the inky void

--

Answers lie within this constellation moving slowly
Inner-space foresees Hubble revealed mysteries
