ASTRID and the KILLER PENGUIN

The 3-song debut from Boolean Knife is now available!

ANTARCTICA

she palms a star map
tougher than the land
touching where blue meets white
tame the flipper man

ten feet tall by sea
razor tooth nightmare
strayed from its rookery
bloodied empire bare

at the bottom of the world you can't stop looking down
she team carbon squeeze follows the prints left in the ground

he hides under covers
under the stars
he hides under tables
hides out in the bars

she'll smoke him out with stories
she'll smoke him out with a gun
she'll smoke him out with treasure
she'll smoke him out with love

at the bottom of the world you can't stop looking down
she team carbon squeeze follows the prints in frozen ground

FIFTY NORTH

under the sidewalk
the water mains burst
gushing emoticons in reverse

and it's a bullfight- outright
for circuitry new
be it by fair fight or not quite
it's all I can do

can't stop the pictures in my head
diffuse the bomb ticking beneath my bed

solder the lines
my eyes are burning bright
catch the fifty north
toward the light

and it's a bullfight- outright
for circuitry new
be it by fair fight or not quite
I'm pushing it through

can't stop the pictures in my head
diffuse the bomb ticking beneath my bed
need to rewire the pathways Astrid said
now that the bastard bird is dead

can't stop the pictures in my head
can't stop the pictures in my head

THE VISITOR

what a funny planet
Astrid pokes over her root beer float

is that the way you have it?
sad old folks
that's not the way we left it

turn away for a sec- well that's it
beg a second chance- enhance it
run the routine through
you finish what you do

turn away for a sec- well that's it
beg a second chance- enhance it
is all that that can do
run your old program through?

what a funny planet
Astrid pokes
and before she can laugh
she's got me on the ropes

can't say it doesn't matter
eternal mope
that's not for lack of ladders

look at me for a sec- and face it
here's your second chance- embrace it
run a routine through
clean your memory new

look at me for a sec- and face it
here's your second chance- embrace it
believe in what you do
run your new program through

darker dreams and penguin bites
rocked your whole world into night
like a bad thumbdrive gave you a ride
split you in two
