about

Ainsley Reed & The Rat Runners Canberra, Australia

Ainsley Reed and The Rat Runners have been putting the 'intergenerational' into pseudonymous genteel artistic poverty for a couple of years now. They earnestly hope you enjoy their over-written and under-rehearsed hyphen-pop nuggets.

Track Name: In Every Lake a Monster
In every lake a monster
Every night they follow you down
While everyone's watching TV
Slimy sucking steps, you can hear the sound

The hollowed-out centres of cities of ice
In the hollowed-out centres of cities of ice

It sleeps in Burley Griffin
Ginninderra has one too
The South is not neglected
In Tuggeranong it's watching you

The hollowed-out centres of cities of ice
In the hollowed-out centres of cities of ice

In every lake a monster
Every night they follow you down
While everyone's watching TV
Slimy sucking steps, you can hear the sound
Track Name: Stone Spacecraft
Smoke the bones of the astronaut gods
Bring a revolution to the people of the swamp
Beneath the pyramids and moons they are talking of love

You hear them talking all around the world
In the moment of destiny their plans are unfurled
Hear them speak ancient tongues beneath the new-born sun

And if it's all the same to you
I've got a job to do
Join a stone spacecraft
And its midnight crew

Taking downers in Hackett
'Cause you couldn't hack it in Downer
Wondering what's on in Dickson
While they're getting their dicks in in Watson

Spirits like smoke through your graveyard teeth
White clay facepaint out in the street
I've got lost time and I know you're the thief

And if it's all the same to you
I've got a job to do
Join a stone spacecraft
And its midnight crew

Taking downers in Hackett
'Cause you couldn't hack it in Downer
Wondering what's on in Dickson
While they're getting their dicks in in Watson
Track Name: Poor Bird
Poor bird
Picking at a crust
Poor bird
Picking at a crust
Too scared to enjoy it
Too hungry to live in distrust

When I first met you, Lord,
I was so in need
When I first met you, Lord,
I was so in need
You were like an open book
I did not know how to read

Let it bleed
Like blood from a stone
Let it bleed
Like blood from a stone
I've had enough of this party, Lord,
I'm goin' home
Track Name: The Flex Farmers
I am Figure
She is Ground
Laid out before me
Like a burial mound
The smell of wet dirt
As I plow her earth
With my iron tool
So there's no fairies around

It was a major fuckup
It was badly scoped
An Access database
Was never gonna cope
The FAS might lose face
Cue death-march in rose-specs
But that's OK
It was great for my flex

Well baby, don't you know that it's all the same
Just gonna record my time right here, right against my name (howls madly)
