about

"I Keep Dreaming About You is a succession of strange splendours providing the velvet glove around the clenched fist of The Soap Company’s urgently relevant lyrical concerns.
Ingeniously stitched-together keys with a melodic expertise eschewed by so many other synth-pop protagonists in favour of vacuous catwalk posturing. Mesmerising" *****

Another Long Trip Along Molasses Mile.
The Mildew Green, Of The Night Vision.
Just Queuing Up, To Make An Incision.

Another Rat Who Chose To Join The Line.

There’s A Piss Stained Alley By The Betting Shop.
A Silence So Loud It Makes Your Ears Go Pop.
And You’re Skating Along...On A Chicken Bone Carpet.
The Grime And The Grease, So Dank And So Dark It’s...
...Like A Front Row Seat At A Horror Film.
The One Where The Heroine Dies.
There’s A Gene Apart From A Fox And A Dog.
Under The Hood I See The Yellow Eyes.

Bad Times...
Everybody Has Bad Times...

The Water’s Just Fine.
This Face Is My Passport, Oh, American Glow.

And I Keep On The Move.
My Roots Are My Shoes.
I’m Not Frozen In Time.
Smoke A Strand Or Live, The American Glow.

I Keep Dreaming About You, Whenever I Sleep.
It’s Almost Like You’re Really Here.
You’re A Guardian Angel, Dressed In Black
You’re Everything That I Hold Dear
Do I Miss The Smile Of My Family?
Or The Ones That Used To Care For Me?
But It’s So Long Ago, And There’s No Details
Memories Like A Vapour Trail

Bring. Love. Even. A. Kiss.

Standing Up There With A Drink In My Hand.
I Always Thought I’d End It Like That.
All It Takes Is A Wing And A Prayer.
I’ve Got Fly To Stop This Attack.
So I’m High On High, Not High And Dry.
Both A Million Miles Away.
I’m So Damn Lucky I’ve Got Vertigo
May Live To See The Very Next Day.

Bring. Love. Even. A. Kiss.
Bring. Love. Even. A. Kiss.

This Virtual Life Is Like A Virtual Bomb.
A Million Broken Thoughts An Hour.
Need To Retire, Go Back To The Land.
What’s The Use Of A Virtual Flower?

So...

Bring. Love. Even. A. Kiss.
Bring. Love. Even. A. Kiss.
Bring. Love. Even. A. Kiss.
Bring. Love. Even. A. Kiss.

Put Your Hand In The Sky
And Pull Down A Cloud
I’m Gonna Be Up There Baby
You’re Gonna Feel Me Baby

It Frees Our Ambitions.

Thought I Caught You Blinking...
Maybe One Last Time.
Are You Actually Alive?

I Need To Check Your Pulse...
For The Vital Signs.
Are You Actually Alive?

So What I Say Kills?
It Makes The Mob Genocidal.
The Ghetto’s The Only Thing They Care To Know.

So Now I’ll Take Home My Inventions.
And My Industry And Wisdom.
I’ll Crash Land Back To The Sand.
Like A Rogue Satelite.

Thought I Caught You Blinking...
Maybe One Last Time.
Are You Actually Alive?

I Need To Check Your Pulse...
For The Vital Signs.
Are You Actually Alive?

Slowly Picking Fruit.
Wondering, Where All The Juice Is.

The Sapphire Tree’s Alive.
The Purple Lawn Is Full Of Fire.
Silver Berry Blossoms Fill My Mouth.

The Disarray’s All Gone.
Silence Is The Number One.
I’m Standing Here.
But It’s More Like Floating.

I’m Cherry Coconut.
I’m Shaking Off Pure Platinum.
There’s Never Any Poison.
Once You’re Falling.

I Live Up There, I’m Out Of The Way.
This Golden Phase Is Here To Stay.
You’re A Work Of Art You Are, My Pretty Baby.

I Know Exactly What You See.
A Diagram Of A Younger Me.
Preserved In Amber, That’s Science Baby.

You’ve Been Sent To Put Me In A Trance.
So Let Me Tell You In Advance.
That I’m Under, Over, Always, Nearly Out.

The Sky, The Sea, The Moon And Sand.
I’m Pretty Sure All This Was Planned.
Bye Oceania, Now We Go Higher.

Eight Hundred Something Metres
Play Tennis In The Sky
This Real Estate Won’t Sell Itself
And Oil Is Running Dry
The Stone Age Futurism.
This Holo Pyramid.
It’s Milton Friedman’s Beach Club.
I Hope I Get The Gig.

Aah Aah Ahh…

Expect A Hundred Flashes.
For Showing Off Some Skin
Jewels And Dirt Are Side By Side
Emirati Sin
Dining With The Beckhams
Drinking In Your Room
The Quality Of Merchandise
Feel This Desert Bloom

Aah Aah Ahh…

Before It’s Cut Off.
Before It’s Blown...Off.

Why Would Anyone Vote For These?
Criminals.
Animals.
Gangsters.
Amoeba.

The Cool Things You See In The Movies.
It’s All Coming True.
Children Of Men.
YOU Pay Money To Be THEIR Billboard
No Blank Space Is Left Unfucked.

This Song Is Sponsored By Nobody
But Somehow It Still Exists.

And I Can See Into The Future.
You Can Do It Too
But You’re Too Busy Tweeting

I’ll Burn The Earth.
You Can Have It All
I’ll Live Under The Sea.
Just To Get Away From You.

You’re A Baby With A New Tooth.
You Think We Must All Be Equal
But You Make Sure You Are More Equal Than Others.

Our Name Is Mercedes Benzedrine
And We Can See Into The Future.
We Are An Army.
We Have No Rules.

Your Slavery Of Everything Good.
WILL Stop.
You Are “The Establishment”
