about

Just over a year ago I released "Starting Point", my debut album. I'll admit that it wasn't anything revolutionary, but it was a funny little novelty. The second album was more consistent, and almost what you might call "normal". This one, "What Are You Doing With The Moon?", is (rather unintentionally) a combination of both of those previous albums - the (vaguely) normal, and the absurd novelties. I must admit it has ended up quite significantly different to how I had originally expected it to be, what with my time being split between this album, my next album and the "Segregated Elephant" collaboration with my good friend Luke Michie [please listen to that one, by the way]. But why don't you go ahead and listen to it, lest you die of old age from my incessant babbling. Please enjoy!

If you follow the link to my YouTube channel, you can find a culmination of all my complete projects.

about

John Burnett UK

My music is for the sheer pleasure of the listener, be it my good self or anyone else in this whole darn world. It's inspiration is derived from everywhere and anywhere in my life, which encompasses everything I take in with the thirteen senses. I like books, music, art, food, vintage technology and foreign cultures; all of which, I hope, are reflected in my work. ... more

Track Name: Alarm Call
Good morning, It is another dreary day,
Your life is but an imprint on the floor of what you say

Good evening, would you like coffee while you wait?
The price is only five times more than any other place

Excuse me while I fend off this bear!

Good morning
Good evening
Track Name: Shimasu
Don't you know what you're living for?
'Cause I don't
Don't you know who that man is at your door?
'Cause I don't

Notice how the rain, it falls,
But does it really fall at all?

Don't you know how the clock goes 'round
All day long?

Notice how the rain, it falls,
But does it really fall at all?

Listen to me, sister,
You don't really have a clue how to cook
Gakko ni ikimasen
Ashita kohi o nomimasu

Notice how the rain, it falls,
But does it really fall at all?

Kino rajio o kikimashita
Ashita eiga o mimasu, mimasu
Ototoi kappukeki o tabemashita,
Mimashita, mimasen deshita

Notice how the rain, it falls,
But does it really fall at all?
Track Name: Sandscape
Do you remember when the sky rained down with fire?
It vanquished anything it found
This land, it once was green and lush with tree aplenty
But now we have but desert and sand

How the planet is wrought and taught and bought
And then it crumbles
This land of tropic weather and beauty, now gone with its people
It is but a sandscape
Track Name: What Are You Doing With The Moon?
Well, the rain was pounding on that fateful day,
And the cuckoo had run out of words to say,
But then I saw you and I wondered
"What are you doing with the moon?"

I spoke my thoughts, but you just stood there laughing loud,
I saw no reason to create a watchful crowd,
But still I hit you, and I said
"What are you doing with the moon?"
Track Name: You Let Me Down
You let me down,
When skies were grey
You let me down and then you had to go away

You let me down
You let me down
You let me down

Yeah
Track Name: Toothpick Cove
Long ago there were pirates a-three,
They would smuggle in gold, all their hearts full of glee
Year after year
Day after day
They would gather together,
And they would say

"Take me back to Toothpick Cove
"Where the weather is fine and the shores full of gold
"Take me back to Toothpick Cove
"With the riverside city of gold"

"Take me back to Toothpick Cove
"Where the weather is fine and the shores full of gold
"Take me back to Toothpick Cove
"With the riverside city of gold"

"Take me back to Toothpick Cove
"Where the weather is fine and the shores full of gold
"Take me back to Toothpick Cove
"With the riverside city of gold"

Year after year
Day after day
They would gather together,
And they would say

"Back to Toothpick Cove!
"Where the weather is fine and the shores full of gold
"Take me back to Toothpick Cove
"With the riverside city of gold"
Track Name: The Library
Have you been to the library where everybody lives?
Have you seen that hungry look in their eyes?
Do you know of that library where everybody lives?
Do you see its shadow up in the sky?

Do you go to that library where all the people live?
Do you creep over there in the night?
Do you sleep in that library where all the people live?
Do you read with them all through the night?

Which way's up?
Which way's down?
Where's the floor?
- I think it's outta sound
Which way's in?
Which way's out?
I JUST WANNA SHOUT!

Track Name: Raindrops
I didn't have time
To look over my shoulder
There wasn't the time,
And now I am older

The raindrops come down,
I start to get wet,
But I do not frown,
It isn't time yet
