As a solo artist, Colborne has released a range of recordings, from emotive acoustic music to electro-rock anthems. His knack for powerful riffery and fearless lyrics makes for a truly exciting catalogue of releases. ... more

Track Name: Aquarius
[spoken] Being the most forward thinking of all the signs of the zodiac, every Aquarian is a relentless eccentric, a time bomb of brave new ideas, just waiting to explode onto the rest of the world...

Aquarius!
Break the mould
They'll try and force you in
Break the mould!

Aquarius
Stand your ground
They'll try and drag you down
Oh won't you please stand your ground

The power in my star
Lies in the knowledge I bear
Drink from it
No, the answers are not far
Bathe in the knowledge I bear
Cleanse your soul!
The knowledge I bear

Step out of the building
Feel the air on your skin
This situation is too small
For Aquarius
Step out of the building
Feel the air on your skin
This situation is too small
To contain Aquarius

The power in my star
Lies in the knowledge I bear
Drink from it
And the answers are not far
Bathe in the knowledge I bear
Cleanse your soul!
The knowledge I bear

Yeeeah!

Stand your ground! Aquarius
Stand tall! Aquarius
Stand your ground! Aquarius
Stand tall! Aquarius
Track Name: Promised Land
Yeah!
Just let yourself go
Just let yourself go

You see he spied a miniskirt
God damn he followed it all night
In his brand new expensive Levi's
FCUK t-shirt, nice and tight
And the sweat it stung his eyes
As he envisioned his young prize
When he spun her round and he met her gaze
He saw the whole world was in disguise

Every single one of you has a duty to perform tonight
I wanna see your darkest fears shaken from you like sweat
Children of Voodoo, you're safe in our arms
So let me tell you a little bit more about our friend, haha

The label on his bottle gave him the poise of a ladies man
And... made Venus rise in her, as he took her by the hand
And they danced a joyless hustle to every corporate sponsored song
And they closed their eyes and they prayed and begged,
From this whore house to be gone

I'm sick to death of hearing every single day
That you can weave yourself your own tale of star-crossed lovers
In only the time it will take you to buy a young lady a drink

So I'm gonna claim back my sexual freedom now
I'm gonna make a move now to have a love of my own
To share the most beautiful thing I can share
I'll make it on my own way, ain't no stories be being told here

Yeah!

Hallelujah
Sing Hallelujah
Sing Hallelujah
Sing Hallelujah!

1, 2, 3, 4...

I'll show you freedom now!
Yeah, something to believe in now!
Striding through that storm now!

And as we move into the new life hand in hand
We'll build the promised land
Yeah, the promised land
Track Name: Freud
Freud was right, it's all about sex!
The secret lust of a Britain repressed
Celibate girls dressed in prude etiquette
It's a sexual disguise that must be quickly undressed

Since Adam had Eve it's all been about sex
The silent cause of all human distress
People of the world wake up to your love
Coz true satisfaction doesn't come from above

Shackles minds in this frustrated nation
Kept cruelly in check by sexual deprivation
So swallow Snuffy's Voodoo viagra pill
We're gonna cure your fear of the ultimate thrill

Are you feeling lonely?
Then take my hand and trust in Freud
And if you're feeling empty
Well, let's let pleasure fill the void

Freud was right, it's all about sex!
The secret lust of a Britain repressed
Celibate girls dressed in prude etiquette
It's a sexual disguise that must be quickly undressed

Since Adam had Eve it's all been about sex
The silent cause of all human distress
People of the world wake up to your love
Coz true satisfaction doesn't come from above

Open your mind to this brand new ideal
Perhaps there's nothing taboo about how good it feels
So never hold it back, your desire is sacred
And you pulled all your friends so let's all get naked

Come on now!

Free yourself from your Calvin Kleins
That chastity built is a lock on your mind
And your mouth's still talking when it should be sucking
And tell me why am I singing when I could be f**king

Are you feeling lonely?
Then take my hand and trust in Freud
And if you're feeling empty
Well, let's let pleasure fill the void

[seductive break]

Yeah! Check it out people... here comes Dr Spanky on the my oh my!

Freud was right, it's all about sex!
The secret lust of a Britain repressed
Celibate girls dressed in prude etiquette
It's a sexual disguise that must be quickly undressed

Since Adam had Eve it's all been about sex
The silent cause of all human distress
People of the world wake up to your love
Coz true satisfaction doesn't come from above

People of the world wake up to your love
People of the world wake up to your love
People of the world wake up to your love
People of the world wake up to your love

People of the world wake up to your love
People of the world wake up to your love
People of the world wake up to your love
People of the world wake up to your love

Yeah!
Track Name: Doctor Doctor
Why must your motives be bound by the greed of the 21st century
Lurking in the shadows of your every activity
When you hold the scalpel I'm afraid of your motives
Am I just another target you must meet to boost your budget?

One percent here, and one percent there
It's gradually increasing not decreasing the fear
Statistics the disguise of society's demise
Figures on the gravestones at the end of our lives

Doctor, doctor, doctor, I'm trying to save a life
Oh, won't you please help me save a precious life?
Oh good doctor doctor, I'm trying to save a life
Oh, won't you please help me save a precious life?
I can't swallow this pill, it tastes of bitter deception

I feel the growing pain fed by the hand of the corporate monstrosity
Grinning in the dark, it gambles our lives away
Holding a cure so close but just out of reach
And licking up the profit in the stench and the reek

One victim more, another coin in your claws
The monster grows in size, it devours the law
It swallows you up when you first open your eyes
And the figure carves a gravestone waiting for you to die

Doctor, doctor, doctor, I'm trying to save a life
Oh, won't you please help me save a previous life?
Oh good doctor doctor, I'm trying to save a life
Oh, won't you please help me save a precious life?
I can't swallow this pill, it tastes of bitter deception

[instrumental break]

Doctor, doctor, doctor, I'm trying to save a life
Oh, won't you please help me save a previous life?
Oh good doctor doctor, I'm trying to save a life
Oh, won't you please help me save a precious life?
I can't swallow this pill, it tastes of bitter deception
