about

The Rainbow EP features a small collection of more commercial-sounding songs laced with Kitten Magician’s trademark eccentricity. From a jazzy tune about a female truck driver to an upbeat, danceable song about the apocalypse, this seven-track EP really has something for everyone.

Track Name: Goddess of the Rainbow
Poppies, roses, daffodils
Clovers, bluebells, violets
It is she who makes them grow
She is goddess of the rainbow

Goddess, help me out
All alone and I’m in doubt
Help me put some meaning in my life
Goddess, hear me out
I need inspiration now
Chase away the gray that’s in my mind

When I’m feeling insecure
I can always call on her
On her wings I raise my voice
Show the world that I’ve made my choice

Goddess, spread the word
Tell the people what you’ve heard
We will rule the world, just you and I
Bring me power and fame
Justify the name I’ve changed
Tell me that I’m gonna be all right

Come now to my side
And together we will shine
We will rule until the end of time
Bring me power and fame
Justify the name I’ve changed
Now I know I’m gonna be all right
Track Name: The Story of Laurie
This is the story
of a woman named Laurie
It's a little bit long
It's a little bit gory
There ain't much sex
Or much amore
So if you're still with me
Let me tell you 'bout Laurie

She drove a truck
In the United States
The hours were long but
The work was fast paced
A bladder of steel
Meant she was never late
They said that she could lift
A five hundred pound crate

One day while she was haulin'
Ass to San Fran
She met a little man
by the name of Stan
He said, "Oi, totty,
Come and get with the plan"
So Laurie moved her enterprise
To Engerland

Laurie drives a lorry
Laurie drives a lorry
Laurie drives a lorry
Laurie drives a lorry

Now that her tractor trailer
Had become a lorry
She didn't haul coffee
She only hauled tea
She drove that thing
To Milan and Paris
And the Brits were as happy
As a Brit can be

Laurie drives a lorry
Laurie drives a lorry
Laurie drives a lorry
Laurie drives a lorry

One night while she was carrying
A load of fresh fruit
She came upon a banger
Driven by an old coot
He said "Bloody piece o' shite
Broke down en route.
Won't you let a feller
Put his cargo in yer boot?"

She pulled out a banana
She held it in her hand-a
She shouted "Stop or I'll shoot!

If you're looking for a shag
I'll have you know I ain't no slag
Don't work for no house of ill repute"

Laurie drove the lorry
Laurie drove the lorry
Laurie drove the lorry
Laurie drove the lorry away

One day when she was eighty
And every kind of achey
She realized her mistakey with a yuk
Her heart was filled with shame-a
For she hadn't known the name-a
Of a fundamental area of her truck

Though wizened, old and hoary
So mortified was Laurie
She moved back to the good old USA
Before someone could jail her
She drove that tractor trailer
Into the Frisco Bay

Laurie drove a lorry
Laurie drove a lorry
Laurie drove a lorry
But she don't drive a lorry no more
Track Name: Tidal Wave
Time and time again I always make this mistake
Climb up to the top only to fall the next day
Try to do it different but I can't seem to change
Some bad habits are just too hard to break

And it's time that I stopped hoping
The currents of the ocean
Will ever just let me be
A tidal wave is rising
So I'll say my goodbyes and
Let it take me out to sea

I wish that you could see that I have love in my heart
Never meant to hurt you or to tear you apart
If I'd've seen it coming I'd've stopped at the start
Instead of becoming one with the dark

And it's time that I stopped hoping
That this life I've chosen
Will go back how it used to be
A tidal wave is rising
So I'll say my goodbyes and
Let it take me out to sea

Now I'm on a highway with no exit in sight
I'm not doing wrong, but then I'm not doing right
How'm I supposed to wisen up and see the light
When all I want to do is make it through the night

And it's time that I stopped hoping
The currents of the ocean
Will ever just let me be
A tidal wave is rising
So I'll say my goodbyes and
Let it take me out to sea
(x2)
Track Name: Blind Ambition
So now we march into the cold abyss of the unknown
We give our lovers one last kiss and leave behind our home
We follow proper protocol
With nothing left to fear at all
We're climbing over this, the highest wall

If you don't hear from me rest assured that I'm okay
My power in the universe is growing by the day
And if you ever see me it's not hard to realize
A light has gone out in my eyes

So we travel through a moonless night to reach the sea
Where there should be light and heat there's only entropy
And in our hearts a hole has grown
It leaves us hollow and alone
We're drifting far from all we've ever known

If you don't hear from me rest assured that I'm okay
My power in the universe is growing by the day
And if you ever see me it's not hard to realize
A light has gone out in my eyes

We sail across the ocean just to reach a wall of glass
A permanent illusion through which life can never pass
We have no choice; we break it down
We'd rather crash and burn than drown
We leave our world in pieces all around

If you don't hear from me rest assured that I'm okay
My power in the universe is growing by the day
And if you ever see me it's not hard to recognize
A light has gone out in my eyes
Track Name: End of the World
All your daydreams fade into night
We'll disappear but we'll be all right
What's the matter, haven't you heard?
It's gonna be the end of the world

Say your goodbyes, no one will hear
Learn to let go of all that you fear
Don't bother planning famous last words
It's gonna be the end of the world

Every blue sky fades out to gray
Every fire burns out one day
Hearts are failing, vision is blurred
All is silent
End of the world
Track Name: Blue Jay Blues (Demo)
Summer's at an end
It's time to make my decision again
Where to go, what to do
I've got the blue jay blues

Sometimes I wanna stay home
Other times I wanna get out
Sometimes I'm content not to know
What my life is about
But still I

Wish I could select
A course of action I knew to be correct
Wish I could foresee
What the winter will bring

Sometimes it's bitterly cold
Other times it's comfortably cool
Should I fly south or stay north
There's just one thing of which I'm sure
And that is

Summer's at an end
It's time to make my decision again
Where to go, what to do
I've got the blue jay blues
