PARIAH 04:52
PARIAH I go to work I got bills to pay Some people sit around Bitching all day Don't try to moralise And put me in my place I ain't got no truck with that Come say it to my face You might not like some things I might have done But I don't fuck with your life And it don't look like much fun It ain't about the ego or the greed Try thinking what you want Might not be what you need Yeah It's immaterial What I think you done to me It's inconceivable That you can't see what I see It's over baby I ain't got time to cry You won't admit it But you hung me out to dry Now I'm the pariah Cast out to the shadows Pariah Though what I said was true Denyer You Hung me out to dry Pariah But I ain't got time to cry No i aint got time to cry Im all about just getting through my day when i get home at night the angers here to stay i try to moderate and drown it out with wine but my intolerance has pushed me to the line you might not think what i say should be heard but where i come from i take hostages as words it aint about the ego or the greed you thought you figured me but you just sowed another seed Now I'm the pariah Cast out to the shadows Pariah Though what I said was true DenIer You Hung me out to dry Pariah But I ain't got time to cry No i aint got time to cry

ANGEL DUST 03:20
ANGEL DUST written by GIL SCOT HERON He was groovin' And that was when he coulda sworn The room was movin' But that was only in his mind He was sailin' He never really seemed to notice Vision failin' 'Cause that was all part of the high Sweat was pourin' He couldn't take it The room was exploding He might not make it. Angel Dust Please, children would you listen. Angel Dust Just ain't where it's at. Angel Dust You won't remember what you're Missin', but down some dead end streets There ain't no turnin' back. They were standin' Everybody in a circle The whole family Listening to the preacher's words Sis was cryin' She alone held all the secrets 'Bout his dyin' Tears fallin' to earth Maybe her fault He was so trusting God only knew why They was dustin'! Angel Dust Please children would you listen. Angel Dust Just ain't where it's at. Angel Dust You won't remember what you're Missin', but down some dead end streets There ain't no turnin' back.

FIGHT TONIGHT dark times  People get ready Drawing up your Kill Lists Counting all your enemies Too late to Mind your own business The last stand  Can I get a witness ? It's a fight tonight Situation We got money to burn Hold tight Suffer indecision Flip flopping  Lying politicians Snap crackle Pop goes the weasel Times up Social amnesia fight tonight Situation We got money to burn It's a fight tonight Situation We got money to burn  Deep down  There's no imagination So What's new? No time for hesitation Canned laughter Ringing through your eardrums  The cold finger points Extermination  It's a fight tonight situation We got money to burn It's a fight tonight Situation We got money to burn

about

This is Gil De Ray’s 8th album. Under the influence of Suicide, Voodootron blends electronic production with raw psychedelia and Stooges-style existential indignation.
The album is produced in collaboration with the Helsinki-based Parisian musician, Benjamin Goursot and is accompanied with a post-apocalyptic graphic novel tale by Gil which was inspired by the songs.
The story is about psychedelics saving the world, inspired by the work of Terence McKenna and experiments with the sacred mushroom.
This is the soundtrack.

The artwork was made by Martin Kingdom and adorns the cover of the Book and the CD
The book is very limited and is available with a CD of the album and a free download.
Or you can buy the download separately if you're that way inclined.

Extra special thanks to Kirsty Allison, Benjamin Goursot, Mikey Buckley, Martin Kingdom, Sean Daley, Pat Whelan and David Erdos.
