about

Part of the 2012 RPM Challenge. A sexy new project. The first Sad Tax album!

Steve Haley of 365DaysofAlbums says:
“Red Pearl Mountain” is a pleasure to listen to. Kicking things off with the organ driven anthem “Everybody’s gonna have fun,” the album quickly shifts directions to snippets of what sound like streets and traffic, and on to instrumental soundscapes.I also have to mention that no one titles a song like Pat, with “The beach smells like obscenity” and “A young virginal captain’s boy has an unsavory journey” being just a couple of examples.
Comparable to no one, Mr. Canning has delivered another magnificent piece of musical art."

Track Name: Everybody's gonna have fun
Everybody’s gonna have fun
Everybody’s gonna get some
And everybody’s crazy

Everybody’s gonna have fun
Everybody’s gonna get some
And everybody’s crazy

Don’t think that you can leave babe
don’t you ever leave the king of goodtimes

Everybody’s gonna have fun

Don’t be so cruel to me babe
don’t you wanna bring this love together

Everybody’s gonna have fun
Everybody’s gonna get some

Don’t wanna see tomorrow
Don’t wanna steal or borrow
Don’t wanna heal my sorrow
Don’t wanna see tomorrow

Everybody’s gonna have fun
Everybody’s gonna get some
And everybody’s crazy

Everybody’s gonna have fun
Everybody’s gonna get some
And everybody’s crazy

Everybody’s gonna have fun

Don’t be so cruel to me babe
Gonna get myself two lovers

Everybody’s gonna have fun

Don’t try to hate me baby
Don’t want the world to save me
Don’t you dare try to shave me
Or you don’t you get a gift bag
Everybody’s gonna have fun
Everybody’s gonna get some
And everybody’s crazy
Track Name: Sally
Sally hides under the table
Sally tries hard not to cry
the bottles are broken, the stench of a fire, her dad’s legs tied up with electrical wire
as the blood gushes out from a hole in his neck he tries to call out but he fails to make a sound

Sally holds tight to a green shard of glass
the edges cut into her palm
she kneels staring onto the heels of the man who is naked from the waist down

The man strides the length of the kitchen
he is oiled he is covered in blood
in his hand is loop of butchering wire in his mouth is an old paper bag I don’t wanna know

he is shaking his fingers in the air
he is cleaning the sweat off his brow
he is turning himself to the opposite wall
Sally decides that the moment is now
she is grinding her teeth as she slides from beneath
she creeps to his back and she flies
and she flies
Track Name: Landmine
Head to the ground Low Low Low low
don’t make a sound low low low low
well you can pray low low low low
keep what you say low low low low

Landmine landmine

The way I feel low low low low
a blade of steel in low low low low
and in the wind it blow blow blow blows
it’s here again low low low low

Landmine landmine

Fall in low low low low
just fall in low low low low
And I can see you low low low low
and where you’ve spread too all draped in shadow

Landmine landmine landmine landmine
Track Name: What do I gotta know?
You got to know in your heart I'm your....
Track Name: The beach smells like obscenity
in a mid summer night
in a mid summer night
what has gone wrong? the sand at my feet
spreads through the town, through my squishy fingers
it sifts to the ground and lives in my eyes
oh the night hangs in a cage
where it stays unmoving and unnoticed for days
til the stench hits your lungs
and you crash like a wave on the beach
and you lay there choking your breath out of reach
with my hand on your breast
as I try to make your heart start to beat
the birds start to scream to the moon
its untrue, untrue
it’s untrue untrue
I start to go home
like a stone cast out into the waves
the shifting wind blows into my face
and it gets in my eye
Track Name: Typical gambling metaphor
What’s a night?
it isn’t much to see.
Are you surprised
that it don’t bother me?
my hand is shit
but I have much to gain
by not folding it
and if you want to
I could give you one more game
I won’t play the same
and if you want to
I could play you once again
but you’ll never win
What’s a life?
it isn’t much to lose
Are you surprised
you don’t get to choose
how much you bet
or when you show your hand?
that’s how we play in here
There’s no rule in the guide
thatl’ll let you go free
but if you want to
I could let you win this round
but I won’t go down
and if you want to
I could read what’s in the guide
just sit by my side

and if you want to
I would love to give you more
then a simple chore
and if you want to
I would love you even more
then I did before
what’s a love?
It isn’t much to keep
in your heart
but it isn’t cheap
you lose the pot
if you don’t play the game
so don’t give up
Track Name: My girlfriend was a lifeguard
This rain has drowned out every bird in sight, in flight
And it’s never stopped for a second of our lives
00000ooooo our lives

When this river starts to wander
and raise it’s banks above my eyes
my feet will scrape along it’s bottom
and I will jump to stay alive
alive alive
ooooooo alive

and just when I believe it’s over
and the water starts to fill my chest
I feel your arms pull tight around me
and drag me to another breath
of life
