Time Machine 03:48
Time Machine Take me back to the night When it all slid into place First time that I got a taste of paradise Take me back to the days That haunt me everywhere When regret, sorrow and fear were far from mind Time Machine I want a Time Machine Built out of souvenirs And broken hearts Pull me back from the edge From staring into the depths Where the dark mirror reflects the universe Take me back to the start Relive how it began Before we parted and ran our different ways Time Machine I want a Time Machine Built out of souvenirs And broken hearts Time Machine I need a Time Machine To go retrieve the things That I have lost Take me back in time Take me back to the night When it all slid into place First time that I got to taste of paradise Time Machine I’ll build a Time Machine From all our souvenirs And broken hearts

Every Lie 03:42
Every Lie Look who’s come to spout his lies And craves your full attention A jealous demagogue Whose scapegoats always get a mention Acolytes believing Any crap that he can feed them Every lie Claiming god’s authority Suing fact as libel Denying all the evidence While swearing on the Bible Acolytes believing Any trash that he can spiel them Every lie Every Lie, Every Lie Deny the truth – believe in every lie Every lie, Every Lie Deny the truth - believe in every lie Stupid Nazi thugs hang out with Tweedy Brexit gammon Blonde Blimps mainline hatred To the storm troopers of mammon Acolytes believing Any crap that they can feed them Every lie From sink estate to village green To inner city boozer Xenophobes are rising Words and actions getting bolder Acolytes believing All the crap that has been spieled them Every lie Every lie, Every lie Deny the truth – believe in every lie Every lie, Every lie Deny the truth and repeat every lie

Get Clear 03:37
Get Clear Don’t look down Now that you’re flying away Slip that crowd And try to forget what they say It cannot be wrong To shake off the dust of a place So wrong. So long Now you are rising And spreading your wings into space Don’t be scared It’s perfect that you get away Never fear Be glad that you didn’t delay Those folk planned To keep you tied into their lies You cut and you ran No more daydreaming Now you are leaving It’s easy to see that They were a waste of your time Don’t look back You’ll turn to a pillar of brine Straight ahead Pay no regard to their whining When they tried To audit you into their schemes Something snapped Now you are free You see they were never your kind 

about

Mars won't save us. Mars has no air.

The 4 track 'Mars EP' by The Room in the Wood comprises three new songs and an extra track from their debut album released earlier this year.
Lead track 'Mars (Won’t Save Us)' is a riff-based psyche rocker focussed on the foolishness of Elon Musk’s ideas about colonising the Red Planet. 'No green there and no blue there, just yellow and red there.' It is accompanied by a psychedelic video composition by ex-Send No Flowers and Moongoose collaborator Mark Jordan.
'Time Machine', a another vaguely SF rumination, is a pop classic from The Room in the Wood album and will be accompanied by a video of the band shot, edited and 'artified' by Marco Cesare who made videos for luminaries such as Shack, Holly Johnson and the Blow Monkeys back in the 80s.
'Every Lie' is a bluesy, countrified stomper bemoaning the rise of the populist right, and inspired by the late great Johnny Cash. ‘Stupid Nazi thugs hang out with tweedy Brexit gammon and blonde blimps mainline hatred to the storm troopers of mammon.'
And 'Get Clear' is a Spanish guitar tinged ballad extolling the virtues of escaping cult thinking.
