Pre Production Begins – The Cleft Way “Love Junkies” Album

Posted on April 15, 2013

REB Records is starting prep on the next production, well sort of. Prep started about 3 years ago, but the basic songs are being geared up for the production stage! Below is a draft of the working lyrics (which may or may not be change). Frank Libbe, Satya Graha’s original bass player who wrote “Oliver & The Dutchess” with B.B. Mayes contributes the music for this ethereal love gone wrong song. Those from Chicago (or into supernatural phenomenon) should be able to find some history mixed into the [true] story. Possibly a rough draft coming in the next couple weeks, as the final steps of the TEE albums come to a close.

“The Brimstone Ballet”

My marriage turned into a horror show
I ended up in Bachelor’s Grove
When Mary, a thumbing ghost of a chance
Asked if I knew how to ballroom dance

Dark and dismal a crooked plie’
This wasn’t a dance but The Brimstone Ballet
Sensually sinister & hard to resist
Her Grand Jete and its splits

She brought me to life when I needed it most
Showed me another side to my ghosts
Music and drink at an Abbey Pub
What I called friends well she called it love

Dark and dismal a crooked plie’
This wasn’t a dance but The Brimstone Ballet
Sensually sinister & hard to resist
Her Grand Jete and its splits

I wanted her youth and a little pleasure
She wanted love with no bounds or measure
So much for our dance light and airy
When she began to lead it all turned scary

She wouldn’t take no for answer
She said I was much more than a dancer
She said we were connected souls
That’s why I’m hitchin’ back to the grove
Thanks for stopping and dropping me home
If you see Mary walking keep driving alone
