VERSE This earth can be a hard place to live When authority decides to confiscate what you once chose to give And labels your anger: "madness" No, they want to lock your ass away... CHORUS I know you wish the world and everybody in it ill But this is the one time you can't give in to what you feel I'm your doctor and I've got the 'script' for you First, do no harm--- that's this M.D.'s golden rule Peace Pill © by Manley.

Turn Of The Century notes:

When I finally left the house on Jensen Street in Mesa, Arizona (because my landlord, Mr. Harold, sold it out from under me), my new friend ralo (who says she loves me but hasn’t called since I moved into the new place she is about to suggest) suggests that I move into this “great” house with a 24-track recording studio in the basement, fenced in backyard for Spenser (my dog and only remaining family member), cable, workshop, garage, grill and vent inside the house, and... well, you get the idea. Okay, one more. Swear to God, the custom-built, three-room dog house in the side yard was at one time air-conditioned... “$250 a month, plus you get access to the studio when it’s not in use! You should do an album there...” is how ralo had concluded her pitch.

Turn Of The Century is that album, the first that I put together after Cut To The Chase came to an end. It was recorded in the basement of the Jed Clampett house [see the notes for Blood's Straight Outta The Desert, here on the bandcamp site] in Chandler, AZ.


Hope you dig it, like I do...
