What happens when something of extremely low value is sold to you by a smooth-talking snake oil salesman?

Written and performed by The Delivery System, 2018, for Corpus Misty Communications.

This is a track from the current Delivery System album 'If Only We Were Deaf'. I was (at the time) expermenting with far-micing the guitar amps in order to get a really, really trebly and dirty sound in the style of PIL's Metal Box. I've literally got the amps turned almost to the max, and the mic right at the other end of the studio here. This isn't something commonly done in modern rock, which now tends to favour a deep, rich basso guitar. I've never been a big one for following the trends.
moving out stopped the clocks on time
got better reception in my mind
something more reliable, consumable, and pliable
We're gonna have a wrecking ball tonight

We're gonna have a wrecking ball tonight.

If you follow the instructions you'll go blind
If you follow the instructions you'll go blind
If you read the introduction, you will find
farmers just pretending to be kind
they make us live among the swine.

We're gonna have a wrecking ball tonight.


Three times
your
a man
don't
worry
you're
one of them
don't
worry
they'll do the work later
and all supplemental tasks
that everybody hated.


We're gonna have a wrecking party at Simon's place
bring along the china, and an optimistic face
Simon says, the square of nine and nine is the same
take away the extra nine, and only nine remains

I get better reception when I'm out here
I get a better reception on the tiles
I drank all of Simon's amazing snake juice
and I'm rocking and a rolling like a child

We're gonna have a wrecking ball tonight.
Delight
delight
delight
A rock and roll wrecking, and the stars are bright.
