Wasted 03:00
Every note you hear me play is wasted The energy to get this way, it’s waste ‘Cos my heart won’t burn, it gives no light There’s only one thing left tonight The sound of wasting all I’ve left on you Every key that I possess is wasted I’ll strike them hard, I’ll do my best, but it’s waste ‘Cos my heart won’t burn, it gives no light There’s only one thing left tonight The sound of wasting all I’ve left on you Some days I just can’t stand the heat Your entropy has me at your feet, wasted Some days I try to block the noise All this effort to find it’s my own voice, wasted ‘Cos my heart won’t burn, it gives no light There’s only one thing left tonight The sound of wasting all I’ve left on you The sound of wasting all I’ve left on you The sound of wasting all I’ve left on you

Lord, avert her eyes ‘Til I crawl right out of sight Cos she’s the fair enemy feared most in the fight And I don’t fear the reaper, just don’t want to meet her alone ‘cross the sands tonight Hell, it waits for me I can’t tell, is that your dress I see? And no matter where I turn you’re still shaking my tree Cos I don’t fear the reaper, just don’t want to meet her alone when it’s just you and me In love and war, nothing’s fair at all don’t even get to hold you anymore Lord, you’re all I need whether I’m sharpening swords or just pointing East But how come they’ll defeat us when they’re the ones who bleed? Cos I don’t fear the reaper, just don’t want to meet her alone and unarmed, you see Cos I don’t fear the reaper, just don’t want to meet her Alone ‘cross the sands tonight Cos I don’t fear the reaper, just don’t want to meet her Alone ‘cross the sands tonight Alone ‘cross the sands tonight

Hear the song we used to sing the words that might change everything Hold my hand until the end Close your eyes, then count to ten Rosabelle, believe me Rosabelle, believe Rosabelle, believe me For every fraud and every fake might come the day that I awake Hold my hand until Ford answers you again with “How can you do this to me?” he says Rosabelle, believe me, I’ve tried Rosabelle, believe, you’ve lied Rosabelle, believe me Rosabelle, believe

Man in a Bag 02:41
Once there was a man At least that’s what I’m told Inside of a zipped up bag wearing nothing but Schroedinger’s clothes But how’d he get from A to B to EX? What did he do to fail with such effect? Once there was this guy Who lived life on the edge He never got to say his ‘goodbye’ Chose to lock himself up instead What’s in his past to lead to such a fall? What kind of farce to think he’d fool us all? Man in a bag got carried away Man in a bag’s not coming out today
6.
Fingertips 03:50
My fingers feel cold Or that’s what I’m told When you hold my hand You ask me to touch you I can’t feel a thing I’ll message you instead But all this talk, it’s taking me away from my friends The ones I love, the ones that I’ve never met Fingertips, fingerless So sure to reply too slow to react What’s happening to me? Don’t tell me you’re hot I can’t jerk back my arm so I’ll just stamp my feet And all this talk, it’s taking me away from my friends The ones I love, the ones that I’ve never met Fingertips Gone the days I could sense every word that I’d sent Fingertips But all this talk it’s taking me away from my friends The ones I love, the ones that I’ve never met Fingertips Gone the days I could sense every word that I’d sent Fingertips

When I was a girl I didn't destroy I thought 'well what is best for the world' and laughed at all the boys When I was alone I didn't break your trust I looked at all the men that I knew totally driven by lust You should have seen me rise up tall, then take it all When I was a girl I tried not to hate I hoped to beat some sense into you but found I got there too late When I was with friends I felt so secure Didn't see it as some weird little game we just can't play anymore You should have seen rise up tall, then break you all And tease enough to push you off

Take your mistakes and celebrate It’s time for you to appropriate what was mine Winsome lose your head Winsome lose what’s left Winsome lose your friends Take what, what was never yours And be proud. Watch them all applaud…well, maybe not now Winsome lose your mind Winsome lose inside Winsome lose sometimes Don’t believe in loyalty I believe in truth Maybe just for the short term ‘cos long term looks better for you I believe in justice To hell with small mercies ‘Cos what’s good for you alone is excluding me Winsome lose the thread Winsome lose instead Winsome lose someone said

Just Rewards 04:08
A just cause won't satisfy me But applause is something I can feel deep in a shallow part of me Yes it's true, I long to please you I’ll come soon, I've made something for you. A token, that broke along the way I'll get my just rewards Just can't decide which one I want Just maybe it will be this line? Give it time, give it time And I should try to help you I do good, but what good does it do for me when I can't see you smile? Some give back what was given I keep track of who is slipping up. Some people, they owe so much to me I'll get my just rewards Just can't decide which one I want Just maybe it will be this line? I'll get my just rewards Just can't decide which one I want Just maybe it will be this line? Give it time, give it time

When I sing of love it’s not quite the same Why release the dove when you can sell it again? When I speak of peace I spell it with an ’I’ Like what you will receive if you choose to comply I might grow my hair long Live off of the land Welcome you to my farm where all the apples go bad I love to roll in the green Of California Of the 10 dollar bills I’ll made from you today When I close my eyes Everything feels still But when you close your eyes I just make for the hills When I strike a deal I strike it hard then down Lie, cheat, and steal just what my mindset allows I might smoke all day long Live off of the land Welcome you to my farm where all the apples go bad I love to roll in the green Of California Of the 10 dollar bills I’ll made from you today

You’re in my heart You’re such a precious thing my diamond ring my flesh, and your blood And I can’t control the way I feel ‘Cos this love so unreal So much that it hurts. But they say… All I have is yours and that’s including you All I wanted was wanting all All those times we fought, they always knew That what I needed was the truth…and a piece of you We can’t be apart I worry so much that you’ll miss my touch wherever it lands You are my sun Your shiner is brighter than stars and all the laughs that we once had. But they say… All I have is yours and that’s including you All I wanted was one and all All those times we fought, the always knew That what I needed was the truth…and a piece of you Can’t put a price on love Now’s time to shake him off It’s time to take all of you back It’s time to crackdown on it

No News 03:10
I see in the news that we’ve got the blues again But all I see’s red, I don’t care what they said It takes 56 pages to tell me I’m wasting my time Tomorrow will change, won’t remember today Yet there’s just enough news to fill up the bulletin And how do they know that there’s always enough going on? You see, one day it’s bombs the next it’s all Babylon No news No news I read in the stars we still got a lot to prove The headline was clear, ‘come lend me your ear’ But I just can’t decide what to show, what to hide from you The text moves so fast, the meaning get’s lost But there’s just enough news to fill up the bulletin And how do they know that there’s always enough going on? See, one day it’s quiet the next it’s all Babylon No news, no news No news, no news

‘HEIR OF THE DOG’ (their *8th* album), sees CWNN build further on their reputation for distinctive, off beat electro-acoustic-quasi-pop. Whilst ‘Wasted’ comes closest to anything resembling that, other tracks eat up and spit out genres as random and clearly fabricated as Cohenesque-Gospel (‘Of California’), Moot-Mutant Disco (‘Rosabelle, Believe’) and Cubano-Gypsy (‘Fingertips’).

CWNN’s palette is typically enhanced with a range of guests. STEVEN BROWN, BLAINE L. REININGER and LUC VAN LIESHOUT (of TUXEDOMOON) all add their magic. Ex-Sneaker Pimp and trip hop legend KELLI ALI is a ghostly presence throughout, and contributes the pastoral ‘Yves Klein’s Blues’, punctuated by American vocalist SIRENA RILEY. The album ends with one of CWNN’s most atmospheric piano pieces, the previously unreleased ‘No News’, which closes the ‘BLUE VELVET REVISITED’ film in serious style.

So, whether you choose to be thrown to the heir, or heir to the thrown, watch out…‘Heir of the Dog’ is gonna bite.
