lyrics

SWITCHING ON
(Words and music by Herb Garden)

Yeh, flypost it - around the world
Flypost it - around the world

Who's the fool who claims an alibi?
No, no, no - just watching the money patrol
TV image - put your head in the sand
No, no, no - is this the way to evolve?

All the signs say 'Buy it!' 'Sell it!'
Enterprise they say's the by-word, BUT
Hesitate my world's in fever
And neon banners display this order.

(Switching on to new religion)
Switch on. Switch on. DIRTY MONEY

Broadcast it - around the world
Broadcast it - around the world

The intravenous image broadcast
No, no, no - they're pushing for mind-control
And these visions talk with forked tongues
No, no, no - is this the way to evolve?

This media-age of forced aggression
Fuels big tastes, creates compulsions, BUT
Hesitate my world's in fever
Organic matters have no factor.

(Switching on to new religion)
Switch on. Switch on. DIRTY MONEY

TV … insanity … We're talking …
TV … insanity … We're talking …

Necessity makes us players all.
No, no, no - just watching the money patrol
The new Messiah they say’s in our pocket.
No, no, no. Is this the way to evolve?

You can't defy, our sucked-in order
This TV forced a new religion, BUT
Hesitate my world's in fever
And the power has no flower.

(Switching on to new religion)
Switch on. Switch on. DIRTY MONEY.

Switch on.
[Switch it.]

Welcome to the Herb Garden campsite. We will be sharing lots of frenzied frolics and scrumpy-ous sonics with you here in 2014. Check out our sites too - we'll talk on Wordpress, lark about on Facebook, shimmer on Flickr, and glimmer on Youtube, natch.

We've remastered 1989's 'Eponymous' EP, often known as Bulldozer Jones, and all the tracks that led to Warner's DNA mini-LP. We've loads to reveal!
