I see u twitching on the motorways I see u runnin' like a ricochet The dying breath of another day And you're burning inside The sweating beds of yr holidays The tightened ribbons of the nursery The awful truth shining in the walls A thousand times again Screaming weapons muted in the dark Somebody open my eyes SHOCK MY BLOOD INTO THE BITTER SUN SPREAD LOVE WITH THE BARREL OF A GUN I see a world painted sugar-free I wanna taste it like it used to be The shadows rise on a yellow sun I see the shadows rise The crushed flower or yr human pride The guilty hum of the poisoned mind You wanna shine like a diamond, babe? I'll shine until you go blind The dust settles on a vision of hell Somebody say it again KISS THE COLORS OF THE ENEMY KILL THE WAR AND EAT THE POVERTY

Queen bitch, harvester of sores Black serpent coiled around your throat Picked clean, the sun-white bones Eyes high and the signal is thrown You're bangin' the door, you're fixed to the floor You're dead to the core and I'm waiting Stuck to your brain, that memory's stain Of life and love in vain... You're shit, laughing like this Arm-in-arm with the scores of whores Black tunnel to the den of the dead One gun and a hole in yr head You're bangin' the door, you're fixed to the floor You're dead to the core and I'm waiting Stuck to your brain, that memory's stain Of life and love in vain... You're bangin' the door, you're fixed to the floor You're dead to the core and I'm waiting Sucked to the drain, your debt reclaimed On wasted yesterdays

Slide 04:00
U put it up and you rip it down U put it up and u rip it back down U build it up and you knock it down U build it up and u kick it back down Eager eyes and a weakening heart The hired gun, the getaway car Break outta prison on a spring breeze And now yer trippin' on the seven seas... U put it up and u rip it down... Sorry songs on yr passport Power chords on life support Integrity until you get bored Dirty money pulls you out the back door And so you prop up the campaign House party for the addle-brained SLIDE BABY, WATCH YOU SLIDE RIGHT DOWN C'MON ANGEL, SLIP YR PRIDE TO THE GROUND

Life's gone to shit -- ask anyone Blasted to bits Who stole the fun? Who killed the sun? Who sucked the style right outta yr smile? This party's done I'm gonna hide until i die And in the end, this i know: Nothing can pull us uphill So deeper down, deeper down we roll... (til we're) STRANGLED, ENTANGLED, RIPPED APART AND MANGLED THE VICTORY OF HOPELESSNESS, THE HIGH-FIVE OF MISERY WE'RE THE BROKEN GLASS IN THE JUNKYARD; THE FROZEN HEARTS OF THE SOUL-CRUSHED THE BURNING WRECK OF LOVE THE BURNING WRECK OF LOVE Until the end, this I know: Nothing can pull us uphill So deeper down, deeper down we roll... (til we're) STRANGLED, ENTANGLED, RIPPED APART AND MANGLED THE VICTORY OF HOPELESSNESS, THE HIGH-FIVE OF MISERY WE'RE THE BROKEN GLASS IN THE JUNKYARD; THE FROZEN HEARTS OF THE SOUL-CRUSHED THE BURNING WRECK OF LOVE THE BURNING WRECK OF LOVE UNTIL THE END, THIS MUCH I KNOW: THE FIRST ONE TO LOSE HIS MIND WILL BE THE FIRST TO KNOW WE'RE THE BROKEN HEARTS OF THE SOUL-CRUSHED, BITCH-SLAPPED FROM ABOVE THE HIGH-FIVE OF MISERY THE BURNING WRECK OF LOVE THE BURNING WRECK OF LOVE

I'm moving into the disco--I'm gonna go where i wanna go--i seep into the channels all night long--the air is sweet and the current strong... The Dj decks and the mirror ball--the cigarettes in the outer hall--sleep in the faders with the power on--i know exactly where i belong... THIS IS THE NIGHT HONEY SING FOR YOUR LIFE TRADE YR EGO FOR APPETITE SHAKE IT FOR SPITE YOU'RE A THOUSAND MILES WIDE U LOVE THE ONES THAT YOU TERRORIZE You're eating off of the memories--slow songs in the minor keys--dying by inches, you submit yourself--could it be our lives are parallel?

High crimes, black ties Bled dry, struck blind Palaces, barricades Shoot to kill, when in range Holidays in the sun Dressed and desperate, looking for fun Cocktailed, derailed Deception and sex on sale Barricades, smoking guns Friendship severed and it's only one Holidays in the sun Dressed and desperate, looking for fun Promises, cavalcades Shoot to kill when in range

look deep into the water see the fishes swimming in yr eyes tunnel deep into the mattress to an animal that's 2X yr size (do you like what u see? is it who you wanna be?) falling deeper into deeper this life ain't fer keepers! (and u say it to yrself:) "I'M LOSING MY MIND" EVEN AS IT'S HAPPENING! "I'M LOSING MY MIND" look deep into the mirror bugs living underneath yr skin sleeping on the ceiling. easier to see the mess yer in (do you like what u see? is it who you wanna be?) falling deeper into deeper this life ain't fer keepers! (and u say it to yrself:) "I'M LOSING MY MIND" EVEN AS IT'S HAPENING! "I'M LOSING MY MIND" --

about

The first album by Black Sugar Transmission is mainly a solo affair, with Andee doing most of the work (excepting the drum tracks for "Bangin' the Door" and "Dressed and Desperate", which were played by Matt Farley [BULLY] and Jerry Gaskill [KING'S X], respectively). It consists of material Andee wrote in the spring of 2007, as well as a few faves from the pOp*stAr*kiDs era ("Kiss the Ground", "Girls Gone Wild").

"Killing! BLACK SUGAR TRANSMISSION rocks more with each listen" -- Vernon Reid

"Andee spikes his hair like Daniel Ash but can be as refined as Peter Murphy" -- Tris McCall

"If you wanted to know what would happen if you put the 1991 Lollapalooza lineup all in one band, this might be a good estimate." - Muscles Were Invented By Communists

"the future of rock and roll" -- Nuno Bettencourt

The BLACK SUGAR TRANSMISSION debut CD has enjoyed heavy radio play at college stations (over 70) throughout North America.
