Turtle Race 07:26
TURTLE RACE Written by Working Breed Lyrics by Erika June Christina Laing Painting a black canvas red Black and blue pictures of you in my head. Haunting my thoughts, the words I've been fed The earth is still warm where you left She can have your hollow bones Your gift horse throat Your swindled hope She can have your brick of gold Your country club I've had enough Biting my lip on the telephone Every day of my life is a dial tone Swallowing blithe sustains my life until I see the light I hope I don't miss it, I hope its bright She can have your cheap parade Your palisade Your turtle race She can have your turpentine Your sterling shine But your sorrow, your sorrow is mine Its all you left behind If you love somebody, your're fucked If you love somebody, your're fucked If you love somebody, your're fucked If you love somebody, your're fucked You're fucked, you're fucked, You're fucked, you're fucked, you’re fucked, you’re fucked You’re fucked, you’re fucked, Fucked She can have your charm and grace Your smiling eyes Your soft embrace She can have your entire being As you can see clearly you meant nothing to me

My Chimera 05:12
MY CHIMERA Written by Working Breed Lyrics by Erika June Christina Laing She is a song with no ending She is a harp with fresh strings She is a permanent coda At once she is all of these things She’s my chimera <x4> But no one can hear her but me She splinters my eye with her light Her feminine chakra’s bright pink She is a black hole for lovers She disappears when you blink She’s my chimera <x4> But no one can see her but me I've got hope to remember I've got dreams to forget I’ve got pain, pain With my hands in my pockets My lips zippered closed It’s a limb on my body, I just can’t let go It’s hard to acknowledge But deep down I know My chimera can’t help me anymore Her body is dust in a sunray Her dance is a breeze on my cheek She is the hair that grows in my legs When the day is cold, windy, and bleak She’s my chimera <x4> No one can hear her but me No one can see her but me No one can feel her but me No one can feel her but me

about

These two tracks are early releases from the forthcoming Working Breed album, Transparent Raven, due out early 2019. Polar opposites, Turtle Race is an epic story of grief and healing, while My Chimera is a theatrical romp through the impish impulses of our inner selves.

about

Working Breed Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Working Breed is a scintillating quintet that writes original and eclectic Art Rock full of surprises. Described by First Angel Media as “Steely Dan turned up to 11 and rocking out in a Prohibition-era speakeasy”, their music is is a carnival of sound as the group journeys together through jaunty songs of independence, histrionic ballads of heartache, and reverent tributes to healing. ... more
