I Want You to Know

from You Can't Buy Back Your Life by Bill Coleman

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Comes in a cardboard digipak with customised artwork. For a detailed explanation see the Youtube video here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=39Iqpvb6JV8

    The covers were made in batches of 1,000. When put together they spell out the title of the album - see the first picture above.

    Each digipak was then hand stenciled and completed with a manufactured CD and a set of paper slips which go together, jigsaw-like, to spell out the song lyrics, thank-yous and album credits.

    Also includes download of the album in your choice of 320k mp3, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire.

I used to think that my thoughts were the strangest of dreams
Till I realised what the songs that you sing in your dreams mean.
It means that you're learning, it means you compare,
To the ways in the main that connect what you know
With what you feel from life.
You search for the meaning, the sonics of science
And threads from the tale of souls that you're shaping,
Balls that you're breaking,
Sucked from the void that becomes the morass
I want you to know now.

I want you to know I want you to know now.
I want you to know.

I laugh at people and they often take it in vain
Or realise that it's nothing to laugh at a joke.
And it's wiser to smile and be thought of as stupid,
Than to vomit your words and remove all the doubt.
See we've been trained to advantage
We've been dressed for a purpose
And we perform like dogs when the rabbit goes by.
But it feels like it's right
And it's hard to reverse
The course of nature that naturally flows from our words,
I want you to know now.

I want you to know I want you to know now.

If you've got something on your mind
You'd better take the time to come and talk about it.
