about

A musical break-up.

The debut album from OJ Law was completely written and recorded in a two-week explosion of music making.

Focusing solely on three instruments (keyboards, bass guitar, drum machine), the lofi, minimalist arrangements on Law focuses the attention of the listener to the songs themselves.

Track Name: Freudian Slip
one two three four

got a body in my soul
got my tongue tied in a fantasy untold
had a freudian slip
out of context
yes i know your name
i wasn't thinking; temporarily insane
had a freudian slip

i was waiting for the last dance.
Track Name: Domino Effect
settle down
watch this space
if i had nobody then
then i have nobody now

i had no heart to say it to your face
if i had some guts to spare
well i'm gutted now

all my words are sucked right into space
if i had a chance to change
well i had some room for doubt

i saw the signs from interstellar space
if it was so obvious
why do i feel so down?

put it in a bottle and throw it away
wash into the ocean of a fading day

for a moment
(why'd you turn your back away?)
i was undone
(I was only trying to keep things)
but in time
(going not collapsing like a row of)
I will be strong
(dominos, dominos falling)
falling, falling, falling, falling, falling, falling, falling, falling.

dry those tears
try to be brave
still trying to comprehend
what took place

start again
i wash my face
if i made some bad mistakes
then not again

i love and hate you for all we've been through
but i can't tell you right now
maybe i never will

and for a while we really ruled the land
moments unique to us
well wasn't it grand?
Track Name: I Couldn't Get It Up
post-party
end up on a roam
my eyes are red
and yours are closed
we kiss so blindly
shed our clothes
i'll put a record on

but no oh oh oh

i dream of scarlett
think of exes
you try to give me oral pleasure
i try to focus
hocus pocus
my mind has given up

oh no oh oh oh
i couldn't get it up

we can just hold hands

girl i really like you
but i'm having a bit of problem….
Track Name: Headphones
let me wish away the last five nights
i was caught redhanded and i knew that
this time i really blew it

please take it all out on me baby
don't hold back
i know that i deserve it
this time i can't excuse it

i was wrong to lose it
i seldom do it
we were so right before
how did it go so wrong?

the only way i know to get away is putting on my headphones

tired of the lies and all the whys
(tired of the lies, the lies we told)
don't pretend you didn't see it coming
(in a way, we saw it coming)
we fought and it was brewing
(when it rained, it started pouring)

fighting for the last words all the time
(fighting for the last, the final word)
screaming like two children in a courtyard
(slinging insults like two schoolgirls)
expletives really struck hard
(seems we never ever will learn)

i was wrong to lose it
i seldom do it
we were so right before
how did it go so wrong?

the only way i know to get away is putting on my headphones

let me wish away the last five nights…
Track Name: let's meet up (and have some fun)
ba ba ba ba ba

i'm getting bored of sitting around and doing nothing.
i'm getting bored of sitting around and doing nothing.
i'm getting bored of sitting around and doing nothing.
i'm getting bored of sitting around and doing nothing.

down downtown
i'll meet you at the usual spot my baby
down downtown
we're gonna meet up and have a good time now!
Track Name: laughing and crying
thoughts flow like an ocean liner
how do i gently let my feelings be known?
(i don't wanna be the one to say it
i don't wanna be the one to end it)

i let it sit with me for weeks
then suddenly decide today i'm letting go
(i don't wanna say that it's not worth it
and i don't want to stay so vitriolic)

it makes me wanna laugh
it makes me wanna cry
it makes me wanna laugh
it makes me wanna die inside.

i break the news with sudden feeling
an orchestra of silence fills the room
(i don't wanna be the nasty bad guy
i don't wanna be the super villain)

she acts so calm as if she really
didn't give a fuck… well maybe it's too soon.
(i don't want to push the issue
but i thought we warranted a tissue or two)

it makes her want to laugh
it makes her want to cry
it makes her want to laugh
it makes her want to die inside.

we meet up for a cup of coffee
for a couple of weeks
but it's clear we're finished soon
(i don't wanna look you in the eye again
i don't wanna see you smiling anymore)

it makes me wanna laugh
it makes me wanna cry
it makes me wanna laugh
it makes me wanna die…
Track Name: doo doo doo
i love you more than any other
doo doo doo
Track Name: broken record heart
i was a little off my stride
i was drinking to forget about my life
and when you said "that's it, goodbye"
i was reeling
girl you caught me by surprise

but all surprises end and then
i see the truth a-staring at me from my friends
and if i had another chance
i would ditch this stupid girl before the romance

i don't bare no grudge
we're both to blame
i bitch and then i sulk the night away
i look into your eyes and i can see
that we are no more.

i was a little bit off-guard
you spite me with your words
and kicked my arse

oh my god
it's really over
it's no dream
i'm really sober
if i had another chance
then there would not be a romance

i don't need no-one
to tell me that there will be others
to make sweeter music
sweeter love
and sweeter babies rocking

tell me why
why are you wasting your life on me?
why are you wasting your life?
why are you wasting your life on me?
why are you wasting your life?
Track Name: the night i went into shock
the night i went into shock
was the night that you told me too much
how was i to know what transpired
would be an almighty headfuck?

oh the time flies by so sickeningly
and it's hard to keep up
and your posture is so familiar..

I don't know how long it takes
to get over the first hiccup
over the first slip-up
over the first disappointment.

to get over the first shake down
over the first breakdown
over the first sign of trouble

the night i went into shock
was the night that it all went to rot.

i turn around and it starts to snow
i wander around this park alone
just look how fast the leaves have changed
still i feel i haven't aged
and summer seems so long ago
all the tunes on the radio
well, they're not the same
no they're not the same
still i haven't changed.
Track Name: credit roll
tune in next time
for the next chapter of the story

we'll have explosions and arrests
drama and intense fighting for you to see

tune in next time
we'll keep the audiences talking

we'll have a special guest appear
plot twists and a big love scene between the leads

and when the story's told
we'll all be old.
