about

"Victoria Street was recorded by Buddy Holiday (Jahan Kumarasinhe, Calum Newton and Bryce Wilson) over the course of a month in our share house in Flemington, Melbourne. The world doesn't need more celebrities, gadgets, fashion and doomsday clock culture, it just needs more people who care about people and the future generations that will inherit the world as we make it. In our own small way it'd be nice to say fuck you to the short sighted culture that ultimately feeds off the future for the short term gain of material comfort. Thank you to our friends for all the help, encouragement and enthusiasm to keep writing, playing shows and making music, we owe you all to the moon and back. See you all soon, xx BH"

Track Name: On Victoria Street
On Victoria Street
you was
good to me
that was all I ever wanted

If I had to choose
$$$ or you
I wouldn't think
Track Name: Money
I ride to work
I'm stoned on money
I'm driving home
I'm stoned on money

I'm talking to a friend
they think i'm on it

I feel so lost
I don't know
what to do
with myself

I ride to work
I'm stoned on money
I'm driving home
I'm stoned on money
I'm talking to a friend
I know they're on it
too

I feel so lost
I don't know
what to do

with myself
anymore
Track Name: Inner city dream
Walking on Victoria Street
I think that i've been here
for a year
or so
you've been here
longer than the cafes

In the carpark
all the ashtrays
have been turned over
you've been here
longer than the yuppies

the inner city dream
will have me
wrapped in sheets
freezing
out in
Victoria Street

It's only April now
already the sun goes down
in the afternoon
you've been here
longer than I have

the inner city dream
Track Name: Maggies Dress
Maggies
Cold feet
walking
away from me

splintered
palings
this house is a jail for me

Hit and miss
rorschach test
not my best day
I'm a mess

I bailed from work
early today
realised I had
Maggies dress in my car

Hit and miss
Track Name: 7 AM
7am in the city
before the day get's busy
I'm a silhouette

I'm out on my skateboard
street cleaners
echo off
the city walls

How was I to know
the feeling would go
I want
to take this slow

Sunrise from the pier
meet me here
we can
disappear

7 AM in the city
before the day gets busy
Track Name: verematheracehorse
took some ketamine
to ease me down
I can hear
the thinning crowd

I'm not gone
but it can't be
long now

someones coming up
but
I'm going six feet down

to you i'm an old race horse
break my leg and let me go
under dirt under snow
it goes to show

take me out
to the oval
the crowds gone
and all that's left is empty bottles

I can hear
the evening birds
I can feel the sting
of your bullet

to you i'm an old race horse

broken leg and the shotgun sings
a dying horse is a dogs best friend
Track Name: Day
float away
on a barrel of paint
only a mistake

show me
you mean what you mean

leaving
early
today is a day for me
I don't think I can be fucked
If your going to abuse my trust
what do you do when I'm gone
I don't think
you know me

even if you lied
I only tried
to be someone good

leaving early
Track Name: Migraine
thinking about you
gave me a migraine
sometimes its hard to know
is it me to blame

leave behind
all your jealously
come meet me
on Victoria Street

that he's such a fuck
is hard to take
sometimes its hard to know
what someones like before they
show their face

I tried to take it slow
but with you its a race
I'm not sure that I care
to finish in second place

Leave behind all your jealousy
meet me on Victoria Street
Track Name: bridge
I woke up
late afternoon
on your sofa

went down
shoot shoot has got something
good for me again

gave up on working
although I wish I could
sometimes I get the idea
that
me being around is no good for you

rain falls
but its dry
under your cloud
I'm sure that i'm
living off you now

I woke up
late afternoon in your bed
I can't work out what it is that
I must have said
gave up on working
although I wish I could

Rain falls
but its dry
under your cloud
