about

Our song is Jilted Dragon, a song that may or not be about Smaug the dragon from the Hobbit, and may or may not be about one of Conan's cats. Either way, it's basically a heavy-ish surf song about the internal mindset and motivations of a frequently cranky creature.

On the other side we have Turbo Lightning! One of the bands of the unsinkable Jeff Byron of old pals The Mae Shi. Conan and Jeff go way back, and both have had their ups and downs, both are still here and doing their thing as hard as they can and with aplomb and vigor. Aplomb! Vigor!

In any case: side note, TL singer Dana is also the badass behind the harmony vocals in Quid Pro Quo from the Art of Murder.

Track Name: Jilted Dragon
Burn it to the ground!

On a long enough timeline, everyone will turn against you.
On a long enough timeline a few of them may start to miss you

And that's the way that it is.
(Burn it down, Burn it down )
But maybe not the way it should be
(Burn it down, Burn it down )
Burn it down or take a nap
(Burn it down, Burn it down )
Really makes no difference to me.
(Burn it down)

And that's how the story goes
(Burn it down, Burn it down )
But not how the story ends
(Burn it down, Burn it down )
Burn it down, I'll do it now
(Burn it down, Burn it down )
The fire is so pretty to see
(Burn it down)


And that's the way that it is
(Burn it down, Burn it down )
But probably not the way it should be
(Burn it down, Burn it down )
I am the fire, I am the doom
(Burn it down, Burn it down )
The jilted one, you can call me.
Track Name: Turbo Lightning - Give a Man a Brain
Say we're friends, how long should I wait for nothing to happen at all
Nothing colored, everything I see is black, white, monochrome
No one shows, their colors in perfect light
If I had bionic eyes
Then I'd wish that I was blind
Every time I turn I seem to look at the sun
The lights that blind me are in everyone
But not everyone is quite like you
Stand still, everything's on fire so don't move a muscle at all
Every glance, every little shudder makes one more likely to fall
So exposed, to flickering open flames
If I didn't have a brain
Then I wouldn't need the shade
Every time I turn I seem to look in the sun
That kind of feeling frightens anyone
But not everyone would want to see
Every time I turn I seem to look in the sun
And it's a freedom that's a heady one
But no-ohhh one is quite like me.
