about

PHOTO: Hey, check the Hapsburg lower lip!

RACEHORSE was an idea I had, an alter ego if you like, and was designed to free me of the weight of my own ego by overwhelming it with an ego of unparalleled proportions. And fuck me if it didn't work; performing as Racehorse allowed me a freedom I'd heretofore only dreamed about, namely the freedom to be a complete asshole. Here's a question that I love, as posited by Carlos Fuentes:
Given the choice, is it better to strive to be a better person than you can ever hope to be, say, a Jesus Christ, or is it better to try to follow your nature to where it leads you, even if that's backwards, say, to the state of being of a chimpanzee? Racehorse knew the answer.

I'm sorry
I went mental on you baby
If I could have screwed with time I think I might have.
I might have been dumb as Hell
There it is
Before my nose
I think I might have

I still had it all to prove
Nothing in my pockets but I talent for evading the truth
The truth
All I knew how to do was to bark at you
I never do mean to bite but I do
Bite
Honey I try but my pride gets in the way
Every time I get it right I wind up Fighting with myself
Myself
I always know a good thing until I get it
And then I get it
And then I lose my sight

Well you might like to know I've got somebody new
I truly don't like to compare her to you
I know you'd find it ironic, honey I do too
All the best I do for her,
I swear I learned it from you

But if being a fool makes me less a man
Let me be less a man, more a soul less a rule
Less a king, less a thing
More a small part of heaven more tool in good hands
More a reflection of you

More a vase, more a sack, less a rock, more a sock
More a seed, less a weed, more a container, less complainer
Less a need, more fertilizer, less a greed more down to size

Track Name: Attractive
It's not the way you dress
It's not the presents that you bring
It's not the accoutrements of good taste you posess
It's just the way you shake that thing

I would not have spoken but how could I hold my tongue
Because I see you and I cannot help but be distracted
I would not try to fool you into thinking that is wrong, but I
Could not try to hide the fact I find you so attractive

It's not the fashions that you cop
It's definitely not your cash
Well all right you've got the kind of body that makes the traffic stop.
But woah, the way you shake that pelvis

I would not have spoken but how could I hold my tongue
Because I see you and I cannot help but be distracted
I would not try to fool you into thinking that is wrong, but I
Could not try to hide the fact I find you so attractive

It's not the way that you cover it up
It's not all that crap from your hat to your shoes
It's not what comes between you and your love
It's just the light that pours out of you

I would not have spoken but how could I hold my tongue
Because I see you and I cannot help but be distracted
I would not try to fool you into thinking that is wrong, but I
Could not try to hide the fact I find you so attractive
