    The Slambovian Circus of Dreams third studio album, "THE GREAT UNRAVEL" has their trademark 'punk-classical hillbilly-floyd' brand of folk-rock, with a hefty dose of sixties psychedelia running through it all. (ie: The Great Unravel, Pushin' Up Daisies, Clear Channel, Summer's Day). The original release of this album had 'Desire' opening the album, getting down to business right out of the gate, a preamble that rails against 'the man' in the tradition of responsible folk guru - it now is deeper in the album. The current release has Pushin' Up Daisies' as the opening track, where the fun begins. Not wanting to neglect their Celtic roots, the band called on renowned uillueann pipemaker Seth Gallagher, (who sits in with The Chieftains occasionally and builds pipes for the luminaries of traditional Celtic music). His playing adds a supernatural dimension to the album's hauntingly beautiful love song, 'Tink'...

Track Name: Pushin' Up Daisies
The lies will unravel and light and love win
In dreams we will travel as new worlds begin
In our hearts, in our hearts, in our hearts

Not just wishful thinking, these thoughts are like seeds
They can grow anywhere, and they’re stronger than weeds
Let’s plant ‘em all over, all over the world
All over the world


They transform resistance into an embrace
Let everyone know they can’t be replaced
We’re pushing up daisies way up to the sky
And nobody dies

We’re pushing up daisies, way up to the sky
And nobody dies
And nobody dies
And nobody dies
'Cause nobody dies

Daisies, daisies
Track Name: Julia
Julia, I can’t let go
I’d give my life to let you know
But all I have is what I feel
I’ll do my best to make it real to you

Julia when you smile
Heaven comes to Earth awhile
Gives us hope of what could be
Love that vast and endless sea come true

Julia oh when you’re dancing
I can tell why I’ve been chancing all I have on you

Julia, I can’t let go
I’d give my life to let you know
But all I have is what I feel
I’ll do my best to make it real to you
To you, my Julia, my Julia, my Julia
Track Name: Tink (I Know It's You)
I see you runnin’ in the night
you little spark of light I know it’s you oh yeah
Oh I see you sneakin’ through the trees
you whisper on the breeze to steal my heart and you do
Yeah I know it’s you

I see you lookin’ through her eyes
There ain’t no disguise for what you do to me
Oh I see you reachin’ through the lies
Oh I am so surprised you’ve come this far for me

'Cause hey Tink, I was so unkind, grown up and so blind
Tempted by a love that took me far from home
Hey Tink I just couldn’t see you were meant for me
I left you in a garden full of broken dreams yeah

I see you and I understand it ain’t Neverland it’s me and you, oh yeah
And I pray that this might be the day that we can get away from grown up dreams and blues

'Cause hey Tink now that I can see
You’re still here with me
We can take the reins and beat this thing together
Hey Tink we can merge in time with the Great Divine
And we can build a world for all the lost and lonely

I know it’s you
I know it’s you
I know it’s you

I see you runnin’ in the night
You little spark of light I know its you, oh yeah
Track Name: Clear Channel
Well if you wanna be a clear channel
Well then you ought’a be a clear channel
Can’t block the way and use the name
Can’t say you’re new and play the same lame game

Words of light flashin’
Through the night crashin’ through
And that light changin’ wrong to right, lies to true

Songs of light flashin’ through the night crystal blue
And that light changing wrong to right, lies to true

I think it’s time to be a clear channel
Make up your mind to be a clear channel
Let go the fear that brings the greed
Let the abundance flow into real needs
Track Name: Summer's Day
Summertime is magic, s’always been
Time when we escape these prisons we’re in
Night may disappear as dream begins all on a summer’s day
All on a summer’s day

I would like to be someone new
I would like to be dancing with you
And I think I’d like to find a love that’s true
All on a summer’s day
All on a summer’s day

So hey, why don’t you walk with me again
And hey, we could pretend that we’re still friends
I wouldn’t mind at all
If you would come to call on me

Well I don’t care if the sun don’t shine
If it rains like cats and porcupines
Long as I have a chance to play
All on a summer’s day
All on a summer’s day

So hey why don’t you walk with me again
And hey, we could pretend that we’re still friends
I wouldn’t mind at all
If you would come to call on me

Yeah I don’t care if the sun don’t shine
If it rains like cats and porcupines
Long as I have a chance with you
All on a summer’s day
All on a summer’s day
All on a summer’s day
All on a summer’s day
Track Name: The Great Unravel
Everything you are, everything you see
Wished upon a star, hoped that you could be
Everything they know, what they think is real
You can let it go, truth will be revealed

Let go, free your mind to travel, make way for the great unravel

Hear those voices call, callin’ out to you
Life back to the Fall wants to find what’s true
All our lonely days, all our sordid past
Let it fade away, only love will last

Let go teach your mind to travel
Make way for the great unravel

Justice and light will bring relief
From all these lies that caused this grief
Now the Creator becomes the thief and brings it home
Yeah

You try to love this world, give it all your heart
Every boy and girl, but it’s tearin’ us apart
Everything’s so cold, it’s time to make it warm
Pray this moment be the calm before the storm

Let go, free your mind to travel, make way for the great unravel
Let go, free your mind to travel, make way for the great unravel
Let go, free your mind to travel, make way for the great unravel
Track Name: Picture
Give me your picture uh huh, tell me your story uh huh
You could lie for awhile, you could lie for a while
Tell me you love me uh huh, nothing above me uh huh
You could lie for awhile, you could lie for a while
Could just be faith in me might just burn this prison down

Tears on my pillow uh huh, I weep like a willow, uh huh
We have cried for too long, everything has gone wrong
Rewrite this story uh huh, from hopeless to glory uh huh
We have cried for too long, we have cried for too long
Could just be faith in me might just burn this prison down

It’s so very very hard living near and yet so far from the people that you love yeah yeah
And when they magnify the crime and ya gotta do the time it’s so hard to keep your sanity
So do one thing for me

It’s so very very hard living near and yet so far from the people that you love yeah yeah
And when they magnify the crime and ya gotta do the time it’s so hard to keep your sanity

Well give me your picture uh huh, tell me your story uh huh
You could lie for awhile, we could lie for a while
Tell me you love me uh huh, just God above me uh huh
You could lie for awhile, you could lie for a while
Could just be faith in me might just burn this prison down
Could just be the things we’ve seen could turn this whole damn thing around

So give me your picture
Tell me your story
Tell me you love me
Give me your picture
Track Name: Bobby's Kinda Dumb
Bobby’s kind of dumb
Yeah he don’t get religion
Thinks that God is one
Yeah he don’t do division

He doesn’t know ‘bout these ways or these times
Bobby’s kind of dumb
Thinks we’re all one family
Thinks that God is love
Yeah he’s not very manly

He doesn’t know ‘bout these ways or these times
He doesn’t know ‘bout these ways or these times

Bobby thinks that folks who preach religious hate are all a bunch of fakes
Teaching kids to act in ways that further causes God’s great heart to break
Thinks their snakes

But Bobby’s kinda dumb

Yeah Bobby’s kinda dumb
Thinks it’s going to work out
Thinks that love will reign
Thinks we’ll get these quirks out

Yeah he doesn’t know ‘bout these ways or these times
Can’t understand ‘bout these ways or these times
Child not a man to these ways ...

Bobby’s kind of dumb.
Track Name: Everyone Has A Broken Heart
Everyone has a broken heart, has a broken heart, has a broken heart
Everyone has a broken heart, has a broken heart to mend

There are times in our lives when everything goes right
And our troubles all fade away yeah
The ebb and flow of this sad rodeo lifts us up, drops us down everyday

Everyone has a broken heart, has a broken heart, has a broken heart
Everyone has a broken heart, has a broken heart to mend

So we learn how to ride that bull and all it’s tides
Holding on as we fight the time
And through it all we hear some distant call
Of a place where our lives will rhyme

Everyone has a broken heart, has a broken heart, has a broken heart
Everyone has a broken heart, has a broken heart to mend

Everyone wants a brand new start for their broken heart for their broken heart
Cuz everyone has a broken heart, has a broken heart to mend

Everyone has a broken heart, has a broken heart, has a broken heart
Everyone has a broken heart, has a broken heart to mend

Everyone has a broken heart, has a broken heart, has a broken heart
Everyone has a broken heart, has a broken heart to mend
Track Name: Light A Way
I know what you’re thinkin’
Someday we can ride out
Rise above this sinkin’
Someday we can ride out

And light a way
And light a way again
Again

I know what you’re dreamin’
Better worlds than this one
Better ways of being
Shining like a bright sun

We’ll light a way
We’ll light a way again
Again

We’ll cross over the river
And find what we’re after
Learn to give like a giver
All our tears turn to laughter

We’ll light a way
We’ll light a way again
Again

We’ll cross over the river
And find what we’re after
Learn to give like the Giver
All our tears turn to laughter

We’ll light a way
We’ll light a way again
Again

Come light a way
Come light a way
Again
Again
Again
Again

I know what you’re thinkin’
Track Name: Forever and a Day
This is your lucky day
The day your ship comes in
It’s when your dreams come true
It’s when it all begins

We’re like children on a snowy mornin’
With all the time we need to play
It’s like magic come without a warnin’
To take the pain away
You know
I know you know

And it can go as deep as you want
Or it can dance
It can be the end of the world
Or just romance
It can be the answer to all
Or simple things
Can reveal the meaning of life
Or it can sing

I know you know that this is true
I hope you know that I love you

Forever and a day like this
Forever and a day
Forever and a day like this
When Earth and Heaven kiss

I know you know that this is true
I hope you know that I love you

Forever and a day like this
Forever and a day
Forever and a day like this
When Earth and Heaven kiss

Forever and a day like this
Forever and a day
Forever and a day like this
Forever and a day
Track Name: Desire
The ghosts Americana have all gathered here today
To dream their dreams together and to try and find a way
To get the hope we used to have to come back into play
Oh desire, oh desire come again

There’s giants roaming in our streets the workers fear their din
They swing their heavy bottom lines they threaten life and limb
They kill their loyal labor slaves at some financial whim
Oh desire, oh desire come again
Oh desire, oh desire come again

There’s terrorizing strangers knocking downstairs at our door
They threaten everything we know to even some vague score
Where they began and where we’ll end it’s hard to say no more
Oh desire, oh desire come again
Oh desire, oh desire come again

Whoa light of love what can you send
Whoa light of love we need a friend
Sometimes fear that it’s the end

A land of milk and honey, a land where there’s no fear
That’s built on love not money oh how can we bring it here
A land that is for everyone let’s wipe away each tear
Oh desire oh desire come again

Oh desire, oh desire come again
Oh desire, oh desire, come and bring your holy fire
Oh desire, oh desire come again.
