Motormouth/ Cancel Hope (Hidden Track)

from Satellite Generation by Welter - Acoustic Indie Folk Rock




I am not much chop at backyard cricket but I always gave it a go and so did all my gang. Saul Adam, Martin, Anne. and my brothers Scott, Matt and Nath. Long hot summer days on Mulgrave street looking for the ball in the neighbour's yards after a 6 and out. Remember. No fucking LBW!. The best thing about going home is there is stuff in the background. In the air in the fabric of the town that holds you and makes you feel safe. We did this song live and in one take. We must have felt safe.



I did my best so don’t come down to hard
Followed in your footsteps Tippity run in the back yard
But when Summer comes we go a little crazy

Motormouth. Me and my motormouth.
Couldn’t wait to let it out.
And drive on home.

High on the high street. Dollar in my hand.
Drifting sound of green sleeves. Skipping along to the Whippy van.
Catch the man.
But when Summer comes we go a little crazy
Chorus repeat.

The last two hundred K’s to Melbourne make it by the end of the day.
Left the harbour city at ten o’clock, breaking the law all the way
Chorus repeat

Read it in the papers, haves and have nots.
The SATELLITE GENERATION left on heap to rot
Swallowed up your truth, don’t induce belief
Stuck in part time job, a lifetime of grief.
Chorus repeat

Cancel Hope

Cancel hope bear the weight
You my joy
Cancel joy I am dumb
You my will

Can’t go on I need you back.
Can’t go on I want you back.
What’s the point I lose again?
What’s the point?
I have seen the end.

Cancel hope stop the show
You my love
Cancel love I am lost
You my heart

Chorus repeat
