about

The Sloth is interrupted from an intense facebook-scrolling sesh by a message from the landlord - he's getting kicked out. After a stressful flat-hunt he cleans out the old place to get back the deposit, and comes across a mysterious manuscript hidden amongst his stuff. The front reads: 'The Sloth Origin Saga'...

Sloth Metropolis Glasgow, UK

The Sloth of the Metropolis
Woke up from deep sleep
In a flat in a familiar town
With familiar streets

Now he explores the city
Waking everyone he meets

Track Name: Social
I've got no reason to stay here
my inbox and updates are all clear
Myspace and Bebo they came and they went
But this blue and white bastard it will not relent

So I scroll on down
Feel the hours drown
As I read these pointless posts i've found
Track Name: A Status in the Life
There was a riot in the pound shop
There was a riot in the pound shop today

Until they put them in a van
While all the other ones ran
Should have had a plan

I saw dead pigs hanging up today
Til someone came and cut its head off in front of me
I went to the doctor for a cortisone injection
I can’t move my wrist and I can’t make no genuflection
‘least after this then it’ll face the right direction singing

Happy birthday Green Mind
Happy birthday Allan
Goodbye Kevin Ayers
Track Name: The Hunt
Landlord comes around, sez “your lease is up,
Move out my house and get out your stuff” ‘cause

You don’t own
You don’t own
You don’t own
Your own home

A couple and a friend want a two-bed flat
But the letting agent won’t allow for that ‘cause

You don’t own
You don’t own
You don’t own
Your own home

They don’t want students or DSS
So the only thing they offer is homelessness ‘cause

You don’t own
You don’t own
You don’t own
Your own home

Oh where
will we find
A place?

It’s stressing me out no end
And I’m starting to bore my friends
It’s just like a jungle
You sift through the rubble
And try to find a patch that you can claim

Oh where
will we find
A place?

well maybe Bucky Fuller’s gonna
Put me in his gesodesic dome
Oh who ho ho
Or pass me a dymaxion
I don’t mind living in an old silo
Oh no no no

Maybe I’ll go back to the highlands
And buy into a crofting scheme
A couple of sheep and a piece of land
And that would be a pleasant dream

Off the grid
Off the grid I will go
Off the grid
And off the grid I’ll suddenly go

I’ll staple together a couple of caravans
By the loch with a view of the sea
A compost toilet, a solar panel
And that would be a pleasant dream

Off the grid
Off the grid I will go
Off the grid
And off the grid I’ll suddenly go

But then out of nowhere
We got ourselves a viewing
And I don’t want to jinx it
But I’ve got a lucky feeling

It’s over
It’s over
Its over
We’ve got a flat

No more searching on gumtree hour after hour
No more viewings for flats that don’t even have a working shower
It’s over
Track Name: S.D.S.
On your knees pink blotch of bleach
Ransom money at the end of a lease
Up a ladder, stain out of reach
Three hundred quid that I desperately need
Cut all the grass, sweep up the leaves
Beg and scrape make the landlord pleased
Blue tack marks must stay unseen
Deposit, come back Safe to me
