Floydien Slip I love the House of Wires music, and this is a great look at what came before. One notices how different the style is, but although there are some heavier songs on here, I still enjoy them a lot. Thanks for rereleasing this! Favorite track: Me Minus You.

about

Tracks 1 -11 were originally released on the 1998 CD release. Tracks 12 - 14 were not on the original release. The original CD had a live song on it that has been omitted here but will be included with the planned digital release of a Pivot Clowj live album. The Portion Control cover of Havoc Man has been omitted from this release but will be available for streaming on Soundcloud in the near future. This digital album version keeps the same title "It's not as if it were the end of the world... that was yesterday"

Track Name: Only
I'd like to see the world turn to good instead of waste
with everyone on board the ark, no reason for a flood
I'd like to see the world turn to colors instead of ash
so everyone could see the true creation that it is

In love only only in

I'd like to see my friends up in heaven by my side
singing out the songs of the angels' melody
Track Name: Holy Water
MInd trance in a minute she is closest to the door and she sees no more the only way to fly. Several things await her there forever getting nearer and the only hope is simply thoughts away.

Rebirth anew the only way forget the world forget the flesh it is not murder nor suicide the tide is high - a soothing way to die.

Feed the starving love the poor love thy neighbor as yourself - he's getting older learn this lesson soon. Ticking time moments lost did you know that death is every day? Prepare yourself. Don't let your life be wasted.

Problem solved you're on your way - or so you thought - it is so easy to become inoperate and lazy. So beware best behavior all the time. Prepare yourself. Don't let your life be wasted.
Track Name: Malfunction
Malfunction
Track Name: Me Minus You
Me minus you
what kind of world is this where weapons change to answers and nothing from the past has returned
once again, the cycle has continued. I know it will continue
thoughts don't go away and so my memory stays in you I know even though we never show it.
Have I changed that much? or was it you?

Me minus you
my puppet hand is tweaked and curled - its lost its momentum
free as a bird you are to be and so unfortunate for me
and once again the cycle has continued. I know it will continue
have I changed that much? or was it you?
Track Name: Fair Warning
Could have lied and said you'd seen it coming
Couldn't stand another day
The cold of Winter even though it's Summer
The cold of Winter even though it's Spring
By the time you spend a little money
By the time you spilled a little blood
By the time you've seen it all happen
Streets appear in your sleep. (somehow we didn't know)
Track Name: Love in Vain
micro talking worm like stalking disturbed absorbed accused abused
couldn't find the words so appears to him that he wants her
the right position mutual consent agree that she has feelings quite the same her intent is quite the same
Steven lifts his head up to the buzzing of a box cost him $39 but it couldn't tell the time and he sits so quiet listening to the alarm and its rhyme masks the ringing of the phone so he's alone and will never know it's her.
Poison time an uphill climb a girl in love a boy in love tuned out world forgotten words feelings disappear and it's the end of time.
Track Name: Inside
Silent screams and secret tears were always inside of her. She'd hit the floor, she'd hit the wall, she'd blow her eardrums down the hall.
Track Name: Drifting
My warm soothing light floods the room; creaking floors, dusty TV humming in the distance (quite the distance); softer, softer, softer, softer, gone...
Asleep you start to see yourself. Asleep you start to be something more
softer, softer, softer, gone...
Track Name: Autonomy (extended remix)
You make the waters warm. The wind is cold. I dive.
Out of sea from hiding the coast is clear. I dry.
I look around my room at silly things I find.
I get a broom. I sweep it clean - inside.
We all find it hard sometimes.

She will set you free. It's not the first time. Things haven't changed.
You whisper in my ear "This is not supposed to happen!" We criticize.
Track Name: Doubting (remix)
You head is shaking. I want to cheer you. I want to take your doubts away. Maybe I'll just have to wait... to wait..
It makes me sad to hear your cries
It shakes me up when tears fall
I seek answers, I seek answers, I seek answers.
Questions are obvious; "who's to blame?"
"who's to blame?" (if anyone)
Track Name: Sense
if I could see the sun I wouldn't have to close my eyes
if I could feel the rain I wouldn't have to stay dry
and you know how good it feels
Track Name: Blackout (compilation version)
I like it in the morning when it's still dark. I just wish it weren't so cold.
The sudden shock of the light caused blindness painted in orange
Screaming with the streaming tears, she cried
Invisible sirens burst your ears in orange, brown, black.
Blackout.
Suddenly storming fills your heart from nowhere, past, gone
then suddenly silent from the blackout.
I like it in the morning when It's still dark. I just wish it weren't so cold.
Track Name: Siamese (2014 remix)
I'm boxing with this rogue whose reflection is mine
and I sense his freedom though his so familiar grin tells stories
otherwise the facts are clear, the broken throat; the remaining of the day which seems to coast through the past.
I'm eating with this mime whose relation is mine
and whose laughter leaves an open mouth of food
many times I play this game; always tie my shoe and laugh.
and it always happens just a step away.
Where's freedom now? give it time. looking on...
I'm sitting with this swine whose connection is mine
and perhaps I'll keep on waiting through the night and remaining of the day
and our see the high winds blow and knock the bees off of my back.
Track Name: Autonomy (2013 remix)
You make the waters warm. The wind is cold. I dive.
Out of sea from hiding the coast is clear. I dry.
I look around my room at silly things I find.
I get a broom. I sweep it clean - inside.
We all find it hard sometimes.

She will set you free. It's not the first time. Things haven't changed.
You whisper in my ear "This is not supposed to happen!" We criticize.
