You cannot die if your Andy Kaufman A clown can't smile when he wears the mask The biggest joke never can be tasteful What you don't know, you'll never have to ask To love to live the life, it means to laugh To love to live the life, it's time to go It drives you on, the pressure till its gone A blissful emptiness will guide you through the days When going back to the prematernal sack The sleeping ecstasy can only be a phase To brings the labour pain You cannot hide if your Andy Kaufman Unless your friends carry on the game In 30 years people can forget you How many more disappear from fame To love to live the life it means to laugh (it’s all you need) To feel the smile that hides behind the lie This is it, your out of time Raise the curtains, lock your eyes On the moon, you stand alone Come back to earth and join the show To love to live the life, it means to laugh (it’s all you need) To feel the smile that hides behind the lie To love to live the life, it means to laugh (it’s all you need) To love to live the life, it's time to show You cannot die if you’re Andy Kaufman

Lyrics to Blue-Eyed Witch of the North She's a blue eyed witch of the north A blue eyed witch of the north And she took my son, the only one, away from here to fall in love His life is happy and well but I wish he'd break from her spell She's a blue eyed witch of the north In the brain and body she haunts A pervading ghost who cares the most, his hunger sated by the host His life is round as a sphere but the old world will always be here And maybe your love, is long left behind It's closer in miles, a trail he will find When a spindle pops the balloon He will wake and travel back soon She's a blue eyed witch of the north A blue eyed witch of the north And she took my son, the only one, away from here to fall in love His life is happy and well but I wish he'd break from her spell

It's nice to know you, for you are everything that makes me smile The moon is in me, and you're the earth - so let me stay a while. I was drifting through the galaxy in search of light Only you could give me comfort in the endless night Together, we have found a balance that can build the day In harmony we're spinning to create the waves It's nice to know you It's nice to know you, the deja vu goes back a billion years Our love was growing from the dust into the perfect spheres This connection is the link on which our life depends It can't be broken, I will circle you until the end Together, we have found a balance that can build the day In harmony we're spinning to create the waves It's nice to know you Instrumental This is all I want it to be Through the waves, our love is the sea Take them up, bring them down for for a while Reflect the stars and see me smile It’s nice to, so nice to Just to know you

Lyrics to Here's to you, Ralph Steadman World War was the trauma that brought renaissance back Your trail led from Wirral to Wales when they attacked With life on the edge of a knife creation bloomed And inside of you, the conflict will always burn You learned a trade, escaped the dungeon Joined the swing of post-war London Took a punch and ended up in New York Sketching the rich and drawing the poor Here's to you, Ralph Steadman To you, Ralph Steadman (3) We all should tribute The man who came from our town Outside, the bullets and bombs and madness reigned In School a tyrannical master did the same With fear of authority planted in your soul You take control of the fire that's in your art The place was right, and you got lucky Drew the Derby in Kentucky Brother Hunter said 'Let's go on a trip' And what a trip, the life that you lived Here's to you Ralph Steadman to you Ralph Steadman (3) We all should tribute The man who came from our town Repeat Chorus Closing Instrumental

A Greek Tragedy If I could help you, i'd throw my arms around you Tell all the world i've found you, and bring you in from you the cold If I could save you, I'd make all the princes crave you They'll throw all their wealth behind you Then turn your waters to gold It's the time, it's the time To believe in what's right For our hope, and our health Spread the Wealth, Spread the wealth If I could build you, I'd take all the things that kill you Then bring in the skills to give you The chance to evolve What of tomorrow? Why be the thief who borrowed Pay all your debts with sorrow and thrive in what you make It's the time, it's the time To believe in what's right For our hope, and our health Spread the Wealth, Spread the wealth Instrumental We all need to change (3) Need to change It's the time, it's the time To believe in what's right For our hope, and our health Spread the Wealth

Lyrics to Light Sleeper: The darkness brings an inner peace The boredom makes me calm I gather up revolving thoughts And solve them one by one For 20 years it comes and goes This phantom of the night When times are hard and I can’t sleep She whispers till it’s light Light Sleeper is my name And I know that I will see her once again I truly am alone and sound In the early hours The meditations settle me Whilst emptiness devours The lady helps me drift away; The siren strikes me dead With softly spoken promises She dances round my head Light Sleeper is my name And I know that I will see her once again The seekers of the solace of the night Will find the one who makes them feel alright Light Sleeper x 4 then Instrumental Although I wish there was a cure Inside I am okay She helps me with the dark routines To then survive the day Light Sleeper is my name I know that she will see me once again Light Sleeper (repeat to end) -Video Upload powered by https://www.TunesToTube.com

The Homebody 04:37
I'm just a homebody, using my time Caring for baby and walking the line Chasing the tasks from a roundabout list Then turning to something i've missed An eye on the housework, an ear on a tune Washing up dishes and planning a ruse In a weird, wonderful way I don't miss earning a wage An unknown company slave Now works for his babe I'm just a homebody, and in the town The hair dresser says there's not many around To playgrounds and pools and to parents we roam Each second i'm lucky to know The laundry is endless, the nappies, the same To love and be love is the noblest game In a weird, wonderful way I don't miss earning a wage An unknown company slave Now works for his babe An eye on the housework, an ear on a tune Washing up dishes and planning a ruse In a Weird, Wonderful Way I don't miss earning a wage An unknown company slave Now works for his babe

Lyrics to I Lost My Wife To Candy Crush From amateurs to generals It sank its teeth, infected all She plays it for a minute more A minute turns to years Our home descends to anarchy The children run like cherokees And on the bed so quietly She’s playing on my fears And on Mother’s Day The present that I gave Has turned into something i'll smash If she can be cured, i'll pay cash I lost my wife to candy crush I lost my wife to candy crush It makes her mind go out of touch She can’t put down the game She sold her life to candy crush She sold her life to candy crush And I don’t get to see her much It’s driving me insane Here's what I seek; Attention all week Her eyes to be focused on me And not on the phone, playing alone, please girl, will you come back home? Instrumental I lost my wife to candy crush (2) It makes her mind go out of touch She can’t put down the game She sold her life to candy crush (2) And I don’t get to see her much It’s driving me insane It took my wife away I want her back today And candy crush will pay

Lyrics to Please Don’t Be Cool Please don't be cool Act like a fool Trip over your shoes Like a clown with the blues It says on the tin That the people who win Are the ones who don't need to be cool Why should you be Cooler than thee? Wrapped up in chains Like a goat in the rain Get up from the dirt And don't suffer the hurt Baby see you don't need to be cool Instrumental Pack up your dreams Strange though they seem Don't leave yourself at home If strange is your vibe Wear it with pride And watch as they enter your zone Instrumental Please don't be cool That's not your tool Don't use it to fix All the self-aware bricks They act like a wall That will topple and fall When they see you don't need to be cool It's the truth you don't need to be cool Get real, you don't need to be cool It's the truth you don't need to be cool

Sanctioned They've got my picture They've got my name They've got my number I'm in their game I got sanctioned by the powers that be I got sanctioned, now my money ain't free Take the floor from under, rip it from me, jack Pop the grand illusion that insurance pays you back Oh Oh, I got sanctioned Oh, Oh, I got sanctioned Oh, oh I got sanctioned I had a meeting But I forgot The girl confused me They change a lot I got sanctioned, by the powers that be I got sanctioned, now my asshole will bleed Take the floor from under, rip it from me, jack Pop the grand illusion that insurance pays you back Oh Oh, I got sanctioned Oh, Oh, I got sanctioned Oh, oh I got sanctioned Instrumental They work in chaos They change the rules Until you wonder What kind of fools? I got sanctioned by the powers that be I got sanctioned, on the grass I will feed Take the floor from under, rip it from me, jack Pop the grand illusion that insurance pays you back Instrumental Oh Oh, I got sanctioned Oh, Oh, I got sanctioned Oh Oh, I got sanctioned

about

This 2017 album by Ice Cutters was recorded at mostly home with drums overdubbed at a studio in Brynford, Holywell. It is a mellow, melodic album. Released by Junebug Records, a Record Label / Record Company based in Wales, UK.

Andy Kaufman Lives is inspired by the Island Records releases of the early 70's. with influences including John Cale, Cat Stevens, Nick Drake, Brian Wilson / The Beach Boys, Marc Bolan / T-Rex, Duncan Browne, Al Stewart, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Big Star, The Velvet Underground & Nico, Gene Clark, The Byrds, Nirvana & REM. The centrepieces of the album are two songs about people - performance artist Andy Kaufman and 'Gonzo' artist Ralph Steadman. Ralph lived in my hometown of Abergele in his formative years, and I am a big fan of his artwork. The rumours about Andy Kaufman faking his own death, and the subsequent mystery played a big part in setting the tone and feel of the album.
