about

Bursting with psychedelic swirling guitars, electrifying riffs and explosive vocals, ‘Lucid Again’ is the third LP from Melbourne's unstoppable CLOWNS. The nine new tracks seamlessly combines a powerful punch of pop, punk, garage and hardcore. From the exhilarating guitar-work on album opener and title-track ‘Lucid Again’, to the catchy melody lines on the first single ‘Dropped My Brain’ and commanding chorus on 9-minute epic ‘Not Coping’, these songs are exploding with the band’s signature distortion-drenched sound and rambunctious energy, however the record is distinctly different from their previous releases and is especially evident from the scuzzy-psychadelia infused throughout.

Track Name: Lucid Again
THERE ARE TOOLS USED
TO CONTROL US
THAT WE HAVE NO IDEA OF
THERE ARE PEOPLE LOOKING THROUGH YOUR
WINDOWS AS YOU JUST LIVE, BUT…
WHAT DO THEY WANT?
THEY ARE THERE, WE KNOW IT
BUT WHAT DO THEY WANT?

THERE IS SOMEONE LOOKING AT ME
IN THE MIRROR WHILE I’M NAKED IN THE SHOWER
BUT WHAT DO THEY WANT?
THERE IS SOMETHING UNDERNEATH ME
WHEN I’M SWIMMING IN THE OCEAN, JUST WATCHING
BUT WHAT DO THEY WANT?
THEY ARE THERE, WE KNOW IT
BUT DO THEY WANT?
THE ONLY THING THAT WE ARE SURE OF
IS THAT NO ONE REALLY KNOWS…

ARE WE ALIVE? 
OR ARE WE JUST EXISTENTIAL?
SO I CHECK MY VITAL SIGNS
PULL MY HAIR AND THERE’S NO PAIN
SIGH, LUCID AGAIN
Track Name: Like A Knife At A Gunfight
YOU WANNA CATCH ME
YOU’LL NEVER FIND ME
I KNOW THESE STREETS
LIKE THE BACK OF MY HAND, BUT
PUTTING IT BLUNTLY
THERE SIMPLY WON’T BE
AN EASY WAY OUT OF THIS LIFELESS PARADOX

NO INTERMISSION
TO MY OBSESSION
I’LL SEE YOU DOWN AT THE CATHEDRAL
BECAUSE WITHOUT THIS
WE’RE FUCKING USELESS
DESPITE THE TERROR
WE’RE ON TOP OF THE WORLD, BUT

I WENT TO CHURCH TODAY
GOT ON MY KNEES AND FORCIBLY PLEASURED GODS
THAT I DON’T BELIEVE IN
CIVILNESS IS PRODUCT OF MY SILENCE
BUT I HAVE MY FAITH IN DRUGS, SEX AND VIOLENCE

20/20 VISION IN MY HINDSIGHT
NOW I’M WALKING TOWARDS THE LIGHT
BUT LATELY I’VE BEEN DISENFRANCHISED
BY THIS WHOLE DAMN WORLD
FEELING LIKE A KNIFE AT A GUNFIGHT

THIS IS THE START OF THE END
IT’S WHERE WE LOSE GRIP OF THE WHEEL
START FISHTAILING, SPIRALLING DOWNARDS
IT’S BEEN SO NICE TO KNOW YOU, I GOT

20/20 VISION IN MY HINDSIGHT
NOW I’M WALKING TOWARDS THE LIGHT
AND LATELY I HAVE BEEN FEELING DISENFRANCHISED
BY THIS WHOLE DAMN WORLD
FEELING LIKE A KNIFE AT A GUNFIGHT
Track Name: Dropped My Brain
I CAN’T STAND YOUR TOXICITY
IT MAKES ME SICK
THE WAY YOU ARE
ALL UP INSIDE MY HEAD
I CAN’T STAND THE LOOK ON YOUR STUPID FACE
WHEN YOU THINK YOU ARE HELPING
BUT YOU ARE JUST CREATING MORE BAD

I DROPPED MY BRAIN ON THE FLOOR TODAY
AND I THINK IT’S PROBABLY BETTER THAT WAY
I DROPPED MY BRAIN ON THE FLOOR TODAY
AND I THINK IT’S BETTER

I CAN’T TAKE THIS ANXIETY
IT JUST MAKES ME SO (GOD DAMN SICK)
FEELS LIKE A BLADE 
IN THE SIDE OF MY HEAD
AND I LOVE THE IRONY
OF HOW YOU STOOD BY
AND SCREAMED BLOODY MURDER
WHEN YOU HAVE BEEN THE CULPRIT

I DROPPED MY BRAIN ON THE FLOOR TODAY
BUT I THINK IT’S PROBABLY BETTER THAT WAY
I DROPPED MY BRAIN ON THE FLOOR TODAY
AND I THINK IT’S BETTER

IT’S A STRANGE SENSATION
CHARACTER ASSASSINATION IS
IT’S EASY TO HATE
BUT HARD TO HIT FROM FAR AWAY

I CAN’T STAND YOUR TOXICITY
IT MAKES ME SICK
THE WAY YOU ARE ALL UP INSIDE MY HEAD
I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THE LOOK ON YOUR STUPID FACE
WHEN KARMA COMES ROUND
AND PUTS YOU BACK IN YOUR PLACE

I DROPPED MY BRAIN ON THE FLOOR TODAY
AND I THINK IT’S PROBABLY BETTER THAT WAY
I DROPPED MY BRAIN ON THE FLOOR TODAY
I DROPPED MY BRAIN ON...
I DROPPED MY BRAIN ON THE FLOOR
Track Name: Pickle
I’VE WOKEN UP IN GUTTER
TURNING SHADES
OF YELLOW, BLACK AND BLUE
THE ONLY THING KEEPING MYSELF ALIVE
IS A MEMORY OF YOU
TAKE THIS IOUP
ROMISE THAT I’LL DO
A LITTLE BETTER NEXT TIME

I’VE GOT MY SELF IN A DOWNWARD SPIRAL
AND THERE’S NOTHING YOU CAN DO
THE ONLY SUBSTANCE IN YOUR LIFE
IS A BIT OF SUBSTANCE OF ABUSE
SELF DIAGNOSING
SELF PRESCRIPTING
SELF DESTRUCTING
PICKLE
Track Name: Noise In The Night
HEAR A NOISE IN THE NIGHT
IT WAKES ME UP WITH A BIT OF A FRIGHT
CAN SEE THEIR EYES BURNING BRIGHT
ILLUMINATING IN THE DARKNESS OF NIGHT
CAN HEAR THEIR VOICE IN MY HEAD
WITH THEIR EXTRA TERRESTRIAL DIALECT
MUST YOU VISIT AT THIS HOUR?
WHY MUST I LIVE MY LIFE SO FRIGHTENED?

SICK THOUGHTS ARE CREEPING IN
WHAT IS IT THAT YOU WANT FROM ME?
IS THIS SOME KIND OF TWISTED GAME?
DO YOU GAIN PLEASURE FROM MY FEAR?
A BOOK FALLS OFF A SHELF
A LIGHT TURNS ON UNEXPLAINABLY
THIS SHIT JUST HAPPENS, RIGHT?
TRYING TO UNCONVINCE MYSELF THAT
ENOUGH PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD HAVE
THOUGHT THEY HAVE FELT SOMETHING SUPERNATURAL TO
NOT COMPLETELY RULE IT OUT AS A
REALISTIC POSSIBILITY, AYE?

SEND HELP!!!

SOME SAY I’M HEARING THINGS
SOME SAY I’M GOING CRAZY
WELL MAYBE I AM CRAZY
COS’ I AM REALLY HEARING THINGS
BUT AS MORE TIME GOES BY
NOTHING HAS HAPPENED
BUT THE NOISE DON’T SUBSIDE
I’LL PUT MY MIND AT EASE
THAT MY LITTLE GUESTS MIGHT JUST COME IN PEACE
CAN SOMEONE TELL ME WHY WE ARE SO AFRAID OF
WHAT IS SIMPLY JUST THE UNEXPLAINED?
I TAKE A BREATH AND WELCOME THIS STRANGE
PRETTY SURE THESE GUESTS ARE ACTUALLY MY MATES

CROP CIRCLE PARTY PROBE
I WANNA GET LOOSE WITH THE UNKNOWN
I WANNA MAKE FRIENDS WITH THE ALIEN BABES
I WANNA FIND THE TRUTH THAT IS OUT THERE ONE DAY

THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE
CAN YOU HANDLE IT? COS’ IT MIGHT HURT
ALL I KNOW IS
I WANT TO BELIEVE
Track Name: Destroy The Evidence
STAB ME IN THE BACK, MY FRIEND
HAVE SOME DECENCY
AND NEVER TELL ME ABOUT IT
WHAT YOU NEVER KNOW CAN’T HURT
ONLY EVER HURTS INSIDE YOUR MORALITY

SHOOT ME IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD
HOLD BACK THE TEARS AS YOU PULL THE TRIGGER
DRAG THE BODY DEEP IN THE BUSH
DEEP ENOUGH SO A DOG’LL NEVER DIG IT UP

I DID A BAD THING
AND NOW I’M GONNA GO BACK

IT’S SENSIBLE TO TREAT OTHERS AS IF THEY ARE YOU
BUT PART OF THE HUMAN CONDITION TO BE FLAWED
YOU KNOW THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN
EVER REALLY JUDGE SOMEONE
IS HOW THE COME BACK FROM HARDSHIP

I DID A BAD THING 
AND NOW I’M GONNA GO BACK
WAS IT THE RIGHT THING TO TELL NO ONE?
I MEAN, WE ALL DO BAD THINGS… DON’T WE?
Track Name: Forensic Science
GETTING AWAY WITH MURDER
IS HARDER THAN YOU THINK
EVERYWHERE THAT YOU GO
YOU ALWAYS LEAVE SOMETHING
A HAIR, A FINGERPRINT... SOME KIND OF DNA
WILL LEAVE A BREAD CRUMB TRAIL
BACK TO YOU ONE DAY
IT’S THE PAINFUL TRUTH

EVEN IF YOU SOMEHOW
GET AWAY THIS TIME
EVEN IF THEY MISS YOU RETURNING
TO THE SCENE OF THE CRIME
NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU RUN
NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU HIDE
THE GUILT FROM YOUR MISDEMEANOUR
WILL EAT YOU UP INSIDE
IT’S THE PAINFUL TRUTH
DAYS MONTHS AND YEARS WILL GO BY
BUT FORENSIC SCIENCE IS A DRAG

THEY WILL PIN YOU DOWN IN THE END
WITH FORENSIC SCIENCE AGAIN
Track Name: Fifteen Minutes Of Infamy
BETWEEN A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE
THERE IS NOWHERE ELSE BUT THE MUD
TO GO THROUGH TO COME CLEAN
AND WHEN YOU HAVE BEEN THIS DIRTY
YOU CAN TRY AND SCRUB IT
BUT YOU CAN’T WASH OFF THE STAIN
FATHER PLEASE FORGIVE ME
BUT I HAVE GOT A SIN
RIGHT NOW TO CONFESS
I’VE BECOME ANOTHER PERSON
I’M AS GOOD AS FINISHED
I’M DEPRESSED THAT I’VE REGRESSED; I’VE REGRET

ALRIGHT, LET IT GO

COULD MAKE A LIST OF EXCUSES
BUT NOTHING WILL EXCUSE THE SHIT YOU HAVE DONE
REEL OF A LIST OF ABUSES
YOU’VE BEEN SUBJECT TO
BUT YOU’VE DONE THAT TO SOMEONE
AND I WAS NEVER THAT HAPPY
BECAUSE I NEVER QUITE SEEMED TO FIT IN
BUT TELL ME HOW IS IT HEALTHY
TO FIT IN SO RIGHT IN WORLD SO SICK?

IT’S ONLY A QUARTER OF AN HOUR
Track Name: Not Coping
WE’LL NEVER FIND OUT IF IT
WAS UNINTENTIONAL OR SUICIDE,
BUT IS IT SAD THAT IT DIDN’T SURPRISE ME
WHEN I FOUND OUT YOU HAD DIED?
OH, WE KNEW YOU WEREN’T ALRIGHT.

IT WAS PRETTY CLEAR YOU CROSSED THE LINE
SOME TIME AGO
BUT THERE WILL BE NO RETURN THIS TIME
OH, WE KNEW YOU WEREN’T ALRIGHT.

BUT WE COULDN’T WATCH YOU SELF DESTRUCTING
SO WE CLOSED YOU OFF AND WE SAID NOTHING
WE TRIED OUR BEST BUT YOU WERE SIMPLY HELPLESS
ALL I KNOW IS WE’RE NOT COPING

THERE, I SAID IT;
ALL I KNOW IS WE’RE NOT COPING
