Ghost Farm 02:46
Wet Chicken 03:12
Don't Get Your Chicken Wet I slipped on a snot rock Got a mechanical Healed all my wounds With a new-age botanical Called my couturier koo-TOOR-ee-ey about my torn costumery But she was on holiday on the slopes at Verbier Don't let dismay ruin your day There's only one phrase you need to say Don't get your chicken wet Decided on a hard left Acting on a hunch and down came the rains fucking up my lunch So a plate of charcuterie and a wine in red what's this Tom-foolery it's missing all the bread
The Ships 03:06
The Caller 03:23
I am Free 03:12
I am Free Pacing because the time has come my mind racing with what needs done thoughts jumping Heart thumping pushing out of my chest Unsure but determined like a fledgling from the nest The cage door creeks open fresh air rushes in The world has spoken it is time to begin Time for action No time for regret Time for reflection Time to move on but never forget I am free


"I’m very much a fan of Manipulant’s work. Perhaps best of all, it’s not my usual music, but I deeply appreciate it because it always shows me new worlds that unfold with fearlessness, creativity, and edge. Here, as usual, each track taken individually is its own universe, yet the album still absolutely holds together as a whole. Now that’s art."
