about

These are some treats from the archives: they tunes were recorded under the name The Peppermint Engine, which was KFM's psych-pop alter-ego (featuring, among the usual cast of characters, John from Egghead. and some Ergs), and was the name I would have used for KFM had we not already put out a few singles, cause it's a much better name. A few of these songs appeared on "Half Baked" a very limited cd-r (I believe 16 copies were made) we released as part of a benefit show.

Track Name: Heloise's Epiphany
Heloise, beautician’s assistant, what does her life hold in store?
[E-E7-A-A7-F#m]
She clips, and she curls, and she shampoos the girls, does she want for something more?[F#m-B-Bm-Dm-B-B7]
Heloise, beautician’s assistant, tries to escape into dreams
[E-E7-A-A7-F#m]
To begin to live because time’s closing in and life’s shorter than it seems [F#m-B-Bm-Dm-B-B7]

And oh! Heart be still…[F#m-B]
What did you feel when you took the pill [A-E]
Did it open your eyes [F#m-B]
Sweet Heloise did it alter your mind? [Dm-B-B7]
Heloise, beautician’s assistant, just waking up to the truth
[E-E7-A-A7-F#m]
That just cause it’s called a permanent, it won’t last forever [Sweet Heloise] [A-B-E-B-A7]
That just cause it’s called a permanent, it won’t last forever [Sweet Heloise] [A-B-E-B-A7]
And just cause it’s called a permanent, it won’t last forever Heloise…
[A-B-E-B-A-B-E]
Track Name: The Things That Grow Inside Your Skull
Let me tell you all about the interesting plant life in your skull
B – E B – E B – E B – E
And when the lights are out, in the places you can’t see it grows
A — D A – D A – D A – D
Feeding upon your dreams producing paisley leaves
G – C G – C F#

Let me tell you all about the interesting creatures in your skull
A strange menagerie, that feeds upon the paisley leaves that grow
Where the jungle begins, beyond all consciousness

Let me introduce you to the zookeeper who lives inside your skull
A master of bestiaries, he keeps all of the creatures in control
Gathering their droppings, for fertilizing dreams

And let me tell you all about the interesting plant life in your skull
And when the lights are out, in the places you can’t see it grows
Feeding upon your dreams producing paisley leaves…
