about

The Hellblinki Sextet's third full length album “Oratory” is patchwork of songs, incidental music, and found sound. A tale of death, love, war, deadly poison, zombies, and the orange hamburger, "Oratory" could be described as psycho-cabaret, southern fried with guerrilla operatics, or possibly as pirate-blues, infused with a sort of punk rock cinematic splendor. Whatever words are used to define this epic masterpiece, it is truly a journey through the bent, bizzare and beautiful.

Track Name: The End
Look down in this deep dark hole
beneath the ground, here's a ticket to a land below
see the neon lights and the glitter and the shine
My heart skips a beat almost every time.

A little bit of change in my palm you know,
it's a quick sudden drop, but not far to go.
Hold tight on to your hat until the end.

Just behind this mirrored glass,
lies a place of splendor with a hint of the past,
a deep sense of style and high romance,
you'll not give worry a second glance.

A little bit of change in my palm you know,
a quick little prick and in we go.
Don't you dare look back until the end!

Follow, follow, follow me.
Follow my watch with the eyes you see.
Time will stop on a frozen sea.
Your glass is full not half empty.

All that I say is the truth you know.
Tell me which way you'd like to go.
You can only take it with you until the end.
Track Name: Kerosene
Sittin 'round another weary day.
The wild times seemed to get away.
Goin' down south on a summer day.
That's the way.
Stop on by that Wacky Wayne.
Jokers revenge with a Puddin' Tain.
That look in her eye may not be sane.
It's sure to rain.

Kerosene, Gasoline, Dynamite,
Will make things right.

All the Little Babies Goin' out Tonight.
Gonna Get wound up Gonna Get real tight.
Every little thing's gonna blow tonight.
I'm gonna sit here laughin' in the firelight.
Gonna sit here laughin' in the firelight.
gonna sit here dancin' in the firelight.
gonna sit here Screamin' in the firelight.
Gonna sit here laughin' whoo HA!

32 ounces, 98 degrees.
Air's so thick it'll make you sneeze.
Body for love and a brain for sleeze.
Oh Momma Please.
Pile on into my oldsmobile.
Coughin' black smoke and a broken wheel.
It's a hotwired car and the tires squeal.
Ain't no big deal.

Out at the bar on a Saturday night.
Tension is high we're all so tight.
A round of shots will make things right.
Outta Sight.
All the kids are breaking things.
Sacred vows and diamond rings.
Throwing chairs and making scenes.
It's an evil fling.
Track Name: Bella Ciao
Una mattina mi son svegliato
O bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao
Una mattina mi son svegliato
E ho trovato l'invasor

O partigiano porta mi via
O bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao
O partigiano porta mi via
Per che mi sembra di morir

E se io muoio da partigiano
O bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao
E se io muoio da partigiano
Tu mi devi seppellir

Seppellire sulla montagna,
O bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao,
Seppellire sulla montagna,
Sotto l'ombra d'un bel fior.

E tutti quelli che passerano,
O bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao
E tutti quelli che passeranno
E poi diranno: "Che bel fior"

È questo il fiore del partigiano
O bella ciao, bella ciao, bella ciao ciao ciao
È questo il fiore del partigiano
Morto per la libertà
Track Name: Ruckus
Old Aunt Donna went to town
Raise a ruckus tonight.
Ridin' a billy goat leadin' a hound
Raise a ruckus tonight.
Hound dog bark and the billy goat jump
Raise a ruckus tonight.
Threw aunt Donna on her rump
Raise a ruckus tonight.

Come along little childern come along
while the moon is shinin' bright,
Got to get onboard down by the river shore
Gonna raise a ruckus tonight.

Some folks say that a preacher won't steal.
I caught two in my potato field.
One Had a shovel and the other had a Hoe
Diggin' my potatoes up row by row.

My old master said to me.
When I die I'm gonna set you free
He got old and his head got bald.
I think he forgot about dyin' at all

Wanna get to heaven here's what you do
Put your feet in a mutton ste
when the devil reaches in with his red right hand.
Gonna ooze on through to the promised land.

Went to the river to be baptized.
Tripped on a root and I got Capsized.
River was strong and the preacher was weak.
I went to hell from the bottom of the creek.
Track Name: La La La
Can You Believe that I've had a reprieve
From the down and the dirty and lame
Can it be taken for fact, that not one will act
the blind, the forgiven or sane

Towers of sand, and the sleight of a hand,
where all the kings horses have trod
agast with the thrill, of a two dollar bill,
and the spit and the polish of sod

Up against me, and the wonder of Troy,
and the smile on a dog you once knew
We’re cooped up in here, with the smell of despair,
and the ghost of a bird that once flew

So take it from me, I'd take you to task,
I'll give 'til it hurts or we're free.
And each of the wild ones, under their masks,
will turn, run screaming, and flee...
Track Name: Tango
Dawn comes, it will break too soon, love.
And it's light will call you
To the world you've been denying.
Dance now,
In these fleeting moments
Before you leave me,
Give in to what your heart wants.

Oh Darling, Dance, while you have me
The end is in our sight,
When you are gone
Know this melody
will linger lilting in the night.

Longing, watching the horizon.
My burden is to find you
Under a dark and empty sky.
Confounded, children in the forest
the dance will choose a partner
when the melody plays on
Track Name: Can Be Free
When I grow up I’m gonna say what I please
I’ll take what I want to satisfy all my needs
I'll have what I choose and I’ll take it for free
No one will ever, tell me what to believe
Take Me Away where I can Be Free
I Can Be Free

Take a look now what I expected to see
These metaphorical chains became a web of deceit
Possession and love they are two brothers at odds
And these torn hunks of flesh are just the toys of the gods

Now that I’m grown perhaps I see it too clear
Through all of the pain, the smoke and the fear
Freedom is fleeting a passing moment in time
Next time I catch sight, I’m gonna jump on and ride.
Track Name: Wicked World
Take a look into my eyes and tell me what you see.
Does something in here frighten you or does it set you free
I'll tell you of my petty dreams, and petty miseries,
Yes take a look into my eyes and tell me what you see.
Out there in the wicked world, Truth is never what it seems,
While up here in my lonely room, my dreams become reality
And they will surely set us free, Yes they will surely set us free.
Take a look into my eyes and tell me what you see.

When you are young, people always say
Don’t look back you must obey
For centuries now truth is like a bell
Get up off your ass and raise some hell

Take this piece of fingernail and put it in your box.
With melted wax and Dragon's blood and lots of pretty rocks.
We'll pray for peace and harmony we'll meet the sailors at the docks
All the answers that we seek lie trapped within your box
Up here in my lonely room the two of us sit down to tea.
While out there in the Wicked World a thousand ships sail off to sea

Those of us who've learned to dream will try to grasp the soul
That nonexistent essence that makes each one of us whole
So touch me and confide in me and hold me when the night is cold
Yes those of us who've learned to dream will try to grasp the soul.
Up here in my lonely room the truth is never what it seems
While out there in the wicked world my dreams become reality
And they will surely set us free Yes they will surely set us free
Take a look into my eyes and tell me what you see.
Track Name: No Place to Go
Here on the edges of no place to go
here in the space between twilight and dream
I give you this token of undying love
and laugh as we fade into nothing at all

Here for a moment, then way to far gone
past where the shadows won't follow
I hear a sweet voice through the unlifting fog
A laugh can mean nothing, Nothing at all

Yesterdays paper lies out on the lawn
it's hidden agendas will fade in the sun
the two of us caught in a sudden downpour
Laughing though this is the end of the world

Sayanora, Goodbye, until we meet again,
some happier time than tomorrow
There is no less and there shall be no more
here between twilight and no place to go
Track Name: Indelicate Brew
Sleep my dear, please rest now
for the angels that stand at your bed
Memory will pale as your tired heart fails
these angels have come for your head
a fall from the stage for I've read the last page
but these angels will swallow your dread

get the keys from the Jailers invite the dead sailors
and all the young ladies of Spain,
we’ll dance on the caskets heads will roll into baskets
I hope that I’ll see you again

and who would have thought it would all end like this,
in the back of our shack built for two
relax dear, lie still, I'll drink to us both
this sweet poison that I made for you
here's to the angels that dance on the rim
of a glass of indelicate brew

sleeping and sifting past images drifting
I'm sensing the end of this show
your hand in my hand the Angels still laughing
they smile as they watch us go
Together at last, forever my love
the truest that we'll ever know
Track Name: The River Song
Take me on down to the river, Place where I was born
The Savannah opened up and spit me on out Out upon her shore.
Take me on down to the river I'm goin' Home

The River Rolls and Rambles The River calls my name
The River speaks with a Holy voice In drought and and sun and rain.

Ain't got no Cause to worry Ain't got no reason to moan
I got a lot of friends that live down here, I won't be all alone

Each one from the river one day will return
The river calls and each will fall taking everything we’ve learned

Spent Some time in Durham once called Savannah my home
I went on back to Augusta town back on there to roam.

Throw my body in the river take me out to sea
All the kings horses and all the kings men ill never rescue me

Now that you have heard my story, now That I have played my song.
Tell 'em Hellblinki was here for awhile Hellblinki's been here and gone.
