about

Luke Escombe and the Corporation Sydney, Australia

Soaked in the spirit of the old bluesmen but with a lyrical style born of the internet age, Luke Escombe's songs are raw, raucous, subversive and funny.

Track Name: Drink more coffee
They put a brand new machine in the office canteen
so everyone can get their little fix of caffeine
Keep em all workin till 9pm
Till the sun comes up and they do it again
They listen real slow
but they talk real quick
Clock on the wall goes tick tick tick tick tick tick...
Track Name: Creeper Vine
Had a flat screen TV, HD, 3D
Wife, cat, family
They took it all away from me
Now I'm sittin here freezin in an empty house
holding a tin can
If I ever get out of debt I'll be a rich man

Now I can't pay my rent
no help from government
My friend said to me "man it's this economy
I'm flat broke too"
I said you got nothing man?
He said yeah
I said lucky you
If I ever get out of debt I'll be a rich man

Feels like I'm livin in a hole that keeps gettin deeper
I'm in quicksand up to my neck
spmebody throw me a line
I need a creeper vine

I met a man in the car park of the Westfield
He said brother I know just how you feel
Your life's a misery
but you're only 33
You can live rent free
if you join the army
So now I'm gettin on a plane to Afghanistan
to kill some Taliban
Cos if I never get out of debt
I may as well be a dead man

Feels like I'm livin in a hole that keeps gettin deeper
I'm in quicksand up to my neck
spmebody throw me a line
I need a creeper vine

Drunk in Bangkok on some R and R
Talkin to a pretty lady in a titty bar
I ask "how much?"
she tells me how much
I say that's too much baby don't you understand
then I show her the tattoo on my left hand:
"If I ever get out of debt I'll be a rich man"

Feels like I'm livin in a hole that keeps gettin deeper
I'm in quicksand up to my neck
spmebody throw me a line
I need a creeper vine
Track Name: 30 year old woman
I been out in the clubs
I been out in the bars
All I see is these young girls who look like movie stars
But they don't do it for me
Truth be told
I need a woman who's at least 30 years old

Well their eyes may be wide
But their minds are so small
These young girls they talk so loud
But they know nothing at all
I need a lady who knows how to move
So sure of herself she got nothing left to prove
she can be clean
or she can be dirty
She just gotta be at least thirty

I need a lady who can hold her liquor
Who knows how to slow it down
Not just go quicker and quicker
These young girls, they're a whole lotta noise
I need a lady with rhythm and poise
She can be coy
or she can be bold
She just gotta be at least 30 years old
Track Name: Julia
Julia
Baby please come back home
Since you've been gone
My heart has turned to stone

Julia
I hold a candle in my hand
What has happened to my land
I can't even understand

Julia
Forgive me my sin
I'm a hellbound man
I let the devil win

Julia
I been out walking the streets
I see your face in every woman I meet
