I'm Dead 03:45
I'M DEAD I'm dead Flies have laid eggs in my head their maggot brood don't give a damn Yeah what I did or what I said I'm dead Yeah they closed the lid on me and now the dark is all I see but in a strange way I feel free What happened to my electricity? What happened to my bodies energy? What happened to my soul and all my thoughts and all my goals? and all my friends and all my foes and all I've seen.... I'm dead I never been no fuckin' slave I never took more than I gave so you can dance upon my grave I'm dead I never been no god damn saint careful the picture that you paint prayers and angels man I ‘aint. What happened to my electricity? What happened to my body’s chemistry? What happened to my soul and all my thoughts and all my goals? and all my friends and all my foes and all I've seen… I'm dead I never been no god damn saint careful the picture that you paint prayers and angels man I ‘aint I'm dead Yeah they closed the lid on me and now the dark is all I see but in a strange way I feel free

Last Song 02:29
LAST SONG Came across a picture it wasn’t you but it looked like you and and they act like you I want to make you an offer how about a bunch of cash for a punch in the face I’ll lay down on the ceiling and count the tiles on the floor you can count to ten again and again I’ve got that crooked feeling this day is clouding over turn that radio on Is this the last song we’ll ever hear? I’m tearing up the free way my jaw is on the floor and it feels so good Hells just around the corner the devils got my back like I knew he would I start to falling backwards I never been no island I’m making mountains of mole-hills a storm is brewing in my head Turn that radio on Is this the last song?

Ex = Out 03:47
Ex = Out This is my one mistake This is my second phase This is my water-line This is my pallatine This is my wasted time This is my words that rhyme This is my waking chime This is my sacred climb equals out I was a patient man I did not all I planned I couldn’t be no slave I would’nt be no save I was a mockingbird I know it sound absurd I promise you received My brains are in my feet Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
4.
ANGELS AND DEVILS They say the night is darkest just before the dawn This can’t go on, this can’t go on What is the colour of the cloud you lye upon? As fast as long as fast as long All out, empty is the way of things And things connect to other things And they connect to other things These things are broken and you know And then the sound of angels The down and the dread And then the sound of devils Inside your head The morning comes early around here I think you’ll find Make no mistake, you big mistake! They run along a little and then they break and then the break and then they break Your lines run left to right along the lines and through the lines and back the lines until they reach their end And things connect to other things These things are broken and you know And then the sound of angels The down and the dread And then the sound of devils Inside your head Ho oh And then the sound of angels The down and the dread And then the sound of devils Inside your head

There Was a Boy (free) 02:19
THERE WAS A BOY There was a boy who was always afraid Of everything and nothing, of how he was made Of the thoughts in his head Floating feathers of lead Of towers in the sky and ways to wake the dead Lift yourself boy Trip yourself boy Try yourself boy You may believe in nothing but.. Towns these days, really take him away And hold his head way down under the clouds they trade A thousand miles in his head fogot that he’d eaten the bread ‘Round and round and turning down until he’s dead Lift yourself boy Trip yourself boy Try yourself boy You may believe in nothing but.. Ba da da da ba da da da da da da da da

This Town 03:27
THIS TOWN This town is dead feel like I’m in a cheap cartoon Nobody bothered drawing any other characters and I Begin to walk an empty city under a badly painted moon ‘til I fade out This town is dead feel like my heads a big balloon I float above all these atlas pages I’ll get to the end soon My heart claims that there be monsters in this room Big head fly high But I can see that there’s something amazing beyond this town tonight And I’ll concede the eyes of this beholder are older not wiser tonight This town is dead my fingers walk until they’re beat This box is hanging like an empty carcass my grave will be this seat My head claims that there be nothing to this sound Big heart kill time But I can see that there’s something amazing beyond this town tonight And I’ll concede the eyes of this beholder are older not wiser tonight When I was a boy I had just dreams and no fears the sound of the city was music to my ears the moon and the stars are reflections in your tears and I am free tonight This town is dead feel like I’m in a cheap cartoon Nobody bothered drawing any other characters and I Begin to walk an empty city under a badly painted moon ‘til I fade out
7.
Believe Me 04:57
Believe Me The sound of your voice It leaves me no chance of healing Sold plans to the boys Cut the brakes and then sent them speeding Charred skin to the bone Sold your bridge as your world was burning Tore everything down Sleep sound as my house is crumbling Believe Me Blue skies up ahead At least I can make you see them A trick of the light Your dead but you think you’re breathing I died long ago When the numbers became my seasons In the wires in the pipes Faded into the great uneven This space is a cage Won’t be long ‘til they put me under My face hasn’t changed even since I been torn asunder Same talk about change My sense is that nothings moving What happened my name Did it ever mean anything here? Believe Me
8.
PEACE AT LAST Have I found peace at last? I really think so Have I found peace at last? You know I don’t know Have I found peace at last? You know I hope so But I can never be sure I can never be sure Shall we wake one morn in Spring Glad at heart of everything Won’t let it in on me, leave it all behind I build the time for me, 3000 clocks I wind The whispered cage descends all around us now But I can never be sure I can never be sure Shall we wake one morn in Spring Glad at heart of everything Have I found peace at last?

Home 05:39
HOME Yeah when I was eighteen, I looked for an exit Yeah while I was waiting I made for a train line The parrallels were on fire, my one point perspective I wasn’t no number, I wasn’t no peasant She looked like an angel, she looked like a devil The lights were running through my head The colours were changing I came from the country I made for the city I came from the country I made for the city A charge of white lightening moved me between shadows Squared a circle and then some, made my mistakes in the half-light I caught a fistful of nothing my prayers rubbed right off my fingers She looked like a devil, her colours were fading I came from the country I made for the city I came from the country I made for the city And I found home, and I found home and I found home and I found home Let me tell you about it.. Yeah I could hear screaming, my ear was just like a wiindow My eyelids were shut tight my body felt like a dead weight The clocks all stopped on the main street, the earth was clinging to my feet A jet trail scarred the sky deep red The scream was inside of my head I came from the country I made for the city I came from the country I made for the city And I found home, and I found home and I found home and I found home

about

Press for Glimmermen’s I'm Dead LP:

"a record of nine completely individual, unique songs – a feat which is surprisingly rare in a modern industry where musicians, especially smaller ones, rarely step outside of their comfort zone. I’m Dead really is a pleasure to listen to.’ - Indulge-Sound (UK)

"Glimmermen shine brightly. Look no further than 'Last Song', two and a half minutes of near-perfect power pop, or bittersweet lead single, 'This Town', as addictive as chocolate heroin" - Hot Press

There's a grittiness and urgency here that thrills, the debut album from this Dublin trio hits you like a punch in the midriff - Irish Independent

"brimming with bounce, grounded in guitars and oozing melodies from too many influences to mention. - Dublin Concerts

"A raw but engaging record full of accomplished and powerful songs" - Irish Daily Star

"The forces of light and darkness collide in fractured bass-and-guitar interplay and raw-throated bellows" -Spin (US)

"Sparse..witty rock...Glimmermen deliver a clever back to basics record" - Sunday Business Post

"The title track sideblinds you with its Ruts-style ska...if you’re ever aching for a hit of Wire or The Members (and why ever not?), then you’ll get it here" - Irish Times

Glimmermen know exactly the sound they want to make & that's something we want to hear". Le Cool Magazine Dublin ... more
