“Wearing Freudian slips like evening gowns / Taking guilt trips from town to town”. The GOASTT (Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger) is a breath of fresh music, courtesy of Charlotte Kemp Muhl and Sean Lennon (John Lennon’s son). Recorded in their own home studio, the duo’s debut release Acoustic Sessions features wonderful quirky lyrics, intricate melodies and two great vocalists. Dive into the Lennon-Kemp Muhl universe right here:

The World Was Made For Men

Music Video

Lyrics

When the world gets dizzy from spinning around,
Gravity gets tired of holding everything down
When the foul prick of time’s unraveling like twine,
When all roads lead to Rome and there’re no words left to rhyme

We’ll make kites from our bones and make shoes from our skin,
And we’ll try to pretend that this world was made for men.

Every tree’s pressed into money and everything tastes the same
When everyone agrees and everything has a name
When the Fish have turned to frogs and the ocean is our cloud
I remember how you looked walking barefoot through the crowd.

We’ll make kites from our bones and make shoes from our skin,
And we’ll try to pretend that this world was made for men.

Now nothing’s left between us besides blood and air,
And every last circle has been turned into a square
There are no cigarettes in the pockets of your vest
No more hellos or goodbyes, no more secrets to confess.

We’ll make kites from our bones and make shoes from our skin
And we’ll try to pretend that this world was made for men

Rainbows In Gasoline

Play

Lyrics

Rainbows in Gasoline golden and green
Chemical sun setting
Like a hundred million chameleon clouds
We are the dinosaurs now

Wearing freudian slips like evening gowns
Taking guilt trips from town to town
Dressed for excess wearing cheaper suits
Walking around in another mans shoes

Why do we give memories eyes and teeth
Like taxidermy dreams
Bury them in gardens under the weeds
Let the willows weep

Wearing freudian slips like evening gowns
Taking guilt trips from town to town
Dressed for excess wearing cheaper suits
Walking around in another mans shoes

What will you do when the moon comes tumbling down

Wearing freudian slips like evening gowns
Taking guilt trips from town to town
Dressed for excess wearing cheaper suits
Walking around in another mans shoes

Lavender Road

Video

Lyrics

Where does the time go down Lavendar Road
Turn left at the post where memories grow
Like weeds in summer snow and firefly galaxies glow

Here we go, pulling up the curtains on the magic show
Heroes and ghosts sit in the front row
Curios, ballerina bones and type of vertigo
Opera glasses like telescopes

Where does young love go down Lavendar Road
Pebbles and planets know how there is no hope
When that red wind blows and all our words go up in smoke

Here we go, pulling up the curtains on the magic show
Heroes and ghosts sit in the front row

Curios, ballerina bones and type of vertigo
Opera glasses like telescopes

And silence echoes down Lavendar Road
Where whine and teardrops flow and rows of graveyards grow
Like white rabbit holes and where they stop nobody knows

Here we go pulling up the curtains on the magic show
Heroes and ghosts sit in the front row
Curios, ballerina bones and type of vertigo
Opera glasses like telescopes

Dead Meat (Sean Lennon)

Music Video

Lyrics

Dead meat
Don’t you know you’re dead meat
You just messed with the wrong team
Better not try and fall sleep now

You’d better run out of here
I’ll close my eyes and count to ten
And then I’ll come find you
Yeah

You’re gonna get what you deserve
Gonna get what you deserve
In the end you’re gonna learn
How you get what you deserve

Too much
Now you know to much
Only one choice you leave for us
Who do you think they’ll believe us or you
Yeah

Hope you realize this isn’t a game
You know the price so pay up
Or your life could be chaos
Yeah yeah yeah

You’re gonna get what you deserve
Gonna get what you deserve
In the end you’re gonna learn
How you get what you deserve

And you get what
Get what you deserve
And you get what
Get what you deserve
