about

The Sea Slugs Southampton, UK

The Sea Slugs’ unique music is borne out of a collective condemnation of intolerance, a strong sense of solidarity with fellow humans, and a passion for the music of Fela Kuti. The result is a visceral, often turbulent sound with a subversive edge, subjecting the listener to songs beyond a common pop structure. Every incorporated element is expressed through quantum musicality. ... more

Track Name: Do or Die
I have an overriding sense it's do or die
For each and every one of us who wants to try
To try and overthrow them and then deny
The rich and selfish cunts of their paradise

Fear lives in the heart of man, and love lives in the heart of a women
Former priests and presidents have long lost the peace they represent
Oh look cos here they come, to disembowel you
Oh you think they're on the run, cos they're snidey too

You're tories and you're scumbags
and you'll realise when the time is too late
Track Name: Adorning Her
Nothing's seen, nothing's known, nothing's wrong, nothing's owned
Her body her home

Sensitive to change, forced to be misled
Female mutilation on her mother's bed
Shut the door closed now there's nothing to be said
Female mutilation on her father's bed

Nothing's seen, nothing's known, nothing's wrong, nothing's owned
Her body her home

Four to five years old, models swimming clothes
Now just twelve years old, she models with no clothes
Just for money's sake, we think she's free at last
We'll cry for her life now, now that it's in the past
Track Name: Home
Yeah hope is in the water
Yeah peace is in the water
Track Name: Not Lost
Everything's not lost
A beauty that's in disguise
Everything's not lost
I see it now through your eyes
That beauty gives death a ride

Egypt you have my soul
Egypt you have my soul
My Grandma's not letting go
She connects me to where I'm from

I'm not black not white not wrong
I'm not black not white not wrong
Egypt you have my soul
It's something I'll forever know
Forever can be for show

England you'll have my bones
I'll sail them back for sure
Maybe I will die abroad
Cos this soil's not made of gold
It's something that we don't know
Track Name: Same Old, Same Old
Caring about their powers too fickly
throwing their money overseas
Morally divorcees from you and me
Not meaning to bring peace to you

Scrounging for debt and tearing this land apart
Now they're scrounging for land and forcing us to start

Fighting over you and me
Fighting over land and sea
Fighting over things we need

Like housing on a massive scale
Feminists freed from their jails
People feeding families for themselves

They're killing us like time won't last
Killing us for their own past
Killing us cos change is coming fast

We're vulnerable to inflation, austerity, evasion and private greed
Still vulnerable to policy, white man's needs and jealousy
Track Name: Go High
Take no moment, take no pleasure
Take no reason, take no feeling
Take no closeness, take no fresh air
No more breathing, no more finer thing

Go home, go high, go sleep,go die
(Go high, come crashing down)

Forlorn, for sure, your heart, procured

Take no courage, take no choices
No more silence, all these voices
take no thoughtless, build no fortresses
Take no loved ones, no solace in your lifetime

Go home, go high, go sleep,go die
(Go high, come crashing down)

Forlorn, for sure, your heart, procured
Track Name: When's Enough!?
(Tory tory murder)

May I excuse myself from this island, land and cell
May I excuse myself, from this island's prison cell

(When's enough enough oh?)

May I be your equal, a refugee on foreign soil
May we be your equal, a mother holding her dying girl

(When's enough enough oh?)

The man on the park bench, street bench, making sense
(There's no roof, just the rough)
Women taking care of our future from what we've spent
(It's behave or the game)
Those less fortunate than ourselves
(Go to work or the grave)
Iain Duncan Smith puts his shame upon his shelf
(Go to work or the grave)

They're all,
Tory tory murders
Track Name: They Found Asylum in the Sea
We don't want here no immigrant
We don't want see no immigrant
We don't care for humanity
Cos we don't feel love at all

In this country they say
That we must turn them away
So we leave they to die
And don't stop to think why

He go run (He go run)
He go hide (He go hide)
He go cry (We don't hear)
He go die (We don't care)

First we throw them a line
But then we change our minds
Then we hold out our hand
But don't help them to stand

Instead we choose not to care
Laid our twisted morals bare
When we said leave them be
To float face down in the sea

He go run (He go run)
He go hide (He go hide)
He go cry (We don't hear)
He go die (We don't care)

She go run (She go run)
She go hide (She go hide)
She go cry (We don't hear)
She go die (We don't care)

Search and rescue turned to fear and murder
While they teach us how to fear our brothers
