about

Limited Dose is a Limited Edition EP Version of Crooked Karma's Debut album - released as an Open The Door Radio Spotlight Feature.

"Always a treat to receive some new music in the post albeit via Cairo, but what the hey, these two musicians come from different corners of the globe anyway. Liam Oragh (Ireland) and Warren Newton (Australia) have put together a collection of songs that have kept my ears buzzing in a good way for the past month or so. This is what I discovered…"

Track Name: Jetlag
There's a lot to be said for travelling by boat
Track Name: Inevitable
And there was me thinking that if it wasn't for the disintegration of relationships musicians would have nothing to write about - Liam Oragh

"I've been wondering if my girlfriend's silent whispers
could be turned into a no-holds-barred full-blooded scream
I've been wondering if her taunting could be turned upon its head
to let the mocking come from me
Holed up in my head
Stuck on possibilities
Relinquishing control
Refusing to bow to the inevitable...
I've been wondering when these tinges of unhappiness
started bearing rotten fruit
I've been wondering when these needles of resentment
started piercing through my skin

And if I could turn back the clock
would my antennas be tuning in
And if I could turn back the clock
Would my brain be zoning out
And if I could turn back the clock
Would I hear your favourite phrase
" You'll never change"
Track Name: Redhead
I fell in love with a genuine redhead - not one of those dyed up jobs!

Redhead
"I fell in love with a genuine redhead
not one of those dyed-up jobs
She made me feel so indestructible
warm funny and fiery (yeah yeah)

I fell in love with a genuine redhead
she always laughed at my jokes
even when it was blatently obvious
not as funny as I thought I was...

She had a fine wine sense of humour
She'd want to have to put up with me
She couldn't handle my truculent nature
never change to what you want me to be..

And if i treated you shabbily
my head plays a different tune to my heart
And if I treated you like I didnt care
I was too wrapped up in my own nonsense

I fell in love with a beautiful redhead
not as romantic as it sounds
We bumped our heads in a supermarket aisle
tripped over each other and fell to the ground

She had the cutest of freckles
always multiplied in the sun
but if you disturbed her before her make-up was on
not even God could pluck you out of that frying pan

I fell in love with a Genuine Redhead - yeah yeah yeah yeah..."
Track Name: Reductive
Words that make you laugh - words that cause you pain
Words that force you to feel - thunder peal cascades of rain

Reductive
"I've gotta find out how to use a word like reductive
I've gotta find out how to use a word like chicane
then slip them into my conversation
like i'm simply passing the time of day
I've gotta find out how to use a word like germane

I've gotta forget how to use a word thats destructive
i've gotta find out how to use a word that will heal
then slip them into my conversation
like i'm simply passing the time of day
I've gotta find out how to use a word like surreal

words that make you laugh
words that cause you pain
words that force you to feel
thunder peal cascades of rain

i've gotta fnd out how to make myself more seductive
i've gotta fina out how to make myself more charming"
Track Name: Turtles
Never rely on what you see - Not everything can be seen

Lyrics by Julia Johns

Turtles
"Maybe the world was made for us
So that we could find eachother in it
The world is nothing but for the fact
Love found it in our image

Never rely on what you see
Not everything can be seen

If the world vanishes without trace
what is left is ours to face
our little life is fraught with choice
I hope we don't take a wrong turn

Never rely on what you see
not everything can be seen

I will always believe that love
is the highest value
but i don't believe that love
is the answer, nor the solution

Love is a force of nature like the sun
as necessary, as impersonal, and as gigantic
warming, and drought-giving as it is life-giving
when it burns out, the planet dies...

Never rely...

We meet, we don't meet, we have lunch
so good to see you again
did we unconsciously choose the wrong road
it always leads to nowhere

Turtles hatch in the sand
not many of them make it to the sea
once there, the sharks are waiting
days disappear and get swallowed up
But the ones that make it swim out
and return for the rest of your life

Don't wait, don't tell the story later
life is so short, this stretch of sea and sand
this walk along the shore
don't wait, don't tell the story later
before the tide covers everything

A Story with a happy ending?
There's no such thing my dear
just an ending.......the beginning of what happens next"
Track Name: I Won't Close The Door
Memories keep on moving - flowing on through - like a paper boat on a stream

lyrics
" I won't close the door - you're still in my heart
it's just weary to the bone
like a leaf that don't know where to fall
will someday come to rest like us all
i hope that you're there..

Sun keeps rising - Day after day
and it will for a while to come
memories keep on moving
flowing on through
like a paper boat on a stream

Dawn is breaking - there'll be blue skies again
But not for a while to come
i'll seperate the memories
with sweetness of time
no bitterness will poison me"
