about

The debut physical release from Miami electronic wunderkind PANIC BOMBER. Classically trained and holding a degree in Music Engineering Technology, Panic Bomber (aka Richard Haig) decided he’d had enough of playing in underappreciated local bands and started composing music for the dancefloor. The result is Panic Bomber, the multi-media, interactive performer and producer extraordinaire who has taken the Miami dance scene by storm over the last year. “Getting On My Mind” features 8 original tracks and 4 bonus remixes of the title track by the likes of Phoenecia’s Takeshi Muto and Total Fucking Pizza Party.

Track Name: Bang on the Walls
On the road again and good to go
Shuttle back to the hotel, don't be slow
I'm gonna show you what it means to be
A rock star

Undress the bottle and impress my friends
Produce a night that's never gonna end
If I unleash this we can't pull it back
Bomb the tracks

Sneak past the manager and up the stairs
Bring the guitars and bass and kicks and snares
We're gonna hit them on the twos and fours
We got the next room on the below floor

We're gonna make an album in one night
And start a hotel fight
Unpack the drums, drink, and beat the beat out

We're going to bang on all the walls until management kicks us out
We're going to kick out all the jams until the sun has risen up
I don't know what they all were thinking
Renting us this hotel room for not sleeping

Come on let's fuck on all the surfaces and never clean them up
Waking up the neighbors 'cause we just don't give a fuck
We're going to bang on all the walls because the floor ain't loud enough
Bring the drum kit in and let's just beat it rough

With the TV smashed and light bulbs blown
To get us out the door they'll knock it down
We burnt the drapes and wear them as a crown
Stomp the ground

Let's have another and go hit record
It's almost biblical, the wine we've poured
With music this good we are never bored
Power chords!

Track Name: Turn to Glass
Anesthetized
Warm muscles left to dry
We keep the lights on but I don't know why
Cast aside
It may be worth a try
If we can do it then we'll never die

I've been taking a risk or two and they haven't turned to glass
But maybe my trump has come to pass
You are too young to move this fast
Our hands are tied and our fates collide and our heads turn into glass
It will shatter, inevitably crash
A seventeen-year-old girl will never last

When in dark
I trace your question marks
Connect your dots, make you my art
Flint to spark
Give you a running start
Coming after with a tag and a bag and a dart

I never resist my mind but my heart still turns to glass
I wish you would take a risk on me
This may be the only time I'm free
Track Name: A Giant Tortoise
My common sense is falling down by my side
I'm seeing a giant tortoise flying up to the sky
Now my mind is trying to catch up with the tricks up my sleeve
Heavens, can you convince my body of the truths I perceive?

Soo soo soo soo sweet
I've got my flight suit on and my boot-strapped feet
All my friends at home will feign trust in what I've seen
They won't really get this colorful love machine
Five, four, three, two, one, ignition
Rocket go for this big launch pad decision
Massive apparitions of reptilian design
Telling me the mysteries of man kind

Rainbows of energy are shooting
Past my iris into my genome's binding
Rapidly evolving past flesh and bone and need
The giant tortoise eats my head and I become the feed
Track Name: Split Personality
Under the covers
Of unsuspecting musical numbers
Covering up all my machines
Saboteur of boring dreams

Cooking the numbers
Tearing down the suits and their sponsors
Terror cells follow my lead
Making our culture free

I've got a split personality

None of my lovers
Have come across the side to discover
My political secret police
Flying me across the seas
Breakfast in Russia
Afternoon tea-party in Cuba
A panic bombing musical spree
Racking up the casualties
Track Name: Spooky Action at a Distance
This voice is calling me
And it's forcing my hand to move in some ways
I never taught it to
It's your spooky action at a distance, held with grace

I never suspected you
Would hold this much sway over my day to day
It's an embarassment
It's your spooky action at a distance, pulling away

Entangled as a pair
Regardless of the air
Between our counterparts
We are each other's art

And I know it won't suffice
To say I know it won't sit right
But to have you torn from life
Don't stop your actions at night
And I know these girls are fools
And their eyes pierce through my goal
But your spooky action's pull is the tether to my poll
And I know it won't sit right
And I know it won't hold tight
And I know it won't keep quiet
And I know it won't cause riots

The silence is killing me
So I make some noise to fill my head's big void
My chest is my reverb plate
The ideas from my knees travel up through my pelvic bone

I thrust to expell my need
But the benefits sober up with the booze
I wish I could stand with you
But your spooky action at a distance

I haven't been scared enough
By your ghostly hand reaching out through the walls
Catching my trips and falls
It's my safety net dragging me back to my own shore

Since I was sixteen years
There's not been one day I have not thought of you
I forget all other names
It's your spooky action at a distance
Track Name: The Kind of Woman
You're the kind of woman I fall in love with
But I will feel it on my own

I've dreamt of you for the last twenty years
I don't know what your face looks like or where you are
My crystal skull shoots rainbows out to sea
Your talent is perverse, subtle to conceive
Track Name: Keep Ignoring
I keep ignoring your birthdays
And your presents pile up under the bed
I'm going to give them to you when
When I've got the courage to be a man in love

You keep ignoring the reaper
As you burn the candle at both ends at a time
He's going to give it to you when
When you've exhausted your ninth life chasing sublime

Oh with the sun on our sleeves
We keep ignoring
The blight that our futures could be
We need some miracles

Oh as we play in the sand
We keep it coming
Embracing the present at hand
Let's take advantage of

All of our plights on the seas
Never capsized our dreams that our days should be free
We need reality

So with our faces in sun
Let's have a toast to the ignorant bliss still to come
Track Name: Getting on My Mind (Josh Kay Sexy Body by Takeshi Muto)
I don't want you getting on my mind, I get so flustered that I can't see right
I'm working on you, getting over time, can't get nothing done when I'm so maligned

There is something about you, wrecks my thoughts, all my other time commitments settle for loss
You're like a big spool of mental floss, scraping the tartar off my brain with a wash
I cannot see through your shields and blocks, entering you could be like Pandora's box
All of my book learning drops off, getting busy takes over any practical cause

True, sometimes I know what to do, but then I'm caught up in a feud, split between what I can want and what you do

When I come on home for sure
My baby, I will always keep it pure
Gotta keep you out of my mind when I'm on tour
When my melt is at its top, I'm gonna keep it going, never stop
Focus my laser on shooting past the clock

I get so flustered
Track Name: Getting on My Mind (Wake's Woke Up Drunk Mix)
I don't want you getting on my mind, I get so flustered that I can't see right
I'm working on you, getting over time, can't get nothing done when I'm so maligned

There is something about you, wrecks my thoughts, all my other time commitments settle for loss
You're like a big spool of mental floss, scraping the tartar off my brain with a wash
I cannot see through your shields and blocks, entering you could be like Pandora's box
All of my book learning drops off, getting busy takes over any practical cause

True, sometimes I know what to do, but then I'm caught up in a feud, split between what I can want and what you do

When I come on home for sure
My baby, I will always keep it pure
Gotta keep you out of my mind when I'm on tour
When my melt is at its top, I'm gonna keep it going, never stop
Focus my laser on shooting past the clock

I get so flustered
Track Name: Getting on My Mind (Downhearted Mix by Dub Jay)
I don't want you getting on my mind, I get so flustered that I can't see right
I'm working on you, getting over time, can't get nothing done when I'm so maligned

There is something about you, wrecks my thoughts, all my other time commitments settle for loss
You're like a big spool of mental floss, scraping the tartar off my brain with a wash

Focus my laser on shooting past the clock

I get so flustered
