about

"STREAKING IN TONGUES' inaugural offering is definitely a full body workout: one part absurdist, two parts shock therapy, and three parts theological stew. Oh, and yes, musical landscapes and lyrical jaunts that are strikingly new and fairly outrageous...not something one should take sitting down."
-Paul Patton, author of Prophetically Incorrect

"Ferguson's songs are the perfect mix of sweet and sour; tales of disappointment and addiction as agents of wonder and joy. Deadpan one-liners sung just out of tune bring to mind early Wayne Coyne and Isaac Brock without sounding like he's trying for either."
-Ghettoblaster Magazine

Track Name: Escape Bug #4
Escape Bug #4 (Ferguson)
Track Name: The Pain is Real
The Pain is Real (Hampton)

into this frosty cradle we’re born and slowly but surely our dreams are torn the tears are shed as we lose our hold it isn’t long before our hearts grow cold happiness is fleeting love is illusion but the pain is real some take morphine or a bottle of Jack whatever it takes to deal call me jaded call me cynical i won’t deny the claim but when you’re shit on again and again ya know it all starts to look the same time will only tell how long we must put up with this charade if we are so lucky the lights they soon may fade and if i slip away i’m not afraid of what’s to be whether to Heaven or a hole in the ground either way we are free
Track Name: There's a Reason You're Alone
There’s a Reason You’re Alone (Hampton)

i saw her in the club one night i liked the way her pants were just a little too tight she was kinda chunky but she had a nice face so i decided to show her a little grace but when she saw me coming she shot me an evil glare as if to say “where did you get the nerve to think you’d get somewhere?” so i looked her right in the face and this is what i said you ain’t no beauty queen you ain’t no model you’re just a two-bit tramp with a cigarette and a bottle beggars can’t be choosers and pearls won’t be thrown before swine so stop acting like a prima donna cuz girl you ain’t that fine millions of people out on the town going nowhere fast millions of people coming onto the scene each one dumber than the last millions of people out on the streets their lives a blur of emptiness millions of stupid twats in the world and you’re no different than the rest you think you’re really special don’t you? on the dating websites with your 20-point list you think you’re really special don’t you? you’ve got a chip on your shoulder the size of my fist you think you’re really special don’t you? standing there texting on your phone you think you’re really special don’t you? but there’s a reason you’re alone
Track Name: God's Greatest Joke
God’s Greatest Joke (Hampton)
