about

The Lemonchili Project Brisbane, Australia

The Lemonchili Project's music defies definition by any conventional standard. It’s not made to fit.
It’s easy to get lost in meaningful, sometimes confrontational rock with a strong beat that makes you tick. It combines old sounds with new technology, and jumps around all over the place, just like we do.
It’s made to be played- LOUD.

Track Name: Sunny Sunday
Sunny Sunday

I told you I was leaving
But I didn’t cry
You were angry, sad and sick
And you wanted to know why
Was colder than I thought I could be
So I said goodbye
And a part of you wished
Wished that I would die
‘Cause it’s a sunny Sunday afternoon
Pulled my foot out of my mouth so I could step on your heart
A sunny Sunday afternoon
A beautiful summer’s day except I tore us apart

I’ve lost count of
The things I left unresolved
But one day I had a vision
And I saw us growing old
You weren’t happy and I wasn’t happy
And, oh, things were looking black
Maybe it’s the wrong thing
But I’m not turning back
‘Cause it’s a sunny Sunday afternoon
I broke your heart and I left it bleeding
A sunny Sunday afternoon
A beautiful summer’s day except I told you I was leaving
Track Name: Ad Campaign
Ad Campaign

Too gullible in these times, apathy making us blind
When did we decide we’d take the bait, we’d take the line
Why do we believe the numbers they let us see
User pays, another new fee, can’t you see nothing’s free
Don’t give me complicated
Just give me plug and play
Don’t you make me think
I don’t want to miss all that I’m throwing away

Make it easy, make it easy to swallow
So we don’t notice the taste
Make it easy, make it easy to remember
The hook, not what you say
Make it easy, make it easy to swallow
So we don’t notice the taste
Make it easy, make it easy to remember
The hook, not what you say

Ad campaigns must be right, those in power would never lie
When did we let it slide, when did we forget how to fight
Paying my taxes, I’m paying my fines, I’m paying for living, yeah, I’m paying for dying
Never question, never ask why, those in power they would never lie
Don’t give me complicated
Just give me plug and play
Don’t you make me think
I don’t want to miss all that I’m throwing away

Make it easy, make it easy to swallow
So we don’t notice the taste
Make it easy, make it easy to remember
The hook, not what you say
Make it easy, make it easy to swallow
So we don’t notice the taste
Make it easy, make it easy to remember
The hook, not what you say
Track Name: Slip Away
Slip Away

Trying to find a moment
Trying to find a little time
Trying to get some thoughts on paper
Maybe some that rhyme
Trying to ease the pain in my head
Forget the nine to five
Trying to get on that track
That proves I’m alive

So easy to fall into the day to day
So easy to let it all slip away
Caught up in traffic jams and trying to pay the rent
The dream’s still alive but you wonder where the days went

Trying to find a balance
Between the wants and must
Trying to not feel guilty but
Not let the ideas rust
Trying to do too much but
Never reaching the gate
Trying to believe that
It isn’t too late

So easy to fall into the day to day
So easy to let it all slip away
Caught up in fixing cars and watching dollars and cents
Is the dream alive? You wonder where the months went

Trying to find a moment
And a little piece and quiet
Trying to have a little faith
This ain’t a waste of time
Trying not to think
Why it took so long to reach the start
Trying to keep telling yourself
No one cools this flaming heart

So easy to fall into the day to day
So easy to let it all slip away
Caught up in traffic jams and forgetting to pay the rent
The dream’s still alive but you wonder where the years went
Track Name: No Compromise
No Compromise

The game has changed, did you miss play?
Rules re-written, no more give and take
No easy shot or removing complications
No leaving it out or setting limitations
I won’t back down this time
I won’t simplify
So you better realise
There is no compromise

All or nothing
I have to push this
All or nothing
To see how high
All or nothing
Can you take it?
All or nothing
All the time

No half assed excuses, no mediocrity
No more “she’ll be right mate”, no slacker apathy
You know where the door is if you’re looking for second place
No more average, no more fucking beige
I won’t back down this time
I won’t simplify
So you better realise
There is no compromise

All or nothing
I have to push this
All or nothing
To see how high
All or nothing
Can you take it?
All or nothing
All the time

All or nothing
I have to push this
All or nothing
To see how high
All or nothing
Can you take it?
All or nothing
All the time

Track Name: Small World
Small World

You try to keep it contained
You don’t adapt you just complain
Goal posts’ shifting it’s a new day
And you’re so afraid of change
There’s opportunities but you forgot how to dream
Thought you knew how it would always be
Where you come from is fading can’t you see
Look outside your glass box where you’ve always been

It’s a small world
So many small minds
It’s a small world
Getting smaller all the time

What about you trying to please everyone
One of everything like a scattergun
Playing it safe so out of touch
Same thing every day and I’ve had enough
Find me something new that I’ve never heard before
Sorry I forgot you don’t do that any more
High rotation no dissension and too much talk
So I tune out ‘cause I’m so fucking bored

It’s a small world
So many small minds
It’s a small world
Getting smaller all the time
It’s a small world
Connecting minds and lives
It’s a small world
Don’t you get left behind

You thought you knew how it would always be
Borders gone can you change how you think
Your subjects they’ve got more choices you’re no longer king
Look outside your glass box that’s where I’ll be

It’s a small world
So many small minds
And it’s a small world
Getting smaller all the time
It’s a small world
Connecting minds and lives
And it’s a small world
Don’t you get left behind
It’s a small world
So many small minds
And it’s a small world
Getting smaller all the time
It’s a small world
Connecting minds and lives
It’s a small world
I’m leaving you behind
Track Name: Balance
Balance

Well let me take a wild guess
Got a brand new plan for success
This one might take a little time
Old plans get left behind
Now you’ve got a new direction
Taking over like an infection
This one you know it’s right
‘Til once again you change your mind
You’re always running around
Juggling dreams and chasing clouds
Never get beyond the breach
Wonder why they’re out of reach
Too many ideas in your head
When was the last time that you slept
You’ve got to find some release
Maybe it’s time to step back and see…

Got to find a balance
Got to weigh it all up
Got to find a balance
‘Tween not enough and too much
Got to find a balance
Between the day and the night
You’ve got to find a balance
Between get it done and get it right

Spreading yourself to thin
Load up don’t know where to begin
Days and weeks and months go by
Always running fast forward rewind
Thinking too much way too much
Write the finish before the start
Trying to make it black or white
All or nothing just one more night
And when you finally do
When you’re about to break on through
You try to push it too far
And you let it all fall apart
It’s time to forget about the end
Time to think just a little less
Time to stop being so smart
Find a balance between your head and your heart

You’ve got to find a balance
Got to weigh it all up
You’ve got to find a balance
‘Tween not enough and too much
Got to find a balance
And a few more hours sleep
Got to find a balance
Between what you want and what you need

Got to find a balance
Got to weigh it all up
Got to find a balance
‘Tween not enough and too much
Got to find a balance
Between the day and the night
You’ve got to find a balance
Between get it done and get it right

Got to find a balance
Got to weigh it all up
Got to find a balance
‘Tween not enough and too much
Got to find a balance
Between the old and the new
You’ve got to find a balance
Between what you dream and what you do
