Eddie the Rat

Eddie the Rat is the pseudonym for composer/ multi-instrumentalist, P.R.Martin and the musical group who execute his carefully constructed compositions. Martin's music has been called "sexy avant-garde" and "head music for your feet." Inspired by everything from Indonesian gamelan, American music styles (Jazz, Blues, rock), and modern orchestral music, Eddie the Rat bridges the way between ritual, roots, and concert music. It's All Part of the Ongoing Construct.

Hit the rails for a  ride - not in vain.
Turn around in your tracks for the train.
now you look on the wall for a spell.
What a burning bush shows it never tells.

Hover over the wheels as they spin.
only suss out your own confusion.
do not offer the beads of your sweat.
try to make it a game or a bet.

mark your trail once around the butterfly bush

Hold your breath until you make it back.
once around and then you're off the track.
Never hearing the roar of the gears,
Watch the train as if it disappears.

Tell your time by the sun any day.
save your sins for a spell that you say.
Out from under the rug for a while,
it might as well be a month or a mile.
mark your trail once around the butterfly bush

Make a home for the mice that have strayed,
never hearing the pipes that were played.
There's a witch in the well over there.
doesn't savor her spells for the air
or even care.

Purge your konk of the hate that you save.
Light your way on the road that you pave.
Tell the time by your heart with your head.
When it beats to the hum, you can play dead.

Flash your light on the way 'round the bend.
Make a home for the hate that you mend.
Tell the ghost in the closet you are near.
Open doors for the things  you most fear.

Try and be here.
