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.

Don't look back, it's out of sight.
Make it out, step in the light.
Climb the ladder.  Feel the fall.
Break the vapor. Hear the call.
Don't look backward. Forward in.
Feel the seething. Heal the sin.
Stand up taller. Duck and weave.
Breath the air through your teeth,
with your soul intact and your head still in one piece.

Look up now. You're on the train.
Thoughts are brewing, they heat the pain.
Ever after.  Turn to Stone.
Break the fracture. All alone.
Don't look now. You're on the track.
Dust blows forward, you blow back.
Step by step, all the while
You walk the line the extra mile.
with the shit barely stickin' to the broad side of your smile.

Don't hold back. Don't look for truth.
In your mind, no Absolute.
Burning feeling, fight to fix.
Where to put it, your same old tricks. 
Don't hold in your floating fear.
Scream when you see me. Show me I'm here.
In your body. Out in space.
Out of your mind, but still in place.
Not a blow to your pride or a cheap shot to your grace.

Turn it over, then confess.
Move the blocking consciousness.
It isn't needed.  It isn't free.
It makes the bed, but needs to sleep.
Turn it down. Belong to you.
In your heart, nothing to do.
Own your impulse in sweet release
with your shiny tail a 'draggin' and your tongue all 'a waggin' and a grin between your teeth.
