Colour Machine's first offering of 2016 - a loud and abrasive fist to the face. LITTLE PEOPLE is a tirade against indifferent crowds and people with an opinion without an experience.

Basically? Without your support, local bands won't get anywhere.

Thank you so much for your support!


Lights are dim, mouths are open
A Friday night at 9:15 and no ones even watching
Open their mouths and look the other way
And off they go to the bar
Maybe I'll go to sleep and drift away from this stage
Want prizes but get pain pills and nothing else good
My eyelids shut and the lady from my dreams, yes she says
Show me what you got now

She said put your high heels on, put your high heels on
I'll show you where we're going
I'll show you where we're going
Put your high heels on
Put your high heels on
We can take the road less travelled on
Put your high heels on
Anything to look different than you do
Right now, right now, right now

Oh, do I have your attention now?
Your eyeballs roll back and your legs move the other way
We're not good enough, it's not like we wrote this song
Pack it up and leave it all behind us but...
The voice on the phone coaxes me out of my low, he says
"When the hell did you lose all your spark?" Maybe I should go give myself a jump start
Jump in the car for a while, but everybody screams
Show us what you got now

Nothing that I've learnt can ever tell me what to do when I'm down
My motivation lies chucking up its guts when it should be downtown
Valleys that I've found myself in never seem to plateau on their own
I guess I'm trying to say you best get moving
Just take one step
