about

“Breaking Habits” (with two monster ghost-dub remixes by DJ Soy Sos and haunting vocal harmony backing by Freedom Bremner) also asks questions about human foibles, but finds them elusive as well, floating on standout performances by Morninghawk, deep and dubwise Soule, evocative Ramirez and guest keyboardist Joe McGinty – bringing his best fat analog synths, Studio One-style upright piano and ethereal Augustus Pablo-style melodica.

lyrics

Breaking Habits
(music: Sullivan/Vitale/Soule/Morninghawk/Pearl - lyrics: Chuck Sullivan - © 1983)

Problems have not disappeared.
They are only sleeping
But when the problem is waking up
Everybody’s leaving

Breaking Habits - 
Hard To Stop

Automatic
 - Back to the start, start, start

Turn around, look within, catch a glimpse
Of where we’ve been

What we do and what we say
Break off into separate ways
Forking tongue and hiding hand
Are we trying the best that we can?

Breaking Habits
 - Hard To Stop
Automatic - 
Back to the start, start, start

Turn around, look within, catch a glimpse
Of where we’ve been

If you mind your own affairs

Cause nobody harm

But you when you look - you look the other way
The trouble hits you double hard
