about

Toy Destruction Dunedin, New Zealand

Infused from the bubblegum beneath your feet, Toy Destruction came alive. From these twisted beginnings we are out to seek revenge! But after learning the effort it would take, our revenge was futile... So we just sit in our rooms building space ships out of Lego blocks and searching for that illusive note between B and C. ... more

Track Name: No Standards of Glue
How could something so strong
End up buckling at the knees
We’re a dodgy brand of glue
That has lost all cohesion

Were our actions justified
Falsely labelled empty land
We’re a dodgy brand of glue
That has lost all cohesion

We better clean our room
The rubbish bin is full
We are the garbage men
There are no standards of glue

How could something so strong
End up buckling at the knees
We’re a dodgy brand of glue
That has lost all cohesion

The glue was never made to standards
No effort was put in
We’re a dodgy brand of glue
That has lost all cohesion

We better clean our room
The rubbish bin is full
We are the garbage men
There are no standards of glue
Track Name: Checkers
I shouldn’t have waited for you
Well I’ve wasted my time now
There’s no turning back the clock
Time to move forward from this

You’re made of checkers
You’re a two faced bitch
What has become of me
What has become of me
Don’t wanna touch you anymore
Don’t wanna touch

I must say, it was good while it lasted
Got no regrets for the past
Just when I thought you meant the most
It was all a sham in the end
Don’t wanna touch you any more
These hands are for some else now
Who’ll stick around
And not fuck off

You’re made of checkers
You’re a two faced bitch
What has become of me
What has become of me
Don’t wanna touch you anymore
Don’t wanna touch… YOU!
Track Name: Dusty Sunglasses
It’s amazing what changes with the sun
We become more dreary as it goes on
Scuttling from place to place
As we fumble with our breaking umbrellas

Where has the sun gone
Did we piss it off
Everything is so wet

It’s amazing what changes with the sun
We become more dreary as it goes on
The sound of rain is soothing momentarily
While my sunglasses are so fucking dusty

Where has the sun gone
Did we piss it off
Everything is so wet

It’s amazing what changes with the sun
We become more dreary as it goes on
Forgetting what the sun even looks like
And my sunglasses are so fucking dusty

Where has the sun gone
Did we piss it off
Everything is so wet
Track Name: Numbing Minds
I do not care today
I will not care tomorrow
Sorry to leave you here
Drowning in your sorrows

Not knowing what I really miss
Nothing has been solved; it’s time to numb my mind
And escape from it all

Deteriorating mind
And deteriorated sorrows
Sorry I'm not there for you
My mind has turned hollow

I might actually care
But I might actually not
It’s all a little crazy there
I've passed my clock

Not knowing what I really miss
Nothing has been solved; it’s time to numb my mind
And escape from it all
