Red Pistachio (Great Aunt Coleslaw) quite the unnatural dream it seems, you have the loveliest eyes i’ve never seen something so obscene, i had a wet dream so it seems if my dolls will come alive tonight with sounds from the ground cracking open out of sight out of mind tell me how i’m going to die red pistachio red pistachio when day turns to night all of the air and sunlight the piece underneath my dancing feet beneath all the sunlight when you look into my eyes Do you see satan or God dressed up in disguise making up more lies out of sight tell me how i’m going to die red pistachio red pistachio i’m waking up from a dream, I think i’m going to die i can’t catch my breath i’m fresh out of luck i think i’m going to die in a fearful state the one where my fate has helped me murder my tears i am the man of the year out of mind tell me how i’m going to die red pistachio red pistachio i am every mother and every child it makes me smile for a while as I walk for miles i am so tempted by gold it is the reason i sold the devil some of my soul I am the story that’s told out of sight out of mind tell me how i’m going to die red pistachio red pistachio

Synthetic Human (Great Aunt Coleslaw) he chased a rainbow and saw a long black limousine he wanted power sold his soul within the hour of meeting me i taught him magic and made a blonde woman disappear he wanted power sold his soul within the hour of meeting me i stood up and pushed off to look back to find out why oh why oh why nothing matters we’re not important begin the ending your perfect ending become the monster control the rainbow believe in magic synthetic human synthetic human creates memories synthetic human is the son synthetic human chooses destiny synthetic human is a lie why oh why oh why begin the lesson your only lesson all art is ego Ignore the shadow become the rainbow control the monster believe in magic synthetic human Know Thyself Know Thyself

about

Shortly after the release of his 2017 debut album, There’s a System of Control, Elk Minister was contacted by the spirit of his dead Great Aunt Coleslaw. With the help of his companion and imagery friend Gerald, Elk Minister was able to piece together many mysteries from the life of his Great Aunt Coleslaw. Coleslaw was a brilliant musician in her own right who lived to be well over 700 years old, but until now very little has been written and reported on her many lifetimes. She now resides in a different plane of existence in the year 3144 A.D. With her help and guidance, Elk Minister has promised two deliver 26 albums, and declared 2018 The Year of The Elk. The first album of 2018 is known as Capricorn.


The Book of Slaw: Songs From My Great Aunt Coleslaw is a year long project dedicated to the life of Elk Minister’s Great Aunt Coleslaw. Coleslaw’s lyrics and music were once described blurring the lines of reality and fantasy. While it is her who created all of the music, lyrics, artwork, and spoken word poems on the 26 scheduled studio albums of 2018, it is Elk Minister who is the performer on all of the albums.


Elk Minister is proud to share the life and work of his Great Aunt Coleslaw. It was her who inspired him to play music and he feels it as an honor and blessing that he is finally able to share her art with the world. Whenever Elk Minister was feeling sad as a little boy, the music of his Great Aunt Coleslaw always cheered him up.


Now we will all rejoice with Great Aunt Coleslaw.
