The newest EP by grizzled Long Island punks Iron Chic displays a sort of growth one might not expect from a quintet of time-fearing, sparsely-to-heavily bearded gentlemen. The band's first batch of material since a couple of Europe-only EPs in 2011, 'Spooky Action' features two exponentially excellent originals and Butthole Surfers and Ramones covers.

Track Name: Spooky Action at a Distance
You make time stand still
You make time stand still
And I can deal with that
'Cause I got time to kill

I'll breathe when I have to
And I'll leave when you say so
I'll burn in the meantime
But only on the inside

We have an oath to keep
And we rise while the rest sleep
There's no going back
At least not for me

I'm dying for answers
Things that I used to know
But that was years ago

I'm biting my tongue now
Some things can't be said aloud
From my lips to your ears
You'd only see through me
See into the true me
Yeah!

You know that time's a wheel
And if we stand right here
You can see for miles
You could even see for years

I'll bleed if I have to
But I'm never letting go
Oh no!

I'm biting my tongue now
Some things can't be said aloud
From my lips to your ears
You'd only hear screaming
While I whisper the meaning
To you
Track Name: Less Rest for the Restless
Haven't slept in what feels like forever
slow down
it's now or never
gotta chance to make it work
wide eyed with dreams about dreaming
in my mind this darkened ceiling might as well be outer space
I've been awake too long
don't know where things went wrong
I gotta sleep this off

don't let me sleep too long (I might never wake up)
I've been afraid too long
wide awake all along my time has finally come
don't let me sleep too long
I might never wake up

fists clenched and silently seething
calm down by the light TV
like an old familiar face
my hands quit shaking
I'll continue quietly aching
waiting for the night to fade
I've been awake too long
don't know where
things went wrong
I gotta sleep this off

don't let me sleep too long (I might never wake up)
I've been afraid too long
wide awake all along my time has finally come
don't let me sleep too long
I might never wake up
Track Name: Bonzo Goes to Bitburg
You've got to pick up the pieces
C'mon, sort your trash
You better pull yourself back together
Maybe you've got too much cash

Better call, call the law
When you gonna turn yourself in? Yeah
You're a politician
Don't become one of Hitler's children

Bonzo goes to Bitburg then goes out for a cup of tea
As I watched it on TV somehow it really bothered me
Drank in all the bars in town for an extended foreign policy
Pick up the pieces

My brain is hanging upside down
I need something to slow me down
Ooh yeah, my brain is hanging upside down
And I need something to slow me down

Shouldn't wish you happiness
Wish her the very best
Fifty thousand dollar dress
Shaking hands with your highness

See through you like cellophane
You watch the world complain
But you do it anyway
Who am I, am I to say

Bonzo goes to Bitburg then goes out for a cup of tea
As I watched it on TV somehow it really bothered me
Drank in all the bars in town for an extended foreign policy
Pick up the pieces

My brain is hanging upside down
I need something to slow me down
Ooh yeah, my brain is hanging upside down
And I need something to slow me down

If there's one thing that makes me sick
It's when someone tries to hide behind politics
I wish that time could go by fast
Somehow they manage to make it last

Ooh yeah, yeah, my brain is hanging upside down
I need something to slow me down
Ooh yeah, yeah, my brain is hanging upside down
And I need something to slow me down

Ooh yeah, yeah, my brain is hanging upside down
And I need something to slow me down
My brain is hanging upside down
