about

"Getting Off At Redfern" by Point Blank Australia is a double album of creative originals spanning multiple genres - classic rock, catchy pop, 60's/70's influences, garage sounds, melodic punk, fusions of jazz, 'old skool' heavy metal and infectious melodies woven into one diverse package.

From the 'tongue in cheek' to the depths of the soul, from the trivial to the profound… this music could be described as instantly familiar yet completely alternative.

1. She walks like a vision so nice,
She makes everybody look twice,
She's one of a kind, magical eyes,
Waiting for me with her magazine thighs

Ch. What you get's not, what you want
What you get's not, what you want
What you get's not, what you want
What you get's not, what you want

2. She makes everybody she can,
She has an elaborate plan,
She never gives in, she never gives in
She never gives in, she never gives in

Ch. What you get's not, what you want
What you get's not, what you want
What you get's not, what you want
What you get's not, what you want

LOCK YOU UP

1. He looked at me, on his knees
I had wet hands, you know I can

2. He was on my bed, and I saw red
I'm in the can, I have a plan

Ch. I'll lock you up
I'll lock you up
I'll lock you up
I'll lock you up

I'll get you back, I have a knack

SHE'S JUST (A GIRL)

(Copyright 10/2004 Rob Bender)

1. I see the cars go by, they're driving through today,
It doesn't matter what I do or what I say,
'Cause you don't care . . .
Are you ever gonna care?


2. The tide is turning waiting on the telephone
Watching the hands tick by, I really should have known
That you're not home . . .
Are you ever coming home?

Ch. She's "just a girl" who doesn't care . . .
Doesn't care

3. I know you realise, it's just not getting through,
Cafe outdoor young girls, are waiting there for you
But you're not there . . .
And you're never gonna care


CH. Yeah she's "just a girl" who doesn't care . . .
Doesn't care.
Track Name: I Found You
I FOUND YOU

(Copyright 2009 R. Bender M. Mantovani)


1. On the phone
In your home
I’m, all alone

Look around
What I’ve found
You’re, on the ground

Ch1. When you thought that you were safe from
All the dangers that you’d bring home
I found you, in your room

Working late out every evening
Looking for a place that you could
Hide the truth but, I found you

2. When you’re home
All alone
I’m watching you

Just in time
You will find
Your life is mine

Ch2. (Ch1 rpt)

3. Close the door
Look around
There’s, no one there

Hear a sound
Wait around till
It's all clear

Ch3. When you thought that you were safe from
All the things you can't escape from
I found you, in your room

Always creeping right behind you
Making sure that no one finds you
Very soon, in your room

Ch4.
When you thought that you were safe from
All the dangers that you’d bring home
I found you, in your room

Working late out every evening
Looking for a place that you could
Hide the truth, but I found you, but

I found you

WRECK OF THE DUNBAR

(Copyright 2006 Rob Bender)


1. The lines have blurred together, but I don't see it
It could be getting better, but we won't need it
It looks like we're together, but we're not really
You're holding on by a tether, slipping out of view

CH.

Your superficial dream, is coming to an end
It's never what it seems, your superficial friends
Maybe they are right this time

2. Big thing going down, but we're not ready
Our ship is comin' 'round, and sailing steady
We're crashing into the rocks, down and sinking
They're still tied to the dock, we'll never make it . . .

Track Name: Sleeping Beauty
SLEEPING BEAUTY

Copyright 08/2006 Rob Bender

1. Sleeping Beauty, on my back seat
Sleeping Beauty, on any street
Though I was thinking to myself,
I know she belongs with someone else

2. Sunday driving, up 'n' down the hills
Like the Hireling, and Hayley Mills
Maybe some girl I have not seen,
Could be the one who waits for me

3. Sleeping Beauty, in a lover's voice
Sleeping Beauty, isn't any choice
Though she could be the girl next door
It's like I've never seen a woman before

4. Sleeping Beauty, at my front door
Sleeping Beauty, could be twentyfour
But if she was a hundred and nine
I'd still love her because she's mine

Outro

Sleeping Beauty, in the clothes she wears
Sleeping Beauty, could be anywhere
Sleeping Beauty, in the rainbow skies
Sleeping Beauty, devil in disguise
Sleeping Beauty, in an angel's eyes
Sleeping Beauty, in the way she sighs
Sleeping Beauty, devil in disguise
Track Name: That Bridge We'll Never Cross
THE BRIDGE WE'LL NEVER CROSS

(Copyright 2009 R. Bender M. Mantovani)

1. Walking over the boundary,
There's that line you said you'd never cross
Driving into your season,
Missed your turn can't go back any more
See the fires burn through it,
Don't look away, or you might miss the show

Ch1. I see it over there, open your eyes you'll see it too
The bridge that never was, there it is

2. Watch your step, there's nothing left
Don't take a closer look, just close the book
Follow me, to your destiny,
Don't turn around, look what we've found

Ch2. I see it over there, open your eyes you'll see it too
The bridge that never was, there it is
I see it over there, turn around you'll see it too
The bridge that never was, there it is
Track Name: Cybergirl
CYBERGIRL

( Copyright 03/2005, Rob Bender)


1. She's got it all, a push-up bra, a bubble butt and a 10 inch waist
She's got a way, to make you pay, she'll eat you alive with your credit card

Ch. She's your cybergirl, she's your cyber baby
She's your dream girl, she's your cybergirl

2. She's got planks from one country to another, but she'll tell you "there's no other"
She plays shuttlecock, 'cause she's a living doll

Ch. She's your cybergirl, she's your cyber baby
She's your dream girl, she's your cybergirl

DOES THE CARPET MATCH THE CURTAINS?

(Copyright 09/2006 Rob Bender)

1. She's a blonde, with brown lashes
She's a redhead, but she's really a brunette,
She's a mod, she's a . . . punk rocker
She might put out, if u want her . . .

CH.
But does the carpet match the curtains?

2. She's got style, electric mayhem
She's got a, white kitty . . . it's a Persian
She's a Goth, maroon lipstick,

CH. rpt.

3. She's a classic, she drives a, '67 Falcon
She's got legs up to her hips,

Track Name: Attack Of The Toxic Shock Tampons
ATTACK OF THE TOXIC SHOCK TAMPONS

(Copyright 09/2006 Rob Bender)

1. Forgotten all connection, no guarantee to find it
Looking in no direction, out of a one track mind
Sometimes the only action, is when you don't decide it
Wait for a chain reaction, but you don't have the time

2. Sometimes the only answer, is standing right before you
Night is a strong enhancer, of things as plain as day,
No time to beg the question, no mind to reason why,
It's just a sharp reflection, in which to do or die
Track Name: Think Things Over
THINK THINGS OVER

(Copyright 2006 Rob Bender)

1. Simple days of before, lookin' back from the outside
Along the trail to the shore, we'd be spending together
But holding on to the past, doesn't lead to a future
You're only cheating yourself, if you hold on forever

CH.

You could be what I need, just give me some time, to think things over
Maybe we'll wait and see, just give me some time, to think things over

2. The lonely path to your door, overgrown with discontentment
We should have seen it before, but that's wisdom of hindsight
But don't be hard on yourself, love is blind from the inside,
'Cause it's a matter of choice, what you do, or you don't do

CH. rpt.
Track Name: So I Married A Fcktard Murderer
SO I MARRIED A FUCKTARD MURDERER

(Copyright 07/2004, Rob Bender)

1. Baby when I met you, there was something strange
About the way you kept your knives, in the bathroom cab'net
You'd trawl the clubs at night, looking for male strippers,
Then tip-toe up the stairs, in your bedroom slippers!

Where are you?
Where are you?

2. A harmless bit of whacking, soon turned into hacking
It put them in a whirl, to find you were a girl!

Where are you?
Where are you?
Track Name: Position Impossible
POSITION IMPOSSIBLE

(Copyright 2008 Rob Bender)

1. Traffic lights and dead end streets, forgot what I had to say,
Victoria 3-7-9, inside the New York Cafe,

Bridge 1.
September she was mine, but by January she went her own way

2. I went down to the wailing wall, to look out across the sea,
Picked her up 2 hours before, and got what I didn't need,

Bridge 2.
October she was fine but by February she went her own way again
Went her own way again, she went her own way

Bridge 3.
I know that love is blind but can we stay together for worse or better?

3. Took a stroll on Manly Wharf, and stood on the windy beach,
Threw myself right off the gap, and drowned in a blooded sea,

Bridge 4.
But how was I to know she was getting ready to make her way back to me,
Make her way back to me, she made her way back
Made her way back to me, she made her way back
Track Name: If You Only Knew
IF YOU ONLY KNEW

Copyright 08/2006 Rob Bender

1. If you knew what they really thought
What goes on, in private talk
If you knew how he really feels,
You wouldn't be chasing at his heels
If you knew how she really felt
You'd wanna get it off with someone else

CH. Yeah, yeah yeah yeah
If you only knew
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
If you only knew

2. If you try, to read her tears,
You'd find that they aren't, that sincere
Wouldn't it, be so nice,
To know what, she really thinks,
Two-faced friends in disguise
But you might not like, what they say

CH. rpt.

3. If you heard them behind your back,
You might take, a different tack
All the words that you'd never hear,
Would become, crystal clear
There can be no revelation
Call it self-preservation,
'Cause if we all really knew,
There would be just me and you

CH. rpt.

Outro
Sometimes, you're better off that you don't know
Sometimes, you're better off that you don't know
Track Name: Billboards
BILLBOARDS

(Copyright 1993/2006 Rob Bender)

1. We never get too far, without a price to pay
The other side takes heart, with nothing more to say,
As the day breaks, into your room, right through your window pane,
I'll be driving, by open fields, along the highway lane

(Which reminds me . . .)

CH1. "You'll never see, a billboard lovely as a tree,
Perhaps unless, the billboards fall,
You'll never see a tree at all,"
Said Ogden Nash in '33, in a parody of Joyce Kilmer's "Trees",
The flying dove, the velvet glove,
Have come to wave "Goodbye my love"

2. Words are not enough, when words are all you've got,
The reasoning drags on, because it's all a con
And the night holds, a place to delve,
Into the reasons why
But it won't change, a single thing,
'Cause I've made up my mind

CH2. The time has come, to find a space where I belong
No telephone, and no way home,
I watch the endless sky alone
And the winter shade, from the trees above,
Hide the colours of your undying love,
Exchanging rings, and other things,
Doesn't count for anything.

(That reminds me . . .)

CH1. "You'll never see, a billboard lovely as a tree,
Indeed unless, the billboards fall,
You'll never see a tree at all,"
Said Ogden Nash in '33, in a parody of Joyce Kilmer's "Trees",
The flying dove, the velvet glove,
Have come to wave "Bye-bye my love"
Track Name: Mary Celeste
MARY CELESTE

(Copyright 1994/2008 Rob Bender)

1. It's all too much, even though it's not enough
Reasons why, start to march into the night

Ch 1. Running out and running in, through the fields of desperation,
Only ten set on their way, but none came back to
Save the day

2. Our ship set sail, on chiding seas, on beds of nails
No time to lose, to tragedise this ocean cruise

Ch 2.
Rabbits' feet and bain-maries, fun and games upon the high seas
Ocean wrecks on tortured sands, this is where our journey lands
Track Name: The Gap
THE GAP

(Copyright 2001, Rob Bender)

1. The sky and the trees don't mean anything to me, without you, without you
The stars in your eyes are not telling me goodbye, but it's blue, without you

Ch. Without you, you

Parting with you, is always such sweet sorrow,
But on the bright side, there'll always be tomorrow.

2. She's big on petite, from her head down to her feet,
Can you guess who, is fond of you?

Ch. Without you, you

Parting with you, is always such sweet sorrow,
But on the bright side, there'll always be tomorrow.

3. You're my shining star, oh so near but yet so far,
And it's true, I'm telling you

Ch. Without you, you
Track Name: You Know What To Do
YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO

(Copyright 10/2003 Rob Bender)

1. If you got worries baby, you know you can always count on me
If you got worries baby, you know you can always count on me,
Well you know that any evening,
I'm always here, to set you free

2. If you got troubles baby, then you know just what to do
If you got troubles baby, then you know just what to do,
Well you know that there's a pillow,
Waiting right here just for you

3. If you got hangups baby, weighing on your troubled mind
If you got hangups baby, weighing on your troubled mind,
When you get yourself together,
You don't know, what you might find
Track Name: Your Love Is High
YOUR LOVE IS HIGH

1. Your sweet breath, is just an inch away
But it feels like, wind on a summer day
Your love is high, but your lips are low
Track Name: Golden Showers
GOLDEN SHOWERS

(Copyright 07/2004 R. Bender)

1. With the breaking of the waves, on the reef,
I knew you were different, underneath,
When I took off your clothes, you were full of holes
Our love was strong and free, are you ready for me?
Take me to the shower, make it last an hour
Give it to me baby, you know you make me crazy

Ch1. And I, love your shower, and you, your can shower. . . me

Wait till I get, my hands on you

Ch2. I, love your shower, scene . . . I

Loves her ice, 'cause she do it all night!
Track Name: In Your Dreams
IN YOUR DREAMS

Copyright 08/2006 Rob Bender

1. If you should go, if you should leave
I'd understand, because I know
That life is just, a space in time
For souls to connect, enough to find

CH1. Someone like you, to call my very own,
And just so that you know,
I'll be looking for you
In my dreams, together we will be,
And I'll be waiting for you
In my dreams

2. The love we made, was not in vain,
I wouldn't change, any day
But knowing you, in every way
I'm sure you'd say, I was lucky to find

CH2. (CH1 rpt.)

3. What I'm trying to say, is I'm ok
And I'd want you to, live and be happy
Our memories, can never fade,
Don't mourn for long, 'cause I live on

CH3. In your dreams, we will be together
And just so that you know,
I'll be coming for you
It's not goodbye, I tell you it's alright
And I'll be holding your hand,

CH4. In your dreams, we will live forever,
And there will be no sorrow
No waiting for to-morrow
Just together, until the end of time
No pain and no goodbyes
We'll be one in

CH5. Our dreams, I'll be coming home,
And just so that you know,
I'll be looking for you
In your dreams, together we will be,
And I'll be coming for you,
In your dreams
Track Name: 1500 Thousand Pieces
FIFTEEN HUNDRED THOUSAND PIECES

(Copyright 1993 Rob Bender)

1. Wait outside, with the motor on,
Take a drive, in the evening sun,
Fifteen hundred thousand pieces on the ground.

CH.
Too late, she's about to just get,
Some ways, from the place where we met
Over here, and over there
Time to make some time, for another story
Far away from now, misery to glory over here . . .
She's over there

2. Haven't I, seen this place before?
Haven't I, touched your face and thought?
It's not easy and it wasn't in the plan.

CH. RPT
Track Name: Napalm
NAPALM

(Copyright 1991 Rob Bender)

1. Holding on, till the rest, has come and gone . . .
Counting down, all nine lives, until there's none . . .

CH.
No escape, hot as sun, but you'll never out-run
(The napalm)


2. The rain comes down, in steady streams,
On and on, more than some,
And in my mind, cemented scenes, soldier on.


3. We time-line through, a thousand years,
A dot in time, we're here and gone,
A little lie won't do, any harm . . .
But I could be wrong . . .

CH.
No escape, hot as sun, but they never can run . . .
(From the napalm)

2. You don't shower, your pussy power,
Smells like sex, it's a hex . . . now come!
Track Name: Just For Now
JUST FOR NOW

(Copyright 1990 Rob Bender)

1. White lies, in dark disguise,
Anyway no matter which way, you turn
While the questions are sometimes misleading,
The answer is always the same

It's alright, if you can try,
To forget about life, for a while,
'Cause the story don't end till you're . . . gone

2. Far away from reason's grasp,
Just wasting time.
When you're mind is a pool full of nowhere,
But yet everywhere at the same time,

Take a dive, into the night,
Until everything drops out of sight,
Because nothing is something until . . .

It's over . . .

Solo

It's over . . .
Just for now.
Track Name: Turn A Page
TURN A PAGE

(Copyright 1993 Rob Bender)

1. You've been lookin' for somethin'
That you cannot see,
All the load you've been carrying is
Coming down on me

2 Nothing less, nothing more,
Nothing really matters that mattered before,
Lotsa girlies coming through but
None of them are you.

(Hidden verse)
Take a look, turn a page in a world of make believe
And you know that tonight, it's alright

(Hidden chorus)
For the first time today,
It's alright to say the things
You know you wanna say.

(Hidden verse)
Have you seen, all the spies
In the corners of the eyes
Waiting there, for a small victory


5. You want someone, call on me
You need freeing, I can set you free,
I could be, on your mind
Everyday, all the time

6. Strangers cross like ships at sea, their ardent thoughts lie sound in sprees of
Reasons waged and intertwined, and thoughts that wait late to be lined.
Are you calling? Hear you calling?

7. Though most paths are separate lines, they will together meet sometimes and
If they do then let them show, what seasons new from this will grow
So I say come follow me, into the arms, of destiny,
Only calm tranquillity, and all your troubles are set free.
Are you calling? Hear you calling?
