about

Here is our debut EP.
We set out to create something that represented the sound of our band. The approach was to track instruments live, add some texture later and give it to you.
Thanks to Evert and Louise at The Backline for engineering, mixing and mastering this for us. You guys rock!

Track Name: Until the End
Such a delicate weakness to keep your heart on the run
Pick up all the pieces you got a mouth like gun
Hot lead in the chamber son, you've got a trigger disease
You know it's got a hold of you
Black and blue ‘till you bleed

I don't need your rules
I won't play by them
You could be somebody else's fool
and play it cool 'till the end

Walk your life on a tightrope, the tension keeps you afloat
Attitude at this altitude is just a piss in the breeze
No time to come undone, spitting blood through your teeth
Nobody got control of you
Black and blue till you bleed

I don't need your rules
I won't play by them
You could be somebody else's fool
and play it cool

'till the end
Track Name: Divide
High hopes for the towns below
And they don't know that the enemy is poverty
Uproot the right man and recognise that bowing out is always wrong
Shake down the sheriff now
He's got pockets deeper than a gold mine
Time to get it right, 'cause time is wasting you

Now don't you see there's enough for you and me?
As long as we can learn to divide what is mine

Peel back the cataracts
Unless you’re liking what you see?
Turn back and face the wrap
Give it up, give it up and face the truth

Now don't you see there's enough for you and me?
As long as we can learn to divide what is mine
Track Name: Re-animate
Re-animating another cell mate in waiting
Another monkey who fell too far from his tree
You lose direction when you see how far down the food chain we are
And misdirection is the only key out of here

Refuse to be left for dead in the water
I’d exhaust the air in my lungs that keeps me alive
The bark of the dog is worse than the bite

Indoctrination into this psycho vacation
And these illusions have got me feeling hollow
These Jesus junkies won't get their fix ‘till they break me down to sticks of six
So come on, who's with me?

Refuse to be left for dead in the water
I’d exhaust the air in my lungs that keep me alive
Refuse to be left for dead in the water
The bark of the dog is worse than the bite
Track Name: The Siren's Call
In the waking hours in the dead of night
I'm shaken awake by the moonlight
I hear the whispers call out from the deep
A little closer now
Closer to me
Eyes like the fires that embrace me
A lullaby so haunting and so sweet
…to pull me down

I feel a piece of me is taken away
Like a moth to the flame, you drive me insane
Oblivious to the Siren's call
I'm in too deep
You're my femme fatal

I feel your nails right beneath my skin
Like sunburn seizures but I love the sting
To your charm and allure their ain’t no cure
A stone in your gaze
Melodies that call out from beyond
That tethers me to your hungry heart
… to pull me down

I feel a piece of me is taken away
Like a moth to the flame, you drive me insane
Oblivious to the Siren's call
I'm in too deep

I feel a piece of me is taken away
Like a moth to the flame, you drive me insane
Oblivious to the Siren's call
I'm in too deep
You're my femme fatal
