about

A double A-side single featuring a few tracks we have debuted live this year.

Each song is a little something new for us in one way or another, and as always, all tunes were recorded at our respective homes and tweaked and twiddled with all by ourselves.

Track Name: If.Then.Else
It's not about the best of plans we've laid,
More each dead-end intention,
Still stuck and stained in all the mire you'd hoped to ignore,

Pre-construct a face to show disdain,
Your defensive position precedes this only cos you know you've seen it before...

Still pay no mind when all you find are hollow and insincere ways of waking up forsaking structures in time, Placed as self-effaced you hold back only so much of all other ways you count the days in reasons and rhymes...

Are patterns forming if they're left unseen?
Not betrayed by admission,
Now recognising all to late both answer and call...

Every room feels like a holding cell,
So trapped in definition,
You lose each day walking a tightrope waiting to fall...

Pay no mind when all you find are hollow and insincere ways of waking up forsaking structures in time, Placed as self-effaced you hold back only so much of all other ways you count the days in reasons and rhymes...

Pay no mind when all you find are hollow and insincere ways of waking up forsaking structures in time...
Track Name: Eve
Placed deep within they lie,
The shapes and sounds, combined realised,
This surest of resolve, still pales and dissolves...

So scared I may, talk in cliches, ruin all we've made.
You deserve more, than an encore, of words said before I knew what they meant to me...

Please don't feel I'm cold,
Though tied, restrained and far from bold,
There's not a shred of doubt to keep me screaming out...

So scared I may talk in cliches, tarnish all we've made. You deserve more than an encore of words said before...

And now seconds slow, they crawl caught in your glow, And pass, piece by piece, each eased to sweet release...

And they're better for the less and more and my stretched and strained contrived misgivings that I'll speak in cliches, that I still may, ruin all we've made...

You deserve more, than an encore, so I'll strive for, something I'm sure makes your mind...
Track Name: Say It's Simple
You say it's simple and I'll agree,
An ever after but made for three,
Pre-planned and tailored, no need to nail the details home,
Not one to pry but even if I could make it known,
Why waste a breath on dragging whats left up just to be shown...

It's you and him now and that's ok,
I make my peace in the oldest way,
Scorned bruised and battered, each loose end tattered, torn and frayed,
Piecing the whole from fragments you stole along the way,
Should find this hard but leaving no scars it's just one more day...

So here's to your ever after, you took it faster than I could give still,
I'd never hold against you your new found means to prepare to live.
We'll part whole but never equal, I found my reach while you lost your hold on
All I was ever scared to nearly admit to before I felt so held down...

You say it's simple and I'd agree,
An ever after not meant for me,
Tied, pained and bonded, too soon forgot the point you made,
You held the mirror made it so clear I'd overstayed,
Who's left to tell you you're just a shell it's you you've betrayed...
