about

This EP has been quite a while in the making.
We took all the time we needed to bring you in our opinion
the strongest and most personal 3 Songs we have crafted so far.
We redefined ourselves and added new elements.
Also this is our first record as a quintet and we couldn't be more
proud of the result! Thanks to everyone who has ever helped out this band in any way up to this point. Be it coming to shows, buying merch, giving us food and a floor/couch to crash on or helping out in any other way: THANK YOU!

Track Name: Tides
Say what you want me to say
And I will speak my heart in time
I'll be here waiting for a change
It's so hard to watch you from afar

The tides drag me out to sea
and I need you more than ever,
to hold my head above the water
when I can't keep the blues at bay

I'm feeling so displaced
lately nothing goes my way
So I float amongst the waves
with no land in sight

Now the words come out all wrong
when I sing myself to sleep
Put me to rest, put me to rest
This world spins way too fast for me

I know that it seems awkward
when I'm alway staring off into nothing
So I pretend that it's okay
when I'm just lying through my teeth again

I'd rather hide myself away
from everyone and everything
So I float amongst the waves
with no land in sight

Just a fucking shipwreck!
Lost at sea,
somewhere between home and
where I'm supposed to be

Now the words come out all wrong
when I sing myself to sleep
Put me to rest, put me to rest
This world spins way too fast for me

When I sing myself to sleep

Say what you want me to say
And I will speak my heart in time
I'll be here waiting for a change
It's so hard to watch you from afar
Track Name: Another Year
These days drag on

The time flies by and still I'm stuck in the same place
I'm drowning in a sea of dust without the only face I trust
Remorse has gripped me, There's just no way to cut these ties
I'm all wrapped up in apathy, it seems that I have lost my way

I'm just a shell of what I used to be
and time slips by so ruthlessly

Grab a hold of me
this void, it eats me up inside
I'm growing numb to the lies I tell myself
and these days drag on and on and...
Lead us both astray
Show me something time can't take away
I'm growing numb to the lies I tell myself
and these days drag on and on and on

Everything feels like a re-run
I've seen this all before
And I'm drowning
slowly
sinking
deeper

The time won't wait for me to catch up with myself
While all my friends are busy making plans
I see them crumbling in my hands
I'm still afraid of change, seeking comfort in nostalgia
Another year has gone so fast and I'm always clinging onto the past

I'm just a shell of what I used to be
and time slips by so ruthlessly

Grab a hold of me
this void, it eats me up inside
I'm growing numb to the lies I tell myself
and these days drag on and on and...
Lead us both astray
Show me something time can't take away
I'm growing numb to the lies I tell myself
and these days drag on and on and on


Everything feels like a re-run
I've seen this all before
I'm drowning in the undertow
I'm longing for the shore

And These days drag on and on and on

Start living, stop waiting to die
Track Name: At War With Myself
I built these walls up high
to hide the sorry state I put my toul into,
condemned myself to roam these empty rooms.
I hadn't thought i through.
Cause trying to lock away the worst of my regrets
didn't work, now they're stuck in my head

Whispers coming from my backdoor
but I refuse to head them call.
My demons wait for me to open
but I won't let them in
This time I won't let them in!

Sick of playing hide and seek
with shadows dancing in those corners of my mind,
just reflections of a distant life
I never speak a word while all these thoughts are rushing
'round inside my head, in every night that I spent wide awake

The outside always looks so calm
while there's a storm raging inside

Whispers coming from my backdoor
but I refuse to head them call.
My demons wait for me to open
but I won't let them in
This time I won't let them in!

I'm at war with myself tonight
I need a thousand words to make things right
