'This Life' EP - Out 26th January

Let It Roll On

Don't make me, wake me
I am still asleep
I'm a rock, I'm a thousand years old
Surrounded by sea, I dream of where I'll be
When I get going, I get going, I get gone

And I won't be afraid, in my shadow is a cave
For we all have a darkness in our mind
Don't feed, it will bite
Make it drown in your light
Let it roll, let it roll on

Cause to give is a thing that you won't regret
To see a smile alight
Cause I just want to touch your mind
As we move along, move along and move on

I won't bring to the table, I'm the beggar at the feast
And the curtain closed between us and them
So if the happiness in life, is bright in your eyes
Make it shine, make it shine on

And when I haven't got a hand nor a leg on which to stand
Will you be a shoulder I can lean on?
When the apple of your eye, seems to fall from your sky
Let her go, let her go on

Cause maybe life's just a joke in some picture book
So please don't cry
Just laugh
And let it roll on
Just let it roll on
On
Woooo hoooo, ooooh on

 

This Life

This life
When you’re alone and thinking, the night turns black
There’s all but a sound, that’s telling you that,
I’m never gonna get away from myself,
But my hearts trapped in your white padded cell,
We all assume, the way fairer man,
Will take on the world when he can

This life, and the day I fall off,
I feel a low inner sense 
In the red fire night time in June

When you’re a stone and sinking, right from the surface
Throw your line down, I’ll climb right back
I’m never gonna get away from myself,
But I miss you when I’m someone else
I never wanna take away from your life
But I’m just another run away

Put the soap under the sink and make it suitable for your woman
It goes on and on

This life, just a side effect lying in my bed 
A thousand years ago and I’m still young
With a thousand or 10 more to go
That day we felt so alive,
So alive

However you want it, however you don’t
However you need it so much you could choke,
However you want it, however you don’t

 

Burn Away 

Brothers,
Why do we burn our houses down?
Under the ashes of the night,

For lovers, 
When will we turn, turn away,
Out through the garden to some others way
And I, will lie in myself,
Just swimming through these open lanes of 

Worry,
Why are you taking all of my time?
Just crystallising all of my rhymes
With thoughts of the days
How they burn, burn away like the summer fires in June

On this night, the coastline I’m dreaming
As we burn burn, burn away
I wake and my hands are tied
And the bright lights are screaming like wild
I’m twisted in the city and I’m wasting all of my time

In the suburbs,
A gang of hawks hover by,
And they said hey man do you sing or sigh
‘Cos you can use your troubles,
To make something better out of your life
‘Cos crystallising takes a lot of time
And pressure from the waves,
But she wasn’t late or not a moment, too soon

On the underground, the fried minds, hot ceilings
They turn, turn, on/off again
I’m wired on this northern line, and you’re the only thing on my mind
That burns burns, burns away

Are we all lost in the city, well maybe that’s just not for me?
‘Cos I wake and my hands are tied, 
And you’re the only thing on my mind
I’m twisted in the city and I’m wasting all of my time

I’m twisted in the city but I’m coming home tonight,
All the way down
 

Possibility

I fell on darker days once more, my pridian slumbers showing me the door
I’m dreaming, dreaming about a life,
The serendipity cold woke me up and I was dreaming this is where i grew up
But I’m mistaken, mistaking the night away

Little dreamer please leave me be, 
Little dreamer you take, take from me and I don’t even notice, I don’t even exist
Little dreamer please leave me be, on this road of possibility
My friend this loneliness, not knowing where you’re going is a joke

I fell on a road with forks of white lightning,
On an interstellar reaction through the time of my life
I wasn’t living, ‘cos living would be a stable mind I could find
Well are you stealing from me now
I’m on a road with directions to the back of my mind
Where I’m awaking, awaking again to find

Little dreamer please leave me be, 
Little dreamer you take, take from me and I don’t even notice, I don’t even exist
Little dreamer please leave me be, on this road of possibility
My friend this loneliness, not knowing where you’re going is 
Little dreamer please leave me be oh you know
Possibility
Oh oh oh
 

 

 

 

 

Poor Soul

Poor soul
You're down on your weather and out on your luck in the summer

You got it wrong you take for granted what's for free

The world's a better place man when you're doing things for free
Doing things for free

But I just don't wanna talk about it to you
So why can't you just keep it to yourself man

So why can't you just keep it to yourself man
Keep it to yourself

But I just don't wanna talk about it to you
So why can't you just keep it to yourself man

Taking this path when you're taking on the final walk oh
I beg to know just who you are
Taking this path when you're taking on the final walk 
I beg to know just who you are

Smoke your hazey jane and you just can't go wrong
Let me tell you now
Smoke your days away and you just might get gone 
Oh ohhhh
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shadow Lake EP Lyrics

What It Is
 
It's written all over you but I can only see
There’s a wakening, a moment in the silent aviary
I wish that I could always be the hands upon your time
But I feel the more I want it babe, I’m drifter, you decline
 
If I could only ever see you for one more day
But it wouldn’t break the feelings any easier away
 
What it is to be ain’t what it used to be
For what it is, for what it is to be
 
For what it’s worth, don’t waste your life
On what could've been, or what should be mine
Take away a moment just to watch the ocean breathe
For what it is, for what it is
 
We can all live happily I’ve seen it oh I swear
Just across the dirty water on the lake of our despair
I used to live alone with you but now you never talk
Of the little house upon the hill that fell into the walk
 
We can only be oh what it is to be
 
Don’t look back, or underneath
What could it be?, that blackened sea
If we could only ever see the animal beneath
 
I wish that I could only be the wailing island rain upon your face so pale,
Nothing but an energy evolving into everyone, but me...
 
Don’t look back, don’t waste your life
On what could've been or what should be mine
If we could only ever see the animal beneath
For what it is, for what its, for what it is
 
You will only ever be the apple of my tree
But the raging storm bestowed me and you fell away from me
I can still taste you in the summer when you’re sweet
For what it is to me

One Day
 
All we ever wanted in this soul embedded sea
I was sinking in the waves but now I’m tall enough to feel for the other ones
 
Only ever turning when the world is on its knees
And I’m thinking in these ways that it’s hard enough to see
Why they lie to you again, blame ride in on me
I can hear the sea of your unwarm certainty in the way
 
All they ever wanted it’s just thrown out in a drain
We are stable in our kingdom they are turning away
All we ever learn it is not all just what seems
They wanna make you part of something that you don’t want to be, and is that wrong?
 
One day...
 
Only ever yearning in this cag'ed fallacy
We are sinking in the pages and the self-image of who you’re told you wanna be
Only ever turning when the pages are clean
In the spaces in between the faces all in your ruling turgid magazine
 
All we ever learn it is not all just what it seems
They wanna make you part of something that you don’t want to be
Only ever yearning yet I feel I’m half-awake
I wanna float down ever carelessly away away from me
 
For one day
One day
One day
For one day
 
Only ever yearning yet I feel I’m half-awake
I was sinking now I’m crying, I was standing on the ceiling when this day began
 
 
Shadow Lake

Don’t give yourself away
To the shallow arms of the shadow lake
don’t love no thing too much
‘Cos the more you hold the more the crush
 
Saw light, upon my corner
And in a sleepy rush I felt the edge
When you’re hollow and I’m over-worn
 
Outside, yeah,
When the wolf lay down and took the rain
Oh he was so hung up about warmer days
Why do you bother, aren’t we the same?
All I need... to get your name out of my picture
Lord did you feel the need?
 
Saw light, upon my calling
But there's feeling wrong and there's sleeping rough
but I will not drown beneath your muddy water
‘Cos the wolf don’t drown he drinks it up
 
Underground, rippling the sound
That sightless howl,
That poison howl
Fear...
 
Outside, yeah, of the cold steel wall of the castle gate
Oh he was so hung up about the tired chase
Lord I need to get your name out of my picture
Lord did you feel the bleed?
 
Outside, yeah, of the cold steel wall he was feeling why so?
There’s a war outside and it can't be fought
Why do you bother, aren’t we the same?
So get your name out of my picture






No Purity
 
So low, long ago there was a life
A shout, in a gloom that won’t be silent
Couldn’t get no ride in a passage of time
Like a broken letter; its return never met my hand
 
May would assume, you were gone just too soon
Over the shoulder, why can’t I see it like you
Don’t take it so bad; it’s only a moment
 
No purity
No side to be
 
Alone, blessed, stressed in the alley of dread
Like a rabbit without its head-light to call a silver crown
In a dreary little town that’s making my body so frown
Since I got to know your body somehow
I want to mix with you some kind...
 
No purity
No side to be
 
Dead future
Dead part of me
 
Feels like I’m running away, but I can’t stay
I can’t stay...
 
No point of view
No side to be
No side to be
