about

It's New York 88, Jason is feeling good about his debut record and the fame has gone to his head. He spends those cocaine nights recording in an even more advanced studio, banging out esoteric hits for an audience that simply wasn't ready.

Track Name: Wise
Christ what have you done?
The gates are open wide
The animals have made home
In our hearts and minds
So the world turns
And I can't be free
I'm ashamed of the consequences
All and you have read is all you have to say
It's worth nothing these days

All the gold in the world
Takes a part of you
I am stunned by what my eyes can't see
All of you so confident and sure

Cursed by all your gods
Broke the will of ours
And if you don't believe
That life begins in memories

Dance upon their beds
Screams beyond the pines
Make some distance for yourself
From your mental health
Grand design
I opine
Shame on you for being so wise

Cursed by all your gods
Broke the will of ours
And if you don't believe
That life begins in memories

And it all falls down
And it all falls down
And it all falls down
And it all falls down
In a truth
Track Name: In Panic
Burning contents of tape
Rediscover your hate
I saw the rose upon their grave and swore to her it wouldn't happen again
The gods who like to run our lives are waiting for the chance to become

Impressive
Important
Impersonal
I'm in panic

Will you see how they fell
Drag my body to hell
I took a chance on watching it begin to grow before my very eyes
I laughed and sang and wept and still I can't concern myself with these things

Impressive
Important
Impersonal
I'm in panic
Track Name: The Night Evelyn Came Out Of The Grave
Come plug me in
Increased pressure
Fall far from it
Take a good look
Now that we see
Hide your moral centre and be
Something new and gracious

An animal
A rejection of everything and us all
We can't recognise
The mistakes we made in the past
Ones we're making now
I assure
Everyone that comes on their knees
Will be saved by your heart
Eyes closed

(I become the reasonable excuse)

Now that you've come out of your grave
We understood the words you tried to say
Track Name: Under The Bridge (feat. Mecha Maiko)
My city is empty, my city is glass
It’s selling the daydreams of the middle class
They sit on the curb, while they gather the dust
An empty display looking back at the rust

Under the bridge
is where you’ll stay
I see the faces
look away
Under the bridge
I know you hurt
I wish you well
For all it’s worth
Under the bridge

Who’s knocking at my door?
No one
Who’s knocking at my door?

My city is walled, made of hoarding and chains
When we send out the cheques, it’s like severing veins
Never worry for them cause we’re worried bout us
Get declined at the store, get declined on the bus

Under the bridge
is where you’ll stay
I see the faces
look away
Under the bridge
I know you hurt
I wish you well
For all it’s worth
Under the bridge

My city’s corrupt but my city’s alive
Put a price on the land, put a price on a life
It throws a bone to the mud, and says it’s good news
It wants us to bite, but we can refuse

Under the bridge
is where you’ll stay
I see the faces
look away
Under the bridge
I know you hurt
I wish you well
For all it’s worth
Under the bridge

Under the bridge

They try to look away from you

Can’t get away
They can’t get away from you
Track Name: Glow (feat. Let Em Riot)
Swim in artificial seas
Pavement shores, sleight of hand
Current carries our weight so easily
Everything is just pretend

Rivers slowly drifting down
Pleasure in knowing there’s no way out

Everywhere I go
I can hear you calling me
Harder to say no
I can hear you calling me again

Traded youth for a silver leash
Sturdy desk for a picture frame
Wait in line to feel like a better man
After time forget my name

Future slowing, coming down
Nothing and no one to guide us now

Everywhere I go (Everything, just pretend)
I can hear you calling me
Harder to say no (Everything, just pretend)
I can hear you calling me again
