about

Available as a FREE DOWNLOAD or via donation. This EP represents the band's modern interpretation of the original post-punk sound and style of late 70s artists but evolves it further still, albeit in the same spirit as initially conceived.

Track Name: All My Frustrations
These empty actions
Are overdone where I couldn't try
I'm stuck between the same four walls
I see every day and night
And so I try to rid myself
Of the sense that I'm here
'Cause there is not a single thing in the world
That doesn't disappear

Now I have seen
That this is a losing game I play
Don't ever justify taking my eyes
Off the prize that eludes me again today

All my frustrations
All my work
All my frustrations
All my work

All my frustrations
All my work
All my frustrations
All my work
Track Name: Lesser Men
I have fallen
I have turned away from my convictions
Still the guilt remains
This dividing line marks a structure in my heart
That keeps me alone
All this pretense at any intimacy
Leads me to her just like the others I've seen
So we tell our lies, and I play my role
Just as well as she plays her own

Names are worthless
The skin impersonal
A collision for the vulnerable
When I lay her down, it just sets me up
For rewards I've come to regret
It consumes us
The throes of hungers that blind
No closer to what we'd hoped we'd find
So we'll use the other til there's nothing left in us
That one must forget

I will wear you out
I will break you down
I'm a lesser man
For putting on this crown
I will wear you out
I will break you down
I'm a lesser man
For putting on this crown
I will wear you out
I will break you down
I'm a lesser man
For putting on this crown
I will wear you out
I will break you down
I'm a lesser man
For putting on this crown
Track Name: The Silent Room
The only road lies through
When all promises prove untrue
Held by thoughts of what will come
A stalemate broken where no one has won
The hardest truths to admit
And the sober defeat when realization hits
No further lies as once misled
The damage now done with nothing said

A fatalistic view
On what they've put the other through
Motives neither understands
Defenseless to the force of circumstance
The silent room where it fell apart
Those burdens that complicate the heart
Such hopes buried and never found
In stark criticism of a life run aground

The soundless voice of all their reluctance
And the words that never came
Unreconciled and lost in that fatal moment

The only road ahead lies through but alone
The only road ahead lies through but alone

The soundless voice of all their reluctance
And the words that never came
Unreconciled and lost in that fatal moment
