purplepixelman What an absolute peach of an EP! Beguiling and hopeful, dissonant and wondrous, leaves you stranded, then cossets you home, in soothing chimes and prose. Its a privilege to witness such beauty! Perfect. Favorite track: Drown.

Track Name: Plastic People
We're not just shapes, in plastic bags,
a bunch of pretty organisms, drenched in drink and fags,
not a disgrace, mistakes we must have,
made the best of what we're given, the best of what is bad,
humans have grace, humans are glad,
don't tell me we're geometric, stop cutting me in half

We're not just shapes, in plastic bags,
a bunch of pretty organisms, drenched in drink and fags,
not a disgrace, mistakes we must have,
made the best of what we're given, the best of what is bad,
humans have grace, humans are glad,
don't tell me we're geometric, stop cutting me in half

Plastic people with painted faces....

We're not just shapes, in plastic bags,
a bunch of pretty organisms
Track Name: Turn Off
Turn off the dark, cause it won't let me sleep,
I dream with my heart, so I don't need to think,
and I wish I could smoke, when my hands feel this bare,
there are words in my throat, but you don't seem to care,

You give me chills, in a beautiful way,
I blame your darkness for my wake,
you've got the wills, but you don't have the way,
I blame your darkness for my wake,

Turn off my heart, cause it won't let me sleep,
I knew from the start but I tried not to think,
there's a dream I could try, but it won't take me there,
so I'll sit in the light, with my hands in my hair,

You give me chills, in a beautiful way,
I blame your darkness for my wake,
you've got the wills, but you don't have the way,
I blame your darkness for my wake,

You give me chills, in a beautiful way,
I blame your darkness for my wake,
you've got the wills, but you don't have the way,
I blame your darkness for my wake,
Track Name: Origami Warfare
I remember you told me, that you were a soldier, but I would be bolder than you one day,
as a child who knew no war, only knew the man that I saw, I couldn't put these words into children's play,

You skin lines are life scars, and your old eyes are film stars, you've met real life qualms, and felt the pain,
as a child who knew no war, only knew the man that I saw, I couldn't put these words into children's play,

Hello there my old man, can I hold your paper hands? Will you show me what you saw? In your origami war,
Hello there my old man, can I hold your paper hands? Will you show me what you saw? In your origami war, in your origami warfare

I remember you told me, that you were a soldier, but I would be bolder than you one day,
as a child who knew no war, only knew the man that I saw, I couldn't put these words into children's play,
But time move and we grew, I'd forgotten these words were a product of you,
an old man, so fragile, your skin so grey,
young once and bolder, you would fight it again but this time I was older, you knew these words were in bitter taste,

Hello there my old man, can I hold your paper hands? Will you show me what you saw? In your origami war,
Hello there my old man, can I hold your paper hands? Will you show me what you saw? In your origami war, in your origami warfare

Hello there my old man,
can I hold your paper hands?
will you show me what you saw,
in your origami war, x4

Pass me a gun,
and build me an army,
let go with your thumb,
and try to disarm me x2
Track Name: Drown
So much of my mind, so much of my time, spent thinking about you, you,
and now it's all gone, what am I to do,

I still think of you, I still dream of you,

The picture that I had, I drew and then drew out, the places that I walk to, I realise I'm without, I'm without you,

Like a watering can, you went and watered me down, will you leave to float, or will you leave me to?
With your words on a rope, I followed you around, will you undo the knot, or will you pull me through? x4

I still think of you, I still dream of you....
