"Honestly, I love this. Momentous. That's just ALL different shades of brilliance at once isn't it? Great guitar sound. So right. It really is. I want to know: How do you get that guitar sound?"
- BBC Radio Wales. Adam Thomas Walton show 11/02/17

"Recorded live in the studio, these songs have a punchy, visceral feel that reflect the artistic intention of the group. An old fashioned approach that should really be utilised by more rock bands."

Track Name: Dear Fear
Dear fear.
You're always near to me.
Changing your face.
Changing your shape.

But always around.
Silence is your haunting sound.
Cold is your touch.
Dry is your taste.

You're ever changing faces
Are present in all my failings.
A picture of you,
Is always with me.

And when the day comes to an end
You roam the house, you take my bed
You sing me to sleep
You're all that i dream.

Dear fear.
I hear your voice its haunting.
In tempered winds.
You draw me in.

A colourless form
lurking in doorways in the dark.
In spiky hard rain.
On empty night trains you travel.

On cold iron railings bleeding rust
With prisms of dark light you cut
Me down to the quick,
Down to the bone.

And when its necessary
To be in the mortuary
Will you follow me through
The process of death?

Dear fear.
Chasing me home. My thoughts are with you alone.
Cant seem to think of anyone else.
You paralyse me in all that i be.

Dear fear, i declare to you:
I'll chase you down, and take all your power, and cut you in half and how I will laugh.
Dear fear, you have to leave my house.

A picture of you I'll never keep with me.
Track Name: Just Desserts
Holy space case
Haste was a waste of the human race
Holy space case
Haste was a waste of the human race

You could have lived for the fight
But you didn't do.
Could have used your right hook
But you didn't know how to
Space case haste was a waste of the human race.

And if you think I put you first:
Well, you were always my dessert.
And if you think I put you first:
Well, you were always my dessert.
Track Name: Think I'll Run
There a look. Now you found me.
Drag me through the stream don't drown me.
lyrics
There a look. Now you found me.
Drag me through the stream don't drown me.
In the awesomeness I breath. I can't help but feel deceived.

All my breath you took from me.
As I see your heart is free.
Chase your rainbows and their cause.
Trip and stumble now I'm lost.

Ambiguity.
All the things you told to me
Were the things I thought i need.
Now I wear them on my sleeve.

There a look. Now you found me.
Drag me through the stream don't drown me.
In the awesomeness I breath. I can't help but feel deceived.

All my breath you took from me.
As I see your heart is free.
Chase your rainbows and their cause.
Trip and stumble now I'm lost.
Track Name: Truths Beckoning You
I got me a style looking for the truth now
In defining my style got addicted to you now
Couldn't stay single file till I bumped into you now
I got me away just to get to you now

It’s a long way to go
Long way to go
Stuck on your own, you know you got a long way to flow

On your own
On your own now
And the truth is biting you and you know.

On your own
On your own now
And the truth is beckoning you, but you just cant go.

I got me a style that’s just constructed from you now
Got a face that’s disgraced by my own confusion
Why you so stylish when you're abusing?
I'll live but it won’t be because of you now

It’s a long way to go
Long way to go
Stuck on this land and your head’s in the sand

On your own
On your own now
And the truth is beckoning you, but you just cant go.
Track Name: Finally (Come To Be)
Finally it's come to be
That you are you and I am me.
No awkwardness. No self-defence.
Just being alive. Without pretence.

When you tell me what you're thinking
Don't you know I knew it too.
You saw me falling into drinking
But the thought of losing you
Was just too hard to take sometimes
So I'd open up the wine
And open up the world's desires
That led me back to you.

Finally it's come to be
That you are you and I am me.
No waiting in the changing rooms.
Now you are me and I am you.

Two, three, four, five
You caught this fish alive.
Pulled a child out of the beehive.
And pulled us back to our own shores
Once more to swim with our own kind.
Alive to try. Finally.

Finally it's come to be
That you are you and I am me.
No awkwardness. No self-defence.
Just being alive. Without defence.

Finally it's come to be
That you are you and I am me.
No awkwardness. No self-defence.
Just being alive. Without pretence.
Track Name: Capital A Frame
Don't wanna wanna do. Don't wanna wanna do
Don't wanna do, do, wanna wanna do
Fuck Fuck.
Don't wanna wanna do. Don't wanna wanna do
Do, do, wanna do, wanna wanna do do

You got to do what he wants. Don't get to do what he does
Making changes, rearranges with a capital A.
You gotta see how feels. You gotta serve at his heels
Making changes, rearranges with a capital A Frame.

Don't wanna wanna do. Don't wanna wanna do
Don't wanna do, do, wanna wanna do
Fuck Fuck.
Don't wanna wanna do. Don't wanna wanna do
Don't do, do, wanna wanna don't do

You got to do what he wants. Don't get to do what he does
Making changes, rearranges with a capital A.
You gotta see how feels. You gotta serve at his heels
Making changes, rearranges with a capital A Frame.

Changes with a Capital A.
Changes with a Capital A.
Changes with a Capital A.
Changes with a Capital A.


You got to do what he wants. Don't get to do what he does
Making changes, rearranges with a capital A.
You gotta see how feels. You gotta serve at his heels
Making changes, rearranges with a capital A Frame.
Track Name: Here Goes
Business as usual in mind.
I take one step outside.
Drifting. Twisting. Frozen in time.
I thought somebody'd catch me
Caught me blind.

Here goes.
Can't fight the flow just go.
Here goes.
Can't fight the flow just go.

Stand up, sit down, watching sky.
Changing sounds and changing lives.
Look back, catching moments try.
Subject changing. Subject flies.

I saw God in Neath.
I met God in the street.
I saw God in Neath.
Track Name: Death Of A Halo
Transplant. Trampled. Clamoured. Cluttered.
Picture. Postcard. Image. Grey.
Overbearing. Caring. Thought Police.
No release. Still. Frozen. Prey.
And it hits that there's no going back
Blind weeping people-pleasing trap.
And all the friends and family think you're fine.

And I'm crying but I'm never alone
And the lights are out but everyone's home
And the death of this halo
Came at the wrong time.

Undercurrents. Malnutrient.
Pixelated. World. At Bay.
Mythical Escape The novel.
Falling. On deaf ears you prey.
And it hits that there's no going back
Blind weeping people-pleasing trap.
And all the friends and family think you're fine.

And I'm crying but I'm never alone
And the lights are out but everyone's home
And the death of this halo
Came at the wrong time.

(If you wanted)
(If you wanted)
(If you wanted)
You'd do what you need now
(If you wanted)

And I'm crying but I'm never alone.
And the lights are out but everyone's home.
And the death of this halo
Came at the wrong time.
Track Name: You Were The Crowd
I got a feeling that I'm under attack.
I got a feeling that they're watching my back.
On every corner where I happen to turn.
There's someone watching but it's not in return.

You were the crowd.
You were a wrong'un
You were the ringleader.

I was at the gig last night.
You and your friends were causing so much mayhem.
We were afraid for our lives.
Fortunately we took refuge in security
But you, you were out of control.
Call yourself a Buddhist?
You're a complete twat.

You were the crowd.
You were a wrong'un
You were the ringleader.
Track Name: Yours Sincerely

You're always near to me.
Changing your face.

But always around.
Silence is your haunting sound.
Cold is your touch.
Dry is your taste.

You're ever changing faces
