Live Vol. 1

This video was already being planned two years ago, before we’d even started making our first record. A lush 24 track tape recording of all the album songs being performed in a classic studio. Did I hear you’re interested in experiencing some more bells and whistles? Well I’m sorry, there’s none to be found here. For us two years ago, this idea was the perfect bookend to the debut album. Surprisingly it still feels like a good idea now, which never really happens unless its the right thing to do. You might not get much out of intently watching it through start to finish. Rather treat it like a private house concert to soundtrack your dinner preparations, with no pressure to applaud, no hiked up beer prices and the sweet option to pause for a bathroom break without missing the best bit. The performance isn’t edited in any way, just mixed, mistakes and all, so we’re concentrating hard in the video on making it sound nice. There’s a lot of nervous eye communication, a little bit of polite dancing and occasionally moments of just enjoying being right in the zone together. We’re stoked with how it turned out.

Lyrics

Allaround

I sleep to dawn.
You and I, I recall
So I might adore a timed arrival

Try re-report
every line, every wall. 
So I might adore a timed arrival. 

You wanted us to be
You wanted all alone
You didn't have to leave
You didn't have to go. 

Why wait a while 
when the woe won't resign?
I'll wait in line at the border. 

So spy, waste your time,
make a show of what you find.
I'll just wait in line at the border. 

You wanted us to be
You wanted all alone
You didn't have to leave
You didn't have to go. 

Anotherclock

Stop, you're giving it
I'm not getting it.
Stop I'm not getting it.
Another clock, its upsetting it,
Its upsetting my soul.
Oh I want back again.
But I don't mind,
I'm not taking on.
Luck, it gets imminent.
Fuck, I'm not digging it.,
I'm not getting it wrong.

Time will wait for you
When its all been done
But we're all too young.
The time we've taken to
Let it all be done
Has an open sum.
Time will wait for you.

You're not fitting it,
You're just kicking in doors.
Show a little remorse.
Now you're not wishing it,
There's no wishing it was.
You don't listen no more.

Time will wait for you
When its all been done
But we're all too young.
The time we've take to
Let it all be done
Hasn't opened some.
Time will wait for you...

Bemyself

I know that I can't be a few,
I'll be myself
I'm told to be over the moon,
I can teach myself
But I'm old, I can feel that it's true
I believe myself
And I know it'll be over soon,
I can see myself

See myself

I'm trapped, I am trapped in the boot
I can't free myself
And I'll talk, but you know there's no use
I can't hear myself
The road's blocked, I can tell that we've stopped
I will lead myself
And I know if I'm moving or not
I will be myself

Be myself.

Clockscared

I never want to be
stuck there, nowhere,
I'm caught
and I don't want to be.
Locked there, upstairs,
no more.

So I got to go, got to get it out now.
Undertow, undertaking, over doubt.
Got to go, got to get it out now.

I never want to be
stuck there,nowhere,
I'm caught.
Its better not to be
clock scared
than off tier, no more.

Its better not to be
stuck there, nowhere,
no course.
better not to be
clock scared
than off tier, no more.

So I got to go, got to get it out now.
Undertow, under, taking over doubt.
Got to go, got to get it out now.

Got to go, got to get it out now.
Undertow, undertaking, over doubt.
Got to go, got to get it out now.

Closetowhy

All that waiting for a call, It arrived,
and I know that place seems kind of close

But I can't sleep,
I can't seem to find waking peace of mind.

The fight of the evening
holds me close to why
I might never sleep at all,
even though I can't seem to find waking peace of mind.

Some might say my life's a walk in the light,
and though I'd say the same, I don't
Cause all that space inside the walls, it's alive,
and all night shaking my resolve

So I can't sleep,
I can't seem to find waking peace of mind.

Comedown

No, no, no, no, no
When it all comes down
When it falls you can finda way out
When it all hits the ground 

Come down 
When it's gone you can cry,
let it go and try
When it all comes down 
Come down

Everyroad

All of the ghosts, people you love,
even your friends don't want to know,
but you can depend on every note
over the end of every road.

Exotica

Your look
How it draws me in, a line I could never leave
Your eyes
Now I meet with them, it's all that I'll ever see
Your love
How I breath in it, it's all I would ever need
I believe in it,
It's all I could ever need.

Oh mon amour, when you walk out the door I'm more lost than before

And every night is another
Every night is another war
Lying alone but I love ya
I'll never rewind what I never

Above
How I see it is. You will get a hold of it
The height
Heavens you design, in time you'll do everything
Goodbye
What I hear of it while I'm over on the other wing
While I'm over on the other wing.

Oh mon amour, when you walk out the door I'm more lost than before

And every night is another
Every night is another war
Lying alone but I love ya
I'll never rewind what I never saw.

Every night is another

Gamesofluck

You sowed it slower to find your man,
but folding over won't hide your hand.

'cause you waited long enough,
hesitated over love
now you're taking over us.

'cause you waited long enough,
hesitated over love
now you're taking over.

I can't just believe it, I can not receive that.

The strongest shoulder won't hold you up
and cold October won't call your bluff.

'cause you make it dangerous
when you're playing games of luck,
now you're taking over us.

'cause you make it dangerous
when you're playing games of luck,
now you're taking over us

Herefore

I don't want to be caught in the middle,
taking all that I thought and setting it off.
Temporal moving forward, its superficial.

But always closing doors, but a ripple.

I'm just here for, that girl.
Would I kill for? not her.

I don't want to be torn in the middle,
its deafeningly unsure, unofficial.
But silently still we talk, though a little.
When timingly is no more, but a ripple.

I'm just here for, that girl.
Would I kill for? not her.

Hideout

I close the door to all that I am.
I called a lie, I told you all I've said.
I failed even more than I understand,
it's coming out of every wall I mend.

You know that I keep my mind on
A note that I keep hiding so long
my love, so long.

'Cause you know that I keep a hide out
and all that I'm thinking about is
'Cause you know that I keep a hide out
and all that I'm thinking about is you

Time tells me more of who that I am,
I'll kneel to all that will release my hand.
I talk to the floor, I fight to pretend.
You think that I will reach a point to mend?

You know that I keep my mind on
A note thatI keep hiding
So long, my love, so long.

'Cause you know that I keep a hide out
and all that I'm thinking about is
'Cause you know that I keep a hide out
and all that I'm thinking about is you

Iknowhowifeel

I know how I feel right now
I know how I feel now

I know how I feel but
there's a place I need to go,
over the end of every road,
where I can feel it on my own.

I know how I feel but
where the race is all I know,
only the evening, let me go
where I can feel it on my own.

I know how you feel right now
I know how you feel now

Lightenup

Time to lighten up?
I don't plan to
Time I gave enough?
I don't plan to

Every eye is on us
Every side is on us
"Sing it with pride and promise, never cry
Never cry, but you know we like it honest,
you know that's why we bought you.
I like your style and all,
but do it right.
Do it in time."

To lighten up?
I don't plan to
Time I gave enough?
I don't plan to

I need it, I love it.
The music, the time it takes for the letter to write back.
Let it go
Let it go, cause this is the final product
Drink it a while and call us
Sell it for dimes and dollars
There you go.

Myenemy

So fired up, take a seat.
So tied up, only make believe.
All my love, take from me,
All eyes up, but nothing there to see

and what I never touch, I see
And what’ll never touch me
I would've never thought, I’d be
My enemy

Cold enough, it’s shaking me
and it's so tough just waiting patiently
So time’s up, it’s jading me
And so I must fight the time we keep

Older

Show and you never will cover
what you own honey, what you own well
Holding it out will be tougher,
as I know honey, I know well.
The thought is fulfilling a label.
A token honey, token known.
Its fake though I know that you're able
to see it honey, I see you well.

Older. We want closure. You're holding on tight when your life is on hold. Neither. I don't. I don't want to leave you alone.

I'm talking my mind as I'm torn. On and on....

Recalling the exchanged words.
What you own honey, you own well
The past is a world of retained hurt,
as I know honey, I know well.
You wonder the reason you changed for.
A token honey, token known.
Time will escape, you can be sure
to see it honey, I see you well.

Older. We want closure. You're holding on tight when your life is on hold. Neither. I don't. I don't want to leave you alone.

I'm talking my mind as I'm torn. On and on....

Overnight

Go back. I want, so bad, to hold you back.
It's all I've said and done.

Fall in, be gone. I will stand as I've won again.
The reason for no more
Overnight.

The minute I was thinking
to hold you back.
The moment I was wishing,
it's overnight.

Slow down, never. I know now, I know better.
I need it more than ever.

Go back under. Hope that I fall on the track.
It's all I've said and done
Overnight.

Tape

I lost my touch and I thought it was you
I lost my way cutting corners, faulty truth
So I went on my way to recapture what you took,
and I came back with tape.
Dare I leave it? Dare I look?

No way I can go wrong
It's all there
I know the end
There's no way out so so long
Oh man, not again

Do I retain yet a feeling over you?
And should I explain to the teacher? To my muse?
So I can get a break from the preacher, from a few
So I'll go on and take what I need here, wouldn't you?

Tieduprightnow

As I look out you're warning me,
your thoughts devour my point of view
(Give you up now)
It’s true I cower when I will speak,
so let's get round to why

I will be the first in line to open up,
so I don't mind to give you up.

So let’s get round to why,
The one I need is tied up right now
So let’s just wait a while,
The one I need is tied up right now
So let’s not draw the line,
Cause I can't make my mind up right now
So let’s just wait a while,
The one I need is tied up right

I will be the first in line to open up so I don't mind
I will be the first in line to open up,
so I don't mind to give you up.

So let’s get round to why,
The one I need is tied up right now
So let’s just wait a while,
The one I need is tied up right now
So let’s not draw the line,
Cause I can't make my mind up right now

So let’s just wait a while,
The one I need is tied up right

Its unintended but all in vein
It’s what I found on my side
You knew I'd pass through it’s all the same,
So let’s get down to why

The one I need is tied up right now
So let’s just wait a while,
The one I need is tied up, right?

Withorwithout

You were the world calling out my own name
You were the girl I fell beneath every day
You were the birds talking in my dream
You were the world I wish I'd never seen.

You were the line, drawn in every way
You were divine, even though I'd say
you were the start of something I don't need
You were the world I wish I'd never seen.

With or without you?
Better without you.

Said I was more than a man in your way
Said I was yours till the end of the day
There was a time when I would have been
over the moon sinking on my knees.

You were the world calling out my own name
You were the girl I fell beneath every day
You were the birds talking in my dream
You were the world I wish I'd never seen.

Yourfault

I
I built a wall, I built it up when I was young
I didn't know, how could I know I built it up?

It's all gone
The family has moved on and I don't know if it's your fault or my fault
It's all gone
I know it now that I did wrong, but I don't know if it's your fault or my fault.

You
You took a loan, you bought a house and built it up
I'm sure you know I felt alone. I couldn't stop

It's all gone
The family has moved on and I don't know if it's your fault or my fault
It's all gone
I know it now that I did wrong, but I don't know if it's your fault or my fault

It's your fault.
