FlakeTwist Despite owning this EP for a while, I only listened to it properly the other day. WOW! If you're after a new rock listen, you can't go far wrong with this. It should be in many more collections. Favorite track: Winter.

We will be first Crippled but kind, and marginalized Way out of whack this age has been sold for scraps Take it! Take - you know what you're lacking We really want to be thankful It could rain and it could hail We'd still be young and stoked to fail "Courting" is so antiquated We all know what we want So she covers her eyes His hands on her thighs Well trained for this "You're gorgeous," he says And lays back on the bed The script is in her head What is young? Fourteen was fun It's time we act our age "Count your blessings!" he was told by his father He was hunter, he'd been trained by his brothers She was actually just like his mother Oh, wait on me! A girl can dream Wait and see, a girl Count your blessings, rain and hail Lost misguided souls for sale. But who's buying?

A Gift Upon Return We've both been separate for months now. Single? There's a black label replacing my wretched company You want progression with no pain, no gain Not dead, not living, just drinking Tonight it looks like it's rain I guess I'll stay inside again and start the waiting And stay out of the night It's half past one when you get home Drunk and angry: I'm "no fun at all" We are the hollow ones. Don't you know? We're convenient That's our strength, our crutch I know! You've told me: I need to choose, I need to specialize But I've ignored you You were supposed to be there But you said there's always time You were supposed to be there For the misery we'd find You were supposed to be there

Gotta grow the roots. There's a pressure that makes us bend I don't want to die this way Now the winter's come and I've shed my leaves again I don't want to die today Barely keeping up I've seen the road most travelled on and swept the crumbs aside There's no doubling back, no time to choose: it's do or die Bundling up for the winter, try to keep warm for the winter If we could hope to feel this way for all our lives Like a mountain stream, rejuvenating Like not being loved in so long We are dreamers all, we don't ask the questions We've seen the drop and it's so far If we could hope to feel this way for all our lives And keep the wonder that uncertainty provides And show the world we're not a bunch of fuck ups We'll show them how! If we could hope for all our lives

Sometimes you're lost in all the mess And don't recall the things I said Trying to stay on this side of excess This drink has got me thinking God knows we've got our vices (and mine's asleep at thirty thousand) Just a change in perspective Or we'll keep drinking from this fountain We've been down this road before Addiction's at the door My resolve is wearing thin And we're down now You can hold the crown, you can sing the song And everyone will play along If you do step down, this is common ground Join us: the ordinary I won't be that broken record, I'm no good samaritan I'm just trying to keep the vultures off your fence Now this drink has got you thinking

Morning came quick, but morning came at least It's nice to see the sky, but Stephen won't have time The transport leaves at nine Gotta kiss the kids goodbye Angry, always so angry and short on time Plug the earbuds in and start rewinding Never so happy and full of life But that's the price Ambition became greed Travel became business Love, a conquest Dreams to dust. There must be a reason I feel like my hands are tied I left my heart back where I met you Don't turn away It's more than a mirror I left my heart back where I met you By foot and rail I miss your touch I left my heart back where I met you
