    You could download this track if you really wanted. But it's just a short sample of each of the four songs which will be on this EP when it's finished. The idea is that if you buy the album, you'll get all four songs.

    I promise that everyone who pre-buys will get a CD - and that ONLY people who pre-buy will.

    CD pressing will happen in mid-January 2011. That's your deadline to purchase by.

lyrics

I'm cooking fish on a fire in the belly of a whale, it was a year ago now that I set sail away from home, away from all I know. It was always my intention to get a little lost - a little lust was never lost my
ever-longing heart - it beat in time to keep the time to kill the time to kill.

The search for finer things delays the wine and wedding rings, but, oh! The finer things!

I'm 23 and restless I know I should settle down. I've tried, I've tried endless, but it's been twice now that I've been left alone with naught but age. Well she'll show up I'll thank you, yeah, I'll praise you like I should and everything that I believe will become misunderstood. Two boats sailing, crashing into one.

The search for finer things delays the wine and wedding rings, but, oh! The finer things!
I said the quest for finer things delays the wine and wedding rings, but, oh! The finer things!

This is the counter-call to all who fall, who were told the lie we told, who now gather round the crater, praying together, to whoever, that we might change for the slightly better. Dare we blame our mother or father that it's not off the radar that we're all just failures? This is a call against this all for a change!

Every echo or reflection of some far off sigh or glow will not go unnoticed and will remind me of a hope, so
I will take you now and build a home.
