about

Thanks to Luke Fewtrell-Bowers & Chris 'Boom' Traverse who made this album possible. No thanks to the inferior studio who let us down initially for recording drums. You suck. Long live the Temple of Boom.

Track Name: How To Start Fires
This is how it feels
This beating chest
Weight of Versailles
Wait and re-act


You're looking away
Please hold your eyes
Focus your eyes
Focus your eyes


This is how it feels
This march on west
Weight of Versailles
Wait and re-act


You're looking away
Please hold your eyes
Don't close your eyes
Don't close your eyes


This is how to start fires
such tinder thin purpose
This is how to start fires
Reichstag a-woken


Bayonet, you're charging forth
Crawling across the western front
Bayonet, you're charging forth
Crawling across the western front
So turn and twist the...
Track Name: Artificial Satellites
In the sense we do mean it
I'm staring back at these four walls
But they won't say what they mean to say
I'm staring back at these four walls
But we take on opinion
Relent & repent
Relent & repent
All stops on this progress
God calls the shots
God calls the shots
God calls the shots

The Latitude
The moves we make
The longitude
The orbits fake?

Galileo broke the mould
Take on this ebb & flow

The Latitude
The Longitude

Progress like light - The latitude
And yet it moves - The longitude
Progress like light - The latitude
And yet it moves - The longitude

Galileo broke the mould
Take on this ebb & flow
Galileo broke the mould
Take on this ebb & flow

The sun doesn't circle me
I circle the sun
This sudden form of history
Hasn't even yet begun
Track Name: Straight Narratives
lyrics
This is our sound
One straight narrative
This may sound strange
I feel opaque
One won't forget
the meaningless
pressure you won't relent
One can walk


You've got all of this heart
but none of the structure
Let's turn and shoot
Let's make this picture


This is our town
Burn all the negatives
From reel to reel
This footage feels
We shoot ourselves
We own this sound
Release the spools
One can walk


You've got all of this heart
But none of the structure
Let's turn and shoot
Let's make this picture


You film it
Directed

You speak it
Dictate it

You film it
Directed

You speak it
Dictate it


Steer the scene away from the rocks
Uncompromised, the vision of what?
Track Name: History of a Drowning Boy
Hands tight
Life drains as we gasp for air
With lungs full we bathe
Bathe the day as if it was our last
We gasp for air as life ebbs away

Thick like blood this vicious ink
Never read a word, Never read a word
Crime to crime no truer link
Never read a word, Never read a word

Holding mouths
Hear no screams
Sear the limbs
The memoir sings

Life is a cause you can't fight anymore
Life is a cause you can't fight anymore
Life is a cause you can't fight anymore
Papers from a prisoner
Rings the sound of the gavel of a judge
Track Name: International Currencies
Swing for me
Pendulum feet you swing for me
Blood soaks the guillotines
and soaks the rope

Swing for me
Pendulum feet you swing for me
Third Reich atrocities
But we're lead by this hope

This is all a memory
This is all we've ever known
Check along the Reichsmark
Check amongst the silent old

In our futures
Something good will come
In our futures
Solid walls will fall
