lyrics

All be it all you need is a cursed opportunity,  
To be damned before you can succeed,
To have lost what is won on the next plateau.

So poised in your poetry, your hidden hope your sanctity,
It's the rumour of your philosophy,
That you feel should be stone should be how you're known

It's all so cynical, this innocence will never be shown
It's all so cynical, this virtues limitless but not shown

The oldest juvenile too mature to be so puerile,
If you are so doomed what can you control,
No one ever grows up we can just grow old

It's all so cynical, this innocence will never be shown
It's all so cynical, this virtues limitless but not shown

It's all so cynical, this innocence will never be shown
It's all so cynical, this virtues limitless but not shown

Richard Petch's second six track EP, ‘The Innocent & The Cynic,
Walks a line between the two ideas of the title. Exploring themes of suspicion, betrayal, shame, hope, and openly exploiting and celebrating the use of oxymorons.

Mixed by Producer James Kenosha the result is an EP that condenses the sound of his debut into concise songs with a band at its core.
