lyrics

Through the death of a prior order, out of ashes start again,
This perennial gale keeps blowing round.

Call it the paradox of progress, one man gets to sit at the top,
but who could careless about the uncrowned.

Cos everything thing that we make will only break and in this desert we'll see for miles,
And when it's broken, you start the motion this desolations not worthwhile,
let us start let us go let's begin.

Cos we'd loose both these eyes to lessen a single from a foe,
when you reap what you sow your swinging blind.

Like the turning seasons it's perpetual, first one must leave.

Cos everything thing that we make will only break and in this desert we'll see for miles,
And when it's broken, you start the motion this desolations not worthwhile,
let us start let us go let's begin.


Shiva from start, from the first beat of heart, the architect of demise
Shiva at end, as the darkness descends, destroyer of sunrise.

Cos everything thing that we make will only break and in this desert we'll see for miles,
And when it's broken, you start the motion this desolations not worthwhile,
let us start let us go let's begin.

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.
