lyrics

For the restless, for the righteous,
For friends of your loved ones.
For lost fathers, broken mothers,
To wet the head of new born sons.

And although you cannot see it, although you might not realise,
Sometimes it's grin and bear.

And although you cannot see it, although you might not realise,
Sometimes it's wear and tear.

To hide its hard, to loose your guard to forget why so we can deny...

For the victor, for the victim,
For authenticity. 
Well I can feel it, underneath this,
A family eccentricity. 

And although you cannot see it, although you might not realise,
This tree has stronger roots,
And although you cannot see it, although you might not realise,
It's our favoured fruit.

To hide its hard, to loose your guard to forget why so we can deny
To feel inspired to be admired that's why................

For your sister, for your mistress,
For your fidelity
Well I can feel it, underneath this,
A Family eccentricity.

And although you cannot see it, although you might not realise,
This tree has stronger roots,
And although you cannot see it, although you might not realise,
It's our favoured fruit.

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.
