Sam Rodwell This is great sing along, scream long punk rock, making me proud to come from Norwich. I expect to see them hit up Karma Cafe at some point in the future! or I would if they hadn't already broken up. Favorite track: Ebb and Flow.

Track Name: Balance
You said you were held up with something,
you were nearly dead when they found you
cleaning the swimming pool out with your teeth

You came out of it all unsteady,
shaky and unrecognisable
sneezing red and white right into the water

I'll force feed you,
salt and water,
until you sick up what you did

'cos you fucked up,
and that's so unlike you
you're usually so well balanced and i swear

We were making history, you were just making a mess
cleaning the swimming pool with your teeth

you came out of it all unsteady,
shaky and unrecognisable
sneezing red and white right into the water

and that's when they found you

father, murder. that's all she said
Track Name: Allardyce
..And these little accidents keep on happening
the pool, the car and the way you look at her
It's all a little too easy and a little too quick
I want you to slip that bit slower

Hey man, i saw your sister at a party,
she's turning out exactly how you never wanted to be,
she's shaky and far too proud of the fucked up kids she gets connected to

and can you tell her she won't find anything in the bottom of that bottle she hasn't found a thousand times before

there's nothing to it

Hey man, Iv'e seen your sister at a party,
she's turning out exactly how you never wanted to be,
scratching around for excitement on scabby floors, slipping on bloody knees and open sores

there's nothing to it
Track Name: White on Gold
and I'm glad you invited him,
like to know what I'm up against
but he's a prince and you're a mess

but do you remember,
yeah you used to be better,
before you started getting low in your car
you got so dull

and it's boring to see you like this,
strung out and bust up
when did you get so spineless?
getting low in the back of your car

and now your checking in,
pressing hard against his crown,
gold on white, white on gold

and he's a magician,
conjuring dirt cheap tricks
he's Mark Wilson and your Nani Danelle,
he's still too good for you

and it's boring to see you like this,
strung out and bust up
when did you get so spineless?
getting low in the back of your car

you got so dull
Track Name: Things I'm Never Getting Back
Everything dies, and that's a fact
but i know everything that dies,
won't ever come back

and is it really worth it?
getting angsty over a phone call?
there are some things I'm never getting back
Track Name: Ebb and Flow
i can see you're going through your motions
painted red and you're barely breathing
cut up, beat down, lucked out
positive thoughts man, positive thinking

'cos you're not the prince you once were,
but your not as bad as her, no not if you tired
you kept your crown, but it's slipping
like the sweat on your head, like the girl in your bed

and everything starts and everything ends
you just enjoy the conflict, and the cuts that come with
treading water, trading awkward glances. It's far too easy.

and like I said, everything ends
but these endings get romanticized

I'm just hoping your's does to


you kept your crown, but it's slipping
like the sweat on your head, like the girl in your bed
