about

An organic, considered, yet rough around the edges offering. Delivered with a spirited band, lead duo Glenn Musto and Jodie Lee Bartlett bring cutting lyrics, biting guitar and intense bar-room piano into this record. They analyse the harmful deeds people do to themselves and each other; escaping, lying, cheating, disconnecting, blaming, and letting people down. Not for the light-hearted, this record may pierce deep into the core of the self-reflecting listener while others will simply enjoy the custom tailored pop sensibilities and beautiful harmonies.

Track Name: The Curse Of Us
I’m counting the cost of the curse of us
letting the criminals dig with knives
at the time it made perfect sense
we could purchase better lives

I know when the tensions high
you're bound to get answer wrong
so take it in your stride, when they cut you down a size
are you gonna sleep tonight

without no regrets you smash this land
and you wait for the stocks to rise
and the world wants you to win
when it’s lost in a pit of lies

you know when the tensions high
you're bound to get answer wrong
so take it in your stride, if they cut you down a size
are you gonna flee tonight

you won’t change anything yourself, it’s a trap you can’t break out
you will still feed your kids tonight, so take it from her mouth
I’m sure you realise, we're punctured either way
I hope your feeling proud, shovelling out your grave

I know when the tensions high
you're bound to get answer wrong
so take it in your stride, when they cut you down a size
are you gonna bleed tonight
Track Name: My Confession
there was a time when I was sharp and young and focused
but your manipulation I barely even noticed

you fight me like it's only hard for you

you built a Collosseum and you dress me like a lion
you sat up next to Caeser knowing either way I’m dying

you fight me like it's only hard for you

well I’ve learnt my lesson, this is my confession

you don't have any discipline with all your carnal missions
while to me you're blaming loneliness for all your inhibitions

you fight me like it's only hard for you

well I’ve learnt my lesson, this is my confession
I’ve lost my passion, this is my confession

But I kiss you off and you pick me out again
I piss you off and you kick me out again

start again

what are you afraid of

trying to find my path, wanna make this last, gotta take my chance

well I’ve learnt my lesson, this is my confession
I've lost my passion, this is my confession
I’m leaving you
Track Name: Come To Bite Us
I will go down to the market for you
to buy your niece some sweet sixteen perfume
I would do anything you ask me to and give you everything you want

and then the day comes when I just don’t
and all the things that we just won’t do
come to bite us in two

you went and took that fancy job for me
even though it never made you happy
you said: "it’s no trouble"
to give me everything I want

and then the day comes when you just don’t
and all the things that we just won’t do
come to bite us in two

you won’t catch my heart can’t find the time to, time to

times two
Track Name: The Flood
want to forget me? please don’t do it yet
I won’t deceive you, I really shouldn’t yet
because I know my best half, is lost in translation
question’s flood down, when the drug runs out

I want to see ya, but I won’t do it yet
take another powder and break out a new sweat
anticipate the worst part when I’m stuck in emotion
questions flood down, when the drug runs out

all the questions, come flooding down to you
from all the mountains you know you can’t walk through
all the sessions that take you off the ground
bring all the tensions that tighten once you're down

my mind is grounded, my emotion is drowning
I'm completely surrounded but I don't hear a sound
Track Name: This Change
this change could be the best time of my life
this change should be the time when I do everything I want
well, it’s not and who knows what it is
so, I’m lost but I just keep pretending

they say you’re so lucky
they tell me you’re so pretty, you’ll move on
well, who cares it’s all irrelevant
well, being nowhere has no movement

if I’d realised before I stopped trying, we would have survived
If you'd taken a stand, before I stopped crying, we would have survived

this change, I’ve lost the best part of my life
with this change, having a broken heart is the best thing I’ve realized
I’m so sorry, I can’t begin to understand what you think of me
now I need to press reverse
‘cause running this way I can’t believe in anything
I shut you out and forgot what I needed, so I lost you
but now I’m home, just one more time I’m here, to tell you
I’ll change, we’ll change, rearrange, this change
Track Name: It Only Matters What We Do Now
the hand-brake's shot, trying to drive survival’s gonna be hard
two hours out of Finland and a universe from where we started
you’re tired I’m oversensitive, we fight either I’m right or your lying
and then I grab a look at you and we just smile

when I look in your eyes I know we're still strong
it only matters what we do now it doesn’t matter what we’ve done

it's bittersweet, an industry in such a sad decline
A bad night rolls into a week, we’ve gotta leave this town behind
so we drive, until the ocean swallows up the horizon
and Plymouth switches all the blue skies on

when I look in your eyes I know we're still strong
it only matters what we do now, it doesn’t matter what we’ve done
when I look in my heart I know that we can’t be wrong
it only matters what we do now, it doesn't matter what we've done

I can't begin to say, how hard it can be
doing what they say, while losing your dreams
don’t leave it up to them, you don’t need those kind of friends

when I look in your eyes I know we're still strong
it only matters what we do now, it doesn’t matter what we’ve done
when I look in my heart I know that we can’t be wrong
it only matters what we do now, it doesn’t matters what done

we could have chosen an easy life
I’d rather be playing on stage tonight
Track Name: Abandoned
I promised myself when we last spoke we would never change
I deserted you for people we hardly knew, you cried every day

did you feel abandoned? the city swept me away
now I feel hollow you're lost in the undertow, as I follow my dream
I tried to balance what can’t be

did you feel abandoned? i’m sorry I let you go

clean out the past from my spare room
clean out, maybe you should to
clean out, don't hide it further away
clean out and let the emptiness fade

did you feel abandoned? don’t give up all that we’ve got
or we’ll catapult into extinction, and waste our shot

clean out the past from my spare room
clean out, maybe you should to
scream out, do any feelings remain
scream out, what have you got to say

I'm completely lost but I've accepted the cause
and I'm starting over again
(don't tell me this is the end)
and if you ever come back I know the bond that we have
isn't strong enough to hold you in place
don't tell me this is the end

did you feel abandoned? I guess it’s all I deserve
I should have known that leaving home would have caused all this hurt
now we've both been abandoned
Track Name: Door Prize
I’ve wasted my life

and I just can’t remember how I ended up here but I ended up here

I think the last time I ever really felt save was twenty years ago with him
at the Queens Park drive-in

when I come home tonight
I might lose control and explode before I realise

I wanted children once
and I hoped that we could remain in love
if the bruises don't get worse it can't hurt

but my door prize tonight
is a cut from a bottle locked in a room without a light
my door prize tonight
involves keeping real still when he's coming inside
my door prize tonight
is a good few hours of being scared for my life
my door prize tonight
means hating myself just to survive
Track Name: The End's In Sight
you look at me with a smiling face
we made the most of the last few days
but I can’t let this feeling shake, soon it will be over

I drove you up to Serpentine, we made the most of the autumn light
a few months I’ll be off your mind, expired and retired

but here we stand the end’s in sight
and I just can’t believe we might never reunite

when we depart I’ll grow again but my heart will stay the same
as my feelings hurricane a storm builds in my head

I wanna tell you that I feel all these regrets that I’ve concealed
I’m hoping you might tell me first yeah that’s my curse

here we stand the end’s in sight
and I just can’t believe that we might never reunite
here we stand the end’s in sight
and I just can’t believe that we might never reunite

you're telling me it's gonna be alright
and I just can't believe that we might never reunite
Track Name: Fake Life
I could never be the guy I wanna be
I find it easier fake life and live wrong

I hardly know the girl standing next to me
I find it easier to fake life and live wrong

I don't wanna take responsibility
I find it easier to fake life and live wrong
I'll marry you but I won't stop eating meat
I find it easier to fake life and live wrong

silk ties and perfect lies, I'm gonna fall down, fall down
white lines and constant highs, I'm gonna fall down, fall down

I don't wanna take responsibility

at tmes when I'm alone I think that I could change
the chances I have blown I'll never have again

take a seat in my four wheel drive, I got surround sound all around
I never try it's all contrived, I got surround sound all around
look at me before I fade in the light, I'm gonna fall down, fall down
with more cash than I have time, I'm gonna fall down, fall down

I hardly know the girl
I've got to fake the life
Track Name: Blankets
a memory, I can’t see, through this labrynth of tears and sceams
I’m the shield between my father’s hands and my family
and the blankets came out that summer

sleeping in is all I do, my legs and arms are aching
my body’s all consumed
I can’t expect my friends to understand what I don’t
it’s got to end soon
and the blankets came out that summer

I didn’t mean all of the awful things I said
I didn’t want to take your dream and tear it all to shreds
I didn’t want to hurt you but darling I had to
to save myself
so the blankets came out that summer
Track Name: Burnt Out
can you even comprehend, the way that this could have ended
I’m sorry but it’s not enough, you don’t hear a sound
I’m sorry but it’s not enough, the light is burning out

what have you got to say, I'm in desperation for your attention

I’m sorry but it’s not enough, you don’t hear a sound
I’m sorry but it’s not enough, the light is burning out

when I push you away, we never mention, your reaction
I can tell you're frustrated, as every word is overstated

every time that you get angry it makes me feel intimidated
I can't respond I'm freezing from the cold
the fire’s dying out without you, I'm so dull you’ll never find me
will you change and will I ever know
Every time that you get angry I feel so damn intimidated
and chips a piece of you out of my soul

every time we pick apart it, not enough when we go started
