I'm incredibly happy that I've finally managed to finish this EP. It's been a painfully long, frustrating process at times, but I'm over the moon with how it's turned out. Please buy and share the EP if you've enjoyed listening to it! More will follow over the next few months and years if you do :)

Track Name: Omon Echesp 3
Like the beach - whose sands calm and burn subjectively - we must suffer the burden of tide.

One may believe their life is on course to paradise, or takes shape before them.

Maybe they're wrong.

Others may believe they are losing their grip on the treasure they held this time last iteration, be it season, year, or calendar month.

Maybe they're right.

Somebody may feel they deserve more, or in fact less, and cloud what they really control.

Maybe they're falling.

Left is right, and right is wrong, should you believe the angel. But the angel is falling.

And so are we.
Track Name: By Method
Attention
This is your captain speaking
Could you please deposit
All your troubles, worries and woes
In the following carriages
Thank you

Leave it in the palm of your hand
Or in the cosmic wave
(Or in the cosmic wave)

Fear not, my child
You will be integrated soon
Oddities become normalities
You are dead to us now

This is my way of solution
Too many ceilings to navigate by
(By) method, (by) insurance
This is my way of reaction
So funny, such boundless wit
Leave it in the palm of your-
Track Name: Angry People
Sit down
Don't stand up again
Oh Mr Speaker, Mr Speaker
Let me tell you a story

The economy's strong and stable
The economy's strong and stable
But there's a river of angry people
There is a river of angry people

Start a movement
Spur of the moment
Lose your tempo, lose your temper
You tell us he's useless but he seems okay

We're malfunctioning
We are malfunctioning
We are going nowhere
We are going nowhere
We are a river of - angry people
We are a river of - angry people with angry questions

We are a river of - angry people
(Piece by piece, my retina detaches itself from my eye)
We are a river of - angry people, with angry questions
(Piece by piece, I watch and stare and I see the other goes blind)
We're malfunctioning
(Piece by piece, my retina detaches itself from my eye)
We are going nowhere
(Piece by piece, I watch and stare and I see the other goes blind)

Track Name: Despite Everything
Wash it out
Wash it out of me
Bleaching, screeching
Wash it out
Cleanse your blood, said she
Dreaming lucidly

---

A louder noise
Project or you won't be heard
Allow the computer, allow access
Work until you're sick

Improvise or recite
Don't know which to choose
You've learnt your scriptures, you've learnt your tables
Bottle it on the day

Despite everything
Despite everything

And we're still standing - standing up
And we're still standing - standing apart
And as the water rises, and the tide starts to turn
You shrug your shoulders in disbelief

Despite everything
Despite everything
Despite everything
They'll reach for you

Despite everything
Despite everything

We teach to you
Track Name: Confide In Me
Confide in me
Confide your darkest secrets
Don't let it be

Confide in me
Your hopes and expectations
Don't let it free, again

Confide in me
Tell me your darkest secrets
Don't let them free, again

Confide in me
Your blood is blue - your blood, it's running
Your arteries are veins

Confide in me

Confide in me
Unleash hell as if that's what you wanted
Don't let it be

Confide in me
As if that's all I've ever wanted
Don't let it be, this time
Track Name: Independence Day
Today
Is the greatest day
Today is our independence day
Today is our independence day
Hold on
Hold on

Today
Is the greatest day
Today is our independence day
Today is our independence day
Hold on
