This is the September installment of our 2016 singles series. This is song is significantly more melodic than anything we've done so far. Mega Jawbox vibes.


You build your life and make your big plans
but there's no accounting for all its demands.
It takes just one slip, a mammoth sized hit
To change the story.

Hold my head under and don't let me go
I've done some things that no man should ever know
Hold my head under and fill up my lungs
Until there's no life left in me so would you...

Hold my under and don't let me go
I've done many things that no man should ever know
Hold my head under and fill up my lungs
And drown these sorrows.

I hurt from the fall and it's taken me no time to feel nothing at all
It's under my skin; the dirt, the regret, the fact, the fiction.

I apologise for what I've done, but I can't see the light at the end of this.
The push and the pull: you can't deny the irony.

In 2016 we released a song a month. In 2017 we released em all on limited edition cassette and titled it 'Death By Inches', because that's what it's like when you release a song a month for a year.
