stu_h It's angry. It's sad. It's angsty. It's angry again. It's bloody brilliant!

Nick It's up there with Arrows' Modern Art and Politics or The Weakerthans' Reconstruction Site as one of my favourite records of all time. It's pretty good. Not shit.
Nostro

Nostro Interesting blend of 'golden era' grunge, which appears to have influenced this Brisbane band heavily, along with voice-overs & a punk type ethos. Favorite track: Somewhere Buried in there is the Sound of Separation.
Brad

Brad It is brutal..ly honest and echoes their live performances, smothering crisp ambient hooks into your ear canal...mmmmm Favorite track: Understanding Human Architecture.
Adam Werynski

Adam Werynski Well thought out, well produced, and just delves into deep music. Favorite track: Minimalism as an Art Form.

And if we’re just stories If we’re just stars up in the sky Mouths on our faces To make sure the wrong words come out right To make sure the wrong words Come out That’s when she said (whoa) She Said (whoa) And she said And if I could stop the world Take us back to When we were holding hands And everything felt simple And if I could stop the world Take us back to When we has guns in hands And everything felt simple (whoa) And if I could stop the world On and on

Is there anybody out there Can you even hear me (we’re the ones) The Ones That we’ve forgotten (we’re the ones) and the ones that we have found Would You even listen As our voices to turn to vapour And our bodies burn to Ashes In the whitest of white hallways We’re the ones you left behind As our voices to turn to vapour And our bodies burn to Ashes In the whitest of white hallways A constant reminder (you are everything) You are everything to me And someday, when I find here (She’ll mean everything) She’ll mean everything to me We’ve been playing fools for ages Writing down the things we’ll miss On forgotten pages And I wish that we could see Just what the end will be But I can only promise you this I can only (promise you this) If I could take one thing with me I promised I would take you with me And If I could take one thing with me Well I promised i would take you with me And I hope you’ll never see The same white walls as me The same white walls Everything i do, I do for for you I would kill for you And die in silence And I could forever crash into the sun We're the ones you left behind

And if you don’t believe me Never, never meant Anything she ever said Never, never meant Anything she ever said And if you don’t believe me (it’s written in the sand) You’ve drawn a line You don’t know where to stand This new found trust Means everything everything And if you don’t believe me Believe me!

Every breath and every bone I'm sinking like a stone There's truth to believe There's water on the leaves As small as it seems It's everything And I don't need a god To see the good in everything If we just find ourselves We'd be the first to love Not based on the word of someone else

(This song originally by Brisbane band, Iron On) Making small paper things with you Is just about the only thing that I can think of But that counts for something So I'll sit sit down and think twice as hard about Why I don't quite know enough about this one This time around If I could turn your age around We could just sit down And you could tell me All the things you probably wanted to But I want to see if you can remember The times I tried to stick this together with More than tape With more than tape And I want to see if you will remember The inquiries you made about whether This was gonna last I can't seem to figure this place out When it rains, it comes down sideways I'm already under the covers Shaking about all these blunders That led us to sharing this room The funny this is is that we chose to Yeah, you and I, we chose to But I want to see if you can remember The times I tried to stick this together with More than tape With more than tape And I want to see if you will remember The inquiries you made about whether This was gonna last I'm clawing my way back up to the top But everywhere I turn I swear you are Always looking at me And I'm always looking at you But I want to see if you can remember Times I tried to stick you together with All my tape With all my tape I'll give you my book to get outta this place You name the time and date And I'll even let you name it I will even let you name it I'll give you my book to get outta this place You name the time and date And I'll even let you name it I will even let you name it It's always raining on me For god sake, stop looking at me It's always raining on me

As far as I’m aware It might as well be you and me And everyday day (we’re reminded) Of how quickly we came (and we’ll be forgotten) And the wind it blew my head away Left with echoes of the things you used to say…like… As far as I’m aware It might as well be you and me And just to be honest I was just being honest And I believe that were just passing trees Your life’s a passenger window And if all we need is just the air we breathe Two feet and a bended halo And if we leave To watch from a distance These scars won’t seem so bad you know But all I need is just you and me And we don’t go where your wind blows And everyday It takes a lot of commitment To bury yourself underwater It takes a lot
