about

The long awaited first release from Matthew Hitchcock and Martin Gear scuttles across themes of schadenfreude, resentment, hopelessness, hope, delusion, fading beauty, ageing and the uselessnes of blame.

An exploration of the things that remind us of other things. The smells that transport us. The sounds that invigorate us. The triggers and the holes we can't help but peer into once everything else has been used up.

Track Name: Used
I’ll never see you at school again
I’ll never see you in my life
You’re just a profile on the net
Locked ‘cause we’re not friends
And we never will be again

(If you had your time again...)
You used to be so pretty
You’re not like that anymore
So promising; blossoming, ripening
Just to leave me

And when I saw you
Years later down the line
Oh the cruelty of time!
You didn’t catch the eye of anyone
You just blended into space
Make-up thick upon your face

(If you had your time again...)
You used to be so pretty
You’re not like that anymore
So promising; blossoming, ripening
Just to leave me

You were once so sweet
The only girl for me
The only girl for me…

I’m not gonna lie
I’m happy ‘cause I
Had you in your prime

(If you had your time again...)
You used to be so pretty
You’re not like that anymore
So promising; blossoming, ripening
Just to leave me
Track Name: Monotone
Your touch keeps love
Hides discrace
Their blood binds us
Anyway
Anyway…

Don’t you ever fight it?
Do you just bend every time?
Trying to restart
Waiting for a part

You gave up a lot for the lifestyle, honey
You like what you’ve got, but you’re still not happy
An ocean from the sea
Someone that isn’t me

Don’t you deny it
There is still hope for this
Nothing worth having will ever come easy
And you can’t be everything, to everyone, all the time

I’m not putting words in your mouth
I’ll let you figure it out
If there’s a shadow of doubt who’s cast it?
(You pushed it over, now you want another)
Someone that isn’t me

Don’t you deny it
There is still hope for this
Nothing worth having will ever come easy
And you can’t be everything, to everyone, all the time
Track Name: Breathing
Left behind a seed
Come back to pastures burned
So long you struggled there
Your voice was never heard

The waiting did you in
Like standing in a queue
Where no one has to wait
And everyone gets served
Except for you

You’re still breathing air
You’re still breathing air

No angel’s gonna come down
And cradle you in their arms
And tell you it’s alright

When you’re waiting for the comedown
And you know it’s gonna hit hard
I’ll be at your side

Do you remember how they used to lie?
How they always had an alibi?
All the evidence would disappear
You’re so much better off away from here
