about

This is the first installment in an ongoing project we like to call “Never is a long time.” We aim to show you, dear listener, our progression over the coming year. A development of sorts, in which you will be a part.
It is mid 2011 and these two songs are a snapshot of our lives at this very moment.

Track Name: The Refuser
why, why, you rip me up and cut me down? oh why, why we chew it up but not spit it out... oh why…?
is this what i’m waiting for, the pieces picked up for me off the floor? when i want to scream but I never can! trapped in a shell like a deaf and blind man!
i have become the great refuser!
i have become a typical lie!
so why, why, you rip me up and cut me down. oh why, why we chew it up but not spit it out! oh why…?
so is this what we’ve been waiting for? tongue in cheek with my jaw on the floor. suffering some dead air!
aphasia, discrete and sudden defeat!
comin’ to grip with words unsaid, buzzing around inside my head, they stab and they stab, ya gifted gab.
seven hundred ‘n’ eighty three. learning again just how to speak my mind every time... again...
so why, why, you rip me up and cut me down. oh why, why we chew it up but not spit it out! oh why…?
Track Name: 783
ya got that disease. you do anything you can to please and we think it’s sickening… that your head it is slipping down around the four corners where you were found.
ya made up your bed, we never slept in it. i’m calling you up again.
for fifteen hundred days you were underwater when all you ever saw was chaos and disorder. there are seven hundred and eighty three reasons why i’m losing my mind!
and you rip flesh from bone, picking the pieces out one by one. stoned to death; we left you in the mess you made.
you’re so far, so far apart. I gotta pick up my face off the floor when all that surrounds me keeps my head in check.
fifteen hundred days, you were underwater when all you ever saw was chaos and disorder. there are seven hundred and eighty three reasons why i’m losing my mind!
seven days, you assured me i’d be fine, you’d applaud me. plot a course with my heart, the barricades that kept us apart!
take me away, far removed from here. so very far away. so rip flesh from bone and all of this is mine, none of this is your own.
