lyrics

He carves his name into the wood
Next to words he read in a book about thunderclouds
Mr man misunderstands
She won't fight for a cause that can't land decent bands

The other kids have got it all
Winning smiles penchants for passing yards and business cards
He's just a little bit too tall
For his teenage sister's jeans to fit
And they know fit

Dumbstruck blood on his lips
Holds his pride like a crucifix
Apotheosis or psychosis
The trip back is just a myth
Still waiting for sound
Afraid of losing count
She looks on as they taunt and toss his
Pack into the pond and pin him to the ground

Burning trash behind the mall
Meg and John debate the merits of myopia
He's fine with failing by default
Lesson one never tell anything to anyone

Come on take a deep breath
Shut your mouth and just pretend
Make something out of nothing and hold to it

For now it works like this
The etiquette of taking shit
Soon we'll be old enough to hold a finger in the air
When told there's nothing to it

Tell me is this real
This nothingness I feel
It's not your fault it's not your fault
Still all good sinners kneel

No one wants to hear
The gears behind the mirror
This fear of disappearing behind a cheap veneer of years
We thought we left behind

He carves his name into the wood
Next to words he read in a book about thunderclouds
On a hill they wait for the sound
From a basement losing count
Losing count losing count losing count losing count losing count

"Smart songwriting and stylish charm throughout" - ObscureSound. "The melodies are gorgeous, the singing sounds like the tune of a man facing execution and it’s all just too pretty for such a cold and heartless world" - Alt77. Neither Here Nor There is an exploration of alienation, a moving portrait of the struggle to connect to other humans in the ways we are supposed to or told we should. ... more
