We thought we'd try something new, so we got together for a long weekend at a ranch out in Murrumbateman and self-produced this little 3 track project. Our writing and recording style was totally different to all our other records and demos but extremely collaborative. We recorded onto Ableton and used a bunch of digital drum samples, as well as recorded our own live drums and sampled them in. We hope you enjoy it.

Thanks to Ben D, Tony, Jennie, L.A Noire, Ruby and her wonderful butter beer, Putri and the McMurray clan, Alexandra Hoss and lastly thanks to Digby for telling us we could definitely borrow his amp two days before and then not letting us. Classic Digby!

Track Name: Pointless Exercise
I just wanna remind you
There's no more to your life.
And everything that you'll ever do
Is a pointless exercise.
No plans of validity for the future can be made

And then we started to believe... that...

The whole world is an artifact
And we have to get back at nature
But we forget we're not birds who perch on a tree
We are the leaves!
I'm here to help you understand the fundamentals but it's mental so it cannot be show

Opposites attract
In fact, they're rarely on their own
Now that we've buried our finest virtues
We say it's wrong to dig up bones

Am I rooted to all of this?
Am I rooted to all of this?

If this is all you've ever wanted
This is all you'll ever need.
If this is all you've ever wanted
This is all you'll ever need.

If you hold on too tight
To the railing
When you're failing
You might lose your grip and
Hold on too tight
to the railing
When you're failing
You might lose your grip and slip.
Track Name: Poignant Existence
Why'd you have to go and throw it all away?
Old and weary
No friends to be friends with no more.
You will escape from now, my love.
And we can find our cloud above.
Sacred vows in this town
And you can hang your coat and happily drown.
Wasting time.

I feel in love with the concept
And I could never fall in love again
Your room was full of itself now
But it never learned to love itself somehow.

In my dreams, there are homeless people running this scene.
In my life we're just steam engines trying to let off some steam.

I met a man named Giuseppe
He was a very good friend he never said a single word against me.
We fished for brim in the moonlight
And then we'd share our childhood memories and push them back into the sea.

In my dreams, there are homeless people running this scene.
In my life we're just steam engines trying to let off some steam.

Just being all alone in my thoughts now
It's been so long since I've been taught now
How to be
How to be
It's been so long since I've been taught now
Taught now.
Track Name: Poison Ivy
I would be your friend if I could.

(rap)
Watch me turning in
As it burns my skin
Haven’t really seen, but we’ve heard of him
That's a deaf mute from a test tube
Baby born premature, staying in the guest room
And later on it becomes your friend
Wondering what you've gone and done again
Repeat the question, can you come again?
The call of wilderbeasts is asking you to run with them
It’s all worthless in the fucking end.

Now the pitter patter
Of the people sitting backwards
Got us wondering if it didn't matter
Kitty cats and silly rappers, slick with madness
Gonna give the package
Cover up the missing factor
It was tragic.
Eating anything it if its dipped in batter
To get a little fatter
Sick of Maccas
Stricken by a bit of magic
Little boxes made of ticky tacky
Stop believing all the jibber jabber

'Cause it's true
Everything that you do
Is imperfect in a way that's simply isn't you

Under this poison ivy household
Burning the furnace of my dreams
I was giving candy to a stranger
And it's all exactly as it seems

I share my hand with my body
You are my hand and my body.

Under this poison Ivy household

All eyes on you
In my room
All eyes on you
In my room
