  1. Download Play Fox And The Hound

    Lyrics

    Turns out I did it wrong
    Chased after the moment before it was gone

    Missed out on what went down
    Split off and started chasing what was going around

    Fox and the hound

    Here's the question:
    How do you know?
    How am I supposed to know?

    Got tired of making face
    staying home and being scared that I was wrong

    Hung up my gown to dry
    Enjoyed the breeze
    but that don't mean I'm sticking around

    Fox and the hound

    Here's the question:
    How do you know?
    How am I supposed to know?

    Lost track of where the magic went
    Caught the trail but I lost the scent
    and it's a long road running

    Lost track of where the magic went
    How am I supposed to know
    when it's something lost
    that I might not ever have found?

    Fox and the hound

    Here's the question:
    How do you know?
    How am I supposed to know?

  2. Download Play Split It Up The Middle

    Lyrics

    Every purchase you make
    is eighty units or more
    Every drink is a shot
    and every woman a whore

    And a dollar for every time
    Your wallet gets hot
    Is donated to the national trust
    Where it continues to rot

    And when I build my bridge
    with the rubble that I scrounge
    You bring me to my knees and say
    It's alright to take what you haven't found

    Every breath that you take
    A stench hanging the air
    Breathed in by the lungs of the others
    Like the others don't care

    When you split it up the middle
    You split it up the middle
    So everyone can see
    That you only take a little
    Making your mark on everyone, everywhere

    And when I build my bridge
    with the rubble that I scrounge
    You bring me to my knees and say
    It's alright to take what you haven't found

    It's cool
    Everybody makes mistakes
    But there's a time and a place
    To talk about the ones you've made

  3. Download Play Rich Man

    Lyrics

    Hide me in an alley
    Where a dollar and five
    Is worth waiting hours for
    There are several million people
    Who are willing to die
    For a shot at a little more

    So when should a worker bee return to his hive?
    When can a man make due on a dollar and five?

    Mind over matter
    Matter over meat
    I am no better than a beggar on the street

    I'm a rich man
    and I want to stay there
    Feeling the vibes of my name courted elsewhere
    A little more interest every day
    I am what I am because you see me this way
    I'm a rich man
    and I want to stay there

    I thrive on the spinning
    of the circle of chance
    and the deck of potential luck
    I'll take all my winnings
    but I'll never cash out
    There's a shot at another buck

    When should a man hold for a little more?
    When can a winner be pleased with his own score?

    Mental obstruction and physical peak
    I am just a runner on a winning streak

    I'm a rich man
    and I want to stay there
    Feeling the vibes of my name courted elsewhere
    A little more interest every day
    I am what I am because you see me this way
    I'm a rich man
    and I want to stay there

  4. Download Play Heavily Drugged

    Lyrics

    Once my steady temper was much short
    I'd get mad when people pushed me around
    Now I take a little potion to put things back in order
    I could(n't) care less what they about me now

    Once my little stomach was much bigger
    Back when my head of hair was thin and gray
    Thank God I'm no longer cursed with that disgusting figure
    My magic pill has made it go away

    She never loves me when she's calling my bluff
    I started somewhere but it's never enough
    If they call it a fix
    (and that's exactly what it is)
    Something must be broken

    When the weight of what I've done gets heavy
    And all I do is stare at the floor
    I take a little sunshine and infuse it with my blood
    Then I'm not a scumbag anymore

    She never loves me when she's calling my bluff
    I started somewhere but it's never enough
    If they call it a fix
    (and that's exactly what it is)
    Something must be broken

    I feel my legs growing out of the ground
    I feel the dust blowing out of my lungs
    I feel the nakedness of my body
    And the stiffness of my tongue

    I feel the heaviness of my feet
    And the world growing out of my reach
    I swear someday I'll quit this place
    And finally live as a king

Reviews

It mines some of the same screwball retro-surf sounds as Fullbloods' debut, The Perpetual Machine, but also mixes in some nice cokey '70s vibes
