This demo song was recorded live in Room 7 at Eiger Studios, Leeds, 28/1/17. It is the first take of the first song from our first ever jam together, and no riffs had been previously written, all on the fly, recorded into a phone. Tweaked a little, vocals added, ambient piece made afterwards at home. There are plenty more songs coming from this session...

Track Name: The Clock's Face Laughs In Yours
Father Time.
Constructed by humans to oppress and control
An unnecessary, restricting concept.

We become obsessed and unwell at its beckoning call
Rushing and dwelling and missing out on life.

Too many minds, are destroyed by their fears of age
The irony being that time slows you down.

It's us that defined it, whilst it contricts us.

If Time did not exist,
would we still exist?
If we did not exist,
would Time still exist?

Time slows you down.

It contradicts itself
every single day
Reducing us to ants
in a colony of loss
Looking back with regret
Dread the oncoming future
Twisting your brain
for no good reason

Hating yourself
Changing your plans
Bound by the rules
Choked by their hands
Telling yourself
you must be on time
Every second counts
but you don't.

Manage your time for your manager's gain
Give up your day and gather the pain
Money for old rope to hang yourself with
What good is this life if I can't even live?
