Lyrics to some new songs…


Crushed under a weight
of varying opinion
the sentence stretches out to death inside a prison

Desperate for a God
we made one out of carbon
when you twist the knife it turns into a human
We made a decent story
But now it’s getting old
the narrative is stale, the characters are weak
Blame it on the blood and the weight of expectation
Drag me down the street, we’ll watch the execution
as children dart through legs of people who have gathered
to lynch another hero then make another Jesus
Tear down the mountains
Flatten out the earth
there’s nothing in the clouds, nothing in the clouds
No-one rises up
so no-one casts a shadow
everyone is safe, everyone is safe
The next one in the line, the next one in the line
Climb towards the light, Climb towards the light



Days that I’ve spent screaming
Would not articulate
The perfectly sad story that’s forming on your face
Your eyes are set to streaming
A frustrated refrain
Your anger put a song in me to give itself a voice


No, it isn’t fair and all you want is confirmation the world’s fucking shit sometimes and there’s no god out there. You can live your life without the guilt for making yourself happy before everybody else.


We all move along and now confirmation is all that you want…
Her confirmation is all that you want


Days that I’ve spent screaming
Would not articulate
The perfectly sad story that’s forming on your face
Your eyes are set to streaming
a frustrated refrain
Your anger put a song in me to give itself a voice


We all move along
We all move on

Shoot Out The Lights – June Tour 2011


I’m really pleased to update this blog with artwork and information about our forthcoming EP; Shoot Out The Lights.

The date scheduled for release is 30/05/11 and we’ll hit the road to promote it shortly afterwards.

Our label Beard of Bees have worked really hard putting a tour together and putting this out, they’ve also given everyone a sneak peak of SOTL on their soundcloud which you can listen to here…

Electrolyte Orchestra

Needless to say we’re all really, really keen to start playing some shows and I’m happy to say we don’t have to wait much longer… check out any of the below dates, we’d love to see you. Other bands for the SOTL tour will be announced soon. In the meantime watch this space as we all get over excited and start posting stupid shit & lyrics up here and also sexy merch that will be available at the shows. We’ll also keep a tour diary to remember what we’ve actually done.
