about

The "Narrow Escape Singles" are three very different songs that we have melded together into one release to capture where we are at this point in our lives and in this band. The release gets darker as it goes along, but we don't want to spoil anything for you. Give it a listen, and if you like it feel free to support us by purchasing the album!

All proceeds go towards helping us write more music. If you like what you hear here, find us on Facebook and Twitter and say hi! We love meeting new fans!

Track Name: Wrist Control
Here I am again
Feet pacing the floor, back and forth in circles
My brain is hooked on details
I'm a sucker who needs to sin
With a broken heart that just
Needs a stitch

I'm running out of excuses so fast
My knees are buckling it can't last
So lock the door and swallow the key
Just don't spit it back at me

How else could I survive?
Without a girl like you
To make me toss and turn all night
When I am lost you will find
That you can never forget me

How else could I survive?
Without a girl like you to make me toss and turn all night
When I am lost you will find
That you can never forget me
Yeah, you can't live without me

Here you are again
Feet gracing the ground, back and forh in my city
You're sayin' you really missed me
Well you're a junkie who needs a fix
And I'm the enabler, I keep takin' you in

Is there a single person in this room
Who's learned from their mistakes?
Cause I wanna learn from you
Pry me out of this hell

How else could I survive?
Without a girl like you
To make me toss and turn all night
When I am lost you will find
That you can never forget me

How else could I survive?
Without a girl like you
To make me toss and turn all night
When I am lost you will find
That you can never forget me
Yeah, you can't live without me

I'll swallow my tongue
I'll swallow my tongue
If you give me a second of your time

I'll swallow my tongue
I'll swallow my tongue
If you give me a second of your time

How else could I survive?
Without a girl like you
To make me toss and turn all night
When I am lost you will find
That you can never forget me

How else could I survive?
Without a girl like you
To make me toss and turn all night
When I am lost you will find
That you can never forget me
Yeah, you can't live without me
Track Name: Human Superglue
There goes the world
Falling on you again
There goes your head
Down in the rain

You've got the strength you need
It's buried deep
To pick yourself back up again

I know it takes a strength
That's hard to imagine
I know it takes you places
You never thought you'd go
Get to the top and then you know

Skies they changed quickly
From blue to grey
It's not at all what you had planed
These days it's hard to see

What's coming around the bend
Until it hits you, then you
Crumble down and shatter on the floor

I know it takes a strength
That's hard to imagine
I know it takes you places
You never thought you'd go
Get to the top and then you know

Then you know...

I know it takes some time
To feel you fall apart
And I can see
That you don't think you're strong enough

I know it hurts like hell
But I watched you fall apart
And I can see
That you've grown to be stronger now

Stronger now...

Push it to the top
Push it to the top
You know you've got to

It's a long way
You can taste the pain
It's a long way
On and on through the rain
Track Name: Easy Way Out
Cut corners with a knife so dull
It's leaving holes within your soul
His flesh and blood is cookie cut
From stale bread left in the cold

Like eyes that drip like empty coals
And shatter melting on your toes
It's over, only you can reconcile
The space and time that flows....

You're losing control
Don't lose control

Your muscles take you for a ride
So keep your eyes on the terrain
The rust and rubber cannot hold you
For that much longer

Fold your arms under the sheets
You cling to so tightly
I know the fabric's soft but it won't be
For very long

It's losing its touch
You're losing your touch

You can't trust your tongue
Even if it doesn't fall for anyone
I clicked off the safety on my gun
Cause darling I don't shoot at just anyone
You're losing touch

Claw at my skin with broken nails
Sink deep, I can almost hear you smile
The more it hurts the more I know you
Just want to feel close

I fall to the floor like an empty shell
I'm spent only you can load me now
Your fingers wrap around my skull
And pull me into your mold

We're losing control
We're losing our souls

You can't trust your tongue
Even if it doesn't fall for anyone
I clicked off the safety on my gun
Cause darling I don't shoot at just anyone
You're losing touch
