about

This EP was recorded and mixed in three studios, a bedroom and a kitchen over a year and a half ... periodically. We’ve chopped and changed, grown and shrunk and hopefully come out of the blender as better people and tastier musicians. Can’t Afford This Way Of Life tells the story of love, life, heartbreak and the indulgence of youth. Through lazy summer days and huddled winter nights it’s a record about the twinkle in your eyes through good times and bad. With too many loved ones to thank, we dedicate these songs to you. For always smiling at our shows, supporting our music and coming back time and time again. You have been the spark in our musical fire and hopefully this is only the beginning...

Track Name: Every Single Day
Every single day; shining back at me you are;
Just another grey shade amongst the milkyway
Wonder where you’d go; twinkle twinkle little star?
Where the wind would blow? I know you couldn’t run far cause

You / Want / Me / To / Make / You / Feel this way again.
You / Want / Me / To / Make / You

I really wanna, really wanna, really wanna,
really wanna, really wanna, really wanna feel again.
(repeated)

Well I just got this feeling (I really really really wanna feel again)
Well I just got this feeling (I really wanna feel again)
Well I just got this feeling (I really wanna feel again)
Well I just got this feeling (I really wanna feel again)

Every single day; shining back at me you are;
Just another grey shade amongst the milkyway
Wonder where you’d go; twinkle twinkle little star?
Where the wind would blow? I know you couldn’t run far…

The leaves blow from perth city down to heathrow
Free flow, through the ruptured sewers of my ego
If you want to keep up you should keep low
Hear no evil, can't promise I will see no
Seeds sewen, getting heavy like a kilo
We know we're not growing old, no Torino
And all our friends are placing bets at casinos
That we won't last. Fuck them like Cee-Lo

You / Want / Me / To / Make / You / Feel this way again
You / Want / Me / To / Make / You

I really wanna, really wanna, really wanna,
really wanna, really wanna, really wanna feel again.
(repeated)

Every single day; shining back at me you are;
Just another grey shade amongst the milkyway
Wonder where you’d go; twinkle twinkle little star?
Where the wind would blow? I know you couldn’t run far
Every single day; shining back at me you are;
Just another grey shade amongst the milkyway
Wonder where you’d go; twinkle twinkle little star?
Where the wind would blow? I know you couldn’t run far…
Track Name: Kick Back & Fight
Kick it back feel the track flying high hit the fan base // I don't taste this hatred in one place // I redesign my own made mind and still find all the people trying to climb to the top // I'm really looking for that win (no more), I begin before I've even seen the score // Nothing's here to steer me from the wall I sight, I don't fall the height, we just kick back and fight.

We just kick back and fight (repeated)

Kick back and fight, the progression of the night, essential confidentials and confessions on rewind // The time plus the place and the people make it right // Besides the lake we die and dry red cause the lazy eyes // Maybe my expectations are just crazy high amazing I never thought these days would die // To the naked eye a crazy guy experimental, who would of thought that these thoughts get sentimental? // Many mental men will find their purpose sit back and just settle // These times are kind of trying and the kick back isn't gentle // In general, I'm saying play hard and fuck the limit //It's just a synonym for rules and winning isn't in it //Sometimes I wish you were still here by my side, until the day you're mine I'm a kick back and fight.

So don't stop for the rhythm this beat is unforgiving // If you make an incision on the record that's spinning // I'll be grinning to your misfortune, that's right I wish for you the saddest best returns // You haven't earned your place in my face... You're a disgrace a waste of breath debacle // The good times, they make me sparkle but the sad times too are my desires for you.

So kick it back fill the track grow beneath your knees // It's all pleasure and please until you sing with me // I don't tease your breath away, take you to a better day, where we could be friends, and this could all be made up // I gave up; saved up // Now my life is weighed up by the dreams that you played up // It's all fair in love and war until the other person makes it oh so much more //Shut the door on your way out, adore the last shout and then silence (repent your sins now) // I don't have a god no more, I was left by the alter signing hymns from the cage floor // Times like these I live by peace but what if life could be what I see then we could dream // And oh my dreams they do flow deep, so deep I still can't sleep.

And so we kick back and fight even if it feels alright // The conversation quality's dependent on the wine // We poison ourselves because the future is so distant, or is it rebellion that gives it true and mystic? // True and this fits, blew it using this shit // Statistics grew up quick and through the distant // Journey, they learnt the reason for existance // I missed it and you too could do with some assistance // My sisters my brothers my parents and my lovers all love this because it reminds you of the others // People truly struggle yet they make it through the night // No matter how cold it is just kick back and fight...
Track Name: We Were Where The Heart Is
Packed your bags and left the town, yeah we were always running again // Always something else to do some place to go some way to make it true

We were where the heart is
And you will never find us
Yeah we were where the heart is
Across the seven ocean floors

Pick apart your problems with a shovel and a spade // A king of hearts depart this feeling lost amongst the grade // We've got to get down (get down) get deeper and down // This love is what we found for all the people underground

We were where the heart is
And you will never find us
Yeah we were where the heart is
Across the seven ocean floors

Journey's found it's way for us // Heading to the lands we never knew but always did discuss // And we would never fuss with all the problems we could face // Today's another day to play those problems to a race

We were where the heart is
and you will never find us
Yeah we were where the heart is
Across the seven ocean floors
Track Name: King
I can't quite complain when all these white picket fences are the same // Pick apart your problems and you'll find fame // How insane? We fly from place to place, just a game (a game) for the faceless // (In spaces) In spaces quite like this, there's nothing more true than a guy on a conquest // I must confess, if you haven't figured it out yet, life’s more than contest

Dive off the stage, fade to folklore // Shouts to my friends, I wish we spoke more // What we hope for, is just a smile and a dream and so forth // We play mario and have a ghost off // Hit the mushroom, speed through the exit, remember looking over hoping you were interested. Now days all I ever want is rest // Under hot lights every effort is my best, but F it // We take each session as a test, study every night so I never have to guess // New semester, dwelling on my past ways, days of the last year, raise up your glass // Jump climb up, here's a little toast we're the future of the city be prosperous and grow // Or phosphorous and glow, know it's our time to shine // Feel the beat through your knees them wrap around your spine.

Who would have thought I would stay on course // of course the beats neat, much love to NDORSE. Zen force made way through this numbskull // Drink into oblivion and sink until the fun's dull. Some friends lost ways in these hot days, prison bar maze, we will drink until the rot stays. Not saying I won't be there when you call, but just trying to do me, is taking everything and all.

Who would of thought that you could change the world?
Who would of thought that you could change the world?
Who would of thought that you could change the world?

Who would of thought you could change the world now? // When we all live in fake plastic houses // King of his own castle lost in his own mask // Till death do us part; living in his own past // Find away the pain, all the nothings of another day, another way to play these games I’ve made // (Again my stupid mind) another way through the soulless grind // To know the lost and lonely homeward bound // The lights will always bring the distant sound // And all the guilty pleasures sinning; there stood you cynically grinning // Clinically thinking, when the world was sinking // And we’re still driving over the cliff face // Loveless and lonely, together you owe me // Or out of disgrace, do I only?
Track Name: Dreams Do Come & Go
Dreams came home on thought ships // Enslaving minds with made up whips // And all that hits to make you crumble (it's another day) // And you must think we're crazy // This world has left me kind of hazy // It's all in another dream, another scene // I've seen you naked on the walls // Making love across the dusty floors //And you must think we're crazy // This world has left me kind of hazy

Dreams do come and go (repeated)

Dreams left the lonely night // Fading from the distant heights // And all the lights that burn the sky into another day // And you must think we're crazy // This world has left me kind of hazy // It's all in another dream, another scene // I've seen you naked on the walls // Making love across the distant shores // And you must think we're crazy // This world has left me kind of hazy

Dreams do come and go (repeated)
Track Name: Can't Afford This Way Of Life
I had a heart attack, but then we brought the beat back
And through the haze of the summer daze
I never thought that we'd need that
Sometimes they say, for all the times that we make way
Take a day, break away, rewind replay with a syntax

You gotta relax, you gotta relax, you gotta relax...


This is summer's anthem, it's summer's answer to winter where lights are lit up, social lives are splintered, nights are bitter. I hope you like this better, outdoor setting set up, esky full of bitter or whatever beer that you hit up. It's time to fill the fridge up, time to hit the bridge up, beaches, barbeques or gigs, wherever you get your kicks from. So here's a kiss from the mighty brow kids, you know we're down to party wherever the town is.

I can't afford this way of life
(repeat)

I had a heart attack, but then we brought the beat back
And all the people run around the town
Without their heads like they need that
Sometimes they say, for all the times that we make way
Take a day, break away, rewind replay with a syntax

You gotta relax, you gotta relax, you gotta relax...

I can't afford this way of life
(repeat)
