Low 04:37
We're so low And you're so strong We're so low You fix everyone And it tears me apart Turn my Hats around Her frown upside down We're so low And you're so strong We're so low You fix everyone And it tears me apart Turn my Hats around Her frown upside down We're so low And you're so strong
2.
The words of an oracle Measured and weighed Cost of your exit The price if you stay I buried a memory On which we lay The grave of a decoy That led me astray And it's unsettling Out of the contours All up in lights A slight in the incline My only device Semi professional At breaking you heart Got lost in the mire Go back to the start And it's unsettling still We salvage order from the chaos The universal way With nothing that lacks and nothing of luxury Just the promise of a better day
3.
Everything, and I mean everything Stops with one look from your eyes All of us, every one of us Goes up, up, up and away to the skies Oh where should I go, what should I say and who is watching us Well there's love when you like Considerate, downright delicate Our hands, keep us close through the days Dreams we had Our like distant lands No hop, skip or jump out the way Past this pain All of us, every one of us Goes up, up, up and away to the skies Oh where should I go, what should I say and who is watching us
4.
Rest your head where it has landed In Greenholme's eves we'll lay, we're stranded And we'll run the whole route alone Through Iron Row's playing fields To the place that we called our home Sing fair thee well To the grounds where we once stood In a haze, a smoke Where the river bends no more Bat on ball and feet to leather To the Queen's to drink in shelter And we'll run the whole route alone Through Iron Row's playing fields To the place that we called our home Sing fair thee well To the grounds where we once stood In a haze, a smoke Where the river bends no more

about

A Genuine Freakshow are an artful blend of pop sensibility, icy soundscapes and blistering walls of noise. Their sound, while impressively focused, covers a range of musical staples, with the group letting influences from Mew to Sigur Ros and The National surface throughout. Originally planned to be part of a new album, the songs on "Where The River Bends" ended up being a complete story on their own, so the band decided to release these tracks as a special EP.
