about

A song for anyone that's ever lived in a dead-end town surrounded by angry people who are frustrated by their lives.

lyrics

If the wind should change direction right now
Judging by the facial expressions 'round here
We'd all turn to stone
And if you stick around this town too long
The fumes that you breathe in
Will choke your soul

Why do we do this?
Stick around a one horse town
When all the dog foods been put down
They'd have us believe that this is some concrete Eden
The devil made work for idle mums
And watch out here their offspring comes

Well you've never fallen far enough
To see your dreams truly bit the dust
This country's run by the kind of men that put coal in stockings
And claim they're handing out diamonds in the rough

Why do we do this?
Stick around a one horse town
When all the dog food's been put down
They'd have us believe that this is some concrete Eden
The devil made work for idle thumbs
And watch out we're coming undone

Why do we do this?
Stick around a one horse town
When all the dog food's been put down
They'd have us believe that this is some concrete Eden
The devil made work for idle mums
And watch out here they come.

about

Jacob de Berker London, UK

Itchy footed, heart-on-sleeve troubadour originally from the south west of england and now living in Amsterdam. My songs are as honest as I can make them and couple my love of lyrics with guitar, banjo and more recently ukelele.

Here's some lovely words about the EP:
