about

"The Last Thing You'd Expect" was about a year in the making. Our previous EP "Familiar Faces" was good, but didn't cut it. After a lot of software and hardware upgrades the three of us got together to record what we see as a huge accomplishment. The artwork and all the recording was done by us, in our bedrooms. We didn't feel the need to drop thousands of dollars on something that we could do just as well and with the band having complete creative control.

Track Name: The Clock
Your arms are stretched out like the hands of a clock
Tired and broken still missing a home
I have to cover my face
My expressions from you
It’s only a matter of time

This vacant sign is heavy around my neck
Glowing more brightly with every heart beat
I have to cover my eyes
My thoughts from you
There’s no more time left for us

Chorus
And those pretty photos you take
They don’t teach anyone anything

Both of my hands are broken for now
Judgment and reason have slipped beneath the cracks
I have to cover my mouth
My words from you
Time has given up on me

Chorus
Track Name: Familiar Faces
Chorus
Woah woah

Now all this resentment is killing me
I wonder when I will clear my name
And I need to leave and take all these faces with me
But it's these faces with their frowning eyes
That have been cutting every corner

Pre-Chorus
And I, I can't breathe

Chorus
Woah Woah

Now my bed never meant that much to me
Take it out and light the night sky
With its' burning memories of first times and sleepless nights
Everything that you don't do keeps my heart at bay
And these days are getting longer

Pre-Chorus
And I, I can't breathe

Chorus
Woah Woah
Track Name: The Space Between
So this is what it's like to breathe
Without your hands around my neck
You've been shoveling coal in the engine of my brain
But this ship is sinking
And we're all going down

You need to decide what is right
What all this will add up to
I'm staring to think that you'll forget me first
If I haven't already left it, left it all behind

Chorus
The space between is no long enough
And I'm pushing farther away
You stay still cause I'm never coming back
I refuse to see what could have been


So this is what it's like to breathe
Without your hands around my neck
You've been shoveling coal in the engine of my brain
But this ship is sinking
And we're all going down


Chorus
The space between is no long enough
And I'm pushing farther away
You stay still cause I'm never coming back
I refuse to see what could have been
