/i/ Melodic hardcore with post-rock influences. I keep listening to this EP occasionally from the day I bought it, maybe it's one and half years ago. They make my heart beat stronger so I need this when I'm weakened by surroundings. One of top punk/hardcore releases of 10's, isn't it? Favorite track: In Retrospect.

Track Name: All I Do Is Try To Exist
I've been here before
I just can't think when
Lately I'm finding it so goddamn hard to pretend
That I'll find a place where I belong
So I'll write all down and sing about it in these songs
I can see the tunnel
But I can't see the light
It doesn't matter if you are with me
Coz I know we'll be, we'll be alright
All I do is try to exist and see life through this eclipse
All that I do is try to exist and see the light through this fucking eclipse
Track Name: Halfway There
We used to spend most our days sat in my car in the rain waiting on the weather to change it always stayed the same I bet you never thought we'd get this far never at the expense of who we are I still don't understand how we made it here after the last six years this is a time a bomb and it's ready to blow you better hold on still got a whole lot to show but the question is would you give it up if things could be redone
Get up get up you're only halfway there get up get up And we'll go to where they'll never find you So leave everything behind you And don't ever turn back I know that things will never be the same People move on and your friends will change but Get up, get up you're only halfway there I guess we just feel stuck Coz we're tired and we've had enough And it would be so easy to roll over and just give up
Looking back on the last six years And all the memories that brought us up to here Singing songs about stopping the clocks Or trying to write about the last fucking break up I still remember everyday I wouldn't do anything any other way So here's to all those failed bands And here's to our future plans
Get up, get up you're only halfway there. I know that things will never be the same people move on and your friends will change Get up, get up you're only hallway there Get up, get up and we'll go to where they'll never find us We'll leave everyone behind us And never turn back We're never turning back.
Track Name: Light Them Up
When life has no path
Or the road ahead is dark
When the choices we make
Are bound with past mistakes
When your chest feels heavy
And the glass is half empty
And all wrong seem tempting
Remember who you are

We're not just burn outs
Or empty shells
Trying our best to come to terms with ourselves
So please take notice
And mark the date
I've still got a few lines left to sing
Before its all too late

Never give in
Don't ever give up
If someone tells you that you're not good enough
Don't even pretend that you give a fuck
Just do what you do and you'll light them all up
Don't ever give in
Don't ever give up
If someone tells you that you're not good enough
Don't even pretend that you give a fuck
Just do what you do and light them all up
Just do what you do and light them up
Track Name: Foresight
I should have seen from the outset
But I guess that I was blinded by my own surrounding
Well it seems that I can't believe how far I'd go
Just to keep all this from you
But all my days, they just seem to bleed into one
I can't remember how this ends
How am I to pay for your mistakes?
I guess I should of seen this through
I always knew I couldn't count on you
Well then I guess I misjudged myself
Sometimes I wish I was someone else
Sometimes I wish I was someone else
How was I supposed to notice?
I need a change of course
I'm running out of oxygen,
And I'm sick of always falling short
How am I supposed to be
The best that I can be
If the only person in my way is always gonna be me
And I know we have our doubts
And we've got to figure all of this out
But this is more than just a passing change
This is how it should be
So is somebody gonna guide me home?
I don't think I can do this on my own
How am I to pay for your mistakes
I guess I should of seen this through
I always knew I couldn't count on you
Well then I guess I misjudged myself
Sometimes I wish I was someone else
I guess I should have seen this
That you're the only person in my way
When life has no path
Or the road ahead is dark
When the choices we make
Are doused in past mistakes
When your chest feels heavy
And the glass is half empty
And all wrongs seem tempting
Remember who you are

Tired at best
And frayed at the seams
If ignorance is really bliss
Then why is this hard to believe
I'll try not to count down the days
Wanting and waiting for this to go away
Just run away
And take life by the throat
Never look back
And try hard not choke
Believe in yourself and all you could be
Coz there's no point to life if you're living it down on your knees

Countdown the days
(And wait for this to go away)
Track Name: In Retrospect
Despite everything you might of heard
I'm still trying to figure out
The right words
To organise the thoughts that cloud my head
To not leave you in pieces feeling like you've been misled
And she said
We're burning bridges at the thought, trying hard to be ignored
Should have seen the warning signs. This isn't your fault, it was mine. Spent at least three years counting the days wanting the feeling to just go away, take it away, because I can't stay" I guess that we'll just find another way
I'll find another way
All that I do is try to exist and see the light through this eclipse
Oh how I try
Trying hard to comprehend the thoughts that travel through our heads
I hope that I can understand this life I've lived.
In retrospect
All I have is all I am.
We're burning bridges at the thought
Trying hard to be ignored
If all I have is all I am
Why do I even give a damn?
All that I do is try to exist and see the light through this eclipse
You're all I am
