Exclusive track 'Instinct' from the same session as the "Ceasefire" EP. Previously unreleased.


It’s hard to take it,
one foot in front of the other
Seems such a big step,
I’m shaking in cold sweats and I’m dead standing

I’m not convinced that I’ve crawled down the right steps
I feel the dust in my teeth and as I grind my gums I start to believe

Kill every instinct there’s always another reason
To keep you eyes on a better out come
so keep your hands where I can see them

You can’t falter at the edge you better trust the equation
If you can’t find the answer then change the situation

You can’t take back what you say or undo the past
You can’t backtrack your convictions or stop your heart
But you can idolise what you truly despise
if you forget about your true intention

Hold back your reservation
Hold your indignation
