Lyrics

Today, I think I’ll change.
It’s too late.
But nobody said so…
Why didn’t they say so?

You’re forgetting what we have.
I’m forever looking back,
I need help?
Why didn’t you say so?

And I’m standing in this hole,
Because you’re not there at all.

You’re sadly beautiful,
Like all the best and the worst things.
Do you see me at all?
Do you know that I’d stand in your control?

Today you think I’ve changed.
Well it’s too late!
Why didn’t you say so?
Nobody said so!

So is this worth it?
Or am I wasting every breath I take?

‘Cause I’m standing in this hole,
Because you’re not there at all.
Yeah I’m out here on my own,
Because you’re not here at all!

You’re sadly beautiful,
Like all the best and the worst things.
Do you see me at all?
Do you know that I’d stand in your control?

Nobody said it wasn’t what you wanted!
I’m looking back,
I’m standing on my own,

‘Cause you’re not there,
But you were never what I needed!
And now I don’t care!

I’m out – I’m done with your control.

Effigy released 19 October 2016

At the time of writing (October 2017) the Effigy album on CD was only available in Japan from Amazon, HMV and Spotify.

We called the album ‘Effigy’ as it is a collection of songs that are roughly based around the same subject, An Effigy, meaning a roughly made model of a person that is made in order to be damaged or destroyed.

It is about having flaws whilst being created by others and trying to be their version of ‘perfect’ and as a result, damaging and destroying yourself.

We recorded half of these songs in The Motor Museum, Liverpool UK with Al Groves.

This amazing studio is home to many fantastic UK bands albums and EPs. Bands that have recorded here include Tribes, Two Door Cinema Club, Arctic Monkeys and the 1975 to name only a few!

It was an honour to work there with Al Groves.

The other half was recorded in Static Gallery, Liverpool.

After our producer’s computer with the only copy of ‘Anyway’, ‘Hold me under, ‘Dead’ and ‘Daisy chains’ on it was stolen in Dusseldorf airport (Germany) we lost all of our original work on these songs and had just 3 days to re-record them in some cold January…
