Apotemnophilia Words / Music C Rollason You always had sense of balance A certain uneasy grace Been missing the kindness that's been long overdue I want to be just like you. I've felt like this from childhood An alien ape displayed Been searching for someone to take away the part of me that not a part of me It's not a part of me So take me to a dark and tranquil place Take away the things that make me plain These things that I find so distasteful And turn me into something beautiful I've progressed so far so soon Don't want to pretend no more Drastic times mean drastic measures So I can be just like you. I've tried convential options A new way for mad they say I've calulated the risks v gains So a shot rings out that's long over due You've always had a sense of balance A certain awkward grace I'm shown the kindness that's be long overdue Now I'm just like you

Break The Casino Music / Lyrics G Lawton, I Packman Life is a gamble (with an) even chance at best Keep watching the dealer , ignore the rest Lift your eyes, the skies are golden Stakes are high, I'm close to folding I need to know the cards your holding out for Poker face, eyes as cold as ice Double or quits, with loaded dice You'll be a hero if you break the casino (but) they won't let you bet on double zero You'll be a hero if you save the bus fare home

Girl With Two Names (Acoustic) Music / Lyrics C Rollason The springtime rays across your face That first time glimpse of you I'll never be the same again My girl friend's an hundred miles away I know I should think of her but I think of you some more each day You are a paradox of beauty Your are the girl with two names. Lost my heart, but made me feel guilty You are TGW2N Never liked who you used to be Changed your name to be set free You are TGW2N October rain it sings your praise, Naked on your front room floor I'll never be the same again My best friends girl for just one week Been going through all my friends Just like another STD You are a paradox of beauty Your are the girl with two names. Stole my heart, but made me feel guilty You are TGW2N Never liked who you used to be Changed your name to be set free You are TGW2N The winter chills show in your gaze that last time glimpse of you I'll never be the same again My girl friends gone and you've moved on guilty conscience, tainting me Tell me, where did my life go so wrong You are a paradox of beauty Your are the girl with two names. Broke my heart, but made me feel guilty You are TGW2N Never liked who you used to be Changed your name to be set free You are TGW2N

Boeotia 03:38
Instrumental.

about

Originally recorded during a week off work in November 2005. The plan was to write and record 4 songs in a week.

Three of the four songs were finished. The fourth song was scrapped as E was asked to join the band.

Apotemnophila, is based on the documentary I watched once on a relatively disturbing topic. Look it up on google.

Break The Casino was written, by E and Red Star Radio guitarist Guy Lawson.

Break The Casino started life as a demo, E and Guy asked Chris to record for Red Star Radio, prior to the bands relocation away from Shropshire.

Girl With Two Names, was the first song Rollasoc wrote as the Hair Thieves in 2000 / 2001. (Though he had recorded Baited Breath previously as the Hair Thieves, that was written when he was at uni, in a band called Shallow.)

Boeotia is greek. Just liked the name. The aim was to write a song with no guitars in.
