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.

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
Track Name: Break The Casino
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
