Notes:

Originally recorded between January and summer 2006.

Shorewards. E had collected various spam emails over the years that contained random sentences. Chris concocted the lyrics from these.

The Mighty Fall features Cornish drummer / singer Tats Mcgee on vocals. The song was written one afternoon, when he was up visiting Rollasoc. This is possibly the only Hair Thieves song with live drums, which Tim recorded in Cornwall.

Baited Breath is the first ever song Rollasoc wrote, when he was in a band called Shallow whilst at university.

Track Name: Shorewards
Shorewards
Music / Lyrics Chris Rollason, I Packman

Running down Memory Lane
Feels like I've been here before
Undaunted by the empty village
Landlocked forever and more

I believe I have heard whispers
From the sofa on which I lay
But I feel like a megaton fugative
Caught up in the richochet

Chorus
As the Canteen Bridgroom flirts with regret
We shoplift the salesman
as we depart the boat with their property on board
I look shorewards

Blasted by the guillotine tenements
Nothing has a place of its own
Sinless like emancipated celebrities
The sociopaths harmonious psalm
Track Name: The Mighty Fall
The Mighty Fall
Music C Rollason T Mcgee, words Tats Mcgee

Spread the trails of fortune
We each can find the road
To build a new horizon
Find our place and ride the code

There's life within our dreams
We each can voice our views
Set them up to teach the weary
Change the spoils and write the truth

Oh how The Mighty Fall
The Mighty Fall
The Mighty Fall
The Mighty Fall

Bit by bit the way we change
Spread the truth and break our fall
We've all grown up, with how things are
But how things are just kills us all

Why are we fighting?
Why do we hate?
If we change opinions
It is never too late

Oh The Mighty Fall
How The Mighty Fall
The Mighty Fall
The Mighty Fall
Track Name: Baited Breath
Baited Breath
Music and Lyrics C Rollason

Dam the river of truth
The truth lies within not without
Stop the moment of truth
Am I guilty of the Ultimate Sin
I have no lingering Doubt
You criticise my intent
I hate myself, hate myself for my descent

Chorus
Rape my Mind
Bleed me Dry
Forward I tread, with Baited Breath

I changed to make you happy
Alienated myself from you
You made me so unhappy
and in the end you made me choose
I have no lingering doubt
I compromised my beliefs
I hate myself cos I deceived
Track Name: E Weird
Instrumental.
