All profits go to Bradley Lowery's Fight Against Neuroblastoma. ( Bradley Lowery is two years old and has stage four high risk neuroblastoma, which is an incredibly aggressive form of cancer. He is currently undergoing a final course of chemotherapy, but if this doesn't work, he needs £500,000 for a very new, special treatment. I have a young son, so Bradley's story got to me. The proceeds from this EP, however small, will go to Bradley's fundraising effort and will hopefully also help to raise awareness of this illness. If you can afford to pay more for the EP, even if it's 50p, please do.

Thank you.

I'm no good at bigging myself up, so here's some people who have:

“Everyone one of [the songs] astonished… powerful and swooping and fix you to the wall.” – Best Fanzine

“[...]she sings her guts out... Like early PJ Harvey, she weaves melody from melancholia in the most devastating of ways.” – KYEO

"A punk without an amp." - that Egdell fella who likes nowt.

Track Name: Hate This, Love You
It's tough giving directions
When you don't know where you're going.
And I don't know how I'll find you
When I don't know who you are.
So maybe I should find myself
And think a little while.
And not think of somebody else.

Looking at you now I see
A porcelain doll in glass
Has a face with more emotion than yours.
And looks happier to have me look at it.

But in that face of dull expression
There's one thing standing out.
The glisten of the big bright eyes
And maybe we should take advice
Off that young man who talks a lot of shit.

So you walk away and so will I
You walk away and so will I

And nothing more will be said today
And nothing more will be said again.
Nothing more will be said today
And nothing more will be said again.
Nothing more will be said today.
Nothing more will be said again
But will always be in my mind
And yours too, I think.
Track Name: One Day
Haunted by the ghosts
Of things I'll tell myself I should've done.
The barely-there faces,
Frowning down on what I might become.
But I will not join you,
So drink away my money while you can.
This person is dying,
Slowly but it's all going to plan.

For I have never felt so lonely
As I do when I'm near you,
But I was such a fool.
I look at you and stare right through.

One day I'll keep a secret
And hold my cards much closer to my chest.
One day I'll aim higher,
One day I'll grow up, then I'll be impressed.
Tortured by the memories
Of things I'll tell myself I could've done.
But I'm scared and I thought that I cared,
When all I really wanted was to run.

'Coz I'm a bad judge of character
And you're a fucking cartoon
But I am still a fool.
Mistakes will not be made again so soon.
Mistakes will not be made again with you.
Track Name: Waiting
Take me, I'm disposable,
Even for a day.
I am not the only one,
So throw me away.

Too much was given and taken away.
Skin cracks, my blood hurts, you don't know what else to say.
The slow beat, the brows meet as I work out my next move
Now I know I know nothing but waiting for you.

God knows why I put hope in it,
A broken mess.
Now every time you look at me
I feel underdressed.

Mirrors are covered to hide me from hate.
My eyes stream, my blood hurts, I feel I'd still wait.
I lay down on the floor, I don't know what to do,
Now I know I know nothing but wanting to know you.

I could have loved you.
Track Name: Depressing Pornography
It's freezing here,
The blame, it lies with me.
No warmth will come
From cradling my knees.
And, once again,
I'm trapped in my own mind
Between someone who doesn't want me
And someone I can't find.

So I'll drink to forget.
Then I'll say something stupid, wake up and remember why I shouldn't drink.
So I drink to forget.
I should drink somewhere else.

I'm drawn towards
A mirror of my own flaws.
One that could break at any moment.
One that does nothing but harm.
But I've got enough on my arm.

And as it does each week
The world is ending.
And it's my fault, her fault, his fault, your fault.

My fault for not being enough,
Her fault for suggesting I stare.
His fault for pushing me down.
You fault for being there.

So I think I'll forget,
Then I think about you and remember what it means if I'm over it
So I drink to forget.
So I drink to forget.
I'll drink to forget.
I'll drink to forget.
I'll drink to forget.
I don't think I'll forget.
