Recorded October 7th, 2012, the evening I wrote the first verse and chorus. Recorded with a single microphone in one take. Remastered May 2015.


Whatever it was for
It doesn't work anymore
What was the point of it, really?
To be the ruin of us, nearly

To take it out, and put it down
It was the best next step
What would we have done
If it all fell apart?


from From The Archives, track released May 29, 2015
