Glass Eye 03:11
Leave your clothes by the door, Ophelia You don't need to go I'm alone and I need you to know Lie... like... Lie... like... Like the pain Like the pain in your glass eye Like the pain Like the pain in your glass eye Rolling backwards in denial Try, try Try, try with all your might Watch the flight Watch the flight of a million starlings Darting into a windowpane So freshly killed, their hearts are still quivering

You can come back I was wrong about you Form the words It's not enough to make them true Secrete a matrix of protective substances Secrete a matrix of protective substances Layers you use to spin your cold cocoon Second skin the safest place Outer wall to inner space Roll the stone back Till it crashes down atop Lift aloft the crushing weight that never drops Secrete a matrix of protective substances Secrete a matrix of protective substances Layers you use to spin your cold cocoon Second skin the safest place Outer wall to inner space Form the words to make them, make them true Time to spend to spin the shape of the cocoon. You can't come back because I was, I was, I was right. Outer wall to inner space, safest place. I was, I was, I was, I was right, right? I was right. I was, I was, I was, I was right, right? I was right. Layers you use to spin your cold cocoon Layers you use to spin your cold cocoon

about

DON'T FAIL TO LISTEN TO RED FORMAN's half of the split, on redforman.bandcamp.com.

We had so much fun touring with Red Forman last spring we decided we should do a collaborative split EP where each band guests on the other's tracks. Nearly a year later, this has finally happened!

Glass Eye features Dylan Campbell on acoustic guitar and vocals, while Secrete a Matrix includes Oliver Campbell's inimitable screams.

The Red Forman tracks were recorded by Aaron Clark. Jelly Leg includes backing vocals from Aaron Clark and Ben Spees.
