about

In September 2011, we set out from our apartment in New York to record this EP in a tiny log cabin in Höör, Sweden. Our Gypsy Family came from Stockholm, Copenhagen and Dresden to join us and over five days we wrote, played, drank, ate, laughed and cried under the full moon as we made the album.

Recorded live and presented unmixed and unmastered.

From these broken hands.

Track Name: Prison
Father
I let you down
Mother
I let you down
Lover
I let them go
Covered
Six Foot below

I’ve been captured by Love
And if my lover cries
should I close my eyes
and Hope
that she’s been damaged enough

Father
I let you down
Mother
I let you down
Brother
I let them go
Smothered
Ten Years I know

I’ve been captured by Love
And if my lover cries
should I close my eyes
and Hope
that she’s been damaged enough
Track Name: Southside
There's a storm that's breaking
without a sound
in a Southside room
and the walls are shaking
as I come down
in a dead quiet mood

And when I'm knocked out
you pick me up and we fight another round
and if I'm not mistaken
we've gone to ground
in a red, white blue.

Is there so much aching
in this town
that you can't move
or are you all just faking being down
are you afraid to bloom?

And when you put me down
I'll lift you up as you buy another round
and though I'm as naked as a sad clown
the joke's on You.
Track Name: Hands
Soul
can’t be bought
and later sold
when the pain gets old
for the price of gold

Love
always pays
the higher toll
when the pain gets old
on the darkest road

But there’s a light
in the midnight sky
if the hand you hold
has a heart of gold

Your life
is filled with
angels of light
though they never show
you ain’t on your own

Time
ain’t just made
for getting by
so that when you die
oh you don’t know why

But there’s a light
in the midnight sky
if the hand you hold
has a heart of gold
Track Name: Gypsy
It was barely last winter when I stood alone
by my burned out dreams on the side of a dusted road
and yeah I'd seen it comin' it's just that I lost my way
as I thumbed out west past the mountains and the open plains...

And who have I become now I don't love no one
Who have I become, I've tried to love everyone
but them lights ain't little stars
they're oncoming trains and they're aiming straight for my heart

I've been lighting fires like some signal to
a woman that might just take pity on a one night fool
but in the morning I'm running from those love love locked eyes
got to find my way down old habit roads and lonesome signs...
Track Name: Death Song
I want to be
in a room by the sea
with your hands
touching mine singing.
We're all going to die...

'cause it's no surprise
that we're all gonna die
but tonight, it's alright
'cause we're all gonna die!

I want to see
my whole family
with no tears in their eyes
and no long and sad goodbyes

'cause it's no surprise
that we're all gonna die
but tonight, it's alright
'cause we're all gonna die!

I want to believe in God
or at least that I if I try
will become a star in the sky...

'cause it's no surprise
that we're all gonna die
but tonight, it's alright
'cause we're all gonna die!
