about

The follow-up to their acclaimed debut album 'Widower', 'Childless' improves the clarity but keeps the cranked, ragged sheen that gave the first album its character.

Track Name: Dog Heaven
There's no escaping something's escaping you
Trails to the sky from holes that it's pouring through
Struggling because it's what you're supposed to do
Struggling with a mile of steel

Ah

All of your thoughts grown crystal, unchangeable
Hard coral branches fissuring through your skull
Trying to catch a signal from something real
Pressed up against a mile of steel

Ah

Trying to catch a signal from something real
Pressed up against a mile of steel

Ah
Track Name: Childless
Well the aim was alright
But you stepped to the side
Now you think of the price
And the great loss of life

Unaware of the engine till the pitch started changing
You’re already forgetting the whole point of the lesson
Track Name: They Have No Minds
Suffer and then die
Clutching hard to the side
Waiting out an upsurging inner tide
With a darting eye
And a mind
Howling
For another form of life

Gagged by the fright
That the air could ignite
From a spark from the clicking of your jaw
Sliding down the wall
In awe
At how they
They have no minds next door
