Hudson Jefferies Despite being "heavier" than their previous release (which is an *all time* album for me), this album still has the key elements that make EAB so damn good. Good quality musicianship combined with excellent vibes, songwriting and most of all a CONSISTENT MOOD. Please, Patrick, never stop pushing your voice to the limit, going high occasionally, and doing those runs, it's what keeps me coming back time and again. Get this damn album and blast the fkn thing. Favorite track: Delicate.

about

Self-titled Full Length Album from EricArthurBlair

We are born in the rain
To the life in the moss
With damp souls
And slippery hides
To taste the world
Momentarily

Under a veil of stars
A blanket of dirty atmosphere
Covers us all mother-like
While we sit for peaceful time
Feeling the turbulence
Of the continental plates
And the tickle of ant feet over
Our lichen faces

Soft wind through our eyes
Comforting whispers
Of the shore in our bones
Born gratefully to decompose
Adrift through the great ocean
Above our heads

Track Name: Star
- 01 - Star -

however lasting I once thought love was
pulling shadows from my reflections
I once held, I once felt
I was one with you
Track Name: Tomorrow Love Today
- 02 - Tomorrow Love Today -

It takes all, you've got
I'm sure, you're not
Going to make this any easier for me
Write our names along the lines of the tapestry

Broken down
So pick me up
Waiting for the bus all fucked up

And we're so afraid to change
Don't change

Please take this the wrong way
Tomorrow love today

I'm thinking everyone's a fake
Looking out and past the gate
And when the time comes, we'll be pushing on
Along the way

Lost mine, took yours
This time, I simply can't ignore
The way I feel when you're around
Am I the one who wears the crown

Broken down
So pick me up
Waiting for the bus all fucked up

And we're so afraid to change
Don't change

Please take this the wrong way
Tomorrow love today

I'm thinking everyone's a fake
But who even cares anyway
Track Name: Glow
- 03 - Glow -

There's something
I can't say right
So I tremble, in the back-light
Wearing the fear
Wishing you'd stay
But I can't complain
Just not today

And I just lost my temper so
(Take me away take me away)
And I just lost my temper
(Take me away take me away)

Watch what you take your time aside
Life's a mistake we all aim to hide
Locking eyes,
a smile that tries
To fake it's way to

A kiss goodbye
A tired lie

And I just lost my temper so
(Take me away take me away)
And I just lost my temper
(Take me away take me away)

I'm gonna drown in my debts
Treading through the distress
Until there's nothing left
But emptiness

That's how I've always been

Show me a new day
Glow like forever makes
Track Name: Save Up
- 04 - Save Up -

I was doing alright til my nervous breakdown
I was doing alright with money
And you know, I'm not the one to hold a grudge
But times get rough, times get rough

And I must say
And I must say
I disagree

Save me a single dollar so I can save up
Buy me a white collar
Save me, take me out of the shallow end
Save me a single dollar so I can save up
Buy me a white collar
Save me, put me into the deep, trust into me,
I'll find my way sooner or later

I was doing alright til you pulled me back under
I was doing alright I swear
But you know, just the right thing to say
And now I'm drowning in everything anyway

And I must say
And I must say
I disagree

Save me a single dollar so I can save up
Buy me a white collar
Save me, take me out of the shallow end
Save me a single dollar so I can save up
Buy me a white collar
Save me, put me into the deep, trust into me,
I'll find my way sooner or later

I don't have enough
I don't have enough saved for you
I don't have enough
I don't have enough saved for you

Save me a single dollar so I can save up
Buy me a white collar
Save me, take me out of the shallow end
Save me a single dollar so I can save up
Buy me a white collar
Save me, put me into the deep, trust into me
Save me a single dollar so I can save up
Buy me a white collar
Save me, put me into the deep, trust into me
I'll find my way sooner or later
Track Name: Cauterize
- 05 - Cauterize -

I woke to the sight of some
Inscription in my inner arm
contradicting years
I remember pieces of the puzzle fitting into place
At least I like to see it, I like to see it that way

We're just not the same
(I can feel pressure climbing out from underneath me)
We're just not the same
(I can feel my heart collapse inside my chest)

I can't keep the image
I just can't be kept
I was empty long before the bottle was
Keep your cigarettes and daydreams
Cause we're all sad and lonely
So I'll be one and only
Pour some whiskey in my coffee when you leave

I can't keep the image
I just can't be kept
I was empty long before the bottle was
I can't keep the image
I just can't be kept
I was empty long before the bottle was
Track Name: Delicate
- 06 - delicate -

Where's your sense of self
Did we lose it all when we were somewhere else

This is hard enough
Tangling spirits line me rough
You wore my edges down
When you were still around
No I don't need this
But fuck I have a weakness

You know it's never easy
You know it's never easy
You know it's never easy
I'll say that you can stay the night
You know it's never easy
But I can't pretend that it's alright

And when I finally set sail
You'll want nothing from me
But all the things you said
I still hear you in my head
I still smell you in my bed
And now we're all but memories
Sinking out at sea

I'm sure you'll find it suits us all
Loneliness for when you fall

Where you running off to now
If we could change I'd show you how
To build a bridge between your heart
And mind
Our bittersweet divorce will find us
Short of breath for what we left behind

You know it's never easy
You know it's never easy
You know it's never easy
I'll say that you can stay the night
You know it's never easy
But I can't pretend that it's alright

And when I finally set sail
You'll want nothing from me
But all the things I said
You'll still hear them in your head
And you'll still smell me in your bed
And we'll be all but memories
Sinking out at sea

This is getting heavy
I can't carry all the envy
Like you do
But I don't want to slip my
Feet into your shoes
Track Name: Tricky
- 07 - Tricky -

So tired of waiting around
All the things we resent
Buried somewhere underground
Now we're so complacent

I won't keep still
My heart half empty and
I'm all alone
I'm all alone here
You should have known
I would have made it clear

Free fall
From all you've grown to hate
It's not your fault
But it's far too late

It's gold under city lights
Can't wait up for August nights
Down the street from my nest
Last year's endless stress
Uneasy until we're both undressed

Broken like you wanted me to be

And I'm all alone
I'm all alone here
You should have known
I would have made it clear

Free fall
From all you've grown to hate
It's not your fault
But it's far too late

So leave me alone
I'm all alone here
No place to go
You don't already know

Leave me alone
I'm all alone here
I've been for so long
But you wouldn't know
You wouldn't know dear
Track Name: Night
- 08 - Night -

Night rolls in and you'd love to see him
Blankets you're lying underneath them
tired of the light beating on your secrets
cause you know that the world will see them
Yeah you know that the world will see them

Night rolls in playing with your feelings
Shadows they're sweeping up the ceiling
At night theirs a lot to believe in
But you're wondering if the world can see him like you
Oh can the world see him like you

(You drove me all night)
I'm still afraid of you
(You drove me all night)
Always afraid of you
(Give me a sign)
Give me a sign of forever more
I'm so tired I can barley sleep
Just give me your hand and take the night with me oh

Daylight breaks all the same you feel it
Can you even bare to conceal it
If he's all the light you need than
Calm the night that keeps you breathing please
I'll be the star you never see

Wrapped in your memories seizing
But dreams are all so pleasing
The sky is bright believe me
I'm unsure of what we will be

(You drove me all night)
I'm still afraid of you
(You drove me all night)
Always afraid of you
(Give me a sign)
Give me a sign of forever more
I'm so tired I can barley sleep
Just give me your hand and take the night with me oh I'm so tired I can barely sleep just
Give me your hand take the night with me oh

In light of all your secrets
Here tonight is where you see them
Every dream another sequence
Every night a place to keep them
Track Name: Look Up At The Ocean
- 09 - Look Up at the Ocean -

These are broken wings
The ones you stripped away
With every passing day
My heart just fades

Accents of blue underlining me and you

We'll never really learn to fly
But still attempt to take the sky
I've lost I've wept I never meant to
Harm you like I did but still I'm kept awake

So take the weight away
But please don't make me hate
Our lives are short you should know
I'm a real poor sport when it starts to snow

Accents of blue underlining me and you

We'll never really learn to fly
But still attempt to take the sky
I've lost I've wept I never meant to
Harm you like I did but still I'm kept awake

No one knows me like I do
No one sees me the way I want them to
I wish you knew me like I do
But you don't
Track Name: Burn
- 10 - Burn -

However lasting you once thought love was
Push away the light you claimed so dear
You once held, you once felt
You we're one with me
