You, you try, you try to get by
You're never going to pull it off
You shouldn't even try
You're a wet cigarette
You're always second best
They're never going to give a shit about anybody but themselves
So you fight for them to realize
There's more to life
There's more to you
There's more than meets the eye
And when you're done, the battle's been won
You sit back, you smile
And this is what you hum, you hum
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh

Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh

(Years!) go by, the time it does fly, (Whoa oh oh)
Every single second is a moment in time, (Whoa oh oh)
That passes oh so quick, and it seems like nothing, (Whoa oh oh)
But when you're looking back, well it amounts to everything
(Whoa) I've got myself, I've got my friends, (Whoa oh oh)
I've got my little family, but that's not where it ends, (Whoa oh oh)
This one goes out to you, it goes out to everyone, (Whoa oh oh)
It's in the name of honesty because life has just begun
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh

Look around little brother can you tell me what you see?
You're a big boy now, so take responsibility
You never had it hard, well now it's getting tough
So you (whine! whine! whine!) and you say you've had enough
You say I'm full of shit, that I'm a hypocrite
I shouldn't talk when I can't take the advice that I give
Well maybe you're right, but open your eyes:
The main difference here is that I (try! try! try!)

Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh

Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh

(Talking)
One: Please describe the experience of making the new album
Making the record was not unlike shipping out peach pits
Two: What took so long to make it?
Did it take long? If so, it's because we're very busy. Bands make almost nothing from record
Sales, so we were out touring in order to pay rent. Plus some other reasons but we are keeping quiet
Three: What is the record exactly? As it is called Keasbey Nights but no-one knows yet
What the record contains
It's Keasbey Nights. We wanted to get it right for once. A lot of blood and sweat was put into the record
