about

Rounded up into a room every Friday night for two years, three guys with a senseless expectation to put together an album, saturated in great amounts of influence.

Amongst bullshit and adversity comes ferris wheel,

We truly wish that you will enjoy at least one small part of it,

all our love

Track Name: Ferris Wheel
So do you think that often
Your lucky home's on fire
And all that they talk about
Is how the ferris wheel expired

Come up on common ground
Circle through half a century
The crippled years have spun around
And I’m losing all my memories

It's in the frightening downfall
Of how you try to hold composure
As you dance beyond forgiveness
Never wiser never older

It’s all that they talk about
And your not listening
Please don't shut down
Please keep spinning

It's coming down now I know
Don't you notice the cracks
And the man too scared to get on
Said there’s no going back

In the tension from the pile up
Led to turn the wrong direction
How he left the wheel to slow down
It was never the intention

Oh holy hell it’s not just yet
How forever so is the long descent
Just before you take the exit stairs
Will you take me round
Track Name: Gradient
The concrete and asphalt
Interstate, exit here

Look at all the details
The flora and fauna

We're flying through
The negative space

You'll know

We'll cut through your landscape
Not at all, no not at all
We"ll leave a gradient
From white to black, black to white
He recommended emirates

You'll know
Track Name: The Choreographer
The water's flowing on your best behaviour
Leaving only rust
And i know that we were only guessing
But it was pretty close

The choreographer
Has lost his mind
He's trying to do
The physically impossible
And he's so convinced
That they can pull it off

Well I think I've seen this before
And I might know what happens next
And we will hold our breath
"Kick it out of the park boys, we've got this"
And he had never been so happy to be alive

The choreographer
Has lost his mind
He's trying to do
The physically impossible
And he's so convinced
That they can pull it off

The choreographer
Has lost his mind
He's trying to do
The physically impossible
And he'd never been
So happy to be alive
Track Name: Holy Drone
It's a matter of meaning
it's as simple as mine
At least I have comfort
To fill in my time

Well I know I'll have good days
With dirt in my eyes
They won't be closed
I've already gone blind

Well I hope that she's pleasant
Do you think that she's kind
They'll always leave bruises
No time to unwind

Well maybe it starts with the truth
But I don't think it matters
To anyone

So now I'm a thin man
With a coiled black heart
You know as you've sat there
You know that it's dark

By the grace of all others
My advice does no good
We're all just beginning
No one knows how we should

Be thinking of feeling
Or taking our strides
There's no one to guess
When improvements come by

But I don't think it matters to you
But I don't think it matters

Don't wait for the noise
It's not waiting for you
Head to the seafloor
With the weights that you choose
Are you going out slowly
Are you sick to the brim
I guess that you're glad that you
Forgot how to swim

Bend it over and over
'Til your thoughts have no creases
It'll all just unfold
When you're no longer needed

By your wishes and clashes
And even yourself
Holy Drone's coming over
Wait for nobody else
Track Name: Figure Eights
Take a million, take a few
Well we can't be running around for nothing, buddy
And don't tell me
You've got nothing to give me now
Well we can't be running around for nothing, buddy

And from now on
You'll be skipping round in figure eights
And he'll be watching you
From now on

Please white out my mind
Please white out my mind

Take a million, take a few
Well we can't be running around for nothing, buddy
And don't tell me
You've got nothing to give me now
Well we can't be running around for nothing, buddy

And from now on
You'll be skipping round in figure eights
And he'll be watching you
From now on

Please white out my mind
Please white out my mind

And from now on
You'll be skipping round in figure eights
And he'll be watching you
From now on

Please white out my mind
Please white out my mind
Track Name: Takotsubo
I'm not sick of being human
I'm only sick of breathing dread
There's fewer days 'til my head expires
Than I know that you have left
Well I'm standing in my closet
Just to see how small I was
In a room where all that's bigger
Is your conscious brave enough

When it's dirty flooded through your ears
And all my time's with you
Painful infatuation
Is why your expectation's bruised

Unquestionable patience
Aren't you battered from giving up
You're gracious living proof
That I've wasted just enough
Leant sturdiness to doubt and gave
Brittle grounds to murder
Of every place that stood a chance
Of having us remember

The spirit of a misplaced mistress
Guiding you to hell
The echoes only so far
So you never get to tell

Oh so young and painful
Is the blame in your eyes still dark
I've wasted here for years but still
The coldest places start
Divided between senses
Won't you give me back my sight
Living over me for years
Honey, brightness isn't bright
You know that it's poison
It's regret made low to taste
And now it's all I know
So you'll digest it in just this way
There's nothing here for pleasure
Does nothing here exist
Decrepit and disdained I've been
White and I've been missed

If days are longer now that it's
The future in my head
I'm not sick of being human
I'm sick of breathing dread
