A Better Way 05:10
Scan my thoughts scan my memory Piece together what you find Hold my gaze while you talk to me Watch my history unwind Just find a better way Just find a better way I let you push me for the details You chose the ones to focus on And now you're looking for the right words Let me tell you there are none Just find a better way Just find a better way Just find a better way Take me back I'll tell you how it feels You stoke the fire I'll let it burn I'll let you see the hand the devil deals And ask for nothing in return Just find a better way Just find a better way Just find a better way I could tell you how we stood in blissful innocence The faithful young I could tell you how it feels to have the only Mother To see her son And how the streets where I was raised became a prison to the Only one I was the only one I was the only one..... Scan my thoughts scan my memory Piece together what you find Hold my gaze as you talk to me Watch my history unwind But just find a better way

Dear Mum 01:32
The lights in the distance Only last for an instant But the sound they bring won't go away At only fifteen The things I have seen Can't take anymore gonna run away
3.
From a safe distance Of maybe a hundred years They will come to know A twist of fate A momentary lapse of concentration Now I stand alone Just a step away Just a step away Nerves of steel Shredded like paper and blown away By the storm On the edge looking down You could fall at any time One more push and you're gone (No white stone) Just a step away (Will be laid) Just a step away (No white stone) Just a step away (Will be laid) Just a step away (No white stone) From a safe distance Of maybe twenty paces They will come to know
4.
You won't see from the safety of a century away Into the mouth of a monochrome mechanised melee That swallows you whole or chews you up and spits you out again Never to get back home never to be the same And all it does is take All it does is take First your heart then your head next you find your nerve has gone (All it does is take) You feel you've lost your sense of right you've lost your sense of wrong (All it does is take) Walk away you seal your fate a lesson to us other men (All it does is take) God forbid we should find our way out of this Hell they've put us in And all it does is take Live or die, it's not a choice you get to make Within constant range there's only so much you can take With no reserve, the only choice is try to live You've made a crime of having nothing left to give And all it does is take All it does is take You've offered us no explanation, no excuse We consider you to be of no more military use The facts have been collected the evidence now weighed There is in our opinion an example to be made It's useless to contend You've nothing to defend Prepare to meet your end at dawn The morning sun rises up to catch our breath Reminds us all that all we deal with here is death We may deserve the chance to live Until they find you've just got nothing left to give One blank, one blank round or maybe more It's what you all, it's what you'll all be hoping for You'll feel it, you'll feel it in the rifle's kick So aim it true, aim it true to make it quick All it does is take All it does is take All it does is take All it does is take All it does is take All it does is take All it does is take All it does is take All it does is take All it does is take All it does is take All it does is take All it does is take All it does is take

about

Sick To Death is our new 4 track concept EP tackling the subject of 'shell shock' and it's consequences during WW1.

There's a subtle but conscious shift in musical style yet still very much the Freedom To Glide our fans have come to know. Lyrically, the songs are as poetic and image evoking as ever. It's a story that we felt had to be met head on and with the respect and sensitivity it deserves.

With 'Sick To Death' EP we continue our theme of 100 years of war and conflict and it is released ahead of our next album in 2015.

This tragic chapter in our military history came to the forefront of our minds when we spent an afternoon at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire. We sat speechless looking at the memorial to those who were ‘Shot At Dawn’. A lot of those who were executed were front line seasoned soldiers that just couldn’t go on any more, they'd given everything they had. They weren't cowards, they were suffering from 'Shell Shock' or 'Post Traumatic Stress Disorder' as we now know it to be. Months of research opened our eyes to the kangaroo court proceedings of the time where there was little or no legal representation or even medical examination for the accused. Shell Shock was a poorly understood phenomenon and dealt with in the most extreme way.

So many boys and young men were ‘made an example of’.....Lest we forget.
