about

The incredible Not Waving But Drowning have returned! After a long hiatus, they graced the world with some reunion shows in 2018 along with a single song as part of a killer 7" compilation, and now they've cooked up two brand new tunes to remind us of why they dominated so much during their heyday.

The new single, Bright Eyed And Bushy Tailed is a quick romp; mathy and heavy, showing off their chops while the b-side, A Secret And A Truth, takes the time to experiment a bit more with some vocal melodies and some longer, brooding passages. Truly a great re-introduction to the band or a great spot to join them if you're unfamiliar with their previous output!

Track Name: Bright Eyed And Bushy Tailed
I am feeling like death
I am catching this fire
We're looking past the sun for light
We continue to travel
It's looking to unravel
Everything here is out of sight
We're wanting to be
They're looking at me
I am pouring the fuel on top
Taken this from he
Taken this from she
Taking the balance out from under the
Bright Eyed Bushy Tailed
We're trapped in these times
These elaborate rhymes
Are pushing us past the point
Let's climb into this
Put down on our list
What our fear is
I am feeling the flow
A tapered control
Somewhat feeling tricked
I am dead in these eyes
Unleashing your prize
We're making the collar fit
Taking the time to set this all straight
It's not going to happen because it's out fate
Breaking it down to the very last piece
Chasing your monsters into the deep
Taking the torch out of everyone's hand
Beating the entrants to make our stand
Leaving the sphere with all our arms
Glad to stop them we're taking charge
Facing the crowd with back side front
Insufficient praise stupid stunts
Never return to pay the bill
Burn their flesh on the dying hill
Taking all of this BRIGHT EYED BUSHY TAILED
Track Name: A Secret And A Truth
A secret and a truth
Taking and thriving our subtle breath is a CHARGE
Framing the absence of our control is a CHARGE
We're caving the abstract it's hollowed and it's CHARGED
Playing the devil is a secret and a TRUTH
To want and have the same
She is willing to fly with me
Bur we're stricken by our own goals
It's not I the cards she sees
Well it's not in the card that I see right here
And I feel it take on me
And she falls and she falls for me
Let's rip and replace our truths
Masterpiece in a theater behind the scenes
Climbing the tower to the bottom of hesitations
It's a time out
It's a plain day
We are happy to assist
It's the fall out
It's the growth train
We are happy to assist
One time
It is the max time
We are starting to resist
We're in a cold start
I am force out
We are going to persist
Taking and thriving our subtle breath is a CHARGE
Framing the absence of our control is a CHARGE
We're caving the abstract it's hollowed and it's CHARGED
Subtleties grip the eyes
Of a passionate man's demise
Floundering in the wall of possibilities
We uncover the next phase of tranquilities
Unscathed I whisper to myself
A floating memory pulls my sleeve
The sequence is arranged to bottle the
It's a time out
It's a plain day
We are happy to assist
It's the fall out
It's the growth train
We are happy to assist
One time
It is the max time
We are starting to resist
We're in a cold start
I am force out
We are going to persist
Masterpiece in a theater behind the scenes
Climbing the tower to the bottom of hesitations
