Forget the words when you find your walls have caved in You told yourself no! well who's counting? you're still awake hoping that they find you dead when did you find faith? well who's looking? kill your ego (cut it down) take a step back and find yourself in wasted moments (you’re wasted now) hold you up to the flames you’ll burn slow bury me bury me bury me in useless words and numbers, it’s all in your head torn apart, disengaged, rearranged, oceans away from your carcass drifting away further away from always Picking up the pieces And I don't really give a damn About anything you've told them Rewind to when it all began Fucking up the programme And I don't really give a damn The bigger you grow the lesser you know (for what it’s worth) The bigger you grow the lesser you know (just do your worst) Forget the words when you find your walls have caved in You told yourself no. well who's counting? you're still awake hoping that they find you dead when did you find faith? well who's looking? kill your ego (cut it down) take a step back and find yourself in wasted moments (you’re wasted now) hold you up to the flames you’ll burn slow Sell yourself a lie that you're living in Covered your eyes you think you’re weaker when All the ties you lost were buried deep Freedom’s your rope as a noose around your neck Crowned yourself in people you think give a shit You're better off living ignorant than innocent For a moment I was sure I'm sure you’re not even a name Picking up the pieces And I don't really give a damn About anything you've told them Rewind to when it all began Fucking up the programme And I don't really give a damn The bigger you grow the lesser you know

Bored bored bored bored, out of my mind I never thought I'd ever see the great decline I’m sick sick sick, sick to the bone Sick of always having to feel all alone I’m bored bored bored bored, out of my mind I never thought I'd ever see the great decline I’m sick sick sick, sick to the bone Sick of always having to feel all alone Sick of sinking, rearranging I don’t ever want to see you drowning Help us never to forget Let’s cut through all of the bullshit We’ll grab them all by the horns Will they ever know what they stood on Will they ever get it in their heads Unloved mistake Burnt into history All disgraced Left forgotten Retrace your steps to find there’s nothing there When its dead you’ll find your worn-out phrases Fade away, fade away with every note they play Know that they will betray and say your name in vain All I've left to give was silence Bored bored bored bored, out of my mind I never thought i’d ever see the great decline i’m sick sick sick, sick to the bone sick of always having to feel all alone Sick of sinking, rearranging I don’t ever wanna see you drowning Help us never to forget Let’s cut through all of the bullshit We’ll grab them all by the horns Will they ever know what they stood on Will they ever get it in their heads And end the agony And end the agony And end the agony And end the agony And end the agony

Oh why would you do anything you're told The voice on air has got an even tighter grip on you The noose on your neck has made its way around Pointless words have worn us out We're done with, all that shit Who's pulling on your strings Object all you want but it's not done I count my lucky stars I’ll never meet the best version of you Why would you? Oh why would you? Why would you? Take everything, it’s yours I’m tying up loose ends I’m burning the rope Never meant a single word you said I’ve got nothing to prove You took it all from me Grow a goddamn spine of your own And make amends with your feel good friends Never meant a single word you said I’ve got nothing to prove You took it all from me When all is said and done, it's all the same The ignorance coursing through your veins You or I — who takes the blame? One goes up, the other tastes the flames Call it an ending Reach out for something withered Sing to the masses You're selling but I'm not buying Should we run, we run, we run and call it quits now? Well I’ll walk, not talk I’lll take my time and walk on Breathe in new life Breathe in new Breathe in new life Take everything, it’s yours I’m tying up loose ends I’m burning the rope Never meant a single word you said I’ve got nothing to prove You took it all from me Grow a goddamn spine of your own And make amends with your feel good friends Never meant a single word you said I’ve got nothing to prove You did it all for me

A ghost in the shell in my head Its all in my head Shades of a past that we wont share A thorn in my side you can’t pick We're running against We're running against the concrete Try when your feet have taken a fall Blunder away your winnings from all It's not a race to heaven my friend Means to an end We're not the end Its not the end Go nice and slow It’s okay I’ll take my time I’ll wait in the dirt Wait in the dirt Wait in the dirt I’ll take my time Go nice and slow Take all the time we need Let me be the one to break you Honestly it’s time to let go Swallow people whole Digging graves Oh what a tragedy Let me be the one to break you Honestly it's time Wasted time on our end The path you walk was paved in gold Paid for by the lies you sold Lies you sold When we’re wiped from your memories Why is there blood on our end? When the knife’s in your hand? In your hand Wonder how we all lost the plot Left you hanging by the wayside Guessing that we're all blurry eyed Swallow people whole Digging graves Oh what a tragedy Let me be the one to break you Honestly it's time We built you up just to watch you fall And tear it up from the inside We’re not content just to watch you crawl We’re not condemned We built you up just to watch We built you up just to watch you Go nice and slow It’s okay. I’ll take my time I’ll wait in the dirt

Is this what you wanted? You talk. Can you walk? But it’s what I needed. A new walk to talk in your fucking game I know you want this, how you mislead us Give praise, to my other half Ripped apart by a maniac Finding room for chances Self-confidence with no second guesses Retrace to my selfish ways Lay alone now i feel betrayed Reach for someone to blame Take aim, take aim, take aim, take aim Take aim, take aim, take aim, take aim Suffocate, disconnect Bastardize, all your facts Suffocate, disconnect Bastardize, all your facts Suffocate, disconnect Bastardize, all your facts Broken, torn apart, my scars are open cut me up and have your way Get away As time releases seconds, minutes away Get away I’m the first man in town, take no chances with me Suffocate, disconnect Bastardize, all your facts (the voice in your head) So listen up! (listen up) retribution is my only obsession neck deep in all these weightless possessions desolate when on the highest heavens I don’t think you comprehend, fast forward past present tense Actions have no consequence, I’ve disregarded any likely objections The only resolution's violent discretion. Absolution just follows resentment So give it up! (give it up) Follow the voice in your head. Way. Get away. As time releases seconds, minutes away Get away I’m the first man in town, there’s no fucking with me With me I’m reticent You’re not innocent I’m reticent You’re not innocent I’m reticent You’re not innocent If I’m going down, well I’m bringing you with me I’m reticent You’re not innocent I’m reticent You’re not innocent I’m reticent You’re not innocent If I’m going down, well I’m bringing you with me

about

Chaos and catharsis. Deconstruction and renewal. Enter one of Singapore’s most beloved post-hardcore bands. Between their 2009 debut EP Phoenix and their 2015 full-length Welcome The Ironists, CARACAL has changed line-ups countless times, ripping themselves up again and again, forever searching for an elusive, calming creative balance.

The latest EP bears witness to those turbulent and emotionally violent years in between. It is the sound of them tearing themselves up once again from skin to bone, carving all that anger, helplessness, confusion and things unsaid into some form of redeemable flesh. As with CARACAL, the end result is always honest and brutal. Maybe this time, just maybe, they’ve managed to outrun their demons.
