about

Old Crows' Debut EP!

Volume One

Recorded in a bedroom in Southampton, this EP is a snapshot of what Old Crows is all about. Having started out with just these 5 songs, an idea and a drive to show people what we can do, this band has gone from strength to strength and these 5 songs have started to define us as people and musicians.

It is to be enjoyed
It is to be played where ever you like
It is for everyone and anyone

Most of all..... It's fun ;)

Thank you

Old Crows

Track Name: X-Wing
Sounded like science fiction,
We're one in the same.
Both fighting our battles, both pushing for fortune and fame
It's not my intention, don't try to provoke me
The order is broken, don't turn this against me
How do you make it look that easy

Ready to break, won't suffocate this time
(Time will always tell)
Your words to late, bury the hate this time
(Beg for redemption)
Empire of dreams, echo the screams in your eyes
(I won't choke on my words)
Empire of dreams, echo the screams in your lives
(Scream my intention)

I will slowly lose control
Watch my anger take it's toll
You're gonna listen to me
And this tirade of fury
Who's laughing now?

I'm listening
You know nothing
Won't hold back
One more attack

Ready to break, won't suffocate this time
(Time will always tell)
Your words to late, bury the hate this time
(Beg for redemption)
Empire of dreams, echo the screams in your eyes
(I won't choke on my words)
Empire of dreams, echo the screams in your lives
(Scream my intention)

I will slowly lose control
Watch my anger take it's toll
You're gonna listen to me
And this tirade of fury
Who's laughing now?
Track Name: Revive!
You have your uses
And I'll take what I can find
I'm singing at the top of my lungs
And I'm gonna deny your rights

Stay alive for the lowest price
And do I f**king care?
Give me a feeling
Give me a reason
Give me a moment to care

I'll be waiting til the time is right
I'll be waiting til the dead of night

Trying to change or is this what you want to be?
Don't need a problem to exist between you and me
A chance to revive yourself
A chance to be somebody else
Scream out to find
This will be the last time

Confronted not controlled
(These words will fall on deaf ears)
It's like you cannot be told
(We are still f**king here)
*REPEAT*

I'll be waiting til the time is right
I'll be waiting til the dead of night

Trying to change or is this what you want to be?
Don't need a problem to exist between you and me
A chance to revive yourself
A chance to be somebody else
Scream out to find
This will be the last time

*BRIDGE*

I'll be waiting til the time is right
I'll be waiting til the dead of night

Trying to change or is this what you want to be?
Don't need a problem to exist between you and me
A chance to revive yourself
A chance to be somebody else
Scream out to find
This will be the last time
Track Name: Athenia
I'm going home
But what am I going back to
Back to what I know
Another afterglow

I'm going home
But what am I going back to
A city held at war
I'm not safe in these walls
I'm not safe any more

My home is broken
And through the lies
We're set for destruction
And are there still gods in the skies

These streets are never safe
Show me another face
12 ways to wage this war on everything and everyone

Show me the way to know myself

Forgetting the lessons you preach to the people
A million answers at once
I'm not gonna swallow your lies
Athenia, you're no god of mine

Athenia you're no god of mine

These protectors are fake
And your reaction's too late
Countries in contrast
It's not black and white
As it's staring us all in the face

Goddess of wisdom and war
None of us listen anymore
12 ways to wage this war on everything and everyone

Show me the way to know myself

Forgetting the lessons you preach to the people
A million answers at once
I'm not gonna swallow your lies
Athenia, you're no god of mine

(x2)

Athenia you're no god of mine
Track Name: Bowsers Castle
At the gates, the tower's are burning
Fired up, the tension is rising
Bullets rain, I'm getting closer
Won't stop til this fight is over

Do you hear this
Do you fear this
I'm closing in to end this
I burn all I see til the embers are the end of me

Open your mind, you
Can't go back again (x2)
Try and you'll find you
Can't go back again (x2)
Fire in his eyes

Battleground stretching before me
I hunt this adversary
A hero to some, the ending of you
Built up to break your rule

Do you hear this
Do you fear this
I'm closing in to end this
I burn all I see til the embers are the end of me

Open your mind, you
Can't go back again (x2)
Try and you'll find you
Can't go back again (x2)
Fire in his eyes

Open your mind

Can't go back (x4)
Track Name: Full On
Are you f**king listening?
Am I just making noises
I'm so sick of battling
And your all out of choices

A liability
We're the majority
It's out there for all to see
And this is how it's gonna be

This can't go on
We've been here too long

We're going down
The same conversation
This has got to end now
End the contagion

You're freaking me
When I'm searching serenity
I f**king guarantee
That this is how it's gonna be

This can't go on
We've been here too long
This can't go on

Why has it got to this extent
Left there with no defense
Why am I the only one who's hearing you out?

Seen you dragged so low
Kicked when you're down
There's no understanding
There's a system that holds you here
And I know you want this ending

This can't go on
We've been here too long
This can't go on

Are you f**king listening?
Am I just making noises
I'm so sick of battling
*RAGE*




What follows is a note to anyone who reads these lyrics;

If you've gotten this deep in the EP that you've checked the lyrics, you're way more dedicated than we thought possible. Most people just aren't bothered. But this serves as a thank you to everyone that took the time to have a listen to what we love doing, and hope to continue to do in the future, for as long as we are able to.

We love being Old Crows, we love making music, and we all love the effect it has on people just like you as you read this. It's what makes human beings special, pulls us together in weird little pubs and clubs and massive stadiums, forms bonds between people at opposite ends of the earth and brings out emotions you never knew you had. It's been a great journey so far and we are only just beginning....

If you have read all of this, thank you again. You are now obligated to post on our Facebook page saying you've persevered through the most inane and pathetic dribble we could manage and deserve a present....

Genuinely, if you've read this, get in touch, tell us what you've thought, post on the page and ask for your free gift.... I'll probably buy you a pint ;)

Until the next EP..... Thank you

Mike - Old Crows

PS; You rock... ;)
