about

The Greylings was recorded over Christmas 2012, after the completion of our debut album. We relished the opportunity to ignore computers and synthesisers and vocoders, and to put together five songs that were spontaneous, warm and honest. Recorded primarily in Josh's bedroom in Northcote, Melbourne, and mixed and mastered at Jack The Bear's with our best friend in the entire world, Andrei Eremin, the release is our proudest work to date.

We hope you like it.

Track Name: This Sinking Ship
Morning broke like a shot
Like the starting line is all we got

We pretended we were holding on
But some words don't translate
And it's not always just right or wrong

So colour me in like the lines are there
Or just hold me up like your really care

But every morning I can see the cracks
The light through the window
The panic attacks again

Right now I am deserting the ship
And I will find out where it's leaking
While we're sinking like a stone

And I'll bring you home

Find me something I can read
Some fantasy I can believe

And I'll hold on oh so tight
Till everything feels alright again

Right now I am deserting the ship
And I will find out where it's leaking
While we're sinking like a stone

And I will go down if I need to
And I will touch the ground
If we are all that we can be, you and me
We'll be fine

And I'll bring you home
Track Name: World War
I swear you were spitting venom
I guess I was pretty drunk
You kept saying that you loved me
I kept saying that's enough

And all the while the band just marched right on
And all the while we hummed to different songs

You told me you were angry
You swore I buried all your hurt
While I dug a little deeper
Until I swallowed all the dirt

And all the while our bones they turned to dust
And all the while our friends just drift from us

But we'll be so happy
You'll find Jesus, then you'll tell me
Let's just wait for some World War
And all our problems will be taken care of
So why would you fight for me?
You'd be so happy, so right, so complete
And you swore that could never be
I read the book, baby

So we'll be so happy
You'll go to heaven and you won't invite me
So I guess I'll wait for that World War
Cause what more do I have to wait for?
So why would you fight for me?
You say you've got solutions like I've got collusions
And I know you do not trust me
I read the book, baby
Track Name: All Figured Out
I was so certain, had it all figured out
We built a kingdom and we wore the crowns

But if all that's left is an empty chest in an empty house
Then I guess that we had mediocrity to hold our hands

We better go
They want a show
And I will not let them down

But it's over now

And if all that's left is an empty chest in an empty house
Then I guess that we got mediocrity to hold our hands

We better go
They want a show
And I will not let them down

But it's over now
Track Name: All Of The Birds
I can't believe all of our histories
I feel your bones under my bed
Oh the winter, howling and blistering
I can't believe a thing that you said

All of the birds, they have flown south
As you took the words out of my foul mouth
And I can't believe anything that you said
I can't believe a thing that you said

And all of the roads that we drove
I never felt close, and we never got home again

All of the birds, they have flown south
As you took the words out of my foul mouth
And I can't believe anything that you said
I can't believe anything thing that you said
Track Name: Doubt
You sold me out
So I still have doubts

You broke me down
So I still have doubts

My mother she told me the water was warm
My father he told me to sin is to come undone
I lied again, I lied again

You said the truth did not need proof
So I still have doubts

And baby I'm sorry still
I will be til we don't have doubts

My mother she told me the water was warm
My father he told me to sin is to come undone
I lied again, I lied again
