Takes One To Know One

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    CD comes in a recycled card black and white printed slipcase, with album art printed on the CD - cheap & cheerful if you're into this format.

    Includes unlimited streaming of GONE via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
    ships out within 1 day
    edition of 50 

      £3 GBP or more 

     

  • 28 page, hardback book edition, featuring photography & lyrics to the songs on GONE.

    It's expensive because that's how how much they cost to make & ship. No profit is made on this item.

    5 books have been made for the band and we expect to produce a very small single figure number for sale to the public, for the wealthy, discerning English country music fan.

    This book edition comes with the CD and the download included.

    How it works is, you place the order & pay. Then we order the book (individually) from the printer. It takes 7 days to arrive. It will then be signed, have a CD added and posted out to you. So it'll take a little time for you to get it.

    It will be worth the wait, though. It's very beautiful.

lyrics

Here's to every drunk decision you ever made
And every shift that you worked and never got paid
All the psychos walking round who somehow get laid
And every midnight you wake up and don't feel afraid

It takes one to know one, so I guess you don't see
Anything I am, you're going to be
You never cared less for saving yourself
So who on this earth is gonna save me?

I'm a hammer and nails, I'm a needle and thread
I’m changing the strings on my memory instead
You’re the wind in my sails, the voice in my head
You’re the colour I see when everything’s red

It takes one to know one, so I guess you don't see
Anything I am, you're going to be
You never cared less for saving yourself
So who on this earth is gonna save me?

I'm a parasite wasp, with you as my host
Wait here while I change, to a still of a ghost
If I’m not back in an hour, increase the dose
I doubt you can save me, though, maybe, almost

It takes one to know one, so I guess you don't see
Anything I am, you're going to be
You never cared less for saving yourself
So who on this earth is gonna save me?

It takes one to know one, so I guess you don't see
Anything I am, you're going to be
You never cared less for saving yourself
So who on this earth is gonna save me?
