An Open Letter To Those We Once Respected

from by Into The East

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    We don't have to tell you how great it is to stick a CD in your new fangled hi-fidelity stereophonic listening system, or how advanced one feels when your car stereo sucks the shiny 12cm music thing into the dash as if by magic! (It's actually magic, but THEY don't want you to know that...)

    You already know the joy.

    But, when you get this baby you'll be bringing home a beautiful, lovingly designed, three-fold digipak that'll make most of your friends and 43% of your enemies wet their pants in jealousy. There's also a gorgeous 16 page booklet containing all the words so you'll already be one up at the local karaoke bar/club/festival.

    It's basically like bringing home a new child... But, better.

lyrics

I’ll be the corner of rooms
I’ll be the whistling tunes
I’ll be the whispers behind my own back
Be the assurance that they seem to lack
But, I will not be any other
I will be

I’ll be the burn of my ears
Be the divide of my peers
I’ll be the in-between lines they have spoken
I’ll be the butt of the jokes they are jokin’
But, I will not be any other
I will be

So, screw you all to the wall of short-sighted
Defeatist and insecure, petty and mean
My boots fit just fine

So, if you’re sitting out there
Eyeing the ground with your nose in the air
I speak on behalf of the crowd
“If you can’t get into it then get the hell out”
And, as the door swings you’ll hear us all sing

Screw you all to the wall of short-sighted
Defeatist and insecure, petty and mean
My boots fit just

Screw you all to the wall of short-sighted
Defeatist and insecure. Petty, and mean
My boots fit just fine

"McBride is the voice that races ahead excited, Woller is the anchor; he pulls back just a tad – together they find the perfect place to pitch and rest each song... each track [is] strong – no duds"
Simon Sweetman, Dominion Post

“There's no escaping just how good this album is”
Mike Alexander, New Zealand Herald
