    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

The night, it comes upon me
Only me in winter’s keeping
Sorrow is as sorrow always does

A cool and misty mooring
My ship is laid to sleeping
At rest against the sand of stars above

Oh, I know the truth confuses
Oh, in the cover of darkness, we retreat

A soul of weary travel
And, a smile of deep misgiving
I've taken more than she could ever give

Her boards are near to swollen
And, every nail is rusting
That part of her must die so we may live

Oh, I know the truth confuses
Oh, in the cover of darkness, we retreat

I lay my last beside her
And, she's cool against my body
Silent, but the rude and whispery wind

Although I know the answer
Still, I ask to be forgiven
I listen, but the answer's never clear

Oh, I know the truth confuses
Oh, in the cover of darkness, we retreat

I know the truth...
I know the truth...

"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”
